Dirt’s a Funny Thing – “All The King’s Men” – Robert Penn Warren

December 12th, 2010 · No Comments · Campaigning, Means and Ends, Political Communication, Politics, Power, US Politics

Dirt’s a funny thing. Come to think of it, there ain’t a thing but dirt on this green God’s globe except what’s under water, and that’s dirt too. It’s dirt makes the grass grow. A diamond ain’t a thing in the world but a piece of dirt that got awful hot. And God-a-Mighty picked up a handful of dirt and blew on it and made you and me and George Washington and mankind blessed in faculty and apprehension. It all depends on what you do with the dirt.

Stark defends his blackmailing of his rivals with ‘dirt’.
