Zitate Aneurin Bevan

„Why read the crystal when he can read the book?“

—  Aneurin Bevan
Context: It has been suggested, I think by the hon. Member for East Aberdeenshire (Mr. Boothby) that the most constructive suggestion he could make was to urge an early General Election and a return of a Tory Government in Britain. Why on earth should he want to prophesy what might result from a Tory Government when history has the record for him? Why read the crystal when he can read the book? Hansard, House of Commons, 5th series, vol. 468, col. 319. Speech in the House of Commons, 29 September 1949.

„Although I am not myself a devotee of bigness for bigness sake, I would rather be kept alive in the efficient if cold altruism of a large hospital than expire in a gush of warm sympathy in a small one.“

„I stuffed their mouths with gold.“

—  Aneurin Bevan
Around 1948, Nye Bevan engineered a notorious "bribe" to win the support of hospital consultants. The father of the NHS made his famous declaration after he brokered a deal in which consultants were paid handsomely for their NHS work while allowing them to maintain private practices.
