When a terrorist goes to Parliament Hill, he’s looking for the prime minister and his cabinet.
The prime communities of the Southwest are survival communities. Their sustenance is governed by rainfall and wind direction. You can study little enclaves of plant materials, how they huddle together for protection. Some are nurse crops.
Antoine Predock
Barbara Castle should have been Labour’s – and Britain’s – first female prime minister. What a role model she would have been: passionate, fiery, and absolutely committed to social justice.
In 1971, when Prime Minister Indira Gandhi defeated Pakistan, and our leader, A. B. Vajpayee, who was in the Opposition, praised her, and she was credited with the military victory, similarly, why can’t Prime Minister Narendra Modi be credited for the Balakot air strike?

If I was prime minister, there would be absolutely zero risk that Brexit wouldn’t happen.
On a soap opera, you’ll do an episode and a half a day, and in prime time television, you’re hustling to get an episode done in eight days. That’s a little bit frustrating sometimes. But there’s also something exhilarating about it. It’s kind of like live theater in a way, where you get one crack at it.
To see how many Italians are going out of Italy, the sort of exodus, a great generation leaving my country, I think is the worst nightmare for me as prime minister but also for the country, of course.
Enrico Letta
There are prime examples – me, Natasha Jonas, Tony Bellew, Toni Duggan – who have come from areas around Liverpool that haven’t been the wealthiest. But we’ve also been determined to get out and then to give back.
I would absolutely classify as being incredibly progressive the fact that I am the third female prime minister.
In the end we are all sacked and it’s always awful. It is as inevitable as death following life. If you are elevated there comes a day when you are demoted. Even Prime Ministers.
Alan Clark
Prime time for men is, say, 35 to 45. Then they level off and fall off.
Once, when a British Prime Minister sneezed, men half a world away would blow their noses. Now when a British Prime Minister sneezes nobody else will even say ‘Bless You’.

The prime feature in Cornish geology is the upheaval of the granite, distorting, folding back, and altering the superincumbent beds.

For all the criticism I’ve been showered with – people calling me a betrayer, a backstabber – frankly, the only criticism I have of Manmohan Singh is that he weakened the office of the prime minister, and he brought down the dignity of the office.
As a citizen of a democratic state, I have always believed that when a prime minister is elected in Israel, even those who voted against him at the polls are obligated to desire his success.
I look back on my 20s. It’s supposed to be the prime of your life, the most vital, the most beautiful. But you’re making your critical decisions and sometimes your most critical mistakes.
Ann Brashares
My main mission when I became Prime Minister, was to keep Singapore going and Singapore has been kept going. So, I’m happy with what I’ve done for Singapore.
Goh Chok Tong
I was elected by the people of Australia as Prime Minister of Australia. I was elected to do a job, I intend to continue doing that job. I intend to continue doing it to the absolute best of my ability. Part of that job has been to steer this country through the worst economic crisis the world has seen in 75 years.
The first two Prime Ministers whom I served, Ted Heath and Margaret Thatcher drew strikingly different lessons from the Second World War.
There is no hard and fast rule that I only work with debutants. I give prime importance to script, and when that works out, everything else falls in place automatically. In fact, most debutants express interest to work with me.
I don’t work hard enough. If I had worked harder I might have been prime minister.
I would like to sound like James Mason. I reckon if I’d had a better voice I could have been prime minister. It is the most irritating voice in public life.

When I became prime minister last September, I promised the Japanese people that I would not tolerate the politics of indecision. A propensity to delay difficult and weighty decisions has been hurting our country. It is detrimental to our economy, society and future, and it cannot be allowed to continue.
Mickey is one of the prime examples: Mickey has never been suspected of being an American export. It was deja vu. They gave him a local name and he’s been accepted everywhere he goes.

If I was prime minister for a day the first thing I would do would be to close the border. Then we could work out how many people we’ve got here. Then you get people out who have committed crimes and you look at others who shouldn’t be here. Nobody knows how many people we’ve got here.
I grew up with a lot of people whose whole prime mover was dad rage. I never really had it – it always seemed so empty. It always seemed to be masking something else, which was really their own lack of initiative.
The major parties could conduct live human sacrifices on their podiums during prime time, and I doubt that anybody would notice.
The Chinese go around with lollipops in their pockets. They have aid. They have friendship deals. They build you a Prime Minister’s office or President’s office or Parliament House or Foreign Ministry. For them, trade is an extension of their foreign policy.
Nobody is above the law. Imagine if there allegations against Modi and he is the Prime Minister. Should the case not be pursued just because he has become the PM. It should not be so that it should be stopped. I am not above the law.
I was really quite geeky at school. At one point, I wanted to be prime minister or a mathematician.
Asking for a royally appointed prime minister is undemocratic. It is, pardon me, a mess. It is irrational.

Besides being a prime cause of poor economic growth, poor governance breeds corruption, which cripples investment, wastes resources, and diminishes confidence.
I have led an unusual life. I have buried a father killed at age 50 and two brothers killed in the prime of their lives. I raised my children as a single mother when my husband was arrested and held for eight years without a conviction – a hostage to my political career.
I met with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Israel, visited our allies in the Arab Gulf, traveled to Tunisia and Iraq, met with President Petro Poroshenko in Ukraine, and visited our allies in Germany, France, and the United Kingdom.
In India, no one becomes prime minister before they are in their mid-70s.
Just as the England football manager starts with bells and flags and balloons and ends up reviled, so do prime ministers. Tony Blair – is there anyone more despised now? Gordon Brown – all right, nobody voted for him but, you know… just think of any of them. Margaret Thatcher. John Major. Steve McLaren. Fabio Capello.
One of my contemporaries, a colorless chap who worked much harder at his law studies, is now Prime Minister.
Alex Cox
I’m an opposition leader. But Mr Modi is also my prime minister. Mr Modi has certain skills. He’s a very good communicator.
Tony Blair was a good politician but not a good Prime Minister, and that’s what we don’t want to be. We don’t want to be just people who are good at winning elections: we want to be good at governing. I think we benefit from having seen the mistakes that we think Tony Blair made in 1997.
British prime ministers and prime ministers’ spouses and children are together becoming ever more like first families. They need to be given sufficient resources and personnel to enable them to carry out their shifting roles efficiently, decently, and safely.
I am an ambitious person, but I am not ambitious in the sense that I want jobs only for the sake of them… I am here to do things I think are worthwhile.

Christine Milne
I think I’d be a prime candidate for canonisation.
Transport is not a ministry the ambitious should accept: no transport minister has gone on to be prime minister.

Sepp Blatter
As prime minister, I changed Israel’s position on peace negotiations. I made it clear that we are ready to go along with Resolution 242 of the U.N. Security Council, which specifies withdrawal to secure and recognized boundaries in the context of peace.
Tony Blair is not just the worst prime minister we’ve ever had, but by far the worst prime minister we’ve ever had. It makes my blood boil to think of the British soldiers who’ve died for that little liar.
George MacDonald Fraser
The Brawny man is a prime example of a guy with a cool-looking mustache.
Something is going to have to give because, if it doesn’t, not only will we get Jacob Rees-Mogg as our prime minister, we will get a devastating hard Brexit which will cause huge damage to our economy for generations to come. And I am not prepared to sit by any longer and put up with this nonsense.
This Sonia Gandhi thing should be seen in perspective – the people of India have an emotional attachment to the family. And why not? Three of the five Congress prime ministers belong to that family. The people empathise with the family name.
One of the things I’m so determined to preserve and restore is the fact that you can be the kid who was born in Dinsdale and find yourself working for the British government in the U.K., to being prime minister.
I don’t know anyone who thinks the SNC Lavalin mess was well handled, and it was all driven by Justin Trudeau. A smart prime minister would have realized early that the situation was unwinnable, that trying to have a prosecutor overruled was unwise in the extreme, and let it go.
We were making new ones the second year. We were in syndication the second year. So we were on Saturday nights, prime time, every morning, and then they put it on Sunday evenings too. So it was all over the place.
To put it simply, my support of Israel will be just as strong the day after Prime Minister Netanyahu’s address as it is today.

The prime goal of censorship is to promote ignorance, whether it is done via lying and bowdlerized school texts or by attacking individual books.
Felice Picano
Since I’ve left ‘Blue Peter‘ I’ve presented all sorts of different things. I’ve done a music show, for instance, and ‘Blue Peter’ had music on it. I’ve done a politics show, but on ‘Blue Peter’ I interviewed the Prime Minister. I’ve done travel stuff where I’ve gone abroad, but ‘Blue Peter’ had that within it as well.
I am going to be prime minister.
A prime minister’s job is to make sure the government works for those who have elected him, and not for big corporations.

Find enough clever things to say, and you’re a Prime Minister; write them down and you’re a Shakespeare.

In the sense that you’re not at the centre of power, like a president or prime minister of a major power, everyone is marginalised; my position doesn’t isn’t unique in that respect. I think there are different sorts of relevance in different contexts.
We expect to be a prime in the fighter jet business for the long run. This is not a business we’re getting out of at all.

I still feel that I am in my prime right now but I think my best fights were in my thirties.
I think 60 is when many people hit their prime. We elect many of our presidents in their 60s. At that age, people are full of ideas and their best self. I wanted to dig into my potential and bring out my best self.
One’s prime is elusive. You little girls, when you grow up, must be on the alert to recognize your prime at whatever time of your life it may occur. You must then live it to the full.
Muriel Spark
I think all our leaders are utterly beneath us. You just watch ‘Prime Minister’s Questions‘ and go: ‘How is this the best that we’ve got?’
While security of national leadership is of paramount significance, expenditure on permanent civil structures at the family home of the prime minister and chief minister from public exchequer will be a burden on their conscience.

When I was doing ‘The Prime Gig‘ with Vince, we played around so much that the director separated us like children!
Romany Malco
One of Tiger’s trademarks in his prime was his ability to fight for every stroke.
Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi looks in the mirror and sees a playboy of the old school. And men such as Dominique Strauss-Kahn, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Charlie Sheen no doubt look at Berlusconi and think, ‘Role model!’ Women, of course, know otherwise. They see him as an aging, pathetic buffoon.
Margaret was the best prime minister of my lifetime. Mythology has turned Thatcher into someone regarded either as a goddess by her supporters or an evil witch by her opponents.
My father was the Prime Minister of Pakistan. My grandfather had been in politics, too; however, my own inclination was for a job other than politics. I wanted to be a diplomat, perhaps do some journalism – certainly not politics.
For me, it’s always the script. The script which gives me the chance to do something new; that has been my prime objective ever since I started acting. There’s nothing else that excites me more than that.

Rajeev Gandhi was prime minister. We’ve had a long family relationship with them. He asked me to fight an election, and I went ahead and did it. But I was not qualified as a politician, and I am not going back there again.
I’d really like to do a prime time series. That way I could work in the same city I live in and enjoy regular hours. Movies have taken me all over the world. And that gets tiresome very quickly.
Tawny Kitaen
What kind of signal is Prime Minister Narendra Modi giving by closeting himself with tainted politicians and financial fraud-accused of YSR Congress undergoing trial?
Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can’t help them, at least don’t hurt them.
To me, being in your prime means playing your best and feeling your best, too.
If I was prime minister, I would declare a state of emergency on climate change.
I never criticized Modi. All I said was that Modi cannot be a chief minister and still nurse prime ministerial ambitions. I only suggested that he should resign as the chief minister and then stake his claim to be prime minister.
My old boss, former British prime minister David Cameron, thought Obama was one of the most narcissistic, self-absorbed people he’d ever dealt with.
‘A Perfect Place’ is character-driven. The director for that wanted a couple of identifiable themes with a bunch of variations. That is what I did. The director for ‘The Solitude of Prime Numbers’ did not want that at all.
Wonder Woman is most definitely a feminist, or a humanist, in no uncertain terms. Her prime goal in life is to teach peaceful coexistence and equality.
A man’s prime interest in life must be his work.
I thought I would be Prime Minister.
I had my doubts about ‘Yes, Prime Minister’ being successful in the U.S. because your system of government is so different than ours. But the show does seems to have a very good audience in the states.
The present times require the vigor and the activity of the prime of life; but I feel the increasing infirmities of age to such a degree, that I am conscious I cannot serve you to advantage.
Christopher Gadsden
Vallabhbhai Patel was known as the Iron Man of India, and it is said that if he was the Prime Minister then the issue of Kashmir wouldn’t have come about. And if Savarkar was the Prime Minister, Pakistan wouldn’t have come into existence.
As the crisis in Syria grows and the humanitarian tragedy becomes more clear, I appreciated Prime Minister Netanyahu’s perspective on the changes and volatility in the region.
As an economist specializing in the global economy, international trade and debt, I have spent most of my career helping others make big decisions – prime ministers, presidents and chief executives – and so I’m all too aware of the risks and dangers of poor choices in the public as well as the private sphere.
The historical kings of England are all strong soldiers and leaders, but can you be a sensitive leader? It’s the same in politics, we talk about how proud we are to have had two women prime ministers, but would we be less ready for a sensitive prime minister?
Men and women of western Sydney, it’s appropriate, you apparently believe, that Australia’s oldest surviving Prime Minister should make the concluding remarks in Australia’s oldest surviving Government House. I hope the building’s foundations are a bit more substantial than mine.
Gough Whitlam
Before I became prime minister, as mayor of Jerusalem, I became world-renowned because of my fight for the unity of Jerusalem.
The reason we didn’t acquire WCW is an incoming, rotating door, new head of Turner at that time, took prime time television literally out of the deal that we had already negotiated. Once that happened, there was no way to make any sense of it. It was really just a video library and some ring mats.
I’d be prouder still to say I was Canada’s 10th woman prime minister.

As prime minister, I was conscious of walking in Whitlam’s footsteps as our government set about creating a companion to Medicare, the National Disability Insurance Scheme.
I don’t consider 41 being in prime of life. Even if I conceived a child tomorrow I’d be 52 by the time it was 10. I’m not sure I’d have the energy, and I find that quite scary.
Prime Minister Maliki, released from American restraint, acted on his worst instincts, creating enormous distrust in Iraq’s Kurdish population and deeply embittering Sunnis in western Iraq’s Al Anbar, who lost any confidence in a Baghdad government they saw as adversarial.
The Canadian government continues to say they will not help us if we go to war with Iraq. However, the prime minister of Canada said he’d like to help, but he’s pretty sure that last time he checked, Canada had no army.
I know that a prime minister of Canada needs to be deeply respectful of the other levels of government – whether it be municipal, provincial, or even nation-to-nation relationships with aboriginal governments.
In Texas, the rangers were established on an ad hoc basis in the 1820s to protect the settlers making inroads into Spanish borderlands. Soon, Mexicans and Mexican Americans replaced Native Americans as the prime target of ranger repression.
The prime minister found something hopeful in the man’s eyes and manner. The 30 or so people who run this world analyze one another that way and then make decisions of life and death for us. Scary, but true.
Hugh Sidey
In 2014, I heard Modi ji speak about toilets. For the first time, I saw a prime minister with such an outlook. I was impressed.
I grew up in a Hindu household but went to a Roman Catholic school. I grew up with a mother who said, ‘I’ll arrange a marriage for you at 18,’ but she also said that we could achieve anything we put our minds to an encourage us to dream of becoming prime minister or president.

Els Borst
Performa’s founder and prime mover, Roselee Goldberg, has great instincts for which artists might collaborate well together.
Roberta Smith

Netflix, despite the fact that they compete very aggressively with Prime Video on the Amazon side, they run everything on top of AWS and have for several years – same with Disney, Warner, Fox, HBO and Turner, they all run on AWS.
In the dear dead days beyond recall, when I was in my prime as a film critic, the industry was booming. Hollywood, to give them their due, always called it the industry, through quite a few imagined it as an art form and went through several hours regularly at tiresome films in the sacred cause of art.
If I am prime minister, we will come out of the European Union, and part of that will be control of free movement.
The scientific community should work as hard as possible to address major issues that affect our everyday lives such as climate change, infectious diseases and counterterrorism; in particular, ‘clean energyresearch deserves far higher priority. And science and technology are the prime routes to tackling these issues.
We have to be cultured in our criticism of a tall leader like our Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Art is one of the prime ways we have of opening ourselves and going beyond ourselves. That’s what art is: it’s the product of the human being in the world and imagination, all coming together.
The prime directive of media training is that the question never matters. That an honest response is for amateurs. Media trainers advise memorizing a set of non-responses and repeating them no matter what question is asked.
My childhood dream was to be prime minister.
Till now I have never shot a scene without taking account of what stands behind the actors because the relationship between people and their surroundings is of prime importance.

I love meeting people who’ve read my books. The prime reason to be on the planet is to make things I can show to other people: paintings, books, movies.
We have to be eyes-wide-open with China. If I’m prime minister, we will have a serious, mature approach with China that I think shows our concerns with them on the global stage.

I am called repeatedly and insidiously prime and sole minister.
An all-girls school, when you have 800 girls from the age of 11 to 18, you would think, should be a prime opportunity to really inject a sense of confidence and power. And instead, we were very much taught in relation to men, in terms of what the brother school would think of us.

When the president and the prime minister decide to implement reforms, they have all the measures they need to pass them and enforce them.
Had I done the movies that were offered to me in my prime, at the height of my career, I would have been alongside the likes of Denzel Washington. But, I chose not to do those movies.
In my prime, I was the ruler. Simple as that. I understand there’s a lot of great fighters who’ve followed me already since I was the champ – and I hope there’s another who comes along does even better because want to see that – but I haven’t seen anyone do what I did yet.
In 2004, President Bush gave Prime Minister Sharon certain guarantees about American policy, but the Obama administration treated those as a kind of private letter having no binding policy impact.

Frankly, everyone knows that Iain Duncan Smith is not making the impact we would all like him to be as our leader and is not making the necessary impact to carry credibility with the electorate as the alternative prime minister.
The truth, Prime Minister, is that you have run out of our money. The country as a whole is now in negative equity. Every British child is born owing around 20,000 pounds. Servicing the interest on that debt is going to cost more than educating the child.
As prime minister, I was the Israeli leader who walked the greatest distance in his offers to the Palestinians.
When I will become prime minister, SC Mishra, Naseemuddin Siddiqui and Swami Prasad Maurya will be Union ministers with with important portfolios but the chief minister of UP will only be a Dalit who has dedicate his life for BSP.

In my experience, not all women want to run the world. Not all women want to run a big banking conglomerate. Not all women want to be prime minister. What a lot of women want is a good career that respects them… and high-quality, affordable childcare.
I’d love to be everywhere but I can’t. I have three children and a husband who is prime minister. I need help. I need a team to help me serve the people.
When Prime Minister Erdogan came to Washington in 2009, he sounded almost like the ambassador from Iran.
When I served as prime minister last time, I failed to prioritize my agenda. I was eager to complete everything at once, and ended my administration in failure. After resigning, for six years I traveled across the nation simply to listen.
