“Çemberin içinde hata yaparsanız hatalarınızın bir önemi olmuyor. Hatalarınız hata olmaktan çıkıyor. Hata yapmak, çıkmaza düşmek politik erdemlerdendir, taktiktir, politik anlamda var olmanızı, basının dikkatini çekmenizi sağlar ve politikada haklı olup silinmektense hata yapıp her yerde olmak çok daha iyidir. Varlığınızı, ağırlığınızı koruduğunuz sürece dilediğiniz kadar çuvallayabilirsiniz.”
