Famous quotes containing the word executive:

    To me the sole hope of human salvation lies in teaching Man to regard himself as an experiment in the realization of God, to regard his hands as God’s hand, his brain as God’s brain, his purpose as God’s purpose. He must regard God as a helpless Longing, which longed him into existence by its desperate need for an executive organ.
    George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)

    When you give power to an executive you do not know who will be filling that position when the time of crisis comes.
    Ernest Hemingway (1899–1961)
