Famous quotes containing the words politics of and/or politics:

    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)

    They who have been bred in the school of politics fail now and always to face the facts. Their measures are half measures and makeshifts merely. They put off the day of settlement, and meanwhile the debt accumulates.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
