Involved

Famous quotes containing the word involved:

    I cannot exaggerate the waste of the President’s time and the consumption of his nervous vitality involved in listening to congressmen’s intercession as to local appointments. Why should the President have to have his time taken up in a discussion over ... who shall be the postmistress of Devil’s Lake, in North Dakota? How should he be able to know ... who is best fitted to fill such a place?
    William Howard Taft (1857–1930)

    University degrees are a bit like adultery: you may not want to get involved with that sort of thing, but you don’t want to be thought incapable.
    Peter, Sir Imbert (b. 1933)

    Don’t get involved in partial problems, but always take flight to where there is a free view over the whole single great problem, even if this view is still not a clear one.
    Ludwig Wittgenstein (1889–1951)
