Famous quotes containing the word industry:

    What more is necessary to make us a happy and prosperous people? Still one thing more … a wise and frugal government, which shall restrain men from injuring one another, which shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from labor the bread it has earned.
    Thomas Jefferson (1743–1826)

    For almost seventy years the life insurance industry has been a smug sacred cow feeding the public a steady line of sacred bull.
    Ralph Nader (b. 1934)

    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)
