Accountability quotes by Jim Cramer

Accountability quotes by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
#3. The Nazis, for him, are merely available movie tropes
articulate monsters with a talent for sadism. By making the Americans cruel, too, he escapes the customary division of good and evil along national lines, but he escapes any sense of moral accountability as well. In a Tarantino war, everyone commits atrocities. Like all the director's work after 'Jackie Brown,' the movie is pure sensation. It's disconnected from feeling, and an eerie blankness
it's too shallow to be called nihilism
undermines even the best scenes. - Author: David Denby
Accountability quotes by David Denby
#4. Because we do not understand all the circumstances surrounding someone's suicide, the level of the person's accountability, and the penalty that the Lord, in his infinite love and wisdom, may see fit to inflict upon the person, we must avoid judgment. Regardless of those circumstances and the Lord's divinely imposed punishment, followers of Christ are to be loving and compassionate to those who are hurt by the act of suicide. - Author: Brent L. Top
Accountability quotes by Brent L. Top
#5. When I'm at the bottom looking up, the main question may not be 'how do I get out of this hole?' In reality, the main question might be 'how do I get rid of the shovel that I used to dig it? - Author: Craig D. Lounsbrough
Accountability quotes by Craig D. Lounsbrough
#6. It's my job as president and Congress's job to make sure that there's some rules of the road that people are gonna abide by, and that we've got transparency and accountability. But this stuff is being posted. And one of the things that we're gonna do is put together an independent board on the recovery package. - Author: Barack Obama
Accountability quotes by Barack Obama
#7. Millions of people are asking for accountability, for responsibility, for truth from their elected officials, truth about how Obamacare is failing the men and women of America. - Author: Ted Cruz
Accountability quotes by Ted Cruz
#8. Again, the truth of the matter is we haven't paid that much attention to high school accountability. - Author: Margaret Spellings
Accountability quotes by Margaret Spellings
#9. Anger is an assertion of rights and worth. It is communication, equality, and knowledge. It is intimacy, acceptance, fearlessness, embodiment, revolt, and reconciliation. Anger is memory and rage. It is rational thought and irrational pain. Anger is freedom, independence, expansiveness, and entitlement. It is justice, passion, clarity, and motivation. Anger is instrumental, thoughtful, complicated, and resolved. In anger, whether you like it or not, there is truth.

Anger is the demand of accountability. It is evaluation, judgment, and refutation. It is reflective, visionary, and participatory. It's a speech act, a social statement, an intention, and a purpose. It's a risk and a threat. A confirmation and a wish. It is both powerlessness and power, palliative and a provocation. In anger, you will find both ferocity and comfort, vulnerability and hurt. Anger is the expression of hope. - Author: Soraya Chemaly
Accountability quotes by Soraya Chemaly
#10. A heck of a lot more accountability comes from individuals or the church doing it than the government, that signs off on helping people at 5 o'clock, because it comes from the heart, not from a badge or a mandate. - Author: Doug LaMalfa
Accountability quotes by Doug LaMalfa
#11. The best way to deal in a transparent world is just be transparent. Let your life be authentic and let people look in. Because if they want to find out, they're gonna find out. And so to me it's given me a greater sense of accountability as a CEO. It's given me a greater opportunity to lead. - Author: Michael Hyatt
Accountability quotes by Michael Hyatt
#12. But the man is, as it were, clapped into jail by his consciousness. As soon as he has once acted or spoken with eclat, he is a committed person, watched by the sympathy or the hatred of hundreds, whose affections must now enter into his account. - Author: Ralph Waldo Emerson
Accountability quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#13. Remember that the mantle of leadership is not the cloak of comfort, but the robe of responsibility. Accountability is not for the intention but for the deed. You must continue to choose the harder right, instead of the easier wrong. - Author: Thomas S. Monson
Accountability quotes by Thomas S. Monson
#14. A basic premise of restorative practices is that the increasingly inappropriate behavior in schools is a direct consequence of the overall loss of connectedness in our society. By fostering inclusion, community, accountability, responsibility, support, nurturing and cooperation, circles restore these qualities to a community or classroom and facilitate the development of character. As a consequence of fostering relationships and a sense of belonging, academic performance, too, flourishes. - Author: Bob Costello
Accountability quotes by Bob Costello
#15. There is a mysterious dance that happens in the family between privilege and responsibility, between trust and accountability. One step forward of responsibility allows for a step forward of privilege. The weight of trust requires the counterweight of accountability. Cloistered parents allow space between themselves and their children for this dance to take place. We don't smother our kids. Neither do we abandon them. We dance together with them. - Author: David Robinson
Accountability quotes by David Robinson

Accountability quotes by Elyse M. Fitzpatrick
#19. It sometimes happens that evidence accumulates across many studies to the point where scientists must change their minds. I've seen this happen in my colleagues (and myself) many times,34 and it's part of the accountability system of science - you'd look foolish clinging to discredited theories. But for nonscientists, there is no such thing as a study you must believe. It's always possible to question the methods, find an alternative interpretation of the data, or, if all else fails, question the honesty or ideology of the researchers. - Author: Jonathan Haidt
Accountability quotes by Jonathan Haidt
#20. I don't like the idea of something where you have to depend upon the integrity of the man and not the integrity of the institution. - Author: Dwight D. Eisenhower
Accountability quotes by Dwight D. Eisenhower
#21. There is no fault, only responsibility. - Author: Rob Liano
Accountability quotes by Rob Liano
#22. Why is it that we all - myself included - believe these stories? Why are we so quick to assume that the TSA is a bunch of jack-booted thugs, officious and arbitrary and drunk with power? It's because everything seems so arbitrary, because there's no accountability or transparency in the DHS. - Author: Bruce Schneier
Accountability quotes by Bruce Schneier
#23. When there is no accountability ... there will be no accountability. - Author: Steffan Piper
Accountability quotes by Steffan Piper

Accountability quotes by Vaclav Klaus
#25. The enemy of accountability is ambiguity - Author: Patrick Lencioni
Accountability quotes by Patrick Lencioni
#26. If I could give one tip for people - it's not an exercise or nutrition regimen. It's to walk your talk and believe in yourself, because at the end of the day, the dumbbell and diet don't get you in shape. It's your accountability to your word. - Author: Brett Hoebel
Accountability quotes by Brett Hoebel
#27. Under the oppression of the devil, we will eventually reject structure and accountability. - Author: Steven B. Curington

Accountability quotes by Kenneth Langone
#34. Texas is a national leader in education reform and student achievement. Through our college- and career-ready standards and assessments, strong school accountability, and a focus on educator development, we have created an education system that prepares our students for success after graduation. - Author: Rick Perry
Accountability quotes by Rick Perry
#35. There is no time and space limitation for public accountability on the Internet. Creative commonality is standard and does not resemble the authoritarian style of the dead communist experience. It seems that it is no longer society's obligation to understand legislation; it is a duty for governments to be understood by their people. - Author: Eduardo Paes
Accountability quotes by Eduardo Paes
#36. The key is that unless there is accountability, we will never get the right system. As long as there are no consequences if kids or adults don't perform, as long as the discussion is not about education and student outcomes, then we're playing a game as to who has the power. - Author: Albert Shanker
Accountability quotes by Albert Shanker
#37. Because people who aren't good at their jobs don't want to be measured, because then they have to be accountable for something. Great employees love that kind of accountability. They crave it. Poor ones run away from it. - Author: Patrick Lencioni
Accountability quotes by Patrick Lencioni
#38. Forgiveness does not relieve someone of responsibility for what they have done. Forgiveness does not erase accountability. It is not about turning a blind eye or even turning the other cheek. It is not about letting someone off the hook or saying it is okay to do something monstrous. Forgiveness is simply about understanding that every one of us is both inherently good and inherently flawed. Within every hopeless situation and every seemingly hopeless person lies the possibility of transformation. - Author: Desmond Tutu
Accountability quotes by Desmond Tutu
#39. Freedom is not the mark of progress, responsibility is. - Author: Abhijit Naskar
Accountability quotes by Abhijit Naskar

Accountability quotes by Gary Hopkins
#41. In the old days, it had been talent and style and brilliance and now it was more and more productivity. - Author: David Halberstam
Accountability quotes by David Halberstam
#42. Sometimes people feel they need to control everything, as if they could! Matters of life and death are out of your hands. The more you come to realize this, the harder you try to prove that you can control SOMETHING, anything. All you can really control is your response to what happens. You cannot control matters of life or death and because of this you are not accountable. You cannot be held liable for anything that you have no power over. Guilt, shame and blame make no sense when circumstances are beyond your control. - Author: Kate McGahan
Accountability quotes by Kate McGahan
#43. The problem is not that we don't recognize the truth when we hear it. The problem is that we don't want to recognize what the truth might mean for us if we hear it. - Author: Craig D. Lounsbrough
Accountability quotes by Craig D. Lounsbrough
#44. Incredible how so many people have no sense of honor. How does this happen? This happens by thriving on how one appears to the world around him rather than cultivating a person inside him that he knows is honorable and that he can be proud of. When all the focus is on what people think about you based upon your facebook profile or based upon the exterior that you put on everyday; you leave no room for looking at yourself and saying, "I want to look into the mirror every day and see someone that I can be proud of." And that's what a life of honor is based upon. It is based upon the knowledge that you know your own actions, your own self, and you can see the things that you do and know the things that you think. You answer to yourself, therefore, your standards need to come up to what you expect of yourself. It doesn't matter at all if anybody is looking. When such a sense of honor is present in a large group of people, that's when we see no crime rate or a very low crime rate, respect for other human life and personas, respect for the surroundings and really a respect for oneself. Because a respect for other people can only first be born from a true respect for oneself. - Author: C. JoyBell C.
Accountability quotes by C. JoyBell C.
#45. Accountability for the largest financial institutions on Wall Street is the bedrock for a strong economy. Hard-working families and honest businesses cannot survive in a world where the rules don't keep the marketplace honest. - Author: Elizabeth Warren
Accountability quotes by Elizabeth Warren
#46. The people on Wall Street broke this country, and they did it one lousy mortgage at a time. It happened more than three years ago, and there has been no real accountability, and there has been no real effort to fix it. - Author: Elizabeth Warren
Accountability quotes by Elizabeth Warren

Accountability quotes by Monica Johnson
#48. Life is hard. Find some really good people to walk through it with. It makes things a little easier. - Author: Andrena Sawyer
Accountability quotes by Andrena Sawyer
#49. Rationally speaking, blaming one's behavior on alcohol or drugs is like blaming the ladder by which you descended into a pit, or the staircase that took you down to a cellar, for what you found there. - Author: Graham Joyce
Accountability quotes by Graham Joyce
#50. But we need to search for and find, what we need to own and perfect into a magnificent, shining thing, is a new kind of politics. Not the politics of governments, but the politics of resistance. The politics of opposition. The politics of forcing accountability. The politics of slowing things down. In the present circumstances, I'd say the only thing worth globalizing is dissent. - Author: Megan McKenna
Accountability quotes by Megan McKenna
#51. Take accountability ... Blame is the water in which many dreams and relationships drown. - Author: Steve Maraboli
Accountability quotes by Steve Maraboli
#52. The choices we make are ultimately our responsibility. - Author: Eleanor Roosevelt
Accountability quotes by Eleanor Roosevelt
#53. Rwanda is a very open and free country. Key to our recovery as a nation has a range of grassroots, citizen-centered polices we call "homegrown solutions." The idea that Rwanda is highly controlled from the center belies the reality, which is that citizens in every village have a powerful say in how things get done. We prize accountability and Rwandans are quickly adapting themselves to the possibilities of a digital economy. - Author: Paul Kagame
Accountability quotes by Paul Kagame
#54. The word accounting comes from the word accountability. If you are going to be rich, you need to be accountable for your money. - Author: Robert Kiyosaki
Accountability quotes by Robert Kiyosaki
#55. Justice delayed is not necessarily justice denied. There will come a day when God will settle accounts and people will be held responsible for the evil they've perpetrated and the suffering they've caused. Criticizing God for not doing it right now is like reading half a novel and criticizing the author for not resolving the plot. God will bring accountability at the right time - in fact, the Bible says one reason he's delaying is because some people are still following the clues and have yet to find him.15 He's actually delaying the consummation of history out of his great love for them. - Author: Lee Strobel
Accountability quotes by Lee Strobel
#56. In order to improve healthcare, we'll have to spend more on it, increase accountability and decentralize services, enforce standards and reinstate people's faith in it. - Author: N. R. Narayana Murthy
Accountability quotes by N. R. Narayana Murthy
#57. Consider the situation: Money that was provided because of social networks rather than need; a project designed for prestige rather than to be used; a lack of monitoring and accountability; and an architect appointed for show by somebody with little interest in the quality of the work. The outcome is hardly surprising: a project that should never have been built was built, and built badly. - Author: Tim Harford
Accountability quotes by Tim Harford
#58. There is no accountability today ... no willingness to focus on big ideas. - Author: Michael Bloomberg
Accountability quotes by Michael Bloomberg
#59. The promulgation of the great doctrines of religion, the being, and attributes, and providence of one Almighty God: the responsibility to him for all our actions, founded upon moral freedom and accountability; a future state of rewards and punishments; the cultivation of all the personal, social, and benevolent virtues-these these never can be a matter of indifference in any well-ordered community. It is, indeed, difficult to conceive how any civilized society can exist without them. - Author: Joseph Story
Accountability quotes by Joseph Story
#60. Developing a Culture of Accountability where people take ownership for achieving key organizational results requires a willingness to make the link between where you are and what you have done with where you want to be and what you are going to do to get there. - Author: Roger Connors
Accountability quotes by Roger Connors
#61. Let my assure you, Brethren, that some day you will have a personal Priesthood interview with the Savior, Himself. If you are interested, I will tell you the order in which He will ask you to account for your earthly responsibilities.

First, He will request an accountability report about your relationship with your wife. Have you actively been engaged in making her happy and ensuring that her needs have been met as an individual?

Second, He will want an accountability report about each of your children individually. He will not attempt to have this for simply a family stewardship but will request information about your relationship to each and every child.

Third, He will want to know what you personally have done with the talents you were given in the pre-existence.

Fourth, He will want a summary of your activity in your church assignments. He will not be necessarily interested in what assignments you have had, for in his eyes the home teacher and a mission president are probably equals, but He will request a summary of how you have been of service to your fellowmen in your Church assignments.

Fifth, He will have no interest in how you earned your living, but if you were honest in all your dealings.

Sixth, He will ask for an accountability on what you have done to contribute in a positive manner to your community, state, country, and the world. - Author: David O. McKay
Accountability quotes by David O. McKay
#62. As frustrating as the battle for purity must be, I suppose it's easier if you've got company. - Author: Kevin Roose
Accountability quotes by Kevin Roose
#63. If I know the way home and am walking along it drunkenly, is it any less the right way because I am staggering from side to side! - Author: Leo Tolstoy
Accountability quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#64. No Child Left Behind taught us that parents, teachers and state and local leaders are more suited to address students' needs than a one-size-fits-all accountability system developed by Washington bureaucrats. - Author: John Kline
Accountability quotes by John Kline
#65. Accountability is not a consequence. In order for it to become your competitive advantage, you must be willing to change what you expect from yourself and others. - Author: Sam Silverstein
Accountability quotes by Sam Silverstein
#66. Sometimes to take two steps in a row, one after the other, I need to make a contract with myself. - Author: Erri De Luca
Accountability quotes by Erri De Luca
#67. Accountability means to say what you do, do what you say. - Author: Pearl Zhu
Accountability quotes by Pearl Zhu
#68. Now where people are - at least the people I talk to - they are focused on issues of trust. Accountability also comes up, to make sure that this doesn't happen again. - Author: William P. Leahy
Accountability quotes by William P. Leahy
#69. I have to trust people. There's no system of controls that can replace trust, so I need to reinforce that trust, and part of reinforcing trust is making sure that people feel accountability, and with accountability comes some degree of autonomy. You don't have one without the other. - Author: Harry West
Accountability quotes by Harry West
#70. A sense of responsibility in teaching pushes us constantly to think about and promote the best interests of our students. In contrast, the demand for accountability often induces mere compliance. - Author: Nel Noddings
Accountability quotes by Nel Noddings
#71. A colleague like Barnabas could comfort him (Paul) in illness and keep him from overstrain when fit. - Author: John Charles Pollock
Accountability quotes by John Charles Pollock
#72. On issue after issue, the polls - and these are not snapshot polls; these are polls over a consistent period of time - show that most Americans share what one could call core liberal or progressive values: investment in health care and education over tax cuts; fair trade over free trade; corporate accountability over deregulation; environmental protection over laissez-faire policies; defending Social Security and Medicare over privatizing them; raising the minimum wage over eliminating it. The country prefers progressive alternatives to the failed policies of the conservative right. - Author: Katrina Vanden Heuvel
Accountability quotes by Katrina Vanden Heuvel
#73. FORGIVE FAILURE. The corollary to accountability is forgiveness. Things go wrong all the time in relationships, and the healthiest ones move on from them, leaving behind grudges and blame. This is not to say that failure is accepted; rather, that it is acknowledged and understood. - Author: Charlene Li
Accountability quotes by Charlene Li
#74. If we are now holding late-night talk-show hosts to the same moral accountability as we hold politicians or clergymen, I'm out. I'm gone. - Author: Craig Ferguson
Accountability quotes by Craig Ferguson
#75. Free trade has been proven, time and again, as a reliable path to economic development. It pushes the public and private sectors alike toward greater accountability and transparency. It lifts people out of poverty, and while it can force unsettling changes on a society, those changes prove to be worthwhile in a very short time. - Author: Jonah Goldberg
Accountability quotes by Jonah Goldberg
#76. I got an accountability partner to call me everyday just to make sure I publish something. Accountability works because it adds social pressure to otherwise self-directed work. - Author: Mike Fishbein
Accountability quotes by Mike Fishbein
#77. Generally speaking, the key dimensions of corporate governance are strategy oversight, policy making, accountability, and monitoring. - Author: Pearl Zhu
Accountability quotes by Pearl Zhu
#78. Track accountability is the best way to describe it. You're looking to see which dog accounts for the most tracks in the smoothest manner. - Author: Edward Higgins White
Accountability quotes by Edward Higgins White
#79. Caring for others is not a warm, fuzzy feeling. A caring state requires exceptional professionalism, strong systems and accountability. This - Author: Helen Zille
Accountability quotes by Helen Zille
#80. Our government has become incompetent, unresponsive, corrupt. And that incompetence, ineptitude, lack of accountability is now dangerous. - Author: Carly Fiorina
Accountability quotes by Carly Fiorina
#81. Democracy must be built through open societies that share information. When there is information, there is enlightenment. When there is debate, there are solutions. When there is no sharing of power, no rule of law, no accountability, there is abuse, corruption, subjugation and indignation. - Author: Atifete Jahjaga
Accountability quotes by Atifete Jahjaga
#82. You can present the material, but you can't make me care. - Author: Bill Watterson
Accountability quotes by Bill Watterson
#83. Grace does not cancel out our responsibility or accountability for the things God has given us to do. - Author: Mike Bickle
Accountability quotes by Mike Bickle
#84. But they don't fully appreciate the convenience of it in their lives," Professor Cain argued.
"Because it's not a convenience to them," I shot back, growing stronger. "It's their normal, because their frame of reference is different than yours was growing up. And we'll say it's a convenience when our children have things we didn't. But again, that won't be a convenience to them, either. It will be their normal."
"And furthermore," I went on, "this discussion isn't useful, because it won't change anything. You're angry, because your generation has given mine advances in technology and then blame us for the altered reality? Where's the accountability? - Author: Penelope Douglas
Accountability quotes by Penelope Douglas
#85. Always move forward. Every problem you encounter is an opportunity for you to prove that you are Batman in a business suit. When shit goes down and the sheep freeze up, you need to answer the call and start throwing haymakers. Batman doesn't do damage control. Batman does damage. If you drop me down a well, I won't waste energy crying "Why?" like Nancy Kerrigan after taking a nightstick to the knee. I will tunnel out of there like my grandparents did when they were escaping the Nazis. Eventually there will be a time for reflection, accountability, and divine retribution, but not until you get out of that goddamn hole. - Author: Ari Gold
Accountability quotes by Ari Gold
#86. The fight against child slavery is the fight against traditional mindset, policy deficit, and lack of accountability and urgency for children across the globe. - Author: Kailash Satyarthi
Accountability quotes by Kailash Satyarthi
#87. Leaders who fail to appreciate this fundamental precept of accountability must also fail to muster the profound commitment true leadership demands. - Author: Peter Cosgrove
Accountability quotes by Peter Cosgrove
#88. Whether or not you believe in God, you must believe this: when we as a species abandon our trust in a power greater than us, we abandon our sense of accountability. Faiths ... all faiths ... are admonitions that there is something we cannot understand, something to which we are accountable. With faith we are accountable to each other, to ourselves, and to a higher truth. Religion is flawed, but only because man is flawed. The church consists of a brotherhood of imperfect, simple souls wanting only to be a voice of compassion in a world spinning out of control. - Author: Dan Brown
Accountability quotes by Dan Brown
#89. The plain, unvarnished truth is that public education is a shoddy, fraudulent piece of goods sold t to the public at an astronomical price. It's time the American consumer knew the extent of the fraud which is victimizing millions of children each year. - Author: Samuel Blumenfeld
Accountability quotes by Samuel Blumenfeld
#90. When I was at the CIA I asked my civilian advisory board to tackle some tough questions. Among the toughest: In a political culture that every day demands more transparency and more public accountability from every aspect of national life, could American intelligence continue to survive and succeed? That jury is still out. - Author: Michael Hayden
Accountability quotes by Michael Hayden

Accountability quotes by Mary Robinson
#92. As we pursue our strategies world-wide, we accept a social and environmental responsibility as well. These responsibilities include the promotion of a sustainable economy and recognition of the accountability we have to the economies, environments, and communities where we do business around the world. - Author: John F. Smith, Jr.
Accountability quotes by John F. Smith, Jr.
#93. In The Theory of the Moral Sentiments, Smith emphasized that trust, responsibility and accountability exist only in a society that respects them, and only where the spontaneous fruit of human sympathy is allowed to ripen. It is where sympathy, duty and virtue achieve their proper place that self-interest leads, by an invisible hand, to a result that benefits everyone. And this means that people can best satisfy their interests only in a context where they are also on occasion moved to renounce them. Beneath every society where self-interest pays off, lies a foundation of self-sacrifice. - Author: Roger Scruton
Accountability quotes by Roger Scruton
#94. After the 11 September attack," March editorializes one morning, "amid all that chaos and confusion, a hole quietly opened up in American history, a vacuum of accountability, into which assets human and financial begin to vanish. Back in the days of hippie simplicity, people liked to blame 'the CIA' or 'a secret rogue operation.' But this is a new enemy, unnamable, locatable on no organization chart or budget line
who knows, maybe even the CIA's scared of them. - Author: Thomas Pynchon
Accountability quotes by Thomas Pynchon
#95. We must aim for a zero-tolerance approach to hospital-acquired infections; we have to be clear about who's in charge at ward level, so there's proper accountability, and we need to reduce the reliance on agency nursing staff. - Author: Andrew Lansley
Accountability quotes by Andrew Lansley
#96. You can't talk about leadership without talking about responsibility and accountability ... you can't separate the two. A leader must delegate responsibility and provide the freedom to make decisions, and then be held accountable for the results. - Author: Buck Rodgers
Accountability quotes by Buck Rodgers
#97. I think we should all be accountable to our parties, but I also think that accountability should be a process of engagement: that MPs do engage with their constituency parties, do engage with their constituents, and MPs do change their minds on things because of local opinion. - Author: Jeremy Corbyn
Accountability quotes by Jeremy Corbyn
#98. A policy of 'naming and shaming' is ineffective if everyone has been named and shamed. - Author: John Kay
Accountability quotes by John Kay
#99. We just have to have visibility. We have to have acknowledgement. We have to have accountability to how we treat one another. - Author: Zachary Quinto
Accountability quotes by Zachary Quinto
#100. Faith can cut in so many ways. If you're penitent and not triumphal, it can move us to repentance and accountability and help us reach for something higher than ourselves. That can be a powerful thing, a thing that moves us beyond politics as usual, like Martin Luther King did. But when it's designed to certify our righteousness - that can be a dangerous thing. Then it pushes self criticism aside. There's no reflection. - Author: Jim Wallis
Accountability quotes by Jim Wallis
#101. Honesty, integrity, and accountability, the values, which should be the hallmark of this government, have instead been thrown under the bus by an arrogant majority, casualties in a misguided campaign to shield from accountability those who abuse this House. - Author: Louise Slaughter
Accountability quotes by Louise Slaughter

Accountability quotes by John Kasich
#103. There is no ownership. There is only stewardship. - Author: LeeAnn Taylor
Accountability quotes by LeeAnn Taylor
#104. Dating is probably the most fraught human interaction there is. You're sizing people up to see if they're worth your time and attention, and they're doing the same to you. It's meritocracy applied to personal life, but there's no accountability. We submit ourselves to these intimate inspections and simultaneously inflict them on others and try to keep our psyches intact - to keep from becoming cold and callous - and we hope that at the end of it we wind up happier than our grandparents, who didn't spend this vast period of their lives, these prime years, so thoroughly alone, coldly and explicitly anatomized again and again. - Author: Adelle Waldman
Accountability quotes by Adelle Waldman
#105. Performance standards and accountability applied to everyone. - Author: Gary J. Byrne
Accountability quotes by Gary J. Byrne
#106. In an organizational culture where respect and the dignity of individuals are held as the highest values, shame and blame don't work as management styles. There is no leading by fear. Empathy is a valued asset, accountability is an expectation rather than an exception, and the primal human need for belonging is not used as leverage and social control. We can't control the behavior of individuals; however, we can cultivate organizational cultures where behaviors are not tolerated and people are held accountable for protecting what matters most: human beings. We - Author: Brene Brown
Accountability quotes by Brene Brown
#107. Open collaboration encourages greater accountability, which in turn fosters trust. - Author: Ron Garan
Accountability quotes by Ron Garan
#108. At the end of this journey, it seems to me that reconciling the long shadows cast by the uneasy past may ultimately depend on elements so basic that they bring to mind a simple Slav proverb I once came across and never forgot: Eat bread and salt and speak the truth. They are the recovery of fact, public accountability and the instituting of fair trials of one sort or another, to help mark ends and beginnings and to return the moral compass as close to the centre as possible. - Author: Erna Paris

#109. The next shooting will come. And when it does, we will do absolutely everything within our power to avoid addressing the real issue. And the only answer that I have for an insanity of this magnitude is that we are infinitely more committed to building a culture that feeds our greed than constructing a culture that rests in God. - Author: Craig D. Lounsbrough

#114. Whatever your storybook carries within its pages, own it with love, courage and compassion. Remember that you can change your story at any time- nothing is fixed and we all have free will. We should not seek to love someone else's journey more than we love our own; the swords of comparison are sharp and cutting to our soul and innermost values. We are all designed unique with our own original paths to walk through; we lose momentum and our natural impulses for creativity and progression when we focus our energy on other people. - Author: Christine Evangelou

#116. There's been a lot of talk about body cameras as a silver bullet or a solution. I think the task force concluded that there is a role for technology to play in building additional trust and accountability, but it's not a panacea, it has to be embedded in a broader change in culture and a legal framework that ensures that people's privacy is respected and that not only police officers but the community themselves feel comfortable with how technologies are being used. - Author: Barack Obama

#127. It is depressing to have to point out, yet again, that there is a distinction between having the legal right to say something & having the moral right not to be held accountable for what you say. Being asked to apologise for saying something unconscionable is not the same as being stripped of the legal right to say it. It's really not very f-cking complicated. Cry "free speech" in such contexts, you are demanding the right to speak any bilge you wish without apology or fear of comeback. You are demanding not legal rights but an end to debate about and criticism of what you say. When did bigotry get so needy? - Author: China Mieville

In an age of widespread communication and accountability, people expect political participation and accountability much more than they did in the eighteenth, nineteenth, and early twentieth centuries. The only way the demand for meaningful political participation and choice can be suppressed is to constrain liberty - Larry Diamond, Developing Democracy: Toward Consolidation (Baltimore: Johns Hopkins University Press, 1999), Chapter 1 ('Defining and Developing Democracy'). p. 4 - Author: Larry Diamond

#136. The kind of capitalism we are seeing today under this expansion of property into living resources is a whole, new, different phase of capitalism. It is totally inconsistent with democracy as well as with sustainability. What we have is capital working on a global scale, totally uprooted, with accountability nowhere, with responsibility nowhere, and with rights everywhere. This new capital, with absolute freedom and no accountability, is structurally anti-life, anti-freedom. - Author: Vandana Shiva

#139. Watch out for these two kind of fears: the fear of God that gives courage and wisdom to overcome the fears in the world and to accomplish your God given mission distinctively, and the fear of the world that gives you excuses and hinders you from fulfilling your God given vision. No matter what, you shall give an account of your stewardship to God Almighty. There is no day like a day to do something in the day, for each day, you get closer to the journey's end! Feel the urgency to do something as long as you meet a new day! Have a true passion for living to accomplish your true mission! Step out each day like a wounded lion; noble, but not timid; meek, but not weak; courageous, but not proud; wise, but with understanding, and be determined to overcome all obstacles with an unstoppable mindset and wisdom, knowing that God is waiting for you at your journey's end to print the statement of how you took the journey to you. - Author: Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

Accountability quotes by Christine Lagarde
#141. Not in order to justify, but simply in order to explain my lack of consistency, I say: Look at my present life and then at my former life, and you will see that I do attempt to carry them out. It is true that I have not fulfilled one thousandth part of them [Christian precepts], and I am ashamed of this, but I have failed to fulfill them not because I did not wish to, but because I was unable to. Teach me how to escape from the net of temptations that surrounds me, help me and I will fulfill them; even without help I wish and hope to fulfill them.

Attack me, I do this myself, but attack me rather than the path I follow and which I point out to anyone who asks me where I think it lies. If I know the way home and am walking along it drunkenly, is it any less the right way because I am staggering from side to side! If it is not the right way, then show me another way; but if I stagger and lose the way, you must help me, you must keep me on the true path, just as I am ready to support you. Do not mislead me, do not be glad that I have got lost, do not shout out joyfully: "Look at him! He said he was going home, but there he is crawling into a bog!" No, do not gloat, but give me your help and support. - Author: Leo Tolstoy
Accountability quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#142. A desacramentalized view of time tends to place the entire burden of doctrinal decision on the present moment: I, in the small moment of time allotted to me, am responsible to make the right theological (and moral) choice before God. The imposition of such a burden is so huge as to be pastorally disastrous. Furthermore, to the extent that as Christians we are captive to our secular Western culture, it is likely that this secular culture will get to set the church's agenda. If we do not see ourselves sacramentally connected to the tradition (and thus to Christ), we sense no accountability to tradition, and we are likely to accommodate whatever demands our culture places on us and capitulate to them. By contrast, when we are faced with a theological and moral conundrum, a participatory approach to tradition will always ask how the catholic, or universal, church throughout time and place has dealt with the issue. The widespread assumption that Christian beliefs and morals are to a significant degree malleable has its roots in a modern desacralized view of time. - Author: Hans Boersma

#170. One problem with test-based accountability, as currently defined and used, is that it removes all responsibility from students and their families for the students' academic performance.

#172. In order to escape accountability for his crimes, the perpetrator does everything in his power to promote forgetting. Secrecy and silence are the perpetrator's first line of defense. If secrecy fails, the perpetrator attacks the credibility of his victim. If he cannot silence her absolutely, he tries to make sure that no one listens. To this end, he marshals an impressive array of arguments, from the most blatant denial to the most sophisticated and elegant rationalization. After every atrocity one can expect to hear the same predictable apologies: it never happened; the victim lies; the victim exaggerates; the victim brought it upon herself; and in any case it is time to forget the past and move on. The more powerful the perpetrator, the greater is his prerogative to name and define reality, and the more completely his arguments prevail.

#174. We all cultivated critique--we were dogmatic in our alliances, self-righteous in our beliefs. But the broader Mission dyke culture we called queer, so much of it was about loyalty at any cost. Loyalty could mean safety but it could also mean reenacting high school popularity contests and taking on the victors' roles. High school was only a few years in the past for most of us, even if we might have been scandalized if anyone had mentioned that. Accountability only occurred when people would get in dramatic fights, and it was more about whose team was stronger or more popular than about what actually happened. - Author: Mattilda Bernstein Sycamore

Accountability quotes by Loretta Malandro
#200. Ironically, for peer-to-peer accountability to become a part of a team's culture, it has to be modeled by the leader. That's right. Even though I said earlier that the best kind of accountability is peer-to-peer, the key to making it stick is the willingness of the team leader to do something I call "enter the danger" whenever someone needs to be called on their behavior or performance. That means being willing to step right into the middle of a difficult issue and remind individual team members of their responsibility, both in terms of behavior and results. But most leaders I know have a far easier time holding people accountable for their results than they do for behavioral issues. This is a problem because behavioral problems almost always precede results. That means team members have to be willing to call each other on behavioral issues, as uncomfortable as that might be, and if they see their leader balk at doing this, then they aren't going to do it themselves. - Author: Patrick Lencioni
Accountability quotes by Patrick Lencioni
