Privileges

Famous quotes containing the word privileges:

    We have been weakened in our resistance to the professional anti-Communists because we know in our hearts that our so-called democracy has excluded millions of citizens from a normal life and the normal American privileges of health, housing and education.

    The first Commandment is—never let them get anything on you—
    The second: Graft—get privileges others haven’t got—worm yourself into confidence
    The Third—seem neat and prosperous—as if you had money in the bank—
    John Dos Passos (1896–1970)

    Politics ought to be the part-time profession of every citizen who would protect the rights and privileges of free people and who would preserve what is good and fruitful in our national heritage.
    Dwight D. Eisenhower (1890–1969)
