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.
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
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
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
It is the great inspector, with a myriad eyes, who never sleeps, and whose daily reports are submitted, not to a functionary or department, but to the whole people.William Thomas Stead
You are always too late with a development if you are so slow that people demand it before you yourself recognize it. The research department should have foreseen what was necessary and had it ready to a point where people never knew they wanted it until it was made available to them.charles kettering
It was better, he thought, to fail in attempting exquisite things than to succeed in the department of the utterly contemptible.arthur machen
You couldn't advance in a finance department in this country unless you taught that the world was flat.warren buffett
Responsible for wrapping the iron fist of authority in its velvet glove is Jane Axtell, head of the accountancy firm’s Human Resources department.Alain de Botton
The great, rewarding thing about directing is that you're overseeing the whole thing. When you're an actor, you're just one department.matt dillon
Mandingo is racist trash, obscene in its manipulation of human beings and feelings, and excruciating to sit through in an audience made up largely of children, as I did last Saturday afternoon. The film has an "R" rating, which didn't keep many kids out, since most came with their parents... if [Chicago] believes Mandingo should be shown to children, then there are no possible standards left and the only thing to do is transfer the censors to the parks department, where they can supervise paper?plate? throwing contests.roger ebert
The reform of a college English department cuts no ice down at the corner garage.camille paglia
Tcl long ago fell into the Forth trap, and is now trying desperately to extricate itself (with some help from Sun's marketing department).larry wall
It is important, likewise, that the habits of thinking in a free Country should inspire caution in those entrusted with its administration, to confine themselves within their respective Constitutional Spheres; avoiding in the exercise of the Powers of one department to encroach upon another.
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
I start with the measures which the Government announced last Thursday, and which are the immediate occasion of today's debate, and to which the right hon. Gentleman finally came round - a trifle nervously, I thought - after ploughing through that tedious and tendentious farrago of moth-eaten cuttings presented to him by the Conservative Research department. I must say that part of his speech was rather like being savaged by a dead sheep.denis healey
"I'll sue you and the Sheriff's department," he said, sounding more sulky than anything else. "Questioning me like a common criminal! And with an FBI agent standing over me in a threatening manner!"Since Bishop was across the room leaning rather negligently against the filing cabinet, that was such an obvious exaggeration that Miranda could only admire it for a moment in silence.
You should resign. It's the least you can do: Resign, along with those other spies and delinquents working in the State department.hugo chávez
I assume that somewhere after he attacked Arizona; engaged in what I think was a racist dialogue to try to frighten Latinos away from the Republican Party; stood next to the president of Mexico and said, "Borders don't matter because we have strong bonds"; had the President of Mexico get a standing ovation from Democrats for attacking an American state, and has his own State department apologize to the Chinese for the Arizona law.newt gingrich
(Asked by John King about the political climate that existed in Washington at the time, and criticism of the department of Justice under his management) Listen I don't expect an apology from men like Chuck Schumer, and I would put him and other individuals who were attacking me at the top of the list contributing to the low, low public perception of Congress, the integrity of Congress quite frankly.alberto gonzales
I have made more friends for American culture than the State department. Certainly I have made fewer enemies , but that isn't very difficult.Arthur Miller
