Top Responsibility To Protect Quotes

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Doris Kearns Goodwin

This, then, is a story of Lincoln's political genius revealed through his extraordinary array of personal qualities that enabled him to form friendships with men who had previously opposed him; to repair injured feelings that, left untended, might have escalated into permanent hostility; to assume responsibility for the failures of subordinates; to share credit with ease; and to learn from mistakes. He possessed an acute understanding of the sources of power inherent in the presidency, an unparalleled ability to keep his governing coalition intact, a tough-minded appreciation of the need to protect his presidential prerogatives, and a masterful sense of timing. — Doris Kearns Goodwin

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Chris Lutz

Any feeling of security is only in your head. Anything could happen at any time. As long as you are strictly someone's employee at one company, you're a liability on the balance sheet. I say that as a business owner. We cannot trust any government to provide us with what we need, nor is that its responsibility. We cannot trust most employers either. Insulate yourself with multiple incomes either from different companies or by working for yourself in addition to one main source of income. Diversify and protect yourself. - Chris Lutz, Modular Career Design — Chris Lutz

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Katharine Ashe

There was such emotion in his eyes now, she felt as though her insides were pressing on her ribcage and twisting in her middle. For years she had thought him a stranger. Now, here, on this road by uncertain light she saw again such acute feeling in the beautiful eyes of the boy she had once adored. She let herself look at his arm so firmly about the little girl, a child he barely knew yet felt the responsibility to protect, and something hard and encrusted inside her shattered. — Katharine Ashe

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Jan Brewer

And now, since I've been governor since last January, I have written numerous letters to the administration in regards to securing our borders with absolutely no response. So we have been facing this crisis, and it's devastating the people of Arizona. And I feel as governor I have a responsibility to protect the citizens. — Jan Brewer

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Robert Kennedy

The most significant civil rights problem is voting. Each citizen's right to vote is fundamental to all the other rights of citizenship and the Civil Rights Acts of 1957 and 1960 make it the responsibility of the Department of Justice to protect that right. — Robert Kennedy

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Tony Abbott

Should we choose to extend our airstrikes into Syria, we will be doing this in the collective self-defence of Iraq. We would be doing this out of a responsibility to protect innocent people at risk of horrible death from the most violent people imaginable.Should we choose to extend our airstrikes into Syria, we will be doing this in the collective self-defence of Iraq. We would be doing this out of a responsibility to protect innocent people at risk of horrible death from the most violent people imaginable. — Tony Abbott

As an elder of the Americas and of the rest of the planet, it is my responsibility to care for and protect, to the best of my ability, the young. — Alice Walker

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Wes Jackson

Our task is to build cultural fortresses to protect our emerging nativeness. They must be strong enough to hold at bay the powers of consumerism, the powers of greed and envy and pride. One of the most effective ways for this to come about would be for our universities to assume the awesome responsibility to both validate and educate those who want to be homecomers
not necessarily to go home but to go someplace and dig in and begin the long search and experiment to become native. — Wes Jackson

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Ai Weiwei

I think it's a responsibility for any artist to protect freedom of expression and to use any way to extend this power. — Ai Weiwei

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Simon Sinek

We become leaders when we accept the responsibility to protect those in our care. — Simon Sinek

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Jon Katz

When people buy, rescue, or otherwise acquire a dog from unscrupulous breeders or amateur rescue groups, they are making a decision with ethical consequences. They have a profound responsibility to consider their actions; to gauge the dog's behavior, to train it thoroughly and rigorously, to protect other humans and dogs from harm. — Jon Katz

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Vint Cerf

The government has a responsibility to protect society, to help maintain society. That's why we have laws ... The rule of law creates a set of standards for our behavior. — Vint Cerf

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Ronald Reagan

You are worried about what man has done and is doing to this magical planet that God gave us. And I share your concern. What is a conservative after all but one who conserves, one who is committed to protecting and holding close the things by which we live ... And we want to protect and conserve the land on which we live - our countryside, our rivers and mountains, our plains and meadows and forests. This is our patrimony. This is what we leave to our children. And our great moral responsibility is to leave it to them either as we found it or better than we found it. — Ronald Reagan

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Dalai Lama

I felt we must separate political responsibility. The Dalai Lama should not carry that burden. So that is my selfish reason - to protect the old Dalai Lama tradition. It is safer without political involvement. — Dalai Lama

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Bart Gordon

Broadcasters have a responsibility to serve the public interest and protect Americans from objectionable content, particularly during the hours when children are likely to be watching. — Bart Gordon

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Jennifer Granholm

America is an idea. And it's the solemn responsibility of each 'temporary' president to protect and nurture that noblest of all ideas - with integrity. This man, Mitt Romney, has shown - not through his experience, but through his actions and words - that he is unqualified to carry out that responsibility. — Jennifer Granholm

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By E.L. Doctorow

Somehow he had catapulted himself beyond the world's value system. But this very fact lay upon him an awesome responsibility to maintain the illusions of other men. — E.L. Doctorow

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Tim Cook

If those of us in positions of responsibility fail to do everything in our power to protect the right of privacy, we risk something far more valuable than money. We risk our way of life ... Fortunately, technology gives us the tools to avoid these risks. It is my sincere hope that by using them and by working together, we will. — Tim Cook

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Viktor E. Frankl

Shortly before the United States entered World War II, I received an invitation to come to the American Consulate in Vienna to pick up my immigration visa. My old parents were overjoyed because they expected that I would soon be allowed to leave Austria. I suddenly hesitated, however. The question beset me: could I really afford to leave my parents alone to face their fate, to be sent, sooner or later, to a concentration camp, or even to a so-called extermination camp? Where did my responsibility lie? Should I foster my brain child, logotherapy, by emigrating to fertile soil where I could write my books? Or should I concentrate on my duties as a real child, the child of my parents who had to do whatever he could to protect them? — Viktor E. Frankl

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Brandon Sanderson

Overcome your guilt. Care, but not too much. Take responsibility, but don't blame yourself. Protect, save, help- but know when to give up. They're precarious ledges to walk. How do I do it? — Brandon Sanderson

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Jim Clyburn

We have a moral responsibility to protect the earth and ensure that our children and grandchildren have a healthy and sustainable environment in which to live. — Jim Clyburn

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Dalai Lama

My responsibility is to save Tibet, to protect its ancient cultural heritage. — Dalai Lama

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Anne Katherine

Your greatest obligation in your use of time is to yourself, so that you are filling the days of your life with the pursuits and activities that reflect your deepest values. Time boundaries protect these pursuits, creating the limits that allow you to interact most fully with what matters to you. When we clutter our lives with imagined obligations, unnecessary activities, and distractions that only kill time, we dilute the power of our lives. You have the ultimate responsibility for the use of your time. At the end of your life, none of the excuses or defenses will matter. What will matter is that you spent your time on the experiences you wanted to have. — Anne Katherine

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Sabrina Jeffries

Meanwhile, Blakeborough placed himself behind them like a guard. The investigator in Dom went to work analyzing the man's attire--expensive but not ostentatious, studied but not affected--and Blakeborough's wary stance, closed manner, and stiff expression. Was that just his usual response to strangers or a sign that he was bracing for trouble about his brother? Which could mean he was well aware of Barlow's scheme.
But the man in Dom noticed none of that. It just wanted to march over and punch bloody Blakeborough in his perfect, unscarred face for being too rich, too eligible, and too thoroughly engaged to Jane. The man in him wanted to throttle the earl for standing guard over Jane when she should be Dom's responsibility. Dom's to protect. Dom's to marry.
The man in him had to shut up, unfortunately. Or this investigation wouldn't progress very far. — Sabrina Jeffries

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By James Patterson

Save your world. Love it. Protect it, and respect it and don't let haters represent it.
Don't leave the saving to anyone else, ever, because, exhibit A - why, hello there - it's way too much for one person. And if you want to skip out on the responsibility train, my whole life - and death - will have been in vain.
It's yours. It's all yours for taking!
You're not going to waste it now, are you? — James Patterson

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Eric Weiner

The biophilia hypothesis is not your run-of-the-mill Berkeley/Al Gore/Eat Your Spinach environmentalism. It does not appeal directly to our sense of stewardship or responsibility. It appeals to a much more base, and common, human proclivity: selfishness. It says, in effect, protect the environment because it will make you happy. For a country like the United States, with the word "happiness" in its founding document, you'd think environmentalists would have latched on to biophilia a long time ago. — Eric Weiner

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Brooke Hampton

As mamas, papas, grandparents, teachers, and caregivers we have a responsibility to protect these little earth warriors. It's our job to protect and nurture their love, their innocence, their spirits, their imagination, their gifts, their health and wellbeing, their spirituality, their confidence, their character, their freedom of thought, their instincts, their wildness, and their magic! There is nothing we can do in this lifetime that will compare to the importance of this work. These little ones are our future. Guard them well!! — Brooke Hampton

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Winona LaDuke

Water is life. We are the people who live by the water. Pray by these waters. Travel by the waters. Eat and drink from these waters. We are related to those who live in the water. To poison the waters is to show disrespect for creation. To honor and protect the waters is our responsibility as people of the land. — Winona LaDuke

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Janet Evanovich

I understand why you do your job," my mother said to me. "There's a sense of accomplishment when you take down someone bad. It's like being a police officer or being in the Army or being a mother. You have a responsibility to protect and keep order, and you do whatever it takes to get that done. — Janet Evanovich

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Max Hastings

There was no doubt that in the early and mid-eighties that many of us in broadsheet newspapers felt that we still had a responsibility to try to protect the Royal Family or if you like protect the Monarchy from the assaults of the media. — Max Hastings

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Mary Taylor Young

Remember that even just watching animals has an impact. Intrusion into their living space can expose them to predation, keep them from feeding or other essential activities, or cause them to leave their young exposed to predation or the elements. No photo or viewing opportunity is worth harassing or stressing wildlife. In appreciating and watching them, we have a responsibility to protect and preserve the animals that share our state. — Mary Taylor Young

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Bob Etheridge

The federal government has a responsibility to protect all Americans from potential terrorist attack. — Bob Etheridge

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Lynn Margulis

Life is a planetary level phenomonon and the Earth has been alive for at least 3000 million years. To me the human move to take responsibility for the living Earth is laughable - the rhethoric of the powerless. The planet takes care of us, not we of it. Our self inflated moral imperative to guide a wayward Earth or heal a sick planet is evidence of our immense capacity for self-delusion. Rather, we need to protect us from ourselves. — Lynn Margulis

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By John Piper

At the heart of mature masculinity is a sense of benevolent responsibility to lead, provide for, and protect women in ways appropriate to man's differing relationships. — John Piper

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Joe Manchin

I would never abdicate, nor would I expect any other governor to abdicate, the responsibility to protect the people of my state. — Joe Manchin

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Jay Nixon

While we all respect the solemn responsibility of our law enforcement officers to protect the public, we must also safeguard the rights of Missourians to peaceably assemble and the rights of the press to report on matters of public concern. — Jay Nixon

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Martin Luther King Jr.

Yet the average white person also has a responsibility. He has to resist the impulse to seize upon the rioter as the exclusive villain. He has to rise up with indignation against his own municipal, state and national governments to demand that the necessary reforms be instituted which alone will protect him. If he reserves his resentment only for the Negro, he will be the victim by allowing those who have the greatest culpability to evade responsibility. — Martin Luther King Jr.

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Kailash Satyarthi

First of all, everyone must acknowledge and feel that child slavery still exists in the world, in its ugliest face and form. And this is an evil, which is crime against humanity, which is intolerable, which is unacceptable and which must go. That sense of recognition must be developed first of all. And secondly there is a need of higher amounts of political will. There is a need of higher amount of corporate engagement, and the engagement of the public towards it. So, everybody has a responsibility to save and protect the children on this planet. — Kailash Satyarthi

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Nicole Sobon

Body went tense, forcing goose bumps to rise over my bare arms. My tough demeanor had been ripped apart and was replaced by a frightened little girl in need of her father's protection. But he wasn't here, and all I had was Jeremy. It wasn't his responsibility to protect me. He shouldn't have to worry about me.
And I shouldn't be falling apart like this. — Nicole Sobon

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Ted Nugent

How many more times are we going to cower under tables and chairs, whimpering like mindless dogs, thinking that someone else has the responsibility to save and protect us? — Ted Nugent

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Paul Watson

I feel that we have a responsibility to try to do everything we can to protect species, and the best way to do that is to uphold international conservation law. — Paul Watson

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By John Lynch

We have a responsibility as a state to protect our most vulnerable citizens: our children, seniors, people with disabilities. That is our moral obligation. But there is an economic justification too - we all pay when the basic needs of our citizens are unmet. — John Lynch

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Veronika Gasparyan

I couldn't comprehend why she still hadn't stopped him because it's clearly every mother's responsibility to protect her children. After all, that's the trust that bonds a mother and her child together, forever — Veronika Gasparyan

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Ana Castillo

Protect him, yes, with my life; spare him of learning responsibility and to take care of himself, no. During — Ana Castillo

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By James Williams

Every man is responsible for defending every woman and every child. When the male no longer takes this role, when he no longer has the courage or feels the moral responsibility, then that society will no longer be a society where honor and virtue are esteemed. Laws and government cannot replace this personal caring and commitment. In the absence of the Warrior protector, the only way that a government can protect a society is to remove the freedom of the people. And the sons and daughters of lions become sheep. — James Williams

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Ralph Moody

Son, there are times a man has to do things he doesn't like to, in order to protect his family. — Ralph Moody

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Vito Fossella

We know that the most fundamental responsibility of our Federal Government is to ensure the safety of its people and to protect and ensure our National security. And clearly port security has been left in limbo. — Vito Fossella

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Sunday Adelaja

We laugh and jest at what we call "street boys or area boys" instead of thinking of what we could do, to get them occupied or send them to school and create work opportunities for them. We rather choose to build walls around our compounds, electrocuted fences to protect out interest and personal comfort. That only shows lack of Personal Responsibility. — Sunday Adelaja

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Jane Velez-Mitchell

There is a severe horse overpopulation crisis caused by overbreeding in the racing industry. It's time for that industry to accept responsibility for its castoffs and take dramatic action to protect a species that has so loyally served humankind. — Jane Velez-Mitchell

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Debbie Stabenow

As a Michigan senator, I feel a special responsibility to protect the Great Lakes. They are not only a source of clean drinking water for more than 30 million people but are also an integral part of Michigan's heritage and its economy. — Debbie Stabenow

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Sherrilyn Kenyon

You owe me this. You made me get rid of my assassin and now I have no control over those creatures that - "
That you created," he added, interrupting her angry tirade. "Don't forget the important part here. The Dark-Hunters wouldn't exist at all had someone, and for the sake of your missing intellect let me clarify that, you, not stolen powers from me that could bring back the dead. I didn't need the Dark-Hunters to help me fight against the Daimons and protect the humans. I was doing fine on my own. But you wouldn't have it. You created them and made me responsible for their lives. It's a responsibility that I take most seriously, so excuse me for banning you from killing them because you have reverse PMS."
She scowled. "Reverse PMS?"
Yeah, unlike a normal woman, you're cranky twenty-eight days out of the month. — Sherrilyn Kenyon

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Bill Shuster

Our first responsibility is to protect the American people and we cannot put on blinders to expect that everyone who seeks asylum does so in good faith. — Bill Shuster

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Mystery

Persistence - This is another way to relieve her of any responsibility for what is happening. Of course, don't confuse persistence with begging, arguing, or being pushy, needy, or creepy. All it means is don't give up too easily. Girls may test you to find out how easily you throw in the towel - they want to gauge your self-confidence. Just assume that she is giving a little token resistance, and continue. If she didn't resist at least a little bit, she would feel like a slut - and that's not going to happen. And if you can't take her crap, how in the world are you going to protect her from other people's crap?
This can be tricky - an overly aggressive man might misinterpret all resistance as being merely token and could eventually find himself facing a rape charge. However, a man who isn't persistence enough will acquiesce every time a women resists, when in may cases she was secretly hoping he could be a little more forceful. — Mystery

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Terry Tempest Williams

I think it could be argued that I am not heard, in the broadest sense. That is not my concern. My concern, a question really, is, do I have the courage to speak? If I speak I believe someone will respond. It then becomes my responsibility to listen to that person. And in listening, together we create a space where people can be heard. It's the conversation that I care most deeply about; this is the space I want to honor, respect, and protect. This is my faith in the open space of democracy. — Terry Tempest Williams

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Joy Adamson

Since we humans have the better brain, isn't it our responsibility to protect our fellow creatures from, oddly enough, ourselves? — Joy Adamson

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Milton Friedman

The free man will ask neither what his country can do for him nor what he can do for his country. He will ask rather 'What can I and my compatriots do through government' to help us discharge our individual responsibilities, to achieve our several goals and purposes, and above all, to protect our freedom? — Milton Friedman

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By John Steinbeck

Cathy's lies were never innocent. Their purpose was to escape punishment, or work, or responsibility, and they were used for profit. Most liars are tripped up either because they forget what they have told or because the lie is suddenly faced with an incontrovertible truth. But Cathy did not forget her lies, and she developed the most effective method of lying. She stayed close enough to the truth so that one could never be sure. She knew two other methods also
either to interlard her lies with truth or to tell a truth as though it were a lie. If one is accused of a lie and it turns out to be the truth, there is a backlog that will last a long time and protect a number of untruths. — John Steinbeck

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Dorothy Dunnett

He will not, I think, find it logical to live with what he has done today. I have told him that you are his responsibility. While he believes that, he will continue to protect you. I tell you this, so that you will understand what is happening. He will measure his life by your helplessness. — Dorothy Dunnett

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Douglas Alexander

Our responsibility is to protect people and help them into work. — Douglas Alexander

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Sherry Argov

The nice girl loses an important protective mechanism when she assumes that life is fair, or that Prince Charming will always protect her. The smart fox is not governed by wishful thinking or the hope of a fantasy outcome, like Cinderella. Despite appearances, she trusts herself to watch her OWN back instead of giving a man the responsibility of doing it for her. — Sherry Argov

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Bernie Sanders

The Federal Reserve has the responsibility to protect the credit rights of consumers. — Bernie Sanders

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Ai Weiwei

For artists and intellectuals today, what is most needed is to be clear about social responsibility, because that is what most people automatically give up. Just to protect yourself as an individual is very political. You don't have to march on Tiananmen, but you do have to be clear-minded, to find your own means of expression. — Ai Weiwei

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Thomas Cushman

[T]hose who are in a position of strength have a responsibility to protect the weak. — Thomas Cushman

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Loretta Lynch

We all have a responsibility to protect endangered species, both for their sake and for the sake of our own future generations. — Loretta Lynch

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Habeeb Akande

A righteous husband is a responsible husband. — Habeeb Akande

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Pope Francis

The Church is likewise conscious of the responsibility which all of us have for our world, for the whole of creation, which we must love and protect. There is much that we can do to benefit the poor, the needy and those who suffer, and to favour justice, promote reconciliation and build peace. But before all else we need to keep alive in our world the thirst for the absolute, and to counter the dominance of a one-dimensional vision of the human person, a vision which reduces human beings to what they produce and to what they consume: this is one of the most insidious temptations of our time. — Pope Francis

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Hortense Odlum

Not rarely, and this is especially true of wives and mothers, the motive behind assuming a disproportionate share of work and responsibility is completely unselfish. We want to protect, to spare those of whom we are fond. We forget that, regardless of the motive, the results of such action are almost always destructive and unproductive. — Hortense Odlum

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By George Lakoff

Mature citizens have to sink or swim by themselves. Citizens are on their own and have to prove their responsibility and self-reliance. They have become the leaders in their own family units (or local communities). They have to, and are competent to, make their own decisions. They have to protect themselves and their families (or communities). They know what is good for them better than their government, which is distant from them. A good government does not meddle or interfere in their lives. Any governmental meddling or interfering is strongly resented. Here — George Lakoff

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Li Bingbing

We do have responsibilities, as we live on this planet. It is our one and only home, which we are obligated to protect, to keep as beautiful and harmonious as it is. It is really for everyone to do so, including you and me. — Li Bingbing

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Jan Brewer

It's the federal government's responsibility to secure our borders. We passed Senate Bill 1070 as another tool in order to protect the citizens of Arizona. We have over 500,000 illegal immigrants living in Arizona. And we simply cannot sustain it. — Jan Brewer

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Barack Obama

A number of countries, including some who have loudly criticized the NSA, privately acknowledge that America has special responsibilities as the world's only superpower, that our intelligence capabilities are critical to meeting these responsibilities, and that they themselves have relied on the information we obtain to protect their own people. — Barack Obama

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By LaShawnda Jones

We each own our own happiness.
My contentment is no one else's responsibility.
My joy is mine to protect and nourish.
If we are incapable of reaching inward and embracing that which makes us happy, then perhaps we don't deserve it. But if we find our joy, we should be diligent to pursue it, cultivate it and share it. — LaShawnda Jones

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Silvan Shalom

We have the responsibility to protect our people and that's why we're building this fence. We've suffered from 19,000 terrorist attacks during the last three years. — Silvan Shalom

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Brandon Sanderson

Overcome your guilt, Kaladin. Care, but not too much. Take responsibility, but don't blame yourself.' Protect, save, help - but know when to give up. — Brandon Sanderson

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Ben Bernanke

It is not the responsibility of the Federal Bank - nor would it be appropriate - to protect lenders and investors from the consequences of their decisions — Ben Bernanke

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Tariq Ramadan

Man is certainly free, but he is responsible for this freedom before God as before men. This responsibility is inevitably moral. In order of this morality, to be free is to protect the freedom of others and their dignities. — Tariq Ramadan

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By John Polanyi

Though neglectful of their responsibility to protect science, scientists are increasingly aware of their responsibility to society. — John Polanyi

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Henry Cloud

Being created in God's image also means having ownership, or stewardship. As Adam and Eve were given dominion over the earth to subdue and rule it, we are also given stewardship over our time, energy, talents, values, feelings, behavior, money, and all the other things mentioned in chapter 2. Without a "mine," we have no sense of responsibility to develop, nurture, and protect these resources. Without a "mine," we have no self to give to God and his kingdom. — Henry Cloud

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Madeleine L'Engle

We can surely no longer pretend that our children are growing up into a peaceful, secure, and civilized world. We've come to the point where it's irresponsible to try to protect them from the irrational world they will have to live in when they grow up. The children themselves haven't yet isolated themselves by selfishness and indifference; they do not fall easily into the error of despair; they are considerably braver than most grownups. Our responsibility to them is not to pretend that if we don't look, evil will go away, but to give them weapons against it. — Madeleine L'Engle

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Andy Stanley

As a leader it is your job to protect the missional integrity of the Jesus gathering to which you have been called. It is your responsibility to see to it that the church under your care continues as a gathering of people in process; a place where the curious,the unconvinced, the sceptical, the used-to-believe and the broken, as well as the committed, informed and sold-out come together around Peter's declaration that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God. — Andy Stanley

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Joel Henry Hildebrand

We must protect each other against the attacks of those self-appointed watchdogs of patriotism now abroad in the land who irresponsibly pin red labels on anyone whom they wish to destroy ... [Academic professionals are the only person competant to differentiate between honest independents and the Communists.] This is our responsibility. It is not a pleasant task. But if it is left to outsiders, the distinction is not likely to be made and those independent critics of social institutions among us who are one of the glories of a true university could be silenced. — Joel Henry Hildebrand

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Pamela A. Matson

We share this planet with many species. It is our responsibility to protect them, both for their sakes and our own. — Pamela A. Matson

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Mohith Agadi

Environment is no one's property to destroy; it's everyone's responsibility to protect. — Mohith Agadi

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Elizabeth Warren

Our number one responsibility is to protect Americans from terrorism, that's our job, so being tough on terrorism is enormously important. — Elizabeth Warren

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By John F. Kennedy

Harry Truman once said, 'There are 14 or 15 million Americans who have the resources to have representatives in Washington to protect their interests, and that the interests of the great mass of the other people - the 150 or 160 million - is the responsibility of the president of the United States, and I propose to fulfill it.' — John F. Kennedy

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Yvon Chouinard

You have a whole life in the outdoors, you realize you have a sense of responsibility to protect these wild places. — Yvon Chouinard

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By D.R. Ranshaw

Because what you and others like you have forgotten or never known is that the responsibility of the strong is to nurture and protect the weak, not take advantage. — D.R. Ranshaw

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Jeremy Corbyn

Labour has the responsibility to give a lead where the government will not. We need to bring people together, hold the government to account, oppose austerity and set out a path to exit that will protect jobs and incomes. — Jeremy Corbyn

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Michael Scott

Often the greatest act of courage is admitting that one has made a mistake ... Follow your hearts. Protect one another, trust one another, because, at the end of the day, all of these people want something from you, or want you to do something for them, or be something that you are not. Your own responsibility is to one another. — Michael Scott

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Raymond Kelly

The NYPD has too urgent a mission and too few officers for us to waste time and resources on broad, unfocused surveillance. We have a responsibility to protect New Yorkers from violent crime or another terrorist attack - and we uphold the law in doing so. — Raymond Kelly

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By J. Aleksandr Wootton

The great risk of living is that we might not survive it. — J. Aleksandr Wootton

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Giorgio Napolitano

It is a responsibility we perceive from the entire international community to protect the stability of the single currency as well as the European frame work. — Giorgio Napolitano

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Margaret Heffernan

Money is just one of the forces that blind us to information and issues which we could pay attention to - but don't. It exacerbates and often rewards all the other drivers of willful blindness; our preference for the familiar, our love for individuals and for big ideas, a love of busyness and our dislike of conflict and change, the human instinct to obey and conform and our skill at displacing and diffusing responsibility. All of these operate and collaborate with varying intensities at different moments in our lives. The common denominator is that they all make us protect our sense of self-worth, reducing dissonance and conferring a sense of security, however illusory. In some ways, they all act like money; making us feel good at first, with consequences we don't see. We wouldn't be so blind if our blindness didn't deliver rewards; the benefit of comfort and ease. — Margaret Heffernan

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Sophia Lyon Fahs

We are resolved to protect individual freedom of belief. This freedom must include the child as well as the parent. The freedom for which we stand is not freedom of belief as we please, ... not freedom to evade responsibility, ... but freedom to be honest in speech and action, freedom to respect one's own integrity of thought and feeling, freedom to question, to investigate, to try, to understand life and the universe in which life abounds, freedom to search anywhere and everywhere to find the meaning of Being, freedom to experiment with new ways of living that seem better than the old. — Sophia Lyon Fahs

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Ann Clwyd

Genocide is the responsibility of the entire world. — Ann Clwyd

Responsibility To Protect Quotes By Anne Bishop

It is easier to kill than to heal. It is easier to destroy than to preserve. It is easier to tear down than to build. Those who feed on destructive emotions and ambitions and deny the responsibilities that are the price of wielding power can bring down everything you care for and would protect.
