Quotes of Frank William Taussig

Американский экономист и преподаватель

  • ⋅Here lies the body of William Jones Who all his life collected bones, Till Death, that grim and boney spectre, That universal bone collector, Boned old Jones, so neat and tidy, And here he lies, all bona fide. /Frank William Taussig
  • ⋅Johnny Rocco: Yeah, yeah, that's me. Sure, I was all of those things. And more! When Rocco talked everybody shut up and listened! What Rocco said went! Nobody was as big as Rocco! It'll be like that again only more so. I'll be back up there one of these days, and then you're really gonna see something! James Temple (with contempt): If the time ever comes when your kind can walk a city street in daylight with nothing to fear from the people.... Frank McCloud: The time has come, Mr. Temple. It's here. /Frank William Taussig
  • ⋅Before he left, Aunt William pressed a sovereign into his hand guiltily, as if it were conscience money. He, on his side, took it as though it were a doctor's fee, and both ignored the transaction. /Frank William Taussig
  • ⋅I've been aboard this destroyer for two weeks now, and we've already been through four air attacks. I'm in the war at last, Doc. I caught up with that task force that passed me by. I'm glad to be here. I had to be here, I guess. But I'm thinking now of you, Doc, and you, Frank, and Dolan, and Dawdy, and Insignia, and everyone else on that bucket. All the guys everywhere who sailed from tedium to apathy and back again with an occasional sidetrip to monotony. This is a tough crew on here and they have a wonderful battle record. But I've discovered, Doc, that the unseen enemy of this war is the boredom that eventually becomes a faith and, therefore, a terrible sort of suicide. And I know now that the ones who refuse to surrender to it are the strongest of all. Right now, I'm looking at something that's hanging over my desk, a preposterous hunk of brass attached to the most bilious piece of ribbon I've ever seen. I'd rather have it than the Congressional Medal of Honor. It tells me what I'll always be proudest of, that at a time in the world when courage counted most, I lived among sixty-two brave men. So Doc, and especially you, Frank, don't let those guys down. /Frank William Taussig
  • ⋅Go back to sleep now Frank, and I may leave a tiny poem in that brain of yours as my farewell.' /Frank William Taussig
  • ⋅Touchstone. Art rich? William. Faith, sir, so, so. Touchstone. "So, so" is good, very good, very excellent good; and yet it is not, it is but so, so. /Frank William Taussig
  • ⋅Margaret: Some people have life made for them. Frank: That's right, Mrs. Hammond, and some people make it for themselves. It's about time you took that ton of rock off your shoulders. /Frank William Taussig
  • ⋅Bryan is the least of a liar I know in public life. I have always found him direct and honest, and he never goes back on what he has said to me in private—a rare thing, if found, in public men. I found him purely frank. /Frank William Taussig
  • ⋅Do you know I believe that [William Jennings] Bryan will force his nomination on the Democrats again. I believe he will either do this by advocating Prohibition, or else he will run on a Prohibition platform independent of the Democrats. But you will see that the year before the election he will organize a mammoth lecture tour and will make Prohibition the leading note of every address. /Frank William Taussig
  • ⋅When the history of this period is written, [William Jennings] Bryan will stand out as one of the most remarkable men of his generation and one of the biggest political men of our country. /Frank William Taussig
  • ⋅The successful businessman must be able to foresee possibilities, to estimate with sagacity the outcome in the future. /Frank William Taussig

Women think that all men are equal, and this is their strength, men think all women are different - it destroys them.
