European Countries quotes by Timothy Garton Ash
#1. Starting from the ruins of the Second World War, we - all Europeans said, after centuries of fighting each other, we're going to build permanent arrangements in which peace between European countries is secured, freedom is secured, and growing prosperity. And that's what we have done over the last 70 years. #Quote by Timothy Garton Ash
European Countries quotes by John Boyd Orr
#2. 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
European Countries quotes by Thomas Piketty
#3. 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
European Countries quotes by James Mirrlees
#4. I think, in effect, in most of the European countries, the total marginal tax rate is over 50 percent; that's to say, add on other taxes like VAT to the income tax. #Quote by James Mirrlees
European Countries quotes by Mark Collett
#5. There's not a European country the Jews haven't been thrown out of. When it happens that many times, it's not just persecution. THERE'S NO SMOKE WITHOUT FIRE. #Quote by Mark Collett
European Countries quotes by Martin Jacques
#6. For 200 years, the dominant powers have also been the colonial powers: the European countries, the U.S. and Japan. They have never been required to pay their dues for what they did to those whom they possessed and treated with contempt. #Quote by Martin Jacques
European Countries quotes by Timothy Snyder
#7. The poet Czeslaw Milosz wrote in 1953 that 'only in the middle of the twentieth century did the inhabitants of many European countries come to understand, usually by way of suffering, that complex and difficult philosophy books have a direct influence on their fate. #Quote by Timothy Snyder
European Countries quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#8. Singapore, Switzerland, Austria, and many of the European countries that we all admire today, don't have one tenth of the natural resources that African countries have. Yet, because of the principles of truth and honesty, they have been able to build some of the most civilized societies in the modern world. #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
European Countries quotes by Charles Kennedy
#9. By common consent, most European countries support the maintenance of robust welfare states and are comfortable with taxation systems that support them. #Quote by Charles Kennedy
European Countries quotes by Victor Hugo
#10. A day will come when all nations on our continent will form a European brotherhood ... A day will come when we shall see ... the United States of America and the United States of Europe face to face, reaching out for each other across the seas. #Quote by Victor Hugo
European Countries quotes by Geoff Hoon
#11. European countries need to make more of a contribution in terms of defence capabilities. It is not fair?to keep turning to our ally in the United States to contribute military forces to problems which involve our own security. #Quote by Geoff Hoon
European Countries quotes by Bill Maher
#12. Forget bringing the troops home from Iraq. We need to get the troops home from World War II. Can anybody tell me why, in 2009, we still have more than sixty thousand troops in Germany and thirty thousand in Japan? At some point, these people are going to have to learn to rape themselves. Our soldiers have been in Germany so long they now wear shorts with black socks. You know that crazy soldier hiding in the cave on Iwo Jima who doesn't know the war is over? That's us.

Bush and Cheney used to love to keep Americans all sphinctered-up on the notion that terrorists might follow us home. But actually, we're the people who go to your home and then never leave. Here's the facts: The Republic of America has more than five hundred thousand military personnel deployed on more than seven hundred bases, with troops in one hundred fifty countries - we're like McDonald's with tanks - including thirty-seven European countries - because you never know when Portugal might invade Euro Disney. And this doesn't even count our secret torture prisons, which are all over the place, but you never really see them until someone brings you there - kinda like IHOP.

Of course, Americans would never stand for this in reverse - we can barely stand letting Mexicans in to do the landscaping. Can you imagine if there were twenty thousand armed Guatemalans on a base in San Ber-nardino right now? Lou Dobbs would become a suicide bomber.

And why? How did this country get stuck #Quote by Bill Maher
European Countries quotes by Phyllis Schlafly
#13. The European nations' loss of sovereignty to the EU should be a warning to Americans. #Quote by Phyllis Schlafly
European Countries quotes by Anna Quindlen
#14. The unemployment rate among the young in the United States is still very disconcerting, although we all know it's nowhere near as bad as it is in some of the European countries, where in some places it approaches 50 percent. #Quote by Anna Quindlen
European Countries quotes by Susan Sontag
#15. (Part of the self-definition of Europe and the neo-European countries is that it, the First World, is where major calamities are history-making, transformative, while in poor, African or Asian countries they are part of a cycle, and therefore something like an aspect of nature.) Nor has AIDS become so publicized because, as some have suggested, in rich countries the illness first afflicted a group of people who were all men, almost all white, many of them educated, articulate, and knowledgeable about how to lobby and organize for public attention and resources devoted to the disease. AIDS occupies such a large part in our awareness because of what it has been taken to represent. It seems the very model of all the catastrophes privileged populations feel await them. What #Quote by Susan Sontag
European Countries quotes by Hannah Arendt
#16. They therefore never knew how to evaluate antisemitism, or rather never recognized the moment when social discrimination changed into a political argument. For more than a hundred years, antisemitism had slowly and gradually made its way into almost all social strata in almost all European countries until it emerged suddenly as the one issue upon which an almost unified opinion could be achieved. #Quote by Hannah Arendt
European Countries quotes by Joseph E. Stiglitz
#17. The U.S. incarceration rate is the world's highest and some nine to ten times that of many European countries. Almost 1 in 100 American adults is behind bars.61 Some U.S. states spend as much on their prisons as they do on their universities. #Quote by Joseph E. Stiglitz
European Countries quotes by Carlos Salinas De Gortari
#18. A single tree in the tropical forest in the south of Mexico has more different species than some European countries. #Quote by Carlos Salinas De Gortari
European Countries quotes by Charles Olson
#19. I was playing catch with the European audience. #Quote by Charles Olson
European Countries quotes by D.H. Lawrence
#20. In America the cohesion was a matter of choice and will. But in Europe it was organic. #Quote by D.H. Lawrence
European Countries quotes by Aleksander Kwasniewski
#21. To be in the EU, it means to have same rules of ... for economy, for social life, to be together in the majority of European countries. #Quote by Aleksander Kwasniewski
European Countries quotes by Francois Hollande
#22. A large country with such outstanding economic performance as Germany cannot forget that it owes some of its success to demand from other European countries. #Quote by Francois Hollande
European Countries quotes by Elizabeth Camden
#23. Who is your father?" "The Duke of Vlaska." There was no hesitation in his voice, just a simple statement of fact. "I thought he was dead," Libby said. "Are you suggesting you are the current Duke of Vlaska?" This time he looked directly at her, although in the dimness of the barn all she could see was a face carved in shadows and a curious glint in his eyes. "Succession in Romania works the same as in the other European countries. The oldest son is the Duke's heir." "And are you his oldest son?" "I am. #Quote by Elizabeth Camden
European Countries quotes by Hannah Arendt
#24. The totalitarian movements aim at and succeed in organizing masses - not classes, like the old interest parties of the Continental nation-states; citizens with opinions about, and interests in, the handling of public affairs, like the parties of Anglo-Saxon countries. While all political groups depend upon proportionate strength, the totalitarian movements depend on the sheer force of numbers to such an extent that totalitarian regimes seem impossible, even under otherwise favorable circumstances, in countries with relatively small populations. After the first World War, a deeply antidemocratic, prodictatorial wave of semitotalitarian and totalitarian movements swept Europe; Fascist movements spread from Italy to nearly all Central and Eastern European countries (the Czech part of Czechoslovakia was one of the notable exceptions); yet even Mussolini, who was so fond of the term "totalitarian state," did not attempt to establish a full-fledged totalitarian regime and contented himself with dictatorship and one-party rule. Similar nontotalitarian dictatorships sprang up in prewar Rumania, Poland, the Baltic states, Hungary, Portugal and Franco Spain. The Nazis, who had an unfailing instinct for such differences, used to comment contemptuously on the shortcomings of their Fascist allies while their genuine admiration for the Bolshevik regime in Russia (and the Communist Party in Germany) was matched and checked only by their contempt for Eastern European races. #Quote by Hannah Arendt
European Countries quotes by Peter Medawar
#25. The lives of scientists, considered as Lives, almost always make dull reading. For one thing, the careers of the famous and the merely ordinary fall into much the same pattern, give or take an honorary degree or two, or (in European countries) an honorific order. It could be hardly otherwise. Academics can only seldom lead lives that are spacious or exciting in a worldly sense. They need laboratories or libraries and the company of other academics. Their work is in no way made deeper or more cogent by privation, distress or worldly buffetings. Their private lives may be unhappy, strangely mixed up or comic, but not in ways that tell us anything special about the nature or direction of their work. Academics lie outside the devastation area of the literary convention according to which the lives of artists and men of letters are intrinsically interesting, a source of cultural insight in themselves. If a scientist were to cut his ear off, no one would take it as evidence of a heightened sensibility; if a historian were to fail (as Ruskin did) to consummate his marriage, we should not suppose that our understanding of historical scholarship had somehow been enriched. #Quote by Peter Medawar
European Countries quotes by Allan G. Johnson
#26. One way to see the constructed nature of reality is to notice how the definitions of different "races" change historically, by including groups at one time that were excluded in another. The Irish, for example, were long considered by the dominant white Anglo-Saxon Protestants of England and the United States to be members of a nonwhite "race", as were Italians, Jews, and people from a number of Eastern European countries. As such, immigrants from these groups to England and the United States were excluded and subjugated and exploited in much the same way that blacks were. #Quote by Allan G. Johnson
European Countries quotes by Vaclav Klaus
#27. It is obvious that the monetary union among 17 very different European countries does not work. As an economist, I know that the Eurozone is not an optimum currency area, as defined in economic theory. #Quote by Vaclav Klaus
European Countries quotes by Peter Hain
#28. I strongly support European sanctions against Mugabe and his ruling clique. We must do all in our power to help the people of Zimbabwe achieve their freedom and prosperity once again. #Quote by Peter Hain
European Countries quotes by Leon Trotsky
#29. England is nothing but the last ward of the European madhouse, and quite possibly it will prove to be the ward for particularly violent cases. #Quote by Leon Trotsky
European Countries quotes by William Labov
#30. But unlike European countries, America has never finished a map of the United States, only the eastern United States is covered and a few spots here and there. #Quote by William Labov
European Countries quotes by Michelle Alexander
#31. Forty-eight states and the District of Columbia prohibit inmates from voting while incarcerated for a felony offense. Only two states - Maine and Vermont - permit inmates to vote. The vast majority of states continue to withhold the right to vote when prisoners are released on parole. Even after the term of punishment expires, some states deny the right to vote for a period ranging from a number of years to the rest of one's life.

This is far from the norm in other countries - like Germany, for instance, which allows (and even encourages) prisoners to vote. In fact, about half of European countries allow all incarcerated people to vote, while others disqualify only a small number of prisoners from the polls. Prisoners vote either in their correctional facilities or by some version of absentee ballot in their town of previous residence. Almost all of the countries that place some restrictions on voting in prison are in Eastern Europe, part of the former Communist bloc.

No other country in the world disenfranchises people who are released from prison in a manner even remotely resembling the United States. In fact, the United Nations Human Rights Committee has charged that U.S. disenfranchisement policies are discriminatory and violate international law. In those few European countries that permit limited postprison disqualification, the sanction is very narrowly tailored and the number of people disenfranchised is probably in the dozens or hundreds. In th #Quote by Michelle Alexander
European Countries quotes by Bill Bailey
#32. Not so great in England at the moment; in an online poll we came last, we actually came bottom of European countries for quality of life, because of things like the weather, obviously, late retirement, poor holiday, poor public services, poor health service; it's basically just a kind of grey, godless wilderness, full of cold pies and broken dreams. #Quote by Bill Bailey
European Countries quotes by Alan Dershowitz
#33. It is the wall of separation between church and state ... that is largely responsible for religion thriving in this country, as compared to those European countries in which church and state have been united, resulting in opposition to the church by those who disapprove of the government. #Quote by Alan Dershowitz
European Countries quotes by Katie Savage
#34. December 6 is noted on Catholic calendars as the Feast of Saint Nicholas and it usually falls within the first week of Advent. In many European countries, the Feast is an even greater celebration than Christmas. It is a day to remember the saint's dedication to giving to those who really needed it, and doing it in a way that drew as little attention to himself as possible. #Quote by Katie Savage
European Countries quotes by Ambrose Bierce
#35. RIGHTEOUSNESS, n. A sturdy virtue that was once found among the Pantidoodles inhabiting the lower part of the peninsula of Oque. Some feeble attempts were made by returned missionaries to introduce it into several European countries . #Quote by Ambrose Bierce
European Countries quotes by Hillary Clinton
#36. What Secretary Ash Carter is looking at is the constant pressure that Russia's putting on our European allies. The way that Russia is trying to move the boundaries of the post-World War II Europe. The way that he is trying to set European countries against one another, seizing territory, holding it in Crimea. Beginning to explore whether they could make some inroads in the Baltics. #Quote by Hillary Clinton
European Countries quotes by Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
#37. If the Holocaust didn't take place, why then did this regime of occupation come about? Why do the European countries commit themselves to defending this regime? Permit me to make one more point. We are of the opinion that, if an historical occurrence conforms to the truth, this truth will be revealed all the more clearly if there is more research into it and more discussion about it. #Quote by Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
European Countries quotes by Otto Von Bismarck
#38. Whoever speaks of Europe is wrong: it is a geographical expression. #Quote by Otto Von Bismarck
European Countries quotes by Elton Gallegly
#39. Horsemeat in many European and Asian countries is consumed as a delicacy. #Quote by Elton Gallegly
European Countries quotes by Daniel J. Boorstin
#40. Until now when we have started to talk about the uniqueness of America we have almost always ended by comparing ourselves to Europe. Toward her we have felt all the attraction and repulsions of Oedipus #Quote by Daniel J. Boorstin
European Countries quotes by Jean-Claude Juncker
#41. You can't deepen the European Union against the wishes of the European countries. #Quote by Jean-Claude Juncker
European Countries quotes by Madison Grant
#42. Africa north of the Sahara, from a zoological point of view, is now, and has been since early Tertiary times, a part of Europe. This is true both of animals and of the races of man. #Quote by Madison Grant
European Countries quotes by Mikheil Saakashvili
#43. Georgia is not just a European country, but one of the most ancient European countries. #Quote by Mikheil Saakashvili
European Countries quotes by Jim Leach
#44. America is very decentralized in how it supports the humanities, unlike European countries where virtually everything stems from the central government. #Quote by Jim Leach
European Countries quotes by Fredric Jameson
#45. In most of the European countries - France stands out in its resistance to this particular form of American cultural imperialism - the national film industries were forced onto the defensive after the war by such binding agreements. #Quote by Fredric Jameson
European Countries quotes by Czeslaw Milosz
#46. It was only toward the middle of the twentieth century that the inhabitants
of many European countries came, in general unpleasantly, to the
realization that their fate could be influenced directly by intricate and
abstruse books of philosophy. #Quote by Czeslaw Milosz
European Countries quotes by Hannah Arendt
#47. Naturalization, on the other hand, also proved to be a failure. The whole naturalization system of European countries fell apart when it was confronted with stateless people, and this for the same reasons that the right of asylum had been set aside. Essentially naturalization was an appendage to the nation-state's legislation that reckoned only with "nationals," people born in its territory and citizens by birth. Naturalization was needed in exceptional cases, for single individuals whom circumstances might have driven into a foreign territory. The whole process broke down when it became a question of handling mass applications for naturalization: even from the purely administrative point of view, no European civil service could possibly have dealt with the problem. Instead of naturalizing at least a small portion of the new arrivals, the countries began to cancel earlier naturalizations, partly because of general panic and partly because the arrival of great masses of newcomers actually changed the always precarious position of naturalized citizens of the same origin. Cancellation of naturalization or the introduction of new laws which obviously paved the way for mass denaturalization shattered what little confidence the refugees might have retained in the possibility of adjusting themselves to a new normal life; if assimilation to the new country once looked a little shabby or disloyal, it was now simply ridiculous. The difference between a naturalized citizen and a statele #Quote by Hannah Arendt
European Countries quotes by Victor Hugo
#48. My revenge is fraternity! No more frontiers! The Rhine for everyone! Let us be the same Republic, let us be the United States of Europe, let us be the continental federation, let us be European liberty, let us be universal peace! #Quote by Victor Hugo
European Countries quotes by Hannah Arendt
#49. The breakdown of the European party system occurred in a spectacular way with Hitler's rise to power. It is now often conveniently forgotten that at the moment of the outbreak of the second World War, the majority of European countries has already adopted some form of dictatorship and discarded the party system, and that this revolutionary change in government has been effected in most countries without revolutionary upheaval. Revolutionary action more often than not was a theatrical concession to the desires of violently discontented masses rather than an actual battle for power. After all, it did not make much difference if a few thousand almost unarmed people staged a march on Rome and took over the government of Italy, or whether in Poland (in 1934) a so-called "partyless bloc," with a program of support for a semifascist government and a membership drawn from the nobility and the poorest peasantry, workers and businessmen, Catholics and orthodox Jews, legally won two-thirds of the seats in Parliament. #Quote by Hannah Arendt
European Countries quotes by Marcus Garvey
#50. Behind the murder of millions of Negroes annually in Africa is the well organized system of exploitation by the alien intruders who desire to rob Africa of every bit of its wealth for the satisfaction of their race and the upkeep of their bankrupt European countries. #Quote by Marcus Garvey
European Countries quotes by Leon Chaitow
#51. Publications by the World Health Organization show that diphtheria is steadily declining in most European countries, including those in which there has been no immunization. The decline began long before vaccination was developed. There is certainly no guarantee that vaccination will protect a child against the disease; in fact, over 30,000 cases of diphtheria have been recorded in the United Kingdom in fully immunized children. #Quote by Leon Chaitow
European Countries quotes by Gunnar Myrdal
#52. Toward the middle and end of the Fifties, West European countries became somewhat more important as providers of aid to underdeveloped countries. It was partly due to the prodding of the United States that these countries, as they regained economic viability, should shoulder their share of the aid burden. #Quote by Gunnar Myrdal
European Countries quotes by Winston Churchill
#53. If Europe were once united in the sharing of its common inheritance there would be no limit to the happiness, the prosperity, and the glory which its 300,000,000 or 400,000,000 people would enjoy. #Quote by Winston Churchill
European Countries quotes by Giovanni Agnelli
#54. And the Marshall Plan, to us, meant a general who had turned into a secretary of state, and that the secretary of state saw the necessity of the reconstruction of these European countries that had suffered so heavily. #Quote by Giovanni Agnelli
European Countries quotes by Khaled Mashal
#55. I say to the [European countries]: Hurry up and apologize to our nation, because if you do not, you will regret it. This is because our nation is progressing and is victorious. Do not leave a black mark in the collective memory of the nation, because our nation will not forgive you. #Quote by Khaled Mashal
European Countries quotes by Christian De Duve
#56. Due to these various circumstances, when I entered the Catholic University of Louvain in 1934, I had already travelled in a number of European countries and spoke four languages fairly fluently. This turned out to be a valuable asset in my subsequent career as a scientist. #Quote by Christian De Duve
European Countries quotes by Andre Gunder Frank
#57. Most economic histories of the "world" not only omit most extra-European production and exchange (even most of that outside West Europe or even northwest Europe); they neglect the participation of the productive and exchange activities of extra-European countries in the European, not to say world, process of accumulation and development. Moreover, they disregard the part that these productive and exchange relations played in the developing world system. #Quote by Andre Gunder Frank
European Countries quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#58. European countries unresistingly submitted to the introduction of general military service
i.e., to a state of slavery involving a degree of humiliation and submission incomparably worse than any slavery of the ancient world. #Quote by Leo Tolstoy
European Countries quotes by Eka Kurniawan
#59. For hundreds of years, more than half of the face of this earth has been controlled by European countries and turned in to colonies, and the Europeans have sucked up whatever they could find, brought it all home, and made themselves rich. But not Germany and Japan; they didn't get anything. But now they have just as much power as any other developed country, and so they are demanding their share. That is the origin of this war, a war between greedy nations. #Quote by Eka Kurniawan
European Countries quotes by Charles De Gaulle
#60. Yes, it is Europe, from the Atlantic to the Urals, it is Europe, it is the whole of Europe, that will decide the fate of the world. #Quote by Charles De Gaulle
European Countries quotes by Pankaj Mishra
#61. Though there are laws against blasphemy and insult to religion in many European countries, France has institutionalised its anti-clerical past by proscribing religion from public life. #Quote by Pankaj Mishra
European Countries quotes by Thomas Sowell
#62. The term "liberal" originally referred politically to those who wanted to liberate people - mainly from the oppressive power of government. That is what it still means in various European countries or in Australia and New Zealand. It is the American meaning that is unusual: People who want to increase the power of government, in order to accomplish various social goals. #Quote by Thomas Sowell
European Countries quotes by Condoleezza Rice
#63. Some governments choose to cooperate with the United States in intelligence, law enforcement, or military matters. The co-operation is a two-way street. We share intelligence that has helped protect European countries from attack, helping save European lives. #Quote by Condoleezza Rice
European Countries quotes by Ramon Magsaysay
#64. Comparatively there is a much more awareness about energy resources in other countries and especially in the US and European countries. Also people there are much more serious about what they do. Here, people are more concerned about getting a 'degree' rather than this. #Quote by Ramon Magsaysay
European Countries quotes by Henry Johnson Jr
#65. People are speaking about discovering the cure for Ebola, HIV, and Cancer but it bugs me that there is no remedy for "Racism". It's a human disease that's hard to eradicate even in 2014 America, South Africa, European countries and some part of Asia still can't get over this disease. Some people raised their little ones to think that way. It's taught from a young age. #Quote by Henry Johnson Jr
European Countries quotes by George Papandreou
#66. If you put all the European countries together, we are the biggest economy in the world. #Quote by George Papandreou
European Countries quotes by Joel Kinnaman
#67. I think that in Sweden and a lot of European countries, there's this whole mythology of the wounded artist: that you can't really do any great art unless you're suffering. #Quote by Joel Kinnaman
European Countries quotes by Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
#68. Some European countries insist on saying that during World War II, Hitler burned millions of Jews and put them in concentration camps. Any historian, commentator or scientist who doubts that is taken to prison or gets condemned. Although we don't accept this claim, if we suppose it is true ... If the Europeans are honest they should give some of their provinces in Europe - like in Germany, Austria or other countries - to the Zionists and the Zionists can establish their state in Europe. You offer part of Europe and we will support it. #Quote by Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
European Countries quotes by Howard Zinn
#69. In his book The African Slave Trade, Basil Davidson contrasts law and in the Congo in the early 16th century with law in Portugal and England. In those European countries, where the idea of private property was becoming powerful, theft was punishable brutally. In England, even as late as 1740, a child could be hanged for stealing a rag of cotton. But in the Congo, communal life persisted. The idea of private property was a strange one, and thefts were punished with fines or various degrees of servitude.

A Congolese leader told of the Portuguese legal codes asked a Portuguese once, teasingly, 'What is the penalty in Portugal for anyone who puts his feet on the ground? #Quote by Howard Zinn
European Countries quotes by Rosa Luxemburg
#70. Europe, it is true, is a geographical and, within certain limits, an historical cultural conception. But the idea of Europe as an economic unit contradicts capitalist development in two ways. First of all there exist within Europe among the capitalist States – and will so long as these exist – the most violent struggles of competition and antagonisms, and secondly the European States can no longer get along economically without the non-European countries. ... At the present stage of development of the world market and of world economy, the conception of Europe as an isolated economic unit is a sterile concoction of the brain. ...
And if the idea of a European union in the economic sense has long been outstripped, this is no less the case in the political sense.
Only were one suddenly to lose sight of all these happenings and manoeuvres, and to transfer oneself back to the blissful times of the European concert of powers, could one say, for instance, that for forty years we have had uninterrupted peace. This conception, which considers only events on the European continent, does not notice that the very reason why we have had no war in Europe for decades is the fact that international antagonisms have grown infinitely beyond the narrow confines of the European continent, and that European problems and interests are now fought out on the world seas and in the by-corners of Europe. #Quote by Rosa Luxemburg
European Countries quotes by Susanna Moodie
#71. The Indian is one of Nature's gentlemen
he never says or does a rude or vulgar thing. The vicious, uneducated barbarians, who form the surplus of overpopulous European countries, are far behind the wild man in delicacy of feeling or natural courtesy. #Quote by Susanna Moodie
European Countries quotes by Simon Kuper
#72. The viewing figures we saw earlier in this book suggest that sport is the most important communal activity in many people's lives. Nearly a third of Americans watch the Super Bowl. However, European soccer is even more popular. In the Netherlands, possibly the European country that follows its national team most eagerly, three-quarters of the population watch Holland's biggest soccer games. In many European countries, World Cups may now be the greatest shared events of any kind. To cap it all, World Cups mostly take place in June, the peak month for suicides in the Northern Hemisphere. How many Exleys have been saved from jumping off apartment buildings by international soccer tournaments, the world's biggest sporting events? #Quote by Simon Kuper
European Countries quotes by Dr. Dimitris Tsoukalas
#73. Table 3/14 Levels of cholesterol in various European countries in relation to the index of mortality caused by heart disease. It is evident that there is no relation between both curves (source: WHO). #Quote by Dr. Dimitris Tsoukalas
European Countries quotes by Jesse Ventura
#74. There's no question that we need tougher drunk-driving laws for repeat offenders. We need to take a lesson from European countries where driving isn't a right but a privilege. #Quote by Jesse Ventura
European Countries quotes by Mark Steyn
#75. The continent has embraced a spiritual death long before the demographic one. In those seventeen European countries that have fallen into the "lowest-low fertility," where are the children? In a way, you're looking at them: the guy sipping espresso at a sidewalk cafe listening to his iPod, the eternal adolescent charges of the paternalistic state. The government makes the grown-up decisions and we spend our pocket money on our record collection...the long-term cost of welfare is the infantilization of the population. The populations of wealthy democratic societies expect to have total choice over their satellite TV package, yet think it perfectly normal to allow the state to make all the choices in respect of their health care. It's a curious inversion of citizenship to demand control over peripheral leisure activities but to contract out the big life-changing stuff to the government. And it's hard to come up with a wake-up call for a society as dedicated as latter-day Europe to the belief that life is about sleeping in. #Quote by Mark Steyn
European Countries quotes by Carl Hagelin
#76. In Sweden, they broadcast the American shows in English with Swedish subtitles, whereas in many European countries they dub them. Watching those shows in English was big for me. #Quote by Carl Hagelin
European Countries quotes by James Surowiecki
#77. Until the nineteen-seventies, Western countries paid little attention to corruption overseas, and bribery was seen as an unpleasant but necessary part of doing business there. In some European countries, businesses were even allowed to deduct bribes as an expense. #Quote by James Surowiecki
European Countries quotes by Clare O'Dea
#78. The perceived failings of leaders of other neutral or occupied European countries, including France, Spain, Sweden or Norway, or of the countries that fought alongside the Nazis, have not caught the public imagination in the English-speaking world in anything like the same way. #Quote by Clare O'Dea
European Countries quotes by Sergei Lavrov
#79. The jihadists come from many European countries, Russia included, and some even from the United States; hundreds of them - if you take Europe, Russia and the U.S. - are fighting in the ranks of extremist groups. #Quote by Sergei Lavrov
European Countries quotes by Edmund Phelps
#80. The difficulties of many European countries derive from their corporatism: state projects serving cronies and vast social protection programmes, both run by elites. These surged in the 1970s and 1980s. #Quote by Edmund Phelps
European Countries quotes by Bobby Jindal
#81. The recent riots in France demonstrate the problem European countries face where second and third generation immigrants still do not consider themselves French, German, or English. #Quote by Bobby Jindal
European Countries quotes by Steve Brouwer
#82. Without a sharp turnaround toward democracy and equality in the United States, Europe will be virtually alone in its commitment to social democracy. The pressures of low-wage immigrant labor, cheap imports from Eastern Europe and Asia, and free-market practices of governments are already threatening once secure areas of employment and causing right-wing populism to pop up in various Western European countries. Surprising numbers of middle-class and working-class voters have supported ultranationalist, neofascist parties throughout Europe because, like white male workers in the United States, they see their status slipping. #Quote by Steve Brouwer
European Countries quotes by Dennis Prager
#83. In various European countries, it is increasingly common for young men to live with their parents into their 30s and even longer. Why not? In the welfare state, there is no shame in doing so. #Quote by Dennis Prager
European Countries quotes by Jared Taylor
#84. People of all races generally prefer the company of people like themselves. Racial diversity is a source of conflict, not strength. Non-whites, especially blacks and Hispanics, nurture a strong sense of racial pride and solidarity. Whites have little sense of racial solidarity, and most whites strongly condemn any signs of it. Immigration from non-European countries is changing the United States in profound ways, many of which whites find disagreeable. To the extent that these statements are true, they have serious implications both for the country as a whole and for whites as a group. #Quote by Jared Taylor
European Countries quotes by Marcus Berkmann
#85. Not only do we mock the Eurovision Song Contest itself, but we lampoon other European countries for taking it so seriously, and they all retaliate by voting for each other every year and ignoring our (sometimes) palpably superior songs. Accordingly, Britain has become the Millwall FC of Eurovision: we are hated, we know we are hated, and we pretend we are happy to be hated. It's actually quite a sad state of affairs. #Quote by Marcus Berkmann
European Countries quotes by David Cameron
#86. In a global race, can we really justify the huge number of expensive peripheral European institutions? Can we justify a commission that gets ever larger? Can we carry on with an organisation that has a multibillion pound budget but not enough focus on controlling spending and shutting down programmes that haven't worked? #Quote by David Cameron
European Countries quotes by Angela Merkel
#87. The 'community method' can only be applied in those areas in which the European Union actually has competence. Where the community has no competence, the 'community method' clearly cannot be applied. #Quote by Angela Merkel
European Countries quotes by William Hague
#88. When we said that no more areas of power should go to the EU we were right. And now thanks to the European Union Act 2011, by law that cannot happen without a referendum. And we are just as right that the EU has more power in our national life than it should, and I believe as strongly as I ever have that when the right moment comes this party should set out to reduce it. #Quote by William Hague
European Countries quotes by Daniel Radcliffe
#89. I'm thrilled of the acceptance I get abroad. The people are so hearty, warm and grateful and I feel privileged having seen so many countries and some of the greatest monuments. #Quote by Daniel Radcliffe
European Countries quotes by Simone De Beauvoir
#90. It's true that what you find in New York is something other than America. Only small towns and small countries are self-satisfied; a real capital goes beyond its borders. #Quote by Simone De Beauvoir
European Countries quotes by Mo Ibrahim
#91. Africa has 53 countries. And you find that three or four countries in these 53 are dominating the news. #Quote by Mo Ibrahim
European Countries quotes by Hugo Chavez
#92. I think the United States and the secretary of State should be concerned about the poverty in this country - people without health insurance. The United States should stop being the empire and be concerned about other countries. You've got to be more worried about your own people. #Quote by Hugo Chavez
European Countries quotes by Liu Cixin
#93. Inequality of survival is the worst sort of inequality, and the people and countries left behind will never just sit and wait for death while others have a way out. There #Quote by Liu Cixin
European Countries quotes by Denis McDonough
#94. Part of what makes America great is that we stand by the countries that share our values around the world. That's why throughout its history, the State of Israel has had no greater friend than the United States of America. #Quote by Denis McDonough
European Countries quotes by Edmund Wilson
#95. The great mistake about Europe is taking the countries seriously and letting them quarrel and drop bombs on one another. #Quote by Edmund Wilson
European Countries quotes by Rob Portman
#96. The reality is that until we can agree on a formula that reduces tariffs globally we cannot meet this Doha promise for development. In order to keep momentum post-Hong Kong, the European Union must be willing to move. #Quote by Rob Portman
European Countries quotes by Sheldon Lee Glashow
#97. I think that I got committed to physics at the age of - oh, it must have been 1942 - ten, when most countries were at war and children were interested in airplanes and bombs and such things. #Quote by Sheldon Lee Glashow
European Countries quotes by Norman Borlaug
#98. Cereal production in the rain-fed areas still remains relatively unaffected by the impact of the green revolution, but significant change and progress are now becoming evident in several countries. #Quote by Norman Borlaug
European Countries quotes by Timothy Garton Ash
#99. Every step that produces a single job for a currently unemployed European should be taken. Every centimetre of red tape that puts someone out of work must be torn up. #Quote by Timothy Garton Ash
European Countries quotes by John Henrik Clarke
#100. After the bombing of Pearl Harbor, December 7, 1941, the United States would enter, in a formal way, what had been up to that date strictly a European conflict. Marcus Garvey's prophecy about the European scramble to maintain dominance over the whole world was now a reality. #Quote by John Henrik Clarke
European Countries quotes by Wilhelm Reich
#101. The German and Russian state apparatuses grew out of despotism. For this reason the subservient nature of the human character of masses of people in Germany and in Russia was exceptionally pronounced. Thus, in both cases, the revolution led to a new despotism with the certainty of irrational logic. In contrast to the German and Russia state apparatuses, the American state apparatus was formed by groups of people who had evaded European and Asian despotism by fleeing to a virgin territory free of immediate and effective traditions. Only in this way can it be understood that, until the time of this writing, a totalitarian state apparatus was not able to develop in America, whereas in Europe every overthrow of the government carried out under the slogan of freedom inevitably led to despotism. This holds true for Robespierre, as well as for Hitler, Mussolini, and Stalin. If we want to appraise the facts impartially, then we have to point out, whether we want to or not, and whether we like it or not, that Europe's dictators, who based their power on vast millions of people, always stemmed from the suppressed classes. I do not hesitate to assert that this fact, as tragic as it is, harbors more material for social research than the facts related to the despotism of a czar or of a Kaiser Wilhelm. By comparison, the latter facts are easily understood. The founders of the American Revolution had to build their democracy from scratch on foreign soil. The men who accomplished this task h #Quote by Wilhelm Reich
European Countries quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#102. Moral restrictions tend to become lax in a foreign country, since the fear of social opinion disappears. #Quote by Mahatma Gandhi
European Countries quotes by Ronald Reagan
#103. My central arms control objective has been to reduce substantially and ultimately to eliminate nuclear weapons and rid the world of the nuclear threat. The prevention of the spread of nuclear explosives is to additional countries is an indispensable part of our efforts to meet this objective. I intend to continue my pursuit of this goal with untiring determination and a profound sense of personal commitment. #Quote by Ronald Reagan
European Countries quotes by Eric C. Anderson
#104. For the first time in history, a private company is organizing a mission to the moon. This mission will inspire countries of the world, citizens, our youth. #Quote by Eric C. Anderson
European Countries quotes by Ally Carter
#105. She draped her arm through mine, and, as we walked, I was sure she probably looked chic and cool and European. I felt slow and clumsy and American. #Quote by Ally Carter
European Countries quotes by Norman Davies
#106. Historians usually focus their attention on the past of countries that still exist, writing hundreds and thousands of books on British history, French history, German history, Russian history, American history, Chinese history, Indian history, Brazilian history or whatever. Whether consciously or not, they are seeking the roots of the present, thereby putting themselves in danger of reading history backwards. As soon as great powers arise, whether the United States in the twentieth century or China in the twenty-first, the call goes out for offerings on American History or Chinese History, and siren voices sing that today's important countries are also those whose past is most deserving of examination, that a more comprehensive spectrum of historical knowledge can be safely ignored. #Quote by Norman Davies
European Countries quotes by Mary Daly
#107. The word 'sin' is derived from the Indo-European root 'es-,' meaning 'to be.' When I discovered this etymology, I intuitively understood that for a [person] trapped in patriarchy, which is the religion of the entire planet, 'to be' in the fullest sense is 'to sin'. #Quote by Mary Daly
European Countries quotes by Paul Theroux
#108. In countries where all the crooked politicians wear pin-striped suits, the best people are bare-assed. #Quote by Paul Theroux
European Countries quotes by Michael Gove
#109. I can't foretell the future, but I don't believe that the act of leaving the European Union would make our economic position worse; I think it would make it better. #Quote by Michael Gove
European Countries quotes by Emmanuelle Chriqui
#110. I love European films in general. If I were to go to the movie store or something, that's what I like to see. #Quote by Emmanuelle Chriqui
European Countries quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan

European Countries quotes by Margaret Thatcher
#112. We have not successfully rolled back the frontiers of the state in Britain, only to see them reimposed at a European level with a European super-state exercising a new dominance from Brussels. #Quote by Margaret Thatcher
European Countries quotes by John Kenneth Galbraith
#113. If we are concerned about our great appetite for materials, it is plausible to decrease waste, to make better use of stocks available, and to develop substitutes. But what about the appetite itself? The major cause of the continued deterioration of the global environment is the unsustainable pattern of consumption and production, particularly in industrialised countries #Quote by John Kenneth Galbraith
European Countries quotes by Amin Maalouf
#114. Can we reconcile indefinitely these two imperatives: the desire to preserve every individual's special identity and the need for Europeans to be able to communicate with one another all the time and as freely as possible? We cannot leave it to time to solve the dilemma and prevent people from engaging, a few years hence, in bitter and fruitless linguistic conflicts. We know all too well what time will do.
The only possible answer is a voluntary policy aimed at strengthening linguistic diversity and based on a simple idea: nowadays everybody obviously needs three languages. The first is his language of identity; the third is English. Between the two we have to promote a third language, freely chosen, which will often but not always be another European language. This will be for everyone the main foreign language taught at school, but it will also be much more than that
the language of the heart, the adopted language, the language you have married, the language you love. #Quote by Amin Maalouf
European Countries quotes by Samuel Taylor Coleridge
#115. Look through the whole history of countries professing the Romish religion, and you will uniformly find the leaven of this besetting and accursed principle of action - that the end will sanction any means. #Quote by Samuel Taylor Coleridge
European Countries quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
#116. Why are you studying Italian? So that - just in case Italy ever invades Ethiopia again, and is actually successful this time - you can brag about knowing a language that's spoken in two whole countries?
But I loved it. Every word was a singing sparrow, a magic trick, a truffle for me. I would slosh home through the rain after class, draw a hot bath, and lie there in the bubbles reading the Italian dictionary aloud to myself, taking my mind off my divorce pressures and my heartache. The words made me laugh in delight. I started referring to my cell phone as il mio telefonino ("my teensy little telephone") I became one of those annoying people who always say Ciao! Only I was extra annoying, since I would always explain where the word ciao comes from. #Quote by Elizabeth Gilbert
European Countries quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#117. Mozart, the last chord of a centuries-old great European taste. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
European Countries quotes by Katharine McPhee
#118. I have family members who live in Africa. Because of the family that lives there, I know what is happening in these countries, and it seems so silly to me that diseases like malaria are so prevalent when they are entirely preventable. Yet children are still dying every 35 seconds. #Quote by Katharine McPhee
European Countries quotes by Orlando Figes
#119. The link between literacy and revolutions is a well-known historical phenomenon. The three great revolutions of modern European history
the English, the French and the Russian
all took place in societies where the rate of literacy was approaching 50 per cent. Literacy had a profound effect on the peasant mind and community. It promotes abstract thought and enables the peasant to master new skills and technologies, Which in turn helps him to accept the concept of progress that fuels change in the modern world. #Quote by Orlando Figes
European Countries quotes by Annalee Newitz
#120. 'Avatar' imaginatively revisits the crime scene of white America's foundational act of genocide, in which entire native tribes and civilizations were wiped out by European immigrants to the American continent. #Quote by Annalee Newitz
European Countries quotes by Adam Smith
#121. The difference between the genius of the British constitution, which protects and governs North America, and that of the mercantile company which oppresses and domineers in the East Indies, cannot, perhaps, be better illustrated than by the different state of those countries. #Quote by Adam Smith
European Countries quotes by Paul A. Baran
#122. Whatever market for manufactured goods emerged in colonial and dependent countries did not become the "eternal market" of these countries. Thrown wide open by colonization and by unequal treaties, it became an appendage of the "internal market" of Western capitalism. #Quote by Paul A. Baran
European Countries quotes by Charles Dickens

European Countries quotes by Isaac Bashevis Singer
#124. Dictatorships, wars, and cruelty drive whole countries to madness. My theory is that the human species was crazy from the very first and that civilization and culture are only enhancing man's insanity.

European Countries quotes by Martin A. Lee
#125. Nietzsche, who called alcohol and Christianity "the two great European narcotics," was not averse to the therapeutic use of cannabis. "To escape from unbearable pressure you need hashish," Nietzsche wrote. #Quote by Martin A. Lee
European Countries quotes by Leigh Bardugo
#126. And you have a magic phone."
"This *phone* can't be sold in some countries because the computer inside it is powerful enough to operate a missile-guidance system, and I can use it to access my desktop through a spoof IP I set up in the dark net."
"Okay, okay," said Jason. "All hail the mighty phone."
"Thank you," said Theo. "The phone accepts cash gifts by way of apology. #Quote by Leigh Bardugo
European Countries quotes by Jonathan Swift
#127. I replied that England (the dear place of my nativity) was computed to produce three times the quantity of food, more than its inhabitants are able to consume, ... But, in order to feed the luxury and intemperance of the males, and the vanity of the females, we sent away the greatest part of our necessary things to other countries, from whence in return we brought the materials of diseases, folly, and vice, to spend among ourselves. Hence it follows of necessity that vast numbers of our people are compelled to seek their livelihood by begging, robbing, stealing, cheating, pimping, forswearing, flattering, suborning, forging, gaming, lying, fawning, hectoring, voting, scribbling, freethinking, #Quote by Jonathan Swift
European Countries quotes by Vladimir Bukovsky
#128. If you go through all the structures and features of this emerging European monster you will notice that it more and more resembles the Soviet Union. #Quote by Vladimir Bukovsky
European Countries quotes by Ursula Torday
#129. I travel whenever I can - every couple of years if it is possible. I always say I'm not to write books on the countries I visit, but somehow I always seem to use material I can found in these countries in my books. #Quote by Ursula Torday
European Countries quotes by Fatema Mernissi
#130. By putting the spotlight on the female child and framing her as the ideal of beauty, he condemns the mature woman to invisibility. In fact, the modern Western man enforces Immanuel Kant's nineteenth-century theories: To be beautiful, women have to appear childish and brainless. When a woman looks mature and self-assertive, or allows her hips to expand, she is condemned ugly. Thus, the walls of the European harem separate youthful beauty from ugly maturity. #Quote by Fatema Mernissi
European Countries quotes by William Goldman
#131. In any case, the two countries had stayed alive over the centuries mainly by warring on each other. There had been the Olive War, the Tuna Fish Discrepancy, which almost bankrupted both nations, the Roman Rift, which did send them both into insolvency, only to be followed by the Discord of the Emeralds, in which they both got rich again, chiefly by banding together for a brief period and robbing everybody within sailing distance. #Quote by William Goldman
European Countries quotes by Michael Hudson
#132. Look at Ukraine. Its currency, the hernia, is plunging. The euro is really in a problem. Greece is problematic as to whether it can pay the IMF, which is threatening not to be part of the troika with the European Central Bank and the European Union making more loans to enable Greece to pay the bondholders and the banks. Britain is having a referendum as to whether to withdraw from the European Union, and it looks more and more like it may do so. So the world's politics are in turmoil. #Quote by Michael Hudson
European Countries quotes by Max Barry
#133. She looked at her note cards and took a breath. Why I Love America, by Hayley McDonald's. America is the greatest group of countries in the world because we have freedom. In countries like France, where the Government isn't privatized, they still have to pay tax and do whatever the Government says, which would really suck. In USA countries, we respect individual rights and let people do whatever they want. #Quote by Max Barry
European Countries quotes by Maria Dahvana Headley
#134. The famous ones kept going, video, photos, headlines, and here they still are, running countries, pressing buttons, standing in offices insisting that all the money in the world belongs to them, pushing secrets through votes, starving the bottom so the top can feast #Quote by Maria Dahvana Headley
