Famous quotes containing the words party, socialist, left, wing and/or section:

    Whether a party can have much success without a woman present I must ask others to decide, but one thing is certain, no party is any fun unless seasoned with folly.
    Desiderius Erasmus (c. 1466–1536)

    Men conceive themselves as morally superior to those with whom they differ in opinion. A Socialist who thinks that the opinions of Mr. Gladstone on Socialism are unsound and his own sound, is within his rights; but a Socialist who thinks that his opinions are virtuous and Mr. Gladstone’s vicious, violates the first rule of morals and manners in a Democratic country; namely, that you must not treat your political opponent as a moral delinquent.
    George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)

    You can’t appreciate home till you’ve left it, money till it’s spent, your wife till she’s joined a woman’s club, nor Old Glory till you see it hanging on a broomstick on the shanty of a consul in a foreign town.
    O. Henry [William Sydney Porter] (1862–1910)

    But he her fears to cease
    Sent down the meek-eyed Peace;
    She, crowned with olive green, came softly sliding
    Down through the turning sphere,
    His ready harbinger,
    With turtle wing the amorous clouds dividing,
    And waving wide her myrtle wand,
    She strikes a universal peace through sea and land.
    John Milton (1608–1674)

    To look at the cross-section of any plan of a big city is to look at something like the section of a fibrous tumor.
    Frank Lloyd Wright (1869–1959)
