Famous quotes containing the words scope of, services and/or scope:

    The scope of modern government in what it can and ought to accomplish for its people has been widened far beyond the principles laid down by the old “laissez faire” school of political rights, and the widening has met popular approval.
    William Howard Taft (1857–1930)

    It seems I impregnated Marge
    So I do rather feel, by and large,
    Some cash should be tendered
    For services rendered,
    But I can’t quite decide what to charge.
    Anonymous.

    A country survives its legislation. That truth should not comfort the conservative nor depress the radical. For it means that public policy can enlarge its scope and increase its audacity, can try big experiments without trembling too much over the result. This nation could enter upon the most radical experiments and could afford to fail in them.
    Walter Lippmann (1889–1974)
