Famous quotes containing the words mother and/or jones:

    If your mother tells you to do a thing, it is wrong to reply that you won’t. It is better and more becoming to intimate that you will do as she bids you, and then afterwards act quietly in the matter according to the dictates of your better judgment.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)

    I believe that no man who holds a leader’s position should ever accept favors from either side. He is then committed to show favors. A leader must stand alone.
    —Mother Jones (1830–1930)
