Famous quotes containing the word politics:

    In politics people throw themselves, as on a sickbed, from one side to the other in the belief they will lie more comfortably.
    Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe (1749–1832)

    The Germans—once they were called the nation of thinkers: do they still think at all? Nowadays the Germans are bored with intellect, the Germans distrust intellect, politics devours all seriousness for really intellectual things—Deutschland, Deutschland Über alles was, I fear, the end of German philosophy.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)
