- Stronger than all the armies is an idea thats time has come.
- I am a man of fixed and unbending principles, the first of which is to be flexible at all times.
- When I face an issue of great import that cleaves both constituents and colleagues, I always take the same approach. I engage in deep deliberation and quiet contemplation. I wait to the last available minute and then I always vote with the losers. Because, my friend, the winners never remember and the losers never forget.
- Some of my friends support the measure, and some of my friends oppose it. I support my friends.
- 'A billion here, a billion there, pretty soon, you're talking real money.'
