Famous quotes containing the word claim:

    Now, at the end of three years struggle the nation’s condition is not what either party, or any man devised, or expected. God alone can claim it.
    Abraham Lincoln (1809–1865)

    Those who dare to interpret God’s will must never claim Him as an asset for one nation or group rather than another. War springs from the love and loyalty which should be offered to God being applied to some God substitute, one of the most dangerous being nationalism.
    Robert Runcie (b. 1921)

    Modern equalitarian societies ... whether democratic or authoritarian in their political forms, always base themselves on the claim that they are making life happier.... Happiness thus becomes the chief political issue—in a sense, the only political issue—and for that reason it can never be treated as an issue at all.
    Robert Warshow (1917–1955)
