Famous quotes containing the word washington:

    Have you ever been in love? A doll in Washington Heights once got a fox fur out of me.
    Jay Dratler, U.S. screenwriter, Samuel Hoffenstein (1889–1947)

    Political life at Washington is like political life in a suburban vestry.
    Oscar Wilde (1854–1900)

    The city of Washington is in some respects self-contained, and it is easy there to forget what the rest of the United States is thinking about. I count it a fortunate circumstance that almost all the windows of the White House and its offices open upon unoccupied spaces that stretch to the banks of the Potomac ... and that as I sit there I can constantly forget Washington and remember the United States.
    Woodrow Wilson (1856–1924)
