I’ll tell you sort of an odd story: My music taste changed on 9/11. And it’s very strange. I actually intellectually find this very curious. But on 9/11, I didn’t like how rock music responded. And country music collectively, the way they responded, it resonated with me.

When you decide to get involved in a military operation in a place like Syria, you’ve got to be prepared, as we learned from Iraq and Afghanistan, to become the government, and I’m not sure any country, either the United States or I don’t hear of anyone else, who’s willing to take on that responsibility.
Every country has the government it deserves.
In order to lead a country or a company, you’ve got to get everybody on the same page and you’ve got to be able to have a vision of where you’re going.

You can have all the gun control laws in the country, but if you don’t enforce them, people are going to find a way to protect themselves. We need to recognize that bad people are doing bad things with these weapons. It’s not the law-abiding citizens, it’s not the person who uses it as a hobby.
I love entrepreneurship because that’s what makes this country grow, and if I can help companies grow, I am creating jobs; I am setting foundations for future generations. It sends the message that the American Dream is alive and well.
I want to tell you that if the Great Spirit had chosen anyone to be the chief of this country, it is myself.
If you work hard and play by the rules, this country is truly open to you. You can achieve anything.
As a young boy in a new country, you had to make new friends, and that was really difficult.
You don’t know what hard times are, daddy. Hard times are when the textile workers around this country are out of work, they got 4 or 5 kids and can’t pay their wages, can’t buy their food. Hard times are when the autoworkers are out of work, and they tell ’em to go home.
As a country, we can’t teach kids how to read and write when we got 18 years to do it. And that’s – that’s a disgrace.
Brazil does not want to become an exporter of crude oil. No. We want to be a country that exports oil byproducts – more gasoline, high-quality oil – and to strengthen the petrochemical industry.
It’s a great privilege and an honour to have the experiences and opportunities that I do to meet extraordinary Australians right across our country who share a great generosity of spirit.
I love the Country Music Hall of Fame. I don’t think it’s just a hall of fame and it’s not just a museum. It’s a schoolhouse. It’s a place where people from all across the world can come and learn about this great genre that we’re making a living out of.
The first condition of understanding a foreign country is to smell it.
I feel like everyone else in this country today. I am utterly devastated.
The issues that matter to me are the social safety nets for people, health care, middle-class concerns. We need to take care of the middle class and the poor in our country.
California is a tragic country – like Palestine, like every Promised Land.
America is just the country that how all the written guarantees in the world for freedom are no protection against tyranny and oppression of the worst kind. There the politician has come to be looked upon as the very scum of society.
The time is long overdue to stop looking for progress through racial or ethnic leaders. Such leaders have too many incentives to promote polarizing attitudes and actions that are counterproductive for minorities and disastrous for the country.
Canada in general is a beautiful country.
I have said, with respect to authorization bills, that I do not want the Congress or the country to commit fiscal suicide on the installment plan.
They wrote in the old days that it is sweet and fitting to die for one’s country. But in modern war, there is nothing sweet nor fitting in your dying. You will die like a dog for no good reason.
Love of country, subordination of personal interests to the common good, concern and care for the helpless and the impoverished – these are among the lost and faded values that we seek to recover and revitalize as we commence our journey towards a better Philippines.
In this country American means white. Everybody else has to hyphenate.
For me, education has never been simply a policy issue – it’s personal. Neither of my parents and hardly anyone in the neighborhood where I grew up went to college. But thanks to a lot of hard work and plenty of financial aid, I had the opportunity to attend some of the finest universities in this country.
America was never officially a Christian nation, since neither Jesus Christ nor the Bible are mentioned in the Constitution or the Declaration of Independence. But there’s no denying the influence Christianity has had on our country.
I don’t want to feel I’m responsible for anorexia across the country.
Progress is possible, but it is fragile – and across our country, the battles for our most basic civil rights rage on.
I don’t think Italy is a racist country, because there are so many immigrants.
I wish Obama would focus on governing the United States and would forget his country’s imperialist pretensions.
Every day, women and girls are finding incredible confidence and taking risks. When they change one mind, pretty soon, they have changed one tradition. That changed tradition has changed a village. That one village has changed a country. That new reality means new opportunities for themselves and their daughters.
We are a wealthy country. We also are the global engine of innovation in health care, whether it’s the pharmaceutical industry or the creation of medical devices.
I believe agriculture is the key to change for this country.
There is a separation – a very clear separation – between the judiciary, the legal system, and the political system in this country, and that’s why Labor has a problem with the issue of mandatory sentencing as a principle.
Our country is that spot to which our heart is bound.
A Canadian is a Canadian is a Canadian. And you devalue the citizenship of every Canadian in this place and in this country when you break down and make it conditional for anyone.
India does not need to become anything else. India must become only India. This is a country that once upon a time was called the golden bird.
It’s impossible for someone who is human to have all good things together, just as there is no single country able to provide all good things for itself.
Science knows no country, because knowledge belongs to humanity, and is the torch which illuminates the world. Science is the highest personification of the nation because that nation will remain the first which carries the furthest the works of thought and intelligence.
This country, with its institutions, belongs to the people who inhabit it. Whenever they shall grow weary of the existing government, they can exercise their constitutional right of amending it, or exercise their revolutionary right to overthrow it.
No fundamental social change occurs merely because government acts. It’s because civil society, the conscience of a country, begins to rise up and demand – demand – demand change.
There should not be a question of legal or illegal immigration. People came and immigrated to this country from the time of the Indians. No one’s illegal. They should just be able to come.
For my own part, I wish the bald eagle had not been chosen the representative of our country. He is a bird of bad moral character. He does not get his living honestly.
I call upon the scientific community in our country, those who gave us nuclear weapons, to turn their great talents now to the cause of mankind and world peace: to give us the means of rendering these nuclear weapons impotent and obsolete.
It was expected of all good middle-class Indian people to build India and, as you know, Indians – when we say, ‘build India,’ it was all about being an accountant, a lawyer, an engineer. So it was this idea that professionals would build the country.
It is a call for black people in this country to unite, to recognize their heritage, to build a sense of community. It is a call for black people to define their own goals, to lead their own organizations.
Our country may be likened to a new house. We lack many things, but we possess the most precious of all – liberty!
I’m opposed to any policy that would deny in our country any human being from access to public safety, public education, or public health, period.
It’s very clear that AI is going to impact every industry. I think that every nation needs to make sure that AI is a part of their national strategy. Every country will be impacted.
I don’t actually subscribe to the view that all power corrupts. But absolute power – when secured on the back of massive parliamentary majorities, which don’t reflect the balance of political opinion in the country – can corrupt absolutely.
The Clinton administration launched an attack on people in Texas because those people were religious nuts with guns. Hell, this country was founded by religious nuts with guns. Who does Bill Clinton think stepped ashore on Plymouth Rock?
We will not allow our country ever to be at the mercy of commodity price volatility or external markets.
Merchants have no country. The mere spot they stand on does not constitute so strong an attachment as that from which they draw their gains.
Citizenship consists in the service of the country.
Things in our country run in spite of government, not by aid of it.
The object of war is not to die for your country but to make the other bastard die for his.
One person alone can’t do anything as important as bringing genuine democracy to a country.
I don’t feel we did wrong in taking this great country away from them. There were great numbers of people who needed new land, and the Indians were selfishly trying to keep it for themselves.
I suppose more than anything, it’s the way of life in this part of the country that influences my writing. In Eastern North Carolina, with the exception of Wilmington, most people live in small towns.
To defend a country you need an army, but to defend a civilization you need education.
Liberals believe that they own blacks – still. They believe they’re something proprietary about being black in this country, and if you deviate from the way they want you to think, in the way they want you to act, they grow violent.
The first time I ever put on a cowboy hat for a video a lot of people on my team was like, ‘Are you sure? You know, we don’t want people we think we country.’ I’m like, ‘It’s cute! I don’t care what people think.’
Globalisation has powered economic growth in developing countries such as China. Global logistics, low domestic production costs, and strong consumer demand have let the country develop strong export-based manufacturing, making the country the workshop of the world.
When I was in college, my school newspaper accepted an ad from a Holocaust revisionist organization. This would have been offensive on most college campuses across the country, but I went to a school with a very large Jewish population, so the ad, as you might expect, stirred absolute outrage.
And by the way, a piece of news, Israel is the one country in which everyone is pro-American, opposition and coalition alike. And I represent the entire people of Israel who say, ‘Thank you, America.’ And we’re friends of America, and we’re the only reliable allies of America in the Middle East.
No matter what country, the love our fans have is absolutely amazing and we are so lucky to have so much support from them.
I am grateful for the opportunities I have been given to participate in that work as a representative of my country, Canada, whose people have, I think, shown their devotion to peace.
One person may need (or want) more leisure, another more work; one more adventure, another more security, and so on. It is this diversity that makes a country, indeed a state, a city, a church, or a family, healthy. ‘One-size-fits-all,’ and that size determined by the State has a name, and that name is ‘slavery.’
Until I see an Arab country, a Muslim country, with a democracy, I won’t understand how anyone can have a problem with how they’re treated.
My fidelity is to my country, not my political party. Country first.
Memorial Day isn’t just about honoring veterans, its honoring those who lost their lives. Veterans had the fortune of coming home. For us, that’s a reminder of when we come home we still have a responsibility to serve. It’s a continuation of service that honors our country and those who fell defending it.
It’s time to listen to the stories of the Indigenous; we are blessed as a country to look to the wisdom of a really old country.
I think big business is a terrible thing for the spirit of the country, as our spirit is the best thing about us.
The proof of a poet is that his country absorbs him as affectionately as he has absorbed it.
This is a great country, but fortunately for you, it is not perfect. There is much to be done to bring about complete equality. Remove hunger. Bring reality closer to theory and democratic principles.
I do feel that I have to use my voice for those that don’t have one. I have to do the best I can in my own work to represent my culture, represent the women of my country, of Latin America. What we stand for. What we’re made of.
The immediate future is going to be tragic for all of us unless we find a way of making the vast educational resources of this country serve the true purpose of education, truth and justice.
There is always inequality in life. Some men are killed in a war and some men are wounded and some men never leave the country. Life is unfair.
I’m a registered, vetted gun owner, but that’s because I live way out in the country, like way out in the middle of nowhere.
You’ve got to vote, vote, vote, vote. That’s it; that’s the way we move forward. That’s how we make progress for ourselves and for our country.
One out of four people in this country is mentally unbalanced. Think of your three closes friends; if they seem OK, then you’re the one.
There is too much disagreement for disagreement’s sake. In a time of persistent challenges that still call into question our most sacred aspirations as a country, we cannot afford shallow callous divisiveness in our public debate.
I like geography. I could tell you the capital of any country you want.
Voting is the expression of our commitment to ourselves, one another, this country and this world.
There’s not an American in this country free until every one of us is free.
The transition from dictatorship to democracy is always very difficult, and if you read a history of any country that went through this, it wasn’t easy. And, you know, you don’t end dictatorship one day and next day you have fully fledged democracy.
I think it’s a very good thing to leave your country and look at it from afar.
Let us never forget that government is ourselves and not an alien power over us. The ultimate rulers of our democracy are not a President and senators and congressmen and government officials, but the voters of this country.
I came from a middle-class family. My dad was a professor; my mom was a nurse. I didn’t come from money, and I didn’t come from circles of power. I didn’t come from the country club; I came from the town park.
We believe in freedom, freedom for the people of each country to follow their destiny without external interference.
So many people in this country have a dual loyalty. They have loyalty to America, but they also are determined to have their parade up Fifth Avenue once a year… a Cuban parade or a Puerto Rican parade – many other countries. So they really don’t forget.
There are millions of Americans outside Washington who are tired of stale political arguments and are moving this country forward. They believe, and I believe, that here in America, our success should depend not on accident of birth, but the strength of our work ethic and the scope of our dreams.
The uniform makes for brotherhood, since when universally adopted it covers up all differences of class and country.
If the rabble were lopped off at one end and the aristocrats at the other, all would be well with the country.
We can have democracy in this country, or we can have great wealth concentrated in the hands of a few, but we can’t have both.
There is no Left and Right any more. Left and Right is irrelevant… We need big change. We’ve got to get back control of our country.
We’re in greater danger today than we were the day after Pearl Harbor. Our military is absolutely incapable of defending this country.
I’ve always enjoyed traveling and having experience with different cultures and different people. But it’s also a wonderful thing to be able to benefit and enable research, not only in our country but around the world.
In politics it is necessary either to betray one’s country or the electorate. I prefer to betray the electorate.
Everyone has to do their part, too. No one is disconnected. And everyone has to improve their skills, take care of their own health to the extent they can and contribute their time and talents to the community and country.
Prosperous farmers mean more employment, more prosperity for the workers and the business men of every industrial area in the whole country.
The white people should go back to Europe, and the country should be returned to the American Indians. This is the future I would like to see for the so-called United States.
This country isn’t a melting pot. Think of this country as a stir fry. That’s what this country should be. A place where people are appreciated for who they are.
There are seasons in every country when noise and impudence pass current for worth; and in popular commotions especially, the clamors of interested and factious men are often mistaken for patriotism.
Anybody can be good in the country. There are no temptations there.
A man who is good enough to shed his blood for the country is good enough to be given a square deal afterwards.
If you look around in London, there is a lot of dirty money. People see it as a safe haven: a bolthole to rely on if they are criminal or politically exposed in their own country.
We are at our best when we give the ultimate sacrifice of putting other people, putting the country, putting our communities ahead of ourselves.
National character is only another name for the particular form which the littleness, perversity and baseness of mankind take in every country. Every nation mocks at other nations, and all are right.
Ours is a multi-religious country, a multi-lingual country; we have many different modes of worship. We believe in peaceful and harmonious co-existence.
The Negro has been here in America since 1619, a total of 344 years. He is not going anywhere else; this country is his home. He wants to do his part to help make his city, state, and nation a better place for everyone, regardless of color and race.
November is Native American Heritage month, and a good time to honor the legacy of our ancestors, but every day we should stop to think about our country’s beginning and that the United States would not exist if not for a great deal of sacrifice, blood, and tears by Indian Tribes across the country.
Madam, I have come from a country where people are hanged if they talk.
I think the people in this country have had enough of experts with organisations from acronyms saying that they know what is best and getting it consistently wrong.
We need a new generation of leaders who will promote policies that will foster economic growth and alleviate the middle class squeeze, defend America’s national security against those who threaten our people, reform the culture of Washington, D.C., and reassert the constitutional principles that make our country unique.
Every country needs a strong leader in order to progress.
I firmly believe that we have more latent musical talent in America than there is in any other country. But to dig it out there must be good music throughout the land, a lot of it. Everyone must hear it, and such a process takes time.
I was 18, at art school, and saw this cute boy playing banjo. I was obsessed. I taught myself how to play. I listened to a lot of country and just messed around. The second song I wrote on the banjo was ‘Good to Be a Man.’ That what’s got me signed.
The future generation is not going to judge India just on the basis of one election. There are greater things by which the country is judged. The future generation is going to want a strong economy.
The Internet is a worldwide platform for sharing information. It is a community of common interests. No country is immune to such global challenges as cybercrime, hacking, and invasion of privacy.
I spent thirty-three years and four months in active military service as a member of this country’s most agile military force, the Marine Corps. I served in all commissioned ranks from Second Lieutenant to Major-General.

I don’t mind putting my heart out there for the audience, and for the country music fans… to be vulnerable with them… that’s my job as an artist.
The BJP is trying to spread fire and violence across the country, and there is only one force that can stop it – the workers of the Congress and its leaders.
Any time a country transitioned to a fiat currency, they collapsed. That’s just world history; you don’t have to know about cryptocurrency to know that.
The greatness of this country lies in how every single person can exercise their right to be himself or herself.
Gluttony is harder than it looks. It’s listed as a sin, as something you give in to, when really it’s a skill, requiring not just hunger but resilience. That’s why the most resilient city in the country, New Orleans, is also the most gluttonous.
There is no week nor day nor hour when tyranny may not enter upon this country, if the people lose their roughness and spirit of defiance.
This country was fine in my opinion before Brexit, so let’s all settle down.
A Country is not a mere territory; the particular territory is only its foundation. The Country is the idea which rises upon that foundation; it is the sentiment of love, the sense of fellowship which binds together all the sons of that territory.
Ask not what you can do for your country. Ask what’s for lunch.
Look folks, we know who built this country and we know who is going to rebuild it. It’s you. Instead of vilifying you, we should be thanking you. We owe you.
Intellectually I know that America is no better than any other country; emotionally I know she is better than every other country.
War against a foreign country only happens when the moneyed classes think they are going to profit from it.
This is the richest country in the world. There’s no reason kids should be going to school hungry. Food is something that everyone should have. It just is.
No man is a hero in his own country.
Everybody has their favorite sad songs. That’s part of what I love so much about country music. Country music is never afraid to go with a sad song.
I have visited slums in Mumbai, I have visited slums in other countries, but nothing is like North Korea because North Korean starvation, it’s a systematic starvation by a country that chose to starve us.
I suggest that ten thousand Negroes march on Washington, D.C., the capital of the Nation, with the slogan, ‘We loyal Negro American citizens demand the right to work and fight for our country.’
I own nothing; I just stay with friends all over the country.
As to my followers, I wish no man to follow me who is not sound at the heart in the cause of his country; and either at the head or in the ranks of these, I will always consider it my glory to be found.
So long as you are ready to die for humanity, the life of your country is immortal.
We should not be flying a flag of a group who wants to erase our history and bring mass destruction to our country through Communism.
I was very upset because I did not have a fair trial to prove my loyalty to this country.
God bless all who serve or have served our country.
I was born in Europe… and I’ve traveled all over the world. I can tell you that there is no place, no country, that is more compassionate, more generous, more accepting, and more welcoming than the United States of America.
All the United States, it is a society that is split like to the bottom, that had very poor people in the country that is one of the wealthiest countries.
I would die for my country but I could never let my country die for me.
I used to think of ‘alternative rock’ as a radio format, kind of the way ‘indie rock’ used to have more meaning. But it means different things depending on where you are or what country you’re in.
I think popular music in this country is one of the few things in the twentieth century that have made giant strides in reverse.
Great artists have no country.
The whole object of travel is not to set foot on foreign land; it is at last to set foot on one’s own country as a foreign land.
I don’t have a personal life. Whatever I have is for the country and society.
We don’t need a melting pot in this country, folks. We need a salad bowl. In a salad bowl, you put in the different things. You want the vegetables – the lettuce, the cucumbers, the onions, the green peppers – to maintain their identity. You appreciate differences.
Switzerland is a country where very few things begin, but many things end.
The courts of this country should not be the places where resolution of disputes begins. They should be the places where the disputes end after alternative methods of resolving disputes have been considered and tried.
I know what motivated you was not just a political campaign. It was your love of our country.
Science and technology are a propellant for building a thriving country, and the happiness of the people and the future of the country hinge on their development.
If ever I feel the soul within me elevate and expand to those dimensions not wholly unworthy of its Almighty Architect, it is when I contemplate the cause of my country, deserted by all the world beside, and I standing up boldly and lone and hurling defiance at her victorious oppressors.
My fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.
We now have to see our country surrender to the enemy without demonstrating our power up to 120 percent. We are now on a course for a humiliating peace – or, rather, a humiliating surrender.
During most of my life, my contact with Jews and Judaism was slight. I gave little thought to their problems, save in asking myself, from time to time, whether we were showing by our lives due appreciation of the opportunities which this hospitable country affords. My approach to Zionism was through Americanism.
My country is the world, and my religion is to do good.
Terror is only justice: prompt, severe and inflexible; it is then an emanation of virtue; it is less a distinct principle than a natural consequence of the general principle of democracy, applied to the most pressing wants of the country.
America does not need another political campaign based on denial and avoidance of some of our real problems. It needs a crusade to reform and renew our country, its institutions and political system.
The restaurants express the spirit of the chef, the spirit of the city, the country.
