Famous quotes containing the word contrive:

    The debt was the most sacred obligation incurred during the war. It was by no means the largest in amount. We do not haggle with those who lent us money. We should not with those who gave health and blood and life. If doors are opened to fraud, contrive to close them. But don’t deny the obligation, or scold at its performance.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)

    If you must commit suicide ... always contrive to do it as decorously as possible; the decencies, whether of life or of death, should never be lost sight of.
    George Borrow (1803–1881)

    Buddhists and Christians contrive to agree about death

    Making death their ideal basis for different ideals.
    The Communists however disapprove of death
    Except when practical.
    William Empson (1906–1984)
