Famous quotes containing the words positions and/or political:

    What arouses the indignation of the honest satirist is not, unless the man is a prig, the fact that people in positions of power or influence behave idiotically, or even that they behave wickedly. It is that they conspire successfully to impose upon the public a picture of themselves as so very sagacious, honest and well-intentioned.
    Claud Cockburn (1904–1981)

    The merely political aspect of the land is never very cheering; men are degraded when considered as the members of a political organization.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
