Top 5 quotes from Colin Powell
"When we are debating an issue, loyalty means giving me your honest opinion, whether you think I'll like it or not. Disagreement, at this stage, stimulates me. But once a decision has been made, the debate ends. From that point on, loyalty means executing the decision as if it were your own."
"Over the years, the United States has sent many of its fine young men and women into great peril to fight for freedom beyond our borders. The only amount of land we have ever asked for in return is enough to bury those that did not return."
"There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure."
"Experts often possess more data than judgment."
"You don't know what you can get away with until you try."
Top 5 quotes from Race
"I detest racialism, because I regard it as a barbaric thing, whether it comes from a black man or a white man."
"There can be no doubt that racial paternalism and its unintended consequences can be as poisonous and pernicious as any other form of discrimination."
"I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character."
"Violence as a way of achieving racial justice is both impractical and immoral. It is impractical because it is a descending spiral ending in destruction for all. It is immoral because it seeks to humiliate the opponent rather than win his understanding; it seeks to annihilate rather than to convert. Violence is immoral because it thrives on hatred rather than love."
"I don't believe in quotas. America was founded on a philosophy of individual rights, not group rights."
