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
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 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
The Canadian kid who wants to grow up to be Prime Minister isn't thinking big, he is setting a limit to his ambitions rather early.Mordecai Richler
On Sundays, at the matin-chime, The Alpine peasants, two and three, Climb up here to pray; Burghers and dames, at summer's Prime, Ride out to church from Chamberry, Dight with mantles gay, But else it is a lonely time Round the Church of Brou.Matthew Arnold
After all, it is not every man who nearly becomes Prime Minister of England.Baron Butler
Joyce was a wonderful woman, but she wasn't Prime Minister, was she?joyce grenfell
The Prime Minister [Ramsay MacDonald]...circulated pamphlets by the thousand in German against our contention. It is terrible to think that such a man should be in high office with the support of anybody in this country.
By definition, as a Prime Minister I cannot be a liar.Silvio Berlusconi
I can stand here today, leader of the Labour Party, Prime Minister, and say to the British people: you have never had it so ... prudent.tony blair
Members of Congress I have the high privilege and distinct honour of presenting to you, his excellency Bertie Ahern (/ei/hern), the Taoiseach, the Prime Minister of Irelandnancy pelosi
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.
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.

A Prime number is one (which is) measured by a unit alone.euclid
It is tragic that we have lost one of our nation's finest actors in the Prime of his life. Heath Ledger's diverse and challenging roles will be remembered as some of the great performances by an Australian actor.heath ledger
"[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
Stern fate and time Will have their victims; and the best die first, Leaving the bad still strong, though past their Prime, To curse the hopeless world they ever curs'd, Vaunting vile deeds, and vainest of the worst.
John Howard turned the Prime ministership into something like a state police minister. He's at the scene of every crime, twice a day on radio, the guy did no thinking.paul keating
I look around this room and see a room full of senators, maybe one or two judges. A Conservative government will give jobs to people in other parties only after I've been Prime minister for fifteen years and can't find a single living, breathing Tory to appoint.brian mulroney
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
Nature's Prime favourites were the Pelicans; High-fed, long-lived, and sociable and free.james montgomery
