Swiss Citizens

Famous quotes containing the words swiss and/or citizens:

    Nothing sets a person up more than having something turn out just the way it’s supposed to be, like falling into a Swiss snowdrift and seeing a big dog come up with a little cask of brandy round its neck.
    Claud Cockburn (1904–1981)

    What a country calls its vital economic interests are not the things which enable its citizens to live, but the things which enable it to make war. Petrol is more likely than wheat to be a cause of international conflict.
    Simone Weil (1909–1943)
