Famous quotes containing the word liberal:

    ... as a result of generations of betrayal, it’s nearly impossible for Southern Negroes to trust a Southern white. No matter what he does or what he suffers, a white liberal is never established beyond suspicion in the hearts of the minority.
    Sarah Patton Boyle, U.S. civil rights activist and author. The Desegregated Heart, part 2, ch. 10 (1962)

    We imagined that the sun shining on their bare heads had stamped a liberal and public character on their most private thoughts.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The right honourable gentleman caught the Whigs bathing, and walked away with their clothes. He has left them in the full enjoyment of their liberal positions, and he is himself a strict conservative of their garments.
    Benjamin Disraeli (1804–1881)
