"I think it would be a good idea."

Mahatma Ghandi on being asked his views on western civilization.


Overheard at a state dinner in Beijing:

Sir Alec Douglas Home: Chairman, what do you think would have happened if President. Khrushchev were as assassinated and not of President Kennedy?

Chairman Mao: I do not believe Mr. Onassis would have married Mrs. Khrushchev.


"Jerry Ford is so dumb he can't fart and chew gum at the same time."

Lyndon Johnson


"Honest in the most odeous sense of the word"

Benjamin Disraeli on W.E. Gladstone


"I offer a toast to this gracious lady. Up your bottom"

Andrei Gromyko, former Soviet Foreign Minister to Mrs. Dean Rusk in 1979 at the Vienna Summit, after refusing the assistance of an interpreter


and my personal favorate:

"My choice early in life was either to be a piano player in a whorehouse or a politician. And to tell the truth there is hardly any difference."

Harry S Truman

Keep Smiling!

Charles, SJ

Not that funny, but still:

"The only thing I know about Slovakia is what I learned firsthand from your foreign minister, who came to Texas."

-- George W. Bush. He actually met with SLOVENIA's PRIME MINISTER. (wrong on 2 counts!)
