Famous quotes containing the words taft and/or president:

    Socialism proposes no adequate substitute for the motive of enlightened selfishness that to-day is at the basis of all human labor and effort, enterprise and new activity.
    —William Howard Taft (1857–1930)

    The President has apples on the table
    And barefoot servants round him, who adjust
    The curtains to a metaphysical t
    And the banners of the nation flutter, burst
    On the flag-poles in a red-blue dazzle, whack
    At the halyards.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
