A Quote by Robert A. Taft on charity, clothes, food, government, instinct, labor, life, planning, and politicians

The New Dealers, labor politicians and Socialists have tried to take advantage of the natural American instinct for charity to forward their plans to socialize the furnishing of the necessities of life to all. If the Government gives free medical care to everybody, why not free food, clothing and housing?

A Quote by Raymond E. Moley on bankers, delusion, democracy, dictatorship, existence, feeling, heaven, idealism, interest, lawyers, managers, politicians, and world

The antithesis of democracy is class dictatorship, whether by groups of bankers, investors, managers, politicians, lawyers or union members. Over a considerable part of the world the unspeakable doctrine is being preached that the ideal of a democratic State is a snare and a delusion. A politician if he denies the existence of the essentials of democracy and denies it in such a way as to create class feeling, is not working in the interest of democracy even though he protests to the high heavens that that is his objective.

A Quote by Newell Dwight Hillis on leadership, politicians, secrets, self-reliance, solitude, time, world, and youth

Self-reliance can turn a salesman into a merchant; a politician into a statesman; an attorney into a jurist; an unknown youth into a great leader. All are to be tomorrow's big leaders - those who in solitude sit above the clang and dust of time, with the world's secret trembling on their lips.

The reason there are so few female politicians is that it is too much trouble to put makeup on two faces.
