Famous quotes containing the word organization:

    It is essential that there should be organization of labor. This is an era of organization. Capital organizes and therefore labor must organize.
    Theodore Roosevelt (1858–1919)

    I would wish that the women of our country could embrace ... [the responsibilities] of citizenship as peculiarly their own. If they could apply their higher sense of service and responsibility, their freshness of enthusiasm, their capacity for organization to this problem, it would become, as it should become, an issue of profound patriotism. The whole plane of political life would be lifted.
    Herbert Hoover (1874–1964)

    Since wars begin in the minds of men, it is in the minds of men that the defences of peace must be constructed.
