Famous quotes containing the words party and/or governing:

    Party honesty is party duty, and party courage is party expediency.
    Grover Cleveland (1837–1908)

    We are apt to say that a foreign policy is successful only when the country, or at any rate the governing class, is united behind it. In reality, every line of policy is repudiated by a section, often by an influential section, of the country concerned. A foreign minister who waited until everyone agreed with him would have no foreign policy at all.
    —A.J.P. (Alan John Percivale)
