Famous quotes containing the word upright:

    Come gather round me Parnellites
    And praise our chosen man,
    Stand upright on your legs awhile,
    Stand upright while you can,
    For soon we lie where he is laid
    And he is underground....
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    I have the greatest aversion to being a candidate on a ticket with a man whose record as an upright public man is to be in question—to be defended from the beginning to the end.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)

    The sense of doing good , the satisfaction of being right, the joy of looking favorably upon oneself, dear sir, are powerful levers for keeping us upright and making us progress. On the other hand, if men are deprived of that feeling, they are changed into rabid dogs.
    Albert Camus (1913–1960)
