Australian Quotes A-Z by Author Australian Quotes A-Z by Author

Australia must prioritise education spending. It is not a question of whether or not we have the money, it is a question of how we choose to spend it.
Bob Brown - Priorities - Learning - Money


With a small fraction of the hundreds of billions of dollars spent on the Iraq war, the US and Australia could ensure every starving, sunken-eyed child on the planet could be well fed, have clean water and sanitation and a local school to go to.
Bob Brown - Money - Poverty - War


We must have an expansionary vision, one that captures the imagination and diversity of the whole community, one which befits a nation which has moved beyond the basics of literacy and numeracy and which wants to develop a learning culture, to affirm its democratic traditions and give expression to the diversity and vibrance of its community through its public education system. Putting optimism for everyone back into Australia’s future depends on it.
Bob Brown - Learning - Ambition


The prudential regulation that I have put in place has been absolutely critical. The fiscal policy which we have put in place has been absolutely critical and if people looked at Australia now turn its back on economic reform, which of course industrial relations rollback or throwback would be, let me tell you, that would really start affecting confidence.
Peter Costello -
Economy - Australia - Politics

I think Australians are rightly suspicious of people who will try and use religion for another end. I don't think that's right and I don't think it should be done, but I think it should inform values, and it does.
Peter Costello -
Religion - Australia - Values

This is not the kind of country where you would feel comfortable if you were opposed to democracy, parliamentary law, independent courts and so I would say to people who don't feel comfortable with those values there might be other countries where they'd feel more comfortable with their own values or beliefs

Carbon capture and storage, its commercial development.. is going to be the key to the future of coal. If it is successful commercially, then the Australian coal sector will be a center of prosperity and growth; if it’s not successful then it won’t be. I think in the long run it’s as simple as that.
Ross Garnaut - Emissions - Fossil Fuel - Wealth - Carbon - Carbon Capture - Coal - Australia - Growth - Prosperity - Greenhouse

The Prime Minister seems now to be basing his re-election campaign on this plot line. He is saying to the Australian people, look out, the baddies behind you - hiss, boo and whatever you do, don’t vote Labor. This political parody of pantomime is looking and sounding desperate.
Julia Gillard - Criticism - Australia - Politics

Including everyone in the economic, wealth-creating life of the nation is today the best way for Labor (Australian Labor Party) to meet its twin goals of raising national prosperity and creating a fair and decent society.
Julia Gillard - Social - Australia - Economy - Wealth - Goals

As our economy faces up to potential labour shortages due to our ageing population and as it moves to a new level of sophistication to compete with the rest of the world, we’re going to need every Australian on board pulling their weight, rejoining the workforce, gaining new skills.
Writing off individuals and communities suffering from poverty just creates a dead weight for our economy to drag along.
Julia Gillard - Jobs - Australia - Economy - Education - Skills - Poverty

The concept of social inclusion in essence means replacing a welfarist approach to helping the underprivileged with one of investing in them and their communities to bring them into the mainstream market economy. It’s a modern and fresh approach that views everyone as a potential wealth creator and invests in their human capital. My reason for adopting such an approach is simple: at a time when Australia needs more skilled people and has an ageing population, we simply can’t afford to have one in ten or more of our people out of the workforce due to unemployment, low skills or the effects of chronic poverty. S
ocial inclusion is an economic imperative.
Julia Gillard - Social - Australia - Economy - Wealth - Skills - Poverty - Help - Employment


They might be a good friend, but they are also a bitter commercial rival. Let’s not kid ourselves.. The American wheat industry has done everything it possibly can to criticize the Australian wheat industry in order to take the Iraqi wheat market from us.
John Howard - America - Competition - Friendship
- Australia

Remarks such as ‘great Australian’, ‘larger than life’ are sometimes used where they are not appropriate. But in the case of Kerry Packer both of those descriptions are entirely appropriate. He was a great Australian, he was a larger than life character and in so many ways he left his mark on the Australian community over a very long career in business, particularly in the media and also that other great passion of his, Australian sport
John Howard - Media - Passions - Business
- Australia

If I am wrong and you are right then the democratic process of the Australian community will vindicate you and condemn me.
John Howard - Politicians - Decisions
- Australia

We must respect each other's right to choose a collective destiny, and the opportunity to develop the legal and political rights for Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples so that we may enjoy the right to maintain our culture, our heritage and our land, as a united Australia.
Jackie Huggins -
Compassion - Australia - Respect - Opportunity - Culture - Human Rights - People - Indigenous

The true essence of reconciliation is more than making friends with nonindigenous people. Our motto is united Australia, one that respects the land and the heritage of its indigenous peoples and provides justice and equity for all. I think reconciliation is about changing the structures that govern us and trying to influence opinion leaders in whatever way we can.
Jackie Huggins - Respect - Australia - Human Rights - People - Opinions - Indigenous

Citizenship has not delivered Indigenous Australians the same quality of life other Australians expect. Basic human rights involve health, housing, education, employment, economic opportunity, and equality before the law, and respect for cultural identity and cultural diversity. These human rights must be capable of being enjoyed otherwise they are empty gestures.
Jackie Huggins - Respect - Australia - Human Rights - Life - Education - Culture - Indigenous

For Indigenous Australians, equal rights and citizenship have not always translated into full participation in Australian society. All Indigenous Australians have only been counted in the census since the 1967 Referendum. Even so, State protection and welfare laws continued to control the lives of Indigenous Australians and denied them equal rights, well into the 1970's.
Jackie Huggins - Human Rights - Indigenous - Australia - Politics - Society

We have reached a pivotal time in Indigenous affairs when for the first time, national attention is being paid to the horror of Indigenous family violence in this country.
For the first time, an Australian Prime Minister has held a summit in the national capital to listen to concerns and ideas on this issue from a group of Indigenous leaders.
Jackie Huggins - Human Rights - Australia - Politicians - Indigenous - Leadership


When you look at what Star (casino) has done for Sydney over the last fifteen years.. I don't think it has done a lot. When you look at what Crown (his casino) has done for Melbourne, I think it has done an enormous amount. And there's all sorts of statistics and figures and facts that can back those things up.
James Packer - Growth - Casino - Australia - Proud

People, regardless of political views, matter in this state and in this country and in this world. And, you know, when people attack people's basic rights and livelihoods, I'm concerned about it. And as a citizen of Queensland and nothing else, I've got the right to express my view.
Clive Palmer - People - Australia - Politics - Freedom of Expression

The Greens have not been providing you with the full information about where their money comes from or what it's about.
I think the Greens in this upcoming state election should resign if they're being funded by an offshore political power. It's tantamount to treason and something needs to be done about it.
Clive Palmer - Australia - Politics - Greens - Lies - Fund Raising

I've got enough money in my life to retire now and do nothing. But I've got a duty and obligation to see if we can create more jobs in this state, and the government's got an obligation to approve projects and to assess them for the benefit of the people of Queensland.
Clive Palmer - People - Australia - Politics - Money - Rich - Responsibility - Government - Obligation - Retirement

Frank Lowy is an institution in Australian sport but judging by this decision he might be visiting a different kind of institution. He has brought the game into disrepute. The sport should not be run by dictators like him.
Clive Palmer - Australia - Funny - Crazy - Insanity - Dictator - Sports


The investment in our mining industry has been very positive for Australia but we need to be doing more if we want, as I do, more revenue for our defence.. which I think is under-resourced.. our police, our elderly, our hospitals, roads, infrastructure and communication, to be able to repay our debts and enable sustainable job opportunities for existing and future generations.
Gina Rinehart - Mining - Australia - Mineral Resources - Opportunity


My father’s vision was to see the Pilbara developed in a way that would benefit his beloved north, and West Australia and he wanted to see Australia become a stronger economy benefiting from the development of our north. His life was spent pursuing that vision.
Gina Rinehart - Economy - Australia - Ambition


I think selling techniques are basically the same in every country, except there are different cultures that have different methods of negotiating. But real estate is the same, whether it happens to be in Australia or if it happens to be in New York.
George Ross - Selling - Australia - America - Real Estate - Negotiation

Compassion is not a dirty word.. it's time we rehabilitated compassion into the national political vocabulary of this great nation of ours.
Kevin Rudd -
Compassion - Australia - Politics

Mr Howard's problem is for so long he's been a climate change sceptic, how can he, therefore, put himself to the country as part of a climate change solution for the future.
Kevin Rudd -
Australia - Politicians - Criticism - Problems - Climate Change - Solutions

We want a national emissions trading scheme, the Government does not and has rejected one for years. We want to boost the mandatory renewable energies target, the Government has failed to do that. We want a national demand side management strategy for the country to reduce electricity consumption and the Government, up until now, has done very little on that score.
Kevin Rudd -
Australia - Criticism - Environment - Government - Energy - Global Warming

I just don't really get into all that sort of personal negative stuff. My job is to outline some positive plans for the country's future and perhaps Mr. Howard and the Government don't like the fact that I'm putting out some positive alternatives. What's their preference.. for me to be a negative carping opposition leader?
Kevin Rudd -
Australia - Politicians - Criticism - Government - Negative - Positive - Planning

Australia is an absolutely fantastic country, but the only thing we lack is the ability to work harder.
Dick Smith - Work
