Everett Dirksen
We have been through this biennial convulsion four or five different times over the past 10 or 12 years, and now it appears that we are going through this quiet agony all over again.
Dirksen quotes
When I face an issue of great import that cleaves both constituents and colleagues, I always take the same approach. I engage in deep deliberation and quiet contemplation. I wait to the last available minute and then I always vote with the losers. Because, my friend, the winners never remember and the losers never forget.
A billion here, a billion there, pretty soon, you're talking real money.

Dirksen Everett quotes
I am a man of fixed and unbending principles, the first of which is to be flexible at all times.
Dirksen Everett
Stronger than all the armies is an idea thats time has come. The time has come for equality of opportunity in sharing in government, in education, and in employment. It will not be stayed or denied. It is here!
