Famous quotes containing the words executive and/or council:

    One point in my public life: I did all I could for the reform of the civil service, for the building up of the South, for a sound currency, etc., etc., but I never forgot my party.... I knew that all good measures would suffer if my Administration was followed by the defeat of my party. Result, a great victory in 1880. Executive and legislature both completely Republican.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)

    Daughter to that good Earl, once President
    Of England’s Council and her Treasury,
    Who lived in both, unstain’d with gold or fee,
    And left them both, more in himself content.

    Till the sad breaking of that Parliament
    Broke him, as that dishonest victory
    At Chaeronea, fatal to liberty,
    Kill’d with report that old man eloquent;—
    John Milton (1608–1674)
