Famous quotes containing the word countries:

    We are the sons and daughters of the world they saved. [Now is our moment] to make common cause with other countries to ensure a world of peace and prosperity for yet another generation.
    Bill Clinton (b. 1946)

    Other countries drink to get drunk, and this is accepted by everyone; in France, drunkenness is a consequence, never an intention. A drink is felt as the spinning out of a pleasure, not as the necessary cause of an effect which is sought: wine is not only a philtre, it is also the leisurely act of drinking.
    Roland Barthes (1915–1980)

    Other countries have history; we have nothing but contradictions.
    Christina Stead (1902–1983)
