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

    I think it is a wise course for laborers to unite to defend their interests.... I think the employer who declines to deal with organized labor and to recognize it as a proper element in the settlement of wage controversies is behind the times.... Of course, when organized labor permits itself to sympathize with violent methods or undue duress, it is not entitled to our sympathy.
    —William Howard Taft (1857–1930)

    The truth is, the whole administration under Roosevelt was demoralized by the system of dealing directly with subordinates. It was obviated in the State Department and the War Department under [Secretary of State Elihu] Root and me [Taft was the Secretary of War], because we simply ignored the interference and went on as we chose.... The subordinates gained nothing by his assumption of authority, but it was not so in the other departments.
    —William Howard Taft (1857–1930)

    I don’t know whither we are drifting, but I do know where every real thinking patriot will stand in the end, and that’s by the Constitution.
    —William Howard Taft (1857–1930)
