George Bernard Shaw
“All classes in proportion to their lack of travel and familiarity with foreign literature are bellicose, prejudiced against foreigners, fond of fighting as a cruel sport -- in short, dog-like in their notions of foreign policy."

[Quoted in Socialism and Foreign Policy and War and the Liberal Conscience]
George Bernard Shaw

Lee Kuan Yew
“We are pragmatists. We don't stick to any ideology. Does it work? Let's try it, and if it does work, fine, let's continue it. If it doesn't work, toss it out, try another one. We are not enamored with any ideology.”
Lee Kuan Yew

T.E. Lawrence
“All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake up in the day to find it was vanity, but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible.”
T.E. Lawrence, Seven Pillars of Wisdom: A Triumph

Napoléon Bonaparte
“I did not usurp the crown; it was in the gutter and I picked it out.”
Napoléon Bonaparte
