Order in Council Controversial Uses

Famous quotes containing the words order in, order and/or council:

    Perchance not he but Nature ailed,
    The world and not the infant failed.
    It was not ripe yet to sustain
    A genius of so fine a strain,
    Who gazed upon the sun and moon
    As if he came unto his own,
    And, pregnant with his grander thought,
    Brought the old order into doubt.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    He had discovered a great law of human action, without knowing it—namely, that in order to make a man or a boy covet a thing, it is only necessary to make the thing difficult to attain. If he had been a great and wise philosopher, like the writer of this book, he would now have comprehended that Work consists of whatever a body is obliged to do and that Play consists of whatever a body is not obliged to do.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)

    There by some wrinkled stones round a leafless tree
    With beards askew, their eyes dull and wild
    Twelve ragged men, the council of charity
    Wandering the face of the earth a fatherless child....
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)
