I am not prepared to accept the economics of a housewife. ~ Jacques Chirac
Chirac Jacques quotes by Jacques Chirac
The authority and influence of France on the world scene in the 21st century will not depend solely on its modernity and cohesion, nor even on the continuity and professionalism of its foreign policy. France will be heeded if it has a message to convey. Faced with the temptations of laissez-faire, France must stand out as the nation with the imagination and determination to pursue an ambition that combines cogency with generosity. ~ Jacques Chirac
Chirac Jacques quotes by Jacques Chirac
Franco-American relations have been, and always will be, both conflictual and excellent. The U.S. finds France unbearable with its pretensions; we find the U.S. unbearable with its hegenomism. But deep down, we remember that the 'boys' - came to help us two times, just as the Americans remember that the French helped them with their independence. So there will be sparks but no fire, because a real bond exists. ~ Jacques Chirac
Chirac Jacques quotes by Jacques Chirac
What is at stake is how to answer the potential threat Iraq represents with the risk of proliferation of WMD. Baghdad's regime did use such weapons in the past. Today, a number of evidences may lead to think that, over the past four years, in the absence of international inspectors, this country has continued armament programs. ~ Jacques Chirac
Chirac Jacques quotes by Jacques Chirac
The Kyoto Protocol ... the first component of an authentic global governance ... ~ Jacques Chirac
Chirac Jacques quotes by Jacques Chirac
Never before has information been so important, to governments and businesses alike. And please don't imagine that some of you gathered here today may be less concerned than others. Globalization means that the "butterfly effect" is everywhere at work. The mistakes of a stockbroker in Singapore or the collapse of the Baht in Bangkok, the decisions of a Finnish industrial concern, or what the Governor of Minas Gerais in Brazil decides to do about his State's debt, have had consequences for the world as a whole. ~ Jacques Chirac
Chirac Jacques quotes by Jacques Chirac
If our language, our programs, our creations are not strongly present in the new media, the young generation of our country will be economically and culturally marginalized. ~ Jacques Chirac
Chirac Jacques quotes by Jacques Chirac
One can go to war alone, but you can't build peace alone. ~ Jacques Chirac
Chirac Jacques quotes by Jacques Chirac
National Missile Defense is of a nature to retrigger a proliferation of weapons, notably nuclear missiles. Everything that goes in the direction of proliferation is a bad direction. ~ Jacques Chirac
Chirac Jacques quotes by Jacques Chirac
I never like to say that I 'believe' anything. There are no ideas worth believing. ~ Jacques Chirac
Chirac Jacques quotes by Jacques Chirac
It is with enormous distress that France has just learned of the monstrous attacks there is no other word for it that have just struck the United States of America. In these horrifying circumstances, the entire people of France, and I want to emphasize this, stand by the people of America. They express their friendship and solidarity in this tragedy. Naturally, I want to assure President Bush of my total support. France, as you know, has always condemned and unreservedly condemns terrorism, and considers that terrorism must be combated by all possible means. ~ Jacques Chirac
Chirac Jacques quotes by Jacques Chirac
Faced with intolerance and hatred, no debate is possible. ~ Jacques Chirac
Chirac Jacques quotes by Jacques Chirac
No one can act alone in the name of all and no one can accept the anarchy of a society without rules. ~ Jacques Chirac
Chirac Jacques quotes by Jacques Chirac
Isolated and limited vision problem. ~ Jacques Chirac
Chirac Jacques quotes by Jacques Chirac
Our house is burning and we look elsewhere. Nature, mutilated and over-exploited, can no longer reconstitute itself and we refuse to admit it. Humanity is suffering. It is suffering from poor development, in the North as in the South, and we are indifferent. The Earth and humanity are in peril and we are all responsible. It is time now to open our eyes ~ Jacques Chirac
Chirac Jacques quotes by Jacques Chirac
Romania and Bulgaria were particularly irresponsible. If they wanted to diminish their chances of joining Europe they could not have found a better way. ~ Jacques Chirac
Chirac Jacques quotes by Jacques Chirac
Our two peoples have stood shoulder-to-shoulder in the brotherhood of blood spilled. ~ Jacques Chirac
Chirac Jacques quotes by Jacques Chirac
One does not export democracy in an armored vehicle. ~ Jacques Chirac
Chirac Jacques quotes by Jacques Chirac
For the first time, humanity is instituting a genuine instrument Kyoto Protocol of global governance," ... "By acting together, by building this unprecedented instrument, the first component of an authentic global governance, we are working for dialogue and peace. ~ Jacques Chirac
Chirac Jacques quotes by Jacques Chirac
Terrorism has become the systematic weapon of a war that knows no borders or seldom has a face. ~ Jacques Chirac
Chirac Jacques quotes by Jacques Chirac
The construction of Europe is an art. It is the art of the possible. ~ Jacques Chirac
Chirac Jacques quotes by Jacques Chirac
As far as I'm concerned, war always means failure. ~ Jacques Chirac
Chirac Jacques quotes by Jacques Chirac
I am logically in favour of a referendum. It would be the only legitimate way. ~ Jacques Chirac
Chirac Jacques quotes by Jacques Chirac
As far as France is concerned, we are ready to envisage everything that can be done under UNSCR 1441. [ ... ] But I repeat that every possibility offered by the present resolution must be explored, that there are a lot of them and they still leave us with a lot of leeway when it comes to ways of achieving the objective of eliminating any weapons of mass destruction which may exist in Iraq. I'd like nevertheless to note that, as things stand at the moment, I have, to my knowledge, no indisputable proof in this sphere. ~ Jacques Chirac
Chirac Jacques quotes by Jacques Chirac
As soon as one nation claims the right to take preventive action, other countries will naturally do the same. If we go down that road, where are we going? ~ Jacques Chirac
Chirac Jacques quotes by Jacques Chirac
Terrorism takes us back to ages we thought were long gone if we allow it a free hand to corrupt democratic societies and destroy the basic rules of international life. ~ Jacques Chirac
Chirac Jacques quotes by Jacques Chirac
Fate chooses your relations,
you choose your friends. ~ Jacques Delille
Chirac Jacques quotes by Jacques Delille
And an apprenticeship to whatever gadgetry is useful in a technical world ~ Jacques Ellul
Chirac Jacques quotes by Jacques Ellul
Liberty is obedience to the law which one has laid down for oneself ~ Jean-Jacques Rousseau
Chirac Jacques quotes by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
There are two things to be aware of if the fight against evil inclinations is to have any chance of success. First, our efforts will never be sufficient on their own. Only the grace of Christ can win us the victory. Therefore our chief weapons are prayer, patience, and hope. Second, one passion can only be cured by another - a misplaced love by a greater love, wrong behavior by right behavior that makes provisions for the desire underlying the wrongdoing, recognizes the conscious or unconscious needs that seek fulfillment and either offers them legitimate satisfaction or transfers them to something compatible with the person's calling. ~ Jacques Philippe
Chirac Jacques quotes by Jacques Philippe
The body politic, as well as the human body, begins to die as soon as it is born, and carries itself the causes of its destruction. ~ Jean-Jacques Rousseau
Chirac Jacques quotes by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
[When under stress I thought of] the books I had read [and applied] them to myself. I [imagined I was] one of the characters [and soon found myself] in made-up circumstances which were most agreeable to my inclinations. ~ Jean-Jacques Rousseau
Chirac Jacques quotes by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
Honor is like the eye, which cannot suffer the least impurity without damage. It is a precious stone, the price of which is lessened by a single flaw. ~ Jacques-Benigne Bossuet
Chirac Jacques quotes by Jacques-Benigne Bossuet
Nothing is less in our power than the heart, and far from commanding we are forced to obey it. ~ Jean-Jacques Rousseau
Chirac Jacques quotes by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
Another characteristic of God's Spirit is that, while enlightening us and impelling us to act, he imprints our souls with a deep sense of humility. He makes us do good in such a way that we are happy to do it, but without any presumptuousness, self-satisfaction, or vanity. We see quite clearly that the good that we do does not come from ourselves but from God. ~ Jacques Philippe
Chirac Jacques quotes by Jacques Philippe
I declare the 20th Winter Games closed. I call upon the youth of the world to assemble four years from now in Vancouver, to celebrate the 21st Olympic Winter Games. ~ Jacques Rogge
Chirac Jacques quotes by Jacques Rogge
Better beware of the newly dead

Of the white-handed ghost

And the brightness of these lamps . . .

wrote Luc Berimont in 1940, in Reign of Darkness.

I've always felt the greatest reluctance to go anywhere near, to touch, a fresh corpse. For me, it's an unseemly thing. Useless. Hostile. Cunning. Dangerous. The 'presence' is much stronger, more perceptible one hour after death than one hour before. By my observation, this was not the case with Heisserer.

He was entirely absent from his head, his hands,his quivering body. He was gone instantly, unburdened of his absurd life, released. ~ Jacques Yonnet
Chirac Jacques quotes by Jacques Yonnet
The following afternoon, Rizq returned to our chambers. I was curious to find out how his experiment went (his foursome with Caroline, Gaston and Jacques). "Hi Rizq. It is good to see you; how did it go with your four-way?" Rizq looked at the floor, searching for words to describe his experience. "I found it hard to concentrate, as there were all these hands caressing me and everything happening all at once. I lost my concentration. Although I enjoyed the various interactions, I prefer to stick to one-on-one. "I did enjoy being inside Caroline with Gaston in me, from behind. This was very stimulating." I replied, "At least you tried and you can now best decide your preference." Andy asked, "Now, Rizq are you ready to be shaven?" "Yes, I am. ~ Young
Chirac Jacques quotes by Young
Propaganda ceases where simple dialogue begins. ~ Jacques Ellul
Chirac Jacques quotes by Jacques Ellul
One thing, however, is sure: unless Christians fulfill their prophetic role, unless they become the advocates and defenders of the truly poor, witness to their misery, then, infallibly, violence will suddenly break out. In one way or another 'their blood cries to heaven,' and violence will seem the only way out. It will be too late to try to calm them and create harmony. ~ Jacques Ellul
Chirac Jacques quotes by Jacques Ellul
It was with the Industrial Revolution, as society plunged ever more eagerly into the conquest of material riches and bent all its energies to the accumulation of goods, that material poverty became a major problem. Obviously, this meant abandonment or downgrading of spiritual values, virtue, etc. To share or not to share in the increase of the collective wealth-this was the Number One question. It was the desire to acquire wealth that prompted the poor to start fighting. ~ Jacques Ellul
Chirac Jacques quotes by Jacques Ellul
When in doubt, choose kindness. ~ Sue Jacques
Chirac Jacques quotes by Sue Jacques
That philosophy died yesterday, since Hegel or Marx, Nietzsche, or Heidegger - and philosophy should still wander toward the meaning of its death - or that it has always lived knowing itself to be dying ... that philosophy died one day, within history, or that it has always fed on its own agony, on the violent way it opens history by opposing itself to nonphilosophy, which is its past and its concern, its death and wellspring; that beyond the death, or dying nature, of philosophy, perhaps even because of it, thought still has a future, or even, as is said today, is still entirely to come because of what philosophy has held in store; or, more strangely still, that the future itself has a future - all these are unanswerable questions. By right of birth, and for one time at least, these are problems put to philosophy as problems philosophy cannot resolve. ~ Jacques Derrida
Chirac Jacques quotes by Jacques Derrida
What conclusion is to be drawn from this paradox so worthy of being born in our time; and what will become of virtue when one has to get rich at all cost?
The ancient political thinkers forever spoke of morals and of virtue; ours speak only of commerce and money. ~ Jean-Jacques Rousseau
Chirac Jacques quotes by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
God is intelligent; but in what manner? Man is intelligent by the act of reasoning, but the supreme intelligence lies under no necessity to reason. He requires neither premise nor consequences; nor even the simple form of a proposition. His knowledge is purely intuitive. He beholds equally what is and what will be. All truths are to Him as one idea, as all places are but one point, and all times one moment. ~ Jean-Jacques Rousseau
Chirac Jacques quotes by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
I have suffered too much in this world not to hope for another. ~ Jean-Jacques Rousseau
Chirac Jacques quotes by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
Art and poetry cannot do without one another. Yet the two words are far from being synonymous. By Art I mean the creative or producing, work-making activity of the human mind. By Poetry I mean, not the particular art which consists in writing verses, but a process both more general and more primary: that intercommunication between the inner being of things and the inner being of the human Self which is a kind of divination (as was realized in ancient times; the Latin vates was both a poet and a diviner). Poetry, in this sense, is the secret life of each and all of the arts. ~ Jacques Maritain
Chirac Jacques quotes by Jacques Maritain
When the sun sets like fire, I will think of you, when the moon casts its light, I'll remember, too, if a soft rain falls gently, I'll stand in this place, recalling the last time, I saw your kind face. Good fortune go with you, to your journey's end, let the waters run calmly, for you, my dear friend. ~ Brian Jacques
Chirac Jacques quotes by Brian Jacques
Cubism is like standing at a certain point on a mountain and looking around. If you go higher, things will look different; if you go lower, again they will look different. It is a point of view. ~ Jacques Lipchitz
Chirac Jacques quotes by Jacques Lipchitz
For me, there was no great myth around the movies when I was a young child. My father was very simple about the whole thing. He did not consider cinema an art. Cinema was entertainment. Literature and music were art. ~ Jacques Audiard
Chirac Jacques quotes by Jacques Audiard
Lastly, say to me, if you can, with feelings as tender as mine for you: my dear Beelzebub, I adore you... ~ Jacques Cazotte
Chirac Jacques quotes by Jacques Cazotte
So long as government and law provide for the security and well-being of men in their common life, the arts, literature and the sciences, less despotic though perhaps more powerful, fling garlands of flowers over the chains which weight them down. They stifle in men's breasts that sense of original liberty, for which they seem to have been born; cause them to love their own slavery, and so make of them what is called a civilized people. ~ Jean-Jacques Rousseau
Chirac Jacques quotes by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
As soon as we cease to believe in such an engineer and in a discourse which breaks with the received historical discourse, and as soon as we admit that every finite discourse is bound by a certain bricolage and that the engineer and the scientist are also species of bricoleurs, then the very idea of bricolage is menaced and the difference in which it took on its meaning breaks down. ~ Jacques Derrida
Chirac Jacques quotes by Jacques Derrida
Journalistic content is a technical complex expressly intended to adapt man to the machine. ~ Jacques Ellul
Chirac Jacques quotes by Jacques Ellul
To talk about photos rather than making them seems idiotic to me. It's as though I went on and on about a woman I adored instead of making love to her. ~ Jacques-Henri Lartigue
Chirac Jacques quotes by Jacques-Henri Lartigue
The best way to observe a fish is to become a fish. ~ Jacques-Yves Cousteau
Chirac Jacques quotes by Jacques-Yves Cousteau
Farming as we do it is hunting, and in the sea we act like barbarians. ~ Jacques-Yves Cousteau
Chirac Jacques quotes by Jacques-Yves Cousteau
a couple of our buddies from Le Pavilion had opened restaurants in the Catskills around Shan-daken and Hunter Mountain and spoke highly of the area, so Jean-Claude and I, along with a few other friends, rented a place there to use as a weekend retreat. ~ Jacques Pepin
Chirac Jacques quotes by Jacques Pepin
When President Chirac gave [President] Bush a souvenir statue of the Eiffel Tower ... Bush said 'This is great! A little oil rig!' ~ Jay Leno
Chirac Jacques quotes by Jay Leno
The eager or dutiful persons who subject themselves to these tidal waves of the classics and the moderns find everything wonderful in an absent-minded way. The wonder washes over them rather than into them, and one of its effects is to make anything shocking or odd suddenly interesting enough to gain a month's celebrity. And so another by-product of our come-one, come-all policy is the tendency to reward cleverness, not art, and to put one more hurdle in the path of the truly original artist. ~ Jacques Barzun
Chirac Jacques quotes by Jacques Barzun
And of the fact that every vision of the past is a vision of the blind ~ Jacques Roubaud
Chirac Jacques quotes by Jacques Roubaud
Love is giving something you don't have to someone who doesn't want it. ~ Jacques Lacan
Chirac Jacques quotes by Jacques Lacan
With regard to equality, this word must not be understood to mean that degress of power and wealth should be exactly the same, but rather that with regard to power, it should be incapable of all violence and never exerted except by virtue of status and the laws; and with regard to wealth, no citizen should be so opulent that he can buy another, and none so poor that he is constrained to sell himself. ~ Jean-Jacques Rousseau
Chirac Jacques quotes by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
Knowledge is a thing that one cannot have enough of. It is the fruit of wisdom, to be eaten carefully and digested fully, unlike that lunch you are bolting down, little friend. ~ Brian Jacques
Chirac Jacques quotes by Brian Jacques
Think of brilliant trickster Vik Muniz as the offspring of Man Ray and Jacques Henri Lartigue, combining the former's relentless experimentation, the latter's effortless wit, and their mutual inventiveness in work that defies category. ~ Vince Aletti
Chirac Jacques quotes by Vince Aletti
I was playing when I invented the aqualung. I think play is the most serious thing in the world. ~ Jacques-Yves Cousteau
Chirac Jacques quotes by Jacques-Yves Cousteau
The road to the future leads us smack into the wall. We simply ricochet off the alternatives that destiny offers. Our survival is no more than a question of 25, 50 or perhaps 100 years. ~ Jacques-Yves Cousteau
Chirac Jacques quotes by Jacques-Yves Cousteau
Since science's competence extends to observable and measurable phenomena, not to the inner being of things, and to the means, not to the ends of human life, it would be nonsense to expect that the progress of science will provide men with a new type of metaphysics, ethics, or religion. ~ Jacques Maritain
Chirac Jacques quotes by Jacques Maritain
How would you like it if, at your job, every time you made the slightest mistake a little red light went on over your head and 18,000 people stood up and screamed at you? ~ Jacques Plante
Chirac Jacques quotes by Jacques Plante
Pharmakon means drug, but as Jacques Derrida and others have pointed out, the word in Greek famously refuses to designate whether poison or cure. It holds both in the bowl. ~ Maggie Nelson
Chirac Jacques quotes by Maggie Nelson
There are no boundaries in the real Planet Earth. No United States, no Soviet Union, no China, no Taiwan ... Rivers flow unimpeded across the swaths of continents. The persistent tides - the pulse of the sea - do not discriminate; they push against all the varied shores on Earth. ~ Jacques-Yves Cousteau
Chirac Jacques quotes by Jacques-Yves Cousteau
