Political extremism involves two prime ingredients: an excessively simple diagnosis of the world's ills, and a conviction that there are identifiable villains back of it all.
Sir Anthony Eden has been pretending that he is now invading Egypt in order to strengthen the United Nations. Every burglar of course could say the same thing, he could argue that he was entering the house in order to train the police. So, if Sir Anthony Eden is sincere in what he is saying, and he may be, he may be, then if he is sincere in what he is saying then he is too stupid to be a Prime minister.Aneurin Bevan
It is one thing being able to contest an election and to give the people hope that I can be the next Prime minister. It is a totally different situation where the people of Pakistan are told that the results are already taken and the leader of your choice is banned.benazir bhutto
Media people should have long noses like an elephant to smell out politicians, mayors, Prime ministers and businessmen. We need to know the reality, the good and the bad, not just the appearance.Dalai Lama
The rose is fragrant, but it fades in time: The violet sweet, but quickly past the Prime White lilies hang their heads, and soon decay, And white snow in minutes melts away.john dryden
Layton: After all these years of inaction, will the Prime Minister finally get something done and do something the former government would not do and that is to cancel the subsidies to big oil and big ass--I mean big gas and start putting--Stephen Harper: Mr. Speaker, I promise to get to the bottom of it.jack layton
He says to the Sovereign: "I no longer am leader of the majority party in the House of Commons; but I am carrying on as your Prime Minister." Now I don't think anyone can say that at least without inflicting damage on the constitution... [it is] tantamount to treating the monarch herself with disrespect and denying the very principle on which our parliamentary democracy is founded.enoch powell
So passeth, in the passing of a day, Of mortal life, the leaf, the bud, the flower; No more doth flourish after first decay, That erst was sought to deck both bed and bower Of many a lady and many a paramour. Gather therefore the rose whilst yet in Prime, For soon comes age that will her pride deflower. Gather the rose of love whilst yet in time, Whilst loving thou mayst loved be with equal crime.Edmund Spenser
There arethree classes whichneed sanctuary morethan othersbirds, wild flowers, and Prime Ministers.
The main essentials of a successful Prime Minister are sleep and a sense of history.
This was a secret meeting on a secret tour which nobody is supposed to know about. It means that there are men, and perhaps women, in this country walking around with eggs in their pockets, just on the off-chance of seeing the Prime Minister.edward heath
So I was smacked up on the Prime Minister's jet – big deal.will self
I refer to the misunderstanding of Soviet Russia as an aggressive power, militaristically and ideologically bent upon world domination 'seeing', to quote a recent speech of the British Prime Minister, 'the rest of the world as its rightful fiefdom.' How any rational person, viewing objectively the history of the last thirty-five years, could entertain this 'international misunderstanding' challenges, if it does not defeat, comprehension. The notion has no basis in fact... If Russia is bent on world conquest, she has been remarkably slothful and remarkably unsuccessful.enoch powell
Australian soldier whose body is held in the Australian War Memorial in Canberra , Australia . By former Australian Prime Minister Paul Keating
Your mind now, moldering like wedding-cake, heavy with useless experience, rich with suspicion, rumour, fantasy, crumbling to pieces under the knife-edge of mere fact. In the Prime of your life.
Oh roses for the flush of youth, And laurel for the perfect Prime; But pluck an ivy branch for me Grown old before my time.
Idleness is the great corrupter of youth, and the bane and dishonor of middle age. He who, in the Prime of life, finds time to hang heavy on his hands, may with much reason suspect that he has not consulted the duties which the consideration of his age imposed upon him; assuredly he has not consulted his happiness.blair hugh
"[Congress] is not the British Parliament, and I hope it never will become the British Parliament... Are we going to bring the president in here and have a question period like the Prime minister has in Great Britain?"trent lott
My suspicion was that Manning knew he could never become Prime minister of Canada because of Quebec and, consequently, that he wouldn't have been terribly sorry to see it leave the federation.preston manning
The organizer who creates roles, who creates the holes that will force the pegs to their shape, is a Prime creator of personality itself. When we ask of a man, "What is he?" the answer is usually given in terms of his major role, job, or position in society; he is the place that he fills, a painter, a priest, a politician, a criminal.kenneth boulding
Although I firmly believe that there is no such thing as a stupid question, there can indeed be stupid answers. 42 is an example. Not only is this a poor ripoff of Doug Adams' Hitchhiker's Guide, but it isn't even a Prime number. Everyone surely knows that numerical answers to profound questions are always Prime. (The correct answer is 37.)donald norman
The obvious mathematical breakthrough would be development of an easy way to factor large Prime numbers.
Mechanical engineering may be defined as the manufacture, installation, and repair of all kinds of machinery (including machine tools), Prime movers and boilers, and engines
Anarcho-capitalism is a form of anarchism whose Prime tenet is that the free market, unhampered by government intervention, can coordinate all the functions of society currently carried out by the state, including systems of justice and national defense. Anarcho-capitalists believe that a system of private property based on individual rights is the only moral system - a system that implies a free market, or total voluntarism, in all transactions.
