Quote of the day

"There is a tide in the affairs of men, Which taken at the flood, leads on to fortune. Omitted, all the voyage of their life is bound in shallows and in miseries. On such a full sea are we now afloat. And we must take the current when it serves, or lose our ventures." - Brutus, in Julius Caesar

- William Shakespeare

Quote of the day

"I really do think that Baraka is going to win. The South Ward is going to support him heavily, and they vote, unlike a lot of people here in the Ironbound, who don't vote. You have people who own homes here, but now they've moved away, so they simply don't care." - Karen Suarez, a graduate of Newark's East Side High School and Rutgers-Newark.

Quote of the day

"In an earlier time, when Christie was the undisputed alpha male of New Jersey politics, he packed high-profile posts with close lieutenants, ex-federal prosecutors or campaign allies and Republican fundraisers who could be counted on to follow Christie's marching orders. No one in the Democratic-controlled Legislature stood in his way. But some of those confidants who helped Christie build first-term power have been the source of second-term scandal, especially at the Port Authority. Christie now needs to move outside his circle to show that he has truly moved on. So he's turned to Degnan." - columnist Charles Stile

Quote of the day

"A cold-blooded, calculating, unprincipled usurper, without a virtue; no statesman, knowing nothing of commerce, political economy, or civil government, and supplying ignorance by bold presumption."

- Thomas Jefferson on Napoleon Bonaparte

Quote of the day

"As an intellectual he bestowed upon the games of golf and bridge all the enthusiasm and perseverance that he withheld from books and ideas." - writer Emmet Hughes on President Dwight Eisenhower

Quote of the day

"The Bayonne mayoral debate was held Thursday evening in the local high school. A bunch of my 'balanced and fair' Baker Street Irregulars were present. For the rest of the county, all you have to know is that the invitation-only crowd [although you could have walked right in] was the most entertaining part of the event. Even though everyone was in theater-like seats, it was like hockey night in the old 50th Street Madison Square Garden where fan intimidation and audience face-offs was the real sport. All that was missing was a cloud of cigarette smoke for that Runyunesque feeling." - columnist Agustin Torres, The Political Insider

- The Jersey Journal

Quote of the day

"We met with both candidates, and I believe that both candidates are honorable people. The issue is public safety. I believe that Shavar Jeffries has a better plan as far as public safety going forward into the next four years." - Newark Fire Department Captain Anthony Tarantino, president of the Newark Fire Officers Union
