The industrial landscape is already littered with remains of once successful companies that could not adapt their strategic vision to altered conditions of competition.
"But we believed if we kept on working, if we kept on marching, if we kept on voting, if we kept on believing, we would make America beautiful for everybody."
Rev Al Sharpton
Don't be afraid to see what you see.
A revolution is not a bed of roses. A revolution is a struggle between the future and the past.
Big things are expected of us, and nothing big ever came of being small.
I have been called the most powerful woman in the world, but I have on occasion lacked even the power of speech, because although we have crossed the threshold into a new century, there are still too many questions for which we have no answers.
Madeleine K Albright
Some things you do because you want to. Some things you do because of the needs of others in your family.
Real Live Preacher
Service is the rent we pay for the privilege of living on this earth.
Shirley Anita Chisholm
Political image is like mixing cement. When it's wet, you can move it around and shape it, but at some point it hardens and there's almost nothing you can do to reshape it.
Walter F Mondale
There can be no compromise on the right of personal security; there can be no compromise on securing of human rights.
Hubert H Humphrey
No TV performance takes such careful preparation as an off-the-cuff talk.
Richard M Nixon
Israel is still the only country in the world against which there is a written document to the effect that it must disappear.
Live so that your friends can defend you but never have to.
H W Arnold
We know what the animals do, what are the needs of the beaver, the bear, the salmon, and other creatures, because long ago men married them and acquired this knowledge from their animal wives. Today the priests say we lie, but we know better.
"My late mother used to say that it did not matter if you came to this country on the Mayflower or a slave ship, across the Rio Grande or through Ellis Island; we are all in the same boat now. I believe that the challenge for all of us is to work to make certain that Americans now come together. We must now transform this nation so that we can live up to the promise of our democracy, the promise of our Constitution and so that we can be America again."
Carol Moseley Braun
The foreign policy of the US has been one of "empire building" ever since the First World War. The Constitution authorizes government to provide for "national DE-fense", not "international OF-fense". If Americans were really interested in promoting our national safety, they would realize that a policy of constant foreign intervention directly undermines that stated goal. Our country has military forces stationed in 135 countries around the world, and we are influencing their governments and economies either directly or indirectly in every case. That is the political equivalent of poking them in the eye with a sharp stick. It is little wonder then that dozens of countries and millions of people around the world harbor more than a little resentment against us. The recent mutilation of American civilians is just the beginning of the violence that will be directed toward us if we do not bring our troops home where they belong.
I would not have known at the time, for I was too young to realize that I was supposed to have a live-in father, just as I was too young to know that I needed a race. From an improbably short span it seems that my father fell under the same spell as my mother and her parents; and for the first six years of my life, even as that spell was broken and the worlds that they thought they'd left behind reclaimed each of them, I occupied the place where their dreams had been.
