Famous quotes containing the words committee and/or standing:

    Any committee that is the slightest use is composed of people who are too busy to want to sit on it for a second longer than they have to.
    Katharine Whitehorn (b. 1926)

    Most observers of the French Revolution, especially the clever and noble ones, have explained it as a life-threatening and contagious illness. They have remained standing with the symptoms and have interpreted these in manifold and contrary ways. Some have regarded it as a merely local ill. The most ingenious opponents have pressed for castration. They well noticed that this alleged illness is nothing other than the crisis of beginning puberty.
    Novalis [Friedrich Von Hardenberg] (1772–1801)
