If you are not a liberal at twenty,
you have no heart.

If you are not a conservative at forty,
you have no brain.

“By the way, you know, I sit on the stand and it’d get hot. I got a lot of — I got hairy legs that turn blonde in the sun,” Biden said. “And the kids used to come up and reach in the pool and rub my leg down so it was straight and then watch the hair come back up again.”

He concluded his tale by saying, “I love kids jumping on my lap.”

This quote is from several years ago and I'm no longer convinced that it's "too early"

This one is also good...

The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings. The inherent virtue of Socialism is the equal sharing of miseries.

"For nonconformity the world whips you with its displeasure. And therefore a man must know how to estimate a sour face. The by-standers look askance on him in the public street or in the friend's parlour. If this aversation had its origin in contempt and resistance like his own, he might well go home with a sad countenance; but the sour faces of the multitude, like their sweet faces, have no deep cause, but are put on and off as the wind blows and a newspaper directs."

"I hope in these days we have heard the last of conformity and consistency. Let the words be gazetted and ridiculous henceforward. Instead of the gong for dinner, let us hear a whistle from the Spartan fife. Let us never bow and apologize more. "

"Man is timid and apologetic; he is no longer upright; he dares not say 'I think,' 'I am,' but quotes some saint or sage."

"The civilized man has built a coach, but has lost the use of his feet."

I wouldn’t say this quote by former Congressman Larry MacDonald is my favorite political quote but it seems increasingly relevant and frighteningly prescient with each passing Presidential election:

quote:

"I'm from the government and here to help".

Ronald Reagan

That would have been mine as well. Ron had a way of hitting the nail on the head and making common sense points.
