Crisis quotes by Francis Fukuyama
#1. Interest groups exercise influence way out of proportion to their place in society, distort both taxes and spending, and raise overall deficit levels through their ability to manipulate the budget in their favor. They also undermine the quality of public administration as a result of the multiple and often contradictory mandates they induce Congress to support. All of this has led to a crisis of representation, in which ordinary people feel their supposedly democratic government no longer truly reflects their interests but is under the control of a variety of shadowy elites. What is ironic and peculiar is that this crisis in representativeness has occurred in part because of reforms designed to make the system more democratic. #Quote by Francis Fukuyama
Crisis quotes by Ronald Reagan
#2. In a world wracked by hatred, economic crisis, and political tension, America remains mankind's best hope. #Quote by Ronald Reagan
Crisis quotes by Dmitry Medvedev
#3. Unsolvable problems do not exist. Any crisis is a combination of specific tasks to be worked on. The government has the experience and reserves to overcome the economic downturn #Quote by Dmitry Medvedev
Crisis quotes by Fennel Hudson
#4. There's no point pretending to be someone or something we're not. #Quote by Fennel Hudson
Crisis quotes by Calvin Trillin
#5. The existential paradox we all experience; we feel that we are immortal, yet we know that we will die. #Quote by Calvin Trillin
Crisis quotes by H.P. Lovecraft
#6. No death, no doom, no anguish can arouse the surpassing despair which flows from a loss of identity.
- Through the Gates of the Silver Key #Quote by H.P. Lovecraft
Crisis quotes by Jacqui Stedmon
#7. Narratives are the primary way in which we make sense of our lives, as opposed to, for example schema,cognition, beliefs, constructs. Definition of narrative include the important element of giving meaning to events and experiences over time by connecting them as a developing, continuing story. #Quote by Jacqui Stedmon
Crisis quotes by William C. Brown
#8. Only eliminating all pains in the ass the real mild and gentle man can live in peace. #Quote by William C. Brown
Crisis quotes by David Harvey
#9. The management of the New York fiscal crisis pioneered the way for neoliberal practices both domestically under Reagan and internationally through the IMF (international monetary fund) in the 1980s. It established the principle that in the event of a conflict between the integrity of financial institutions , on one hand , and the well-being of the citizens on the other, the former was to be privileged .it emphasized that the role of the government was to create a good business climate rather than look to the needs and well-being of the popualtion at large. #Quote by David Harvey
Crisis quotes by Frantz Fanon
#10. You know full well we are exploiters. You know full well we have taken the gold and minerals and then oil from the "new continents," and shipped them back to the old metropolises. Not without excellent results in the shape of palaces, cathedrals, and centers of industry; and then when crisis loomed, the colonial markets were there to cushion the blow or divert it. Stuffed with wealth, Europe granted humanity de jure to all its inhabitants: for us, a man means an accomplice, for we have all profited from colonial exploitation. #Quote by Frantz Fanon
Crisis quotes by Bernie Sanders
#11. The details of what the Fed did were kept secret until a provision in the Dodd-Frank Act that I sponsored required the Government Accountability Office to audit the Fed's lending programs during the financial crisis. #Quote by Bernie Sanders
Crisis quotes by Derek Hough
#12. AN ALKALINE DIET

The pH level measures how acid or alkaline something is. Your blood is slightly alkaline, with a pH between 7.35 and 7.45, and your stomach is very acidic, with a pH of 3.5 or below, so it can break down food. Most of the foods we eat release either an acid or an alkaline base in the blood. Acidified body cells become weak, which can lead to unhealthy conditions and diseases. They are robbed of the oxygen and energy needed to support a strong and healthy immune system.
I incorporate alkaline foods into my diet every day, and I feel like my energy is soaring. Food literally acts like a battery for the body. Every living thing on this planet is made up of energy, and this includes your food. This energy can be measured in megahertz. Chocolate cake only provides 1 to 3 MHz of energy, while raw almonds have 40 to 50 MHz and green vegetables have 70 to 90 MHz. So if you need 70 MHz of energy on a daily basis to function and you live off junk food and soda, you are creating an energy-deficit crisis in your body.
People say it's expensive to eat healthily. Here's how I see it: you're going to pay either way. Either you're going to pay now for the good foods and feel alive and have a clear mind. Or you'll save some money now and pay for medicine and hospital bills later. I used to make excuses: I'm getting older, that's why I feel so tired all the time. But now I know it doesn't have to be that way. You have to make the conscious decision to nour #Quote by Derek Hough
Crisis quotes by Max H. Bazerman
#13. Consider the recent financial crisis and its link to faulty reward systems. President Bill Clinton's objective of increasing homeownership by rewarding potential home buyers and lenders is one example. The Clinton administration "went to ridiculous lengths" to increase homeownership in the United State, promoting "paper-thin down payments" and pushing lenders to give mortgage loans to unqualified buyers according to Business Week editor Peter Coy. #Quote by Max H. Bazerman
Crisis quotes by Margaret Mead
#14. Women should be permitted to volunteer for non-combat service, [ ... ] We have no real way of knowing whether the kinds of training that teach men both courage and restraint would be adaptable to women or effective in a crisis. But the evidence of history and comparative studies of other species suggest that women as a fighting body might be far less amenable to the rules that prevent war from becoming a massacre and, with the use of modern weapons, that protect the survival of all humanity. That is what I meant by saying that women in combat might be too fierce. #Quote by Margaret Mead
Crisis quotes by Russell Brand
#15. Because I have a program of recovery I recognize that I must when in crisis:
1. Acknowledge it.
2. Believe it could improve.
3. Ask for help. #Quote by Russell Brand
Crisis quotes by Karen Swallow Prior
#16. Nothing defined the latter half of England's Victorian age more than the way in which Darwin's claims shook the collective faith of Victorian society. The cataclysmic effect of Darwin's ideas on his society is described by historians as a crisis of faith that turned the once-hopeful period into an "age of anxiety" and an "age of doubt." The years surrounding the publication of Darwin's work are the narrow gate through which the age of belief passed into the age of unbelief, not only for England but for the entire Western world within the shockingly brief period of one generation. #Quote by Karen Swallow Prior
Crisis quotes by Lidia Yuknavitch
#17. Who are we in moments of crisis or despair? Do we become deeper, truer selves, or lift up and away from a self, untethered from regular meanings like moths suddenly drawn toward heat or light? Are we better people when someone might be dying, and if so, why? Are we weaker, or stronger? Are we beautiful, or abject? Serious, or cartoon? Do we secretly long for death to remind us we are alive? #Quote by Lidia Yuknavitch
Crisis quotes by Anonymous
#18. 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
Crisis quotes by Wendell Berry
#19. A crowd whose discontent has risen no higher than the level of slogans is only a crowd. But a crowd that understands the reasons for its discontent and knows the remedies is a vital community, and it will have to be reckoned with. I would rather go before the government with two people who have a competent understanding of an issue, and who therefore deserve a hearing, than with two thousand who are vaguely dissatisfied.
But even the most articulate public protest is not enough. We don't live in the government or in institutions or in our public utterances and acts, and the environmental crisis has its roots in our lives. By the same token, environmental health will also be rooted in our lives. That is, I take it, simply a fact, and in the light of it we can see how superficial and foolish we would be to think that we could correct what is wrong merely by tinkering with the institutional machinery. The changes that are required are fundamental changes in the way we are living. #Quote by Wendell Berry
Crisis quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#20. The greatest fear that human beings experience is not death, which is inevitable, but consideration of the distinct possibility of living a worthless life. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Crisis quotes by John Ortberg
#21. We do not need answers or formulas to minister in crisis. #Quote by John Ortberg
Crisis quotes by Paul Yingling
#22. The intellectual and moral failures common to America's general officer corps in Vietnam and Iraq constitute a crisis in American generalship. Any explanation that fixes culpability on individuals is insufficient. No one leader, civilian or military, caused failure in Vietnam or Iraq. Different military and civilian leaders in the two conflicts produced similar results. In both conflicts, the general officer corps designed to advise policymakers, prepare forces and conduct operations failed to perform its intended functions. #Quote by Paul Yingling
Crisis quotes by John Haggai
#23. The leader demonstrates confidence that the challenge can be met, the need resolved, the crisis overcome. #Quote by John Haggai
Crisis quotes by Noam Chomsky
#24. One of the most interesting reactions to come out of 1968 was in the first publication of the Trilateral Commission, which believed there was a 'crisis of democracy' from too much participation of the masses. #Quote by Noam Chomsky
Crisis quotes by Karen Chance
#25. Take them off!" I told him, grabbing the front of his jeans. "Take everything off!"
"I'm trying!"
"Try harder! #Quote by Karen Chance
Crisis quotes by Rudolf Karl Bultmann
#26. When reason has followed its road to the end, the point of crisis is reached and man is brought to the great question mark over his own existence. #Quote by Rudolf Karl Bultmann
Crisis quotes by Naomi Klein
#27. The Marshall Plan was the ultimate weapon deployed on this economic front. After the war, the German economy was in crisis, threatening to bring down the rest of Western Europe. Meanwhile, so many Germans were drawn to socialism that the U.S. government opted to split Germany into two parts rather than risk losing it all, either to collapse or to the left. In West Germany, the U.S. government used the Marshall Plan to build a capitalist system that was not meant to create fast and easy new markets for Ford and Sears but, rather, to be so successful on its own terms that Europe's market economy would thrive and socialism would be drained of its appeal. #Quote by Naomi Klein
Crisis quotes by Krista Ritchie
#28. I know there may be a point where a crisis in my family may conflict with whatever's happening in your life – and you're not going to like who I choose."
"You're going to choose your family because that's who you are," Farrow says strongly. "And I will love you for it. #Quote by Krista Ritchie
Crisis quotes by Juan Enriquez
#29. The housing crisis may not be the worst thing that's happened to New York City because it was becoming impossible for some of the young doctors, for some of the young artists, for some of the people that make the city so special to be able to live here. #Quote by Juan Enriquez
Crisis quotes by Mark Fisher
#30. [I]t is a mistake to rush to impose the individual ethical responsibility that the corporate structure deflects. This is the temptation of the ethical which, as Zizek has argued, the capitalist system is using in order to protect itself in the wake of the credit crisis - the blame will be put on supposedly pathological individuals, those' abusing the system', rather than on the system itself. But the evasion is actually a two step procedure - since structure will often be invoked (either implicitly or openly) precisely at the point when there is the possibility of individuals who belong to the corporate structure being punished. At this point, suddenly, the causes of abuse or atrocity are so systemic, so diffuse, that no individual can be held responsible… But this impasse - it is only individuals that can be held ethically responsible for actions, and yet the cause of these abuses and errors is corporate, systemic - is not only a dissimulation: it precisely indicates what is lacking in capitalism. What agencies are capable of regulating and controlling impersonal structures? How is it possible to chastise a corporate structure? Yes, corporations can legally be treated as individuals - but the problem is that corporations, whilst certainly entities, are not like individual humans, and any analogy between punishing corporations and punishing individuals will therefore necessarily be poor. And it is not as if corporations are the deep-level agents behind everything; they are th #Quote by Mark Fisher
Crisis quotes by Jeffrey L. Campbell
#31. The Impossible Dream": The song I hear in my head whenever life throws me a major crisis. #Quote by Jeffrey L. Campbell
Crisis quotes by Oswald Chambers
#32. There are stages in life when there is no storm, no crisis, when we do our human best; it is when a crisis arises that we instantly reveal upon whom we rely. If we have been learning to worship God and to trust Him, the crisis will reveal that we will go to the breaking point and not break in our confidence in Him. #Quote by Oswald Chambers
Crisis quotes by Rosemary Radford Ruether
#33. Women must see that there can be no liberation for them and no solution to the ecological crisis within a society whose fundamental model of relationships continues to be one of domination. They must unite the demands of the women's movement with those of the ecological movement to envision a radical reshaping of the basic socioeconomic relations and the underlying values of this [modern industrial] society. #Quote by Rosemary Radford Ruether
Crisis quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#34. The most fortunate of us all in our journey through life frequently meet with calamities and misfortunes which greatly afflict us. To fortify our minds against the attacks of these calamities and misfortunes should be one of the principal studies and endeavors of our lives. #Quote by Thomas Jefferson
Crisis quotes by Alan Garner
#35. From my differing awareness, I sense something you may not yet. Especially among artists...resistance is growing. Conciousness is on the move. Something is at work in the world: a general recognition of the crisis of the spirit, of the banal and shoddy, in human affairs. It is universal and it must be met. Recently, an Australian Aboriginal shaman warned me: 'The Great Serpent has woken. Jarapiri stirs. The earth shakes. And the warriors are gathering. #Quote by Alan Garner
Crisis quotes by Oprah Winfrey
#36. You get to know who you really are in a crisis. #Quote by Oprah Winfrey
Crisis quotes by Barbara W. Tuchman
#37. Enormity of the stakes became the new self-hypnosis. #Quote by Barbara W. Tuchman
Crisis quotes by Anthony Marais
#38. Identity seems to be non-existent at a personal level - at best we can end up in a minority, and those who discuss it most are just those people who are aware of its absence in themselves. #Quote by Anthony Marais
Crisis quotes by Michelle Alexander
#39. This view, while understandable, given the sensational media coverage of crack in the 1980s and 1990s, is simply wrong. While it is true that the publicity surrounding crack cocaine led to a dramatic increase in funding for the drug war (as well as to sentencing policies that greatly exacerbated racial disparities in incarceration rates), there is no truth to the notion that the War on Drugs was launched in response to crack cocaine. President Ronald Reagan officially announced the current drug war in 1982, before crack became an issue in the media or a crisis in poor black neighborhoods. A few years after the drug war was declared, crack began to spread rapidly in the poor black neighborhoods of Los Angeles and later emerged in cities across the country.2 The Reagan administration hired staff to publicize the emergence of crack cocaine in 1985 as part of a strategic effort to build public and legislative support for the war. #Quote by Michelle Alexander
Crisis quotes by Afnan Ahmad Mia
#40. Our identity has already been chosen for us; but it is up to us to accept it, or fight and change it. #Quote by Afnan Ahmad Mia
Crisis quotes by Yanis Varoufakis
#41. Years of crisis have culminated in a Europe that has lost legitimacy with its own citizens and credibility with the rest of the world. #Quote by Yanis Varoufakis
Crisis quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
#42. How many people have I heard claim their children as the greatest accomplishment and comfort of their lives? It's the thing they can always lean on during a metaphysical crisis, or a moment of doubt about their relevancy - If I have done nothing else in this life, then at least I have raised my children well.

But what if, either by choice or by reluctant necessity, you end up not participating in this comforting cycle of family and continuity? What if you step out? Where do you sit at the reunion? How do you mark time's passage without the fear that you've just fritted away your time on earth without being relevant? You'll need to find another purpose, another measure by which to judge whether or not you have been a successful human being. I love children, but what if I don't have any? What kind of person does that make me?

Virginia Woolf wrote, "Across the broad continent of a woman's life falls the shadow of a sword." On one side of that sword, she said, there lies convention and tradition and order, where "all is correct." But on the other side of that sword, if you're crazy enough to cross it and choose a life that does not follow convention, "all is confusion. Nothing follows a regular course." Her argument was that the crossing of the shadow of that sword may bring a far more interesting existence to a woman, but you can bet it will also be more perilous. #Quote by Elizabeth Gilbert
Crisis quotes by Giorgio Napolitano
#43. This unprecedented crisis, which is without doubt the worst since the second world war, is not over. #Quote by Giorgio Napolitano
Crisis quotes by Upton Sinclair
#44. If you wanted to understand a politician you mustn't pay too much attention to his speeches, but find out who were his paymasters. A politician couldn't rise in public life, in France any more than in America, unless he had the backing of big money, and it was in times of crisis like this that he paid his debts. X #Quote by Upton Sinclair
Crisis quotes by Thomas S. Monson
#45. When compared to eternal verities, most of the questions and concerns of daily living are really rather trivial. What should we have for dinner? What color should we paint the living room? Should we sign Johnny up for soccer? These questions and countless others like them lose their significance when times of crisis arise, when loved ones are hurt or injured, when sickness enters the house of good health, when life's candle dims and darkness threatens. Our thoughts become focused, and we are easily able to determine what is really important and what is merely trivial. #Quote by Thomas S. Monson
Crisis quotes by Amit Ray
#46. In every crisis, confusion and doubt, take the higher path - the path of patience, alertness, courage, understandings and love. Fears and uncertainties are temporary. In the higher path the light of happiness comes soon. #Quote by Amit Ray
Crisis quotes by Robert Ludlum
#47. Before taking her into the library, my wife told me she was an old friend in a marriage crisis. A fatuous lie; at her age there are no crises left in marriage, only acceptance and extraction. (General Villiers) #Quote by Robert Ludlum
Crisis quotes by Marianne Williamson
#48. A moment of crisis can be a moment of growth, as the wounded self prepares to transform. From the chrysalis of my pain, I will forge my healing - the wings of my newborn self. #Quote by Marianne Williamson

Crisis quotes by Garry Kasparov
#50. In a 1959 speech in Indianapolis, John F. Kennedy famously observed that the Chinese word for 'crisis' is composed of two characters, one meaning danger and the other meaning opportunity. It turns out that this is not literally true. #Quote by Garry Kasparov
Crisis quotes by Francesca Zappia
#51. emmersmacks: Hold on

emmersmacks: Wait

emmersmacks: So you stood up for him?

MirkerLurker: Yeah.

emmersmacks: . . . Im failing to see the issue here E

emmersmacks: Did they hurt you??

MirkerLurker: No . . . not really. Just took my sketchbook and threw it around a little.

MirkerLurker: Okay look I know it doesn't sound that bad

MirkerLurker: But, like, you don't understand the way this guy looks at me. He's one of those where it's like, "Why are you even standing in front of me, you're uglier than the stuff I crap out after eating too muchChipotle."

3:19 p.m. (Apocalypse_Cow has joined the message)

Apocalypse_Cow: i feel like i came in at a bad time. i'll go.

emmersmacks: E is having a crisis

Apocalypse_Cow: crisis over what?

MirkerLurker: Just this stupid new kid at school who may or may not be a fanficwriter for Monstrous Sea and who definitely thinks I am the scum of the earth.

emmersmacks: Why would he think that?? You stood up for him

MirkerLurker: I don't know! Because I emasculated him, probably. Or something. Max, I need advice from someone who's felt emasculated.

Apocalypse_Cow: why would you immediately assume i've felt emasculated before?

MirkerLurker: Because you're the only male here.

Apocalypse_Cow: if you want to know if some guys feel emasculated when a girl stands #Quote by Francesca Zappia
Crisis quotes by David Brooks
#52. It's easy to see why politicians would be drawn to the populist pose. First, it makes everything so simple. The economic crisis was caused by a complex web of factors, including global imbalances caused by the rise of China. But with the populist narrative, you can just blame Goldman Sachs. #Quote by David Brooks
Crisis quotes by Daniel Akaka
#53. There is a human capital crisis in the federal government. Not only are we losing the decades of talent as civil servants retire, we are not doing enough to develop and nurture the next generation of public servants. #Quote by Daniel Akaka
Crisis quotes by Peter Diamandis
#54. I'm not saying we don't have our set of problems - climate crisis, species extinction, water and energy shortage - we surely do. [But] ultimately we knock them down. #Quote by Peter Diamandis
Crisis quotes by Ben Bernanke
#55. The failure of Lehman Brothers demonstrated that liquidity provision by the Federal Reserve would not be sufficient to stop the crisis; substantial fiscal resources were necessary. #Quote by Ben Bernanke
Crisis quotes by Seth Klarman
#56. Nowhere does it say that investors should strive to make every last dollar of potential profit; consideration of risk must never take a backseat to return. Conservative positioning entering a crisis is crucial: it enables one to maintain long-term oriented, clear thinking, and to focus on new opportunities while others are distracted or even forced to sell. Portfolio hedges must be in place before a crisis hits. One cannot reliably or affordably increase or replace hedges that are rolling off during a financial crisis. #Quote by Seth Klarman
Crisis quotes by David Foster Wallace
#57. Some people, from what I've seen, boo, when they lie, they become very still and centered and their gaze very concentrated and intense. They try to dominate the person they lie to. The person to whom they're lying. Another type becomes fluttery and insubstantial and punctuates his lie with little self-deprecating motions and sounds, as if credulity were the same as pity. Some bury the lie in so many digressions and asides that they like try to slip the lie in there through all the extraneous data like a tiny bug through a windowscreen ... Then there are what I might call your Kamikaze-style liars. These'll tell you a surreal and fundamentally incredible lie, and then pretend a crisis of conscience and retract the original lie, and then offer you the like they really want you to buy instead, so the real lie'll appear a some kind of concession, a settlement with through. That type's mercifully easy to see through ... Or then the type who sort of overelaborates on the lie, buttresses it with rococo formations of detail and amendment, and that's how you can always tell ... So Now I've established a subtype of the over-elaborator type. This is the liar who used to be an over-elaborator and but has somehow snapped to the fact that rococo elaborations give him away every time, so he changes and now lies tersely, sparely, seeming somehow bored, like what he's saying is too obviously true to waste time on. #Quote by David Foster Wallace
Crisis quotes by Steve Lopez
#58. Your violin has only two strings," I say. "You're missing the other two."
Yes, he says. He's well aware.
"All I want to do is play music, and the crisis I'm having is right here. This one's gone," he says of the missing top string, "that one's gone, and this little guy's almost out of commission." His goal in life, Nathaniel tells me, is to figure out how to replace the strings. But he got used to playing imperfect instruments while taking music classes in Cleveland's public schools, and there's a lot you can do, he assures me, with just two strings #Quote by Steve Lopez
Crisis quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
#59. So Sofie and I have come to Pizzeria da Michele, and these pies we have just ordered
one for each of us
are making us lose our minds. I love my pizza so much, in fact, that I have come to believe in my delerium that my pizza might actually love me, in return. I am having a relationship with this pizza, almost an affair. Meanwhile, Sofie is practically in tears over hers, she's having a metaphysical crisis about it, she's begging me, Why do they even bother trying to make pizza in Stockholm? Why do we even bother eating food at all in Stockholm? #Quote by Elizabeth Gilbert

Crisis quotes by William S Lind
#61. At the heart of this phenomenon, Fourth Generation war,4 lies not a military evolution but a political, social, and moral revolution: a crisis of legitimacy of the state. All over the world, citizens of states are transferring their primary allegiance away from the state to other entities: to tribes, ethnic groups, religions, gangs, ideologies, and "causes." Many people who will no longer fight for their state are willing to fight for their new primary loyalty. #Quote by William S Lind
Crisis quotes by Bella Abzug
#62. Women's struggle for equality worldwide is about more than equality between men and women. Our struggle is about reversing the trends of social, economic, political, and ecological crisis - a global nervous breakdown! Our struggle is about creating sustainable lives and attainable dreams. #Quote by Bella Abzug
Crisis quotes by K.P. Yohannan
#63. Many of the crisis problems which are considered disasters in the United States would only be normal, everyday living conditions in most of Asia. #Quote by K.P. Yohannan
Crisis quotes by Ron Paul
#64. Believe me, the next step is a currency crisis because there will be a rejection of the dollar, the rejection of the dollar is a big, big event, and then your personal liberties are going to be severely threatened. #Quote by Ron Paul
Crisis quotes by Jeremy Grantham
#65. The language 'It's too late' is very unsuitable for most environmental issues. It's too late for the dodo and for people who've starved to death already, but it's not too late to prevent an even bigger crisis. The sooner we act on the environment, the better. #Quote by Jeremy Grantham
Crisis quotes by Brittany Burgunder
#66. Don't wait for a crisis to realize what matters most. Put yourself first right now. Because right now is all we have. #Quote by Brittany Burgunder
Crisis quotes by Michael Lewis
#67. In the two decades after I left, I waited for the end of Wall Street as I had known it. The outrageous bonuses, the endless parade of rogue traders, the scandal that sank Drexel Burnham, the scandal that destroyed John Gutfreund and finished off Salomon Brothers, the crisis following the collapse of my old boss John Meriwether's Long-Term Capital Management, the Internet bubble: Over and over again, the financial system was, in some narrow way, discredited. Yet the big Wall Street banks at the center of it just kept on growing, along with the sums of money that they doled out to twenty-six-year-olds to perform tasks of no obvious social utility. The rebellion by American youth against the money culture never happened. Why bother to overturn your parents' world when you can buy it and sell off the pieces? #Quote by Michael Lewis
Crisis quotes by Ian McDonald
#68. She was theorizing on the Deep State; that enduring Turkish paranoia that the nation really was a conspiracy run by a cabal of generals, judges, industrialists and gangsters. The Taksim Square massacre of three years before, the Kahramanmaraş slaughter of Alevis a few months after, the oil crisis and the enduring economic instability, even the ubiquity of the Grey Wolves nationalist youth movement handing out their patriotic leaflets and defiling Greek Churches: all were links in an accelerating chain of events running through the fingers of the Derin Devlet. To what end? the men asked. Coup, she said, leaning forward, her fingers pursed. It was then that Georgios Ferentinou adored her. The classic profile, the strength of her jaw and fine cheekbones. The way she shook her head when the men disagreed with her, how her bobbed, curling hair swayed. The way she would not argue but set her lips and stared, as if their stupidity was a stubborn offence against nature. Her animation in argument balanced against her marvellous stillness when listening, considering, drawing up a new answer. How she paused, feeling the regard of another, then turned to Georgios and smiled.
In the late summer of 1980 Georgios Ferentinou fell in love with Ariana Sinanidis by Meryem Nasi's swimming pool. Three days later, on September 12th, Chief of General Staff Kenan Evren overthrew the government and banned all political activity. #Quote by Ian McDonald
Crisis quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
#69. It's easy enough to pray when you're in distress but continuing to pray even when your crisis has passed is like a sealing process, helping your soul hold tight to its good attainment. #Quote by Elizabeth Gilbert
Crisis quotes by Debra Meyerson

Crisis quotes by Vandana Shiva
#71. Although two thirds of our planet is water, we face an acute water shortage. The water crisis is the most pervasive , most severe, and most invisible dimension of the ecological devastation of the earth. #Quote by Vandana Shiva
Crisis quotes by Emil Cioran
#72. When you meditate all day on the inopportuneness of birth, everything you plan and everything you perform seems pathetic, futile. You are like a madman who, cured, does nothing but think of the crisis from which he has emerged, the "dream" he has left behind; he keeps harking back to it, so that his cure is of no benefit to him whatever. #Quote by Emil Cioran
Crisis quotes by George Soros

Crisis quotes by Dave Buschi
#78. Johnny Two-cakes. As a name it didn't quite fit him, but for some reason that's what he was called. Man was sour and dour. All business; doom and gloom to the extent it was actually funny. World was coming to an end. US was one tick away from becoming a third-world country's bitch. Everything was a crisis - including the fact someone had stolen his tuna sandwich. #Quote by Dave Buschi

Crisis quotes by Ivan Krastev
#80. Democracy has always been in crisis: democracy is all about practicing the art of bearable dissatisfaction. In democratic societies, people often complain about their leaders and their institutions. The gap between the ideal democracy and the existing one cannot be bridged. #Quote by Ivan Krastev
Crisis quotes by Anonymous
#81. Go back 2,400 years, and you can hear it from the Athenian orator Demosthenes as he chastises his fellow citizens for responding to Macedonian aggression by "forever debating the question and never making any progress" and issuing "empty decrees." "All words, apart from action," Demosthenes warned, "seem vain and idle, especially from Athenian lips: for the greater our reputation for a ready tongue, the greater the distrust it inspires in all men." We've had several years now of watching Obama and his foreign policy team prove this eternal truth as they have feebly and fecklessly responded to crisis after crisis in Ukraine, Syria, and a dozen other venues. #Quote by Anonymous
Crisis quotes by Mika.
#82. I say I have a midlife crisis every time I start and finish a record. #Quote by Mika.
Crisis quotes by Stuart Rose
#83. When my mother died, my father was in a crisis, my sister was in a crisis, everyone was in a crisis. I went round the night my mother was lying in the kitchen, and I organised everything, from the undertaker to the funeral ... I looked after everybody, I sorted it all out and I've done so ever since. #Quote by Stuart Rose
Crisis quotes by Francis James Grimke
#84. When the U.S. Government shows a proper appreciation of the services of the Negro who has never failed it in every crisis of its history to do his whole duty, to shed his blood freely in its behalf ... then, and not till then, will I be heard. #Quote by Francis James Grimke
Crisis quotes by Joe Biden
#85. The White House isn't the place to learn how to deal with international crisis, the balance of power, war and peace, and the economic future of the next generation. #Quote by Joe Biden
Crisis quotes by Karl Hyde
#86. Familiarity isn't always a good thing ... sometimes you need a little crisis to shake things up. #Quote by Karl Hyde
Crisis quotes by Daniel Pauly
#87. The crisis of the fisheries is similar to our economy. This is not one fishery failing, but the whole system. #Quote by Daniel Pauly
Crisis quotes by Thomas Frank
#88. There is much to dislike about President Obama's approach to the financial crisis. But opposition, it seems, will have to come from somewhere other than conservatism. The party out of power is also a party out of touch. #Quote by Thomas Frank
Crisis quotes by Jose Ferreira
#89. In a crisis, markets always look to see who is the next-worst off and proactively begin shying away from them. #Quote by Jose Ferreira
Crisis quotes by Hideki Tojo
#90. Therefore, if one were to consider that there was virtually no possibility of success through the US-Japan negotiations, the military and economic pressures would only force Japan into further crisis if time were allowed to pass in vain. #Quote by Hideki Tojo
Crisis quotes by Thomas Huxley
#91. No one can help another very much in these crises of life; but love and sympathy count for something. #Quote by Thomas Huxley
Crisis quotes by Alexander Hamilton
#92. The President of the United States would be liable to be impeached, tried, and upon conviction of treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors, removed from office; and would afterwards be liable to prosecution and punishment in the ordinary course of law. The person of the King of Great Britain is sacred and inviolable: There is no constitutional tribunal to which he is amenable, no punishment to which he can be subjected without involving the crisis of a national revolution. #Quote by Alexander Hamilton
Crisis quotes by Henry L. Stimson
#93. When the news first came that Japan had attacked us my first feeling was of relief that ... a crisis had come in a way which would unite all our people. This continued to be my dominant feeling in spite of the news of catastrophes which quickly developed. #Quote by Henry L. Stimson
Crisis quotes by Pat Frank
#94. You react to crisis the right way. You remember what Toynbee says? His theory of challenge and response applies not only to nations, but to individuals. Some nations and some people melt in the heat of crisis and come apart like fat in the pan. Others meet the challenge and harden. I think you're going to harden. #Quote by Pat Frank
Crisis quotes by Charles Eisenstein
#95. The present convergence of crises––in money, energy, education, health, water, soil, climate, politics, the environment, and more––is a birth crisis, expelling us from the old world into a new. #Quote by Charles Eisenstein
Crisis quotes by Marc Andreessen
#96. If there's been a crisis in a market, you don't tend to have a new crisis in that market until the people who went through the last crisis aren't in the system anymore. #Quote by Marc Andreessen
Crisis quotes by S. Kelley Harrell
#97. We are the most open-feeling that we can be, when we can no longer be as we are. #Quote by S. Kelley Harrell
Crisis quotes by Jean-Louis Murat
#98. I affirm that the crisis of the disc is a lure, it does not exist: the offer is intact, the increasing demand. But, each night, in the hangars of the music, the half of stock is stolen. Imagine the reaction of Renault vis-a-vis delinquents who would force the door daily to conceal the cars! #Quote by Jean-Louis Murat
Crisis quotes by James MacDonald
#99. Acting like a man means developing a non-anxious presence that sees the big picture, remains calm in a crisis, and won't cave in under pressure. Godly men respond; they don't react. #Quote by James MacDonald
Crisis quotes by Ryan Holiday
#100. Especially when the leaders in your supposed community make it clear that that is exactly how they feel about you when it comes down to the crunch. But no, ignore that. It is in this moment that we must show the true strength of will within us. A few years ago, in the middle of the financial crisis, the artist and musician Henry Rollins managed to express this deeply human obligation better than millennia of religious doctrine ever have: #Quote by Ryan Holiday
Crisis quotes by Fareed Zakaria
#101. The markets are much more interested in America's long-term trajectory than they are in feeling that there is an acute short-term crisis. #Quote by Fareed Zakaria
Crisis quotes by Hilary Mantel
#102. May 29, the Central Committee of the Sections goes into "permanent session" - what a fine, crisis-ridden sound it has, that term! #Quote by Hilary Mantel
Crisis quotes by Gilbert K. Chesterton
#103. The whole pleasure of marriage is that it is a perpetual crisis. #Quote by Gilbert K. Chesterton
Crisis quotes by Gregory Maguire
#104. When the times are a crucible, when the air is full of crisis, those who are the most themselves are the victims. #Quote by Gregory Maguire
Crisis quotes by Paul Bettany
#105. I simply don't understand the refugee crisis. The history of humanity can be told through a story of migration and settlement. If I can't protect my family, I'm coming to where you are; I'm just coming. It's a round world, and we've all got to get on with it and move on. #Quote by Paul Bettany
Crisis quotes by James S.A. Corey
#106. No one really appreciated how much of security work was just trying to keep things under control for a few more minutes, giving everyone involved in the crisis a little time to think it all through. #Quote by James S.A. Corey
Crisis quotes by Carla Ferrer
#107. Live Your Life By Design, Rather Than From Crisis to Crisis! #Quote by Carla Ferrer
Crisis quotes by Buan Boonaca
#108. He thought he vomited out his soul. If ghosts were made of ectoplasm and ghosts were basically souls without bodies, then it was perfectly logical that the green mess all over the ground was his ectoplasmic essence. #Quote by Buan Boonaca
Crisis quotes by Steve Daines
#109. I ran for Congress not because I was having a mid-life crisis. I left the private sector because I saw a looming financial crisis that was coming to this country. It's unsustainable. #Quote by Steve Daines
Crisis quotes by Jason Kirkey
#110. There is a saying that 'the psychotic drowns in the waters that the mystic swims in.' The health and structural integrity of the ego means the difference between spiritual emergence, the unfolding of a transpersonal identity; and a spiritual emergency a crisis brought on by the same unfolding, during which the foundations of sanity can be shaken. #Quote by Jason Kirkey
Crisis quotes by Ross Douthat
#111. However superficially appealing, the idea that a religious tradition could be saved from crisis because a group of intellectuals radically reinterpreted its sacred texts is the kind of conceit that only, well, an intellectual could possibly believe. #Quote by Ross Douthat
Crisis quotes by Antonio Gramsci
#112. The crisis creates situations which are dangerous in the short run, since the various strata of the population are not all capable of orienting themselves equally swiftly, or of reorganizing with the same rhythm. The traditional ruling class, which has numerous trained cadres, changes men and programmes and, with greater speed than is achieved by the subordinate classes, reabsorbs the control that was slipping from its grasp. Perhaps it may make sacrifices, and expose itself to an uncertain future by demagogic promises; but it retains power, reinforces it for the time being, and uses it to crush its adversary and disperse his leading cadres, who cannot be be very numerous or highly trained. #Quote by Antonio Gramsci
Crisis quotes by Kira Jane Buxton
#113. So there we were. A rejected crow with an identity crisis partnering a bloodhound with the IQ of boiled pudding. We were perhaps the most pathetic excuse for an attempted murder on the face of the earth. #Quote by Kira Jane Buxton
Crisis quotes by Riccardo Bruni
#114. It seems like someone is using wars and our economic crisis to spread distrust and rancor among the population. In times like these, those are dangerous feelings to spread around. #Quote by Riccardo Bruni
Crisis quotes by Heather Sellers
#115. I think everyone has one day like this, and some people have more than one. It's the day of the accident, the midlife crisis, the breakdown, the meltdown, the walkout, the sellout, the giving up, giving away, or giving in. The day you stop drinking, or the day you start. The day you know things will never be the same again. #Quote by Heather Sellers
Crisis quotes by Augusten Burroughs
#116. All improvements, transformations, achievements, liberations; everything you want to change about yourself and your life; everything you want to make happen, any obstacle you want to overcome, any crisis you must survive - the prerequisite is being able to allow yourself to feel whatever it is you feel and not pretend to feel something you don't. #Quote by Augusten Burroughs
Crisis quotes by William, Saroyan
#117. All I can say is that there is indeed a crisis here. We cannot speak to one another in a meaningful way, every one of us is a leader, a general of the army, a king, a president, the greatest thinker of all time, and so on and so forth. This is the curse of the Armenian race. #Quote by William, Saroyan
Crisis quotes by Iain Cameron Williams
#118. The greatest gift this generation can give future generations is a HEALTHY PLANET. #Quote by Iain Cameron Williams
Crisis quotes by Al Gore
#119. We have to abandon the conceit that isolated personal actions are going to solve this crisis. Our policies have to shift. #Quote by Al Gore
Crisis quotes by Tess Gerritsen
#120. There is no better test of character than when you're tossed into crisis. That's when we see one's true colors shine through. So I try my best to make my characters personally involved in the plot, in a way that stresses them and tests them. #Quote by Tess Gerritsen
Crisis quotes by Johnnie Cochran
#121. We've got to be judged by how we do in times of crisis. #Quote by Johnnie Cochran
Crisis quotes by Edward Bellamy
#122. Your system was liable to periodical convulsions ... business crises at intervals of five to ten years, which wrecked the industries of the nation. #Quote by Edward Bellamy
Crisis quotes by Os Guinness
#123. There is no problem with the wider culture that you cannot see in the spades in the Christian Church. The rot is in us, and not simple out there. And Christians are making a great mistake by turning everything into culture wars. It's a much deeper crisis. #Quote by Os Guinness
Crisis quotes by Rebecca Eaton
#124. There's always a crisis somewhere, and you get the satisfaction of solving the problem. And then, there's always the mystery of whether a program will work or not, and waiting for the reviews or seeing what the audience figures are. #Quote by Rebecca Eaton
Crisis quotes by Michael Lewis
#125. Cause of the financial crisis was "simple. Greed on both sides - greed of investors and the greed of the bankers." I thought it was more complicated. Greed on Wall Street was a given - almost an obligation. The problem was the system of incentives that channeled the greed. The line between gambling and investing is artificial and thin. #Quote by Michael Lewis
Crisis quotes by John Ortberg
#126. When someone is in crisis, don't start by teaching, leveraging, or explaining. Just be with. #Quote by John Ortberg
Crisis quotes by Barbara Delinsky
#127. Just when you thought you'd reached a good place in life, a crisis could erupt and spill into the corners you thought most secure. #Quote by Barbara Delinsky
Crisis quotes by Upton Sinclair
#128. Journalism is one of the devices whereby industrial autocracy keeps its control over political democracy; it is the day-by-day, between-elections propaganda, whereby the minds of the people are kept in a state of acquiescence, so that when the crisis of an election comes, they go to the polls and cast their ballots for either one of the two candidates of their exploiters. #Quote by Upton Sinclair
Crisis quotes by Steven Erikson
#129. Write the following: "Private missive, from Lieutenant Master-Sergeant Field Quartermaster Pores, to Fist Kindly. Warmest salutations and congratulations on your promotion, sir. As one might observe from your advancement and, indeed, mine, cream doth rise, etc. In as much as I am ever delighted in corresponding with you, discussing all maner of subjects in all possible idioms, alas, this subject is rather more official in nature. In short, we are faced with a crisis of the highest order. Accordignly, I humbly seek your advice and would suggest we arrange a most private meeting at the earliest convenience. Yours affectionately, Pores." Got that, Himble?'
'Yes sir'
'Please read it back to me.'
'"Pores to Kindly meet in secret when?"'
'Excellent, Dispatch at once, Himble #Quote by Steven Erikson

Crisis quotes by Eddie Vedder
#131. She said to me, over the phone
She wanted to see other people
I thought, Well then, look around. They're everywhere
Said that she was confused...
I thought, Darling, join the club
24 years old, Mid-life crisis
Nowadays hits you when you're young
I hung up, She called back, I hung up again
The process had already started
At least it happened quick
I swear, I died inside that night
My friend, he called
I didn't mention a thing
The last thing he said was, Be sound
Sound...
I contemplated an awful thing, I hate to admit
I just thought those would be such appropriate last words
But I'm still here
And small
So small.. How could this struggle seem so big?
So big...
While the palms in the breeze still blow green
And the waves in the sea still absolute blue
But the horror
Every single thing I see is a reminder of her
Never thought I'd curse the day I met her
And since she's gone and wouldn't hear
Who would care? What good would that do?
But I'm still here
So I imagine in a month...or 12
I'll be somewhere having a drink
Laughing at a stupid joke
Or just another stupid thing
And I can see myself stopping short
Drifting out of the present
Sucked by the undertow and pulled out deep
And there I am, standing
Wet grass and white headstones all in rows
And in the distance there's one, off on its own
S #Quote by Eddie Vedder

Crisis quotes by Kathryn Alesandrini
#133. Here are the top three warning signs [you're at risk of foreclosure]:
* You used to think nobody cared when your phone rarely rang. Then you missed a couple of house payments.
* You're glad gas prices have fallen so you can afford it if you have to move into your car.
* You're ready to say, "Let's make a deal" and trade your upside-down house for whatever's behind Door #3. #Quote by Kathryn Alesandrini
Crisis quotes by Albert Einstein
#134. The world will not evolve past its current state of crisis by using the same thinking that created the situation. #Quote by Albert Einstein
Crisis quotes by Ludwig Von Mises
#135. Library of the Works of Ludwig von Mises". Here is an article he wrote in 1951, some two years after his magnum opus Human Action appeared, where is lays out his case in a more popular form. The money sentences are "Economic theory has demonstrated in an irrefutable way that a prosperity created by an expansionist monetary and credit policy is illusory and must end in a slump, an economic crisis. It has happened again and again in the past, and it will happen in the future, too. #Quote by Ludwig Von Mises
Crisis quotes by Esther Perel
#136. Because I believe that some good can come out of the crisis of infidelity, I have often been asked, "So, would you recommend an affair to a struggling couple?" My response? A lot of people have positive, life-changing experiences that come along with terminal illness. But I would not recommend having an affair than I would recommend getting cancer. #Quote by Esther Perel
Crisis quotes by Carla Gugino
#137. There is something in these moments of crisis that is really extraordinary about humanity and human beings' resilience and the way in which everyone naturally comes together. I think you see the best in people in those moments for better or for worse and you find your best self. #Quote by Carla Gugino
Crisis quotes by Nicholas Stern
#138. My father's generation's crisis was fighting fascism. Ours is fighting climate change. It is much harder because you can't see it, it is not an obvious threat. But the solution is in our hands. #Quote by Nicholas Stern
Crisis quotes by Aleksandar Hemon
#139. Displacement results in a tenuous relationship with the past, with the self that used to exist and operate in a different place, where the qualities that constituted us were in no need of negotiation. Immigration is an ontological crisis because you are forced to negotiatet the conditions of your selfhood under pereptually changing existential circumstances. #Quote by Aleksandar Hemon
Crisis quotes by Cherie Blair
#140. My advice to organizations I work with is always to be proactive rather than simply reactive when it comes to human rights issues. After all, the important process of improving company policies and practices must be carried out without having to be prompted by a labour strike, factory collapse or other crisis. #Quote by Cherie Blair
Crisis quotes by Mo Yan
#141. I am also well aware that literature only has a minimal influence on political disputes or economic crises in the world, but its significance to human beings is ancient. #Quote by Mo Yan
Crisis quotes by Albert A. Bartlett
#142. We must realize that growth is but an adolescent phase of life which stops when physical maturity is reached. If growth continues in the period of maturity it is called obesity or cancer. Prescribing growth as the cure for the energy crisis has all the logic of prescribing increasing quantities of food as a remedy for obesity. #Quote by Albert A. Bartlett
Crisis quotes by Jeffrey Sachs

Crisis quotes by Stephanie Laurens
#144. She woke to find dawn light, pearly silver tinged with pink, washing into the room. For a moment, she wondered what had woken her, then she glanced at Breckenridge-into his hazel eyes.
"You're awake!" She only just managed not to squeal. The joy leaping through her was near impossible to contain.
He smiled weakly. His lids drooped, fell. "I've been awake for some time, but didn't want to wake you."
His voice was little more than a whisper.
She realized it was the faint pressure of his fingers on hers that had drawn her rom sleep. Those fingers, his hand, were no longer over-warm. Reaching out, she laid her fingers on his forehead. "Your temperature's normal-the fever's broken. Thank God."
Retrieving her hand, refocusing on his face, she felt relief crash through her in a disorienting, almost overpowering wave. "You have to rest." That was imperative; she felt driven by flustered urgency to ensure he understood. "You're mending nicely. Now the crisis has passed, you'll get better day by day. Catriona says that with time you'll be as good as new." Algaria had warned her to assure him of that.
He swallowed; eyes closed, he shifted his head in what she took to be a nod. "I'll rest in a minute. But first...did you mean what you said out there by the bull pen? That you truly want a future with me?"
"Yes." She clutched his hand more tightly between hers. "I meant every word."
His lips curved a fraction, then he sighed. Eyes still closed-she se #Quote by Stephanie Laurens
Crisis quotes by Patrick Cockburn
#145. US policy of recruiting Syrian "moderates" to fight both ISIS and Assad, Biden said that in Syria the US had found "that there was no moderate middle because the moderate middle are made up of shopkeepers, not soldiers." Seldom have the real forces at work in creating ISIS and the present crisis in Iraq and Syria been so accurately described. #Quote by Patrick Cockburn

Crisis quotes by Boris Johnson
#147. Life isn't like coursework, baby. It's one damn essay crisis after another. #Quote by Boris Johnson
Crisis quotes by Alex Gerber Jr.
#148. As the systems theorist Fritjof Capra points out, humanity's social, political, economic, and environmental plights are all manifestations of a cultural crisis brought about by adherence to outdated conceptual models ... Under the reductionist paradigm, humans' concept of nature devolved from that of living organism to machine, and the predominant value system came to be based on the domination and control of nature rather than respect for and harmony with the natural world. #Quote by Alex Gerber Jr.
Crisis quotes by Ron Suskind
#149. He was confronted at an early age with adult-strength realizations about powerlessness, desperation, and distrust, taking his dose right alongside the overwhelmed adults. This steady stream of shocks and realizations leaves so many boys raised in poor, urban areas stumbling toward manhood with a hardened exterior masking deep insecurities. #Quote by Ron Suskind
Crisis quotes by Wendell Berry
#150. Under the rule of the "free market" ideology, we have gone through two decades of an energy crisis without an effective energy policy. Because of an easy and thoughtless reliance on imported oil, we have no adequate policy for the conservation of gasoline and other petroleum products. We have no adequate policy for the development or use of other, less harmful forms of energy. We have no adequate system of public transportation. #Quote by Wendell Berry
Crisis quotes by Jeff VanderMeer
#151. An inordinate love of ritual can be harmful to the soul, unless, of course, in times of great crisis, when ritual can protect the soul from fracture. #Quote by Jeff VanderMeer
Crisis quotes by Hillary Clinton
#152. Never waste a good crisis ... Don't waste it when it can have a very positive impact on climate change and energy security. #Quote by Hillary Clinton
Crisis quotes by Jeffrey Eugenides
#153. Given the choice, a yeast cell's ideal state is to be diploid. But if it's in an environment with a lack of nutrients, you know what happens?
The diploids break into haploids again. Solitary little haploids. Because, in a crisis, it's easier to survive as a single cell. #Quote by Jeffrey Eugenides
Crisis quotes by Bernard Bailyn

#155. Capitalism has become systemically risky when a single financial algorithm like the one that David X. Li created brought the entire global economic system close to collapse in 2008. #Quote by Said Elias Dawlabani
Crisis quotes by Rahm Emanuel
#156. There was no blueprint or how-to manual for fixing a global financial meltdown, an auto crisis, two wars and a great recession, all at the same time. #Quote by Rahm Emanuel
Crisis quotes by Alex S. Vitale
#157. As Jeffrey Reiman points out in the Rich Get Richer and the Poor Get Prison, the criminal justice system excuses and ignores crimes of the rich that produce profound social harms while intensely criminalizing the behaviors of the poor and nonwhite, including those behaviors that produce few social harms. When the crimes of the rich are dealt with, it's generally through administrative controls and civil enforcement rather than aggressive policing, criminal prosecution, and incarceration, which are reserved largely for the poor and nonwhite. No bankers have been jailed for the 2008 financial crisis despite widespread fraud and the looting of the American economy, which resulted in mass unemployment, homelessness, and economic dislocation. #Quote by Alex S. Vitale
Crisis quotes by Rahm Emanuel
#158. Whose leadership, whose judgment, whose values do you want in the White House when that crisis lands like a thud on the Oval Office desk? #Quote by Rahm Emanuel
Crisis quotes by Antonin Scalia
#159. The court's job is to uphold the Constitution and you don't call that off in times of crisis. Would the framers have allowed this practice? #Quote by Antonin Scalia
Crisis quotes by Robert Anton Wilson
#160. What the world calls sanity has led us to the present planetary crisis ... and insanity is the only viable alternative. #Quote by Robert Anton Wilson
Crisis quotes by Wendell Berry
#161. The crisis of community has its source in the corruption of character. #Quote by Wendell Berry
Crisis quotes by Ada Leverson
#162. The marvellous instinct with which women are usually credited seems too often to desert them on the only occasions when it would be of any real use. One would say it was there for trivialities only, since in a crisis they are usually dense, fatally doing the wrong thing. It is hardly too much to say that most domestic tragedies are caused by the feminine intuition of men and the want of it in women. #Quote by Ada Leverson
Crisis quotes by Pope Francis
#163. The worldwide financial and economic crisis seems to highlight their distortions and above all the gravely deficient human perspective, which reduces man to one of his needs alone, namely, consumption. Worse yet, human beings themselves are nowadays considered as consumer goods which can be used and thrown away. #Quote by Pope Francis
Crisis quotes by Gregory Feifer
#164. Vladimir Putin shot out of obscurity in 1999 by exploiting growing nostalgia for the USSR, fueled by the disappointment, uncertainty and crisis that brought Yeltsin's reform era to a shuddering halt. Once in power the following year, Putin set about building an authoritarian regime whose control would expand for more than a decade, until soaring corruption on top of another economic downturn - a much smaller one, triggered by the global financial crisis of 2008 - prompted another backlash. #Quote by Gregory Feifer
Crisis quotes by Leo Strauss
#165. It is not self-forgetting and pain-loving antiquarianism nor self-forgetting and intoxicating romanticism which induces us to turn with passionate interest, with unqualified willingness to learn, toward the political thought of classical antiquity. We are impelled to do so by the crisis of our time, the crisis of the West. #Quote by Leo Strauss
Crisis quotes by Alex Jones
#166. You don't know who's good or bad until you get to that crisis point. #Quote by Alex Jones
Crisis quotes by Al Gore
#167. The symbolism - and the substantive significance - of planting a tree has universal power in every culture and every society on Earth, and it is a way for individual men, women and children to participate in creating solutions for the environmental crisis. #Quote by Al Gore
Crisis quotes by Al Gore
#168. If we did not take action to solve this crisis, it could indeed threaten the future of human civilization. That sounds shrill. It sounds hard to accept. I believe it's deadly accurate. But again, we can solve it. #Quote by Al Gore
Crisis quotes by Diana DeGette
#169. The United States has never been afraid of a challenge. In times of crisis, it is American innovation and ingenuity that has forged the path to progress and prosperity. #Quote by Diana DeGette
Crisis quotes by Jennifer DeLucy
#170. But there was a special kind of gift that came with embracing the chaos, even if I cursed most of the way. I'm convinced that, when everything is wiped blank, it's life 's way of forcing you to become acquainted with and aware of who you are now, who you can become. What is the fulfillment of your soul? #Quote by Jennifer DeLucy
Crisis quotes by Andre Gunder Frank
#171. It is ironic that Keynesianism originated as a weapon to combat depression, but became universally accepted and "successful" only during (and because of!) the postwar expansion. At the first sign of renewed world recession, Keynesian theory has proved itself to be a snare and a delusion that has gone into immediate bankruptcy. The resulting "post-Keynesian synthesis" is also the theoretical reason for the reactionary exhumation of the simplistic, neoclassical, and monetarist economic theory of the 1920s. This revival of old theory is highlighted by the award of Nobel prizes in economics to Friedrich von Hayek, whose theoretical work was done before the Great Depression, and Milton Friedman, whose lone voice echoed in the wilderness until the new world economic crisis put his unpopular and antipopulist theories on the agenda of business board rooms and government cabinet rooms in one capitalist country after another. The real reason for the recent interest in fifty-year-old theories is that capital now wants them to legitimize its attack on the welfare state and "unproductive" expenditures on social services, which capital claims to need for "productive" investment in industry, including armaments. #Quote by Andre Gunder Frank
Crisis quotes by Robert M. Gates
#172. The passage of fourteen years had led to another significant change in the international environment. As I told Bush 43 and Condi Rice on more than one occasion, when I had been in government before, problems or crises more often than not would arise, be dealt with, and go away. The Yom Kippur War in October 1973, a serious crisis that risked confrontation with the Soviet Union, was over in a few days. Even the Iranian hostage crisis, as painful and protracted as it was, ended in 444 days. Now hardly any issue or problem could be resolved and put aside; instead problems accumulated. #Quote by Robert M. Gates
Crisis quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#173. Existential anguish derives from the human freedom to think and act, experience love for life, and fear death. We must decide whether we wish to embrace all experience and encounters in life or seek escape from various aspect of human nature. How we resolve to address existential anguish becomes a large part of our personal story. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Crisis quotes by Dilma Rousseff
#174. We will not play with inflation. We are living a delicate moment. President Obama spoke to me today about the high unemployment affecting the United States. In this crisis period, when the developed nations are not recovering, it's prudent to maintain the established inflation target. #Quote by Dilma Rousseff
Crisis quotes by Cari Kamm
#175. To keep the ugly cry-face on lock down, I directed my attention to my polished gold Krugerrand coin, which hung against my chest by a thin, twisted gold chain and flashed against my black blouse. It was my Batman signal, alerting the universe that I was in crisis and in desperate need of being rescued immediately, if not sooner. The coin's weight was also a reminder of the reason I'd moved to Gotham City. After all, it was a result of my great-aunt and her one-ounce gold-coin collection that afforded me the opportunity of the life I was leading. #Quote by Cari Kamm
Crisis quotes by Nikolai Bukharin
#176. But to everything in this world there comes an end; there even comes an end to the torments suffered in those intermediate states of transition when the last secret tear of one's soul is bitterly swallowed, and the crisis passes, resolving itself into some new sort of phase, which even as it comes into existence is fated in turn to pass away, to disappear in the eternal changing of the times and seasons. #Quote by Nikolai Bukharin
Crisis quotes by Wayne Teasdale
#177. If the ecological crisis, for example, is to be solved and if we are to promote genuine justice and thus bring real peace to the planet-and with it the possibility of improving lives on every level, not just economically, socially, and politically, but spiritually, psychologically, and intellectually-then, just on a practical level, we need to have all of the religions working together. #Quote by Wayne Teasdale
Crisis quotes by Pope John Paul II
#178. Certain elements of today's ecological crisis reveal its moral character. First among these is the indiscriminate application of advances in science and technology. Many recent discoveries have brought undeniable benefits to humanity. Indeed, they demonstrate the nobility of the human vocation to participate responsibly in God's creative action in the world. Unfortunately, it is now clear that the application of these discoveries in the fields of industry and agriculture have produced harmful long-term effects. #Quote by Pope John Paul II
Crisis quotes by Charles Ferguson
#179. When the financial crisis arrived, it seemed to me that this was something I had to make a movie about. #Quote by Charles Ferguson
Crisis quotes by Yegor Gaidar
#180. The situation - having to choose between imposing higher retail prices and reducing investments and military spending - created a dilemma for the government: deciding between conflict with the public or with the Party economic elite. But not making a decision heightened the risk that, as the crisis developed, there would be conflict with both the public and the elite.18 The new generation of leaders clearly did not understand this. The traditional management of the economy was oriented on natural, rather than abstract, parameters. The development of cattle breeding was discussed at the highest level more frequently than the country's budget. Industry and business leaders regarded finances as necessary but dreary bookkeeping.19 In addition, information on the real state of the budget, hard currency reserves, foreign debt, and balance of payments was available only to an extremely narrow circle of people, many of whom understood nothing about it anyway. #Quote by Yegor Gaidar
Crisis quotes by Steve Jurvetson
#181. If you thought financial crises came and went, just count on them - another economic collapse, it's almost going to be like not news any more. But for startups this is great, because it's a perpetual driver of disruption. #Quote by Steve Jurvetson
Crisis quotes by David Harvey
#182. The electoral victories of Thatcher (1979) and Reagan (1980) are often viewed as a distinctive rupture in the politics of the postwar period. I understand them more as consolidations of what was already under way throughout much of the 1970s. The crisis of 1973-5 was in part born out of a confrontation with the accumulated rigidities of government policies and practices built up during the Fordist-Keynesian period. Keynesian policies had appeared inflationary as entitlements grew and fiscal capacities stagnated. Since it had always been part of the Fordist political consensus that redistributions should be funded out of growth, slackening growth inevitably meant trouble for the welfare state and the social wage. #Quote by David Harvey
Crisis quotes by Sylvester Stallone
#183. The biggest and most interesting crisis in the world is the human crisis, and it never gets boring. It goes back to Shakespeare. You don't need a gimmick; it's just man against man and their intolerance of each other. #Quote by Sylvester Stallone
Crisis quotes by Clive Barker
#184. As long as they could still be moved by a minor chord, or brought to a crisis of tears by scenes of lovers reunited; as long as there was room in their cautious hearts for games of chance, and laughter in the face of God, that must surely be enough to save them, at the last. If not, there was no hope for any living thing. #Quote by Clive Barker
Crisis quotes by George Ayittey
#185. What Africa needs to do is to grow, to grow out of debt. #Quote by George Ayittey
Crisis quotes by Alyxandra Harvey
#186. Hunter pulled away, rolling her eyes.
"Hey, where are you going?" I murmured. "We're not done making up."
"We're in crisis mode out there," she answered, reluctantly taking another step back.
"It's always crisis mode in this house," I said with disgust."

Crisis quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#187. One person's sacrifice makes millions wake up from their sleep of indifference. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Crisis quotes by Joan Robinson
#188. A sure sign of a crisis is the prevalence of cranks. It is characteristic of a crisis in theory that cranks get a hearing from the public which orthodoxy is failing to satisfy. #Quote by Joan Robinson
Crisis quotes by John Redwood
#189. We think it would be safer if the Bank of England had responsibility for solvency regulation of UK-based banks, as well as having an overall duty to keep the system solvent. Otherwise, there could be dangerous delays if a banking crisis did hit. #Quote by John Redwood
Crisis quotes by Debbie Ford
#190. I always felt like if I lived in true authentic self-expression and lived in service and in support of many other people, I would be exempt from having to deal with yet another crisis in my life. I was wrong. #Quote by Debbie Ford
Crisis quotes by Stewart Stafford
#191. Education is the way out of the poverty trap. It shouldn't be the poverty trap itself and make those trying to better themselves incur massive student debt. #Quote by Stewart Stafford
Crisis quotes by Grace Lee Boggs
#192. We need to do what I call visionary organizing. Recognize that in every crisis, people do not respond like a school of fish. Some people become immobilized. Some people become very angry, some commit suicide, and other people begin to find solutions. And visionary organizers look at those people, recognize them and encourage them, and they become leaders of the future. #Quote by Grace Lee Boggs
Crisis quotes by Indrajit Garai
#193. Emergencies send sparks to the darkest corner of us. They wake up our hormones and neurotransmitters, they remove the rust from our body and mind, and they show us we can still handle crisis with poise.

Emergencies push us to our limits. At those limits, the best inside us comes out. The eyes of our mind open, exceptional vision occurs to us, and we have a chance to become extraordinary. #Quote by Indrajit Garai
Crisis quotes by Robert Kiyosaki
#194. It is easier to invest for cash flow during a financial crisis. So don't waste a good crisis by hiding your head in the sand. The longer the crisis lasts, the richer some people will become. #Quote by Robert Kiyosaki
Crisis quotes by Sally Helgesen
#195. Women's entry into the public sphere can be seen not merely as the result of contemporary economic pressures, the high rate of divorce, or the success of the feminist movement, but rather as a profound evolutionary response to a pervasive cultural crisis. Feminine principles are entering the public realm because we can no longer afford to restrict them to the private domestic sphere, nor allow a public culture obsessed with Warrior values to control human destiny if we are to survive. #Quote by Sally Helgesen
Crisis quotes by Sara Zarr
#196. Because we were having a family crisis."
"Your family had a crisis?"
"Yes, Ethan. My family. Had a crisis. A crisis was had by my family. #Quote by Sara Zarr
Crisis quotes by Mario Draghi
#197. If we do not resolve the euro crisis, we will all pay the price. And if we do resolve it, we will all benefit, particularly German taxpayers and savers. #Quote by Mario Draghi
Crisis quotes by Larry McMurtry
#198. Once, when I was about ten, we were approaching the ranch after veering north to look at some pasturage when we saw a small barefoot boy racing along the hot road with terror in his face. My father just managed to stop him. Though incoherent with fear, the boy managed to inform us that his little brother had just drowned in the horse trough. My father grabbed the boy and we went racing up to the farmhouse, where the anguished mother, the drowned child in her arms, was sobbing, crying out in German, and rocking in a rocking chair. Fortunately the boy was not quite dead. My father managed to get him away from his mother long enough to stretch him out on the porch and squeeze the water out of him. In a while the boy began to belch dirty fluids and then to breathe again. The crisis past, we went on home. The graceful German mother brought my father jars of her best sauerkraut for many, many years. #Quote by Larry McMurtry
Crisis quotes by Julian Castro
#199. What we see out there is an affordable housing crisis, particularly in the rental market in cities big and small, and we don't have the resources necessary to fill that gap. #Quote by Julian Castro
Crisis quotes by Edmund Burke
#200. The hottest fires in hell are reserved for those who remain neutral in times of moral crisis. #Quote by Edmund Burke
