The sporting spirit is the spirit of Chicago  (Lincoln Steffens Quotes) Whenever anything extraordinary is done in American municipal politics, whether for good or for evil, you can trace it almost invariably to one man. The people do not do it. Neither do the ‘gangs,’ ‘combines,’ or political parties  (Lincoln Steffens Quotes) My father made with me one serious mistake which I see parents about me making. He got himself somehow into the awkward position of an authority; I thought he knew and was right on everything - for a while  (Lincoln Steffens Quotes) Keep your baby eyes (which are the eyes of genius) on what we don’t know  (Lincoln Steffens Quotes) One improvement I have learned from my childhood experience with my father: I do not threaten punishment in the morning.

Especially we ever-successful Americans - conscious, intelligent, illuminating failures  (Lincoln Steffens Quotes) The Soviet government sprouted and grew out of the habits, the psychology, and the condition of the Russian people. It fitted them. They understand it  (Lincoln Steffens Quotes) If we would vote in mass on the more promising ticket, or, if the two are equally bad, would throw out the party that is in, and wait till the next election and then throw out the other party that is in - then, I say, the commercial politician would feel a demand for good government and he would supply it.  (Lincoln Steffens Quotes) Most men think graft a sporadic evil, breaking out here and there, with no connection between outbreaks. I shared the same opinion, but very soon I discovered that the graft in the cities always leads to the graft in the State.  (Lincoln Steffens Quotes) The typical American citizen is the business man. The typical business man is a bad citizen; he is busy. If he is a ‘big business man’ and very busy, he does not neglect; he is busy with politics, oh, very busy and very businesslike.  (Lincoln Steffens Quotes) It is privilege that causes evil in the world, not wickedness, and not men  (Lincoln Steffens Quotes) Revolt is not reform, and one revolutionary administration is not good government  (Lincoln Steffens Quotes) Art is like a border of flowers along the course of civilization  (Lincoln Steffens Quotes) The only thing worth having in an earthly existence is a sense of humor  (Lincoln Steffens Quotes) You ask men in office to be honest; I ask them to serve the public  (Lincoln Steffens Quotes) The politer the society, the greater the lies it requires  (Lincoln Steffens Quotes) I have seen the future, and it works  (Lincoln Steffens Quotes) Nothing is done.

Sit around the bars and drink, and pose, and pretend, all you want to, but in reality, deep down underneath, care like hell  (Lincoln Steffens Quotes) Somebody must take a chance. There are monkeys who became men, and the monkeys who didn’t are still jumping around in trees making faces at the monkeys who did  (Lincoln Steffens Quotes) My mother would thump me sharply on the head with a thimble or a spoon if I became too noisy with the whistle when I was playing I was a steamboat captain. She had no sense of the dignity of command  (Lincoln Steffens Quotes) My father, the practical joker, did not care for practical jokes on himself; he did not encourage the practice in me  (Lincoln Steffens Quotes) I let my boy go and do and say pretty much as he likes, as, and perhaps because, my father kept no string on me  (Lincoln Steffens Quotes)
