The U.S.-led western alliance, while acting as an advocate of democracy, rule of law and human rights, is acting from the opposite position, rejecting the democratic principle of the sovereign right of states enshrined in the U.N.

Prayer assumes the sovereignty of God. If God is not sovereign, we have no assurance that He is able to answer our prayers. Our prayers would become nothing more than wishes.

One way to ease liquidity for banks is that the government can buy all highly rated securities held by the banks. Every single bank in the U.A.E. has some sovereign debts in their portfolios. I am not asking them to buy any junk bonds, rather the high quality U.A.E. government debt.

Any conception of a god that is less than sovereign is an idol and no god at all.

David Platt
Nature has placed mankind under the government of two sovereign masters, pain and pleasure… they govern us in all we do, in all we say, in all we think: every effort we can make to throw off our subjection, will serve but to demonstrate and confirm it.

We’re building a new partnership between our nations and we are ending a war not with a final battle but with a final march toward home. This is an extraordinary achievement
Barack Obama
Every power vested in a government is in its nature sovereign, and includes by force of the term a right to employ all the means requisite . . . to the attainment of the ends of such power.
Alexander Hamilton
God was under no constraint, no obligation, no necessity to create. That He chose to do so was purely a sovereign act on His part, caused by nothing outside Himself, determined by nothing but His own mere good pleasure.
Arthur W. Pink
The U.S. is a sovereign nation, and if the U.S. decides to build a wall on the southern border, it’s their sovereign decision. We may like it or not.
Ildefonso Guajardo Villarreal
I have been asked hundreds of times in my life why God allows tragedy and suffering. I have to confess that I really do not know the answer totally, even to my own satisfaction. I have to accept, by faith, that God is sovereign, and He is a God of love and mercy and compassion in the midst of suffering.
Billy Graham
We unjustly defraud God of his right, unless each of us lives and dies in dependence on His sovereign pleasure.
John Calvin

David Platt
If we remain determined to shape a new and better world of separate, sovereign nations, this new century will be a happier one.
Alan Caruba
The principle of democracy is a recognition of the sovereign, inalienable rights of man as a gift from God, the Source of law.
Fulton J. Sheen
Election is an act of God before creation in which He chooses some people to be saved, not on account of any foreseen merit in them, but only because of His sovereign good pleasure.
Wayne Grudem
In 2016, let us all join the Rising, and the only final message is this very clear: Up the Rebels. Up a sovereign and independent Irish republic.
Martin McGuinness
Undoubtedly equality of goods is just; but, being unable to cause might to obey justice, men has made it just to obey might. Unable to strengthen justice, they have justified might–so that the just and the strong should unite, and there should be peace, which is the sovereign good.
Blaise Pascal
We do not choose the day of our birth nor may we choose the day of our death, yet choice is the sovereign faculty of the mind.
Thornton Wilder
To say that God’s sovereignty is limited by man’s freedom is to make man sovereign.
R. C. Sproul
Each State, in ratifying the Constitution, is considered as a sovereign body, independent of all others, and only to be bound by its own voluntary act. In this relation, then, the new Constitution will, if established, be a FEDERAL, and not a NATIONAL constitution.
James Madison
It is the business of the teacher … to fortify reason and to make conscience sovereign.
John Lancaster Spalding
My vanity was flattered by having been mistaken for our revered sovereign. I ordered a banquet to be got ready for the following evening, under the trees before my house, and invited the whole town.
Adelbert von Chamisso
I simply want tomorrow to be better than today. I want Palestine to be independent and sovereign… Do not let the olive branch fall from my hand.
Mahmoud Abbas
Fame, the sovereign deity of proud ambition.
Richard Brinsley Sheridan

George W. Bush
In order for a war to be just, three things are necessary. First, the authority of the sovereign… Secondly, a just cause… Thirdly… a rightful intention.

Max Lucado
The Government made by a number of Sovereign States.
Roger Sherman
It is our confidence in the sovereign grace of God that gives us any hope of success in missions.
Kevin DeYoung
They are not rules prescribed by the sovereign to the subject, but agreements between sovereign and sovereign.
Alexander Hamilton
With all my heart I believe that the world’s present system of sovereign nations can only lead to barbarism, war and inhumanity, and that only world law can assure progress towards a civilized peaceful community.
Albert Einstein
Whoso has sixpence is sovereign (to the length of sixpence) over all men; commands cooks to feed him, philosophers to teach him, kings to mount guard over him,to the length of sixpence.
Thomas Carlyle
If you can explain what is happening in a church, apart from the sovereign act of God, it is not revival.
Martyn Lloyd-Jones
Not to discontinue our allegiance, in this case, would be to join with the sovereign in promoting the slavery and misery of that society, the welfare of which, we ourselves, as well as our sovereign, are indispensably obliged to secure and promote, as far as in us lies.
Jonathan Mayhew
Preparation for defense is an inalienable prerogative of a sovereign state.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
Operation Sovereign Borders has worked and delivered a human dividend that is compassionate and fair… our plan is simple. We won’t change it. Labor will.
Scott Morrison
It is certainly not unrealistic to think we could have elections by mid-year 2004 and when a sovereign government is installed – my job here will be done.
Paul Bremer
The laws receive their force and authority from an oath of fidelity, either tacit or expressed, which living subjects have sworn to their sovereign, in order to restrain the intestine fermentation of the private interest of individuals.
Cesare Beccaria
The fact is that, under a capitalistic system, the ultimate bosses are the consumers. The sovereign is not the state, it is the people.
Ludwig von Mises
The capitalist system of production is an economic democracy in which every penny gives a right to vote. The consumers are the sovereign people. The capitalists, the entrepreneurs, and the farmers are the people’s mandatories. If they do not obey, if they fail to produce, at the lowest possible cost, what
Ludwig von Mises
Magna Charta is such a fellow, that he will have no sovereign
Edward Coke
I wonder much that a court of Law should be in doubt whether a Resolution of Congress can superceed the Law of a Sovereign State.
William Whipple
As the great advocates of trade and liberal markets, Conservatives should guide our country through the transition from being one of twenty-eight in the E.U. to a strong, sovereign and independent country.
Priti Patel
Israel is a sovereign state. If you decide on your capital city, we will act in accordance.
Jair Bolsonaro
Unfortunately, some Christians are guilty of throwing out an equivalent sentiment when they play the “God is sovereign” card as a way to trump every evil that comes your way.
Tullian Tchividjian
Grace, then, is grace,–that is to say, it is sovereign, it is free, it is sure, it is unconditional, and it is everlasting.
Alexander Whyte
The sovereign God wants to be loved for Himself and honoured for Himself, but that is only part of what He wants. The other part is that He wants us to know that when we have Him we have everything – we have all the rest.
Aiden Wilson Tozer
The United States exists as a sovereign nation. ‘America,’ in contrast, exists as a myth of democracy and equal opportunity to live by, or as an ideal goal to reach.
Bharati Mukherjee
All Governments rest mainly on public opinion, and to that of his own subjects every wise Sovereign will look. The opinion of his subjects will force a Sovereign to do his duty, and by that opinion will he be exalted or depressed in the politics of the world.
Lloyd Kenyon, 1st Baron Kenyon
The sovereign state has in our times become a lethal danger to human civilization because technical developments enable it to employ an infinite number and variety of means of destruction.
Christian Lous Lange
Let’s make a deal with the Serbs. Neither history nor emotion in the Balkans will permit multinationalism. We have to give up on the illusion of the last eight years… Dayton isn’t working. Nobody – except diplomats and petty officials – believes in a sovereign Bosnia and the Dayton accords.
Franjo Tudjman
God either rules as sovereign in interpretation over *all* areas of life or none.
Greg L. Bahnsen
Western capitalism is a looting mechanism. It loots labor. It loots the environment, and with the transpacific and transatlantic ‘partnerships,’ it will loot the sovereign law of countries.
Paul Craig Roberts
Set faith at work on Christ for the killing of thy sin. His blood is the great sovereign remedy for sin-sick souls. Live in this, and thou wilt die a conqueror; yea, thou wilt, through the good providence of God, live to see thy lust dead at thy feet.
John Owen
It is the habit of mankind to entrust to careless hope what they long for, and to use sovereign reason to thrust aside what they do not desire
Thucydides
Metaphysical thinking will always no doubt be a strong element in her mentality, and it is to be hoped that she will never lose her great, her sovereign powers in that direction.
Sri Aurobindo
With many sovereign states, with no system of law enforceable among them, with each state judging its grievances and ambitions according to the dictates of its own reason or desire – conflict, sometimes leading to war, is bound to occur.
Kenneth Waltz
Grace is free sovereign favor to the ill-deserving.
B. B. Warfield
Self-reverence, self-knowledge, self-control; these three alone lead one to sovereign power.
Alfred Lord Tennyson
People ask me, ‘Why pray if God is sovereign?’ I respond, ‘Why pray if He isn’t?
Michael Horton
A man finds in the productions of nature an inexhaustible stock of material on which he can employ himself, without any temptations to envy or malevolence, and has always a certain prospect of discovering new reasons for adoring the sovereign author of the universe.
Samuel Johnson
One can put some trust in the gratitude of a sovereign, and also in that of his family; under certain conditions, one can even rely upon it; but one can never expect anything from the gratitude of a nation.
Otto von Bismarck
The Sovereign has, under a constitutional monarchy such as ours, three rights – the right to be consulted, the right to encourage, the right to warn. And a king of great sense and sagacity would want no others.
Walter Bagehot
I recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. And I have always recognized Jerusalem as the capital of the independent, fully sovereign Palestinian state that we all want to emerge from negotiations toward a true two-state solution.
Eric Garcetti
Taiwan is an independent sovereign country.
Chen Shui-bian
God in His sovereign goodness often uses the painful and at times debilitating injury of a spear thrower to make us readier for His service. … One thing you discover about spear throwers is that though it’s not necessary for them to be good, it’s essential for them to appear good.
Erwin W. Lutzer
God involves us in his missions not because He needs us, but because He loves us. And in His mercy He has invited us to be involved in His sovereign design for the spread of the gospel to the ends of the earth.
David Platt
Occupation – pressing occupation that will not be said nay – is a sovereign remedy for grief.
William Godwin
Before, Europe was about treaties, laws and our sovereign right to govern ourselves. Now, it’s about everyday lives.
Nigel Farage
The Grape that can with Logic absolute The Two-and-Seventy jarring Sects confute: The sovereign Alchemist that in a trice Life’s leaden metal into Gold transmute.
Omar Khayyam
THIS Duty implies that we should affectionately interest ourselves in whatever concerns the Honour, the Fame and Security of our Sovereign and his Government.
Charles Inglis
I think it’s inevitable that New Zealand will become a republic and that would reflect the reality that New Zealand is a totally sovereign-independent 21st century nation 12,000 miles from the United Kingdom.
Helen Clark
Under the dual sovereignty principle, the Fifth Amendment’s prohibition on double jeopardy – which prevents the government from trying someone twice for the same crime – doesn’t apply if the second trial is by a different ‘sovereign’ – in this case, the state.
Asha Rangappa
Worry springs from not being convinced of a sovereign God’s absolute love for you. Worry disappears when you realize that God loves you unfailingly and will let nothing interrupt His plans for your good.
J. D. Greear
There are roads which must not be followed, armies which must not be attacked, towns which must not be besieged, positions which must not be contested, commands of the sovereign which must not be obeyed.
Sun Tzu
The best way of learning to be an independent sovereign state is to be an independent sovereign state.
Kwame Nkrumah
It is altogether proper for people to recognize a sovereign God.
Roy Moore
Death is the only sovereign whom no partiality can warp, and no price corrupt.
Charles Caleb Colton
The General who in advancing does not seek personal fame, and in withdrawing is not concerned with avoiding punishment, but whose only purpose is to protect the people and promote the best interests of his sovereign, is the precious jewel of the state.
Sun Tzu
Armies under the control of … a sovereign State cannot bring freedom to anyone.
Simone Weil
What enables the wise sovereign and the good general to strike and conquer, and achieve things beyond the reach of ordinary men, is foreknowledge.
Sun Tzu
Do all things without grumbling. Why? You have a sovereign God who is on your side, who works everything together for your good.
John Piper
There can be no more intimate and elemental part of the individual than his or her own consciousness. At the deepest level, our consciousness is what we are – to the extent that if we are not sovereign over our own consciousness then we cannot in any meaningful sense be sovereign over anything else either.
Graham Hancock
We believe that when all nations adhere to international rules and norms and when we conduct on the basis of sovereign equality and mutual respect, our nations feel secure, and our economies prosper.
Sushma Swaraj
It is absolutely necessary that the Christian community be subject in all things to the Sovereign Pontiff if it wishes to be a part of the divinely-established society founded by our Redeemer.
Pope Pius XII
True liberty does violence to self and, like Christ, who disregarded that he was sovereign becomes a slave to serve others.
Oscar Romero
All law is situational law. The sovereign produces and guarantees the situation in its totality. He has the monopoly over this last decision.
Carl Schmitt
Catalan politics emancipated from the Spanish politics on September 27, 2015. Since then, we’ve acted with a sovereign mentality, political sovereignty.
Carles Puigdemont
I see Libya as a member of the Non-Aligned Movement and a sovereign State of the nearly 200 members of the United Nations.
Fidel Castro
Wars are no longer waged in the name of a sovereign who must be defended; they are waged on behalf of the existence of everyone; entire populations are mobilized for the purpose of wholesale slaughter in the name of life necessity: massacres have become vital.
Michel Foucault
No state is free from militarism, which is inherent in the very concept of the sovereign state. There are merely differences of degree in the militarism of states.
Christian Lous Lange
The Hebrews have done more to civilize men than any other nation: The doctrine of a supreme, intelligent sovereign of the universe, I believe to be the great essential principle of all morality, and consequently of all civilization.
John Adams
The sovereign being is burdened with a servitude that crushes him, and the condition of free men is deliberate servility.
Georges Bataille
It is the system of nationalist individualism that has to go….We are living in the end of the sovereign states….In the great struggle to evoke a Westernized World Socialism, contemporary governments may vanish….Countless people…will hate the new world order….and will die protesting against it.
H. G. Wells
It’s time for ordinary Americans to come out of the shadows and remind Washington every day in words and actions that we are a sovereign nation, not a sanctuary nation.
Michelle Malkin
With nearly 20 days until Iraq emerges as a free sovereign state for the first time in more than three decades, terrorists have increasingly targeted our country’s infrastructure.
Iyad Allawi
We are going to emancipate ourselves from mental slavery because whilst others might free the body, none but ourselves can free the mind. Mind is your only ruler, sovereign. The man who is not able to develop and use his mind is bound to be the slave of the other man who uses his mind.
Marcus Garvey
Missile strikes – or any other such action – against a sovereign nation is an act of war.
Scott Garrett
It’s not the physical location of birth that defines citizenship, but whether your parents are citizens, and the express or implied consent to jurisdiction of the sovereign.
Phyllis Schlafly
Most redoubted lord and right sovereign cousin, may the Almighty Lord have you in his keeping.
Owen Glendower
Spain is finding it very difficult to finance itself with sovereign debt risk premium so high.
Mariano Rajoy
The right to life does not depend, and must not be declared to be contingent, on the pleasure of anyone else, not even a parent or sovereign.
Mother Teresa
It is true that the principle of national citizenship, associated with rights, and the control of a country’s borders are two key aspects of modern ‘sovereign’ nation states as they emerged in the Westphalian order. But there has been much progress since 1648.
Kofi Annan
The sovereign electing grace of God chooses us to repentance, to faith, and afterwards to holiness of living, to Christian service, to zeal, and to devotion.
Charles Spurgeon
It is in the American interest to put an end to Nationhood. That is the goal in global government. America must get out of the United Nations or our sovereign Republic will not survive.
Walt Whitman Rostow
The use and threat of force, when world peace is not in danger, are no longer valid frames of reference for achieving the ends sought today by sovereign nations.
Carlos Salinas de Gortari
India, being a sovereign state, has the right to decide what kind of nuclear deterrent New Delhi needs in respect of international security perception.
Rajnath Singh
The ECB’s interventions in sovereign bond markets should not be perceived or interpreted as a ‘freebie’ for governments. They are temporary.
Lucas Papademos
Alien – an American sovereign in his probationary state.
Ambrose Bierce
There is an interesting parallel between the ‘Argo’ story and ’13 Hours’ in that, around the world, we have 285 or so diplomatic outposts and the expectation that the local government will come to our aid if we ever come under attack on the sovereign property of the United States in an embassy.
Mitchell Zuckoff
Sovereign is he who decides on the exception.
Carl Schmitt
In line with international law, only the U.N. Security Council could sanction the use of force against a sovereign state. Any other pretext or method which might be used to justify the use of force against an independent sovereign state are inadmissible and can only be interpreted as an aggression.
Vladimir Putin
We are too often double espresso followers of a decaf Sovereign.
John Ortberg
The sovereign good of man is a mind that subjects all things to itself and is itself subject to nothing; such a man’s pleasures are modest and reserved, and it may be a question whether he goes to heaven, or heaven comes to him; for a good man is influenced by God Himself, and has a kind of divinity within him.
Seneca the Younger
Far from wishing to awaken the artist in the pupil prematurely, the teacher considers it his first task to make him a skilled artisan with sovereign control of his craft.
Eugen Herrigel
Christ’s blood is the great sovereign remedy for sin-sick souls.
John Owen
There was a real fear that a euro-zone bank might fail, that we’d have a sovereign debt problem in one of the larger European economies. That’s dissipated, thanks largely to the action of the European Central Bank.
George Osborne
Prayer is the key of perfection and of sovereign happiness; it is the efficacious means of getting rid of all vices and of acquiring all virtues; for the way to become perfect is to live in the presence of God.
Jeanne Marie Bouvier de la Motte Guyon
Love is the occupation of the idle man, the amusement of a busy one, and the shipwreck of a sovereign.
Napoleon Bonaparte
We can rest confident in the fact that nothing will happen to us in this world apart from the gracious will of a sovereign God. Nothing.
David Platt
Everyone must feel that he is the supreme arbiter of his own [destiny], that no power on earth shall rise over him, that he is and always shall be sovereign of himself and all relating to his individuality. Then only shall all men realize security of person and property.
Josiah Warren
So you know, everyone points out Greece’s default record, but the history of a lot of sovereign nations is not a good one when it comes to lending them money.
James Chanos
In a democracy, it is the people who are sovereign. Therefore, with regard to the promotion of democracy at the local, country and regional levels, civil society must have a stronger voice in all political processes.
Alfred-Maurice de Zayas
Jesus is not some puny religious teacher begging for an invitation from anyone. He is the all-sovereign Lord who deserves submission from everyone.
David Platt
The true sovereign is not the American president nor the English king, but the Lord of the Second Advent.
Sun Myung Moon
To know God as the sovereign disposer of all good, inviting us to present our requests, and yet not to approach or ask of him, were so far from availing us, that it were just as if one told of a treasure were to allow it to remain buried in the ground.
John Calvin
The whole basis of the Constitution was a restriction of power, and the whole basis of the federalist system was that there was not one sovereign centralized power from which all authority flows.
Roy Moore
It should be appreciated that this whole effort to hold leaders of states criminally responsible is a rather radical challenge to territorial sovereignty and a repudiation of the whole related ethos of ‘sovereign immunity’.
Richard A. Falk
Consider how august a privilege it is, when angels are present, and archangels throng around, when cherubim and seraphim encircle with their blaze the throne, that a mortal may approach with unrestrained confidence, and converse with heaven’s dread Sovereign! O, what honor was ever conferred like this?
Saint John Chrysostom
Speech within the kingdom of Amazonia – run by its sovereign Jeff Bezos and his board of directors with help from the wise counsel and judgment of the company’s executives – is not protected in the same way that speech is constitutionally protected in America’s public spaces.
Rebecca MacKinnon
The realization of God’s presence is the one sovereign remedy against temptation.
Francois Fenelon
There’s a strong victim mentality in my generation. I think it’s spiritual laziness. They will agree that God is sovereign over all, but then they will say, “Well, I wish he would sovereignly take away my lust issue.” There’s just not a lot of fortitude, not a lot of fight in them.
Matt Chandler
Prime ministers come and go, but so long as he or she lives, the sovereign remains, receiving and reading all state papers and meeting once a week with the prime minister to advise, enquire, and comment – sometimes sharply, as was the case with Queen Elizabeth II and Mrs. Thatcher – on affairs of state.
Michael Korda
Love isn’t the work of the tender and the gentle; Love is the work of wrestlers. The one who becomes a servant of lovers is really a fortunate sovereign. Don’t ask anyone about Love; ask Love about Love. Love is a cloud that scatters pearls.
Rumi
It’s our right, as a sovereign nation to chose immigrants that we think are the likeliest to thrive and flourish and love us.
Donald Trump
How can you have the religion of the sovereign be the religion of the state if the sovereign belongs to many religions? And it’s at that point, I think, historically, that you start to see people saying maybe the state should not associate itself with any religion. Maybe there shouldn’t be any official religion.
Noah Feldman
I will not nullify, I will not secede, but I will under sovereign State authority fight in the Union another revolutionary conflict for civil liberty, and a Union which will defend it.
Henry A. Wise
I’m convinced that there is nothing that can happen to me in this life that is not precisely designed by a sovereign Lord to give me the opportunity to learn to know Him.
Elisabeth Elliot
No people without a government of their own can expect to be treated on the same level as people of independent sovereign states. It is far better to be free to govern or misgovern yourself than to be governed by anybody else . . .
Kwame Nkrumah
If the United States is treating Afghanistan as a sovereign country it has to prove it.
Hamid Karzai
We can each rest in the knowledge that God is sovereign over our life’s situation. No matter where we are today or what mistakes we’ve made in the past, He has given us everything we need to glorify Him right now.
Joshua Harris
It is never the thing but the version of the thing:
The fragrance of the woman not her self,
Her self in her manner not the solid block,
The day in its color not perpending time,
Time in its weather, our most sovereign lord,
The weather in words and words in sounds of sound.
Wallace Stevens
There’s a number of journalists and politicians who are interested in the rise of the National Front and the huge nationalist gathering, the movements that refuse the E.U. and want to go back to a Europe of nations, free and sovereign countries. I’m here to re-educate.
Marine Le Pen
Real satisfaction comes not in understanding God’s motives, but in understanding His character, in trusting in His promises, and in leaning on Him and resting in Him as the Sovereign who knows what He is doing and does all things well.
Joni Eareckson Tada
The God of metaphysics is but an idea. But the God of religion, the Maker of heaven and earth, the sovereign Judge of actions and thoughts, is a power.
Joseph Joubert
An Indian tribe is sovereign to the extent that the U.S. permits it to be sovereign.
Russell Smith
We have forgotten that our sovereign duty is to leave the world in a better condition than when we each entered it
Michael Tsarion
New revelations regarding faith or morals … have always been abhorred and challenged in the Church … Hence, the Sovereign Pontiffs, the Councils, and the Fathers have been most careful to reject all novelties or new doctrines on matters of faith which differed from those already received.
Alphonsus Liguori
In the ancient recipe, the three antidotes for dullness or boredom are sleep, drink, and travel. It is rather feeble. From sleep you wake up, from drink you become sober, and from travel you come home again. And then where are you? No, the two sovereign remedies for dullness are love or a crusade.
D. H. Lawrence
To Edward, I cannot be a traitor, for I owe him no allegiance; he is not my sovereign; he never received my homage; and whilst life is in this persecuted body, he shall never receive it.
William Wallace
Profitability is the sovereign criterion of the enterprise.
Peter Drucker
Nature has placed mankind under the government of two sovereign masters, pain and pleasure.
Jeremy Bentham
Over one’s mind and over one’s body the individual is sovereign.
John Stuart Mill
What is supposed to happen in a democracy is that each sovereign citizen will always vote in the public interest for the safety and welfare of all. But what does happen is that he votes his own self-interest as he sees it… which for the majority translates as ‘Bread and Circuses’.
Robert A. Heinlein
A trauma is something one repeats and repeats, after all, and this is the tragedy of the Iqbals–that they can’t help but reenact the dash they once made from one land to another, from one faith to another, from one brown mother country into the pale, freckled arms of an imperial sovereign.
Zadie Smith
From creating a new sovereign to affairs of the heart, majestic moments to everyday life, when monarchy wants to send a message it uses a photograph.
Lucy Worsley
Puerto Rico has two divergent paths forward. After a reasonable transition period, it could become a state. Or it can become a sovereign nation.
Pedro Pierluisi
The market is sovereign and in the magic economy of the small entrepreneur there is no authoritarian center… in the political sphere… the equilibrium of powers prevails, and hence there is no chance of despotism.
C. Wright Mills
A constitution is the arrangement of magistracies in a state, especially of the highest of all. The government is everywhere sovereign in the state, and the constitution is in fact the government.
Aristotle
Smart people make good choices. They dig science and say ‘no’ to the invasion of sovereign nations for the pleasure of corporations.
Henry Rollins
In Indian communities, it’s a separate sovereign government, so you have to get permission from the tribal leadership before you can start campaigning on their land.
Deb Haaland
Activity is a sovereign remedy for the blues.
Myrtle Reed
Good when He gives, supremely good; Nor less when He denies: Afflictions, from His sovereign hand, Are blessings in disguise.
Brother Lawrence
Anarchy, the absence of a master, of a sovereign.
Pierre-Joseph Proudhon
There is not a square inch in the whole domain of our human existence over which Christ, who is Sovereign over all, does not cry, Mine!
Abraham Kuyper
A prince, the moment he is crown’d,
Inherits every virtue sound,
As emblems of the sovereign power,
Like other baubles in the Tower:
Is generous, valiant, just, and wise,
And so continues till he dies.
Jonathan Swift
An absolute monarchy is one in which the sovereign does as he pleases so long as he pleases the assassins.
Ambrose Bierce
A people among whom custom is altogether sovereign endures the despotism of the dead.
Bertrand de Jouvenel
This senior-junior, giant-dwarf, Dan Cupid;
Regent of love-rhymes, lord of folded arms,
The anointed sovereign of sighs and groans,
Liege of all loiterers and malcontents.
William Shakespeare
Shouldn’t the General Assembly adopt a declaration on the inadmissibility of interference into domestic affairs of sovereign states and nonrecognition of coup d’etats as a method of the change of power?
Sergei Lavrov
I never thought of myself as an outsider. Because outside of what? You would have to give advantage to this space where you’re not, to think of it as sovereign because you’re not there. I was always in the center of where I needed to be.
Aleksandar Hemon
Magna Charta is such a fellow, that he will have no sovereign.
Edward Coke
For it is not true, as some treatise-mongers lay down in their systems, of the probity of the speaker, that it contributes nothing to persuasion; but moral character nearly, I may say, carries with it the most sovereign efficacy in making credible.
Aristotle
No matter how good you think yourself to be, you cannot enter heaven unless it is under the terms of sovereign grace.
Charles Spurgeon
You know, what makes the prison disappear is every deep, serious attachment. To be friends, to be brothers, to love; that opens the prison through sovereign power, through a most powerful spell. But he who doesn’t have that remains in death. But where sympathy springs up again, life springs up again.
Vincent Van Gogh
We are made for action, and activity is the sovereign remedy for all physical ills.
Frederick II, Holy Roman Emperor
As for me, I see no such great cause why I should either be fond to live or fear to die. I have had good experience of this world, and I know what it is to be a subject and what to be a sovereign. Good neighbours I have had, and I have met with bad: and in trust I have found treason.
Elizabeth I
[Peace] cannot be honorable or secure, if the sovereign betrays a pusillanimous aversion to war.
Edward Gibbon
We must settle in our hearts that no matter what, God is sovereign.
Beth Moore
There is no king or sovereign state
That can fix a hero’s rate;
Each to all is venerable.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
The obligation of subjects to the sovereign is understood to last as long, and no longer, than the power lasteth by which he is able to protect them.
Thomas Hobbes
I can’t stress enough how strongly I am against any state intervention in a sovereign nation’s affairs.
Abby Martin
If you are experiencing confusion, pain, and suffering, it may be that God is working things out for you in his own way. It is most often the sovereign work of our God unfolding a master plan known only to him.
David Wilkerson
Those who are in a state of salvation are to attribute it to sovereign grace alone, and to give all the praise to Him who maketh them to differ from others.
Jonathan Edwards
I believe the sovereign God of the universe justifies us freely, and then we are called to run with him in sanctification.
Matt Chandler
Better talk than fight, if nothing of sovereign value is anyway lost. Dialogue has achieved more than confrontation in many parts of the world.
Gloria Macapagal Arroyo
A short death is the sovereign good hap of human life.
Pliny the Elder
In the total expanse of human life there is not a single square inch of which the Christ, who alone is sovereign, does not declare, ‘That is mine!’.
Abraham Kuyper
A popular vote to ascertain the will of the sovereign.
Ambrose Bierce
Try to think for your own why the Russians and the Chinese do not like the idea that whoever takes aggressive steps to keep order within his sovereign borders should not accept others to intervene physically.
Ehud Barak
. .we would have to say that hereditary succession is harmful. You may say the king, having sovereign power, will not in that case hand over to his children. But it is hard to believe that: it is a difficult achievement, which expects too much virtue of human nature.
Aristotle
The sovereign power of all civil authority is founded in the consent of the people.
Roger Williams
The world is beset by challenges including the ongoing danger of international terrorism, and the significant political and economic threats posed by factors such as the high levels of corporate and sovereign debt and persistent unemployment.
Dan Quayle
By and large, the world wants to move away from the nuclear era. The question is how fast and how far. In a world of sovereign nation-states, I can’t rationalize any number above zero. If it’s more than zero, you have to acknowledge every nation has the right to have them.
George Lee Butler
Our Constitution exists to secure individual freedom, the essential condition of human flourishing. Liberty is not provided by government; liberty preexists government. It’s our natural birthright, not a gift from the sovereign. Our founders upended things and divided power to enshrine a promise, not a process.
Don Willett
Lift up yourselves, men, take yourselves out of the mire and hitch your hopes to the very stars themselves. Let no man pull you down, let no man destroy your ambition, because man is but your companion, your equal; man is your brother; he is not your Lord, he is not your sovereign master.
Marcus Garvey

Isser Harel

Calvin Coolidge
Egypt is a sovereign nation.
William Hague
