Famous quotes containing the word democratic:

    Lucas: You’re the Democratic nominee for Senator.
    John McKay: You make that sound like a death sentence.
    Jeremy Larner, U.S. screenwriter. Lucas (Peter Boyle)

    ... the black woman can never forget—however lukewarm the party may to-day appear—that it was a Republican president who struck the manacles from her own wrists and gave the possibilities of manhood to her helpless little ones; and to her mind the Democratic Negro is a traitor and a time-server.
    Anna Julia Cooper (1859–1964)

    We have been educated to such a fine—or dull—point that we are incapable of enjoying something new, something different, until we are first told what it’s all about. We don’t trust our five senses; we rely on our critics and educators, all of whom are failures in the realm of creation. In short, the blind lead the blind. It’s the democratic way.
    Henry Miller (1891–1980)
