In this easy-to-use and fun-to-read collection of more than 4,000 quotes, politicians and philosophers, poets and priests, CEOs and comedians all share their views on leadership and liberty, treason and triumph, sacrifice and scandal, risk and rebellion, weakness and war, and other affaires politiques. For instance, Groucho Marx on politics: "Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies." A Visible Ink bestseller since the reign of George the Senior, it just keeps going and going. Apparently good quotes, like fine wine, just get better with age. Or maybe it's the back cover copy. With Power Quotes, readers can learn what Plato and Aristotle had to say about democracy, and find Mark Twain musing on any number of topics, including: "Its name is Public Opinion. It is held in reverence. It settles everything. Some think it is the voice of God." Or look up the self-serving statements James I made to Parliament about the divine nature of kings (he was for it). Richard Nixon's postmortem on Vietnam: "Rarely have so many people been so wrong about so much." Selected with impeccable judgment by quote master Daniel Baker, the quotes are organized under 50 themes such as ethics, monarchy, politics, public opinion, taxes, war and peace, and women in politics, and then arranged chronologically, with sources fully cited.
