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
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
The obvious mathematical breakthrough would be development of an easy way to factor large Prime numbers.bill gates
The main essentials of a successful Prime Minister are sleep and a sense of history.
I thank the Prime Minister for his remarks about me. Debating with him at the Dispatch Box has been exciting, fascinating, fun, an enormous challenge and, from my point of view, wholly unproductive in every sense. I am told that in my time at the Dispatch Box I have asked the Prime Minister 1,118 direct questions, but no one has counted the direct answers—it may not take long.william hague
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
We all know that Prime Ministers are wedded to the truth, but like other married couples they sometimes live apart.saki
I do here in the most solemn and bitter manner curse the Prime Minister of England for having cumulated all his other betrayals of the national interest and honour, by his last terrible exhibition of dishonour, weakness and gullibility. The depths of infamy which our accurst "love of peace" can lower us are unfathomable.enoch powell
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
Et cette proposition est généralement vraie en toutes progressions et en tous nombres premiers; de quoi je vous envoierois la démonstration, si je n'appréhendois d'être trop long.
And this proposition is generally true for all progressions and for all Prime numbers; the proof of which I would send to you, if I were not afraid to be too long.
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
It has become clear that following the Prime minister's decision not to hold an election, questions about leadership are getting in the way of further progress by the party. Accordingly I now submit my resignation as leader with immediate effect.menzies campbell
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
In our researches on the likely economic apocalypse it's become clear what is the Prime survival tool for hard times: friends. Good friends. Lots of them.stewart brand
I saw Len Hutton in his Prime, Another time, another time.Harold Pinter
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
I call'd the devil, and he came, And with wonder his form did I closely scan; He is not ugly, and is not lame, But really a handsome and charming man. A man in the Prime of life is the devil, Obliging, a man of the world, and civil; A diplomatist too, well skill'd in debate, He talks quite glibly of church and state.Heinrich Heine
