    Milton Friedman was quoted when asked about the Federal Governments' efficiency: "If you put the U.S. government in charge of the Sahara Desert, in five years they would be a shortage of sand."

    Now that friends, is a classic.

    Once at a social gathering, Gladstone said to Disraeli, "I predict, Sir, that you will die either by hanging or of some vile disease".

    Disraeli replied, "That all depends, sir, upon whether I embrace your principles or your mistress."

    Churchill had some really great lines. Another was when he was talking to a woman who detested him ( and he hated her): She said: "Mr. Churchill, if you were my husband I'd poison your tea." He replied: "Madam, if I were your husband, I would drink it!"

    Mark Twain said "I'd rather keep my mouth shut and be thought stupid, than to open it and remove all doubt."
