Famous quotes containing the word political:

    The State is the altar of political freedom and, like the religious altar, it is maintained for the purpose of human sacrifice.
    Emma Goldman (1869–1940)

    Regna regnis lupi, The State is a wolf unto the State. It is not a pessimistic lamentation like the old homo homini lupus [Man is a wolf to Man], but a positive creed and political ideal.
    Johan Huizinga (1872–1945)

    Although knaves win in every political struggle, although society seems to be delivered over from the hands of one set of criminals into the hands of another set of criminals, as fast as the government is changed, and the march of civilization is a train of felonies, yet, general ends are somehow answered.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
