Famous quotes containing the words government and/or conservative:

    Learn to shrink yourself to the size of the company you are in. Take their tone, whatever it may be, and excell in it if you can; but never pretend to give the tone. A free conversation will no more bear a dictator than a free government will.
    Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (1694–1773)

    A radical is a man with both feet firmly planted in the air. A conservative is a man with two perfectly good legs, who, however, has never learned to walk forward. A reactionary is a somnambulist walking backwards. A liberal is a man who uses his legs and his hands at the behest ... of his head.
    Franklin D. Roosevelt (1882–1945)
