Famous quotes containing the words occupation, political, presidents and/or prior:

    The science, the art, the jurisprudence, the chief political and social theories, of the modern world have grown out of Greece and Rome—not by favor of, but in the teeth of, the fundamental teachings of early Christianity, to which science, art, and any serious occupation with the things of this world were alike despicable.
    Thomas Henry Huxley (1825–95)

    Wherever the relevance of speech is at stake, matters become political by definition, for speech is what makes man a political being.
    Hannah Arendt (1906–1975)

    All Presidents start out to run a crusade but after a couple of years they find they are running something less heroic and much more intractable: namely the presidency. The people are well cured by then of election fever, during which they think they are choosing Moses. In the third year, they look on the man as a sinner and a bumbler and begin to poke around for rumours of another Messiah.
    Alistair Cooke (b. 1908)

    And ‘tis remarkable that they
    Talk most who have the least to say.
    —Matthew Prior (1664–1721)
