Politics Detest 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

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

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

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

Moshe Sharett

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

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

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

Howarth began to see that, however much it was against ones will and convictions, sides had to be taken, the dreary corrupt world of politics had to be entered by the good and dispassionate, to protect and avenge the weak. But one always entered too late.

Anthony Burgess

Politics these days is a disgusting game of mud-slinging, filled with selfish people with selfish aims. I'm very glad I've retired away from the hustle and bustle of Whitehall.

Dr Munir Butt

The practical politics of all the philosophers, no matter how-great their theoretical differences, were the same. They practiced an art of writing that appealed to the prevailing moral taste of the regime in which they found themselves, but which could lead some astute readers outside of it to the Elysian Fields where the philosophers meet to talk.

Allan David Bloom

In war, you can only be killed once, but in politics, many times.

Winston Churchill

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

Will Rogers

In politics... never retreat, never retract... never admit a mistake.

Napoleon Bonaparte

One of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors.

Plato

Politics is not a game. It is an earnest business.

Winston Churchill

The Roots of Violence: Wealth without work, Pleasure without conscience, Knowledge without character, Commerce without morality, Science without humanity, Worship without sacrifice, Politics without principles.

Mahatma Gandhi

In almost every act of our lives, whether in the sphere of politics or business, in our social conduct or our ethical thinking, we are dominated by the relatively small number of persons [...] who understand the mental processes and social patterns of the masses. It is they who pull the wires that control the public mind, who harness old social forces and contrive new ways to bind and guide the world.

Edward Bernays

Politics is a lot like sex - if you want something, you have to ask for it, if theyre not doing it right youve got to speak up and show them and if you still dont get what you want, then there is nothing wrong with doing it yourself.

Jennifer Beals

The extreme form of this expropriation of the Common is the spectacle, that is, the politics we live in.

Giorgio Agamben

It is not only the political unacceptability of Israel's Occupation which makes the call for sanction urgent and obligatory, it is the massive violations of Palestinian human rights, of international law and of numerous UN resolutions that the Occupation entails. If Israel as the Occupying Power is not held accountable for the intolerable situation within its ability, indeed, within its responsibility to end, the entire international system of justice is rendered meaningless and empty. And that is what makes the Occupation an international issue. If Israel succeeds in defying the Fourth Geneva Convention and making its Occupation permanent, if an entire population is literally locked behind walls and its right of self-determination trampled, then the ability of human rights to win out over an international order founded on power politics and militarism is jeopardized. We all have a stake in ending the Occupation.
