Cytaty William Taft

„The President so fully represents his party“

— William Howard Taft
Context: The President so fully represents his party, which secures political power by its promise to the people, and the whole government is so identified in the minds of the people with his personality that they make him responsible for all the sins of omission and of commission of society at large. This would be ludicrous if it did not have sometimes serious results. The President cannot make clouds to rain and cannot make the corn to grow, he cannot make business good; although when these things occur, political parties do claim some credit for the things that have happened in this way. He has no power of state legislation, which covers a very wide field and which comes in many respects much closer to the happiness of the people than the Federal Government.

„I am a Unitarian. I believe in God.“

— William Howard Taft
Context: I am a Unitarian. I believe in God. I do not believe in the divinity of Christ, and there are many postulates of the orthodox creed to which I cannot subscribe. Letter to Yale University (1899), quoted in Henry F. Pringle, William Howard Taft: The Life and Times, vol. 1, p. 45 (1939).

„The publishers profess to be the agents of heaven in establishing virtue“

— William Howard Taft
Context: The publishers profess to be the agents of heaven in establishing virtue and therefore that they ought to receive some subsidy from the government. I can ask no stronger refutation to this claim … than the utterly unscrupulous methods pursued by them in seeking to influence Congress on this subject. Quoted in Henry Fowles Pringle (1939), The Life and Times of William Howard Taft, referring to a postal rate increase affecting popular magazines.

„Politics, when I am in it, makes me sick.“

— William Howard Taft
Quoted in Archibald W. Butt (1930), Taft and Roosevelt.

„If humor be the safety of our race, then it is due largely to the infusion into the American people of the Irish brain.“

Irish Humor, address in Hot Springs, Virginia (5 August 1908) [http://www.authentichistory.com/1900s/1908election/19080805_William_H_Taft-Irish_Humor.html].
