Almanac: Thoreau on politics
"Politics is, as it were, the gizzard of society, full of grit and gravel, and the two political parties are its two opposite halves,--sometimes split into quarters, it may be, which grind on each other. Not only individuals, but States, have thus a confirmed dyspepsia, which expresses itself, you can imagine by what sort of eloquence."
Henry David Thoreau, "Life Without Principle"
