Love Some

Forever, it was just soccer - passion, life, love. Then I got married, and I had to transfer some of my energy. I want to be my best for my country, but I also made a really big promise and choice to be the best in my marriage. That has not always been the easiest thing to manage.

- Abby Wambach

Sure Bodies

Back Been

- Abdullah of Saudi Arabia

Principle Very

I believe America is the most powerful country in the world and is a country that stands on principle. Its principles are enshrined in its very foundation and constitution, and it has a duty to serve humanity. America has a duty to follow its conscience to reject repression. It must reject oppression. It must reject humiliation.

- Abdullah of Saudi Arabia

Been Republicans

We tend in this country to talk about Democrats and Republicans, and think there's little group over there called Independents that's maybe 2%. That is not the case, and it has not been the case for most of modern American history.

- Adam Davidson

Asking Out

What's really happening is that every bank in the country is experimenting with the blockchain and experimenting with bitcoin to figure out where the value is. For the first time ever, they're working hand in hand with startups. Banks are asking startups for help to build products.

Love Had

I love travelling, and had the pleasure of being in the most developed country in the world and then parts of two of the most pristine natural areas of the world: the Galapagos islands and the Equador Amazon jungle. The contrast was incredible.

- Adam Garcia

Overpopulation

For the better part of two centuries, outsiders have been offering explanations that range from racist to learned-sounding - the supposed inferiority of blacks, the heritage of slavery, overpopulation - for why Haiti remains the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere.

- Adam Hochschild

Death North

The death of dictator Kim Jong-Il has cast all eyes on North Korea, a country without literature or freedom or truth.

- Adam Johnson

Other Been

For years now, we've been hearing about how China is the great copycat nation, the manufacturer of designs drawn up in other countries, and then an imitator for its own products. That's been true, as the developing country followed a path that Japan and then Korea plowed before it.

- Adam Lashinsky

Reason German

Because Jews were kicked out of every country in Europe at one time or another, and plenty of other places as well, there isn't an ability to identify with a national heritage - you'll never hear a Jew say 'I'm German' or 'I'm Polish,' without saying something about being Jewish as well, and for good reason.

- Adam Mansbach

Forgive Bush

If someone busted into your house and robbed you, would you then forgive them if you found out they were a veteran? Of course not. So why are we forgiving McCain for selling out his country by supporting the Bush agenda?

- Adam McKay

Nation Identify

America is a country that prides itself on being able to identify a 'straight shooter' or 'the genuine article' when it comes to our leaders. As a nation, we can 'feel it in our gut' when someone is giving us a bum steer.

- Adam Peaty

Business Everyone

I'm the first to admit I've had a sheltered life. I grew up in the country and went to a boarding school. It was all just part of the business - be nice to everyone and all that.

- Adam Rickitt

All Americans Our

While our country has made great strides in breaking down the barriers which for so long denied equal opportunity to all Americans, we are not yet the beautiful symphony of brotherhood of Dr. King's dream.

Liver Friendly

Scotland is a picturesque country where the people are friendly yet completely incomprehensible. Also, the national delicacy is a sheep's stomach filled with its liver, lungs, and heart.

- Adam Schlesinger

Choose Times

There's certainly harder things in the world and the country to do than being an actor, but it's a particularly emotionally humiliating thing to do, that you don't really anticipate when you choose to do it. You don't really think that it's going to be quite so soul-crushing at times.

- Adam Scott

Sports Play

I ran track. I ran cross country. But I did not play organized basketball in high school, at least on our team. But I played a lot of sports.

- Adam Silver

Love Private

As soon as the land of any country has all become private property, the landlords, like all other men, love to reap where they never sowed, and demand a rent even for its natural produce.

- Adam Smith

Otherwise Capital

It is not by augmenting the capital of the country, but by rendering a greater part of that capital active and productive than would otherwise be so, that the most judicious operations of banking can increase the industry of the country.

- Adam Smith

Other Role

We tax our companies more than any other country in the world, so we really are not really encouraging businesses to grow and expand, and over time, that's going to make it so that we diminish our role in the global economy.

- Adena Friedman

Guns We Cannot

We cannot be any stronger in our foreign policy for all the bombs and guns we may heap up in our arsenals than we are in the spirit which rules inside the country. Foreign policy, like a river, cannot rise above its source.

Properly Unless

Until and unless we could disband these militias, this country won't be able to function properly.

- Adnan Pachachi

Trust Civil War

If the security forces continue to be dominated as they are now by political groups or sects, then the people won't trust in them - and the result will be civil war or fragmentation of the country.

- Adnan Pachachi

Him Pakistan

Pakistan never valued Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan saab until English songwriter Peter Gabriel started collaborating with him. After that, the country suddenly realised that they have an amazing talent. This is the story of a lot of artistes there.

- Adnan Sami

Injustice Been

When Indians have loved and embraced Pakistani artistes, why can't the latter come out in their support when injustice has been meted out to the people? No one wants these artistes to wage a war against their government. People didn't demand that they condemn their own country. They just expected them to say something for the sake of humanity.

- Adnan Sami

Love Song

Music does not have colour or religion. If I listen to a song, I don't care about the colour, religion, or country of the singer. It doesn't matter, even if it is in another language, because I love the music.

- Adnan Sami

Islam Mean

Pakistan is not the torch-bearer of Islam, and if I change my country, it doesn't mean that I have to change my religion.

- Adnan Sami

Say Northeast

I have gone to many beautiful places across the globe, but I must say that the northeast of our country is the best-kept secret in the world.

- Adnan Sami

Love Reason

The love, adulation, and warmth that I got from India is the reason why I chose this country.

- Adnan Sami

Through Other

People all over the world know me as an Indian artist. I could have chosen any other country and wouldn't have had to go through problems claiming my citizenship. But it is India where my heart is and has always been.

- Adnan Sami

United States

Mexico is intensely affected by all kinds of things that are shipped into this country from the United States.

- Adolfo Aguilar Zinser

Yard United States

The understanding that the political and intellectual class of the United States has of Mexico is a country whose position is that of a back yard.

- Adolfo Aguilar Zinser

Rest Which

We have this consolation, that it was the evident dispensation of God which brought us to this country; and still further, that if the world was all before us, where to choose our place of rest, we should not desire to leave Burmah.

- Adoniram Judson

Want Also

Giving people what they want isn't just good radio; it's also the right way to run a country.

- Adrian Cronauer

Politics Other

It shouldn't be a matter of who deserves help or not, but of whether we want to be a country that allows its neediest to continue to need. Condemnation of individuals and their choices mutes all these other really important logistical questions about funding and budget and politics.

- Adrian Nicole LeBlanc

Love Chicken

When I'm out, maybe I'm looking at the fried chicken, but I know I need to order the grilled. But I'm still from the country. I love my fried food and my neck bones and all that, too.

- Adrian Peterson

Small Play

Holland is a really small country, but with a very strong club and festival scene. Dance music has been huge in Holland since the late eighties. So there were a lot of opportunities for producers and DJs to release records and play live.

- Afrojack

Music Nashville

Holland is to dance music what Nashville is to country.

- Afrojack

Religious Set

You cannot take one set of issues from one country and apply it to another. They are all different, in terms of history, and the religious compositions of the populations involved.

- Aga Khan IV

My Life Big

My life contains so many other things; I have my children, my grandchildren, my two dogs and a big place in the country. I have my own life.

- Agnetha Faltskog

I'm a country bumpkin. I'm not a showgirl.

- Agnetha Faltskog

Poland Staying

If somebody knows me, they know for sure I'm from Poland because I'm playing for my country every tournament, every match. I'm staying in my hometown and my home country because that is where I feel comfortable. I feel good there.

- Agnieszka Radwanska

Very Engaged

When I was engaged in the struggle for my country, I was very young. My horizons were open.

- Ahmed Ben Bella

Obvious Lawful

It is obvious that taking the country from a state of war to being a lawful state won't be easy.

- Ahmed Ben Bella

My Life Been

My life has been a bit special, this is true. I participated in the liberation of my country. I was one of the organisers of its struggle for liberation. I likewise actively participated in all the struggles for liberation.

- Ahmed Ben Bella

United Very

You know the most important thing the Americans did for Iraq apart from liberating the country from Saddam was helping Iraq reduce its debt. The United States worked very hard to reduce 80 percent of Iraqi debt.

- Ahmed Chalabi

Authority Like

To handle the economy and services in a country like Iraq requires delegation of authority and the choice of competent people.

- Ahmed Chalabi

Own Iraqis

Are Iraqis ready to carry the responsibility for their country? Is Iraq ready to be its own master? We want to be the masters of ourselves and to carry our responsibilities in this region.

- Ahmed Chalabi

Bring Regime

The Americans stabbed in the back the forces that worked to bring about the collapse of Saddam's regime and wanted to keep Iraq a sovereign country.

- Ahmed Chalabi

Defeat Rebuild

All Iraqis can unite to defeat terrorism and can unite to rebuild the country.

- Ahmed Chalabi

Small Entangled

Syria may appear to be a small country, but it is just the type of entangled conflict that can lead to a world catastrophe. It does not take much imagination to see Syria as the Sarajevo of the 21st century, leading to world war.

- Ahmed Zewail

Egypt Divided

Growing up in Egypt, I never saw the country as divided as it is today. We now have two main political groupings: the Islamist parties and the civil, or liberal, political parties.

- Ahmed Zewail

Middle 1920s

Egypt was the first democracy in the Middle East. Women were unveiled in the 1920s. Egypt is a country of civilization, of culture. It shouldn't be suffering.

- Ahmed Zewail

Muslim Including

When Mohamed Morsi was elected president of Egypt in 2012, many in the country, including me, were hopeful that he would become a democratic president for all Egyptians - not only for the Muslim Brotherhood.

- Ahmed Zewail

Been Carried

I left Egypt in 1969 for graduate school at the University of Pennsylvania. I have been on the faculty at Caltech for 37 years and carried dual citizenship for 31. But my commitment to the country of my birth never wavered.

- Ahmed Zewail

Student Young

In the 1970s, what I, as a young foreign student studying in the United States, found most dynamic, exciting and impressive about this country is what much of the world continues to value most about the U.S. today: its open intellectual culture, its great universities, its capacity for discovery and innovation.

- Ahmed Zewail

Muslim Islamists

The Muslim Brotherhood and the Salifist parties are a real force in the Egyptian society. No civil, liberal government can succeed, even after new elections, if the Islamists are forced to work underground as a foe and the country remains divided.

- Ahmed Zewail

Africa Eastern

Turkey is a European country, an Asian country, a Middle Eastern country, Balkan country, Caucasian country, neighbor to Africa, Black Sea country, Caspian Sea, all these.

- Ahmet Davutoglu

Been Larger

Widespread state control over art and culture has left no room for freedom of expression in the country. For more than 60 years, anyone with a dissenting opinion has been suppressed. Chinese art is merely a product: it avoids any meaningful engagement. There is no larger context. Its only purpose is to charm viewers with its ambiguity.

- Ai Weiwei

Some Became

To survive, China had to open up to the West. It could not survive otherwise. This was after many millions have died of hunger in a country that was like North Korea is today. Once we became part of global competition, we had to agree to some rules. It's painful, but we had to. Otherwise there was no way to survive.

- Ai Weiwei

Small Notorious

This nation is notorious for its ability to make or fake anything cheaply. 'Made-in-China' goods now fill homes around the world. But our giant country has a small problem. We can't manufacture the happiness of our people.

- Ai Weiwei

Proud Will

I could be anywhere in the country, and people will ask, 'Are you from Jersey?' I'm proud of that. We're a weird breed.

- AJ Lee

Making Issue

Let stars choose what causes they want to endorse without making it an issue of loyalty to the state or country.

- Ajith Kumar

Big United States

The United States is a big country but unfortunately it seems it has the brain of a little bird not befitting the greatness of the country.

- Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani

Suffering Our

We don't have a major problem right now in our country, and life is normal. Things like unemployment, which the youth are suffering from, and the rate of inflation - these are chronic conditions and we have to solve them.

- Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani

Think I Think

I think immigrants, when they're stressed, think that there's something wrong with America, when it's really just difficult to leave a country and all that you know.

- Akhil Sharma

Like Japan

A resource-poor country like Japan can only rely on people's endeavor and knowledge. I would like to continue my effort to provide help to younger people.

- Akira Suzuki

Development Prime

I would like Modi to become the Prime Minister and expand the Gujarat model of development across the country.

- Akkineni Nagarjuna
