Famous quotes containing the word recall:

    Imagining that I could
    A greater with a lesser pang assuage
    Or but to find if withered vein ran blood,
    I tore my body that its wine might cover
    Whatever could recall the lip of lover.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    I shouldn’t want you to be surprised, or to draw any particular inference from my making speeches, or not making speeches, out there. I don’t recall any candidate for President that ever injured himself very much by not talking.
    Calvin Coolidge (1872–1933)

    When you are rich, always remember the days when you were poor, so that there won’t be poor times when you have to recall the days when you were rich.
    Chinese proverb.
