Political Development quotes by Jan Egeland
#1. I think now Somalia is turning a corner and we can, with the new political development, build on momentum - really build a peaceful future. #Quote by Jan Egeland
Political Development quotes by Ernest Hemingway
#2. But an army that is made up of good and bad elements cannot win a war. All must be brought to a certain level of political development; all must know why they are fighting, and its importance. All must believe in the fight they are to make and all must accept discipline.
- For Whom the Bell Tolls #Quote by Ernest Hemingway
Political Development quotes by William James
#3. The war for our Union, with all the constitutional issues which it settled, and all the military lessons which it gathered in, has throughout its dilatory length but one meaning in the eyes of history. It freed the country from the social plague which until then had made political development impossible in the United States. More and more, as the years pass, does the meaning stand forth as the sole meaning. #Quote by William James
Political Development quotes by Tony Blair
#4. What we want to see is the development of human rights and greater democracy, not just because it is our system but because we think that's the best way that economic and political development go hand in hand. #Quote by Tony Blair
Political Development quotes by Madeleine Albright
#5. In 1953, the United States played a significant role in orchestrating the overthrow of Iran's popular prime minister, Mohammed Mossadegh. The Eisenhower administration believed its actions were justified for strategic reasons, but the coup was clearly a setback for Iran's political development and it is easy to see now why many Iranians continue to resent this intervention by America in their internal affairs. #Quote by Madeleine Albright
Political Development quotes by Colin Powell
#6. We are rather candid with them about the nature of their political processes and the state of development of their institutions, but they are looking to the West because they know that's where success lies #Quote by Colin Powell
Political Development quotes by Dinesh D'Souza
#7. So what if people disagree about values? People also disagree about facts. . . .

In my view, the great intellectual challenge facing conservatives is to make the case for morality at a time when many in the West have ceased to believe in an external moral order. The decline of belief in such an order is the most important political development of the past two centuries. Indeed, this decline has created the "crisis of the West. #Quote by Dinesh D'Souza
Political Development quotes by Abdallah II Of Jordan
#8. Political development should start at the grassroots. #Quote by Abdallah II Of Jordan
Political Development quotes by Woodrow Wilson
#9. From the dim morning hours of history when the father was king and priest down to this modern time of history's high noon when nations stand forth full grown and self-governed, the law of coherence and continuity in political development has suffered no serious breach. #Quote by Woodrow Wilson
Political Development quotes by Najib Razak
#10. I would argue that Asean has been instrumental in driving both economic growth and political development, and that there can be no clearer example than its relations with Myanmar. #Quote by Najib Razak
Political Development quotes by Hannah Arendt
#11. Rule by decree has conspicuous advantages for the domination of far-flung territories with heterogeneous populations and for a policy of oppression. Its efficiency is superior simply because it ignores all intermediary stages between issuance and application, and because it prevents political reasoning by the people through the withholding of information. It can easily overcome the variety of local customs and need not rely on the necessarily slow process of development of general law. It is most helpful for the establishment of a centralized administration because it overrides automatically all matters of local autonomy. If rule by good laws has sometimes been called the rule of wisdom, rule by appropriate decrees may rightly be called the rule of cleverness. For it is clever to reckon with ulterior motives and aims, and it is wise to understand and create by deduction from generally accepted principles.

Government by bureaucracy has to be distinguished from the mere outgrowth and deformation of civil services which frequently accompanied the decline of the nation-state - as, notably, in France. There the administration has survived all changes in regime since the Revolution, entrenched itself like a parasite in the body politic, developed its own class interests, and become a useless organism whose only purpose appears to be chicanery and prevention of normal economic and political development. There are of course many superficial similarities between the two typ #Quote by Hannah Arendt
Political Development quotes by Condoleezza Rice
#12. Everybody in the world is capable of democratic development. Some people in the world are unlucky enough to get stuck with really bad political leadership and with really bad political institutions. #Quote by Condoleezza Rice
Political Development quotes by Theodore Roosevelt
#13. If this country is really to go forward along the path of social and economic justice, there must be a new party of nationwide and non-sectional principles, a party where the titular national chiefs and the real state leaders shall be in genuine accord, a party in whose counsels the people shall be supreme, a party that shall represent in the nation and the several states alike the same cause, the cause of human rights and of governmental efficiency. At present both the old parties are controlled by professional politicians in the interests of the privileged classes, and apparently each has set up as its ideal of business and political development a government by financial despotism tempered by make-believe political assassination. Democrat and Republican alike, they represent government of the needy many by professional politicians in the interests of the rich few. This is class government, and class government of a peculiarly unwholesome kind. #Quote by Theodore Roosevelt
Political Development quotes by Fritz Sauckel
#14. I was never informed in advance about the start of the war or about foreign political developments. #Quote by Fritz Sauckel
Political Development quotes by George Orwell
#15. In our time, political speech and writing are largely the defense of the indefensible. #Quote by George Orwell
Political Development quotes by Heinz Pagels
#16. The great unexplored frontier is complexity ... I am convinced that the nations and people that master the new science of Complexity will become the economic, cultural, and political superpowers of the next century. #Quote by Heinz Pagels
Political Development quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#17. A person's work allows their character to form and provides a creative outlet for their inner world of imaginative thoughts and creative impulses. A person whom fails to find suitable work that allows their soul room to grow will quickly begin eroding into a withered and desiccated being. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Political Development quotes by Daron Acemoglu
#18. ...poor countries are poor because those who have power make choices that create poverty. They get it wrong not by mistake or ignorance but on purpose. To understand this, you have to go beyond economics and expert advice on the best thing to do and, instead, study how decisions actually get made, who gets to make them, and why those people decide to do what they do. #Quote by Daron Acemoglu
Political Development quotes by Buzz Aldrin
#19. To move forward, what's required is a unified space agenda based on exploration, science, development, commerce, and security. #Quote by Buzz Aldrin
Political Development quotes by Mark Twain
#20. Men think they think upon the great political questions, and they do; but they think with their party, not independently; they read its literature, but not that of the other side #Quote by Mark Twain
Political Development quotes by Gregory Stock
#21. The biggest development in reproductive biology is the birth-control pill. Nobody ever talks about it, but look at the consequences: demographics; aging populations; the sinking population of Europe, Japan; immigration. It's incredible. #Quote by Gregory Stock
Political Development quotes by Theodore Roosevelt
#22. Fellow-feeling ... is the most important factor in producing a healthy political and social life. Neither our national nor our local civic life can be what it should be unless it is marked by the fellow-feeling, the mutual kindness, the mutual respect, the sense of common duties and common interests, which arise when men take the trouble to understand one another, and to associate together for a common object. A very large share of the rancor of political and social strife arises either from sheer misunderstanding by one section, or by one class, of another, or else from the fact that the two sections, or two classes, are so cut off from each other that neither appreciates the other's passions, prejudices, and, indeed, point of view, while they are both entirely ignorant of their community of feeling as regards the essentials of manhood and humanity. #Quote by Theodore Roosevelt
Political Development quotes by Thomas S. Kuhn
#23. In recent years, however, a few historians of science have been finding it more and more difficult to fulfill the functions that the concept of development-by-accumulation assigns to them. As chroniclers of an incremental process, they discover that additional research makes it harder, not easier, to answer questions like: When was oxygen discovered? Who first conceived of energy conservation? Increasingly, a few of them suspect that these are simply the wrong sorts of questions to ask. Perhaps science does not develop by the accumulation of individual discoveries and inventions. Simultaneously, these same historians confront growing difficulties in distinguishing the "scientific" component of past observation and belief from what their predecessors had readily labeled "error" and "superstition." The more carefully they study, say, Aristotelian dynamics, phlogistic chemistry, or caloric thermodynamics, the more certain they feel that those once current views of nature were, as a whole, neither less scientific nor more that product of human idiosyncrasy than those current today. #Quote by Thomas S. Kuhn
Political Development quotes by Auliq Ice
#24. To show our commitment to the future means to dedicate our time, efforts, resources, saving nature and to develop nice thoughts for better thinking. #Quote by Auliq Ice
Political Development quotes by Walid Shoebat
#25. What the West does not understand about Islamism is that Jihad is very systematic. It has stages. If Muslims have the upper hand, then Jihad is waged by force. If Muslims do not have the upper hand, then Jihad is waged through financial and political means. Since Muslims do not have the upper hand in America or Europe, they talk about peace in front of you while supporting Hamas and Hezbollah in the back room. The whole idea of Islam being a peaceful religion emanates from that silent stage of Jihad. #Quote by Walid Shoebat
Political Development quotes by Caterina Scorsone
#26. Now most of 'Alice' isn't really a political social commentary, but I think a big message is here is that the culture we're involved in is fascinated with very quick fixes and instant gratification. #Quote by Caterina Scorsone
Political Development quotes by Nebo D. Lukovich
#27. In the Reintegration System, a problem or unwanted state of mind is viewed as a distinct part of the personality and reintegrated as such into the unity of one's being.
Every seemingly challenging part of our personality was initially part of the highest intention for our being. It is over time that it degraded and became a lower state of delusion. Our aim is to target such parts and work them back into the wholeness of our being. #Quote by Nebo D. Lukovich
Political Development quotes by Ma Jian
#28. The Chinese have made a faustian pact with the government, agreeing to forsake demands for political and intellectual freedom in exchange for more material comfort. They live prosperous lives in which any expression of pain is forbidden. #Quote by Ma Jian
Political Development quotes by Dalai Lama XIV
#29. Many of today's world leaders have great courage: the courage to do harm. The are ill-advised, too clever, or too skillful. I think bad political systems, by which I mean systems that are not founded on a desire for justice, are mainly due to a type of short-sightedness. When politicians see things only in the short term, they inevitably only see the short-term gains. That is how they develop the type of courage that is necessary to harm others. #Quote by Dalai Lama XIV
Political Development quotes by Thomas Hager
#30. Where there were once several competing approaches to medicine, there is now only one that matters to most hospitals, insurers, and the vast majority of the public. One that has been shaped to a great degree by the successful development of potent cures that followed the discovery of sulfa drugs. Aspiring caregivers today are chosen as much (or more) for their scientific abilities, their talent for mastering these manifold technological and pharmaceutical advances as for their interpersonal skills. A century ago most physicians were careful, conservative observers who provided comfort to patients and their families. Today they act: They prescribe, they treat, they cure. They routinely perform what were once considered miracles. The result, in the view of some, has been a shift in the profession from caregiver to technician. The powerful new drugs changed how care was given as well as who gave it. #Quote by Thomas Hager
Political Development quotes by Stanley Baldwin
#31. The real need of the day is ... moral and spiritual rearmament ... God's Living Spirit can transcend conflicting political systems, can reconcile order and freedom, can rekindle true patriotism, can unite all citizens in the service of the nation, and all nations in the service of mankind. #Quote by Stanley Baldwin
Political Development quotes by Nguvi McKensey Kazaronda
#32. Africans are sub-humans #Quote by Nguvi McKensey Kazaronda
Political Development quotes by Rob Liano
#33. An abundance of money, alcohol, or power doesn't change you, it simply reveals who you truly are. #Quote by Rob Liano
Political Development quotes by Elizabeth Hurley
#34. I always found when I was reading an interview with an actor that I wasn't interested in their political opinions - I just wanted to know what they'd had for breakfast. #Quote by Elizabeth Hurley
Political Development quotes by George Orwell
#35. The Animal Farm is a well written book in comprehensive english. George Orwell compares the communist Russian political system trying to make a point that that system was using people that didn't have a critical mind. What Orwell didn't see is that this attitude can be found in all the political systems where is no supervising and rotation of work.We see corruption in every country.Specialy in countries that are ruled by capitalism systems like Britain and America.I can't say that communism system was bad because people had free education and housing and they didn't have to borrow money from the bank. I believe that Orwell has been sarcastic and he was serving his country not the human race. #Quote by George Orwell
Political Development quotes by Ursula K. Le Guin
#36. Reason is a faculty far larger than mere objective force. When either the political or the scientific discourse announces itself as the voice of reason, it is playing God, and should be spanked and stood in the corner. #Quote by Ursula K. Le Guin
Political Development quotes by Etgar Keret
#37. Quanta.

On Yom Kippur Eve, the quanta went to ask Einstein for his forgiveness. "I'm not home," Einstein yelled at them from behind his locked door. On their way back, people swore loudly at them through the windows, and someone even threw a can. The quanta pretended not to care, but deep in their hearts they were really hurt. Nobody understands the quanta, everybody hates them.
"You parasites," people would shout at them as they walked down the road.
"Go serve in the army."
"We wanted to, actually," the quanta would try to explain, "but the army wouldn't take us because we're so tiny." Not that anyone listened. Nobody listens to the quanta when they try to defend themselves, but when they say something that can be interpreted negatively, well, then everyone's all ears. The quanta can make the most innocent statement, like "Look, there's a cat!" and right away they're saying on the news how the quanta were stirring up trouble and they rush off to interview Schrödinger. All in all, the media hated the quanta worse than anybody, because once the quanta had spoken at an IBM press conference about how the very act of viewing had an effect on an event, and all the journalists thought the quanta were lobbying to keep them from covering the Intifada. The quanta could insist as much as they wanted that this wasn't at all what they meant and that they had no political agenda whatsoever, but nobody would believe them anyway. Everyone knew they were friends of #Quote by Etgar Keret
Political Development quotes by Donald Van De Mark
#38. Good, capable individuals unconsciously and consciously guard and nurture themselves and their spirits every day in all sorts of choices, large and small. Just as their lives are never static, they are rarely if ever fractured. Their morals and ethics are never cut off from the whole of their evolving beings. #Quote by Donald Van De Mark
Political Development quotes by Hendrik Hertzberg
#39. The dismaying truth is that birtherism is part of a larger pattern of rejection of reality that has taken hold of intimidating segments of one of the two political parties that alternate in power in our governing institutions. It is akin to the view that global warming is a hoax, or that the budget can be balanced through spending cuts alone, or that contraception causes abortion, or that evolution is just another theory, on a par with the theory that the earth is six thousand years old. #Quote by Hendrik Hertzberg
Political Development quotes by Manfred Gerstenfeld
#40. Media turned against Israel was a gradual process. And it has gotten worse over the years. I think the main development was the 1982 Lebanon War. #Quote by Manfred Gerstenfeld
Political Development quotes by Leonard Peltier
#41. No human being should ever have to fear for his own life because of political or religious beliefs. We are all in this together, my friends, the rich, the poor, the red, white, black, brown and yellow. We share responsibility for Mother Earth and those who live and breathe upon her ..never forget that. #Quote by Leonard Peltier
Political Development quotes by James Patterson
#42. Mike, you ready? he said. The coliseum-like, bowl-shaped CompStat conference room behind him was a pen pusher's paradise, I knew. It was a place where innovative computer-model formats were used to illuminate detailed processes that were compared for effectiveness of indices of performance before implementations of flexible tactics to achieve the development of comprehensive solutions were discussed in a team-building environment. In plain English, it was a bureaucratic version of hell on earth. #Quote by James Patterson
Political Development quotes by Peter F. Drucker
#43. Fifty years later, in the 1920s, the American DuPont Company independently set up a similar unit and called it a Developmental Department. This department gathers innovative ideas from all over the company, studies them, thinks them through, analyses them. Then it proposes to top management which ones should be tackled as major innovative projects. From the beginning, it brings to bear on the innovation all the resources needed: research, development, manufacturing, marketing, finance, and so on. It is in charge until the new product or service has been on the market for a few years. #Quote by Peter F. Drucker
Political Development quotes by James Cameron
#44. That worst evil of long dictatorships: the loss of all political experience. #Quote by James Cameron
Political Development quotes by Kevin Smith
#45. I just love movies, so suddenly, you're political about movies, and that's dark. It's just not fun when something you love becomes calculated. #Quote by Kevin Smith
Political Development quotes by John Di Lemme
#46. Someone Else's words can detour your potential! #Quote by John Di Lemme
Political Development quotes by John Berger
#47. Ever since the Greek tragedies, artists have, from time to time, asked themselves how they might influence ongoing political events. #Quote by John Berger
Political Development quotes by Helen Caldicott
#48. In terms of the biology of the planet, development is a euphemism for destruction. #Quote by Helen Caldicott
Political Development quotes by Robert W. Sullivan IV
#49. The roots of Campanella's "Solar City" (and the District of Columbia) can be found in deeper occult parallels within the literature formulated by hermetical philosophers Giovanni Pico della Mirandola and Marsilio Ficino in Renaissance Florence; both prophetically predicting the restoration of the Egyptian solar religion as the correct political theology of the planet and itself the model for a "New World" civil religion. In another words they believed the Abrahamic solar faiths of Christianity, Judaism, and Islam would ultimately be exposed as substituted forms of Egyptian sun worship with in "New World" - the United States. It would be this "New World" that would midwife civilization from the waning Piscean Age into the "Masonic" Aquarian Age, a new age of the holy spirit. Simon Greenleaf's Druids and Campanella's Solarians are the de-facto "mediating" Joachimite order through which heavenly signs are mediated by a Sun Priest - an executive or President - who frames policy based upon his knowledge of the correspondences between science (i.e. Egyptian natural religion), grades of being, and heavenly correspondences. This polity was replicated from 1797 within the General Grand Chapter of Royal Arch Masons with reference both to Enoch (cf. Webb's 1797 Monitor) and the priest king Melchizedek of which the Grand Master DeWitt Clinton became the symbolic presiding executive. This configuration is important to make because it establishes the position of the District of Columbia #Quote by Robert W. Sullivan IV
Political Development quotes by Dick Thornburgh
#50. The political status legislation which emerged in Congress in 1990 and 1991 did not receive the support needed for enactment into law during my tenure as Attorney General. #Quote by Dick Thornburgh
Political Development quotes by Rajneesh
#51. Searching for money, what are you really searching? You are searching power, you are searching strength. Searching for prestige, political authority, what are you searching? You are searching power, strength - and strength is all the time available just by the corner. You are searching in wrong places. #Quote by Rajneesh
Political Development quotes by Michael Austin
#52. Not everybody believes in the possibility of political persuasion. Many people see political positions as expressions of innate personality traits - hard-wired into us either by our genes or by an irreversible process of socialization. Why should we waste time trying to be persuasive when people never really change their minds? This is a reasonable concern.

The idea that persuasion doesn't work comes from a bad application of good science. A substantial body of research suggests that our political beliefs are shaped by more or less fixed psychological characteristics ... Research like this, however, tells us about the difficulty of conversion, not persuasion. These are not the same things. We too often misrepresent the task of political persuasion by thinking of the most strident partisan we have ever encountered and imagining what it would take to turn that person into an equally strident partisan for the other side. This sort of Paul-on-the-Road-to-Damascus conversion rarely happens in politics. Most people don't change their fundamental values, and if we expect them to, we are going to be very disappointed.

But we usually don't need people to change their fundamental values in order to convince them to adopt a particular position. The fact that people have fundamental values makes it possible to persuade them by appealing to those values. But we have to find values that we really share. #Quote by Michael Austin
Political Development quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#53. Positive attitude toward time management would accelerate our economic development as we have never seen before. #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Political Development quotes by Henry Hazlitt
#54. When any welfare scheme is being proposed, its political sponsors always dwell on what a generous and compassionate government should pay to Paul; they neglect to mention that this additional money must be seized from Peter. #Quote by Henry Hazlitt
Political Development quotes by Frederic Bastiat
#55. Life, faculties, production-in other words, individuality, liberty, property-this is man. And in spite of the cunning of artful political leaders, these three gifts from God precede all human legislation, and are superior to it. #Quote by Frederic Bastiat
Political Development quotes by Ernst Engel
#56. He who attempts to draw any conclusion whatever as to the nation's wealth or poverty from the mere fact of a favorable or unfavorable Balance of Trade, has not grasped the first fundamental principle of Political Economy. #Quote by Ernst Engel
Political Development quotes by G.J. Meyer
#57. It matters also that both Henry and his daughter Elizabeth were not just rulers but consummate performers, masters of political propaganda and political theater. They #Quote by G.J. Meyer
Political Development quotes by Ariel Sharon
#58. My strength never came from political echelons, it came from the family. And from the fields and the lands and the flowers and everything I see there. My strength came from there. #Quote by Ariel Sharon
Political Development quotes by Lina Bo Bardi
#59. Architecture and architectural freedom are above all a social issue that must be seen from inside a political structure, not from outside it, #Quote by Lina Bo Bardi
Political Development quotes by John Patrick Hickey
#60. Those who have learned to behave as winners always end up winners. #Quote by John Patrick Hickey
Political Development quotes by Norman Davies
#61. To make his point, Ivan staged a sensational demonstration. Some time before Christmas he had arrested two Lithuanians employed in the Moscow Kremlin. He charged them with plotting to poison him. The accusations against Jan Lukhomski and Maciej the Pole did not sound very credible; but their guilt or innocence was hardly relevant. They were held in an open cage on the frozen Moskva River for all the world to see; and on the eve of the departure of Ivan's envoy to Lithuania, they were burned alive in their cage.50 As the ice melted under the fierce heat of the fire and the heavy iron cage sank beneath the water, taking its carbonized occupants down in a great hiss of steam, one could have well imagined that something was being said about Lithuania's political future. #Quote by Norman Davies
Political Development quotes by Michael R. Burch
#62. Hell hath no fury like a frustrated fundamentalist whose God condemned him to "hell" for having "impure thoughts." #Quote by Michael R. Burch
Political Development quotes by Rebecca MacKinnon
#63. Thanks to the Internet in general and social media in particular, the Chinese people now have a mechanism to hold authorities accountable for wrongdoing - at least sometimes - without any actual political or legal reforms having taken place. Major political power struggles and scandals are no longer kept within elite circles. #Quote by Rebecca MacKinnon
