Vice Chancellor Bonaparte

Famous quotes containing the words vice, chancellor and/or bonaparte:

    I begin to find out that nothing but virtue will do in this damned world. I am tolerably sick of vice which I have tried in its agreeable varieties, and mean on my return to cut all my dissolute acquaintance and leave off wine and “carnal company,” and betake myself to politics and Decorum.
    George Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)

    No woman in my time will be Prime Minister or Chancellor or Foreign Secretary—not the top jobs. Anyway I wouldn’t want to be Prime Minister. You have to give yourself 100%.
    Margaret Thatcher (b. 1925)

    There is only one step from the sublime to the ridiculous.
    —Napoleon Bonaparte (1769–1821)
