Joseph Stalin Quote
“God is on your side? Is He a Conservative? The Devil's on my side, he's a good Communist.”
Said to Winston Churchill in Tehran, November 1943, as quoted in Fallen Eagle: The Last Days of the Third Reich (1995) by Robin Cross, p. 21 - Contemporary witnesses
This quote is widely attributed to Stalin, but may have been originated from a similar statement from the work "Französischer Witz" by Kurt Tucholsky (1932).

Quote of the day
“Philebus was saying that enjoyment and pleasure and delight, and the class of feelings akin to them, are a good to every living being, whereas I contend, that not these, but wisdom and intelligence and memory, and their kindred, right opinion and true reasoning, are better and more desirable than pleasure for all who are able to partake of them, and that to all such who are or ever will be they are the most advantageous of all things.”
