Famous quotes containing the word objection:

    How dare I read Washington’s campaigns, when I have not answered the letters of my own correspondents? Is not that a just objection to much of our reading? It is a pusillanimous desertion of our work to gaze after our neighbours. It is peeping.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    My only objection to the arrangements there is the two-in-a-bed system. It is bad.... But let your words and conduct be perfectly pure—such as your mother might know without bringing a blush to your cheek.... If not already mentioned, do not tell your mother of the doubling in bed.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)

    The only thing that is unqualifiedly given is the total pervasive quality; and the objection to calling it “given” is that the word suggests something to which it is given, mind or thought or consciousness or whatever, as well possibly as something that gives.
    John Dewey (1859–1952)
