The trouble with Mr Lange, Mr Prebble offered in more than one compliment he delivered, was that he was so damn smart he was probably bored most of his life, which seemed to hit the mark.
– Jane Bowron, reviewing Reluctant Revolutionary in The Dominion Post, 26 October 2004
... they were all incredibly candid. And they were nicer about each other than they would have been even 15 years later. A lot of the old anger had died down and they thought 'let's just tell the truth'.

– Margaret Pope on the end of Lange's time as Prime Minister
