Famous quotes containing the word democratic:

    All the isms are wasms—except one, the most powerful ism of this century, indeed, of the entire democratic age, which is nationalism.
    John Lukacs (b. 1924)

    The democratic youth ... lives along day by day, gratifying the desire that occurs to him, at one time drinking and listening to the flute, at another downing water and reducing, now practising gymnastic, and again idling and neglecting everything; and sometimes spending his time as though he were occupied in philosophy.
    Plato (c. 427–347 B.C.)

    It’s like pushing marbles through a sieve. It means the sieve will never be the same again.
    —Before the 1972 Democratic Convention in Miami. As quoted in Crazy Salad, ch. 6, by Nora Ephron (1972)
