Lange Quotes

To mark the passing of David Lange, I present some of his best quotes, including the very relevant first one:

“Death is very, very terminal”

“Our military forces are an arm of government, just like the Department of Social Welfare, although probably less able to inflict widespread harm”

Reporter: Does God help you
Lange: He’s not really in the Caucus lately

Reporter: So what will you do with the rest of your life?
Lange: I’m going to be a jockey

Upon seeing a machine at the Levin Horticultural Centre labelled “Media Steriliser” Lange said “Have that sent my office to my office immediately”.

“He wears a tie marked ‘’ so that he knows how to get home if he is abroad” on Warren Cooper.
