Nations quotes
Nations
The true courage of civilized nations is readiness for sacrifice in the service of the state, so that the individual counts as only one amongst many. The important thing here is not personal mettle but aligning oneself with the universal.

- Hegel, Georg
Methinks I see in my mind a noble and puissant nation rousing herself like a strong man after sleep, and shaking her invincible locks. Methinks I see her as an eagle mewing her mighty youth, and kindling her undazzled eyes at the full midday beam.

- Milton, John
Frenchmen have an unlimited capacity for gallantry and indulge it on every occasion.

- Moliere
The true and solid peace of nations consists not in equality of arms, but in mutual trust alone.

- Pope John XXIII
The United Nations cannot do anything, and never could; it is not an animate entity or agent. It is a place, a stage, a forum and a shrine... a place to which powerful people can repair when they are fearful about the course on which their own rhetoric seems to be propelling them.

- O'Brien, Conor Cruise
Without a country, I am not a man.

- Al-Sabah, Nawaf Al-Nasir
A constitution that is made for all nations is made for none.

- Maistre, Joseph De
History teaches us that men and nations behave wisely when they have exhausted all other alternatives.

- Abba Eban
States are as the men, they grow out of human characters.

- Plato
As Mankind becomes more liberal, they will be more apt to allow that all those who conduct themselves as worthy members of the community are equally entitled to the protections of civil government. I hope ever to see America among the foremost nations of justice and liberality.

- George Washington
Great nations write their autobiographies in three manuscripts -- the book of their deeds, the book of their words and the book of their art.

- Ruskin, John
For my name and memory I leave to men's charitable speeches, and to foreign nations and the next ages.

- Bacon, Francis
Doing abominations is against the law, particularly if the abominations are done while wearing a lobster bib.

- Woody Allen
Men may be linked in friendship. Nations are linked only by interests.

- Hochhuth, Rolf
Nationality is the miracle of political independence; race is the principle of physical analogy.

- Disraeli, Benjamin
I do not love you

I do not love you as if you were salt-rose, or topaz,
or the arrow of carnations the fire shoots off.
I love you as certain dark things are to be loved,
in secret, between the shadow and the soul.

I love you as the plant that never blooms
but carries in itself the light of hidden flowers;
thanks to your love a certain solid fragrance,
risen from the earth, lives darkly in my body.

I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where.
I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride;
so I love you because I know no other way

that this: where I does not exist, nor you,
so close that your hand on my chest is my hand,
so close that your eyes close as I fall asleep.

- Neruda, Pablo
If it were not for the government, we should have nothing to laugh at in France.

- Chamfort, Sebastien-Roch Nicolas De
Shall we then judge a country by the majority, or by the minority? By the minority, surely. 'Tis pedantry to estimate nations by the census, or by square miles of land, or other than by their importance to the mind of the time.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo
The strength of a nation, especially of a republican nation, is in the intelligent and well ordered homes of the people.

- Sigourney, Lydia
For too long, many nations, including my own, tolerated, even excused, oppression in the Middle East in the name of stability. Oppression became common, but stability never arrived. We must take a different approach. We must help the reformers of the Middle East as they work for freedom, and strive to build a community of peaceful, democratic nations.

- George W. Bush
