„Gheorghiu-Dej put more people in prison, but he had a motive. Ceausescu had no motive to do what he did. Things were worse under the last ten years of Ceausescu. It was terrible what he did.“

Serban Ghica, as quoted in John Sweeney, The Life and Evil Times of Nicolae Ceausescu (Hutchinson, 1991), p. 75

„I wasn't tempted to vote for Bush, but I understand why people did… because he obviously had integrity. It was a terrible kind of integrity, but he does what he says and he means what he says. And what he says is terrible and what he does is terrible, but he's consistent.“

Contexto: I wasn't tempted to vote for Bush, but I understand why people did… because he obviously had integrity. It was a terrible kind of integrity, but he does what he says and he means what he says. And what he says is terrible and what he does is terrible, but he's consistent. So I think a lot of people in Wyoming who care so much about integrity that they're willing to choose somebody that has a monstrous willingness to do any damn thing as long as he's up front about it — but that's not really quite enough for me. I mean I look forward to the day when I can be Republican again. I'm an Alan Simpson Republican.

„What the hell has Hoover got to do with it? Anyway, I had a better year than he did.“

—  Babe Ruth American baseball player 1895 - 1948

Oft-cited but likely apocryphal variation on Ruth's defense of his Hoover-exceeding salary demands (structurally similar, albeit in bolder, considerably more streamlined fashion, to the contemporaneously reported Ruth quote of January 7, 1930—see above); as quoted in Babe Ruth: The Big Moments of the Big Fellow http://quoteinvestigator.com/2014/12/28/better-year/#return-note-10331-1 (1947) by Tom Meany, p. 139, and reproduced shortly thereafter in several book reviews, most notably an informal review http://www.mediafire.com/view/720jdsq5hh19ar1/Daley%2C%20Arthur.%20Sports%20of%20the%20Times—Something%20About%20the%20Babe.%20The%20New%20York%20Times.%20December%2016%2C%201947.jpg by New York Times columnist Arthur Daley, who would go on to resurrect the quote, with slightly altered wordings, in at least four subsequent columns, including one in August 1948 http://www.mediafire.com/view/yz5mp5zi41v3xln/Daley%2C%20Arthur.%20Sports%20of%20the%20Times—Still%20More%20on%20the%20Babe.%20The%20New%20York%20Times.%20August%2019%2C%201948.jpg and in April 1951 http://www.mediafire.com/view/h3p6wvqdso308pk/Daley%2C%20Arthur.%20Carry%20a%20Bat%20Who%2C%20a%20Ball%20Player%20The%20New%20York%20Times.%20April%2015%2C%201951.%20Section%20VI%2C%20Page%2017..jpg.

Why not, I had a better year than he did.
I know, but I had a better year than Hoover.

„He had dabbled in a thing which he had not understood. And had, furthermore, committed that greater sin of thinking that he did understand.“

Contexto: He had dabbled in a thing which he had not understood. And had, furthermore, committed that greater sin of thinking that he did understand. And the fact of the matter was that he had just barely understood enough to make the concept work, but had not understood enough to be aware of its consequences.
