Parties

Famous quotes containing the word parties:

    And therefore, as when there is a controversy in an account, the parties must by their own accord, set up for right Reason, the Reason of some Arbitrator, or Judge, to whose sentence, they will both stand, or their controversy must either come to blows, or be undecided, for want of a right Reason constituted by Nature; so is it also in all debates of what kind soever.
    Thomas Hobbes (1579–1688)

    Both parties are injured by what is going on at Washington. Both are, therefore, more and more disposed to look for candidates outside of that atmosphere.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)

    Remorse—is Memory—awake—
    Her Parties all astir—
    Emily Dickinson (1830–1886)
