Famous quotes containing the word party:

    A peace is of the nature of a conquest,
    For then both parties nobly are subdued,
    And neither party loser.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Good government cannot be found on the bargain-counter. We have seen samples of bargain-counter government in the past when low tax rates were secured by increasing the bonded debt for current expenses or refusing to keep our institutions up to the standard in repairs, extensions, equipment, and accommodations. I refuse, and the Republican Party refuses, to endorse that method of sham and shoddy economy.
    Calvin Coolidge (1872–1933)

    It is well-known what a middleman is: he is a man who bamboozles one party and plunders the other.
    Benjamin Disraeli (1804–1881)
