1.When you get together in a group, it becomes like a family, with the different personalities and the politics that comes with being in a band. It’s different than bringing something in by yourself. Albert Hammond, Jr.

2. Politics have no relation to morals. Niccolo Machiavelli

3. The ballot is stronger than the bullet. Abraham Lincoln

4. I must study politics and war that my sons may have liberty to study mathematics and philosophy. John Adams

5. We need to reject any politics that targets people because of race or religion. This isn’t a matter of political correctness. It’s a matter of understanding what makes us strong. The world respects us not just for our arsenal; it respects us for our diversity and our openness and the way we respect every faith. Barack Obama

6. Art, freedom and creativity will change society faster than politics. Victor Pinchuk

7. I am extraordinarily patient, provided I get my own way in the end. Margaret Thatcher

8. I am a teacher. It’s how I define myself. A good teacher isn’t someone who gives the answers out to their kids but is understanding of needs and challenges and gives tools to help other people succeed. That’s the way I see myself, so whatever it is that I will do eventually after politics, it’ll have to do a lot with teaching. Justin Trudeau

9. Animals have come to mean so much in our lives. We live in a fragmented and disconnected culture. Politics are ugly, religion is struggling, technology is stressful, and the economy is unfortunate. What’s one thing that we have in our lives that we can depend on? A dog or a cat loving us unconditionally, every day, very faithfully. Jon Katz

10. Perseverance is the hard work you do after you get tired of doing the hard work you already did. Newt Gingrich
