#5. If I lived in China or even Russia, or any totalitarian country, Maybe I could understand some of these illegal injunctions ... But somewhere I read of the freedom of assembly. Somewhere I read of the freedom of speech. Somewhere I read of the freedom of the press. Somewhere I read that the greatness of America is the right to protest for right. #Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr.

Greatness Of America quotes by George W. Bush
#8. I've got a reason for running. I talk about a larger goal, which is to call upon the best of America. It's part of the renewal. It's reform and renewal. Part of the renewal is a set of high standards and to remind people that the greatness of America really does depend on neighbors helping neighbors and children finding mentors. I worry. I'm very worried about, you know, the kid who just wonders whether America is meant for him. I really worry about that. #Quote by George W. Bush
Greatness Of America quotes by Judith Warner
#9. For too many women in America are becoming sick with exhaustion and stress as they try to do things that can't be
shouldn't be
done. Too many are eaten up by resentment toward their husbands, who are not subject to the same heartless pressures. Too many are becoming anxious and depressed because they are overwhelmed and disappointed. Too many are letting their lives be poisoned by guilt because their expectations can't be met, and because there is an enormous cognitive dissonance between what they know to be right for themselves and what they're told is right for their children. Too many feel out of control. #Quote by Judith Warner
Greatness Of America quotes by Barack Obama
#10. The most frustrated and most stymied it is the fact that the United States of America is the one advanced nation on earth in which we do not have sufficient common-sense, gun-safety laws. Even in the face of repeated mass killings. #Quote by Barack Obama
Greatness Of America quotes by Ben Hecht
#11. Much more frequent in Hollywood than the emergence of Cinderella is her sudden vanishing. At our party, even in those glowing days, the clock was always striking twelve for someone at the height of greatness; and there was never a prince to fetch her back to the happy scene. #Quote by Ben Hecht
Greatness Of America quotes by W.B.Yeats
#12. The brawling of a sparrow in the eaves,
The brilliant moon and all the milky sky,
And all that famous harmony of leaves,
Had blotted out man's image and his cry.
A girl arose that had red mournful lips
And seemed the greatness of the world in tears,
Doomed like Odysseus and the labouring ships
And proud as Priam murdered with his peers;
Arose, and on the instant clamorous eaves,
A climbing moon upon an empty sky,
And all that lamentation of the leaves,
Could but compose man's image and his cry. #Quote by W.B.Yeats
Greatness Of America quotes by George W. Bush
#13. On September 11 2001, America felt its vulnerability even to threats that gather on the other side of the Earth. We resolved then, and we are resolved today, to confront every threat from any source that could bring sudden terror and suffering to America. #Quote by George W. Bush
Greatness Of America quotes by H.G.Wells
#14. 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
Greatness Of America quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#15. But not to perish from internal distress and doubt when one inflicts great suffering and hears the cry of suffering : that is great, that belongs to greatness. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Greatness Of America quotes by Judy Garland
#16. When you get to know a lot of people, you make a great discovery. You find that no one group has a monopoly on looks, brains, goodness or anything else. It takes all the people - black and white, Catholic, Jewish and Protestant, recent immigrants and Mayflower descendants - to make up America. #Quote by Judy Garland
Greatness Of America quotes by Thomas Piketty
#17. In North America, there is no nostalgia for the postwar period, quite simply because the Trente Glorieuses never existed there: per capita output grew at roughly the same rate of 1.5–2 percent per year throughout the period 1820–2012. To be sure, growth slowed a bit between 1930 and 1950 to just over 1.5 percent, then increased again to just over 2 percent between 1950 and 1970, and then slowed to less than 1.5 percent between 1990 and 2012. In Western Europe, which suffered much more from the two world wars, the variations are considerably greater: per capita output stagnated between 1913 and 1950 (with a growth rate of just over 0.5 percent) and then leapt ahead to more than 4 percent from 1950 to 1970, before falling sharply to just slightly above US levels (a little more than 2 percent) in the period 1970–1990 and to barely 1.5 percent between 1990 and 2012.
Western Europe experienced a golden age of growth between 1950 and 1970, only to see its growth rate diminish to one-half or even one-third of its peak level during the decades that followed.
If we looked only at continental Europe, we would find an average per capita output growth rate of 5 percent between 1950 and 1970 - a level well beyond that achieved in other advanced countries over the past two centuries.
These very different collective experiences of growth in the twentieth century largely explain why public opinion in different countries varies so widely in regard to commercial and #Quote by Thomas Piketty
Greatness Of America quotes by Peggy Noonan
#18. No news conferences? Interviews now only with friendly journalists? You can't be president or vice president and govern in that style, as a sequestered figure. This has been Mr. Bush's style the past few years, and see where it got us. You must address America in its entirety, not as a sliver or a series of slivers but as a full and whole entity, a great nation trying to hold together. When you don't, when you play only to your little piece, you contribute to its fracturing. #Quote by Peggy Noonan
Greatness Of America quotes by Sharlto Copley
#19. In America, people really struggle with my name, so I don't have a nickname as such. I've had Sharlito, Sheldon, Charldo, really interesting variations on the name. Some of them can get it, but many can't. #Quote by Sharlto Copley
Greatness Of America quotes by Henry Ford
#20. Mr Edison gave America just what was needed at that moment in history. They say that when people think of me, they think of my assembly line. Mr. Edison, you built an assembly line which brought together the genius of invention, science and industry. #Quote by Henry Ford
Greatness Of America quotes by Cynthia McKinney
#21. In November 2000, the Republicans stole from America our most precious right of all: the right to free and fair elections ... Now President Bush occupies the White House, but with questionable legitimacy. #Quote by Cynthia McKinney
Greatness Of America quotes by Max Beerbohm
#22. Not for an instant did he flinch from the mere fact of dying to-day…To die 'untimely,' as men called it, was the timeliest of deaths for one who had carved his youth to greatness. What perfection could he, Dorset, achieve beyond what was already his? Future years could but stale, if not actually mar, that perfection. Yes, it was lucky to perish leaving much to the imagination of posterity. Dear posterity was of a sentimental, not a realistic, habit. #Quote by Max Beerbohm
Greatness Of America quotes by Francis Fukuyama
#23. An industrial policy worked in Taiwan only because the state was able to shield its planning technocrats from political pressures so that they could reinforce the market and make decisions according to criteria of efficiency - in other words, worked because Taiwan was not governed democratically. An American industrial policy is much less likely to improve its economic competitiveness, precisely because America is more democratic than Taiwan or the Asian NIEs. The planning process would quickly fall prey to pressures from Congress either to protect inefficient industries or to promote ones
favored by special interests. #Quote by Francis Fukuyama
Greatness Of America quotes by Courtney Maum
#24. They've always made a bigger deal about the side effects of drinking pregnant in America than they have in France. But then, the Americans make a bigger deal of everything. It's a bad sign, this trial. It shows very poor taste. It shows that French people are eager to place the blame elsewhere for their own choices. Between that and the arrival of Starbucks, you'll see. #Quote by Courtney Maum
Greatness Of America quotes by Douglas Wilson
#25. Gelernter says, "If there is to be justice in the world, America must create it."17 When I read things like that, I usually have my jumpin' Jehoshaphat reaction. Did he really say that? Yes, he did, but the reason he is able to get away with it is because of the massive loss of confidence and faith that Christians have in Scripture. How can we be appalled when he says that if we are not willing to counter immediately with, "No, if there is to be justice in the world, and in this nation, Jesus must do it"? The #Quote by Douglas Wilson
Greatness Of America quotes by Dwight L. Moody
#26. When a man is filled with the Word of God you cannot keep him still, If a man has got the Word, he must speak or die. #Quote by Dwight L. Moody
Greatness Of America quotes by Franklin D. Roosevelt
#27. There should be no bitterness or hate where the sole thought is the welfare of the United States of America. No man can occupy the office of President without realizing that he is President of all the people. #Quote by Franklin D. Roosevelt
Greatness Of America quotes by Wilma Rudolph
#28. I would be disappointed if I were remembered as a runner because I feelthat my contribution to the youth of America has far exceeded the woman who was the Olympic champion. #Quote by Wilma Rudolph
Greatness Of America quotes by Nelson Mandela
#29. We don't have to be victims of our past, that we can let go of our bitterness, and that all of us can achieve greatness. #Quote by Nelson Mandela
Greatness Of America quotes by Barry Eisler
#30. War is a part of human nature, and we Japanese are human. But we have never fought, we have certainly never built weapons of mass destruction, to convince the world of the rightness of an idea. It took America and its bastard twin, communism, to do that." He #Quote by Barry Eisler
Greatness Of America quotes by Joe Kapp
#31. They say football is America's greatest game, but it's not. The greatest game in America is called opportunity. Football is merely a great expression of it. #Quote by Joe Kapp
Greatness Of America quotes by John Drinkwater
#32. Great men are rare, poets are rarer, but the great man who is a poet, transfiguring his greatness, is the rarest of all events. #Quote by John Drinkwater
Greatness Of America quotes by Julia Child
#33. The German birds didn't taste as good as their French cousins, nor did the frozen Dutch chickens we bought in the local supermarkets. The American poultry industry had made it possible to grow a fine-looking fryer in record time and sell it at a reasonable price, but no one mentioned that the result usually tasted like the stuffing inside of a teddy bear. #Quote by Julia Child
Greatness Of America quotes by Toni Morrison
#34. Whitepeople believed that whatever the manners, under every dark skin was a jungle. Swift unnavigable waters, swinging screaming baboons, sleeping snakes, red gums ready for their sweet white blood. In a way, he thought, they were right. The more coloredpeople spent their strength trying to convince them how gentle they were, how clever and loving, how human, the more they used themselves up to persuade whites of something Negroes believed could not be questioned, the deeper and more tangled the jungle grew inside. But it wasn't the jungle blacks brought with them to this place from the other (livable) place. It was the jungle whitefolks planted in them. And it grew. It spread. In, through and after life, it spread, until it invaded the whites who had made it. Touched them every one. Changed and altered them. Made them bloody, silly, worse than even they wanted to be, so scared were they of the jungle they had made. The screaming baboon lived under their own white skin; the red gums were their own. #Quote by Toni Morrison
Greatness Of America quotes by Mickey Spillane
#35. Oh yeah, I was one of the first guys writing comic books, I wrote Captain America, with guys like Stan Lee, who became famous later on with Marvel Comics. #Quote by Mickey Spillane
Greatness Of America quotes by David Henry Hwang
#36. As Asian-Americans, the charge that is often lobbed against us is sort of the least original: the idea that somehow we're perpetual foreigners, that we can't be trusted, and that even my father, who was patriotic to the point that it was kind of a joke among his children, would be accused of being disloyal to America. #Quote by David Henry Hwang
Greatness Of America quotes by Richard Preston
#37. The annual flight of the dragonflies goes mostly unnoticed, though it is one of the great migrations of flying creatures that occur across North America. #Quote by Richard Preston
Greatness Of America quotes by Gary John Bishop
#38. When you have set out the goals that you are claiming is yours in life and, more importantly, relentlessly taking the actions to produce, it's only a matter of when. We are wired to win. You are wired to win. Define your game. Embrace the challenge. And strive to understand yourself in deeper and more meaningful ways. True understanding of yourself and your personal constraints allows for ever unfolding degrees of freedom and success. The more aware you become of your hard wiring, the more space and opportunity become available in those areas. Step out there. Trust yourself. Give yourself fully to your vast capacity for victory. Set the the challenge of winning in new and exciting ways. Demand your greatness of yourself and repeat after me: I am wired to win. #Quote by Gary John Bishop
Greatness Of America quotes by Tony Kushner
#39. Night flight to San Francisco; chase the moon across America. God, it's been years since I was on a plane. When we hit 35,000 feet we'll have reached the tropopause, the great belt of calm air, as close as I'll ever get to the ozone. I dreamed we were there. The plane leapt the tropopause, the safe air, and attained the outer rim, the ozone, which was ragged and torn, patches of it threadbare as old cheesecloth, and that was frightening. But I saw something that only I could see because of my astonishing ability to see such things: Souls were rising, from the earth far below, souls of the dead, of people who had perished, from famine, from war, from the plague, and they floated up, like skydivers in reverse, limbs all akimbo, wheeling and spinning. And the souls of these departed joined hands, clasped ankles, and formed a web, a great net of souls, and the souls were three-atom oxygen molecules of the stuff of ozone, and the outer rim absorbed them and was repaired. Nothing's lost forever. In this world, there's a kind of painful progress. Longing for what we've left behind, and dreaming ahead. At least I think that's so. #Quote by Tony Kushner
Greatness Of America quotes by Kiera Cass
#40. I got through breakfast and most of a meeting before thoughts of you consumed me. I told everyone I was sick and am now hiding in my room, writing to you, hoping this will make me feel like your home again.
-Maxon #Quote by Kiera Cass
Greatness Of America quotes by Bridges McCall
#41. The Talmud states, "Do not be daunted by the enormity of the world's grief. Do justly now, love mercy now, walk humbly now. You are not obligated to complete the work, but neither are you free to abandon it. #Quote by Bridges McCall
Greatness Of America quotes by Roberto Bolano
#42. It's strange how things happen, Mauricio Silva, known as the Eye, always tried to escape from violence even at the risk of being considered a coward, but the violence, the real violence, can't be escaped, at least not by us, born in Latin America in the 1950s, those of us who were around twenty years old when Salvador Allende died. #Quote by Roberto Bolano
Greatness Of America quotes by Cornel West
#43. The legacy of [Martin Luther] King is the very thing that must be expanded if America is to be free and democratic in the 21st century. It's just as simple as that. #Quote by Cornel West
Greatness Of America quotes by Kat Cole
#44. When I am around people, my heart and soul radiate with the awareness that I am in the presence of greatness. Maybe greatness unfound, or greatness undeveloped, but the potential or existence of greatness nevertheless. You never know who will go on to do good or even great things or become the next great influencer in the world - so treat everyone like they are that person. #Quote by Kat Cole
Greatness Of America quotes by Howard Schultz
#45. We must restore the emotional relationship that people have to the idea of America, that no matter where you come from, no matter where you live, that you have access to the same opportunities that somebody who is born in privilege. #Quote by Howard Schultz
Greatness Of America quotes by Henry Morton Stanley
#46. The Europeans and Americans residing in the town of Zanzibar are either Government officials, independent merchants, or agents for a few great mercantile houses in Europe and America. #Quote by Henry Morton Stanley
Greatness Of America quotes by Zadie Smith
#47. A lot of women, when they're young, feel they have very good friends, and find later on that friendship is complicated. It's easy to be friends when everyone's 18. #Quote by Zadie Smith
