Party Membership

Paul Valéry (1871-1945), Collected Works, Vol. 14: Analects, tr. Stuart Gilbert (Princeton: Princeton University Press, 1970), p. 71:
You belong to a party, my friend. That is to say, you have to applaud or vilify though it goes against the grain. The party insists on it.

Vous êtes d'un parti, mon ami, c'est-à-dire que vous applaudissez ou injuriez contre votre coeur. Le parti le veut.
