„Democracy has to be born anew every generation, and education is its midwife.“

—  John Dewey American philosopher, psychologist, and educational reformer 1859 - 1952

The Need of an Industrial Education in an Industrial Democracy (1916)
Misc. Quotes
Контексте: It is no accident that all democracies have put a high estimate upon education; that schooling has been their first care and enduring charge. Only through education can equality of opportunity be anything more than a phrase. Accidental inequalities of birth, wealth, and learning are always tending to restrict the opportunities of some as compared with those of others. Only free and continued education can counteract those forces which are always at work to restore, in however changed a form, feudal oligarchy. Democracy has to be born anew every generation, and education is its midwife.

„America cannot be the world's policeman. But we must reject the new isolationism that says: don't help anywhere, because we can not help everywhere.“

—  Al Gore 45th Vice President of the United States 1948

Quotes, IPI speech (2000)
Контексте: In the Global Age, we must be prepared to engage in regional conflicts selectively — where the stability of a region important to our national security is at stake; where we can assure ourselves that nothing short of military engagement can secure our national interest; where we are certain that the use of military force can succeed in doing so; where we have allies willing to help share the burden, and where the cost is proportionate. America cannot be the world's policeman. But we must reject the new isolationism that says: don't help anywhere, because we can not help everywhere.
