A public office is not a job, it is an opportunity to do something for the public.— Franklin Knight Lane
The most profound Franklin Knight Lane quotes to get the best of your day
My stars and my stripes are your dream and your labors.
I am not the flag: not at all. I am but its shadow.
The bravest sight in all this world is a man fighting against odds.
I am whatever you make me, nothing more.
I am your belief in yourself, your dream of what a people may become.... I am the clutch of an idea, and the reasoned purpose of resolution. I am no more than you believe me to be and I am all that you believe I can be. I am whatever you make me, nothing more.
Newspaper men, perhaps more than any other class, are rated by ability.
For you are the makers of the flag and it is well that you glory in the making.
I have hardly seen my baby for six weeks;
have been at the office from nine A.M. to eleven P.M. regularly.
No man should have a political office because he wants a job.
It is work and personal worth which make a State great both politically and industrially, and in my estimation they are to be found in largest proportions in the Democratic party.
