I worry about younger generations who were born to view their country trampling on humanity of everyone that comes in its way, as the 'normal state of affairs" - because they knew no other. We know how easy it is to shed, under such circumstances, the thin and frail veneer of civilization, not to mention the moral standards of which the Jews were presumed to be the world's teachers.
The proof of my Jewishness is that iniquities done by Israel pain me much more than iniquities perpetrated by any other country.
There were so many bands in New Orleans. But most of the musicians had day jobs, you know - trades. They were bricklayers and carpenters and cigar makers and plasterers. Some had little businesses of their own - coal and wood and vegetable stores. Some worked on the cotton exchange and some were porters. They had to work at other trades 'cause there were so many musicians, so many bands. It was the most musical town in the country.
To build a country, [Joseph] Stalin was obliged to use force and kill. Mao Tse-tung was obliged to use force and kill. To mention only two recent cases, without raking over the whole history of the world.
Every government, every country, has the right to exercise force when necessary.
Tikka Khan won't try to stick his nose in politics.
Indian hotels are doing well globally because they understand hospitality.
I hate that we look at women who choose not to run a country as having given up. I get angry that, when a woman decides to hold off on gunning for a promotion because she wants to have a baby, other women whisper that 'she's throwing away her potential.' That is when we're not supporting our own. Who are we to put such a limited definition on success?
I still have in me the same awareness when I was 12 and chubby and a girl was spitting in my face. I'm the same person.
If you're eight and you live in Los Angeles and everybody has toys and you go to a country that has a Marxist dictatorship and there are no toy stores and nobody speaks English and it's blazing hot every day and they only have fish, which you don't like, then you tend not to appreciate the cultural lessons you're learning.
If the nation is rich but people are poor, the country cannot be strong, and society will be unstable.
The public doesn't have to be hostile to the rich. "Robbing the rich to help the poor' will only drive the rich away to other countries along with their money. As a matter of fact, their wealth should be respected. All wealth in China belongs to the country.
Whoever creates an artificial intelligence first has such a distinct military advantage over every other nation on the planet that they will forever, or they will at least indefinitely, rule the planet. It's very important that a nice country, a democratic country, develops A.I. first, to protect other A.I.'s from developing that might be negative, or evil, or used for military purposes.
There are a lot of great organizations who are fighting for food and environmental safety in this country. The Environmental Working Group, Just Label It, Food Democracy Now, and the Center for Food Safety, to name a few.
I went to a school in Miami that seemed like a private country club. The whole cheerleader, football player, clique-y thing there was terrifying. Those people were so scary. They're the scariest kinds of people because they are idolized by their peers. They have everything, they have money, and they're just mean-spirited. It's crazy.
I'm a New Yorker; I've paid my dues.
You don't need a team leader, you need quality.
When you buy me, you are buying a Ferrari. If you drive a Ferrari you put premium fuel in the tank, you drive onto the motorway and you floor the accelerator. Guardiola filled up with diesel and went for a spin in the countryside. If that's what he wanted, he should have bought himself a Fiat from the start.
To be recognised by a whole country is incredible. This is massive.
We are well aware of the task ahead of us in what will be a very difficult match but which we all dream of playing.
The only important thing I have to say is that my father never fought against his country.
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.
I have never had the opportunity to play in England, so I know little about it.
I'm not an American, Do they count the votes in America? I haven't voted in Jamaica either.
You may think I'm brave. But in the eyes of many people back in my country I am a coward. They think, this man gave so much freedom to his daughter, he broke all the traditions of our society.
The noble person who has eaten of his lord's bounty should die in his lord's battles; to return to one's home dead and wrapped in a horse's hide is a happy fate. Am I the sort of people to bring to nought the grand designs of my country?
All diplomacy is a continuation of war by other means.
If our country's choice is to be a Great Power, Russia will be the great power not because of the nuclear potential, not because of faith in God or president, or western investments but thanks to the labor of the nation, faith in Knowledge and Science and thanks to the maintenance and development of scientific potential and education.
The Chinese people will be busy with their own affairs for generations to come and there is no need at all for the country to threaten anybody or any nation.
Country [China] needs to continue opening up and keep connecting. It needs to realize that the world has become one. The old concept of isolation, the idea that you can solve your problems on your own does not work anymore - neither in cultural, economic, nor political terms.
Isolation means a lack of growth. I grew up in China at a time when the country was completely isolated. That era is over.
Because people along the route had realized that there was demand and quickly organized supply. That's so Chinese. In a well-organized country like Germany, such a problem may not have arisen in the first place, but in China people immediately recognized an opportunity.
As a school board member, I might have particular views about the ways we might increase the economics curriculum in a local high school, but I'm not sure I should mandate that for the entire country.
Public education is so important - resisting privatization and charterization, high-stakes testing, and defunding. It's important for New York, but it's also important for the country.
What happens in New York affects national policy in very significant ways.
Well, I am not sure of when my album will be released but my music has a lot of different sounds. I'm a hip-hop/R&B girl at heart, but I love pop music as well, and I even have an affinity for country music. So I would say my music might have something for everyone.
We have to build the country that we want to see our future children and grandchildren live in.
Howard Dean knows about as much about the South as a hog knows about Sunday.
A country inn is a percolator. News seeps, simmers, and bubbles.
May Heaven be propitious, and smile on the cause of my country.
