When you're a leader, you cannot ignore parts of your constituency, even if you know they're not going to vote for you. ~ Keith Ellison
Islwyn Constituency quotes by Keith Ellison
We also know that the various faith-based institutions provide about 50 per cent of the health and education services in the poor communities; we also know that they have a large constituency including women and youth; they have outreach and networks and they are credible to their people. If we want to achieve the Millennium Development Foals by scaling up the responses of all the communities, do we ignore this large investment in people? Or do we engage in dialogue and in action? ~ Thoraya Obaid
Islwyn Constituency quotes by Thoraya Obaid
That environmentalists need the goodwill of children would seem self-evident- but more often than not, children are viewed as props or extraneous to the serious adult work of saving the world. One often overlooked value of children is that they constitue the future political constituency, and their attention or vote- whicich is ultimately based more on a foundation of personal experiance than rational deciscion making- is not guaranteed. ~ Richard Louv
Islwyn Constituency quotes by Richard Louv
The second thing that tore at my heart was the sight of educated yet jobless Baluch youngsters addicted to drugs. The landscape changed non-stop, but the story of deprivation and misery remained the same throughout the belt. NA-260 (Quetta-cum-Chagai-cum-Mastung) was considered the largest electoral constituency of Pakistan, spread over 700 kilometres and bordering Iran and Afghanistan. It was not only an administrative impossibility to govern, but had the additional challenges of stretching from a Pashtun stronghold in Quetta into a mainly Baluch belt. Cross-border smuggling and infiltration was a huge additional complication. ~ Reham Khan
Islwyn Constituency quotes by Reham Khan
Self-government is in inverse ratio to numbers. The larger the constituency, the less the value of any par­ticular vote. When he is merely one of millions, the individual elector feels himself to be impotent, a neg­ligible quantity. The candidates he has voted into office are far away, at the top of the pyramid of power. Theoretically they are the servants of the people; but in fact it is the servants who give orders and the peo­ple, far off at the base of the great pyramid, who must obey. ~ Aldous Huxley
Islwyn Constituency quotes by Aldous Huxley
Peace comes when you talk to the guy you most hate. And that's where the courage of a leader comes, because when you sit down with your enemy, you as a leader must already have very considerable confidence from your own constituency. ~ Desmond Tutu
Islwyn Constituency quotes by Desmond Tutu
As a Scot, representing a Scottish constituency for almost the past 25 years, I do not harbour an overweening ambition to pronounce on each and every matter exclusively English. ~ Charles Kennedy
Islwyn Constituency quotes by Charles Kennedy
We got our revolution out of the way long before the French and the Americans. The monarchy was restored, but the sovereignty of our parliament, made up of and elected by a slowly widening constituency of the people, has never been seriously challenged since then. ~ Robert Webb
Islwyn Constituency quotes by Robert Webb
You could say I'd rewritten the same novel three times and I thought I had to move on. The success of the book, and then the movie, had by then also created a commercial expectation and I remember touring America and seeing people in the audiences who I thought might not want to read the books I wanted to write next. My constituency had become broader, but more mysterious to me. ~ Kazuo Ishiguro
Islwyn Constituency quotes by Kazuo Ishiguro
I agree with Peter Drucker that the culture and legal systems of the United Statesare especially favorable to shareholder interests, compared to other interests and compared to most other countries. Indeed, there are many other countries where any good going to public shareholders has a very low priority and almost every other constituency stands higher in line. ~ Charlie Munger
Islwyn Constituency quotes by Charlie Munger
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. ~ Jeremy Corbyn
Islwyn Constituency quotes by Jeremy Corbyn
What you realize is that everyone has her own priorities - her own constituency. Often, being a leader is not about making grand proclamations or telling people what to do; it's about balancing all these priorities and constituencies. ~ Alyssa Mastromonaco
Islwyn Constituency quotes by Alyssa Mastromonaco
In Shahjahanpur, there was not much of a political fight. It was my family constituency and I knew all the voters and their problems and needs. ~ Jitin Prasada
Islwyn Constituency quotes by Jitin Prasada
I had no inkling of how crazy the political life would turn out to be. You shuttle between your constituency and Ottawa, you try to make every barbecue, festival, parade and charity run, but sometimes you feel pulled in 14 directions at once. ~ Michael Ignatieff
Islwyn Constituency quotes by Michael Ignatieff
All modern U.S. presidents are perforce politicians, prisoners of their past pronouncements, their party, their constituency, and their colleagues. ~ Tony Judt
Islwyn Constituency quotes by Tony Judt
I have no great urge to be minister of this or minister of that, but instead would feel incredible blessed to have the opportunity to be a champion for a constituency and fight for their cause. ~ Adam Rickitt
Islwyn Constituency quotes by Adam Rickitt
The institution of representative government to us seems an essential part of democracy, but the ancients never thought of it. Its immense merit was that it enabled a large constituency to exert indirect power, and thus made possible the distribution of political responsibility throughout the great states of modern times. ~ Bertrand Russell
Islwyn Constituency quotes by Bertrand Russell
Today, the constituency of fear has become much broader, far less selective ~ Wole Soyinka
Islwyn Constituency quotes by Wole Soyinka
I don't have a constituency, and I'm not autobiographical in any way. I write these deeply moral books in a country which would prefer irony to anything with a moral tone. ~ Jim Crace
Islwyn Constituency quotes by Jim Crace
I feel much more strongly about the abdication of responsibility by the media than by political advocates. They're representing a constituency. ~ Jon Stewart
Islwyn Constituency quotes by Jon Stewart
This power became addicting to many elected officials who, instead of going to Washington, DC, for a brief time to represent their constituency, wanted to hold their positions for extended periods of time - even for life. This growing power and the progressive intrusion of government into the lives of the people was so insidious that it went largely undetected. ~ Ben Carson
Islwyn Constituency quotes by Ben Carson
No politician is threatened by the child protective constituency, because it does not exist. ~ Andrew Vachss
Islwyn Constituency quotes by Andrew Vachss
The interesting thing now for No Child Left Behind is that there are very few advocates for it; there is no constituency for it. Parents don't like it, administrators don't like it, and kids don't like it, but politicians and bureaucrats in Washington love it
which should be the first indication to you that it is a troubled program. ~ Bob Schaffer
Islwyn Constituency quotes by Bob Schaffer
The President has not created any Ford constituency, unique from that of any Republican President. The one exception to this is that he does show unique strength with young voters for a Republican. ~ Robert Teeter
Islwyn Constituency quotes by Robert Teeter
Any time an elected official in the world we're in today that appears so dysfunctional challenges a core constituency not of their opponent but of their own political base, I think we should pause and give them credit. ~ Jeb Bush
Islwyn Constituency quotes by Jeb Bush
Talking frankly about race may make white people uncomfortable. Taking a stand to demonstrate the impact of race on law enforcement is difficult. Look what happened when a National Football League star, protesting discrimination, decided to kneel during the national anthem. Some understood the protest and the right to peacefully demonstrate pursuant to the First Amendment to our Constitution. Others have used the protest to divide us further and rally the white supremacist elements of their constituency. Yes, I am speaking to you, Mr. President, the principal antagonist of racial harmony. ~ Mark M. Bello
Islwyn Constituency quotes by Mark M. Bello
He did everything. He studied hard. He went to Harvard. He got married. He had children. He worked. He dreamed big. He pulled his bootstraps all the way up from his humble beginnings to the presidency. He lived the American Dream. And he was called an African Witch Doctor. People asked for his birth certificate. A congressman shouted at him "YOU LIE!" He faced the most recalcitrant Republican Congress ever that was elected by a constituency that wanted to "take the country back."If a black man can be elected as guardian of the American empire, do exactly that, and still not be shielded from racism, what hope is supposed to be left? ~ Mychal Denzel Smith
Islwyn Constituency quotes by Mychal Denzel Smith
You can be president of the United States and have the best, most bipartisan-seeming idea in the world. But if it doesn't have a constituency, you might as well be town clerk of Toad Suck, Arkansas. ~ Timothy Noah
Islwyn Constituency quotes by Timothy Noah
We have so few women in Congress. We are so underrepresented and whether we like it or not, we are in area - in an era that still the women, the handful that are there, have two jobs: they represent the constituency that they're from, and they also represent the women of the nation or the state or sometimes as Maloney has done, of the world. ~ Eleanor Smeal
Islwyn Constituency quotes by Eleanor Smeal
Nobody reads poetry, we are told at every inopportune moment. I read poetry. I am somebody. I am the people, too. It can be allowed that an industrious quantity of contemporary American poetry is consciously written for a hermetic constituency; the bulk is written for the bourgeoisie, leaving a lean cut for labor. Only the hermetically aimed has a snowball's chance in hell of reaching its intended ears. One proceeds from this realization. A staggering figure of vibrant, intelligent people can and do live without poetry, especially without the poetry of their time. This figure includes the unemployed, the rank and file, the union brass, banker, scientist, lawyer, doctor, architect, pilot, and priest. It also includes most academics, most of the faculty of the humanities, most allegedly literary editors and most allegedly literary critics. They do so--go forward in their lives, toward their great reward, in an engulfing absence of poetry--without being perceived or perceiving themselves as hobbled or deficient in any significant way. It is nearly true, though I am often reminded of a Transtromer broadside I saw in a crummy office building in San Francisco:

We got dressed and showed the house

You live well the visitor said

The slum must be inside you.

If I wanted to understand a culture, my own for instance, and if I thought such an understanding were the basis for a lifelong inquiry, I would turn to poetry fi ~ C.D. Wright
Islwyn Constituency quotes by C.D. Wright
Listening to the debates about public schools on the Christian Right, one hears plenty of opposing opinions and a great deal of confusion. Some want to change the schools, others want to leave them. But the smart money seems to know what it is doing. It provides support for programs like the Good News Club, which slowly erode the support for public education in the country at large and in their own constituency in particular. And then it lays the groundwork for dismantling public education in favor of a private system of religious education funded by the state. ~ Katherine Stewart
Islwyn Constituency quotes by Katherine Stewart
Deal with the Devil if the Devil has a constituency - and don't complain about the heat. ~ C.J. Cherryh
Islwyn Constituency quotes by C.J. Cherryh
It is true that I entered parliament at the age of 23, and have now been representing the people of my constituency for over twenty years. ~ Charles Kennedy
Islwyn Constituency quotes by Charles Kennedy
Many people in my constituency come to see me absolutely distraught at the prospect of losing their private rented flat because of the imposition of a housing benefit cut. Social cleansing is going on in all of central London because of the benefit cap. That is a disgraceful situation. ~ Jeremy Corbyn
Islwyn Constituency quotes by Jeremy Corbyn
War cannot eliminate differing ideas and viewpoints, and partisans of the defeated side do not disappear. Though subjugated, they become a sizable political constituency in the postwar period. A dictator may be able to repress them, and in democracies a numerical majority may outvote them, but neither can change their thoughts. Since civil wars are, by nature, deep and fundamental conflicts, the competition between the views that led to war is likely to resurface. The defeated side may be chastened or subdued, but its values and ways of seeing the world reappear, in some form, in politics [107]. ~ Paul D. Escott
Islwyn Constituency quotes by Paul D. Escott
I think there's a number of pillars to success. One is you've got to have a great idea. The other is you've got to have a constituency, you've got to have finance, and you've got to be able to raise awareness. ~ Jeremy Gilley
Islwyn Constituency quotes by Jeremy Gilley
Never attempt to please everybody; it's simply impossible. Try to please your constituency, your fans, your close friends; they will win over the unbelievers. ~ Bangambiki Habyarimana
Islwyn Constituency quotes by Bangambiki Habyarimana
We believe that a company's obligations extend far beyond its bottom line and its shareholders - to a wider constituency that includes employees, customers, suppliers, and the community. ~ John A. Byrne
Islwyn Constituency quotes by John A. Byrne
Real estate sales was perfect training for the experience to go into public life because you learn to accept rejection, learn to meet new people, learn to work with people and find common ground. That's the way you sell houses ... that's also the way you win over constituency. ~ Johnny Isakson
Islwyn Constituency quotes by Johnny Isakson
People in my constituency are starving and born with sixteen fingers. Did you ever eat weasel shish-kebob? Freddy doesn't walk by the side of the motorways to gather dandelions for his salad, but the people who sent me here do. Why are we supporting him? He doesn't deserve it. The Tories won't give milk to children who go to school hungry and come home to baked cat. ~ Mark Helprin
Islwyn Constituency quotes by Mark Helprin
There is clearly a constituency that appreciates the message that Google is sending, that it finds the Chinese government's attitude to the Internet and censorship unacceptable. ~ Rebecca MacKinnon
Islwyn Constituency quotes by Rebecca MacKinnon
Obama's primary constituency was financial institutions. They were the core of the funding for his campaign. They expect to be paid back. And they were. They were paid back by coming out richer and more powerful than they were before the crisis that they created. ~ Noam Chomsky
Islwyn Constituency quotes by Noam Chomsky
The rhetoric and demands from all sides may be harsh, but there are obvious areas of agreement that can provide a basis for progress. Private discussions with Arab leaders are much more promising than their public statements would lead one to believe, and in Israel there is a strong and persistent constituency for moderation that is too little heard or appreciated in neighboring states or in America. ~ Jimmy Carter
Islwyn Constituency quotes by Jimmy Carter
In my own constituency, the benefit cap has had the effect of social cleansing: of people receiving benefit, but the benefit is capped; therefore, they can't meet the rent levels charged and are forced to move. It's devastating for children, devastating for the family and very bad for the community as a whole. ~ Jeremy Corbyn
Islwyn Constituency quotes by Jeremy Corbyn
