Favorite Policy Debate Quotes

1. "The stakes involved in Washington policy debates are often so high-- whether we send our young men and women to war; whether we allow stem cell research to go forward-- that even small differences in perspective are magnified. The demands of party loyalty, the imperative of campaigns, and the amplification of conflict by the media all contribute to an atmosphere of suspicion. Moreover, most people who serve in Washington have been trained either as lawyers or as political operatives-- professions that tend to place a premium on winning arguments rather than solving problems. I can see how, after a certain amount of time in the capital, it becomes tempting to assume that those who disagree with you have fundamentally different values-- indeed, that they are motivated by bad faith, and perhaps are bad people."
Author: Barack Obama
2. "If we truly knew all the answers in advance as to the meaning of life and the nature of God and the destiny of our souls, our belief in all that would not be a leap of faith and it would not a courageous act of humanity; it would just be... a prudent insurance policy. I'm not interested in the insurance industry. I am tired of being a skeptic, I'm irritated by spiritual prudence and I feel bored and parched by empirical debate. I don't want to hear it anymore. I couldn't care less about evidence and proof and assurances. I just want God. I want God inside me. I want God to play in my bloodstream the way light amuses itself on water."
Author: Elizabeth Gilbert
3. "My goal in Baghdad was to facilitate a debate here in the United States on America's policy toward Iraq, a debate that's been sadly lacking."
Author: Scott Ritter

Today's Quote

Niets waaraan mensen zich zo lelijk kunnen verwonden als aan het geluk van een ander.Dat iets moois je kwalijk genomen zou kunnen worden, als je jong bent kun je zoiets niet geloven. Dat iemand je de liefde misgunt, hoe kun je daarop bedacht zijn?De eerste tijd heb je het ook helemaal niet door. Omdat het in jou zo zingt ga je ervan uit dat iedereen meeneuriet. Dat ze meedeinen op jouw muziek. Dit is maar schijn. Door jouw roes lijkt het of ze tollen. In feite staan ze stil en ze zetten zich alvast schrap. Vroeger of later bots je in volle vaart tegen ze op."
