“Deep down I believe that Jesus Christ was actually the first socialist, and we shouldn’t be afraid of saying that the Christian value system is close to what left-wingers believe.”
—Krzysztof Gawkowski, secretary-general of the opposition Democratic Left Alliance (SLD) party, arguing that there is no contradiction between Catholicism and left-wing politics

“I was disappointed because I expected something else of him. [While in college] he smoked [pot] himself and his roommates at the dorm had a reputation for having the best grass in town.”
—Kamil Sipowicz , a historian of philosophy and a supporter of legalizing marijuana, about Prime Minister Donald Tusk, with whom he went to college and who now opposes making pot legal

“It’s a lot cheaper here and besides the goods are better quality—our cat eats Polish sausage no problem, while she won’t even touch the stuff we buy in Kaliningrad; and she’s an expert whose opinion can be trusted.”
—A Russian shopper asked by a reporter in a hypermarket in northeastern Poland about why so many Russians come to this country to shop
