Politicians Quotes

With the over-population and inflation and starvation and the crazy politicians, I don't feel safe in this world no more.

The Kinks

Politicians of all stripes are always in danger at looking at every problem from an abstract point of view or being briefed by officials, academics, or economists who know every science but the science of human nature.

Joseph Jacques Jean Chrtien

Whether we and our politicians know it or not, Nature is party to all our deals and decisions, and she has more votes, a longer memory, and a sterner sense of justice than we do.

George Will

Many politicians are in the habit of laying it down as a self-evident proposition that no people ought to be free till they are fit to use their freedom. The maxim is worthy of the fool in the old story who resolved not to go into the water till he had learned to swim.

Thomas B. Macaulay

I can't stand politicians who wear God on their sleeves.
