I started to work on this book in 1954, when, having been called to active duty in the Navy, I was relieved of the burdens of a full-time psychoanalytic practice... Within a year of its publication, the Commissioner of the New York State Department of Mental Hygiene demanded, in a letter citing specifically 'The Myth Of Mental Illness', that I be dismissed from my university position because I did not "believe" in mental illness.
An efficient organization is one in which the accounting department knows the exact cost of every useless administrative procedure which they themselves have initiated.E W Steacie
I stopped believing in Santa Claus when I was six. Mother took me to see him in a department store and he asked for my autograph.
Were I called upon to decide whether the people had best be omitted in the Legislative or Judiciary department, I would say it is better to leave them out of the Legislative. The execution of the laws is more important than the making of them.
What I do know is Theo is the kind of security genius that various state secret-service organizations would love to have on their side. If he were to waltz into the department of Defense and promise to be a good boy, I think Director of Central Intelligence George Tenet would probably jizz all over himself.theo de raadt
News, Opinion and Advertisment must all come under the head of Entertainment to a reasonable extentor they will not be read.People do not read to be bored. Unless a newspaper can make its material in every department interesting it simply is not read.
The Internet has taken shape with startlingly little planning? The most universal and indispensable network on the planet somehow burgeoned without so muchasa boardofdirectors, never minda mergers-and- acquisitions department. There is a paradoxical lesson here for strategists. In economic terms, the great corporations are acting like socialist planners, while old- fashioned free-market capitalism blossoms at their feet.James Gleick
Wonderful, I like cars, too, I like all the great things you can buy in a department store. But when you have to buy them in order to stay unaware, comatose, then the price you pay is too high.gudrun ensslin
Christianity depends f1nally on consciousness and experience. From other departments of the mind she may retire at times or seem to, but never from this. Sitting here, if allowed to, on the throne of the soul, she occasionally walks into the other rooms and sets them in order; and accustomed lo her presence, sooner or later the soul finds every department flooded with her light.
The work . . . is steadily growing and spreading – especially in that most important department, native help. . . . The future hope of China doubtless lies in them. I look on all us foreign missionaries as platform work round a rising building; the sooner it can be dispensed with the better; or rather, the sooner it can be transferred to other places, to serve the same temporary purpose, the better for the work sufficiently forward to dispense with it, and the better for the places yet to be evangelized.james hudson taylor

You couldn't advance in a finance department in this country unless you taught that the world was flat.warren buffett
The legislative department is everywhere extending the sphere of its activity and drawing all power into its impetuous vortex.james madison
[T]he great security against a gradual concentration of the several powers in the same department, consists in giving to those who administer each department the necessary constitutional means, and personal motives, to resist encroachments of the others. The provision for defence must in this, as in all other cases, be made commensurate to the danger of attack.james madison
Let's face it, the great comedians now that are handicapped in the looks department are tremendous writers.Jack Black
But petitional prayer is only one department of prayer; and if we take the word in the wider sense as meaning every kind of inward communion or conversation with the power recognized as divine, we can easily see that scientific criticism leaves it untouched. Prayer in this wide sense is the very soul and essence of religion.william james
Kappa Kappa Psi operates principally as a service-recognition society whose chief aim is to assist the Director in developing the leadership and enthusiasm that he requires of his band. Our goals are to not only provide the band with organized and concentrated service activities, but to give our membership valid and wholesome experiences in organization, leadership, and social contacts. The honorary nature of membership is based on our premise that "it is an honor to be selected to serve" this band, its department of music, its sponsoring institution and the cause of band music in the nation's colleges and universities...
Impressed with a conviction that the due administration of justice is the firmest pillar of good Government, I have considered the first arrangement of the Judicial department as essential to the happiness of our Country, and to the stability of its political system; hence the selection of the fittest characters to expound the law, and dispense justice, has been an invariable object of my anxious concern.
While I cannot take time off to name all the men in the State department whohavebeennamedasmembers of the Communist Party and members of a spy ring, I have here in my hand a list of 205 that were known to the Secretary of State as being members of the Communist Party, and who nevertheless are still working and shaping the policy of the State department.Joseph McCarthy
Going back to Davies, at the time after the war that Davies was a member of the policy staff of the State department, he had advised (this was under Dulles), that certain actions be taken, certain policies be pursued, which seemed alien to the simon-pure Communist haters.davies, john paton, jr.
You will find that [the] State [department] is the kind of organisation which, though it does big things badly, does small things badly too.john kenneth galbraith
The department has noted with considerable apprehension increasing propaganda rumors and semi-official statements in favor of an autonomous Macedonia emanating from Bulgaria, but also from Yugoslav partisan and other sources with the implication that Greek territory would be included in the projected State. This Government considers talk of "Macedonian Nation", "Macedonian Fatherland", or "Macedonian National Consciousness" to be unjustified demagoguery representing no ethnic or political reality, and sees in its present revival a possible cloak for aggressive intentions against Greece.
He sent me a letter from India, where I think he got a fellowship to spend a year or so. He sent me a letter that read, I've just met a wonderful guru who can read minds. "I want you to" Allen had a way of saying "I want you to do this, I want you to do that" "I want you to get him a position in the Philosophy department." I wrote back, "Dear Allen, the members of the Philosophy department want nothing so little as to have their minds read."jacques barzun
We have the State department working together with Google, MTV , MSNBC, Facebook , all of these all of these giant corporations. Google now has two executives that we know of that were charged to help this revolution.glenn beck
The Post Office department is like a great root spreading many feet under ground and nourishing the mighty oak. It is the tap root of civilization.
