Famous quotes containing the words military and/or council:

    The military and the clergy cause us much annoyance; the clergy and the military, they empty our wallets and rob our intelligence.
    Franz Grillparzer (1791–1872)

    I haven’t seen so much tippy-toeing around since the last time I went to the ballet. When members of the arts community were asked this week about one of their biggest benefactors, Philip Morris, and its requests that they lobby the New York City Council on the company’s behalf, the pas de deux of self- justification was so painstakingly choreographed that it constituted a performance all by itself.
    Anna Quindlen (b. 1952)
