History Quotes A-Z by Author
Large newspapers are routinely censored
by legal costs. It is time this stopped.
It is time a country said, enough is enough,
justice must be seen, history must be preserved,
and we will give shelter from the storm.
Assange - Newspapers
Theres no denying that a collapse
in stock prices today would pose serious
macroeconomic challenges for the United
States. Consumer spending would slow, and
the U.S. economy would become less of a
magnet for foreign investors. Economic growth,
which in any case has recently been at unsustainable
levels, would decline somewhat. History
proves, however, that a smart central bank
can protect the economy and the financial
sector from the nastier side effects of
a stock market collapse.
Bernanke - Problems
The mistakes of the Iraq war are not only
tactical and strategic, but historical.
It is essentially a war of colonialism,
attempted in the post-colonial age.
Brzezinski - Geopolitics
The notion that somehow or another theyll
(Iran) put it in a picnic basket and hand
it to some terrorist group is merely an
argument that may be convincing to some
people who don't know anything about nuclear
dont find that argument very credible,
Im not sure that people who make it
even believe in it. But its a good
argument to make if you have no other argument
to make. The fact of the matter is, Iran
has been around for 3000 years, and that
is not a symptom of a suicidal instinct.
Brzezinski - Geopolitics
One has to understand what the enemy is
all about: the enemy's history, the enemy's
culture, the enemy's aspirations. If you
understand these well, you can perhaps move
Brzezinski - Enemy
The threat of China is not military. The
threat of China is they can't be intimidated.
Europe you can intimidate. When the US tries
to get people to stop investing in Iran,
European companies pull out, China disregards
it. You look at history and understand why
they've been around for 4,000 years,
they have contempt for the barbarians, they
just don't give a damn.
Chomsky - China
To be ignorant of what occurred before you
were born is to remain always a child. For
what is the worth of human life, unless
it is woven into the life of our ancestors
by the records of history?
Tullius Cicero - History
I think the important thing to learn is
that we can retain a sentimental loyalty
to the cultural and literary traditions
of, say, Judaism, Anglicanism or Islam,
and even participate in religious rituals
such as marriages and funerals, without
buying into the supernatural beliefs that
historically went along with those traditions.
We can give up belief in God while not losing
touch with a treasured heritage.
Dawkins - God
We are all atheists about most of the gods
that humanity has ever believed in. Some
of us just go one god further.
Dawkins - God
Almost everybody today believes that nothing
in economic history has ever moved as fast
as, or had a greater impact than, the Information
Revolution. But the Industrial Revolution
moved at least as fast in the same time
span, and had probably an equal impact if
not a greater one.
Drucker - Technology
Economic development over the past two centuries
has taken most of humanity from lives that
were brutal, ignorant and short, to personal
health and security, material comfort and
knowledge that were unknown to the elites
of the wealthiest and most powerful societies
in earlier times.
Garnaut - World
The international equity question arises
from the costs of climate change itself
and mitigation varying greatly across countries.
It is affected by the historical responsibility
for current greenhouse gas emissions, which
countries which were not responsible for
whats in the atmosphere now think
are very important. Currently rich countries
dont think those issues are very important.
Garnaut - Climate
Change - World
We've got the most prosperous culture in
human history and we've also got the biggest
spiritual hole in human history. People
are saying, "I can't fill the hole
with money. I can't fill it with alcohol,
or drugs, or sex, so what do I need to fill
Victor Hansen - Life
Naturally, every age thinks that all ages
before it were prejudiced, and today we
think this more than ever and are just as
wrong as all previous ages that thought
so. How often have we not seen the truth
condemned! It is sad but unfortunately true
that man learns nothing from history.
Jung - History
From the living fountain of instinct flows
everything that is creative; hence the unconscious
is not merely conditioned by history, but
is the very source of the creative impulse.
It is like Nature herself.. prodigiously
conservative, and yet transcending her own
historical conditions in her acts of creation.
Jung - History
China is a country with a record of continuous
self-government going back 4,000 years,
the only society that has achieved this.
One must start with the assumption that
they must have learnt something about the
requirements for survival, and it is not
always to be assumed that we know it better
than they do.
Kissinger - China
Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature,
the heart of a heartless world, just as
it is the spirit of a spiritless situation.
It is the opium of the people. The abolition
of religion as the illusory happiness of
the people is required for their real happiness.
The demand to give up the illusion about
its condition is the demand to give up a
condition which needs illusions.
Marx - Religion
Communism is the riddle of history solved,
and it knows itself to be this solution.
Marx - History
We have technology, finally, that for the
first time in human history allows people
to really maintain rich connections with
much larger numbers of people.
Omidyar - Technology
Many leaders of big organizations, I think,
don't believe that change is possible. But
if you look at history, things do change,
and if your business is static, you're likely
to have issues.

Countries without much history, or without
much sad history, are more naive. But in
their naivety they are realists, they can
see their problems easily.
Pamuk - Problems
We need to develop respect for our history,
despite all of its flaws, and love for the
Fatherland. We need to pay the utmost attention
to our common moral values and consolidate
Russian society on this basis. I think that
this is an absolute priority.
Putin - Society
Russia is an ancient country with historical,
profound traditions and a very powerful
moral foundation. And this foundation is
a love for the Motherland and patriotism.
Patriotism in the best sense of that word.
Incidentally, I think that to a certain
extent, to a significant extent, this is
also attributable to the American people.
Putin - Russia
Russia has made its choice in favor of democracy.
Fourteen years ago, independently, without
any pressure from outside, it made that
decision in the interests of itself and
interests of its people.. of its citizens.
This is our final choice, and we have no
way back. There can be no return to what
we used to have before.
Putin - Society
I do not know how history will judge me,
but let me say that Ive spent a lot
of time and energy trying to transform the
Tatas from a patriarchal concern to an institutional
enterprise. It would, therefore, be a mark
of failure on my part if it were perceived
Tata epitomises the Groups success.
What I have done is establish growth mechanisms,
play down individuals and play up the team
that has made the companies what they are.
I, for one, am not the kind who loves dwelling
on the I. If history remembers
me at all, I hope it will be for this transformation.
Tata - India
Group - History
In fact, at this point in history, the most
radical, pervasive, and earth-shaking transformation
would occur simply if everybody truly evolved
to a mature, rational, and responsible ego,
capable of freely participating in the open
exchange of mutual self-esteem. There is
the 'edge of history.' There would be a
real New Age.
