De San Marcos

Famous quotes containing the words san and/or marcos:

    Mining today is an affair of mathematics, of finance, of the latest in engineering skill. Cautious men behind polished desks in San Francisco figure out in advance the amount of metal to a cubic yard, the number of yards washed a day, the cost of each operation. They have no need of grubstakes.
    Merle Colby, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)

    Life is not a matter of place, things or comfort; rather, it concerns the basic human rights of family, country, justice and human dignity.
    —Imelda Marcos (b. 1929)
