Our work is the presentation of our capabilities.

There are some people who live in a dream world, and there are some who face reality; and then there are those who turn one into the other.
The first requisite for success is the ability to apply your physical and mental energies to one problem incessantly without growing weary.
Nationalism is power hunger tempered by self-deception.
People who treat other people as less than human must not be surprised when the bread they have cast on the waters comes floating back to them, poisoned.
It's not a slam at you when people are rude -- it's a slam at the people they've met before.
A peace that comes from fear and not from the heart is the opposite of peace.
That terrible mood of depression of whether it's any good or not is what is known as The Artist's Reward.
I am in that temper that if I were under water I would scarcely kick to come to the top.
Depression is melancholy minus its charms -- the animation, the fits.
It's a recession when your neighbor loses his job; it's a depression when you lose your own.
Depression moods lead, almost invariably, to accidents. But, when they occur, our mood changes again, since the accident shows we can draw the world in our wake, and that we still retain some degree of power even when our spirits are low. A series of accidents creates a positively light-hearted state, out of consideration for this strange power.
Who, except the gods, can live time through forever without any pain?
The greatest evil is physical pain.
This is my depressed stance. When you're depressed, it makes a lot of difference how you stand. The worst thing you can do is straighten up and hold your head high because then you'll start to feel better. If you're going to get any joy out of being depressed, you've got to stand like this.
A political leader must keep looking over his shoulder all the time to see if the boys are still there. If they aren't still there, he's no longer a political leader.
The politician is like an acrobat : he keeps his balance By saying the opposite of what he does.
Practical politics consists in ignoring facts.
Politics, whatever its professions, has always been the systematic organization of hatreds.
Politics is the gentle art of getting votes from the poor and campaign funds from the rich by promising to protect each from the other.
Growing older, I have lost the need to be political, which means, in this country, the need to be left. I am driven into grudging toleration of the Conservative Party because it is the party of non-politics, of resistance to politics.
Nothing is irreparable in politics.
All political parties die at last of swallowing their own lies.
Therefore, the good of man must be the end of the science of politics.
Politics will sooner or later make fools of everybody.
The belief that politics can be scientific must inevitably produce tyrannies. Politics cannot be a science, because in politics theory and practice cannot be separated, and the sciences depend upon their separation. Empirical politics must be kept in bounds by democratic institutions, which leave it up to the subjects of the experiment to say whether it shall be tried, and to stop it if they dislike it, because, in politics, there is a distinction, unknown to science, between Truth and Justice.
My deepest feeling about politicians is that they are dangerous lunatics to be avoided when possible and carefully humored; people, above all, to whom one must never tell the truth.
It is as hard and severe a thing to be a true politician as to be truly moral.
When great questions end, little parties begin.
Every political system is an accumulation of habits, customs, prejudices, and principles that have survived a long process of trial and error and of ceaseless response to changing circumstances. If the system works well on the whole, it is a lucky accident -- the luckiest, indeed, that can befall a society.
Only when we are no longer afraid do we begin to live
