Famous quotes containing the words howard taft, taft, william and/or howard:

    I do not allow myself to be moved by anything except the law. If there has been a mistake in the law, or if I think there has been perjury or injustice, I will weigh the petition most carefully, but I do not permit myself to be moved by more harrowing details, and I try to treat each case as if I was reviewing it or hearing it for the first time from the bench.
    —William Howard Taft (1857–1930)

    Taft, laughing, “What troubles [brother] Charles is, he is afraid Roosevelt will get the credit of making me President and not himself.” To Charles: “I will agree not to minimize the part you played in making me President if you will agree not to minimize the part Roosevelt played.”
    —William Howard Taft (1857–1930)

    Now owing, I’m much disposed to fear,
    To his terrible taste for tippling,
    That highly respectable gondolier
    Could never declare with a mind sincere
    Which of the two was his offspring dear
    And which the Royal stripling.
    —Sir William Schwenck Gilbert (1836–1911)

    There is not a subject in which I take a deeper interest than I do in the development of Alaska, and I propose, if Congress will follow by recommendations, to do something in that territory that will make it move on.
    —William Howard Taft (1857–1930)
