Maurice Duplessis
As long as I can keep the Jesuits scrapping with the Dominicans, I can get on with the business of the province.
Duplessis quotes
Hundreds of millions in capital has been invested to develop our resources. Let me repeat: American capital, English capital, French capital: Welcome!

You know, elections are not won with prayers.




Duplessis Maurice quotes
Before Duplessis died, we’d all go to church and make our sign [of the cross], and a year later we didn’t go to Mass any more. So we looked for another set of values, one that was all-enveloping, like the Church.
Duplessis Maurice
The bishops eat out of my hand.
Maurice Duplessis quotes
Over the last 40 years, talking about Duplessis has become like talking about the devil himself.
Maurice Duplessis
The period leaves no one indifferent. And that was our goal. We present the facts. It's up to the public to decide.
Duplessis Maurice quotes
The saying goes that after the death of every great man there's a long period of ingratitude. I find Maurice Duplessis's period is lasting pretty long.
Duplessis
Heaven is blue, hell is red.
Duplessis Maurice
Let us remain attached to the land... In the country, there are stability, common sense and strong religious convictions.
Maurice Duplessis
Education is like alcohol; some people can't take it.




Maurice Duplessis quotes
This is about an admitted attempt, encouraged from outside, to challenge and break the State's authority. That is intolerable. Whoever deviates from this policy that I have established, privately or publicly, will be expelled from the Union Nationale.
Maurice Duplessis
I kiss his [the priest's] ring and he kisses my a***.
Duplessis quotes
If I never read a business page, my admiration for him would be complete.
Duplessis Maurice
The province’s [Québec's] strength lies in the depth of its religious feeling... It must be the citadel of Christian civilization in Canada and even the entire North American continent.
Duplessis Maurice quotes
Less than fifteen cents to the province and more than twenty-five cents to Ottawa, this is far from being excessive!
