Famous quotes containing the word washington:

    You men have proved that PT boats have some value in this war. Washington wants you back in the States to build them up. Those are my orders.
    Frank W. Wead (1895?–1947)

    The government is huge, stupid, greedy and makes nosy, officious and dangerous intrusions into the smallest corners of life—this much we can stand. But the real problem is that government is boring. We could cure or mitigate the other ills Washington visits on us if we could only bring ourselves to pay attention to Washington itself. But we cannot.
    —P.J. (Patrick Jake)

    Have you ever been in love? A doll in Washington Heights once got a fox fur out of me.
    Jay Dratler, U.S. screenwriter, Samuel Hoffenstein (1889–1947)
