Thoughts for the day: Laws are like sausages, it is better not to see them being made.......

Laws are like sausages, it is better not to see them being made.

Anyone who has ever looked into the glazed eyes of a soldier dying on the battlefield will think hard before starting a war.

I have seen three emperors in their nakedness, and the sight was not inspiring.

When you say you agree to a thing in principle you mean that you have not the slightest intention of carrying it out in practice.

The secret of politics? Make a good treaty with Russia.

Never believe anything in politics until it has been officially denied.

Be polite; write diplomatically; even in a declaration of war one observes the rules of politeness.

People never lie so much as after fishing, during a war or before an election.

Whoever speaks of Europe is wrong: it is a geographical expression.

The great questions of the day will not be settled by means of speeches and majority decisions but by iron and blood.


Otto Von Bismarck (1815-1898)
