Whether Canada ends up as o-ne national government or two national governments or several national governments, or some other kind of arrangement is, quite frankly, secondary in my opinion. -Stephen Harper

The dissolution of the nation destroys the national religion, and dethrones the national deity. -William Robertson Smith

We are so accustomed to think of religion as a thing between individual men and God that we can hardly enter into the idea of a religion in which a whole nation in its national organisation appears as the religious unit. -William Robertson Smith

The stadiums are like none I've ever seen. I think there must have been some strong competition nationally between Korea and Japan to make the best facilities because they are very well designed. -Lamar Hunt

National film industries tend to move in cycles. In Australia right now, we're on a high, a feeling of potential, which as yet shows no sign of flagging. But the word 'industry' is misleading. A small national cinema has no industry in the Hollywood sense. -Peter Weir

If there is any fixed star in our constitutional constellation, it is that no official, high or petty, can prescribe what shall be orthodox in politics, nationalism, religion, or other matters of opinion, or force citizens to confess by word or act. -Robert Jackson

I would argue that television and particularly the BBC were instrumental in puffing up the Royal Family to a level where they were inflated out of all, all proportion to their relevance on the national scene. -Andrew Morton

I condemn the national gay press for its emphasis on consumerism. -Harry Hay

The whole of our national sport is not doing very well. -Ted Dexter

AIDS and malaria and TB are national security issues. A worldwide program to get a start on dealing with these issues would cost about $25 billion… It's, what, a few months in Iraq. -Jared Diamond

In the early 1990s, when a lot of the developing world opened up to international capital flows… they ended up in very good long-term projects, but projects that weren't going to pay off for five or 10 or 20 years. -Jeffrey Sachs

In Asia, a lot of successful economies that had been living on their own saving, decided to open up their financial markets to international capital in the early 1990s. So here were countries doing quite well, but they decided they'd borrow a bit more and do even better. -Jeffrey Sachs

I was born in Cincinnati, Ohio. My family was not nationally known as being a literary family, though my mother and my mother's side of the family in general were interested in literature. -Kenneth Koch

Our national media refuses to report that even the Supreme Court did not say marriage was a human right in all cases nor did it say that the heterosexual definition violated anyone's right or that the heterosexual definition of marriage was unconstitutional. -Stockwell Day

Since stepping down as laboratory director in 1999, I have devoted an increasing fraction of my time to international issues. I am involved with energy, environment, and sustainability issues, particularly as they involve new energy sources free of greenhouse gases. -Burton Richter

However fragmented the world, however intense the national rivalries, it is an inexorable fact that we become more interdependent every day. -Jacques Yves Cousteau

I believe that national sovereignties will shrink in the face of universal interdependence. -Jacques Yves Cousteau

War springs from the love and loyalty which should be offered to God being applied to some God substitute, one of the most dangerous being nationalism. -Robert Runcie

The key to making the inspections work is the Iraqi government making the crucial decision that because of the international pressure Iraq has to disarm itself. -Douglas Feith

A lot of the things that we've been able to do in the last several years were Democratic ideas, including the structure for this new director of national intelligence. -Jane Harman

The Committee's review of a series of intelligence shortcomings, to include intelligence prior to 9/11 and the pre-war intelligence on Iraq, clearly reveal how vital a diverse intelligence workforce is to our national security. -Jane Harman

It is not right to associate the fight against international terrorist networks with an imaginary crusade against Islam. -Omar Bongo

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

It was not long before I was struck with the idea that base ball was just the game for a national sport for Americans. -Henry Chadwick

It would be easy to define terrorism as attacks against human rights and international humanitarian law forbids attacks against innocent non-combatants which is often the definition used for terrorism. -Joichi Ito

History offers no evidence for the proposition that the assignment of women to military combat jobs is the way to win wars, improve combat readiness, or promote national security. -Phyllis Schlafly

I dare say that a majority of the American people think that having a fair hearing on an issue of importance in our relations with Mexico is extremely important to our national interest, as well as theirs. -William Weld

Our cultural diversity has most certainly shaped our national character. -Julie Bishop

I spent my first twenty years in Morocco, where I coached the national team. -Just Fontaine

The Iraqi people are living a long-running tragedy because of the legacy of the old regime, the Americans and their actions that are unsuitable for Iraqi society, and the weakness of national resolve. -Ahmed Chalabi

I call on the international community to be fair to the Iraqi people. My position is that we respect international resolutions but in return demand justice and accountability for those who stole Iraq's money. -Ahmed Chalabi

U.S. journalists I don't think are very courageous. They tend to go along with the government's policy domestically and internationally. To question is seen as being unpatriotic, or potentially subversive. -Robert Fisk

I am not against Muslim schools. But as I believe in integration, I think we would be better off overall if we did not have denominational schools at all. -Frank Dobson

I need to keep my story count high. I'm trying to get as many stories in my hour as is humanly possible. We're telling more stories in our hour than any national newscast has in the history of this business, I think. -Shepard Smith

Transnational, gigantic industrial companies no longer operate within political systems, but rather above them. -Georg Henrik von Wright

To me, it is a process, a process that starts with raising awareness, engaging international partners on this issue, and being committed to a different course of action. -Alexis Herman

It helps when 1 can send the children off to their fathers so I can support my new book with a national publicity tour. I started writing the book when my daughter was 5. It took me almost four years. -Meg Tilly

We're nondenominational. I come from Northern Ireland, and we've had religious wars for years. I didn't want to create an illusion that my God is better than your God. So our show is a spiritual show, not a religious show. -Roma Downey

The money was good while it lasted. The best part was clearly that it changed my view of what's possible, as far as thinking how you can have an impact on a national level. -Andrew Shue

The name of 'reform' simply covers what is latently a process of the theft of the national heritage. -Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

And my father, after all, was a nationalist. -Heinrich Mann

Not only did I get to play with these great international musicians, but I also had the opportunity to jam with the local celebrities in Toronto, people like the Walsh Brothers, David Wilcox, Kim Mitchell and the like. It was a great learning experience. -Jeff Healey

Corporate nationalism to me is a little bit like what would have happened if Hitler had won. It's scary stuff. It's totalitarianism in a different from, under a different flavour. -Lance Henriksen

Well firstly, that points certainly at the need for international standards on biometrics that would move in the same direction so that we can have the same technical requirements. -Asa Hutchinson

The national debate on Social Security has been cheapened by demagoguery on all sides. -Bill Delahunt

Obviously, there has to be a profound change in direction. Otherwise, interest on the national debt will start eating up virtually every penny that we have. -Bobby Scott

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

I believe that this is not only the view of the people on both sides of the Strait. It is also the common expectation of the US, Japan and the international community. -Chen Shui-bian

I was for two years a pupil at the Model School in Fort street which was then conducted upon the Irish national system, and if any special religious instruction was given in connection with that system, I do not recollect it. -Edmund Barton

The difference between the denominational system and the public school system is all the difference between bolstering them up on the one hand and letting them alone of the other. -Edmund Barton

I was working for the Socialist International, after I left university in 1959, as a researcher. -Stephen Lewis

The War on Terror is one of the most critical national security efforts in our history. -Sue Kelly

Violence is not to be undertaken by private persons. If a state or administration acts without due and visible attention to agreed international process, it acts in a way analogous to a private person. It purports to be judge of its own interest. -Rowan Williams

We have always been a great national party, with views on all the main issues. We recognise that what matters to people most are those things that affect their daily lives: schools, hospitals, transport and law and order and we have plenty to say about them. -John Redwood

We seriously suspect the agents of the Americans and Israelis in conducting such horrendous terrorist acts and cannot believe the people who kidnap Philippines nationals, for instance, or behead U.S. nationals are Muslims. -Ali Khamenei

The vote, cast in a free atmosphere and with all inclinations and parties at present, was after all a vote to the Islamic Republic, to national independence, to the Constitution and to the Islamic causes. -Ali Khamenei

China's cinema has been rising for some time; it has more exposure, so my chances of becoming internationally known are better. But the first thing I have to do is learn English. If I can grasp the language, then perhaps I can think about the U.S. -Zhang Ziyi

Promoting the interaction of orders remains one of the most difficult, but crucially important, challenges we face concerning our national market system. -Arthur Levitt

Bosses are no more inevitable in state and local governments than dictators are in national governments. They will arise and prosper, nevertheless, if true believers of democracy – citizens devoted to the democratic ideals – do not constantly oppose them. -Charles Edison

But as the arms-control scholar Thomas Schelling once noted, two things are very expensive in international life: promises when they succeed and threats when they fail. -Fareed Zakaria

Our young people have come to look upon war as a kind of beneficent deity, which not only adds to the national honor but uplifts a nation and develops patriotism and courage. -Rebecca Harding Davis

Our village was built on the Ohio River, and was a halting place on this great national road, then the only avenue of traffic between the South and the North. -Rebecca Harding Davis

Before Sunrise did very well internationally. It made as much in Italy and Korea as it did here. -Richard Linklater

Clinton was very early on aware of the problem of international terrorism. -Sidney Blumenthal

Dick Clarke, who was head of counter-terrorism in the National Security Council, pushed constantly for the Principals Committee, which is the key national security group of top officials to take up the issue of terrorism. -Sidney Blumenthal

A healthy and fully functioning society must allocate its resources among a variety of competing interests, all of which are more or less valid but none of which should take precedence over national security. -Herman Kahn

Because of new technologies, new wealth, new conditions of domestic life and of international relations, unprecedented criteria and issues are coming up for national decision. -Herman Kahn

Within minutes of the attack, your Department of Public Safety mobilized its Operations Center, headed by a national expert on weapons of mass destruction. -Jane D. Hull

Arizona is a national leader in school choice with both charter schools and tuition tax credits giving parents and their children more school choices than ever before. -Jane D. Hull

All 50 states had the same national economy. And on virtually any measurement you wish to look at, Michigan has moved up and improved against the others. -John Engler

A national evil requires a national remedy; let not this any longer be delayed: let your minds expand, free from every narrow principle, and let the public good become the sole object of your united Christian efforts. -Joseph Lancaster

The war on terrorism has made national security a legitimate concern, and a rising deficit, changes brought on by globalization and even the price of oil have thrown the nation's economic health into question. -Roger Mahony

During the first six years of my life, Hungary was one of the most important components of the Habsburg dynasty's vast Austro-Hungarian Empire, but after World War I it became an independent national entity. -Georg Solti

Extreme nationalism and Bolshevism have broken up the old world, a new world is in the making. It is literally true that old things are passing away; all things may become new, granted we have wise, unselfish, and determined guides. -John Mott

Such highly qualitative leadership is demanded especially in the realm of the fostering of right international relations. Here the demand is simply irresistible. -John Mott

Peace Corps helps promote global acceptance of the principles of international peace and non-violent co-existence among people of diverse cultures and systems of government. -Sam Farr

We can't fool ourselves that they will ever be enough to overthrow Capitalism. If we're serious about that we need to organise ourselves in our workplaces and communities, making the links with other workers internationally. -John Blair

However, the radio and national media depend much more on the hype from a good record label, and from a ' buzz ' about a band, then from just one or two good shows. There are a lot of artists that have a ton of good press going for them, and still do not make it big in the US. -Pat Garrett

Our challenge in this regard will be to broaden the scope of our federal funds in terms of international diplomacy, development aid, and international assistance. Many Latinos in the United States look at Latin America and see trouble brewing. -Bob Menendez

We believe very passionately that an international approach is necessary to achieve some of these goals. -Bob Menendez

We should seek international support for our mutual objectives abroad, in promoting freedom, democracy, respect for human rights, and also the elimination of weapons of mass destruction. -Bob Menendez

The Arab world also won the Nobel with me. I believe that international doors have opened, and that from now on, literate people will consider Arab literature also. We deserve that recognition. -Naguib Mahfouz

Any Mexican, would recognise that Mexico was abused, undervalued and downgraded in international circles, most of all by the United States. -Adolfo Aguilar Zinser

I haven't done an international film for a long time. -Sadie Frost

The notion of a neutral, mainstream national media gained dominance only in World War II and in its aftermath, when what turned out to be a temporary moderate consensus came to govern the country. -Howard Fineman

We are aware that many national farm organizations are putting forth various plans to provide both short- and long-term relief to our nation's agricultural producers. While we believe long-term solutions are essential, the current situation demands a more immediate response. -Mel Carnahan

The sublimated idealism of the Enlightenment, the spirit of the League of Nations and of the United Nations Charter have not proved strong enough to control the aggressive dynamism of nationalism. -Christopher Dawson

No doubt Western civilization has in the past been full of wars and revolutions, and the national elements in our culture, even when they were ignored, always provided an unconscious driving force of passion and aggressive self-assertion. -Christopher Dawson

The greatest obstacle to international understanding is the barrier of language. -Christopher Dawson

You know, many people have called me, friends from the nationalist camp, revisionists and so on, from around the world, have called me over the years – and now again because of what happened – and they are all very cynical about the police and the authorities. -Ernst Zundel

I am, as a European, absolutely shocked by European people. I am also shocked by European nationalist people. They have allowed themselves to be so emasculated so silently. -Ernst Zundel

Baseball has long been a national pastime that many Americans have cherished. -Jim Sensenbrenner

Two thirds of a century ago, we were given a national policy. It was made to fit the conditions of the day. -John Bracken

And when they do spin out of control there are important ramifications that affect America, not just its direct national interest but its broader interests as a nation which has thought of itself as a beacon to other nations, of freedom, liberty, democracy, whatever. -John Pomfret

I think that's the main threat in Bosnia and Rwanda and Zaire. There doesn't seem to be much willingness to engage these problems unless they directly affect national security interests. -John Pomfret

The people of Australia would be staggered to learn that Australia has no national development plan. -Lionel Murphy

The two most important things that can be done to promote democracy in the world is first, to bring moral clarity back to world affairs and second, to link international policies to the advance of democracy around the globe. -Natan Sharansky

If there is anything worse than international warfare, is civil warfare, and the United States was destined to experience it in the extreme of bitterness. -Paul P. Harris

What our Republican friends are doing, if we look at what they do and not what they say, they have decided that the most important thing in this country is to increase payments for interest on the national debt. -Tom Allen

Mercury pollution from power plants is a national problem that requires a national response. -Tom Allen

That's because international Islamic religious fanatics have the same goal as the Axis fascists – the destruction of our way of life. -David Hackworth

I want to compliment The Heritage Foundation for its work on behalf of a strong national defense. -Don Nickles

But the federal government, our collective government, has responsibilities that none of these other levels of government can fulfill; and chief among these is national defense. -Don Nickles

Instrumental music can spread the international language. -Herb Alpert

We can have tax cuts, but when we have tax cuts and do not have a surplus, the amount of the tax cut goes straight to the bottom line, adds to the deficit, and the deficit adds to the national debt, and sooner or later, the debt has to be paid. -John Spratt

What we are effectively doing, I say this to the young people of America whom my colleagues represent, is leaving our children and grandchildren the tab for fighting a war, letting them pay for the lion's share of it by simply adding it to the national debt. -John Spratt

One of the reasons I continue to speak out is that the solutions to the counterterrorism problem involve other parts of the national security community – especially other elements of the Department of Defense, State, FBI, Homeland Security and the staff. -John Poindexter

The moral and spiritual aspects of both personal and international relationships have a practical bearing which so-called practical men deny. -Henry A. Wallace

Like other antitrust agencies we make our assessment of a merger or antitrust case based on its impact on our jurisdiction, and not on the nationality of the companies. This is exactly what the U.S. antitrust agencies, the Justice Department and the FTC, do. -Mario Monti

Reference to the territory and total disregard for the nationality of the companies is of course the best guarantee that competition assessment remain just that and doesn't get affected by trade or other considerations. -Mario Monti

As we realize that more and more things have global impact, I think we're going to get people increasingly wanting to get away from a purely national interest. -Peter Singer

I believe that nationalism is a very strong force, but there are other forces operating; there are tendencies pushing towards a larger picture, especially in Europe, I think; but I still think nationalism is real. -Peter Singer

I don't think nationalism is alone holding the field; it's in contention with a lot of different things. -Peter Singer

In a situation where many national leaders do the same thing and look out for national interests, and with an issue like global warming, you're likely to get no solution, so I think you have to have some kind of ethical trump on some of those issues. -Peter Singer

We are going to sign a treaty with Mexico. We are competing internationally. We need another international airport for international cargo, international travel, international businesses. -Richard M. Daley

Well, the problem of the federal government is that they print money and go in debt. That's their national policy, Democrats and Republicans it doesn't matter. And this is where I differ. -Richard M. Daley

I would argue that the next President, either Bush or Gore, should strike a 'national' posture, exhibiting generosity toward the defeated opponent, but proceeding with determination to implement an agenda. -Richard V. Allen

Our system provides for a winner to take office on January 20th, and he is expected to take command of the ship of state. Failure to do so, characterized by hesitation and indecision, will harm the national interest. -Richard V. Allen

The Reagan Administration, generally regarded as having conducted the most successful Transition of modern times, had managed during the election campaign to build bridges to the Democrats in some areas, notably foreign and national security policy. -Richard V. Allen

Music has always been transnational; people pick up whatever interests them, and certainly a lot of classical music has absorbed influences from all over the world. -Yo-Yo Ma

The tango is really a combination of many cultures, though it eventually became the national music of Argentina. -Yo-Yo Ma

Washington is a great international city and in the congregation we have people who are rich and poor, black and white, and from every part of the world. -James Green Somerville

The newspapers loved pinup pictures of pretty young swimmers, and as a national champion, I got more than my share of space in the sports pages. -Esther Williams

A war in the Taiwan Strait would destroy China's international relations overnight. It would destroy Chinese – Japanese relations, not to mention Chinese – American relations. -William C. Kirby

You could argue that war is always an irrational act, and yet many states enter into military conflict out of rational calculation or national interest or the stability or longevity of their regime. -William C. Kirby

Missouri remains a low tax, efficiently run state, according to all prominent national rankings. -Bob Holden

China has always maintained that all countries, big or small, rich or poor, strong or weak, are equal members of the international community and they should stand and speak in the world as such. -Li Peng

People of all countries have the right to choose their own social system and road to development in the light of their national conditions and characteristics. -Li Peng

There are nearly 200 countries and a population of over 6 billion in today's world. International affairs should be addressed by all countries through consultations rather than monopolised by a few powers. -Li Peng

Multi- polarisation has become an inevitable trend in the process of shaping a global political pattern and has been widely welcomed by the international community as it reflects the common interests and aspiration of the overwhelming majority of countries. -Li Peng

In the new century, we should continue to work together to safeguard the legitimate rights and interests of the vast number of developing countries including China and India and promote the establishment of a just and equitable new international political and economic order. -Li Peng

We support every effort to combat international terrorism through the formulation of international conventions and hope that the international community will take further steps to improve the anti-terrorism international legal framework. -Li Peng

We are ready to engage in international co-operation against terrorism with a view to safeguarding national interests and regional security and stability. -Li Peng

We asked ourselves and the world to base decisions on good science, and I really believe the United States can be the leader in delivering that message to our international trading partners. -Mike Johanns

Science is the international language, so when we are able to convince countries that good decision-making for human health and animal health is based upon science, that's a real success story for us. -Mike Johanns

America has faced much more difficult times, including potential national extinction, without flinching. -Nick Clooney

In our Constitution governmental power is divided among three separate branches of the national government, three separate branches of State governments, and the peoples of the several States. -Robert W. Welch, Jr.

Maintaining clean, safe water remains one of our greatest national and global challenges and responsibilities. -Jerry Costello

This inevitability of conflict motivates us today and echoes the reminder that freedom is not given away and our national security is not achieved without sacrifice. -Jim Walsh

Family trips to Yellowstone and to what are now national parks in Southern Utah, driving the primitive roads and cars of that day, were real adventures. -Paul D. Boyer

It's also true, however, that having conquered the regional writer ghetto, I am now intent on conquering the nationalist writer ghetto and moving out into the world more. -Rick Moody

As we rise higher in the understanding of ourselves, the national and racial dissonances will be forgotten in the universal rhythms of Truth and Love. -Ruth St. Denis

The opportunities that Gorbachev created for international relations have also been missed, perhaps even lost – here, however, primarily because of the United States. -Stephen Cohen

We believe that the United States and the rest of the international community can play a useful role by exerting influence on Pakistan to put a permanent and visible end to cross-border terrorism against India. -Atal Bihari Vajpayee

The reality is that international institutions like the UN can only be as effective as its members allow it to be. -Atal Bihari Vajpayee

If you are born into a family below the national median income, we provide you with an additional $500, and for every contribution made to a child's account below the national median income, we match it dollar for dollar – the federal government will. -Harold Ford, Jr.

With a strong domestic economy, low national unemployment at 5 percent, and increasing retail sales, the picture should look rosy. But one look at the trade deficit changes all of that. -Jo Ann Emerson

I was the candidate first time a Green or any progressive third party has ever been in a national televised debate. I was in five of them. And the response from the public was overwhelming. -Peter Camejo

There's been quite a clear upswing in nationalist sentiments. Everyone is talking about it, in Turkey as well. -Orhan Pamuk

Well, on the one hand the Turks have the legitimate need to defend their national dignity – and this includes being recognized as a part of the west and Europe. -Orhan Pamuk

It's a national concern, I mean how we dispose of nuclear waste in a safe way, how we deal with this incredible amount of nuclear waste we have created over the years. -Tom Udall

Most African Americans, especially the men and women from my generation, would accept the nationalist gambit that says only European Americans can be racists, which is an interesting gambit. -Anthony Braxton

If most American cities are about the consumption of culture, Los Angeles and New York are about the production of culture – not only national culture but global culture. -Barbara Kruger

I believe that in the end the abolition of war, the maintenance of world peace, the adjustment of international questions by pacific means will come through the force of public opinion, which controls nations and peoples. -Frank B. Kellogg

That is because the conflict with al Qaeda is not governed by the Geneva Conventions, which applies only to international conflicts between states that have signed them. -John Yoo

Everything has to be done to build some sort of international democracy. We've seen only the tiniest beginnings of that. -Susan George

How do we get democracy at the international level? That's our problem. and it's essentially the same problem people faced in the 18th Century when they tried to get democracy nationally. Now we need it internationally. -Susan George

We have the most crude accounting tools. It's tragic because our accounts and our national arithmetic doesn't tell us the things that we need to know. -Susan George

The expansion and sophistication of transnational crime represents one of the most dangerous threats we confront in the next millennium. -Rand Beers

It is quite understandable that Puerto Ricans seek to preserve a cultural sense of identity without separating politically from U.S. national sovereignty. -Dick Thornburgh

If U.S. national sovereignty continues, it is only as a state that Puerto Rico will have permanent 10th Amendment powers over its non-federal affairs, as well as voting power in Congress. -Dick Thornburgh

As the highest ranking American official in the United Nations organization, I came to understand thoroughly that the national constitutional processes of the member states define the status of territories under their sovereignty. -Dick Thornburgh

Yet, Puerto Rico's economic convergence and political integration with the rest of the nation is in a state of arrest – even though the island has been within the national borders, political system and customs territory of the U.S. for a century. -Dick Thornburgh

Veteran performers are dying off, and new acts simply aren't emerging on the national scene. -Brian Setzer

When a show becomes a mega hit internationally, you lose a lot of privacy, you become a hider. It's not a human condition we are exposed to very often. -Steve Kanaly

Community action is as valuable a principle on the international level as it has been domestically. -Barney Frank

Let us not say that we will decide on a political basis at the national level that no State is competent to regulate the practice of medicine in that State if they decide to allow a doctor to prescribe marijuana, because that is what we are talking about. -Barney Frank

On September 11, the murders of World Trade Center employees and visitors took the lives of numerous nationalities, ethnic groups and religious followers. -Cliff Stearns

Let them be reassured, it has never been one of our intentions to ban religion in society, but solely to protect the national education system from any conspicuous display of religious affiliation. -Jean-Pierre Raffarin

We must stress that the euro has been beneficial to the European Union because, otherwise, in this context of international turmoil, every country would have to devalue their currencies. -Jean-Pierre Raffarin

You can't let players do what they wish and be professional. That's a fact. As for the team, Boro had two internationals when I got there in 1995. Now they have more than 15. And they didn't cost the fortune some suggest. -Bryan Robson

Space exploration is important research to our economic and national defense, and America's space program is a symbol of our success as a scientifically and technologically advanced nation. -Randy Forbes

I was through as a manager. I did become involved late in the 1968 campaign at the national scene at the last minute. But I was through as a manager, and I've stayed through, incidentally. -Lew Wasserman

These are international criminals, and the spineless Democrats are doing nothing about it. -Lawrence Ferlinghetti

The agreement to place the binational planning group at our new Northern Command was also signed in December. -Paul Cellucci

We have an incredible national forest service, and we have an incredible child outreach program that the president has put together. I don't see anything wrong with national service for a minimum of two years. If we were to require that, we wouldn't need a draft. -Montel Williams

The overwhelming triumph of the international multimedia conglomerate has resulted in less diversity within the field and has made it much harder for newer writers not only to break in, but to make any kind of a living while doing so. -Alan Dean Foster

I think the Internet's been a tremendous tool in terms of breaking down the power structure of information and entertainment, particularly at a time when so much information and entertainment were in the hands of so few people, with multinationals owning everything. -Dave Foley

Well, I am from India and I wanted to make films in English for the international market in India. So that was really the main thing, and then of course economically it was cheaper to make films in India. -Ismail Merchant

I say that why don't we bring all points of view. Sit around a table and discuss this evidence, and produce evidence as it may be, and let's see what the outcome is, which is why we are having this International panel which we are all talking about. -Thabo Mbeki

I went to national piano competitions and did that whole circuit. Then I played professionally to support myself when I moved out to LA. -Alicia Witt

Nobody understood The Reoccurring Dream, but after September 11, when we were coerced to do a national duty and go out and shop, surely people could begin to see what I was getting at. -Joni Mitchell

Having said that, I believe we must not compound the natural disaster of Katrina by creating a fiscal disaster in Congress – it is our duty to ensure that we reign in other government spending in any event, and especially in this time of national emergency. -Chris Chocola

The government needs to help those in need, but members of Congress shouldn't take advantage of the situation and use a national tragedy as an opportunity to spend taxpayer dollars on their pet projects. -Chris Chocola

Legislation passed in the aftermath of September 11, 2001 enhanced our intelligence capabilities and strengthened our national defense, but until now our nation's immigration policies have not adapted to the needs of a post-September 11th world. -Chris Chocola

The purpose of the ADA was to provide clear and comprehensive national standards to eliminate discrimination against individuals with disabilities. As a result, individuals with disabilities are now able to live in their homes and have access to new careers. -Jim Ramstad

Unless we repeal the illegal Byrd amendment, American exports will be vulnerable to retaliation, and the U.S. will continue to face a difficult task convincing other countries to make their laws comply with international rules. -Jim Ramstad

Our intelligence community needs better coordination of operations and exchange of information, and that's why we need an overall director of national intelligence and a national counterterrorism center. -Jim Ramstad

Let us not suffer from a national amnesia that causes us to forget who and what we are. -Meir Kahane

Let me say at the outset that I do not reflexively oppose international trade. -Richard Neal

Vietnamese must be made to feel that they are racial inferiors with no right to national identity. -Wilfred Burchett

Another example of that was that even during the economic problems of the 1945 government, we managed to carry out other aspects of our policy and other ideals. Through the establishment of national parks, for instance. -Barbara Castle

Those were the ideals that drove us to nationalization of the health service. -Barbara Castle

You see, another reason for nationalization was that private ownership meant fragmentation. -Barbara Castle

It's pretty hard to say no when a vice president-elect and a president-elect ask you to be part of the national team. -Christine Todd Whitman

The case of Iran, a nuclear program that the Iranians admit was 18 years on, that we underestimated. And, in fact, we didn't discover it. It was discovered by a group of Iranian dissidents outside the country who pointed the international community at the location. -David Kay

When you talk to crews that went to Mir or have gone up to International Space Station, they say that you go through different phases of adaptation or getting used to the space environment. -Laurel Clark

Irish is the prominent nationality in the family, but beyond that, I really don't know. I see a lot of artistic or creative influence coming through on my mother's side. -William T. Wiley

The reserve currency role seems to add prestige to an area and some people in Europe have talked about the desirability of the euro becoming an international reserve currency. -Robert C. Solomon

But I think we need the international market. -Zhang Yimou

I think Karl Rove saw that in George W. Bush early on and understood the impact that he could have on Texas politics and probably on national politics. -Ed Gillespie

We thought it would be fun to try to design a show that would work well internationally and so that' s what we're intending to do with Fraggle Rock, and we are indeed now selling it around the world. -Jim Henson

Beloved friends and comrades… the national Libertarian Party is dead. -L. Neil Smith

Arnold Schwarzenegger's gubernatorial campaign raises a series of fascinating questions, the most perplexing of all being why an international star of his stature would ever want to run in the first place. -Michael Medved

International institutions ought to be, as the national ones in democratic countries, established by the peoples and for the peoples. -Henri La Fontaine

I worked in the media from the late 30's through the early 70's. Politics in general became more liberal both nationally and within the state as the years passed. -Jesse Helms

I was the one that brought it in, but not only for the north-east, for every area so we can develop all the regional economies, lift up the national productivity, get greater wealth and share it more evenly. -John Prescott

Philadelphia reflected the national turmoil over race and the Vietnam War, often exploding on my watch. -Andrea Mitchell

Five years from now, 10 years from now, there's going to be a huge Islamic population in the world, they're going to be nationalistic, they're going to be religious, and they're going to be militant. -Chris Matthews

Then the administration tied it in to the regional dispute between Israel and its enemies, as if that's about international terrorism. No, it's not. -Chris Matthews

But baseball bounced back in the next decade to reclaim its place as the national pastime: new heroes, spirited competition, and booming prosperity gave birth to dreams of expansion, both within the major leagues and around the world. -John Thorn

People are ready to say, 'Yes, we are ready for single-payer health insurance.' We are the only industrialized country in the world that does not have national health insurance. We are the richest in wealth and the poorest in health of all the industrial nations. -Studs Terkel

Scientists and scholars should constitute themselves as an international NGO of exceptional authority. -John Polanyi

A new sense of shared international responsibility is unmistakable in the voices of the United Nations and its agencies, and in the civil society of thousands of supra-national NGOs. -John Polanyi

The challenge to our national economies and the collective economy of Europe will become – with the growth of China and the continuing productivity growth of the US – even more intense in the decades to come. -John Hutton

And while national military forces have historically resisted the full participation of women soldiers, female talent has found plenty of scope in revolutionary and terrorist groups around the planet. -Katherine Dunn

I never felt I would get to the stage where I would to have to actively think about retiring from international football as I always thought it would pass me by. -Kenny Cunningham

I never felt I would be part of the international scene for 50 caps in my wildest dreams. -Kenny Cunningham

That's because the International Olympic Committee has a policy of never replacing medals. -Mary Lou Retton

I distinguish, between nationalism and patriotism. -Michael Ignatieff

There's intense national feeling in America that could be called patriotism. -Michael Ignatieff

There are lots of nations in the world or national peoples who don't yet have states. They're inside someone else's state and they want a state of their own. -Michael Ignatieff

There's a civic nationalism in Britain and dozens of other countries. -Michael Ignatieff

All the arts are predominantly national, and therefore the Australian Film Commission should be funding us. The battle gets more and more vicious each year. -Ann Macbeth

Video just accesses international information so much more readily. -Ann Macbeth

The worst thing that you can do in terms of bringing a product up to the market is to be two days after someone else has brought a similar product to the international market-It's dead. -Ann Macbeth

In the First World War, there was the sudden passion of nationalism, and the killing took place because of these emotions. But the Soviet case is different, because you had systematic murder, like the Holocaust. -Ryszard Kapuscinski

People were really interested in what was going on because of the international context of the Cold War. -Ryszard Kapuscinski

The thing that reinforces my belief about that is having worked the last four years with the Safe Kids Campaign on a national basis. I am so amazed at what these little kids do in keeping their parents alerted to what they are there for. -C. Everett Koop

Internationalism, illustrated by the Bolshevik and by the men to whom all countries are alike provided they can make money out of them, is to me repulsive. -Henry Cabot Lodge

When I came back to power, Georgia was completely isolated on the international stage. -Eduard Shevardnadze

If you look internationally over the last 50 years there have been improvements in the third world, but in the last 20 years the reverse has happened, with debt crises and increased poverty. -David Korten

In the US, most progressives start to see the differences between internationalism and economic globalization. -David Korten

I think now, we in the international community are belatedly wanting to show our solidarity with the Somali peoples and also do our best to help them move to better times. -Jan Egeland

Finally, I also come in recognition of the great work that has been undertaken by the NGOs and UN agencies that have been active for many years here, especially through the local staff and international staff here in Somaliland and in Somalia at large. -Jan Egeland

In a world full of competing emergencies and disasters, it really helps if there is an international locomotive that can help us bring attention – help us bring resources. -Jan Egeland

We need better coordination on the international side, just as they need better and more effective efforts on the Somali side. We have too many reconstruction and development assistance plans. -Jan Egeland

I have been working, as emergency relief coordinator, on an international scale, very hard to build a wider alliance of partners in assistance efforts. -Jan Egeland

After the 1954 Geneva international conference, Vietnam was divided into two parts. On paper, North and South Vietnam were twin countries born at the same moment. -Nguyen Cao Ky

Through leadership of the fight against French colonialism, Ho Chi Minh had made a name for himself in the international political arena. -Nguyen Cao Ky

We have now recently launched the national integrity plan. -Abdullah Ahmad Badawi

We have also set up the national institute for ethics. This institute and also the implementation of the national integrity plan, that will certainly do the follow up that is necessary for this. -Abdullah Ahmad Badawi

We have followed a path of moderation, development is our priority, national unity, good community relations, Muslims and non Muslims, this is what has given us the advantage. -Abdullah Ahmad Badawi

The regime of globalization promotes an unfettered marketplace as the dynamic instrument organizing international relations. -William Greider

There is a fuzzy but real distinction that can and I believe should be made, between patriotism, which is attachment to a way of life, and nationalism, which is the insistence that your way of life deserves to rule over other ways of life. -Todd Gitlin

American movies and music deliver themes of freedom, innocence, and power that appeal to others – partly because America itself was put together out of a multiplicity of national traditions. -Todd Gitlin

One of the strongest and most persistent elements in national development has been that inheritance of political traditions and usages which the new settlers brought with them. -Albert Bushnell Hart

People just want to hear some common sense… and I bring to bear the experience in local government and state government and national government – I was the first woman in history on the Senate Finance Committee – not to mention the diplomatic international experience. -Carol Moseley Braun

Just like families must live within their budgets, the Federal Government must live within its means. We have passed appropriations bills that have been fiscally responsible while recognizing our national priorities. -Dennis Hastert

With more than 67 percent of the Nation's freight moving on highways, economists believe that our ability to compete internationally is tied to the quality of our infrastructure. -Dennis Hastert

What makes America great is that we can come together during times of national tragedy. -Dennis Hastert

I am a great admirer of Sen. Frist, who is a nationally known heart surgeon and well known in Nashville as a great family man who has dedicated his life to helping others and, in that regard, he has followed in his father's footsteps. -John Jay Hooker

I believe I'm going to die doing the things I was born to do. I believe I'm going to die high off the people. I believe I'm going to die a revolutionary in the international revolutionary proletarian struggle. -Fred Hampton

People now realize that globalization is not only for the multi-nationals and the circulation of money. -Lakhdar Brahimi

However, it does seem now that the international community, more importantly the powers that have influence, and, even more importantly, Afghanistan's neighbors realize that it is high time that they work together, and not against one another. -Lakhdar Brahimi

The third point is that for some time the UN has been talking about helping Afghanistan in the reconstruction of the country but there has never been any real commitment by the international community to provide resources for that. -Lakhdar Brahimi

So, the international community are all the countries that are important: the United States definitely everywhere; the European Union because it is very important, and also, they do show a great deal of international responsibility; and then the local players. -Lakhdar Brahimi

In Rwanda that genocide happened because the international community and the Security Council refused to give, again, another 5000 troops which would have cost, I don't know, maybe fifty, a hundred, million dollars. -Lakhdar Brahimi

But you are absolutely right that when the international community decides to help in a meaningful manner a country like Afghanistan, then coordination between the various actors that are involved in these processes is very, very difficult indeed. -Lakhdar Brahimi

Christianity has not conquered nationalism; the opposite has been the case nationalism has made Christianity its footstool. -Arthur Keith

We shall never understand the ethical system taught by Jesus unless we realize that he was a Jew, not only by birth, but that he lived and taught as a Jew; the Sermon on the Mount was addressed to his distracted fellow nationals. -Arthur Keith

The first profile piece on myself came about after my Rabbi sent information to the Jewish Chronicle on what I was up to. The story was then picked up by one of the nationals and things grew from there. -Benjamin Cohen

The previous year it had taken England all their time to beat the full German team in an international and I had taken with me the programme from that match. -Dixie Dean

We have a certain group of people in this country that seem to want to lock up our national treasures, our national parks, and cherished places and keep the public from enjoying them. -Don Sherwood

Laura Bush is the same way. I mean, they both, um, understand, they understand the challenges of the moment and understand the responsibilities, he understands the responsibilities he has to protect the national security of America as well as the economic security of America. -Donald Evans

I had some vague memory of visiting Canberra as a lad, when we came up with my father by car. But when I made the long train journey from Sydney to Canberra and arrived at the little stop, I did wonder slightly whether this really was the national capital. -John Henry Carver

The SSRC committee turned attention from team research for building a model of the United States to doing one for world trade in order to investigate the international transmission mechanism. -Lawrence R. Klein

Spending on programs such as national defense and funding the operating budgets of all federal agencies represent only 39 percent of our yearly budget, an all-time low. -Paul Gillmor

While there are many influences on gas prices in America, I believe the passage of a national energy bill will help relieve this burden on our country. -Paul Gillmor

I come to urge my party to be open to debate and discussion; to move away from a lock-step litmus test which advocates abortion on demand in an effort to reach a broader national consensus. -Robert Casey

The national Democratic Party has embraced abortion on demand. I believe this position is wrong in principle and out of the mainstream of our party's historic commitment to protecting the powerless. -Robert Casey

We must make children and families a national priority. -Robert Casey

As I discovered, even the governor of a major state who holds pro-life views can be denied a hearing at his party's convention without the national media protesting it. -Robert Casey

Amnesty International continues to report that extra judicial tortures and murders continue. This is not democracy that we are exporting to Mexico, and this is certainly not what the Mexican workers signed up for. -Stephen F. Lynch

But now I wish I could back to Stockholm to make international films there. -Lasse Hallstrom

Cinema has become a global economy, totally international. -Lasse Hallstrom

Under Hitler it was the entrepreneurial and professional classes who were the first victims of Nazi boycotts and exclusion. Today it is Israel, the most powerful symbol of Jewish national resurgence in two millennia. -Jack Schwartz

Jewish and Palestinian nationalism are virtually contemporaneous, and grew out of the disruptions that created new national movements from the ruins of the old empires / i. -Jack Schwartz

Palestinian ideology has become a lethal cocktail of radical nationalism and Islamic fundamentalism. -Jack Schwartz

A lot of the money in the stock market is really our national retirement plan, for better or worse. -Ron Chernow

Early on, New York already had a national and even international identity. -Ron Chernow

The national security state has many unfair and cruel weapons in its arsenal, but that of junk science is one which can be fought and perhaps defeated. -Aldrich Ames

When I handed over the names and compromised so many CIA agents in the Soviet Union, I had come to the conclusion that the loss of these sources to the U.S. would not compromise significant national defense, political, diplomatic interests. -Aldrich Ames

I have had national security background, 10 years on the Intelligence Committee, the last two years as chair. -Bob Graham

In my judgment, the greatest risks are international terrorist groups like al Qaeda and Hezbollah. The war in Iraq has taken our attention off those priorities. -Bob Graham

I write box notes for Kino International, which specializes in distributing foreign films. -Bruce Bennett

Louis Freeh said on national TV that actionable intelligence could have allowed us to stop the hijackings. -Curt Weldon

Once serious political dialogue has begun, the international community can assume that we have achieved genuine progress along the road to real democratisation. -Aung San Suu Kyi

Whatever help we may want from the international community now or in the future, we want to make sure that this help is tailored to help our people to help themselves. -Aung San Suu Kyi

I watch a lot of professional skating, and I am really looking forward to going to nationals. -Debi Thomas

Probably the '86 nationals. That was my first real national title and first real statement I ever made in figure skating, and my life changed after I returned. -Debi Thomas

During practically all of my public life, I have been a sincere advocate of an agreement between the leading nations of the world to set up all the necessary international machinery that would bring about a practical abolition of war between civilized nations. -George William Norris

First, we could have defied both of them and could have gone to war against both of these nations for this violation of international law and interference with our neutral rights. -George William Norris

We are seeing healing among the stolen generations, and initiatives which are enabling Indigenous people to make their distinctive contribution to our national life. -Malcolm Fraser

I believe that successfully addressing our national security needs while protecting our basic freedoms and civil liberties requires continual Congressional oversight, and I will continue to work to assert the role of this body in carrying out this grave responsibility. -Patrick J. Kennedy

My state has the highest child poverty rate in all of New England, above the national average. -Patrick J. Kennedy

Anywhere you have extreme poverty and no national health insurance, no promise of health care regardless of social standing, that's where you see the sharp limitations of market-based health care. -Paul Farmer

I recommend the same therapies for all humans with HIV. There is no reason to believe that physiologic responses to therapy will vary across lines of class, culture, race or nationality. -Paul Farmer

In fact, it seems to me that making strategic alliances across national borders in order to treat HIV among the world's poor is one of the last great hopes of solidarity across a widening divide. -Paul Farmer

Property in man, always morally unjust, has become nationally dangerous. -Robert Dale Owen

As the 1960s began, a new breed of Hollywood leading lady was emerging. She was elegant, international, and wonderfully comedic. -Maureen O'Hara

The denominational world tries to pressure its members to focus on the birth of Christ, but in doing so layers of guilt are imposed, and competition gets complicated as one Christmas program tries to outdo the other. -John Clayton

There was no instruction to be thankful that the Christians were special people, chosen people. There was no nationalistic, political or ethnic superiority to be thankful for. -John Clayton

Our country's national crime is lynching. It is not the creature of an hour, the sudden outburst of uncontrolled fury, or the unspeakable brutality of an insane mob. -Ida B. Wells

There was one issue on which there seemed to be almost unanimity: the Internet should not be managed by any government, national or multinational. -Jon Postel

I didn't spend a lot of time on national security the American people will be glad to know. -Paul Begala

Again, President Reagan was sort of an amiable presence out at the ranch by the last 6 months of his presidency. He had no effect on national policy at all. -Paul Begala

Our talks in Paris tackled economic, democratic, security and political issues; we talked on means for combating terrorism, in addition to latest regional and international developments of mutual interest, especially those in region. -Ali Abdullah Saleh

The situation in the region is flammable and may explode at any moment, because of the crucial events and because of the absence of justice in executing the international legitimacy resolutions, regarding the Israeli Arab cause and the oppression on Palestinians by Israelis. -Ali Abdullah Saleh

That can be achieved by termination of Israeli occupation to the territories according to the international resolutions related, so the Palestinian State can be establish with Jerusalem as capital for such State. -Ali Abdullah Saleh

United States is a great Country and has its effective role on the international arena, so we have to boost our relations with it, in order to achieve peace and stability in our region and the world. -Ali Abdullah Saleh

Democracy in Yemen did not stop, instead it is in a continuous development, there is no other way to follow rather than democracy, it is our national way for building up our country, it was not imposed on us by others. -Ali Abdullah Saleh

The international proletariat first appeared on the scene in the early Thirties of the nineteenth century, and its first great action was the French Revolution of 1848. -C. L. R. James

I had a national and international reputation. I had written the history and articles. So I brought to the Trotskyist movement some international reputation. -C. L. R. James

New legislation has just been adopted by the International Labour Organization on the Worst Forms of Child Labor, such as bonded labour, prostitution and hazardous work. -Carol Bellamy

The mean pattern of educational and economic achievement within multi-racial countries such as Canada and the United States has increasingly been found to prove valid internationally. -J. Philippe Rushton

The World Cup is a truly International event. -John Motson

It is remarkable that jealousy of individual property in land often goes along with very exaggerated doctrines of tribal or national property in land. -William Graham Sumner

Probably the most useful thing I can do as secretary of state is to assist the president in adapting and renewing the transnational institutions that were created after World War II. -Warren Christopher

But The Same Sea is set precisely in this Israel, which never makes it to the news headlines anywhere. It is a novel about everyday people far removed from fundamentalism, fanaticism nationalism, or militancy of any sort. -Amos Oz

Israel of the coastal plain, where eight out of ten Israeli Jews live far removed from the occupied territories, from the fiery Jerusalem, from the religious and nationalistic conflicts, is unknown to the outside world, almost unknown to itself. -Amos Oz

The one I was driving for at the time, Nissan, they pulled out after they won the championship, because it was costing millions of pounds to do a national championship and ok, that might be ok when you're doing an international championship, but not for a national one. -David Leslie

Second, the facility at Guantanamo Bay is necessary to national security. -Jeff Miller

Turning the Internet over to the U.N. or some other phony international organization would be a disaster, and I am not willing to stand by and let it happen. -John Doolittle

But honestly, it's pretty weird; there are girls who'd do absolutely everything just to get a backstage pass. I don't know what it is, but really, when you're on national TV in America the girls love you. They all want you! And I'm not complaining! -Kid Rock

I have worked in a very close and cordial way with Norwegian representatives at many international meetings, and the pleasure I felt at those associations was equaled only by the profit I always secured from them. -Lester B. Pearson

It would be especially tragic if the people who most cherish ideals of peace, who are most anxious for political cooperation on a wider than national scale, made the mistake of underestimating the pace of economic change in our modern world. -Lester B. Pearson

Today continuing poverty and distress are a deeper and more important cause of international tensions, of the conditions that can produce war, than previously. -Lester B. Pearson

Well they do have a use, but we should never believe that any international conference is going to suddenly solve problems like the condition of the global environment. -Maurice Strong

It's only in relatively recent years that Hollywood became the playground of multinational corporations which regard movies and TV shows as a minor irritant to their overall activity. -Peter Bart

I'm not against vodka – they just asked us. They put out some story about us entertaining international celebrities with vodka, which of course wasn't true. -Robin Day

I am a nationalist… my native soil is the theatre. -Cyril Cusack

Theatre has no national identity. It is something for the world, whether it is Irish, English, or French. -Cyril Cusack

I'm criticized by the feminists, by the Jewish establishment, by Canadian nationalists. And why not? I've had my pot shots at them. I'm fair game. -Mordecai Richler

Believe me, as one who has seen a number of international crises firsthand, they cannot be handled without an understanding of history. -Pierre Salinger

In this decisive hour of our national history, union means life and division means death. -Bao Dai

I think we have a number of young people – like yourself – who want to make a difference. I'm not sure the numbers are as large because I think the burden of getting elected to public office at the national level has become astronomically expensive. -Birch Bayh

When I was younger it was twice a day with a game on the weekend. Then when I got older, three times a day everyday in college and on the national team. -Brandi Chastain

The predominant yardstick of your government is not human rights but national interests. -Breyten Breytenbach

I believe we can do more in making the President's vision for space exploration a reality by awarding cash prizes to encourage greater participation of the private sector in the national space program. -Dana Rohrabacher

Transferring our sovereignty and decisionmaking power to the WTO, to the United Nations, or any other international body is not in the long-term interests of our people. -Dana Rohrabacher

A standard international language should not only be simple, regular, and logical, but also rich and creative. -Edward Sapir

As a matter of fact, a national language which spreads beyond its own confines very quickly loses much of its original richness of content and is in no better case than a constructed language. -Edward Sapir

It would, of course, be hopeless to attempt to crowd into an international language all those local overtones of meaning which are so dear to the heart of the nationalist. -Edward Sapir

The spirit of logical analysis should in practice blend with the practical pressure for the adoption of some form of international language, but it should not allow itself to be stampeded by it. -Edward Sapir

Each one of us, and, indeed, all those who aspire to national leadership must bring their own visions, views and styles to the business of reforming Nigeria, and the search for solutions. -Ibrahim Babangida

Most importantly, nothing has happened to change my conviction that freedom and the love of liberty remain the essential defining attributes of our national character as a people. -Ibrahim Babangida

With each new book, the march of our national history takes a step forward. When one is present at a book launch, one is bearing witness to the birth of a new body of ideas, to the coming into being of another testimony of history. -Ibrahim Babangida

Therefore one should speak at the same time of national citizenship and wider European citizenship. -Jacques Delors

I think also of my colleagues in elementary particle theory in many lands, and feel that in some measure I am here as a representative of our small, informal, international fraternity. -Murray Gell-Mann

ON the decline of the Roman power, about five centuries after Christ, the countries of Northern Europe were left almost destitute of a national government. -Thomas Bulfinch

Every color I can think of and nationality, we were all touched by Dr. King because he made us like each other and respect each other. -Lena Horne

So I had the opportunity to do what the kids in the Hershey program do, except that the Hershey program lets them do it on such a larger scale, with the regional and national competitions. -Rafer Johnson

The security of which we speak is to be attained by the development of international law through an international organization based on the principles of law and justice. -Ludwig Quidde

The present level of armaments could be taken as the starting point. It could be stipulated in an international treaty that these armaments should be simultaneously and uniformly reduced by a certain proportion in all countries. -Ludwig Quidde

Let us assume that the ideal were reached; let us imagine a state of international life in which the danger of war no longer exists. Then no one would dare to demand a penny for obviously completely superfluous armaments. -Ludwig Quidde

I am convinced that when the history of international law comes to be written centuries hence, it will be divided into two periods: the first being from the earliest times to the end of the nineteenth century, and the second beginning with the Hague Conference. -Ludwig Quidde

Every success in limiting armaments is a sign that the will to achieve mutual understanding exists, and every such success thus supports the fight for international law and order. -Ludwig Quidde

OK, well maybe I have to get back to Judaism. In the sense that if I look at me and my forebears forever stretching back to I don't know, whenever there's no sense of place and therefore no sense of nationality. -Janet Suzman

Jews have had to carry around their own sense of self in a carpet bag and I think perhaps too much emphasis might be being put on nationality and on the other hand patriotism, that sort of thing. -Janet Suzman

Then this will only prove again and again, that Monarchy in Germany is he longer capable of a national act. -Ferdinand Lassalle

The question of the value of nationality in art is perhaps unsolvable. -Edward Hopper

A common allegiance to form of expression that is identified with no single national unit is likely to prove one of the most potent symbols of the freedom of the human spirit that the world has yet known. -Edward Sapir

A common creation demands a common sacrifice, and perhaps not the least potent argument in favour of a constructed international language is the fact that it is equally foreign, or apparently so, to the traditions of all nationalities. -Edward Sapir

Both French and Latin are involved with nationalistic and religious implications which could not be entirely shaken off, and so, while they seemed for a long time to have solved the international language problem up to a certain point, they did not really do so in spirit. -Edward Sapir

English, once accepted as an international language, is no more secure than French has proved to be as the one and only accepted language of diplomacy or as Latin has proved to be as the international language of science. -Edward Sapir

No important national language, at least in the Occidental world, has complete regularity of grammatical structure, nor is there a single logical category which is adequately and consistently handled in terms of linguistic symbolism. -Edward Sapir

So far as the advocates of a constructed international language are concerned, it is rather to be wondered at how much in common their proposals actually have, both in vocabulary and in general spirit of procedure. -Edward Sapir

The attitude of independence toward a constructed language which all national speakers must adopt is really a great advantage, because it tends to make man see himself as the master of language instead of its obedient servant. -Edward Sapir

The supposed inferiority of a constructed language to a national one on the score of richness of connotation is, of course, no criticism of the idea of a constructed language. -Edward Sapir

These examples of the lack of simplicity in English and French, all appearances to the contrary, could be multiplied almost without limit and apply to all national languages. -Edward Sapir

Jews are the intensive form of any nationality whose language and customs they adopt. -Emma Lazarus

During these two and a half years that have followed the war, the most urgent problem we have encountered was: to activate the public enterprises, to bring them up to the level that international markets demand and we are just now getting them prepared for privatization. -Ibrahim Rugova

This republic represents the greatest basis for that universal socialist order, the creation of which is at the present time the historic task of the International Proletariat. -Karl Liebknecht

To the socialist no nation is free whose national existence is based upon the enslavement of another people, for to him colonial peoples, too, are peoples, and, as such, parts of the national state. -Karl Liebknecht

The national will is the supreme law of the Republic, and on all subjects within the limits of his constitutional powers should be faithfully obeyed by the public servant. -Martin Van Buren

I confess that for fifteen years my efforts in education, and my hopes of success in establishing a system of national education, have always been associated with the idea of coupling the education of this country with the religious communities which exist. -Richard Cobden

The reason why I have lost weight is that I looked at the international schedule and thought that I wanted to play for another two years. It is a very hectic schedule and if I want to get through that then I have to be in the best shape that I can. -Shane Warne

Must we be put to shame by much smaller and poorer countries, by Ireland, France, Austria or Sweden, who have understood that a nation's support of its arts is a matter of both national pride and cultural survival? -Theodore Bikel

Instead of the international police action we had hoped for during the war in Kosovo, there are wars again – conducted with state-of-the-art technology, but still in the old style. -Jurgen Habermas

Disappointment over nationalistic authoritarian regimes may have contributed to the fact that today religion offers a new and subjectively more convincing language for old political orientations. -Jurgen Habermas

After September 11, the European governments have completely failed. They are incapable of seeing beyond their own national scope of interests. -Jurgen Habermas

Here we encounter two conflicting concepts with which we must come to grips in our time: the idea of national solidarity and the idea of international cooperation. -Gustav Stresemann

The great men of a nation reach out to all mankind. They are unifying, not divisive; internationally conciliating and still great nationally. -Gustav Stresemann

To contrast national solidarity and international cooperation as two opposites seems foolish to me. -Gustav Stresemann

Before the war there were many who were more or less ignorant of the international labor movement but who nevertheless turned to it for salvation when the threat of war arose. They hoped that the workers would never permit a war. -Hjalmar Branting

We here in the North have for many years had a natural tendency to feel that when our representatives come together at an international meeting, we embark on the quest of mutual understanding and support. -Hjalmar Branting

And literature frequently rises to heights that make it international. -Irving Langmuir

Medicine also disregards national boundaries. -Irving Langmuir

This coupling together of science with international peace, is, I think, particularly significant. -Irving Langmuir

To my mind, the most important aspect of the Nobel Awards is that they bring home to the masses of the peoples of all nations, a realization of their common interests. They carry to those who have no direct contact with science the international spirit. -Irving Langmuir

For the only way in which a durable peace can be created is by world-wide restoration of economic activity and international trade. -James Forrestal

The biggest stories in 2005 were the national disasters. -Geraldo Rivera

In a case like Iraq the UN has again shown what important role it plays as the guarantor for protecting international peace and stability in the global political structure. -Anna Lindh

Nonetheless, the developing countries must be able to reap the benefits of international trade. -Anna Lindh

One of the gaps in our international development efforts is the provision of global public goods – that is, goods or conditions we need that no individual or country can secure on their own, such as halting global warming, financial stability and peace and security. -Anna Lindh

The conflict in the Middle East needs to be solved for the same reasons. It is necessary to reach a two-states solution, built on international law, for sustainable peace and development, and it can only be achieved through joint efforts by the international community. -Anna Lindh

The United Nations remains our most important global actor. These days we are continuously reminded of the enormous responsibility of the Security Council to uphold international peace and stability. -Anna Lindh

We must focus much more on developing countries' own policies and priorities, and increase policy and operational coherence between national, regional and multilateral actors. -Anna Lindh

We need the UN, to deal with the threats to our common security from nuclear, chemical and biological weapons, not only in the case of Iraq. They must be tackled by the international community together, by strengthening conventions, treaties and agreements. -Anna Lindh

Our communications services revenue growth is being driven by continued strong top-line performance in data, Internet and international – three of the fastest growing and most profitable areas within communications services. -Bernard Ebbers

Our investments in data, Internet and international have been particularly timely and have positioned the company to post industry-leading incremental revenue gains. -Bernard Ebbers

We accelerated our capital spending in the fourth quarter, particularly in international and next-generation network deployment, which should not only sustain future revenue growth but also drive significant cost reductions across all communications services. -Bernard Ebbers

The International Brigades and the British volunteers were, numerically, only a small part of the Republican forces, but nearly all had accepted the need for organization and order in civilian life. -Bill Alexander

The International Brigades provided a shock force while the Republic trained and organized an army from an assemblage of individuals. The Spanish people knew they were not fighting alone. -Bill Alexander

It's not a very popular subject amongst my audience, who are by nature more internationalist, but I don't choose what to write about, I don't choose my subjects, they kind of choose me. -Billy Bragg

In the past I have defended the right of the IRA to engage in armed struggle. I did so because there was no alternative for those who would not bend the knee, or turn a blind eye to oppression, or for those who wanted a national republic. -Gerry Adams

The way forward is by building political support for republican and democratic objectives across Ireland and by winning support for these goals internationally. -Gerry Adams

We have been helping, trying to help Afghanistan in many ways, even from the beginning of… the beginnings of the '20s, 1920s, when he we were fighting our own national struggle. -Bulent Ecevit

The president overstepped his authority when he asked the NSA to eavesdrop on Americans' international phone calls without obtaining a warrant. -Sherrod Brown

But that in and of itself this past year was not a factor in what I did for the national team every time I stepped out there, or in training, or when I stepped out there in the WUSA. -Tiffeny Milbrett

Penn State University is also nationally recognized for the exceptional research and patient care provided at the College of Medicine, located in my Congressional District in Hershey, PA. -Tim Holden

Opera is given so little attention in the national press. -Carlisle Floyd

We don't have access to a national forum that we had in those days, through the news magazines which were the television news of the time. It's very disturbing to me that we've sort of been pushed to the corners. -Carlisle Floyd

The nation will benefit in the long term if it continues to be open to foreign expertise. This will help the country to establish its business culture and environment faster, based on international best practice. -Hassanal Bolkiah

There is no conflict between favouring Islamic and traditional values and being more open and international. -Hassanal Bolkiah

We will host the Asean summit in November this year. It will be an occasion to reflect on our achievements collectively and to look at how Asean can maintain its leading role in regional and international cooperation. -Hassanal Bolkiah

As I have tried to show, science, in producing the airplane and the wireless, has created a new international political environment to which governments must adjust their foreign policies. -John Boyd Orr

I'm not saying I didn't have ample time to recover, ample time to get to my best, I felt this year I did fine. When I stepped on the field for the national team, I was ready and able to make an impact, to score goals, to create chances. -Tiffeny Milbrett

A variety of national and international studies indicate that the broad-based deployment of information technology can have a substantial impact on our nation's economic productivity and growth as well as the educational and social success of our citizens. -Tim Holden

I would like Israel to be a Jewish state, and therefore not to annex over 2 million Palestinians who live in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip to Israel, which will make Israel a bi-national state. -Yitzhak Rabin

Only the change on the international scene, the crisis in the gulf, and the strong, firm position of the United States against aggression between two Arab countries created realities that led to the Madrid Peace Conference. -Yitzhak Rabin

Claims of right and insistence upon obligations may depend upon treaty stipulations, or upon the rules of international law, or upon the sense of natural justice applied to the circumstances of a particular case, or upon disputed facts. -Elihu Root

The attractive idea that we can now have a parliament of man with authority to control the conduct of nations by legislation or an international police force with power to enforce national conformity to rules of right conduct is a counsel of perfection. -Elihu Root

There are those who believe we have need of more literature, of a large international publishing house, of a great peace newspaper, or the like. I am rather skeptical about this idea. -Fredrik Bajer

Today's date, the eighteenth of May, should sometime become an occasion of great international celebration, for on this day ten years ago the first Peace Conference opened at The Hague. -Fredrik Bajer

At Leeds the idea of an international labour organization appeared in a trade-union text which also drew attention to the danger to the working classes inherent in the existence of international capitalist competition. -Leon Jouhaux

Expressing the thoughts of my comrades, I suggested, among other means, the organization of an international information service on inventories, on production, and on the needs of the various countries for raw materials. -Leon Jouhaux

Furthermore, it is not distorting history to say that it was largely through the efforts and propaganda of our International Federation that the government of the U.S.S.R. was recognized by the majority of the great powers. -Leon Jouhaux

The trade unions, far from being content with these declarations, established international liaisons and supported every policy based on pacification and understanding. -Leon Jouhaux

The working classes were becoming more and more sharply aware of the complex causes of international malaise. -Leon Jouhaux

The candidates before you know that the IFP has set up a system of deployed IFP national and provincial leaders who are not only monitoring the performance of candidates during these elections but will also do so after these elections. -Mangosuthu Buthelezi

Before we move forward with new efforts to lower the barriers to international free trade, we must review the consequences of the policies of the past and address the problems of the present. -Bob Ney

As a conservative power, the United States has a vital interest in upholding and expanding the reign of law in international relations. -J. William Fulbright

On this Veterans Day, let us remember the service of our veterans, and let us renew our national promise to fulfill our sacred obligations to our veterans and their families who have sacrificed so much so that we can live free. -Dan Lipinski

Hydrogen holds great promise to meet many of our future energy needs, and it addresses national security and our environmental concerns. Hydrogen is the simplest, most abundant element in the universe. -Dan Lipinski

In 1988, King Hussein of Jordan said that it doesn't take any connection any more to those territories, and he would like to split from those territories. So according to the international law, it doesn't belong to anyone. -Silvan Shalom

Most of the international community, most of the countries around the world, don't want any side, any party to take unilateral steps. They would like that all of us to stick to the road map. -Silvan Shalom

So, we went from being an Athens band to being a Georgia band to being a Southern band to being an American band from the East Coast to being an American band and now we're kind of an international phenomenon. -Michael Stipe

TV that people will never see, that giant international corporations will never touch, will never pay your salary. -Norman Lear

At great, great remove sit the head of General Electric, the head of News Corp, the head of Viacom, or the head of this giant international corporation that wants these ratings. -Norman Lear

Could a government dare to set out with happiness as its goal? Now that there are accepted scientific proofs, it would be easy to audit the progress of national happiness annually, just as we monitor money and GDP. -Polly Toynbee

Last year, customs officials screened only five percent of the 11 million cargo containers entering the United States. That rate is both unacceptable and dangerous to our national and economic interests. -Allyson Schwartz

I represent the Port of Philadelphia, and I know firsthand the important role that ports play in the national and global economy. I have also seen how simple accidents can have devastating impacts on the port system. -Allyson Schwartz

Iran's continued pursuit of nuclear weapons, support for international terrorist organizations, and abhorrent human rights practices pose one of the greatest threats to global security. -Allyson Schwartz

The serious crimes by the Sudanese government and the government-supported militias must be met with serious consequences. We must work for tough international economic sanctions on the Sudanese government. -Allyson Schwartz

Image is an international language. -Marjane Satrapi

The increased global linkages promote economic growth in the world through two key mechanisms: the division of labor and the international spillovers of knowledge. -Toshihiko Fukui

The higher American patriotism, on the other hand, combines loyalty to historical tradition and precedent with the imaginative projection of an ideal national Promise. -Herbert Croly

When the Promise of American life is conceived as a national ideal, whose fulfillment is a matter of artful and laborious work, the effect thereof is substantially to identify the national purpose with the social problem. -Herbert Croly

The Constitution was the expression not only of a political faith, but also of political fears. It was wrought both as the organ of the national interest and as the bulwark of certain individual and local rights. -Herbert Croly

Our country was thereby saved from the consequences of its distracting individualistic conception of democracy, and its merely legal conception of nationality. It was because the followers of Jackson and Douglas did fight for it, that the Union was preserved. -Herbert Croly

Today's global landscape is increasingly interconnected. China and the Middle East play critical roles towards international peace and security. -Rick Larsen

The Patriot Act removed major legal barriers that prevented the law enforcement, intelligence, and national defense communities from talking and coordinating their work to protect the American people and our national security. -Jon Porter

Recognizing Quebec as being different, recognizing our history, recognizing our identity, has never meant a weakening of Quebec and has never been a threat to national unity. -Jean Charest

A pacifist will often – at least nowadays – be an internationalist and vice versa. But history shows us that a pacifist need not think internationally. -Christian Lous Lange

Internationalism is a social and political theory, a certain concept of how human society ought to be organized, and in particular a concept of how the nations ought to organize their mutual relations. -Christian Lous Lange

On the contrary. Internationalism also recognizes, by its very name, that nations do exist. It simply limits their scope more than one-sided nationalism does. -Christian Lous Lange

Like all social theories, internationalism must seek its basis in the economic and technical fields; here are to be found the most profound and the most decisive factors in the development of society. -Christian Lous Lange

Only recently, during the nineteenth century, and then only in Europe, do we meet forms of the state which have been created by a deliberate national feeling. -Christian Lous Lange

In particular, the efforts to reestablish peace after the World War have been directed toward the formation of states and the regulation of their frontiers according to a consciously national program. -Christian Lous Lange

The main concept is that of an international solidarity expressed in practice through worldwide division of labor: free trade is the principal point in the program of internationalism. -Christian Lous Lange

Hand in hand with nationalist economic isolationism, militarism struggles to maintain the sovereign state against the forward march of internationalism. -Christian Lous Lange

I believe that the American administration of Iraq has been arrogant, has pursued policies that are illegal in international law and has been ignorant and incompetent. I said this very forthrightly to the senators. -Juan Cole

I also argued before the war that the administration was underestimating Arab nationalism and Iraqi nationalism, that it was not going to be as easy to rule Iraq as they thought. -Juan Cole

Second, the resolution contains the blatantly false assertion that negotiating a timeline for bringing U.S. troops home with the Iraqi government undermines U.S. national security. Such a statement shows a misunderstanding of the enemy we face in Iraq. -Peter DeFazio

But the same thing was true in the army. You slept in a barracks with all kinds of people of every nationality, every trade, every character and quality you can imagine, and that was a good experience. -Shelby Foote

And not only that but… when the station is completed, there will be an international crew made of astronauts coming from different cultural experiences, speaking different languages, but working together for a common goal. -Umberto Guidoni

Meth production and use is a serious problem in Kentucky and across the country. Clearly, there is a growing need for a national strategy to combat this crisis. Increasing public awareness is a significant means for prevention. -Ron Lewis

Our institute's agenda is relatively simple. We study the relationship between social-economic change and culture. By culture we mean beliefs, values and lifestyles. We cover a broad range of issues, and we work very internationally. -Peter L. Berger

The matter of international relations is very subtle and exquisite. -Vladimir Zhirinovsky

The national team comes before everything. -Lorrie Fair

The player can only compete with the best internationally when they've committed themselves to this goal. They have to be properly supported until that point. -Jurgen Klinsmann

To do it nationally or internationally, you have to follow a few more rules. -Kristin Hersh

The American Indian was an individualist in religion as in war. He had neither a national army nor an organized church. -Charles Eastman

My point here is I think international pressures of our acting unilaterally again are going to be such that the administration will say, well, we just can't take this on now. -Lawrence Eagleburger

This resolution simply says Israel has the right to defend itself. This includes conducting operations both inside its borders and in the territory of nations that threaten it, which is in accordance with international law. -John Boehner

Despite the previous efforts of Congresses, our addiction to foreign oil, as the President stated, is greater today than ever before. That dependency is a threat to our national security, and we must address that threat. -Jim Costa

My home State of North Carolina ranks 12th in the United States for increased aging population and, according to a national report, 41st in overall health. According to this same report, individuals aged 50+ are the least healthy. -Howard Coble

It's basic due diligence to make sure that whenever a foreign entity acquires a controlling interest in a U.S. company that national security isn't threatened. -Dave Reichert

I think Juan stopped short – he got halfway to the destination and got off the train. He is certainly an excellent writer and a good person, but I'm not a nationalist. -Clarence Thomas

I also never went there when I was little because I was too busy working and traveling on national tours. -Christy Romano

But first I want to get my master's degree at Columbia's School of International Public Affairs. -Christy Romano

First, we must stop issuing drivers' licenses to people in our country illegally. Providing them with forms of government identification makes a mockery of our laws and undermines national security efforts. -Bobby Jindal

We should be therefore supporting a larger Europe, and in so doing we should strive to expand the zone of peace and prosperity in the world which is the necessary foundation for a stable international system in which our leadership could be fruitfully exercised. -Zbigniew Brzezinski

To increase the zone of peace is to build the inner core of a stable international zone. -Zbigniew Brzezinski

I cite these events because I think they underline two very disturbing phenomena – the loss of U.S. international credibility, the growing U.S. international isolation. -Zbigniew Brzezinski

Hitler bombed London into submission but in fact it created a sense of national solidarity. -Tom Paulin

And yet, if we don't, first and foremost, act responsibly with the national tax dollars that we have, we can't properly address those regional priorities that we would like to. -Melissa Bean

In the literature of France Moliere occupies the same kind of position as Cervantes in that of Spain, Dante in that of Italy, and Shakespeare in that of England. His glory is more than national – it is universal. -Lytton Strachey

There's probably about 150 charters in the world. We're the biggest international club there is. -Chuck Zito

I think the government has to reposition environment on top of their national and international priorities. -Brian Mulroney

That was the first major social sciences conference at which social scientists from all cultures wanted to reach a consensus on whether we can continue to pursue a national course in the social sciences or whether we need a cosmopolitan path that also connects us in a new way. -Ulrich Beck

Relinquishing apparent national sovereignty does not have to entail a loss of national sovereignty, but can actually be a benefit. -Ulrich Beck

I think the international appeal of SF is quite understandable since the kinds of people who like to read it, are, by the nature of the beast, interested in other cultures, of which other nations on Earth are the closest available example. -Stanley Schmidt

To honor our national promise to our veterans, we must continue to improve services for our men and women in uniform today and provide long overdue benefits for the veterans and military retirees who have already served. -Solomon Ortiz

I worked with the March of Dimes to enact legislation for a national birth defects prevention program to provide surveillance, research and preventive services aimed at reducing the rate of birth defects. -Solomon Ortiz

From protecting our natural resources to providing maritime security and national defense, the Coast Guard's duties are broad in scope, and the performance of those duties has never been more important. -Russ Carnahan

And new people come in, and it doesn't go along with their politics, and they fire me, end the column, silence a voice in Los Angeles. They can't silence it nationally, but they are able to do it there. -Robert Scheer

The American flag is the symbol of our freedom, national pride and history. -Mike Fitzpatrick

Washington should revive international efforts begun during the Clinton administration to pressure countries with dangerously loose banking regulations to adopt and enforce stricter rules. -Kit Bond

Our National Guard, as I think everybody knows, has provided about 40 percent of the boots on the ground in Iraq and in the conflict against Islamofascism. They went into that battle, being called up for their national security service, short of equipment. -Kit Bond

Once the violence has ceased, the US should immediately call on the World Bank and other international institutions to convene a donors conference to rebuild Lebanon's shattered infrastructure. -John Conyers

We can demonstrate, by our own example, how E.U. freedoms, including the freedom of nationals of other E.U. countries to come and work here, has enabled us to expand our economy. -John Bruton

With our national savings rate well below one-percent, it is imperative that the government embrace innovative and cost-effective means of boosting personal savings. -Jim Cooper

In 1973, America imported 30 percent of its crude oil needs. Today, that number has doubled to more than 60 percent. Gas prices are as high as they are now in part because we've had no comprehensive national energy policy for the past few decades. -Gary Miller

So is it always nationalist to resist US globalization? The US thinks it is, and wants you to agree; and, moreover, to consider US interests as being universal ones. -Fredric Jameson

In most of the European countries – France stands out in its resistance to this particular form of American cultural imperialism – the national film industries were forced onto the defensive after the war by such binding agreements. -Fredric Jameson

We are living in a different world now. You can see it everywhere in international relations: It was noteworthy that, after his visit to Washington, the Chinese president's next stop was Saudi Arabia. -Daniel Yergin

So the major obstacle to the development of new supplies is not geology but what happens above ground: international affairs, politics, investment and technology. -Daniel Yergin

In a couple of years, the Chinese will be seen as regular participants in international industry. Their companies have to report to shareholders as well as to the Chinese authorities. They need to make money, they have to be efficient. -Daniel Yergin

Within a few weeks the organization for the maintenance of international peace and security, established by the San Francisco Charter, will be formally launched through the convocation of the first General Assembly of the United Nations. -Cordell Hull

Saddam Hussein has been brutal against his people, but when he was committing those crimes, the international community did not come to the rescue of the Iraqis. -Bianca Jagger

The EU and the U.S. often work together to develop international standards. This is the case in fighting terrorism and transnational crime, advancing trade liberalization, and combating piracy and intellectual property violations. -John Bruton

But our system of regulation must keep up with this. If it fails to keep up, it will hold back economic expansion. We need financial market regulation that works at national and European level. -John Bruton

The more worrying feature of the new global corporate structures is their capacity to devastate national labour markets by transferring their operations to cheaper locations overseas. -Fredric Jameson

Fortunately, the war has brought with it not alone a stark realization of what another war would mean to the world, but as well the creation of an international agency through which the nations of the world can, if they so desire, make peace a living reality. -Cordell Hull

I mean that the time where we need International agreement more than ever on the environment and the rest, poverty we are breaking up our International Institutions and the rule of law and Tony Blair is part of it. -Clare Short

I have set out to change the language of the international system. -Clare Short

I am still profoundly troubled by the war in Nicaragua. The United States launched a covert war against another nation in violation of international law, a war that was wrong and immoral. -Bianca Jagger

Governments are mandated by international law to protect people from genocide. -Bianca Jagger

George W. Bush and his administration embarked on a full-scale assault on civil liberties, human rights and the rule of law, walking away from his international obligations, tearing up international treaties, protocols and UN conventions. -Bianca Jagger

We do foreign assistance for altruistic reasons, certainly for humanitarian reasons, of course. But the main reason we do foreign assistance is we do it in the American national interest. -Roger Wicker

Talk about national interests: When we went in with Operation Iraqi Freedom, some of our allies, Turkey, for example, would not let us through. How much trouble did that cause us, because we were not able to go into Iraq through Turkey? -Roger Wicker

Since other countries and terrorist organizations are working to secure information that could threaten national security, more funding is provided in the bill to increase counter-intelligence activities. -Roger Wicker

Since 2001, the Patriot Act has provided the means to detect and disrupt terrorist threats against the U.S. Prior to enactment of the law, major legal barriers prevented intelligence, national defense, and law enforcement agencies from working together and sharing information. -Roger Wicker

We're from Rockford, Illinois, but we've always thought international. -Robin Zander

We take our international responsibilities very seriously and will not withdraw our troops from Iraq… Otherwise, the victims of terror in Madrid will have died in vain. -Marek Belka

As far as the international issues are concerned, the most important thing is the state of the transatlantic relationships, Euro-Atlantic relationships: how to develop them and how to strengthen them further. -Marek Belka

The U.S. now imports over half of its oil supply from the Middle East. This dangerous dependence on foreign energy sources is an issue of national security. -Kenny Marchant

Stable energy prices and enhanced national security will only come when we increase domestic energy resources, which was accomplished today with the opening of ANWR. -Kenny Marchant

In today's global economy, however, it is important to raise the bar of excellence even higher. Today's students must be prepared to compete effectively on an international level. -Kenny Marchant

Health care comprises nearly 20 percent of our national economy, but outdated bureaucracy and red tape have stifled competition and raised costs. As a result, today more than 45 million are without any health coverage. -John Shadegg

In the remaining months, we should focus on achieving more robust international involvement in training of Iraqi soldiers, police officers, judges, teachers, and doctors – all key elements needed to end the sectarian and civil conflict and build Iraq's future. -John Olver

America has lost the moral high ground with the rest of the world, and we have fewer allies as a result. President Bush and his administration have undermined the war on terror by using tactics outlawed by international treaty and condemned by even our closest friends. -John Olver

How we continue to fund Medicare and Medicaid into the future is a pressing issue of national concern. -James T. Walsh

My job was to teach the whole corpus of economic theory, but there were two subjects in which I was especially interested, namely, the economics of mass unemployment and international economics. -James Meade

Tact and diplomacy are fine in international relations, in politics, perhaps even in business; in science only one thing matters, and that is the facts. -Hans Eysenck

International cooperation, multilateralism is indispensable. -Hans Blix

An important consequence of freeing oneself from the fear of death is a radical opening to spirituality of a universal and non-denominational type. -Stanislav Grof

We're not short of movements proclaiming that a different world is possible, but unless we can coordinate them into an international movement, capitalism just laughs at all these little organisations. -Jose Saramago

The border sheriffs are locally elected. They're accountable. They know the territory and the people. And they can respond the most quickly to what is a real national security emergency, because the border is unprotected. -John Culberson

Foreign nationals entering the United States illegally who are taken into custody by the Border Protection Corps or by State or local law enforcement authorities must be promptly delivered to a federal law enforcement authority. -John Culberson

Federal authorities do not have the manpower or the resources to protect America's international borders. -John Culberson

After 16 months of teaching, consulting, fellowship, and special project activities on matters ranging from conservation to healthcare to international trade, Gov. Ventura appointed me to the Minnesota Court of Appeals. -David Minge

We don't need a nation that has national identity cards. -Malcolm Wallop

The ultimate end is a nation that lies under the concept of the Declaration of Indepen dence. The Declaration of Independence is such an extraordinary statement – it was designed by people skeptical of government, local or national, but in particular national. -Malcolm Wallop

You talked about national identity cards and the terrorism bill. We have made a government that has grown used to viewing us as subjects, has grown used to seeing its role as commanding us. -Malcolm Wallop

Finally we are a nation with some conscience. It means alliances are extremely important when they're based on a national interest. We have to have the ability to sustain our presence within those alliances. -Malcolm Wallop

The deaf community is in a favorable position because they have a national theatre and training groups of their own to get them started. Deaf actors have often acquired very valuable skills and experience before they get their break. -Richard Masur

While our budget shortfall is temporary, ruining pristine national lands is permanent. -Ric Keller

Millions of Americans each year use our national forests to go hiking, fishing, hunting, camping, swimming, horseback riding, and canoeing. -Ric Keller

By keeping the annuities, we could build up a national industry every years as big as the Shannon Scheme. -Eamon de Valera

It is the duty of our men to enroll themselves in the national services. We need all our manpower for defence. For the military and… we need a quarter of a million men. -Eamon de Valera

Subsequently, the Japanese people experienced a variety of vicissitudes and were involved in international disputes, eventually, for the first time in their history, experiencing the horrors of modern warfare on their own soil during World War II. -Eisaku Sato

The international order established at the end of World War II could certainly have been worse. However, this order did contain certain factors which bore within them the seeds of instability. -Eisaku Sato

The desire to see Okinawa returned to Japan developed into a broad national consensus among our people. -Eisaku Sato

Gentlemen, I fervently trust that before long the principle of arbitration may win such confidence as to justify its extension to a wider field of international differences. -Henry Campbell-Bannerman

With the adoption of the Declaration on the Elimination of Violence against Women, the international community sent out a clear message that gender based violence will not be tolerated. -Jenny Shipley

My greatest concern is that the emergence of this technology without the appropriate public attention and international controls could lead to an unstable arms race. -K. Eric Drexler

An international race in the relevant technologies is getting under way at this point, not necessarily with an understanding of where that race leads in the long run, but strongly motivated by the short-term payoffs. -K. Eric Drexler

People in New York pay attention to national issues – a huge percentage of people. -Sydney Schanberg

I don't see any move toward international pressure to stabilize the situation. -Sydney Schanberg

There are severe limitations on civil rights. In the international arena, Iran is turning into an isolated country, and the international community is becoming more hostile toward it. -Moshe Katsav

The standards of the international community manifest firmness. Iran has no need for long-range missiles or to collaborate with terrorist organizations all over the world. -Moshe Katsav

The Security Council decided to deal with Iran's nuclear intentions. The international community will not be willing to tolerate an Iran with a nuclear capability and an Iran that collaborates with terrorist organizations. -Moshe Katsav

The international community is unwilling to accept the policies of the Iranian regime. -Moshe Katsav

The international community and Israel have the same opinion regarding the Hamas government. We don't say we are going to boycott it forever. We say the Hamas government must abide by the obligations the Palestinian Authority has signed. -Moshe Katsav

In the past there were various suggestions in the framework of financial and other agreements to benefit with Iran. But Iran interpreted those suggestions in a mistaken way and deceived the international community. -Moshe Katsav

If Iran does not change its policies, it won't be able to integrate into the international community and will become even more isolated than it is now, which likely will have a negative impact on the Iranian people. -Moshe Katsav

I am sure the majority of Iranians want a peace agreement with Israel and want Iran to integrate with the international community and accept its universal values. -Moshe Katsav

Aggressive and irresponsible steps endanger the peace and stability of the world, and the international community feels the need to protect itself from Iran. -Moshe Katsav

As Brian Urquhart has said quite correctly, I don't think that individual countries in the international community can stand aside and let all of these slaughters continue without doing anything. -Alex Morrison

Moreover, broad plans commensurate with our national purpose and resources would bring conviction of our power to every soldier in the front line, to the nations associated with us in the war, and to the enemy. -Kelly Miller

We are involved in youth testing internationally. We want to try to prove without a shadow of a doubt the relationship between physical fitness and health, not just physical fitness and ability to perform. -Kenneth H. Cooper

One of the tragedies of the struggle against racism is that up to now there has been no national organization which could speak to the growing militancy of young black people in the urban ghetto. -Stokely Carmichael

I started writing and photographing for different publications and finally ended up being the correspondent in South Asia, for the Geneva-based Journal de Geneve, which at one time used to be one of the best international newspapers in Europe. -Francois Gautier

The turning point for me was when the Supreme Court installed Bush in 2000, even though he got half a million votes less nationally than Gore. It was nothing more than a bloodless coup and that's when I really started paying attention. -Mark Edwards

The national minimum wage has not been increased in 9 years. By year's end, 21 States across America will have a minimum wage exceeding the Federal minimum wage. -Sherwood Boehlert

Internationalism on the other hand admits that spiritual achievements have their roots deep in national life; from this national consciousness art and literature derive their character and strength and on it even many of the humanistic sciences are firmly based. -Christian Lous Lange

It is against this concept of the sovereign state, a state isolated by protectionism and militarism, that internationalism must now engage in decisive battle. -Christian Lous Lange

I know that my Republican colleagues are as ashamed as I am that the United States is forced to borrow over $1 trillion from foreign nations to pay for our national priorities like reconstruction of the gulf coast and the war in Iraq. -Dennis Cardoza

If the United States were to cut and run from Iraq, we would send a message of weakness that would embolden our terrorist enemies across the globe. A failed Iraq would destabilize the entire region and undermine U.S. national security for decades to come. -Dennis Cardoza

What I loathe is the multi-national conglomerates who must take responsibility for the degradation and pollution of so much of our landscape with their factory farming and greed. -Fay Godwin

The Danish glee: the national version of cheerfulness. -Georg Brandes

When I started to sing, my mother would have me engaged to perform at the Women's Christian Temperance Union national or annual meetings. I would hate doing this because I wanted to play baseball or go off skiing. -Maureen Forrester

The President's announcement sounded less like a national energy plan than like a page from an election-year play book. This Administration's plan to reduce obscene oil company profits is to regulate them less. -Nick Rahall

And also, more and more businesses really want to do the right thing. They feel better about themselves, their workers feel better, and so do their customers. I think this is equally true in the transnational corporations, but it is harder to express in those situations. -Paul Hawken

In its best prewar year, Europe with almost 300 million people had a gross national product of 150 billion dollars. In that same year, the United States with 150 million people had a gross national product of 300 billion dollars. -Paul Hoffman

The kind of national goal we ought to be thinking about is way beyond national product – it is how do we as a nation help our children be the best kinds of people they could possibly be? -Paul Wellstone

Stay with us, please remain in this country and constitute a nation based on national unity. -Robert Mugabe

I was brought up by an Episcopalian father and Presbyterian mother in nondenominational Army chapels all over the world and never really had much religious experience. -Sally Quinn

The President today once again took the opportunity to reiterate his old, failed national security strategies and present them to the American people as new, dynamic ideas intended to better protect the American people. -Ellen Tauscher

I hope that China will continue with space exploration. It would be logical to have international co-operation. I hope that it will come about and that I can be involved in it. -Leroy Chiao

Over the past year, several cases of human rights abuses, specifically sexual exploitation and abuse, by individuals involved in U.N. peacekeeping operations have raised the suspicions of many Members of Congress and members of the International Relations Committee. -Michael McCaul

Considering what Americans have been confronted with in the last ten years, domestically and internationally, it's clear that we need emotional outlets; we have to have some peace from our problems. -Pete Rozelle

There is such a thing as a national conscience, and it can be touched. -Charles Kuralt

Know how your representatives stand on major national or state issues. -Marilyn vos Savant

The Nobel Prize has given me, for the first time in my life, the feeling that my literature could be appreciated on an international level. -Naguib Mahfouz

We are offering to the American public a line of delicious Italian-American foods. They will be available through the Internet, shopping networks and national store distribution. -Rocco DiSpirito

I think I'm a focus for international attention. -Sting

I believe an international criminal court is very much to be desired. -Harold Pinter

If Milosevic is to be tried, he has to be tried by a proper court, an impartial, properly constituted court which has international respect. -Harold Pinter

There is a movement to get an international criminal court in the world, voted for by hundreds of states-but with the noticeable absence of the United States of America. -Harold Pinter

I was supposed to be women's lib, and now I'd exceeded it and gone over into international politics. -Kate Millett

I wouldn't even get elected. I'd probably deck a couple of people, too which would not play very well with the national media. -Tim Robbins

Well, there's been plenty of ultimatums, and one thing that we better be very clear is that we can't continue to have the kind of defiance of the United Nations, the defiance of the international community that we've had. -Condoleezza Rice

It is high time that the international community tell Saddam Hussein and his regime that this is not an issue of negotiation with the U.N. about obligations that they undertook in 1991. -Condoleezza Rice

I am waiting for the decision, which is not depending of me, to know if the trial will be in Iraq, in the states, or in international court. Of course, the decision is not mine. -Jacques Verges

When a French book becomes an international hit it is because of the author and not because of the language. The same goes for movies. -Jean-Jacques Annaud

The financing of my films has always been international. -Jean-Jacques Annaud

The French have got to understand that a film is so expensive that it can no longer afford to be regional or even national in scope. -Jean-Jacques Annaud

America is the only country capable of producing national movies: its culture has become a global culture. -Jean-Jacques Annaud

But reducing harmful emissions, abating our dependence on foreign oil and developing alternative renewable energy sources have benefits that go beyond environmental health, they improve personal health, enhance national security and encourage our nation's economic viability. -Jim Clyburn

The right wing has had a radio apparatus for years and years, so they've had minor leagues – they've had local rightwing guys who've become national rightwing guys, and who build slowly, and that's how it goes. We haven't had that. It isn't like we have a farm team. -Al Franken

We are a people in a quandary about the present. We are a people in search of our future. We are a people in search of a national community. -Barbara Jordan

Our concept of governing is derived from our view of people. It is a concept deeply rooted in a set of beliefs firmly etched in the national conscience, of all of us. -Barbara Jordan

We must not become the new puritans and reject our society. We must address and master the future together. It can be done if we restore the belief that we share a sense of national community, that we share a common national endeavor. It can be done. -Barbara Jordan

There is no executive order; there is no law that can require the American people to form a national community. This we must do as individuals and if we do it as individuals, there is no President of the United States who can veto that decision. -Barbara Jordan

Let there be no illusions about the difficulty of forming this kind of a national community. It's tough, difficult, not easy. But a spirit of harmony will survive in America only if each of us remembers that we share a common destiny. -Barbara Jordan

I have confidence that we can form this kind of national community. -Barbara Jordan

Well, I think any national championship is an extremely important championship to play in. -Greg Norman

Being away for the weekends, and me being the international player that I have been for those 30 years, I've spent a lot more time flying around the world, playing different golf tournaments around the world. -Greg Norman

We must recognize that as the dominant power in the world we have a special responsibility. In addition to protecting our national interests, we must take the leadership in protecting the common interests of humanity. -George Soros

I think there's a lot of merit in an international economy and global markets, but they're not sufficient because markets don't look after social needs. -George Soros

To my mind, there is a solution which has to do with democracy, because democratic governments are subject to the will of the people. So, if the people will it, you can actually create international institutions through the democratic states. -George Soros

Europe has found itself confronted with fresh challenges – challenges of a global character, the nature of which is directly connected with changes in the international climate and the difficulties of seeking new models for co-operation. -Boris Yeltsin

International terrorism is throwing down a challenge, and not just to Russia. -Boris Yeltsin

We on the left who are pro-European and Internationalist wish to unite the peoples under a social model. -Laurent Fabius

At the same time the Constitution sets in stone the Stability Pact and risks preventing member States from implementing a policy of growth. So we are not able to do things at the European or the national level. -Laurent Fabius

Our national history has so often filled us with bitterness and the feeling of helplessness. -Lech Walesa

America is the sum of all our journeys as we search for our national community and our national culture. -Paul Tsongas

Clearly, border security has been the top domestic issue of the year, and rightly so. Securing our borders is an essential aspect of our national security. -Randy Neugebauer

President Bush has a track record of making the right decisions when it comes to national security. -Randy Neugebauer

Occasionally we have to interpret an international treaty – one, perhaps, affecting airlines and liability for injury to passengers or damage to goods. Then, of course, we have to look to the precedents of other member nations in resolving issues. -Sandra Day O'Connor

I think they are paying a lot more attention to news now, by the way, in part because of national-security issues. A lot of young people have friends or family in the military today. -Tom Brokaw

Ukraine has been a strong partner to the United States on international initiatives and a committed ally in fighting the War on Terrorism. -Vito Fossella

I support the recommendations made by the International Crisis Group. The primary responsibility is for Kosovo Albanians to demonstrate that their treatment of minorities is adequate. -Emma Bonino

Albania has to demonstrate that it is willing to be a reliable partner in the international community. -Emma Bonino

This conducting thing happened. In 1983 I was sucked into this international career, which was a very scary experience. -Esa-Pekka Salonen

We do not have many intellectuals who can speak out for us internationally. We have no writers who are recognized, respected and loved outside the Arab world. -Tahar Ben Jelloun

We have no Arab intellectuals of international stature because we live in a state of generalized mediocrity. We are suspended in the pit without touching the bottom. -Tahar Ben Jelloun

To lead a country, you must periodically hold a national consultation in which people representing different programmes can make a bid for power. -Tahar Ben Jelloun

In international or national crises, there are always questions of lack of confidence. You have to change the minds of the people in order to get results. -Harri Holkeri

When the problems in Northern Ireland started, it was not a question of Protestantism or Catholicism, because the Catholic church was the only church at that time-it was a nationalist conflict. -Harri Holkeri

In the fight against terrorism, national agencies keep full control over their police forces, security and intelligence agencies and judicial authorities. -Gijs de Vries

It's important that we work very closely with moderate Muslim forces locally, nationally and internationally. -Gijs de Vries

If you combat an international phenomenon, it is indispensable to share information internationally. -Gijs de Vries

If you exchange information internationally, you must strengthen data protection. Those are two sides of the same coin. -Gijs de Vries

The central role in the fight against terrorism is with national authorities. -Gijs de Vries

You can't get closer to the heart of national sovereignty than national security and intelligence services. -Gijs de Vries

With my government, we engaged in bringing our help to fights for national freedom. At that precise moment, several countries were still colonised or had barely overcome colonisation. This was the case in practically all of Africa. We supported them. -Ahmed Ben Bella

Everywhere that the struggle for national freedom has triumphed, once the authorities agreed, there were military coups d'etat that overthrew their leaders. That is the result time and time again. -Ahmed Ben Bella

It's with them that we have constituted a liberation front and brought our logistic support to armies to help their countries come out of colonialism and establish a national internal regime. -Ahmed Ben Bella

These are the multinationals, like General Motors and Nestle; these are the big industrial groups that weigh, on the monetary scale, much more than big countries like Egypt. -Ahmed Ben Bella

In the past, we spoke of poverty, misery only in the south. Now there is a lot of misery, a lot of bad that creates victims in the north as well. This has become manifest: the global system was not made to serve the good of all, but to serve multinational companies. -Ahmed Ben Bella

I have a great advantage over many of my colleagues inasmuch as my students bring with them to class their own personal knowledge of national, regional, religious, ethnic, occupational, and family folklore traditions. -Alan Dundes

It was stunning actually, because what you would hope for from our national leaders is some reflection, some understanding that the situation that we encountered in Iraq was not what we expected, that it was not what he said it would be. -Chris Van Hollen
