Famous quotes containing the words house and/or government:

    Hours before dawn we were woken by the quake.
    My house was on a cliff. The thing could take
    Bookloads off shelves, break bottles in a row.
    Then the long pause and then the bigger shake.
    It seemed the best thing to be up and go.
    William Empson (1906–1984)

    We have passed the time of ... the laisser-faire [sic] school which believes that the government ought to do nothing but run a police force.
    William Howard Taft (1857–1930)
