Citáty Tony Blair

„If it is, on occasions, the place of low skulduggery, it is more often the place for the pursuit of noble causes.“

— Tony Blair
Context: Some may belittle politics but we who are engaged in it know that it is where people stand tall. Although I know that it has many harsh contentions, it is still the arena that sets the heart beating a little faster. If it is, on occasions, the place of low skulduggery, it is more often the place for the pursuit of noble causes. I wish everyone, friend or foe, well. That is that. The end. [http://www.publications.parliament.uk/pa/cm200607/cmhansrd/cm070627/debtext/70627-0003.htm Hansard], Last official words as Prime Minister, said at Prime Minister's Questions on 27 June 2007.
