Famous quotes containing the word inquiry:

    The philosophic spirit of inquiry may be traced to brute curiosity, and that to the habit of examining all things in search of food.
    W. Winwood Reade (1838–1875)

    Trial. A formal inquiry designed to prove and put upon record the blameless characters of judges, advocates and jurors.
    Ambrose Bierce (1842–1914)

    An inquiry about the attitude towards the release of so-called political prisoners. I should be very sorry to see the United States holding anyone in confinement on account of any opinion that that person might hold. It is a fundamental tenet of our institutions that people have a right to believe what they want to believe and hold such opinions as they want to hold without having to answer to anyone for their private opinion.
    Calvin Coolidge (1872–1933)
