Famous quotes containing the word conservative:

    The democrat is a young conservative; the conservative is an old democrat. The aristocrat is the democrat ripe, and gone to seed,—because both parties stand on the one ground of the supreme value of property, which one endeavors to get, and the other to keep.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Growing older, I have lost the need to be political, which means, in this country, the need to be left. I am driven into grudging toleration of the Conservative Party because it is the party of non-politics, of resistance to politics.
    Kingsley Amis (1922–1995)

    What more do I need to say? Conservative books sell. I can’t help it if liberal books don’t sell.
    Newt Gingrich (b. 1943)
