Quotation for the day: Robert Moses

Anyone in public works is bound to be a target for charges of arbitrary administration and power broking leveled by critics who never had responsibility for building anything.  I raise my stein to the builder who can remove ghettos without moving people as I hail the chef who can make omelets without breaking eggs.
Robert Moses in 1974, responding to Robert Caro's biography of him, The Power Broker: Robert Moses and the Fall of New York (New York: Knopf, 1974).
