"I belong to no organized political party. I am a Democrat."

- Will Rogers


"If you can't drink their booze, take their money, fool with their women and then vote against 'em, you don't belong in politics."

Jess Unruh, late Speaker of the California Assembly


"I keep six honest serving men

(They taught me all I knew);

Their names are What and Why and When

And How and Where and Who."  

- from The Just-So Stories [1902]. The Elephant's Child  - Rudyard Kipling


"The price of apathy towards public affairs is to be ruled by evil men."  - Plato (427-347 BC)


"It is only once in a generation that a people can be lifted above material things. That is why conservative government is in the saddle two-thirds of the time."  -  Woodrow Wilson, to Franklin D. Roosevelt.


"If once a man indulges himself in murder, 

very soon he comes to think little of robbing; 

and from robbing he next comes to drinking and Sabbath-breaking, 

and from that to incivility and procrastination." 

- Thomas De Quincey, On Murder Considered as One of the Fine Arts        [To those of us whom have served in the Halls of Academia, you may substitute this for the last phrase: "and from that to returning homework and exams late."]
