Frasi Everett McKinley Dirksen

„I am a man of fixed and unbending principles, the first of which is to be flexible at all times.“

— Everett Dirksen
As quoted in Caught Between the Dog and the Fireplug, or, How to Survive Public Service (2001) by Kenneth H. Ashworth, p. 11

„A billion here, a billion there, pretty soon, you're talking real money.“

— Everett Dirksen
Although often quoted, it seems Dirksen never actually said this. The Dirksen Congressional Research Center made [https://web.archive.org/web/20140127115225/http://www.dirksencenter.org:80/print_emd_billionhere.htm an extensive search] when fully 25% of enquiries to them were about the quotation. They could find Dirksen did say "a billion here, a billion there", and things close to that, but not the "pretty soon you're talking real money" part. They had one gentleman report to them he had asked Dirksen about it on an airflight and received the reply: "Oh, I never said that. A newspaper fella misquoted me once, and I thought it sounded so good that I never bothered to deny it."

„Stronger than all the armies is an idea that's time has come. … The time has come for equality of opportunity in sharing in government, in education, and in employment. It will not be stayed or denied. It is here!“

— Everett Dirksen
Paraphrasing Victor Hugo when [http://www.senate.gov/artandhistory/history/minute/Civil_Rights_Filibuster_Ended.htm speaking about the Civil Rights Act of 1964] (10 June 1964)
