Political Leaders quotes by Frances O'Grady
#1. There is this sense of David Cameron leading a Government that's badly out of touch with ordinary people's lives. I'd absolutely welcome the opportunity to show all political leaders what life is like for most people. #Quote by Frances O'Grady
Political Leaders quotes by David Cameron
#2. I like democracy. I like to be able to throw out my political leaders when they get things wrong, and we don't get to do that with Brussels. #Quote by David Cameron
Political Leaders quotes by Neil Postman
#3. Thomas Jefferson ... knew what schools were for
to ensure that citizens would know when and how to protect their liberty ... It would not have come easily to the mind of such a man, as it does to political leaders today, that the young should be taught to read exclusively for the purpose of increasing their economic productivity. #Quote by Neil Postman
Political Leaders quotes by Trent Lott
#4. I understand what's going on in people's minds, and I think the political leaders better be asking themselves 'why is it, that Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Bernie Sanders and maybe even others are having the impact that they are having?' #Quote by Trent Lott
Political Leaders quotes by Ron Brackin
#5. Lest we lay too heavy a criticism against any government administration
local, state, or federal
we are reminded that American government is representational. Political leaders reflect the people who elect them (as well as those who fail in this civic responsibility) as a mirror reflects those who gaze into it. #Quote by Ron Brackin
Political Leaders quotes by Nana Mouskouri
#6. I always try to see things with children's eyes. Are they happy? Sad? What do they need? Everywhere I went, I realized that children are society's victims ... We have a duty to speak to political leaders, to influence people to give these children a better future. #Quote by Nana Mouskouri
Political Leaders quotes by Moses Finley
#7. Political leaders, lacking documents that could be kept secret (apart from the occasional exception), lacking media they could control, were of necessity brought into a direct and immediate relationship with their constituents, and therefore under more and direct and immediate control. #Quote by Moses Finley
Political Leaders quotes by Miroslav Volf
#8. There is no more effective way to radicalize American Muslim youth than for political leaders to make public displays of prejudice against all Muslims. Suspicion will undermine their sense of identification with America and alienate some from both the culture and from politics. #Quote by Miroslav Volf
Political Leaders quotes by Ron Fournier
#9. Hollywood has a history of raising expectations beyond Washington's reach, of appealing to the very American desire to mythologize political leaders, particularly the president. #Quote by Ron Fournier
Political Leaders quotes by Jan Egeland
#10. It is only the Somalis themselves - and I don't hide that fact when I meet the political leaders here - they themselves have to stop their old practices of fighting each other every time they have a problem. They have to learn how to do peaceful conflict resolution. #Quote by Jan Egeland
Political Leaders quotes by Everett Ferguson
#11. One of the reactions to Jesus was the confession, first voiced by the leader of the Twelve, Peter, that "You are the Messiah" (Mark 8:29), the eagerly awaited "anointed of the Lord" who would bring deliverance to the Jewish people. It was a confession welcomed by many, doubted by others, and feared by still others in positions of power. Jesus' popularity provoked jealousy and opposition from some Pharisees and a range of sentiments from uneasiness to profound disturbance among the political leaders. #Quote by Everett Ferguson
Political Leaders quotes by Alexei Navalny
#12. Our political leaders often talk about Russia taking an independent path, but they like to live like people in the West. #Quote by Alexei Navalny
Political Leaders quotes by Christopher G. Nuttall
#13. Defending the United States was important and there were few higher honours, yet ... was it worth making such a commitment when one's political leaders were worse than the enemy? #Quote by Christopher G. Nuttall
Political Leaders quotes by Joseph Nye
#14. The national interest is predetermined by geopolitics or the history of a country. Important political leaders never just followed their interests - they were concerned about the interests of their people. #Quote by Joseph Nye
Political Leaders quotes by Howard Gardner
#15. In biology, the most basic assumptions of evolutionary theory elude otherwise able students who insist that the process of evolution is guided by a striving toward perfection. College students who have studied economics offer explanations of market forces that are essentially identical to those preferred by college students who have never taken an economics course. Equally severe biases and stereotypes pervade the humanistic segment of the curriculum, from history to art. Students who can discuss in detail the complex causes of the First World War turn right around and explain equally complex current events in terms of the simplest "good guy-bad guy" scenario. (This habit of mind is not absent from political leaders, who are fond of portraying the most complicated international situations along the lines of a Hollywood script.) Those who have studied the intricacies of modern poetry, learning to esteem T. S. Eliot and Ezra Pound, show little capacity to distinguish masterworks from amateurish drivel once the identity of the author has been hidden from view. #Quote by Howard Gardner
Political Leaders quotes by Marcus Tullius Cicero
#16. Persistence in a single view has never been regarded as a merit in political leaders. #Quote by Marcus Tullius Cicero
Political Leaders quotes by Alexis Carrel
#17. Modern civilization seems to be incapable of producing people endowed with imagination, intelligence, and courage. In practically every country there is a decrease in the intellectual and moral caliber of those who carry the responsibility of public affairs. The financial, industrial, and commercial organizations have reached a gigantic size. They are influenced not only by the conditions of the country where they are established, but also by the state of the neighboring countries and of the entire world. In all nations, economic and social conditions undergo extremely rapid changes. Nearly everywhere the existing form of government is again under discussion. The great democracies find themselves face to face with formidable problems--problems concerning their very existence and demanding an immediate solution. And we realize that, despite the immense hopes which humanity has placed in modern civilization, such a civilization has failed in developing men of sufficient intelligence and audacity to guide it along the dangerous road on which it is stumbling. Human beings have not grown so rapidly as the institutions sprung from their brains. It is chiefly the intellectual and moral deficiencies of the political leaders, and their ignorance, which endanger modern nations. #Quote by Alexis Carrel
Political Leaders quotes by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
#18. It is to law alone that men owe justice and liberty. It is this salutary organ, of the will of all which establishes in civil rights the natural equality between men. It is this celestial voice which dictates to each citizen the precepts of public reason, and teaches him to act according to the rules of his own judgment and not to behave inconsistently with himself. It is with this voice alone that political leaders should speak when. they command. #Quote by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
Political Leaders quotes by Jacques Delors
#19. These days there are not enough of such intermediary groups, between the state and the individual, with the result that political leaders are often unduly guided by opinion polls. #Quote by Jacques Delors
Political Leaders quotes by Hassan Nasrallah
#20. The elite are the men of religion, political leaders, media and press people, and teachers. Everyone can understand the truth and know what is right. These have the responsibility of showing this right and truth to the people. They should not remain silent ... It is the responsibility of people to look for right and truth. As they hear me now, they should not accept everything I say. Even the masses of Hezbollah and the resistance should not do so ... Forget what my faith is and what yours is. Hear what I say and see what I do and hear what others say and see what they do, and then decide. #Quote by Hassan Nasrallah
Political Leaders quotes by Gloria Steinem
#21. Instead, we talked about the reasons to support political leaders who support us, never mind party labels. It was the kind of campaigning only a movement could do. #Quote by Gloria Steinem
Political Leaders quotes by Michael Douglas
#22. I have met with political leaders, legislators, and diplomats, seeking the next steps to press in reducing and eliminating the nuclear threat in this century. I have participated in public coalitions developing programmes for action to combat the global rash of small arms. All are trying and making a difference. #Quote by Michael Douglas
Political Leaders quotes by Bill Ayers
#23. In a wild and diverse democracy each of us should be trying to talk to lots and lots and lots of people outside of our own kind of comfort zone and community, and that injunction goes even further for political leaders. They should talk to everyone, they should listen to everyone, and at the end of the day they should have a mind of their own. #Quote by Bill Ayers
Political Leaders quotes by Sheila Fitzpatrick
#24. This was an age of utopianism. Political leaders had utopian visions, and so did many citizens, especially the younger generation. The spirit is hard to capture in an age of skepticism, since utopianism, like revolution, is so unreasonable. #Quote by Sheila Fitzpatrick
Political Leaders quotes by Arianna Huffington
#25. America is a country ready to be taken, in fact, longing to be taken by political leaders ready to restore democracy and trust to the political process. #Quote by Arianna Huffington
Political Leaders quotes by Ray McGovern
#26. I think the question really is, whether our political leaders have stepped out of bounds. Because all this has been approved by our political leaders, Cheney and Bush in the first instance, and now, sadly, Barack Obama in the second instance. #Quote by Ray McGovern
Political Leaders quotes by Kelsey Grammer
#27. My own take on it is that government will never adequately represent every person in the country. It can't. It's not possible. It's a multicultural, multifaceted society in which we live. The country, I think, thrives because it's willing to embrace many ideas at the same time, but once a decision is made you will be unpopular with many people. The business of our political leaders is to go ahead and make a decision and let the chips fall where they may. That's a very hard thing to do. #Quote by Kelsey Grammer
Political Leaders quotes by Guillermo Jiménez
#28. A complete history of sexual scandal in Washington will probably never be written, because the public does not want to read a 20,000 page book that needs to be updated weekly (note to self: maybe they DO -- idea for next book). From the earliest days of the Republic, when our first Ambassador, Benjamin Franklin, fondled and groped the awestruck wives of his French hosts while on mission to Paris, shortly to be succeeded by the even-more-amorous Thomas Jefferson, who broke an ankle in the Louvre while leaping to an assignation with yet another married Frenchwoman, all the way down to our contemporary satyrs, the priapic Kennedys, Wilbur "Fanne Fox" Mills, "Slobbering Bob" Packwood, Bill "I did not have sexual relations with that woman" Clinton, etc., our political leaders have repeatedly proven to be incredibly horny old goats. #Quote by Guillermo Jiménez
Political Leaders quotes by Dale Murphy
#29. I don't agree with everything that any of our political leaders say or believe - that's going to happen sometimes. #Quote by Dale Murphy
Political Leaders quotes by Rusty Schweickart
#30. I don't want people to spend their nights worrying about getting hit by asteroids. But I do want them to encourage their political leaders to invest in the insurance, which will allow us to prevent it from happening. #Quote by Rusty Schweickart
Political Leaders quotes by Adolf Hitler
#31. For the political leader the religious doctrines and institutions of his people must always remain inviolable; or else has no right to be in politics, but should become a reformer, if he has what it takes! #Quote by Adolf Hitler
Political Leaders quotes by Dinesh D'Souza
#32. Christianity enhanced the notion of political and social accountability by providing a new model: that of servant leadership. In ancient Greece and Rome no one would have dreamed of considering political leaders anyone's servants. The job of the leader was to lead. But Christ invented the notion that the way to lead is by serving the needs of others, especially those who are the most needy. #Quote by Dinesh D'Souza
Political Leaders quotes by Pope Francis
#33. There is a need for financial reform along ethical lines that would produce in its turn an economic reform to benefit everyone. This would nevertheless require a courageous change of attitude on the part of political leaders. #Quote by Pope Francis
Political Leaders quotes by Jason L. Riley
#34. For years, black political leaders in New York City aligned themselves with labor unions to block the construction of a Walmart in a low-income community with persistently high unemployment. According to a Marist poll taken in 2011, 69 percent of blacks in New York would welcome a Walmart in their neighborhood. Yet these black leaders put the interests of Big Labor, which doesn't like the retailer's stance toward unions, ahead of the interests of struggling black people who could use the jobs and low-priced goods. #Quote by Jason L. Riley
Political Leaders quotes by Howard Zinn
#35. We cannot be secure by limiting our liberties, as some of our political leaders are demanding, but only by expanding themWe should take our example not from the military and political leaders shouting 'retaliate' and 'war' but from the doctors and nurses and firemen and policemen who have been saving lives in the midst of mayhem, whose first thoughts are not violence, but healing, and not vengeance, but compassion. #Quote by Howard Zinn
Political Leaders quotes by S.I. Hayakawa
#36. People who think of themselves as tough-minded and realistic, among them influential political leaders and businessmen as well as go-getters and hustlers of smaller caliber, tend to take it for granted that human nature is selfish and that life is a struggle in which only the fittest may survive. According to this philosophy, the basic law by which man must live, in spite of his surface veneer of civilization, is the law of the jungle. The "fittest" are those who can bring to the struggle superior force, superior cunning, and superior ruthlessness. #Quote by S.I. Hayakawa
Political Leaders quotes by Pope Francis
#37. It is now, more than ever, necessary that political leaders be outstanding for honesty, integrity and commitment to the common good. #Quote by Pope Francis
Political Leaders quotes by Mark Skousen
#38. We shall never change our political leaders until we change the people who elect them. #Quote by Mark Skousen
Political Leaders quotes by Stephen Kinzer
#39. In fairness, Latin America's elected civilian leaders have made progress in some areas. They have brought their countries back to international respectability, curbed flagrant human rights violations, and sought to build democratic political institutions. #Quote by Stephen Kinzer
Political Leaders quotes by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
#40. We are told: "We should not protect those who are unable to defend themselves with their own human resources." But against the overwhelming forces of totalitarianism, when all of this power is thrown against a country - no country can defend itself with its own resources. For instance, Japan doesn't have a standing army.

We are told: "We should not protect those who do not have a full democracy." This is the most remarkable argument of all. This is the leitmotif I hear in your newspapers and in the speeches of some of your political leaders. Who in the world, when on the front line of defense against totalitarianism, has ever been able to sustain a full democracy? You, the united democracies of the world, were not able to sustain it. America, England, France, Canada, Australia together did not sustain it. At the first threat of Hitlerism, you stretched out your hands to Stalin. You call that sustaining democracy? Hardly. #Quote by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
Political Leaders quotes by Wendy Davis
#41. Texas Republican political leaders take perverse pride in how deeply they have cut our state's education budget. Thousands of teachers have been pulled from classrooms, schools have closed and valuable programs have been canceled. In many places, districts are forced to choose between prekindergarten programs and English, algebra and art. #Quote by Wendy Davis
Political Leaders quotes by Ron Paul
#42. Public opinion is a powerful tool, if not the ultimate tool, for changing policies of the seemingly omnipotent political leaders. The greatest danger is an apathy that allows for evil to thrive when bad people rule over us and provoke nationalistic and patriotic fervor that intimidates many into compliance. #Quote by Ron Paul
Political Leaders quotes by Ellen Malcolm
#43. I think having Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House is going to send a very wonderful lesson to the American public that women can be strong, they can be tough, they can be effective, and they can lead this country as political leaders. #Quote by Ellen Malcolm
Political Leaders quotes by Martin McGuinness
#44. I think people see me as someone very much associated with political agreement and, probably more than anything else, being able to build a relationship with loyalist leaders Ian Paisley and Peter Robinson. #Quote by Martin McGuinness
Political Leaders quotes by Omar Bongo
#45. It is up to African leaders to show their will and political courage in order to assure that this new pan-African institution becomes an efficient instrument and not a place for endless discussions. #Quote by Omar Bongo
Political Leaders quotes by Richard Louv
#46. The future will belong to the nature-smart-those individuals, families, businesses, and political leaders who develop a deeper understanding of the transformative power of the natural world and who balance the virtual with the real. The more high-tech we become, the more nature we need. #Quote by Richard Louv
Political Leaders quotes by Martin Gardner
#47. Let us hope that Lysenko's success in Russia will serve for many generations to come as another reminder to the world of how quickly and easily a science can be corrupted when ignorant political leaders deem themselves competent to arbitrate scientific disputes. #Quote by Martin Gardner
Political Leaders quotes by Chris Smith
#48. When political leaders fail to denounce anti-Semitic violence and slurs, the void is not only demoralizing to the victims, but silence actually enables the wrongdoing. Silence by elected officials in particular conveys approval - or at least acquiescence - and can contribute to a climate of fear and a sense of vulnerability. #Quote by Chris Smith
Political Leaders quotes by Henry A. Kissinger
#49. What political leaders decide, intelligence services tend to seek to justify. #Quote by Henry A. Kissinger
Political Leaders quotes by Howard Zinn
#50. We need to expose the motives of our political leaders, point out their connections to corporate power, show how huge profits are being made out of death and suffering. #Quote by Howard Zinn
Political Leaders quotes by Mike Pence
#51. The true legacy of 9-11 cannot be found among political leaders of the day, but in the citizen soldiers and public safety personnel who answered that day with courage and selflessness. #Quote by Mike Pence
Political Leaders quotes by Arsalan Iftikhar
#52. This is the way a civilized society begins to devour itself. By allowing our political leaders and law enforcement officials to scapegoat one segment of our population - to turn innocent people into targets of suspicion, into the enemy - we demean all that is good and decent about our nation. #Quote by Arsalan Iftikhar
Political Leaders quotes by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
#53. No, the old proverb does not lie: Look for the brave in prison, and the stupid among the political leaders! #Quote by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
Political Leaders quotes by Martin Jacques
#54. Never underestimate the ability of political leaders to misread history on a monumental scale. The invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan have both served to hasten western decline: they have both failed to achieve their objectives and in the process demonstrated an underlying western impotence. #Quote by Martin Jacques
Political Leaders 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 Leaders quotes by Martin Gardner
#56. I'm not sure why I enjoy debunking. Part of it surely is amusement over the follies of true believers, and [it is] partly because attacking bogus science is a painless way to learn good science. You have to know something about relativity theory, for example, to know where opponents of Einstein go wrong ... Another reason for debunking is that bad science contributes to the steady dumbing down of our nation. Crude beliefs get transmitted to political leaders and the result is considerable damage to society. #Quote by Martin Gardner
Political Leaders quotes by Mikhail Gorbachev
#57. Political leaders still think things can be done through force, but that cannot solve terrorism. Backwardness is the breeding ground of terror, and that is what we have to fight. #Quote by Mikhail Gorbachev
Political Leaders quotes by Scott Walker
#58. Political leaders in Illinois kicked the can down the road, raised taxes, and ignored fiscal realities. Now, they're realizing the consequences of their actions: credit downgrades and negative outlooks. #Quote by Scott Walker
Political Leaders quotes by Eban Goodstein
#59. One hundred years ago, visionary political leaders from the Progressive Era established a system of national forests and parks in our country that are the envy of the world and today are the treasure of an entire nation. Why not a similar, global vision for our generation? #Quote by Eban Goodstein
Political Leaders quotes by Jim Wallis
#60. The failure of political leaders to help uplift the poor will be judged a moral failure. #Quote by Jim Wallis
Political Leaders quotes by Harold G. Moore
#61. These times, indeed all times, demand national political leaders who know not only our history but the history of the world and its nations and peoples. We need leaders of principle, courage, character, wisdom, and discipline; and yet we seem trapped by a system of choosing our presidents that pushes those who possess those traits aside in favor of others who look good on television, are skilled at slandering and demonizing their opponents in a campaign, and are able to raise the hundreds of millions of dollars required to ensure election at any cost. #Quote by Harold G. Moore
Political Leaders quotes by Marian Wright Edelman
#62. People who don't vote have no call on political leaders! #Quote by Marian Wright Edelman
Political Leaders quotes by Grace Napolitano
#63. Our political leaders must be honest and forthcoming with data that will allow citizens to use facts and figures to judge for themselves what state Social Security is in. #Quote by Grace Napolitano
Political Leaders quotes by Richard M. Nixon
#64. I would not like to be a political leader in Russia. They never know when they're being taped. #Quote by Richard M. Nixon
Political Leaders quotes by Ralph Nader
#65. The shortcomings of America's political leaders do not stop at our borders. #Quote by Ralph Nader
Political Leaders quotes by Pope John Paul II
#66. You are priests, not social or political leaders. Let us not be under the illusion that we are serving the Gospel through an exaggerated interest in the wide field of temporal problems. #Quote by Pope John Paul II
Political Leaders quotes by Arthur Koestler
#67. All efforts of persuasion by reasoned argument rely on the implicit assumption that homo sapiens, though occasionally blinded by emotion, is a basically rational animal, aware of the motives of his own actions and beliefs-an assumption which is untenable in the light of both historical and neurological evidence. All such appeals fall on barren ground; they could take root only if the ground were prepared by a spontaneous change in human mentality all over the world-the equivalent of a major biological mutation. Then, and only then, would mankind as a whole, from its political leaders down to the lonely crowd, become receptive to reasoned argument, and willing to resort to those unorthodox measures which would enable it to meet the challenge. #Quote by Arthur Koestler
Political Leaders quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#68. All revered spiritual leaders, political leaders, and diplomats, captains of industry, intellectuals, and winning generals exhibit genuine humility that empowers them to act with integrity and courage under the most distressing circumstances. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Political Leaders quotes by R. Buckminster Fuller
#69. Either man is obsolete or war is. War is the ultimate tool of politics. Political leaders look out only for their own side. Politicians are always realistically maneuvering for the next election. They are obsolete as fundamental problem-solvers. #Quote by R. Buckminster Fuller
Political Leaders quotes by Jose Maria Aznar
#70. Because the task of a political leader is to do what he believes is better for his country. Sometimes the public opinion is in favor; sometimes the public opinion needs a little bit more time to understand things. #Quote by Jose Maria Aznar
Political Leaders quotes by John Mott
#71. Foresight has been a distinguishing characteristic of all truly great political, religious, and social betterment leaders. #Quote by John Mott
Political Leaders quotes by Albert Einstein
#72. Political leaders or governments owe their position partly to force and partly to popular election. They cannot be regarded as representative of best elements, morally or intellectually, in their respective nations. #Quote by Albert Einstein
Political Leaders quotes by James White Fellow Of INSTAAR
#73. We need leaders, we need political leaders and we need business leaders, and my hope for this book is that it helps create that next generation of business leaders that will lead us into the future. #Quote by James White Fellow Of INSTAAR
Political Leaders quotes by Howard Zinn
#74. It is possible, reading standard histories, to forget half the population of the country. The explorers were men, the landholders and merchants men, the political leaders men, the military figures men. The very invisibility of women, the overlooking of women, is a sign of their submerged status. #Quote by Howard Zinn
Political Leaders quotes by Edward Alden
#75. CFR's Renewing America initiative - from which this book arose - has focused on those areas of economic policy that are the most important for reinforcing America's competitive strengths. Education, corporate tax policy, and infrastructure, for example, are issues that historically have been considered largely matters of domestic policy. Yet in a highly competitive global economy, an educated workforce, a competitive tax structure, and an efficient transportation network are all crucial to attracting investment and delivering goods and services that can succeed in global markets. The line between domestic economic policy and foreign economic policy is in many cases now almost invisible. Building a more competitive economy for the future requires that our political leaders - not just in Congress and the White House but also in state and local governments - understand how their policy choices can affect the choices of companies that can now invest almost anywhere in the world. #Quote by Edward Alden
Political Leaders quotes by Abbie Hoffman
#76. You are talking to a leftist. I believe in the redistribution of wealth and power in the world. I believe in universal hospital care for everyone. I believe that we should not have a single homeless person in the richest country in the world. And I believe that we should not have a C.I.A. that goes around overwhelming governments and assassinating political leaders, working for tight oligarchies around the world to protect the tight oligarchy here at home. #Quote by Abbie Hoffman
Political Leaders quotes by P. J. O'Rourke
#77. Gun violence has cost us too many political leaders, and hardly ever the worst ones. #Quote by P. J. O'Rourke
Political Leaders quotes by Nelson Mandela
#78. Suddenly there were no Xhosas or Zulus, no Indians or Africans, no rightists or leftists, no religious or political leaders; we were all nationalists and patriots bound together by a love of our common history our culture, our country, and our people. #Quote by Nelson Mandela
Political Leaders quotes by Jeffrey D. Sachs
#79. When the political and economic situation is as dangerous as it is today, cynicism and loss of time are far more dangerous than they look. History plays cruel tricks on the unserious. American political leaders have been in an unserious mood for years, unwilling to level with the American people. The #Quote by Jeffrey D. Sachs
Political Leaders quotes by Bertrand Russell
#80. Most political leaders acquire their position by causing large numbers of people to believe that these leaders are actuated by altruistic desires #Quote by Bertrand Russell
Political Leaders quotes by Nana Awere Damoah
#81. Collectively, as a people, we have to upgrade our standards and expectations of our political leaders and ourselves, hold them and our own selves accountable for the promises we make, and insist on specifics – projects, deadlines, processes, funds to be committed, and follow-up! Otherwise, we will continue to be dribbled and deceived, and nothing would get done. #Quote by Nana Awere Damoah
Political Leaders quotes by Sukant Ratnakar
#82. Political leaders are a reflection of our society. #Quote by Sukant Ratnakar
Political Leaders quotes by Jimmy Carter
#83. I think all of us could insist on preserving the truth and preserving the peace. We could insist that political candidates tell the truth about controversial issues. And secondly, we should be sure to encourage our political leaders, after they're elected, to preserve the peace. #Quote by Jimmy Carter
Political Leaders quotes by Theodore C. Sorensen
#84. The good news, to relieve all this gloom, is that a democracy is inherently self-correcting. Here, the people are sovereign. Inept political leaders can be replaced. Foolish policies can be changed. Disastrous mistakes can be reversed. #Quote by Theodore C. Sorensen
Political Leaders quotes by Lester R. Brown
#85. Today, more than ever, we need political leaders who can see the big picture, who understand the relationship between the economy and its environmental support systems. #Quote by Lester R. Brown
Political Leaders quotes by Hillary Clinton
#86. Children exist in the world as well as in the family. From the moment they are born, they depend on a host of other 'grown-ups - grandparents, neighbors, teachers, ministers, employers, political leaders, and untold others who touch their lives directly and indirectly. #Quote by Hillary Clinton
Political Leaders quotes by Jack McDevitt
#87. There were serious environmental problems left over from the Industrial Age, and the deterioration of the global climate seemed to coincide with political leaders who grew increasingly ruthless. The worst of these was Marko III, known to his American subjects as The Magnificent. #Quote by Jack McDevitt
Political Leaders quotes by Billy Graham
#88. I'm glad to know that we do have political leaders that believe in God, and that has been true from the days of George Washington. #Quote by Billy Graham
Political Leaders quotes by Tim Soutphommasane
#89. I'm not so sure liberal democracy as we know it has reached its terminus. It's clear though, that many have genuinely lost confidence in the Australian political class. One reason is that we like to place enormous burdens of expectations on modern political leaders. To be sure such expectations aren't always honest. Just as we want better public services but object to paying the higher taxes that would make them possible, we often want leadership but only if there aren't hard choices with real consequences. #Quote by Tim Soutphommasane
Political Leaders quotes by Mark Shields
#90. There is nothing more basic to our democracy than the right to participate in electing our political leaders. #Quote by Mark Shields
Political Leaders quotes by John Robert Lewis
#91. This nation is still a place of cheap political leaders who build their careers on immoral compromises and ally themselves with open forms of political, economic, and social exploitation. #Quote by John Robert Lewis
Political Leaders quotes by Olusegun Obasanjo
#92. North and south must also adopt measures to arrest the growing phenomenon of illegal capital flight and the repatriation of illicit wealth siphoned abroad by corrupt political leaders and their collaborators back to their countries of origin, #Quote by Olusegun Obasanjo
Political Leaders quotes by Graham Greene
#93. That was the difference, he had always known, between his faith and theirs, the political leaders of the people who cared only for things like the state, the republic: this child was more important than a whole continent. #Quote by Graham Greene
Political Leaders quotes by Jeff Hobbs
#94. He saw something more in those eyes. The emotion wasn't nakedly apparent, but Mr. Cawley was a professional at reading the subtleties of people. The elderly and wildly successful credit card magnate believed that certain human frailties could actually help fuel success. Insecurity drove billionaire entrepreneurs. Emotional instability made for superb art. The need for attention built great political leaders. But anger, in his experience, led only to inertia. #Quote by Jeff Hobbs
Political Leaders quotes by Richard Rohr
#95. One wonders how far spiritual and political leaders can genuinely lead us without some degree of mystical seeing and action. #Quote by Richard Rohr
Political Leaders quotes by Suzy Kassem
#96. Capitalism defines a profit-driven empire, not one that is driven to benefit the goodwill of its citizens by placing their needs and security first. Not only that, people have plutocracy confused with democracy. A true democratic society is supposed to serve its people, not big businesses. The welfare of its citizens, not corporate pockets. But when you have corporations buying the seats of our political leaders, who do you think they will serve? #Quote by Suzy Kassem
Political Leaders quotes by Jim Wallis
#97. I think it's a good thing for a president or political leaders to want to put their values or their faith into action. Desmond Tutu did that in South Africa. Martin Luther King Jr. did that here. This is a good thing. #Quote by Jim Wallis
Political Leaders quotes by Naomi Wolf
#98. It is standard practice for corrupt leaders who are seeking a certain political outcome to hype or manipulate a terror threat or a threat of violent domestic subversion. While sometimes the threat is manufactured, frequently the hyped threat is based on a real danger. #Quote by Naomi Wolf
Political Leaders quotes by Jaclyn Friedman
#99. But actual rapists, men who are usually known to (and often loved by) their victims? Men who are sometimes our sports heroes, political leaders, buddies, boyfriends and fathers? Evidence suggests we don't despise them nearly as much as we should. #Quote by Jaclyn Friedman
Political Leaders quotes by Mercedes Lackey
#100. Elspeth had the joyous task of breaking the news to the rest of the Council. There was no such accord among the political leaders of Valdemar as there was among her military leaders.
Lord Gartheser was speechless with outrage and shock; Bard Hyron was dazed. Lady Kester and Lady Cathan, still seething over Orthallen's accusations of complicity with the slavers, were surprised, but not altogether unhappy. Father Aldon had closeted himself in the tiny chapel of the Keep; Lord Gildas was with him. Healer Myrim made no attempt to conceal the fact that Orthallen's treachery had not surprised her. Nor did she conceal that his demise gave her a certain grim satisfaction. But then, she might well be forgiven such uncharitable thoughts; she was one of the four Healers who were tending Talia's wounds.
Once the bare bones had been told to the Councillors as a group, Elspeth went to each of these Councillors in turn, privately. She gave a simple explanation of what had occurred, but would answer no questions. Questions, she told them, must wait until Talia had recovered enough to tell them all more. #Quote by Mercedes Lackey
Political Leaders quotes by Kevin Mattson
#101. From these activists we can learn a crucial lesson: without citizens creating the institutions necessary for facilitating the growth of public deliberation, democracy will be a meaningless term. Without political leaders articulating this idea and acting upon it, public life and citizenship will continue to stagnate. #Quote by Kevin Mattson
Political Leaders quotes by Hillary Rodham Clinton
#102. Anti-government rhetoric appears to offer a vision of greater efficiency, self-reliance, and personal freedom. (For obvious reasons, it also usually enjoys greater financial backing and better organized support.) Unfortunately, this rhetoric ignores what has historically been most valuable about our skepticism toward government - the emphasis it places on personal responsibility from all citizens. Instead, it argues against the excesses of government but not against those of the marketplace, where there is great power to disrupt the lives of workers, families, and communities. It even argues against the basic protections government extends to the well-being of individuals, families, and communities, without offering an alternative way of safeguarding them. In fact, its extreme case against government, often including intense personal attacks on government officials and political leaders, is designed not just to restrain government but to advance narrow religious, political, and economic agendas. #Quote by Hillary Rodham Clinton
Political Leaders quotes by Jimmy Carter
#103. Since 2001, the U.S. government has abandoned its role as a champion of human rights and has perpetrated terrible and illegal abuses in prisons in Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo, sent prisoners secretly to other nations to be tortured, denied the applicability of the Geneva Convention restraints, and severely restricted time-honored civil liberties within our own country. Certain political leaders of other nations, who are inclined to perpetrate human rights abuses to quiet dissenting voices and were previously restrained by positive influence from Washington, now feel free to emulate or exceed the abuses approved by American leaders. #Quote by Jimmy Carter
Political Leaders quotes by Barack Obama
#104. And let me say this as a politician I can promise you this, political leaders will never take risks if the people do not push them to take some risks. You must create the change that you want to see. Ordinary people can accomplish extraordinary things. #Quote by Barack Obama
Political Leaders quotes by Robert Higgs
#105. Of course, political leaders are much more ambitious than gangsters. The latter are content to take your money, whereas the former, besides taking far more of your money, have the effrontery to violate your just rights whenever their convenience dictates ... #Quote by Robert Higgs
Political Leaders quotes by Salva Kiir Mayardit
#106. It is the responsibility of all the Sudanese, especially the political leaders and the media, to strengthen social cohesion through the proper understanding of the dynamics of unity, if they really want our country to remain united. #Quote by Salva Kiir Mayardit
Political Leaders quotes by DeForest Soaries
#107. It's an embarrassment that we don't have a broad enough consensus among political leaders that true reform should take place. I could count the members of Congress on one hand that took these issues seriously. #Quote by DeForest Soaries
Political Leaders quotes by Arianna Huffington
#108. It's time for our business and political leaders to help redefine morality beyond sex, drugs, and rock and roll to include lying, hypocrisy, and callous indifference to those in need. #Quote by Arianna Huffington
Political Leaders quotes by Larry Osborne
#109. Political leaders and presidents were shot at or assassinated about as often as rap artists are today. An unpopular war cost fifty-eight thousand American lives. Those who bravely served our country returned home to be treated with unwarranted scorn. Promiscuous sex and hallucinatory drugs were celebrated as the path to enlightenment. Race riots set major cities aflame. Police were called pigs. And no one over the age of thirty was to be trusted. Worse, some people wore leisure suits - in public - and they were proud of it. #Quote by Larry Osborne
Political Leaders quotes by Paul Ryan
#110. I see myself as more of a policy maker than a political leader. #Quote by Paul Ryan
Political Leaders quotes by John             Lewis
#111. We are involved now in a serious revolution. This nation is still a place of cheap political leaders who build their careers on immoral compromises and ally themselves with open forms of political, economic and social exploitation. What political leader here can stand up and say, "My party is the party of principles? #Quote by John Lewis
Political Leaders quotes by Tony Blair
#112. I think the journey for a politician goes from wanting to please all the people all the time, to a political leader that realises in the end his responsibility is to decide. And when he decides, he divides. #Quote by Tony Blair
Political Leaders quotes by Helmut Schmidt
#113. Political leaders normally act by making convincing speeches. #Quote by Helmut Schmidt
Political Leaders quotes by Elizabeth Warren
#114. I learned something important in my race against Senator Brown: voters want political leaders who are willing to break the partisan gridlock. They want fewer closed-door roadblocks and more public votes on legislation that could improve their lives. #Quote by Elizabeth Warren
Political Leaders quotes by Aldous Huxley
#115. Such is Fascist planning-the planning of those who reject the ideal postulates of Christian civilization and of the older Asiatic civilization which preceded ti and from which it derived-the planning of men whose intentions are avowedly bad. Let us now consider examples of planning by political leaders who accept the ideal postulates, whose intentions are good. The first thing to notice is that none of these men accepts the ideal postulates whole-heartedly. All believe that desirable ends can be achieved by undesirable means. Aiming to reach goals diametrically opposed to those of Fascism, they yet persist in taking the same roads as are taken by the Duces and Fuehrers. They are pacifists, but pacifists who act on the theory that peace can be achieved by means of war; they are reformers and revolutionaries, but reformers who imagine that unfair and arbitrary acts can produce social justice, revolutionaries who persuade themselves that the centralization of power and the enslavement of the masses can result in liberty for all. Revolutionary Russia has the largest army in the world; a secret police, that for ruthless efficiency rivals the German or the Italian; a rigid press censorship; a system of education that, since Stalin "reformed" it, is as authoritarian as Hitler's; an all-embracing system of military training that is applied to women and children as well as men; a dictator as slavishly adored as the man-gods of Rome and Berlin; a bureaucracy, solidly entrenched as the #Quote by Aldous Huxley
Political Leaders quotes by Ivan Krastev
#116. What makes me worry today is the alarming decline in the trust in democratic institutions - political parties, Parliaments, political leaders. Less and less people are going to the polls in most advanced democracies. #Quote by Ivan Krastev
Political Leaders quotes by Joseph Stiglitz
#117. I understand why political leaders in the beginning want to be cheerleaders to generate optimism. But to admit that they didn't understand the depths of the problem afterwards, I found a little bit surprising. #Quote by Joseph Stiglitz
Political Leaders quotes by Michael   Collins
#118. It is not to political leaders our people must look, but to themselves. Leaders are but individuals, and individuals are imperfect, liable to error and weakness. The strength of the nation will be the strength of the spirit of the whole people. #Quote by Michael Collins
Political Leaders quotes by Adolf Hitler
#119. I demand that every Storm Troop Leader, just as every political leader, should be conscious of the fact that his behavior and conduct must be exemplary ... I wish every mother to give her son to The Party without fearing that he may be ruined morally ... Storm Troop Leaders who behave unworthily in public are to be mercilessly removed. #Quote by Adolf Hitler
Political Leaders quotes by Margot Asquith
#120. Convictions no doubt have to be modified or expanded to meet changing conditions but ... to be a reliable political leader sooner or later your anchors must hold fast where other men's drag. #Quote by Margot Asquith
Political Leaders quotes by Lucy Powell
#121. People rightly want our political leaders - on all sides - to concentrate on minimising the damage to jobs, living standards and our savings from the banking crisis. #Quote by Lucy Powell
Political Leaders quotes by Fernando Ballano Gonzalo
#122. They say that democracy cannot be adopted; it has to be adapted to the African way of thinking. What does that mean? That the all-powerful and corrupt political leaders should stay in power? That Teodoro Obiang, the President of Equatorial Guinea, should appropriate all the country's money for himself, a country with income per capita of more than 20,000 euros thanks to oil but where people suffer hunger and poverty? Or that women should not have any rights? #Quote by Fernando Ballano Gonzalo
Political Leaders quotes by Warren Farrell
#123. In Stage I, divorces were not allowed, so men's [sexual] affairs did not put women's economic security in jeopardy; in Stage II, affairs could lead to divorce, so men's affairs did place women's economic security in jeopardy. We did not want political leaders who would be role models for behavior that would put women's economic security in jeopardy. #Quote by Warren Farrell
Political Leaders quotes by Ayesha Jalal
#124. Except in Punjab and the NWFP, the central government's Kashmir policy had little support in Sindh or Balochistan and even less in East Bengal. Instead of serving the people, civil servants and their allies in the army hoisted the political leaders with their Kashmir petard to become the veritable masters of the manor through autocratic and unconstitutional means. #Quote by Ayesha Jalal
Political Leaders quotes by Milton Friedman
#125. Political leaders in capitalist countries who cheer the collapse of socialism in other countries continue to favor socialist solutions in their own. They know the words, but they have not learned the tune. #Quote by Milton Friedman
Political Leaders quotes by Peggy Noonan
#126. We must try again to be alive to what the people of our country really long for in our national life: forgiveness and grace, maturity and wisdom.
... Our political leaders will know our priorities only if we tell them, again and again, and if those priorities begin to show up in the polls. #Quote by Peggy Noonan
Political Leaders quotes by Antony Beevor
#127. Few things reveal more about political leaders and their systems than the manner of their downfall, #Quote by Antony Beevor
Political Leaders quotes by Naomi Klein
#128. Indeed, the failure of our political leaders to even attempt to ensure a safe future for us represents a crisis of legitimacy of almost unfathomable proportions. #Quote by Naomi Klein
Political Leaders quotes by John Avlon
#129. What's different now is that while political leaders used to give talking points to talk radio, now talk-radio hosts are giving talking points to political leaders. It's all part of the suffocating spin cycle we're in. In media, politics and publishing, the conventional wisdom is to play to this base. #Quote by John Avlon
Political Leaders quotes by Nina Easton
#130. Community colleges are popular among political leaders of both parties. But because of the lack of funding and a lack of direction, they have lost their critical edge in preparing workers for a 21st-century economy. #Quote by Nina Easton
Political Leaders quotes by William H. Calvin
#131. It's going to be like herding stray cats, and the political leaders who can do it will be remembered as the same kind of geniuses who pulled off the American Revolution. #Quote by William H. Calvin
Political Leaders quotes by Winnie Byanyima
#132. A few years ago the idea that extreme poverty was harmful was on the fringes of the economic and political debate. But having made the case we are now seeing an emerging consensus among business leaders, economic leaders, political leaders and even faith leaders. #Quote by Winnie Byanyima
Political Leaders quotes by Martin Jacques
#133. With the United States in slow long-term decline, how will that affect the position of English? And where will all that leave monolingual Britain? Our political leaders like to boast about how global Britain is, but when it comes to languages, it is near the bottom of the global league, together with another island state, Japan. #Quote by Martin Jacques
Political Leaders quotes by Jeremy Rifkin
#134. We have come to discover what we suspect is a new political mindset emerging among a younger generation of political leaders socialized on Internet communications. Their politics are less about right versus left and more about centralized and authoritarian versus distributed and collaborative. #Quote by Jeremy Rifkin
Political Leaders quotes by Fritjof Capra
#135. There are solutions to the major problems of our time; some of them even simple. But they require a radical shift in our perceptions, our thinking, our values. And, indeed, we are now at the beginning of such a fundamental change of worldview in science and society, a change of paradigms as radical as the Copernican revolution. Unfortunately, this realization has not yet dawned on most of our political leaders, who are unable to "connect the dots," to use a popular phrase. #Quote by Fritjof Capra
Political Leaders quotes by Barack Obama
#136. The terms of peace may be negotiated by political leaders, but the fate of peace is up to each of us. #Quote by Barack Obama
Political Leaders quotes by Martin Gardner
#137. Biographical history, as taught in our public schools, is still largely a history of boneheads: ridiculous kings and queens, paranoid political leaders, compulsive voyagers, ignorant generals - the flotsam and jetsam of historical currents. The men who radically altered history, the great scientists and mathematicians, are seldom mentioned, if at all. #Quote by Martin Gardner
Political Leaders quotes by John Lindsay
#138. We see political leaders replacing moral imperatives with a Southern strategy. We have seen all too clearly that there are men-now in power in this country-who do not respect dissent, who cannot cope with turmoil, and who believe that the people of America are ready to support repression as long as it is done with a quiet voice and a business suit. And it is up to us to prove that they are wrong. #Quote by John Lindsay
Political Leaders quotes by Vladimir Lenin
#139. A political leader who desires to be useful to the revolutionary proletariat must be able to distinguish concrete cases of compromises that are inexcusable and are an expression of opportunism and treachery. #Quote by Vladimir Lenin
Political Leaders quotes by Martin Luther King, Jr.
#140. Negro leaders sought to negotiate with the city fathers. But the political leaders consistently refused to engage in good-faith negotiation. #Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr.
Political Leaders quotes by Madeleine Albright
#141. The religious scholars I have consulted are passionate about the need for political leaders to educate themselves in the varieties of faith and to see religion more as a potential means for reconciliation than as a source of conflict. #Quote by Madeleine Albright
Political Leaders quotes by Robert Webb
#142. The way people imagine their political leaders is, like it or not, an important factor in how they decide to vote and, indeed, whether they vote at all. #Quote by Robert Webb
Political Leaders quotes by Tadashi Yanai
#143. As a businessperson, I don't have the power to change the government. That is in the hands of the political leaders. However, as a taxpayer, we have the right to be critical of the government and demand change. #Quote by Tadashi Yanai
Political Leaders quotes by David Halberstam
#144. Some of his [Chester Bowles's] friends thought that his entire political career reflected his background, that he truly believed in the idea of the Republic, with an expanded town-hall concept of politics, of political leaders consulting with their constituency, hearing them out, reasoning with them, coming to terms with them, government old-fashioned and unmanipulative. Such governments truly had to reflect their constituencies. It was his view not just of America, but of the whole world. Bowles was fascinated by the political process in which people of various countries expressed themselves politically instead of following orders imposed by an imperious leadership. In a modern world where most politicians tended to see the world divided in a death struggle between Communism and free-world democracies, it was an old-fashioned view of politics; it meant that Bowles was less likely to judge a country on whether or not it was Communist, but on whether or not its government seemed to reflect genuine indigenous feeling. (If he was critical of the Soviet leadership, he was more sympathetic to Communist governments in the underdeveloped world.) He was less impressed by the form of a government than by his own impression of its sense of legitimacy. ... He did not particularly value money (indeed, he was ill at ease with it), he did not share the usual political ideas of the rich, and he was extremely aware of the hardships with which most Americans lived. Instead of hiring highly pa #Quote by David Halberstam
Political Leaders quotes by Una McCormack
#145. But it was all lies! If Tret and Colat and the rest are going to be the next generation of political leaders, why tell them lies? If they don't hear the truther, they'll think that nothing wrong happened! Tret thinks that nothing about Cardassia is wrong! He, his friends --they'll make the same mistakes over and over again. The Occupation will happen over and over again! #Quote by Una McCormack
Political Leaders quotes by Jon Gertner
#146. I don't know how history is taught here in Japan, " he told the audience when he traveled there in 1985 to give an acceptance speech, "but in the United States in my college days, most of the time was spent on the study of political leaders and wars – Ceasars, Napoleons, and Hitlers. I think this is totally wrong. The important people and events of history are the thinkers and innovators, the Darwins, Newtons, Beethovens whose work continues to grow in influence in a positive fashion #Quote by Jon Gertner
Political Leaders quotes by L. Ron Hubbard
#147. You may have noticed that society is rapidly going downhill. Inflation, lack of fuel and even war cast deep shadows over the world. And the most serious part of this is that drugs, both medical and street drugs, have disabled a majority of those who could have handled it, including the political leaders, and have even paralyzed the coming generations. #Quote by L. Ron Hubbard
Political Leaders quotes by Aung San Suu Kyi
#148. We have been making constant efforts, all the time, to start dialogue with the SLORC, but you know it takes two. We don't want a monologue. We would like a substantive political dialogue among the SLORC, political leaders including myself, and leaders of ethnic groups-exactly as stipulated in the U.N. General Assembly resolution on Burma. #Quote by Aung San Suu Kyi
Political Leaders quotes by Alva Myrdal
#149. I personally believe that those who are leaders with political power over the world will be forced some day, sooner or later, to give way to common sense and the will of the people. #Quote by Alva Myrdal
Political Leaders quotes by Katherine Anne Porter
#150. If you are required to kill someone today, on the promise of a political leader that someone else shall live in peace tomorrow, believe me, you are not only a double murderer, you are a suicide, too. #Quote by Katherine Anne Porter
Political Leaders quotes by David Icke
#151. There is always money for war. You never hear political leaders say they can't go to war because the country can't afford it. They claim not to have money for the poor, homeless and hungry, but war? It's never a problem. #Quote by David Icke
Political Leaders quotes by Jonathan Sacks
#152. As the political leaders of Europe meet to save the euro and European Union, so should religious leaders. #Quote by Jonathan Sacks
Political Leaders quotes by Awdhesh Singh
#153. If people have faith, peace prevails among them. There is no logic for peace. In fact, peace is the most illogical thing in this world. If we see inequality, injustice and poverty around the world, often we think - 'why people don't fight for their rights?' Peace is a miracle, which defies all logic. Political leaders are clever and they destroy peace by inventing logic that creates hatred. Even in war, the logic put forward by both the sides are totally contradictory, and both the sides feel that they are right. #Quote by Awdhesh Singh
Political Leaders quotes by Douglas T. Kenrick
#154. If there is any hope for changing the world for the better, from reducing family violence to reversing overpopulation and international conflict, economists, educators, and political leaders will need to base their interventions on a sound understanding of what people are really like, not on some fairy-tale version of what we would like them to be. #Quote by Douglas T. Kenrick
Political Leaders quotes by Sam Hamill
#155. We're certainly not perfect, and we're not probably even better than anybody else, except that perhaps we are given to certain kinds of contemplation that provide a valuable balance to the knee-jerk reactionary behavior of most of our newspapers and political leaders. Poets are great doubters. #Quote by Sam Hamill
Political Leaders quotes by Nelson Mandela
#156. We cannot proclaim this century the African Century and then ignore the AIDS pandemic, as some political leaders are apt to do. To claim this century the African Century is to declare war on AIDS. #Quote by Nelson Mandela
Political Leaders quotes by John T. Flynn
#157. In different countries the basis of resistance takes different forms, but it comes chiefly from the conservative groups. Hence it becomes increasingly difficult to go on spending in the presence of persisting deficits and rising debt. Some form of spending must be found that will command the support of the conservative groups. Political leaders, embarrassed by their subsidies to the poor, soon learned that one of the easiest ways to spend money is on military establishments and armaments, because it commands the support of the groups most opposed to spending. #Quote by John T. Flynn
Political Leaders quotes by Judith C. Waller
#158. Advertisers as well as political leaders long ago found that it is easier to appeal to the people through the heart than through the mind. Programs built with an emotional people are sure to draw the largest audiences and the biggest response. Workers in the field of educational radio are loath to acknowledge this truism, maintaining that certain programs must be built to appeal to the intellect. Of course, they are right, but that is the minority appeal. #Quote by Judith C. Waller
Political Leaders quotes by Tim Bishop
#159. Hopefully, Serbia's political leaders will not only recognize the seriousness which we attach to this case but also understand that it is in Serbia's interest to let justice work to sever the ties with the Milosevic past that have held the country back from a Europe where it otherwise belongs. #Quote by Tim Bishop
Political Leaders quotes by Jon Krakauer
#160. For years he had complained that political leaders were disregarding their sworn duty to safeguard the Mormons' constitutionally guaranteed freedom to worship without being subjected to harassment, and worse, at the hands of the religious majority. Yet in both word and deed, Joseph repeatedly demonstrated that he himself had little respect for the religious views of non-Mormons, and was unlikely to respect the constitutional rights of other faiths if he somehow won the presidency and were running the show. #Quote by Jon Krakauer
Political Leaders quotes by Charles Colson
#161. Many people are trying to remove religion from public life. Under the banner of pluralism, cultural and political leaders are seeking to push all talk about God out of the public arena. #Quote by Charles Colson
Political Leaders quotes by Ehud Olmert
#162. Political leaders can help change the psychological climate which affects the quality of relationships among people. #Quote by Ehud Olmert
Political Leaders quotes by Oliver DeMille
#163. Until the American majority is willing to live within its means, it can hardly force its political leaders to do so. #Quote by Oliver DeMille
Political Leaders quotes by Barbara Mikulski
#164. Leadership is creating a state of mind in others. The difference between being a leader and manager, all due respect to managers, is that leaders have to create states of mind. But a leader, first of all, has to have a clear state of mind, which is usually her own vision, which energizes her, motivates others, and then creates that state of mind in others. #Quote by Barbara Mikulski
Political Leaders quotes by Leif Erikson
#165. We are all leaders-whether we want to be or not. There is always someone we are influencing-either leading them to good-or away from good. #Quote by Leif Erikson
Political Leaders quotes by Nicola Cabibbo
#166. Science that abdicates its cultural values risks being perceived as an extension of technology, an instrument in the hands of political or economic power. Humanity that disavows science risks falling into the hands of superstition. #Quote by Nicola Cabibbo
Political Leaders quotes by David Brock
#167. You get to a point where the factual adjudication doesn't matter because there are all these other outlets that are far less responsible, all talking about the ad, some of which have a political reason for promoting it. #Quote by David Brock
Political Leaders quotes by John Luther Adams
#168. As a composer, I believe that music has the power to inspire a renewal of human consciousness, culture, and politics. And yet I refuse to make political art. More often than not political art fails as politics, and all too often it fails as art. To reach its fullest power, to be most moving and most fully useful to us, art must be itself. #Quote by John Luther Adams
Political Leaders quotes by Barack Obama
#169. Muslim leaders around the globe have to continue working with us to decisively and unequivocally reject the hateful ideology that groups like ISIL and al Qaeda promote. To speak out against not just acts of violence, but also those interpretations of Islam that are incompatible with the values of religious tolerance, mutual respect, and human dignity. #Quote by Barack Obama
Political Leaders quotes by Al Gore
#170. All of us can make changes, but the changes that are most needed are not light bulbs and windows but laws and policies and treaties. So, yes, we are in a phase of this (climate protection) struggle where civic and political action is at the top of the list. #Quote by Al Gore
Political Leaders quotes by Wilfrid Laurier
#171. Why, so soon as French Canadians, who are in a minority in this House and in the country, were to organise as a political party, they would compel the majority to organise as a political party, and the result must be disastrous to themselves. #Quote by Wilfrid Laurier
Political Leaders quotes by Bo Lozoff
#172. In the midst of global crises such as pollution, wars and famine, kindness may be too easily dismissed as a 'soft' issue, or a luxury to be addressed after the urgent problems are solved. But kindness is the greatest need in all those areas - kindness toward the environment, toward other nations, toward the needs of people who are suffering. Until we reflect basic kindness in everything we do, our political gestures will be fleeting and fragile. #Quote by Bo Lozoff
Political Leaders quotes by Emma Goldman
#173. In modern capitalism economic exploitation rather than political oppression is the real enemy of the people. #Quote by Emma Goldman
Political Leaders quotes by Tina Brown
#174. Obamacare is the wildly complex Rube Goldberg contraption it is because getting the legislation through Congress required so many political tradeoffs and so many unavoidable deals with so many vested interests. But that's no excuse. #Quote by Tina Brown
Political Leaders quotes by Adam Smith
#175. I have no faith in political arithmetic. #Quote by Adam Smith
Political Leaders quotes by Jon Gordon
#176. When leaders become focused on the fruit instead of the root and worry about the outcome instead of the process of developing team members, they may survive in the short run, but they will not thrive in the long run. #Quote by Jon Gordon
Political Leaders quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#177. When the sun sets, life gets darker in the country; when a bad leader sinks, life gets brighter in the country! #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan
Political Leaders quotes by Warren Bennis
#178. Leaders know the importance of having someone in their lives who will unfailingly and fearlessly tell them the truth. #Quote by Warren Bennis
Political Leaders quotes by Joseph Stalin
#179. In speaking of the capitalists who strive only for profit, only to get rich, I do not want to say that these are the most worthless people capable of doing nothing else. Many of them undoubtedly possess great organising talent, which I would not dream of denying. We Soviet people learn a lot from the capitalists. But if you mean people who are prepared to reconstruct the world, of course you will not be able to find them in the ranks of those who faithfully serve the cause of profit..The capitalist is riveted in profit and nothing can tear him away from it. #Quote by Joseph Stalin
Political Leaders quotes by Peter Drucker
#180. The world political system is till based on the concept of the national sovereign state. For the first time therefore, in three hundred years economy and sovereignty are becoming divorced from each other. #Quote by Peter Drucker
Political Leaders quotes by Frederick The Great
#181. A prince ... is only the first servant of the state, who is obliged to act with probity and prudence. ... As the sovereign is properly the head of a family of citizens, the father of his people, he ought on all occasions to be the last refuge of the unfortunate. #Quote by Frederick The Great
Political Leaders quotes by Myles Munroe
#182. True leaders don't invest in buildings. Jesus never built a building. They invest in people. Why? Because success without a successor is failure. So your legacy should not be in buildings, programs, or projects; your legacy must be in people. #Quote by Myles Munroe
Political Leaders quotes by Ted Koppel
#183. Today, reports of the day's events are conveyed to the viewing public by way of alternate universes, The Fox News cable channel conveys its version of reality, while at the other end of the ideological spectrum MSNBC presents its version. They and their many counterparts on radio are more the result of an economic dynamic than a political one. Dispatching journalists into the field to gather information costs money; hiring a glib bloviator is relatively cheap, and inviting opinionated guests to vent on the air is entirely cost-free. It wouldn't work if it weren't popular, and audiences, it turns out, are endlessly absorbed by hearing amplified echoes of their own biases. It's divisive and damaging to the healthy functioning of our political system, but it's also indisputably inexpensive and, therefore, good business. #Quote by Ted Koppel
Political Leaders quotes by Timothy Shah
#184. We believe that liberty of religious faith is the first and foremost freedom in human society, is a universal value in the international community, and is also the foundation for other political and property rights. Without the universal and equitable liberty of religious faith, a multi-ethnic, multi-religion country would not be able to form a peaceful civil society, or bring about social stability, ethnic solidarity or the nation's prosperity. - THE PASTORS OF THE SHOUWANG CHURCH BEIJING, CHINA, MAY 2011 #Quote by Timothy Shah
Political Leaders quotes by Audie Murphy
#185. The true meaning of America, you ask? It's in a Texas rodeo, in a policeman's badge, in the sound of laughing children, in a political rally, in a newspaper ... In all these things, and many more, you'll find America. In all these things, you'll find freedom. And freedom is what America means to the world. And to me. #Quote by Audie Murphy
Political Leaders quotes by Iveta Radicova
#186. In some countries we have had the right to vote for less than 100 years, so the entry of women into political leadership has caused a tsunami. #Quote by Iveta Radicova
Political Leaders quotes by William T. Sherman
#187. I hereby state, and mean all that I say, that I never have been and never will be a candidate for President; that if nominated by either party, I should peremptorily decline; and even if unanimously elected I should decline to serve. #Quote by William T. Sherman
Political Leaders quotes by Jake Shimabukuro
#188. I thought I'd grow up to be a teacher, or maybe run for political office. #Quote by Jake Shimabukuro
Political Leaders quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#189. All modern philosophizing is political, policed by governments, churches, academics, custom, fashion, and human cowardice, all off which limit it to a fake learnedness. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Political Leaders quotes by Timothy Garton Ash
#190. I find Chinese debates about their political system domestically, but also about China's claims in the international system, to be among the most original and surprising and exciting of our time. The starting point is a system that none of us had anticipated, which I call Leninist capitalism, but also obviously because it is the most important emerging power. The question of China's relations with the United States in particular, and the rest of the world in general, is the question of war and peace in the 21st century. #Quote by Timothy Garton Ash
Political Leaders quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#191. A nation usually renews its youth on a political sick-bed, and there finds again the spirit which it had gradually lost in seeking and maintaining power. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Political Leaders quotes by Neale Donald Walsch
#192. It is still true that the life we have created for ourselves on this earth is not working. Not one of the systems we have put into place in our world is functional - not the political, not the economical, not the ecological, not the educational, not the social, and not the spiritual. None of them are producing the outcomes we say we want. In fact, it's worse. They are producing the outcomes we say we don't want. #Quote by Neale Donald Walsch
Political Leaders quotes by Neil Young
#193. My life is not a political campaign. I just write about what is on my mind. I just play whatever I feel like playing. Whatever is in my soul at the time is what I want to do. I have, thank god, enough people who are still interested in what I am doing so that I can go out and keep doing it. #Quote by Neil Young
Political Leaders quotes by Henry St John, 1st Viscount Bolingbroke
#194. Faction is to party what the superlative is to the positive. Party is a political evil, and faction is the worst of all parties. #Quote by Henry St John, 1st Viscount Bolingbroke
