Politics Quotes

from thousands of famous people

The Whole Aim Of Practical Politics Is To Keep The Populace In A Continual State Of Alarm And Hence Clamorous To Be Led To Safety By Menacing Them With An Endless Series Of Hobgoblins, All Of Them Imaginary.
~ H. L. Mencken
To Bemoan The Messiness Of Politics Is Not Just A Folly It Betrays A Dangerous Impatience With Basic Realities. It Is Like Becoming Disturbed That People Do Not Fall In Love Sensibly -- And So Deciding To Computerize The Problem.
~ Theodore Roszak
For The Ordinary Man Is Passive. Within A Narrow Circle Home Life, And Perhaps The Trade Unions Or Local Politics He Feels Himself Master Of His Fate, But Against Major Events He Is As Helpless As Against The Elements. So Far From Endeavouring To Influence The Future, He Simply Lies Down And Lets Things Happen To Him.
~ George Orwell
What Is Politics But Persuading The Public To Vote For This And Support That And Endure These For The Promise Of Those.
~ Gilbert Highet
Nothing Is So Admirable In Politics As A Short Memory.
~ John Kenneth Galbraith
