Country Quotes

Free speech, exercised both individually and through a free press, is a necessity in any country where people are themselves free.

Theodore Roosevelt

I hope we shall take warning from the example of England and crush in its birth the aristocracy of our moneyed corporations which dare already to challenge our Government to trial, and bid defiance to the laws of our country.

Thomas Jefferson

There is no week nor day nor hour when tyranny may not enter upon this country, if the people lose their roughness and spirit of defiance.

Walt Whitman

Some people in our country seem more concerned about respecting the dignity and privacy of criminals and terrorists than they are about having an airport full of people obliterated, or a completely booked hotel blown to bits. Perhaps they think, Let's not get so upset about attacks on our embassies or military bases. Maybe, they surmise, the terrorists have good reason for attacking us. We have no right to be harassing innocent people in our country. For some people, not even the grotesque images that filled our television screens after al Qaeda's blatant attacks on 9/11 seem enough to wake them out of their utopia feel-good world.

John David Ashcroft

Each country will be a moral force, and no longer a brutal force; while all brutal forces clash with themselves, all moral forces make mighty harmony together.

Henri Barbusse

Character assassination is at once easier and surer than physical assault; and it involves far less risk for the assassin. It leaves him free to commit the same deed over and over again, and may, indeed, win him the honors of a hero in the country of his victims.

Alan Barth

The big divide in this country is not between Democrats and Republicans, or women and men, but between talkers and doers.

Thomas Sowell

It's silly talking about how many years we will have to spend in the jungles of Vietnam when we could pave the whole country and put parking stripes on it and still be home for Christmas.

Ronald Reagan

It will be a great day for America, incidentally, when we begin to eat bread again, instead of the blasphemous and tasteless foam rubber that we have substituted for it. And I am not being frivolous here, either. Something very sinister happens to the people of a country when they begin to distrust their own reactions as deeply as they do here, and become as joyless as they have become.

James Baldwin

Hope is like a road in the country; there was never a road, but when many people walk on it, the road comes into existence.

Lin Yutang

A political country is like an American forest; you have only to cut down the old trees, and immediately new trees come up to replace them.

Walter Bagehot

We're in greater danger today than we were the day after Pearl Harbor. Our military is absolutely incapable of defending this country.

Ronald Reagan

If we don't make earnest moves toward real solutions, then each day we move one day closer to revolution and anarchy in this country. This is the sad, and yet potentially joyous, state of America.

Louis Farrakhan

Without an advocate for the poor, without a new state of mind in America, the country lies on the brink of anarchy.

Louis Farrakhan

We're the country that has more food to eat than any other country in the world, and with more diets to keep us from eating it.
