Cs Lewis Quotes

Politics are almost as exciting as war, and quite as dangerous ... [I]n war, you can only be killed once. But in politics many times.

Sir Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill

Politics is a game of friends.

Joseph Jacques Jean Chrtien

The art of politics is learning to walk with your back to the wall, your elbows high, and a smile on your face. It's a survival game played under the glare of lights.

Joseph Jacques Jean Chrtien

To be frank, politics is about wanting power, getting it, exercising it, and keeping it.

Joseph Jacques Jean Chrtien

There's no such thing as a genius in politics, or at least I have never met one. There are only human beings, some better than others, who rise or fall on the challenges they meet.

Joseph Jacques Jean Chrtien

Stop acting so small. You are the Universe in ecstatic motion.

Rumi

You cant publish a paper on physics without the full experimental data and results; that should be the standard in journalism.

Julian Paul Assange

The essence of mathematics lies entirely in its freedom.

Georg Ferdinand Ludwig Philipp Cantor

The fact that in Germany the politics were of the Right and in the United States of the Left should not mislead us. In both places the universities gave way under the pressure of mass movements, and did so in large measure because they thought those movements possessed a moral truth superior to any the university could provide. Commitment was understood to be profounder than science, passion than reason, history than nature, the young than the old.

Allan David Bloom

Those of you who go along to get along have no backbone and destroy the foundation of courage. You are the enablers of those who are guilty of misconduct. You are just as guilty as those who break the code of ethics and oath you swore.

Christopher Jordan Dorner

I lived a good life and though not a religious man I always stuck to my own personal code of ethics, ethos and always stuck to my shoreline and true North. I didnt need the US Navy to instill Honor, Courage, and Commitment in me but I thank them for re-enforcing it. Its in my DNA.

Christopher Jordan Dorner

I have the right to do whatever I wish with my property. If I own a pile of wood, I can set fire to it even if it is currently nailed together in the shape of a barn. Cigarettes may not be healthy for me in the long run, but I have the freedom to smoke them anyway. Drinking alcohol may or may not have negative side effects, but even if it does, the government has no authority to prohibit you from consuming it, even if it is "in your own best interest." Since when do we let the government decide what is or isn't good for us? What the hell does Congress know about nutrition, anyway? (For that matter, what does Congress know about the Constitution?) If the government can use force whenever something is "in our best interest" then government should force everyone to wake up at 6am every morning for calisthenics in the front yard. Fast food establishments should be torn down and replaced with bars that serve carrot juice and alfalfa sprouts, since - "it's in your best interest." This paternalistic attitude that "the government knows best" and that you are merely a helpless child is insulting and reprehensible. Hitler used the same attitude to persuade the Germans to subjugate themselves to the "Fatherland."

Michael J. Badnarik

Fear is the main factor in Arab politics... There is no Arab who is not harmed by Jews' entry into Palestine.

Moshe Sharett

In science, read, by preference the newest works; in literature, the oldest. The classics are always modern.

Edward George Earl Bulwer Lytton

Politics are usually the executive expression of human immaturity.

Vera Mary Brittain

A passion for politics stems usually from an insatiable need, either for power, or for friendship and adulation, or a combination of both.

Fawn McKay Brodie

Politics is history in the present tense.

John P. Avlon

There is nothing in the world more beautiful than the forest clothed to its very hollows in snow. It is the still ecstasy of nature, wherein every spray, every blade of grass, every spire of reed, every intricacy of twig, is clad with radiance.

William Sharp

The successor to politics will be propaganda. Propaganda, not in the sense of a message or ideology, but as the impact of the whole technology of the times.

Marshall Mcluhan

Where government is impossible, politics is impossible.

Sir Bernard Rowland Crick

Politics has rough manners, but it is a very useful thing.

Sir Bernard Rowland Crick

Design can be art. Design can be aesthetics. Design is so simple, that's why it is so complicated.

Paul Rand

Quantum physics is no longer an abstract theory for specialists. We must now absolutely include it in our education and also in our culture.

Statistics are no substitute for judgment.

Henry Clay
