Famous quotes containing the word politicians:

    The American mood, perhaps even the American character, has changed. There are few manifestations any longer of the old American self-assurance which so irritated Dickens.... Instead, there is a sense of frustration so perceptible that even our politicians ... have attempted to exploit it.
    Archibald MacLeish (1892–1982)

    Wit puts politicians at risk.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)

    When politicians and politically minded people pay too much attention to literature, it is a bad sign—a bad sign mostly for literature.... But it is also a bad sign when they don’t want to hear the word mentioned.
    Italo Calvino (1923–1985)
