Famous quotes containing the word capital:

    As our boys and men are all expecting to be Presidents, so our girls and women must all hold themselves in readiness to preside in the White House; and in no city in the world can honest industry be more at a discount than in this capital of the government of the people.
    Jane Grey Swisshelm (1815–1884)

    Industry has operated against the artisan in favor of the idler, and also in favor of capital and against labor. Any mechanical invention whatsoever has been more harmful to humanity than a century of war.
    Rémy De Gourmont (1858–1915)

    A good many have been thrown out on their broad capital bases.
    John Dos Passos (1896–1970)
