English Government quotes by Alice Duer Miller
#2. Is it true that the English government is calling on women to do work abandoned by men?
Yes, it is true.
Is not a woman's place the home?
No, not when men need her services outside the home.
Will she never be told again that her place is the home?
Oh, yes, indeed.
As soon as men want their jobs back again. #Quote by Alice Duer Miller
English Government quotes by Thomas Paine
#3. There are matters in that book, said to be done by the express command of God, that are as shocking to humanity, and to every idea we have of moral justice, as any thing done by Robespierre, by Carrier, by Joseph le Bon, in France, by the English government in the East Indies, or by any other assassin in modern times. When we read in the books ascribed to Moses, Joshua, etc., that they (the Israelites) came by stealth upon whole nations of people, who, as the history itself shews, had given them no offence; that they put all those nations to the sword; that they spared neither age nor infancy; that they utterly destroyed men, women and children; that they left not a soul to breathe; expressions that are repeated over and over again in those books, and that too with exulting ferocity; are we sure these things are facts? are we sure that the Creator of man commissioned those things to be done? Are we sure that the books that tell us so were written by his authority? #Quote by Thomas Paine
English Government quotes by Frances Hodgson Burnett
#4. Was yellow because she had been born in India and had always been ill in one way or another. Her father had held a position under the English Government and had always been busy and ill himself, and her mother had been a great beauty who cared only to go to parties and amuse herself with gay people. She had not wanted a little girl at all, and when Mary was born she handed her #Quote by Frances Hodgson Burnett
English Government quotes by Franklin D. Roosevelt
#5. Let us never forget that government is ourselves and not an alien power over us. The ultimate rulers of our democracy are not a President and senators and congressmen and government officials, but the voters of this country. #Quote by Franklin D. Roosevelt
English Government quotes by Thomas Paine
#6. The English government is one of those which arose out of a conquest, and not out of society, and consequently it arose over the people; and though it has been much modified from the opportunity of circumstances since the time of William the Conqueror, the country has never yet regenerated itself, and is therefore without a constitution. #Quote by Thomas Paine
English Government quotes by Thomas Paine
#7. In reviewing the history of the English Government, its wars and its taxes, a bystander, not blinded by prejudice nor warped by interest, would declare that taxes were not raised to carry on wars, but that wars were raised to carry on taxes. #Quote by Thomas Paine
English Government quotes by Walter Schellenberg

English Government quotes by Christopher Walken

English Government quotes by James Madison
#13. The interest of the man must be connected with the constitutional rights of the place. It may be a reflection on human nature, that such devices should be necessary to control the abuses of Government. But what is Government itself, but the greatest of all reflections on human nature? #Quote by James Madison
English Government quotes by Walter Scott
#14. He that climbs the tall tree has won right to the fruit, He that leaps the wide gulf should prevail in his suit. #Quote by Walter Scott
English Government quotes by James Duane
#15. Another federal law makes it a felony for any person "knowingly to deliver or cause to be delivered for transmission through the mails or interstate commerce by telegraph, telephone, wireless, or other means of communication false or misleading or knowingly inaccurate reports concerning crop or market information or conditions that affect or tend to affect the price of any commodity in interstate commerce."21 For this "crime," you can be fined up to one million dollars and imprisoned for up to ten years. If you are ever prosecuted for a violation of this law, the way it is written, all the government needs to do to put you behind bars is to prove that you sent anybody a single #Quote by James Duane
English Government quotes by John Eldredge
#16. You would not ask someone with a broken arm to swim the English Channel, so you cannot demand that the broken to live as if they were whole. #Quote by John Eldredge
English Government quotes by Colin Powell
#17. It is the US government's desire for the Iraqi people to lead themselves, not for any outside power to be the leadership for Iraq in the future. There may be some transition period where the international community would have to help the Iraqi people put in place a representative government. But that is the goal, not for the United States, or any other nation, for that matter, who might be in such a coalition, if one is formed, to serve as the leader of the Iraqi nation. #Quote by Colin Powell
English Government quotes by Paul Cornell
#18. The neighbors ... hadn't, thankfully, done the usual by saying that Losley was a pleasant neighbor who'd kept herself to herself. (Always delivered in a tone of voice that suggested that, since keeping oneself to oneself was the single greatest thing one English person could do for another, the suspect ought to be excused whatever psychopathic shit they'd visited on other people.) #Quote by Paul Cornell
English Government quotes by Donna Brazile
#19. People don't trust government, they don't trust Wall Street, they don't trust the church, they don't trust the media. #Quote by Donna Brazile
English Government quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
#20. And now please note that I have raised my right hand. And that means that I'm not kidding, that whatever I say next I believe to be true. So here it goes: The most spiritually splendid American phenomenon of my lifetime wasn't our contribution to the defeat of the Nazis, in which I played such a large part, or Ronald Reagan's overthrow of Godless Communism, in Russia at least.
The most spiritually splendid American phenomenon of my lifetime is how African-American citizens have maintained their dignity and self-respect, despite their having been treated by white Americans, both in and out of government, and simply because of their skin color, as though they were contemptible and loathsome, and even diseased."
"If this isn't nice, I don't know what is. #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut
English Government quotes by Michael J. Behe
#21. What can the theory account for? If it can't explain even color patterns, how much has it been exaggerated? Quite a bit, it turns out. To see the problem more clearly, let's first think about studies of human nutrition. For decades the public was told to avoid foods with a lot of cholesterol. Recently, however, a government panel changed its mind, saying there's no evidence that's harmful. Here's the problem for grand claims about evolution. Science can't tell if cholesterol is bad for modern humans, who can be studied in great detail. Yet if that's too hard, then how can science claim to know what affected plants and animals in the distant past? Ones that can't be studied in real time like people? Ones that encountered myriad environmental influences over millions of years? That's easy to answer: Science can't and doesn't know #Quote by Michael J. Behe
English Government quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#22. The greatest calamity which could befall us would be submission to a government of unlimited powers. #Quote by Thomas Jefferson
English Government quotes by Larry Elder
#23. But did the Founding Fathers ever intend for the federal government to involve itself in education, health care or retirement benefits? The answer, quite clearly, is no. The Constitution, in Article I, Section 8 - which contains the general welfare clause - seeks to restrain federal government, not expand it. #Quote by Larry Elder
English Government quotes by Narendra Modi
#24. The government must nurture an eco-system where the economy is primed for growth; and growth promotes all-rounddevelopment. Where development is employment-generating ; and employment is enabled by skills. Where skills are synced with production; and production is benchmarked to quality. Where quality meets global standards; and meeting global standards drives prosperity. Most importantly, this prosperity is for the welfare of all. That is my concept ofeconomic good governance and all round development. #Quote by Narendra Modi
English Government quotes by John M. McHugh
#25. This election is a critical step in that overall plan - transforming the Iraqi government into a fully constitutional one, able to secure its own borders and ensure the safety of its citizens. #Quote by John M. McHugh
English Government quotes by Sharron Angle
#26. The nation is arming. What are they arming for if it isn't that they are so distrustful of their government? They're afraid they'll have to fight for their liberty in more Second Amendment kinds of ways. #Quote by Sharron Angle
English Government quotes by Lemony Snicket
#27. The French expression 'cul-de-sac' describes what the Baudelaire orphans found when they reached the end of the dark hallway, and like all French expressions, it is most easily understood when you translate each French word into English. The word 'de,' for instance is a very common French world, I would be certain that 'de' means 'of.' The word 'sac' is less common, but I can fairly certain that it means something like 'mysterious circumstances.' And the word 'cul' is such a rare French word that I am forced to guess at its translation, and my guess is that in this case it would mean 'At the end of the dark hallway, the Baudelaire children found an assortment,' so that the expression 'cul-de-sac' here means 'At the end of the dark hallway, the Baudelaire children found an assortment of mysterious circumstances. #Quote by Lemony Snicket
English Government quotes by Faustino Ballve
#28. The excellence of metallic money in free circulation consists in the fact that it renders impossible the abuse of the power of the government to dispose of the possessions of its citizens by means of its monetary policy and thus serves as the solid foundation of economic liberty within each country and of free trade between one country and another. #Quote by Faustino Ballve
English Government quotes by Frederick Douglass
#29. In this denial of the right to participate in government, not merely the degradation of woman and the perpetuation of a great injustice happens, but the maiming and repudiation of one-half of the moral and intellectual power of the government of the world. #Quote by Frederick Douglass
English Government quotes by Evelyn Waugh
#30. I took you out to dinner to warn you of charm. I warned you expressly and in great details of the Flyte family. Charm is the great English blight. It does not exist outside these damp islands. It spots and kills anything it touches. It kills love; it kills art; I greatly fear, Charles, it has killed you. Anthony Blanche to Charles #Quote by Evelyn Waugh
English Government quotes by Herbert Hoover
#31. Governments know that the life of the world cannot be saved if the soul of the world is allowed to be lost. #Quote by Herbert Hoover
English Government quotes by Barack Obama
#32. Education available to millions, government has helped #Quote by Barack Obama
English Government quotes by Ronald Reagan
#33. Every dollar the federal government does not take from us, every decision it does not make for us, will make our economy stronger, our lives more abundant, our future more free. #Quote by Ronald Reagan
English Government quotes by Chuck Palahniuk
#34. In Miss Chen's English class, we learned, 'To be or not to be ... ' but there's a big gray area in between. Maybe in Shakespeare times people only had two options. Griffin Wilson, he knew that the SATs were just the gateway to a big lifetime of bullshit. To get married and college. To paying taxes and trying to raise a kid who's not a school shooter. And Griffin Wilson knew drugs are only a patch. After drugs, you're always going to need more drugs. #Quote by Chuck Palahniuk
English Government quotes by Benjamin Franklin
#35. Governments having failed the people, the people are entirely justified in assuming for themselves and essential role in government. Where a government takes proper measures to protect the people under its care, such a proceeding might have been thought both unnecessary and unjustifiable: But here it is quite the Reverse. #Quote by Benjamin Franklin
English Government quotes by Joshua Cohen
#36. English, unlike Hebrew, is read from left to right - as are clocks. The concepts of clockwise and counterclockwise are universal, irrespective of alphabet. #Quote by Joshua Cohen
English Government quotes by Jedidiah Morse
#37. To the kindly influence of Christianity we owe that degree of civil freedom, and political and social happiness which mankind now enjoys ... Whenever the pillars of Christianity shall be overthrown, our present republican forms of government, and all blessings which flow from them, must fall with them. #Quote by Jedidiah Morse
English Government quotes by H.G.Wells
#38. He came away with an exasperated sense of failure. He denounced parliamentary government root and branch that night. Parliament was doomed. The fact that it had not listened to Rud was only one little conclusive fact in a long indictment. "It has become a series of empty forms," he said. "All over the world, always, the sawdust of reality is running out of the shapes of quasi-public things. Not one British citizen in a thousand watches what is done in Parliament; not one in a thousand Americans follows the discourses of Congress. Interest has gone. Every election in the past thirty years has been fought on gross misunderstandings. #Quote by H.G.Wells
English Government quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#39. With all the imperfections of our present government, it is without comparison the best existing, or that ever did exist. #Quote by Thomas Jefferson
