Famous quotes containing the words republic and/or french:

    Royalty is a government in which the attention of the nation is concentrated on one person doing interesting actions. A Republic is a government in which that attention is divided between many, who are all doing uninteresting actions. Accordingly, so long as the human heart is strong and the human reason weak, Royalty will be strong because it appeals to diffused feeling, and Republics weak because they appeal to the understanding.
    Walter Bagehot (1826–1877)

    ‘Are ye right there, Michael? are ye right?
    Do you think that we’ll be there before the night?
    Ye’ve been so long in startin’,
    That ye couldn’t say for sartin’—
    Still ye might now, Michael, so ye might!’
    —William Percy French (1854–1920)
