Institutions Quotes

Ralph Waldo Emerson
We are students of words: we are shut up in schools, and colleges, and recitation-rooms, for ten or fifteen years, and come out at last with a bag of wind, a memory of words, and do not know a thing.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Power is not of a man. Wealth does not center in the person of the wealthy. Celebrity is not inherent in any personality. To be celebrated, to be wealthy, to have power requires access to major institutions.
Wright Mills

Warren G. Bennis
The leaders I met, whatever walk of life they were from, whatever institutions they were presiding over, always referred back to the same failure something that happened to them that was personally difficult, even traumatic, something that made them feel that desperate sense of hitting bottom--as something they thought was almost a necessity. It's as if at that moment the iron entered their soul; that moment created the resilience that leaders need.
Warren G. Bennis

Mark Twain
Monarchies, aristocracies, and religions are all based upon that large defect in your race -- the individual's distrust of his neighbor, and his desire, for safety's or comfort's sake, to stand well in his neighbor's eye. These institutions will always remain, and always flourish, and always oppress you, affront you, and degrade you, because you will always be and remain slaves of minorities. There was never a country where the majority of the people were in their secret hearts loyal to any of these institutions.
Mark Twain

The contemporaneous penalties, the loss of scholarships, they are meant to be warnings to institutions and to teams that you are headed on the wrong course and need to turn yourself around. Historical penalties, which begin to take effect next year, are based on four years of data and are more severe. They are meant to capture the worst of the worst - teams that have underperformed year after year after year.
Walter Harrison

Whether lawyer, politician or executive, the American who knows what's good for his career seeks an institutional rather than an individual identity. He becomes the man from NBC or IBM. The institutional imprint furnishes him with pension, meaning, proofs of existence. A man without a company name is a man without a country.
Lewis Lapham

It is an issue. A number of those institutions received mission exemptions, but there are a number of institutions that are still not performing as well for student-athletes as they are for the rest of the student body.

Ralph Waldo Emerson
An institution is the lengthened shadow of one man.

D.H. Lawrence
Why has mankind had such a craving to be imposed upon? Why this lust after imposing creeds, imposing deeds, imposing buildings, imposing language, imposing works of art? The thing becomes an imposition and a weariness at last. Give us things that are alive and flexible, which won't last too long and become an obstruction and a weariness. Even Michelangelo becomes at last a lump and a burden and a bore. It is so hard to see past him.
D.H. Lawrence

Henry David Thoreau
The way in which men cling to old institutions after the life has departed out of them, and out of themselves, reminds me of those monkeys which cling by their tails -- aye, whose tails contract about the limbs, even the dead limbs, of the forest, and they hang suspended beyond the hunter's reach long after they are dead. It is of no use to argue with such men. They have not an apprehensive intellect, but merely, as it were a prehensile tail.
Henry David Thoreau

Over the past two decades, Shakespeare in the Park has become one of the Tampa Bay area's most beloved institutions, having attracted more than 20,000 patrons a year. After speaking with our audience, we decided that, after 20 years, it was time to start a new tradition.
Todd Olson

It was only a generation ago when women were the exception rather than the rule at college campuses, and we're still seeing the increases. There's also the issue of what's going on with men. There are some that are choosing options rather than four-year institutions ... and there are some, particularly among minority groups, that are just not getting an education.
Travis Reindl

I find extraordinarily exciting the prospect that we could take an asset that was created by the state government to meet higher education needs for the institutions and students and convert it into an immediate investment.
Sen Nodler

He was a criminal lawyer, but he couldn't find it in him to defend the Mafiosi. So he entered the police force. He was a man who strove to make institutions accessible to <br/> the people, advancing a process of democratization of the forces of order.

I think there is a very long road to go before institutions and businesses, large and small, get a handle on this. The fact that we get breach after breach points to that.

The battle for the mind, some fundamentalists believe, is between fundamentalism and the institutions of the Left. This conception of the battle is fundamentally incorrect. The battle for the mind is between the Christian reconstruction movement, which alone among Protestant groups takes seriously the law of God, and everyone else.
Gary North

What surprised me is what we're able to accomplish with the resources we have in comparison to institutions with much larger budgets. That has just baffled me. There are schools out there with huge academic budgets and somehow, with our skeleton staff, the kids just get it done.
