It’s a sad day in this country when you can’t talk about law and order unless they want to call you a racist.

We as Americans believe it’s OK to kill people. We believe it’s OK to invade a country that had nothing to do with 9/11.

When trouble breaks out, our men and women in uniform, they don’t just sit around thinking about it or talking about it – they act. They put on that uniform. They leave their loved ones behind.

As a country, we can’t teach kids how to read and write when we got 18 years to do it. And that’s – that’s a disgrace.
And that’s really what’s happening in this country is a violation of the First Commandment. We have become a country entrenched in idolatry, and that idolatry is the dependency upon our government. We’re supposed to depend upon God for our protection and our provision and for our daily bread, not for our government.
If any country was a mine-shaft canary for the reintroduction of cholera, it was Haiti – and we knew it.

To make us love our country, our country ought to be lovely.
America was never officially a Christian nation, since neither Jesus Christ nor the Bible are mentioned in the Constitution or the Declaration of Independence. But there’s no denying the influence Christianity has had on our country.

The Army is into every business in this country. Except hairdressing.

The land is ours. It’s not European and we have taken it, we have given it to the rightful people… Those of white extraction who happen to be in the country and are farming are welcome to do so, but they must do so on the basis of equality.
A black person grows up in this country – and in many places – knowing that racism will be as familiar as salt to the tongue. Also, it can be as dangerous as too much salt. I think that you must struggle for betterment for yourself and for everyone.

When you decide to get involved in a military operation in a place like Syria, you’ve got to be prepared, as we learned from Iraq and Afghanistan, to become the government, and I’m not sure any country, either the United States or I don’t hear of anyone else, who’s willing to take on that responsibility.
There is a separation – a very clear separation – between the judiciary, the legal system, and the political system in this country, and that’s why Labor has a problem with the issue of mandatory sentencing as a principle.

Democracy, good governance and modernity cannot be imported or imposed from outside a country.

All of us that have teams want to pick the right people. I’ve thought a lot about that. In the NFL, we’ve got 13 scouts traveling the country. We’re trying to pick 22 year-olds coming out of college who will be successful in the NFL. It’s very hard to do. What I’ve learned is it’s always character first.
If a country is to be corruption free and become a nation of beautiful minds, I strongly feel there are three key societal members who can make a difference. They are the father, the mother and the teacher.
In order to lead a country or a company, you’ve got to get everybody on the same page and you’ve got to be able to have a vision of where you’re going.

It is possible to read the history of this country as one long struggle to extend the liberties established in our Constitution to everyone in America.

In Hungary, if homosexuals would like to live together, they can do so under the civil code. But what we call marriage is exclusively for one man and one woman. We are a Christian country. That’s a historical fact.

Food service workers, home care workers, farm workers, and other low-wage workers log long hours. They come home tired after providing services and producing goods that make our country stronger. They deserve fair treatment from their employers, and they deserve a voice in collective bargaining.
You have to love your country like an adult loves somebody, not like a child loves its mommy. And right-wing Republicans tend to love America like a child loves its mommy, where everything Mommy does is okay.

I was one of those children forced into fighting at the age of 13, in my country Sierra Leone, a war that claimed the lives of my mother, father and two brothers.

Country’s hip; it’s cool music.
I suppose more than anything, it’s the way of life in this part of the country that influences my writing. In Eastern North Carolina, with the exception of Wilmington, most people live in small towns.
I believe that voting is the first act of building a community as well as building a country.
Science knows no country, because knowledge belongs to humanity, and is the torch which illuminates the world. Science is the highest personification of the nation because that nation will remain the first which carries the furthest the works of thought and intelligence.
Part of the American dream is to live long and die young. Only those Americans who are willing to die for their country are fit to live.
No country has ever closely scrutinized itself visually.
Most people don’t want to change. They’re comfortable and set in their ways. But in order to change, you have to be able to agitate people at times. And I think that’s something that’s very necessary for us to improve as a country.
Where you see wrong or inequality or injustice, speak out, because this is your country. This is your democracy. Make it. Protect it. Pass it on.
Humanity has won its battle. Liberty now has a country.
I never thought that I could reach such a high political position. But I have always been ready to serve my country.
My personal opinion, Suni Williams – I think that when we really leave the planet – we all go as humans, not as people from one country or another. We are humans; we work together. This is our only planet as human beings that we know of. So we all should have an interest in preserving it.
Armed Forces Day on May 21, and the Memorial Day weekend that follows, is a time to honor, remember and recognize those who serve and have served our country, as well as those who have died in service.

Science and technology are a propellant for building a thriving country, and the happiness of the people and the future of the country hinge on their development.

The filth and noise of the crowded streets soon destroy the elasticity of health which belongs to the country boy.
What this country needs is a really good five cent cigar.
For me, education has never been simply a policy issue – it’s personal. Neither of my parents and hardly anyone in the neighborhood where I grew up went to college.

The only important thing I have to say is that my father never fought against his country.
May God save the country, for it is evident that the people will not.

There is nothing nobler than risking your life for your country.
Sell a country?! Why not sell the air, the great sea, as well as the earth? Did not the Great Spirit make them all for the use of his children?
It is very nearly impossible… to become an educated person in a country so distrustful of the independent mind.
A country without a strong leader will go down.
I see friends who are in different genres of music, and they say they’re so burnt playing the same stuff every night. That’s why you see a country act wanting to go out and play an old classic rock song. But what cracks me up is that they all want to be Jimmy Buffett. I can’t figure that out.
I haven’t been baptised. My dad’s not in the church and is not a religious person. My mum is more spiritual – she does Thai-chi and goes to Stonehenge and things like that. I’m proud to be pagan. Finland is not really a religious country. I’m still looking for my god.
Too bad that all the people who know how to run the country are busy driving taxicabs and cutting hair.
Every successful social movement in this country’s history has used disruption as a strategy to fight for social change. Whether it was the Boston Tea Party to the sit-ins at lunch counters throughout the South, no change has been won without disruptive action.

It’s a great country, where anybody can grow up to be president… except me.

When you travel, remember that a foreign country is not designed to make you comfortable. It is designed to make its own people comfortable.
It doesn’t matter what country or what political system you are from. Space brings you together.
A country that cannot feed itself cannot have self-pride, and in the mid-’60s 20 percent of all the wheat produced in America came into India. We were agriculturally a basket case. And 15 years later, 20 years later, we have become an agricultural power. This is the famous Green Revolution.
Voting is the expression of our commitment to ourselves, one another, this country and this world.
I believe in that old adage that ‘as goes California, so goes the country.’

The most important thing I want people to know about Haiti is the fact that we have some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, and there is such an opportunity for this to be such a destination. It is not a country that is just turmoil.
Anybody can be good in the country. There are no temptations there.
Sir Hugh Greene is the man I hold most responsible for the state of our country today. For 11 years hardly a week went by without a sniping reference to me. And he gave access to anyone who was prepared to say anything morally subversive.
Winning or losing of the election is less important than strengthening the country.
When a country has the skill and self-confidence to take action against its biggest problems, it makes outsiders eager to be a part of it.

In the heart of the Great Depression, millions of American workers did something they’d never done before: they joined a union. Emboldened by the passage of the Wagner Act, which made collective bargaining easier, unions organized industries across the country, remaking the economy.
The storytelling in country music is so powerful.
When the people who are responsible for our country ask you a direct question, I expect them to accept a direct answer, not to be blackballed because you are telling the truth.

I love country music. Like, I really, really, really love country music.
I see little of more importance to the future of our country and of civilization than full recognition of the place of the artist. If art is to nourish the roots of our culture, society must set the artist free to follow his vision wherever it takes him.
Imagine a country that flies into space, launches Sputniks, creates such a defense system, and it can’t resolve the problem of women’s pantyhose. There’s no toothpaste, no soap powder, not the basic necessities of life. It was incredible and humiliating to work in such a government.
Anyone who doesn’t feel the crosses simply doesn’t get that country.
If you don’t have liberty and self-determination, you’ve got nothing, that’s what this is what this country is built on. And this is the ultimate self-determination, when you determine how and when you’re going to die when you’re suffering.
I spent thirty-three years and four months in active military service as a member of this country’s most agile military force, the Marine Corps. I served in all commissioned ranks from Second Lieutenant to Major-General.
Let the punishments of criminals be useful. A hanged man is good for nothing; a man condemned to public works still serves the country, and is a living lesson.
If we love our country, we should also love our countrymen.
My government is working for the common man. Our priority is the poor of the country. We want good governance through a dynamic and seamless government.
I hope we shall crush in its birth the aristocracy of our monied corporations which dare already to challenge our government to a trial by strength, and bid defiance to the laws of our country.
I didn’t leave bodybuilding until I felt that I had gone as far as I could go. It will be the same with my film career. When I feel the time is right, I will then consider public service. I feel that the highest honor comes from serving people and your country.
I think race and racism is probably the most studied social, economic, and political phenomenon in this country, but it’s also the least understood.

China is a big country, inhabited by many Chinese.
If there are men in this country big enough to own the government of the United States, they are going to own it.
If you play cricket for India, money is bound to come, and with IPL in and match money of the Ranjhi trophy, I think money is there. There’s no good reason why you should not work hard, because at the end of the day, you want to play for your country.
The country makes me more paranoid, you know? I think the crazy people out there are little crazier.
Kitty Wells was the first and only Queen of Country Music, no matter what they call the rest of us. She was a great inspiration to me as well as every other female singer in the country music business. In addition to being a wonderful asset to country music, she was a wonderful woman.

North Americans don’t understand… that our country is not just Cuba; our country is also humanity.
America is just the country that how all the written guarantees in the world for freedom are no protection against tyranny and oppression of the worst kind. There the politician has come to be looked upon as the very scum of society.
