Indira Gandhi Quote
“All my games were political games; I was, like Joan of Arc, perpetually being burned at the stake.”
As quoted in: "The New York Times Biographical Service, Volume 2" (New York Times & Arno Press, 1971), "November 5, 1971"
“My grandfather once told me that there were two kinds of people: those who do the work and those who take the credit. He told me to try to be in the first group; there was much less competition.”
