Famous quotes containing the words peggy noonan and/or noonan:

    Great speeches have always had great soundbites. The problem now is that the young technicians who put together speeches are paying attention only to the soundbite, not to the text as a whole, not realizing that all great soundbites happen by accident, which is to say, all great soundbites are yielded up inevitably, as part of the natural expression of the text. They are part of the tapestry, they aren’t a little flower somebody sewed on.
    Peggy Noonan (b. 1950)

    Now he is a statesman, when what he really wants is to be what most reporters are, adult delinquents.
    —Peggy Noonan (b. 1950)
