Europe quotes by P.D. Ouspensky
#1. I saw clearly that something could be found there which had long since ceased to exist in Europe and I considered that the direction I had taken was the right one. But, at the same time, I #Quote by P.D. Ouspensky
Europe quotes by Mario Monti
#2. What will growth policy have to look like in a fiscally compacted Europe? Clearly any illusion of budget stimulated growth policy will have to go away. #Quote by Mario Monti
Europe quotes by Peter Wohlleben
#3. Occasionally, a tree is harvested with care and removed using horses. And so that old trees can fulfill their destinies, 5 to 10 percent of the area is completely protected. Lumber from forests with such species-appropriate tree management can be used with no qualms of conscience. Unfortunately, 95 percent of the current forest practice in Central Europe looks quite different, with the use of heavy machinery and plantation monocultures. #Quote by Peter Wohlleben
Europe quotes by Olga Korbut
#4. Then I was lucky I met with my future husband, and I started new life with my husband, and I was happy again. He was a musician. I start to travel with him through Europe also and around the former Soviet Union. #Quote by Olga Korbut
Europe quotes by Anatoly Chubais
#5. For the whole of Western Europe, I know the business community quite good. #Quote by Anatoly Chubais
Europe quotes by Guy Laliberte
#6. My first dream was to travel. I was attracted to different places, different colors of skin, different food. When I was 18 in 1977, I went to Europe with my accordion and discovered the pleasure of entertaining people. #Quote by Guy Laliberte
Europe quotes by Orlando Figes
#7. Whereas in Europe new ideas were forced to compete against other doctrines and attitudes, with the results that people tended towards healthy skepticism about claims to absolute truth, and a climate of pluralism developed, In Russia there was a cultural void. The censor forbade all political expression, so that when ideas were introduced there they easily assumed the status of holy dogma, a panacea for all the world's ills, beyond questioning or indeed the need to test them in real life. #Quote by Orlando Figes
Europe quotes by John Boyd Orr
#8. 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
Europe quotes by Thomas Pynchon
#9. In Africa, Asia, Amerindia, Oceania, Europe came and established its order of Analysis and Death. What it could not use, it killed or altered. In time the death-colonies grew strong enough to break away. But the impulse to empire, the mission to propagate death, the structure of it, kept on. Now we are in the last phase. American Death has come to occupy Europe. It has learned empire from its old metropolis. But now we have only the structure left us, none of the great rainbow plumes, no fittings of gold, no epic marches over alkali seas. The savages of other continents, corrupted but still resisting in the name of life, have gone on despite everything... while Death and Europe are separate as ever, their love still unconsummated. Death only rules here. #Quote by Thomas Pynchon
Europe quotes by Thomas Piketty
#10. If the twenty-first century turns out to be a time of low (demographic and economic) growth and high return on capital (in a context of heightened international competition for capital resources), or at any rate in countries where these conditions hold true, inheritance will therefore probably again be as important as it was in the nineteenth century. An evolution in this direction is already apparent in France and a number of other European countries, where growth has already slowed considerably in recent decades. For the moment it is less prominent in the United States, essentially because demographic growth there is higher than in Europe. But if growth ultimately slows more or less everywhere in the coming century, as the median demographic forecasts by the United Nations (corroborated by other economic forecasts) suggest it will, then inheritance will probably take on increased importance throughout the world. #Quote by Thomas Piketty
Europe quotes by Juan Manuel Fangio
#11. When I first came out of Argentina to Europe, the flight took 36 hours. Now it takes 12 hours, and the world is still shrinking. #Quote by Juan Manuel Fangio
Europe quotes by Daddy Yankee
#12. 'Limbo' has been one of the greatest hits of my career. A great response all over the world, not just Latinos but people in Europe and America. #Quote by Daddy Yankee
Europe quotes by Yanis Varoufakis
#13. European Union partners never said European Union partners're going to renege on any promises, European Union partners said that European Union partners promises concern a four-year parliamentary term, european Union partners will be spaced out in an optimal way, in a way that is in tune with our bargaining stance in Europe and also with the fiscal position of the Greek state. #Quote by Yanis Varoufakis
Europe quotes by Gore Vidal
#14. 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
Europe quotes by Jamais Cascio
#15. Much as Cold War nuclear strategists could argue about winning a nuclear war by having more survivors, advocates of a Global Warming War might see the United States, Western Europe, or Russia as better able to ride out climate disruption and manipulation than, say, China or the countries of the Middle East. #Quote by Jamais Cascio
Europe quotes by Frantz Fanon
#16. 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
Europe quotes by Percy Heath
#17. I had to go to Europe to tour and he died on the second day of the tour. #Quote by Percy Heath
Europe quotes by Edwin John Dingle
#18. I am one of those who believe that in China we shall see arising a Government whose power will be paramount in the East, and upon the integrity of whose people will depend the peace of Europe. It is much to say. We shall not see it, but our children will. The Government is going to conquer the people. #Quote by Edwin John Dingle
Europe quotes by Adolf Hitler
#19. Under the guidance of the Reich, Europe would speedily have become unified. Once the Jewish poison had been eradicated, unification would have been an easy matter. France and Italy, each defeated in turn at an interval of a few months by the two Germanic Powers, would have been well out of it. Both would have had to renounce their inappropriate aspirations to greatness. At the same time they would have had to renounce their pretensions in North Africa and the Near East; and that would have allowed Europe to pursue a bold policy of friendship towards Islam. (4th February 1945) #Quote by Adolf Hitler
Europe quotes by Pope Francis
#20. 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
Europe quotes by Tony Blair
#21. The threat today is not that of the 1930s. It's not big powers going to war with each other. The ravages which fundamentalist political ideology inflicted on the 20th century are memories. The Cold war is over. Europe is at peace, if not always diplomatically. #Quote by Tony Blair
Europe quotes by Vaclav Klaus
#22. The development of European integration can be divided into two phases. The first era ended with the Maastricht Treaty. It was a liberalization phase, with the main goal of European integration at the time being the removal of various barriers and borders in Europe. The second phase is a homogenization or standardization phase, one that involves regulation from the top and growing control over our lives. This no longer has anything to do with freedom and democracy. #Quote by Vaclav Klaus
Europe quotes by Timothy C.W. Blanning
#23. But the relationship between the between the two cultural paradigms has always been a dialectical, not cyclical. The romantics were not repeating their ancestors. On the contrary, they brought about a cultural revolution comparable in its radicalism and effects with the roughly contemporary American, French, and Industrial Revolutions.
By destroying natural law and by reorienting concern from the work to the artist they tore up the old regime's aesthetic rule book just as thoroughly as any Jacobin [a 18th century political French club] tore down social institutions. In the words of Ernst Troeltsch: "Romanticism too is a revolution, a thorough and genuine revolution: a revolution against the respectability of the bourgeois temper and against a universal equalitarian ethic: a revolution, above all, against the whole of the mathematico-mechanical spirit of science in western Europe, against a conception of Natural Law which sought to blend utility with morality, against the bare abstraction of a universal and equal Humanity." [Unquote Troeltsch]
As will be argued in the subsequent chapters, it was Hegel who captured the essence of this revolution in his pithy definition of romanticism as "absolute inwardness" [absloute Innerlichkeit - in German - אינערליכקייט]. It will also be argued that its prophet was Jean-Jacques Rousseau: if not the most consistent, then certainly the most influential of all the eighteenth-century thinkers.
Writing in 1907, Lytton Strachey ca #Quote by Timothy C.W. Blanning
Europe quotes by Frank Bruno
#24. I still get invitations from all over Europe to speak at dinners, and it's an honour that promoters and charities can use me to create income. #Quote by Frank Bruno
Europe quotes by Gerhard Schroder
#25. Our future begins on January 1 1999. The euro is Europe's key to the 21st century. The era of solo national fiscal and economic policy is over. #Quote by Gerhard Schroder
Europe quotes by Sheri Fink
#26. In the United States, Western Europe and Japan, there is widespread access to dialysis, most of it publicly funded. But in many countries, the majority of patients who need dialysis die without it. #Quote by Sheri Fink
Europe quotes by Louise Rennison
#27. I don't know what's going on with Mum and Dad, but it's weird. Mum keeps asking Dad to do things and he keeps doing them Unfotunately, she hasn't said 'Hand over your money and make your way to Europe! #Quote by Louise Rennison
Europe quotes by Guy De Maupassant
#28. She was, in fact, one of those people of exalted principles; one of those opinionated puritans, of which England produces so many; one of those good and insupportable old maids who haunt the tables d'hôte of every hotel in Europe, who spoil Italy, poison Switzerland, render the charming cities of the Mediterranean uninhabitable, carry everywhere their fantastic manias, their manners of petrified vestals, their indescribable toilets and a certain odor of india-rubber which makes one believe that at night they are slipped into a rubber casing. #Quote by Guy De Maupassant
Europe quotes by Naomi Klein
#29. 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
Europe quotes by Hidetoshi Nakata
#30. I notice that teams are now more interested in Japanese players than when I first went to Europe. #Quote by Hidetoshi Nakata
Europe quotes by Dario Fo
#31. Even before Europe was united in an economic level or was conceived at the level of economic interests and trade, it was culture that united all the countries of Europe. The arts, literature, music are the connecting link of Europe. #Quote by Dario Fo
Europe quotes by Michael Lewis
#32. Between 1845 and 1852 the country experienced the single greatest loss of population in world history: in a nation of 8 million, 1.5 million people left. Another million Irish people starved to death, or died from the effects of hunger. Inside of a decade the nation went from being among the most densely populated in Europe to one of the least. #Quote by Michael Lewis
Europe quotes by Fareed Zakaria
#33. Andrew Moraviscik, one of the best American scholars of Europe, points out that once you exclude translators and clerical workers, the European Commission employs 2.500 officials, "fewer than any moderately sized European city and less than 1 percent of the number employed by the French state alone". As for its undemocratic nature, any new law it wishes to pass needs more than 71 percent of the weighted national-government votes - "a larger proportion than the required to amend the American Constitution". #Quote by Fareed Zakaria
Europe quotes by Stefan Zweig
#34. The Battle of Waterloo is a work of art with tension and drama with its unceasing change from hope to fear and back again, changewhich suddenly dissolves into a moment of extreme catastrophe, a model tragedy because the fate of Europe was determined within this individual fate. #Quote by Stefan Zweig
Europe quotes by Lynne Withey
#35. The custom of confession seemed designed to encourage sin by granting ready forgiveness.
Neither Abigail nor any member of her family ever wavered in their preference for life in America over life in Europe. In France they lived far grander style than they ever lived in Braintree. ...her unshakable belief was that America was superior to Europe - superiority based on simplicity, its supposed lack of extreme wealth and class distinctions, its religion and its emphasis on family #Quote by Lynne Withey
Europe quotes by Pierre Vimont
#36. Foreign policy is about trying to project the European model, its values, its principles, to the outside world. But at the moment, the European model is not as fascinating and as attractive as it may have been a few years ago. We have to be aware of this and take it into account when we try to promote our European system. #Quote by Pierre Vimont
Europe quotes by Octave Mirbeau
#37. After two years' absence she finally returned to chilly Europe, a trifle weary, a trifle sad, disgusted by our banal entertainments, our shrunken landscapes, our impoverished lovemaking. Her soul had remained over there, among the gigantic, poisonous flowers. She missed the mystery of old temples and the ardor of a sky blazing with fever, sensuality and death. The better to relive all these magnificent, raging memories, she became a recluse, spending entire days lying about on tiger skins, playing with those pretty Nepalese knives 'which dissipate one's dreams'. #Quote by Octave Mirbeau
Europe quotes by Francois Hollande
#38. Daesh is the enemy of Europe, and Europe cannot live with the idea that the crises that surround it don't have an effect on it. #Quote by Francois Hollande
Europe quotes by Annie Ward
#39. I feel more like I am in the Middle East than in any recognizable part of Europe. There really are wild dogs everywhere, and they cry all night long. There is a least a miserable, bohemian glamour to the life here. There are a ton of outdoor cafes with people smoking and drinking rakia. Gypsies leading dancing bears around on leashes, attractive people, glue-sniffing teenage gangs - contradictions everywhere. My email is hard-wired into a big, gaping hole in the apartment wall and ants and little spiders keep crawling out. I am trying to keep an open mind. #Quote by Annie Ward
Europe quotes by Hamid Drake
#40. When I started doing improvise music in Europe, in the beginning I thought the way that Europeans were interpreting the reconstruction of deconstruction of this thing that we call jazz - of course it's different than what Americans do, because Europeans have a different history, a different sensibility and so forth - the nature of the creative process itself it's the same; but what comes from that creative process is different, because you have a different history, you have a different society, different language. #Quote by Hamid Drake
Europe quotes by Jason W Clay
#41. There's very good evidence that the average cat in Europe has a larger environmental footprint in its lifetime than the average African. #Quote by Jason W Clay
Europe quotes by LisaRaye McCoy-Misick
#42. Acting is wonderful, but it's not pulling in the type of money that I want. It's not bringing in the type of money that I am used to or the type of money that is going to supply my lifestyle. I'm a leisure girl; I like to be over in Italy or in Europe, you know shopping or vacationing, you know. #Quote by LisaRaye McCoy-Misick
Europe quotes by Margaret Mitchell
#43. Oh, why was he so handsomely blond, so courteously aloof, so maddeningly boring with his talk about Europe and books and music and poetry and things that interested her not at all - and yet so desirable? #Quote by Margaret Mitchell
Europe quotes by Jose Ortega Y Gasset
#44. Under the species of Syndicalism and Fascism there appears for the first time in Europe a type of man who does not want to give reasons or to be right, but simply shows himself resolved to impose his opinions. #Quote by Jose Ortega Y Gasset
Europe quotes by Charles Krauthammer
#45. Winning control of the Senate would allow Republicans to pass a whole range of measures now being held up by Reid, often at the behest of the White House. Make it a major reform agenda. The centerpiece might be tax reform, both corporate and individual. It is needed, popular and doable. Then go for the low-hanging fruit enjoying wide bipartisan support, such as the Keystone XL pipeline and natural gas exports, most especially to Eastern Europe. One could then add border security, energy deregulation and health-care reform that repeals the more onerous Obamacare mandates. #Quote by Charles Krauthammer
Europe quotes by Yanis Varoufakis
#46. 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
Europe quotes by Barbara W. Tuchman
#47. Europe was a heap of swords piled as delicately as jackstraws; one could not be pulled out without moving the others. Under #Quote by Barbara W. Tuchman
Europe quotes by Ann Coulter
#48. Judging by their positions at the time, rather than their post hoc allegations, Democrats adored the Soviet Union. Congressional Democrats repeatedly opposed funding anti-Communist rebels, they opposed Reagan's military build-up, they opposed building a shield to protect America from incoming missiles, they opposed putting missiles in Europe. As a rule, Democrats opposed anything opposed by their cherished Soviet Union. #Quote by Ann Coulter
Europe quotes by Henry Kissinger
#49. Torn between obsessive insecurity and proselytizing zeal, between the requirements of Europe and the temptations of Asia, the Russian Empire always had a role in the European equilibrium but was never emotionally a part of it. #Quote by Henry Kissinger
Europe quotes by Peter Lewis Allen
#50. Perhaps more than any other disease before or since, syphilis in early modern Europe provoked the kind of widespread moral panic that AIDS revived when it struck America in the 1980s. #Quote by Peter Lewis Allen
Europe quotes by Gordon Brown
#51. The patriotism in Britain comes from us being a leader. On jobs, on tax havens, on workers' rights, on the environment. We can be leading Europe ... and it will be to the benefit of every British citizen. #Quote by Gordon Brown
Europe quotes by Zubin Mehta
#52. You might say that Richard Wagner was the Queen Victoria of Europe. He had musical children everywhere! #Quote by Zubin Mehta
Europe quotes by Dan Quayle
#53. We have a firm commitment to NATO, we are a part of NATO. We have a firm commitment to Europe. We are a part of Europe. #Quote by Dan Quayle
Europe quotes by Milan Kundera
#54. Just where was she trying to go back to? Prague? She had even forgotten it existed. To the small town in the west of Europe? No. She simply wanted to go away. Does that mean she wished to die? No, no, not at all. On the contrary, she had a terrific desire to live. Then she must have had some idea about the world she wanted to live in! She had none. All she had left was a tremendous craving for life, and her body. Nothing but these two things, nothing more. She wanted to tear them away from the island and save them. Her body and that craving for life. #Quote by Milan Kundera
Europe quotes by Janne Teller
#55. The Nation State as such is totally a construction: what we feel for it in terms of habits, traditions, countryside or nature could exist without the notion of Nation. #Quote by Janne Teller
Europe quotes by Sylvia Plath
#56. But I wasn't sure. I wasn't sure at all. How did I know that someday―at college, in Europe, somewhere, anywhere―the bell jar, with its stifling distortions, wouldn't descend again? #Quote by Sylvia Plath
Europe quotes by Carla Korbes
#57. There are positives to moving around and changing companies: you put things in perspective; you can compare living and working conditions. Living in one city, you tend to take things for granted; your view is much more narrow. In Europe, a dancer can leave for a year and still keep her original contract. #Quote by Carla Korbes
Europe quotes by Bill Maher
#58. In Europe, Socialism is just another political party. It just means that government takes over certain things like hospitals, prisons, military and schools that should not be run for profit. #Quote by Bill Maher
Europe quotes by Francois Hollande
#59. The German-French friendship is indispensable for Europe. And I will never let myself be carried away to making statements that would change it. #Quote by Francois Hollande
Europe quotes by John Harvey Kellogg
#60. Then, after I came home from Europe, I found I was under condemnation; and I was condemned at that time because I did not endorse the financial policy of the General Conference. #Quote by John Harvey Kellogg
Europe quotes by Matthew S. McCormick
#61. 1. Myth: Without God, life has no meaning.

There are 1.2 billion Chinese who have no predominant religion, and 1 billion people in India who are predominantly Hindu. And 65% of Japan's 127 million people claim to be non-believers. It is laughable to suggest that none of these billions of people are leading meaningful lives.

2. Myth: Prayer works.

Studies have now shown that inter-cessionary prayer has no effect whatsoever of the health or well-being of the subject.

3. Myth: Atheists are immoral.

There are hundreds of millions of non-believers on the planet living normal, decent, moral lives. They love their children, care about others, obey laws, and try to keep from doing harm to others just like everyone else. In fact, in predominantly non-believing countries such as in northern Europe, measures of societal health such as life expectancy at birth, adult literacy, per capita income, education, homicide, suicide, gender equality, and political coercion are better than they are in believing societies.

4. Myth: Belief in God is compatible with science.

In the past, every supernatural or paranormal explanation of phenomena that humans believed turned out to be mistaken; science has always found a physical explanation that revealed that the supernatural view was a myth. Modern organisms evolved from lower life forms, they weren't created 6,000 years ago in the finished state. Fever is not caused by de #Quote by Matthew S. McCormick
Europe quotes by Ina May Gaskin
#62. If birth matters, midwives matter. In Europe, there are hospitals where the cesarean rate is less than 10%, and you'll find midwives in these hospitals, you'll see a lot less re-admissions with infections and complications, and you'll see a lot less injury to mothers. #Quote by Ina May Gaskin
Europe quotes by Edward Heath
#63. There is no question of any erosion of essential national sovereignty. #Quote by Edward Heath
Europe quotes by Jim Goldberg
#64. In Europe, I am an outsider. I don't really understand anything that I am seeing. I can be welcomed into people's homes, I can be met with suspicion, I can be taken somewhere else altogether. There is always wonderment there for me, even if the person I am photographing may not see it or be aware of it. #Quote by Jim Goldberg
Europe quotes by Mustafa Akyol
#65. In the 19th century, when Muslims were looking at Europe as an example, they were independent; they were more self-confident. In the early 20th century, with the fall of the Ottoman Empire, the whole Middle East was colonized. And when you have colonization, what do you have? You have anti-colonization. #Quote by Mustafa Akyol
Europe quotes by Jan Morris
#66. Worldwide travel is not compulsory. Great minds have been fostered entirely by staying close to home. Moses never got further than the Promised Land. Da Vinci and Beethoven never left Europe. Shakespeare hardly went anywhere at all-certainly not to Elsinore or the coast of Bohemia. #Quote by Jan Morris
Europe quotes by Marc Newson
#67. In Japan, Australia, and England there is such a strong youth culture. #Quote by Marc Newson
Europe quotes by Vladimir Lenin
#68. Peace reigned in Europe, but this was because domination over hundreds of millions of people in the colonies by the European nations was sustained only through constant, incessant, interminable wars, which we Europeans do not regard as wars at all, since all too often they resembled, not wars, but brutal massacres, the wholesale slaughter of unarmed peoples. #Quote by Vladimir Lenin
Europe quotes by Herb Ritts
#69. The education, the cultural awareness, is different in Europe, especially in France, from that in the United States. So I think the public will be much more appreciative of many images. #Quote by Herb Ritts
Europe quotes by Queen Victoria
#70. The danger to the country, to Europe, to her vast Empire, which is involved in having all these great interests entrusted to the shaking hand of an old, wild, and incomprehensible man of 82, is very great! #Quote by Queen Victoria
Europe quotes by Anna Porter
#71. Unlike exotic fruit or fancy cars, democracy is best if it is grown locally. It may take root in the common desire of the people who choose to adopt it, but it cannot be imposed from the outside. #Quote by Anna Porter
Europe quotes by Peter A. Lorge
#72. European historians have often, though not unanimously, assumed that European modern warfare was the one true path, a system that developed logically and inevitably from the nature of the advancing technology of guns. Since Europeans by their own definition were the most rational and logical of people, their mode of warfare was also the most rational and logical. Those who did not adopt it after seeing it were being deliberately irrational, or lacked the ability to advance their polity to the point where it could follow it. #Quote by Peter A. Lorge
Europe quotes by Recep Tayyip Erdogan
#73. There is an attempt to tarnish Turkey by using press freedom when it is in fact measures taken against terrorism, i dispute this. Nowhere in Europe or in other countries is there a media that is as free as the press in Turkey. #Quote by Recep Tayyip Erdogan
Europe quotes by Douglas Murray
#74. Nevertheless, the idea that Europeans have simply stopped having enough children and must as a result ensure that the next generation is comprised of immigrants is a disastrous fallacy for several reasons. The first is because of the mistaken assumption that a country's population should always remain the same or indeed continue rising. The nation states of Europe include some of the most densely populated countries on the planet. It is not at all obvious that the quality of life in these countries will improve if the population continues growing. What is more, when migrants arrive in these countries they move to the big cities, not to the remaining sparsely populated areas. So although among European states Britain, along with Belgium and the Netherlands, is one of the most densely populated countries, England taken on its own would be the second most densely populated country in Europe. Migrants tend not to head to the Highlands of Scotland or the wilds of Dartmoor. And so a constantly increasing population causes population problems in areas that are already suffering housing supply problems and where infrastructure like public transport struggles to keep up with swiftly expanding populations. #Quote by Douglas Murray
Europe quotes by King Vidor
#75. In Hollywood, the cameraman lights the star. In Europe, he lights the set. #Quote by King Vidor
Europe quotes by James W. Loewen
#76. So long as our textbooks hide from us the roles that people of color have played in exploration, from at least 6000 BC to the twentieth century, they encourage us to look to Europe and its extensions as the seat of all knowledge and intelligence. So long as they say "discover," they imply that whites are the only people who really matter. So long as they simply celebrate Columbus, rather than teach both sides of his exploit, they encourage us to identify with white Western exploitation rather than study it. #Quote by James W. Loewen
Europe quotes by Luke Harding
#77. As much as 25 per cent of the world's current internet traffic crosses British territory via the cables, en route between the US, Europe, Africa and all points east. Much of the remaining traffic has landing or departure points in the US. So between them Britain and the US play host to most of the planet's burgeoning data flows. #Quote by Luke Harding
Europe quotes by Ana Patricia Botin
#78. I am not confident that Europe can make it. #Quote by Ana Patricia Botin
Europe quotes by Victor Ponta
#79. I see four principles as laying the foundations for the kind of economic recovery Europe needs: fairness, efficiency, solidarity and growth. #Quote by Victor Ponta
Europe quotes by Laurent Fabius
#80. Thanks to the euro, our pockets will soon hold solid evidence of a European identity. We need to build on this, and make the euro more than a currency and Europe more than a territory ... In the next six months, we will talk a lot about political union, and rightly so. Political union is inseparable from economic union. Stronger growth and Euorpean integration are related issues. In both areas we will take concrete steps forward. #Quote by Laurent Fabius
Europe quotes by Bernard Berenson
#81. The average European does not seem to feel free until he succeeds in enslaving and oppressing others. #Quote by Bernard Berenson
Europe quotes by Peter Frankopan
#82. Mecca, for example, was not home to the house of the Buddha, nor a location where Buddhists came once a year on pilgrimage; there was no land where women reproduced by 'exposing themselves naked to the full force of the south wind'. Melons in Spain did not measure six foot in diameter, and could not feed more than twenty men; nor did sheep in Europe grow to the height of a full-grown man, to be cut open each spring in order to allow a dozen pounds of fat to be taken out before being stitched up again with no after-effects. #Quote by Peter Frankopan
Europe quotes by Mary Chapin Carpenter
#83. My sisters and I were fortunate to travel through Asia and Europe at very young ages. We confronted extraordinary beauty in Athens and unspeakable poverty in India. #Quote by Mary Chapin Carpenter
Europe quotes by Anonymous
#84. Given that Russia cannot compete with Europe on the basis of economic efficiency and political appeal, it has to do so with the form of power in which it has some advantage: brute force. #Quote by Anonymous
Europe quotes by J.M.K. Walkow
#85. Blazing Night decided to travel to Europe to collect the information that was not on the net, some of it was hidden in old archives and cemeteries. #Quote by J.M.K. Walkow
Europe quotes by Billy Baldwin
#86. We can recognize and give credit where credit is due, to the debt of taste we owe Europe, but we have taste, too. #Quote by Billy Baldwin
Europe quotes by Orhan Pamuk
#87. If Turkey become a member of the EU, of course Turks would lose a part of this identity, just as Europe would lose a part of its own. It would also be a different Europe then. Accepting Turkey into the EU is an ambitious political endeavor of historical proportions. Europe would become a strong, multi-religious unit. #Quote by Orhan Pamuk
Europe quotes by Mitt Romney
#88. In France, for instance, I'm told that marriage is now frequently contracted in seven-year terms where either party may move on when their term is up. How shallow and how different from the Europe of the past. #Quote by Mitt Romney
Europe quotes by Tawny Lara
#89. If you're not creating, you're disintegrating. #Quote by Tawny Lara
Europe quotes by Shane Smith
#90. If you look not just at the Arab Spring, but at what I call the 'Youth Spring' that has started in Europe, young people are starting to find a voice, and they are not looking to the traditional media to reflect that. #Quote by Shane Smith
Europe quotes by Nathan Oliveira
#91. Though I have considerable interest in Europe and in traveling, I am most content with simply working and allowing the world that I'm creating to unfold before my eyes. #Quote by Nathan Oliveira
Europe quotes by Arthur Seyss-Inquart
#92. The Fuehrer declared that the Jews have played their final act in Europe, and therefore they have played their final act. #Quote by Arthur Seyss-Inquart
Europe quotes by Michael Hudson
#93. Europe is creating the flight of refugees that's tearing it apart politically, and leading rightwing nationalist parties to gain power to withdraw from the Eurozone. #Quote by Michael Hudson
Europe quotes by Shimon Peres
#94. Bulgaria is a true friend of Israel, that stood up to save the Jewish people 70 years ago in Europe, and who stood by throughout the terror attack that took place in Burgas last July. #Quote by Shimon Peres
Europe quotes by Jean-Claude Juncker
#95. I'm always quite amazed that people in Europe become unnerved when two institutions or two people have different views. #Quote by Jean-Claude Juncker
Europe quotes by Graham Greene
#96. (Segura) "...surely you realise there are people who expect to be tortured and others who would be outraged by the idea. One never tortures except by a kind of mutual agreement. ... Dr Hasselbacher does not belong to the torturable class."
(Wormold) "Who does?"
(Segura) "The poor in my own country, in any Latin American country. The poor of Central Europe and the Orient. Of course in your welfare states you have no poor, so you are untorturable. In Cuba the police can deal as harshly as they like with emigres from Latin America and the Baltic States, but not with visitors from your country or Scandinavia. It is an instinctive matter on both sides.... #Quote by Graham Greene
Europe quotes by Florence Nightingale
#97. Women have no sympathy and my experience of women is almost as large as Europe. #Quote by Florence Nightingale
Europe quotes by Tim Winton
#98. In Europe, the dimensions of physical space seemed compressed. The looming vertical presence of mountains cut me off from the horizon. I'd not lived with that kind of spatial curtailment before. Even a city of skyscrapers is more porous than a snowcapped range. Alps form a solid barrier, an obstacle every bit as conceptual as visual and physical. Alpine bluffs and crags just don't rear up, they lean outwards, projecting their mass, and their solidity does not relent. For a West Australian like me, whose default setting is in diametric opposition, and for whom space is the impinging force, the effect is claustrophobic. I think I was constantly and instinctively searching for distances that were unavailable, measuring space and coming up short. #Quote by Tim Winton
Europe quotes by Julia Gillard
#99. I know people are looking at what's happening in Washington and then they also look at events in Europe, in Greece and Portugal and other places and worry about that. #Quote by Julia Gillard
Europe quotes by Charlotte Bingham
#100. There were tons of bronzed Scandinavian types at the Sorbonne. Marvellously blond and healthy and shining white teeth. Funny thing though, because someone told me that if you actually go to Scandinavia none of the people who actually live there look like that. It's just a front they put up when they're abroad. #Quote by Charlotte Bingham
Europe quotes by Mark Twain
#101. In America, we hurry-which is well; but when the day's work is done, we go on thinking of losses and gains, we plan for the morrow, we even carry our business cares to bed with us ... we burn up our energies with these excitements, and either die early or drop into a lean and mean old age at a time of life which they call a man's prime in Europe ... What a robust people, what a nation of thinkers we might be, if we would only lay ourselves on the shelf occasionally and renew our edges! #Quote by Mark Twain
Europe quotes by David Sedaris
#102. You tell yourself that if you traveled alone to Europe this summer, you could surely do the same thing next year, and the year after that. Of course you don't, though, and the next thing you know you're an aging, unemployed elf so desperate for love you spend your evening mooning over a straight alcoholic. #Quote by David Sedaris
Europe quotes by Richard Halverson
#103. In the beginning the church was a fellowship of men and women centering on the living Christ. Then the church moved to Greece where it became a philosophy. Then it moved to Rome where it became an institution. Next, it moved to Europe, where it became a culture. And, finally, it moved to America where it became an enterprise. #Quote by Richard Halverson
Europe quotes by L.M. Montgomery
#104. From Europe. They had been away for three months, having left in February to attend a famous medical congress in London; and certain things, which #Quote by L.M. Montgomery
Europe quotes by Thomas Keneally
#105. High Europe always played at ethnic contempt because it was High Europe, and so had the strength, the authority, to make the racial rules. We great unwashed of the outer world, on the coasts of new continents, though we might ourselves have behaved atrociously to indigenes, were baffled by the determination with which Europe returned to the frenzies of racial myth. Nice boys and not-so-nice boys took up the theme, put on the uniform, did the dirty work. #Quote by Thomas Keneally
Europe quotes by Jacques Santer
#106. It is now up to us to see that we embark on the next stage leading to political unity, which I think is the consequence of economic unity, so that Europe can in the future also play a political role on the international stage, leading even as far as a common defence policy. #Quote by Jacques Santer
Europe quotes by Mary Mapes Dodge
#107. [On the Netherlands:] There is not a richer or more carefully tilled garden spot in the whole world than this leaky, springy little country. #Quote by Mary Mapes Dodge
Europe quotes by Tyler Drumheller
#108. Europe has become the first line of defense for the United States. It has become a training ground for terrorists. #Quote by Tyler Drumheller
Europe quotes by Alexandre Aja
#109. A movie like 'The Last House On The Left' would be very hard to do in Europe. #Quote by Alexandre Aja
Europe quotes by Carlo Rubbia
#110. Around 1960, I moved back to Europe, attracted by the newly founded European Organization for Nuclear Research where, for the first time, the idea of a joint European effort in a field of pure science was to be tried in practice. #Quote by Carlo Rubbia
Europe quotes by Lynn Hudson Parsons
#111. In short, sir, we have been too long subject to the policy of the British merchants. It is time we should become a little more Americanized, and instead of feeding the paupers and laborers of Europe, feed our own, or else in a short time, by continuing our present policy, we shall all be paupers ourselves. #Quote by Lynn Hudson Parsons
Europe quotes by Markus Zusak
#112. As a child in Sydney, my German Mum and my Austrian Dad would spontaneously tell me stories about what they saw and what they did as children. It was like a piece of Europe coming into our house ... Those stories led me to my writing. #Quote by Markus Zusak
Europe quotes by Alan Furst
#113. I expect that my readers have been to Europe, I expect them to have some feeling for a foreign language, I expect them to have read books - there are a lot of people like that! That's my audience. #Quote by Alan Furst
Europe quotes by Noam Chomsky
#114. China is a great manufacturing center, but it's actually mostly an assembly plant. So it assembles parts and components, high technology that comes from the surrounding industrial - more advanced industrial centers - Japan, Taiwan, South Korea, Singapore, the United States, Europe - and it basically assembles them. #Quote by Noam Chomsky
Europe quotes by Martin Jacques
#115. The 21st century will be quite unlike the preceding two centuries, in which power was located in Europe and the U.S., and the rest of the world consisted of mere supplicants and bit players. #Quote by Martin Jacques
Europe quotes by Albert Memmi
#116. Colonized painting, for instance, is balanced between poles. From excessive submission to Europe resulting in depersonalization, it passes to such a violent return to self that it is obnoxious and esthetically illusory. The right balance not being found, the self-accusation continues. Before and during the revolt, the colonized always considers the colonizer as a model or as an antithesis. He continues to struggle against him. He was torn between what he was and what he wanted to be, and now he is making of himself. Nonetheless, the painful discord with himself continues.
In order to witness the colonized's complete cure, his alienation must completely cease. We must await the complete disappearance of colonization
including the period of revolt. #Quote by Albert Memmi
Europe quotes by Milton Steinberg
#117. Jewish nationalism means no more than recognition of the peoplehood of Israel, and of the propriety of that people's being a religio-cultural group in America, a nationality in Eastern Europe, and in Palestine an actualized nation. #Quote by Milton Steinberg
Europe quotes by Neil Tennant
#118. She's been a smack addict, she's had big success in Europe in the '70s, and she's lost everything. She's been rediscovered in the '80s, and as we meet her she's just about to sign a new recording contract. #Quote by Neil Tennant
Europe quotes by Stjepan Mesic
#119. I think we can find a formula that would be to everyone's satisfaction, which would make it possible for Croatia to take some more steps and for Europe to accept us into its midst, and for the talks to start. #Quote by Stjepan Mesic
Europe quotes by Peter Hain
#120. Our task is nothing less than the creation of a new constitutional order for a new united Europe. #Quote by Peter Hain
Europe quotes by Simone Weil
#121. Every new development for the last three centuries has brought men closer to a state of affairs in which absolutely nothing would be recognized in the whole world as possessing a claim to obedience except the authority of the State. The majority of people in Europe obey nothing else. #Quote by Simone Weil
Europe quotes by Thomas Paine
#122. It is not in the power of Britain or of Europe to conquer America, if she do not conquer herself by DELAY and TIMIDITY. #Quote by Thomas Paine
Europe quotes by Woodrow Wilson
#123. When they the American soldiers came, they found fit comrades for their courage and their devotion ... Joining hands with them, the men of America gave the greatest of all gifts - the gift of life and the gift of spirit. #Quote by Woodrow Wilson
Europe quotes by Garry Kasparov
#124. Vladimir Putin uses fascist propaganda to do so. From Ukraine to Syria, he is behaving like the world's new general and celebrating victories, while the American president sits on the sidelines and Europe sleeps. The West's behavior toward Putin is political and moral capitulation. #Quote by Garry Kasparov
Europe quotes by Barbara W. Tuchman
#125. Believing themselves superior in soul, in strength, in energy, industry, and national virtue, Germans felt they deserved the dominion of Europe. #Quote by Barbara W. Tuchman
Europe quotes by Gordon Brown
#126. To make Europe more effective is a worthwhile objective. To make Europe less important in your calculations is a big mistake. #Quote by Gordon Brown
Europe quotes by John William Draper
#127. I have to deplore the systematic manner in which the literature of Europe has continued to put out of sight our obligations to the Muhammadans. Surely they cannot be much longer hidden. Injustice founded on religious rancour and national conceit cannot be perpetuated forever. The Arab has left his intellectual impress on Europe. He has indelibly written it on the heavens as any one may see who reads the names of the stars on a common celestial globe. #Quote by John William Draper
Europe quotes by Lauren Willig
#128. My official field was Tudor-Stuart England; I also considered myself reasonably competent when it came to Renaissance and Reformation Europe. #Quote by Lauren Willig
Europe quotes by John Irving
#129. Three nights at the Hotel zum Storchen --- a decent hotel", Farrokh explained. "Your room overlooks the Limmat. You can walk in the old town, or to the lake. Have you ever been in Europe? #Quote by John Irving
Europe quotes by John Henrik Clarke
#130. The people and the cultures of what is known as Africa are older than the word 'Africa.' According to most records, old and new, Africans are the oldest people on the face of the earth. The people now called Africans not only influenced the Greeks and the Romans, they influenced the early world before there was a place called Europe. #Quote by John Henrik Clarke
Europe quotes by Jared Diamond
#131. In short, Europe's colonization of Africa had nothing to do with differences between European and African peoples themselves, as white racists assume. Rather, it was due to accidents of geography and biogeography - in particular, to the continents' different areas, axes, and suites of wild plant and animal species. That is, the different historical trajectories of Africa and Europe stem ultimately from differences in real estate. #Quote by Jared Diamond
Europe quotes by Anonymous
#132. Peter Kemp observed that 'Literature owes an enormous debt to Henry James's bowels.' As the correspondence revealed, the young Henry suffered from chronic constipation. To alleviate it his parents dispatched him on a grand tour of Europe (doubtless hoping the foreign food would loosen his entrails). #Quote by Anonymous
Europe quotes by Yannick Noah
#133. In the villages in Europe, there are still healers who tell stories. #Quote by Yannick Noah
Europe quotes by I.M. Pei
#134. Luxembourg was and still is today a crossroads, the place where Germany meets the rest of Europe. The country lost part of its territory to Belgium in the 1800s, and during World Wars I and II the German military overran it. Very few people have visited Luxembourg - when I went there and looked at it, I said, my God, it's built on a rock. And within the rock they had a castle, and within the city there's a network of tunnels so the residents could move around and defend themselves. That was of great interest to me. #Quote by I.M. Pei
Europe quotes by Albert Camus
#135. The more extensive the revolution, the more considerable the chances of the war that it
implies. The society born of the revolution of 1789 wanted to fight for Europe. The society born of the
1917 revolution is fighting for universal dominion. Total revolution ends by demanding - we shall see
why - the control of the world. While waiting for this to happen, if happen it must, the history of man, in
one sense, is the sum total of his successive rebellions. In other words, the movement of transition which
can be clearly expressed in terms of space is only an approximation in terms of time. What was devoutly
called, in the nineteenth century, the progressive emancipation of the human race appears, from the
outside, like an uninterrupted series of rebellions, which overreach themselves and try to find their
formulation in ideas, but which have not yet reached the point of definitive revolution where everything
in heaven and on earth would be stabilized. #Quote by Albert Camus
Europe quotes by Daniel Van Basten
#136. Belgium may not have had the imperial might of Germany. Belgium may not have been blessed with the same level of industrial prowess. Belgium certainly didn't have the same manpower. But what the Battle of Liege did manage to showcase to the Allies, Europe and the rest of the world, was that if you had the stomach for battle, a strong enough motive to succeed and an irrevocable love for one's country, these factors alone could drive you to an outcome in the realms of the impossible. #Quote by Daniel Van Basten
Europe quotes by George H. W. Bush
#137. Poland should be strong and prosperous and independent and play its proper role as a great nation in the heart of Europe. #Quote by George H. W. Bush
Europe quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#138. In his book The Captive Mind, written in 1951-2 and published in the West in 1953, the Polish poet and essayist Czeslaw Milosz paid Orwell one of the greatest compliments that one writer has ever bestowed upon another. Milosz had seen the Stalinisation of Eastern Europe from the inside, as a cultural official. He wrote, of his fellow-sufferers:

A few have become acquainted with Orwell's 1984; because it is both difficult to obtain and dangerous to possess, it is known only to certain members of the Inner Party. Orwell fascinates them through his insight into details they know well, and through his use of Swiftian satire. Such a form of writing is forbidden by the New Faith because allegory, by nature manifold in meaning, would trespass beyond the prescriptions of socialist realism and the demands of the censor. Even those who know Orwell only by hearsay are amazed that a writer who never lived in Russia should have so keen a perception into its life.

Only one or two years after Orwell's death, in other words, his book about a secret book circulated only within the Inner Party was itself a secret book circulated only within the Inner Party. #Quote by Christopher Hitchens
Europe quotes by Aleister Crowley
#139. But neither Europe nor Africa can show any such desolation as America. The proudest, stubbornest, bitterest peasant of deserted Spain, the most primitive and superstitious Arab of the remotest oases, are a little more than kin and never less than kind at their worst; whereas in the United States one is almost always conscious of an instinctive lack of sympathy and understanding with even the most charming and cultured people. #Quote by Aleister Crowley
Europe quotes by Adam Kirsch
#140. To those who fought World War II, it was plain enough that Allied bombs were killing huge numbers of German civilians, that Churchill was fighting to preserve imperialism as well as democracy, and that the bulk of the dying in Europe was being done by the Red Army at the service of Stalin. It is only in retrospect that we begin to simplify experience into myth - because we need stories to live by, because we want to honor our ancestors and our country instead of doubting them. In this way, a necessary but terrible war is simplified into a "good war," and we start to feel shy or guilty at any reminder of the moral compromises and outright betrayals that are inseparable from every combat. The best history writing reverses this process, restoring complexity to our sense of the past. #Quote by Adam Kirsch
Europe quotes by Tom Turner
#141. The arts which we now call garden design and landscape design have three separate origins: sacred space, horticultural space and domestic space. Like Homo sapiens, the arts of garden and landscape design probably spread to Europe from West Asia. #Quote by Tom Turner
Europe quotes by Michael Flutie
#142. America has always been the most fertile ground for models - and they were always exported to other countries. When Eastern Europe opened up its doors to the rest of the world, a lot of the girls that were basically working there for $1 a month realized that if they were beautiful and that they could go to Paris and work for $1,000 a day versus the $10,000 that the other girls were demanding. So it created a huge imbalance in the financial structure of how clients could budget out campaigns. The market became flooded. #Quote by Michael Flutie
Europe quotes by Stewart Lee Allen
#143. We all know how it went when Europe changed from a culture addicted to depressants to one high on stimulants [...] Within two hundred years of Europe's first cup, famine and the plague were historical footnotes. Governments became more democratic, slavery vanished, and the standards of living and literacy went through the roof. War became less frequent and more horrible. #Quote by Stewart Lee Allen
Europe quotes by Noam Chomsky
#144. The European reaction to Obama is a European delusion. #Quote by Noam Chomsky
Europe quotes by Mark Kurlansky
#145. Butter has the same improbable myth of origin as cheese, that it accidentally got churned in the animal skins of central Asian nomads. Easily spoiled in sunlight, it was a northern food. The Celts and the Vikings, and their descendants, the Normans, are credited with popularizing butter in northern Europe. Southerners remained suspicious and for centuries maintained that the reason more cases of leprosy were found in the north was that northerners ate butter. Health-conscious southern clergy and noblemen, when they had to travel to northern Europe, would guard against the dreaded disease by bringing their own olive oil with them. #Quote by Mark Kurlansky
Europe quotes by Jesse Jackson
#146. In many ways Africa subsidised America and Europe's development. #Quote by Jesse Jackson
Europe quotes by Jose Rizal
#147. He would have admired one of those fantastic visions, those magic apparitions one sometimes sees in the great theaters of Europe, in which the deafening melodies of an orchestra are made to appear among a deluge of light, a torrent of oriental diamonds and gold surrounded by a diaphanous mist, from which a deity, a sylph comes forward, her feet barely touching the floor encircled and accompanied by a luminous cloud. In her wake flowers shoot forth, a dance bursts out, harmonies awaken, and choirs of devils, nymphs, satyrs, spirits, country maidens, angels, and shepherds dance, shake tambourines gesticulate wildly, and lay tribute at the goddess's feet. #Quote by Jose Rizal
Europe quotes by Sabine Baring-Gould
#148. I have wandered over Europe, have rambled to Iceland, climbed the Alps, been for some years lodged among the marshes of Essex - yet nothing that I have seen has quenched in me the longing after the fresh air, and love of the wild scenery, of Dartmoor. #Quote by Sabine Baring-Gould
Europe quotes by Martin McGuinness
#149. Ireland's place north and south is in Europe and leading change in Europe. #Quote by Martin McGuinness

#150. And Ricardo has no interest in the war coming to a rapid end. He is making a fortune out of it. So long as it continues and Portuguese neutrality is maintained, he will become one of the richest men in Europe. #Quote by Michael Bloch
Europe quotes by Christopher De Bellaigue
#151. He [Mosaddegh] was part of a generation of Iranian men who were inspired by Europe but who expected their wives to remain Iranian. (p37) #Quote by Christopher De Bellaigue
Europe quotes by Robert Kagan
#152. In my view, America has never had the opportunity to enter paradise. Europe enjoys the paradise it enjoys, in part because the United States provides the overall security that allows Europe to live in a system where military power is not a major issue. #Quote by Robert Kagan
Europe quotes by Andrew Bird
#153. There's been this perception that Europeans still hold on to, that they discover the real talented ones in American culture and give them proper credit and that's not true anymore - it used to be. A lot of jazz musicians would get respect in Europe. #Quote by Andrew Bird
Europe quotes by Michael Hudson
#154. It's amazing that Europe says, "What are we going to do with these refugees?" It's as if it doesn't realize that being part of NATO and bombing these countries forces them to choose to live by fleeing, or to stay and get bombed. #Quote by Michael Hudson
Europe quotes by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
#155. American culture encourages the process of failure, unlike the cultures of Europe and Asia where failure is met with stigma and embarrassment. America's specialty is to take these small risks for the rest of the world, which explains this country's disproportionate share in innovations. #Quote by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
Europe quotes by Edmund White
#156. The school was nothing but reminiscence - of an Italian hill town, a French abbey, an English academy, the different sources improbably but convincingly melded into a fantasy about the classic sites of Europe as imagined by exiles from cold peripheral lands, nostalgia about somebody else's past. #Quote by Edmund White
Europe quotes by Michael Hirst
#157. If you're in America or Europe, walk for three blocks, and you'll pass about 14 Vikings. Their reach was immense. #Quote by Michael Hirst
Europe quotes by Richard Stoneman
#158. King Alexander, the son of Ammon and of Philip the king, also supreme king of Europe and all Asia, Egypt and Libya, to the Tyrians who are as nothing. #Quote by Richard Stoneman
Europe quotes by Mango Wodzak
#159. If factory farming for meat of cats, dogs, squirrels, swans and guinea pigs began in western Europe, you can be sure some of the bacon and sausage gorging public would be out protesting. Although other cultures regularly eat some or all of these animals, everybody draws the line somewhere. Most would balk at the idea of eating dolphin, gorilla, orangutan or human flesh, but really the differences between the species are minimal and whether we are a rabbit, horse, chimpanzee or human, we all have an innate desire to live our lives freely and avoid violation. #Quote by Mango Wodzak
Europe quotes by Sylvia Plath
#160. It will be long before everyone is wiped out. People live in war time, they always have. There was terror down through history - and the men who saw the Spanish Armada sail over the rim of the world, who saw the Black death wipe out half of Europe, those men were frightened, terrified. But though they lived and died in fear, I am here; we have built again. And so I will belong to a dark age, and historians will say "We have few documents to show how the common people lived at this time. Records lead us to believe that a majority were killed. But there were glorious men." And school children will sigh and learn the names of Truman and Senator McCarthy. Oh, it is hard for me to reconcile myself to this. But maybe this is why I am a girl - - - so I can live more safely than the boys I have known and envied, so I can bear children, and instill in them the biting eating desire to learn and love life which I will never quite fulfill, because there isn't time, because there isn't time at all, but instead the quick desperate fear, the ticking clock, and the snow which comes too suddenly upon the summer. Sure, I'm dramatic and sloppily semi-cynical and semi-sentimental. But in leisure years I could grow and choose my way. Now I am living on the edge. We all are on the brink, and it takes a lot of nerve, a lot of energy, to teeter on the edge, looking over, looking down into the windy blackness and not being quite able to make out, through the yellow, stinking mist, just what lies belo #Quote by Sylvia Plath
Europe quotes by Sergei Lavrov
#161. NATO has a special relationship with countries far away from Europe: Australia, Japan, South Korea. They have joint projects and programmes which are being implemented without these countries becoming members of NATO. #Quote by Sergei Lavrov
Europe quotes by Robert Dessaix
#162. I think that in this globalised world, the local is going to become more and more important - it is a paradox. You see it in Western Europe more and more. Eastern Europe is still coming out of the Soviet uniform cultural era, but this kind of separation and nationalism is very obvious now in Western Europe. #Quote by Robert Dessaix
Europe quotes by William Odom
#163. The whole notion of land property rights in the Arab world is different from that in Europe. #Quote by William Odom
Europe quotes by Carol P. Christ
#164. In Old Europe and Ancient Crete, women were respected for their roles in the discovery of agriculture and for inventing the arts of weaving and pottery making. #Quote by Carol P. Christ
Europe quotes by Zbigniew Brzezinski
#165. Russia's only real geostrategic option - the option that would give Russia a realistic international role and also maximize the opportunity of transforming and socially modernizing itself - is Europe. #Quote by Zbigniew Brzezinski
Europe quotes by Abraham Lincoln
#166. From whence shall we expect the approach of danger? Shall some trans-Atlantic military giant step the earth and crush us at a blow? Never. All the armies of Europe and Asia ... could not by force take a drink from the Ohio River or make a track on the Blue Ridge in the trial of a thousand years. No, if destruction be our lot we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of free men we will live forever or die by suicide. #Quote by Abraham Lincoln
Europe quotes by Konstantinos Karamanlis

Europe quotes by Justin Halpern
#168. On My Trip to Europe I know you think you're going to get all kinds of laid. It's not a magic place, it's the same as here. Don't be stupid. #Quote by Justin Halpern
Europe quotes by Paul Lendvai
#169. The Magyars were claimed to be descendants of the hideous Asiatic Scythians of legend, half men and half apes, a witches' brood begotten by devils. The sources - chronicles and annals - were all copied from one another, not on the basis of eyewitness accounts but following the characterisation of older chroniclers. Soon the "new barbarians" became identified with the Huns, who are remembered only too well in Europe. Attila had, after all, become in Western eyes the embodiment of barbarism, the anti-Christ, and at the time of the Renaissance he already appeared in Italian legends as the king of the Hungarians, constantly hatching plots, and depicted with dog ears, the bestial offspring of a greyhound and a princess locked up in a tower.12 #Quote by Paul Lendvai
Europe quotes by John Hutton

Europe quotes by Thomas Munro
#173. If a good system of agriculture, unrivaled manufacturing skill, a capacity to produce whatever can contribute to either convenience or luxury, schools established in every village for teaching reading, writing, and arithmetic, the general practice of hospitality and charity amongst each other, and above all, a treatment of the female sex full of confidence, respect, and delicacy, are among the signs which denote a civilized people – then the Hindus are not inferior to the nations of Europe, and if civilization is to become an article of trade between England and India, I am convinced that England will gain by the import cargo. #Quote by Thomas Munro
Europe quotes by Pankaj Mishra
#174. Ordinary Muslims in Europe, who suffer from the demoralisation caused by living as perennial objects of suspicion and contempt, are far from thinking of themselves as a politically powerful, or even cohesive, community, not to speak of conquerors of Europe. #Quote by Pankaj Mishra
Europe quotes by James Morcan
#175. All truth-seekers should study the genocide that was the Holocaust and ask themselves how on Earth this event was 'allowed' to occur, keeping in mind allowed is the correct term as there was no shortage of witnesses, including those all over Europe who stood by and did nothing to intervene. If those bystanders hadn't just stood by, perhaps the history books would tell a different story. #Quote by James Morcan
Europe quotes by Ashley Hinshaw
#176. When I first moved to New York, I moved all over because I never knew where I would be or if I was going to Europe, so I would sublet apartments. It was miserable because I was constantly moving. #Quote by Ashley Hinshaw
Europe quotes by Vladimir Lorchenkov
#177. Do whatever you want, as long as you say you want to be a part of Europe. And then you'll get away with anything. Look, the Albanians do God knows what. They sell weapons and women, they take hostages. And the world forgives then, as long as they're pro-Europe and pro-NATO. They'll forgive us, too. That's the trend in today's world. #Quote by Vladimir Lorchenkov
Europe quotes by Luis Suarez
#178. Sometimes English football takes pride in having the lowest yellow-card count in Europe, but of course it will have if you can take someone's leg off and still not be booked. #Quote by Luis Suarez
Europe quotes by Zephyr Teachout
#179. In Europe, populism is sort of a dirty word, but we have this wonderful history of populism in America, including the abolitionist populists and the white and black populists working together in the nineteenth century. #Quote by Zephyr Teachout
Europe quotes by Jean-Baptiste Say
#180. A much larger value is consumed in lettuces than in pineapples,throughout Europe at large; and the superb shawls of Cachemere are, in France, a very poor object in trade, in comparison with the plain cotton goods of Rouen. #Quote by Jean-Baptiste Say
Europe quotes by John Prescott
#181. The choice is not normally between the north and south. It might be between Britain and Europe. #Quote by John Prescott
Europe quotes by Rachel Maddow
#182. Six months after 9/11, Jean-Marie Le Pen was almost elected president of France. There were a number of leaders and a number of parties running in the French national elections that year in the spring of 2002. But it ended up being not just a shock across France, and not just a shock across Europe. But it ended up being almost a worldwide shock when in the spring of 2002, Jean-Marie Le Pen came in second in those national elections. That put him in a two-man runoff for the presidency of France, spring of 2002. #Quote by Rachel Maddow
Europe quotes by Martin Jacques
#183. When Europe dominated, there were no or few feedback loops. Or, to put it another way, there were few, if any, consequences for its behaviour towards the non-western world: relations were simply too unequal. #Quote by Martin Jacques
Europe quotes by Eric Schlosser
#184. The spread of BSE [mad cow disease] in Europe has revealed how secret alliances between agribusiness and government can endanger the public health. It has shown how the desire for profit can overrule every other consideration. British agricultural officials were concerned as early as 1987 that eating meat from BSE-infected cattle might pose a risk to human beings. That information was suppressed for years, and the possibility of any health risk was strenuously denied, in order to protect exports of British beef. Scientists who disagreed with the official line were publicly attacked and kept off government committees investigating BSE. Official denials of the truth delayed important health measures. #Quote by Eric Schlosser
Europe quotes by Benjamin Franklin
#185. Furnished as all Europe now is with Academies of Science, with nice instruments and the spirit of experiment, the progress of human knowledge will be rapid and discoveries made of which we have at present no conception. I begin to be almost sorry I was born so soon, since I cannot have the happiness of knowing what will be known a hundred years hence. #Quote by Benjamin Franklin
Europe quotes by John G. D. Clark
#186. To be awarded a prize which takes its name from an illustrious Dutchman who at the same time was a great citizen of Europe and through his writings did so much to open up our modern world of sensibility and thought is indeed a most signal honour. #Quote by John G. D. Clark
Europe quotes by Salman Rushdie
#187. If Turkey wants to join Europe, it will have to become a European country, and that might take a long time. #Quote by Salman Rushdie
Europe quotes by Barack Obama
#188. The United States wants a strong United Kingdom as a partner. And the United Kingdom is at its best when it's helping to lead a strong Europe. #Quote by Barack Obama
Europe quotes by Ursula K. Le Guin
#189. The part of the tradition that I knew best was mostly written (or rewritten for children) in England and northern Europe. The principal characters were men. If the story was heroic, the hero was a white man; most dark-skinned people were inferior or evil. If there was a woman in the story, she was a passive object of desire and rescue (a beautiful blond princess); active women (dark, witches) usually caused destruction or tragedy. Anyway, the stories weren't about the women. They were about men, what men did, and what was important to men. #Quote by Ursula K. Le Guin
Europe quotes by Paul Samuelson
#190. Companies are not charitable enterprises: They hire workers to make profits. In the United States, this logic still works. In Europe, it hardly does. #Quote by Paul Samuelson
Europe quotes by Sebastian Barry
#191. And all those boys of Europe born in those times, and thereabouts those times, Russian, French, Belgian, Serbian, Irish, English, Scottish, Welsh, Italian, Prussian, German, Austrian, Turkish – and Canadian, Australian, American, Zulu, Gurkha, Cossack, and all the rest – their fate was written in a ferocious chapter in the book of life, certainly. Those millions of mothers and their million gallons of mother's milk, millions of instances of small talk and baby talk, beatings and kisses, ganseys and shoes, piled up in history in great ruined heaps, with a loud and broken music, human stories told for nothing, for ashes, for death's amusement, flung on the mighty scrapheap of souls, all those million boys in all their humours to be milled by the millstones of a coming war. #Quote by Sebastian Barry
Europe quotes by Mario Van Peebles
#192. I had unusual parents. We'd been to Europe. We'd been in the theater. We were sort of like the Addams Family. #Quote by Mario Van Peebles
Europe quotes by George Soros
#193. Germany will always do the minimum to preserve the euro. Doing the minimum, though, will perpetuate the situation where the debtor countries in Europe have to pay tremendous premiums to refinance their debt. The result will be a Europe in which Germany is seen as an imperial power that will not be loved and admired by the rest of Europe - but hated and resisted, because it will perceived as an oppressive power. #Quote by George Soros
Europe quotes by Bangambiki Habyarimana
#194. I asked a man who took a death boat to Europe across the treachelous waters of the Mediterranean from Libya
"Why are you taking this death boat".
"I am already dead." He said. This is my coffin. If I succeed to get to the other side, I get a new life. If I fail, I loose nothing. I remain what I am now: Dead. #Quote by Bangambiki Habyarimana
Europe quotes by Paul Aertker
#195. Lucas crept around the building to the back parking lot. And there it was, just like he had seen from the roof - a baby lying in a shopping cart. Lucas's mind went negative. What if the kid was dead? He tried to think if he had ever seen a dead person before. He'd never been to a funeral, and he knew he had never seen a dead baby. And he definitely didn't want to.
His heart pounded in his chest.
Lucas walked, almost tiptoed, toward the shopping cart. The last of the parking lot lights flickered out, leav-ing only the early morning sun. He moved across the blacktop, making sure not to step on a white line. At this moment he needed all the luck he could muster. As he got closer to the cart, he held his breath and swallowed. Then he grabbed the shopping cart handle and looked over into the basket.
He gasped. #Quote by Paul Aertker
Europe quotes by Fareed Zakaria
#196. We all accuse Vladimir Putin of Cold War nostalgia, but Washington's elites - politicians and intellectuals - miss the old days as well. They wish for the world in which the United States was utterly dominant over its friends, its foes were to be shunned entirely, and the challenges were stark, moral, and vital. Today's world is messy and complicated. China is one of our biggest trading partners and our looming geopolitical rival. Russia is a surly spoiler, but it has a globalized middle class and has created ties in Europe. #Quote by Fareed Zakaria
Europe quotes by Sue Wicks
#197. When I went to college, we had a very good local following, but stations only televised two or three NCAA games a season. And when I went to Europe, once in a while we had a good crowd, but usually not. #Quote by Sue Wicks
Europe quotes by Johan Huizinga
#198. In Europe art has to a large degree taken the place of religion. In America it seems rather to be science. #Quote by Johan Huizinga
Europe quotes by I.M. Pei
#199. I travel to the Middle East, I travel to China, I travel to Europe. It's all very rewarding - the only problem is the travel is getting more and more difficult for me now. Ten years ago I would have enjoyed it a lot more. #Quote by I.M. Pei
Europe quotes by H.G.Wells
#200. To Europe she was America. To America she was the gateway to the earth. But to tell the story of New York would be to write a social history of the world. #Quote by H.G.Wells
