Famous quotes containing the word washington:

    There can be no greater error than to expect, or calculate, upon real favors from nation to nation. It is an illusion which experience must cure, which a just pride ought to discard.
    —George Washington (1732–1799)

    When you wish upon a star your dreams come true.
    —Ned Washington (190l–1976)

    I do not mean to exclude altogether the idea of patriotism. I know it exists, and I know it has done much in the present contest. But I will venture to assert, that a great and lasting war can never be supported on this principle alone. It must be aided by a prospect of interest, or some reward.
    —George Washington (1732–1799)
