Famous quotes containing the words anatomy and/or comparative:

    I love to see, when leaves depart,
    The clear anatomy arrive,
    Roy Campbell (1902–1957)

    If you believe that a nation is really better off which achieves for a comparative few, those who are capable of attaining it, high culture, ease, opportunity, and that these few from their enlightenment should give what they consider best to those less favored, then you naturally belong to the Republican Party. But if you believe that people must struggle slowly to the light for themselves, then it seems to me that you are a Democrat.
    Eleanor Roosevelt (1884–1962)
