Famous quotes containing the word west:

    This place is the longest running farce in the West End.
    Cyril Smith (b. 1928)

    Listen, my friend, I’ve just come back from Mississippi and over there when you talk about the West Bank they think you mean Arkansas.
    Patrick Buchanan (b. 1938)

    For some reason a nation feels as shy about admitting that it ever went forth to war for the sake of more wealth as a man would about admitting that he had accepted an invitation just for the sake of the food. This is one of humanity’s most profound imbecilities, as perhaps the only justification for asking one’s fellowmen to endure the horrors of war would be the knowledge that if they did not fight they would starve.
    —Rebecca West (1892–1983)
