Famous quotes containing the words activities and/or political:

    When mundane, lowly activities are at stake, too much insight is detrimental—far-sightedness errs in immediate concerns.
    Franz Grillparzer (1791–1872)

    My dear young friend ... civilization has absolutely no need of nobility or heroism. These things are symptoms of political inefficiency. In a properly organized society like ours, nobody has any opportunities for being noble or heroic. Conditions have got to be thoroughly unstable before the occasion can arise.
    Aldous Huxley (1894–1963)
