Office Politics Quotes

There are no true friends in politics.

Marcus Tullius Cicero

HELEN DENDY BOSANQUET

A cool blooded and crafty politician, when he would be thoroughly revenged on his enemy, makes the injuries which have been inflicted, not on himself, but on others, the pretext of his attack.
