John Turner, born in the UK (June 7, 1929), was a Canadian lawyer & politician. He served as Canada’s 17th prime minister for a brief period in 1984. He was also the leader of the Liberal Party from 1984 to 1990.

This page explorers a few of John’s most famous quotes.

In any democracy, there is always a tug-of-war between policies to achieve equality and policies to promote excellence. I am certain that Canada can achieve both equality and excellence.

It’s hard to know how many rank-and-file nineteenth-century church members accepted the idea that Jesus was married to multiple women and fathered children, but the idea received support from many high-ranking leaders, including Brigham Young and Joseph F. Smith.

The most common objection to changes in public policy which would increase a user’s control of housing at the expense of centralized institutions is that standards would be lowered as a result. The standards the objectors have in mind, however, are not something that cam be achieved with available resources, but, rather, represent the objector’s own notion of what housing ought to be.

I guess there were fewer differences between me and social psychologists than between me and other people in general

Because of my political views, I’ve been targeted as a lightning rod, someone who’s too far out there.

Too often, our minds are locked on one track. We are looking for red – so we overlook blue. Many Nobel Prizes have been washed down the drain because someone did not expect the unexpected.

The LDS Church teaches that Christ’s atoning sacrifice enables the resurrection of all human beings and provides an opportunity for individuals to progress toward exaltation, meaning a higher level of glory within the celestial kingdom. Only those individuals who make and keep covenants with God on earth – beginning with baptism but also including additional ordinances – will be exalted into the presence of God and their savior for eternity.

I’m not going to play politics on the floor of the House of Commons.

Substantive and procedural law benefits and protects landlords over tenants, creditors over debtors, lenders over borrowers, and the poor are seldom among the favored parties.


Despite his short tenure as PM, Turner left a lasting mark on Canadian politics through his commitment to public service & dedication to the Liberal Party.
