    America Quotes

    Quotations about America

    • 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.
    • What a pity, when Christopher Colombus discovered America, that he ever mentioned it.
    • I just want to say this. I want to say it gently but I want to say it firmly: There is a tendency for the world to say to America, "the big problems of the world are yours, you go and sort them out," and then to worry when America wants to sort them out.
    • There's the country of America, which you have to defend, but there's also the idea of America. America is more than just a country, it's an idea. An idea that's supposed to be contagious.
      Oprah Winfrey Show, 2002, by Bono
    • America has believed that in differentiation, not in uniformity, lies the path of progress. It acted on this belief; it has advanced human happiness, and it has prospered.
    • America will never run... And we will always be grateful that liberty has found such brave defenders.
    • America has never been united by blood or birth or soil. We are bound by ideals that move us beyond our backgrounds, lift us above our interests and teach us what it means to be citizens.
      Inaugural address, 2001, by George W. Bush
    • By heritage and by choice, the United States of America will make that stand.
      Speech to the United Nations, September 12, 2002, by George W. Bush
    • America has never been an empire. We may be the only great power in history that had the chance, and refused ? preferring greatness to power and justice to glory.
      speech, November 19, 1999, by George W. Bush
    • Our American values are not luxuries but necessities, not the salt in our bread, but the bread itself. Our common vision of a free and just society is our greatest source of cohesion at home and strength abroad, greater than the bounty of our material blessings.
