Personal Quotes (34)

[during her 60 Minutes (1968) interview in 1992 with her husband by Mike Wallace in response to how she feels about her husband's infidelity] I am not going to be some Tammy Wynette "Stand By Your Man..."
[speech to wealthy donors, June 28, 2004] Many of you are well enough off that... the tax cuts may have helped you... We're saying that for America to get back on track, we're probably going to cut that short and not give it to you. We're going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good.
[Interview on Today (1952), 1998] There is a story out there, for those who care to report it, and that is the vast, right-wing conspiracy that's been conspiring against my husband since the day he announced for President.
[July 3, 2007] I believe that presidential pardon authority is available to any president, and almost all presidents have exercised it. This [George W. Bush's quick commutation of the sentence of convicted perjurer Lewis Libby, aka "Scooter", former Chief of Staff of Vice President Dick Cheney] was clearly an effort to protect the White House . . . There isn't any doubt now, what we know is that Libby was carrying out the implicit or explicit wishes of the Vice President or maybe the President as well, in the further effort to stifle dissent.
I always take time to worship God in as evangelical a way as is feasible, given time and location constraints. As you know, I consider myself an evangelical Christian, really a Christian conservative, if you want to know the truth, so it's nice to be home again in the South, which I really consider my quote-unquote home even though I live in New York most of the time. Well, Washington D.C. most of the time, actually, but if I'm not there I'm in New York, of course, but always thinking about being here, in the South, my spiritual home.
Some people think elections are a game: who's up or who's down. It's about our country. It's about our kids' future. It's about all of us together. Some of us put ourselves out there and do this against some difficult odds. We do it, each one of us, against difficult odds. We do it because we care about our country. Some of us are right, and some of us are not. Some of us are ready, and some of us are not. Some of us know what we will do on day one, and some of us haven't thought that through.
[Washington D.C. speech, June 2008] Although we weren't able to shatter that highest, hardest glass ceiling this time, thanks to you, it's got about 18 million cracks in it. And the light is shining through like never before, filling us all with the hope and the sure knowledge that the path will be a little easier next time. That has always been the history of progress in America.
[Beijing Conference 1995] Tragically, women are most often the ones whose human rights are violated. Even in the late 20th century, the rape of women continues to be used as an instrument of armed conflict. Women and children make up a large majority of the world's refugees. When women are excluded from the political process, they become even more vulnerable to abuse.

I believe that, on the eve of a new millennium, it is time to break our silence. It is time for us to say here in Beijing, and the world to hear, that it is no longer acceptable to discuss women's rights as separate from human rights.

These abuses have continued because, for too long, the history of women has been a history of silence. Even today, there are those who are trying to silence our words.
[on personal power] Women are always being tested . . . but ultimately, each of us has to define who were are individually and then do the very best job we can to grow into that.
If Hollywood and Bollywood were how we all lived our lives, that would surprise me. And yet it's often the way our cultures are conveyed, isn't it?

People watching a Bollywood movie in some other part of Asia think everybody in India is beautiful and they have dramatic lives and happy endings. And if you were to watch American TV and our movies you'd think that we don't wear clothes and we spend all our time fighting with each other.
[on 10 August 2009, on being asked by an African student about President Bill Clinton's thoughts on Chinese economic policy] Wait. You want me to tell you what my husband thinks? My husband is not the Secretary of State -- I am. So you ask my opinion, I will tell you my opinion. I'm not going to be channeling my husband.
In the middle of the next crises, I'm cutting my hair. Believe me, we won't be reading about what war is going on.
[on Jason Segel's request that she appear in an upcoming project] I am a little occupied at the moment, but perhaps I can help you forget Sarah Marshall...again.
[on the murder of the U.S. Ambassador to Libya] He risked his life to stop a tyrant, then gave his life trying to help build a better Libya. The world needs more Chris Stevenses.
Anyone who says that racial discrimination is not a problem in American elections must not be paying attention.
[ducking a shoe at a recycling convention] My goodness, I didn't realize solid-waste management was so controversial.
I think the world is so complicated, the fewer corners that you can have, the better.
[advice to Yale graduates, at Commencement 2001] The most important thing I have to say to you today is that hair matters. Pay attention to your hair, because everyone else will.
Study after study has documented that when women have the opportunity to start businesses , own land, and receive credit, entire economies expand.
The current rules for our economy reward some work - like financial trading - much more than other work, like actually building and selling things.
[on the popularity of Donald Trump] A lot of people are understandably reacting out of fear and anxiety. Mr. Trump has a great capacity to use bluster and bigotry to inflame people and to make them think there are easy answers to very complex questions.
[in a primary campaign speech, February 2016] I don't think President Obama gets the credit he deserves for digging us out of the ditch the Republicans put us in.
I know what it's like to be knocked down and how you dust yourself off and you get back up and you keep fighting for what you believe in. But you do it within the process ..so that you can point to our political system working.
[on her presumptive win to head the Democrat ticket in the 2016 election] Barriers can come down. Justice and equality can win. This campaign is making sure there are no ceilings, no limits on any of us. This is our moment to come together.
[on Donald Trump] He says he has foreign policy experience because he ran the Miss Universe pageant in Russia.
[on Donald Trump] I'll leave it to the psychiatrists to explain his affection for tyrants.
My dream is a hemispheric common market, with open markets and open borders.
It is unsavory, and it has always been that way, but we usually end up where we need to be. But if everybody's watching, you know, all the back room discussions and the deals,you know, people get a little nervous, to say the least. So you need both a public and a private position,
[After Donald Trump insisted she be drug-tested before the final 2016 presidential debate] I am so flattered that Donald thought I used some sort of performance-enhancer! Now actually, I did, it's called preparation.
Just yesterday one of Britain's most prominent right-wing leaders, a man named Nigel Farage, who stoked anti-immigrant sentiments to win the referendum to have Britain leave the European Union, campaigned with Donald Trump in Mississippi. Farage has called for a bar on the children of legal immigrants from public schools and health services, has said women are - and I quote - 'worth less' than men and supports scrapping laws that prevent employers from discriminating based on race. That's who Donald Trump wants by his side when he is addressing an audience of American voters.
'Change' might be the most powerful word in American politics. It's also one of the hardest to define. In 1992 and 2008, 'change' meant electing dynamic young leaders who promised hope and renewal. In 2016, it meant handing a lit match to a pyromaniac.
[observation, after her 2016 presidential election loss ] I have come to terms with the fact that a lot of people - millions and millions of people - decided they just didn't like me.
Sexism still exerts a pull on our lives and our choices. It is a very subtle but clear challenge that has to be acknowledged and confronted. So we have to be doing all we can to open the aperture of understanding and acceptance. My gender is my gender. My voice is my voice. I love to quote the first woman in a presidential Cabinet - Frances Perkins, who served under FDR - who said, "The accusation that I am a woman is incontrovertible." So embrace that, and be proud of it.
[observation, two years into the Trump presidency] I hoped that my fears for the future were overblown. They were not.
