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.
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.
Labor Day is devoted to no man, living or dead, to no sect, race or nation.
The promise of the American Dream requires that we are all provided an equal opportunity to participate in and contribute to our nation.
Charles B. Rangel
The nation that secures control of the air will ultimately control the world.
Alexander Graham Bell
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.
From the early 1960s to the mid-1980s - the era of military dictatorship when South Korea was rebuilding itself from a postwar economic basket case to a humming, modern nation - military schools were the track of choice for ambitious young men.
In 1968, America was a wounded nation. The wounds were moral ones; the Vietnam War and three summers of inner-city riots had inflicted them on the national soul, challenging Americans' belief that they were a uniquely noble and honorable people.
I do have concerns about the current efforts to restructure our nation's intelligence community.
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.
John F. Kennedy
We should be dreaming. We grew up as kids having dreams, but now we're too sophisticated as adults, as a nation. We stopped dreaming. We should always have dreams.
We must work to stabilize Social Security. We must not gamble with our nation's social insurance program, one of our most popular and effective federal programs that has remained dependable and stable for the past 70 years.
There is no instance of a nation benefitting from prolonged warfare.
We need to help students and parents cherish and preserve the ethnic and cultural diversity that nourishes and strengthens this community - and this nation.
The state has no business in the bedrooms of the nation.
India is a geographical term. It is no more a united nation than the Equator.
Our progress as a nation can be no swifter than our progress in education. The human mind is our fundamental resource.
John F. Kennedy
Govern a great nation as you would cook a small fish. Do not overdo it.
C. S. Lewis
