A Quote by George Bruce Cortelyou on achievement, automobiles, country, electricity, finance, government, inventions, life, people, privacy, wilderness, and world

This country has achieved its commercial and financial supremacy under a regime of private ownership. It conquered the wilderness, built our railroads, our factories, our public utilities, gave us the telegraph, the telephone, the electric light, the automobile, the airplane, the radio and a higher standard of living for all the people than obtains anywhere else in the world. No great invention ever came from a government-owned industry.

George Bruce Cortelyou (1862 - 1940)

A Quote by G. O. Ashley on privacy


Like other occult techniques of divination, the statistical method has a private jargon deliberately contrived to obscure its methods from non-practitioners.

A Quote by Fred Allen on achievement, dependence, goals, love, privacy, sharing, support, and world

It is probably not love that makes the world go around, but rather those mutually supportive alliances through which partners recognize their dependence on each other for the achievement of shared and private goals.

A Quote by Faith Baldwin on darkness, men, mountains, privacy, seasons, and world

Men's private self-worlds are rather like our geographical world's seasons, storm, and sun, deserts, oases, mountains and abysses, the endless-seeming plateaus, darkness and light, and always the sowing and the reaping.

A Quote by General Dwight David Eisenhower on action, concern, feeling, guilt, practice, and privacy

I make it a practice to avoid hating anyone. If someone's been guilty of despicable actions, especially toward me, I try to forget him. I used to follow a practice-somewhat contrived, I admit-to write the man's name on a piece of scrap paper, drop it into the lowest drawer of my desk, and say to myself: "That finishes the incident, and so far as I'm concerned, that fellow. The drawer became over the years a sort of private wastebasket for crumpled-up spite and discarded personalities. Besides, it seemed to be effective, and helped me avoid harboring useless black feelings.

Dwight Eisenhower (1890 - 1969)
