Stephanie Cutter
Italy and Spain really are not my countries.
Ruud van Nistelrooy
I always say, I’m certain I changed ‘Watchmen’ less than the Coen brothers changed ‘No Country for Old Men.’ I’m certain of it. But you don’t hear the Cormac McCarthy fans, like, up in arms about it. They should be. It’s like an amazing Pulitzer Prize-winning book.

Conan O’Brien
For me, and this may not be everybody, but because I do love country music so much, there’s such a feeling of home in Nashville, especially because it’s such a small town.

Families, like countries, take their prophets unkindly, but a verse-speaker in the house is dishonor to be hooted.

I take a backseat to no one in my affection, respect and devotion to veterans. And I will not accept from Senator Obama, who did not feel it was his responsibility to serve our country in uniform, any lectures on my regard for those who did.
John McCain
German dominance in the EU is a fact of life. But for historical reasons, it would be the last country to be swept away by a populist wave. And one thing is certain: If Germany goes down, Europe goes down, and with it all the values which we thought are worth living for. Germany has to be the champion of these values.
Anthony Glees
Who can live in heart so glad
As the merry country lad?
Nicholas Breton
I find that other countries have this or this, but Italy is the only one that has it all for me. The culture, the cuisine, the people, the landscape, the history. Just everything to me comes together there.
Frances Mayes
I’m a serious optimist. I come from a country where you have little to be hopeful for, and so you have to always be an optimist.
Leymah Gbowee
Winning an NBA championship is the biggest thing that can happen professionally because it’s the top. But representing your country-with more than 30 million people cheering for you and then seeing you up there on the podium-it’s hard to find any more words to put on that.
Manu Ginobili
If they (Muslim women) wish to cover their faces and isolate themselves from the rest of the community and so thoroughly reject our culture then I cannot imagine why they want to be here at all. Perhaps they should just push off back to their own countries.
Norman Tebbit
Alcohol is certainly one of the most abused drugs since ever and ever, since Dionysus. They say have a glass of wine at dinner, which was done in the Latin countries. In Italy we always had a glass of wine at dinner. It is a good thing. But if you have dozens of glasses of wine at dinner it is not so good.
Laura Huxley
A developed country isn’t a place where the poor have cars. It’s where the rich use public transportation.
Gustavo Petro
Looking at the high cost of occupation in Iraq and the needs we have in this country, would it not have been better to have smaller tax cuts in order to keep down the deficits.
Timothy J. Russert
Fundamentalism is not bred in poverty. There are plenty of poor countries in the world that don’t have violence because amid the poverty there is a kind of justice and in some countries a democracy.
Robert Fisk
A country can get more real joy out of just hollering for their freedom than they can if they get it.
Will Rogers
Come home to the affirmation that we have a dream. Come home to the conviction that we can move our country forward. Come home to the belief that we can seek a newer world. And let us be joyful in the homecoming.
George McGovern
I tried to imagine a church that did not support its country’s wars as a matter of patriotic course and instead stood against the devastation and suffering they caused in people’s lives.” (from ‘The Dance of the Dissident Daughter’.)
Sue Monk Kidd
We have two political parties in this country, the Stupid Party and the Evil Party. I belong to the Stupid Party.
Alan K. Simpson
I think the University of Texas has the chance to become the finest public university in the country.
Tom Hicks
India is an independent country, we have our own policies and future. We have to think about the future of our 125 crore people. There should be no compromise on our interests. We have relations with America in the context of these fundamental points.
Narendra Modi
I think people know very little, really, about the court, how it works and its history. And both of those things are important in our country, but they’re not things that most citizens know much about.
Sandra Day O’Connor
I do feel like once you know you are someone who is in the world and there are other countries and cultures, that stays with you and your decision-making forever.
Miriam Shor
I am aware that my name has been connected with all the bank robberies in the country; but positively I had nothing to do with any one of them. I look upon my life since the war as a blank, and will never say anything to make it appear otherwise.
Cole Younger
We can almost recycle everything now. If we lived within our means, by being prudent, the 7 billion people in the world could have everything they needed. Global politics should be moving in that direction. But we think as people and countries, not as a species.
Jose Mujica
People often presume I’m from whatever country they’re from. So Americans presume I’m American and the British presume I’m British. And they’re surprised to discover I actually am Australian. And actually some Australians are surprised too.
Garth Nix
Today, if you want to access a typical out-of-print book, you have only one choice – fly to one of a handful of leading libraries in the country and hope to find it in the stacks.
Sergey Brin
Was it pretty? Your country. . .your land?” “It was beautiful,” the gunslinger said. “There were fields and forests and rivers and mists in the morning. But that’s only pretty. My mother used to say that the only real beauty is order and love and light.
Stephen King
Everything in this country [the US] has got to be good looks and unlined faces and thin bodies and people running around in skirts slit up to their ass. It has nothing to do with thinking or with being a human being. There is life in mature people; it’s not all over at 24ВЅ.
Lauren Bacall
A collection of huts surrounded by a barbed wire fence, and in the huts lived 500 of the original inhabitants of our area. And so it went with many country towns around Australia.
Phillip Noyce
People in every country should be free to choose and live their faith based upon the persuasion of the mind, and the heart, and the soul. This tolerance is essential for religion to thrive.
Barack Obama
As for my country, I don’t live there, but obviously I’m very proud to be Canadian.
Mike Weir
Soft men tend to be born from soft countries.
Faith greatly shaped America’s role in the world. We are a country that embodies the Bible verse from Luke chapter 12, verse 48 “From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded.”
Marco Rubio
I’m absolutely confident that the actions we took in Iraq are influencing reformers and freedom lovers in the greater Middle East. And I believe that you’re going to see the rise of democracy in many countries in the broader Middle East, which will lay the foundation for peace.
George W. Bush
We have enough votes to run the country. And when the people say, We’ve had enough, we are going to take over.
Pat Robertson
America is not so much a country as it is an idea, and that must be why so many people are drawn to it, the idea of it, the idea that you might be free of your past, free of the traditions that kept you in your own traditions – that is the idea of it: freedom from your very own self.
Jamaica Kincaid
I am still the only elected president of the country.
Jean-Bertrand Aristide
This is a sleaze bag murdering dog and he [O.J. Simpson] has played us for fools. And the worst thing he did was exacerbate the racial divide in this country. He divided black and white America.
Geraldo Rivera
I state the threefold purpose of my travels in Arabia: to see the country, to write about it and to be of some service to its people and their cause – that is what brought me from beyond the seas, from America.
Ameen Rihani
The international community can’t trust such a government. If the government of Iran wants the international community to believe in what it says, it should try to bring true, pure democracy into the country. The political solution to the energy issue or the nuclear case is democracy in Iran.
Shirin Ebadi
This country maintains that there is no political prisoners, that everybody is criminals, but it’s just not true.
Sekou Odinga
Without education, your children can never really meet the challenges they will face. So it’s very important to give children education and explain that they should play a role for their country.
Nelson Mandela
I live in a country where we put children in shackles and in concrete cells. Working together, with righteousness and hope, we can create a country that is about reverence and reconciliation, not a world of shackles and concrete cells.
Lateefah Simon
We are not a country that subscribes to policing any part of the world. The areas we are comfortable with are capacity building, intelligence sharing, exchange of ships, call on each other’s ports, joint training and exercises.
Salman Khurshid
It is with regret that I pronounce the fatal truth: Louis ought to perish rather than a hundred thousand virtuous citizens; Louis must die that the country may live
Maximilien Robespierre
My love of nationalism is that my country may become free, and if need be, the whole of the country die, so that the human race may live.
Mahatma Gandhi
Religion is run by thought police. ‘Obey. Listen. This is what you do. Don’t ask questions. Go die for your country.’ The spirituality says, ‘Okay, you can die for your country, but know what you’re doing while you’re doing it.’
Tommy Chong
Our goal is to make sure that everyone in this country has access to affordable healthcare, including people with pre-existing conditions. So they can access affordable coverage. That is not what you have with Obamacare.
Paul Ryan
The death penalty is becoming a way of life in this country.
Dennis Miller
No country has ever closely scrutinized itself visually … I know what we could make of it if people only thought we could dare look at ourselves.
Dorothea Lange
The efforts of the medical profession in the US to control:…its…job it proposes to monopolize. It has been carrying on a vigorous campaign all over the country against new methods and schools of healing because it wants the business…I have watched this medical profession for a long time and it bears watching.
Clarence Darrow
Networks decide who will have a chance to do shows, but it is the viewers who make the final decision of who stays and who goes. I am very fortunate, in that the television viewers of our country have decided that Bob Barker can stay.
Bob Barker
Havin’ fun while freedom fightin’ must be one of those lunatic Texas traits we get from the water – which is known to have lithium in it – because it goes all the way back to Sam Houston, surely the most lovable, the most human, and the funniest of all the great men this country has ever produced.
Molly Ivins
I’d come to the country to do my Thoreau bit, so I needed an office that looked out onto the woods for inspiration. I converted one of the bedrooms into my workspace and through its windows watched the wildlife appear each morning with the sunrise. Many were the days I would sit in wonder, coffee in hand, for hours.
David Mixner
To make us love our country, our country ought to be lovely.
Edmund Burke
We just believed in ourselves, and we knew that we had an entire city and maybe an enitre country behind us. What can I say? I tried to imagine what this moment would be like for a long time, and it’s better than expected.
Drew Brees
I think every young child can learn through any martial art. They would then learn to respect their life, respect their parents, respect their country, and respect the whole world.
Jackie Chan
The invisible is only another unexplored country, a brave new world.
Angela Carter
It sometimes happens that the town child is more alive to the fresh beauty of the country than a child who is country born
Beatrix Potter
I care more about the country than what happens to me. But we can’t allow the law to become a political weapon or agree to scare people away from standing up for their rights, no matter how good the deal. I’m not going to be part of that.
Edward Snowden
No country can hide from the dangers of carbon pollution
Barack Obama
World War II had been such a tremendous success story for this country that the political and military leadership began to assume that they would prevail simply because of who they were. We were like the British at the turn of the 19th century.
Neil Sheehan
We may convert every house in the country into a charity asylum, we may fill the land with hospitals, but the misery of man will still continue to exist until man’s character changes.
Swami Vivekananda
No one can pass through life, any more than he can pass through a bit of country, without leaving tracks behind, and those tracks may often be helpful to those coming after him in finding their way.
Robert Baden-Powell
In this country kings or dukes don’t amount to nothing. The greatest man around then was Franklin D. Roosevelt, and he was the President; so I started calling Lester the President. It got shortened to Pres.
Billie Holiday
The matter of people being attracted to other countries is a permanent problem in my view, it doesn’t only face South Africa. A whole lot of countries in the world are faced with this problem.
Thabo Mbeki
Whither shall I flee? To no country on earth that I know of where there is as much liberty as yet remains to me even in Virginia.
Robert E. Lee
My God! My God! What will the country say?
Abraham Lincoln
If you are a Morocco citizen with a dual nationality, if you commit a crime in Morocco you are stripped Moroccan nationality and send to our own country. We can learn from them in that respect.
Geert Wilders
Your ethnic or sexual identity, what region of the country you’re from, what your class is – those aspects of your identity are not the same as your aesthetic identity.
Stanley Crouch
While the armed forces have intervened in the political affairs of every other Central American country over the past fifty years, with disastrous results, in Costa Rica we have peacefully transferred power from one administration to the next every four years.
Oscar Arias
I’m very proud that President [George W.] Bush took on AIDS relief. It was the largest single response by any country to a major international health crisis, and there are millions of people who are alive today in Africa and other developing countries because of that program.
Condoleezza Rice
One of the best ways countries can combat poverty is to use development assistance to promote a growing private sector, in which the poor can fully participate.
John Danilovich
In the history of humanity, there’s never been a country like America.
Ted Cruz
American people have the ability to laugh at themselves. It is one of the things that makes this country the great country that it is.
Desi Arnaz
The way we’ve been neglecting to support our libraries throughout the country is a shame.
Matthew Lesko
We are a strong democratic country.
Aleksander Kwasniewski
If someone is cynical and doesn’t vote and ends up with a crummy job in a crummy country with a decimated environment, they only have themselves to blame.
My country has contrived for me the most insignificant office that ever the invention of man contrived or his imagination conceived.
John Adams
Obama isn’t just too big to fail. He’s too big to know. Obama is so vital to the country and to the world, he must be kept out of the loop in order to save him from his failed presidency.
Rush Limbaugh
Israel is the only country in the Middle East where Arabs can be elected to the parliament in a democratic election.
Adam Michnik
Liberals say that we are secular country with a majority of Christians, absolutely.
Rachel Maddow
One of the most singular facts about the unwritten history of this country is the consummate ability with which Southern influence, Southern ideas and Southern ideals, have from the very beginning even up to the present day, dictated to and domineered over the brain and sinew of this nation.
Anna Julia Cooper
Eisenhower admitted that the budget can’t be balanced and McCarthy said the communists are taking over. You don’t know what to worry about these days – whether the country will be overthrown or overdrawn.
Bob Hope
We cannot say that everything developed in capitalist countries is of a capitalist nature. For instance, technology, science – even advanced production management is also a sort of science – will be useful in any society or country.
Deng Xiaoping
I thought Europe was a country?
Kellie Pickler
[Barack] Obama has a grasp of language and the presentation of language, particularly in times of crisis. And he did this over the race issue. He did this early on in his administration, when the country was polarized. That was unprecedented.
Frank Luntz
Throughout my career, Ive wrestled a lot of countries.
Scott Steiner
There are whole precincts of voters in this country whose united intelligence does not equal that of one representative American woman.
Carrie Chapman Catt
Assimilation is really a psychological process where you come to identify with a new country as yours. The ease of overseas travel and information access interferes with that.
Mark Krikorian
For instance, in the last five years [till 2016], we’ve admitted nearly 100,000 immigrants from Iraq and Afghanistan. And these two countries according to Pew Research, a majority of residents say that the barbaric practice of honor killings against women are often or sometimes justified. That’s what they say.
Donald Trump
Under weak government, in a wide, thinly populated country, in the struggle against the raw natural environment and with the freeplay of economic forces, unified social groups become the transmitters of culture.
Johan Huizinga
South Africa is regarded as being an extraordinarily important country – not just for South Africa, but for Southern Africa, for the BRICS, working now in a new way in which power is becoming more shared – thankfully.
Mary Robinson
I think half the population supports this ban on these dangerous immigrants who are going to come in and do something, who knows what. And meanwhile the countries that really have been involved in terrorism, they’re out. It’s kind of like I think it was Oklahoma banning Sharia law.
Noam Chomsky
I wanted to say to Elvis Presley and the country that this is a real decent, fine boy, and wherever you go, Elvis, we want to say we’ve never had a pleasanter experience on our show with a big name than we’ve had with you.
Ed Sullivan
If you actually took the number of Muslims Americans, we’d be one of the largest Muslim countries in the world.
Barack Obama
Countries don’t go out of business….The infrastructure doesn’t go away, the productivity of the people doesn’t go away, the natural resources don’t go away. And so their assets always exceed their liabilities, which is the technical reason for bankruptcy. And that’s very different from a company.
Walter Wriston
Greece is an extreme case: a country where both the level of spending and the level of taxation were unsustainable!
Malcolm Turnbull
When people are judged by merit, not connections, then the best and brightest can lead the country, people will work hard, and the entire economy will grow – everyone will benefit and more resources will be available for all, not just select groups.
Barack Obama
The main division in the world is between democratic and undemocratic countries.
Michael Mandelbaum
If our country, when pressed with wrongs at the point of the bayonet, had been governed by its heads instead of its hearts, where should we have been now? Hanging on a gallows as high as Haman’s.
Thomas Jefferson
I don’t like the idea of nationalism, but on the other hand, I do see that there is a difference between British art, German art and Chinese art. This is because of the history, because each country has different history and each country reads and teaches that history differently.
Michael Craig-Martin
What I want to do more than anything as president of the United States is to restore the honor and dignity and respect that this country is owed around the world.
Howard Dean
If you want to be a civilised man, first you have to be a non-violent man! If you want to be a civilised country, first you have to be a non-violent country! Violence is the means of the sick minds; peacefulness is the means of the healthy minds!
Mehmet Murat Ildan
We need to tell young people that America was built by men and women of all colors and that the future of this country is dependent on the participation of all of our citizens.
Walter Dean Myers
What exile from his country is able to escape from himself?
Christians in this country have found themselves under selective assault. God has, almost overnight, been removed from the educational, legal, and political institutions of the country.
Daniel Lapin
I am not a theologian, nor am I a priest or a minister, but I think building walls is fundamentally contrary to what made this country what it is. We’re a pluralistic society in its functions.
Joe Biden
I am just an old country boy in a big town trying to get along. I have been eating pretty regular and the reason I have been is because I have stayed an old country boy.
Will Rogers
A great number of tourists have been flocking Iceland and those numbers are growing every year. That also raises questions like “How do we receive people?” and “How do we present our country?”
I’m honestly so incredibly grateful for every opportunity I get in film industry. Don’t forget! I was born in a tiny little country in a small town and here I am working in Canada and America and it’s incredible.
Famke Janssen
What I want to do is to make sure that we fully repeal Obamacare. This will be one of the largest spending initiatives we will ever see in our country. And also, it will take away choice from the American people.
Michele Bachmann
Saving petrol is saving India’s money. This is a sense of patriotism. The country can be energy-independent by energy conservation. I appeal to the other ministers also to do this.
Veerappa Moily
There is something to be said for the power of figureheads. After Hillary Clinton became secretary of state, a record number of countries posted female ambassadors to the U.S. – some of whom have dubbed this ‘the Hillary effect.’
Jessica Valenti
What’s really important is how our country gets through Trump period, because nothing’s getting done in Washington. Every day it’s another set of tweets and another set of controversies. And they’re not getting anything done.
Al Gore
The melody seems to have gone to the country. The country music seems to still have melody and interesting lyrics. But pop music, you’ve got to really listen hard to somebody who’s doing a good melody and a good lyric.
Barry Manilow
By creating the European Central Bank, the member states exposed their own government bonds to the risk of default. Developed countries that issue bonds in their own currency never default, because they can always print money. Their currency may depreciate, but the risk of default is absent.
George Soros
The meaning of life has not much to do with good and evil, right and wrong, duty, honor, country, or any of that. It has to do with cutting the right deal.
Nelson DeMille
That’s what we want to do here at Johnson Space Center. I think what we have always brought to NASA and brought to the country is trying to push the boundaries, trying to go to the next level.
Ellen Ochoa
This is a major step forward in achieving our objective, which is an ally having a democratic Iraq, a country able to sustain itself and defend itself, a country that will be an ally in the war on terror and a country which will set such a powerful example to others in the region.
Tucker Carlson
In the end, the country is going the say, You know, whatever [Donald] Trump’s weaknesses may be, he’s a sincere guy trying very hard to get this country back on the right track.
Newt Gingrich
From the late 1940s, into and through the ’50s, there developed a complex interaction between federal government, state and local government, real-estate interests, commercial interests and court decisions, which had the effect of undermining the mass transit system across the country.
Noam Chomsky
This country cannot afford to tear itself apart on a partisan basis on issues so vital to our national security.
Henry A. Kissinger
In the three minutes it takes the song to play I’m caught in a magic world of harmony and joy, a truly ecstatic joy, where the aching longing to be somewhere else, out of this city, out of this country, out of this body and out of this life, is kept at bay.
Christos Tsiolkas
Countries are either mothers or fathers, and engender the emotional bristle secretly reserved for either sire.
Edna O’Brien
If we were in another country, we would stone Henry Hyde to death and we would go to their homes and kill their wives and their children. We would kill their families, for what they’re doing to this country.
Alec Baldwin
I still believe we wasted a golden opportunity to make significant changes in our country. I think people in America would have been ready and willing to do it, but the Bush administration took a kind of simplistic, almost moronic approach to it, all because people were so afraid.
Paul Auster
There Is No Terrorist Threat In This Country. This Is A Lie. This Is The Biggest Lie We’ve Been Told.
Michael Moore
The thing that makes countries want to pursue some kind of nuclear deterrent is precisely the fact that they feel threatened.
Stephen Walt
Many Americans have no idea of what has been the foreign policy of their country. If you don’t know about something, you can’t understand what is going on.
Mick Jagger
I love rock music, I love country music – I love all music, lets be honest!
Fefe Dobson
My politics are of a practical kind – the integrity of the country, the supremacy of the Federal government, an honorable peace, or none at all.
Winfield Scott
Is it wrong for me to love my own? Is it wicked for me because my skin is red? Because I am Sioux? Because I was born where my father lived? Because I would die for my people and my country?
Sitting Bull
There is already enough superstition in our country. No effort should be spared to resist further addition in the shape of Gandhi worship.
Mahatma Gandhi
Now, at the end of my visit to the Philippines, I commend you to Him, to Jesus who came among us as a child. May He enable all the beloved people of this country to work together, protecting one another, beginning with your families and communities, in building a world of justice, integrity and peace.
Pope Francis
This is a very unforgiving country when you show this country its warts, when you hold the mirror up. If you happen not to share their beliefs, they’ll kill you.
H. Rap Brown
I think women as well as men are concerned about jobs and the economy and spending and, and other issues. They’re concerned that when their kids graduate from college they have an economy and they have a future in this country and they, they have the same opportunity that we’ve had and our grandparents have had.
Ken Buck
Heroes who shed their blood and lost their lives! You are now lying in the soil of a friendly country. Therefore rest in peace.
Mustafa Kemal Ataturk
We have but one flag, one country; let us stand together. We may differ in color, but not in sentiment.
Nathan Bedford Forrest
I’m telling you, you can’t compare Saudi Arabia to other countries.
Al-Waleed bin Talal
If I could have my way I would place the Deity on half-pay as the Government of this Country did the subaltern officers.
George Holyoake
Mandela has played a crucial part in history. He’s done some extraordinary things, not only for his country but also for the whole world.
Zinedine Zidane
John McCain is a personal friend, a great friend, and I would be honored to run with or against John McCain, because I think the country would be better off, be well off no matter who.
Joe Biden
The genius of our country is improvisation, and jazz reflects that. It’s our great contribution to the arts.
Ken Burns
[Country Music] is the final destination for many punk rockers […] Rockabilly is the mid-point and then [they] end up at Country […] There’s purity to that music and I think that appeals to a lot of punk rock people – the precision, the purity, and the directness of Country Music.
John C. Reilly
I don’t think things are getting more insane. I do know that the country is more divided than it’s ever been. Tensions in America are at their peak.
Trevor Noah
Beautiful, Glorious Scotland, has spoilt me for every other country.
Mary Todd Lincoln
America is the greatest country in the whole world.
Chris Rock
There are war-torn countries, people full of poverty, who still voted, 60, 70 percent. If here in the United States of America, we voted at 60 percent, 70 percent, it would transform our politics.
Barack Obama
I never get the girl. I wind up with a country instead. They said all I was good for was playing Indians.
Anthony Quinn
We reward people a lot for being rich, for being famous, for being cute, for being thin… one of the values I think we need to instill in our country, in our children, is a sense of ‘usefulness’, in other words, are we useful, are we making other peoples’ lives a little bit better?
Barack Obama
I’ve always loved playing live shows. I love traveling, seeing the country. I’ve made a lot of lifelong friends on the road at shows. It’s so neat to see that so many of our fans have become friends. There are these nice little groups of “X People” everywhere.
Exene Cervenka
Breast cancer alone kills some 458,000 people each year, according to the World Health Organization, mainly in low- and middle-income countries. It has got to be a priority to ensure that more women can access gene testing and lifesaving preventive treatment, whatever their means and background, wherever they live.
Angelina Jolie
And here and now we must insist again that fidelity, honor, and love of country demand untrammeled debate and open dissent. At no time is that truer than in the midst of a war rooted in deceit and justified by continuing deception.
John F. Kerry
When you have a country that’s been accustomed to government spending at a certain level, it is really hard to ratchet it back.
Mike Lee
We’re a crazy country about sports, but for the longest time, only followed our own sports.
Claudio Reyna
The Anglo-Saxon world saw India as an underdeveloped country. The land of snake charmers, the cows on the street, that “ex-colony-backward-nation” kind of viewpoint, very condescending. Europe on the other hand, saw India in a more romantic, mystical, spiritual way, as a place that’s a fountain of wisdom.
Kabir Bedi
Hundreds of millions of people around the world have been lifted out of poverty with the creation of robust middle classes in India and China, which is an enormously positive development for those countries that also creates opportunities for the rest of the world.
Dan Quayle
God tipped the country and all the fruits and nuts rolled west.
Mike Royko
There are countries that are near ours which are in the situation which we all know. I want to say that this is not the case of Spain now and it will not be in the future.
Mariano Rajoy
America is one of the highest tax nations in the world. Reducing taxes will cause new companies and new jobs to come roaring back into our country. Believe me, it’ll happen and it’ll happen fast.
Donald Trump
And at five o’clock in the morning we left to drive to Old Tucson, and I sat with my mouth open in the van. I was stunned by the beauty of that country.
Erika Slezak
Our soldiers, sailors, airmen, Marines and Coast Guardsmen volunteer to protect and defend this country and all its citizens, and do so with honor, integrity and excellence. Our nation continually asks them to do more and more, with less and less.
Allen West
Knowledge and power in the city; peace and decency in the country.
Mason Cooley
What’s interesting is this election year has made the citizen groups off-limits. All these citizen groups? – local, state, national? – that really do things and improve the country, they’re never asked to be in these electoral campaign discussions.
Ralph Nader
I do think there’s gonna always be a group of country people that are always going to love the old traditional sound.
Dolly Parton
You cover the bad news about America. You do. But you don’t get up in the morning hating your country. And so, until somebody shows me lines at the border trying to get out, I think there’s some good news.
Roger Ailes
The reality is if you take any three people and look at their cellphones or blackberries and facebook pages, you can get to almost everywhere in the country, because we’re networked together in a way that is incredibly powerful.
Van Jones
My life has been a bit special, this is true. I participated in the liberation of my country. I was one of the organisers of its struggle for liberation. I likewise actively participated in all the struggles for liberation.
Ahmed Ben Bella
The issues that matter to me are the social safety nets for people, health care, middle-class concerns. We need to take care of the middle class and the poor in our country.
Tim McGraw
I’ve run less risk driving my way across country than eating my way across it.
Duncan Hines
I love this country because I didn’t always have it. Freedom, food, water that is clean, Constitution – these are not things I take for granted.
Sayed Badreya
The playoffs are the wedge between the season and the World Series. If you lose, it means you won’t be going to the greatest sports event in this country…You’re forgotten by Thanksgiving.
Tim McCarver
As much as I cherish your [McCarthy’s] right to a platform as an independent candidate I am not going to sit here quietly and listen to you denigrate the two party system. It has served our country well over the last two hundred years.
John Anderson
We need a regime change in this country…. If we launch a pre-emptive strike on Iraq we lose all moral authority.
Jesse Jackson
The Labour Party is going about the country stirring up apathy.
William Whitelaw, 1st Viscount Whitelaw
Callista Gingrich. Karen Santorum. Ann Romney. Now do you really think our country is ready for a white first lady?
Robert De Niro
I dont want any injustice brought against the bullies. Bullies just dont know any better. Anyone who is crying about police brutality or victimization as an adult needs to stop it and realize the privileges we have in this country.
Ariel Pink
I showed what I can do with butter, right? Eighty-five percent increase in sales. I’m very proud of them Country Life ads. They were funny and clever and classy like the Toblerone ads I grew up with.
John Lydon
Black America now has the power to achieve economic inclusion, which we rightfully deserve because we built this country. This is a conversation that white America doesn’t really want to have.
Byron Allen
It’s easy to create a country, all you have to do is to think of a name for it
Robert Stone
New York is part of the natural world. I love the city, I love the country, and for the same reasons. The city is part of the country. When I had an apartment on East Forty-Eighth Street, my backyard during the migratory season yielded more birds than I ever saw in Maine.
E. B. White
The India I want, I’ll never tire of repeating, is a more just and less poor India, one entirely free of foreign influences. If I thought the country was already marching toward these objectives, I’d give up politics immediately and retire as prime minister.
Indira Gandhi
I’m cautious about the currency situation, oil pricing and the economies of some countries not performing as we are expecting.
There’s no bigger task than protecting the homeland of our country.
George W. Bush
Our economy is a hundred times better, than the average African economy. Outside South Africa, what country is [as good as] Zimbabwe?.. What is lacking now are goods on the shelves – that is all.
Robert Mugabe
School feeding not only fills stomachs, but has a proven track record of boosting enrollment, attendance and academic performance. For just pennies a day per child, this program changes lives – and ultimately can impact the futures of poor countries around the world in a profound way.
Drew Barrymore
Let it be told to the future world, that in the depth of winter, when nothing but hope and virtue could survive, the city and the country, alarmed at one common danger, came forth to meet and to repulse it.
Thomas Paine
I will set big goals for this country as president – some so large that the technology to reach them does not yet exist.””I will recruit new teachers and make new investments in rural schools, we’ll connect all of America to 21st century technology and telecommunications.
Barack Obama
If a country is not worth protecting it is not worth claiming.
George Rogers Clark
I would rather live in a country where children are protected and their predators prosecuted, and even (which in Hollywood is evidently not always the same thing) disapproved of.
Roman Polanski
There are many faces to war. There is the face of courage, of bravery, of fellowship.There is the face of fear. Above all, there is love of country.
Barbara Boxer
Senator Jon Kyl has given all of the eventual candidates in this race an excellent model of how to best serve Arizona and the country. He’s set the bar extremely high, and I’ll do my best to meet that standard.
Jeff Flake
When I look round to see how we can win the war, I see that there is only one sure path . . . and that is absolutely devastating, exterminating attack by very heavy bombers from this country upon the Nazi homeland.
Winston Churchill
I dream of starting a three-man country trio called the Chixie Dicks.
Zach Galifianakis
We need to understand that we as citizens and as a government in any community throughout this country have no more important obligation than to educate those who are going to replace us.
Colin Powell
Reformist kings can save their dynasties now by helping their countries move smoothly into democracy, or they will end their years in exile like the Russian aristocrats of a century earlier.
Elliott Abrams
Every country I’ve had different hit records, so we have to change the set to fit the country.
Bonnie Tyler
Our Country will, I believe, sooner forgive an Officer for attacking his Enemy than for letting it alone.
Horatio Nelson
It’s so great to have that opportunity with so many young American players coming up now. It’s just so exciting. We have to root for the home country.
Serena Williams
We Americans can be rightly proud of the fact that the right to the free and unfettered exercise of religion is a primary principle in the vision and founding of our country. It defines us as a people, and has uniquely contributed to making this nation great.
Salvatore J. Cordileone
First of all, Bill Clinton was an extremely good president and more importantly, the country was in a very good position when he actually walked away.
Star Jones
The truth is, that the military people are so important to our country.
Donald Trump
But as far as being an American and loving this country and getting a chance to travel across it every day and meeting people on the road and folks in the military, I love this country on so many different levels.
Dierks Bentley
It is such a disappointment in American political reaction and actions. When some of our politicians are flying around the country in private airplanes all the time, using public services as their mode of private transportation, and then criticizing us who are in business.
Arnold Palmer
How can you govern a country which has 246 varieties of cheese?
Charles de Gaulle
There are many world leaders who are worse than [Donald] Trump.They don’t just talk about violence, they practice it on an extreme scale. And we welcome them to our country.
Edward Leigh
The one thing that the President can do is to establish a real energy independence plan. We have all the resources we need right here in this country to establish energy independence if we had the leadership.
Herman Cain
The basic tenet of black consciousness is that the black man must reject all value systems that seek to make him a foreigner in the country of his birth and reduce his basic human dignity.
Steven Biko
There is in every country an antipathy to the foreigner.
Eleanor Roosevelt
When you get to the point where Baghdad is basically isolated, then what is the situation you have in the country? .. You have a country that Baghdad no longer controls; that whatever’s happening inside Baghdad is almost irrelevant compared to what’s going on in the rest of the country.
Richard Myers
I think it’s very interesting how an American network chooses to tell this story. We don’t name one country the good guy and the other country the bad guy. We talk about this co-responsibility that we share, in everything.
Demian Bichir
I’ll never quit playing country music, or at least acknowledging it, always, as the cornerstone of what I am.
Dwight Yoakam
Kitty Wells was the first and only Queen of Country Music, no matter what they call the rest of us. She was a great inspiration to me as well as every other female singer in the country music business. In addition to being a wonderful asset to country music, she was a wonderful woman. We will always remember her fondly.
Dolly Parton
We must look to the rising generation for the restoration of the country.
Robert E. Lee
America’s promises do not come with a price tag. We meet our commitments. We bear our burdens. That’s one of the reasons why almost every country on Earth sees America as stronger and more respected today than they did eight years ago when I took office.
Barack Obama
The Lisbon hub is important to Portugal, the country. That’s not going to go away. It needs to be there. The country depends on tourism.
David Neeleman
All the things that are part of your heritage make you British – that makes this country what it is. It’s part of your history. And here, unlike America, it’s still living history.
Bill Bryson
If I write novels in a country in which most citizens are illiterate, who then is my community?
Chinua Achebe
If one is talking to a finance minister of a poor country, moral arguments tend not to get very far. But if you can argue that their country is going to grow 2 percent faster per year if they can just harness the power of the female half of the population more effectively, that is an argument they consider.
Nicholas D. Kristof
She [Carolyn Maloney] has there day in and day out for us and for women of this country and of the world, but she also never forgets the citizens of New York, and she’s been, as you know a trailblazer for 9/11, commission for, you know, the financial district, etc.
Eleanor Smeal
The last four years under President Obama have been trying and troubling for this entire country. The tired big government policies of the past have failed us. We can’t afford more disappointments. We need a new direction. We need a new president.
Reince Priebus
I think in some parts of our English history we’ve had huge amounts of almost too much great comedy. You kind of wonder how so much great work could come out of one country.
Kate Bush
Descriptive anatomy is to physiology what geography is to history, and just as it is not enough to know the typography of a country to understand its history, so also it is not enough to know the anatomy of organs to understand their functions.
Claude Bernard
The civilization of a country consists in the quality of life that is lived there, and this quality shows plainest in the things that people choose to talk about when they talk together, and in the way they choose to talk about them.
Albert J. Nock
You have to be willing to see that sometimes the governments of these poor countries don’t come through. You have to think about that as a constraint. How do you help them be better? How do you come up with things that actually work, even in those tough situations.
Bill Gates
Obama has no solutions. Obama has failed the country and its great citizens, and they don’t like it when somebody such as myself speaks the truth about this – it hurts too much.
Donald Trump
I go for Mao Tse-tung much more than, than Nehru because I think that Nehru brought his country up in a beggar’s role.
Malcolm X
Southern Appalachians have been ridiculed since the country began. In fiction, they’re usually depicted in a cartoonish manner. The region is poor, and very suspicious of outsiders, so there’s a sort of ‘us versus them’ situation. They’re easy to poke fun at.
Barbara Kingsolver
I always wanted to do a baseball book; I love baseball. The problem is that a very large part of my following is in non-baseball playing countries.
Bill Bryson
The Indian economy grew at 5.5 percent, but if you look at the last 30 years – for example, 1960 to 1985 – the progress made by East Asian countries was phenomenal. In a single generation they had been able to transform the character of their economy. They were able to get rid of chronic poverty.
Manmohan Singh
Our party and the Republic’s government will go hand in hand with anyone who truly desires the country’s reunification and the nation’s peaceful prosperity and will make responsible and patient efforts to accomplish the historic cause of the fatherland’s reunification.
Kim Jong-un
The Constitution of our country [was] formed by the Fathers of liberty… Exalt the standard of Democracy! Down with that of priestcraft, and let all the people say Amen! that the blood of our fathers may not cry from the ground against us. Sacred is the memory of that blood which bought for us our liberty.
Joseph Smith, Jr.
I think a submarine is a very worthwhile weapon. I believe we can defend ourselves with submarines and all our troops back at home. This whole idea that we have to be in 130 countries and 900 bases… is an old-fashioned idea.
Ron Paul
It may be shocking to some people in this country to realize that, without meaning to do so, they hold views in common with Hitler when they preach discrimination against other religious, racial or economic groups.
Henry A. Wallace
Thanks, for a country where nobody is allowed to mind his own business. Thanks, for a nation of finks.
William S. Burroughs
The people are the masters of the revolution in each country. It is like putting a cart before the horse that foreigners carry out the revolution for them. The revolution can neither be exported nor imported.
Kim Il-sung
All of us that have teams want to pick the right people. I’ve thought a lot about that. In the NFL, we’ve got 13 scouts traveling the country. We’re trying to pick 22 year-olds coming out of college who will be successful in the NFL. It’s very hard to do. What I’ve learned is it’s always character first.
Joe Gibbs
Wages will rise, jobs will return, and factories will come rushing, rushing back in to our country.
Donald Trump
What the country needs are a few labor-making inventions.
Arnold H. Glasow
The most dangerous area where our laws are not being faithfully executed are the laws designed to protect Americans against the millions of aliens who enter our country illegally every year.
Phyllis Schlafly
All Plutophiles are based in America. If you go to other countries, they have much less of an attachment to either the existence or preservation of Pluto as a planet.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
There is a great responsibility on the team to perform well, because our supporters and the whole of the country are expecting us to do just that.
Andriy Shevchenko
Like all of you I’m angry. I’m angry at what’s happening to our nation. Citizens, it’s time to take our country back.
Carly Fiorina
We have put our country on solid ground, but let me tell you: The next five years are much, much more important. The next five years are about turning the good news in our economy into a good life for you and your family.
David Cameron
Some crime against nature is about to be committed. I feel it in my veins. These men and boys are grocers and clerks, gardeners and fathers – fathers of small children. A country cannot bear to lose them.
Sebastian Faulks
If you are going to try to go to war, or to prepare for war, in a capitalist country, you have got to let business make money out of the process or business won’t work.
Henry L. Stimson
Citizens, it is time to take our country back from the political class, from the media, from the liberal elite.
Carly Fiorina
There are over 200 million illiterate women in India. This low literacy negatively impacts not just their lives but also their families’ and the country’s economic development. A girl’s lack of education also has a negative impact on the health and well-being of her children.
Sachin Tendulkar
I have been to more than 80 countries, and there is not one-not one-that I didn’t have women coming up to me sharing stories of overcoming major abuse, a bad marriage turning good, etc.
Gloria Gaynor
In our Country… one class of men makes war and leaves another to fight it out.
William Tecumseh Sherman
When I was growing up, my mum was doing illegal smuggling with China. Sometimes she would see a fortune teller for advice. One time I went with her: ‘In your future, you’ll be living in foreign country and eating the foreign country rice,’ she said.
Lee Hyeon-seo
I’m noticing an exciting trend around the country: a resurgence of interest in Christian apologetics (the defense of the faith). This is a reaction to the current attacks on the essentials of Christianity that are coming from militant atheists, radical professors, and Internet gadflies.
Lee Strobel
When old Bobby does Elvis, you swear it’s the real mccoy. Another Friday night in the life of a country boy.
Kenny Chesney
When I moved to Brighton from London in 1995, I was struck by what I thought of as its townliness. A town, it seemed to me, was that perfect place to live, neither city nor country, both of which like to think they are light years apart but actually have a great deal in common.
Julie Burchill
Political and social justice requires, not the disintegration of a country and destruction or humiliation of a class which shows initiative, intelligence and drive, but equality of opportunity for all, genuine freedom for self-fulfilment, in which all men irrespective of caste or creed may share.
Syama Prasad Mukherjee
Though you may be supporting Obama, you may be supporting Hillary, that, ultimately, the things that we want for our country overshadow this difference at this moment. And that we have to respectfully disagree right now and be united at the end and just work towards understanding what’s at stake in November.
Maria Echaveste
We love our country, not because it is perfect in everything, but it manages to touch our heart despite all its imperfections in everything!
Mehmet Murat Ildan
I confess that for fifteen years my efforts in education, and my hopes of success in establishing a system of national education, have always been associated with the idea of coupling the education of this country with the religious communities which exist.
Richard Cobden
One of my favourite kinds of movie is the American picaresque, in which the characters make their way across the country, learning about life against the gorgeous backdrops of that vast land.
Steven Pinker
We choose our sex, our color, our country, and then we look around for the particular set of parents who will mirror the pattern we are bringing in to work on in this lifetime.
Louise L. Hay
To put it simply, school readiness means creating in this country a public love of children.
Ernest L. Boyer
Everybody knows how complicated this country’s relationship with France has been, in war and in peace. Certainly there have been times when the leaders of France could have done better by us. We should have done better by them on Sunday. Only you couldn’t find us.
Kimberley Strassel
If you see oppression of the poor, and justice and righteousness trampled in a country, do not be astounded.
For better or worse, MTV sort of bridges the whole country together almost like the BBC does in England. It’s opened up everything so wide that it’s possible for everyone to have different ideas.
Joey Ramone
One of the saddest sights of the slums is to see the thrifty wife of the working man, with her rosy brood of children, used to country air and sunshine, used to space, privacy, good surroundings, cleanliness, quiet, shut up amid the noise and dirt and confusion, in the gloom of the slum.
Albion Fellows Bacon
For industry to settle in a country, you first need electricity; for electricity, you need some trained workers; for trained workers, you need some schools; for schools you need some money; for money, you need some industry.
Evan Davis
The purpose of life is the expansion of happiness. It is the goal of every other goal. Ben Henretig has embarked on an ambitious project to document a country and culture that has embraced Happiness as a part of its national policy
Deepak Chopra
My lesson from history is that if there is a strong moderate centrist party which can lead the country, there is no room for extremists from the right or left.
Viktor Orban
I mean, I’m not a, you know, a fraidy cat. I mean, I am truly concerned in this country that we are moving towards fascism.
Glenn Beck
‘My country, right or wrong’ is a thing no patriot would ever think of saying except in a desperate case. It is like saying ‘My mother, drunk or sober.’
Gilbert K. Chesterton
Yes, bin Laden the man is dead. But he achieved all he set out to achieve, and a hell of a lot more. He forever changed who we are as a country, and for the worse. Mostly because we let him. That isn’t something a special ops team can fix.
Radley Balko
There are flaws in the way politics is reported in this country today and we should do something about it, .. Radio and television coverage of politics doesn’t see its role as a mission to explain, but to destroy, in a pernicious culture in which journalists pit themselves against politicians.
Tim Allen
In the practical art of war, the best thing of all is to take the enemy’s country whole and intact; to shatter and destroy it is not so good.
Sun Tzu
The country you’re born in is where your passport comes from. No, not according to Donald Trump! No, not at all. I resent that kind of extremism of any kind. Left wing, right wing. Anyway at all. Anything that judges other people so harshly and across the board stupidity-wise. I got no time for that.
John Lydon
Alexander Hamilton has been on the $10 since 1928, he’s been well honored by the country, he was a great Secretary of the Treasury. But of all the people on the currency, the only one who isn’t a president.
Grover Norquist
I think people need to know what they’re eating. That’s why I support “country of origin” labeling. That’s why I support labeling of GMO’s.
Jon Tester
He worked like hell in the country so he could live in the city, where he worked like hell so he could live in the country.
Don Marquis
People look at me as if I were some sort of monster, but I can’t think why. In my macabre pictures, I have either been a monster-maker or a monster-destroyer, but never a monster. Actually, I’m a gentle fellow. Never harmed a fly. I love animals, and when I’m in the country I’m a keen bird-watcher.
Peter Cushing
India is a democratic country & anyone can become a PM.
Narendra Modi
the country of the aged is a land few people think very hard and seriously about before the time of life when they sense that they’re arriving there. Somehow, throughout much of life, being old seems to be something that happens to other people.
Maggie Scarf
When China sends over their people to negotiate, they pick their meanest, smartest, most vicious guy; and these guys, they don’t play games. They don’t laugh, they don’t cry, they have no emotion. They just want to make money, and they just want to rip our country to shreds.
Donald Trump
It’s our goddamed city! It’s our goddamed country. No terrorist can take it from us for so long as we’re free. Once we’re not free, the terrorists win! Take it back! You’re young enough and stupid enough not to know that you can’t possibly win, so you’re the only ones who can lead us to victory! Take it back!
Cory Doctorow
Other days, other ways; and, although they have now been greatly improved upon, the old country midwives did at least succeed in bringing into the world many generations of our forefathers, or where should we be now? —
Flora Thompson
My dream is to see every girl educated, in every country.
Malala Yousafzai
Developed countries and advanced developing countries must open their markets for products from the developing world, and support in developing their export and import capacity.
Anna Lindh
Let us reject violence and selfishness which could destroy our country’s unity.
Mwai Kibaki
Women and girls are naturally agents of change. If we teach one girl to code, she will go on to teach more – we’ve seen this in our own programs and workshops around the country.
Kimberly Bryant
According to the latest L.A. Times poll, 75% of Californians believe the country is headed in the wrong direction. And 60% of Californians are so disillusioned, they’re thinking about moving back to Mexico.
Jay Leno
Whether you look at these recent PISA results, which we are mediocre at best, whether you look at a 25 percent dropout rate in this country, whether you look at, in one generation, we’re not doing what we need to be doing to keep America great.
Arne Duncan
Do we wish men to be virtuous? Then let us begin by making them love their country.
Jean-Baptiste Rousseau
The Foreign Office is a very important arm of the British state and I think Britain has a fantastic diplomatic service. We are the only country in the world spending 2% of our national income on defence and 0.7% of our national income on aid. We are the only country in the world doing both of those things.
George Osborne
Love of country, subordination of personal interests to the common good, concern and care for the helpless and the impoverished – these are among the lost and faded values that we seek to recover and revitalize as we commence our journey towards a better Philippines.
Rodrigo Duterte
I don’t think Democrats are ever going to get excited about cutting Medicaid to pay for tax cuts to wealthy people. I just don’t think that’s the direction we should be going in our country. The 1 percent’s doing very well in America. They don’t need more help. But Medicaid does.
Claire McCaskill
I find it far more awesome, wonderful, that creation; our appearance in the world; should be the culmination, or at least one of the latest products of 3,000 Million years of organic evolution, than a kind of country trick, taking a rib out of a man’s side in a trance.
David Attenborough
I think the only music I didn’t listen to was country and western, and that holds to this day.
David Bowie
We are a British nation with British characteristics. Every country can take some small minorities and in many ways they add to the richness and variety of this country. The moment the minority threatens to become a big one, people get frightened.
Margaret Thatcher
My critics always forget to mention that I was democratically elected, the others were not. Everyone in Uganda can challenge me, everyone can vote, the elections are free. Not many countries have achieved what we did.
Yoweri Museveni
Freedom without the strength to support it and, if need be, defend it, would be a cruel delusion. And the strength to defend freedom can itself only come from widespread industrialisation and the infusion of modern science and technology into the country’s economic life.
Jamsetji Tata
Actually, it’s the other way round. In a poor country, the only consolation people can have is the one that comes from their beliefs.
Orhan Pamuk
Clearly while the president is overseas, he’s at a conference and while the president is overseas I think it’s appropriate that people not be critical of him or our country.
John Boehner
If al Qaeda or any other enemy of our country manages to create a situation or explode a bomb or murder or incapacitate large numbers of our people, we cannot wait for 7 weeks of a special election in order to deal with that.
Dana Rohrabacher
We are told that the possession of nuclear weapons – in some cases even the testing of these weapons – is essential for national security. But this argument can be made by other countries as well.
Joseph Rotblat
The war in Iraq is a serious situation. It’s – it involves the worst foreign policy mistake in the history of this country. So we should take everything serious. This is – we find ourselves in a very deep hole. We need to find a way to dig out of it.
Harry Reid
The love of our own language, what is it, in fact, but the love of our country expressing itself in one particular direction?
Richard Chenevix Trench
Pantomime is a big thing in the cultural calendar of my country, you know. So subtlety’s not my forte.
Alan Cumming
Let us at all times remember that all American citizens are brothers of a common country, and should dwell together in bonds of fraternal feeling.
Abraham Lincoln
Countries are different. They make different choices. We cannot harmonise everything.
David Cameron

Ambrose Bierce
I believe in the art of literature, I believe in freedom of the imagination, I believe in the kind of liberties that we enjoy in these lucky countries of the world.
Salman Rushdie
The rich do not have to invest enough in the poorest countries to make them rich; they need to invest enough so that these countries can get their foot on the economic ladder . . . Economic development works. It can be successful. It tends to build on itself. But it must get started.
Jeffrey Sachs
We argued, as did the security services in this country, that the attacks on Afghanistan and Iraq would increase the threat of terrorist attack in Britain. Tragically Londoners have now paid the price of the government ignoring such warnings.
George Galloway
The rise to prominence of the Saudi novel in Arabic is the great man-bites-dog of recent world literature. Saudi Arabia is a country without a free press, where European styles and forms are distrusted and where the female half of the population became literate only in this generation.
James Buchan
America’s in deep trouble. We don’t know what we’re doing when it comes to devaluations and all of these countries all over the world, especially China. They’re the best, the best ever at it. What they’re doing to us is a very, very sad thing.
Donald Trump
The President of the United States should strive to be always mindful of the fact that he serves his party best who serves his country best.
Rutherford B. Hayes
It is not my duty to spend my money in my country, but it is what I want to do. There is nowhere else I would like to invest.
Haile Gebrselassie
Do you know that every day, 10 people in Afghanistan are injured by landmines? It will continue for the next 50 years, because the country has the largest number of landmines in the world.
Mohsen Makhmalbaf
The Jews caused the war, the Jews caused the outbreak of thieving and robbery all over the country, the Jews caused the inefficiency of the navy
Henry Ford
All kinds of celebrities, political ones as well, are increasingly being targeted. In this country, with all the countless guns.
Cesar Romero
People ask if I miss it, but they don’t understand that American culture is so ubiquitous that there’s nothing to miss. I don’t see myself moving back. It’s not that I hate the United States. I just always thought it would be a shame not to live in a foreign country.
David Sedaris
I’m from West Virginia. If you didn’t know what was happening in NASCAR, you were on the outside. NASCAR is a big league sport, but it’s still also country and redneck.
Randy Moss
HELPED are those who love the entire cosmos rather than their own tiny country, city, or farm, for to them will be shown the unbroken web of life and the meaning of infinity.
Alice Walker
Tradition is what is in the heart and soul of your home, your country, and social environment.В  Tradition evolves, and it changes regardless of what you do to maintain it.
George Blake
I shall accord to myself the honor of inscribing myself as an applicant for the American citizenship which according to law I can obtain only after five years residence in this country. And I shall yield to no one of my future countrymen in patriotism. I consider America now my real home.
Wilhelm Steinitz
How can a country be home to sectarian militias and yet also to people who are educated, sophisticated, and pluralistic? This is not a simple matter. It’s the kind of dialectical inquiry that’s impossible to present in the world of Twitter feeds and newspapers where stories are shorter and shorter and more simplistic.
Annia Ciezadlo
The message is NAFTA (the North American Free Trade Agreement) is there. NAFTA has helped both our countries enormously. We live up to the terms of NAFTA. We ask you, our best friend and most important trading partner to do the same thing.
Anne McLellan
The security of our country is not just a top priority, it’s the top priority.
J. D. Hayworth
But I am not discouraged. I do not despair for our country. I believe tonight, as I always have, that the essential decency, compassion and common sense of the American people will prevail.
Jimmy Carter
I can’t imagine there has ever been a more gratifying time or place to be alive than America in the 1950s. No country had ever known such prosperity.
Bill Bryson
One of the things that bothers me most is the growing belief in the country that security is more important than freedom. It ain’t.
Lyn Nofziger
By their complying with your request to leave they [the Saints in Clay County] are surrendering some of the dearest rights guaranteed in the Constitution of our country; and that human nature can be driven to a certain extent when it will yield no further.
Joseph Smith, Jr.
Saying he is in Afghanistan in a spirit of brotherhood, we have also vowed that we will not allow each other’s countries, ever, to be used against interests of ours.
Pervez Musharraf
The Pledge clearly acknowledges the fact that our freedoms in this country come from God, not government.
Jay Sekulow
I’m sorry that government involves filling out a lot of forms. … I’m sorry myself that we’re not still on the frontier, where we could all tote guns, shoot anything that moved and spit to our hearts’ content. But we live in a diverse and crowded country, and with civilization comes regulation.
Molly Ivins
These acts of mass murder were intended to frighten our nation into chaos and retreat.But they have failed; our country is strong.
George W. Bush
The US is not a superpower. The US is a financially dependent country that foreign lenders can close down at will. Washington still hasn’t learned this. American hubris can lead the administration and Congress into a bailout solution that the rest of the world, which has to finance it, might not accept.
Paul Craig Roberts
My feeling is that the Supreme Court reached a reasonable standard of protection of speech in the 1960s, a standard higher than any other country in the world, to my knowledge. In brief, speech should be protected up to participation in imminent criminal action.
Noam Chomsky
Every political contest is hard, that’s part of the DNA in America. We make it really tough to run for and hold the highest and hardest job in our country.
Hillary Clinton
I forget what his name was, but Tucker Carlson said, “Well, look, do you think that anybody who wants to come into the country should be allowed?” He said, “Yes. Anybody who wants to come to America should be allowed to come to America. That’s what America’s for.”
Rush Limbaugh
Do you want Columbus to go across the ocean, or do you want to put a message in a bottle and hope that it lands somewhere? I’d rather have actual people be there. Whether they look like Americans or like the inhabitants of some other country, depends on who has the most drive.
Kevin J. Anderson
Do not lounge in the cities! There is room & health in the country, away from the crowds of idlers & imbeciles. Go west, before you are fitted for no life but that of the factory.
Horace Greeley
If Cuba wants normal relations, there’s certain things they need to do like become a normal country that respects the rights of their citizens.
Marco Rubio
I have no idea who’s steering, and I don’t really care .. I just keep going whatever the inclination is … there are threads that are continuous and hold everything together and a major thread is country music.
Neil Young
We Americans live in a nation where the medical-care system is second to none in the world, unless you count maybe 25 or 30 little scuzzball countries like Scotland that we could vaporize in seconds if we felt like it.
Dave Barry
We are fifty or a hundred years behind the advanced countries. We must make good this distance in ten years. Either we do it, or they will crush us.
Joseph Stalin
There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities.
Theodore Roosevelt
If ‘Mystery Train’ is my Nixon book and ‘Lipstick Traces’ my Reagan book, ‘Invisible Republic’ is my Bill Clinton book. I really liked Clinton. He made me proud to be part of this country again. For all of his failings, the way he put all that he’d done in jeopardy, I supported him from beginning to end.
Greil Marcus
There is no chance for the welfare of the world unless the condition of woman is improved. It is not possible for a bird to fly on only one wing.
There is no hope for that family or country where there is no estimation of women, where they live in sadness. For this reason, they have to be raised first.
Swami Vivekananda
I’m always told that what I say is controversial. Why is it controversial? Because I speak from a tradition that has now fallen out of favor with the dominant media in this country. And so when I say things like marriage should be between one man and one woman, I’m called a bigot.
Rick Santorum
Sense can support herself handsomely in most countries on some eighteen pence a day; but for fantasy, planets and solar systems, will not suffice.
Thomas B. Macaulay
I don’t think Kenya is the only country that tries to induce amnesia – it seems to be a global phenomenon. But offenses do not die. They do not disappear.
Yvonne Adhiambo Owuor
To kill a citizen of our own country is evil, but to kill a citizen of another country is ‘good.’
Edgar Mitchell
Cross country skiing is great if you live in a small country.
Steven Wright
We will have an unchallenged, open, panoramic opportunity on a global scale to demonstrate the finest aspects of what we know in this country: peace, freedom, democracy, human rights, benevolent sharing, love, the easing of human suffering.
Is that going to be our list of priorities or not?
Jimmy Carter
Patriotism should be sought for and will be found in right living. No man can be a good Latter-day Saint and not be true to the best interests and general welfare of his country.
Joseph Smith, Jr.
I know the polling data shows people have a negative view but if you listen to everything out there, you think, my God. We’re in such deep trouble. We created more jobs than every other industrial country in the world combined.
Joe Biden
It is here we come to the heart of the matter. The economic principle of comparative advantage’, ‘a country may, in return for manufactured commodities, import corn even if it can be grown with less labour than in the country from which it is imported
David Ricardo
The ’20s ended in an era of extravagance, sort of like the one we’re in now. There was a big crash, but then the country picked itself up again, and we had some great years. Those were the days when American believed in itself. I was happy and proud to be painting it.
Norman Rockwell
I just feel happy to be in America, like I said, it’s the most beautiful country in the world.
Ahmed Ali
I don’t actually subscribe to the view that all power corrupts. But absolute power – when secured on the back of massive parliamentary majorities, which don’t reflect the balance of political opinion in the country – can corrupt absolutely.
Charles Kennedy
As the country now turns a new leaf, our ambition is to give hope to each and every Afghan.
Hamid Karzai
Garth, marriage is punishment for shoplifting in some countries!
Wayne Campbell
… any citizen should be willing to give all that he has to give his country in work or sacrifice in times of crisis.
Eleanor Roosevelt
Every day, in every city and town across the country, police officers are performing vital services that help make their communities safer.
Eric Schneiderman
The United States was the first country to recognize Israel in 1948, minutes after its declaration of independence, and the deep bonds of friendship between the U.S. and Israel remain as strong and unshakeable as ever.
Barack Obama
I begin to suspect that England is the most melancholy country in the world.
Natalia Ginzburg
There are many evils in this country. The only remedy for every one of them is freedom for the nation.
Kalki Krishnamurthy
The “patron saint” of Japanese quality control, ironically, is an American named W. Edwards Deming, who was virtually unknown in his own country until his ideas of quality control began to make such a big impact on Japanese companies.
Akio Morita
I think when he [Vladimir Putin] calls me brilliant I will take the compliment, okay? I mean, the man has very strong control over a country. Now, it’s a very different system and I don’t happen to like the system. But certainly in that system, he has been a leader far more than our president has been a leader.
Donald Trump
I’m just another Opry entertainer. I’m not the start of the Opry, and I’m not the ending. I’m not the Alpha, and I’m not the Omega. It’s been a pleasure taking part in the Opry and country music these many years. I’m part of a big operation.
Roy Acuff
I love mythology, grew up loving it. I’m a middle kid, big family, that’s the thing you did in the farm country. I lived in Iowa, I loved mythology. I don’t know, we’re like that.
Kellan Lutz
My sister and the baby she was carrying died in the United States of America. They died in the country that spends more money on pregnancy and birth technology than any other country in this world.
Robin Lim
This is the most generous country in the world when it comes to immigration. There are a million people a year who legally immigrate to the United States, and people feel like we’re being taken advantage of.
Marco Rubio
Since 9/11 the United States has been followed by countries with bad records, such as the former Soviet Union countries, into erosions of human rights. Because the United States has changed its standards it is undermining civil liberties elsewhere.
Mary Robinson
[Completely bored by a country weekend, wiring to a friend:] For heaven’s sake, rush me a loaf of bread, enclosing saw and file.
Dorothy Parker
Clearly North Korea is a very strange situation because it is such an isolated country run by a handful of dictators, or maybe just one, who seems to be somewhat paranoid. And, who had nuclear weapons.
Bernie Sanders
What is being said in media in other parts of the world is very different from what we’ve been told in this country throughout these years between September 11 and today.
Bianca Jagger
To me a lawyer is basically the person that knows the rules of the country. We’re all throwing the dice, playing the game, moving our pieces around the board, but if there’s a problem, the lawyer is the only person that has actually read the inside of the top of the box.
Jerry Seinfeld
I never thought I’d be in a family that has more people than a small country.
Scott Disick
And I think to be in NATO for the countries of our region, it means more guarantees for us, it means more responsibility for our common security, but it means fulfillment of all standards of civilized world, like protection of human rights and democratic mechanisms.
Aleksander Kwasniewski
Tony Blair and Gordon Brown committed to John Major’s spending envelopes in 1997. No-one said that Tony Blair and John Major were identical. This happens quite often that parties actually, despite all the sound and fury, agree on the overall need to make sure that we live within our means as a country.
Nick Clegg
Never forget that we were enslaved in this country longer than we have been free. Never forget that for 250 years black people were born into chains-whole generations followed by more generations who knew nothing but chains.
Ta-Nehisi Coates
I had a friend write me that our music was being played at Gay Pride in New York, which is a big compliment. In the biggest city in the country with the most culture and the most grit – I love it.
Jennifer Nettles
Every successful social movement in this country’s history has used disruption as a strategy to fight for social change. Whether it was the Boston Tea Party to the sit-ins at lunch counters throughout the South, no change has been won without disruptive action.
Alicia Garza
I get paid to lie to people as an actor. Country music is the one area that I don’t lie. I tell the truth.
Christian Kane
If we lose our morality, we will lose our country. It will happen.
Phil Robertson
I think the water dictates how food will taste in a country. In England the apples taste unlike apples grown in any other place. England is an island, there’s a lot of salt in the air and in the water. I think that has something to do with it.
Gael Garcia Bernal
For two summers not a blue wing, not a blue warble. I seemed to miss something kindred and precious from my environment–the visible embodiment of the tender sky and wistful soil. What a loss, I said, to coming generations of dwellers in the country–no bluebird in spring!
John Burroughs
When a man is to travel into a far country…one staff in his hand may comfortably support him, but a bundle of staves would be troublesome. Thus a competency of these outward things may happily help us in the way to heaven, whereas abundance may be hurtful.
Richard Sibbes
It is violence when we use a sharp word, when we make a gesture to brush away a person. So violence isn’t merely organized butchery in the name of God, in the name of society or country. Violence is much more subtle, much deeper.
Jiddu Krishnamurti
The government is determined to continue the process of fiscal consolidation and structural reform in order to secure sound public finances and improve the country’s international competitiveness.
Lucas Papademos
The contrast between Hillary Clinton, a champion for women and families versus Donald Trump who has alienated women across the country with his offensive and insulting rhetoric, could not be clearer.
Stephanie Schriock
Composers and musicians have always starved and, as this is a sentimental country, we think the tradition should be continued.
Thomas Beecham
Hardworking Americans are fighting every day to provide for themselves and their families, and leave a more prosperous country for the next generation.
Luis Fortuno
The idea of defending, as integral parts of our Empire, countries 10,000 miles off, like Australia, which neither pay a shilling to our revenue… nor afford us any exclusive trade… is about as quixotic a specimen of national folly as was ever exhibited.
Richard Cobden
There are a lot of killers. We’ve got a lot of killers. What do you think? Our country’s so innocent?
Donald Trump
After Donald Trump`s ban all Muslims proposal, candidate Jeb Bush reacted by calling Mr. Trump unhinged. However, that would be the same Jeb Bush who says we should only allow refugees into this country who are Christians.
Rachel Maddow
There are a number of steps that we can take to reinvigorate and rebuild the economic and the physical infrastructure of our country and then to rebuild us, frankly, on a spiritual level.
Carol Moseley Braun
If anyone has a new idea in this country, there are twice as many people who keep putting a man with a red flag in front of it.
Prince Philip
Help is even being offered from across the ocean, as over two dozen countries have stepped forward to offer financial and material support to the American people.
Jo Bonner
I know it’s going to be the private sector that leads this country out of the current economic times we’re in. You can spend your money better than the government can spend your money.
George W. Bush
Why aren’t more gems from our great authors scattered over the country? Great books aren’t within everybody’s reach.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge
I will reform our broken visa system. Nearly half of the people in this country illegally came here on legal visas and simply never left. We need to fix that.
Carly Fiorina
The country is facing a fiscal crisis, and the United States Senate is at the center of the debate about how to bring federal spending under control.
Jeff Flake
I feel if theres one little thing I could do, its to make people realize: We are not worthless because we inhabit a country which is seen by Western eyes as a primitive, fundamentalist country only. . .I mean, we are a rich mixture of all sorts of forces as well, and our lives are very much worth living.
Bapsi Sidhwa
Why does no one speak of the cultural advantages of the country? For example, is a well groomed, ecologically kept, sustainably fertile farm any less cultural, any less artful, than paintings of fat angels on church ceilings?
Gene Logsdon
[Hillary Clinton] is been honest about how many people she wants to enter the country unquestioned, unvetted, both illegal immigrants and refugees.
Rush Limbaugh
The Russian empire under czars and commissars has been hard to deal with for other countries.
Henry A. Kissinger
Our country doesn’t win anymore. We don’t win on trade. We don’t win on the military. We can’t defeat ISIS. We’re not taking care of our great people, the veterans. We’re not taking care of them.
Donald Trump
Short-sighted and impatient efforts to wipe out poverty by severing the connection between effort and reward can only lead to the growth of a totalitarian state, and destroy the economic progress that this country has so dearly bought.
Henry Hazlitt
…all members of Congress should be required wear NASCAR uniforms. You know, the kind with the patches? That way we’d know who is sponsoring each of them. I think he was kidding; they’d never be able to do it but it’s a great idea and would wake people up in this country.
Brad Thor
Even in this secular country, the threat posed by religious fundamentalists is never very far away. Every major religious text exhorts the same principles – that of unyielding obedience to a supernatural being, and renunciation of the intellect and personal aspirations.
Andrew Bernstein
Carlyle uttered a pregnant truth when he said that the history of any country is in the biographies of the men who made it.
Andrew Dickson White
I don’t think Metallica sits around all day wondering why country music fans don’t embrace them.
Anthony Jeselnik
Country music historically has been sort of middle-aged people’s music.
John Shelton Reed
Ninth generation American, ma’am, and I’m the first one in my family born with all my rights. I’m a ninth generation American. And so we have not escaped because I went to Yale all the problems of this country.
Van Jones
We must renew democracy itself. We have to fight cynicism and inertia and restore faith in the advancement of our country.
Paul Wellstone
I grew up pretty much prevented from knowing anything from Communist China except that they were the bad guys that stole our country.
Ang Lee
Boris [Johnson] was cavalier with assurances he made. We’re picking a prime minister here to lead the country, not a school prefect.
Dominic Raab
Fashion is about so much more than just a pretty pair of pumps or the perfect hemline. For so many people across the country, it is a calling, it is a career, and it’s a way they feed their families.
Michelle Obama
We have our roots in country, and that’s our foundation, but we pull from a lot.
Dave Haywood
It’s important to begin to even consider whether countries can become something that looks very different because people tend to take their countries for granted.
Juan Enriquez
A generous spirit prefers that his country should be poor, and weak, and of no account, but free, rather than powerful, prosperous, and enslaved.
Lord Acton
Saudia Arabia takes in half a trillion dollars every year in oil revenue, and the country has a population smaller than New York state, but when your system of government is an eleventh century monarchy, someone’s going to end up poor, and it’s not gonna be the guy whose first name is King.
Craig Ferguson
The amount of U.S. debt held by countries such as China and Japan is at a historic high, with foreign investors holding half of America’s publicly held debt. This dependence raises the specter that other nations will be able to influence our policies in ways antithetical to American interests.
Evan Bayh
Within 2 years Im predicting…that youre going to see a suitcase nuke in this country. Youre probably going to see a release in a few years of something communicable. & I am predicting that you will see a lot of conventional bombings…in the next year or so.
Alex Jones
God is at home. We are in the far country.
Meister Eckhart
Canada is not so much a country as a clothesline nearly 4,000 miles long. St John’s in Newfoundland is closer to Milan, Italy than to Vancouver.
Simon Hoggart
I always see America as really belonging to the Native Americans. Even though I’m American, I still feel like a visitor in my own country.
Nicolas Cage
The world doesn’t just revolve around you. There’s a lot of talk in this country about the federal deficit. But I think we should talk more about our empathy deficit.
Barack Obama
I drove across country in my yellow 1970 VW bug (which I drove until 1986) to Los Angeles, having had enough cold weather in 5 years in Ann Arbor, and found a job within a few days.
W. Richard Stevens
We as Americans believe it’s OK to kill people. We believe it’s OK to invade a country that had nothing to do with 9/11. We think it’s OK to invade a country where we think Osama Bin Laden is and he’s in the other country. So we just go in and we just kill. And we have the death penalty, we sanction it.
Michael Moore
Yeah, that’s what kind of, we get the idea a little bit yeah, because other people from different countries also try as hard as they can to get a medal or a gold medal in the Olympic Games. And you know, if they can work hard, we can work hard as well.
Inge de Bruijn
Peace consists, very largely, in the fact of desiring it with all one’s soul. The inhabitants of my small country, Costa Rica, have realized those words by Erasmus. Mine is an unarmed people, whose children have never seen a fighter or a tank or a warship.
Oscar Arias
It is a sweet and seemly thing to die for one’s country.
There has never been a protracted war from which a country has benefitted.
Sun Tzu
All men are by nature conservative but conservatism in the military profession is a source of danger to the country. One must be ready to change his line sharply and suddenly, with no concern for the prejudices and memories of what was yesterday. To rest upon formula is a slumber that, prolonged, means death.
Hyman Rickover
The sea always offers up incredible stories of survivors’ fortitude. Myths of a lot of countries have variations on that.
Colin Farrell
Deep down I have this atavistic feeling that really I should be in the country.
Penelope Lively
You’ll be my glass of wine
I’ll be your shot of whiskey
Blake Shelton
I nauseate walking; ’tis a country diversion, I loathe the country.
William Congreve
I’ve been to Egypt, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, and Kuwait for brief visits at conferences, and they are very interesting countries.
Samuel P. Huntington
I can express no better hope for my country than that the kind Providence which smiled upon our fathers may enable their children to preserve the blessings they have inherited.
Franklin Pierce
A foreign country can best be understood through its literature.
Simone de Beauvoir
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.
Grover Norquist
Well, if you don’t have a flag, then you can’t have a country. Those are the rules… that I just made up!
Eddie Izzard
Primroses and landscapes, he pointed out, have one grave defect: they are gratuitous. A love of nature keeps no factories busy. It was decided to abolish the love of nature, at any rate among the lower classes. . . . it was essential that they should keep on going to the country, even though they hated it.
Aldous Huxley
Behind the murder of millions of Negroes annually in Africa is the well organized system of exploitation by the alien intruders who desire to rob Africa of every bit of its wealth for the satisfaction of their race and the upkeep of their bankrupt European countries.
Marcus Garvey
[Tibet] is a small country based on religious principle, religious traditions. It never wanted any conquest.
Elie Wiesel
There is not a revolution that succe Saudi Arabia paid $7 billion for the Salafists to come, and the United States and Israel are pouring a lot of money into Egypt. Why? To divide the country by religion.
Nawal El Saadawi
George Washington’s brother, Lawrence, was the Uncle of Our Country.
George Carlin
The majority of people in developed countries spend at least some time interacting with the Internet, and Governments are abusing that necessity in secret to extend their powers beyond what is necessary and appropriate.
Edward Snowden
The cowboy doesn’t need an iron horse, but covers his country on one that eats grass and wears hair.
Charles Marion Russell
One of the interesting things about having an international fanbase is that every single country has a different reaction to you and to the movie.
Robert Pattinson
This has got to be the greatest school for lab bands in the country. It’s great because Leon Breeden and his staff have devoted their lives – not just their time and talent – to build it.
Louie Bellson
No man is a hero in his own country.
John Monash
Culture shock is often felt sharply at the borders between countries, but sometimes it doesn’t hit fully until you’ve been in a place for a long time.
Henri Cartier-Bresson
It is in that English Parliament the chains for Ireland are forged, and any Irish patriot who goes into that forge to free Ireland will soon find himself welded into the agency of his country’s subjection to England.
Jeremiah O’Donovan Rossa
I realized that there was a thrilling undiscovered country to be explored in the mechanisms of the mammalian nervous system. Through it, one might approach the mystery of the mind.
Wilder Penfield
My father asserted that there was no better place to bring up a family than in a rural environment…. There’s something about getting up at 5 a.m., feeding the stock and chickens, and milking a couple of cows before breakfast that gives you a lifelong respect for the price of butter and eggs.
Bill Vaughan
It takes a man of genius to travel in his own country, in his native village; to make any progress between his door and his gate.
Henry David Thoreau
The relations between countries in the coming decade are most likely to reflect their cultural commitments, their cultural ties and antagonism with other countries.
Samuel P. Huntington
What really intrigues me is that the totality of all possible Nows of any definite kind has a very special structure. You can think of it as a landscape or country. Each point in the country is a Now.
Julian Barbour
The Syrian war was started and fueled by three countries in the region, namely Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Turkey. They acted for the sake of political and economic dominance and in favor of Sunni Islam against the Alawite influence in the government of Syria.
Burhan Sonmez
The national dish of Scotland is something called haggis, the specific ingredients of which I won’t go into other than to say that if you can visualize boiled, inside-out road kill, you’re pretty close.
David Grimes
Sudan, I’ve come to discover, is a country which, once it gets hold of you, does not let go.
Eric Reeves
Everything now, we must assume, is in our hands; we have no right to assume otherwise. If we do not falter in our duty now, we may be able, handful that we are, to end the racial nightmare, and achieve our country, and change the history of the world.
James A. Baldwin
During the 1960s, and again in the 1970s, growth in manufacturing productivity in the United Kingdom was the lowest of all the seven major industrial countries in the world. During the 1980s, our annual rate of growth of output per head in manufacturing has been the highest of all the seven major industrial countries.
Nigel Lawson
We should know why paternalism, collectivism, or unnecessary federal supervision will hold our standard of living down and reduce productivity just as it has in every country where it has been tried. We should also know why the communist leaders consider socialism the highroad to communism.
Ezra Taft Benson
I’ve campaigned for people. I’ve campaigned across the country for people. I have supported people in local elections. I do work with groups and causes. So, I feel like I am a participant and a civically-engaged citizen.
Caroline Kennedy
If you are obliged to neglect any thing, let it be your chemistry. It is the least useful and the least amusing to a country gentleman of all the ordinary branches of science.
Thomas Jefferson
I think we forget that, for a really long time, this country has been a place that has welcomed many refugees who have made it home and have tremendously contributed to this country.
Ilhan Omar
One of the things that defines a country song for me is that it’s honest. It’s not putting on a tuxedo to go eat at the Burger King. It’s about a song being emotionally true to itself.
Kristian Bush
Here’s the truth. The proposed top rate of income tax is not 50 per cent. It is 50 per cent plus 1.5 per cent national insurance paid by employees plus 13.3 per cent paid by employers. That’s not 50 per cent. Two years from now, Britain will have the highest tax rate on earned income of any developed country.
Andrew Lloyd Webber
We cannot shun our values as an immigrant nation. This is a wrong path. And while possibly it is a short-term political victory based on division and based on creating a wedge issue that splits people in this country, it is a long-term defeat for this Nation.
Raul Grijalva
What this country needs is a really good 5-cent cigar
Thomas R. Marshall
The country is in an extraordinary ferment.
William Hamilton Maxwell
In countries where associations are free, secret societies are unknown. In America there are factions, but no conspiracies.
Alexis de Tocqueville
The greatest menace in this country is not the bootlegger, but the college professor who rejects the Bible and undermines the faith of the young.
Arno C. Gaebelein
It’s a good country for myths. Things seem to take root here.
Diana Gabaldon
Workplaces need to respond to the reality of family life in the 21st century, and allowing employees to have seven sick days a year is a bare minimum, the fact that the United States is one of just a handful of countries that does not require paid family or sick leave is nothing short of shameful.
Rosa DeLauro
By focusing on the community, you can learn more about the whole country.
Ellen Page
Put on top of that the fact that the whole world is looking at Britain and saying how is this country going to pay its way in the future. They are looking at other countries like Greece who can’t pay their way in the future and you see savage spending cuts, big cuts in pay.
George Osborne
I realised, of course, that other people used these roads; but that night, it seemed to me these dark byways of the country existed just for the likes of us, while the big glittering motorways with their huge signs and super cafes were for everyone else.
Kazuo Ishiguro
I know that I can save this country and that no one else can.
William Pitt, 1st Earl of Chatham
We have to look at it country by country. In places like the developing world where, as you say, in Mumbai, it’s about five hours’ gap between what a woman does and a man does. You have to start by recognizing the problem and talking about it, trying to change those roles.
Melinda Gates
When the Berlin Wall fell and suddenly all those countries had burgeoning democracies, women were still being left out. The big turning point, about ten years ago, was moving from a notion of empowering women to actually looking at where you can make the most difference, and it’s in a girl’s life.
Kathy Calvin
Senator John Kerry released his plan today to eliminate the deficit. He said all we have to do is find a really rich country like Switzerland and marry it.
Jay Leno
This film cost $31 million. With that kind of money I could have invaded some country.
Clint Eastwood
You watch the country-music awards that they show on the television, and you see country music has reached about 1985. It’s all huge processed drum sounds and chiming chorus guitars and programmed synths bobbling along in the background.
Andy Partridge
We cannot suffer a person by his affidavit to arraign the whole justice of the country and its administration.
Tony Abbott
Today we thank God for all the blessings He has bestowed upon this great Country and ask Him to continue to heal our land and meet our needs – and we do so through the power of prayer.
Nick Rahall
The obese are eating the worst diet in the country if you define
worse as ratio of calories to essential micronutrients. They’re just eating
empty calories.
Bruce Ames
The changes I envisage and that I have promised to address within my first 90 days in office are; Dismantling the cabals of tribalism that are choking our country and resulting in runaway corruption and frustration for the people of Kenya.
Raila Odinga
In all countries where nature does the most, man does the least.
Charles Caleb Colton
Made me feel ashamed of belonging to these overpowering, technical superior countries fighting against what seemed to me quite defenseless people.
George Blake
There is a much cheaper way, less complicated way to bring Iraq and Saddam Hussein to its knees: it is simply to send the Bush economic team over there and let them run the country.
John F. Kerry
Recruiters in our country are known for lying to people.
Cindy Sheehan
Let’s help people in this country with the resources we have.
Dennis Kucinich
There is no Thanksgiving back in the old country where I come from. You know why? Because being thankful is a sin.
Craig Ferguson
My father’s biggest achievement was to motivate the South Korean people, to show them we could become prosperous if we worked hard. He taught me to love my country, and serve my country.
Park Geun-hye
The teachers of this country, one may say, have its future in their hands.
William James
My introduction to track racing was through the background of cross country running, which is not a sport perhaps as popular in America as it is in England.
Roger Bannister
In general, I do not agree with spying against one’s country.
Melita Norwood
I think there are a lot of opportunities in the Americas that matter deeply to 45 million Latinos in this country, and I would hope to be able to work to maybe elevate the profile of the Americas in our discussion about American global leadership.
Tim Kaine
There was unusual unanimity on our pastoral responsibility to care for the immigrants in our midst no matter their country of origin or religious affiliation.
Wilton Daniel Gregory
Call it democracy, or call it democratic socialism, but there must be a better distribution of wealth within this country for all God’s children.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
If there had never been the Great Migration there would never have been jazz, there would never have been Michelle Obama. A lot of amazing black people exist in this country because of the Great Migration. That’s nation-building.
Ayana Mathis
[Hillary Clinton] has been a woman in the public eye for decades now. She’s been insulted, demeaned, and attacked for all this time, and she still wants to lead this country – and fight for the things she believes in. Not only do we agree on the issues, but I really think she’s the right person to get things done.
Chrissy Teigen
It’s good for a country to have a revolution every 20 years. I hope that’s not where we’re going. But, you know, if this Congress keeps going the way it is, people are really looking toward those Second Amendment remedies.
Sharron Angle
America has given me so much, and I feel so strongly that it’s my turn to give back to the country that I love.
Donald Trump
All countries will inevitably have to do what Russia has done.
Vladimir Lenin
I think we’re very uptight in America. You have to remember that we’re descended from Puritans. Whether or not the country is now composed of immigrants, our culture as American really begins with the landing of the Pilgrims and a puritanical view of things.
Tom Ford
The union of the states is indissoluble; the country is undivided and indivisible forever.
David Dudley Field II
To be an ally is a formal military alliance. And we have a formal military alliance in NATO. But we are partners with other countries all across the world. And they’re – they will be a partner.
Joe Biden
I think country music is a champion of women. That stuff coming out of Nashville now wants to see a woman looking good in the kitchen whipping up some biscuits.
Ketch Secor
I believe the team of Tony Abbott and Julia Gillard is the best leadership team for the Liberal Party and therefore part of the best leadership team of the Coalition for the country.
Kevin Andrews
The Taliban has asked Osama bin Laden to voluntarily leave the country.They said they delivered him a note asking him to leave, which is a pretty goodtrick considering they claim they don’t even know where he is.
Jay Leno
You know those Navy SEALs, they weren’t Democrats and Republicans. They were just doing what was best for America. Wouldn’t that be a great country if all of you Americans were just like that? You followed orders, you marched in step and you followed my agenda.
Jonah Goldberg
Comfort has its place, but it seems rude to visit another country dressed as if you’ve come to mow its lawns.
David Sedaris
We face a climate crisis now that is the most serious challenge our civilization has ever confronted. And the greatest country in the world [America] has to remain a part of this unprecedented global agreement to deal with it.
Al Gore
The Democrats cannot find Romney fingerprints on what’s happening to this country. Every fingerprint is Barack Obama’s, Joe Biden’s, Nancy Pelosi’s, Harry Reid’s, Barney Frank’s, you name it, Eric Holder.
Rush Limbaugh
The Obama administration is an affront to every freedom-loving American,and a threat to every private sector job in this country.
Rick Perry
We in this country have to make up our minds — — we can not have it both ways: we cannot be both drug-free and free.
Lester Grinspoon
This patriotic revolution where people want to find their own identity are not racist but want to fight for the preservation of their own people. Their own country, their own values. Their own money. Their own borders. This is such a positive thing.
Geert Wilders
No two countries are identical, and obviously, there’s a difference between a referendum on a very complex relationship between Great Britain and the rest of Europe, and a presidential election in the United States.
Barack Obama
He could tell her he loved her. He ached to shout it out loud for the gods and everyone to hear. Little good it would do. Better to trust in the moon’s promises than in the word of the Thief of Eddis. He was famous in three countries for his lies.
Megan Whalen Turner
I feel like fans who like old Southern rock and country, and more lyric-driven songs in general, have come to country radio. I think that’s why you see country radio growing and albums selling: People are craving a little more of the singer-songwriter stuff going on in country.
Charles Kelley
It seemed to me that I had come for the first time close to the soil of my native country, and could feel for the first time running in my veins Russia’s vastness, her potency, her strength.
Grand Duchess Maria Alexandrovna of Russia
Unemployment is due to the large import of goods from Britain and other countries. The Government haven’t used the powers which they have for the benefit of the country.
Eamon de Valera
I have chosen to kneel because I simply cannot stand for the kind of oppression this country is allowing against its own people.
Megan Rapinoe
It was an enormous mistake for us to try to occupy that country after June of 2003. We have to pull back, and we have to recognize it.
Newt Gingrich
The killers have built the society. The whole Indonesia is their platform. They run the country. They run the country.
Joshua Oppenheimer
I’d always somehow felt slightly as if I’d been born in the wrong country.
Christopher Hitchens
The US has attacked countries like Grenada, Panama, Libya… the list of victims of US terrorism is almost infinite. And the US government’s participation in torture, whether in El Salvador, Guatemala, Chile… is well-documented and widely known.
Assata Shakur
I’m probably the only bottom-heavy golfer in the country.
Jack Nicklaus
Departure beyond the borders of my country is for me equivalent to death.
Boris Pasternak
And I keep saying, whether you like the president or not, everybody has to pull together and help the president because, as the president goes, so goes the country, as the country goes, so goes your job, your ability to feed your family, your government.
Michael Bloomberg
Capitalism in the United States has undergone profound modification, not just under the New Deal but through a consensus that continued to grow after the New Deal. Government in the U.S. today is a senior partner in every business in the country.
Norman Cousins
China is one of the greatest cultures on Earth, and it is one of those countries that suffered immensely from colonialist horrors and humiliation.
Andre Vltchek
You don’t ask people about the immigration policies of the U.K. or their country’s agricultural policy. Instead, you talk to them about the meal they’re eating or their family, and from that you get the sense of another human being, someone we can all relate to.
Michael Palin
Every age is an unknown country.
Eleanor Roosevelt
Every country is like a particular type of person. America is like a belligerent, adolescent boy; Canada is like an intelligent, 35-year-old woman. Australia is like Jack Nicholson. It comes right up to you and laughs very hard in your face in a highly threatening and engaging manner.
Douglas Adams
The message for the American youth is that this is a great country and we need to make sure that we pass on a heritage, a lineage and a legacy of American exceptionalism to each and everyone of you so that you can enjoy all the great liberties and freedoms that all the previous generations have had.
Allen West
If you are waging peace, you can’t be too particular sometimes about the special attitudes that different countries take. We were a young country once, and our whole policy for the first 150 years was, we were neutral.
Dwight D. Eisenhower
My dad taught me to play the guitar. We grew up with country music. We had every Willie Nelson record (laughs). I was saved at a young age and had a great desire to follow God. I was really focused on that through my whole life, even as a kid and through high school.
Chris Tomlin
all I wanted to do was sneak out into the night and disappear somewhere, and go and find out what everybody was doing all over the country.
Jack Kerouac
Many Sunnis, who are still stuck in the Saddam era mindset and believe Iraq belongs to them, are trying to prevent a new country from developing at all.
Brent Scowcroft
For me, there will be no enemies but unemployment, the deficit, excessive debt, economic stagnation and anything else that keeps our country in these critical circumstances.
Mariano Rajoy
Every indication is that the Sudanese government will be defining it as an Arab, Muslim country. But there are also a lot of Christians and a lot of people, like the Nuba, who are not Arab. And that is why it is going to be problematic that Sudan will be defined in this way.
Rebecca Hamilton
Chinese are already more on board than we are. China is the only country that actually discussed in formal government documents how important it is to control the size of your populations if you’re going to limit emissions.
Paul R. Ehrlich
Whatever happens in the country, whatever warfare harasses our land, we will never relinquish our hold on Western learning. As long as this school of ours stands, Japan remains a civilized nation of the world.
Fukuzawa Yukichi
I think that if the political and social movement groups and organizations that operate in this country today had the same kind of energetic commitment that the medical marijuana people have, many things could change in this country.
John Trudell
I want to see an open and tolerant society here in the United Kingdom, I want to see a country that works for everyone whatever their background.
Theresa May
In all honesty, I’m not really familiar with Stevie Wonder’s music, since country is more of my style. I really have no idea what I am doing.
Kellie Pickler
I think we’re all a little afraid of the dark. If you lived in the country, as I did, there’s nothing quite like country dark, which was really black. And as a child, your imagination runs wild.
Malcolm McDowell
We have a lot of options. America is a great country.
Jim Courier
At the end of the day, if millions of people come together and say, we are not going to be a xenophobic society, we are not going to be throwing millions of Latinos out of this country, we are not going to be a racist society, we’re not going to be a sexist society, we will prevail.
Bernie Sanders
When I think of civil liberties I think of the founding principles of the country. The freedoms that are in the First Amendment. But also the fundamental right to privacy.
Tim Cook
We profess to be strangers and pilgrims, seeking after a country of our own, yet we settle down in the most un-stranger-like fashion, exactly as if we were quite at home and meant to stay as long as we could. I don’t wonder apostolic miracles have died. Apostolic living certainly has.
Amy Carmichael
Be a best friend. Tell the truth. And overuse “I love you”
Lee Brice
It was as if we had beaten a country, more than just a football team.
Diego Maradona
Investing in girls’ education is the very best thing we can do, not just for our daughters and granddaughters, but for their families, their communities, and their countries.
Michelle Obama
City people try to buy time as a rule, when they can, whereas country people are prepared to kill time, although both try to cherish in their mind’s eye the notion of a better life ahead.
Edward Hoagland
Such poverty as we have today in all our great cities degrades the poor, and infects with its degradation the whole neighborhood in which they live. And whatever can degrade a neighborhood can degrade a country and a continent and finally the whole civilized world, which is only a large neighborhood.
George Bernard Shaw
If you want to live in ‘white world,’ if you want to experience the stultifying boredom and penetrating ennui that homogeneity can bring, you can go to Canada any day of the year. It’s an entire country named Doug.
Greg Proops
We live in a country where a small number of people have incredible wealth and power. America has more income and wealth inequality than any other major country.
Bernie Sanders
How many thousands of [lives] are there every year that comes cast away, (in all civilized countries at least)–and consider’d asnothing but common air, in competition of an hypothesis.
Laurence Sterne
Our first Prime Minister saw a country that would be known for its generosity of spirit. And so it is.
Kim Campbell
If we love our country, we should also love our countrymen.
Ronald Reagan
As a small country, both in size and population, our future hinges on the quality of our people.
Hassanal Bolkiah
The deer season just opened. A deer hunter in Ventura Country brought in his first man yesterday.
Will Rogers
In other countries, congenital introverts simply remain introverts all their lives, neither advancing nor retreating, but America’s commitment to extroversion as a national art form can abrade some naturally aloof personalities until they flower into deadly nightshade.
Florence King
Oh, do you want protectionism? No, I don’t. I just don’t want to give my country away to China.
Gerald Celente
I’m so over the moon that I have the opportunity to represent my country at a third Olympic Games.
Libby Trickett
What is music. A passion for colonies not a love of country.
Gertrude Stein
I want to share with the American people that President Bush and the Republican majority in just 4 years have borrowed $1.05 trillion from foreign nations. That is selling our country to other nations because of the spending that is going on.
Kendrick Meek
If you ask me the image of Latin America, there are sorne countries which oppress their peoples much more, and among the less – least oppressive, among those with which we could have perfectly normal relations without any difficulties – we could have Uruguay, Chile, maybe Costa Rica. But the U.S.. do not permit us.
Che Guevara
A lot of movies that come from Israel are about war, but there is such good, funny, rounded writing that comes from the country that I wish more people would discover.
Odeya Rush
A man should be able to stand up under any disaster for his country’s good.
More American companies are getting bought by foreign firms or they`re becoming foreign firms or they`re outsourcing. Right now the tax code says if you want to make something in another country and re-import it back into America, go ahead and do that. We don`t want to incentivize that.
Paul Ryan
When you have a peace movement that has an actual war, it’s different from one that has wars that our country is not totally involved in. During the war in Vietnam, and to a lesser degree the wars in Central America where our country was directly involved, it was easier to organize.
Grace Paley
I love the people of Venezuela. I want that country to have freedom. I want it to have human rights and to be banned by a dictator like Nicolas Maduro is, to me, a badge of honor.
Marco Rubio
I do not bring any professional knowledge of the issue to bear, but what I do bring to my consideration of immigration is a deepened and highly sensitized feeling with those persons who feel alien in our country. I can feel the strangeness they feel because it is something I have experienced in a different area.
Barbara Jordan
The reality is, there is heartbreaking tragedy that has struck American families because people who came into this country illegally are now involved in criminal and reprise and activity, and we do not have the resources or the will to deport them systematically.
Mike Pence
Terror is only justice: prompt, severe and inflexible; it is then an emanation of virtue; it is less a distinct principle than a natural consequence of the general principle of democracy, applied to the most pressing wants of the country.
Maximilien Robespierre
The people on Wall Street broke this country, and they did it one lousy mortgage at a time. It happened more than three years ago, and there has been no real accountability, and there has been no real effort to fix it.
Elizabeth Warren
Since January 1993 there have been 27 other countries not in the EU that have done better than the UK at exporting goods into the single market.
Boris Johnson
When I finished graduate school, the first George Bush was president, and I really wanted to get out of the country. We’d just gone through the first Gulf War.
Lily King
Although I had lived a far from perfect life, my heart and soul belonged to God, country, and family long before the Navy got hold of me.
Jeremiah Denton
Nigeria’s unity is one for which enough blood has been spilled and many hundreds of thousands of lives have been lost. Many have paid for the unity of this country with their lives, and it will be wrong of us, as men and women of goodwill in this generation, to toy with those sacrifices that have been made.
Yemi Osinbajo
In light of the events on September 11, my country has told me that I should not cooperate with terrorists. I therefore am refusing to cooperate with members of Congress who are some of the most extreme terrorists in history.
Craig Rosebraugh
You will also allow me to thank the Academy for inviting me to lecture in Stockholm, for its hospitality, and for the opportunity afforded me for admiring the charm of your people and the beauty of your country.
Guglielmo Marconi
God made the country, and man made the town.
William Cowper
The accumulation of skill and science which has been directed to diminish the difficulty of producing manufactured goods, has not been beneficial to that country alone in which it is concentrated distant kingdoms have participated in its advantages.
Charles Babbage
I think it is important for someone like me to not run away from who I am but embrace it. LGBT people across the country need to know they have a friend in Congress.
Mark Takano
When you go visiting countries, you start reading the history of the place and you start getting into the culture, and then you have to leave. In my experience, all countries have hidden treasures.
Jo Nesbo
I walk every day, and I look at the mountains and the fields and the small city, and I say: ‘Oh my God, what a blessing.’ Then you realise it’s important to put it in a context beyond this woman, this man, this city, this country, this universe.
Paulo Coelho
Around the country, ideas that originated on the hard right or in the fevered imaginations of conspiracy theorists are finding their way into the mainstream. In a number of cases, these ideas have become commonplace in American minds.
Chip Berlet
Country music is the people’s music. It just speaks about real life and about truth and it tells things how they really are.
Faith Hill
If the budget that you’re talking about isn’t a good one, then it’s better not to pass a budget. Most people in the country will never notice whether we pass a budget resolution or not.
Maya MacGuineas
America does not need to be worried with bailing out a European country that has made irresponsible expenditures, and then all of a sudden, throws their hands up and say, Oh, please come save us. That is not our responsibility in the United States of America.
Rick Perry
The artists in country music who stopped having hits are the ones who were led into something that wasn’t them.
Conway Twitty
Unlike the days of the gold standard, it is impossible for the Federal Reserve to go bankrupt; it holds the legal monopoly of counterfeiting (of creating money out of thin air) in the entire country.
Murray Rothbard
No one will ever forget that night, and what it meant for this country. But I will never forget the man and what he meant to me.
Alan Moore
I get to be the mayor of the capital city of the most polluting state of the most polluting country on the planet. … I see truly a non-carbon economy. It’s cleaner. It’s healthier. We’re about out of alternatives, so it’s going to be easier and more cost effective to start to do the right thing.
Will Wynn
Part of what makes America strong is our resilience, tenacity, innovation and our willingness to be optimistic about our future. I know that President Obama is absolutely the best president to lead our country in the right direction.
Valerie Jarrett
Aid is the process by which the poor in rich countries subsidize the rich in poor countries.
Peter Thomas Bauer
You have the power to take our country back.
Howard Dean
The United States has put more money on HIV, AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis than any country in the world and it’s having an impact real quick.
Bill Frist
For me the definition of a patriot is someone who is willing to constantly question the government; that’s what separates us from other countries.
George Clooney
I don’t think generally politician come from democratic country. I think not that thinking. But sometimes little bit short-sighted. They are mainly looking for their next vote.
Dalai Lama
We all are now very aware of what a connected world we live in – connected to each other and to the earth that gives us everything we have. We need all countries and companies to step up and play their part – setting strong goals, having clear plans, and openly demonstrating progress.
Richard Branson
You’ve got to use alcohol and not let it use you. I come from a country that’s been doomed by alcohol. The Irish could drink; they could drink Europe. And they’d have a good go at America, too. I mean, you guys – your alcohol is like not good, it’s weak.
Gavin Friday
I want you to know that everything I did, I did for my country.
Pol Pot
Africans should be talking and ask questions, like why does America and Russia have the right to veto votes? These countries talk about democracy and yet are not democratic themselves.
Femi Kuti
It is human nature to imagine, to put yourself in another’s shoes. The past may be another country. But the only passport required is empathy.
Geraldine Brooks
There clearly is a serious race problem in the country. Just take a look at what’s happening to African American communities. For example wealth, wealth in African American communities is almost zero. The history is striking.
Noam Chomsky
With one hand, you’re selling the country out to Western multinationals. And with the other, you want to defend your borders with nuclear bombs. It’s such an irony! You’re saying that the world is a global village, but then you want to spend crores of rupees on building nuclear weapons.
Arundhati Roy
The most persistent of all attractive illusions in our country may be that racism can be ended by one single blow.
McGeorge Bundy
It’s an ancient idea that the leader of a democracy should not be the cleverest but the most average. That’s an arguable point, but the world has decided otherwise – except in America, where it still divides the country right down the middle.
Martin Amis
When you talk about aiding this country against that country or about fighting terrorism, when you actually take that decision and strip it down, it always comes down to one person in the field giving specialized training to somebody else in the field.
Robert D. Kaplan
Terrorist threats are not happening just in this country, but in every European country and every country across the globe. As a result of that, we do sometimes have to take measures we would rather not take in order to give us the security we need.
Tony Blair
I love my country, not my government.
Jesse Ventura
America is a great country. We are so wealthy. But our one remaining challenge is to fulfill the potential of all our people. And the only way we can do that is to try to bring everybody together to a higher place.
Dick Gephardt
Britain is a very small country with a very large press.
David Hockney
Americans have the right and advantage of being armed – unlike the citizens of other countries whose governments are afraid to trust the people with arms.
James Madison
There is no simple formula for the relationship of art to justice…In the end, I don’t think we can separate art from overall human dignity and hope. My concern for my country is inextricable from my concerns as an artist.
Adrienne Rich
There is no system in the world or any school in the country that is better than its teachers. Teachers are the lifeblood of the success of schools.
Ken Robinson
Beside all the moral benefit which we may expect from the farmer’s profession, when a man enters it considerately, this promised the conquering of the soil, plenty, and beyond this, the adorning of the country with every advantage and ornament which labor, ingenuity, and affection for a man’s home, could suggest.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
I consider the war of America against Britain as the country’s war, the public’s war, or the war of the people in their own behalf, for the security of their natural rights, and the protection of their own property.
Thomas Paine
CEOs pretty much pick the boards that give them salaries and bonuses. That’s one of the reasons why the CEO-to-payment [ratio] has so sharply escalated in this country in contrast to Europe. (They’re similar societies and it’s bad enough there, but here we’re in the stratosphere. ] There’s no particular reason for it.
Noam Chomsky
I served on the Armed Services Committee for 18 years and we must lead, or the job won’t get done, unfortunately, for our country.
John Kasich
These powerbrokers, which bomb innocent countries and slaughter people, and, you know, pump the food chain full of garbage and just everything else they do, it’s probably something fun for them. They really get off on being bad little boys.
Alex Jones
I came to Ottawa with the firm belief that the only people in this country who should have guns are police officers and soldiers.
Allan Rock
Shaped a little like a loaf of French country bread, our brain is a crowded chemistry lab, bustling with nonstop neural conversations.
Diane Ackerman
My parents moved across the country so I could pursue a dream.
Taylor Swift
Beauty, thou wild fantastic ape Who dost in every country change thy shape!
Abraham Cowley
I think in this country [UK] we could do with rather less political correctness and more straight talking across the board.
Philip Davies
The United States is the only country where a driver can have a successful career – either in stock cars or IndyCar – and he won’t need a passport.
Mario Andretti
Land is a nation’s basis for existence. The nation has its roots like those of a tree deep in the country’s soil whence it derives its nourishment and life. There is no people that can live without land, as there is no tree which can live hanging in air.
Corneliu Zelea Codreanu
Every country in the world now needs to have its veterinary services on high alert for H5N1 to be sure they are not caught unawares.
David Nabarro
It’s important to understand that calcium isn’t just about what you eat; it’s also about what you keep. Acidic animal products mine minerals like potassium, magnesium and calcium from our bodies. In fact, the countries that consume the most dairy have the highest rates of hip fracture and osteoporosis.
Sharon Gannon
Each and every day, more people pay the price of Obamacare’s mountain of mandates. As I travel across the country, I continue to hear from Americans who want Washington to take its hands off of their healthcare.
John Barrasso
We should teach the foreigners and colonialists that Somalia cannot be led by other people and that the traitors who fled the country will never lead Somalia.
Siad Barre
A passport, as I’m sure you know, is a document that one shows to government officials whenever one reaches a border between two countries, so that the official can learn who you are, where you were born, and how you look when photographed unflatteringly.
Daniel Handler
With earnest prayers to all my friends to cherish mutual good will, to promote harmony and conciliation, and above all things to let the love of our country soar above all minor passions, I tender you the assurance of my affectionate esteem and respect.
Thomas Jefferson
In this country your guilty until proven wealthy.
Bill Maher
Workers in the bourgeois countries must fight for equal rights for men and women.
Nadezhda Krupskaya
When it comes to America’s economy, the truth is that Mitt Romney believes that the key to our country’s economic future lies in the failed policies of the past, the same ones that put banks before people, Wall Street before Main Street, plunging us into recession and devastating the middle class.
Charlie Gonzalez
We always had our own vegetables growing up and now I’m doing it with my kids at our house in the country.
Stella McCartney
I go about the world, hand outstretched, and in the stadiums I plead: ‘A pretty move, for the love of God.’ And when good soccer happens, I give thanks for the miracle and I don’t give a damn which team or country performs it.
Eduardo Galeano
I know the country works extremely well. You know, but when it isn’t clogged up.
Warren Buffett
True enough, the country is calm. Calm as a morgue or a grave, would you not say?
Vaclav Havel
Japan is the only country in the world to have suffered the ravages of atomic bombing. That experience left an indelible mark on the hearts of our people, making them passionately determined to renounce all wars.
Eisaku Sato
The Unites States is the largest developed country. Canada enjoys a flourishing economy and advanced technology. Mexico is an important developing country. China attaches great importance to the friendly cooperation with the three countries,.
Li Zhaoxing
No other country in the world imprisons so many of its racial or ethnic minorities. The United States imprisons a larger percentage of its black population than South Africa did at the height of apartheid
Michelle Alexander
There used to be a cruel joke that said Brazil is the country of the future, and always will be; Obama is the Brazil of today’s politicians. He has obviously achieved nothing.
Charles Krauthammer
We will convey our deep appreciation for the Islamic faith, which has done so much over the centuries to shape the world – including in my own country.
Barack Obama
