Famous quotes containing the word politics:
“While youre playing cards with a regular guy or having a bite to eat with him, he seems a peaceable, good-humoured and not entirely dense person. But just begin a conversation with him about something inedible, politics or science, for instance, and he ends up in a deadend or starts in on such an obtuse and base philosophy that you can only wave your hand and leave.”
—Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (18601904)
“I believe you to be a brave and a skillful soldier, which, of course, I like. I also believe you do not mix politics with your profession, in which you are right.”
—Abraham Lincoln (18091865)
“The trouble with Nixon is that hes a serious politics junkie. Hes totally hooked ... and like any other junkie, hes a bummer to have around: especially as President.”
—Hunter S. Thompson (b. 1939)
