Literature transmits incontrovertible condensed experience... from generation to generation. In this way literature becomes the living memory of a nation.
I stand before you today as a disciplined conservative Texan, a committed Republican and a proud American, united with you to restoring our nation and revive the American dream.
The world has never yet seen a truly great and virtuous nation because in the degradation of woman the very fountains of life are poisoned at their source.
No man shall have the right to fix the boundary to the march of a Nation.
Charles Stewart Parnell
This position is untenable, and there can be no pause in the agitation for full political power and responsibility until these are granted to all the women of the nation.
A nation which makes the final sacrifice for life and freedom does not get beaten.
Mustafa Kemal Ataturk
The 9/11 Commission recently released their report, citing important changes which need to be made to improve our nation's homeland security. I voiced my disappointment with the House leadership when this report was left until after the August recess for action.
I had great admiration for the election of President Obama. I believe that the U.S. at that moment showed tremendous capacity to show that it is a great nation, and it surprised the world. It may be very difficult to be able to elect a black president in the U.S. - as it was very difficult to elect a woman president in Brazil.
As the family goes, so goes the nation and so goes the whole world in which we live.
Pope John Paul II
America is the only nation in history which miraculously has gone directly from barbarism to degeneration without the usual interval of civilization.
It's nice to say let's be bipartisan. But we're a partisan nation. We were raised as a partisan nation.

In any democratic, civilized - even non-democratic nations, if you are a nation, it means to say that in our case, if there's a hurricane in Louisiana, the people of Vermont are there for them. If there's a tornado in the Midwest, we are there for them. If there's flooding in the East Coast, the people in California are there for us.
I feel my heart break to see a nation ripped apart by it's own greatest strength - it's diversity.
Clearly, apprenticeships are a win-win: They provide workers with sturdy rungs on that ladder of opportunity and employers with the skilled workers they need to grow their businesses. And yet in America, they've traditionally been an undervalued and underutilized tool in our nation's workforce development arsenal.
In celebration of this Earth Day, I encourage all Members of the House to support legislation aimed at investing in the improvement of water quality in our Nation's lakes, rivers, streams and estuaries.
Where I would fault President Bush the most was that, in the wake of 9/11, he motivated our military, but he didn't call the nation into a state of war. And he didn't explain that this would take though a communal effort against common foe.

We are not afraid to entrust the American people with unpleasant facts, foreign ideas, alien philosophies, and competitive values. For a nation that is afraid to let its people judge the truth and falsehood in an open market is a nation that is afraid of its people.
