Famous quotes containing the words nations and/or competing:

    Organize first for knowledge, first with the object of making us know ourselves as a nation, for we have to do that before we can be of value to other nations of the world and then organize to accomplish the things that you decide to want. And ... don’t make decisions with the interest of youth alone before you. Make your decisions because they are good for the nation as a whole.
    Eleanor Roosevelt (1884–1962)

    A genuine Left doesn’t consider anyone’s suffering irrelevant or titillating; nor does it function as a microcosm of capitalist economy, with men competing for power and status at the top, and women doing all the work at the bottom.... Goodbye to all that.
    Robin Morgan (b. 1941)
