A friend in power is a friend lost.
Practical politics consists in ignoring facts.
Only on the edge of the grave can man conclude anything.
No man means all he says, and yet very few say all they mean, for words are slippery and thought is viscous.
Modern politics is, at bottom, a struggle not of men but of forces.
Knowledge of human nature is the beginning and end of political education.
Friends are born, not made.
Chaos was the law of nature; Order was the dream of man.
All experience is an arch, to build upon.
