Famous quotes containing the words military and/or politics:

    The military and the clergy cause us much annoyance; the clergy and the military, they empty our wallets and rob our intelligence.
    Franz Grillparzer (1791–1872)

    The politics of the exile are fever,
    revenge, daydream,
    theater of the aging convalescent.
    You wait in the wings and rehearse.
    You wait and wait.
    Marge Piercy (b. 1936)
