Famous quotes containing the words africa, south, parties and/or political:
“Are you there, Africa with the bulging chest and oblong thigh? Sulking Africa, wrought of iron, in the fire, Africa of the millions of royal slaves, deported Africa, drifting continent, are you there? Slowly you vanish, you withdraw into the past, into the tales of castaways, colonial museums, the works of scholars.”
—Jean Genet (19101986)
“The developments in the North were those loosely embraced in the term modernization and included urbanization, industrialization, and mechanization. While those changes went forward apace, the antebellum South changed comparatively little, clinging to its rural, agricultural, labor-intensive economy and its traditional folk culture.”
—C. Vann Woodward (b. 1908)
“Men are to be guided only by their self-interests. Good government is a good balancing of these; and, except a keen eye and appetite for self-interest, requires no virtue in any quarter. To both parties it is emphatically a machine: to the discontented, a taxing- machine; to the contented, a machine for securing property. Its duties and its faults are not those of a father, but of an active parish-constable.”
—Thomas Carlyle (17951881)
“Its not that we want the political jobs themselves ... but they seem to be the only language the men understand. We dont really want these $200 a year jobs. But the average man doesnt understand working for a cause.”
—Jennie Carolyn Van Ness (b. c. 1890?)
