Famous quotes containing the word contrive:
“Buddhists and Christians contrive to agree about death

Except when practical.”

“[F]or women, like tradesmen, draw in the injudicious to buy their goods by the high value they themselves set upon them.... They endeavor strongly to fix in the minds of their enamoratos their own high value, and then contrive as much as possible to make them believe that they have so many purchasers at hand that the goodsif they do not make hastewill all be gone.”
—Sarah Fielding (17101768)
“The debt was the most sacred obligation incurred during the war. It was by no means the largest in amount. We do not haggle with those who lent us money. We should not with those who gave health and blood and life. If doors are opened to fraud, contrive to close them. But dont deny the obligation, or scold at its performance.”
—Rutherford Birchard Hayes (18221893)
