Country quotes by William Odom
#1. Military officers from different countries, when they meet each other, tend to sort of fall in love, become mutual admiration societies, at the expense of realities. #Quote by William Odom
Country quotes by Washington Irving
#2. How we delight to build our recollections upon some basis of reality,
a place, a country, a local habitation! how the events of life, as we look back upon them, have grown into the well-remembered background of the places where they fell upon us! Here is some sunny garden or summer lane, beautified and canonized forever, with the flood of a great joy; and here are dim and silent places,
rooms always shadowed and dark to us, whatever they may be to others,
where distress or death came once, and since then dwells forevermore. #Quote by Washington Irving
Country quotes by Juan Manuel Santos
#3. I say this as the president of the country which has suffered more deaths, more blood and more sacrifices in this war #Quote by Juan Manuel Santos
Country quotes by Willa Cather
#4. As I looked about me I felt that the grass was the country, as the water is the sea. The red of the grass made all the great prairie the colour of winestains, or of certain seaweeds when they are first washed up. And there was so much motion in it; the whole country seemed, somehow, to be running. #Quote by Willa Cather
Country quotes by William M. Daley
#5. I think the misconceptions, there are certain people that are fixed in those with those beliefs, and been in those for twenty-five years, you're not going to change them ... What you've got to do is basically talk to the future about what you want to with the country. #Quote by William M. Daley
Country quotes by Aleksander Kwasniewski
#6. Following the Second World War, we are a country of one ethnicity. After the moving of the borders, after the tragedy of the Holocaust and the murder of Polish Jews, we don't have large minority groups. #Quote by Aleksander Kwasniewski
Country quotes by Lillete Dubey
#7. India's a fascinating country. It's constantly changing, but there's still a lot of superstition and backwards thinking. #Quote by Lillete Dubey
Country quotes by Sophocles
#8. Whoever thinks his friend more important than his country, I rate him nowhere. #Quote by Sophocles
Country quotes by John Buford
#9. I am willing to serve my country, but do not wish to sacrifice the brave men under my command. #Quote by John Buford
Country quotes by Alexander McCall Smith
#10. Dear friends, he began, there is no timetable for happiness; it moves, I think, according to rules of its own. When I was a boy I thought I'd be happy tomorrow, as a young man I thought it would be next week; last month I thought it would be never. Today, I know it is now. Each of us, I suppose has at least one person who thinks that our manifest faults are worth ignoring; I have found mine, and am content. When we are far from home we think of home; I, who am happy today, think of those in Scotland for whom such happiness might seem elusive; may such powers as listen to what is said by people like me, in olive groves like this, grant to those who want a friendship a friend, attend to the needs of those who have little, hold the hand of those who are lonely, allow Scotland, our place, our country, to sing in the language of her choosing that song she has always wanted to sing, which is of brotherhood, which is of love. #Quote by Alexander McCall Smith
Country quotes by Jamie Dimon
#11. As countries get wealthier - all of them, together - you're going to have financial assets. That is a good thing. You could argue the assets were traded too much, or that they're too highly valued, or too leveraged. #Quote by Jamie Dimon
Country quotes by John Niven
#12. When I was a boy during Thatcher, you watched elections and wept in disbelief as the whole country turned blue, Scotland turned red, and we still got the Tories. #Quote by John Niven
Country quotes by Ta-Nehisi Coates
#13. I'm the descendant of enslaved black people in this country. You could've been born in 1820 if you were black and looked back to your ancestors and saw nothing but slaves all the way back to 1619. Look forward another 50 or 60 years and saw nothing but slaves. #Quote by Ta-Nehisi Coates
Country quotes by Raymond Chandler
#14. It is pretty obvious that the debasement of the human mind caused by a constant flow of fraudulent advertising is no trivial thing. There is more than one way to conquer a country. #Quote by Raymond Chandler
Country quotes by George Albert Smith
#15. Our feet have been planted upon this sacred soil for a wise purpose. This land has been dedicated for the blessing of mankind. The Constitution and the laws that have been enacted under its provisions are calculated to insure liberty, not license, to all who dwell here. This church with which we are identified stands, if it stands for anything, for the perpetuation of the liberties of all mankind. We should not listen to those who find pleasure in teaching sedition. Neither should we follow those who claim to be citizens of this land, who go about violating the laws that govern it. There are many who are failing to do their duty as citizens who have the right of franchise, but who are unworthy of that blessing that has come to those who live in this wonderful country. #Quote by George Albert Smith
Country quotes by Jaimal Yogis
#16. I guess even the prettiest things eventually end up stinking. Everything does. We all will die and rot and decay and be reborn as dirt or flowers or worms, or polar bears who will drown because their ice is all melting, or presidents of war-torn countries, or whales swimming around acidifying seas. And then we will rot and decay again. And so it goes. #Quote by Jaimal Yogis
Country quotes by George W. Bush
#17. I think the thing that
the prayer that I would like America is to ask for is to pray for God's protection for our land and our people, to pray against
that there's a shield of protection, so that if the evil ones try to hit us again, that we've done everything we can, physically, and that there is a spiritual shield that protects the country. #Quote by George W. Bush
Country quotes by Evel Knievel
#18. My own judgment of how the world is gonna end is that there will be a country led by a madman that will build a nuclear bomb with so much force, so much power, that it will be dropped somewhere on the face of this earth and that the earth will lose its place. #Quote by Evel Knievel
Country quotes by Darrel Ray
#19. Throughout adolescence, Muslim men receive strong messages about male dominance in Marriage. The Koran is highly male-focused, with women being of little importance. Mohammed married as many women as he wanted, even a nine-year-old girl. Polygamy was acceptable and women were given in marriage with little consideration. Rules and punishments for women are far harsher than for men. [ ... ] Women are told that their purpose is to please the man and have children. Men are taught that sex with an in infidel woman, especially in another country, is not a sin against Allah. For a Muslim woman, sex with any man except her husband is a crime. #Quote by Darrel Ray
Country quotes by Ziggy Marley
#20. I prefer the country life. I live in Kingston, but there is lots of trees. #Quote by Ziggy Marley
Country quotes by Debra Holland
#21. He'd concluded that not only should females have the right to vote, they should probably be governing the whole darn country. #Quote by Debra Holland
Country quotes by Morley Safer
#22. I really feel stateless, which is not bad, because I always felt a man without a country was not encumbered by narrow loyalties. #Quote by Morley Safer
Country quotes by Barack Obama
#23. The wort terrorist attack in American history also brought out the best in our country ... We are United as Americans. #Quote by Barack Obama
Country quotes by Noam Chomsky
#24. So understood, anarchism is the inheritor of the classical liberal ideas that emerged from the Enlightenment. It is part of a broader range of libertarian socialist thought and action that ranges from the left anti-Bolshevik Marxism of Anton Pannekoek, Karl Korsch, Paul Mattick, and others, to the anarcho-syndicalism that crucially includes the practical achievements of revolutionary Spain in 1936, reaching further to worker-owned enterprises spreading today in the Rust Belt of the United States, in northern Mexico, in Egypt, and in many other countries, most extensively in the Basque country in Spain, also encompassing the many cooperative movements around the world and a good part of feminist and civil and human rights initiatives. #Quote by Noam Chomsky
Country quotes by Rebecca Hamilton
#25. Every indication is that the Sudanese government will be defining it as an Arab, Muslim country. But there are also a lot of Christians and a lot of people, like the Nuba, who are not Arab. And that is why it is going to be problematic that Sudan will be defined in this way. #Quote by Rebecca Hamilton
Country quotes by Erwin Panofsky
#26. Reform or no reform, he never ceased to promote the interests of St. Denis and the Royal House of France with the same naive, and in his case not entirely unjustified, conviction of their identity with those of the nation and with the Will of God as a modern oil or steel magnate may promote legislation favorable to his company and to his bank as something beneficial to the welfare of this country and to the progress of mankind. #Quote by Erwin Panofsky
Country quotes by Rick Riordan
#27. I have an uncle and cousin in Boston." Percy looked shocked. "You, with the Yankees cap? You've got family in Red Sox country?" Annabeth smiled weakly. "I never see them. My dad and my uncle don't get along. Some old rivalry. I don't know. It's stupid what keeps people apart. #Quote by Rick Riordan
Country quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
#28. One of the most dangerous classes in the world," said he, "is the drifting and friendless woman. She is the most harmless and often the most useful of mortals, but she is the inevitable inciter of crime in others. She is helpless. She is migratory. She has sufficient means to take her from country to country and from hotel to hotel. She is lost, as often as not, in a maze of obscure pensions and boardinghouses. She is a stray chicken in a world of foxes. When she is gobbled up she is hardly missed. #Quote by Arthur Conan Doyle
Country quotes by Fabio Capello
#29. The only thing that I know about Feyenoord, is that they are from the country of Ajax #Quote by Fabio Capello
Country quotes by Robbie Robertson
#30. Cowboys had guitars. And they sang country 'cause they lived in the country. #Quote by Robbie Robertson
Country quotes by Dorothy Dunnett
#31. Five years ago your brother Lymond was found to have been selling his own country for years: he's been kicked from land to land committing every crime on the calendar and now he's back here, God forgive him, with filthier habits and a nastier mind than he set out with. #Quote by Dorothy Dunnett
Country quotes by Bernie Sanders
#32. I will do my best to transform our trade policy and take on these corporations who want to invest in low-income countries around the world rather than in the United States of America. #Quote by Bernie Sanders
Country quotes by Ernest Hemingway,
#33. I loved the country so that I was happy as you are after you have been with a woman that you really love, when, empty, you feel it welling up again and there it is and you can never have it all and yet what there is, now, you can have, and you want more and more, to have, and be, and live in, to possess now again for always, for that long, sudden-ended always; making time stand still, sometimes so very still that afterwards you wait to hear it move,and it is slow in starting. #Quote by Ernest Hemingway,
Country quotes by Paullina Simons
#34. Now she had words to dull her senses. English words, a new name, and covering it all like a warm blanket, a new life in amazing, immoderate, pulsating America. A sparkling new identity in a gilded immense new country. God had made it as easy as possible to forget him. To you, I give this, God said. I give you freedom and sun, and warmth, and comfort. I give you summers in Sheep Meadow and Coney Island, and I give you Vikki, your friend for life, and I give you Anthony, your son for life, and I give you Edward, in case you want love again. I give you youth and I give you beauty, in case you want someone other than Edward to love you. I give you New York. I give you seasons, and Christmas! And baseball and dancing and paved roads and refrigerators, and a car, and land in Arizona. I give it all to you. All I ask, is that you forget him and take it. #Quote by Paullina Simons
Country quotes by Thomas Davis
#35. Educate, that you might be free. We are most anxious to get the quiet, strong minded people who are scattered throughout the country to see the force of this great truth. #Quote by Thomas Davis
Country quotes by Ronald Reagan
#36. Deep religious beliefs stemming from the Old and New Testaments of the Bible inspired many of the early settlers of our country, providing them with the strength, character, convictions, and faith necessary to withstand great hardship and danger in this new and rugged land. These shared beliefs helped forge a sense of common purpose among the widely dispersed colonies - a sense of community which laid the foundation for the spirit of nationhood that was to develop in later decades. #Quote by Ronald Reagan
Country quotes by John Cheever
#37. They were delivered to mansions remodeled into country clubs, boarding schools, retreats for the insane, alcohol cures, health farms, wildlife sanctuaries, wallpaper factories, drafting rooms and places where the aged and the infirm waited sniffily for the angel of death in front of their television sets. #Quote by John Cheever
Country quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#38. If you believe that everyone born of God overcomes the world, your country will see the beautiful morning of a new life #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Country quotes by Jennifer L. Armentrout
#39. Apollo had said he knew what this kind of love was capable of. And I finally understood why Paris had risked his country and his blood for Helen. Selfish, yes, but I understood. I would burn the world if that meant Alex would be safe. #Quote by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Country quotes by Armstrong Williams
#40. The country remains dependent on oil. But as we are now learning, oil is becoming increasingly scarce. #Quote by Armstrong Williams
Country quotes by Jonathan Zittrain
#41. Citizens identify with something larger than themselves - if one's country is attacked, it can feel like a personal attack in a way that a fellow bank customer's account theft does not feel like a personal invasion. #Quote by Jonathan Zittrain
Country quotes by Donald Trump
#42. We are not talking about isolation. We're talking about security. We're not talking about religion. We're talking about security. Our country is out of control. People are pouring across the southern border. I will build a wall. It will be a great wall. People will not come in unless they come in legally. Drugs will not pour through that wall. #Quote by Donald Trump
Country quotes by Dan Flores
#43. We stood by and allowed what happened to the Great Plains a century ago, the destruction of one of the ecological wonders of the world. In modern America, we need to see this with clear eyes, and soberly, so that we understand well that the flyover country of our own time derives much of its forgettability from being a slate wiped almost clean of its original figures. #Quote by Dan Flores
Country quotes by G.M.W. Wemyss
#44. I saw a pair of great tits some days ago. (Massingham Major, you are a dirty-minded boy, and if you snigger again, you will do five hundred lines.) The squeaking-wheel song of Parus major is always gladsome, a precursor to interesting scenes at the bird table. On this occasion, however, what hearing and seeing the two greenery-yallery Paridae first called up in me was a memory from last year's early Springtide: an aerial near-collision. A very young squirrel – native red, I am rejoiced to say – was leaping from one tree trunk to another, adjacent, just as a great tit was exploding outwards in flight from the second tree. You never saw a more indignant bird or a more startled squirrel in your life. #Quote by G.M.W. Wemyss
Country quotes by Evan Thomas
#45. I mean, in a way, Obama's standing above the country, above - above the world, he's sort of God. #Quote by Evan Thomas
Country quotes by Jeremy Corbyn
#46. It is a ludicrous statistic plucked out of the air and used to justify a quite appalling attack on many of the poorest people in this country. #Quote by Jeremy Corbyn
Country quotes by Adrienne Rich
#47. Flags are blossoming now where little else is blossoming
and I am bent on fathoming what it means to love my country.
The history of this earth and the bones within it?
Minerals, traces, rumors I am made from, morsel, minuscule
fibre, one woman
like and unlike so many, fooled as to her destiny, the scope of
her task?
One citizen like and unlike so many, touched and untouched in passing ...
A patriot is not a weapon. A patriot us one who wrestles for the
soul of her country
as she wrestles for her own being, for the soul of his country ... #Quote by Adrienne Rich
Country quotes by Bella Abzug
#48. I am not being facetious when I say that the real enemies in this country are the Pentagon and its pals in big business. #Quote by Bella Abzug
Country quotes by Mohamed Osman Abbasheikh
#49. Never build your country, until you build and grow your people #Quote by Mohamed Osman Abbasheikh
Country quotes by Dolly Parton
#50. When the new country came out ten to 15 years ago, people my age were almost too old. But it never stopped me. I never stopped writing. I never stopped recording. #Quote by Dolly Parton
Country quotes by Jennifer Lee
#51. When a dish really hits a nerve with the American palate, it can really take off across the entire country, facilitated by food vendors' freedom to copy good ideas. #Quote by Jennifer Lee
Country quotes by Allan G. Johnson
#52. A student of color in one of my classes, for example, once told me that she noticed my cutting her off during class, something she didn't think I did with white students. I could have weighed in with my professional authority and said it wasn't true, that she was imagining it, that I treated all my students that way, that she was being too sensitive, that I travel all over the country speaking about issues of inequality and injustice, so certainly I was above such things. But what I said to her was that I was truly sorry she'd had that experience. I wasn't aware of doing that, I told her, and the fact that I didn't consciously mean to was beside the point.

To respond in this way, I had to de-center myself from my privilege and make her experience and not mine the point of the conversation. I ended by telling her I would do everything I could to oay attention to this problem in the future to make sure it didn't happen again. #Quote by Allan G. Johnson
Country quotes by Barbara Demick
#53. For the 1,300 years prior to the Japanese occupation, Korea had been a unified country governed by the Chosun dynasty, one of the longest-lived monarchies in world history #Quote by Barbara Demick
Country quotes by Robert Shapiro
#54. I believe there are certainly racial problems in this country, and I believe that peaceful solutions can help bring the races together. #Quote by Robert Shapiro
Country quotes by John Newton
#55. Those whom [the Lord] teaches, are always increasing in knowledge, both of themselves and of him. The heart is deep, and, like Ezekiel's vision, presents so many chambers of imagery, one within another, that it requires time to get a considerable acquaintance with it, and we shall never know it thoroughly. It is now more than twenty-eight years since the Lord began to open mine to my own view; and from that time to this, almost every day has discovered to me something which until then was unobserved; and the farther I go, the more I seem convinced that I have entered but a little way. A person who travels in some parts of Derbyshire may easily be satisfied that the country is cavernous; but how large, how deep, how numerous the caverns may be, which are hidden from us by the surface of the ground, and what is contained in them - are questions which our most discerning inquirers cannot fully answer…
And if our own hearts are beyond our comprehension, how much more incomprehensible is the heart of Jesus! If sin abounds in us - grace and love superabound in him! His ways and thoughts are higher than ours, as the heavens are higher than the earth; his love has a height, and depth, and length, and breadth, which passes all knowledge! The riches of his grace are unsearchable riches! Eph. 3:8, Eph. 3:18, Eph. 3:19. All that we have received or can receive from him, or know of him in this life, compared with what he is in himself, or what he has for us - is but as the drop of a #Quote by John Newton
Country quotes by Bernie Sanders
#56. Even in South Carolina, as badly as we did, and we did very badly, we won the votes of people 29 years of age or younger. The future of the Democratic Party, the future of this country is involving young people in the political process, getting them to stand up for their rights. #Quote by Bernie Sanders
Country quotes by Theodore Roosevelt
#57. Patriotism means to stand by the country. It does not mean to stand by the president or any other public official, save exactly to the degree in which he himself stands by the country. It is patriotic to support him insofar as he efficiently serves the country. It is unpatriotic not to oppose him to the exact extent that by inefficiency or otherwise he fails in his duty to stand by the country. In either event, it is unpatriotic not to tell the truth, whether about the president or anyone else. #Quote by Theodore Roosevelt
Country quotes by Ted Cruz
#58. I think the working men and women are getting hammered right now. They want someone they can trust to stand with them. And part of the reason so many conservatives are uniting behind our campaign is, I'm the only one who led the battle against amnesty, has led the battle to secure the borders, has led the battle for the working men and women of this country. #Quote by Ted Cruz
Country quotes by Charley Pride
#59. There were no guarantees that country music, whose roots were in the South, were ready for Charley Pride. #Quote by Charley Pride
Country quotes by Zack Love
#60. When you come to a new country with so little, all you have is your character. #Quote by Zack Love
Country quotes by Brigitte Gabriel
#61. I think the biggest disservice to the American people was the denial by the networks to air video of the beheading of Daniel Pearl, Nick Berg, or the many other hostages that were beheaded in Iraq. We as a society need to see the type of enemy we are fighting. People have been so sheltered in this country that they have not paid attention to what has been going on for the last twenty-some years. And today, even after the attack of September 11, people still cannot fathom that this type of barbarity could happen here. #Quote by Brigitte Gabriel
Country quotes by John Burroughs
#62. I do not think I exaggerate the importance or the charms of pedestrianism, or our need as a people to cultivate the art. I think it would tend to soften the national manners, to teach us the meaning of leisure, to acquaint us with the charms of the open air, to strengthen and foster the tie between the race and the land. No one else looks out upon the world so kindly and charitably as the pedestrian; no one else gives and takes so much from the country he passes through. #Quote by John Burroughs
Country quotes by Jefferson Davis
#63. It is our duty to keep the memory of our heroes green. Yet they belong to the whole country; they belong to America. #Quote by Jefferson Davis
Country quotes by Joe Bageant
#64. Man! Can you believe they actually allow this stuff to be sold over there? Glad we got laws against that crap in this country." I remind him that the socialist party is probably the largest political party on the planet. "Aw bullshit!" he said. I asked, "Then what the hell do you think is the largest party?" "The Republican Party of course! We're the only country with real political parties." Now this is from a guy who has an MBA from one of the South's universities, holds local office, and has influenced public affairs. #Quote by Joe Bageant
Country quotes by Barbara Ehrenreich
#65. Call it 'nationalism' when you affix a flag to your car, and leave the word 'patriotism' for your efforts to make this country a kinder, more egalitarian place, and one that is less dangerous to the rest of the world. #Quote by Barbara Ehrenreich
Country quotes by Chris Kraus
#66. Two hours ago I took a break from writing this to take a walk before the sun went down. I had an urge to play Willie Nelson's "Crazy" on the Red Hot Country CD before going out, but didn't. When I turned the bend on 49th Terrace, my usual walk, Crazy sung by Patsy Cline was pouring, I mean POURING, out the windows of a house. I leaned back against a fence across the street and watched the house lift off. An operatic, cinematic moment, everything locked into a single frame that gets you high. Like You I'm Trapped. #Quote by Chris Kraus
Country quotes by Katherine Anne Porter
#67. These beliefs were mainly Protestant but not yet petty middle-class puritanism: there remained still an element fairly high stepping and wide gestured in its personal conduct. The petty middle class of fundamentalists who saw no difference between wine-drinking, dancing, card-playing, and adultery, had not yet got altogether the upper hand in that part of the country - in fact, never did except in certain limited areas; but it was making a brave try. #Quote by Katherine Anne Porter
Country quotes by Alan Paton
#68. Now God be thanked that the name of a hill is such music, that the name of a river can heal. #Quote by Alan Paton
Country quotes by Sarah Roemer
#69. I left home when I turned 17 and ran away to New York. I did a lot of moving. I was based in New York and country-hopping, so I was always 'the new girl'. #Quote by Sarah Roemer
Country quotes by Timothy Garton Ash
#70. Starting from the ruins of the Second World War, we - all Europeans said, after centuries of fighting each other, we're going to build permanent arrangements in which peace between European countries is secured, freedom is secured, and growing prosperity. And that's what we have done over the last 70 years. #Quote by Timothy Garton Ash
Country quotes by Earl Nightingale
#71. How are you coming with your home library? Do you need some good ammunition on why it's so important to read? The last time I checked the statistics...I think they indicated that only four percent of the adults in this country have bought a book within the past year. That's dangerous. It's extremely important that we keep ourselves in the top five or six percent.
In one of the Monthly Letters from the Royal Bank of Canada it was pointed out that reading good books is not something to be indulged in as a luxury. It is a necessity for anyone who intends to give his life and work a touch of quality. The most real wealth is not what we put into our piggy banks but what we develop in our heads. Books instruct us without anger, threats and harsh discipline. They do not sneer at our ignorance or grumble at our mistakes. They ask only that we spend some time in the company of greatness so that we may absorb some of its attributes.

You do not read a book for the book's sake, but for your own.

You may read because in your high-pressure life, studded with problems and emergencies, you need periods of relief and yet recognize that peace of mind does not mean numbness of mind.

You may read because you never had an opportunity to go to college, and books give you a chance to get something you missed. You may read because your job is routine, and books give you a feeling of depth in life.

You may read because you did go to college.

#Quote by Earl Nightingale
Country quotes by Donald Trump, Jr.
#72. I know when my father [Donald Trump] puts his mind to something he's going to do a phenomenal job with it. He's a great businessman. He has an incredible track record. And I know he understands what this country needs and what it wants. #Quote by Donald Trump, Jr.
Country quotes by Grover Norquist
#73. People are an asset, not a liability. The United States is the most immigrant-friendly nation in the world and the richest country in the world. This is not a coincidence. Those voices that would make us less immigrant-friendly would make us less successful, less prosperous and certainly less American. #Quote by Grover Norquist
Country quotes by Li Peng
#74. There are nearly 200 countries and a population of over 6 billion in today's world. International affairs should be addressed by all countries through consultations rather than monopolised by a few powers. #Quote by Li Peng
Country quotes by Alfred Hitchcock
#75. Never judge a country by its politicians. #Quote by Alfred Hitchcock
Country quotes by Sarah Palin
#76. I'm going to fight to make sure every American has every reason to thank God, as I thank Him: that I'm an American, a proud citizen of the greatest country on earth, and with hard work, strong faith and a little courage, great things are always within our reach. #Quote by Sarah Palin
Country quotes by Karen DeCrow
#77. Betty Ford and I were colleagues for years, working together for women's rights in Washington, D.C., and elsewhere in the country. #Quote by Karen DeCrow
Country quotes by John Boyd Orr
#78. Measured in time of transport and communication, the whole round globe is now smaller than a small European country was a hundred years ago. #Quote by John Boyd Orr
Country quotes by John C. Calhoun
#79. What we want, above all things on earth in our public men, is independence. It is one great defect in the character of the public men of America that there is that real want of independence; and, in this respect, a most marked contrast exists between public men in this country and in Great Britain. #Quote by John C. Calhoun
Country quotes by Patsy Cline
#80. The one thing I wanted to do more than anything else was sing country music. #Quote by Patsy Cline
Country quotes by Randy Sandke
#81. To date, [Wynton] Marsalis has received a total of nine Grammy Awards; a Pulitzer Prize (the first ever awarded to a jazz musician) ... and twenty-nine honorary degrees, including Columbia, Brown, Princeton and Yale; the National Medal of Arts; and numerous awards from other countries. #Quote by Randy Sandke
Country quotes by George Vecsey
#82. Hockey historians say the handshake dates to English settlers in Canada, who preached an upper-class version of sportsmanship in the 19th century. Soon, tough kids in urban and prairie rinks began imitating imagined dukes and earls of the old country. #Quote by George Vecsey
Country quotes by Douglas Adams
#83. I was once in San Francisco, and I parked in the only available space, which happened to be on the other side of the street. The law descended on me. Was I aware of how dangerous the manoeuvre I'd just made was? I looked at the law a bit blankly. What had I done wrong? I had, said the law, parked against the flow of traffic. Puzzled, I looked up and down the street. What traffic? I asked. The traffic that would be there, said the law, if there was any traffic. This was a bit metaphysical, even for me, so I explained, a bit lamely, that in England we just park wherever we can find a parking space available, and weren't that fussy about which side of the street it was on. He looked at me aghast, as if I was lucky to have got out of a country of such wild and crazy car parkers alive, and promptly gave me a ticket. Clearly he would rather have deported me before my subversive ideas brought chaos and anarchy to streets that normally had to cope with nothing more alarming than a few simple assault rifles. Which, as we know, in the States are perfectly legal, and without which they would be overrun by herds of deer, overbearing government officers, and lawless British tea importers. #Quote by Douglas Adams
Country quotes by Jimmy Carter
#84. To work for better understanding among people, one does not have to be a former president sitting at a fancy conference room table. Peace can be made in the neighborhoods, the living rooms, the playing fields, and the classrooms of our country. #Quote by Jimmy Carter
Country quotes by Candice Millard
#85. Garfield's shooting had also revealed to the American people how vulnerable they were. In the little more than a century since its inception, the United States had become a powerful and respected country. Yet Americans suddenly realized that they still had no real control over their own fate. Not only could they not prevent a tragedy of such magnitude, they couldn't even anticipate it. The course of their lives could be changed in an instant, by a man who did not even understand what he had done. #Quote by Candice Millard
Country quotes by R.S. Grey
#86. I spun a globe in our estate's library and promised myself I'd travel to whichever country my finger landed on. The globe's colors had blended together in a mess of blue and green and then I'd dropped my finger, abruptly stopping its rotation.
Syria.
Er, right. Minor hiccup.
I spun again and voila!

Country quotes by Faith Hill
#87. Country music is the people's music. It just speaks about real life and about truth and it tells things how they really are. #Quote by Faith Hill
Country quotes by Xavier Becerra
#88. If you're saying you should not be allowed in the country, you should be consistent and say that to all immigrants. #Quote by Xavier Becerra
Country quotes by Nanavira Thera
#89. A man may take his own life for many reasons, and it is impossible to make a general statement; but whenever suicide is a gesture - done, that is, to impress or influence or embarrass others - it is always, so it seems to me, a sign of immaturity and muddled thinking. However much we may admire the fortitude of this Vietnamese monk, the wisdom of his action remains very much in doubt. I do not know the details of the provocation offered by the Catholic Head of State, but the monk appears to have killed himself 'fighting for the cause of Buddhism'. Certainly this action is infinitely more honourable than the setting fire to churches and the crowning of statues that seem to be the favoured methods of giving battle in this country; but it does not follow that it is any the less misguided. #Quote by Nanavira Thera
Country quotes by Paul Oakenfold
#90. I am here for 5 days to enjoy myself and rest. Israel is a beautiful country and the audience is full of passion and I enjoy everything there is here. #Quote by Paul Oakenfold
Country quotes by Barbara W. Tuchman
#91. The Englishman, as an American observed, felt himself the best-governed citizen in the world, even when in opposition he believed the incumbents were ruining the country. #Quote by Barbara W. Tuchman
Country quotes by Rodney King
#92. We wouldn't be as far along as a country if we didn't take on some of Martin Luther King's ways that he instilled in us. #Quote by Rodney King
Country quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#93. I have lived through much and now I think I have found what is needed for happiness. A quiet, secluded life in the country with possibility of being useful to people. #Quote by Leo Tolstoy
Country quotes by Ian McClellan
#94. I continued toward Atlanta with a Merle Haggard C.D. playing on the stereo. They weren't great hosts, but those guys in The Ted Kaczynski Fan Club had great taste in music. It was all classic country music- none of that sissy, boy-band country that they played on the radio all the time. I drove down the road while Merle preferred to just stay where he was and drink. #Quote by Ian McClellan
Country quotes by Hugh Downs
#95. This country is a one-party country. Half of it is called Republican and half is called Democrat. It doesn't make any difference. All the really good ideas belong to the Libertarians. #Quote by Hugh Downs
Country quotes by Peter Guralnick
#96. Perkins was doing basically the same sort of thing up around Jackson, and I know for a fact Jerry Lee Lewis had been playing that kind of music ever since he was ten years old. You see, from the honky tonks you got such a mixture of all different types of music, and I think what happened is that when Elvis busted through, it enabled all these other groups that had been going along more or less the same avenue - I'm sure there were hundreds of them - to tighten up and focus on what was going to be popular. If they had a steel guitar they dropped it. The weepers and slow country ballads pretty much went out of their repertoire. And what you had left was country-orientated boogie music. #Quote by Peter Guralnick
Country quotes by Eleanor Roosevelt
#97. This is a strange, little, complacent country [Switzerland], in many ways a USA in miniature but of course nearer the center of disturbance! #Quote by Eleanor Roosevelt
Country quotes by Vandana Shiva
#98. Nobody defines it as something women shouldn't be doing. In a way, there are more mathematicians, more doctors, more scientists in India than there are in this country. We even had a woman head of state, and that's something the United States has yet to catch up with. #Quote by Vandana Shiva
Country quotes by Donal Logue
#99. You can judge a country by the way it treats its prisoners, and you can always judge a show by the way it treats people coming on to do these guest shots. #Quote by Donal Logue
Country quotes by Bram Stoker
#100. Far, far away, there is a beautiful Country which no human eye has ever seen in waking hours. Under the Sunset it lies, where the distant horizon bounds the day, and where the clouds, splendid with light and colour, give a promise of the glory and beauty which encompass it. Sometimes it is given to us to see it in dreams. #Quote by Bram Stoker
Country quotes by Ameen Rihani
#101. I state the threefold purpose of my travels in Arabia: to see the country, to write about it and to be of some service to its people and their cause - that is what brought me from beyond the seas, from America. #Quote by Ameen Rihani
Country quotes by Paul Ryan
#102. Was it a good idea to spend taxpayer dollars on electric cars in Finland, or on windmills in China? Was it a good idea to borrow all this money from countries like China and spend it on all these various different interest groups? #Quote by Paul Ryan
Country quotes by Van Jones
#103. There are only two ways to have a middle class in your country: either you have highly skilled manufacturing jobs, or you have a highly skilled, well trained, knowledge-based workforce. In other words, college. #Quote by Van Jones
Country quotes by Ian Mortimer
#104. W. H. Auden once suggested that to understand your own country you need to have lived in at least two others. One can say something similar for periods of time: to understand your own century you need to have come to terms with at least two others. The key to learning something about the past might be a ruin or an archive but the means whereby we may understand it is
and always will be
ourselves. #Quote by Ian Mortimer
Country quotes by William P. Young
#105. City and country
each has its own beauty and its own pain. Some of the smallness of small towns
cattiness, everybody knowing everybody's business
that can be challenging. And cities can be challenging, because no one can connect except electronically. #Quote by William P. Young
Country quotes by Diana Trilling
#106. In the bad sixties, when drugs came into widespread use among adolescents and when Scarsdale mothers developed the habit of not asking about each others children for fear of what they'd hear, one knew that they were speaking-or not speaking, keeping their unhappy silence-on behalf of stricken motherhood everywhere in the country. #Quote by Diana Trilling
Country quotes by Ramachandra Guha
#107. in India, Bhakti or what may be called the path of devotion or hero-worship, plays a part in its politics unequalled in magnitude by the part it plays in the politics of any other country in the world. Bhakti in religion may be the road to the salvation of a soul. But in politics, Bhakti or hero-worship is a sure road to degradation and to eventual dictatorship. #Quote by Ramachandra Guha
Country quotes by Jon Lee Anderson
#108. Charles Darwin, who had witnessed the
atrocities perpetrated against Argentina's native
Indians by Juan Manuel de Rosas, had predicted
that the country will be in the hands of white
Gaucho savages instead of copper-coloured Indians.
The former being a little superior in education,
as they are inferior in every moral virtue. #Quote by Jon Lee Anderson
Country quotes by Roman Abramovich
#109. In my personal opinion, Russia is no less democratic than it used to be. It is a democratic country. It is democratic enough. #Quote by Roman Abramovich
Country quotes by Charles Kennedy
#110. This country has a proud history of opening its doors to generations of people fleeing personal persecution, civil unrest and war. #Quote by Charles Kennedy

Country quotes by Jacques Chirac
#112. You cannot trust people who have such bad cuisine. It [Great Britain] is the country with the worst food after Finland. #Quote by Jacques Chirac
Country quotes by Nadia Hashimi
#113. Shekiba was born at the turn of the twentieth century, in an Afghanistan eyed lasciviously by Russia and Britain. Each would take turns promising to protect the borders they had just invaded, like a pedophile who professes to love his victim.
The borders between Afghanistan and India were drawn and redrawn from time to time, as if only penciled in. People belonged to one country and then the other, nationalities changing as often as the direction of the wind. For Great Britain and the Soviet Union, Afghanistan was the playing field for their "Great Game," the power struggle to control Central Asia. But the game was slowly coming to an end, the Afghan people ferociously resisting outside control. Chests expanded with pride when Afghans talked about their resilience.
But parts of Afghanistan were taken - little by little until its borders shrank in like a wool sweater left in the rain. Areas to the north like Samarkand and Bukhara had been lost to the Russian Empire. Chunks of the south were chipped away and the western front was pushed in over the years. #Quote by Nadia Hashimi
Country quotes by Anna Quindlen
#114. You gotta love a country where there are rules for being poor, and rich people make them. #Quote by Anna Quindlen
Country quotes by Spider Robinson
#115. Patriotism does not mean that you think your country is perfect, or blameless, or even particularly likeable on balance; nor does it mean that you serve it blindly, go where it tells you to go and kill whom it tells you to kill. It means that you are committed to keeping it alive and making it better, that you will do whatever seems necessary (up to and including dying) to protect it whenever you, personally, perceive a mortal threat to it, military or otherwise. #Quote by Spider Robinson
Country quotes by Gordon Brown
#116. I have just accepted the invitation of Her Majesty The Queen to form a Government. This will be a new Government with new priorities and I have been privileged to have been granted the great opportunity to serve my country and at all times I will be strong in purpose, steadfast in will, resolute in action in the service of what matters to the British people, meeting the concerns and aspirations of our whole country. #Quote by Gordon Brown
Country quotes by Narendra Modi
#117. A nation with a strong defence industry will not only be more secure. It will also reap rich economic benefits - it can boost investment, expand manufacturing, support enterprise, raise the technology level and increase economic growth in the country. #Quote by Narendra Modi
Country quotes by John Ratzenberger

Country quotes by Stef Wertheimer
#120. We have a few young people who are very successful in it, and this gives us the wrong impression that the whole country can live off high tech. #Quote by Stef Wertheimer
Country quotes by Herbert Croly
#121. Our country was thereby saved from the consequences of its distracting individualistic conception of democracy, and its merely legal conception of nationality. It was because the followers of Jackson and Douglas did fight for it, that the Union was preserved. #Quote by Herbert Croly
Country quotes by Ellen Barkin
#122. With all of the divisiveness that is going on in the country we live in, so much of it is based around just fear of the other. And anyone who does not look like me, walk like me, talk like me, have sex like me, they're the other and I'm afraid of them. And hopefully we will learn that it's just not scary. There's nothing to be afraid of. #Quote by Ellen Barkin
Country quotes by Mark Felt
#123. The family believes that my grandfather, Mark Felt Sr., is a great American hero who went well above and beyond the call of duty at much risk to himself to save his country from a horrible injustice. We all sincerely hope the country will see him this way as well. #Quote by Mark Felt
Country quotes by Alain De Botton
#124. Why be seduced by something as small as a front door in another country? Why fall in love with a place because it has trams and its people seldom have curtains in their homes? However absurd the intense reactions provoked by such small (and mute) foreign elements may seem, the pattern is at least familiar from our personal lives. There, too, we may find ourselves anchoring emotions of love on the way a person butters his or her bread, or recoiling at his or her taste in shoes. To condemn ourselves for these minute concerns is to ignore how rich in meaning details may be. #Quote by Alain De Botton
Country quotes by Arthur Balfour
#125. His Majesty's Government views with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, and will use their best endeavours to facilitate the achievement of this object, it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine, or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country. #Quote by Arthur Balfour
Country quotes by Mark M. Bello
#126. If you and Marcus were white, maybe the country is just as pissed as you are. But knowing that it's wrong doesn't make it any less true. #Quote by Mark M. Bello
Country quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
#127. They looted your public and corporate treasuries, and turned your industries over to nincompoops," he said. "Then they had your Government borrow so heavily from us that we had no choice but to send over an Army of Occupation in business suits. Never before has the Ruling Class of a country found a way to stick other countries with all the responsibilities their wealth might imply, and still remain rich beyond the dreams of avarice! No wonder they thought the comatose Ronald Reagan was a great President! #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut
Country quotes by Gloria Golden
#128. Although some Jews "traveled by donkey," the Jews of Spain, for the most part, walked out of their country. These refugees were the "scholars, the sons and daughters of families who had served their monarchs . . . shoemakers, tanners, butchers, the old, the pregnant, [and] the young."6 #Quote by Gloria Golden
Country quotes by Dmitry Medvedev
#129. My main ambition is to be of use to my country and my people. #Quote by Dmitry Medvedev
Country quotes by Swami Vivekananda
#130. There is no chance for the welfare of the world unless the condition of woman is improved. It is not possible for a bird to fly on only one wing.
There is no hope for that family or country where there is no estimation of women, where they live in sadness. For this reason, they have to be raised first. #Quote by Swami Vivekananda
Country quotes by Robert E. Howard
#131. In the hill country, civilization steals in last, and the people retain much of the crude but vigorous mode of expression of the colonial days and earlier. #Quote by Robert E. Howard
Country quotes by Dan Skinner
#132. Men have sacrificed so much for their beliefs. Country. Kings. Queens. Political systems. God. Love . It doesn't seem very noble to simply let something you believe in, someone you love, just walk away. To give up without a fight. #Quote by Dan Skinner
Country quotes by Robert T. Kiyosaki
#133. It is this entitlement mentality that is eroding the foundations this country was built upon. The "entitlement mentality" is bringing down the American empire and the world. #Quote by Robert T. Kiyosaki
Country quotes by Gore Vidal
#134. So here they are, trying to get us into the army again to get us to fight in Europe, but the country is isolationist. One of the reasons why the world has been demonized is because they had to do it. The average American is an isolationist. #Quote by Gore Vidal
Country quotes by Bram Stoker
#135. Then a dog began to howl somewhere in a farmhouse far down the road, a long, agonized wailing, as if from fear. The sound was taken up by another dog, and then another and another, till, borne on the wind which now sighed softly through the Pass, a wild howling began, which seemed to come from all over the country, as far as the imagination could grasp it through the gloom of the night. #Quote by Bram Stoker
Country quotes by Stone Gossard
#136. A significant event for me was learning Hank Williams, reconnecting with his music's simplicity, which inspired me to inhabit the same territory. It's different, because I grew up on Led Zeppelin, The Stooges and punk, so in that sense I'm mutating country and folk more than a few degrees. #Quote by Stone Gossard
Country quotes by Laila Ibrahim
#137. This country was founded with the understanding that we shall be allowed to hold slaves. It was a condition of the formation. That shall not change regardless of the rhetoric coming from the North. #Quote by Laila Ibrahim
Country quotes by Nicholas D. Kristof
#138. Americans have called on moderates in Muslim countries to speak out against extremists, to stand up for the tolerance they say they believe in. We should all have the guts do the same at home. #Quote by Nicholas D. Kristof
Country quotes by Mark Twain
#139. So far as I am able to judge, nothing has been left undone, either by man or nature, to make India the most extraordinary country that the sun visits on his rounds. Nothing seems to have been forgotten, nothing overlooked. #Quote by Mark Twain
Country quotes by Pramoedya Ananta Toer
#140. I've often heard people say, "Your country is beautiful, a virtual paradise." When will the people of Indonesia be as beautiful as their land, with a civilization and culture that contributes to the greater beauty of humankind and no longer smothers and strangles the mind? #Quote by Pramoedya Ananta Toer
Country quotes by Jim Rogers
#141. If the current birth rate, which is the lowest in the major developed countries, continues, there will be no Japanese. Who will pay the enormous debt? #Quote by Jim Rogers
Country quotes by Angelina Jolie
#142. I had a lovely experience once in Africa working with the UN when a president of a country met me about refugee issues and said 'What do you do?' I said 'I'm an actor.' He replied 'I heard that was a very difficult job and might not be the smartest job to do.' It was lovely. #Quote by Angelina Jolie
Country quotes by Marcus Tullius Cicero
#143. Patria est communis omnium parens.
Our country is the common parent of all. #Quote by Marcus Tullius Cicero
Country quotes by Susanna Clarke
#144. I reached out my hand, England's rivers turned and flowed the other way...
I reached out my hand, my enemies's blood stopt in their veins...
I reached out my hand; thought and memory flew out of my enemies' heads like a flock of starlings;
My enemies crumpled like empty sacks.
I came to them out of mists and rain;
I came to them in dreams at midnight;
I came to them in a flock of ravens that filled a northern sky at dawn;
When they thought themselves safe I came to them in a cry that broke the silence of a winter wood...

The rain made a door for me and I went through it;
The stones made a throne for me and I sat upon it;
Three kingdoms were given to me to be mine forever;
England was given to me to be mine forever.
The nameless slave wore a silver crown;
The nameless slave was a king in a strange country...

The weapons that my enemies raised against me are venerated in Hell as holy relics;
Plans that my enemies made against me are preserved as holy texts;
Blood that I shed upon ancient battlefields is scraped from the stained earth by Hell's sacristans and placed in a vessel of silver and ivory.
I gave magic to England, a valuable inheritance
But Englishmen have despised my gift
Magic shall be written upon the sky by the rain but they shall not be able to read it;
Magic shall be written on the faces of the stony hills but their minds shall not be able to contain it; #Quote by Susanna Clarke
Country quotes by Ken Follett
#145. In every country, those who were against war had been overruled. The Austrians had attacked Serbia when they might have held back; the Russians had mobilized instead of negotiating; the Germans had refused to attend an international conference to settle the issue; the French had been offered the chance to remain neutral and had spurned it; and now the British were about to join in when they might easily have remained on the sidelines. #Quote by Ken Follett
Country quotes by Jack London
#146. When a man journeys into a far country, he must be prepared to forget many of the things he has learned, and to acquire such customs as are inherent with existence in the new land; he must abandon the old ideals and the old gods, and oftentimes he must reverse the very codes by which his conduct has hitherto been shaped. #Quote by Jack London
Country quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#147. All I want to say, with the utmost emphasis at my command, is that the description of India as a military country is wrong. #Quote by Mahatma Gandhi
Country quotes by Laozi
#148. See others as yourself. See families as your family. See towns as your town. See countries as your country. See worlds as your world. #Quote by Laozi
Country quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#149. Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just. #Quote by Thomas Jefferson
Country quotes by Lindy West
#150. This is just a wacky idea I had, but maybe it's not a coincidence that, in a country where half the population's normal reproductive functions are stigmatized, American uterus- and vagina-havers are still fighting tooth and nail to have those same reproductive systems fully covered by the health insurance that we pay for. #Quote by Lindy West
Country quotes by Blake Shelton
#151. Country music has to evolve in order to survive. #Quote by Blake Shelton
Country quotes by Georgette Heyer
#152. I was under the impression that I warned you that in London country ways will not do, Frederica!"
"You did!" she retorted. "And although I can't say that I paid much heed to your advice it so happens that I am accompanied today by my aunt!"
"Who adds invisibility to her other accomplishments! #Quote by Georgette Heyer
Country quotes by George W. Bush
#153. [W]e're creating ... an ownership society in this country, where more Americans than ever will be able to open up their door where they live and say, welcome to my house, welcome to my piece of property. #Quote by George W. Bush
Country quotes by Francine Rivers
#154. Have you ever been to the beach and wanted to feed the seagulls? The problem is you tear off a little crust from your sandwich and toss it to one, and ten more show up. Toss a little more and a flock descends. You start to wonder: if I run out of bread, will I become the meal?
Turkeys are different. They startle easily and run for the barn. In the wild, they run for the hills. Of course, they're very tasty. Benjamin Franklin thought them majestic enough to be an emblem for our country. I'm sorry, but Thanksgiving would be downright depressing. There's our national symbol lying stuffed and roasted and ready to carve up for hungry guests.
And then we have the eagles. Our forefathers were trained in the Bible. […]They would have known Isaiah 40:31. "Those who wait upon the Lord will gain new strength; they will mount up with wings like eagles, they will run and not get tired, they will walk and not become weary." They were making war on the greatest power in the world of the time; the world was watching them. What could this band of commoners do?
What troubles me about our country today is how many seagulls there are, scrambling for more. Remember the movie "Finding Nemo"? "Mine, mine, mine!" And we sure have a lot of gutless turkeys running for the barn whenever hard decisions have to be made; like how to keep our country solvent so our children won't be in soup lines…
Where are the eagles? That's what I want to know. Please, God, we need us some eagles! #Quote by Francine Rivers
Country quotes by Theodore Roosevelt
#155. This country will not be a good place for any of us to live in unless we make it a good place for all of us to live in. #Quote by Theodore Roosevelt
Country quotes by Pope Francis
#156. Europe has discarded its children. A bit triumphantly. I remember that when I was studying in one country the clinics that did abortions then prepared everything to send it to cosmetic factories. Makeup made with the blood of innocents. And this was something to brag about, because it was progressive. #Quote by Pope Francis
Country quotes by B.R. Ambedkar
#157. Under the rule of the Peshwas in the Maratha country,11 the Untouchable was not allowed to use the public streets if a Hindu was coming along, lest he should pollute the Hindu by his shadow. The Untouchable was required to have a black thread either on his wrist or around his neck, as a sign or a mark to prevent the Hindus from getting themselves polluted by his touch by mistake. In Poona, the capital of the Peshwa, the Untouchable was required to carry, strung from his waist, a broom to sweep away from behind himself the dust he trod on, lest a Hindu walking on the same dust should be polluted. In Poona, the Untouchable was required to carry an earthen pot hung around his neck wherever he went - for holding his spit, lest his spit falling on the earth should pollute a Hindu who might unknowingly happen to tread on it. #Quote by B.R. Ambedkar
Country quotes by Willie Nelson
#158. A lot of country music is sad. I think most art comes out of poverty and hard times. It applies to music. Three chords and the truth - that's what a country song is. There is a lot of heartache in the world. #Quote by Willie Nelson
Country quotes by Godfrey Hounsfield
#159. Apart from my work, my greatest pleasures have been mainly out-of-doors, and although I no longer ski, I greatly enjoy walking in the mountains and leading country rambles. I am fond of music, whether light or classical, and play the piano in a self-taught way. In company, I enjoy lively, way-out discussions. #Quote by Godfrey Hounsfield
Country quotes by Margaret Thatcher
#160. In the Conservative Party we have no truck with outmoded Marxist doctrine about class warfare. For us it is not who you are, who your family is or where you come from that matters, but what you are and what you can do for your country that counts. #Quote by Margaret Thatcher
Country quotes by Wallace Shawn
#161. Patriotism is considered to be an emotion a person ought to feel. But why? Why is it nobler to love your own country than to love someone else's? #Quote by Wallace Shawn
Country quotes by Jay Inslee
#162. We need to get our sons and daughters home and their responsibility for the security of Iraq needs to be assumed by Iraqis who will stand up and toe the line for their countries. #Quote by Jay Inslee

#163. It seems almost incredible, how far we can drive in a country so small, without ever really reaching anywhere. #Quote by Sara Baume
Country quotes by John Lawson
#164. The Indians, I was now speaking of, were not content with the common Enemies that lessen and destroy their Country-men, but invented an infallible Stratagem to purge their Tribe, and reduce their Multitude into far less Numbers. #Quote by John Lawson
Country quotes by Alex Morgan
#165. It's a section of the country where charm oozes from the men as easily as their southern drawls, and the women are soaked in seduction. #Quote by Alex Morgan
Country quotes by Peter S. Beagle
#166. The spaciousness of it astounds me; this is the kind of country you dream of running away to when you are very young and innocently hungry, before you learn that all land is owned by somebody, that you can get arrested for swinging through trees in a loincloth, and that you were born either too late or too poor for everything you want to do. #Quote by Peter S. Beagle
Country quotes by Sarah Brady
#167. The House passage of our bill is a victory for this country! Common sense wins out. I'm just so thrilled and excited. The sale of guns must stop. Halfway measures are not enough. #Quote by Sarah Brady
Country quotes by Donald Verrilli Jr.
#168. There was this point about, you know, the basic point there as well - this statute treats some parts of the country different from others, and what's the justification for that? Well, you know, I had eight million things to say about that, but he put it in such a sharp, excruciating way that it was just very hard to handle it effectively. #Quote by Donald Verrilli Jr.
Country quotes by Dilip Kumar
#169. India means everything to me. It is my homeland. India is my country. It is here that I have gotten love and affection as a film star from millions and millions of my fans over the last five decades. #Quote by Dilip Kumar
Country quotes by Winston Churchill
#170. A study of Disease-of Pestilences methodically prepared and deliberately launched upon man and beast-is certainly being pursue in the laboratories of more than one great country. Blight to destroy crops, Anthrax to slay horses and cattle, Plague to poison not armies but whole districts - such are the lines along which military science is remorselessly advancing. #Quote by Winston Churchill
Country quotes by Laura Bush
#171. I think disease and all the things that we treat are tied to national security in a lot of ways that we maybe don't realize or that the American people don't realize. If other countries have a chance to be stable, then that helps us. If there are ways we can prevent if there are ways we can help other countries defeat diseases, we're about to totally eradicate polio. And can you imagine? That would be so terrific. #Quote by Laura Bush
Country quotes by Anonymous
#172. The Catholic Church also opposes any effort to make it easier to deport children; last week, the archbishop of Chicago, Cardinal Francis E. George, said he had offered facilities in his diocese to house some of the children, and on Monday, bishops in Dallas and Fort Worth called for lawyers to volunteer to represent the children at immigration proceedings. "We have to put our money where our mouth is in this country," said Kevin Appleby, the director of migration policy for the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. "We tell other countries to protect human rights and accept refugees, but when we get a crisis on our border, we don't know how to respond." Republicans have rejected calls by Democrats for $2.7 billion in funds to respond to the crisis, demanding changes in immigration law to make it easier to send children back to Central America. And while President Obama says he is open to some changes, many Democrats have opposed them, and Congress is now deadlocked. #Quote by Anonymous
Country quotes by Che Guevara
#173. Each time a country is freed, we say, it is a defeat for the world imperialist system, but we must agree that real liberation or breaking away from the imperialist system is not achieved by the mere act of proclaiming independence or winning an armed victory in a revolution. Freedom is achieved when imperialist economic domination over a people is brought to an end. #Quote by Che Guevara
Country quotes by Sebastien De Castell
#174. What if I'd never found her? What if Patriana had managed to kill all your so-called 'Charoites'? And who in all the hells calls their bastards 'Charoites' anyway? Was it really that important to make sure I had no damned idea what you'd sent me to do? What about the other Greatcoats? Are they all wandering the country trying to make sense of the last command you gave each of them? #Quote by Sebastien De Castell
Country quotes by Thomas S. Monson
#175. Balanced service is a virtue to be cherished. There is to be time in our life to serve God, to serve our family, to serve our country and community, to serve our employer. Wise persons budget available time so that no significant area of one's life falls into a state of neglect. #Quote by Thomas S. Monson
Country quotes by James Monroe
#176. At no period of our political existence had we so much cause to felicitate ourselves at the prosperous and happy condition of our country. #Quote by James Monroe

#177. We all have the same dream, my grandmother says. To live equal in a country that's supposed to be the land of the free. She lets out a long breath, deep remembering. #Quote by Jacqueline Woodson
Country quotes by Harry S. Truman
#178. Canadian-American relations for many years did not develop spontaneously. The example of accord provided by our two countries did not come about merely through the happy circumstance of geography. It is compounded of one part proximity and nine parts good will and common sense. #Quote by Harry S. Truman
Country quotes by Ayọ̀bámi Adébáyọ̀
#179. It would take a while for me to realise that each of my children had given me as much as they took. My memories of them, bittersweet and constant, were as powerful as a physical presence. And because of that, as a bus bore me into the heart of a city I did not know, while my last child was dying in Lagos and the country was unraveling, I was not afraid because I was not alone. #Quote by Ayọ̀bámi Adébáyọ̀
Country quotes by Bernie Sanders
#180. I have a lot of respect for President Obama. I consider him a friend. I disagree with him on issues like the extension of tax breaks that Bush initiated. But I think history will judge a President Obama a lot better than many other contemporaries, given the fact that he came into office at a time when this country was in terrible, terrible shape. #Quote by Bernie Sanders
Country quotes by Gabriela Isler

#182. We have a lot of goodness in this country. And we should promote it, but never through the barrel of a gun. We should do it by setting good standards, motivating people and have them want to emulate us. But you can't enforce our goodness, like the neocons preach, with an armed force. It doesn't work. #Quote by Ron Paul
Country quotes by Anne Frank
#183. Who has inflicted this upon us? Who has made us Jews different from all other people? Who has allowed us to suffer so terribly up till now? It is God that has made us as we are, but it will be God, too, who will raise us up again. If we bear all this suffering and if there are still Jews left, when it is over, then Jews, instead of being doomed, will be held up as an example. Who knows, it might even be our religion from which the world and all peoples learn good, and for that reason and that reason alone do we have to suffer now. We can never become just Netherlanders, or just English, or representatives of any country for that matter; we will always remain Jews, but we want to, too. #Quote by Anne Frank
Country quotes by George Santayana
#184. It is right to prefer our own country to all others, because we are children and citizens before we can be travellers or philosophers. #Quote by George Santayana
Country quotes by Nicola Sturgeon
#185. This is about sending a very strong message that Scotland does want to stay in the European Union and we're an open country, a good place to live, work, study and to do business and it's really important as we take forward what will be challenging work ahead of us, that we send those messages. #Quote by Nicola Sturgeon
Country quotes by Joseph F. Girzone
#186. I think most decent people would be horrified at what happens today, even in our enlightened country. There are still mean, self-righteous Pharisees, who have a sick need to punish others whose troubled lives they can never begin to understand, much less feel compassion for. #Quote by Joseph F. Girzone
Country quotes by Ta-Nehisi Coates
#187. What I told you is what your grandparents tried to tell me: that this is your country, that this is your world, that this is your body, and you must find some way to live within the all of it. I #Quote by Ta-Nehisi Coates
Country quotes by Lin Yutang
#188. How many of us are able to distinguish between the odors of noon and midnight, or of winter and summer, or of a windy spell and a still one? If man is so generally less happy in the cities than in the country, it is because all these variations and nuances of sight and smell and sound are less clearly marked and lost in the general monotony of gray walls and cement pavements. #Quote by Lin Yutang
Country quotes by Lee Child
#189. They all shared Stan's personal allegiance to the famous old saying: War is not about dying for your country. It's about making the other guy die for his. #Quote by Lee Child
Country quotes by Peter Jenkins
#190. Mileage craziness is a serious condition that exists in many forms. It can hit unsuspecting travelers while driving cars, motorcycles, riding in planes, crossing the country on bicycles or on foot. The symptoms may lead to obsessively placing more importance on how many miles are traveled than on the real reason for the traveling ... On foot, in a van, on a fleet motorcycle or on a bicycle, a person must be very careful not to become overly concerned with arriving. #Quote by Peter Jenkins
Country quotes by Bill Viola
#191. One of the most important things for me in terms of my working method is doubt. I get very insecure about my ideas. And I don't say 'insecure' in kind of a paranoid way. I mean just: 'Are they good enough?' 'Is this the right thing to do?' I really beat myself up over that. #Quote by Bill Viola
Country quotes by Patricia Highsmith
#192. I prefer to live in the country where it's quiet. Woody Allen movies there are dubbed into Italian. #Quote by Patricia Highsmith
Country quotes by Anthony Trollope
#193. Is it not singular how some men continue to obtain the reputation of popular authorship without adding a word to the literature of their country worthy of note?? To puff and to get one's self puffed have become different branches of a new profession. #Quote by Anthony Trollope
Country quotes by Bernie Sanders
#194. Vermonters often ask me whether I am pessimistic about the future of our country. My honest answer is that I am not. #Quote by Bernie Sanders
Country quotes by Blake Mycoskie
#195. I am a big believer in the value of traveling while you are young. The experiences you have in other countries can inspire greatness. #Quote by Blake Mycoskie
Country quotes by Ronald Reagan
#196. The glory of this land has been its capacity for transcending the moral evils of our past. For example, the long struggle of minority citizens for equal rights, once a source of disunity and civil war, is now a point of pride for all Americans. We must never go back. There is no room for racism, anti-Semitism, or other forms of ethnic and racial hatred in this country. #Quote by Ronald Reagan
Country quotes by Robertson Davies
#197. Canada has one of the highest rates of insanity in any civilized country and one reason might be that life in many places is so desperately dull. #Quote by Robertson Davies
Country quotes by Jack Scalia

Country quotes by Narendra Modi
#200. If our country has to reach its economic goals, it cannot happen with half its population shut behind doors. #Quote by Narendra Modi
