Famous quotes containing the word political:

    Men conceive themselves as morally superior to those with whom they differ in opinion. A Socialist who thinks that the opinions of Mr. Gladstone on Socialism are unsound and his own sound, is within his rights; but a Socialist who thinks that his opinions are virtuous and Mr. Gladstone’s vicious, violates the first rule of morals and manners in a Democratic country; namely, that you must not treat your political opponent as a moral delinquent.
    George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)

    All the territorial possessions of all the political establishments in the earth—including America, of course—consist of pilferings from other people’s wash.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)

    The merely political aspect of the land is never very cheering; men are degraded when considered as the members of a political organization.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
