Pragmatic Quotations

When a politician like Marco Rubio is willing to sacrifice his career defining immigration reform legislation solely to insure that gays and lesbians are denied equal protection under the law, we have to admit that we're under attack. This is not pragmatic politics at work. These are the policies of bias, exclusion and unfairness.
Harvey Fierstein

Anne Hathaway

I am a very pragmatic person.
Gloria Swanson

Aldous Huxley

Camille Paglia
