agreement

A Quote by William Butler Yeats on agreement, foolishness, garden, and love

Down by the salley gardens my love and I did meet; She passed the salley gardens with little snow-white feet. She bid me take love easy, as the leaves grow on the tree But I, being young and foolish, with her would not agree.

William Butler Yeats (1865 - 1939)

A Quote by Wendell Lewis Wilkie on agreement, colors, freedom, and preparation

Freedom is an indivisible word. If we want to enjoy it, and fight for it, we must be prepared to extend it or everyone, whether they are rich or poor, whether they agree with us or not, no matter what their race or the color of their skin.

A Quote by U.S. Supreme Court on agreement, community, internet, and speech

We agree with the District Court's conclusion that the [Communications Decency Act] places an unacceptably heavy burden on protected speech... In Sable [v. FCC] we remarked that the speech restriction at issue there amounted to "burning the house to roast the pig." The CDA, casting a far darker shadow over free speech, threatens to torch a large segment of the Internet community.

A Quote by unknown on agreement, compromise, friendship, good, intelligence, justice, principles, reason, sacrifice, simplicity, time, and work

THE Hunter and the Bear . . . The Sory of a Perfect Compromise The hunter sighted his quarry, and raised his rifle to fire. The bear, raising a paw, said, "Now just a minute friend; can't we talk this over like two rational, intelligent, progressive beings?" The hunter lowered his gun, and scratching his head replied, "What's to talk over?" "Well", said the bear, "for example, what do you want to shoot me for?" "That's very simple. I want a bearskin coat". "And I," said the bear, "merely want a good breakfast. Let's sit down together, I'm sure we can reach a common point of view that will satisfy us both". So they sat down together to work out an agreement. After a time the bear got up all alone. They had reached a compromise. The bear had his breakfast; the hunter had on his fur coat. You know where the hunter was. He was eaten alive by his compromise position. You will be eaten alive also, if you sacrifice your principles for any reason. THE END DOES NOT JUSTIFY THE MEANS.

A Quote by Thomas Carlyle on agreement and people

I don't like to talk much with people who always agree with me. It is amusing to coquette with an echo for a little while, but one soon tires of it.
