Congress

I believe if we introduced the Lord's Prayer here, senators would propose a large number of amendments to it.
- Wilson, Henry
Congress Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Congress

1.
This is a Senate of equals, of men of individual honor and personal character, and of absolute independence. We know no masters, we acknowledge no dictators. This is a hall for mutual consultation and discussion; not an arena for the exhibition of champions.
Webster, Daniel

2.
There are two enemies to every bill proposed in Congress, the fools who favor it and the lunatics who oppose it.

3.
Oh, I don't blame Congress. If I had $600 billion at my disposal, I'd be irresponsible, too.
Lichty and Wagner

4.
The American, if he has a spark of national feeling, will be humiliated by the very prospect of a foreigner's visit to Congress -- these, for the most part, illiterate hacks whose fancy vests are spotted with gravy, and whose speeches, hypocritical, unctuous, and slovenly, are spotted also with the gravy of political patronage, these persons are a reflection on the democratic process rather than of it; they expose it in its process rather than of it; they expose it in its underwear.
Mccarthy, Mary

5.
I believe if we introduced the Lord's Prayer here, senators would propose a large number of amendments to it.
Wilson, Henry

6.
It could probably be shown by facts and figures that there is no distinctly American criminal class except Congress.
Mark Twain

7.
This country has come to feel the same when Congress is in session as when the baby gets hold of a hammer.
Will Rogers

8.
The debates of that great assembly are frequently vague and perplexed, seeming to be dragged rather than to march, to the intended goal. Something of this sort must, I think, always happen in public democratic assemblies.
Tocqueville, Alexis De

9.
The Few assume to be the deputies, but they are often only the despoilers of the Many.
Hegel, Georg

10.
I don't mind what Congress does, as long as they don't do it in the streets and frighten the horses.
Victor Hugo

11.
The Senate is a body of old men charged with high duties and misdemeanors.
Bierce, Ambrose

12.
We have the power to do any damn fool thing we want to do, and we seem to do it about every ten minutes.
Fulbright, J. William

13.
If we were left solely to the wordy wit of legislators in Congress for our guidance, uncorrected by the seasonal experience and the effectual complaints of the people, America would not long retain her rank among the nations.
Thoreau, Henry David

14.
There should be one day when there is open season on senators.
Rogers, Will

15.
With Congress, every time they make a joke it's a law, and every time they make a law it's a joke.
Rogers, Will

16.
Sure the people are stupid: the human race is stupid. Sure Congress is an inefficient instrument of government. But the people are not stupid enough to abandon representative government for any other kind, including government by the guy who knows.
Devoto, Bernard

17.
I have seen in the Halls of Congress more idealism, more humanness, more compassion, more profiles of courage than in any other institution that I have ever known.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

18.
Great is the power, great is the authority of a senate that is unanimous in its opinions.
Cicero, Marcus T.

19.
I have been up to see the Congress and they do not seem to be able to do anything except to eat peanuts and chew tobacco, while my army is starving.
Lee, Robert E.
