Politics Quotes

Your man with a thin skin, a vehement ambition, a scrupulous conscience, and a sanguine desire for rapid improvement, is never a happy, and seldom a fortunate politician. ~ The Prime Minister by Anthony Trollope Often I must speak other than I think. That is called diplomacy. ~ Dune Messiah by Frank Herbert The double pleasure of pulling down an opponent, and of raising oneself, is the charm of a politician's life. ~ Phineas Redux by Anthony Trollope A drunkard or a gambler may be weaned from his ways, but not a politician. ~ Phineas Redux by Anthony Trollope He, too, liked his party, and was fond of loyal men; but he had learned at last that all loyalty must be built on a basis of self-advantage. Patriotism may exist without it, but that which Erle called loyalty in politics was simply devotion to the side which a man conceives to be his side, and which he cannot leave without danger to himself. ~ Phineas Redux by Anthony Trollope It is the necessary nature of a political party in this country to avoid, as long as it can be avoided, the consideration of any question which involves a great change. ~ Phineas Redux by Anthony Trollope When a man gets into his head an idea that the public voice calls for him, it is astonishing how great becomes his trust in the wisdom of the public. ~ Framley Parsonage by Anthony Trollope "Kings have no friends," Stannis said bluntly, "only subjects and enemies." ~ A Clash of Kings by George R. R. Martin He was born to be a senator. He never said anything important, and he always said it sonorously. ~ Elmer Gantry by Sinclair Lewis "There is no gambling like politics." ~ Endymion by Benjamin Disraeli
