Famous quotes containing the words wing and/or rear:

    If a liberal policy towards the late Rebels is adopted, the ultra Republicans are opposed to it; if the colored people are honored, the extremists of the other wing cry out against it. I suspect I am right in both cases.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)

    Karl Marx (1818–1883)
