Famous quotes containing the words howard and/or sidney:

    The admission of Oriental immigrants who cannot be amalgamated with our people has been made the subject either of prohibitory clauses in our treaties and statutes or of strict administrative regulations secured by diplomatic negotiations. I sincerely hope that we may continue to minimize the evils likely to arise from such immigration without unnecessary friction and by mutual concessions between self-respecting governments.
    —William Howard Taft (1857–1930)

    In vain thou kindlest all thy smoky fire,
    For virtue hath this better lesson taught,
    Within myself to seek my only hire,
    Desiring nought but how to kill desire.
    —Sir Philip Sidney (1554–1586)
