Every time I fill a vacant office I make ten malcontents and one ingrate.
Vile and ingrate! too late thou shalt repentThe base Injustice thou hast done my Love:Yes, thou shalt know, spite of thy past Distress,And all those Ills which thou so long hast mourn'd;Heav'n has no Rage, like Love to Hatred turn'd,Nor Hell a Fury, like a Woman scorn'd.william congreve
Coming in, I was denounced as a fraud by all the extreme men of the opposing party, and as an ingrate and a traitor by the same class of men in my own party. Going out, I have the good will, blessings, and approval of the best people of all parties and sections.rutherford b. hayes
