Nations quotes by Shashi Tharoor
#2. The United Nations is the preeminent institution of multilateralism. It provides a forum where sovereign states can come together to share burdens, address common problems, and seize common opportunities. The U.N. helps establish the norms that many countries - including the United States - would like everyone to live by. #Quote by Shashi Tharoor
Nations quotes by Daniel Webster

Nations quotes by J.R.D. Tata
#8. The wealth gathered by Jamsetji Tata and his sons in half a century of industrial pioneering formed but a minute fraction of the amount by which they enriched the nation. The whole of that wealth is held in trust for the people and used exclusively for their benefit. The cycle is thus complete; what came from the people has gone back to the people many times over. #Quote by J.R.D. Tata
Nations quotes by Narendra Modi
#9. This is an election where there is a tea seller from the Opposition, and to defeat him, everyone has come together. They say Modi should not come. This is because those who looted the nation know that after 16th May what is going to happen. #Quote by Narendra Modi
Nations quotes by Napoleon Bonaparte
#10. It is an ambassador's duty to stand up for his nation's foreign policy in any era and under any government whatsoever. Ambassadors are, in the full meaning of the term, titled spies. #Quote by Napoleon Bonaparte
Nations quotes by Norman Davies
#11. All the nations that ever lived have left their footsteps in the sand. The traces fade with every tide, the echoes grow faint, the images are fractured, the human material is atomized and recycled. But if we know where to look, there is always a remnant, a remainder, an irreducible residue. #Quote by Norman Davies
Nations quotes by Gordon B. Hinckley
#12. The nations of the earth through the centuries of time have waged war to gain territory. I think ours is the only nation on the face of the earth which has not claimed territory gained out of conflict.

I have stood in the American Military Cemetery in Suresnes, France, where are buried some who died in the First World War. Among those was my eldest brother. It is a quiet and hallowed place, a remembrance of great sacrifice 'to make the world safe for democracy.' No territory was claimed by America as recompense for the sacrifices of those buried there.

I have stood in reverence in the beautiful American military cemetery on the outskirts of Manila in the Philippines. There marble crosses and the Star of David stand in perfect symmetry marking the burial places of some 17,000 Americans who lost their lives in the Second World War. Surrounding that sacred ground are marble colonnades on which are incised the names of another 35,000 who were lost in the battles of the Pacific during that terrible conflict. After so great a sacrifice there was victory, but there was never a claim for territory except for some small islands over which we have had guardianship.

I have been up and down South Korea from the 38th parallel in the North to Pusan in the South, and I have seen the ridges and the valleys where Americans fought and died, not to save their own land but to preserve freedom for people who were strangers to them but whom they acknowledged to be #Quote by Gordon B. Hinckley
Nations quotes by Hendrith Vanlon Smith  Jr
#13. Both wealth and poverty tend to themselves. #Quote by Hendrith Vanlon Smith Jr
Nations quotes by Dumas Malone
#14. The fact that we became a nation and immediately separated church and state - it has saved us from all the misery that has beset mankind with inquisitions, internecine and civil wars, and other assorted ills. #Quote by Dumas Malone
Nations quotes by Leon Pinsker
#15. This is the kernel of the problem, as we see it: the Jews comprise a distinctive element among the nations under which they dwell, and as such can neither assimilate nor be readily digested by any nation. #Quote by Leon Pinsker
Nations quotes by Saul Alinsky
#16. Organized business has assumed that greater profits would be pretty much of a cure-all, and it has to a major extent ignored the fact that the welfare of business rests upon the welfare of the consumers of a nation; that business or free enterprise will function in a democracy only so long as the democracy functions. #Quote by Saul Alinsky
Nations quotes by William H. Frey
#17. New racial minorities now constitute a fresh and welcome presence in the suburbs and slow-growing rural areas as well as in big cities. They are a much-needed tonic for a labor force that would otherwise be starting to shrink. Furthermore, they will serve as a necessary conduit to other nations in today's increasingly globalized economy. The political clout of racial minorities, both new and old, was demonstrated in the 2008 and 2012 U.S. presidential elections, and diversity within the electorate continues to increase more rapidly than most political strategists could have anticipated only a couple of election cycles ago. #Quote by William H. Frey
Nations quotes by Dwight B. Billings
#18. in its early days the film industry made more than four hundred silent movies exploiting the nation's fascination with Appalachian feuds and moonshine making. #Quote by Dwight B. Billings
Nations quotes by William Cowper
#19. Mountains interposed Make enemies of nations, who had else Like kindred drops been mingled into one. #Quote by William Cowper
Nations quotes by Thomas More
#20. when I compare with them so many other nations that are still making new laws, and yet can never bring their constitution to a right regulation; where, notwithstanding every one has his property, yet all the laws that they can invent have not the power either to obtain or preserve it, or even to enable men certainly to distinguish what is their own from what is another's, of which the many lawsuits that every day break out, and are eternally depending, give too plain a demonstration - when, #Quote by Thomas More
Nations quotes by May Sarton
#21. Family life! The United Nations is child's play compared to the tugs and splits and need to understand and forgive in any family. #Quote by May Sarton
Nations quotes by Carwyn Jones
#22. The U.K. really is made up of four nations that never really became one. #Quote by Carwyn Jones
Nations quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#23. People and nations cannot be happy, if they do not acknowledge the Lordship of Jesus Christ #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Nations quotes by Franklin D. Roosevelt
#24. Research is one of the Nation's very greatest resources and the role of the Federal Government in supporting and stimulating it needs to reexamined. #Quote by Franklin D. Roosevelt
Nations quotes by Pete Sessions
#25. The United States can no longer rely upon foreign nations such as China to bail us out of our economic irresponsibility. We must live within our means and implement creative, free-market solutions to put Americans back in jobs and to create economic opportunities. #Quote by Pete Sessions
Nations quotes by Christopher Dawson
#26. The sublimated idealism of the Enlightenment, the spirit of the League of Nations and of the United Nations Charter have not proved strong enough to control the aggressive dynamism of nationalism. #Quote by Christopher Dawson
Nations quotes by Winston S. Churchill
#27. ... The moral philosophy and spiritual conceptions of men and nations should hold their own amid these formidable scientific evolutions ... No material progress, even though it takes shapes we cannot now conceive, or however it may expand the faculties of man, can bring comfort to his soul. #Quote by Winston S. Churchill
Nations quotes by Thomas Piketty
#28. 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
Nations quotes by James C. Dobson
#29. Nations that are populated largely by immature, immoral, weak-willed, cowardly, and self-indulgent men cannot and will not long endure. These types of men include those who sire and abandon their children; who cheat on their wives; who lie, steal, and covet; who hate their countrymen; and who serve no god but money. That is the direction culture is taking today's boys. #Quote by James C. Dobson
Nations quotes by Walter Mosley
#30. These short stories are vast structures existing mostly in the subconscious of our cultural history. They will live with the reader long after the words have been translated into ideas and dreams. That's because a good short story crosses the borders of our nations and our prejudices and our beliefs. A good short story asks a question that can't be answered in simple terms. And even if we come up with some understanding, years later, while glancing out of a window, the story still has the potential to return, to alter right there in our mind and change everything. #Quote by Walter Mosley
Nations quotes by H. P. Blavatsky
#31. The myths," says Horace in his Ars Poetica, "have been invented by wise men to strengthen the laws and teach moral truths." While Horace endeavored to make clear the very spirit and essence of the ancient myths, Euhemerus pretended, on the contrary, that "myths were the legendary history of kings and heroes, transformed into gods by the admiration of the nations." It is the latter method which was inferentially followed by Christians when they agreed upon the acceptation of euhemerized patriarchs, and mistook them for men who had really lived. #Quote by H. P. Blavatsky
Nations quotes by Alistair Cooke
#32. Texas does not, like any other region, simply have indigenous dishes. It proclaims them. It congratulates you, on your arrival, at having escaped from the slop pails of the other 49 states. #Quote by Alistair Cooke
Nations quotes by Brock Clarke
#33. Some of the men were dressed like Peter and wore red plaid hunting jackets or bulky tan Carhartt jackets or lined flannel shirts, and all of those men were wearing jeans and work boots. Some of the men wore ski jackets and hiking boots and the sort of many-pocketed army green pants that made you want to get out of your seat and rappel. Some of the men wore wide-wale corduroy pants and duck boots and cable0knit sweaters and scarves. It was a regular United Nations of white American manhood. But all the men, no matter what they were wearing, were slouching in their chairs, with their legs so wide open that it seemed as though there must be something severely wrong with their testicles. #Quote by Brock Clarke
Nations quotes by Eden Robinson
#34. The First Nations Financial Transparency Act insulted the integrity of the very people in our communities who guide our economic policy and act as our mediators with provincial and federal governments. #Quote by Eden Robinson
Nations quotes by Ann Richards
#35. Ann Richards on How to Be a Good Republican: 1. You have to believe that the nation's current 8-year prosperity was due to the work of Ronald Reagan and George Bush, but yesterday's gasoline prices are all Clinton's fault. 2. You have to believe that those privileged from birth achieve success all on their own. 3. You have to be against all government programs, but expect Social Security checks on time. #Quote by Ann Richards
Nations quotes by Gerrit Smith
#36. True liberty acknowledges and defends the equal rights of all men, and all nations. #Quote by Gerrit Smith
Nations quotes by Anonymous
#37. And of the shining sword, and of the glittering spear, and of a multitude slain, and of a grievous destruction: and there is no end of carcasses, and they shall fall down on their dead bodies. 4 Because of the multitude of the for nications of the harlot that was beauti ful and agreeable, and that made use of witchcraft, that sold nations through her fornications, and families through her witchcrafts. #Quote by Anonymous
Nations quotes by Sinead O'Connor
#38. My story is the story of countless millions of children whose families and nations were torn apart for money in the name of Jesus Christ. #Quote by Sinead O'Connor
Nations quotes by John Scalzi
#39. But individuals are not precise mirrors of their nations. And #Quote by John Scalzi
Nations quotes by Paul Robeson
#40. If the United States and the United Nations truly want peace and security let them fulfill the hopes of the common people everywhere - let them work together to accomplish on a worldwide scale, precisely the kind of democratic association of free people which characterizes the Soviet Union today. #Quote by Paul Robeson
Nations quotes by Walter Bagehot
#41. In every particular state of the world, those nations which are strongest tend to prevail over the others; and in certain marked peculiarities the strongest tend to be the best. #Quote by Walter Bagehot
Nations quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#42. We believe no more in Bonaparte's fighting merely for the liberties of the seas than in Great Britain's fighting for the liberties of mankind. The object is the same, to draw to themselves the power, the wealth and the resources of other nations. #Quote by Thomas Jefferson
Nations quotes by Tim Dorsey
#43. "[Those] on fixed incomes are the nation's math elite." from pg.88 of Atomic Lobster. #Quote by Tim Dorsey
Nations quotes by Anne Serling
#44. On a deeper level, the film [Seven Days in May] displays several themes that are important to my father throughout his career. Prime among these is not succumbing to fear born of ignorance. In the nuclear age, he seems to be telling us, we can't throw up our hands in helplessness over the enormity of the problem. With the stakes as dire as they are, we must all work positively to change things for the better. I think that is why he believes so firmly in the idea of the United Nations. As in 'Twilight Zone's' "The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street", my dad is warning us that the greatest threat we face is if a potential enemy uses our fears to get us to start destroying ourselves. #Quote by Anne Serling
Nations quotes by William Cowper
#45. When nations are to perish in their sins, 'tis in the Church the leprosy begins. #Quote by William Cowper
Nations quotes by John Wesley
#46. As theories increased, simple medicines..were forgotten, at least in the politer nations ... Medical books, were immensely multiplied, ... (towards) an abstruse science, quite out of reach of ordinary men. #Quote by John Wesley
Nations quotes by Woodrow Wilson
#47. Interest does not tie nations together; it sometimes separates them. But sympathy and understanding does unite them. #Quote by Woodrow Wilson
Nations quotes by Edward Everett
#48. The man who stands upon his own soil, who feels, by the laws of the land in which he lives,-by the laws of civilized nations,-he is the rightful and exclusive owner of the land which he tills, is, by the constitution of our nature, under a wholesome influence, not easily imbibed from any other source. #Quote by Edward Everett
Nations quotes by William J. Brennan
#49. While the machinery of law enforcement and indeed the nature of crime itself have changed dramatically since the Fourth Amendment became part of the Nation's fundamental law in 1791, what the Framers understood then remains true today - that the task of combating crime and convicting the guilty will in every era seem of such critical and pressing concern that we may be lured by the temptations of expediency into forsaking our commitment to protecting individual liberty and privacy. #Quote by William J. Brennan
Nations quotes by Lois McMaster Bujold
#50. Dear Madam Vorsoisson, I am sorry.
This is the eleventh draft of this letter. They've all started with those three words, even the horrible version in rhyme, so I guess they stay.
You once asked me never to lie to you. All right, so. I'll tell you the truth now even if it isn't the best or cleverest thing, and not abject enough either.
I tried to be the thief of you, to ambush and take prisoner what I thought I could never earn or be given. You were not a ship to be hijacked, but I couldn't think of any other plan but subterfuge and surprise. Though not as much of a surprise as what happened at dinner. The revolution started prematurely because the idiot conspirator blew up his secret ammo dump and lit the sky with his intentions. Sometimes these accidents end in new nations, but more often they end badly, in hangings and beheadings. And people running into the night. I can't be sorry that I asked you to marry me, because that was the one true part in all the smoke and rubble, but I'm sick as hell that I asked you so badly.
Even though I'd kept my counsel from you, I should have at least had the courtesy to keep it from others as well, till you'd had the year of grace and rest you'd asked for. But I became terrified that you'd choose another first. So I used the garden as a ploy to get near you. I deliberately and consciously shaped your heart's desire into a trap. For this I am more than sorry, I am ashamed.
You'd earned every chance to grow. I'd lik #Quote by Lois McMaster Bujold
Nations quotes by Hirohito
#51. To strive for the common prosperity and happiness of all nations, as well as the security and wellbeing of our subjects, is the solemn obligation which has been handed down by our imperial ancestors and which lies close to our heart, #Quote by Hirohito
Nations quotes by John Mott
#52. Among the qualities most needed among those who aspire to true leadership in the fostering of peace and goodwill among the nations and in overcoming racial and religious antagonism is the cooperative spirit and objective. #Quote by John Mott
Nations quotes by Drew Hayden Taylor
#53. I've spent too many years explaining who and what I am repeatedly, so as of this moment I officially secede from both races. I plan to start my own separate nation. Because I am half Ojibway and half Caucasian, we will be called the Occasions. And of course, since I'm founding the new nation, I will be a Special Occasion. #Quote by Drew Hayden Taylor
Nations quotes by Harry Belafonte
#54. In the gun game, we are the most hunted. The river of blood that washes the streets of our nation flows mostly from the bodies of our black children, #Quote by Harry Belafonte
Nations quotes by Norman Cousins
#55. If news is not really news unless it is bad news, it may be difficult to claim we are an informed nation #Quote by Norman Cousins
Nations quotes by Robert Anton Wilson
#56. To say that one goes on holiday is to speak the language of the working class, for whom the time off appears merry and playful; but to say one goes on vacation is to speak the language of the ruling class. Vacation comes from the same root as vacant and reflects what the owner sees when he looks around the floor - a vacancy where John 'should' 'be'. (I suspect that the owner probably thinks some negative thoughts about the Labor Unions and the 'damned Liberal' Government that force him to pay John even when John 'is vacant.')

I leave it as a puzzle for the reader: Do the Irish and English speak Working Class in this case because they have had several socialist governments, or have the had several socialist governments because they learned to speak the language of the Working Class? And: has the U.S., alone among industrial nations, never had a socialist government because it speaks the Ruling Class language, or does it speak the Ruling Class language because it has never had a socialist government? #Quote by Robert Anton Wilson
Nations quotes by Muhammad Ali
#57. When I was a kid I got mad enough to want to kill somebody but as you travel the world and I'm struggling with a freedom fight against nations, you can't get enough hate in you to be mad at one man just because it's a boxing match.Never. Even Floyd Paterson, who condemned my Islamic religion and didn't want to call me Muhammad Ali and said I should've gone to the army and I should be in jail. #Quote by Muhammad Ali
Nations quotes by Steve Maraboli
#58. A sense of entitlement is a cancerous thought process that is void of gratitude and can be deadly to our relationships. #Quote by Steve Maraboli
Nations quotes by Roger B. Taney
#59. It is an established principle of jurisprudence in all civilized nations that the sovereign cannot be sued in its own courts, or in any other, without its consent and permission; but it may, if it thinks proper, waive this privilege, and permit itself to be made a defendant in a suit by individuals, or by another State. #Quote by Roger B. Taney
Nations quotes by John Lanchester
#60. In other words, RBS had its origins in a failed speculation, a bail-out, and a financial crash so big it helped destroy Scotland's status as a separate nation. #Quote by John Lanchester
Nations quotes by Reinhold Niebuhr
#61. Nationalism: One of the effective ways in which the modern man escapes life's ethical problems. #Quote by Reinhold Niebuhr
Nations quotes by Wole Soyinka
#62. Under a dictatorship, a nation ceases to exist. All that remains is a fiefdom, a planet of slaves regimented by aliens from outer space. #Quote by Wole Soyinka
Nations quotes by Erma Bombeck
#63. Volunteers are the only human beings on the face of the earth who reflect this nation's compassion, unselfish caring, patience, and just plain love for one another. #Quote by Erma Bombeck
Nations quotes by Sai Baba
#64. A college which does not confer the knowledge of the Spiritual Reality to the students who are engaged in the pursuit of various material studies, is as barren as the sky without the moon, or a heart without peace, or a nation without reference to law. #Quote by Sai Baba
Nations quotes by George W. Bush
#65. Through much of the last century, America's faith in freedom and democracy was a rock in a raging sea. Now it is a seed upon the wind, taking root in many nations. #Quote by George W. Bush
Nations quotes by Theodor Herzl
#66. Nothing prevents us from being and remaining the exponents of a united humanity, when we have a country of our own. To fulfill this mission we do not have to remain literally planted among the nations who hate and despise us. #Quote by Theodor Herzl
Nations quotes by John F. Kennedy
#67. This increase in the life span and in the number of our senior citizens presents this Nation with increased opportunities: the opportunity to draw upon their skill and sagacityand the opportunity to provide the respect and recognition they have earned. It is not enough for a great nation merely to have added new years to lifeour objective must also be to add new life to those years. #Quote by John F. Kennedy
Nations quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#68. For us to expect development in our nations, we must first bring development to the minds and understandings of our people.
The change we quest for outwardly must first be attained inwardly. #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Nations quotes by Dave Barry
#69. All other nations are drinking Ray Charles beer and we are drinking Barry Manilow. #Quote by Dave Barry
Nations quotes by Ricky Gervais
#70. I want to get all the nations of the world together, it doesn't matter what colour or creed, and I want to sit them down and say: "Guys, The Office is still available on DVD." #Quote by Ricky Gervais
Nations quotes by John Rarick
#71. We hold that the ownership of private property is the right and privilege of every American citizen and is one of the foundation stones upon which this nation and its free enterprise system has been built and has prospered. We feel that private property rights and human rights are inseparable and indivisible. Only in those nations that guarantee the right of ownership of private property as basic and sacred under their law is there any recognition of human rights. #Quote by John Rarick
Nations quotes by M.F.K. Fisher
#72. In America we eat, collectively, with a glum urge for food to fill us. We are ignorant of flavour. We are as a nation taste-blind. #Quote by M.F.K. Fisher
Nations quotes by Rachel Maddow
#73. Carter's renowned 1979 "malaise speech" [ ... ] is little remembered for what it actually was: a call to arms for fixing our nation's dire energy future. "Beginning this moment, this nation will never use more foreign oil than we did in 1977
never" [ ... ] Carter was going to use all the weapons at his disposal: import quotas, public investment in coal, solar power, and alternative fuel, and [ ... ] "a bold conservation program" where "every act of energy conservation ... is more than just common sense; I tell you it is an act of patriotism. #Quote by Rachel Maddow
Nations quotes by Jonathan Edwards
#74. There are sufficient and suitable accommodations for all the different sorts of persons that are in the world: for great and small, for high and low, rich and poor, wise and unwise, bond and free, persons of all nations and all conditions and circumstances, for those that have been great sinners as well as for moral livers; for weak saints and those that are babes in Christ as well as for those that are stronger and more grown in grace. #Quote by Jonathan Edwards
Nations quotes by Eric Schlosser
#75. During the same week that Kennedy appealed for an end to the arms race at the United Nations, he met with a handful of military advisers at the White House to discuss launching a surprise attack on the Soviet Union. General Thomas Power encouraged him to do it. According to notes of the meeting, held on September 20, Power warned that the United States now faced the greatest danger, ever, of a Soviet nuclear attack. #Quote by Eric Schlosser
Nations quotes by Alexander Hamilton
#76. In the usual progress of things, the necessities of a nation in every stage of its existence will be found at least equal to its resources. #Quote by Alexander Hamilton
Nations quotes by Theodore Roosevelt
#77. Of all the questions which can come before this nation, short of the actual preservation of its existence in a great war, there is none which compares in importance with the great central task of leaving this land even a better land for our descendants than it is for us. #Quote by Theodore Roosevelt
Nations quotes by Murray Rothbard
#78. The natural tendency of the state is inflation. This statement will shock those accustomed to viewing the state as a committee of the whole nation ardently dispensing the general welfare, but I think it nonetheless true. #Quote by Murray Rothbard
Nations quotes by Jimmy Carter
#79. We simply must have faith in each other, faith in our ability to govern ourselves, and faith in the future of this Nation. Restoring that faith and that confidence to America is now the most important task we face. #Quote by Jimmy Carter
Nations quotes by Henry Kissinger
#80. It is not often that nations learn from the past,even rarer that they draw the correct conclusions from it. #Quote by Henry Kissinger
Nations quotes by James MacGregor Burns
#81. Woodrow Wilson called for leaders who, by boldly interpreting the nation's conscience, could lift a people out of their everyday selves. That people can be lifted into their better selves is the secret of transforming leadership. #Quote by James MacGregor Burns
Nations quotes by Brian Godawa
#82. Welcome to my holy temple. I am Anu, the supreme god, king of kings, and lord of lords. My consort, Inanna, Queen of heaven and earth." He paused ceremoniously with an arrogant grin. "But you already knew that." Then, the mocking stab, "So, where is your god?" Noah would not dignify the remark. Instead, he prophesied, "I know who you are, Semjaza and Azazel, fallen Sons of God. You have laid the nations low, you sit on the mount of assembly, you have made yourselves like the Most High. But you will be brought down to Sheol." Inanna broke in bitterly, "He imagines himself a prophet now, and privy to the Watchers' secrets. #Quote by Brian Godawa
Nations quotes by William Wordsworth
#83. ...The happy Warrior... 'tis, finally, the man, who, lifted high, conspicuous object in a nation's eye, or left unthought-of in obscurity,- who, with a toward or untoward lot, prosperous or adverse, to his wish or not- plays, in the many games of life, that one where what he most doth value must be won: whom neither shape or danger can dismay, nor thought of tender happiness betray; who, not content that former worth stand fast, looks forward, persevering to the last, from well to better, daily self-surpast: who, whether praise of him must walk the earth for ever, and to noble deeds give birth, or he must fall, to sleep without his fame, and leave a dead unprofitable name- finds comfort in himself and in his cause; and, while the mortal mist is gathering, draws his breath in confidence of Heaven's applause: this is the happy Warrior; this is he that every man in arms should wish to be. #Quote by William Wordsworth
Nations quotes by Witness Lee
#84. All warfare has its source in this conflict of wills. Before the satanic will rose up to contradict the divine will, there was no war in the universe. The controversy in the universe began with the rebellion of the archangel against God. That rebellion was the beginning of all the fighting that is now taking place among nations, in society, in the family, and in individuals. #Quote by Witness Lee
Nations quotes by Leonardo Da Vinci
#85. O time, swift robber of all created things, how many kings, how many nations hast thou undone, and how many changes of states and of various events have happened since the wondrous forms of this fish perished here in this cavernous and winding recess. Now destroyed by time thou liest patiently in this confined space with bones stripped and bare; serving as a support and prop for the superimposed mountain. #Quote by Leonardo Da Vinci
Nations quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#86. History has no record of a nation having adopted nonviolent resistance. #Quote by Mahatma Gandhi
Nations quotes by Thomas Frank
#87. As it happens, Chicago is the nation's leader in municipal privatization efforts. That's right: The city that conservatives portray as the citadel of the power-grabbing, government-growing left has been selling itself off in pieces for years. It signed a 99-year lease for the Chicago Skyway, a toll road in the city's South Side, back in 2005. #Quote by Thomas Frank
Nations quotes by Reza Aslan
#88. It is difficult to place Jesus of Nazareth squarely within any of the known religiopolitical movements of his time. He was a man of profound contradictions, one day preaching a message of racial exclusion ("I was sent solely to the lost sheep of Israel"; Matthew 15:24), the next, of benevolent universalism ("Go and make disciples of all nations"; Matthew 28:19); sometimes calling for unconditional peace ("Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called the sons of God"; Matthew 5:9), sometimes promoting violence and conflict ("If you do not have a sword, go sell your cloak and buy one"; Luke 22:36). #Quote by Reza Aslan
Nations quotes by Janne Teller
#89. 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
Nations quotes by John Piper
#90. God has an inexhaustible enthusiasm for the supremacy of His name among the nations. #Quote by John Piper
Nations quotes by Richard Wagamese
#91. There was a feeling in him like waiting for a punishment. #Quote by Richard Wagamese
Nations quotes by Ruben Hinojosa
#92. Today's population of adolescents and young adults is the largest in our nation's history. #Quote by Ruben Hinojosa
Nations quotes by Richard M. Nixon
#93. We are faced this year with the choice between the "work ethic" that built this Nation's character and the new "welfare ethic" that could cause that American character to weaken. #Quote by Richard M. Nixon
Nations quotes by Alexis De Tocqueville
#94. A central administration enervates the nations in which it exists by incessantly diminishing their public spirit. If such an administration succeeds in convincing all the disposable resources of a people, it impairs at least the renewal of those resources. #Quote by Alexis De Tocqueville
Nations quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#95. Bank-paper must be suppressed, and the circulating medium must be restored to the nation to whom it belongs. #Quote by Thomas Jefferson
Nations quotes by John Adams
#96. I will insist the Hebrews have [contributed] more to civilize men than any other nation. If I was an atheist and believed in blind eternal fate, I should still believe that fate had ordained the Jews to be the most essential instrument for civilizing the nations ... They are the most glorious nation that ever inhabited this Earth. The Romans and their empire were but a bubble in comparison to the Jews. They have given religion to three-quarters of the globe and have influenced the affairs of mankind more and more happily than any other nation, ancient or modern. #Quote by John Adams
Nations quotes by Naomi Wolf
#97. Here's what we're not taught [about the Declaration and Constitution]: Those words at the time they were written were blazingly, electrifyingly subversive. If you understand them truly now, they still are. You are not taught - and it is a disgrace that you aren't - that these men and women were radicals for liberty; that they had a vision of equality that was a slap in the face of what the rest of their world understood to be the unchanging, God-given order of nations; and that they were willing to die to make that desperate vision into a reality for people like us, whom they would never live to see. #Quote by Naomi Wolf
Nations quotes by Barack Obama
#98. We are an American family and we rise and fall together as one nation. #Quote by Barack Obama
Nations quotes by Ezra Taft Benson
#99. The Declaration of Independence to which these great men affixed their signatures is much more than a political document. It constitutes a spiritual manifesto-revel ation, if you will-declaring not for this nation only, but for all nations, the source of man's rights. #Quote by Ezra Taft Benson
Nations quotes by Ken Mehlman
#100. We've suffered a war, and one thing we know: Whenever our nation's faced war, whether it was in the 1980s when we were winning the Cold War or in the 1940s during World War II, the responsible thing to do has been to borrow money to win the war. #Quote by Ken Mehlman
Nations quotes by Frank Whittle
#101. A nation's ability to fight a modern war is as good as its technological ability. #Quote by Frank Whittle
Nations quotes by Pope Leo XIII
#102. For what concerns diversity of rites in the sacred liturgy, the Apostolic See has always made its position clear: not only it does not condemn diversity, but it eagerly and willingly grants to each nation the right to keep and preserve the legitimate customs and traditions of its forbears. #Quote by Pope Leo XIII
Nations quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#103. If a vast majority of the population identify and embrace the nation's value system, then that nation is automatically great. Because they will live out these values in their daily life. #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Nations quotes by David Mitchell
#104. What sparks wars? The will to power, the backbone of human nature. The threat of violence, the fear of violence, or actual violence, is the instrument of this dreadful will. You can see the will to power in bedrooms, kitchens, factories, unions and the borders of states. Listen to this and remember it. The nation state is merely human nature inflated to monstrous proportions. QED, nations are entities whose laws are written by violence. Thus it ever was, so ever shall it be. #Quote by David Mitchell
Nations quotes by Ted Cruz
#105. Obamacare is the nation's biggest job killer and stands in the way of our country's economic growth and prosperity. It should be defunded and repealed. President Obama should hear the pleas from the untold number of Americans who are losing their jobs, wages, and healthcare plans, and Congress should act immediately to stop Obamacare from inflicting any more damage on the country on our hard-working citizens. #Quote by Ted Cruz
Nations quotes by John Ruskin
#106. We may live without her, and worship without her, but we cannot remember without her. How cold is all history, how lifeless all imagery, compared to that which the living nation writes, and the uncorrupted marble bears! #Quote by John Ruskin
Nations quotes by Robert Casey
#107. Legal abortion will never rest easy on this nation's conscience. #Quote by Robert Casey
Nations quotes by Franklin D. Roosevelt
#108. In the formative days of the Republic, the directing influence the Bible exercised upon the fathers of the Nation is conspicuously evident ... #Quote by Franklin D. Roosevelt
Nations quotes by Abdelaziz Bouteflika
#109. If the lives of men can be measured in terms of years, ideologies in decades, and nations in centuries, then the unit measuring civilizations, born of the interaction among peoples, would be the millennium. #Quote by Abdelaziz Bouteflika
Nations quotes by P. J. O'Rourke
#110. A nation with a goofy foreign policy needs a very serious policy of defense. #Quote by P. J. O'Rourke
Nations quotes by Edward Abbey
#111. Science transcends mere politics. As recent history demonstrates, scientists are as willing to work for a Tojo, a Hitler, or a Stalin as for the free nations of the West. #Quote by Edward Abbey
Nations quotes by George Washington
#112. Be Americans. Let there be no sectionalism, no North, South, East or West. You are all dependent on one another and should be one in union. In one word, be a nation. Be Americans, and be true to yourselves. #Quote by George Washington
Nations quotes by Dan C. Quayle
#113. The Holocaust was an obscene period in our nation's history. I mean in this century's history. But we all lived in this century. I didn't live in this century. #Quote by Dan C. Quayle
Nations quotes by Norman Borlaug
#114. I now say that the world has the technology - either available or well advanced in the research pipeline - to feed on a sustainable basis a population of 10 billion people. The more pertinent question today is whether farmers and ranchers will be permitted to use this new technology? While the affluent nations can certainly afford to adopt ultra low-risk positions, and pay more for food produced by the so-called "organic" methods, the one billion chronically undernourished people of the low income, food-deficit nations cannot. #Quote by Norman Borlaug
Nations quotes by Gore Vidal
#115. By the end of World War II, we were the most powerful and least damaged of the great nations. We also had most of the money. America's hegemony lasted exactly five years. #Quote by Gore Vidal
Nations quotes by Mira Grant
#116. We are a nation equally afraid of gathering together and being alone. #Quote by Mira Grant
Nations quotes by George Orwell
#117. I am always amazed when I hear people saying that sport creates goodwill between the nations, and that if only the common peoples of the world could meet one another at football or cricket, they would have no inclination to meet on the battlefield. Even if one didn't know from concrete examples (the 1936 Olympic Games, for instance) that international sporting contests lead to orgies of hatred, one could deduce it from general principles ... There cannot be much doubt that the whole thing is bound up with the rise of nationalism - that is, with the lunatic modern habit of identifying oneself with large power units and seeing everything in terms of competitive prestige. #Quote by George Orwell
Nations quotes by Vladimir Lenin
#118. 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
Nations quotes by Albert Einstein
#119. And yet so high, in spite of everything, is my opinion of the human race that I believe this bogey would have disappeared long ago, had the sound sense of the nations not been systematically corrupted by commercial and political interests acting through the schools and the Press. #Quote by Albert Einstein
Nations quotes by Michael Novak
#120. What is the most effective, practical way of raising the wealth of nations? What causes wealth? I have come to think that the dream of democratic socialism is inferior to the dream of democratic capitalism, and that the latter's superiority in actual practice is undeniable. #Quote by Michael Novak
Nations quotes by Lech Walesa
#121. The hope of the nation which throughout the nineteenth century had not for a moment reconciled itself with the loss of independence, and fighting for its own freedom, fought at the same time for the freedom of other nations. #Quote by Lech Walesa
Nations quotes by Barack Obama
#122. Nations are more successful when their women are successful #Quote by Barack Obama
Nations quotes by Mikhail Gorbachev
#123. The emerging 'environmentalization' of our civilization and the need for vigorous action in the interest of the entire global community will inevitably have multiple political consequences. Perhaps the most important of them will be a gradual change in the status of the United Nations. Inevitably, it must assume some aspects of a world government. #Quote by Mikhail Gorbachev
Nations quotes by George Washington
#124. It is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favors. #Quote by George Washington
Nations quotes by Charles E. Wilson
#125. There may be some backward countries where the mass of the people are on a subsistence level and where, as an aftermath of wars or partial crop failures, the standard of living has to be drastically reduced, but this certainly is not the case in our prosperous nations. #Quote by Charles E. Wilson
Nations quotes by Erik Paulsen
#126. As Congress debates overhauling the nation's health care system, it should not authorize a reform plan that would further our financial woes. We must avoid creating an unsustainable government program. There is no question that reform is needed, but health care can be made more affordable without massive and expensive new bureaucracies. #Quote by Erik Paulsen
Nations quotes by Abbas Kiarostami
#127. All the different nations in the world, despite their differences of appearance and religion and language and way of life, still have one thing in common, and that is what's inside of all of us. If we X-rayed the insides of different human beings, we wouldn't be able to tell from those X-rays what the person's language or background or race is. #Quote by Abbas Kiarostami
Nations quotes by Ron Lewis
#128. Today's vote ensures that coal will continue to be an important part of our nation's energy policy, with strong parameters to make it cleaner and more efficient. #Quote by Ron Lewis
Nations quotes by Jim Trelease
#129. Which Country Has the Best Readers? One of the most comprehensive international reading studies was conducted by Warwick Elley for the International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement (IEA) in 1990 and 1991. Involving thirty-two countries, it assessed 210,000 nine- and fourteen-year-olds.22 Of all those children, which ones read best? For nine-year-olds, the four top nations were: Finland (569), the United States (547), Sweden (539), and France (531). But the U.S. position dropped to a tie for eighth when fourteen-year-olds were evaluated. This demonstrates that American children begin reading at a level that is among the best in the world, but since reading is an accrued skill and U.S. children appear to do less of it as they grow older, their scores decline when compared with countries where children read more as they mature. #Quote by Jim Trelease
Nations quotes by Harri Holkeri
#130. Finland had a civil war less than 100 years ago, just like in Ireland. If you look at the history of newly independent nations, civil war is almost every time present, even in the United States. #Quote by Harri Holkeri
Nations quotes by Wendell Berry
#131. I would argue that it is not human fecundity that is overcrowding the world so much as the technological multipliers of the power of individual humans. The worst disease of the world now is probably the ideology of technological heroism, according to which more and more people willingly cause large-scale effects that they do not see and that they cannot control. This is the ideology of the professional class of the industrial nations - a class whose allegiance to communities and places has been dissolved by their economic motives and by their educations. These are people who will go anywhere and jeopardize anything in order to assure the success of their careers. #Quote by Wendell Berry
Nations quotes by Charles Krauthammer
#132. Beyond infrastructure, the conservative sees the proper role of government as providing not European-style universal entitlements but a firm safety net, meaning Julia-like treatment for those who really cannot make it on their own--those too young or too old, too mentally or physically impaired, to provide for themselves.
Limited government so conceived has two indispensable advantages. It avoids inexorable European-style national insolvency. And it avoids breeding debilitating individual dependency. It encourages and celebrates character, independence, energy, hard work as the foundations of a free society and a thriving economy--precisely the virtues Obama discounts and devalues in his accounting of the wealth of nations. #Quote by Charles Krauthammer
Nations quotes by Tanya Ward Jordan
#133. Any Federal official, who engages in employment discrimination, lacks the moral integrity to evenhandedly enforce our Nation's laws or manage Federal programs. #Quote by Tanya Ward Jordan

#135. We need to get serious about combating gang violence on Long Island, and the entire nation. #Quote by Tim Bishop
Nations quotes by Sean Penn
#136. Sacrificing American soldiers or innocent civilians in an unprecedented preemptive attack on a separate sovereign nation may well prove itself a most temporary medicine. #Quote by Sean Penn
Nations quotes by Edmund Burke
#137. Parliament is not a congress of ambassadors from different and hostile interests; which interests each must maintain, as an agent and advocate, against other agents and advocates; but parliament is a deliberative assembly of one nation, with one interest, that of the whole; where, not local purposes, not local prejudices ought to guide, but the general good, resulting from the general reason of the whole. You choose a member indeed; but when you have chosen him, he is not a member of Bristol, but he is a member of parliament. #Quote by Edmund Burke
Nations quotes by T.W. Rolleston
#138. There is perhaps no law written more conspicuously in the teachings of history than that nations who are ruled by priests drawing their authority from supernatural sanctions are, just in the measure that they are so ruled, incapable of true national progress. The free, healthy current of secular life and thought is, in the very nature of things, incompatible with priestly rule. Be the creed what it may, Druidism, Islam, Judaism, Christianity, or fetichism, a priestly caste claiming authority in temporal affairs by virtue of extra-temporal sanctions is inevitably the enemy of that spirit of criticism, of that influx of new ideas, of that growth of secular thought, of human and rational authority, which are the elementary conditions of national development. #Quote by T.W. Rolleston
Nations quotes by Vishal Chipkar
#139. Our planet for Superhumans.

Let us change the name of our planet as Divine Home,
Let us compel the higher consciousness to descend upon our divine home, Let us change the United Nations to United Humans. When the self ignorance, ego and immaturity is removed from mankind, politics and religion will no more exist,
When politics is removed, borders won't be required, When the religion is removed, hatred, misbelief and mass ignorance will not exist, god as dual wont exist.
Let us live on the 29% earth as one Home, the divine home.
Welcome Superhumans". #Quote by Vishal Chipkar
Nations quotes by C.A. Hartman
#140. It was easy to mistrust the government, who some saw as the cause of the wars and other ills. But it was the Financials who had the real power, whose promises of economic growth and the regaining of their nation's former strength got them into elected positions, where they turned the economic tides. #Quote by C.A. Hartman
Nations quotes by Winston S. Churchill
#141. This is a strange Christmas Eve,"Churchill told the the crowd of several hundred gathered at the mansion's garden."Almost the whole world is locked in deadly struggle, and with the most terrible weapons which science can devise the nations advance upon each other. #Quote by Winston S. Churchill
Nations quotes by Adam Smith
#142. We rarely hear, it has been said, of the combinations [that is, unions or colluding organizations] of masters, though frequently of those of workmen. But whoever imagines, upon this account, that masters rarely combine, is as ignorant of the world as of the subject. Masters are always and everywhere in a sort of tacit, but constant and uniform combination, not to raise the wages of labor above their actual price. #Quote by Adam Smith
Nations quotes by Benjamin Rush
#143. 'Tis done. We have become a nation. #Quote by Benjamin Rush
Nations quotes by Fidel Castro
#144. Ignorance is the root of many ills. Knowledge must be the fundamental ally of nations that aspire, despite all their tragedies and problems, to become truly emancipated, to build a better world. #Quote by Fidel Castro
Nations quotes by James Howard Kunstler
#145. Ahead now, I think you'll see the big nations shrink back into their own corners of the world. I'm not saying we'll see no international trade, but it will be nothing like the conveyer belt from China to Wal-Mart that we've known the last few decades. And the prospects for conflict are very, very high. #Quote by James Howard Kunstler
Nations quotes by Czeslaw Milosz
#146. What is poetry which does not save nations or people? #Quote by Czeslaw Milosz
Nations quotes by Ambrose Bierce
#147. GUNPOWDER, n. An agency employed by civilized nations for the settlement of disputes which might become troublesome if left unadjusted. By most writers the invention of gunpowder is ascribed to the Chinese, but not upon very convincing evidence. Milton says it was invented by the devil to dispel angels with, and this opinion seems to derive some support from the scarcity of angels. #Quote by Ambrose Bierce
Nations quotes by Robert Byrd
#148. We, unlike Nazi Germany or Mussolini's Italy, have never stopped being a nation of laws, not of men. But witness how men with motives and a majority can manipulate law to cruel and unjust ends. #Quote by Robert Byrd
Nations quotes by John Ruskin
#149. A nation which lives a pastoral and innocent life never decorates the shepherd's staff or the plough-handle; but races who live by depredation and slaughter nearly always bestow exquisite ornaments on the quiver, the helmet, and the spear. #Quote by John Ruskin
Nations quotes by John Le Carre
#150. Also took for granted that secret services were the only real measure of a nations political health, the only real expression of its subconscious. #Quote by John Le Carre
Nations quotes by Ibrahim Rugova
#151. The privatization law draft was recently released and I believe that very soon we will start applying it, of course taking into consideration the provisions of UNMIK (United Nations Mission in Kosovo). #Quote by Ibrahim Rugova

#153. I have a high regard for Native languages and the pivotal role they have played in our nation's history. #Quote by Rick Renzi
Nations quotes by Herbert Hoover
#154. Unless the U.N. is completely reorganized without the Communist nations in it, we should get out of it. #Quote by Herbert Hoover
Nations quotes by Pat Frank
#155. You react to crisis the right way. You remember what Toynbee says? His theory of challenge and response applies not only to nations, but to individuals. Some nations and some people melt in the heat of crisis and come apart like fat in the pan. Others meet the challenge and harden. I think you're going to harden. #Quote by Pat Frank
Nations quotes by George H. W. Bush
#156. A new breeze is blowing, and a nation refreshed by freedom stands ready to push on. There is new ground to be broken, and new action to be taken. There are times when the future seems thick as a fog; you sit and wait, hoping the mists will lift and reveal the right path. But this is a time when the future seems a door you can walk right through into a room called tomorrow. #Quote by George H. W. Bush
Nations quotes by Harry S. Truman
#157. It will be just as easy for nations to get along in a republic of the world as it is for you to get along in the republic of the United States. Now when Kansas and Colorado have a quarrel over the water in the Arkansas river they don't call out the national guard in each state and go to war over it. They bring suit in the Supreme Court of the United States and abide by the decision. There isn't a reason in the world why we can't do that internationally. #Quote by Harry S. Truman
Nations quotes by Shannon Mayer
#158. The current leader of the free world had pissed off enough other nations that they were gunning for him en masse. #Quote by Shannon Mayer
Nations quotes by Søren Kierkegaard
#159. The gods were bored so they created man. Adam was bored because he was alone, so Eve was created. From that time boredom entered the world and grew in exact proportion to the growth of population. Adam was bored alone, then Adam and Eve in union, then Adam and Eve and Cain and Abel were bored en famille, then the population increased and the peoples were bored en masse. To divert themselves they conceived the idea of building a tower so high it reached the sky. The very idea is as boring as the tower was high, and a terrible proof of how boredom had gotten the upper hand. Then the nations were scattered over the earth, just as people now travel abroad, but they continued to be bored. #Quote by Søren Kierkegaard
Nations quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#160. [A] spirit of justice and friendly accomodation ... is our duty and our interest to cultivate with all nations. #Quote by Thomas Jefferson
Nations quotes by Tony Meloto
#161. Dark clouds outside are no match to the bright smiles of volunteers at the GK relief center. Hope shines brightest in darkness. Miracles of solidarity can help a nation walk on water. #Quote by Tony Meloto
Nations quotes by Giambattista Vico
#162. How, for example, after liberating themselves from servitude to the religion of God, the creator of the world and of Adam, which alone could hold them within duty and, therefore, within society, did the impious life of those first men from whom the gentile nations arose bring them to disperse in a ferine wandering through the great forest of the earth, grown dense through saturation by the waters of the Flood? And how, constrained to seek food and water and, even more, to save themselves from the wild animals in which the great forest must unfortunately have abounded, with men frequently abandoning their women and mothers their children, and with no way of reuniting, did their descendants gradually come to forget the language of Adam and, without language or any thought other than that of satisfying their hunger, thirst and the foment of their lust, deaden all sense of humanity? #Quote by Giambattista Vico
Nations quotes by Wilhelm Reich
#163. As bitter as it may be, the fact remains: It is the irresponsibleness of masses of people that lies at the basis of fascism of all countries, nations, and races, etc. Fascism is the result of man's distortion over thousands of years. It could have developed in any country or nation. It is not a character trait that is confined specifically to the Germans or Italians. It is manifest in every single individual of the world. The Austrian saying "Da kann man halt nix machen" expresses this fact just as the American saying "Let George do it." That this situation was brought about by a social development which goes back thousands of years does not alter the fact itself. It is man himself who is responsible and not "historical developments." It was the shifting of the responsibility from living man to "historical developments" that caused the downfall of the socialist freedom movements. However, the events of the past twenty years demand the responsibility of the working masses of people.

If we take "freedom" to mean first and foremost the responsibility of each individual to shape personal, occupational, and social existence in a rational way, then it can be said that there is no greater fear than the fear of the creation of general freedom. Unless this basic problem is given complete priority and solved, there will never be a freedom capable of lasting more than one or two generations. #Quote by Wilhelm Reich
Nations quotes by Jimmy Carter
#164. A country will have authority and influence because of moral factors, not its military strength; because it can be humble and not blatant and arrogant; because our people want to serve others and not dominate others. And a nation without morality will soon lose its influence around the world. #Quote by Jimmy Carter
Nations quotes by Roland Emmerich
#165. Everybody knows that the industrialized nations are the worst offenders. #Quote by Roland Emmerich
Nations quotes by Julian Huxley
#166. There are thus two tasks for the Mass Media division of Unesco, the one general, the other special. The special one is to enlist the press and the radio and the cinema to the fullest extent in the service of formal and adult education, of science and learning, of art and culture. The general one is to see that these agencies are used both to contribute to mutual comprehension between different nations and cultures, and also to promote the growth of a common outlook shared by all nations and cultures. #Quote by Julian Huxley
Nations quotes by N. T. Wright
#167. When the soldiers dress Jesus up in a purple robe, they do so in order to mock him, but John tells us of it in order to declare that Jesus is indeed the one in purple, the one before whom the nations will bow. Pilate circles around the possibility that Jesus is in some sense "king of the Jews," but without realizing that, according to the Jews' own ancient traditions, their king is to be king of the whole world. John knows that he is telling a story of someone dying the death of a criminal. He is determined that his readers will "hear" the story also as the death of the rightful king. Jesus's kingdom will not come by violence (18:36). It will come through his own death. When he is lifted up from the earth, he will draw all people to himself (12:32). #Quote by N. T. Wright
Nations quotes by Hillary Clinton
#168. I believe I am a work horse. I believe that that is what our country needs. We need a president who will roll up our sleeves collectively as a nation and tackle the problems that we confront. #Quote by Hillary Clinton
Nations quotes by John Holdren
#169. The need for de-development presents our economists with a major challenge. They must design a stable, low-consumption economy in which there is a much more equitable distribution of wealth than in the present one. Redistribution of wealth both within and among nations is absolutely essential if a decent life is to be provided for every human being. #Quote by John Holdren
Nations quotes by Vicente Fox
#170. I mean, we must act with intelligence. We must work on this framework, so that immigration becomes an asset to both nations. Believe me, what - just the Mayor Bloomberg said here in New York, that this city would be stopped, totally stopped if it were not by the immigrants working here. #Quote by Vicente Fox
Nations quotes by George Washington
#171. Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor, and Whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee 78 requested me to recommend to the People of the United States a day of public thanks-giving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God, especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness. #Quote by George Washington
Nations quotes by Walter Cronkite
#172. It seems to many of us that if we are to avoid the eventual catastrophic world conflict we must strengthen the United Nations as a first step toward a world government patterned after our own government with a legislature, executive and judiciary, and police to enforce its international laws and keep the peace ... To do that, of course, we Americans will have to yield up some of our sovereignty. That would be a bitter pill. It would take a lot of courage, a lot of faith in the new order. #Quote by Walter Cronkite
Nations quotes by Marcel Proust
#173. The real propaganda is what - if we are genuinely a living member of a nation - we tell ourselves because we have hope, hope being a symbol of a nation's instinct of self-preservation. To remain blind to the unjustness of the cause of the individual "Germany," to recognise at every moment the justness of the cause of the individual "France," the surest way was not for a German to be without judgement, or for a Frenchman to possess it, it was, both for the one and for the other, to be possessed of patriotism. #Quote by Marcel Proust
Nations quotes by James Randi
#174. We in the USA have been depending on prayers, pleading, and self-abasement to a deity to bring us magical advantages, and have been encouraged to attribute our prosperity and general success among nations, to that sort of action. In my opinion, hard work and dedication to logic and reason ought to be recognized as the reasons for our achievements, not appeals to a mythical friend-in-the-sky. We got where we are in spite of, not because of, those incantations. #Quote by James Randi
Nations quotes by Ronald Reagan
#175. Life involves effort and growth. You won't grow by watching a situation comedy, though you can grow by reading a book. I hope we aren't becoming a nation of watchers, because what made us great is that we've always been a nation of doers. #Quote by Ronald Reagan
Nations quotes by Stanley Kubrick
#176. The great nations have always acted like gangsters, and the small nations like prostitutes. #Quote by Stanley Kubrick
Nations quotes by Christopher Tunnard
#177. There is a need in every generation to study the past, to absorb its spirit, to preserve its messages ... it's a collaboration of ourselves and our ancestors, the result is a deeper understanding for individuals and in consequence, a broader culture for the nation. #Quote by Christopher Tunnard
Nations quotes by Plutarch
#178. It was a pleasure merely to hear the sound of her voice, with which, like an instrument of many strings, she could pass from one language to another; so that there were few of the barbarian nations that she answered by an interpreter. #Quote by Plutarch
Nations quotes by David Cortright
#179. In no circumstance would the United States or any other nation have the right to mount a military invasion to overthrow another government for the ostensible purpose of achieving disarmament. Rather, the United States would respect the Charter of the UN and would strive to achieve disarmament and settle the differences among nations through peaceful diplomatic means. #Quote by David Cortright

Nations quotes by Ronald Reagan
#184. When the Commander-in-Chief of a nation finds it necessary to order employees of the government or agencies of the government to do things that would technically break the law, he has to be able to declare it legal for them to do that. #Quote by Ronald Reagan
Nations quotes by David Rockefeller
#185. I am a passionate traveler, and from the time I was a child, travel formed me as much as my formal education. In order to appreciate cultures of another nation, one needs to go there, know the people and mingle with the culture of that country. One way to do that, if one is lucky enough, is to buy things from those cultures. #Quote by David Rockefeller
Nations quotes by Henry B. Eyring

Nations quotes by Alexis De Tocqueville
#187. When the English adopted the institution of the jury, they were a half-barbaric people; they have since become one of the most enlightened nations of the globe, and their attachment to the jury has seemed to increase with their enlightenment. #Quote by Alexis De Tocqueville
Nations quotes by Sun Myung Moon
#188. In my opinion, if we have not achieved peace, it is because people forget its most fundamental aspect. Before we talk about peace among nations, we must settle our peace with God. #Quote by Sun Myung Moon
Nations quotes by Augustine Of Hippo
#189. Run to and fro everywhere, holy fires, beautiful fires; for you are the light of the world, nor are you put under a bushel. He whom you cleave unto is exalted, and has exalted you. Run to and fro, and be known unto all nations. #Quote by Augustine Of Hippo
Nations quotes by L. Neil Smith
#190. Most of us agree that the United Nations is the vanguard of a foreign invasion and must be driven from our shores. Liberalism Progressivism all forms of left wing collectivism , are equally alien to the Founders ' America and must be extirpated, root and branch, laughter and derision being the most effective weapons. Look at the way they have reduced Hillary Clinton to an insignificant greasy spot on the pages of history, turned Albert Gore into an object of merriment, and are accomplishing the same for Barry and Micky Obama. #Quote by L. Neil Smith
Nations quotes by Milton Steinberg
#191. 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
Nations quotes by James Maxton
#192. Give us our parliament in Scotland. We will start with no traditions. We will start with ideals. We will start with purpose, with courage. We will start with the aim and object that there will be 134 men and women, pledged to 134 Scottish constituencies, to spend their whole brain power, their whole courage and their whole soul in making Scotland into a country in which we can take people from all the nations of the earth and say: this is our land, this is our Scotland, these are our people, these are our men, our works, our women and children: can you beat it? #Quote by James Maxton

#193. The pen has shaken nations. #Quote by Martin Farquhar Tupper
Nations quotes by Trevanian
#194. It's not Americans I find annoying; it's Americanism: a social disease of the postindustrial world that must inevitably infect each of the mercantile nations in turn, and is called 'American' only because your nation is the most advanced case of the malady, much as one speaks of Spanish flu, or Japanese Type-B encephalitis. It's symptoms are a loss of work ethic, a shrinking of inner resources, and a constant need for external stimulation, followed by spiritual decay and moral narcosis. You can recognize the victim by his constant efforts to get in touch with himself, to believe his spiritual feebleness is an interesting psychological warp, to construe his fleeing from responsibility as evidence that he and his life are uniquely open to new experiences. In the later stages, the sufferer is reduced to seeking that most trivial of human activities: fun. #Quote by Trevanian
Nations quotes by John Stuart Mill
#195. There are nations in whom the passion for governing others is so much stronger than the desire of personal independence, that for the mere shadow of the one they are found ready to sacrifice the whole of the other. Each one of their number is willing, like the private soldier in an army, to abdicate his personal freedom of action into the hands of his general, provided the army is triumphant and victorious, and he is able to flatter himself that he is one of a conquering host, though the notion that he has himself any share in the domination exercised over the conquered is an illusion. A government strictly limited in its powers and attributions, required to hold its hands from overmeddling, and to let most things go on without its assuming the part of guardian or director, is not to the taste of such a people. #Quote by John Stuart Mill
Nations quotes by Orison Swett Marden
#196. What is enthusiasm but a passionate belief in what seems to be a high and holy aim, - an unselfish devotion to some noble cause, - a consecration of heart and mind and soul to the attainment of a great object? What is it but an earnest effort to attain the heights of spiritual and intellectual endeavor? What is it but the life, the force, the power, which makes individuals or nations capable of enduring much and waiting long, in the conviction that ultimately the thing they have at heart will be accomplished? #Quote by Orison Swett Marden
Nations quotes by Robin Hayes
#197. North Carolina, particularly the 8th District, has long played a key role in our Nation's military forces. #Quote by Robin Hayes
Nations quotes by Jeane Kirkpatrick
#198. It is a different matter entirely to commit military resources to keep peace in such areas, where often no peace can be kept, or to build nations in our own image before they are ready for our freedoms - or even want them. The military need not do the work of sanctions and diplomacy. As we carry on in this new century, we would do well to remember the importance of balancing the twin goals of our foreign policy: preserving national security and promoting democratic principles. And we must remember that historic conflicts between enemies can be won on moral force, without firing a single bullet or missile; that cultural, market, political, and perhaps religious forces can be far more transformative in areas of the world where chaos and violence reign; and that America can contribute to the building of nations by any and all of these means - while preserving our military and reserving our sovereign right to wage war to maintain true peace. #Quote by Jeane Kirkpatrick
Nations quotes by Barack Obama
#199. The path towards sustainable energy sources will be long and sometimes difficult. But America cannot resist this transition, we must lead it. We cannot cede to other nations the technology that will power new jobs and new industries, we must claim its promise. That's how we will maintain our economic vitality and our national treasure-our forests and waterways, our crop lands and snow-capped peaks. That is how we will preserve our planet, commanded to our care by God. That's what will lend meaning to the creed our fathers once declared. #Quote by Barack Obama
Nations quotes by Raul Grijalva
#200. Bringing the troops home is necessary not just for the future of Iraq, but also for the people of the United States. We must stop the hemorrhaging of tax dollars that could go to meet our Nation's vital domestic needs. #Quote by Raul Grijalva
