Ganaderos De America quotes by Alexis De Tocqueville
#2. inequality and commitment to its end alongside almost total lack of awareness of the meanings of whiteness-and it is, it is one that many whites live with every day, with no discomfort.
It was only when I stopped being white, in some sense, that I began to understand what whiteness means in America. Under South African apartheid, the white partner of a black person was reclassified as "colored": legally, in other words, there was no such thing as a white/black marriage. Although we do not live under apartheid, a de facto reclassification happens here, too, I - Author: Maureen T. Reddy
Ganaderos De America quotes by Maureen T. Reddy
#3. In the United States in 1907, a book entitled Three Acres and Liberty seized the imagination of the reading public. The author, Bolton Hall, began by taking for granted the awkwardness of having to work for someone else, and so advised his readers that they could win their freedom by leaving their offices and factories and buying three acres apiece of inexpensive farmland in middle America. This acreage would soon enable them to grow enough food for a family of four and to build a simple but comfortable home, and best of all, relieve them of any need ever again to flatter or negotiate with colleagues and superiors. - Author: Alain De Botton
Ganaderos De America quotes by Alain De Botton

Ganaderos De America quotes by Oscar De La Renta
#5. If ever the free institutions of America are destroyed, that event may be attributed to the unlimited authority of the majority, which may at some future time urge the minorities to desperation, and oblige them to have recourse to physical force. Anarchy will then be the result, but it will have been brought about by despotism. - Author: Alexis De Tocqueville
Ganaderos De America quotes by Alexis De Tocqueville
#6. If ever America undergoes great revolutions, they will be brought about by the presence of the black race on the soil of the United States - that is to say, they will owe their origin not to the equality but to the inequality of conditions. - Author: Alexis De Tocqueville
Ganaderos De America quotes by Alexis De Tocqueville
#7. But a people, having taken its rise in civilization and democracy, which should gradually establish an inequality of conditions, until it arrived at inviolable privileges and exclusive castes, would be a novelty in the world; and nothing intimates that America is likely to furnish so singular an example. - Author: Alexis De Tocqueville
Ganaderos De America quotes by Alexis De Tocqueville
#8. Furthermore, when citizens are all almost equal, it becomes difficult for them to defend their independence against the aggressions of power. - Author: Alexis De Tocqueville
Ganaderos De America quotes by Alexis De Tocqueville
#9. It is easy to be mindless in America, because dreaming of and living for a better tomorrow is the American way ... The problem is, in the second half of the twentieth century, we have gotten so good at living for tomorrow that most of us spend very little time in the present. - Author: Barbara De Angelis
Ganaderos De America quotes by Barbara De Angelis
#10. The character of Anglo-American civilization ... is the product ... of two perfectly distinct elements that elsewhere have often made war with each other, but which, in America, they have succeeded in incorporating somehow into one another and combining marvelously. I mean to speak of the spirit of religion and the spirit of freedom. - Author: Alexis De Tocqueville
Ganaderos De America quotes by Alexis De Tocqueville
#11. Religion in America ... Must be regarded as the foremost of the political institutions for that country; for if it does not impart a taste for freedom, it facilitates the use of it ... I do know know whether all Americans have a sincere faith in their religion - for who can search the human heart? - But I am certain that they hold it to be indispensable to the maintenance of republican institutions. This opinion is not peculiar to a class of citizens or a party, but it belongs to the whole nation and to every rank of society. - Author: Alexis De Tocqueville
Ganaderos De America quotes by Alexis De Tocqueville
#12. In democratic countries, knowledge of how to combine is the mother of all other forms of knowledge; on its progress depends that of all the others. - Author: Alexis De Tocqueville
Ganaderos De America quotes by Alexis De Tocqueville
#13. I opened the doors and windows of America, and let the air and sunshine in. - Author: Elsie De Wolfe
Ganaderos De America quotes by Elsie De Wolfe
#14. It's Will Ferrell, he does Will Ferrell movies. But if you really look at it, he tries to do something different with each one, whether it's an action cop movie like 'The Other Guys' or doing 'Talladega Nights' going into red state America or 'Casa de Mi Padre' or 'Stranger Than Fiction,' which is more of a drama. - Author: Adam McKay
Ganaderos De America quotes by Adam McKay
#15. De-Christianizing America has been high on the progressive agenda, and, thanks to the government (especially the federal courts), it has been a great success. Nor can we overlook the contribution of the entertainment industry, which now determines what passes for 'culture.' The main practical vehicle of de-Christianization has been the Sexual Revolution. A few radicals have called for the abolition of the family, but most liberals have been more discreet, avoiding hostile rhetoric while quietly but constantly pursuing policies that result in lower birthrates and fatherless children. - Author: Joseph Sobran
Ganaderos De America quotes by Joseph Sobran
#16. In Ireland, there are the same fossils, the same shells and the same sea bodies, as appear in America, and some of them are found in no other part of Europe. - Author: Georges-Louis Leclerc, Comte De Buffon
Ganaderos De America quotes by Georges-Louis Leclerc, Comte De Buffon
#17. You must live a very free life."
"Me?" she laughed. "I am not who swoops out of the sky to rain fire on pirates!"
"Yeah, but before this I never did much. I mean I did a lot, but ... I lived in a room at a university, and my whole world was in that little room. There was this world inside my head."
De la Fitte studied his head as if she could see through his skull to a little globe inside it somewhere. - Author: Sam Starbuck
Ganaderos De America quotes by Sam Starbuck
#18. In countries where associations are free, secret societies are unknown. In America there are factions, but no conspiracies. - Author: Alexis De Tocqueville
Ganaderos De America quotes by Alexis De Tocqueville
#19. America is an idea, but it's an idea that brings with it some baggage, like power brings responsibility. It's an idea that brings with it equality, but equality even though it's the highest calling, is the hardest to reach. The idea that anything is possible, that's one of the reasons why I'm a fan of America. It's like hey, look there's the moon up there, let's take a walk on it, bring back a piece of it. That's the kind of America that I'm a fan of. - Author: Edward De Bono
Ganaderos De America quotes by Edward De Bono
#20. America is a land of wonders, in which everything is in constant motion and every change seems an improvement. - Author: Alexis De Tocqueville
Ganaderos De America quotes by Alexis De Tocqueville
#21. Mr. Churchill is proud of Britain's stand alone, after France had fallen and before America entered the War. - Author: Eamon De Valera
Ganaderos De America quotes by Eamon De Valera
#22. There are at the present time two great nations in the world, which started from different points, but seem to tend towards the same end. I allude to the Russians and the Americans. Both of them have grown up unnoticed; and whilst the attention of mankind was directed elsewhere, they have suddenly placed themselves in the front rank among the nations, and the world learned their existence and their greatness at almost the same time.

All other nations seem to have nearly reached their natural limits, and they have only to maintain their power; but these are still in the act of growth. All the others have stopped, or continue to advance with extreme difficulty; these alone are proceeding with ease and celerity along a path to which no limit can be perceived. The American struggles against the obstacles which nature opposes to him; the adversaries of the Russian are men. The former combats the wilderness and savage life; the latter, civilization with all its arms. The conquests of the American are therefore gained with the ploughshare; those of the Russian by the sword. The Anglo-American relies upon personal interest to accomplish his ends, and gives free scope to the unguided strength and common sense of the people; the Russian centres all the authority of society in a single arm. The principal instrument of the former is freedom; of the latter, servitude. Their starting-point is different, and their courses are not the same; yet each of them seems marked out by the - Author: Alexis De Tocqueville
Ganaderos De America quotes by Alexis De Tocqueville
#23. In America the majority raises formidable barriers around the liberty of opinion; within these barriers an author may write what he pleases, but woe to him if he goes beyond them. - Author: Alexis De Tocqueville
Ganaderos De America quotes by Alexis De Tocqueville
#24. And who is the hero of that story? Who slew the dragon [totalitarianism]? Yes, it was the ordinary man, the taxpayer, the grunt who fought and won the wars. Yes, it was America and its allies. Yes, it was the great leaders: FDR, de Gaulle, Adenauer, Truman, John Paul II, Thatcher, Reagan. But above all, victory required one man without whom the fight would have been lost at the beginning. It required Winston Churchill. - Author: Charles Krauthammer
Ganaderos De America quotes by Charles Krauthammer
#25. Better use has been made of association and this powerful instrument of action has been applied for more varied aims in America than anywhere else in the world. - Author: Alexis De Tocqueville
Ganaderos De America quotes by Alexis De Tocqueville
#26. Similarly, Alexis de Tocqueville, the famous French political philosopher and sociologist, in his classic Democracy in America, written after a lengthy visit in the 1830s, saw equality, not majority rule, as the outstanding characteristic of America. "In America," he wrote, the aristocratic element has always been feeble from its birth; and if at the present day it is not actually destroyed, it is at any rate so completely disabled, that we can scarcely assign to it any degree of influence on the course of affairs. The - Author: Milton Friedman
Ganaderos De America quotes by Milton Friedman
#27. A French observer is surprised to hear how often an English or an American lawyer quotes the opinions of others, and how little he alludes to his own; ... This abnegation of his own opinion, and this implicit deference to the opinion of his forefathers, which are common to the English and American lawyer, this servitude of thought which he is obliged to profess, necessarily give him more timid habits and more conservative inclinations in England and America than in France. - Author: Alexis De Tocqueville
Ganaderos De America quotes by Alexis De Tocqueville
#28. In America one of the first things done in a new State is to make the post go there; in the forests of Michigan there is no cabin so isolated, no valley so wild, but that letters and newspapers arrive at least once a week. - Author: Alexis De Tocqueville
Ganaderos De America quotes by Alexis De Tocqueville
#29. During my stay in the United States, I witnessed the spontaneous formation of committees in a country for the pursuit and prosecution of a man who had committed a great crime. In Europe, a criminal is an unhappy man who is struggling for his life against the agents of power, whilst the people are merely a spectator of the conflict: in America, he is looked upon as an enemy of the human race, and the whole of mankind is against him. - Author: Alexis De Tocqueville
Ganaderos De America quotes by Alexis De Tocqueville
#30. It seems to me that the Russian prestige is declining and that America holds in its hands the immediate future of the world: as long as America knows how to develop the sense of the earth at the same time as her sense of liberty. [Written from Peking, October 1945, on the eve of departure, after having been stuck there since the war began.] - Author: Pierre Teilhard De Chardin
Ganaderos De America quotes by Pierre Teilhard De Chardin
#31. All I had to do was stick my face into this gruesome mess and bite off the young sheep's testicles. Dag a hogget. I had good teeth. I put my nose into this awful-smelling mess, my teeth solidly around the balls of the six-month-old sheep, and took a bite while I held him upside down. My nose was in fur and ordure. I bit and spat out the product into a pile of what they called prairie oysters. We have them in America too: delicious to eat, but not delicious to remove. They said this was the most sanitary way to de-ball a sheep. After I was done, I passed the sheep onto the next man, who put a little coal tar on the same spot for purposes of cleansing and closing up the wound.
The sheep never let out a bleat. - Author: Errol Flynn
Ganaderos De America quotes by Errol Flynn
#32. The Council of Fashion Designers of America is a national neurotic society of creative leaders in various fields of fashion. - Author: Oscar De La Renta
Ganaderos De America quotes by Oscar De La Renta
#33. My grand affair appears settled, for America is certain of her independence, humanity has gained her cause, and liberty will never be without a place of refuge. - Author: Marquis De Lafayette
Ganaderos De America quotes by Marquis De Lafayette
#34. We may not be the creme de la creme, but we are the creme de la scum. - Author: John Mortimer
Ganaderos De America quotes by John Mortimer
#35. At first, I was shocked that Diane could even suggest this family reunion [on television], and then I realized this is just the way of the world, or at least the way of fin de siecle America. Not only would the next revolution be televised, but so would every other little stupid thing. It was already happening: Television reunions between adopted children and their birth parents ... - Author: Elizabeth Wurtzel
Ganaderos De America quotes by Elizabeth Wurtzel
#36. Under dictatorship, people are enslaved but they know it," he told de Mohrenschildt, recalling his days in the Soviet Union. "Here, the politicians constantly lie to people and they become immune to these lies because they have the privilege of voting. But voting is rigged and democracy here is a gigantic profusion of lies and clever brainwashing." Oswald worried about the FBI's police-state surveillance tactics. And he believed that America was turning more "militaristic" as it increasingly interfered in the internal affairs of other countries. - Author: David Talbot
Ganaderos De America quotes by David Talbot
#37. The affairs of America I shall ever look upon as my first business whilst I am in Europe. Any confidence from the king and ministers, any popularity I may have among my own countrymen, any means in my power, shall be, to the best of my skill, and till the end of my life, exerted in behalf of an interest I have so much at heart. - Author: Marquis De Lafayette
Ganaderos De America quotes by Marquis De Lafayette
#38. A Frenchman, Alexis de Tocqueville, came to America more than a century ago and made some astute observations about the American way. He said that we have a misleading idea at the very head of our Constitution: the pursuit of happiness. One can not pursue happiness; if he does he obscures it. If he will proceed with the human task of life, the relocation of the center of gravity of the personality to something greater outside itself, happiness will be the outcome. - Author: Karl Marlantes
Ganaderos De America quotes by Karl Marlantes
#39. [In America] wealth circulates inconceivable rapidity, and experience shows that it is rare to find two succeeding generations in the full enjoyment of it. - Author: Alexis De Tocqueville
Ganaderos De America quotes by Alexis De Tocqueville
#40. Upon my arrival in the United States the religious aspect of the country was the first thing that struck my attention; and the longer I stayed there, the more I perceived the great political consequences resulting from this new state of things. In France, I had almost always seen the spirit of religion and the spirit of freedom marching in opposite directions. But in America I found they were intimately united and that they reigned in common over the same country. - Author: Alexis De Tocqueville
Ganaderos De America quotes by Alexis De Tocqueville
#41. In America a woman loses her independence for ever in the bonds of matrimony. While there is less constraint on girls there than anywhere else, a wife submits to stricter obligations. For the former, her father's house is a home of freedom and pleasure; for the latter, her husband's is almost a cloister. - Author: Alexis De Tocqueville
Ganaderos De America quotes by Alexis De Tocqueville
#42. I know of no country in which there is so little independence of mind and real freedom of discussion as in America. - Author: Alexis De Tocqueville
Ganaderos De America quotes by Alexis De Tocqueville
#43. The French under the old monarchy held it for a maxim that the king could do no wrong . The Americans entertain the same opinion with respect to the majority ... If ever the free institutions of America are destroyed, that event may be attributed to the omnipotence of the majority. - Author: Alexis De Tocqueville
Ganaderos De America quotes by Alexis De Tocqueville
#44. Laws were made to establish a gradation of ranks; but it was soon found that the soil of America was opposed to a territorial aristocracy. To bring that refractory land into cultivation, the constant and interested exertions of the owner himself were necessary; and when the ground was prepared, its produce was found to be insufficient to enrich a proprietor and a farmer at the same time. The land was then naturally broken up into small portions, which the proprietor cultivated for himself. Land is the basis of an aristocracy, which clings to the soil that supports it; for it is not by privileges alone, nor by birth, but by landed property handed down from generation to generation, that an aristocracy is constituted. A nation may present immense fortunes and extreme wretchedness; but unless those fortunes are territorial, there is no true aristocracy, but simply the class of the rich and that of the poor. - Author: Alexis De Tocqueville
Ganaderos De America quotes by Alexis De Tocqueville
#45. I questioned the faithful of all communions; I particularly sought the society of clergymen, who are the depositories of the various creeds and have a personal interest in their survival ... all thought the main reason for the quiet sway of religion over their country was the complete separation of church and state. I have no hesitation in stating that throughout my stay in America I met nobody, lay or cleric, who did not agree about that. - Author: Alexis De Tocqueville
Ganaderos De America quotes by Alexis De Tocqueville
#46. De Tocqueville, after his tour of the United States in 1831, was to comment that "The Senate contains within a small space a large proportion of the celebrated men of America. Scarcely an individual is to be seen in it who has not had an active and illustrious career: the Senate is composed of eloquent advocates, distinguished generals, wise magistrates, and statesmen of note, whose arguments would do honor to the most remarkable parliamentary debates of Europe." De Tocqueville was not the only foreign observer deeply impressed. The Victorian historian Sir Henry Maine said that the Senate was "the only thoroughly successful institution which has been established since the tide of modern democracy began to run." Prime Minister William Gladstone called it "the most remarkable of all the inventions of modern politics. - Author: Robert A. Caro
Ganaderos De America quotes by Robert A. Caro
#47. Listen, dis foreign TV channels dey spoil de image of our country. Dese white stations dey make billions of dollars to sell your war and blood to de world ... We no bad like dis. OK, why dem no dey show corpses of deir white people during crisis for TV? Abi, people no dey kill for America or Europe?"

"Remove dis toilet pictures!" said another.
"So our barracks be toilet now?" the police answered. "What an insult!"
"You na mad mad police," Monica said.
"Ok, cable TV no be for free anymore!" the police said.
"But it's our pictures we are watching on cable TV," Madam Aniema said. "Why should we pay you to see ourselves and our people?"
The police answered, "Because government dey complain say cable TV dey misrepresent dis religious crisis. - Author: Uwem Akpan
