Disturbers are never popular - nobody ever really loved an alarm clock in action - no matter how grateful they may have been afterwards for its kind service.

quoted in Canadian by Conviction, Brune and Bulgutch, Gage Educational Publishing Company
Never retreat, never explain, never apologize. Get the thing done and let them howl.

quoted in Columbo's New Canadian Quotations by John Robert Columbo
Democracy has its faults; the people may run the country to the dogs, but they will run it back again.

quoted in Columbo's New Canadian Quotations by John Robert Columbo
