Top Reservations Quotes

Reservations Quotes By Samir Kassir

Still, there is space for this secular movement that has become frustrated with the liberal experience.

Reservations Quotes By Philip Zaleski

Charles Williams loved his son with reservations, complaining that "a child is a guest of a somewhat inconsistent temperament, rather difficult to get rid of, almost pushing; a poor relation rather than a pleasant kind. — Philip Zaleski

Reservations Quotes By Rebecca Solnit

Congressional Republicans refused to reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act because they objected to the protection it gave immigrants, transgender women, and Native American women.

It is the essence of certainty to be established only with reservations. — Maurice Merleau Ponty

Reservations Quotes By Clifford Stoll

Here are my strong reservations about the wave of computer networks. They isolate us from one another and cheapen the meaning of actual experience. They work against literacy and creativity. They undercut our schools and libraries. — Clifford Stoll

Reservations Quotes By Kurt Vonnegut Jr.

Its basic axiom is to be followed by individuals as well as great nations, by Losers and Winners alike. We have demonstrated the workability of the axiom in Vietnam, in Bangladesh, in Biafra, in Palestinian refugee camps, in our own ghettos, in our migrant labor camps, on our Indian reservations, in our institutions for the defective and the deformed and the aged. This is it: Ignore agony. — Kurt Vonnegut Jr.

Reservations Quotes By Tom McDonough

All that remains of the garden city in our own day are traffic-free enclaves, islands in a sea of traffic where the pedestrian leads a legally protected by languishing existence, comparable to that of the North American Indians on their reservations ... In reality the modern urbanist regards the city as a gigantic centre of production, geared to the efficient transport of workers and goods, to the accommodation of people and the storage of wares, to industrial and commercial activity. The rest, that is to say creativity, life, is optional and comes under the heading of recreation and leisure activities. — Tom McDonough

Reservations Quotes By Kohta Hirano

I need just be a bayonet, a bayonet named Diving Punishment. I wish I'd been born a storm. Or a menace. Or a single grenade. No heart, no tears, just as a terrible gale'd have been good. If [by doing this] I become that, then so be it. — Kohta Hirano

Reservations Quotes By James Welch

The economic piece is still missing, since it's so hard to attract industry to reservations, but spiritually and educationally, they're doing just fine. Each tribe has a community college now, and they teach the language, they teach the traditions. — James Welch

Reservations Quotes By Steven Hatfill

As a scientist in the field of biological warfare defense, I have never had any reservations whatsoever about helping the anthrax investigation in any way that I could. — Steven Hatfill

Reservations Quotes By Rick Yancey

It wasn't about saving us. And it wasn't about enslaving us or herding us into reservations. It was about killing us. All of us. — Rick Yancey

Reservations Quotes By David Treuer

To understand American Indians is to understand America. This is the story of the paradoxically least and most American place in the twenty-first century. Welcome to the Rez. — David Treuer

Reservations Quotes By Gunter Vogler

Why would that woman shoot me? We had dinner reservations later! — Gunter Vogler

Reservations Quotes By Timothy Miller

Attention is the intention to live without reservation in the here-and-now. — Timothy Miller

Reservations Quotes By Daryl Gregory

Rogue factories on the other side of the border, most of them also on Native American reservations, pumped out millions of cheap, untaxed, generic cigarettes a year. You couldn't blame the Indians. We took their land; they were giving us cancer. — Daryl Gregory

Reservations Quotes By Buffalo Bill

Indians were frequently off their reservations. — Buffalo Bill

Reservations Quotes By Rick Renzi

In recent years, the choice of drugs on these reservations and throughout my district has been methamphetamines. It has destroyed the rule of law among the reservation people. It is killing our tribal youth in this country. — Rick Renzi

Reservations Quotes By Ferran Adria

Throughout the history of el Bulli, there have been many changes in its organisation or philosophy. This is another one of those moments. There will be risk, and freedom, and creativity. But there won't be opening hours, or reservations, or routines. — Ferran Adria

Reservations Quotes By Andy Weir

Any concerns or reservations?" Venkat asked. "Yeah. I'm concerned about what I ate last night. I think it had an eyeball in it." "I'm sure there wasn't an eyeball." "The engineers here made it for me special," Mitch said. "There may have been an eyeball," Venkat said. "They hate you. — Andy Weir

Reservations Quotes By Paul Rudnick

Wait, we can not break bread with you. You have taken the land which is rightfully ours. Years from now my people will be forced to live in mobile homes on reservations. Your people will wear cardigans, and drink highballs. We will sell our bracelets by the road sides, and you will play golf, and eat hot h'ors d'ourves. My people will have pain and degradation. Your people will have stick shifts. The gods of my tribe have spoken. They said do not trust the pilgrims, especially Sarah Miller. And for all of these reasons I have decided to scalp you and burn your village to the ground. — Paul Rudnick

Reservations Quotes By Jose Rizal

Since it is necessary to grant six million Filipinos their rights, so that they may be in fact Spaniards, let the government grant these rights freely and spontaneously, without damaging reservations, without irritating mistrust. — Jose Rizal

Reservations Quotes By Leonard Peltier

If you look at Iraq and Afghanistan's situations, they are quickly becoming much like our reservations. They will have puppet governments funded and controlled by a U.S. Government that siphoned off their resources. You don't have to be an English major to read the writing on the wall; I am in here as a warning to others, just like those men who are in Guantanamo are a warning to others - if you stand up to us you face these same consequences. — Leonard Peltier

Reservations Quotes By Kohta Hirano

I wish I had been born a storm. No heart, no tears, just a terrible gale'd been good. — Kohta Hirano

Reservations Quotes By Sherman Alexie

Reservations were meant to be prisons, you know? Indians were supposed to move onto reservations and die. We were supposed to disappear. — Sherman Alexie

Reservations Quotes By Francois Fenelon

To will everything that God wills, and to will it always, in all circumstances and without reservations: that is the kingdom of God which is entirely within. — Francois Fenelon

Reservations Quotes By Blake Crouch

She loved at light-speed. No hesitation. No regrets. No conditions. No reservations. While he hoarded his chips and held a part of himself back, she went all in. Every time. — Blake Crouch

Reservations Quotes By Carolyn Keene

His insistence, George had made reservations for a flight the next day. — Carolyn Keene

Reservations Quotes By Alexander Hamilton

The complete independence of the courts of justice is peculiarly essential in a limited Constitution. By a limited Constitution, I understand one which contains certain specified exceptions to the legislative authority ... Limitations of this kind can be preserved in practice no other way than through the medium of courts of justice, whose duty it must be to declare all acts contrary to the manifest tenor of the Constitution void. Without this, all the reservations of particular rights or privileges would amount to nothing. — Alexander Hamilton

Reservations Quotes By John Bartlett

Reservation should be under 'Bartlett.' Right, that's two T's. Yes. 'Bart-let-et.' — John Bartlett

Reservations Quotes By Mariella Frostrup

For most of us, when our 'dreams' - I use the word with reservations - came true, and marriage and motherhood became a reality, the romcoms, like horoscopes, swiftly lost their allure. — Mariella Frostrup

Reservations Quotes By Mindy Kaling

Men know what they want. Men make concrete plans. Men own alarm clocks. Men sleep on a mattress that isn't on the floor. Men tip generously. Men buy new shampoo instead of adding water to a nearly empty bottle of shampoo. Men go to the dentist. Men make reservations. Men go in for a kiss without giving you some long preamble about how they're thinking of kissing you. Men wear clothes that have never been worn by anyone else before. (Okay, maybe men aren't exactly like this. This is what I've cobbled together from the handful of men I know or know of, ranging from Heathcliff Huxtable to Theodore Roosevelt to my dad.) Men know what they want and they don't let you in on their inner monologue, and that is scary. — Mindy Kaling

Reservations Quotes By Richard Osborne

Wagner thought Rossini unserious; Rossini thought Wagner 'lacked sun'. Wagner also became the butt of a phrase Rossini had used down the years to describe musicians about whom he had certain reservations - "He has some beautiful moments but some bad quarters of an hour! — Richard Osborne

Reservations Quotes By Immanuel Kant

If, like Hume, I had all manner of adornment in my power, I would still have reservations about using them. It is true that some readers will be scared off by dryness. But isn't it necessary to scare off some if in their case the matter would end up in bad hands? — Immanuel Kant

Reservations Quotes By Mindy Kaling

I felt bad for Lulu because I've been Lulu. It's really hard when you realize the guy you've been dating is basically a high schooler at heart. It make you feel like Mary Kay Letourneau. It's the worst.
Until I was thirty, I only dated boys, as far as I can tell. I'll tell you why. Men scared the shit out of me.
Men know what they want. Men make concrete plans. Men own alarm clocks. Men sleep on a mattress that isn't on the floor. Men tip generously. Men buy new shampoo instead of adding water to a nearly empty bottle of shampoo. Men go to the dentist. Men make reservations. Men go in for a kiss without giving you some long preamble about how they're thinking of kissing you. — Mindy Kaling

Reservations Quotes By Anthony Bourdain

And now to sleep, to dream...perchance to fart. — Anthony Bourdain

Reservations Quotes By Jane Jacobs

The second mode to deal with unsafe cities is to take refuge in vehicles. This is the technique practiced in the big wild-animal reservations of Africa, where tourists are warned to leave their cars under no circumstances until they reach a lodge. It is also the technique practiced in Los Angeles. — Jane Jacobs

Reservations Quotes By Glenn Beck

Roughly two-thirds of educators wholeheartedly reject the new Common Core standards, or have reservations about them, and it would be just as accurate as the way the NEA wrote it. — Glenn Beck

Reservations Quotes By George Carlin

Some national parks have long waiting lists for camping reservations. When you have to wait a year to sleep next to a tree, something is wrong. — George Carlin

Reservations Quotes By Jen Hatmaker

This is what God taught me through Judas at Jesus' table, eating the broken bread that was His body: We don't get to opt out of living on mission because we might not be appreciated. We're not allowed to neglect the oppressed because we have reservations about their discernment. We cannot deny love because it might be despised or misunderstood. We can't withhold social relief because we're not convinced it will be perfectly managed. We can't project our advantaged perspective onto struggling people and expect results available only to the privileged. Must we be wise? Absolutely. But doing nothing is a blatant sin of omission. — Jen Hatmaker

Reservations Quotes By Arshile Gorky

The secret is to throw yourself into the water of life again and again, not to hang back, no reservations, risk everything, but above all strike out boldly with all you have. — Arshile Gorky

Reservations Quotes By Conan O'Brien

Some McDonald's restaurants are taking reservations on Valentine's Day. They are getting a lot of tables for one. — Conan O'Brien

Reservations Quotes By Kenneth Clarke

My sense is that the majority of Conservatives share my reservations about how we got into Iraq. — Kenneth Clarke

Reservations Quotes By Mackenzie Astin

I technically have two last names, which is a lot of fun when you're making airline reservations. — Mackenzie Astin

Reservations Quotes By Olivia Laing

When he changed his mind, very suddenly, expressing increasingly grave reservations into a series of hotel phones, I found myself adrift, stunned by the swift arrival and even swifter departure of everything I thought I lacked. — Olivia Laing

Reservations Quotes By Nelson A. Miles

Looking at the purpose of our government toward the Indians, we find that after subjugating them it has been our policy to collect the different tribes on reservations and support them at the expense of our people. — Nelson A. Miles

Reservations Quotes By John Grisham

You mentioned law school, he said, and this grabbed her attention. They talked about it at length, with Jake careful not to make his description as dreadful as the three-year ordeal itself. Occasionally, like all lawyers, Jake was asked by students if he would recommend the law as a profession. He had never found an honest way to say no, though he had many reservations. — John Grisham

Reservations Quotes By Lynn Viehl

He so enjoyed disconcerting a woman of conservative sensibilities, and he suspected that the detective had inhibitions atop reservations wrapped in reticense.
Lucan thinking about Samantha
Dark Need by Lynn Viehl — Lynn Viehl

Reservations Quotes By Francis Crick

It is one of the striking generalizations of biochemistry - which surprisingly is hardly ever mentioned in the biochemical text-books - that the twenty amino acids and the four bases, are, with minor reservations, the same throughout Nature. As far as I am aware the presently accepted set of twenty amino acids was first drawn up by Watson and myself in the summer of 1953 in response to a letter of Gamow's. — Francis Crick

Reservations Quotes By Elizabeth Peters

Though Emerson is a firm believer in the equality of the female sex, he has some secret reservations, and one of them involves the car. (There is something about these machines that makes men want to pound their chests and roar like gorillas. I speak figuratively, of course.) — Elizabeth Peters

Reservations Quotes By Bill Hader

Voices are a good way to get in and out of things. James Carville constantly calls my wife to say I'll be home late. Mandy Patinkin and Al Pacino call to get me restaurant reservations. — Bill Hader

Reservations Quotes By Dwight D. Eisenhower

There has been a vigorous acceleration of health, resource and education programs designed to advance the role of the American Indian in our society. Last Fall, for example, 91 percent of the Indian children between the ages of 6 and 18 on reservations were enrolled in school. This is a rise of 12 percent since 1953. — Dwight D. Eisenhower

Reservations Quotes By John Muir

The making of the far-famed New York Central Park was opposed by even good men, with misguided pluck, perseverance, and ingenuity, but straight right won its way, and now that park is appreciated. So we confidently believe it will be with our great national parks and forest reservations. — John Muir

Reservations Quotes By Cyril Burt

Nearly half a century has passed since Watson proclaimed his manifesto. Today, apart from a few minor reservations, the vast majority of psychologists, both in this country and in America, still follow his lead. The result, as a cynical onlooker might be tempted to say, is that psychology, having first bargained away its soul and then gone out of its mind, seems now, as it faces an untimely end, to have lost all consciousness. — Cyril Burt

Reservations Quotes By George Armstrong Custer

If I were an Indian ... I would greatly prefer to cast my lot among those of my people who adhere to the free open plains, rather than submit to the confined limits of a reservation. — George Armstrong Custer

Reservations Quotes By Smith Wigglesworth

It pays to trust God with all and to make no reservation. — Smith Wigglesworth

Reservations Quotes By Raymond Sokolov

Reservations and cloth napkins are really minor pinnacles in the high sierra of the New York lunch. The zenith, the Mount Whitney of lunches, the noon meal at which all local lines of force converge [is] the Bar Room of the Four Seasons. — Raymond Sokolov

Reservations Quotes By Douglas Rushkoff

In spite of my own reservations about Bing's ability to convert Google users, I have to admit that the search engine does offer a genuine alternative to Google-style browsing, a more coherently organized selection of links, and a more advertiser-friendly environment through which to sell space and links. — Douglas Rushkoff

Reservations Quotes By J. Vernon McGee

Today, when people say they cannot believe, it is not a mental problem; it is a matter of the will of the heart- they do not want to believe. Some say they have certain 'mental reservations,' mental hurdles which they cannot get over. My friend, your mind is not big enough to take even one little hurdle. The problem is never in the mind but in the will. There is sin in the life, and a man does not want to turn to God; he does not want to believe Him. — J. Vernon McGee

Reservations Quotes By Pema Chodron

The everyday practice is simply to develop a complete acceptance and openness to all situations and emotions, and to all people, experiencing everything totally without mental reservations and blockages, so that one never withdraws or centralizes into oneself. — Pema Chodron

Reservations Quotes By Ransom Riggs

I believe murder is 'tolerated with reservations.' " "Is anything illegal here?" Addison asked. "Library late fines are stiff. Ten lashes a day, and that's just for paperbacks. — Ransom Riggs

Reservations Quotes By Erica O'Rourke

In the end, though, it doesn't really matter. I think the key is to accept who you are, however you got that way. To embrace it, without reservations or hesitations. Because once you own who you are, it's not a limitation anymore. It's a source of strenght.
- Mo — Erica O'Rourke

Reservations Quotes By Suzanne La Follette

Most people, no doubt, when they espouse human rights, make their own mental reservations about the proper application of the word "human." — Suzanne La Follette

Reservations Quotes By Woody Allen

Life is tough and it's tough whether you're famous or not famous. And in the end it's probably better to be famous because the perks are better. You get better seats at the basketball game, and you get better tables and reservations places. If I call a doctor on Saturday morning I can get him. There's a lot of things, indulgences that you don't get, if you're not famous. Now I'm not saying it's fair. But I can't say that I don't enjoy it. — Woody Allen

Reservations Quotes By Jonathan Safran Foer

Abraham didn't say, "What do you want?" He didn't say, "Yes?" He answered with a statement: "Here I am." Whatever God needs or wants, Abraham is wholly present for Him, without conditions or reservations or need for explanation. — Jonathan Safran Foer

Reservations Quotes By Eric Hoffer

We find it hard to apply the knowledge of ourselves to our judgment of others. The fact that we are never of one kind, that we never love without reservations and never hate with all our being cannot prevent us from seeing others as wholly black or white. — Eric Hoffer

Reservations Quotes By Noam Chomsky

In the United States everyone is an illegal immigrant - everyone except the people in Indian Reservations. This is an immigrant society. — Noam Chomsky

Reservations Quotes By F Scott Fitzgerald

But to be included in Dick Diver's world for a while was a remarkable experience: people believed he made special reservations about them, recognizing the proud uniqueness of their destinies, buried under the compromises of how many years. He won everyone quickly with an exquisite consideration and a politeness that moved so fast and intuitively that it could be examined only in its effect. Then, without caution, lest the first bloom of the relation wither, he opened the gate to his amusing world. So long as they subscribed to it completely, their happiness was his preoccupation, but at the first flicker of doubt as to its all- inclusiveness he evaporated before their eyes, leaving little communicable memory of what he had said or done. — F Scott Fitzgerald

Reservations Quotes By Felix Alba-Juez

It is curious that the human mind could blindly accept an infinite speed but had reservations to accept a finite one, simply because it was too large! — Felix Alba-Juez

Reservations Quotes By George Carlin

Hitler never bothered with restaurant reservations; he just dropped by. And somehow they always found him a table. — George Carlin

Reservations Quotes By Suzanne Collins

Despite serious reservations, I had to forgive Finnick for his role in the conspiracy that landed me here. He, at least has some idea of what I'm going through. And it takes too much energy to stay angry with someone who cries so much. — Suzanne Collins

Reservations Quotes By Mark Ellingsen

Subordination of the state to Christian values is precisely what the early Puritans, even those in the tradition of the Mayflower Pilgrims, aimed to do. The First Amendment notwithstanding, large numbers of the American public (especially churchgoing Protestant Christians) have embodied this Puritan way of thinking, viewing America as a "Christan nation." Relatively recent poll data bear out the enduring character of these Puritan convictions. According to a Pew Forum poll held just prior to the 2004 election, over one-half of the public would have reservations voting for a candidate with no religious affiliation (31 percent refusing to vote for a Muslim and 15 percent for a Catholic). — Mark Ellingsen

Reservations Quotes By James Welch

The townspeople outside the reservations had a very superior attitude toward Indians, which was kind of funny, because they weren't very wealthy; they were on the fringes of society themselves. — James Welch

Reservations Quotes By Tsai Ing-wen

There are some voters who are rather traditional and have some reservations about electing a woman leader. But the younger generation are excited to have a woman leader for the country. They think it is somewhat trendy. — Tsai Ing-wen

Reservations Quotes By Kiran Nagarkar

Leelawati was sitting on a swing in the palace. Without meaning to, i ran towards her. She swung herself from the swing straight into my arms and hugged me. She wouldn't let go of me and i wasn't about to let go of her. To be trusted so, without any reservations, i too must have been up to some good in my past lives. — Kiran Nagarkar

Reservations Quotes By Abul Kalam Azad

We brought the religious leaders and the secular development workers together in one room. We asked the religious leaders what are your reservations about development workers? And we asked the development workers, what are your reservations about religious leaders? It turns out that most of the problems are not really problems at all, but rather misunderstandings, misconceptions, and mis-communications. — Abul Kalam Azad

Reservations Quotes By William Herbert Sheldon

Happiness is essentially a state of going somewhere, wholeheartedly, one directionally, without regret or reservation. — William Herbert Sheldon

Reservations Quotes By James Allen

Nature gives all, without reservation, and loses nothing; man or woman, grasping all, loses everything. — James Allen

Reservations Quotes By Vicki L. Drewa

Adrianna tried to deal with a lot of grown up issues on her own and fell into some bad traps that could have had irreversible results. I would like to say to anyone who finds themselves in a predicament similar to young Adrianna's, it is important to seek help from someone you can trust. Even though she had reservations discussing her problems with others, there is nothing shameful in seeking guidance for problems you or someone you know may be having. Like Adrianna, you may have many people around you who are willing to help, such as a family member, coach, teacher, guidance counselor, or others. You will find that facing your problems with the help of others will make life much more enjoyable. — Vicki L. Drewa

Reservations Quotes By Jennifer Weiner

My chest. All I'd wanted was for someone to be happy for me - happy with me, straight-up happy, not happy with questions, or happy with reservations, or happy but confused, or not happy at all ... and there was no one in my life, including my husband, who fit the bill. — Jennifer Weiner

Reservations Quotes By John Knowles

Phineas created an atmosphere in which I continued now to live, a way of sizing up the world with erratic and entirely personal reservations, letting its rocklike facts sift through and be accepted only a little at a time, only as much as he could assimilate without a sense of chaos and loss. — John Knowles

Reservations Quotes By I. Alan Appt

In true love, one has no reservations.True love is unquestionable,indisputable and totally recognizable. — I. Alan Appt

Reservations Quotes By Gloria D. Gonsalves

The past has taught me that any heart has immeasurable capacity to love, no matter how many times it has been broken. Now I choose to love as hard as I can and without reservations. — Gloria D. Gonsalves

Reservations Quotes By James Monroe

By these purchases the Indian title, with moderate reservations, has been extinguished to the whole of the land within the limits of the State of Ohio, and to a part of that in the Michigan Territory and of the State of Indiana. — James Monroe

Reservations Quotes By William Tecumseh Sherman

The only good Indian is a dead Indian — William Tecumseh Sherman

Reservations Quotes By Jason Biggs

We all had our reservations about possibly overdoing it but, you know, the script was great. Basically it stuck to the formula that worked for the first two movies, and for that reason I think this works as well. — Jason Biggs

Reservations Quotes By Sylvia Plath

God, I scream for time to let go, to write, to think. But no. I have to exercise my memory in little feats just so I can stay in this damn wonderful place which I love and hate with all my heart. And so the snow slows and swirls, and melts along the edges. The first snow isn't good for much. It makes a few people write poetry, a few wonder if the Christmas shopping is done, a few make reservations at the skiing lodge. It's a sentimental prelude to the real thing. It's picturesque & quaint. — Sylvia Plath

Reservations Quotes By Mark Rothko

I will say without reservations that from my point of view there can be no abstractions. Any shape or area that has not the pulsating concreteness of real flesh and bones, its vulnerability to pleasure or pain is nothing at all. Any picture that does not provide the environment in which the breath of life can be drawn does not interest me. — Mark Rothko

Reservations Quotes By Maureen Lipman

What does a Californian make for dinner? Reservations. — Maureen Lipman

Reservations Quotes By Drake

You got your resolutions ... We just got reservations. — Drake

Reservations Quotes By Geri Halliwell

I like doing accents. One of my friends works in hotel reservations and I'll ring her up and complain about the suite. Sometimes I get her. — Geri Halliwell

Reservations Quotes By Anthony Bourdain

What's the opposite of suck? Un-suck? — Anthony Bourdain

Reservations Quotes By Daniel De Leon

The Catholic Church ... upheld feudalism, then monarchism, warning of growing evils and possible revolutions. In the same manner, and under the same reservations, she now upholds capitalism; but, above all things and forever, she upholds the Catholic Church. — Daniel De Leon

Reservations Quotes By Adam Rex

Captain Smek himself appeared on television for an official speech to humankind.
[ ... ] 'Noble Savages of Earth,' he said. 'Long time we have tried to live together in peace.' (It had been five months.) 'Long time have the Boov suffered under the hostileness and intolerableness of you people. With sad hearts I now concede that Boov and humans will never to exist as one.'
I remember being really excited at this point. Could I possibly be hearing right? Were the Boov about to leave? I was so stupid.
'And so now I generously grant you Human Preserves - gifts of land that will be for humans forever, never to be taken away again, now.'
[ ... ] So that's when we Americans were given Florida. One state for three hundred million people. There were going to be some serious lines for the bathrooms. — Adam Rex

Reservations Quotes By Richard Rodriguez

The Indians had to be either killed, or herded into reservations, which were essentially concentration camps, and forgotten. Their history had to be absolutely obliterated so that we could believe that we were living on virgin soil. — Richard Rodriguez

Reservations Quotes By Jerry Seinfeld

See, you know how to take the reservation, you just don't know how to hold the reservation and that's really the most important part of the reservation, the holding. Anybody can just take them. — Jerry Seinfeld

Reservations Quotes By Robert Underwood Johnson

He is likely to remain the one historian of the Sierra; he imported into his view the imagination of the poet and the reverence of the worshipper ... William Kent, during Muir's life, paid him a rare tribute in giving to the nation a park of redwoods with the understanding that it should be named Muir Woods. But the nation owes him more. His work was not sectional but for the whole people, for he was the real father of the forest reservations of America. — Robert Underwood Johnson

Reservations Quotes By Stephanie Danler

We called them the Nine-to-Fivers. They lived in accordance with nature, waking and sleeping with the cycle of the sun. Mealtimes, business hours, the world conformed to their schedule. The best markets, the A-list concerts, the street fairs, the banner festivities were on Saturdays and Sundays. They sold out movies, art openings, ceramics classes. They had evenings to waste. The watched the Super Bowl, they watched the Oscars, they made reservations for dinner because they ate dinner at a normal time. They brunched, ruthlessly, and read the Sunday Times on Sundays. They moved in crowds that reinforced their citizenship: crowded museums, crowded subways, crowded bars, the city teeming with extras for the movie they starred in.

They were dining, shopping, consuming, unwinding, expanding while we were working, diminishing, being absorbed into their scenery. That is why we -- the Industry People -- got so greedy when the Nine-to-Fivers went to bed. — Stephanie Danler

Reservations Quotes By Danny Meyer

Diners are upset that restaurants aren't honoring reservations, and a lot of restaurants help bring this on by overbooking. — Danny Meyer

Reservations Quotes By Katee Sackhoff

I grew up in Oregon so I grew up around reservations, so I've always kind of had this knowledge. Not a tremendous amount of knowledge, but an outsider's knowledge of what reservation life was like. — Katee Sackhoff

Reservations Quotes By Ethel Waters

Whenever I write for hotel reservations, I always enclose a set of rules I have made for the hotels. — Ethel Waters
