Famous quotes containing the word exploit:

    What I have absolutely no sympathy with is the legislator, the man who seeks, for his own profit, to exploit the weaknesses of those who are unable to help themselves and then to fasten some moral superscription upon it. This I loathe so much that I cannot conceivably explain how much it is.
    Malcolm Lowry (1909–1957)

    Fools make researches and wise men exploit them.
    —H.G. (Herbert George)

    The American mood, perhaps even the American character, has changed. There are few manifestations any longer of the old American self-assurance which so irritated Dickens.... Instead, there is a sense of frustration so perceptible that even our politicians ... have attempted to exploit it.
    Archibald MacLeish (1892–1982)
