Famous quotes containing the word recall:

    Liberalism—it is well to recall this today—is the supreme form of generosity; it is the right which the majority concedes to minorities and hence it is the noblest cry that has ever resounded in this planet. It announces the determination to share existence with the enemy; more than that, with an enemy which is weak.
    José Ortega Y Gasset (1883–1955)

    Who will remember happiness?
    I can recall that they are dead.
    I know that heaven cracked one day,
    And only God knows what they said.
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)

    The rank and file have let their servants become their masters and dictators.... Provision should be made in all union constitutions for the recall of leaders. Big salaries should not be paid. Career hunters should be driven out, as well as leaders who use labor for political ends. These types are menaces to the advancement of labor.
    Mother Jones (1830–1930)
