In politics, the tripod is the most unstable of all structures.

from Dune book by Frank Herbert


When you’ve been around politics as long as I have, you see a lot of strange things. You may even think you’ve seen everything. But every now and then something happens that still has the power to knock your socks off, to show you that democracy can be full of surprises.

from On the House book by John Boehner


The most important thing to remember – in golf, in politics, in life – is that if you do the right things, for the right reasons, the right things will happen for you.

from On the House book by John Boehner


Most people think, politically speaking, that the right and the left are on a linear continuum – meaning that the right is on one side of the line, and the left is obviously on the other. That they are polar opposites. Far apart from one another. But the horseshoe theory says that the line is, well, shaped more like a horseshoe – that once you start going to the far right and the far left, that the line curves inward so that the two extremes are far closer to one another than they are to the center. Some go as far as to say it’s more like a circle – that the line bends so much that far left and far right are virtually indistinguishable – tyranny in one form or another.

from The Boy from the Woods book by Harlan Coben

from The Death of Money book by James Rickards
