Best Quotes of the Week – May 15, 2021

“I’m not a politician.  I’m not an elected official.  I don’t expect anybody to give two shits about my opinions.  But I will say this, you know, those are lies.”

Michael Fanone, Capital Hill police officer who was stun-gunned several times and beaten with a flagpole during the attack, about the January 6 riots and denials by some Republicans on the severity of the event

Fanone, who said he suffered a concussion and a heart attack during the violence, added, “Peddling that bullshit is an assault on every officer that fought to defend the Capitol.  It’s disgraceful.”

“Right now it’s basically the Titanic.  We’re … in the middle of this slow sink.  We have a band playing on the deck telling everybody it’s fine.  And, meanwhile, Donald Trump’s running around trying to find women’s clothing and get on the first lifeboat.”

Rep. Adam Kinzinger, criticizing his fellow Republicans for their ongoing allegiance to former Pres. Trump

“We are up currently against the ticking time bomb of an unrelenting climate crisis and an economic crisis wearing down working people.  Each day the process of passing an infrastructure package is delayed by performative negotiations with the GOP – who are clearly disinterested in working with Democrats – another day goes by that we are not healing our planet or getting people good jobs to support their families.”

Ellen Sciales, press secretary for Sunrise Movement, on the apparent unwillingness of Republicans to work with President Biden on his infrastructure bill proposal

“If there is no struggle, there is no progress.  Those who profess to favor freedom, and yet deprecate agitation, are men who want crops without plowing up the ground, they want rain without thunder and lightning.  They want the ocean without the awful roar of its many waters.”

Frederick Douglass

“We human beings are social beings. We come into the world as the result of others’ actions.  We survive here in dependence on others. Whether we like it or not, there is hardly a moment of our lives when we do not benefit from others’ activities.  For this reason, it is hardly surprising that most of our happiness arises in the context of our relationships with others.”

Dalai Lama
