"My grandfather once told me that there are two kinds of people:
those who work and those who take the credit.
He told me to try to be in the first group;
there was less competition there."
Indira Gandhi
(1917-1984) Prime Minister of India

Reader comments about this quote:
How have so many political lifers gain by so many millions ? (Reid, Mr. Obamunist Goodwrench the assassin, etc.)
 -- Mike, Norwalk     
    Man, that ain't much of a quote.
    How'd ya like to be remembered for that dum-ass saying. It isn't even her idea.
    I looked for other quotes by her. They are all lame-ass except this one:
    "There exists no politician in India daring enough to attempt to explain to the masses that cows can be eaten."
    She had no idea why. The lessen there is that you can't force people to do things that have long been established within the culture. Laws follow the cultural norms. Not the other way around. But they try.

    Walter Clark, Your comment was "dum- ass" I can cut you some slack since you live in California, the land of fruits and nuts and Moonbeam Brown as your governor.

    Lamentably, to the monumentally great detriment of India, Mrs. Gandhi was an exponent and practitioner of inimical to salutary character development socialism, under which the unconstrained proliferation of the latter personality type characteristically occurs.

    We should give credit where credit is due, so we simply understand how the universe operates.
