America quotes
America
1.

In the United States there is more space where nobody is than where anybody is. This is what makes America what it is.

- Gertrude Stein
2.

My fellow Americans, I am pleased to tell you I just signed legislation which outlaws Russia forever. The bombing begins in five minutes.

- Ronald Reagan
3.

I sometimes think that the saving grace of America lies in the fact that the overwhelming majority of Americans are possessed of two great qualities- a sense of humor and a sense of proportion.

- Franklin D. Roosevelt
4.

Reverence is the highest quality of man's nature; and that individual, or nation, which has it slightly developed, is so far unfortunate. It is a strong spiritual instinct, and seeks to form channels for itself where none exists; thus Americans, in the dearth of other objects to worship, fall to worshiping themselves.

- Child, Lydia M.
5.

It's difficult to believe that people are still starving in this country because food isn't available.

- Reagan, Ronald
6.

Intellectually I know that America is no better than any other country; emotionally I know she is better than every other country.

- Lewis, Sinclair
7.

On the whole, the great success of marriage in the States is due partly to the fact that no American man is ever idle, and partly to the fact that no American wife is considered responsible for the quality of her husband's dinners.

- Wilde, Oscar
8.

I have no further use for America. I wouldn't go back there if Jesus Christ was President.

- Chaplin, Charlie
9.

Topographically the country is magnificent -- and terrifying. Why terrifying? Because nowhere else in the world is the divorce between man and nature so complete. Nowhere have I encountered such a dull, monotonous fabric of life as here in America. Here boredom reaches its peak.

- Miller, Henry
10.

This is America. You can do anything here.

- Turner, Robert E.
11.

Power in America today is control of the means of communication.

- White, Theodore
12.

I suspect that American workers have come to lack a work ethic. They do not live by the sweat of their brow.

- Miyazawa, Kiichi
13.

But where, says some, is the king of America? Ill tell you friend, he reigns above, and doth not make havoc of mankind like the royal brute of Britain, Yet that we may not appear to be defective even in earthly honors, let a day be solemnly set apart for proclaiming the charter; let it be brought forth placed on the divine law, the word of God; let a crown be place thereon, by which the world may know, that so far as we approve of monarchy, that in America THE LAW IS KING. For as in absolute governments the King is law, so in free countries the law ought to be king; and there ought to be no other.

- Thomas Paine
14.

The problem that has no name - which is simply the fact that American women are kept from growing to their full human capacities - is taking a far greater toll on the physical and mental health of our country than any known disease.

- Betty Friedan

America had often been discovered before Columbus, but it had always been hushed up.

- Oscar Wilde
16.

When you're a mayor and you have a problem you blame the provincial government. If you are provincial government and you have a problem you blame the federal government. We don't blame the Queen any more, so once in a while we might blame the Americans.

- Jean Chretien
17.

There is nothing wrong with America that faith, love of freedom, intelligence, and energy of her citizens cannot cure.

- Eisenhower, Dwight D.
18.

The greatest tragedy in America is not the destruction of our natural resources, though that tragedy is great. The truly great tragedy is the destruction of our human resources by our failure to fully utilize our abilities, which means that most men and women go to their graves with their music still in them.

- Holmes, Oliver Wendell
19.

The white American man makes the white American woman maybe not superfluous but just a little kind of decoration. Not really important to turning around the wheels of the state. Well the black American woman has never been able to feel that way. No black American man at any time in our history in the United States has been able to feel that he didn't need that black woman right against him, shoulder to shoulder -- in that cotton field, on the auction block, in the ghetto, wherever.

- Angelou, Maya
20.

Every time Europe looks across the Atlantic to see the American eagle, it observes only the rear end of an ostrich.

- Ambrose Bierce
