Political Quotations – Set 5

  1. All generalizations are dangerous, even this one. – attributed to Alexandre Dumas, French author (1824-1895)
  2. Heresy is another word for freedom of thought. – Graham Greene, English writer (1904-1991)
  3. Nothing makes people so worthy of compliments as occasionally receiving them. One is more delightful for being told one is delightful – just as one is more angry for being told one is angry. – Katharine Fullerton Gerould, American writer (1879-1944)
  4. In order to rally people, governments need enemies. They want us to be afraid, to hate, so we will rally behind them. And if they do not have a real enemy, they will invent one in order to mobilize us. – Thich Nhat Hanh, Vietnamese monk, activist and writer
  5. There is no such thing as conversation. It is an illusion. There are intersecting monologues, that is all. – Dame Rebecca West, Irish-born novelist (1892-1983)
