"People often say with pride, 'I'm not interested in politics.' They might as well say, 'I'm not interested in my standard of living, my health, my job, my rights, my freedoms, my future or any future...' If we mean to keep control over our world and lives, we must be interested in politics." -- Martha Gellhorn (1908 -1998) American novelist, travel writer and journalist
