Famous quotes containing the words republic and/or french:

    I date the end of the old republic and the birth of the empire to the invention, in the late thirties, of air conditioning. Before air conditioning, Washington was deserted from mid-June to September.... But after air conditioning and the Second World War arrived, more or less at the same time, Congress sits and sits while the presidents—or at least their staffs—never stop making mischief.
    Gore Vidal (b. 1925)

    ‘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)
