Party quotes by Monica Drake
#1. To read 'Happy Talk' is to crash a party as vivid and surreal as Felini's 8. It's the business of show business, the American dream, told by a chorus of Americans locked just outside of that dream, outside of the United States, relegated to expatriate status on the shores of Haiti. Melo paints a version of Haiti that's an interior landscape perhaps even more than an externalized place. This Haiti is a plan, a memory, a morphine-drip fueled dream out to bond its inhabitants forever. #Quote by Monica Drake
Party quotes by Tom Robbins
#2. Romantic love is ambulatory by nature, and it must be anchored in strata more stable than lust if it's to last. Marital disintegration is accelerated when only one, or neither, party is grounded and growing, or growing at different rates or in different directions. As I became increasingly interested in cultural matters, matters of the mind and spirit, my teenage bride waxed more and more materialistic. #Quote by Tom Robbins
Party quotes by Daniele Vare
#3. Diplomacy is the art of letting the other party have things your way. #Quote by Daniele Vare
Party quotes by Beryl Dov
#4. Two Evils [10w]
The lesser of two evils is the party pooper's choice. #Quote by Beryl Dov
Party quotes by Jerry Hall
#5. When I moved to Paris at 16, I held a dinner party in my first apartment and served only red wine, French fries, and mashed potatoes. Unable to cook, I relied on people taking me out. #Quote by Jerry Hall
Party quotes by Vir Das
#6. I am honestly very intimidated when I meet new people and they expect me to be the onscreen Vir. On stage, I say a lot of things I might never say in real life; I am never the life of the party. People are quite surprised to see that I am more of a quiet artiste off stage. #Quote by Vir Das
Party quotes by Noah Feldman
#7. The Mormons' passage from bugbears of the Republican Party to its stalwarts may be analogized to a similar move among middle-class white Southerners, to whom the Republican Party was anathema until the 1970s and '80s, after which it became almost the sole representative. #Quote by Noah Feldman
Party quotes by Bill Maher
#8. Tea Party has now cost the Republicans 5 senate seats. My next donation is going to them. #Quote by Bill Maher
Party quotes by Bernie Sanders
#9. Even in South Carolina, as badly as we did, and we did very badly, we won the votes of people 29 years of age or younger. The future of the Democratic Party, the future of this country is involving young people in the political process, getting them to stand up for their rights. #Quote by Bernie Sanders
Party quotes by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
#10. A VIP area is nothing without not-so-important people. #Quote by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
Party quotes by Sher Valenzuela
#11. It doesn't matter if you have a D, or an I or an R after your name if you have a job - a J-O-B. It really matters to people that they have an opportunity to contribute to their economy in a very meaningful way, and this is outside party lines. So we believe that these are the solutions that America is craving. #Quote by Sher Valenzuela
Party quotes by Rex E. Lee
#12. I have no criticism of the basic concept of irrefutable authority. Properly employed, it is the easiest, the surest, and the proper way to resolve conflicts. There is an omnipresent temptation, however, to rely on such authority regardless of its applicability; and I know of no better examples than the scriptures and the Constitution.

We find it easy to lapse into the expansive notion that the Constitution, like the gospel, embraces all truth and that it protects and guarantees all that is right, equitable, and just. From that grand premise it is only a short and comfortable leap to the proposition that the Constitution embraces my particular notion of what is right, equitable, and just. The Constitution lends itself to this kind of use because of its breadth.

Issues such as foreign aid, fluoridation of water, public versus private education, progressive income tax, to which political party I should belong and which candidate I should support; questions about economic development and environmental quality control; questions about the power of labor unions and the influence of big business in government--all these are issues of great importance. But these questions cannot and ought not to be resolved by simply resorting to irrefutable authority. Neither the Constitution nor the scriptures contain answers to these questions, and under the grand plan of eternal progress it is our responsibility to develop our own skills by working out our own answers throug #Quote by Rex E. Lee
Party quotes by Joe Bageant
#13. Man! Can you believe they actually allow this stuff to be sold over there? Glad we got laws against that crap in this country." I remind him that the socialist party is probably the largest political party on the planet. "Aw bullshit!" he said. I asked, "Then what the hell do you think is the largest party?" "The Republican Party of course! We're the only country with real political parties." Now this is from a guy who has an MBA from one of the South's universities, holds local office, and has influenced public affairs. #Quote by Joe Bageant
Party quotes by Princess Margaret
#14. It was while Princess Margaret was attending a high-society party in New York that the hostess asked her politely how the Queen was keeping. "Which one?" she is reported to have replied with her typically razor-sharp wit. "My sister, my mother or my husband? #Quote by Princess Margaret
Party quotes by J. D. Hayworth
#15. You see, party labels do not ensure unanimity any more than trying to cast the challenge we confront as a people through a partisan prism. #Quote by J. D. Hayworth
Party quotes by Diplo
#16. All over the world kids and women [are] getting killed right now over beliefs, this is silly to get angry over. If it bothers you just don't attend I'm down for anything positive but this doesn't affect our parties too much. I'm not the promoter, I actually had nothing to do with the rules being implemented, but I do agree with my team. And cause of who I am, I'm the de facto speaker. I have thick skin so u guys that consider yourself PLUR can attack me all you want it doesn't bother me. I'm just here for the music. #Quote by Diplo
Party quotes by Harold S. Kushner
#17. Nursing a grudge only perpetuates the offender's power over you. He continues to live in your head, reinforcing your frustration, polluting your imagination with thoughts of getting even. Don't let him get away with that. He may or may not deserve forgiveness, but you deserve better than to waste your energy being angry at him. Letting go is the best revenge. Forgiveness is the identifying marker of the stronger party to the dispute. It is truly a favor you do yourself, not an undeserved gesture to the person who hurt you. Be kind to yourself and forgive. #Quote by Harold S. Kushner
Party quotes by Macaulay Culkin
#18. It's about finding unique, one-of-a-kind films that I would want to see myself. I think 'Party Monster' is one of those. #Quote by Macaulay Culkin
Party quotes by Milan Kundera
#19. To put it another way, every love relationship is based upon unwritten conventions rashly agreed upon by the lovers during the first weeks of their love. On the one hand, they are living a sort of dream; on the other, without realizing it, they are drawing up the fine print of their contracts like the most hard-nosed of lawyers. O lovers! Be wary during those perilous first days! If you serve the other party breakfast in bed, you will be obliged to continue same in perpetuity or face charges of animosity and treason! #Quote by Milan Kundera
Party quotes by Bob Barr
#20. The Libertarian Party is a very mainstream party. It's a mainstream philosophy. It's of returning power from Washington to parents, to schools, to businesses in their communities. #Quote by Bob Barr
Party quotes by Leonardo DiCaprio
#21. When I was eighteen, River Phoenix was far and away my hero. Think of all those early great performances - My Own Private Idaho. Stand by Me. I always wanted to meet him. One night, I was at this Halloween party, and he passed me. He was beyond pale - he looked white. Before I got a chance to say hello, he was gone, driving off to the Viper Room, where he fell over and died. That's a lesson. #Quote by Leonardo DiCaprio
Party quotes by Charles Dickens
#22. It may, at first sight, be matter of surprise to the thoughtless few that Mr Brass, being a professional gentleman, should not have legally indicted some party or parties, active in the promotion of the nuisance, but they will be good enough to remember, that as Doctors seldom take their own prescriptions, and Divines do not always practise what they preach, so lawyers are shy of meddling with the Law on their own account: knowing it to be an edged tool of uncertain application, very expensive in the working, and rather remarkable for its properties of close shaving, than for its always shaving the right person. #Quote by Charles Dickens
Party quotes by Maggie Stiefvater
#23. Blue was in a terrible mood. Something had clearly happened while she was on shift, but Gansey's attempts to prise it from her had established only that it was neither about the toga party nor him. Now, she was the one driving the Pig, which had a threefold benefit. For starters, Gansey couldn't imagine anyone whose mood wouldn't be marginally lifted by driving a Camaro. Second, Blue said she never got a chance to practise driving in Fox Way's communal vehicle. And third, most importantly, Gansey was outrageously and eternally driven to distraction by the image of her behind the wheel of his car. Ronan and Adam weren't with them, so there was no one to catch them in what felt like an incredibly indecent act. #Quote by Maggie Stiefvater
Party quotes by Hugh Downs
#24. This country is a one-party country. Half of it is called Republican and half is called Democrat. It doesn't make any difference. All the really good ideas belong to the Libertarians. #Quote by Hugh Downs
Party quotes by Jose Manuel Barroso
#25. If we say leaders are incompetent, we are going to fuel extremist, populist, xenophobic and ultra-nationalist parties. #Quote by Jose Manuel Barroso
Party quotes by Friedrich August Von Hayek
#26. In the United States, where it has become almost impossible to use "liberal" in the sense in which I have used it, the term "libertarian" has been used instead. It may be the answer; but for my part I find it singularly unattractive. For my taste it carries too much the flavor of a manufactured term and of a substitute. What I should want is a word which describes the party of life, the party that favors free growth and spontaneous evolution. But I have racked my brain unsuccessfully to find a descriptive term which commends itself. #Quote by Friedrich August Von Hayek
Party quotes by Matthew Macfadyen
#27. I was quite a shy child. I would get terribly nervous and throw up before my birthday party. And then I would be fine. I feel the same now. I get nervous, then it's fine. #Quote by Matthew Macfadyen
Party quotes by Eugene Jarecki
#28. War is party-blind. It doesn't care who is in the Oval Office. The forces that drive us to war don't care whether it's Republican, Democrat, or other. The fact is, these parties are prey to special interests. That is something Eisenhower was afraid of. #Quote by Eugene Jarecki
Party quotes by Dennis Prager
#29. The next time your daughter asks, 'Where are all the men?' Tell them that the Democratic party and its policies got rid of them' #Quote by Dennis Prager
Party quotes by Judith N. Shklar
#30. Every adult should be able to make as many effective decisions without fear or favor about as many aspects of her or his life as is compatible with the like freedom of every other adult. That belief is the original and only defensible meaning of liberalism. #Quote by Judith N. Shklar
Party quotes by Hugh Jackman
#31. I was brought up in a way that when you're at a dinner party, you don't grab a chip unless it's been offered to everyone else. It's the manners of being brought up by English parents. #Quote by Hugh Jackman
Party quotes by Ernest Hemingway
#32. You felt, in spite of all bureaucracy and inefficiency and party strife something that was like the feeling you expected to have and did not have when you made your first communion. It was a feeling of consecration to a duty toward all of the oppressed of the world which would be as difficult and embarrasing to speak about as religious experience and yet it was as authentic as the feeling you had when you heard Bach, or stood in Chartres Cathedral or the Cathedral at León and saw the light coming through the great windows; or when you saw Mantegna and Greco and Brueghel in the Prado. It gave you a part in something that you could believe in wholly and completely and in which you felt an absolute brotherhood with the others who were engaged in it. It was something that you had never known before but that you had experienced now and you gave such importance to it and the reasons for it that you own death seemed of complete unimportance; only a thing to be avoided because it would interfere with the performance of your duty. But the best thing was that there was something you could do about this feeling and this necessity too. You could fight. #Quote by Ernest Hemingway
Party quotes by W.P. Kinsella
#33. I am more than a little jealous that the wonder I am party to has been sprinkled over Salinger's gray head. #Quote by W.P. Kinsella
Party quotes by Tony Benn
#34. It would be as unthinkable to try to construct the Labour Party without Marx as it would to be to establish university faculties of astronomy,anthropology or psychology without permitting the study of Copernicus, Darwin or Freud, and still expect such faculties to be taken seriously #Quote by Tony Benn
Party quotes by P. J. O'Rourke
#35. All previous populist movements were demanding things from governments, whereas the Tea Party is saying, 'Give us less, go away.' That's heartening to see. #Quote by P. J. O'Rourke
Party quotes by Gary Johnson
#36. I agree that the two-party system stomps on any kind of competition. A great first step is to open the presidential debates to all qualified candidates, including the Libertarians. If that happens, the Libertarian party will experience unprecedented growth. #Quote by Gary Johnson
Party quotes by Angela Merkel
#37. I want to see everyone contribute to the overall costs of the system, and with their entire earnings. I'm convinced that an objective discussion will reveal that the differences between the parties, which have been greatly exaggerated in some quarters, aren't that significant after all. #Quote by Angela Merkel
Party quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#38. The two parties which divide the State, the party of Conservatism and that of Innovation are very old, and have disputed the possession of the world ever since it was made ... Now one, now the other gets the day, and still the fight renews itself as if for the first time, under new names and hot personalities ... Innovation is the salient energy; Conservatism the pause on the last movement. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Party quotes by Sharad Pawar
#39. The Congress is a power-oriented party. #Quote by Sharad Pawar
Party quotes by Geraldine Ferraro
#40. The Republicans love to say that the Democratic Party is ruled by 'special interests.' But when pressed to name these 'special interests,' the usual reply is women, blacks, teachers, and unions. Those are 'special interests' to be proud of - because together they comprise the majority of Americans. What about the 'special interests' that dominate the Republican Party - the oil companies, the banks, the gun lobby, and the apostles of religious intolerance? #Quote by Geraldine Ferraro
Party quotes by Michel Houellebecq
#41. There had already been one attempt to form an Islamic party, the French Muslim Party, but it soon fell apart over the embarrassing anti-Semitism of its leader
so extreme that it drove him into an alliance with the far right. The Muslim Brotherhood learned its lesson and was careful to take a moderate line. #Quote by Michel Houellebecq
Party quotes by Asher Roth
#42. That party last night was awfully crazy I wish we taped it I danced my ass off and had this one girl completely naked Drink my beer and smoke my weed But my good friends is all I need Pass out at three, wake up at 10 Go out to eat, then do it again. Man I love college #Quote by Asher Roth
Party quotes by Gail Collins
#43. The Tea Party people say they're angry about socialism, but maybe they're really angry about capitalism. If there's a sense of being looked down upon, it's that sense of failure that's built into a system that assures everyone they can make it to the top, but then reserves the top for only a tiny fraction of the strivers. #Quote by Gail Collins
Party quotes by Annabel Joseph
#44. It is a lovely day, isn't it?" she said, because she couldn't think of anything else to say to his daunting shoulder. "Yes, and a lovely party, as you mentioned some moments ago. You seem to find everything lovely. What a charming quirk." Aurelia wished she could quirk him right between his eyes with the heel of her slipper. #Quote by Annabel Joseph
Party quotes by Spencer W. Kimball
#45. Every divorce is the result of selfishness on the part of one or the other or both parties to a marriage contract. Someone is thinking of self comforts, conveniences, freedoms, luxuries, or ease. Sometimes the ceaseless pin pricking of an unhappy, discontented, and selfish spouse can finally add up to serious physical violence. Sometimes people are goaded to the point where they erringly feel justified in doing the things that are so wrong. Nothing of course justifies sin. #Quote by Spencer W. Kimball
Party quotes by Courtney Summers
#46. I walk over to the window and peer out at the party. I like it better from this distance, away from everyone. Safe. #Quote by Courtney Summers
Party quotes by Charles E. Wilson
#47. Unfortunately, in collective bargaining one party or the other too often tries to gain an advantage - a bargain, like buying something in a store for less than it is worth. #Quote by Charles E. Wilson
Party quotes by Rivers Cuomo
#48. Miley Cyrus' 'Party in the USA' kills me with jealousy. The melodies are out-of-control beautiful. #Quote by Rivers Cuomo
Party quotes by Jonathan Rauch
#49. More non-fringe, non-radical homosexuals emerge into public view every day. As the stereotype of the homosexual as antisocial deviant crumbles, a (political) party or faction that tolerates gay-baiting rhetoric in the name of 'family values' makes 'family values' look more and more like common bigotry. #Quote by Jonathan Rauch
Party quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
#50. Moreover, I have boundary issues with men. Or maybe that's not fair to say. To have issues with boundaries, one must have boundaries in the first place, right? But I disappear into
the person I love. I am the permeable membrane. If I love you, you can have everything. You can have my time, my devotion, my ass, my money, my family, my dog, my dog's money, my
dog's time - everything. If I love you, I will carry for you all your pain, I will assume for you all your debts (in every definition of the word), I will protect you from your own insecurity, I will project upon you all sorts of good qualities that you have never actually cultivated in yourself and I will buy Christmas presents for your entire family. I will give you the sun and the rain, and if they are not available, I will give you a sun check and a rain check. I will give you all this and more, until I get so exhausted and depleted that the only way I can recover my energy is by becoming infatuated with someone else.
I do not relay these facts about myself with pride, but this is how it's always been.
Some time after I'd left my husband, I was at a party and a guy I barely knew said to me, "You know, you seem like a completely different person, now that you're with this new boyfriend. You used to look like your husband, but now you look like David. You even dress like
him and talk like him. You know how some people look like their dogs? I think maybe you always look like your men. #Quote by Elizabeth Gilbert
Party quotes by Cindy Margolis
#51. I gained 80 pounds for my pregnancy so this is like my coming out party. #Quote by Cindy Margolis
Party quotes by Alessandra Torre
#52. I glanced back down at my bathing suit, thought about my house, the dirty dishes in the sink, my tampon box on top of the toilet, the remnants of Ben's and my mani-pedi party still on the coffee table, mail scattered on the table ... this was bad. I took off running, the white-linen-panted gay close on my water-pruned heels. #Quote by Alessandra Torre
Party quotes by Cassandra Clare
#53. Well, either you've been out fighting the forces of evil or you've come from a much wilder party than we have," Jace said.
"Hello, there, Blackthorns. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Party quotes by William F. Buckley, Jr.
#54. The traces to the East haven been broken, the Republican party will never again be dominated by the editorial writers for the New York Herald Tribune. Free at last. #Quote by William F. Buckley, Jr.
Party quotes by Jacques Delors
#55. My presidential victory, if it had happened, would have been artificial in relation to the Socialist party. It may be that on my deathbed, I will come to regret my decision, but for the moment, I live at peace with it. #Quote by Jacques Delors
Party quotes by Margaret Thatcher
#56. In the Conservative Party we have no truck with outmoded Marxist doctrine about class warfare. For us it is not who you are, who your family is or where you come from that matters, but what you are and what you can do for your country that counts. #Quote by Margaret Thatcher
Party quotes by Sharon Guskin
#57. In the event of a change in cabin pressure, the flight attendant on the video was saying, you put your oxygen mask on first, pulling the cord, and then you helped others in your party who needed your assistance. The video showed a nice-looking dad tugging the oxygen mask over his own face, his placid daughter sitting quietly beside him, breathing bad air.
What kind of idiot came up with that rule? The didn't understand human nature at all.
She imagined the compartment filling slowly with smoke and Noah beside her, gasping. Did they really think that she could straighten the mask on her own face and breathe in clean air while her asthmatic son struggled to take a breath? The assumption was that she and her child were two different entities with seperate hearts and lungs and minds. They didn't realise that when your child was gasping for air, you felt your own breath trapped in your chest. #Quote by Sharon Guskin
Party quotes by R. Buckminster Fuller
#58. By 2000, politics will simply fade away. We will not see any political parties. #Quote by R. Buckminster Fuller
Party quotes by Terry Southern
#59. Sometimes we would be staked out in the middle of the river, several barges tied together. So we could party. #Quote by Terry Southern
Party quotes by Anne Hathaway
#60. There's something wildy decadent about the young-star lifestyle, and I just don't really see the point. I got my partying out of my system in college. #Quote by Anne Hathaway
Party quotes by Linda Kage
#61. I think I die a little every time I look at you."
Lenna's key slid from her hand and dropped to the floor at their feet.
Braxton looked down at it for a second and then lifted his eyes. "The first time," he went on, "at the Christmas party, when I looked up and saw you in the doorway ... " He paused and sucked in a breath as if he were reliving that very moment all over again. "I couldn't breathe. I haven't been able to breathe right since then. #Quote by Linda Kage
Party quotes by Glenn Beck
#62. 'Hello my name is the Republican Party and I got a problem. I'm addicted to spending and big government.' I'd like one of them just to stand up and say that. #Quote by Glenn Beck
Party quotes by Chuck Schumer
#63. But I don't think the Democratic Party is at eye level with the middle class. #Quote by Chuck Schumer
Party quotes by Harold Wilson
#64. It is quite clear to me that the Tory Party will get rid of Mrs Thatcher in about 3 years time. #Quote by Harold Wilson
Party quotes by Margaret Thatcher
#65. There are still people in my party who believe in consensus politics. I regard them as Quislings, as traitors ... I mean it. #Quote by Margaret Thatcher
Party quotes by Caitlin Moran
#66. And every book, you find, has its own social group
friends of its own it wants to introduce you to, like a party in the library that need never, ever end. #Quote by Caitlin Moran
Party quotes by James Ellroy
#67. Cliché shouters, sloganeers, fashion-conscious pseudoidealists. Locusts attacking social causes with the wrong information and bogus solutions, their one legit gripe--the Sleepy Lagoon case--almost blown through guilt by association: fellow travelers soliciting actual Party members for picketing and leaflet distribution, nearly discrediting everything the Sleepy Lagoon Defense Committee said and did. Hollywood writers and actors and hangers-on spouting cheap trauma, Pinko platitudes and guilt over raking in big money during the Depression, then penancing the bucks out to spurious leftist causes. People led to Lesnick's couch by their promiscuity and dipshit politics. #Quote by James Ellroy
Party quotes by James Herriot
#68. But Siegfried held up a restraining hand. "Just one moment," he slurred. "The windscreen is very dirty. I'll give it a rub for you." The ladies watched him silently as he weaved round to the back of the car and began to rummage in the boot. The love light had died from their eyes. I don't know why he took the trouble; possibly it was because, through the whisky mists, he felt he must re-establish himself as a competent and helpful member of the party. But the effort fell flat; the effect was entirely spoiled. He was polishing the glass with a dead hen. #Quote by James Herriot
Party quotes by Aimee Agresti
#69. He and I were like bookends, fencing in this party that raged between up. #Quote by Aimee Agresti
Party quotes by Kid Ink
#70. To me, Toronto is a good party city, I think Vancouver has the best smoke, you know. And then, Montreal has the best..uh..Chinese food? #Quote by Kid Ink
Party quotes by Drew Myron
#71. Last night your thin walls invited me to the party next door / reminded me I am a quiet person in a quiet life. #Quote by Drew Myron
Party quotes by G-Eazy
#72. If I didn't make a single song in two months, I'm slippin'. You can't just party every night. #Quote by G-Eazy
Party quotes by J.K. Rowling
#73. Wow," he added, blinking rather rapidly as Hermione came hurrying toward them. "You look great!"
"Always the tone of surprise," said Hermione, though she smiled. She was wearing a floaty, lilac-colored dress with matching high heels; her hair was sleek and shiny. "Your Great-Aunt Muriel doesn't agree, I just met her upstairs while she was giving Fleur the tiara. She said, 'Oh dear, is this the Muggle-born?' and then, 'Bad posture and skinny ankles.'"
"Don't take it personally, she's rude to everyone," said Ron.
"Talking about Muriel?" inquired George, reemerging from the marquee with Fred. "Yeah, she's just told me my ears are lopsided. Old bat. I wish old Uncle Bilius was still with us, though; he was a right laugh at weddings."
"Wasn't he the one who saw a Grim and died twenty-hour hours later?" asked Hermione.
"Well, yeah, he went a bit odd toward the end," conceded George.
"But before he went loopy he was the life and soul of the party," said Fred. "He used to down an entire bottle of firewhisky, then run onto the dance floor, hoist up his robes, and start pulling bunches of flowers out of his--"
"Yes, he sounds a real charmer," said Hermione, while Harry roared with laughter.
"Never married, for some reason," said Ron.
"You amaze me," said Hermione. #Quote by J.K. Rowling
Party quotes by Tom Allen
#74. If the parties get too close together they lose their identities, if they get too far apart you're not going to get a whole lot done because you almost always need to have some folks on the other side of the aisle to accomplish anything. #Quote by Tom Allen
Party quotes by Emily Post
#75. The joy of joys is the person of light but unmalicious humor. If you know any one who is gay, beguiling and amusing, you will, if you are wise, do everything you can to make him prefer your house and your table to any other; for where he is, the successful party is also. #Quote by Emily Post
Party quotes by Franklin D. Roosevelt
#76. The Democratic Party will live and continue to receive the support of the majority of Americans just so long as it remains a liberal party. #Quote by Franklin D. Roosevelt
Party quotes by William C. Brown
#77. In Italy, above all in view of the next general election, political parties, movements and new politicians continue to proliferate, naturally all inspired by the logic of the most severe, rigorous and atavistic stupidity. #Quote by William C. Brown
Party quotes by Lionel Shriver
#78. We have explicit expectations of ourselves in specific situations–beyond expectations; they are requirements. Some of these are small: If we are given a surprise party, we will be delighted. Others are sizable: if a parent dies, we will be grief-stricken. But perhaps in tandem with these expectations is the private fear that we will fail convention in the crunch. That we will receive the fateful phone call and our mother is dead and we feel nothing. I wonder if this quiet, unutterable little fear is even keener than the fear of the bad news itself: that we will discover ourselves to be monstrous. #Quote by Lionel Shriver
Party quotes by Hilary Thayer Hamann
#79. Sometimes life is irreverent, and you accidentally discover you are a party to irreverence, and it's hard to know what to do. #Quote by Hilary Thayer Hamann
Party quotes by Trae Crowder
#80. Jesus drank wine in the Bible, y'all. Yun's make up a bunch of shit he never said about gay people but then just ignore the fact that one time a party started sucking and he abracadabraed some well water into Pinot and got that bitch turnt! #Quote by Trae Crowder
Party quotes by Tabitha Suzuma
#81. Did you think I – I would be able to carry on, without you?" I sob, my voice muffled against his shoulder. "Did you think I'd manage to get through this thing called life without you by my side?"

"I thought you'd be better off without me – I didn't think, I couldn't think…" We are both sobbing now.

"Who else would run out on their own birthday party, force me barefoot down the fire escape, bring me fruit salad in bed, complain that I'm humming a pop song in the wrong key?" I am laughing and crying at once. "Who else would force me to dance in front of a complete stranger, learn to play the guitar overnight and accompany me when I sing?" I sniff hard and punch him on the shoulder. "How could I possibly live without you, you stupid, stupid idiot? #Quote by Tabitha Suzuma
Party quotes by Bernie Sanders
#82. Who do you think controls the Republican Party? Big money controls the Republican Party. This is where their campaign contributions come from. #Quote by Bernie Sanders
Party quotes by Ezra Taft Benson
#83. We must be devoted to sound principles in word and deed: principle above party, principle above pocketbook, principle above popularity. #Quote by Ezra Taft Benson
Party quotes by Sean Hannity
#84. Slave holding is very unusual among the English-speaking peoples. Canadians didn't do it. Australians didn't do it. The Democratic Party and the states they controlled did it! #Quote by Sean Hannity
Party quotes by Barack Obama
#85. One faction of one party, in one house of Congress, in one branch of government, doesn't get to shut down the entire government just to refight the results of an election. #Quote by Barack Obama
Party quotes by Robert Robinson
#86. He was a Labour MP so I asked him if it was true the House of Commons was a form of poor relief for the otherwise unemployable... #Quote by Robert Robinson
Party quotes by Lesley Gore
#87. It's my party and I'll cry if I want to. #Quote by Lesley Gore
Party quotes by Iain M. Banks
#88. In the dying days of the Gzilt civilisation, before its long-prepared-for elevation to something better and the celebrations to mark this momentous but joyful occasion, one of its last surviving ships encountered an alien vessel whose sole task was to deliver a very special party-goer to the festivities. #Quote by Iain M. Banks
Party quotes by Erik Qualman
#89. Successful companies in social media function more like entertainment companies, publishers, or party planners than as traditional advertisers. #Quote by Erik Qualman
Party quotes by Israel Shenker
#90. A [Jewish] woman could not divorce her husband, but she could petition for divorce, and the religious courts could force him to grant the divorce on grounds of impotence, denial of conjugal rights, or unreasonable restriction of her freedom-for example, preventing her from attending funerals or wedding parties. #Quote by Israel Shenker
Party quotes by Ed Rollins
#91. The Republican Party, which John McCain led as our nominee in 2008, is going to become irrelevant if we become the party of intolerance and hate. The party founded by Abraham Lincoln was a party that fought slavery and intolerance at every level. #Quote by Ed Rollins
Party quotes by Todd Gitlin
#92. Right now, we have no possibility of politics because we have a one-party state. #Quote by Todd Gitlin
Party quotes by Rainn Wilson
#93. My Favorite Kid President Quotes "Create something that will make the world more awesome." "Treat everybody like it's their birthday." "If you can't think of anything nice to say, you're not thinking hard enough." "Be somebody who makes everybody feel like a somebody." "Give the world a reason to dance!" "Us humans are capable of war and sadness and other terrible stuff. But also CUPCAKES!" "Love changes everything so fill the world with it!" "Grown-ups who dream are the best kinds of grown-ups." "Don't be IN a party. BE a party." And my personal favorite, "Mail someone a corn dog. #Quote by Rainn Wilson
Party quotes by Roger Milla
#94. Here in Cameroon, football is our leading political party. It's football alone that that unites us, it's football alone that brings us good things - football is the window into our country - so we don't mess around with it. #Quote by Roger Milla
Party quotes by Rod Beckstrom
#95. Now, with a warrant, they can always go to the information service provider and attempt to get that information. But even then, they may not be able to because the party selling the encryption services may be a third party and may not even know who the parties are that are communicating. #Quote by Rod Beckstrom
Party quotes by Frans De Waal
#96. If both parties have a stake in the other, the chances of them killing each other are going to be reduced. #Quote by Frans De Waal
Party quotes by Kobe Bryant
#97. The party's just getting started. This is where the fun starts. #Quote by Kobe Bryant
Party quotes by Howard Dean
#98. So what we - all we really want, I think, from the so-called Democratic wing of the Democratic Party is really to stand up for what we believe in. #Quote by Howard Dean
Party quotes by Jack Kingston
#99. What I would ask the Democrat Party is to put your plan on the table, because most people agree with the facts, and the facts are that Social Security is running out of money. #Quote by Jack Kingston
Party quotes by Charles Dickens
#100. I believe no satirist could breathe this air. If another Juvenal or Swift could rise up among us tomorrow, he would be hunted down. If you have any knowledge of our literature, and can give me the name of any man, American born and bred, who has anatomised our follies as a people, and not as this or that party; and who has escaped the foulest and most brutal slander, the most inveterate hatred and intolerant pursuit; it will be a strange name in my ears, believe me. #Quote by Charles Dickens
Party quotes by Lydia M. Child
#101. I do not know how the affair at Canterbury is generally considered; but I have heard individuals of all parties and all opinions speak of it and never without merriment or indignation. Fifty years hence, the black laws of Connecticut will be a greater source of amusement to the antiquarian, than her famous blue laws. #Quote by Lydia M. Child
Party quotes by Michael Scott
#102. Reverse psychology is an awesome tool, I don't know if you guys know about it, but basically you can make someone think the opposite of what you believe, and that tricks them into doing something stupid. Works like a charm. #Quote by Michael Scott
Party quotes by Amartya Sen
#103. If the government is vulnerable to public opinion, then famines are a dreadfully bad thing to have. You can't win many elections after a famine, and you don't like being criticized by newspapers, opposition parties in parliament, and so on. Democracy gives the government an immediate political incentive to act. #Quote by Amartya Sen
Party quotes by Bill Maher
#104. In Europe, Socialism is just another political party. It just means that government takes over certain things like hospitals, prisons, military and schools that should not be run for profit. #Quote by Bill Maher
Party quotes by Simon Rex
#105. I remember one time I went to a party and I had to interview Reese Witherspoon. She was just in this movie "Freeway," it's like 1996. To prepare for the interview I went to meet her at this release party, and I end up getting in this fist fight with a guy. I'm not much of a fighter but I get in this fight and the press was all there and they saw me, and all of a sudden the next day in the paper was 'Simon Rex and his posse get in scuffle, and Simon crashes a bottle over a guy's head after smoking crack in the bathroom.' I saved the article forever. #Quote by Simon Rex
Party quotes by Dorothea Lasky
#106. Real poetry is a party, a wild party, a party where anything might happen. A party from which you may never return home. #Quote by Dorothea Lasky
Party quotes by Bernie Sanders
#107. I am running for president as a Democrat. And if elected, not only do I hope to bring forth a major change in national priorities, but let me be frank, I do want to see major changes in the Democratic Party. #Quote by Bernie Sanders
Party quotes by James Morcan
#108. Democrats and Republicans were essentially the same party with different faces and that was why, no matter how many promises each leader made, significant change rarely transpired. #Quote by James Morcan
Party quotes by Michael Stipe

Party quotes by Barry Humphries
#110. To live in Australia permanently is rather like going to a party and dancing all night with one's mother. #Quote by Barry Humphries
Party quotes by Cory Booker
#111. When I go about my own politics, I meet Tea Party supporters who I can work with in Congress, that I find common ground with. I find Tea Party supporters who won't let me get a sentence out without judging me. To say that there is a 'Tea Party supporter' is a gross generality. #Quote by Cory Booker
Party quotes by Justin Raimondo
#112. It is easier for a political party to attain national ballot status in Russia today than it is for the Libertarian party or the Green party to get on the ballot in, say, Pennsylvania. #Quote by Justin Raimondo
Party quotes by Kapil Dev
#113. Irrespective of any political party, I am a supporter of good people who want to do something for the society. #Quote by Kapil Dev

Party quotes by Larry  Mitchell
#115. HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR WORK?

I'd say it's like…that's always the toughest question to answer…I'd say it's like John Updike getting felt up by Clive Barker at a party thrown by Norman Mailer, with Aphex Twin DJing the event. #Quote by Larry Mitchell
Party quotes by Victoria Scott

Party quotes by Tom DeLay
#117. For all its faults, it is partisanship - based on core principles- that clarifies our debates, that prevents one party from straying too far from the mainstream and that constantly refreshes our politics with new ideas and new leaders. #Quote by Tom DeLay
Party quotes by Tom Vilsack
#118. I don't think the face of the Democratic Party is Nancy Pelosi. #Quote by Tom Vilsack
Party quotes by Richelle Mead
#119. I can say you're okay for an irreverent party boy with occasional moments of brilliance."
"Brilliant? You think I'm brilliant?"
He threw his hands skyward. "You hear

Party quotes by Clement Attlee
#120. If you begin to consider yourself solely responsible to a political party, you're half-way to a dictatorship. #Quote by Clement Attlee
Party quotes by Tony Campolo
#121. The reason why I buy into the Democratic Party more than the Republican Party is because there are over 2,000 verses of Scripture that deal with responding to the needs of the poor. #Quote by Tony Campolo
Party quotes by Nicola Sturgeon
#122. Not once in my life has the Tory Party come anywhere close to winning an election in Scotland, and yet, for more than half my life, we have had a Tory government. That is wrong and undemocratic. #Quote by Nicola Sturgeon
Party quotes by Renesmee Stormer
#123. i wonder where you are right now
what are you doing?
what are you thinking about?

is it me
and what we used to be?
or is it someone else again?

do i ever cross your mind?
do you think about me now when i'm not there?
did you think about me when i was?

i wonder what we could have been
would there have been evenings by the fireplace
as you read to me?

or the candle light dinners on our balcony
because it was your last minute surprise?

would there have been long walks in central park on valentine's day evening?
or just any other night you wanted an excuse to hold my hand?

would there have been movie nights
after cancelling on that boring party we planned?

would there still have been a me and you
if i hadn't made you feel blue?

did i burn the bridge we found home at?
was i really such a brat?

then i'm sorry, i always say
but you didn't hear it as you walked away #Quote by Renesmee Stormer
Party quotes by Khem Veasna
#124. Virtue inside is the real value of human, if ldp cannot rule this country, of course our country not yet be cured. All LDP (League for Democracy Party) supporters must be clear this point. #Quote by Khem Veasna
Party quotes by Sarah J. Maas
#125. Well, I care what you think of me. I care enough that I stayed at this disgusting party for you. And I care enough that I'd attend a thousand more like it so I can spend a few hours with you when you aren't looking at me like I'm not worth the dirt beneath your shoes. #Quote by Sarah J. Maas
Party quotes by G.M.W. Wemyss
#126. There are two primary strains in the Conservative Party: grocers, and grandees. … By 'grandees' and 'grocers', I am not referring to social class or any of that; nor do I refer to the Worshipful Company of Grocers, all cloves and camels. I refer rather to two fundamental positions within the Conservative Party, regardless of one's antecedents. … A grandee Conservative sees the country as a village: a village of which he and his party, when in government, act the Squire. As the Squire, the grandee moves jovially amongst his tenants in their tied cottages, dispensing largesse and reproof…. There are two problems with this model. The first is that HMG is not the Squire and the subjects of the Crown are not the smocked tenantry of the government of the day. The second is that these principles – or instincts, as one can hardly call them principles – however different they may be to the fiercely held maxims of Labour old and new, lead in the end to the same statist solutions as those the Left proposes, and to accepting and 'managing' statism when a Conservative government succeeds a Labour one. It is the grocers who will always and rightly attempt to roll back the State and its reach in favour of liberty. #Quote by G.M.W. Wemyss
Party quotes by Bethenny Frankel
#127. No matter where you are right now, no matter far along you are on your own path, don't wait to "have it all" to celebrate. You're never going to figure it all out. Make being happy your business, all along the way. Life can't be one long, tough haul, with a little party at the end. What good is that? Life should be punctuated with celebrations and you have to build them into your time because being happy isn't easy. #Quote by Bethenny Frankel
Party quotes by Ludwig Von Mises
#128. There is but one means available to improve the material conditions of mankind: to accelerate the growth of capital accumulated as against the growth in population. The greater the amount of capital invested per head of the worker, the more and better goods can be produced and consumed. This is what capitalism, the much abused profit system, has brought about and brings about daily anew. Yet, most present-day governments and political parties are eager to destroy this system. #Quote by Ludwig Von Mises
Party quotes by Penny Reid
#129. The rest of me was gorging itself on pity party pie. #Quote by Penny Reid
Party quotes by John Boozman
#130. Well you know I'm very supportive of what the Tea Party is trying to do. They're very concerned with spending, the deficit, the bailouts, you know all of those kinds of things. But I really think that the strength of the Tea Party is being a grassroots movement. #Quote by John Boozman
Party quotes by Barbara Walters
#131. I can get a better grasp of what is going on in the world from one good Washington dinner party than from all the background information NBC piles on my desk. #Quote by Barbara Walters
Party quotes by Bobby Jindal

Party quotes by Cassandra Clare
#133. James had thought he wanted a friend like himself, a parabatai who was shy and quiet and would enter in on James's feelings about the terror of parties. Instead here was Matthew, who was the life and soul of every party, who made dreadful hairbrush decisions, who was unexpectedly and terribly kind. Who had tried to be his friend and kept trying, even though James did not know what trying to be a friend looked like. Who could see James, even when he was a shadow. Yes, #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Party quotes by Rebecca Flowers
#134. You know how you're at a party and you pick up the wrong beer, and you know after one sip that it's not yours? But then, when you find the right one, you know it right away? Why? What is it? The temperature, or the taste of your own spit that you somehow recognize? Or the weight and moistness of the can? Or maybe everything, all together. But it's all so subtle and complex you can't explain it. If someone asked, How do you know that's your beer? well, you wouldn't know what to say. You just know. #Quote by Rebecca Flowers
Party quotes by Max Beesley
#135. I hardly ever go to showbiz parties, it's not my style. That doesn't mean to say I don't have a good time. I love hanging out with mates. #Quote by Max Beesley
Party quotes by Rick Scott
#136. I stand for limited government, fiscal responsibility, personal freedom, personal responsibility, so the Republican Party will support me. #Quote by Rick Scott
Party quotes by Debbie Wasserman Schultz
#137. Their callous indifference to the plight of children streaming across the border, fleeing horrific circumstances in their own country. Republicans are simply strangled by extremism. There is no more establishment, or middle or moderate wing. You've got the Steve King wing of the Republican Party today, who raised the specter of impeachment this weekend. #Quote by Debbie Wasserman Schultz
Party quotes by Walter Scott
#138. In love quarrels the party that loves the most is always most willing to acknowledge the greater fault. #Quote by Walter Scott
Party quotes by Charles A. Beard
#139. The functions of the president are prescribed by the Constitution, but his real achievements are not set by the letter of the law. They are determined rather by his personality, the weight of his influence, his capacity for managing men, and the strength and effectiveness of the party forces behind him. #Quote by Charles A. Beard
Party quotes by Frantz Fanon
#140. A government or a party gets the people it deserves and sooner or later a people gets the government it deserves. #Quote by Frantz Fanon
Party quotes by Tom Jones
#141. Music is great; it all depends on what mood you're in, what you want to listen to. If it's party time, you listen to, you know, party music, if you want to dance with somebody. But then again, if it's a slow dance, you need something slow. #Quote by Tom Jones
Party quotes by Becca Fitzpatrick
#142. I don't see any police cars."
"They probably had to park a couple blocks over. Anyway, as I was saying, I noticed illegal substances in the hands of a few guests."
"So?" she snapped. "It's a party."
"Alcohol is illegal under the age of twenty-one."
"Great!" Marcie shouted. "What am I going to do?" She paused, then raised her voice again. "You probably called them!"
"Who, me?" Vee said. "And lose the free food? No way. #Quote by Becca Fitzpatrick
Party quotes by Michelle McNamara
#143. Looking back now, it feels like I was born into a party that had started to wind down. #Quote by Michelle McNamara
Party quotes by A. Meredith Walters
#144. I seemed to recall a party when I was five, complete with scary clowns and pony rides. Maybe it was the clowns that ruined me for all future birthdays. Because those fuckers are scary. #Quote by A. Meredith Walters
Party quotes by Ree Drummond
#145. Once the wedding gift was out of the way, Marlboro Man and I had to check one last item off our list before we entered the Wedding Zone: premarital counseling. It was a requirement of the Episcopal church, these one-hour sessions with the semiretired interim priest who led our church at the time. Logically, I understood the reasoning behind the practice of premarital discussions with a man of the cloth. Before a church sanctions a marriage union, it wants to ensure the couple grasps the significance and gravity of the (hopefully) eternal commitment they're making. It wants to give the couple things to think about, ideas to ponder, matters to get straight. It wants to make sure it's not sending two young lovers into what could be an avoidable domestic catastrophe. Logically, I grasped the concept.
Practically, however, it was an uncomfortable hour of sitting across from a sweet minister who meant well and asked the right questions, but who had clearly run out of juice in the zest-for-marriage department. It was emotional drudgery for me; not only did I have to rethink obvious things I'd already thought about a thousand times, but I also had to watch Marlboro Man, a quiet, shy country boy, assimilate and answer questions put to him by a minister he'd only recently met on the subject of love, romance, and commitment, no less. Though he was polite and reverent, I felt for him. These were things cowboys rarely talked about with a third party. #Quote by Ree Drummond
Party quotes by Charles Bukowski
#146. fuck


she pulled her dress off
over her head
and I saw the panties
indented somewhat into the
crotch.

it's only human.
now we've got to do it.
I've got to do it
after all that bluff.
it's like a party--
two trapped
idiots.

under the sheets
after I have snapped
off the light
her panties are still
on. she expects an
opening performance.
I can't blame her. but
wonder why she's here with
me? where are the other
guys? how can you be
lucky? having someone the
others have abandoned?

we didn't have to do it
yet we had to do it.
it was something like
establishing new credibility
with the income tax
man. I get the panties
off. I decide not to tongue her. even then
I'm thinking about
after it's over.

we'll sleep together
tonight
trying to fit ourselves
inside the wallpaper.

I try, fail,
notice the hair on her
head
mostly notice the hair
on her
head
and a glimpse of
nostrils
piglike

I try it again. #Quote by Charles Bukowski
Party quotes by Matt Kibbe
#147. Let us be clear about one thing: The tea party movement is not seeking a junior partnership with the Republican Party, but a hostile takeover of it. #Quote by Matt Kibbe
Party quotes by Rush Limbaugh
#148. They [the Democrat Party ] owed her everything. Hillary Clinton preserved the Democrat Party. She preserved the Bill Clinton career, meaning she preserved the Bill Clinton presidency, which meant that she preserved eight to ten years of constant victory over the Republicans and over conservatives. They betrayed her on a moment's notice. #Quote by Rush Limbaugh
Party quotes by Jack Kemp
#149. The leaders of the Democratic Party aren't soft on Communism. They're soft on Democracy. #Quote by Jack Kemp
Party quotes by Oliver Goldsmith
#150. Who, born for the universe, narrow'd his mind, And to party gave up what was meant for mankind; Though fraught with all learning, yet straining his throat To persuade Tommy Townshend to lend him a vote. Who too deep for his hearers still went on refining, And thought of convincing while they thought of dining: Though equal to all things, for all things unfit; Too nice for a statesman, too proud for a wit. #Quote by Oliver Goldsmith
Party quotes by Kendare Blake
#151. She clears her throat and does her best to start, laying out the technical specs of last year's party: who was there; what they were doing; why they came with this or that person. I guess she wants me to have a full and realistic picture. Some people need that, I suppose. Personally, I'm the type who likes to fill in the blanks and make it my own. It's probably better that way than it really was. #Quote by Kendare Blake
Party quotes by Hermann Goring
#152. I joined the party because I was a revolutionary, not because of any ideological nonsense. #Quote by Hermann Goring

Party quotes by Thomas B. Macaulay
#154. Then none was for a party; Than all were for the state; Then the great man helped the poor, And the poor man loved the great: Then lands were fairly portioned; Then spoils were fairly sold: The Romans were like brothers In the brave days of old. #Quote by Thomas B. Macaulay
Party quotes by Lilly Pulitzer
#155. Life's a party, dress like it. #Quote by Lilly Pulitzer
Party quotes by Nick Spalding
#156. The festivities have a fancy dress theme... inevitable. Here's what i consider to be an undisputed fact: nobody actually likes going to fancy dress parties. If the government declared tomorrow that fancy dress parties were banned, nobody would mind. Why? Because you spend the weeks before the bloody thing worrying about what to wear and how much it's going to cost you. Then you either trawl around the charity shops every afternoon until you find a leather jacket that look slightly like the one Indiana Jones wears, or you throw in the towel and buy one of those mass-produced nasty costumes that come in a bag and fall apart before you've even arrived at the party. Then you realize that everybody's costume is a hundred times better than yours, and you look like the special kid who always stand at the back of the school concert waving at the fire exit. #Quote by Nick Spalding
Party quotes by Jim Webb
#157. The NAACP believes the Tea Party is racist. The Tea Party believes the NAACP is racist. #Quote by Jim Webb
Party quotes by Mike Pence
#158. People in both parties are restless for change, ready to break free of old patterns in Washington. #Quote by Mike Pence
Party quotes by Julian Barnes
#159. The relationship between professional and domestic cook has similarities to a sexual encounter. One party is normally more experienced than the other; and either party should have the right, at any moment, to say, No, I'm not going to do that. #Quote by Julian Barnes
Party quotes by John Roberts
#160. Anytime you get nine people together, whether it's at a party or it's in the conference room of the Supreme Court, you do have to maintain some order, or it does kind of degenerate into squabbling pretty quickly. #Quote by John Roberts
Party quotes by Mark McKinnon
#161. You know, the Tea Party is a - first of all, it is a significant movement, and I think the media and some pundits have tried to write it off as a bunch of cranks or something. But, in fact, it's really a very legitimate and fairly significant swath of voters out there. #Quote by Mark McKinnon
Party quotes by Bob Ainsworth

Party quotes by Michael     Ryan
#164. THIS IS WHY

He will never be given to wonder much
if he was the mouth for some cruel force
that said it. But if he were
(this will comfort her) less than one moment
out of millions had he meant it.

So many years and so many turns
they had swerved around the subject.
And he will swear for many more
the kitchen and everything in it vanished --

the oak table, their guests, the refrigerator door
he had been surely propped against--
all changed to rusted ironwork and ash
except in the center in her linen caftan:
she was not touched.

He remembers the silence before he spoke
and her nodding a little,
as if in the meat of this gray waste
here was the signal

for him to speak what they had long agreed,
what somewhere they had prepared together.
And this one moment in the desert of ash
stretches into forever.

They had been having a dinner party.
She had been lonely.
A friend asked her almost joking
if she had ever felt really crazy,

and when she started to unwind her answer
in long, lovely sentences like scarves within her
he saw this was the way
they could no longer talk together.

And that is when he said it,
in front of the guests,
because he couldn't bear to hear her.
And this is why the guests have left
and she screams as he comes near her. #Quote by Michael Ryan
Party quotes by Raul Labrador
#165. The Republicans are not anti-Latinos. You know, I tell the story all the time that the Tea Party is the one that has actually brought out the Latinos. Look at Idaho. I actually ran against a person in my primary who was born and raised in Idaho who happened to be Caucasian, and they elected the guy who was from Puerto Rico with an accent. #Quote by Raul Labrador
Party quotes by Marc Maron
#166. I've had this look for about a year. I usually grow this beard out around Christmas. I like to go to malls dressed as Jesus, and I like to then walk around the mall and go, 'No! No! This wasn't what it was supposed to be about, people!' Then if there's a Santa at the mall, I walk up to him and say, 'Listen, fat man, you're just a clown at my birthday party.' #Quote by Marc Maron
Party quotes by Jonathan Richman
#167. They played Boston. They played at the Boston Tea Party and through an amazing chain of events I got to hang out with them backstage even though I was underage. #Quote by Jonathan Richman
Party quotes by Ron Fournier

Party quotes by Julie Bishop
#169. Tobacco companies are legally operating entities in Australia. If the Government thinks that they should not make donations to political parties, well then they should ban them operating as legally structured entities in Australia. #Quote by Julie Bishop
Party quotes by William J. Clinton
#170. There's a big conservative press unabashedly and for the Democrats and even people to the left of the Democratic party, there's almost virtually no outlets that you can compare with the vast array of conservative press that's out there. #Quote by William J. Clinton
Party quotes by George Orwell
#171. The birds sang, the proles sang. the Party did not sing. All round the world, in London and New York, in Africa and Brazil, and in the mysterious, forbidden lands beyond the frontiers, in the streets of Paris and Berlin, in the villages of the endless Russian plain, in the bazaars of China and Japan - everywhere stood the same solid unconquerable figure, made monstrous by work and childbearing, toiling from birth to death and still singing. #Quote by George Orwell
Party quotes by Kristin Michelle Elizabeth
#172. The life of the party is actually an introverted recluse. She knows the difference between being alone and being lonely. The latter is a feeling she has yet to experience. If she invites you into her world, she plans on keeping you. #Quote by Kristin Michelle Elizabeth
Party quotes by Rick Perlstein
#173. Political scientists have long argued that party identification is the best possible predictor of voting behavior and is remarkably sticky over time. #Quote by Rick Perlstein
Party quotes by Chanel Iman
#174. I'm really focused when I'm working out, so I don't really listen to music. I like to listen to music after, because it's like, 'Yeah! I finished! Let's party!' #Quote by Chanel Iman
Party quotes by Smokey Robinson
#175. People say I'm the life of the party Because I tell a joke or two Although I might be laughing loud and hearty Deep inside I'm blue So take a good look at my face You'll see my smile looks out of place If you look closer, it's easy to trace The tracks of my tears.. #Quote by Smokey Robinson
Party quotes by Ben Bagdikian
#176. In the US, voters cast ballots for individual candidates who are not bound to any party program except rhetorically, and not always then. Some Republicans are more liberal than some Democrats, some libertarians are more radical than some socialists, and many local candidates run without any party identification. No American citizen can vote intelligently without knowledge of the ideas, political background, and commitments of each individual candidate. #Quote by Ben Bagdikian
Party quotes by Michael Crichton
#177. Environmentalism needs to be absolutely based in objective and verifiable science, it needs to be rational, and it needs to be flexible. And it needs to be apolitical. To mix environmental concerns with the frantic fantasies that people have about one political party or another is to miss the cold truth - that there is very little difference between the parties, except a difference in pandering rhetoric. #Quote by Michael Crichton
Party quotes by Neil Gaiman
#178. Fiction is dangerous because it lets you into other people's heads. It shows you that the world doesn't have to be like the one you live in." At the first nationally recognized science fiction convention in China in 2007, Gaiman took a party official aside and said, "While not actually illegal, science fiction is regarded as dangerous and subversive in China. Why did you say yes to a science-fiction convention?"
The party official answered, "In China, we're really good at making things people bring to us, but we don't invent, we don't innovate." When Chinese party officials visited Google, Apple and Microsoft, they asked what the executives read as children. The official continued: "They all said, 'We read science fiction. The world doesn't have to be the way it is right now. We can change it.' " "That," said Gaiman, "is the big dangerous thing. #Quote by Neil Gaiman
Party quotes by Gilles Deleuze
#179. Of course, Kafka doesn't see himself as a sort of party. He doesn't even pretend to be revolutionary, whatever his socialist sympathies may be. He knows that all the lines link him to a literary machine of expression for which he is simultaneously the gears, the mechanic, the operator, and the victim. So how will he proceed in this bachelor machine that doesn't make use of, and can't make use of, social critique? How will he make a revolution?
He will act on the German language such as it is in Czechoslovakia. Since it is a deterritorialized language in many ways, he will push the deterritorialization farther, not through intensities, reversals and thickenings of the language but through a sobriety that makes language take flight on a straight line, anticipates or produces its segmentations. Expression must sweep up content; the same process must happen to form ... It is not a politics of pessimism, nor a literary caricature or a form of science fiction. #Quote by Gilles Deleuze
Party quotes by Hannah Arendt
#180. It is in the nature of all party systems that the authentically political talents can assert themselves only in rare cases, and it is even rarer that the specifically political qualifications survive the petty maneuvers of party politics with its demands for plain salesmanship. #Quote by Hannah Arendt

Party quotes by Joanna Russ
#183. Now in my eleven years of conventional life I had learned many things and one of them is what it means to be convicted of rape--I do not mean the man who did it, I mean the woman to whom it was done. Rape is one of the Christian mysteries, it creates a luminous and beautiful tableau in people's minds; and as I listened furtively to what nobody would allow me to hear straight out, I slowly came to understand that I was face to face with one of those feminine disasters, like pregnancy, like disease, like weakness; she was not only the victim of the act but in some strange way its perpetrator; somehow she had attracted the lightening that struck her out of a clear sky. A diabolical chance--which was not chance--had revealed her to all of us as she truly was, in her secret inadequacy, in that wretched guiltiness which she had kept hidden for seventeen years but which now finally manifested in front of everybody. Her secret guilt was this:
She was Cunt.
She had "lost" something.
Now the other party to the incident had manifested his essential nature, too; he was Prick--but being Prick is not a bad thing. In fact, he had "gotten away with" something (possibly what she had "lost").
And there I was at eleven years of age:
She was out late at night.
She was in the wrong part of town.
Her skirt was too short and that provoked him.
She liked having her eye blacked and her head banged against the sidewalk.
I understood this perfectly. (I refle #Quote by Joanna Russ
Party quotes by Neal Stephenson
#184. Readers of this memo will be disappointed to know that Bong-Bong Gad (sic), designer/owner/driver/proprietor of the vehicle, anticipated the inevitable "there but for THE GRACE OF GOD go I" witticism by unloading same on Yours Truly while we were still shaking hands (Filipinos go in for long handshakes, and the first party to initiate termination of a handshake - usually the non-Filipino - is invariably left with a nagging feeling that he is a shithead) #Quote by Neal Stephenson
Party quotes by Harriet Harman
#185. Jeremy [Corbyn] earned the right to take up the leadership of the party with a big majority. But he has failed and he has no right or mandate to stay in office despite his failure and take the party down with him. #Quote by Harriet Harman
Party quotes by David Blunkett
#186. It is now in Gordon Brown's - and the Labour party's - best interests for those seeking the prime minister's immediate departure to back off #Quote by David Blunkett
Party quotes by Marie-Helene Bertino
#187. Thinking about him requires so little effort that she can do it while performing mindless activities. Soaping the dishes, replaiting Clare Kelley's hair, drying the dishes. The part of her brain that plays his ongoing reel is unconnected to the neurons and synapses that control things like conscious thought and logic. Ben turning to her at a party. Ben turning to her. Ben turning. What human being deserves to be the nucleus of such high esteem? Certainly not Benjamin, middle name Hal, last name Allen. Five-nine in boots. Who has a car that doesn't start on cold mornings, an unfinished screenplay, a law degree he doesn't use, a romantic's tendency to save movie stubs, and a mannered, unsmiling wife. #Quote by Marie-Helene Bertino
Party quotes by Aeschylus
#188. He hears but half who hears one party only. #Quote by Aeschylus
Party quotes by Isabella Beeton
#189. The half-hour before dinner has always been considered as the great ordeal through which the mistress, in giving a dinner-party, will either pass with flying colours, or lose many of her laurels. #Quote by Isabella Beeton
Party quotes by Eleanor Roosevelt
#190. The war for freedom will never really be won because the price of freedom is constant vigilance over ourselves and over our Government. #Quote by Eleanor Roosevelt
Party quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#191. The only real radicalism in our time will come as it always has - from people who insist on thinking for themselves and who reject party-mindedness. #Quote by Christopher Hitchens
Party quotes by Mohammed Saeed Al-Sahaf
#192. They fled. The American louts fled. Indeed, concerning the fighting waged by the heroes of the Arab Socialist Baath Party yesterday, one amazing thing really is the cowardice of the American soldiers. we had not anticipated this. #Quote by Mohammed Saeed Al-Sahaf
Party quotes by Catherine Townsend-Lyon
#193. Just because you may live your life in recovery, surely doesn't mean the PARTY IS OVER, Nope!, it just means you can remember what you DID LAST NIGHT!.LOL #Quote by Catherine Townsend-Lyon
Party quotes by Daphne Du Maurier
#194. Seen on her own, the woman was not so remarkable. Tall, angular, aquiline features, with the close-cropped hair which was fashionably called an Eton crop, he seemed to remember, in his mother's day, and about her person the stamp of that particular generation. She would be in her middle sixties, he supposed, the masculine shirt with collar and tie, sports jacket, grey tweed skirt coming to mid-calf. Grey stockings and laced black shoes. He had seen the type on golf courses and at dog shows - invariably showing not sporting breeds but pugs - and if you came across them at a party in somebody's house they were quicker on the draw with a cigarette lighter than he was himself, a mere male, with pocket matches. The general belief that they kept house with a more feminine, fluffy companion was not always true. Frequently they boasted, and adored, a golfing husband. ("Don't Look Now") #Quote by Daphne Du Maurier
Party quotes by Mindy Kaling
#195. When most people sing karaoke, they think of themselves as contestants on American Idol, and they sing and perform their hearts out. But I really think people should be thinking of themselves more as temporary DJs for the party. It's kind of a responsibility. It's up to you to sing a kick-ass upbeat song that sets the mood for your friends to have fun, drink, and pick up girls and guys. #Quote by Mindy Kaling
Party quotes by Chen Shui-bian
#196. In the 1999 resolution regarding Taiwan's future passed by the Democratic Progressive Party, it is stated very clearly that any change to the status quo of Taiwan must be decided by the people of Taiwan through referenda. #Quote by Chen Shui-bian
Party quotes by Thomas Frank
#197. There is much to dislike about President Obama's approach to the financial crisis. But opposition, it seems, will have to come from somewhere other than conservatism. The party out of power is also a party out of touch. #Quote by Thomas Frank
Party quotes by Charles Dickens
#198. Show Pleasant Riderhood a Wedding in the street, and she only saw two people taking out a regular license to quarrel and fight. Show her a Christening, and she saw a little heathen personage having a quite superfluous name bestowed upon it, inasmuch as it would be commonly addressed by some abusive epithet; which little personage was not in the least wanted by anybody, and would be shoved and banged out of everybody's way, until it should grow big enough to shove and bang. Show her a Funeral, and she saw an unremunerative ceremony in the nature of a black masquerade, conferring a temporary gentility on the performers, at an immense expense, and representing the only formal party ever given by the deceased. Show her a live father, and she saw but a duplicate of her own father, who from her infancy had been taken with fits and starts of discharging his duty to her, which duty was always incorporated in the form of a fist or a leathern strap, and being discharged hurt her. All things considered, therefore, Pleasant Riderhood was not so very, very bad. #Quote by Charles Dickens
Party quotes by Rush Limbaugh
#199. It was all for the eventual payoff and thank-you by giving Hillary Clinton the Democrat Party presidential nomination. And it went awry in 2008 because somebody they liked better came along. Somebody they really liked better. I mean, somebody they loved better. They threw her overboard like an unwanted sack of potatoes down on the farm for Barack Hussein Obama. And she seethed, felt betrayed. Don't blame her a bit. They betrayed her big time. #Quote by Rush Limbaugh
Party quotes by Mitt Romney
#200. In France, for instance, I'm told that marriage is now frequently contracted in seven-year terms where either party may move on when their term is up. How shallow and how different from the Europe of the past. #Quote by Mitt Romney
