Alexandre Dumas
“My lord,” said D’Artagnan, “Monsieur de Vallon [Porthos] is like me, he prefers service extraordinary—that is to say, enterprises that are considered mad and impossible.”
Alexandre Dumas, Twenty Years After

Tony Blair
“But all progressive movements have to beware their own successes. The progress they make reinvents the society they work in, and they must in turn reinvent themselves to keep up, otherwise they become hollow echoes from a once loud, strong voice, reverberating still, but to little effect. As their consequence diminishes, so their dwindling adherents become ever more shrill and strident, more solicitous of protecting their own shrinking space rather than understanding that the voice of the times has moved on and they must listen before speaking. It happens in all organizations. It is fatal to those who are never confronted by a reckoning that forces them to face up and get wise.”
Tony Blair, A Journey: My Political Life

Tony Blair
“The first rule in politics is that there are no rules, at least not in the sense of inevitable defeats or inevitable victories. If you have the right policy and the right strategy, you always have a chance of winning. Without them, you can lose no matter how certain the victory seems.”
Tony Blair, A Journey: My Political Life

Alexandre Dumas
“Now an enemy is never so near and consequently so threatening, as when he has completely disappeared.”
Alexandre Dumas, Twenty Years After

Alexandre Dumas
“[L]earn how to distinguish the king from royalty; the king is but a man; royalty is the gift of God. Whenever you hesitate as to whom you ought to serve, abandon the exterior, the material for the invisible principle, for the invisible principle is everything.”
Alexandre Dumas, Twenty Years After
