There are more fools in the world than there are people.
Heinrich Heine (1797 - 1856)
I have just returned from Boston. It is the only sane thing to do if you find yourself up there.
Fred Allen (1894 - 1956), in a letter to Groucho Marx, 1953
Get all the fools on your side and you can be elected to anything.
The world is full of people whose notion of a satisfactory future is, in fact, a return to the idealised past.
Robertson Davies, "A Voice from the Attic", 1960
