Famous quotes containing the words politics and/or government:

    The will to change begins in the body not in the mind
    My politics is in my body, accruing and expanding with every act of resistance and each of my failures.
    Adrienne Rich (b. 1929)

    The scope of modern government in what it can and ought to accomplish for its people has been widened far beyond the principles laid down by the old “laissez faire” school of political rights, and the widening has met popular approval.
    William Howard Taft (1857–1930)
