I always loved doing that “quote for the week” and I miss it. Here’s a link to a nice collection of politically-related quotations. A lot of them relate to media and culture, but aside from that they’re rather far-afield. I am hereby giving myself, and by extension, you, my readers, permission to indulge in non-library issues.
I might copy a few of them here myself, but the sources of the quotes aren’t cited beyond the authors’ names, and I know how we all feel about that, so I will leave the original compiler with that responsibility.
