### Famous quotes containing the word points:

“The two great *points* of difference between a democracy and a republic are: first, the delegation of the government, in the latter, to a small number of citizens elected by the rest; secondly, the greater number of citizens and greater sphere of country over which the latter may be extended.”

—James Madison (1751–1836)

“A few ideas seem to be agreed upon. Help none but those who help themselves. Educate only at schools which provide in some form for industrial education. These two *points* should be insisted upon. Let the normal instruction be that men must earn their own living, and that by the labor of their hands as far as may be. This is the gospel of salvation for the colored man. Let the labor not be servile, but in manly occupations like that of the carpenter, the farmer, and the blacksmith.”

—Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)

“the

Decapitated exclamation *points* in that Other Woman’s eyes.”

—Gwendolyn Brooks (b. 1917)
