Famous quotes containing the word exercise:

    I talk democracy to these men and women. I tell them that they have the vote, and that theirs is the kingdom and the power and the glory. I say to them “You are supreme: exercise your power.” They say, “That’s right: tell us what to do;” and I tell them. I say “Exercise your vote intelligently by voting for me.” And they do. That’s democracy; and a splendid thing it is too for putting the right men in the right place.
    George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)

    The belief of our Reason is an Exercise of Faith, and Faith is an Act of Reason.
    Joseph Glanvill (1636–1680)

    I will have no Parsons around me but such as drink deep, ride to Hounds and caress the Wives and Daughters of their Parishioners. A Virtuous Parson does nothing to test or exercise the Faith of his Flock.
    Aldous Huxley (1894–1963)
