Reference Department

Famous quotes containing the words reference and/or department:

    In sum, all actions and habits are to be esteemed good or evil by their causes and usefulness in reference to the commonwealth, and not by their mediocrity, nor by their being commended. For several men praise several customs, and, contrarily, what one calls vice, another calls virtue, as their present affections lead them.
    Thomas Hobbes (1579–1688)

    In the great department store of life, baseball is the toy department.
    —Los Angeles Sportscaster. quoted in Independent Magazine (London, Sept. 28, 1991)
