Another Quotations Installment

I should apologize for the lack of posts lately... it has been one of those weeks where time seems to have slipped by, but I'm not entirely sure where it went. Anyway, hopefully I will redress my lack of writing this weekend, but for now here is another set of quotations.

"Youth would be an ideal state if it came a little later in life." - Herbert Asquith, Earl of Oxford and Asquith, British Prime Minister 1908-16, 1852-1928

"Lord Birkenhead is very clever but sometimes his brains go to his head." - Margot Asquith, wife of Herbert Asquith, 1864-1945

"After each war there is a little less democracy to save." - Brooks Atkinson, American journalist and critic, 1894-1984

"Democracy means government by discussion, but it is only effective if you can stop people talking." - Clement Attlee, British Prime Minister 1945-51, 1883-1967
