I like that combination between creativity and the creative process and the organization needed to make a business like this successful worldwide.
Bernard Arnault - Creativity - Business - Success - World


China has really succeeded because of its stability. So my feeling is, how are they going to maintain this fantastic stability in a very fast changing economic situation. I think this is a challenge we face, how the global region will evolve in stability with such a fast growth. If they succeed to do that, no doubt, in the next generation it will be the major area of the world, economically.
Bernard Arnault - Globalization - China - Success - World - Economy - Challenges - Change - Growth


The change we need is fixing this broken economy from the bottom up.. not tax breaks for the wealthy and huge corporations that ship U.S. jobs overseas. We need to focus on defeating al Qaeda and the Taliban and restoring America's standing in the world.. not an unending commitment in Iraq.
Joe Biden - War - Iraq - Change - Economy - Taxes - Wealth - Companies - America - Jobs - World - Commitment

We've shown the world that New York can never be defeated, because of its dynamic and diverse population and because it embodies the spirit of enterprise and the love of liberty. And because no matter who you are, if you believe in yourself and your dream, New York will always be the place for you.
Michael Bloomberg - New York City - Liberty - Dreams - Belief - World

The world is more malleable than you think and it's waiting for you to hammer it into shape.
Bono -

There is a spiritual side to our connection with the planet. And in this material world, that's anathema. It is somewhat worrying. What I say.. it makes life. It gives us fulfilment. It makes us whole human beings. And without it, we make mistakes. And, boy, are the leaders of the world making mistakes at the moment.
Bob Brown - Life - Mistakes - Politicians

Renewable energy is proven technology, the price is dropping, the rest of the world is going that way, that's where our investment should be going as well.
Bob Brown - Technology - Innovation
- Environmental

We can drift along as though there were still a cold war, wasting hundreds of billions of dollars on weapons that will never be used, ignoring the problems of people in this country and around the world, being one of the worst environmental violators on earth, standing against any sort of viable programs to protect the world's forests or to cut down on acid rain or the global warming or ozone depletion. We can ignore human rights violations in other countries, or we can take these things on as true leaders ought to and accept the inspiring challenge of America for the future.
Jimmy Carter - Environmental
- Power - War - Problems

I am not here as a public official, but as a citizen of a troubled world who finds hope in a growing consensus that the generally accepted goals of society are peace, freedom, human rights, environmental quality, the alleviation of suffering, and the rule of law. (said in his Nobel Lecture)
Jimmy Carter - Environmental

One cannot enter don Juan's world intellectually, like a dilettante seeking fast and fleeting knowledge. Nor, in don Juan's world, can anything be verified absolutely. The only thing we can do is arrive at a state of increased awareness that allows us to perceive the world around us in a more inclusive manner.
Carlos Castaneda - Knowledge - Intelligence - Awareness - Spiritual

The world’s forests need to be seen for what they are.. giant global utilities, providing essential services to humanity on a vast scale. Rainforests store carbon, which is lost to the atmosphere when they burn, increasing global warming. The life they support cleans the atmosphere of pollutants and feeds it with moisture. They help regulate our climate and sustain the lives of some of the poorest people on this Earth.
Prince Charles - Environment - Climate Change - World - Carbon - Ecology - Global Warming - Life

I am against religion because it teaches us to be satisfied with not understanding the world.
Richard Dawkins - Religion - Teaching - Understanding - Satisfaction
- World

Most people, I believe, think that you need a God to explain the existence of the world, and especially the existence of life. They are wrong, but our education system is such that many people don't know it.
Richard Dawkins - God - Religion - Belief - Education - World - Life - Wrong


Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution.
Albert Einstein - Imagination - Important - Knowledge - Inspirational - World

It is a simple fact of life on earth that there is going to be no successful mitigation of the climate change problem without a truly global effort. All developing companies or all major developing countries have to be part of that and accept substantial constraints on greenhouse gas emissions.
Ross Garnaut - Facts
- Climate Change - Problems - World - Life - Greenhouse - Emissions - Companies - Mitigation - Effort

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.
Ross Garnaut - World - Economy - History - Mystery - Life
- Health - Ignorant - Knowledge - Wealth - Power - Security

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 what’s in the atmosphere now think are very important. Currently rich countries don’t think those issues are very important.
Ross Garnaut - Climate Change - World - Greenhouse - Emissions - History - Rich - Mitigation - Costs - Responsibility - Equity - Atmosphere


There is not going to be, we can be quite certain, there’s not going to be any action on reducing greenhouse gas emissions by China or India or Indonesia or Brazil unless all developed countries are making a major effort. It will still be a big job to get them in, even if we are all making the effort. But our making the effort is a necessary condition.
Ross Garnaut - World - Emissions - Greenhouse - Mitigation - Responsibility - China - India - Brazil - Indonesia - Challenges - Effort


The scientists are virtually screaming from the rooftops now. The debate is over! There's no longer any debate in the scientific community about this. But the political systems around the world have held this at arm's length because it's an inconvenient truth, because they don't want to accept that it's a moral imperative.
Al Gore - Environmental - Crisis - Responsibility - Politicians - Ethics - Truth

I do believe that it is extremely important that each one of us is a participant in life and what's going on around us rather than being a spectator to it and if you do that, if you participate in the world, in your community, your school, your company, or your country, whatever.. they you will be useful and hopefully leave the planet a little better.
Janet Holmes a Court - Environmental - Life - Encouragement


The most important thing I've learned since becoming CEO is context. It's how your company fits in with the world and how you respond to it.
Jeffrey Immelt - Important - Learning - CEO - Companies - World

I've been seeing the change. It's been steady. It's been more controlled than people think. And my own belief is that China knows it also needs to be part of the world, and that it needs to be able to have trade with Europe and the United States in order to house and feed a billion people. That's really kind of single-mindedly what they see their role as being.
Jeffrey Immelt - Belief - Change - Control - China - World - Trade - America - Survival - Europe

I make it a point not to buy certain magazines, not because I am against tabloids or things like that, but I want to fill my mind with valid issues in the world.
Angelina Jolie - Media - Values - World - Tabloid

It's just such a freeing thing to set these great challenges for yourself, to travel, to learn more about the world, to just go out there and get crazy and get free and get strong.
Angelina Jolie - World - Freedom - Challenges - Learning - Travel - Strong - Crazy


I just started to see the world as it really is and it completely shocked me and changed my opinion on everything.. on life and my values and certainly my own sense of self.
Angelina Jolie - Values - World - Change - Opinions - Life - Self Awareness - Shock


If humanity has any hope of effecting real change for the better, it will not come from the Madison Avenue false reality makers who've cast Barack Obama as the savior of the world. To alter our course from tyranny to liberty, to defeat the corrupt elite, we must get past the puppets and confront the real power structure of the planet.
Alex Jones - Humanity - Change - Leadership
- Tyranny - Liberty - Elite - Corrupt - Power - World

The New World Order is a more palatable name for the Anglo American world empire. It's the planetary domination of London, New York, Washington over the rest of the world. It's hard to get people to join that or think they have a part in it if you called it the Anglo American world empire. If you call it the New World Order, then people in India or some place like that or the European Union might think, "Well, there's something there for us too." But that's not what it is; it's the Anglo American New World Order.
Alex Jones - World - America - New World Order
- Europe - Washington - India - Globalization

Men, for years now, have been talking about war and peace. But now, no longer can they just talk about it. It is no longer a choice between violence and nonviolence in this world; it's nonviolence or nonexistence.
Martin Luther King Jr - Death
- Life - Destructive - War - Peace - World - Violence

When our days become dreary with low hovering clouds of despair, and when our nights become darker than a thousand midnights, let us remember that there is a creative force in this universe, working to pull down the gigantic mountains of evil, a power that is able to make a way out of no way and transform dark yesterdays into bright tomorrows. Let us realize the arc of the moral universe is long but it bends toward justice.
Martin Luther King Jr - World - Creative - Evil - Power - Moral - Justice


China had never had to deal in a world of countries of approximately equal strength, and so to adjust to such a world, is in itself a profound challenge to China, which now has fourteen countries on its borders, some of which are small, but can project their nationality into China, some of which are large, and historically significant, so that any attempt by Chinese to dominate the world, would involve in a disastrous for the peace of the world.
Henry Kissinger - China - Geopolitics - World - Asia - Dominate - Peace

Today we have a temporary aberration called “industrial capitalism” which is inadvertently liquidating its two most important sources of capital.. the natural world and properly functioning societies. No sensible capitalist would do that.
Amory Lovins - Economy - Challenges
- Environmental

We develop new principles for the world out of the world’s own principles. We do not say to the world: Cease your struggles, they are foolish; we will give you the true slogan of struggle. We merely show the world what it is really fighting for, and consciousness is something that it has to acquire, even if it does not want to.
Karl Marx - World - Struggle - Fool - Conscious


The philosophers have only interpreted the world, in various ways. The point, however, is to change it.
Karl Marx - Change - Philosophy - World


America has much to gain in terms of jobs and trade by meeting the growing world demand for advanced, environmentally sound technologies.
John McCain - Environmental

The world has entered a new era, evolving from an industrial into a knowledge-based society, and into a society that wants to live in harmony with nature.
Minoru Mori - Real Estate - Society - World

We all have to expand our capabilities to encompass the changing world, its growing diversity and, indeed, its complexity.
Lachlan Murdoch - Growth - Diversity - Change
- World

Becoming carbon neutral is only the beginning. The climate problem will not be solved by one company reducing its emissions to zero, and it won't be solved by one government acting alone. The climate problem will not be solved without mass participation by the general public in countries around the globe.
Rupert Murdoch - Climate Change - Responsibility - Carbon - Problems - Companies - Solutions - World


Climate change and energy use are global problems. News Corp is a global company. Our operations affect the environment all over the world.
Rupert Murdoch - Climate Change - Responsibility - Global Warming - Media - World - Problems - Environmental


All across the world, in every kind of environment and region known to man, increasingly dangerous weather patterns and devastating storms are abruptly putting an end to the long-running debate over whether or not climate change is real. Not only is it real, it's here, and its effects are giving rise to a frighteningly new global phenomenon: the man-made natural disaster.
Barack Obama - Environmental - Global Warming - Climate Change - World - Fear - Failure

Today we're seeing that climate change is about more than a few unseasonably mild winters or hot summers. It's about the chain of natural catastrophes and devastating weather patterns that global warming is beginning to set off around the world.. the frequency and intensity of which are breaking records thousands of years old.
Barack Obama - Environmental - Global Warming - Climate Change - Failure - World

The issue of climate change is one that we ignore at our own peril. There may still be disputes about exactly how much we're contributing to the warming of the earth's atmosphere and how much is naturally occurring, but what we can be scientifically certain of is that our continued use of fossil fuels is pushing us to a point of no return. And unless we free ourselves from a dependence on these fossil fuels and chart a new course on energy in this country, we are condemning future generations to global catastrophe.
Barack Obama - Environmental - Global Warming - Action - Climate Change - World - Freedom - America - Failure


Stop viewing China like it's the Cold War. Start viewing them as a modern member of the industrialized world.
James Packer - China - Industrial
- World

Upwards of two hundred species.. mostly of the large, slow-breeding variety.. are becoming extinct here every day because more and more of the earth's carrying capacity is systematically being converted into human carrying capacity. These species are being burnt out, starved out, and squeezed out of existence.. thanks to technologies that most people, I'm afraid, think of as technologies of peace. I hope it will not be too long before the technologies that support our population explosion begin to be perceived as no less hazardous to the future of life on this planet than the endless production of radioactive wastes.
Daniel Quinn - Nature
- Life - People - World - Technology - Peace - Environmental

We've poured our poisons into the world as though it were a bottomless pit.. and we go on gobbling them up. It's hard to imagine how the world could survive another century of this abuse, but nobody's really doing anything about it. It's a problem our children will have to solve, or their children.
Daniel Quinn - Nature
- World - Insanity - Greed - Problems - Environmental - Responsibility

The world is not in any sense in danger from itself. The world is in fact not in any danger at all. It is we who are in danger.
Daniel Quinn - World - People

Man's destiny was to conquer and rule the world, and this is what he's done.. almost. He hasn't quite made it, and it looks as though this may be his undoing. The problem is that man's conquest of the world has itself devastated the world. And in spite of all the mastery we've attained, we don't have enough mastery to stop devastating the world.. or to repair the devastation we've already wrought.
Daniel Quinn - Nature - World - People - Problems - Stupid


There have been people.. ever since I've had any kind of position in the world.. who have accused me of being ruler of the world. I have to say that I think for the large part, I would have to decide to describe them as crack pots. It makes no sense whatsoever, and isn't true, and won't be true, and to raise it as a serious issue seems to me to be irresponsible.
David Rockefeller - Power - World - Crazy - Lies - Conspiracy Theory - Irresponsible

I think that the best hope for peace and prosperity in the world is greater cooperation among nations, which in turn will be produced if both our governments and the people of our countries travel more and get to know each other better.
David Rockefeller - World - Prosperity - Hope - Peace - Government - Cooperation - Travel - Understanding

For more than a century, ideological extremists at either end of the political spectrum have seized upon well-publicized incidents such as my encounter with (Fidel) Castro to attack the Rockefeller family for the inordinate influence they claim we wield over American political and economic institutions. Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as 'internationalists' and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure.. one world, if you will. If that is the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.
David Rockefeller - America - Power - World - Conspiracy Theories - Cabal - Ideology - Influential - Politics - Economy - Secret - Globalization - Economy - Guilty - International

If the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) raises the hackles of the conspiracy theorists, the Bilderberg meetings must induce apocalyptic visions of omnipotent international bankers plotting with unscrupulous government officials to impose cunning schemes on an ignorant and unsuspecting world.
David Rockefeller - World - Conspiracy Theories - Government - CFR - Bilderberg Group - Bankers - Apocalypse - Ignorant - Cunning

Populists believe in conspiracies, and one of the most enduring is that a secret group of international bankers and capitalists, and their minions, control the world's economy. Because of my name and prominence as the head of the Chase for many years, I have earned the distinction of the "conspirator in chief" from these people.
David Rockefeller - Power - World

The great fault of all ethics hitherto has been that they believed themselves to have to deal only with the relations of man to man. In reality, however, the question is what is his attitude to the world and all life that comes within his reach.
Albert Schweitzer - Life - Ethical - Nature - Attitude - World - Belief

Philanthropy is all about making a positive difference in the world by devoting your resources and your time to causes you believe in. In my case, I like to support causes where "a lot of good comes from a little bit of good," or, in other words, where the positive social returns vastly exceed the amount of time and money invested.
Jeff Skoll - Philanthropy - Positive - World - Belief - Social - Money - Change

I believe that Silicon Valley is truly a place of excellence and the impact of this tiny community on the world is completely disproportionate to its size. We are the undisputed leaders of technological change. But with our abundance of talent and resources, we also have the opportunity to be the pioneers of social change and, ultimately, this may be our greatest contribution.
Jeff Skoll - Business Ethics - Social - Belief - Change - Silicon Valley - World - Technology - Talent - Opportunity

We no longer see the world as a single entity. We’ve moved to cities and we think the economy is what gives us our life, that if the economy is strong we can afford garbage collection and sewage disposal and fresh food and water and electricity. We go through life thinking that money is the key to having whatever we want, without regard to what it does to the rest of the world.
David Suzuki - Environmental - Consumer - World - Economy - Social - Life - Money

The human brain now holds the key to our future. We have to recall the image of the planet from outer space.. a single entity in which air, water, and continents are interconnected. That is our home.
David Suzuki - People - Ecology - World - Life - Intelligent

Those who have not found their true wealth, which is the radiant joy of Being and the deep, unshakable peace that comes with it, are beggars, even if they have great material wealth. They are looking outside for scraps of pleasure or fulfillment, for validation, security, or love, while they have a treasure within that not only includes all those things but is infinitely greater than anything the world can offer.
Eckhart Tolle - Truth -
Peace - Wealth - World - Love - Frustration - Happiness

Internal and external are ultimately one. When you no longer perceive the world as hostile, there is no more fear, and when there is no more fear, you think, speak and act differently. Love and compassion arise, and they affect the world.
Eckhart Tolle - World - Love - Spiritual - Thinking - Fear - Compassion


Sometimes I wonder whether the world is being run by smart people who are putting us on, or by imbeciles who really mean it.
Mark Twain - World - Smart - Stupid - Government

If the statistics are right, the Jews constitute but one percent of the human race. It suggests a nebulous dim puff of star dust lost in the blaze of the Milky Way. Properly the Jew ought hardly to be heard of, but he is heard of, has always been heard of. He is as prominent on the planet as any other people, and his commercial importance is extravagantly out of proportion to the smallness of his bulk. His contributions to the world's list of great names in literature, science, art, music, finance, medicine, and abstruse learning are also away out of proportion to the weakness of his numbers.
Mark Twain - Religion - Jewish - Human Race - Power - World - Weakness - Science - Finance - Literature - Music
