PARTY
[ Also see Election Day Faction Government Independence Minority Organization Politics Prejudice Sects ]

How is it possible for those who are men of honor in their persons, thus to become notorious liars in their party?
      - Joseph Addison

This party spirit has so ill an effect on our morals, it has likewise a very great one upon our judgments.
      - Joseph Addison

The worst effect of party is its tendency to generate narrow, false, and illiberal prejudices, by teaching the adherents of one party to regard those that belong to an opposing party as unworthy of confidence.
      - Dorothea Brande

The parties are the gamesters; but government keeps the table, and is sure to be the winner in the end.
      - Edmund Burke

Nothing can be proposed so wild or so absurd as not to find a party, and often a very large party to espouse it.
      - Richard Cecil

Political parties serve to keep each other in check, one keenly watching the other.
      - Henry Clay

He that aspires to be the head of a party will find it more difficult to please his friends than to perplex his foes. He must often act from false reasons which are weak, because he dares not avow the true reasons which are strong.
      - Charles Caleb Colton

There are always two parties; the establishment and the movement.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Party standards are shadows in which patriotism is buried.
      - Bernadin de St. Pierre

There is an opinion that parties in free countries are useful checks upon the administration of the government, and serve to keep alive the spirit of liberty. This, within certain limits, is probably true, and, in governments of a monarchical cast, patriotism may look with indulgence, if not with favor, upon the spirit of party. But in those of the popular character, in governments purely elective, it is a spirit not to be encouraged.
      - George Washington

There has ever been, and will always be, two dominant parties in politics, and this is indirectly an advantage to the general interests of the country.
      - Daniel Webster

Party spirit enlists a man's virtues in the cause of his vices.
      - Archbishop Richard Whately

The tendency of party spirit has ever been to disguise and propagate and support error.
      - Archbishop Richard Whately
