Calls

Famous quotes containing the word calls:

    Whoever won’t fight when the President calls him, deserves to be kicked back in his hole and kept there.
    Lyndon Baines Johnson (1908–1973)

    The demagogue is usually sly, a detractor of others, a professor of humility and disinterestedness, a great stickler for equality as respects all above him, a man who acts in corners, and avoids open and manly expositions of his course, calls blackguards gentlemen, and gentlemen folks, appeals to passions and prejudices rather than to reason, and is in all respects, a man of intrigue and deception, of sly cunning and management.
    James Fenimore Cooper (1789–1851)

    I hate journalists. There is nothing in them but tittering jeering emptiness. They have all made what Dante calls the Great Refusal.... The shallowest people on the ridge of the earth.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
