United States quotes by Shashi Tharoor
#1. The United Nations is the preeminent institution of multilateralism. It provides a forum where sovereign states can come together to share burdens, address common problems, and seize common opportunities. The U.N. helps establish the norms that many countries - including the United States - would like everyone to live by. #Quote by Shashi Tharoor
United States quotes by Carly Fiorina
#2. While lawyers are arguing about the PATRIOT Act or the America Freedom Act, the point is, the terrorists have moved on, the technologists have moved on, and we, the United States of America, are not taking advantage of the latest and greatest in technology the terrorists are. We need to get smart about it. #Quote by Carly Fiorina
United States quotes by Bill Hicks
#3. See we just had a misunderstanding. I thought we lived in the U.S. of A., the United States of America. But actually we live in the U.S. of A., the United States of Advertising. Freedom of expression is guaranteed? If you've got the money! #Quote by Bill Hicks
United States quotes by Sandra Steingraber
#4. Here in the United States, a study of nearly 700 women in California showed an increased risk of fetal death among babies whose mothers lived near crops when certain pesticides were sprayed. The largest risks were found among pregnant women exposed during the critical first trimester and among those who lived in the same square mile where pesticides were used. #Quote by Sandra Steingraber
United States quotes by Alan E. Johnson
#5. During the nineteenth, twentieth, and early twenty-first centuries, certain politically active religious movements sought to have the United States declared - officially, if possible, but at least unofficially - a "Christian nation." This was an attempt to reverse the church-state separation principles and achievements of such great Founders as Thomas Jefferson and James Madison. Roger Williams, who was more religiously devout than just about anyone living in later centuries, opposed all attempts to call a particular nation "Christian," just as he opposed the terms "Christendom" and "Christian world." His arguments included a profound analysis of the importance of separation of church and state as well as a deep religious understanding of what Christianity is. #Quote by Alan E. Johnson
United States quotes by Donald Trump
#6. Mexico's making a fortune off the United States. #Quote by Donald Trump
United States quotes by Monica Drake
#7. To read 'Happy Talk' is to crash a party as vivid and surreal as Felini's 8. It's the business of show business, the American dream, told by a chorus of Americans locked just outside of that dream, outside of the United States, relegated to expatriate status on the shores of Haiti. Melo paints a version of Haiti that's an interior landscape perhaps even more than an externalized place. This Haiti is a plan, a memory, a morphine-drip fueled dream out to bond its inhabitants forever. #Quote by Monica Drake
United States quotes by Andrew Lo
#8. More and more investors may be coming into markets everywhere but that doesn't mean that the markets are really getting more and more efficient, even in the United States. It does mean that there is more access for savvy investors who watch the money flows. #Quote by Andrew Lo
United States quotes by Noam Chomsky
#9. So understood, anarchism is the inheritor of the classical liberal ideas that emerged from the Enlightenment. It is part of a broader range of libertarian socialist thought and action that ranges from the left anti-Bolshevik Marxism of Anton Pannekoek, Karl Korsch, Paul Mattick, and others, to the anarcho-syndicalism that crucially includes the practical achievements of revolutionary Spain in 1936, reaching further to worker-owned enterprises spreading today in the Rust Belt of the United States, in northern Mexico, in Egypt, and in many other countries, most extensively in the Basque country in Spain, also encompassing the many cooperative movements around the world and a good part of feminist and civil and human rights initiatives. #Quote by Noam Chomsky
United States quotes by Bernie Sanders
#10. I will do my best to transform our trade policy and take on these corporations who want to invest in low-income countries around the world rather than in the United States of America. #Quote by Bernie Sanders
United States quotes by Jonathan Odell
#11. The old woman crossed over to her. "When I speak of the people," she said barely above a whisper, her voice all weariness and grief, "I ain't just talking about the flesh, the blood. It's their voices. Their yes's and no's. That's what holds muscle to bone. The biggest thing the white man takes from us ain't our bodies. He takes our voices, too. He swallows up our yes's and no's like biscuits. But one day our yes's and no's will be so loud and strong they will lodge in his throat. He will have to spit them out to keep from choking. He will starve. There won't be nothing left of him except the shadows he casts on the deadest night. #Quote by Jonathan Odell
United States quotes by Argus Hamilton
#12. Barclays Bank in England purchased bankrupt Lehman Brothers Tuesday along with its Manhattan tower, saving nine thousand jobs. It's humiliating. The United States of America is 232 years old and we're having to go to mom for money. #Quote by Argus Hamilton
United States quotes by Paulo Coelho
#13. In the United States, I am a great success, but I am not a celebrity. #Quote by Paulo Coelho
United States quotes by Benjamin Franklin
#14. The United States Constitutional Convention, except for three or four persons, thought prayers unnecessary. #Quote by Benjamin Franklin
United States quotes by Erin Hunter
#15. United States HarperCollins Publishers Inc. 195 Broadway #Quote by Erin Hunter
United States quotes by Stephen Malkmus
#16. I'm not sure if you can blame everything on the American way of life, but the United States are big. So, if you have a lot of people there, the percentage of stupid people is bound to be higher. #Quote by Stephen Malkmus
United States quotes by James P. Hoffa
#17. Wage theft, worker rights and workplace discrimination should not be swept under the rug. The United States cannot have a functional economy where all the gains go to the corporate class while all the pain goes to regular workers. #Quote by James P. Hoffa
United States quotes by Jane Smiley
#18. Ignorance and bloodlust have a long tradition in the United States, especially in the red states. #Quote by Jane Smiley
United States quotes by Robert O. Becker
#19. GWEN is a superb system, in combination with cyclotron resonance, for producing behavioural alterations in the civilian population. The average strength of the steady geomagnetic field varies from place to place across the United States. Therefore, if one wished to resonate a specific ion in living things in a specific locality, one would require a specific frequency for that location. The spacing of GWEN transmitters 200 miles apart across the United States would allow such specific frequencies to be 'tailored' to the geomagnetic-field strength in each GWEN area. #Quote by Robert O. Becker
United States quotes by Jay Leno
#20. President Bush announced a major new plan for the United States to put a man on the moon, which would be a really big story if this were 1962. Bush said he didn't remember anything about the 60's - I guess he wasn't lying. #Quote by Jay Leno
United States quotes by Grover Norquist
#21. People are an asset, not a liability. The United States is the most immigrant-friendly nation in the world and the richest country in the world. This is not a coincidence. Those voices that would make us less immigrant-friendly would make us less successful, less prosperous and certainly less American. #Quote by Grover Norquist
United States quotes by Barack Obama
#22. By the end of this decade, a majority of our Navy and Air Force fleets will be based out of the Pacific, because the United States is and always will be a Pacific power. #Quote by Barack Obama
United States quotes by Alexandra Kerry
#23. In 2004, I joined my father, John Kerry, on the trail in his bid for the United States presidency. #Quote by Alexandra Kerry
United States quotes by Candice Millard
#24. Garfield's shooting had also revealed to the American people how vulnerable they were. In the little more than a century since its inception, the United States had become a powerful and respected country. Yet Americans suddenly realized that they still had no real control over their own fate. Not only could they not prevent a tragedy of such magnitude, they couldn't even anticipate it. The course of their lives could be changed in an instant, by a man who did not even understand what he had done. #Quote by Candice Millard
United States quotes by Noam Chomsky
#25. It's intellectual freedom when a journalist can understand that 2 + 2 = 4; that's what Orwell was writing about in 1984. Everybody here applauds that book, but nobody is willing to think about what it means. What Winston Smith [the main character] was saying is, if we can still understand that 2 + 2 = 4, they haven't taken everything away. Okay? Well, in the United States, people can't even understand that 2 + 2 = 4. #Quote by Noam Chomsky
United States quotes by Vandana Shiva
#26. Nobody defines it as something women shouldn't be doing. In a way, there are more mathematicians, more doctors, more scientists in India than there are in this country. We even had a woman head of state, and that's something the United States has yet to catch up with. #Quote by Vandana Shiva
United States quotes by Friedrich August Von Hayek
#27. In the United States, where it has become almost impossible to use "liberal" in the sense in which I have used it, the term "libertarian" has been used instead. It may be the answer; but for my part I find it singularly unattractive. For my taste it carries too much the flavor of a manufactured term and of a substitute. What I should want is a word which describes the party of life, the party that favors free growth and spontaneous evolution. But I have racked my brain unsuccessfully to find a descriptive term which commends itself. #Quote by Friedrich August Von Hayek
United States quotes by Pete Sessions
#28. The United States can no longer rely upon foreign nations such as China to bail us out of our economic irresponsibility. We must live within our means and implement creative, free-market solutions to put Americans back in jobs and to create economic opportunities. #Quote by Pete Sessions
United States quotes by Matt Taibbi
#29. Comparing your family budget to the sovereign debt of the United States is a little like comparing two kindergartners tossing a paper airplane to the Apollo 11 mission. #Quote by Matt Taibbi
United States quotes by Thomas Piketty
#30. If the twenty-first century turns out to be a time of low (demographic and economic) growth and high return on capital (in a context of heightened international competition for capital resources), or at any rate in countries where these conditions hold true, inheritance will therefore probably again be as important as it was in the nineteenth century. An evolution in this direction is already apparent in France and a number of other European countries, where growth has already slowed considerably in recent decades. For the moment it is less prominent in the United States, essentially because demographic growth there is higher than in Europe. But if growth ultimately slows more or less everywhere in the coming century, as the median demographic forecasts by the United Nations (corroborated by other economic forecasts) suggest it will, then inheritance will probably take on increased importance throughout the world. #Quote by Thomas Piketty
United States quotes by Neal Stephenson
#31. Organizers had been able to find interpreters for. First up on the dais was Mary Bulinski, the United States secretary of the interior, an inveterate hiker and climber, spry at sixty. By training she was a wildlife #Quote by Neal Stephenson
United States quotes by Stephanie Coontz
#32. High male earnings have also become less important to women. A 2001 poll in the United States found that 80 percent of women in their twenties believed that having a husband who can talk about his feelings was more important than having one who makes a good living.11 #Quote by Stephanie Coontz
United States quotes by Robert A. Heinlein
#33. But there seems to have been an actual decline in rational thinking. The United States had become a place where entertainers and professional athletes were mistaken for people of importance. They were idolized and treated as leaders; their opinions were sought on everything and they took themselves just as seriously - after all, if an athlete is paid a million or more a year, he knows he is important … so his opinions of foreign affairs and domestic policies must be important, too, even though he proves himself to be both ignorant and subliterate every time he opens his mouth. (Most of his fans were just as ignorant and unlettered; the disease was spreading.) #Quote by Robert A. Heinlein
United States quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#34. I am not fully informed of the practices at Harvard, but there is one from which we shall certainly vary, although it has been copied, I believe, by nearly every college and academy in the United States. That is, the holding the students all to one prescribed course of reading, and disallowing exclusive application to those branches only which are to qualify them for the particular vocations to which they are destined. We shall, on the contrary, allow them uncontrolled choice in the lectures they shall choose to attend, and require elementary qualification only, and sufficient age. #Quote by Thomas Jefferson
United States quotes by Mark Shields
#35. The economy of the United States gross domestic product doubled from 1996 to 2015, doubled, more than, $8.8 trillion to $17.1 trillion. And the median household income went down. #Quote by Mark Shields
United States quotes by Marquis De Lafayette
#36. Whatever may be my feelings of personal gratitude to the Navy of the United States, I feel myself under still greater obligations to them for the honor they have done to the American name in every part of the globe. #Quote by Marquis De Lafayette
United States quotes by John Ratzenberger
#37. To them, the real United States is just flyover country. #Quote by John Ratzenberger
United States quotes by Leonard Boswell
#38. As the 29th state to join the United States of America, it is our turn to show the nation what represents Iowa. Our commitment to quality education, hard work, and small-town values are all represented in the Iowa quarter. #Quote by Leonard Boswell
United States quotes by Robert M. Gates
#39. I've spent my entire adult life with the United States as a superpower and one that had no compunction about spending what it took to sustain that position. And it didn't have to look over its shoulder because our economy was so strong. #Quote by Robert M. Gates
United States quotes by Franklin Pierce
#40. READILY and, I trust, feelingly acknowledge the duty incumbent on us all ... to provide for those who, in the mysterious order of Providence, are subject to want and to disease of body or mind; but I cannot find any authority in the Constitution for making the Federal Government the great almoner of public charity throughout the United States ... #Quote by Franklin Pierce
United States quotes by Jamais Cascio
#41. Much as Cold War nuclear strategists could argue about winning a nuclear war by having more survivors, advocates of a Global Warming War might see the United States, Western Europe, or Russia as better able to ride out climate disruption and manipulation than, say, China or the countries of the Middle East. #Quote by Jamais Cascio
United States quotes by Maureen O'Hara
#42. John Wayne is not just an actor, and a very fine actor - John Wayne is the United States of America. #Quote by Maureen O'Hara
United States quotes by Chauncey Depew
#43. There have been many Presidents of the United States and the roll will be indefinitely extended. We have had a number of brilliant soldiers, but only one great general. #Quote by Chauncey Depew
United States quotes by Victor Davis Hanson
#44. The United States military is now evolving geometrically as it gains experience from near-constant fighting and grafts new technology daily. Indeed, it seems to be doubling, tripling, and even quadrupling its lethality every few years. And the result is that we are outdistancing not merely the capabilities of our enemies but our allies as well - many of whom who have not fought in decades - at such a dizzying pace that our sheer destructive power makes it hard to work with others in joint operations. #Quote by Victor Davis Hanson
United States quotes by Josh Mandel
#45. We need to do a top/bottom review of the federal government and for every agency administration bureaucracy that is not called for in the United States Constitution, we have to really ask the question what is its purpose, how many people work there, how much does it cost the taxpayers and what is the value to our society. #Quote by Josh Mandel
United States quotes by Jim Wallis
#46. At times I think the truest image of God today is a black inner-city grandmother in the United States or a mother of the disappeared in Argentina or the women who wake up early to make tortillas in refugee camps. They all weep for their children, and in their compassionate tears arises the political action that changes the world. The mothers show us that it is the experience of touching the pain of others that is the key to change. #Quote by Jim Wallis
United States quotes by Trey Gowdy
#47. I am not surprised that the President of the United States called this a phony scandal. I'm not surprised that Secretary Clinton asked, "What difference does it make?" I'm not even surprised that Jay Carney said that Benghazi happened 'a long time ago.' I'm just surprised at how many people bought it. #Quote by Trey Gowdy
United States quotes by Edward Said
#48. It is very easy to make wild generalizations about Islam. All you have to do is read almost any issue of The New Republic and you'll see there the radical evil that's associated with Islam, the Arabs as having a depraved culture, and so forth. These are impossible generalizations to make in the United States about any other religious or ethnic group. #Quote by Edward Said
United States quotes by Ben Carson
#49. made more than a century ago? Certain individuals feel that the United States cannot be forgiven for slavery until reparations are made to the descendants of slaves. This belief goes back to Mosaic laws requiring anyone who caused harm to someone else to make reparations to that individual or to the family if the #Quote by Ben Carson
United States quotes by Melinda Gates
#50. I'm constantly saying to myself, 'I'm lucky I was born in the United States.' #Quote by Melinda Gates
United States quotes by Hank Bracker
#51. Glenn Hammond Curtiss was a bicycle enthusiast before he started building motorcycles. Although he only attended grammar school to the 8th grade, his interests motivated him to move on to greater things. In 1904, as a self-taught engineer, he began to manufacture engines for airships. During this time, Curtiss became known for having won a number of international air races and for making the first long-distance flight in the United States. On September 30, 1907, Curtiss was invited to join a non-profit pioneering research program named the "Aerial Experimental Association," founded under the leadership of Dr. Alexander Graham Bell, to develop flying machines. The organization was established having a fixed time period, which ended in March of 1909. During this time, the members produced several different aircraft in a cooperative, rather than a competitive, spirit. #Quote by Hank Bracker
United States quotes by Paul Robeson
#52. If the United States and the United Nations truly want peace and security let them fulfill the hopes of the common people everywhere - let them work together to accomplish on a worldwide scale, precisely the kind of democratic association of free people which characterizes the Soviet Union today. #Quote by Paul Robeson
United States quotes by James F. Simon
#53. The future chief justice of the United States told the delegates that an independent federal judiciary was a necessary bulwark against an overreaching Congress. If Congress were to exceed its powers, said Marshall, it would be the duty of the judiciary to declare the action void. Marshall #Quote by James F. Simon
United States quotes by Nancy Pelosi
#54. The American people are very, very ready for a woman president. They're far ahead of the politicians. I always thought it would be much easier to elect a woman president of the United States than Speaker of the House, because the people are far ahead, as I say, of the electeds, on the subject of a woman being president. #Quote by Nancy Pelosi
United States quotes by Anonymous
#55. The Catholic Church also opposes any effort to make it easier to deport children; last week, the archbishop of Chicago, Cardinal Francis E. George, said he had offered facilities in his diocese to house some of the children, and on Monday, bishops in Dallas and Fort Worth called for lawyers to volunteer to represent the children at immigration proceedings. "We have to put our money where our mouth is in this country," said Kevin Appleby, the director of migration policy for the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. "We tell other countries to protect human rights and accept refugees, but when we get a crisis on our border, we don't know how to respond." Republicans have rejected calls by Democrats for $2.7 billion in funds to respond to the crisis, demanding changes in immigration law to make it easier to send children back to Central America. And while President Obama says he is open to some changes, many Democrats have opposed them, and Congress is now deadlocked. #Quote by Anonymous
United States quotes by Hideki Tojo
#56. At the Imperial Conference on December 1, it was decided to make war against England and the United States. #Quote by Hideki Tojo
United States quotes by Herman Cain
#57. Most of the ancestors that I can trace were born here in the United States of America. And then it goes back to slavery. And I'm sure my ancestors go all the way back to Africa, but I feel more of an affinity for America than I do for Africa. I'm a black man in America. #Quote by Herman Cain
United States quotes by Robert Dallek
#58. The 1890s was an intensely patriotic decade for Americans. It was a time of neo-imperialism, when the European powers and the United States were establishing their flags around the globe. #Quote by Robert Dallek
United States quotes by Sheri Fink
#59. In the United States, Western Europe and Japan, there is widespread access to dialysis, most of it publicly funded. But in many countries, the majority of patients who need dialysis die without it. #Quote by Sheri Fink
United States quotes by Evel Knievel
#60. I foresee the Chinese ruling the world. What are you going to do to stop it? No president of the United States will ever have enough power to stop the Chinese when they want to take over the world. #Quote by Evel Knievel
United States quotes by Cynthia McKinney
#61. The situation in the United States is becoming more dire for average ordinary Americans and the last thing we need to do is to spend money on death, destruction and war. #Quote by Cynthia McKinney
United States quotes by Arthur C. Brooks
#62. What the United States needs is for a unifying, positive, aspirational force to sweep through our national community. American conservatives have a generational opportunity to become precisely this kind of force. We have a shot, if we take it, to help every single American build a better life, and unite our nation in the process. #Quote by Arthur C. Brooks
United States quotes by Tom Ridge
#63. Credible reporting indicates that Al Qaeda is moving forward with its plans to carry out a large-scale attack in the United States in an effort to disrupt our democratic process ... #Quote by Tom Ridge
United States quotes by Seymour Martin Lipset
#64. Paradoxical as it may seem, collective bargaining is not losing ground in the United States because unions are less attractive, but unions are less attractive because collective bargaining is losing ground. #Quote by Seymour Martin Lipset
United States quotes by Herbert Hoover
#65. In the larger view the major forces of the depression now lie outside of the United States, and our recuperation has been retarded by the unwarranted degree of fear and apprehension created by these outside forces. #Quote by Herbert Hoover
United States quotes by Tim Weiner
#66. The spectacle of the United States Army chasing the unarmed veterans, their wives, and their children out of the shadow of the Capitol was a scene of American urban combat without parallel since the Civil War. #Quote by Tim Weiner
United States quotes by Don King
#67. Who would you vote most likely to succeed? Bob Arum - White, Jewish, a graduate of Harvard, a Kennady Raider, United States Attorney. Don King - black, poor, out of the hard core getto of Cleveland, Ohio, numbers runner, a little confectionary dealer, ex-convict. Now who would you vote to succeed? It would be hands down ... Yet in this great land called America, I have out performed, outachieved, been more recognizable, did more, broke more records, and had more of a phenominal career, where Arum can't tie my shoe string. You understand? #Quote by Don King
United States quotes by Argus Hamilton
#68. Chinese president Jiang Zemin met with former Bill Clinton in Hong Kong Wednesday. What a contrast. One is a ruthless communist who gains popularity by damaging the United States, while the other guy runs China. #Quote by Argus Hamilton
United States quotes by Javier Bardem
#69. This great imperialistic world called the United States has made us believe that an Oscar is the most important thing in the world for an actor. But if you think about it for five minutes you realise it can't be. #Quote by Javier Bardem
United States quotes by Anna Howard Shaw
#70. I would rather be known as an advocate of equal suffrage than to speak every night on the best-paying platforms in the United States and ignore it. #Quote by Anna Howard Shaw
United States quotes by Ted Cruz
#71. Any country that makes U.S. service members get on their knees will feel the full force and fury of the United States of America. #Quote by Ted Cruz
United States quotes by Dave Barry
#72. All other nations are drinking Ray Charles beer and we are drinking Barry Manilow. #Quote by Dave Barry
United States quotes by Sebastian Thrun
#73. Access to high-quality education is way too limited. The United States has the world's most admirable higher education system, and yet it is very restrictive. It's so hard to get into. I never got into it as a student. #Quote by Sebastian Thrun
United States quotes by Eric Schlosser
#74. During the same week that Kennedy appealed for an end to the arms race at the United Nations, he met with a handful of military advisers at the White House to discuss launching a surprise attack on the Soviet Union. General Thomas Power encouraged him to do it. According to notes of the meeting, held on September 20, Power warned that the United States now faced the greatest danger, ever, of a Soviet nuclear attack. #Quote by Eric Schlosser
United States quotes by Na

United States quotes by Firoozeh Dumas
#76. Ever since we had arrived in the United States, my classmates kept asking me about magic carpets.
- They don't exist-I always said. I was wrong. Magic carpets do exist. But they are called library cards. #Quote by Firoozeh Dumas
United States quotes by James A. Garfield
#77. There can be no permanent disfranchised peasantry in the United States. #Quote by James A. Garfield
United States quotes by Steven Pinker
#78. The enmeshing of polysemy with grammar is also visible in one of the ways that Americans and Britons are divided by their common language. When a product gives its name to an employer, the name is singular in the United States (The Globe is expanding its comics section) but plural in the United Kingdom (The Guardian are giving you the chance to win books). #Quote by Steven Pinker
United States quotes by Frank Bruni
#79. You can make a successful run for political office in this country without an especially thick résumé, any exceptional talent for expressing yourself, a noteworthy education or, for that matter, a basic grasp of science.

But you better have religion. You better be ready to profess your faith in and fealty to God - the Judeo-Christian one, of course. And you better be convincing. A dust-up last week in the 2014 race for a United States Senate seat from Arkansas provided a sad reminder of this, showing once again that our ballyhooed separation of church and state is less canyon than itty-bitty crack. #Quote by Frank Bruni
United States quotes by Cory Booker
#80. My grandmother from Iowa, she is dancing in Heaven at the prospect that the next president of the United States is going to be Hillary Rodham Clinton. #Quote by Cory Booker
United States quotes by Ben Shapiro
#81. As of September 2012, 168 out of the 602 released Guantanamo Bay detainees are suspected of returning to terrorism. So, is this a winning scenario for the United States? Of course not. #Quote by Ben Shapiro
United States quotes by Jimmy Carter
#82. We simply must have faith in each other, faith in our ability to govern ourselves, and faith in the future of this Nation. Restoring that faith and that confidence to America is now the most important task we face. #Quote by Jimmy Carter
United States quotes by Joel Klein
#83. We [the United States] are not every other country. And models that work elsewhere may not have the same impact here. #Quote by Joel Klein
United States quotes by David Beckham
#84. I would walk back from the United States to play for England again. #Quote by David Beckham
United States quotes by Hunter S. Thompson
#85. But I have a flash of Good News from the Police Atrocity front, which is heating up in Denver. ... Stand back! Good News is rare in the Criminal Justice System, but every once in a while you find it, and this is one of those times. To wit: the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers has formally entered the Appeals trial of young Lisl Auman - the girl who remains locked up in a cell at the Colorado State Prison for the Rest of Her Life with No Possibility of Parole for a bogus crime she was never even Accused of committing. She is a living victim of a cold-blooded political trial that will cast a long shadow on Denver for many years to come. Lisl is the only person ever convicted in the United States for Felony Murder who was in police custody when the crime happened. #Quote by Hunter S. Thompson
United States quotes by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
#86. I realized that I was African when I came to the United States. Whenever Africa came up in my college classes, everyone turned to me. It didn't matter whether the subject was Namibia or Egypt; I was expected to know, to explain. #Quote by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
United States quotes by Tulsi Gabbard
#87. It makes no sense for us to consider going back there and getting involved in what truly is a religious civil war. What real difference would (air strikes) make on the ground? And secondly, is it in the best interests of the United States to do that? I would say that those questions are not being answered in a compelling way that would cause me to support that. #Quote by Tulsi Gabbard
United States quotes by Che Guevara
#88. If they attack, we shall fight to the end. If the rockets had remained, we would have used them all and directed them against the very heart of the United States, including New York, in our defense against aggression. But we haven't got them, so we shall fight with what we've got. #Quote by Che Guevara
United States quotes by Ryan Potter
#89. If the United States is the melting pot of the world, you need entertainment - you need visuals that represent that. #Quote by Ryan Potter
United States quotes by Eugene Cernan
#90. After Apollo 17, America stopped looking towards the next horizon. The United States had become a space-faring nation, but threw it away. We have sacrificed space exploration for space exploitation, which is interesting but scarcely visionary. #Quote by Eugene Cernan
United States quotes by Anonymous
#91. Pit bulls languish in kennels and shelters across the United States because they were originally conditioned by their owners to be "tough," but then they became too much for their owners to handle. #Quote by Anonymous
United States quotes by Michael Morell
#92. One great lesson from history we need to keep on re-learning. It is that sometimes your adversaries tell you exactly what they're going to do. How many times did [Osama] bin Laden say prior to 9/11 that he was coming after the U.S.? ISIS made clear that when they established their caliphate in Iraq and Syria, they were coming after the United States too. #Quote by Michael Morell
United States quotes by Desmond Tutu
#93. All the United States, it is a society that is split like to the bottom, that had very poor people in the country that is one of the wealthiest countries. #Quote by Desmond Tutu
United States quotes by Will Rogers
#94. The United States never lost a war or won a conference. #Quote by Will Rogers
United States quotes by James Morcan
#95. Democrats and Republicans were essentially the same party with different faces and that was why, no matter how many promises each leader made, significant change rarely transpired. #Quote by James Morcan
United States quotes by Glenn Beck
#96. You tell me why the government needs this information on every Verizon customer but they don't need to know who's coming across our border? They don't need to know where the 15,000 foreign nationals are that skipped out on their visa, just didn't show up to school but they're here in the United States. You tell me why they need my grandmother's phone records but they don't need to know where the Saudi nationals are. Why they don't need - why they need to know who's calling who inside the United States of America. They need to know who's calling who, how long the phone conversations were lasting, the GPS locators for all of the cellphones, when those phones, when that phone call was made. Why do they need all of that for domestic terror but they can't seem to get it right with the Boston bombers? They don't know where that guy was. You tell me why they need all of this information. Why do you need to go for the AP? You don't need to go for the AP and target the reporters. #Quote by Glenn Beck
United States quotes by Paul Broun
#97. If passed by the U.N. and ratified by the U.S. Senate, the U.N. Small Arms Treaty would almost certainly force the United States to ... create an international gun registry, setting the stage for full-scale gun confiscation. #Quote by Paul Broun
United States quotes by Ramsey Clark
#98. Impeachment is the direct constitutional means for removing a President, Vice President or other civil officers of the United States who has acted or threatened acts that are serious offenses against the Constitution, its system of government, or the rule of law, or that are conventional crimes of such a serious nature that they would injure the Presidency if there was no removal. #Quote by Ramsey Clark

United States quotes by Barbara W. Tuchman
#101. forces on taking sugar islands in the West Indies or besieging Gibraltar or collecting an assault force for the invasion of Britain, because the place to defeat the English was in America. Pleas from the Continental Congress to the same purpose were having effect. From George Washington himself came a letter to La Luzerne, French Minister to the United States, stressing the need of naval superiority and asking for a French fleet to come to America. As forerunner, seven ships of the line under Admiral de Ternay, d'Estaing's successor, came into Newport in July, 1780, bringing a man and a small land army #Quote by Barbara W. Tuchman

United States quotes by Harold Bloom
#105. There are indeed millions of Christians in the United States, but most Americans who think that they are Christians truly are something else, intensely religious but devout in the American Religion, a faith that is old among us, and that comes in many guises and disguises, and that overdetermines much of our national life. #Quote by Harold Bloom

United States quotes by Al Gore
#107. The United States has an absolute, uncompromising commitment to Israel's security and an absolute conviction that Israel alone must decide the steps necessary to ensure that security. That is Israel's prerogative. We accept that. We endorse that. Whatever Israel decides cannot, will not, will never, not ever, alter our fundamental commitment to her security. #Quote by Al Gore

United States quotes by Jeff Schweitzer
#109. That we need help is easy to see every time we walk down the street.
The experts confirm what the obscured view in front of us tells us.
They estimate that 64% of adults in the United States are obese and
that this percentage is growing. Even our children are being affected,
as nearly every one in three American children under the age of 18
is overweight. #Quote by Jeff Schweitzer
United States quotes by Ken Salazar
#110. The way Americans most understand the history of Latinos in this country, a lot of it is being told now through the lens of what's happening with the immigration debate. While that's an important debate that has security and moral implications, in my view, there's also a huge history of Latinos in the United States that's never been told. #Quote by Ken Salazar
United States quotes by Patricia MacLachlan
#111. Melinda Pratt rides city bus number twelve to her cello lesson, wearing her mother's jean jacket and only one sock. Hallo, world, says Minna. Minna often addresses the world, sometimes silently, sometimes out loud. Bus number twelve is her favorite place for watching, inside and out. The bus passes cars and bicycles and people walking dogs. It passes store windows, and every so often Minna sees her face reflection, two dark eyes in a face as pale as a winter dawn. There are fourteen people on the bus today. Minna stands up to count them. She likes to count people, telephone poles, hats, umbrellas, and, lately, earrings. One girl, sitting directly in front of Minna, has seven earrings, five in one ear. She has wisps of dyed green hair that lie like forsythia buds against her neck.

There are, Minna knows, a king, a past president of the United States, and a beauty queen on the bus. Minna can tell by looking. The king yawns and scratches his ear with his little finger. Scratches, not picks. The beauty queen sleeps, her mouth open, her hair the color of tomatoes not yet ripe. The past preside of the United States reads Teen Love and Body Builder's Annual.

Next to Minna, leaning against the seat, is her cello in its zippered canvas case. Next to her cello is her younger brother, McGrew, who is humming. McGrew always hums. Sometimes he hums sentences, though most often it comes out like singing. McGrew's teachers do not enjoy McGrew answering questions in hu #Quote by Patricia MacLachlan

United States quotes by Robert C. Solomon

United States quotes by Herb Ritts

United States quotes by Jiang Zemin
#116. Shocked to learn of the serious attacks against certain areas in New York City and Washington D.C. on September 11, which caused horrendous casualty, I wish to express, on behalf of the Chinese Government and people, our deepest sympathy and solicitude to you and, through you, to the Government and people of the United States. I wish also to extend our condolences to the families of the victims. The Chinese Government has consistently condemned and rejected all forms of terrorist violence. #Quote by Jiang Zemin
United States quotes by Jeremy Scahill
#117. The first drone strike outside of a declared war zone was conducted in 2002, yet it was not until May 2013 that the White House released a set of standards and procedures for conducting such strikes.3 Those guidelines offered little specificity, asserting that the United States would conduct a lethal strike outside an "area of active hostilities" only if a target represents a "continuing, imminent threat to U.S. persons," without providing any sense of the internal process used to determine whether a suspect should be killed without being indicted or tried.4 The implicit message on drone strikes from the Obama administration has been Trust, but don't verify.5 #Quote by Jeremy Scahill
United States quotes by Noam Chomsky
#118. Among the many symbols used to frighten and manipulate the populace of the democratic states, few have been more important than "terror" and "terrorism." These terms have generally been confined to the use of violence by individuals and marginal groups. Official violence, which is far more extensive in both scale and destructiveness, is placed in a different category altogether. This usage has nothing to do with justice, causal sequence, or numbers abused. Whatever the actual sequence of cause and effect, official violence is described as responsive or provoked ("retaliation," "protective reaction," etc.), not as the active and initiating source of abuse. Similarly, the massive long-term violence inherent in the oppressive social structures that U.S. power has supported or imposed is typically disregarded. The numbers tormented and killed by official violence-wholesale as opposed to retail terror-during recent decades have exceeded those of unofficial terrorists by a factor running into the thousands. But this is not "terror," [...] "security forces" only retaliate and engage in "police action."

These terminological devices serve important functions. They help to justify the far more extensive violence of (friendly) state authorities by interpreting them as "reactive" and they implicitly sanction the suppression of information on the methods and scale of official violence by removing it from the category of "terrorism." [...] Thus the language is well-designed for #Quote by Noam Chomsky
United States quotes by Timothy Noah

United States quotes by Shirin Neshat

United States quotes by Edward E. Baptist

United States quotes by Matt Taibbi
#123. The new America, instead, is fast becoming a vast ghetto in which all of us, conservatives and progressives, are being bled dry by a relatively tiny oligarchy of extremely clever financial criminals and their castrato henchmen in government, whose job is to be good actors on TV and put on a good show. #Quote by Matt Taibbi
United States quotes by Rebecca Solnit
#124. Violence is one way to silence people, to deny their voice and their credibility, to assert your right to control over their right to exist. About three women a day are murdered by spouses or ex-spouses in this country. It's one of the main causes of death for pregnant women in the United States. At #Quote by Rebecca Solnit

United States quotes by Jim Trelease
#127. Which Country Has the Best Readers? One of the most comprehensive international reading studies was conducted by Warwick Elley for the International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement (IEA) in 1990 and 1991. Involving thirty-two countries, it assessed 210,000 nine- and fourteen-year-olds.22 Of all those children, which ones read best? For nine-year-olds, the four top nations were: Finland (569), the United States (547), Sweden (539), and France (531). But the U.S. position dropped to a tie for eighth when fourteen-year-olds were evaluated. This demonstrates that American children begin reading at a level that is among the best in the world, but since reading is an accrued skill and U.S. children appear to do less of it as they grow older, their scores decline when compared with countries where children read more as they mature. #Quote by Jim Trelease
United States quotes by Harri Holkeri

United States quotes by Hank Bracker
#131. There was enough intimidation, witness tampering and foul play to go around. Many books have been published about this subject, witnesses have died, some violently, under very suspicious conditions. Over the years, evidence has been tampered with, and fearing for their lives, most other people have decided to clam up and withdraw into the shadows. Personally I still retain a list of convenient deaths after the Kennedy Assassination that happened rounding the Dealey Plaza in Dallas on November 22, 1963!
In February 1996, Robert Kennedy, Jr. and his brother, Michael, flew to Havana for a meeting with Fidel Castro. As a gesture of goodwill, they brought with them a file of formerly top-secret U.S. documents. These documents were specifically about the Kennedy administration's attempt to find a peaceful settlement with Cuba. Castro thanked them for the file and shared the impression that it was President Kennedy's desire to normalize relations between the United States and Cuba. "It's unfortunate," Castro said, "that things happened as they did." Castro also indicated that normalization might have been possible, had it not been for President Kennedy's assassination in 1963.
Although numerous attempts at normalization between the two countries have been attempted since this meeting, powerful anti-Castro factions continued to thwart all of these efforts. Perhaps we are now witnessing the time when ways will be found to improve the relations between the United States and #Quote by Hank Bracker

United States quotes by Edward Snowden
#134. The way the United States intelligence community operates is it doesn't limit itself to the protection of the homeland. It doesn't limit itself to countering terrorist threats, countering nuclear proliferation. It's also used for economic espionage, for political spying to gain some knowledge of what other countries are doing. #Quote by Edward Snowden
United States quotes by Shirley Chisholm
#135. ... My present attitude toward politics as it is practiced in the United States: it is a beautiful fraud that has been imposed on the people for years, whose practitioners exchange gilded promises for the most valuable thing their victims own, their votes. And who benefits most? The lawyers. (Chapter 4) #Quote by Shirley Chisholm

United States quotes by John F. Kennedy
#141. In those countries where income taxes are lower than in the United States, the ability to defer the payment of U.S. tax by retaining income in the subsidiary companies provides a tax advantage for companies operating through overseas subsidiaries that is not available to companies operating solely in the United States. Many American investors properly made use of this deferral in the conduct of their foreign investment. #Quote by John F. Kennedy

United States quotes by Richard Hofstadter
#144. All this is the more maddening, as Edward Shils has pointed out, in a populistic culture which has always set a premium on government by the common man and through the common judgement and which believes deeply in the sacred character of publicity. Here the politician expresses what a large part of the public feels. The citizen cannot cease to need or to be at the mercy of experts, but he can achieve a kind of revenge by ridiculing the wild-eyed professor, the irresponsible brain truster, or the mad scientist, and by applauding the politicians as the pursue the subversive teacher, the suspect scientist, or the allegedly treacherous foreign-policy adviser. There has always been in our national experience a type of mind which elevates hatred to a kind of creed; for this mind, group hatreds take a place in politics similar to the class struggle in some other modern societies. Filled with obscure and ill-directed grievances and frustrations, with elaborate hallucinations about secrets and conspiracies, groups of malcontents have found scapegoats at various times in Masons or abolitionists, Catholics, Mormons, or Jews, Negroes, or immigrants, the liquor interests or the international bankers. In the succession of scapegoats chosen by the followers of this tradition of Know-Nothingism, the intelligentsia have at last in our time found a place. #Quote by Richard Hofstadter
United States quotes by Jacob G. Hornberger

There are few better places to apply that adage than the drug war. It's time to end it. It's time to restore peace and harmony to Latin America and the United States. It's time to end the failed war on drugs. It's time to legalize drugs. #Quote by Jacob G. Hornberger
United States quotes by Hillary Rodham Clinton

United States quotes by Alexander Berkman
#154. I have said that there is no "average" American. That is due to the circumstance that the people of the United States differ from each as widely as the parts they live in. The New Yorker is a different specimen of man from the Westerner; the latter is entirely different again from the people of Texas. The Middle West, such States for instance as Kansas, Colorado, Nebraska or Iowa, have an entirely different psychology from that of Florida or Lower California. Their habits of life, their modes of thought, even their language is different. Still further, it must also be considered that millions of foreigners and descendants of foreign born people live in the United States and are part of the entire population that is known as "American". Add to this more than 10 million negroes, not to mention the score of different Indian (red-skin) tribes, who are the real, indigenous Americans. In this conglomeration of races it is impossible to speak of the "average" American, nor can any adequate estimate of American psychology be made on such a basis. #Quote by Alexander Berkman
United States quotes by Alexander Hamilton
#155. The President of the United States would be liable to be impeached, tried, and upon conviction of treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors, removed from office; and would afterwards be liable to prosecution and punishment in the ordinary course of law. The person of the King of Great Britain is sacred and inviolable: There is no constitutional tribunal to which he is amenable, no punishment to which he can be subjected without involving the crisis of a national revolution. #Quote by Alexander Hamilton
United States quotes by Sami Al-Arian

United States quotes by Steve Wynn

United States quotes by Harry S. Truman
#158. It will be just as easy for nations to get along in a republic of the world as it is for you to get along in the republic of the United States. Now when Kansas and Colorado have a quarrel over the water in the Arkansas river they don't call out the national guard in each state and go to war over it. They bring suit in the Supreme Court of the United States and abide by the decision. There isn't a reason in the world why we can't do that internationally. #Quote by Harry S. Truman

United States quotes by Sarah Smarsh
#160. ...the older I get, the less I think what side of a divide you're born on has much to do with who or what you are. "City" and "country" is a dichotomy that predates the United States by centuries. What's particular about Americans is the way we move, along highways across big stretches of earth, the place we think will do right by us, the place we hope we might belong. #Quote by Sarah Smarsh
United States quotes by Katie Couric

They can't even get a phone call returned, Bill. The Dutch - they are known, and the Norwegians - they are known for dikes and for cleaning up water and for dealing with spills. They offered to help and yet, no, they too, with the proverbial, can't even get a phone call back. #Quote by Sarah Palin

United States quotes by Austin Grossman
#167. The United States of America is logically the least magical place in the world. Planned by committee, not even a country, just a legal umbrella for fifty associated provinces, an elaborate polling system for creating other larger and more permanent committees. No mysteries; no demons; one God at the most. Sure, it had its own folklore and tall tales, but it wasn't the same. Its rulers weren't descended from men and women who spoke with birds and rode dragons. Johnny Appleseed and Paul Bunyan were hayseeds, folksy also-rans compared to the madness in the ancient royal blood going back to the Druids, to Byzantium, to Mithraic cults. #Quote by Austin Grossman

United States quotes by Joseph Telushkin
#171. The Rebbe now spoke in a manner that anticipated the work that was later to be done by the shluchim whom he dispatched throughout the United States and the world: "One must go to a place where nothing is known of Godliness, nothing is known of Judaism, nothing is even known of the Hebrew alphabet, and while there, put one's own self aside and ensure that the other calls out to God! . . . Indeed, if one wants to ensure his own connection to God, he must make sure that the other person not only becomes familiar with but actually calls out to God!" It was not enough, it was never enough, to simply practice Judaism by oneself or in an already religiously observant community; one has to bring others to embrace God as well #Quote by Joseph Telushkin
United States quotes by George F. Kennan
#172. It is obviously easier, for the short run, to draw cheap labor from adjacent pools of poverty ... than to find it among one's own people. And to the millions of such prospective immigrants from poverty to prosperity, there is, rightly or wrongly, no place that looks more attractive than the United States. Given its head, and subject to no restrictions, this pressure will find its termination only when the levels of overpopulation and poverty in the United States are equal to those of the countries from which these people are now so anxious to escape. #Quote by George F. Kennan

United States quotes by Bernie Sanders
#175. Now all of the ideas that I'm talking about, they are not radical ideas. Making public colleges and universities tuition free, that exists in countries all over the world, used to exist in the United States. Rebuilding our crumbling infrastructure, and creating 13 million jobs by doing away with tax loopholes that large corporations now enjoy by putting their money into the Cayman Islands and other tax havens. That is not a radical idea. #Quote by Bernie Sanders
United States quotes by Dinesh D'Souza
#176. What does the doctrine of American exceptionalism empower the United States to do? Nothing more than to act better than traditional empires - committed to looting and conquest - have done. So that's American exceptionalism: an exceptionalism based on noble ideas, ideas that it holds itself to even when it falls short of them. #Quote by Dinesh D'Souza
United States quotes by Milton Friedman

A good, generous prayer it was, and went into details: it pleaded for the church, and the little children of the church; for the other churches of the village; for the village itself; for the county; for the State; for the State officers; for the United States; for the churches of the United States; for Congress; for the President; for the officers of the Government; for poor sailors, tossed by stormy seas; for the oppressed millions groaning under the heel of European monarchies and Oriental despotisms; for such as have the light and the good tidings, and yet have not eyes to see nor ears to hear withal; for the heathen in the far islands of the sea; and closed with a supplication that the words he was about to speak might find grace and favor, and be as seed sown in fertile ground, yielding in time a grateful harvest of good. Amen. #Quote by Mark Twain
United States quotes by Li Bingbing
#183. I'm happy to see the United States and China cooperating more and more with movies. The entertainment industry in China is developing very fast. I hope there can be a bridge for actors to work in both places. #Quote by Li Bingbing
United States quotes by Tony Snow
#184. The United States spends more money on African aid than any nation on earth. #Quote by Tony Snow
United States quotes by Robert Ballard
#185. Fifty percent of the United States of America is underneath the ocean. And we have better maps of Mars than those areas. #Quote by Robert Ballard
United States quotes by Marshall McLuhan
#186. America is the only country ever founded on the printed word. #Quote by Marshall McLuhan
United States quotes by Susan B. Anthony
#187. We ask justice, we ask equality, we ask that all the civil and political rights that belong to citizens of the United States, be guaranteed to us and our daughters forever. #Quote by Susan B. Anthony
United States quotes by Ajaypal Singh Banga
#188. The 2.5 billion adults [around the world] without access to financial services are disproportionately women and young people. There are at least 44 million unbanked or underbanked people in the United States, so clearly financial inclusion is needed in all markets. #Quote by Ajaypal Singh Banga
United States quotes by Noam Chomsky
#189. China is a great manufacturing center, but it's actually mostly an assembly plant. So it assembles parts and components, high technology that comes from the surrounding industrial - more advanced industrial centers - Japan, Taiwan, South Korea, Singapore, the United States, Europe - and it basically assembles them. #Quote by Noam Chomsky
United States quotes by John Henrik Clarke
#190. After the bombing of Pearl Harbor, December 7, 1941, the United States would enter, in a formal way, what had been up to that date strictly a European conflict. Marcus Garvey's prophecy about the European scramble to maintain dominance over the whole world was now a reality. #Quote by John Henrik Clarke
United States quotes by Evo Morales
#191. The U.S. should be equally responsible for diminishing the cocaine market within the United States as it is in fighting the drug elsewhere. #Quote by Evo Morales
United States quotes by Anand Gopal
#192. The toll from the two attacks: twenty-one pro-American leaders and their employees dead, twenty-six taken prisoner, and a few who could not be accounted for. Not one member of the Taliban or al-Qaeda was among the victims. Instead, in a single thirty-minute stretch the United States had managed to eradicate both of Khas Uruzgan's potential governments, the core of any future anti-Taliban leadership - stalwarts who had outlasted the Russian invasion, the civil war, and the Taliban years but would not survive their own allies. People in Khas Uruzgan felt what Americans might if, in a single night, masked gunmen had wiped out the entire city council, mayor's office, and police department of a small suburban town: shock, grief, and rage. #Quote by Anand Gopal
United States quotes by Sean Patrick Maloney
#193. The latest developments in Iraq are deeply troubling, but as the United States considers military and diplomatic responses to the actions of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) action, we should be clear that U.S. troops on the ground cannot go a million miles near a sectarian civil war-it's simply not an option. #Quote by Sean Patrick Maloney
United States quotes by Vladimir Putin
#194. The United States and Russian security services regularly exchange information. #Quote by Vladimir Putin
United States quotes by Donella H. Meadows
#195. Carter also was trying to deal with a flood of illegal immigrants from Mexico. He suggested that nothing could be done about that immigration as long as there was a great gap in opportunity and living standards between the United States and Mexico. Rather than spending money on border guards and barriers, he said, we should spend money helping to build the Mexican economy, and we should continue to do so until the immigration stopped. #Quote by Donella H. Meadows
United States quotes by Jerry Herron
#196. ...Americans didn't stick to cities, which makes us different from the people in other industrialized countries. We no sooner arrived in town, turning those towns into great mid-century metropolises, than we decided to take off for the green world beyond, so that by the 1970 Census, we had become the first suburban nation in the history of the world. And Detroit led the way, with a population curve up and down just like everywhere else, but with its urban decline a lot steeper over the past sixty years - so typical a place that it only looks like an exception. #Quote by Jerry Herron
United States quotes by Troy King
#197. I'm using the death penalty to keep Alabama family safe from the most violent criminals, why? It's because it works. Recent studies have said that every time an execution is carried out in the United States, up to 75 murders are prevented the next year. #Quote by Troy King
United States quotes by Noam Chomsky
#198. Greece has been, in many ways, a partially dysfunctional society. For example, the wealthy barely pay taxes ... to an extent, that's true elsewhere, including the United States, but it's been pretty extreme in Greece. #Quote by Noam Chomsky
United States quotes by Timothy Snyder
#199. After Tony [Judt]'s death, in August 2010, I toured to discuss the book we had written together, which he had entitle 'Thinking the Twentieth Century.' I realized as I traveled around the United States that its subject had been forgotten all too well. In hotel rooms, I watched Russian television toy with the traumatic American history of race, suggesting that Barack Obama had been born in Africa. It struck me as odd that the American entertainer Donald Trump picked up the theme not long thereafter. #Quote by Timothy Snyder
United States quotes by Stedman Graham
#200. Understand who you are, so that you can be the same, whether you're talking to a homeless person or the president of the United States. You're the same person. #Quote by Stedman Graham
United States quotes by Harold Holzer
#201. And Indiana's John Defrees expressed his belief that the inclusion of Winfield Scott of Virginia, Alexander Stephens of Georgia, and Edward Bates of Missouri "would do much to bring about a re-action among the people of all the Southern States except S. Carolina, which is insane beyond hope of cure."134 (Stephens himself later branded as "totally groundless" the "rumor" that he had ever discussed a cabinet appointment with the president-elect. #Quote by Harold Holzer
United States quotes by Garrison Keillor
#202. Minnesota is a state of public-spirited and polite people, where you can get a good cappucino and eat Thai food and find any book you want and yet live on a quiet tree-lined street with a backyard and send your kids to public school. When a state this good hits the jackpot, it can only be an inspiration to everybody. #Quote by Garrison Keillor
United States quotes by Istvan Aranyosi
#203. Self-consciousness is, from a naturalistic point of view (in this case neurobiological), not more than a degree of sophistication of neural processes. The emergence of self-conscious states is not a drastic, extravagant, earth-shaking phenomenon. #Quote by Istvan Aranyosi
United States quotes by Marc Morano
#204. Coal is the moral choice, particularly for the developing world ... The model for the world right now should be Australia. Australia gets it. Scientifically they get it, politically they get it and particularly when it comes to the United Nations, they get it. They are pulling out of this, they are repealing their carbon tax and Canada seems to be intrigued by what Australia is doing. #Quote by Marc Morano
United States quotes by Joseph Chilton Pearce
#205. What we are teaches the child far more than what we say, so we must be what we want our children to become. #Quote by Joseph Chilton Pearce
United States quotes by Eleanor Smeal
#206. Carolyn Maloney identifies with the possibility of being raped, that's why she hung in there for the Debbie Smith Bill. So it - it's essential that in New York, if we can't get a prominent woman in New York, where can we? I mean there's so many states that have never even had a woman senator. We're still on our first this and our first that. #Quote by Eleanor Smeal
United States quotes by Alice Paul
#207. The Woman's Party is made up of women of all races, creeds and nationalities who are united on the one program of working to raise the status of women. #Quote by Alice Paul
United States quotes by Winston Churchill
#208. I had no idea of the enormous and unquestionably helpful part that humbug plays in the social life of great peoples dwelling in a state of democratic freedom. #Quote by Winston Churchill
United States quotes by Adolf Loos
#209. The work of art is brought into the world without there being a need for it. The house satisfies a requirement. The work of art is responsible to none; the house is responsible to everyone. The work of art wants to draw people out of their state of comfort. #Quote by Adolf Loos
United States quotes by Hannah Arendt
#210. Unfortunately, the fact is that modern antisemitism grew in proportion as traditional nationalism declined, and reached its climax at the exact moment when the European system of nation-states and its precarious balance of power crashed. #Quote by Hannah Arendt
United States quotes by Antonin Artaud
#211. It is thus that the few rare lucid well-disposed people who have had to struggle on the earth find themselves at certain hours of the day or night in the depth of certain authentic and waking nightmare states, surrounded by the formidable suction, the formidable oppression of a kind of civic magic which will soon be seen appearing openly in social behavior. #Quote by Antonin Artaud
United States quotes by Libba Bray
#212. Reality is a state of mind. To the banker, the money in his ledger book is all very real, though he doesn't actually see it or touch it. But to the Brahma, it simply doesn't exist the way the air and the earth, pain and loss do. To him, the banker's reality is folly. To the banker, the Brahma's ideas are as inconsequential as dust. #Quote by Libba Bray
United States quotes by John Henry Newman
#213. The nature of the case and the history of philosophy combine to recommend to us this division of intellectual labour between Academies and Universities. To discover and to teach are distinct functions; they are also distinct gifts, and are not commonly found united in the same person. He, too, who spends his day in dispensing his existing knowledge to all comers is unlikely to have either leisure or energy to acquire new. #Quote by John Henry Newman
United States quotes by Frederick Lenz
#214. When you are enlightened and have united your mind with the deepest and most ancient part of the mind of the universe, you are not affected by suffering the way other people are. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
United States quotes by Molly Friedenfeld
#215. When we involve others in spontaneous acts of kindness, we go from being strangers to becoming a united team connected at the heart level. #Quote by Molly Friedenfeld
United States quotes by Greg Saunier
#216. I love love. Growing up, I always thought it was a state, and I'd wait for it to appear. Now I think it's an activity, a skill, something you strive to create. A constant conversation between emotion and imagination and flesh. #Quote by Greg Saunier
United States quotes by James Madison
#217. The real difference of interests, lay not between large and small, but between the Northern and Southern states. The institution of slavery and its consequences formed a line of discrimination. #Quote by James Madison
United States quotes by A.A. Milne
#218. Almost anyone can be an author; the business is to collect money and fame from this state of being. #Quote by A.A. Milne
United States quotes by Mary Astell
#219. Women are not so well united as to form an Insurrection. They are for the most part wise enough to love their Chains, and to discern how becomingly they fit. #Quote by Mary Astell
United States quotes by Nathaniel Lyon
#220. Rather than concede to the state of Missouri for one single instant the right to dictate to my government in any matter however unimportant, I would see you, and you, and you, and you, and every man, woman and child in the state, dead and buried. This means war. #Quote by Nathaniel Lyon
United States quotes by John Mearsheimer
#221. In an ideal world, where there are only good states, power would be largely irrelevant. #Quote by John Mearsheimer
United States quotes by Archie Shepp
#222. I find that here in the States, audiences are generally less knowledgeable, from the cognitive point of view, though they are emotionally more receptive. #Quote by Archie Shepp
United States quotes by Jesse Jackson
#223. We picked their cotton. We cooked their food. We nursed their babies. Now we can run their cities. We can run their states. We will run the country. #Quote by Jesse Jackson
United States quotes by Three Initiates
#224. The vibration of Spirit is at such an infinite rate of intensity and rapidity that it is practically at rest - just as a rapidly moving wheel seems to be motionless. And at the other end of the scale, there are gross forms of matter whose vibrations are so low as to seem at rest. Between these poles, there are millions upon millions of varying degrees of vibration. From corpuscle and electron, atom and molecule, to worlds and universes, everything is in vibratory motion. This is also true on the planes of energy and force (which are but varying degrees of vibration); and also on the mental planes (whose states depend upon vibrations); and even on to the spiritual planes. An understanding of this Principle, with the appropriate formulas, enables Hermetic students to control their own mental vibrations as well as those of others. The Masters also apply this Principle to the conquering of Natural phenomena, in various ways. "He who understands the Principle of Vibration, has grasped the sceptre of Power," says one of the old writers. #Quote by Three Initiates
United States quotes by Maddy Malhotra
#225. Depression, anger, and sadness are states of mind, and so are happiness, peace, and contentment. You can choose to be in any of these states because it's your mind. #Quote by Maddy Malhotra
United States quotes by Alcee Hastings
#226. Nearly 60 years ago, the international community made a commitment to put an end to the crime of genocide by ratifying the United Nations Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide. #Quote by Alcee Hastings
United States quotes by Barbara Mikulski
#227. The women of the Senate are like the U.S. Olympic team: we come in different sizes, but we sure are united in our determination to do the best for our country! #Quote by Barbara Mikulski
United States quotes by Ben Jonson
#228. Tis not the wholesome sharp mortality,
Or modest anger of a satiric spirit,
That hurts or wounds the body of a state,
But the sinister application
Of the malicious, ignorant, and base
Interpreter; who will distort and strain
The general scope and purpose of an author
To his particular and private spleen. #Quote by Ben Jonson
United States quotes by Shai Agassi
#229. I started digging and found that Israel signed a peace treaty with the United Arab Emirates after the country had diversified their economy, instead of being solely oil-based. This diversification had brought about modernization. I realized that if you land the price of oil, countries will diversify their economies and as a result, modernize. #Quote by Shai Agassi
United States quotes by Jimmy Fallon
#230. With more and more states legalizing marijuana, companies are lining up to create the first marijuana breathalyzer. Officials say the toughest part is getting stoners to stop trying to inhale off the breathalyzer. #Quote by Jimmy Fallon
United States quotes by Abul A'la Maududi
#231. Leaves no room of human legislation in an Islamic state, because herein all legislative functions vest in God and the only function left for Muslims lies in their observance of the God-made law. #Quote by Abul A'la Maududi
United States quotes by Gary Younge
#232. In more than half of American homes where there are both children and firearms, according to a 2000 study, the weapons are in an unlocked place, and in more than 40 percent of homes, guns without a trigger lock are in an unlocked place. Almost three-quarters of children under the age of ten who live in homes with guns say they know where the guns are. A 2005 study showed that more than 1.69 million children and youth under eighteen live in homes with weapons that are loaded and unlocked. According to a Department of Education study, 65% of school shootings between 1974 and 2000 were carried out with a gun from the attacker's home or the home of a relative. And the laws, it seems, are effective. One study indicated that in the twelve states where child-access prevention laws were on the books for at least one year, unintentional gun deaths fell by 23 percent. #Quote by Gary Younge
United States quotes by Jason Wu
#233. I'm an American designer. It's important to riff on that. I remember, when my mom and I first came to the States, she was so shocked that everyone was so dressed down in sandals and shorts. It's not quite like that in Asia. To give that a superluxurious makeover? For me to make street wear? It's sort of chic to do it. #Quote by Jason Wu
United States quotes by Barack Obama
#234. When we think of the major threats to our national security, the first to come to mind are nuclear proliferation, rogue states and global terrorism. But another kind of threat lurks beyond our shores, one from nature, not humans - an avian flu pandemic. #Quote by Barack Obama
United States quotes by Timothy Snyder
#235. Yet if states were destroyed, local institutions corrupted, and economic incentives directed towards murder, few of us would behave well. #Quote by Timothy Snyder
United States quotes by Gideon Rachman
#236. I have never believed that there is a secret United Nations plot to take over the US ... But, for the first time in my life, I think the formation of some sort of world government is plausible. #Quote by Gideon Rachman
United States quotes by Steven Erikson
#237. We don't even know where we are. What realm is this? What world lies beyond this forest? Cousin, we have nowhere else to go.' 'Nowhere, and anywhere. In the circumstances, Nimander, the former leads to the latter, like reaching a door everyone believes barred, locked tight, and lo, it opens wide at the touch. Nowhere and anywhere are states of mind. #Quote by Steven Erikson
United States quotes by Conor Cruise O'Brien
#238. The main thing that endears the United Nations to member governments, and so enables it to survive, is its proven capacity to fail, and to be seen to fail. #Quote by Conor Cruise O'Brien
United States quotes by Richard Engel
#239. In 2015, when I went back to the States or to an international conference, I found that people didn't much care anymore. They saw the Middle East awash in blood, beyond redemption, and didn't want to read about it or see it on the evening news. They just wanted to keep away from it. #Quote by Richard Engel
United States quotes by Elizabeth Smart
#240. It is enough, the now, and though it comes without anything, it gives me everything.
With it I can repopulate the world. I can bring forth new worlds in underground shelters while the bombs are dropping above; I can do it in lifeboats as the ship goes down; I can do it in prisons without the guard's permission; and O, when I do it quietly in the lobby while the conference is going on, a lot of states-men will emerge twirling their moustaches, and see the birth blood, and know they have been foiled.
Love is strong as death. #Quote by Elizabeth Smart
