The things that will destroy America are prosperity at any price, peace at any price, safety first instead of duty first and love of soft living and the get-rich-quick theory of life.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The fruits of Christianity were religious wars, butcheries, crusades, inquisitions, extermination of the natives of America and the introduction of African slaves in their place.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We defend and we build a way of life, not for America alone, but for all of mankind.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The political lesson of Watergate is this: Never again must America allow an arrogant, elite guard of political adolescents to by-pass the regular party organization and dictate the terms of a national election.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The great thing about America is everybody should vote.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I always consider the settlement of America with reverence and wonder, as the opening of a grand scene and design in providence, for the illumination of the ignorant and the emancipation of the slavish part of mankind all over the earth.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Organized crime in America takes in over forty billion dollars a year. This is quite a profitable sum, especially when one consider that the Mafia spends very little for office supplies.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Our society distributes itself into Barbarians, Philistines and Populace; and America is just ourselves with the Barbarians quite left out, and the Populace nearly.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
In America nothing dies easier than tradition.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Whoever wants to know the heart and mind of America had better learn baseball, the rules and realities of the game.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
What you have to do is enter the fiction of America, enter America as fiction. It is, indeed, on this fictive basis that it dominates the world.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The fact that there are so many weak, poor and boring stories and novels written and published in America has been ascribed by our rebels to the horrible squareness of our institutions, the idiocy of power, the debasement of sexual instincts, and the failure of writers to be alienated enough. The poems and novels of these same rebellious spirits, and their theoretical statements, are grimy and gritty and very boring too, besides being nonsensical, and it is evident by now that polymorphous sexuality and vehement declarations of alienation are not going to produce great works of art either.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
In America there are two classes of travel -- first class, and with children.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The problem of the twentieth century is the problem of the color-line -- the relation of the darker to the lighter races of men in Asia and Africa, in America and the islands of the sea. It was a phase of this problem that caused the Civil War.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
You see few people here in America who really care very much about living a Christian life in a democratic world.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The great majority of people in England and America are modest, decent and pure-minded and the amount of virgins in the world today is stupendous.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Everybody in America is soft, and hates conflict. The cure for this, both in politics and social life, is the same -- hardihood. Give them raw truth.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The average educated man in America has about as much knowledge of what a political idea is as he has of the principles of counterpoint. Each is a thing used in politics or music which those fellows who practice politics or music manipulate somehow. Show him one and he will deny that it is politics at all. It must be corrupt or he will not recognize it. He has only seen dried figs. He has only thought dried thoughts. A live thought or a real idea is against the rules of his mind.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It has been an unchallengeable American doctrine that cranberry sauce, a pink goo with overtones of sugared tomatoes, is a delectable necessity of the Thanksgiving board and that turkey is uneatable without it. There are some things in every country that you must be born to endure; and another hundred years of general satisfaction with Americans and America could not reconcile this expatriate to cranberry sauce, peanut butter, and drum majorettes.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The business of America is business and the chief ideal of the American people is idealism.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We in America have everything we need except the most important thing of all-time to think and the habit of thought.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I think there are only three things America will be known for 2, 000 years from now when they study this civilization: the Constitution, jazz music and baseball.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The Miss America contest is the most perfectly rendered theater in our culture, for it so perfectly captures what we yearn for: a low-class ritual, a polished restatement of vulgarity, that wants to open the door to high-class respectability by way of plain middle-class anxiety and ambition.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The ideology of this America wants to establish reassurance through Imitation. But profit defeats ideology, because the consumers want to be thrilled not only by the guarantee of the Good but also by the shudder of the Bad.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
No culture on earth outside of mid-century suburban America has ever deployed one woman per child without simultaneously assigning her such major productive activities as weaving, farming, gathering, temple maintenance, and tent-building. The reason is that full-time, one-on-one child-raising is not good for women or children.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Whatever America hopes to bring to pass in the world must first come to pass in the heart of America.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
There is nothing wrong with America that faith, love of freedom, intelligence, and energy of her citizens cannot cure.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Here in America we are descended in blood and in spirit from revolutionists and rebels -- men and women who dare to dissent from accepted doctrine. As their heirs, may we never confuse honest dissent with disloyal subversion.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The real death of America will come when everyone is alike.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Nobody saves America by sniffing cocaine, jiggling your knees blankly in the rain, when it snows in your nose you catch cold in your brain.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Clothes make the poor invisible. America has the best-dressed poverty the world has ever known.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
In America today, we are nearer a final triumph over poverty than is any other land.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Fortunately, the time has long passed when people liked to regard the United States as some kind of melting pot, taking men and women from every part of the world and converting them into standardized, homogenized Americans. We are, I think, much more mature and wise today. Just as we welcome a world of diversity, so we glory in an America of diversity -- an America all the richer for the many different and distinctive strands of which it is woven.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
For this is what America is all about. It is the uncrossed desert and the unclimbed ridge. It is the star that is not reached and the harvest that is sleeping in the unplowed ground.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Every country gets the circus it deserves. Spain gets bullfights. Italy gets the Catholic Church. America gets Hollywood.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I can never suppose this country so far lost to all ideas of self-importance as to be willing to grant America independence; if that could ever be adopted I shall despair of this country being ever preserved from a state of inferiority and consequently falling into a very low class among the European States.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Any hope that America would finally grow up vanished with the rise of fundamentalist Christianity. Fundamentalism, with its born-again regression, its pink-and-gold concept of heaven, its literal-mindedness, its rambunctious good cheer... its anti-intellectualism... its puerile hymns... and its faith-healing... are made to order for King Kid America.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The trouble in America is not that we are making too many mistakes, but that we are making too few.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Racism is when you have laws set up, systematically put in a way to keep people from advancing, to stop the advancement of a people. Black people have never had the power to enforce racism, and so this is something that white America is going to have to work out themselves. If they decide they want to stop it, curtail it, or to do the right thing... then it will be done, but not until then.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
In other countries, art and literature are left to a lot of shabby bums living in attics and feeding on booze and spaghetti, but in America the successful writer or picture-painter is indistinguishable from any other decent businessman.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I dream of a place and a time where America will once again be seen as the last best hope of earth.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
America is promises to take! America is promises to us to take them.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
In America few people will trust you unless you are irreverent.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
In America all too few blows are struck into flesh. We kill the spirit here, we are experts at that. We use psychic bullets and kill each other cell by cell.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
If violence is wrong in America, violence is wrong abroad. If it is wrong to be violent defending black women and black children and black babies and black men, then it is wrong for America to draft us, and make us violent abroad in defense of her. And if it is right for America to draft us, and teach us how to be violent in defense of her, then it is right for you and me to do whatever is necessary to defend our own people right here in this country.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I think the greatest taboos in America are faith and failure.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Let America first praise mediocrity even, in her children, before she praises... the best excellence in the children of any other land.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I see America spreading disaster. I see America as a black curse upon the world. I see a long night settling in and that mushroom which has poisoned the world withering at the roots.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The settlement of America had its origins in the unsettlement of Europe. America came into existence when the European was already so distant from the ancient ideas and ways of his birthplace that the whole span of the Atlantic did not widen the gulf.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
One of the best kept secrets in America is that people are aching to make a commitment, if they only had the freedom and environment in which to do so.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is capitalist America that produced the modern independent woman. Never in history have women had more freedom of choice in regard to dress, behavior, career, and sexual orientation.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A serious problem in America is the gap between academe and the mass media, which is our culture. Professors of humanities, with all their leftist fantasies, have little direct knowledge of American life and no impact whatever on public policy.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The voice of America has no undertones or overtones in it. It repeats its optimistic catchwords in a tireless monologue that has the slightly metallic sound of a gramophone.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Let us not forget who we are. Drug abuse is a repudiation of everything America is.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Europe has a press that stresses opinions; America a press, radio, and television that emphasize news.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We defend and we build a way of life, not for America alone, but for all mankind.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I sometimes think that the saving grace of America lies in the fact that the overwhelming majority of Americans are possessed of two great qualities- a sense of humor and a sense of proportion.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The things that will destroy America are prosperity-at-any-price, peace-at-any-price, safety-first instead of duty-first, the love of soft living, and the get-rich-quick theory of life.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
