Famous quotes containing the word minister:

    Before any woman is a wife, a sister or a mother she is a human being. We ask nothing as women but everything as human beings.
    Ida C. Hultin, U.S. minister and suffragist. As quoted in History of Woman Suffrage, vol. 4, ch. 17, by Susan B. Anthony and Ida Husted Harper (1902)

    [T]he dignity of parliament it seems can brook no opposition to it’s power. Strange that a set of men who have made sale of their virtue to the minister should yet talk of retaining dignity!
    Thomas Jefferson (1743–1826)

    But, my dear, you cannot live in isolation from the human race, you know.
