Politics

Now, we deny not, but that politicians may sometimes abuse religion, and make it serve for the promoting of their own private interests and designs; which yet they could not do so well neither, were the thing itself a mere cheat and figment of their own, and had no reality at all in nature, nor anything solid at the bottom of it.
- Cudworth, Ralph J.
Politics Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Politics

1.
Any 20 year-old who isn't a liberal doesn't have a heart, and any 40 year-old who isn't a conservative doesn't have a brain.
Churchill, Winston

2.
A politician would do well to remember that he has to live with his conscience longer than he does with his constituents.
Laird, Melvin R.

3.
Politicians -- power itself -- are abject because they merely embody the profound contempt people have for their own lives. One should be grateful to the politicians for accepting the abstractness of power, and ridding others of its burden. This inevitably kills them but they get their revenge by passing onto others the corpse of power.
Baudrillard, Jean

4.
It is unfair to expect a politician to live in private up to the statements he makes in public.
Maugham, W. Somerset

5.
In politics, an absurdity in public business is going into it.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

6.
Bad officials are the ones elected by good citizens who do not vote.
Nathan, George Jean

7.
When we got into office, the thing that surprised me most was to find that things were just as bad as we'd been saying they were.
Kennedy, John F.

8.
To rely upon conviction, devotion, and other excellent spiritual qualities -- that is not to be taken seriously in politics.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

9.
To speak on without saying anything has always been the greatest gift of orators.
Platen

10.
Some men change their party for the sake of their principles; others their principles for the sake of their party.
Churchill, Winston

11.
A sophistical rhetorician, inebriated with the exuberance of his own verbosity, and gifted with an egotistical imagination that can at all times command an interminable and inconsistent series of arguments to malign an opponent and to glorify himself.
Disraeli, Benjamin

12.
Only he has the calling for politics who is sure that he will not crumble when the world from his point of view is too stupid or base for what he wants to offer. Only he who in the face of all this can say In spite of all! has the calling for politics.
Weber, Max

13.
A radical is a man with both feet firmly planted in the air.
Roosevelt, Franklin D.

14.
Politics are for foreigners with their endless wrongs and paltry rights. Politics are a lousy way to get things done. Politics are, like God's infinite mercy, a last resort.
O'Rourke, P. J.

15.
One has to be a lowbrow, a bit of a murderer, to be a politician, ready and willing to see people sacrificed, slaughtered, for the sake of an idea, whether a good one or a bad one.
Miller, Henry

16.
Politics has become so expensive that it takes a lot of money even to be defeated.
Rogers, Will

17.
We mean by politics the people's business -- the most important business there is.
Stevenson, Adlai E.

18.
The one thing sure about politics is that what goes up comes down and what goes down often comes up.
Nixon, Richard M.

19.
Politics can be relatively fair in the breathing spaces of history; at its critical turning points there is no other rule possible than the old one, that the end justifies the means.
Koestler, Arthur

20.
Politics is the gizzard of society, full of gut and gravel.
Thoreau, Henry David

21.
If there is anything a public servant hates to do it is something for the public.
Hubbard, Kin

22.
Republicans believe every day is the Fourth of July, but the democrats believe every day is April 15.
Reagan, Ronald

23.
Nothing can so alienate a voter from the political system as backing a winning candidate.
Mark B. Cohen

24.
The more you read and observe about this Politics thing, you got to admit that each party is worse than the other. The one that's out always looks the best.
Will Rogers

25.
There are no true friends in politics. We are all sharks circling, and waiting, for traces of blood to appear in the water.
Clark, Alan

26.
The average educated man in America has about as much knowledge of what a political idea is as he has of the principles of counterpoint. Each is a thing used in politics or music which those fellows who practice politics or music manipulate somehow. Show him one and he will deny that it is politics at all. It must be corrupt or he will not recognize it. He has only seen dried figs. He has only thought dried thoughts. A live thought or a real idea is against the rules of his mind.
Chapman, John Jay

27.
Politics makes strange postmasters.
Hubbard, Kin

28.
The reason political party platforms are so long is that when you straddle anything it takes a long time to explain it.
Rogers, Will

29.
The Prime Minister has an absolute genius for putting flamboyant labels on empty luggage.
Bevan, Aneurin

30.
Nothing is so foolish, they say, as for a man to stand for office and woo the crowd to win its vote, buy its support with presents, court the applause of all those fools and feel self-satisfied when they cry their approval, and then in his hour of triumph to be carried round like an effigy for the public to stare at, and end up cast in bronze to stand in the market place.
Erasmus, Desiderius

31.
Politics is a place of humble hopes and strangely modest requirements, where all are good who are not criminal and all are wise who are not ridiculously otherwise.
Colby, Frank Moore

32.
Political success is the ability, when the inevitable occurs, to get credit for it.
Peter, Laurence J.

33.
One can say that three pre-eminent qualities are decisive for the politician: passion, a feeling of responsibility, and a sense of proportion.
Weber, Max

34.
There is no gambling like politics. Nothing in which the power of circumstance is more evident.
Disraeli, Benjamin

35.
One thing about a pig, he thinks he's warm if his nose is warm. I saw a bunch of pigs one time that had frozen together in a rosette, each one's nose tucked under the rump of the one in front. We have a lot of pigs in politics.
Mccarthy, Eugene J.

36.
The first requirement of politics is not intellect or stamina but patience. Politics is a very long run game and the tortoise will usually beat the hare.
Major, John

37.
In politics, being ridiculous is more damaging than being extreme.
Hattersley, Roy

38.
Whether elected or appointed he considers himself the Lord's anointed, and indeed the ointment lingers on him so thick you can't get your fingers on him.
Nash, Ogden

39.
The house of Lords is a model on how to care for the elderly.
Field, Franklin

40.
This country has gotten where it is in spite of politics, not by the aid of it. That we have carried as much political bunk as we have and still survived shows we are a super nation.
Rogers, Will

41.
All political parties die at last of swallowing their own lies.
Arbuthnot, John

42.
The House of Lords is the British Outer Mongolia for retired politicians.
Benn, Tony

43.
Politics, when I am in it, it makes me sick.
Taft, William Howard

44.
If American politics does not look to you like a joke, a tragic dance; if you have enough blindness left in you, on any plea, on any excuse, to vote for the Democratic Party or the Republican Party (for at present machine and party are one), or for any candidate who does not stand for a new era, -- then you yourself pass into the slide of the magic-lantern; you are an exhibit, a quaint product, a curiosity of the American soil. You are part of the problem.
Chapman, John Jay

45.
It is my settled opinion, after some years as a political correspondent, that no one is attracted to a political career in the first place unless he is socially or emotionally crippled.
Waugh, Auberon

46.
Hell hath no fury like a crooked politician denied his cut.
Montalbano, Benjamin J.

47.
As usual the Liberals offer a mixture of sound and original ideas. Unfortunately none of the sound ideas is original and none of the original ideas is sound.
Macmillan, Harold

48.
What the statesman is most anxious to produce is a certain moral character in his fellow citizens, namely a disposition to virtue and the performance of virtuous actions.
Aristotle

49.
The bright old day now dawns again; the cry runs through the land, in England there shall be dear bread -- in Ireland,sword and brand; and poverty, and ignorance, shall swell the rich and grand, so rally round the rulers with the gentle iron hand, of the fine old English Tory days; hail to the coming time!
Dickens, Charles

50.
You know, what I very well know, that I bought you. And I know, what perhaps you think I don't know, you are now selling yourselves to somebody else; and I know, what you do not know, that I am buying another borough. May God's curse light upon you all: may your houses be as open and common to all Excise Officers as your wives and daughters were to me, when I stood for your scoundrel corporation.
Henley, Anthony
