Quote of the Day | 1218

[…] in public life — as in our own families, and jobs — there are very few big ideas and simple solutions. I felt that politics at its best is a practical activity, not an ideology — a continual exercise of compassion, and grip, and competence, trying as best as you can to do a dozen small things for each problem in turn.

Yet every democracy in the world votes for people who promise so much more.

Rory Stewart, Politics: A Dozen Small Things
