My mother would organize huge parties for my elementary school classmates. To prepare, she would go back to the bakery in her old neighborhood of Inwood and get special shamrock cookies. Hawaiian Punch was served and we had shamrock napkins. It was a lot of fun.
The problem with pity parties is very few people come, and those who do don't bring presents.
A lot of people say to me, 'Why did you kill Christ?' I dunno, it was one of those parties, got out of hand, you know.
Negotiating in the classic diplomatic sense assumes parties more anxious to agree than to disagree.
You watch television and see what's going on on this debt ceiling issue. And what I consider to be a total lack of leadership from the President and nothing's going to get fixed until the President himself steps up and wrangles both parties in Congress.
By 2000, politics will simply fade away. We will not see any political parties.
R. Buckminster Fuller
The truth is I hate cocktail parties when the only person I know is my supposed date, and he abandons me the minute we come in the door.
Mary Higgins Clark
Almost all of our relationships begin and most of them continue as forms of mutual exploitation, a mental or physical barter, to be terminated when one or both parties run out of goods.
W. H. Auden
The most important single central fact about a free market is that no exchange takes place unless both parties benefit.
Insanity in individuals is something rare - but in groups, parties, nations and epochs, it is the rule.
The one charm about marriage is that it makes a life of deception absolutely necessary for both parties.
I love everything about the holidays: the decorations, the parties, and spending time with friends and family. What I love most is that feeling of giving back. Every bit counts.

It's really important to have balance, spend some time in nature, go to a few parties, enjoy my friends and really chill out.
A Republic without parties is a complete anomaly. The histories of all popular governments show absurd is the idea of their attempting to exist without parties.
Some people start modeling because they want to be models and they want the parties and the recognition, and then there are people like me. I come from a simple family, and for me getting into modeling was a chance to make money and create a business.
I get uncomfortable when people give me presents and watch me open them. I don't have birthday parties, because the idea of a group of people singing and looking at me while I'm blowing out candles gives me hives.
The great advantage of being a writer is that you can spy on people. You're there, listening to every word, but part of you is observing. Everything is useful to a writer, you see - every scrap, even the longest and most boring of luncheon parties.
There are many deaf people who couldn't imagine living in a marriage without someone who doesn't speak their language.

For my part, I consider that it will be found much better by all parties to leave the past to history, especially as I propose to write that history myself.
What I don't like about office Christmas parties is looking for a job the next day.
Run for office? No. I've slept with too many women, I've done too many drugs, and I've been to too many parties.
Leonardo da Vinci
