Countries

Famous quotes containing the word countries:

    In the life of the human spirit, words are action, much more so than many of us may realize who live in countries where freedom of expression is taken for granted. The leaders of totalitarian nations understand this very well. The proof is that words are precisely the action for which dissidents in those countries are being persecuted.
    Jimmy Carter (James Earl Carter, Jr.)

    Communists have always played an active role in the fight by colonial countries for their freedom, because the short- term objects of Communism would always correspond with the long-term objects of freedom movements.
    Nelson Mandela (b. 1918)

    In countries where associations are free, secret societies are unknown. In America there are factions, but no conspiracies.
    Alexis de Tocqueville (1805–1859)
