Politician quotes by Neale Donald Walsch
#1. I have not said your values are wrong. But neither are they right. They are simply judgments. Assessments. Decisions. For the most part, they are decisions made not by you, but by someone else. Your parents, perhaps. Your religion. Your teachers, historians, politicians. #Quote by Neale Donald Walsch
Politician quotes by DON SANTO
#2. An idle mind with enough time on their hands is far worse than a politician. #Quote by DON SANTO

Politician quotes by Erick Erickson
#5. At what point do the people tell the politicians to go to hell? At what point do they get off the couch, march down to their state legislator's house, pull him outside, and beat him to a bloody pulp for being an idiot? #Quote by Erick Erickson
Politician quotes by Argus Hamilton
#6. President Obama compared himself to Gandhi and Nelson Mandela in the struggle to bring about change. The comparison is flawed. They spent years in jail before taking political power, while politicians from Chicago do it the other way around. #Quote by Argus Hamilton

Politician quotes by Tom Coburn

Politician quotes by Diana Palmer
#9. She spotted Matt Holden and her eyes began to twinkle. He was a handsome devil, even at his age. His wife had died the year before, and the husky black-eyed politician with his glimmering silver hair and elegant broad-shouldered physique was now on every widow's list of eligible. Even now, two lovely elderly society dames were attacking from both sides with expensive perfume and daring cleavage. At least one of them should have worn something high-necked, she mused, with her collarbone and skinny neck so prominent.
Another pair of eyes followed her amused gaze. "Doesn't it remind you of shark attacks?" a pleasant voice murmured in her ear.
She jumped, and looked up at her companion for the evening. "Good grief, Colby, you scared me out of a year's growth!" she burst out with a helpless laugh. #Quote by Diana Palmer
Politician quotes by George Washington
#10. I shall never ask, never refuse, nor ever resign an office. #Quote by George Washington
Politician quotes by Helen McCloy
#11. That's the one thing a politician mustn't have - political opinions or principles. He can have prejudices - indeed he must have prejudices and share all the popular political superstitions of the moment as ardently as he can. But he must not have principles. He must never let the people suspect that they cannot eat their cake and have it. He must promise them a defense program and a higher standard of living. He must never use that dreadful little word or. #Quote by Helen McCloy
Politician quotes by Clint Eastwood
#12. I had three points I wanted to make: That not everybody in Hollywood is on the left, that Obama has broken a lot of the promises he made when he took office, and that the people should feel free to get rid of any politician who's not doing a good job. But I didn't make up my mind exactly what I was going to say until I said it. #Quote by Clint Eastwood
Politician quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#13. One of the lowest creatures on earth is the politician who tries to eliminate his political rivals using unlawful methods and even violence! To halt the march of such demonic people, never use the same immoral methods, because to defeat a poisonous snake you don't have to be a poisonous snake yourself! #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan
Politician quotes by Derek Cooper
#14. A newborn has more skills than does a politician. The infant babbles, burbles, cuddles, coos; the politician just babbles. #Quote by Derek Cooper
Politician quotes by Stephen Jay Gould
#15. Scientists have power by virtue of the respect commanded by the discipline ... We live with poets and politicians, preachers and philosophers. All have their ways of knowing, and all are valid in their proper domain. The world is too complex and interesting for one way to hold all the answers. #Quote by Stephen Jay Gould
Politician quotes by Nancy Pelosi
#16. The American people are very, very ready for a woman president. They're far ahead of the politicians. I always thought it would be much easier to elect a woman president of the United States than Speaker of the House, because the people are far ahead, as I say, of the electeds, on the subject of a woman being president. #Quote by Nancy Pelosi
Politician quotes by Elbert Hubbard
#17. There have always existed three ways of keeping the people loving and loyal. One is to leave them alone, to trust them and not to interfere. This plan, however, has very seldom been
practised, because the politicians regard the public as a cow to be milked, and something must be done to make it stand quiet. #Quote by Elbert Hubbard
Politician quotes by Karel Capek
#18. They all had a thousand good economic and political reasons why they couldn't stop. I'm not a politician or a businessman; how am I supposed to persuade them about these things. What are we supposed to do; quite likely the world will collapse and disappear under water; but at least that will happen for political and economic reasons we can all understand, at least it will happen with the help of science, technology and public opinion, with human ingenuity of all sorts! Not some cosmic catastrophe but just the same old reasons to do with the struggle for power and money and so on. There's nothing we can do about that. #Quote by Karel Capek
Politician quotes by Gloria Steinem
#19. If you're a woman, all they can think about your relationship with a politician is that you're either sleeping with him or advising him about clothes. #Quote by Gloria Steinem
Politician quotes by Lamine Pearlheart
#20. In a dictatorship, every election is faked and everybody seems to know it except for the dictator. In a democracy it is the politicians that are rigged. #Quote by Lamine Pearlheart
Politician quotes by John Oliver
#21. Politicians don't really bring up religion in England. #Quote by John Oliver
Politician quotes by Jarod Kintz
#22. Every politician has a promising career. Unfortunately, most of them do not keep those promises. #Quote by Jarod Kintz
Politician quotes by Cuba Gooding, Jr.
#23. I learned that not only am I a descendant of slaves, but that I am also a descendant of royalty, that there are politicians from the 1800s as well as Tuskegee Airmen in my lineage. #Quote by Cuba Gooding, Jr.
Politician quotes by Sam Branson
#24. My measure of success is to walk into a restaurant and hear a table debating drug policy. Once the public start the conversation, the politicians will join - that is when we can create real change. #Quote by Sam Branson
Politician quotes by H.G.Wells
#25. A shambling, hairy, brutish, but probably very cunning creature with a big brain behind; so someone, I think it was Sir Harry Johnston, has described Homo Neanderthalensis. To this day we must still use similar terms to describe the soul of the politician. The statesman has still to oust the politician from his lairs and weapon heaps. History has still to become a record of human dignity. Finance #Quote by H.G.Wells
Politician quotes by Frank McCourt
#26. In the high school classroom you are a drill sergent, a rabbi, a shoulder to cry on, a disciplinarian, a singer, a low-level scholar, a clerk, a referee, a clown, a counselor, a dress-code enforcer, a conductor, an apologist, a philosopher, a collaborator, a tap dancer, a politician, a therapist, a fool, a traffic cop, a priest, a mother-father-brother-sister-uncle-aunt, a bookeeper, a critic, a psychologist, the last straw. #Quote by Frank McCourt
Politician quotes by Charlie Chaplin
#27. I remain just one thing, and one thing only, and that is a clown. It places me on a far higher plane than any politician #Quote by Charlie Chaplin
Politician quotes by Tzipi Livni
#28. I believe that history is not made by cynics; it is made by realists who are not afraid to dream. Let us be these people. #Quote by Tzipi Livni
Politician quotes by Upton Sinclair
#29. If you wanted to understand a politician you mustn't pay too much attention to his speeches, but find out who were his paymasters. A politician couldn't rise in public life, in France any more than in America, unless he had the backing of big money, and it was in times of crisis like this that he paid his debts. X #Quote by Upton Sinclair
Politician quotes by Will Rogers
#30. There is no more independence in politics than there is in jail. #Quote by Will Rogers
Politician quotes by George Will
#31. When a politician says, concerning an issue involving science, that the debate is over, you may be sure the debate is rolling on and not going swimmingly for his side. #Quote by George Will
Politician quotes by Zadie Smith
#32. (and Catholics give out forgiveness at about the same rate as politicians give out promises and whores give out) #Quote by Zadie Smith
Politician quotes by Bennett Cerf
#33. Politicians are like ships: noisiest when lost in a fog. #Quote by Bennett Cerf
Politician quotes by Carl Hiaasen
#34. From my experience, politicians are much more uncomfortable being made fun of than they are being preached at and screeched at - you know, and the soapbox routine. They're much more uneasy knowing they're a target of ridicule. #Quote by Carl Hiaasen
Politician quotes by Tony Snow
#35. When politicians rush to fix things, it's a sure sign that either the intended patient is dead or fully healed. #Quote by Tony Snow
Politician quotes by Jay-Z
#36. Hip-hop has done so much for racial relations, and I don't think it's given the proper credit. It has changed America immensely. I'm going to make a very bold statement: Hip-hop has done more than any leader, politician, or anyone to improve race relations. #Quote by Jay-Z
Politician quotes by James Russell Lowell
#37. This imputation of inconsistency is one to which every sound politician and every honest thinker must sooner or later subject himself. The foolish and the dead alone never change their opinion. #Quote by James Russell Lowell
Politician quotes by Angela Merkel
#38. Politicians have to be committed to people in equal measures. #Quote by Angela Merkel
Politician quotes by Susanna Clarke
#39. Being a politician, he was never dissuaded from giving any body his opinion by the mere fact that they were not inclined to hear it. #Quote by Susanna Clarke
Politician quotes by John Bolton
#40. There is no patriotic obligation to help advance the career of a politician who is otherwise pursuing interests that are fundamentally antithetical to your values. That's not the call of patriotism. #Quote by John Bolton
Politician quotes by George Washington
#41. Being a politician makes your hair turn white. #Quote by George Washington
Politician quotes by Jiddu Krishnamurti
#42. It is important to understand, not intellectually but actually in your daily life, how you have built images about your wife, your husband, your neighbor, your child, your country, your leaders, your politicians, your gods-you have nothing but images. The images create the space between you and what you observe and in that space there is conflict, so what we are going to find out now together is whether it is possible to be free of the space we create, not only outside ourselves but in ourselves, the space which divides people in all their relationships ... #Quote by Jiddu Krishnamurti
Politician quotes by Tony Benn
#43. Five questions for politicians: 1. What power have you got? 2. Where did you get it from? 3. In whose interest do you exercise it? 4. To whom are you accountable? 5. How can we get rid of you? #Quote by Tony Benn
Politician quotes by Marco Rubio
#44. The president we have today is a typical Washington politician that's prone to hyperbole and decisiveness and false outrage. And I think it's very sad - very sad to watch. #Quote by Marco Rubio
Politician quotes by Eve Ensler
#45. I think we are seeing the absolute and utter collapse of male politicians in this [U.S] country and we're seeing what the underpinnings of the power structure are, which are sexist underpinnings. #Quote by Eve Ensler
Politician quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#46. In order to ensure proper progressive, non-prejudicial and non-barbarian functioning of a government, on top of the government hierarchy, in each nation, all political activities will be monitored and guided by a group of scholars, comprising scientists and philosophers. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Politician quotes by Charles De Lint
#47. As far as I'm concerned, the only difference between fact and what most people call fiction is about fifteen pages in the dictionary. #Quote by Charles De Lint
Politician quotes by H.G. Wells
#48. These politicians impressed him as being the most shortsighted and sceptical men he had ever met. They lived in a little world that was bounded on the one side by "office" and on the other by the constituencies, and they seemed unable to imagine that it was not an eternal world. One tall man, he observed, in the year of grace 1941 was wearing a long frock-coat and a peculiar half-stiff collar reminiscent of that great parliamentary hand, Mr. Gladstone. They talked with one another about divisions; the government majority had dropped to twenty; and they talked about a scene in the House. The P.M.'s manners were becoming intolerable. Then with an air of relaxation they turned to Rud. The possibility of altering opinions in the constituencies seemed a very theoretical one to them. No doubt there were these waves of opinion in the country, and an intelligent parliamentary politician observed them and dodged about among them, but it was quite outside their technique to consider how the pressures of opinion could accumulate and be directed. #Quote by H.G. Wells
Politician quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
#49. He couldn't tell the difference between one politician and another. They were all formlessly enthusiastic chimpanzees to him. #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut
Politician quotes by Flann O'Brien
#50. The majority of the members of the Irish parliament are professional politicians, in the sense that otherwise they would not be given jobs minding mice at crossroads. #Quote by Flann O'Brien
Politician quotes by Mao Zedong
#51. The question is not whether or not there should be a cult of the individual, but rather whether or not the individual concerned represents the truth, if he does then he should be worshiped. #Quote by Mao Zedong
Politician quotes by Ben Tolosa
#52. Vote; it's the most important right granted to you as a citizen. But unless you are a politician, stay out of politics because your gains will not change anything and your losses will only make you waste your time and many friendships. #Quote by Ben Tolosa
Politician quotes by Bob Dylan
#53. My favorite politician was Arizona Senator Barry Goldwater, who reminded me of Tom Mix, and there wasn't any way to explain that to anybody. #Quote by Bob Dylan
Politician quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#54. A politician plus zero is not equal to zero; it is something minus! #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan
Politician quotes by Hamilton Jordan
#55. To say that Jimmy Carter does not understand politics or is not a good politician denies the phenomenon by which he got to the White House. He is without question the best politician, when he's working at it, of anybody I have ever seen. #Quote by Hamilton Jordan
Politician quotes by William Shakespeare
#56. Why, look you, I am whipp'd and scourg'd with rods,
Nettled and stung with pismires[nettles], when I hear
Of this vile politician, Bolingbroke. #Quote by William Shakespeare
Politician quotes by Richard Hofstadter
#57. All this is the more maddening, as Edward Shils has pointed out, in a populistic culture which has always set a premium on government by the common man and through the common judgement and which believes deeply in the sacred character of publicity. Here the politician expresses what a large part of the public feels. The citizen cannot cease to need or to be at the mercy of experts, but he can achieve a kind of revenge by ridiculing the wild-eyed professor, the irresponsible brain truster, or the mad scientist, and by applauding the politicians as the pursue the subversive teacher, the suspect scientist, or the allegedly treacherous foreign-policy adviser. There has always been in our national experience a type of mind which elevates hatred to a kind of creed; for this mind, group hatreds take a place in politics similar to the class struggle in some other modern societies. Filled with obscure and ill-directed grievances and frustrations, with elaborate hallucinations about secrets and conspiracies, groups of malcontents have found scapegoats at various times in Masons or abolitionists, Catholics, Mormons, or Jews, Negroes, or immigrants, the liquor interests or the international bankers. In the succession of scapegoats chosen by the followers of this tradition of Know-Nothingism, the intelligentsia have at last in our time found a place. #Quote by Richard Hofstadter
Politician quotes by Winston Churchill
#58. We must beware of trying to build a society in which nobody counts for anything except a politician or an official, a society where enterprise gains no reward and thrift no privileges #Quote by Winston Churchill
Politician quotes by John Sutherland
#59. The American critic Dale Peck, author of Hatchet Jobs (2004), argues that reviewing finds its true character in critical GBH such as Fischer's [review of Martin Amis's Yellow Dog]. It represents a return to the prehistoric origins of reviewing in Zoilism - a kind of pelting of pretentious literature with dung, lest the writers get above themselves; it is to the novelist what the gown of humiliation was to the Roman politician - a salutary ordeal. Less grandly, bad reviews are fun, so long as you are not the author. There is, it must be admitted, a kind of furtive blood sport pleasure in seeing a novelist suffer. You read on. Whereas most of us stop reading at the first use of the word 'splendid' or 'marvellous' in a review. #Quote by John Sutherland
Politician quotes by Jonah Goldberg
#60. Whenever you hear a politician start a sentence with, "If we can put a man on the moon ... ," grab your wallet. #Quote by Jonah Goldberg
Politician quotes by Aravind Adiga
#61. An honest politician has no goodies to toss around. This limits his effectiveness profoundly, because political power in India is dispersed throughout a multi-tiered federal structure; a local official who has not been paid off can sometimes stop a billion-dollar project. #Quote by Aravind Adiga
Politician quotes by Thomas Sowell
#62. Lofty talk about 'social justice' or 'fairness' boils down to greatly expanded powers for politicians, since those pretty words have no concrete definition. They are a blank check for creating disparities in power that dwarf disparities in income - and are far more dangerous. #Quote by Thomas Sowell
Politician quotes by David Petraeus
#63. I am not a politician, and I will never be, and I say that with absolute conviction. #Quote by David Petraeus
Politician quotes by Tom Stoppard
#64. An artist is the magician put among men to gratify
capriciously
their urge for immortality. The temples are built and brought down around him, continuously and contiguously, from Troy to the fields of Flanders. If there is any meaning in any of it, it is in what survives as art, yes even in the celebration of tyrants, yes even in the celebration of nonentities. What now of the Trojan War if it had been passed over by the artist's touch? Dust. A forgotten expedition prompted by Greek merchants looking for new markets. A minor redistribution of broken pots. But it is we who stand enriched, by a tale of heroes, of a golden apple, a wooden horse, a face that launched a thousand ships
and above all, of Ulysses, the wanderer, the most human, the most complete of all heroes
husband, father, son, lover, farmer, soldier, pacifist, politician, inventor and adventurer ... #Quote by Tom Stoppard
Politician quotes by Jack Germond
#65. Politicians read the polls that show 85 or 90 percent of the voters profess a belief in God, so they identify themselves with religion, often only to the degree necessary to reach the constituency they are targeting. #Quote by Jack Germond
Politician quotes by Steven Pressfield
#66. The hack is like a politician who consults the polls before he takes a position. He's a demagogue. He panders. #Quote by Steven Pressfield
Politician quotes by Randall Jarrell
#67. If we meet an honest and intelligent politician, a dozen, a hundred, we say they aren't like politicians at all, and our category of politicians stays unchanged; we know what politicians are like. #Quote by Randall Jarrell
Politician quotes by Kate Atkinson
#68. He was born a politician.
No, Ursula thought, he was born a baby, like everyone else. And this is what he has chosen to become. #Quote by Kate Atkinson
Politician quotes by Nicholas Gane
#69. ... The form of leadership must be the focus of constant reappraisal. Weber states, for example: 'Each new fact may necessitate the re-adjustment of the relations between end and indispensable means, between desired goals and unavoidable subsidiary consequences.' This process of re-adjustment is ultimately without resolution, for the political and ethical value-spheres are not only in constant opposition but also in permanent flux. It is the task of the politician to negotiate this value conflict and to be decisive as to the value to be pursued and the means to be employed. #Quote by Nicholas Gane

Politician quotes by Dalia Mogahed
#71. Because people were attracted to him because he was not elected to an office. He was not a politician. And like you said before, he was a person that people say "Wow! He has the idea!" But the more and more you listen to Donald Trump, the more you have the sense that he is not the person that's going to run the country. And I have strong views. #Quote by Dalia Mogahed
Politician quotes by William Shakespeare
#72. Lear Act IV, Scene 6
Why dost thou lash that whore? Strip thy own back.
Thou hotly lusts to use her in that kind
For which thou whipp'st her. The usurer hangs the
cozener.
Through tottered rags small vices do appear;
Robes and furr'd gowns hide all. (Plate sin with gold,
And the strong lance of justice hurtless breaks;
Arm it in rags, a pigmy's straw does pierce it.
Lear Act IV, Scene 6
Get thee glass eyes;
And, like a scurvy politician, seem
To see the things thou dost not.
Lear Act IV, Scene 6 #Quote by William Shakespeare

Politician quotes by Michael Moriarty
#77. The biggest threat to any politician is an artist. Comedians unleashed can do a great deal of damage. David Letterman can do more damage than any Republican assault by Newt Gingrich. #Quote by Michael Moriarty

Politician quotes by Ta-Nehisi Coates
#80. The most powerful country in the world has handed over all of it's affairs, the prosperity of an entire economy, the security of some 300 million citizens, the purity of it's water, the viability of it's air, the safety of it's food, the future of it's vast system of education, the soundness of it's national highways, airways, and railways, the apocalyptic potential of nuclear arsenal to a carnival barker who introduce the phrase "grab em by the pussy", into the national lexicon. It is as if the white tribe united in demonstration to say "if a black man can be president than any white man, no matter how fallen, can be president", and in that perverse way, the democratic dreams of Jefferson and Jackson were fulfilled. The American Tragedy now being wrought, is larger than most imaged and will not end with Trump. In recent times, whiteness as an overt political tactic has been restrained by a kind of cordiality held that it's overt invocation would scare off moderate whites. This has proved to be only half-true at best. Trump's legacy will be exposing the patina of decency for what it is and revealing just how much a demagague can get away with. It does not take much to imagine another politician, wiser in the ways of Washington, schooled in the methodology of governance, now liberated from the pretense of anti-racist civility, doing a much more effective job than Trump. #Quote by Ta-Nehisi Coates
Politician quotes by Michael Kinsley
#81. A gaffe is when a politician tells the truth. #Quote by Michael Kinsley
Politician quotes by Jamie Dimon
#82. Look, in any system, you want highly ethical people who really understand issues to form policies and make tough decisions. You need all the right people in the room. But there's a general view in Washington now by many politicians that if you ever were on this side, you're conflicted for being on that side. #Quote by Jamie Dimon
Politician quotes by F. Sionil Jose
#83. I believe in humanity - not just you or Mother, but all mankind. Do I sound like a preacher or a cheap politician making a pretty speech? This is not what I intend to do ...
I believe in life, that it is sweet and that, for all its occasional bitterness, we-man, that is-are headed toward something better - fulfillment. There is much shame, however, and so much hypocrisy around us and these inhibit our fulfillment as human beings. #Quote by F. Sionil Jose
Politician quotes by Frank Dane
#84. The news of any politician's death should be listed under 'Public Improvements.' #Quote by Frank Dane
Politician quotes by Peggy Noonan
#85. Politicians, please, think of yourselves! Move to help Terri Schiavo, and no one will be mad at you, and you'll keep a human being alive. #Quote by Peggy Noonan
Politician quotes by Jerome Liebling
#86. My photographs tried to find the politicians at their most wary, most vulnerable, and perhaps most truthful moments. I wanted the photographs to reveal the person through stance and stare, when he or she was most reflective or off guard, in order to measure the person and event unfolding. #Quote by Jerome Liebling
Politician quotes by Meg Greenfield
#87. Everyone seems to be running against a liar, but nobody seems to be one. Odd - I mean, the math doesn't work out. #Quote by Meg Greenfield
Politician quotes by Michael Scheuer
#88. We [Americans] continue to be harangued by politicians about how Americans must fight this war because we're being attacked because we have freedoms and liberties and women in the workplace and a whole list of ephemera that have nothing to do with this war at all. #Quote by Michael Scheuer
Politician quotes by Ron Paul
#89. Speak up, speak often and don't worry about those that at this point cannot understand as they can never un-hear what we tell them. #Quote by Ron Paul
Politician quotes by Mathieu Kassovitz
#90. I'm not a politician; I'm lucky to be a filmmaker and to be able to express myself through the films I make. #Quote by Mathieu Kassovitz
Politician quotes by Zaha Hadid
#91. My father was a politician, and a very important politician, and one of the leaders of the Iraqi Democratic Party, who believed in progress. #Quote by Zaha Hadid
Politician quotes by Rupert Murdoch
#92. As with all politically lead governments, foreign investment is the slowest in the media section. Politicians are somewhat paranoid about the media but we still think it's worthwhile. #Quote by Rupert Murdoch
Politician quotes by Frank Rich
#93. It is kind of tedious after a while, to parse politicians doing the same thing over and over again. The facts change from week to week, but the sort of masquerade doesn't. #Quote by Frank Rich
Politician quotes by A.J. Liebling
#94. A Louisiana politician can't afford to let his animosities carry him away, and still less his principles, although there is seldom difficulty in that department. #Quote by A.J. Liebling
Politician quotes by Thomas Sowell
#95. Racism is not dead, but it is on life support
kept alive by politicians, race hustlers and people who get a sense of superiority by denouncing others as 'racists' #Quote by Thomas Sowell

#96. There are some politicians who, if their constituents were cannibals, would promise them missionaries in every pot. #Quote by H.L. Mencken
Politician quotes by Ben Shapiro
#97. Primarily affecting low-information voters and members of the mainstream media, Obama Worship Syndrome attributes impossible capabilities to Obama's political opponents, finds excuses for every Obama failure in everyone around him and praises the president as the finest politician - nay, human being - of our time. #Quote by Ben Shapiro
Politician quotes by Dick Morris
#98. The most basic decision a modern politician must make is whether to be aggressive or conciliatory. #Quote by Dick Morris
Politician quotes by Elon Musk
#99. I think there are more politicians in favor of electric cars than against. There are still some that are against, and I think the reasoning for that varies depending on the person, but in some cases, they just don't believe in climate change - they think oil will last forever. #Quote by Elon Musk
Politician quotes by Madeleine M. Kunin
#100. It is the future, of course, which politicians grapple with, and that is why politics is so disorderly. Only history clears away some of the debris. #Quote by Madeleine M. Kunin
Politician quotes by Joseph Brodsky
#101. By failing to read or listen to poets, society dooms itself to inferior modes of articulation, those of the politician, the salesman, or the charlatan. In other words, it forfeits its own evolutionary potential. For what distinguishes us from the rest of the animal kingdom is precisely the gift of speech. Poetry is not a form of entertainment and in a certain sense not even a form of art, but it is our anthropological, genetic goal. Our evolutionary, linguistic beacon. #Quote by Joseph Brodsky
Politician quotes by Bob Beckel
#102. Asking politicians to vote themselves out of power is like asking rabbits not to multiply, it ain't natural. #Quote by Bob Beckel
Politician quotes by Raymond Bonner
#103. The Philippines is a country in which a man of morals can't be president, in which a politician who hasn't been linked to any wrongdoing isn't assumed to be honest, but merely better at hiding his corruption. #Quote by Raymond Bonner
Politician quotes by Craig Ferguson
#104. I have a deep and profound mistrust of all politicians. #Quote by Craig Ferguson
Politician quotes by Pyotr Kropotkin
#105. Of course the no-government ethics will meet with at least as many objections as the no-capital economics. Our minds have been so nurtured in prejudices as to the providential functions of government that anarchist ideas must be received with distrust. Our whole education, from childhood to the grave, nurtures the belief in the necessity of a government and its beneficial effects. Systems of philosophy have been elaborated to support this view; history has been written from this standpoint; theories of law have been circulated and taught for the same purpose. All politics are based on the same principle, each politician saying to people he wants to support him: "Give me the governmental power; I will, I can, relieve you from the hardships of your present life." All our education is permeated with the same teachings. We may open any book of sociology, history, law, or ethics: everywhere we find government, its organisation, its deeds, playing so prominent a part that we grow accustomed to suppose that the State and the political men are everything; that there is nothing behind the big statesmen. The same teachings are daily repeated in the Press. Whole columns are filled up with minutest records of parliamentary debates, of movements of political persons. And, while reading these columns, we too often forget that besides those few men whose importance has been so swollen up as to overshadow humanity, there is an immense body of men - mankind, in fact - growing and dying, livin #Quote by Pyotr Kropotkin
Politician quotes by Kim Harrison
#106. Rynn Cormel had run the world during the Turn, his living charisma somehow crossing the boundaries of death to give his undead existence an uncanny mimicry of life. Every move was a careful study of causality. It was highly unusual for so young an undead vampire to be so good at mimicking having a soul. I figured it was because he was a politician and had had practice way before he died. #Quote by Kim Harrison
Politician quotes by John Taylor Gatto
#107. As a writer, politician, scientist, and businessman, [Ben] Franklin had few equals among the educated of his day-though he left school at ten. ( ... )Boys like Andrew Carnegie who begged his mother not to send him to school and was well on his way to immortality and fortune at the age of thirteen, would be referred today for psychological counseling; Thomas Edison would find himself in Special Ed until his peculiar genius had been sufficiently tamed. #Quote by John Taylor Gatto
Politician quotes by Iain Duncan Smith
#108. Over the years the political establishment has frowned if a mainstream politician mentions marriage. #Quote by Iain Duncan Smith
Politician quotes by Roseanne Barr

Politician quotes by Carl R White
#110. I could never be a politician, I have a problem of too often being honest. #Quote by Carl R White
Politician quotes by Guy Endore
#111. A real politician, and these were real politicians, never betrays his country to an outsider. He betrays it to himself. He is the enemy within. #Quote by Guy Endore
Politician quotes by Aung San Suu Kyi
#112. I think I should be active politically. Because I look upon myself as a politician. That's not a dirty work you know. Some people think that there are something wrong with politicians. Of course, something wrong with some politicians. #Quote by Aung San Suu Kyi
Politician quotes by Auliq Ice
#113. Every politician brings in a wide range of context, promises and characters to bring his mission of you to listen to his words and vote for him and later he won't listen to you at any range. #Quote by Auliq Ice
Politician quotes by Tom L. Johnson
#114. Public schools are government-established, politician- and bureaucrat-controlled, fully politicized, taxpayer-supported, authoritarian socialist institutions. In fact, the public-school system is one of the purest examples of socialism existing in America. #Quote by Tom L. Johnson
Politician quotes by Khem Veasna
#115. It is a real tragedy for a nation when three groups of it's people, namely politicians, religious leaders and charity workes, just pretend to be generous. #Quote by Khem Veasna
Politician quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#116. If your spouse gets sick, who would you visit - your non-doctor neighbor or an actual doctor! Any sane person would visit a doctor over a non-doctor neighbor, even if that neighbor happens to be a celebrity, because it is common knowledge that fame or charisma is not equivalent to medical expertise, yet when it comes to choosing a doctor to treat the sickness of a nation, the masses most proudly elect any charismatic chimpanzee over a humble, wise and conscientious leader. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Politician quotes by Neal Boortz

Politician quotes by David Trimble
#118. Circumstances give in reality to every political principle, its distinguishing colour, and discriminating effect. The circumstances are what render every civil and political scheme beneficial or noxious to mankind. #Quote by David Trimble
Politician quotes by George Will
#119. Politics in a democracy is transactional: Politicians seek votes by promising to do things for voters, who seek promises in exchange for their votes. #Quote by George Will
Politician quotes by Mark Hitchcock
#120. Satan loves politics. He is the greatest politician of all time. He politicked in heaven and convinced a third of the angels to join his rebellious political party. #Quote by Mark Hitchcock

Politician quotes by Preston Sturges
#122. THE POLITICIAN
If it wasn't for graft, you'd get a very low type of people in politics. Men without ambition. Jellyfish!
CATHERINE
Especially since you can't rob the people anyway.
THE POLITICIAN
Sure ... How was that?
CATHERINE
What you rob, you spend. And what you spend goes back to the people. So where's the robbery? I read that in one of my father's books.
THE POLITICIAN
That book should be in every home! #Quote by Preston Sturges
Politician quotes by Gail Collins
#123. There have been tons of politicians who were slow to accept equal rights when it meant changes in the established social order. Many eventually came around, admitted they were wrong, and were forgiven. But the ones who actively choose hate-mongering don't ever get a pass. #Quote by Gail Collins

Politician quotes by John Yarmuth
#126. I know that in the battle of ideas, Republican politicians are at a distinct disadvantage. Their fundamental philosophy - which I characterize as survival of the fittest, richest and whitest - is too callous for most Americans. #Quote by John Yarmuth
Politician quotes by Pauline Hanson
#127. If politicians continue to promote separatism in Australia, they should not continue to hold their seats in this parliament. They are not truly representing all Australians, and I call on the people to throw them out. #Quote by Pauline Hanson
Politician quotes by Paul Theroux
#128. In countries where all the crooked politicians wear pin-striped suits, the best people are bare-assed. #Quote by Paul Theroux
Politician quotes by Edward R. Murrow
#129. The politician is ... trained in the art of inexactitude. His words tend to be blunt or rounded, because if they have a cutting edge they may later return to wound him. #Quote by Edward R. Murrow
Politician quotes by John McCain
#130. I don't know a politician who enjoys fundraising. The system is such that the American people have lost faith. #Quote by John McCain
Politician quotes by Don Fulsom
#131. If you were Meyer, who would you invest your money in? Some politician named Clams Linguini? Or a nice Protestant boy from Whittier, California? #Quote by Don Fulsom
Politician quotes by Andrea Dworkin
#132. A man can be a hero if he is a scientist, or a soldier, or a drug addict, or a disc jockey, or a crummy mediocre politician. A man can be a hero because he suffers and despairs; or because he thinks logically and analytically; or because he is sensitive; or because he is cruel. Wealth establishes a man as a hero, and so does poverty. Virtually any circumstance in a man's life will make him a hero to some group of people and has a mythic rendering in the culture
in literature, art, theater, or the daily newspapers. #Quote by Andrea Dworkin
Politician quotes by Preneet Kaur
#133. Women politicians take their job seriously and accomplish their duties diligently and sensitively. Only they can understand the problems of women and act as a sounding board for their concerns. #Quote by Preneet Kaur
Politician quotes by Joe Manchin
#134. We shouldn't accept mediocrity as the best a politician can do. #Quote by Joe Manchin
Politician quotes by Helen Gurley Brown
#135. I care. I care a lot. I think of Cosmopolitan all day, and I run scared. So it's a combination of fright, caring and anxiety. #Quote by Helen Gurley Brown
Politician quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#136. There are men who desire power simply for the sake of the happiness it will bring; these belong chiefly to political parties. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Politician quotes by Adam Giles
#137. I have never declared myself an Indigenous politician; I am not an Indigenous Chief Minister. #Quote by Adam Giles
Politician quotes by Lyn Nofziger
#138. Several things about Reagan are unusual in a public man. He was not a typical politician at all, but a private man in public life. #Quote by Lyn Nofziger
Politician quotes by Peter F. Hamilton
#139. Most people who have failed miserably in life itself have one last resort left available to them, they become a politician. #Quote by Peter F. Hamilton
Politician quotes by George McGovern
#140. Somehow politicians have become convinced that negative campaigning pays off in elections. #Quote by George McGovern
Politician quotes by Harold Macmillan
#141. At home, you always have to be a politician; when you're abroad, you almost feel yourself a statesman. #Quote by Harold Macmillan
Politician quotes by H.L. Mencken
#142. A professional politician is a professionally dishonorable man. In order to get anywhere near high office he has to make so many compromises and submit to so many humiliations that he becomes indistinguishable from a streetwalker. #Quote by H.L. Mencken
Politician quotes by Carly Fiorina
#143. I think more to the point, these pivotal times means something other than a politician. I understand the economy. I understand the world. I have a lot of foreign policy experience. I understand bureaucracies. I understand technology, and I understand leadership. #Quote by Carly Fiorina
Politician quotes by Pope Benedict XVI
#144. When politicians presume to do God's work, they do not become divine but diabolical. #Quote by Pope Benedict XVI
Politician quotes by Jarod Kintz
#145. When I hear a politician has died in a car accident, I think, "How tragic! Even if the car suffered only a small dent, it makes me want to cry out to God in despair. #Quote by Jarod Kintz
Politician quotes by David Hare
#146. I'm tired of these sophistries. I'm tired of these right-wing fuckers. They wouldn't lift a finger themselves. They work contentedly in offices and banks. Yet now they sit pontificating in parliament, in papers, impugning our motives, questioning our judgements. And why? Because they themselves need to feel better by putting down everyone whose work is so much harder than theirs. You only have to say the words 'social worker'…'probation officer' … 'counsellor' … for everyone in this country to sneer. Do you know what social workers do? Every day? They try and clear out society's drains. They clear out the rubbish. They do what no one else is doing, what no one else is willing to do. And for that, oh Christ, do we thank them? No, we take our own rotten consciences, wipe them all over the social worker's face, and say 'if…' FUCK! 'if I did the job, then of course if I did it…oh no, excuse me, I wouldn't do it like that…' Well I say: 'OK, then, fucking do it, journalist. Politician, talk to the addicts. Hold families together. Stop the kids from stealing in the streets. Deal with couples who beat each other up. You fucking try it, why not? Since you're so full of advice. Sure, come and join us. This work is one big casino. By all means. Anyone can play. But there's only one rule. You can't play for nothing. You have to buy some chips to sit at the table. And if you won't pay with your own time…with your own effort…then I'm sorry. Fuck
off! #Quote by David Hare
Politician quotes by Clint Eastwood
#147. I just think it is important that you realize, that you're the best in the world. Whether you are a Democrat or Republican or whether you're libertarian or whatever, you are the best. And we should not ever forget that. And when somebody does not do the job, we got to let them go. #Quote by Clint Eastwood
Politician quotes by Ta-Nehisi Coates
#148. The fear had precedent. Toward the end of the Civil War, having witnessed the effectiveness of the Union's 'colored troops,' a flailing Confederacy began considering an attempt to recruit blacks into its army. But in the nineteenth century, the idea of the soldier was heavily entwined with the notion of masculinity and citizenship. How could an army constituted to defend slavery, with all of its assumptions about black inferiority, turn around and declare that blacks were worthy of being invited into Confederate ranks? As it happened, they could not. 'The day you make a soldier of them is the beginning of the end of our revolution,' observed Georgia politician Howell Cobb. 'And if slaves seem good soldiers, then our whole theory of slavery is wrong.' There could be no win for white supremacy here. If blacks proved to be the cowards that 'the whole theory of slavery' painted them as, the battle would be lost. But much worse, should they fight effectively--and prove themselves capable of 'good Negro government'--then the larger war could never be won. #Quote by Ta-Nehisi Coates
Politician quotes by Carl Sagan
#149. Consider again that dot [Earth]. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there - on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam. #Quote by Carl Sagan
Politician quotes by Thich Nhat Hanh
#150. If you're a politician, you might want to learn the Buddhist way of negotiation. Restoring communication and bringing back reconciliation is clear and concrete in Buddhism. #Quote by Thich Nhat Hanh
Politician quotes by Ernest Hemingway,
#151. He smiled as only the truly shy can smile. It was not the easy grin of the confident, nor the quick slashing smile of the extremely durable and the wicked. It had no relation with the poised, intently used smile of the courtesan or the politician. It was the strange, rare smile which rises from the deep, dark pit, deeper than a well, deep as a mine, that is within them. #Quote by Ernest Hemingway,
Politician quotes by Tariq Ramadan
#152. I had no intention to cover my tracks since I am not a politician and I do not represent anybody. #Quote by Tariq Ramadan
Politician quotes by Shirley Chisholm
#153. My greatest political asset, which professional politicians fear, is my mouth, out of which come all kinds of things one shouldn't always discuss for reasons of political expediency, #Quote by Shirley Chisholm
Politician quotes by Henry Fielding
#154. The greatest part of mankind labor under one delirium or another; and Don Quixote differed from the rest, not in madness, but the species of it. The covetous, the prodigal, the superstitious, the libertine, and the coffee-house politician, are all Quixotes in their several ways. #Quote by Henry Fielding
Politician quotes by Simon Doonan
#155. I don't want a politician who's thinking about fashion for even one millisecond. It's the same as medical professionals. The idea of a person in a Comme des Garcons humpback dress giving me a colonoscopy is just not groovy. #Quote by Simon Doonan
Politician quotes by John Stossel
#156. If government were less important in our lives, politicians would have fewer goodies to trade. In return, we'd have more money and more freedom. #Quote by John Stossel

#157. I don't usually make political comments, because I am a businessman, not a politician. #Quote by John Gokongwei

Politician quotes by Joy-Ann Reid
#160. Having lived in Florida for as long as you did as well, Jeb Bush has never really been that great of a politician. He's benefited from a lot of good luck.He torched his own campaign in '94, he had a weak Democratic opponent in '98, he benefited from the Clinton boom and got out before the Bush bust. #Quote by Joy-Ann Reid

Politician quotes by Jim Cooper
#164. Politicians are terrified of losing touch with folks back home but content to be clueless about government's failure to fix real problems. #Quote by Jim Cooper
Politician quotes by Yoko Ono
#165. In the '60s we fought for peace, when the Vietnam war was on. We were against the cops and against the politicians, and there was a lot of waving banners and all that. And I think in a way, just as they were enjoying that machoism of war, we were enjoying the machismo of being anti-war, you know? #Quote by Yoko Ono
Politician quotes by Thomas Carlyle
#166. Little other than a red tape Talking-machine, and unhappy Bag of Parliamentary Eloquence. #Quote by Thomas Carlyle
Politician quotes by Tulip Siddiq
#167. As politicians we have to make very difficult decisions and one ... is when freedom of speech actually insults public safety. #Quote by Tulip Siddiq
Politician quotes by Walter Lippmann
#168. The ordinary politician has a very low estimate of human nature. In his daily life he comes into contact chiefly with persons who want to get something or to avoid something. Beyond this circle of seekers after privileges, individuals and organized minorities, he is aware of a large unorganized, indifferent mass of citizens who ask nothing in particular and rarely complain. The politician comes after a while to think that the art of politics is to satisfy the seekers after favors and to mollify the inchoate mass with noble sentiments and patriotic phrases. #Quote by Walter Lippmann
Politician quotes by Nicolle Wallace
#169. So to Hillary Clinton, Liz Cheney, Christine Quinn, Susana Martinez, Meg Whitman, Sheryl Sandberg, Carly Fiorina and every other woman out there who has ever felt more like a professional juggler than a politician, you are our best hope! Run sister, run. #Quote by Nicolle Wallace
Politician quotes by Gracie Allen

Politician quotes by Jim Webb
#172. I have proudly spent several periods in government, but I'm not a career politician. I come from a family of 'citizen soldiers.' #Quote by Jim Webb
Politician quotes by Radley Balko
#173. Police officers today are a protected class, one no politician wants to oppose. Law enforcement interests may occasionally come up short on budgetary issues, but legislatures rarely if ever pass new laws to hold police more accountable, to restrict their powers, or to make them more transparent. In short, police today embody all of the threats the Founders feared were posed by standing armies, plus a few additional ones they couldn't have anticipated. #Quote by Radley Balko
Politician quotes by Muhammad Ali
#174. Politicians are always saying that they are in support of Iraqi citizens and now they are increasing the price of petrol. We were oppressed for 35 years. We are like a sick patient who is in need of care, and they are increasing prices #Quote by Muhammad Ali
Politician quotes by Christine O'Donnell
#175. It's time to replace career politicians with citizen's politicians. It's time to elect people who are going to stand up to the Washington elite and stand up to a White House and Congress hell-bent on ramming socialism down our throat. #Quote by Christine O'Donnell
Politician quotes by Timothy Leary
#176. Psychedelic drugs cause paranoia, confusion, and total loss of reality in politicians that have never taken them. #Quote by Timothy Leary
Politician quotes by Frederick Scott Oliver
#177. In taking stock of a politician, the first question is not whether he was a good man who used righteous means, but whether he was successful in gaining power, in keeping it, and in governing; whether, in short, he was skilful at his particular craft or a bungler. #Quote by Frederick Scott Oliver
Politician quotes by John Adams
#178. In politics the middle way is none at all. #Quote by John Adams
Politician quotes by Margaret Thatcher

Politician quotes by Edmund Burke
#180. A man full of warm, speculative benevolence may wish his society otherwise constituted than he finds it; but a good patriot, and a true politician, always considers how he shall make the most of the existing materials of his country. #Quote by Edmund Burke
Politician quotes by Jan Reid
#181. In a state that continued to be saddled with a sternly limited governmental structure devised when the South was just emerging from the bruising experience of the Civil War and Reconstruction, she also had to contend with fact that national politics and changing demographics had left her swimming for her life as a liberal Democrat in an ocean of conservative Republicans. In a failed presidential campaign, Texas's Republican senator Phil Gramm once boasted that the best thing a politician can have is money. It helps, of course, and yet he was proved quite wrong: the biggest advantage a politician can have is that people like you. #Quote by Jan Reid
Politician quotes by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
#182. 98% of politicians are either corrupt or corruptible. #Quote by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
Politician quotes by David Rosenfelt
#183. The Los Angeles parade would begin in Griffith Park, where a large crowd would assemble and the speeches would be given. Every politician of consequence would be there. There was no way they would miss a chance to publicly praise the troops and honor those who had lost their lives in service.
Some of the tributes would be sincere and heartfelt, and some less so. But participating in the event, vowing undying support for the U.S. military, was an absolute must to maintain political viability. It was okay to vote to cut funds for veterans' healthcare, but don't dare miss a chance to jump on the Memorial Day bandwagon. #Quote by David Rosenfelt
Politician quotes by Reese Witherspoon
#184. I'm not a politician, She says evenly. If I want to be one, I'll run for office. Susan Sarandon, whom I know and love, is a fantastic actress. It's her right as an American to say whatever she wants. [But] just because you're rich and famous doesn't qualify you to make political statements. I don't put my opinions out there to influence people. You have alot of influence. And sometimes I feel it's undeserved influence. #Quote by Reese Witherspoon
Politician quotes by Pearl Mary Teresa Craigie
#185. A statesman's words, like butcher's meat, should be well weighed. #Quote by Pearl Mary Teresa Craigie
Politician quotes by Willie Nelson
#186. Rather than trying to put an end to Eminem or some other rapper, politicians should think about why they're rapping. It's easier to try to censor some kid who's swearing about poverty than it is to stop the poverty. #Quote by Willie Nelson
Politician quotes by Simon Cameron PA

Politician quotes by George H. W. Bush
#188. The anchor in our world today is freedom, holding us steady in times of change, a symbol of hope to all the world. #Quote by George H. W. Bush
Politician quotes by Bill Maher
#189. New Rule: Conservatives have to stop rolling their eyes every time they hear the word "France." Like just calling something French is the ultimate argument winner. As if to say, "What can you say about a country that was too stupid to get on board with our wonderfully conceived and brilliantly executed war in Iraq?" And yet an American politician could not survive if he uttered the simple, true statement: "France has a better health-care system than we do, and we should steal it." Because here, simply dismissing an idea as French passes for an argument. John Kerry? Couldn't vote for him--he looked French. Yeah, as a opposed to the other guy, who just looked stupid.

Last week, France had an election, and people over there approach an election differently. They vote. Eighty-five percent turned out. You couldn't get eighty-five percent of Americans to get off the couch if there was an election between tits and bigger tits and they were giving out free samples.

Maybe the high turnout has something to do with the fact that the French candidates are never asked where they stand on evolution, prayer in school, abortion, stem cell research, or gay marriage. And if the candidate knows about a character in a book other than Jesus, it's not a drawback. The electorate doesn't vote for the guy they want to have a croissant with. Nor do they care about private lives. In the current race, Madame Royal has four kids, but she never got married. And she's a socialist. In #Quote by Bill Maher

Politician quotes by Theodore Dalrymple
#194. There is nothing that an intellectual less likes to change than his mind, or a politician his policy. #Quote by Theodore Dalrymple
Politician quotes by Ibram X. Kendi
#195. When we fail to open the closed-minded consumers of racist ideas, we blame their closed-mindedness instead of our foolish decision to waste time reviving closed minds from the dead. When our vicious attacks on open-minded consumers of racist ideas fail to transform them, we blame their hate rather than our impatient and alienating hate of them. When people fail to consume our convoluted antiracist ideas, we blame their stupidity rather than our stupid lack of clarity. When we transform people and do not show them an avenue of support, we blame their lack of commitment rather than our lack of guidance. When the politician we supported does not change racist policy, we blame the intractability of racism rather than our support of the wrong politician. When we fail to gain support for a protest, we blame the fearful rather than our alienating presentation. When the protest fails, we blame racist power rather than our flawed protest. When our policy does not produce racial equity, we blame the people for not taking advantage of the new opportunity, not our flawed policy solution. The failure doctrine avoids the mirror of self-blame. The failure doctrine begets failure. The failure doctrine begets racism. #Quote by Ibram X. Kendi
Politician quotes by Storm Jameson
#196. A politician is forced to make a habit of noble phrases and optimistic lies. In the end they infect himself. #Quote by Storm Jameson
Politician quotes by Jeff Ferry
#197. Karl stood up and pointed at the large portraits on the wall. He swept the room from George Washington to Ben Franklin to John Adams to Thomas Jefferson. "Soldier, Printer, Lawyer, Scholar. You become a politician because the people make you one, not because you desire to be one. #Quote by Jeff Ferry
Politician quotes by Robert Higgs
#198. But politicians who talk about failed policies are just blowing smoke. Government policies succeed in doing exactly what they are supposed to do: channeling resources bilked from the general public to politically organized and influential interests groups. #Quote by Robert Higgs
Politician quotes by Angelique Kidjo
#199. Education is not something that the government invests in. Because if you invest in education, no politician can come and tell you something that doesn't make sense. #Quote by Angelique Kidjo
Politician quotes by Thomas Sowell
#200. Someone once said that taxes are the price we pay for civilization. That may have been true when he said it, but today taxes are mostly the price we pay so that politicians can play Santa Claus and get reelected. #Quote by Thomas Sowell
