Politics

“Politics is the most hazardous of all professions.  There is not another in which a man can hope to do so much good to his fellow creatures, neither is there any in which by a mere loss of nerve he may do such widespread harm; nor is there another in which he may so easily lose his own soul; nor is there another in which a positive and strict veracity is so difficult.  But danger is in the inseparable companion of honor.  With all the temptations and degradation that beset it, politics is still the noblest career any man can choose.”

-Andrew Oliver
18th century American politican
