Famous quotes containing the words reston and/or james:

    In foreign policy you have to wait twenty-five years to see how it comes out.
    —James Reston (b. 1909)

    If we remembered everything, we should on most occasions be as ill off as if we remembered nothing. It would take us as long to recall a space of time as it took the original time to elapse, and we should never get ahead with our thinking. All recollected times undergo, accordingly, what M. Ribot calls foreshortening; and this foreshortening is due to the omission of an enormous number of facts which filled them.
    —William James (1842–1910)
