Famous quotes containing the words jay chapman, chapman, john and/or jay:

    The worst enemy of good government is not our ignorant foreign voter, but our educated domestic railroad president, our prominent business man, our leading lawyer.
    —John Jay Chapman (1862–1933)

    In the adjustment of the new order of things, we women demand an equal voice; we shall accept nothing less.
    —Carrie Chapman Catt (1859–1947)

    Ambivalence reaches the level of schizophrenia in our treatment of violence among the young. Parents do not encourage violence, but neither do they take up arms against the industries which encourage it. Parents hide their eyes from the books and comics, slasher films, videos and lyrics which form the texture of an adolescent culture. While all successful societies have inhibited instinct, ours encourages it. Or at least we profess ourselves powerless to interfere with it.
    —C. John Sommerville (20th century)

    ... So damn your food and damn your wines,
    Your twisted loaves and twisting vines,
    Your table d’hôte, your à la carte,
    . . . .
    From now on you can keep the lot.
    Take every single thing you’ve got,
    Your land, your wealth, your men, your dames,
    Your dream of independent power,
    And dear old Konrad Adenauer,
    And stick them up your Eiffel Tower.
    —Anthony Jay (b. 1930)
