                I do not know anyone who has got to the top without hard work. That is the recipe. It will not always get you to the top, but should get you pretty near.

                        It's passionately interesting for me that the things that I learned in a small town, in a very modest home, are just the things that I believe have won the election.

                                  I always cheer up immensely if an attack is particularly wounding because I think, well, if they attack one personally, it means they have not a single political argument left.

                                                I usually make up my mind about a man in ten seconds; and I very rarely change it.

                                                  To wear your heart on your sleeve isn't a very good plan; you should wear it inside, where it functions best.

                                                    All truly historical peoples have an idea they must realize, and when they have sufficiently exploited it at home, they export it, in a certain way, by war; they make it tour the world.

                                                        But to me nothing - the negative, the empty - is exceedingly powerful.

                                                          It is not the creation of wealth that is wrong, but the love of money for its own sake.
