Wing Waving

Famous quotes containing the words wing and/or waving:

    If a liberal policy towards the late Rebels is adopted, the ultra Republicans are opposed to it; if the colored people are honored, the extremists of the other wing cry out against it. I suspect I am right in both cases.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)

    There can be no reconciliation where there is no open warfare. There must be a battle, a brave boisterous battle, with pennants waving and cannon roaring, before there can be peaceful treaties and enthusiastic shaking of hands.
    Mary Elizabeth Braddon (1837–1915)
