Famous quotes containing the words bill and/or reform:

    All I really want to be is boring. When people talk about me, I’d like them to say, “Carol’s basically a short Bill Bradley.” Or, “Carol’s kind of like Al Gore in a skirt.”
    Carol Moseley-Braun (b. 1947)

    When I go into a museum and see the mummies wrapped in their linen bandages, I see that the lives of men began to need reform as long ago as when they walked the earth. I come out into the streets, and meet men who declare that the time is near at hand for the redemption of the race. But as men lived in Thebes, so do they live in Dunstable today.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
