Famous quotes containing the words woodrow wilson and/or wilson:

    The government of the United States at present is a foster-child of the special interests. It is not allowed to have a voice of its own. It is told at every move, “Don’t do that, You will interfere with our prosperity.” And when we ask: “where is our prosperity lodged?” a certain group of gentlemen say, “With us.”
    Woodrow Wilson (1856–1924)

    Once something becomes discernible, or understandable, we no longer need to repeat it. We can destroy it.
    —Robert Wilson (b. 1941)
