Famous quotes containing the words days and/or observed:

    Alice: I put swimsuits in boxes six days a week.
    George: Yeah. What about Sunday? Maybe then you put yourself in a swimsuit.
    Alice: Oh, not me.
    George: Why? You don’t look good in a swimsuit?
    Alice: Sure I do. I can’t swim.
    George: You’re kidding.
    Alice: I never learned. I was even scared of the duck pond when I was a kid.
    Michael Wilson (1914–1978)

    I ... observed the great beauty of American government to be, that the simple machines of representation, carried through all its parts, gives facility for a being moulded at will to fit with the knowledge of the age; that thus, although it should be imperfect in any or all of its parts, it bears within it a perfect principle the principle of improvement.

    Frances Wright (1795–1852)
