National Anthem Quotes

While it is important to maintain a balanced approach to solving our nation`s energy problems, we must commit ourselves to recognize some areas as off imits, and the Artic National Wildlife Reserve is a national symbol of that commitment.

Allen Okamoto

We Americans have so much potential. We just need to cultivate an environment that allows us to let go of our Cro-Magnon nationalism and start living like citizens of earth.

Steve Pavlina

Where the stakes are the highest, in the war on terror, we cannot possibly succeed without extraordinary international cooperation. Effective international police actions require the highest degree of intelligence sharing, planning and collaborative enforcement.

Barack Obama

The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is a unique and biologically special place that should be preserved.

Dan Lipinski

I look at ANWR (Artic National Wildlife Refuge) as a poison pill in the energy bill.

Ben Nelson

I cannot in good conscience vote for final passage of legislation that would pave the way to open the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to oil drilling.

Jim Ramstad

This is the single most important land-use decision in the lifetime of most of the people in this room. In terms of acreage involved, there's nothing that compares with it. No other single conservation decision in history is of its magnitude, except the action of President Theodore Roosevelt in establishing the national forests at a time when they were seriously threatened.

Morris Udall

I would say laughter is the best medicine. But its more than that. Its an entire regime of antibiotics and steroids. Laughter brings the swelling down on our national psyche, and then applies an antibiotic cream... Obviously, its a challenge to make light of the darkness but, um, its better than crying about it.

Stephen Tyrone Colbert

I don't have labels. I believe in human beings, I believe in a strong national security, I believe in maximizing freedom... I can give you a whole list of things i'm for, but I believe in solving problems. I guess, more than anything else, I'm a pragmatist with strong beliefs in people.

Wesley Kanne Clark

Nothing is so well calculated to produce a death-like torpor in the country as an extended system of taxation and a great national debt.

William Cobbett

Let us have but one end in view, the welfare of humanity; and let us put aside all selfishness in consideration of language, nationality, or religion.

John Comenius

Fierce national competition over water resources has prompted fears that water issues contain the seeds of violent conflict

Kofi Annan

Trying to eliminate Saddam, extending the ground war into an occupation of Iraq, would have violated our guideline about not changing objectives in midstream, engaging in "mission creep", and would have incurred incalculable human and political costs. Apprehending him was probably impossible. We had been unable to find Noriega in Panama, which we knew intimately. We would have been forced to occupy Baghdad and, in effect, rule Iraq. The coalition would instantly have collapsed, the Arabs deserting it in anger and other allies pulling out as well. Under those circumstances, furthermore, we had been self-consciously trying to set a pattern for handling aggression in the post-cold war world. Going in and occupying Iraq, thus unilaterally exceeding the U.N.'s mandate, would have destroyed the precedent of international response to aggression we hoped to establish. Had we gone the invasion route, the U.S. could conceivably still be an occupying power in a bitterly hostile land. It would have been a dramatically different and perhaps barren outcome.

George Herbert Walker Bush

Blessed are the young, for they shall inherit the national debt

Herbert Hoover

Nation state as a fundamental unit of man's organized life has ceased to be the principal creative force: International banks and multinational corporations are acting and planning in terms that are far in advance of the political concepts of the nation-state

Zbigniew Kazimierz Brzezinski

The national budget must be balanced. The public debt must be reduced; the arrogance of the authorities must be moderated and ontrolled. Payments to foreign governments must be reduced. If the nation doesn't want to go bankrupt, people must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance

Marcus Tullius Cicero

It's not a third way between state capitalism and free markets, it is the free market way. Multi-national corporations should be the principal actors, but they should be properly regulated.

Ian Bremmer

The defeat of Nazi Germany signified the victory of progress over reaction, humanity over barbarism and the victory of socialism over imperialist obscurantism. This victory opened the road for advancing the revolutionary struggle of the working class, a national liberation movement on an unprecedented scale and the destruction of the shameful colonial system.

Leonid Ilyich Brezhnev

National Socialism and Christianity are irreconcilable.

Martin Bormann

The developed world should neither shelter nor militarily destabilize authoritarian regimesunless those regimes represent an imminent threat to the national security of other states. Developed states should instead work to create the conditions most favorable for a closed regimes safe passage through the least stable segment of the J curvehowever and whenever the slide toward instability comes. And developed states should minimize the risk these states pose the rest of the world as their transition toward modernity begins.

Ian Bremmer

America has never seen itself as a national state like all others, but rather as an experiment in human freedom and democracy.

Brent Scowcroft

Baseball, to me, is still the national pastime because it is a summer game. I feel that almost all Americans are summer people, that summer is what they think of when they think of their childhood. I think it stirs up an incredible emotion within people

Steve Busby

Now different races and nationalities cherish different ideals of society that stink in each other's nostrils with an offensiveness beyond the power of any but the most monstrous private deed.
