Famous quotes containing the words general and/or governor:

    Though of erect nature, man is far above the plants. For man’s superior part, his head, is turned toward the superior part of the world, and his inferior part is turned toward the inferior world; and therefore he is perfectly disposed as to the general situation of his body. Plants have the superior part turned towards the lower world, since their roots correspond to the mouth, and their inferior parts towards the upper world.
    Thomas Aquinas (c. 1225–1274)

    There are times when even the most potent governor must wink at transgression, in order to preserve the laws inviolate for the future.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)
