Famous quotes containing the words james and/or vries:

    The man who knows governments most completely is he who troubles himself least about a definition which shall give their essence. Enjoying an intimate acquaintance with all their particularities in turn, he would naturally regard an abstract conception in which these were unified as a thing more misleading than enlightening.
    —William James (1842–1910)

    There are times when parenthood seems nothing but feeding the mouth that bites you.
    —Peter De Vries (b. 1910)
