Long Term

Famous quotes containing the words long and/or term:

    The sailor is frankness, the landsman is finesse. Life is not a game with the sailor, demanding the long head—no intricate game of chess where few moves are made in straight-forwardness and ends are attained by indirection, an oblique, tedious, barren game hardly worth that poor candle burnt out in playing it.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    Children, I grant, should be innocent; but when the epithet is applied to men, or women, it is but a civil term for weakness.
    Mary Wollstonecraft (1759–1797)
