Famous quotes containing the words world, methodist and/or council:

    ... we shall never become an immense power in the world until we concentrate all our money and editorial forces upon one great national daily newspaper, so we can sauce back our opponents every day in the year; once a month or once a week is not enough.
    Susan B. Anthony (1820–1906)

    When Methodist preachers come down
    A-preaching that drinking is sinful,
    I’ll wager the rascals a crown
    They always preach best with a skinful.
    Oliver Goldsmith (1730?–1774)

    Daughter to that good Earl, once President
    Of England’s Council and her Treasury,
    Who lived in both, unstain’d with gold or fee,
    And left them both, more in himself content.

    Till the sad breaking of that Parliament
    Broke him, as that dishonest victory
    At Chaeronea, fatal to liberty,
    Kill’d with report that old man eloquent;—
    John Milton (1608–1674)
