Contributed

Famous quotes containing the word contributed:

    I’ve tried not to exaggerate the glory of athletes. I’d rather, if I could, preserve a sense of proportion, to write about them as excellent ballplayers, first-rate players. But I’m sure I have contributed to false values—as Stanley Woodward said, “Godding up those ballplayers.”

    Samuel Beckett (1906–1989)

    In my public statements I have earnestly urged that there rested upon government many responsibilities which affect the moral and spiritual welfare of our people. The participation of women in elections has produced a keener realization of the importance of these questions and has contributed to higher national ideals.

    Herbert Hoover (1874–1964)

    For all of them have contributed out of their abundance; but she out of her poverty has put in everything she had, all she had to live on.
