Public Sector quotes by Jakub Bozydar Wisniewski
#1. Whenever one feels like saying "the money that billionaire spent on his fleet of yachts could have been used better by the "public sector"", one should ask oneself when was the last time one heard of a billionaire buying an army of tanks and a set of nuclear weapons. #Quote by Jakub Bozydar Wisniewski
Public Sector quotes by Michael Bloomberg
#2. Most people won't have opportunity to do full-time service, but those lucky enough to have monetary wealth or some spare time really can make an enormous difference. As someone who's now in the public sector, and is seeing up-close-and-personal the real impact of what we do and what we give, I can tell you: every dollar and every volunteer help, in more ways than you can count. #Quote by Michael Bloomberg
Public Sector quotes by Manmohan Singh
#3. Yes, I think India's economy always has been a mixed economy, and by Western standards we are much more of a market economy than a public sector-driven economy. #Quote by Manmohan Singh
Public Sector quotes by James C. Scott
#4. The petite bourgeoise and small property in general represent a precious zone of autonomy and freedom in state systems increasingly dominated by large public and private bureaucracies. #Quote by James C. Scott
Public Sector quotes by Jeffrey Tucker
#5. The problems in every country are the same. Bureaucracy is strangling innovation. Overgrown political sectors are sucking away resources that could otherwise lead to growth. Regulations and taxes are punishing innovation. Public sector services are breaking down and no longer serving people's needs. Laws and prevailing legislation control a world that no longer exists. People who go into politics to change the system end up getting co-opted by it. Workers feel trapped and fear a lack out options outside the status quo. In every case, it comes down to the great evil of our time and all times: government itself. There is no place on earth in which more liberty and less or no government would not be welcome and bring about real progress. #Quote by Jeffrey Tucker
Public Sector quotes by Winston Churchill
#6. Are you an action-oriented, take-charge person interested in exciting new challenges? As director of a major public-sector organization, you will manage a large armed division and interface with other senior executives in a team-oriented, multinational initiative in the global marketplace. Successful candidate will have above-average oral-presentation skills #Quote by Winston Churchill
Public Sector quotes by Rashida Jones
#7. You know, I definitely have an inclination to work in the public sector. #Quote by Rashida Jones
Public Sector quotes by Scott Walker
#8. It is only fair to expect public employees like me and others in the public sector to pay something close to what our neighbors and our fellow citizens do in the private sector. #Quote by Scott Walker
Public Sector quotes by Tony Blair
#9. My view is that you still, in order to win from the Labour perspective, have to have a strong alliance with business as well as the unions. You have got to be very much in the centre ground on things like public sector reform. #Quote by Tony Blair
Public Sector quotes by Russell Pearce
#10. It takes four private-sector jobs to support every public-sector employee. #Quote by Russell Pearce
Public Sector quotes by Jesse Ventura
#11. [the downfall of our political system is the] buying and selling of politicians ... bribery. In the private sector, you're arrested for it. In the public sector, it's the norm ... #Quote by Jesse Ventura
Public Sector quotes by Steven Johnson
#12. ... it is the public sector I find more interesting, because governments and other non-market institutions have long suffered from the innovation malaise of top-heavy bureaucracies. Today, these institutions have an opportunity to fundamentally alter the way they cultivate and promote good ideas. The more the government thinks of itself as an open platform instead of a centralized bureaucracy, the better it will be for all of us, citizens and activists, and entrepreneurs alike. #Quote by Steven Johnson
Public Sector quotes by Herman E. Daly
#13. While the invisible hand looks after the private sector, the invisible foot kicks the public sector to pieces. #Quote by Herman E. Daly
Public Sector quotes by Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero
#14. It is true that renewable energy is expensive and can't be done without public sector support, it is an important investment in the future. #Quote by Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero
Public Sector quotes by Eric Schneiderman
#15. If you have faith in the public sector, as I do, you must be the harshest critic of corruption, waste and fraud in government. #Quote by Eric Schneiderman
Public Sector quotes by Carol W. Greider
#16. Students and postdoctoral fellows largely depend on the support of the public sector to finance the training and research that will make them world-renowned scientists. #Quote by Carol W. Greider
Public Sector quotes by Martin McGuinness
#17. Austerity is devastating these communities. The working poor, public sector workers, the disabled, and the vulnerable are the hardest hit by this bankrupt and ideologically driven policy. #Quote by Martin McGuinness
Public Sector quotes by Henry Hazlitt
#18. The 'private sector' of the economy is, in fact, the voluntary sector; and the 'public sector' is, in fact, the coercive sector. #Quote by Henry Hazlitt
Public Sector quotes by Narendra Modi
#19. I recently assured Public Sector Banks they will have total autonomy in taking business decisions. #Quote by Narendra Modi
Public Sector quotes by Llewellyn Rockwell
#20. In any government bureaucracy, they are not working for you but for the mythical blob called the 'public sector,' which is really nothing but a stash of stolen cash divided among the robber class. #Quote by Llewellyn Rockwell
Public Sector quotes by Jeremy Corbyn
#21. Our problem in the 2015 general election was that for all the good stuff that was in the Labour manifesto, we were still going to be freezing public sector wages, cutting council expenditure, laying off civil servants. We were offering 'austerity light' instead of a real alternative. #Quote by Jeremy Corbyn
Public Sector quotes by Peter Diamandis
#22. Large-scale philanthropy, based in the private - not the public - sector, is a relatively recent historical development. #Quote by Peter Diamandis
Public Sector quotes by Alexis Herman
#23. The public sector certainly includes the Department of Labor. Those are jobs that are available. They are open and they are good paying jobs. The government as a whole has been actually retrenching under President Clinton's leadership. #Quote by Alexis Herman
Public Sector quotes by Michael Hureaux-Perez
#24. All the mega corporations on the planet make their obscene profits off the labor and suffering of others, with complete disregard for the effects on the workers, environment, and future generations. As with the banking sector, they play games with the lives of millions, hysterically reject any kind of government intervention when the profits are rolling in, but are quick to pass the bill for the cleanup and the far-reaching consequences of these avoidable tragedies to the public when things go wrong. We have a straightforward proposal: if they want public money, we want public control. It's that simple. #Quote by Michael Hureaux-Perez
Public Sector quotes by Noam Chomsky
#25. [Obama] was highly praised, including by his supporters, for his statesmanlike attitude during the lame-duck session, bipartisanship, and getting legislation through. What did he get through? The main achievement was a huge tax cut for the extremely wealthy ... Meanwhile, at the same time, he initiated a tax increase on federal workers. Of course, no one called it a tax increase. That doesn't sound good. They called it a pay freeze. But a pay freeze on public-sector workers is exactly the same thing as a tax increase. So we punish public-sector workers and reward the executives of Goldman Sachs, who just announced a $17.5 billion compensation package for themselves. #Quote by Noam Chomsky
Public Sector quotes by Chris Christie
#26. They said it was impossible to touch the third rail of politics, to take on public-sector unions and to reform a pension and health benefits system that was headed to bankruptcy. But with bipartisan leadership, we saved taxpayers $132 billion dollars over 30 years and saved retirees their pensions. We did it. #Quote by Chris Christie
Public Sector quotes by Mark Steyn
#27. Much of America is now in need of an equivalent of Mrs. Thatcher's privatization program in 1980s Britain, or post-Soviet Eastern Europe's economic liberalization in the early Nineties. It's hard to close down government bodies, but it should be possible to sell them off. And a side benefit to outsourcing the Bureau of Government Agencies and the Agency of Government Bureaus is that you'd also be privatizing public-sector unions, which are the biggest and most direct assault on freedom, civic integrity, and fiscal solvency. #Quote by Mark Steyn
Public Sector quotes by Robert Kuttner
#28. American critics of welfare statism are often surprised to learn that countries like West Germany, with a much more comprehensive welfare state and a statistically larger public sector, have fewer government employees per capita than the United States does. #Quote by Robert Kuttner
Public Sector quotes by Estelle Morris
#29. My focus and that of all members of the Government responsible for delivering services to the public is to make sure that the public sector can use all the skills it needs to do the job the public wants it to do. #Quote by Estelle Morris
Public Sector quotes by Thomas E. Mann
#30. Private sector labors unions continue to suffer losses in their membership while public sector and service unions grow. #Quote by Thomas E. Mann
Public Sector quotes by Charles P. Pierce
#31. This is yet another product of the immensely stupid notion of privatizing the proper functions of government, which is based on the colossally stupid notion that private industry is more honest and more efficient than the public sector, which is itself based on the transcendentally stupid decision by too many states that it is better to light their balls on fire than raise taxes in order to pay for anything anywhere at any time. #Quote by Charles P. Pierce
Public Sector quotes by Mark Skousen
#32. All workers, whether they are employed in the private or public sector, should avoid living 'paycheck to paycheck.' Studies show that every household wastes 10% or more of its salary or income on unnecessary expenditures or by not taking the time to shop for better prices. It's all a matter of proper budgeting. #Quote by Mark Skousen
Public Sector quotes by Joel Klein
#33. The trouble that public unions could potentially cause for citizens was one reason that President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, hero of Democrats and union organizers alike, opposed them for government workers. Republican Fiorello La Guardia, a great mayor of New York, opposed them, too. Unlike in the private sector, where unions were a needed counterweight to strong management, in the public sector unions had a big say in selecting management through the election process. As a result, they had a lot of power on both sides of the labor-management negotiating process. Roosevelt and La Guardia thus feared that, when government officials and unions battled over power, citizens could lose out. #Quote by Joel Klein
Public Sector quotes by Paul Farmer
#34. You can't have public health without working with the public sector. You can't have public education without working with the public sector in education. #Quote by Paul Farmer
Public Sector quotes by Arlie Russell Hochschild
#35. As one man explains, "A lot of us have done okay, but we don't want to lose what we've got, see it given away." When I ask him what he saw as being "given away," it was not public waters given to dumpers, or clean air give to smoke stacks. It was not health or years of life. It was not lost public sector jobs. What he felt was being given away was tax money to support non-working people and non-deserving people--and not just tax money, but honor too. #Quote by Arlie Russell Hochschild
Public Sector quotes by Newt Gingrich
#36. Indicate which principles you support regarding affirmative action and discrimination. 1. The federal government should discontinue affirmative action programs. 2. The federal government should prosecute cases of discrimination in the public sector. 3. The federal government should prosecute cases of discrimination in the private sector. #Quote by Newt Gingrich
Public Sector quotes by Murray Rothbard
#37. The public sector can only feed off the private sector; it necessarily lives parasitically upon the private economy. But this means that the productive resources of society - far from satisfying the wants of consumers - are now directed, by compulsion, away from these wants and needs. The consumers are deliberately thwarted, and the resources of the economy diverted from them to those activities desire by the parasitic bureaucracy and politicians. #Quote by Murray Rothbard
Public Sector quotes by Keith Joseph
#38. We are now more Socialist in many ways than any other developed country outside the Communist bloc - in the size of the public sector, the range of controls and the telescoping of net income. And what is the result? Compare our position today with that of our neighbours in north west Europe - Germany, Sweden, Holland, France. They are no more talented than we are. Yet, compared with them, we have the longest working hours, the lowest pay and the lowest production per head. We have the highest taxes and the lowest investment. We have the least prosperity, the most poor and the lowest pensions. We have the largest nationalized sector and the worst labour troubles. #Quote by Keith Joseph
Public Sector quotes by John W. Gardner
#39. Tax reduction has an almost irresistible appeal to the politician, and it is no doubt also gratifying to the citizen. It means more dollars in his pocket, dollars that he can spend if inflation doesn't consume them first. But dollars in his pocket won't buy him clean streets or an adequate police force or good schools or clean air and water. Handing money back to the private sector in tax cuts and starving the public sector is a formula for producing richer and richer consumers in filthier and filthier communities. If we stick to that formula we shall end up in affluent misery. #Quote by John W. Gardner
Public Sector quotes by Francis Fukuyama
#40. I argued earlier that clientelism is an early form of democracy: in societies with masses of poor and poorly educated voters, the easiest form of electoral mobilization is often the provision of individual benefits such as public-sector jobs, handouts, or political favors. This suggests that clientelism will start to decline as voters become wealthier. Not only does it cost more for politicians to bribe them, but the voters see their interests tied up with broader public policies rather than individual benefits. #Quote by Francis Fukuyama
Public Sector quotes by Anonymous
#41. A study of project and risk management in software projects in the public sector found that an informal partnership between the project's business owner and the project manager was seen by the latter as providing more effective project proprietorship and governance than the project steering committee [1]. This suggests that the application of governance may be more important than its form. This paper, however, focuses only on formal and explicit governance #Quote by Anonymous
Public Sector quotes by Philip Coggan
#42. As these debts become due, rich creditors will be pitted against poor debtors; private-sector taxpayers against public-sector workers, young workers against the retired, domestic voters against foreign bondholders. It is impossible to forecast who will win each of these battles but one thing seems certain: not all these debts will be paid in full. #Quote by Philip Coggan
Public Sector quotes by Jon Meacham
#43. It would be wonderful if the public sector were always great, or always terrible; or if the private sector were always great, or always terrible. Alas, reality is more complicated than comforting caricatures. Governments fail, and corporations fail. #Quote by Jon Meacham
Public Sector quotes by Scott Walker
#44. My problem with public sector union leaders, the bosses, has been they stood in the way of protecting the taxpayer. #Quote by Scott Walker
Public Sector quotes by John Podhoretz
#45. Obama's explanation for the slowdown in economic growth is that the public sector is hurting, and that's where Washington must step in and act. #Quote by John Podhoretz
Public Sector quotes by Mortimer Zuckerman
#46. Americans cannot maintain their essential faith in government if there are two Americas, in which the private sector's work subsidizes the disproportionate benefits of this new public sector elite. #Quote by Mortimer Zuckerman
Public Sector quotes by Robert Reich
#47. The fastest growing occupation in the private sector is security guards. The fastest growing occupation in the public sector is prison guards. (1992) #Quote by Robert Reich
Public Sector quotes by Jack Welch
#48. If we don't create private sector jobs and just - just creating public sector jobs, we're going nowhere. This is a bad game. You've got to have innovation. You've got to have tax policies that support innovation. #Quote by Jack Welch
Public Sector quotes by Philip Freelon
#49. I don't do casinos or prisons; I like to do projects that enhance the lives of everyday people, like campus buildings, libraries, museums and government buildings. That's why I love working in the public sector. #Quote by Philip Freelon
Public Sector quotes by Subhash Lakhotia
#50. Small is beautiful. This is what Mother Teresa used to say always. What Mother Teresa used to say is a reality in the spiritual world as also in the investment world. Taking inspiration from the quotation of Mother Teresa think of making a small investment in the Public Sector Undertaking shares which are offered to the small investors at a discounted price of say 5 per cent. #Quote by Subhash Lakhotia
Public Sector quotes by Arlie Russell Hochschild
#51. For the left, the flashpoint is up the class ladder (between the very top and the rest); for the right, it is down between the middle class and the poor. For the left, the flashpoint is centered in the private sector; for the right, in the public sector. Ironically, both call for an honest day's pay for an honest day's work. #Quote by Arlie Russell Hochschild
Public Sector quotes by Ben Bernanke
#52. Economic management involves the operation of economic frameworks in real time - for example, in the private sector, the management of complex financial institutions or, in the public sector, the day-to-day supervision of those institutions. #Quote by Ben Bernanke
Public Sector quotes by Jim Talent
#53. When the private does well, there's revenue for the public sector. #Quote by Jim Talent
Public Sector quotes by Charles Krauthammer
#54. Obama's Democrats have become the part of no. Real cuts to federal budget? No. Entitlement reform? No. Tax reform? No. Breaking the corrupt and fiscally unsustainable symbiosis between public-sector unions and state governments? Hell no. #Quote by Charles Krauthammer
Public Sector quotes by John Gates
#55. Railroads are the primary economic beneficiaries. It's a difficult project for the public sector. #Quote by John Gates
Public Sector quotes by Pallam Raju
#56. There is definitely a need for increasing capacity in higher education; a large part of this is being met in the technical education segment by the private sector and in the non-technical by the state sector. In the public sector, we will do whatever we can afford. #Quote by Pallam Raju
Public Sector quotes by Bartow J. Elmore
#57. For years, recycling programs proved unprofitable, and private institutions failed time and time again to create comprehensive programs that would dramatically reduce litter. Expensive recycling programs survived as the preferred and exclusive solution for solid-waste disposal in this country only because private corporations used their lobbying might to shift responsibility for the collection and recycling of corporate waste onto the public sector. In the end, consumers did most of the work, subsidizing (both through their labor and through taxes) the beverage industry's packaging-reclamation system, allowing companies to expand their operations without incurring increased costs. #Quote by Bartow J. Elmore
Public Sector quotes by Rob McKenna
#58. I recognize that as governor, my job is to sit on the other side of the table from the public sector unions and negotiate effectively on behalf of all the taxpayers of the state, including all of you. #Quote by Rob McKenna
Public Sector quotes by Noam Chomsky
#59. Private sector unionization is down to practically seven percent. Meanwhile the public sector unions have kind of sustained themselves [even] under attack, but in the last few years, there's been a sharp [increase in the] attack on public sector unions, which Barack Obama has participated in, in fact. When you freeze salaries of federal workers, that's equivalent to taxing public sector people. #Quote by Noam Chomsky
Public Sector quotes by Marilynne Robinson
#60. The alienation, the downright visceral frustration, of the new American ideologues, the bone in their craw, is the unacknowledged fact that America has never been an especially capitalist country. The postal system, the land grant provision for public education, the national park system, the Homestead Act, the graduated income tax, the Social Security system, the G.I. Bill
all of these were and are massive distributions or redistributions of wealth meant to benefit the population at large. #Quote by Marilynne Robinson
Public Sector quotes by Robert L. Hellbroner
#61. If I were asked to name the deadliest subversive force within capitalism
the single greatest source of its waning morality
I should without hesitation name advertising. How else should one identify a force that debases language, drains thought, and undoes dignity? If the barrage of advertising, unchanged in its tone and texture, were devoted to some other purpose
say the exaltation of the public sector
it would be recognized in a moment for the corrosive element that it is. But as the voice of the private sector it escapes this startled notice. I mention it only to point out that a deep source of moral decay for capitalism arises from its own doings, not from that of its governing institutions. #Quote by Robert L. Hellbroner
Public Sector quotes by David Rockefeller
#62. Philanthropy is involved with basic innovations that transform society, not simply maintaining the status quo or filling basic social needs that were formerly the province of the public sector. #Quote by David Rockefeller
Public Sector quotes by Dinesh D'Souza
#63. Obamacare is a program designed to shift control of the health care industry from the private sector to the public sector, from doctors, hospitals, and insurance companies to the federal government. The program was sold by Obama feigning outrage over insurance companies refusing to grant insurance to people with "preexisting conditions." But this is the same as an insurance company not granting fire insurance to a guy whose house has already burned down. The whole point of insurance is to share the risk before the catastrophe occurs, not to have a catastrophe and then get other people to pay for your losses. #Quote by Dinesh D'Souza
Public Sector quotes by Bill Halter
#64. If ask 100 Arkansans about the phrase, 'the public option,' or 'a public option,' you'll get 100 different impressions about what that means. #Quote by Bill Halter
Public Sector quotes by George Eliot
#65. I'll tell you what's the greatest power under heaven, and that is public opinion-the ruling belief in society about what is right and what is wrong, what is honourable and what is shameful. That's the steam that is to work the engines. #Quote by George Eliot
Public Sector quotes by Charles Bukowski
#66. First paycheck I get, I thought, I'm going to get myself a room near the downtown L.A. Public Library. #Quote by Charles Bukowski
Public Sector quotes by Jasper Fforde
#67. Librarying is a harder profession than the public realizes, he said. People think it's all rubber stamps, knowing that Dewey 521 is celestial mechanics and saying 'Try looking under fiction' sixty eight times a day. #Quote by Jasper Fforde
Public Sector quotes by Brent Crawford
#68. My heart skips a beat. Seriously, like a CD from the public library, it goes ZZebbTTT and skips. #Quote by Brent Crawford
Public Sector quotes by Peter Drucker
#69. Human beings need community. If there are no communities available for constructive ends, there will be destructive, murderous communities ... Only the social sector, that is, the nongovernmental, nonprofit organization, can create what we now need, communities for citizens ... What the dawning 21st century needs above all is equally explosive growth of the nonprofit social sector in building communities in the newly dominant social environment, the city. #Quote by Peter Drucker
Public Sector quotes by Mary Barnett Gilson
#70. Until both employers' and workers' groups assume responsibility for chastising their own recalcitrant children, they can vainly bay the moon about "ignorant" and "unfair" public criticism. Moreover, their failure to impose voluntarily upon their own groups codes of decency and honor will result in more and more necessity for government control. #Quote by Mary Barnett Gilson
Public Sector quotes by William Banting
#71. I am most thankful to Almighty Providence for mercies received, and determined still to press the case into public notice as a token of gratitude. #Quote by William Banting
Public Sector quotes by Jeev Milkha Singh
#72. I have been requesting the government because it is the government which has to allocate the land to build public courses. I am willing to meet the minister and discuss ways to make courses public and more accessible to the regular sports enthusiasts. #Quote by Jeev Milkha Singh
Public Sector quotes by Hubert H. Humphrey
#73. American public opinion is like an ocean, it cannot be stirred by a teaspoon. #Quote by Hubert H. Humphrey
Public Sector quotes by Mark Twain
#74. Do not fear the enemy, for your enemy can only take your life. It is far better that you fear the media, for they will steal your HONOR. That awful power, the public opinion of a nation, is created in America by a horde of ignorant, self-complacent simpletons who failed at ditching and shoemaking and fetched up in journalism on their way to the poorhouse. #Quote by Mark Twain
Public Sector quotes by Chris Martin
#75. I think that the fact that a relationship becomes public is a bit of a bummer. Because it can distract from the real reason why you're together, which is that you just like each other. #Quote by Chris Martin
Public Sector quotes by Moby
#76. I've dated attractive people and I don't find a correlation between amorous enthusiasm and beauty and public figure status. #Quote by Moby
Public Sector quotes by Friedrich Hayek
#77. We can unfortunately not indefinitely extend the sphere of common action and still leave the individual free in his own sphere. Once the communal sector, in which the state controls all the means, exceeds a certain proportion of the whole, the effects of its actions dominate the whole system. Although the state controls directly the use of only a large part of the available resources, the effects of its decisions on the remaining part of the economic system become so great that indirectly it controls almost everything. #Quote by Friedrich Hayek
Public Sector quotes by D. James Kennedy
#78. The Christian community has a golden opportunity to train an army of dedicated teachers who can invade the public school classrooms and use them to influence the nation for Christ. #Quote by D. James Kennedy
Public Sector quotes by David Titley
#79. Politicians have responsibility to act if the public opinion changes. Flooding, storms, droughts are all getting people talking about climate change. I wonder if someday Atlanta will run out of water? #Quote by David Titley
Public Sector quotes by John Calvin
#80. Musical instruments in celebrating the praises of God would be no more suitable than the burning of incense, the lighting of lamps, and the restoration of the other shadows of the law. The Papists therefore, have foolishly borrowed, this, as well as many other things, from the Jews. Men who are fond of outward pomp may delight in that noise; but the simplicity which God recommends to us by the apostles is far more pleasing to him. Paul allows us to bless God in the public assembly of the saints, only in a known tongue (1 Corinthians 14:16) What shall we then say of chanting, which fills the ears with nothing but an empty sound? #Quote by John Calvin
Public Sector quotes by Sandra Fluke
#81. Because we spoke so loudly, opponents of reproductive health access demonized and smeared me and others on the public airwaves. These smears are obvious attempts to distract from meaningful policy discussions and to silence women's voices regarding their own health care. #Quote by Sandra Fluke
Public Sector quotes by Ken Kesey
#82. I don't think you fully understand the public, my friend; in this country, when something is out of order, then the quickest way to get it fixed is the best way. #Quote by Ken Kesey
Public Sector quotes by Rex E. Lee
#83. I have no criticism of the basic concept of irrefutable authority. Properly employed, it is the easiest, the surest, and the proper way to resolve conflicts. There is an omnipresent temptation, however, to rely on such authority regardless of its applicability; and I know of no better examples than the scriptures and the Constitution.

We find it easy to lapse into the expansive notion that the Constitution, like the gospel, embraces all truth and that it protects and guarantees all that is right, equitable, and just. From that grand premise it is only a short and comfortable leap to the proposition that the Constitution embraces my particular notion of what is right, equitable, and just. The Constitution lends itself to this kind of use because of its breadth.

Issues such as foreign aid, fluoridation of water, public versus private education, progressive income tax, to which political party I should belong and which candidate I should support; questions about economic development and environmental quality control; questions about the power of labor unions and the influence of big business in government--all these are issues of great importance. But these questions cannot and ought not to be resolved by simply resorting to irrefutable authority. Neither the Constitution nor the scriptures contain answers to these questions, and under the grand plan of eternal progress it is our responsibility to develop our own skills by working out our own answers throug #Quote by Rex E. Lee
Public Sector quotes by James Madison
#84. It is a misfortune, inseparable from human affairs, that public measures are rarely investigated with that spirit of moderation which is essential to a just estimate of their real tendency to advance or obstruct the public good; and that this spirit is more apt to be diminished than prompted, by those occasions which require an unusual exercise of it. #Quote by James Madison
Public Sector quotes by Alveda King
#85. If we have an honest discussion on whether the war on poverty should be fought with welfare or with economic growth in the private sector, Democrats will lose black votes. #Quote by Alveda King
Public Sector quotes by Edmund Morgan
#86. In France, where Franklin had lived from 1776 to 1785, he had won an extraordinary place in the public mind. The French had lionized him to the point of absurdity - or so at least his colleagues in the American mission thought. #Quote by Edmund Morgan
Public Sector quotes by Bernie Sanders
#87. Do we substantially increase military spending and prepare for endless war in the middle-east, or do we make college affordable for all Americans, regardless of income. My answer: I will soon be introducing legislation that will make public colleges and universities tuition free. #Quote by Bernie Sanders
Public Sector quotes by Johnny Marr
#88. Growing up in public is a test, and not many people know how to do it. #Quote by Johnny Marr
Public Sector quotes by Samuel Johnson
#89. A patriot is he whose public conduct is regulated by one single motive, the love of his country; who, as an agent in parliament, has, for himself, neither hope nor fear, neither kindness nor resentment, but refers every thing to the common interest #Quote by Samuel Johnson
Public Sector quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#90. I may err in my measures, but never shall deflect from the intention to fortify the public liberty by every possible means, and to put it out of the power of the few to riot on the labors of the many. #Quote by Thomas Jefferson
Public Sector quotes by Milan Kundera
#91. Franz, on the other hand, was certain that the division of life into private and public spheres is the source of all lies: a person is one thing in private and something quite different in public. For Franz, living in truth meant breaking down the barriers between the private and the public. He was fond of quoting André Breton on the desirability of living "in a glass house" into which everyone can look and there are no secrets. #Quote by Milan Kundera
Public Sector quotes by Patricia Ireland
#92. We have to stop this violence. We have to make the political nature of the violence clear, that the violence we experience in our own homes is not a personal family matter, it's a public and political problem. It's a way that women are kept in line, kept in our places. #Quote by Patricia Ireland
Public Sector quotes by Jon Porter
#93. We have an epidemic of sexual predators following our children, whether it be on the computers, whether it be in our public parks, whether it be in the workplace, or even our schools. #Quote by Jon Porter
Public Sector quotes by Terri Osburn
#94. ...she had enough experience around testosterone to know the shit going through a man's head at any given moment should never be revealed for public consumption. Especially female public. #Quote by Terri Osburn
Public Sector quotes by Claudia Rankine
#95. For me her image, the triptych, became a study of the weight the black male figure carries, given the fact that they are targeted by the police, and are constantly in danger of being misread in public spaces. #Quote by Claudia Rankine
Public Sector quotes by Helen Prejean
#96. I have no doubt that we will one day abolish the death penalty in America. It will come sooner if people like me who know the truth about executions do our work well and educate the public. It will come slowly if we do not. Because, finally, I know that it is not a question of malice or ill will or meanness of spirit that prompts our citizens to support executions. It is, quite simply, that people don't know the truth of what is going on. That is not by accident. The secrecy surrounding executions makes it possible for executions to continue. I am convinced that if executions were made public, the torture and violence would be unmasked, and we would be shamed into abolishing executions. We would be embarrassed at the brutalization of the crowds that would gather to watch a man or woman be killed. And we would be humiliated to know that visitors from other countries - Japan, Russia, Latina America, Europe - were watching us kill our own citizens - we, who take pride in being the flagship of democracy in the world. (p. 197) #Quote by Helen Prejean
