Famous quotes containing the words manager and/or general:

    I knew a gentleman who was so good a manager of his time that he would not even lose that small portion of it which the calls of nature obliged him to pass in the necessary-house, but gradually went through all the Latin poets in those moments. He bought, for example, a common edition of Horace, of which he tore off gradually a couple of pages, read them first, and then sent them down as a sacrifice to Cloacina: this was so much time fairly gained.
    Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (1694–1773)

    The esteem of good men is the reward of our worth, but the reputation of the world in general is the gift of our fate.
    François, Duc De La Rochefoucauld (1613–1680)
