Although we must change the ways we protect our country, we must also guard against policies that appear attractive but offer little real protection and may even impede our ability to protect ourselves. -Richard Burr

What this country needs is a good five-cent nickel. -Franklin Pierce Adams

Then, in that hour of deliverance, my heart spoke. Does not such a country, and such defenders of their country, deserve a song? -Francis Scott Key

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

There's one political party in this country, and that's the corporate party. -John Hall

It's easy to create a country, all you have to do is to think of a name for it. -Robert Stone

Education in this country is about how to maintain the status quo and to perpetuate racism. -Jane Elliot

We have in this country a federal government that increasingly is engaged in trying to determine which business, which regions, which industries will succeed, which will not through a whole range of economic development, regional development corporate subsidization programs. -Stephen Harper

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 Hancock

I am dying, but with a strong hope and persuasion that my country will gain her independence. -David Wooster

In Spain, the dead are more alive than the dead of any other country in the world. -Federico Garcia Lorca

I think it does work. The fact that the law is there and injustices can be rectified, I think has a lot to do with the fact that the people in this country aren't as frustrated as they are in some of these places in Eastern Europe and don't resort to violent revolution. -Harold H. Greene

I only travel to good material, a good director and a good company. I won't work in another country for a year any longer, because I have a lovely wife and I adore her and I can't bear to be away from her. -Jim Dale

Cervantes smiled Spain's chivalry away; A single laugh demolished the right arm Of his country. -Lord Byron

A man may be a tough, concentrated, successful money-maker and never contribute to his country anything more than a horrible example. -Robert Menzies

Rather than hearing from the city council president, you'd hear from sources all across the country. -Jack Kelley

It means so much being a part of country music and the Opry. -Martina McBride

Federal elections happen every two years in this country. Presidential elections every four years. And four years just isn't long enough to dismantle all the environmental laws we've got in this country. -Jared Diamond

Unfortunately, the real focus in this country has not been on the rest of the world. It's been on our own issues and our own problems. Fair enough. But it means that our simple hopes that everything will just work out abroad aren't really coming to pass. -Jeffrey Sachs

The basic idea was that if a country would put its economy as an integrated piece of the world system, that it would benefit from that with economic growth. I concur with that basic view. -Jeffrey Sachs

If anybody doubts my loyalty to my country, I'll punch him in the nose, and I don't care how old he is. -William Wyler

It's a free country and I can keep my mouth shut whenever I want. -James Van Der Beek

If all goes well, the Iraqis are going to have a country that's going to have a representative government and will be at peace with its neighbors and in the region. -Douglas Feith

I am willing to serve my country, but do not wish to sacrifice the brave men under my command. -John Buford

I have not been able to get any grain yet. It is all in the country, and the people talk instead of working. -John Buford

Therefore, every country has to understand that fighting against international terrorism is not for the sake of the United States, but for the sake of themselves, and, to a larger extent, in the name of stability of international relations. -Omar Bongo

Because the world is in economic recession, which worsened since this drama happened, and our country will bear the burden of all of these consequences. -Omar Bongo

My actions to promote peace, the mediation missions which I carried out during many conflicts, which very often occurred between brothers of the same country, are not driven by any ulterior motives or any calculations based on personal ambitions. -Omar Bongo

So I learnt a few country western songs, I bought a chord book, and right away I started writing my own stuff, which nobody else did that, I don't know why. -John Fahey

Qaddafi is hated because he is the leader of a small country that is rich, but he uses his money to finance liberation struggles. -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

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

Every country that has experimented with women in actual combat has abandoned the idea, and the notion that Israel uses women in combat is a feminist myth. -Phyllis Schlafly

I don't understand the Democrats' approach to Social Security in this country, and I'm not alone. -William Weld

I suggest to you that increasing the size of America's economic pie – which can be achieved only if everybody has a seat at the table – is the most important challenge facing our country today. -William Weld

Generally speaking, historically in this country, the care of a child has been thought of as female business. -Eddie Bernice Johnson

I try hard to convince them it's important – but there's a history of discomfort with minorities voting in some parts of this country, so most especially the older people have to get accustomed to it. -Eddie Bernice Johnson

Our first phase was inviting all the women Ambassadors who were here from other countries and trying to get in touch with all the peace centers around the country in order to focus on increasing the volume and activity toward peace. -Eddie Bernice Johnson

People have a tendency to see country life through rose-colored glasses. -P. J. Harvey

In these confused times, the role of classical music is at the very core of the struggle to reassert cultural and ethical values that have always characterized our country and for which we have traditionally been honored and respected outside our shores. -Lorin Maazel

I think people are just really disappointed, disappointed with Blair as well, who's just like Bush's lapdog. I think everyone's just disillusioned with politics in our country, and it must be the same in your country. -Paul Weller

India happens to be a rich country inhabited by very poor people. -Manmohan Singh

The House passage of our bill is a victory for this country! Common sense wins out. I'm just so thrilled and excited. The sale of guns must stop. Halfway measures are not enough. -Sarah Brady

When I wrote the song, The Way It Is, I wanted to move people to take a stand on civil rights in this country. -Bruce Hornsby

The people of Nicaragua were suffering oppression. This made us develop an awareness which eventually led us to commit ourselves to the struggle against the domination of the capitalists of our country in collusion with the U.S. government, i.e. imperialism. -Daniel Ortega

I've done gospel singing. I have a gospel album and country album. -Donna Douglas

We are regarded as a Third World country with First World living conditions. -Pauline Hanson

We have one of the highest interest rates in the world, and we owe more money per capita than any other country. All we need is a nail hole in the bottom of the boat and we're sunk. -Pauline Hanson

I mean, it is an extraordinary thing that a large proportion of your country and my country, of the citizens, never see a wild creature from dawn 'til dusk, unless it's a pigeon, which isn't really wild, which might come and settle near them. -David Attenborough

Of course, in the United States, which at the time was a very young country, there were also class distinctions. They weren't as pronounced, but they quickly evolved as well. -Iris Chang

There isn't much discussion of ruling class in America even in Boston, probably one of the most class-conscious cities in the country? -Iris Chang

It was clear that the special interest groups in California really wanted the Chinese to be shut out of the country, because that was where the racial tension was the greatest. -Iris Chang

Now, most of the new immigrants coming to this country are from Asia as opposed to Europe. -Iris Chang

There isn't much in the way of pure communist spirit, because the whole nation seems to be engaged in capitalistic enterprises. Much of the country still operates under government control. -Iris Chang

The time frame is very small to disarm the militia, to bring about a security situation in which the governing council, the 24 Iraqis or however many others they appoint, can govern the country. -Richard Lugar

I think our failure in the production of good town churches of distinctive character must have struck you often, as it has me, when contrasted with our comparative success in country churches. -George Edmund Street

The fault seems to me to have been that men have taken ancient country churches as their models and have failed to discover that between them and churches in towns there ought to be a most distinct and marked difference. -George Edmund Street

As of essential importance in town churches which are not at all equally necessary in the country. -George Edmund Street

Our country – whether bounded by the St. John's and the Sabine, or however otherwise bounded or described, and be the measurements more or less; – still our country, to be cherished in all our hearts, and to be defended by all our hands. -Robert Charles Winthrop

I don't know if there was even a hundred million dollars in the whole country! -Sylvia Sidney

If we really love and cherish Taiwan, we should hold our hands in unity to protect our country and our democratic values with the most humble and tolerant hearts. -Chen Shui-bian

Taiwan is an independent sovereign country. -Chen Shui-bian

But to be self-obsessed is simply not o.k. for the most important country in the world, the United States, which affects every other country in the world. -Christiane Amanpour

For instance, why are we terrorizing this country, leading with murder and mayhem, when crime is actually on the decline, as somebody, as somebody mentioned? -Christiane Amanpour

Throughout the country, I see the same design problems and solutions over and over. -Douglas Wilson

I think that between the egos of the actors and the wrestlers in this country we are taking away from the truly dedicated and informed people who should be getting their voice heard. -Dwayne Hickman

It was this society and culture that among other things – including economic opportunities here and repression in Europe – attracted subsequent generations of immigrants to this country. -Samuel P. Huntington

Yet our small business owners across the country are unfairly losing potential interest income on a daily basis until the Business Checking Freedom Act becomes law. -Sue Kelly

We have increased conservation spending, enacted legislation that enables us to clean up and redevelop abandoned brownfields sites across the country, and implemented new clean water standards that will protect us from arsenic. -Sue Kelly

On that show, I did country and some rock, too, whatever record I had out at the time, I'd sing that. -Wanda Jackson

The principal or highest part of the mountain having changed its direction to east and west, I ascended it in such manner as to leave its most elevated ranges to the south and travelled north west over a very rough and broken country generally covered with snow. -William Henry Ashley

It appears from Mr. Smith's account that there is no scarcity of buffalo as he penetrated the country. -William Henry Ashley

On my passage thither, I discovered nothing remarkable in the features of the country. -William Henry Ashley

There's a place for all types of country music as long as there is honesty and realness and a real human experience for the fans. -Wynonna Judd

I am very proud of what we have built in Spain, because it is not a traditional Formula 1 country. I think we have found passionate fans, and built up a strong culture for the sport – and things are improving every day, with more and more people getting interested. -Fernando Alonso

I don't think I'll ever escape the fact that I don't belong anywhere in particular. I've often dreamed about going back to Nigeria, but that's a very romantic notion. It's a hideous country to go to in reality. -Hugo Weaving

Saddam's fate should be in the hands of his country men. They were the major victims of his brutal reign and should decide his life, death, or permanent imprisonment. Personally, I would lock him away forever. -Ronnie James Dio

India is a curious place that still preserves the past, religions, and its history. No matter how modern India becomes, it is still very much an old country. -Anita Desai

Well I actually do have a country house in Connecticut with a population of 3,000. Like, how small is that? I spend a lot of time there – I write up there. So I kind of have the best of both worlds and I love going up there. -Candace Bushnell

The president strongly believes that marriage in this country ought to be between a man and a woman. He also believes it is something that ought to be decided by the people. He doesn't believe that judges ought to impose their will on the people. -Ken Mehlman

They decided to let immigrants in and I am an immigrant. They gave us a chance to participate in this country's life and I took it. -Ayaan Hirsi Ali

I respect a system that says we're going to put every bit of pressure on anybody we have to put it on to get to the drug dealer who is bringing his poison into the country. -Bill McCollum

I got fed up with being in bands. I spent a couple of years touring the country in a smoked filled band, doing lots of drugs and being really unhealthy. -Cliff Martinez

How do you tell troops who volunteered to fight for our freedoms that the country they fought for won't take care of them when they come back? In the time of war our troops and their families are supposed to be our number one priority. -John Salazar

It took a deadly illness to put me eye to eye with that truth, but it is a truth that the country, caught up in its ruthless ambitions and moral decay, can learn on my dime. -Lee Atwater

The whole thing was done for internal political reasons to galvanize and unify the country against the Americans, and if they hadn't had that immediate opportunity they would have found another one. -Lloyd Cutler

Sir Hugh Greene is the man I hold most responsible for the state of our country today. For 11 years hardly a week went by without a sniping reference to me. And he gave access to anyone who was prepared to say anything morally subversive. -Mary Whitehouse

I'm not a politician. I'm not a lawyer. I'm just a country boy. -Max Burns

People make these comments all the time. They talk about this with their loved ones every day. People's feedings – tube feedings – are stopped across this country every day. -Michael Schiavo

What they're doing is, they're making the decisions for us. That's what this country is coming down to. They're going to make the decisions for us. -Michael Schiavo

I've now been in this country for thirteen years, since I was seventeen. So this is my second home. -Hakeem Olajuwon

I'm truly worried about the country's direction. I can tell you this categorically, we've got the weakest president and the weakest governor in the history of my 50 years of public service. -Fritz Hollings

No man is a hero in his own country. -John Monash

Every country possesses, it seems, the sort of cuisine it deserves, which is to say the sort of cuisine it is appreciative enough to want. -Waverley Lewis Root

I like to sing. I write music. Country songs. You have to if you're in Nashville. It's part of the lease. You sign a lease that says, I will write country songs and pay my rent on time. -Jim Varney

The event of the landing of these brethren upon our shores is to be, not without its beneficial effect, as well to the colored population of this country, as it promises to be to ill-fated Africa. -Lewis Tappan

Along with that ongoing process Sinn Fein took a decision to establish a peace commission which had the responsibility to travel around the country to receive submissions from the general public, also our opponents. -Martin McGuinness

Why is America such a great country. It is because we stand united. -Martin Yan

It's an odd state to be in, blowing the whistle on your home country. -Michael Ondaatje

My mother had been a country and western singer but when she moved out to Hollywood found it very difficult to get work so when I was born they put me into dance classes and singing classes as soon as I could walk actually. -Morgan Brittany

The American people are going to judge the majority party here today. If they go out here and vote for this rule that allows this provision to be stricken, they are voting against the men and women in the military of our country. -Norm Dicks

Deep down I have this atavistic feeling that really I should be in the country. -Penelope Lively

I have had to empty two family homes during the last few years – first, the house that had been my grandmother's since 1923, and then my own country home, which we had lived in for over twenty years. -Penelope Lively

Basically I am a private individual who has concerns about his country and who has resources that give me the privilege – and responsibility – to do something to help my country if I can. -Richard Scaife

Given what the media have put the country through this past decade, it must come as a surprise to most Americans that the press has a code of ethics. -Roger Mudd

I really think that women should be allowed to be more European, in this country. -Sally Kirkland

On the other hand I have seen several, several top targets for these investigations of these terrorist activities that were allowed to leave the country – I'm not talking about weeks, I'm talking about months after 9/11. -Sibel Edmonds

But I can tell that once, and if, and when this issue gets to be, under real terms, investigated, you will be seeing certain people that we know from this country standing trial; and they will be prosecuted criminally. -Sibel Edmonds

It wasn't simply that Clinton created the greatest prosperity in the country's history. Or that we created 22 million new jobs, more than ever before. Under Clinton, poverty was reduced 25%. -Sidney Blumenthal

It was the biggest suppression of voting rights in our country's history since Jim Crow. And the thread of race runs from the beginning to the end of my book. -Sidney Blumenthal

There's no way to be able to tell what it's like to be a country singer until you're walking in the shoes. -Tanya Tucker

We've got great fans that rock and roll won't have, because you can have a one-hit record and country music used to, not so much anymore and you have a fan forever. -Tanya Tucker

We have terrorists coming into the country both through our Northern and Southern borders. -Tom Tancredo

Now how many people in their heart of hearts in that community want to see the demise of this country? How many would cheer, not out loud maybe, but in their heart when things like 9/11 occur and I'll tell you; it's a majority among them. -Tom Tancredo

We strain to tell Americans and aliens in this country that there's nothing unique about America, nothing unique about American civilization, nothing that requires their allegiance, nothing of great value that they should sacrifice for. -Tom Tancredo

They view massive immigration as a massive infusion of potential voters for the Democratic Party, and therefore will do nothing, absolutely nothing to stop that flow of legal or illegal entrance into the country. -Tom Tancredo

The Church has never changed its teaching on the sanctity of human life – it didn't make up a rule for the convenience of a particular time like a rule at a country club as the Governor would have us believe. -Wellington Mara

I had to do something for the country. -Hanoi Hannah

It's more important to try to do something for the crores of poor people of my country. -Imran Khan

There's a greatness in this country many of the kids today don't know. -Jack Scalia

My family has served the country in almost every major war since the Civil War. -Jack Scalia

But this country is a great country and will always rebound. -Jack Scalia

No other country on earth could have provided such tremendous opportunities and we should never take the privilege of our citizenship for granted. -Jane D. Hull

Today, Arizona's sons and daughters, mothers and fathers are proudly serving their country. -Jane D. Hull

The attack and our response show just how vital Arizona's military bases are to the defense of our country. We need to do everything we can to protect them. -Jane D. Hull

But the truth of the matter is that there is there is an opportunity for them to participate in the economic and political future of the country and certainly in the security life of the country. -John Abizaid

I think you will see a lot of strains develop in the political process that will result in violence everywhere in the country – but it's controllable, it's workable and it will lead to a much better future for these people. -John Abizaid

As you look around the country there are still a significant number of states where their whole school debate is over school funding and we've been focused on the quality debate for most of the '90s. -John Engler

I've gone from being one of the youngest governors to now the longest consecutive serving governor in the country. -John Engler

But sometimes in the midst of worry, anxiety and hard work, it has been pretty hard to bear all these false reports going about the country – to see my friends alienated and being made to believe things that were absolutely false. -John Harvey Kellogg

Culture, which makes talent shine, is not completely ours either, nor can we place it solely at our disposal. Rather, it belongs mainly to our country, which gave it to us, and to humanity, from which we receive it as a birthright. -Jose Marti

It is, and long has been my opinion, and I have heard honourable members in this House declare it to be theirs – that it is the duty of Parliament equally to protect all the different interests in the country. -Joseph Hume

With an open trade in corn and a fixed duty we should have every man in the country fully fed and happy, instead of our present situation in which so much distress exists – distress of our own producing. -Joseph Hume

In Great Britain the price of food is at a higher level than in any other country, and consequently, the British artisan labours at a disadvantage in proportion to the higher rate of his food. -Joseph Hume

Worse there cannot be; a better, I believe, there may be, by giving energy to the capital and skill of the country to produce exports, by increasing which, alone, can we flatter ourselves with the prospect of finding employment for that part of our population now unemployed. -Joseph Hume

But these days, I get a lot more attention and airplay from the Adult Contemporary and country radio stations, and I feel comfortable saying I'm a part of that. -Juice Newton

I am in favor, heartily in favor, of our Constitution and Bill of Rights and I owe my allegiance to my country at all times. -Julius Rosenberg

I would like to state that my personal opinions are that the people of every country should decide by themselves what kind of government they want. -Julius Rosenberg

I don't regard myself as a great classical or jazz pianist. I like country music, but I'm not a great player. I just like music. Drums 'n' bass is pretty exciting and I'd love to explore it. -Keith Emerson

I think we have very steady records of President Putin, who inherited the country with democratic values. -Garry Kasparov

More and more people in my country recognise the dangers of having their governors appointed by Putin and having no influence in parliament because Parliament today is also following instructions from Kremlin and no longer represents its people. -Garry Kasparov

If you make a decision to fight for future of your own country you have to consider all the consequences. -Garry Kasparov

I wouldn't overestimate the importance of my popularity in the country and abroad but at the end of the day it's not as important because I believe that my presence here could make some difference and it could encourage people. -Garry Kasparov

I have some strategical vision, I could calculate some few moves ahead and I have an intellect that is badly missed in the country which is run by generals and colonels. -Garry Kasparov

I learned that fighting on the chess board could also have an impact on the political climate in the country. -Garry Kasparov

Our country stands at a critical point in its history. Our heritage as a nation of immigrants is at stake. -Roger Mahony

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

The fey in this country keep to themselves, and are a separate nation, much like the American Indians, but with even more autonomy. -Laurell K. Hamilton

If the government decides to put your life under a microscope, do you think it won't find something? I suspect there's not an adult in the country who would walk away totally unscathed if every aspect of his or her life were investigated the way Stewart's ImClone trading was. -Allan Sloan

I know General Grant better than any other person in the country can know him. It was my duty to study him, and I did so day and night, when I saw him and when I did not see him, and now I tell you what I know, he cannot govern this country. -Edwin M. Stanton

I was born and trained to communicate music, just as the sons were born and trained to hunt, and I was lucky to have grown up in Hungary, a country that lives and breathes music-that has a passionate belief in the power of music as a celebration of life. -Georg Solti

But one day, when I was still young, I was parted from my family and left my native country. I hunted and searched for music, and destiny turned me into the object of my hunt. The circumstances of life became my 'antlers' and prevented me from returning home. -Georg Solti
