Famous quotes containing the words parties, games and/or published:

    We give lovely parties that last through the night,
    I dress as a woman and scream with delight,
    We wake up at lunch time and find we’re still tight.
    What could be duller than that?
    Noël Coward (1899–1973)

    The rules of drinking games are taken more serious than the rules of war.
    Chinese proverb.

    Ignorance, forgetfulness, or contempt of the rights of man are the only causes of public misfortunes and of the corruption of governments.
    —French National Assembly. Declaration of the Rights of Man (drafted and discussed Aug. 1789, published Sept. 1791)
