America quotes
America
Here, the churches seemed to shrink away into eroding corners. They seem to have ceased to be essential parts of American life. They no longer give life. It is the huge buildings of commerce and trade which now align the people to attention. These in their massive manner of steel and stone say, Come unto me all ye who labor, and we will give you work.

- O'Casey, Sean
It is from the blues that all that may be called American music derives it most distinctive characteristics.

- Johnson, James Weldon
Sitting at the table doesn't make you a diner, unless you eat some of what's on that plate. Being here in America doesn't make you an American. Being born here in America doesn't make you an American.

- Malcolm X
England and America are two countries separated by a common language.

- George Bernard Shaw
The modern American tourist now fills his experience with pseudo-events. He has come to expect both more strangeness and more familiarity than the world naturally offers. He has come to believe that he can have a lifetime of adventure in two weeks and all the thrills of risking his life without any real risk at all.

- Boorstin, Daniel J.
The real American type can never be a ballet dancer. The legs are too long, the body too supple and the spirit too free for this school of affected grace and toe walking.

- Duncan, Isadora
Although he's regularly asked to do so, God does not take sides in American politics.

- Mitchell, George J.
TRUST, n. In American politics, a large corporation composed in greater part of thrifty working men, widows of small means, orphans in the care of guardians and the courts, with many similar malefactors and public enemies.

- Ambrose Bierce
The interesting and inspiring thing about America is that she asks nothing for herself except what she has a right to ask for humanity itself.

- Wilson, Woodrow T.
Our society distributes itself into Barbarians, Philistines and Populace; and America is just ourselves with the Barbarians quite left out, and the Populace nearly.

- Arnold, Matthew
The great social adventure of America is no longer the conquest of the wilderness but the absorption of fifty different peoples.

- Lippmann, Walter
Sunday: A day given over by Americans to wishing they were dead and in heaven, and that their neighbors were dead and in hell.

- H. L. Mencken
Europe has a press that stresses opinions; America a press, radio, and television that emphasize news.

- Reston, James
Why, of course, the people don't want war. Why would some poor slob on a farm want to risk his life in a war when the best that he can get out of it is to come back to his farm in one piece. Naturally, the common people don't want war; neither in Russia nor in England nor in America, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy or a fascist dictatorship or a Parliament or a Communist dictatorship... voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country.

- Hermann Goering
We have really everything in common with America nowadays, except, of course, language.

- Wilde, Oscar
I would rather have a nod from an American, than a snuff-box from an emperor.

- Byron, Lord
America is not merely a nation but a nation of nations.

- Lyndon B. Johnson
I ask you to join in a re-United States. We need to empower our people so they can take more responsibility for their own lives in a world that is ever smaller, where everyone counts. We need a new spirit of community, a sense that we are all in this together, or the American Dream will continue to wither. Our destiny is bound up with the destiny of every other American.

- Clinton, Bill
ALIEN, n. An American sovereign in his probationary state.

- Ambrose Bierce
The suburban housewife -- she was the dream image of the young American women and the envy, it was said, of women all over the world. The American housewife -- freed by science and labor-saving appliances from the drudgery, the dangers of childbirth, and the illnesses of her grandmother had found true feminine fulfillment.

- Friedan, Betty
