Top Rallies Quotes

Rallies Quotes By Julian Castro

Even though I grew up and I didn't always like getting dragged to the meetings or the rallies or the speeches, I developed a very strong respect for participating in a democratic process. — Julian Castro

Rallies Quotes By Andy Roddick

My aggression out there is my weapon. I think it's more letting them know that I'm not going to let them get away with something, and I'm not just going to kind of poke it back and be content to stay in rallies. — Andy Roddick

Rallies Quotes By E.B. White

Some of the published news was distorted, but distortion is inherent in partisan journalism, the same as it is in political rallies. — E.B. White

Rallies Quotes By Theresa May

I am willing to consider powers which would ban known hooligans from rallies and marches and I will look into the powers the police already have to force the removal of face coverings and balaclavas. — Theresa May

Rallies Quotes By Ralph Waldo Emerson

Life is in short cycles or periods; we are quickly tired, but we have rapid rallies. A man is spent by his work, starved, prostrate; he will not lift his hand to save his life; he can never think more. He sinks into deep sleep and wakes with renewed youth, with hope, courage, fertile in resources, and keen for daring adventure. — Ralph Waldo Emerson

Rallies Quotes By Timothy Snyder

Nazi storm troopers began as a security detail clearing the halls of Hitler's opponents during his rallies. As — Timothy Snyder

I think my character rallies people together to go out and drink. — Miles Teller

Rallies Quotes By Daniel Bruhl

My parents always went to rallies and demonstrated against certain things; my generation, we often have a political conscience, but we're not that involved. — Daniel Bruhl

Rallies Quotes By Bruce Bawer

But Friedan and Greer's movement had passed them by: rape hysteria became fully integrated into mainstream feminism, resulting in such events as the so-called Take Back the Night rallies at colleges around America, which are premised on the idea that when darkness falls over the quad, male students metamorphose, werewolf-like, into potential rapists. — Bruce Bawer

Rallies Quotes By Celestine Sibley

Being a reporter is one of the noblest things you can do in life. Letting the people know. It's really a holy cause. Time after time after time, in the middle of corruption and disgrace and bad politics, I've seen people come through and do for people. I write about someone in trouble and someone else rallies to help them. Through reporting, things can change. — Celestine Sibley

Rallies Quotes By Samantha Isler

I really miss things like going to football games and pep rallies, and when I come home to Tulsa, I always try to go to those things. — Samantha Isler

Rallies Quotes By Isaac Asimov

Clarke's First Law - Corollary: When, however, the lay public rallies round an idea that is denounced by distinguished but elderly scientists and supports that idea with great fervor and emotion - the distinguished but elderly scientists are then, after all, probably right. — Isaac Asimov

Rallies Quotes By Maiwenn

You can watch Chanel fashion shows and watch the news. Fortunately you don't have to choose. I always vote, I go to rallies, but I also go to fashion shows. — Maiwenn

Rallies Quotes By Helen Wills Moody

Balls should be good for at least six sets, and for more for the average player. But if the rallies are long, they do not last as long as this. There is a fuzz on the surface that wears off on the hard court. — Helen Wills Moody

Rallies Quotes By Mark Twain

But it is a blessed provision of nature that at times like these, as soon as a man's mercury has got down to a certain point there comes a revulsion, and he rallies. Hope springs up, and cheerfulness along with it, and then he is in good shape to do something for himself, if anything can be done. — Mark Twain

Rallies Quotes By Kathryn Stockett

And I know there are plenty of other "colored" things I could do besides telling my stories or going to Shirley Boon's meetings- the mass meetings in town, the marches in Birmingham, the voting rallies upstate. But truth is, I don't care that much about voting. I don't care about eating at a counter with white people. What I care about is, if in ten years, a white lady will call my girls dirty and accuse them of stealing the silver. — Kathryn Stockett

Rallies Quotes By Ron Chernow

For the remainder of the gubernatorial campaign, Hamilton issued open letters to the electorate, and at Clinton campaign rallies his essays were hurled under the table as marks of contempt. In shaping his final appeal to voters, Hamilton said that Clinton's most effective tactic was to single out the rich for abuse, and he warned that republicans scapegoated the rich to their detriment: "There is no stronger sign of combinations unfriendly to the general good than when the partisans of those in power raise an indiscriminate cry against men of property."26 — Ron Chernow

Rallies Quotes By Francis Atterbury

Luther deters me from solitariness; but he does not mean from a sober solitude that rallies our scattered strengths and prepares us against any new encounter from without. — Francis Atterbury

Rallies Quotes By Venus Williams

If you give me a short shot I will attack you. I'm not a baseliner who rallies. I try to get the point over with. — Venus Williams

Rallies Quotes By William Borah

There is nothing that dies so hard and rallies so often as intolerance. The vices and passions which it summons to its support are the most ruthless and the most persistent harbored in the human breast. They sometimes sleep but they never seem to die. Anything, any extraordinary situation, any unnecessary controversy, may light those fires again and plant in our republic that which has destroyed every republic which undertook to nurse it. — William Borah

Rallies Quotes By Ed Helms

My friend and I sang an a cappella rendition of Extreme's 'More Than Words' at one of our football pep rallies in a desperate attempt to look cool. For a while, I wore pink Converse All Stars because I thought it made me seem daring and irreverent. — Ed Helms

Rallies Quotes By Tim Heidecker

When I was a kid I went to Catholic school, and they used to drag us out to pro-life rallies and stuff full of crazy people. — Tim Heidecker

Rallies Quotes By Alfred North Whitehead

The defense of morals is the battle-cry which best rallies stupidity against change. — Alfred North Whitehead

Rallies Quotes By Alan Partridge

Sport, on the other hand, is straightforward. In badminton, if you win a rally, you get one point. In volleyball, if you win a rally, you get one point. In tennis, if you win a rally, you get 15 points for the first or second rallies you've won in that game, or 10 for the third, with an indeterminate amount assigned to the fourth rally other than the knowledge that the game is won, providing one player is two 10-point (or 15-point) segments clear of his opponent. It's clear and simple. — Alan Partridge

Rallies Quotes By Bjorn Borg

Tennis is a traditional game. A big sport like tennis does not need too many changes. The game has become too fast, there are hardly any long, interesting rallies these days. So maybe slowing down the courts could help. But you can't really stop a sport from evolving. — Bjorn Borg

Rallies Quotes By George Saunders

So many people mentioned this at these rallies. You go to these things and it's kind of like an oldies concert. I mean, it's not hostile. — George Saunders

Rallies Quotes By Todd M. Compton

To nineteenth-century leaders the principle was not just an optional revelation - they viewed it as the most important revelation in Joseph Smith's life, which is what he undoubtedly taught them. If they accepted him as an infallible prophet, and if they wanted full exaltation, they had no recourse but to marry many plural wives. Their devotion to Joseph the seer outweighed their experience of polygamy's impracticality and tragic consequences for women, which many men probably did not even recognize.

But it is worth noting that the women who suffered so much under polygamy gave it their unqualified support in public rallies and wrote impassioned defenses of it. They too were devoted to the idea that their church was led by practically infallible, authoritative prophets, especially Joseph Smith. — Todd M. Compton

Rallies Quotes By Og Mandino

The road to success, for me, was a long and arduous journey, strewn with obstacles and traps, pitfalls and hurdles-all created by myself. Painful as it is, I speak of those sad and frustrating times whenever I am invited to address sales gatherings, corporate conventions, and success rallies, in the hope that my personal experiences will serve as sufficient evidence for all who hear me that they have it in their own power to make their lives as glorious or as terrible as they choose. — Og Mandino

Rallies Quotes By Marco Rubio

There's never going to be a time where the Republican Party rallies around and says you have to get out or anyone has to get out for purposes of rallying around Donald Trump. — Marco Rubio

Rallies Quotes By Henry Newbolt

The sand of the desert is sodden red, --
Red with the wreck of a square that broke; --
The Gatling's jammed and the Colonel dead,
And the regiment blind with dust and smoke.
The river of death has brimmed his banks,
And England's far, and Honour a name,
But the voice of a schoolboy rallies the ranks:
'Play up! play up! and play the game! — Henry Newbolt

Rallies Quotes By Kwame Anthony Appiah

The Romantic state could pride itself on being the emanation of one Volk and its primordial
consciousness; the liberal state has to get by with a good deal less magic. The Romantic state
could boldly identify itself with a people's Will; liberal states must content themselves with a
general willingness. The romantic state rallies its citizens with a stirring cry: "One people!"
The liberal state's true anthem is: "We can work it out. — Kwame Anthony Appiah

Rallies Quotes By Alex London

Remaking the world wasn't always a stage show and a cheering crowd. Politics was just warfare by other means. The losers didn't get to hold rallies. — Alex London

Rallies Quotes By Mao Zedong

There should be celebration rallies when people die ... We believe in dialectics, and so we can't not be in favor of death. — Mao Zedong

Rallies Quotes By Arthur Scargill

Yet what you need is not marches, demonstrations, rallies or wide associations, all of them are important. What you need is direct action. The sooner people understand that, the sooner we'll begin to change things. — Arthur Scargill

Rallies Quotes By George Bernard Shaw

When a bishop at the first shot abandons the worship of Christ and rallies his flock round the altar of Mars, he may be acting patriotically ... but that does not justify him in pretending ... that Christ is, in effect, Mars. — George Bernard Shaw

Rallies Quotes By Trevor Noah

Nelson Mandela was in jail when I was really young, and Winnie Mandela was one of the biggest faces of the movement. In South Africa we have a common phrase - it's like a chant in the street and at rallies: "Wathint' abafazi, wathint' imbokodo." Which means, "You strike a woman, you strike a rock." — Trevor Noah

Rallies Quotes By Phil Ochs

One good song with a message can bring a point more deeply to more people than a thousand rallies. — Phil Ochs

Rallies Quotes By Amelie Mauresmo

My coach told me I had to expect, you know, some long rallies and stuff. So, you know, I was ready for this. — Amelie Mauresmo

Rallies Quotes By Emily Dickinson

Faith slips - and laughs, and ralliesEmily Dickinson

Rallies Quotes By Alice Walker

Today Americans, who used to feel welcomed wherever we went, travel abroad with trepidation. We know we are not trusted or liked, that we are even hated, by millions of people around the globe. We must ask ourselves why this is so and do the work of discovering our historical behavior toward the other countries and peoples of the planet. As disturbing as this will be, it is a first step toward a peaceful existence. Not because we can make peace for our country, but because we can make peace without ourselves by changing any harmful behavior or attitudes that contribute to our present predicament. Choose any country on the map that appears to hate America. Listen to what people are shouting at their rallies and read what their banners proclaim in the street. Sit with their anger until you can see America through their eyes... Remember that you, yourself, are America. The U.S. Behave as if you are the entire country and carry yourself with humility and dignity. — Alice Walker

Rallies Quotes By Tahereh Mafi

My eyes close in a subconscious effort to block out the bad memories, but the effort backfires. Protests. Rallies. Screams for survival. I see women and children starving to death, homes destroyed and buried in rubble, the countryside a burnt landscape, its only fruit the rotting flesh of casualties. I see dead dead dead red and burgundy and maroon and the richest shade of your mother's favorite lipstick all smeared into the earth. So much everything all the things dead. — Tahereh Mafi

Rallies Quotes By Roger Angell

Sports are too much with us. Late and soon, sitting and watching - mostly watching on television - we lay waste our powers of identification and enthusiasm and, in time, attention as more and more closing rallies and crucial putts and late field goals and final playoffs and sudden deaths and world records and world championships unreel themselves ceaselessly before our half-lidded eyes. — Roger Angell

Rallies Quotes By Hugh Masekela

I just came from South Africa, a place that had been in a perpetual uprising since 1653, so the uprising had become a way of life in our culture and we grew up with rallies and strikes and marches and boycotts. — Hugh Masekela

Rallies Quotes By Dean Wareham

I am interested in politics but have stayed away from writing overtly political songs, or message songs, because I find it difficult to discuss politics intelligently in a 4-minute song. But I am finding there are ways to get bits and pieces of political thought across without preaching that the people have the power or we shall not be moved. Of course these sentiments have their place too - I'm not knocking Phil Ochs - but that's a different kind of music, songs to play at rallies, not to achieve a state of bliss. — Dean Wareham

Rallies Quotes By Henry Ward Beecher

Nothing dies so hard, or rallies so often as intolerance. — Henry Ward Beecher

Rallies Quotes By Louis Navellier

If you go back to 2001, the market had two violent short covering rallies then, although I know the market didn't officially get going until March 2003. — Louis Navellier

Rallies Quotes By Brigitte Gabriel

Anyone who disagrees with radical Islamic propaganda is being attacked in the media, on college campuses, and at rallies countering events that promote the Islamic cause — Brigitte Gabriel

Rallies Quotes By Jill Sobule

I was very inspired by the videos of the crowds at the Palin rallies. — Jill Sobule

Rallies Quotes By Seth Klarman

Rather, risk is a perception in each investor's mind that results from analysis of the probability and amount of potential loss from an investment. If an exploratory oil well proves to be a dry hole, it is called risky. If a bond defaults or a stock plunges in price, they are called risky. But if the well is a gusher, the bond matures on schedule, and the stock rallies strongly, can we say they weren't risky when the investment after it is concluded than was known when it was made. — Seth Klarman

Rallies Quotes By Leslie Feinberg

What is the bedrock on which all of our diverse trans populations can build solidarity? The commitment to be the best fighters against each other's oppression. As our activist network grows into marches and rallies of hundreds of thousands, we will hammer out language that demonstrates the sum total of our movement as well as its component communities.

Unity depends on respect for diversity, no matter what tools of language are ultimately used. This is a very early stage for trans peoples with such diverse histories and blends of cultures to form community. Perhaps we don't have to strive to be one community. In reality, there isn't one women's, or lesbian, gay, bi community. What is realistic is the goal to build a coalition between our many strong communities in order to form a movement capable of defending all our lives. — Leslie Feinberg

Rallies Quotes By Bernard Goldberg

There are some programs on FOX that are not only fair and balanced, they're commentary shows. They don't have to be. But they brag about how fair and balanced they are. They don't cover rallies and tea parties. They cheer lead for rallies and tea parties. And as a journalist, I am totally against that. — Bernard Goldberg

Rallies Quotes By Bruce Kovner

In a bear market, you have to use sharp countertrend rallies to sell. — Bruce Kovner

Rallies Quotes By Charles Bukowski

That which interests most people leaves me without any interest at all. This includes a list of things such as: social dancing, riding roller coasters, going to zoos, picnics, movies, planetariums, watching tv, baseball games; going to funerals, weddings, parties, basketball games, auto races, poetry readings, museums, rallies, demonstrations, protests, children's plays, adult plays ... I am not interested in beaches, swimming, skiing, Christmas, New Year's, the 4th of July, rock music, world history, space exploration, pet dogs, soccer, cathedrals and great works of Art. How can a man who is interested in almost nothing write about anything? Well, I do. I write and I write about what's left over: a stray dog walking down the street, a wife murdering her husband, the thoughts and feelings of a rapist as he bites into a hamburger sandwich; life in the factory, life in the streets and rooms of the poor and mutilated and the insane, crap like that, I write a lot of crap like that — Charles Bukowski

Rallies Quotes By Frances Beinecke

Young people are already leading on climate action. I see it at rallies to reject the Keystone XL dirty tar sands pipeline. I see it in the push to demand justice for communities being run over by fracking operations. — Frances Beinecke

Rallies Quotes By Gillian Kendall

he was also banned even from engaging in conversation with two or more persons. He could not legally go to a child's birthday party any more than he could attend political ralliesGillian Kendall

Rallies Quotes By George Takei

I was doing a civil rights musical here in Los Angeles, and we sang at one of the rallies where Dr. Martin Luther King spoke, and I remember the thrill I felt when we were introduced to him. To have him shake your hand was an absolutely unforgettable experience. — George Takei

Rallies Quotes By Scarlett Thomas

I'd been pleased to find there was an alternative to the other stuff, which all reminded me of advertisements containing people with perfect teeth, heroic expressions and offspring that looked like they were on their way to Hitler youth rallies. — Scarlett Thomas

Rallies Quotes By Dax Shepard

I think I'm a combination of very simple pleasures and the fact I've read a lot of books. I don't think it's a binary opposition across the board in humans and I think I'm an example that it's not. I'm hosting gay marriage rallies and I have tons of guns at home. There's a lot of middle ground in the world and I'm one of those people. — Dax Shepard

Rallies Quotes By Monica Crowley

Ann Romney has been front-and-center. She's held a lot of town halls, a lot of campaign rallies, on her own, separate from her husband. And she is dynamite out on the campaign trail. — Monica Crowley

Rallies Quotes By Matthew Quick

How did high schools all over the country decide that athletes needed pep rallies to boost their pride and self-esteem? Isn't it enough that people actually pay money to see these kids compete in games? That people cheer from the sidelines? And they get their names in the paper? Why don't they take all the lonely ghost floaters in every high school and have a pep rally for them? Make all the most popular kids in school sit on the hard bleachers and cheer until their asses hurt like hell? — Matthew Quick

Rallies Quotes By Lewis Black

Glenn Beck is offended! Glenn Beck thinks playing the Nazi card is going too far. Glenn Beck. this is a guy who uses more Swastika props and video of the Nuremberg rallies than the History Channel. — Lewis Black

Rallies Quotes By Charles Z. David

Ollie was soon invited to attend public rallies and private meetings in which the crowd called for the expulsion of all foreigners from Sweden calling them parasites that sucked money and health benefits from the social security system. In fact, most of the protestors and demonstrators themselves lived on social security money while most of the immigrants were gainfully employed and paid their taxes regularly. But these facts were irrelevant since prejudice and xenophobia were dominant. — Charles Z. David

Rallies Quotes By Penn Jillette

I, my own damn self, am not a Tea Party supporter. I disagree with them on social liberties, our overseas wars, Obama's birthplace, Sarah Palin, and the conspicuous absence of tea at their rallies. — Penn Jillette

Rallies Quotes By Frank Zappa

Drop out of school before your mind rots from exposure to our mediocre educational system. Forget about the Senior Prom and go to the library and educate yourself if you've got any guts. Some of you like Pep rallies and plastic robots who tell you what to read. — Frank Zappa

Rallies Quotes By Cybill Shepherd

I did many interviews, and went out and talked to many people and went to rallies. It was the same thing with menopause. I traveled around the country on talk shows and talking to women about. — Cybill Shepherd

Rallies Quotes By Raven-Symone

I went to public school, elementary through high school. I went to homecoming, to football games, pep rallies, I got detention, I got an F. I've done it all. — Raven-Symone

Rallies Quotes By Richard Posner

It is the censor's business to make a judgment about the propriety of the content or message of the proposed expressive activity. The regulation here does not authorize any judgment about the content of any speeches ... A park is a limited space, and to allow unregulated access to all comers could easily reduce rather than enlarge the park's utility as a forum for speech. Just imagine two rallies held at the same time in the same park area using public-address systems that drowned out each other's speakers. — Richard Posner

Rallies Quotes By Ari Shapiro

Mitt Romney's rally in Mansfield, Ohio, on Monday began the way every political event begins. 'Please stand for the Pledge of Allegiance and our country's national anthem.' This is always an uncomfortable moment for me. While I sat at my laptop, most of the reporters around me stood and put their hands over their hearts. This time instead of just sitting and working, I tweeted what I was feeling: 'Ari_Shapiro: As a reporter I'm torn about joining in the pledge of allegiance/national anthem at rallies. I'm a rally observer, not a participant.' — Ari Shapiro

Rallies Quotes By Tim Kreider

But then anytime you join in a mass movement you're going to find yourself standing alongside idiots. One reason people go to mass rallies is to become stupider and surer of themselves than they are when they're alone. — Tim Kreider

Rallies Quotes By Dave Winer

Net neutrality is a concept that the tech industry rallies around, but it is hypocrisy. — Dave Winer

Rallies Quotes By Henry Louis Gates

The sad truth is that the civil rights movement cannot be reborn until we identify the causes of black suffering, some of them self-inflicted. Why can't black leaders organize rallies around responsible sexuality, birth within marriage, parents reading to their children and students staying in school and doing homework? — Henry Louis Gates

Rallies Quotes By Rosalind Wiseman

Communicating a passionate response to world events is no longer limited to protests and rallies. — Rosalind Wiseman

Rallies Quotes By Jesse Helms

We are now considering legislation based on statistics that include name-calling at public rallies as crimes. Are we going on to the school yards of this country and when two kids get angry with each other and call each other names
what are we going to do, cart them over to the reformatory or add them to the list of 'hate crimes' perpetrators? This is ridiculous. — Jesse Helms

Rallies Quotes By Edwin Black

Fifty-thousand were gathered (March,27th,1933) in and around Madison Square Garden, supportive rallies were at that moment waiting in Chicago, Washington, San Francisco, Houston, and about seven other American cities. At each supportive rally, thousands huddled around loudspeakers waiting for the Garden event, which would be broadcast live via radio to 200 additional cities across the country. At least 1 million Jews were participating nationwide. Perhaps another million Americans of non-Jewish descent heritage stood with them. — Edwin Black

Rallies Quotes By Marianne Williamson

I'm proud to say I was part of a movement in which we sang 'All You Need Is Love' at political rallies. — Marianne Williamson

Rallies Quotes By Ben Wikler

There is a question as to whether these rallies [2016] are going to stop in the fall. I think they should continue. They are a tremendous display of energy but also a source of energy, because people come out of them ready to fight. — Ben Wikler

Rallies Quotes By James Rosone

In time, the media was fawning over Henry Stein like Barack Obama in 2008; he represented something different. Governor Stein began holding FP rallies across the country, attracting tens of thousands of supporters, waving signs and willing to plaster their entire neighborhoods with as much propaganda as they could get their hands on. After winning two terms as governor in Florida, it became inevitable that he should be a candidate for President of the United States in 2036. Henry — James Rosone

Rallies Quotes By Rick Perlstein

Ronald Reagan never did much to make abortion illegal. He did, however, deliver videotaped greetings, fulsome in praise for his hosts, to antiabortion rallies on the Mall. — Rick Perlstein

Rallies Quotes By Azar Nafisi

But I spoke passionately at the rallies; inspired by phrases I had read in novels and poems, I would weave words together into sounds of revolution. — Azar Nafisi

Rallies Quotes By Robert Leckie

It is an American weakness. The success becomes the sage. Scientists counsel on civil liberty; comedians and actresses lead political rallies; athletes tell us what brand of cigarette to smoke. — Robert Leckie

Rallies Quotes By K.d. Lang

I don't consider my homosexuality a political thing. I consider it a sexual and spiritual thing. I only started going to political rallies to meet women. — K.d. Lang

Rallies Quotes By Birch Bayh

In fact, I really didn't get enthused about his Secretary of State race until I attended a couple of his rallies and found out there were a bunch of young folks that there were a bunch of young folks that he had been able to recruit on his own. — Birch Bayh

Rallies Quotes By Aaron Koblin

I've found that when everyone rallies behind a cause, and when they learn their effort can contribute something bigger, they get engaged. — Aaron Koblin

Rallies Quotes By Edwidge Danticat

My head fills up with images of past gatherings there: pep rallies, award ceremonies, talent shows, speaker days, career days, holiday pageants, all things that Isabelle and I attended together, even while sitting in different parts of the auditorium with our own sets of friends. — Edwidge Danticat

Rallies Quotes By Donald Trump

On my radio show Chris Christie came to the defense of Ted Cruz, noting that - I guess at a rally, that - one of those Iran rallies on Capitol Hill, I believe even Donald Trump, according to Christie, had acknowledged that, you know, Ted Cruz of course was eligible, and just because he was born in Canada. — Donald Trump

Rallies Quotes By Scott Westerfeld

Battered by the mind noise, huddled in the back with eyes closed and fists clenched, the old Melissa had understood pep rallies about as well as a bird sucked through a jet engine comprehended aircraft design. — Scott Westerfeld

Rallies Quotes By Jim Rogers

According to the media and other stock market "experts," the equities bull is forever hiding just around that next corner on Wall Street. But millions of investors who listened to the experts back in 1998-2001 about "the New Economy" get hammered in the stock market and are still trying to get back to even.
The smart investor looks for opportunities to acquire value on the cheap, with one eye out for a dynamic change in the offing that might make that investment even more valuable. — Jim Rogers
