Affairs

Famous quotes containing the word affairs:

    Secrecy is the first essential in affairs of the State.

    George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)

    I repeat that in this sense the most splendid court in Christendom is provincial, having authority to consult about Transalpine interests only, and not the affairs of Rome. A prætor or proconsul would suffice to settle the questions which absorb the attention of the English Parliament and the American Congress.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
