I posted the following quote on my own blog this morning ... an observation from the American wit, Will Rogers: "Anything important is never left to the vote of the people. We only get to vote on some man; we never get to vote on what he is to do."
Here are some other thoughts on elections, politics, etc., to consider on this, the long-awaited election day.
"Politics are too serious a matter to be left to the politicians."
- Charles de Gaulle
"Our people are slow to learn the wisdom of sending character instead of talent to Congress."
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
"A week is a long time in politics."
- Harold Wilson
"In politics, you have no friends, only allies."
- John F. Kennedy
"Freedom is the oxygen of the soul."
- Moshe Dayan
"Politics is not the art of the possible; it is the art of making possible what is necessary."
- Jacques Chirac
"An election is coming. Universal peace is declared and the foxes have a sincere interest in prolonging the lives of the poultry."
- T.S. Eliot
Know another? Send it in.
- John Gushue
