Famous quotes containing the words iran, central and/or bank:

    During my administration the most unpleasant and perhaps most dramatic negotiations in which we participated were with the various leaders of Iran after the seizure of American hostages in November 1979. The Algerians were finally chosen as the only intermediaries who were considered trustworthy both by me and the Ayatollah Khomeini. After many aborted efforts, final success was achieved during my last few hours in the White House.
    Jimmy Carter (James Earl Carter, Jr.)

    My solitaria
    Are the meditations of a central mind.
    I hear the motions of the spirit and the sound
    Of what is secret becomes, for me, a voice
    That is my own voice speaking in my ear.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    We bank over Boston. I am safe. I put on my hat.
    I am almost someone going home. The story has ended.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
