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.
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
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.john w. gardner
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
Much of my life seems in retrospect to have been spent in the company of putative national leaders passing through the process of being denounced and imprisoned for sedition, as part of the inevitable progression towards the Prime Ministership and the ritual tea-party at Windsor Castle.james cameron
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
It is fitting that we should have buried the unknown Prime Minister by the side of the Unknown Soldier.Asquith
Sometimes I forget I'm Prime Minister. To me, I'm just Tony Blair.
Say quotes from the shortstop or the Prime Minister, but quotations from the Bible, Browning or Churchill.McFarlane, J A, and Clements, Warren
"Once again, I challenge the Prime Minister to have an open debate with me on why he believes we must stay part of this failing, corrupt EU. The future of our nation is at stake. Mr Cameron, you have my phone number."nigel farage
Sitiveni Rabuka, chief instigator of two military coups in 1987 and Prime Minister (1992-1999):ratu sir kamisese mara
He was the only English politician who might easily have become Prime Minister as Conservative, Liberal or Socialist.oswald mosley
Dressed flamboyantly in leopard-print leg-warmers and matching hat, the chap managed to churn out a quick portrait of the Prime Minister which bears a striking if not fleshy resemblance to the head of government.
During the election, Prime Minister Harper ended some of his speeches with the words “God bless Canada.” Indeed, the prophet Isaiah says that God blesses you when you “share your bread with the hungry and bring the homeless poor into your house” (Isaiah 58.7). We urge the Prime Minister to spend tax dollars now in a way that will bring the homeless poor into their own house, and allow them the dignity of sharing their bread with others.
I think it's the worst of two worlds because in the current system you choose the best person I'm not sure the Prime minister chose the best person. And he cannot claim that it's a democratic process. Really, it's an election that came a very long time ago.
Whoever ... proves his point and demonstrates the Prime truth geometrically should be believed by all the world, for there we are captured.albrecht dürer
I, Tivadar Kosztka, who gave up his Prime of youth for the rebirth of the world, accepting the call of the invisible Spirit, had a regular civil job, comfort, wealth then ... Going to Paris in 1907 I oppositely standed alone in front of millions with only the result of the divine providence, and I beat the vanity of the world hollow, but I haven't killed 10 million people, only sobered them. I haven't made commercials from things, because I didn't care for the pedlar's press; I retired from the world instead, going to the top of the Lebanons, and I painted cedars.tivadar csontváry kosztka
A cheerful life is what the Muses love, A soaring spirit is their Prime delight.william wordsworth
I believe that the human race has developed a form of collective schizophrenia in which we are not only the slaves to this imposed thought behavior, but we are also the police force of it. The reason most people don't express their individuality and actually deny it, is not fear of what Prime ministers think of us or the head of the federal reserve, It's what their families and their friends down at the bar are going to think of them.david icke
The effect, if not the Prime office, of criticism is to make our absorption and our enjoyment of the things that feed the mind as aware of itself as possible, since that awareness quickens the mental demand, which thus in turn wanders further and further for pasture. This action on the part of the mind practically amounts to a reaching out for the reasons of its interest, as only by its ascertaining them can the interest grow more various. This is the very education of our imaginative life.Henry James
[Rhyme is] but the invention of a barbarous age, to set off wretched matter and lame Meter; ... Not without cause therefore some both Italian and Spanish poets of Prime note have rejected rhyme, ... as have also long since our best English tragedies, as... trivial and of no true musical delight; which [truly] consists only in apt numbers, fit quantity of syllables, and the sense variously drawn out from one verse into another, not in the jingling sound of like endings, a fault avoided by the learned ancients both in poetry and all good oratory.john milton
Systems, scientific and philosophic, come and go. Each method of limited understanding is at length exhausted. In its Prime each system is a triumphant success: in its decay it is an obstructive nuisance.
In general, Karnatak music is characterized and structured by a great degree of precision and rigidity in framework and is based on a strictly organized system. The percentage of fixed compositions rendered by artists is also relatively high in Karnatak music...embellishments on fixed compositions is one of the Prime elements of a Karnatak musical performance. Further in Karnatak system instrumental music very closely follows the vocal pattern.Vijaya Moorthy
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.
Nought treads so silent as the foot of Time; Hence we mistake our autumn for our Prime.Edward Young
