Famous quotes containing the words politics and/or government:

    In politics people give you what they think you deserve and deny you what they think you want.
    Cecil Parkinson (b. 1932)

    If government knew how, I should like to see it check, not multiply, the population. When it reaches its true law of action, every man that is born will be hailed as essential.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
