Famous quotes containing the word taft:

    I do not know much about politics, but I am trying to do the best I can with this administration until the time shall come for me to turn it over to somebody else.
    —William Howard Taft (1857–1930)

    —William Howard Taft (1857–1930)

    Lawyers are necessary in a community. Some of you ... take a different view; but as I am a member of that legal profession, or was at one time, and have only lost standing in it to become a politician, I still retain the pride of the profession. And I still insist that it is the law and the lawyer that make popular government under a written constitution and written statutes possible.
    —William Howard Taft (1857–1930)
