Graham Greene
“I don't care a damn about men who are loyal to the people who pay them, to organizations...I don't think even my country means all that much. There are many countries in our blood, aren't there, but only one person. Would the world be in the mess it is if we were loyal to love and not to countries?”
Graham Greene, Our Man in Havana

Frédéric Bastiat
“When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men in a society, over the course of time they create for themselves a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it.”
Frédéric Bastiat

“Nationalism does nothing but teach you to hate people you never met, and to take pride in accomplishments you had no part in.”
Doug Stanhope

Pádraic Pearse
“Tír gan teanga, tír gan anam. A country without a language is a country without a soul.”
Pádraig Pearse

“The most dangerous people in the world are not the tiny minority instigating evil acts, but those who do the acts for them. For example, when the British invaded India, many Indians accepted to work for the British to kill off Indians who resisted their occupation. So in other words, many Indians were hired to kill other Indians on behalf of the enemy for a paycheck. Today, we have mercenaries in Africa, corporate armies from the western world, and unemployed men throughout the Middle East killing their own people - and people of other nations - for a paycheck. To act without a conscience, but for a paycheck, makes anyone a dangerous animal. The devil would be powerless if he couldn't entice people to do his work. So as long as money continues to seduce the hungry, the hopeless, the broken, the greedy, and the needy, there will always be war between brothers.”
Suzy Kassem

Criss Jami
“The greater ignorance towards a country is not ignoring what its politicians have to say, it is ignoring what the inmates in its prisons have to say.”
Criss Jami, Killosophy

Aphra Behn
“Money speaks sense in a language all nations understand.”
Aphra Behn

Stefan Molyneux
“The world, viewed philosophically, remains a series of slave camps, where citizens – tax livestock – labor under the chains of illusion in the service of their masters.”
Stefan Molyneux

“Understanding languages and other cultures builds bridges. It is the fastest way to bring the world closer together and to Truth. Through understanding, people will be able to see their similarities before differences.”

Mahatma Gandhi
“Peace between countries must rest on the solid foundation of love between individuals.”

Mokokoma Mokhonoana

Santosh Kalwar

Amit Kalantri
“War is not just the shower of bullets and bombs from both sides, it is also the shower of blood and bones on both sides.”
Amit Kalantri, Wealth of Words

Abhaidev
“Borderless world is a good idea. But unless all countries of the world agree on that, it is mere idealism. A fancy idea which looks good only on paper.”
Abhaidev, The Influencer: Speed Must Have a Limit

Edmund de Waal
“It makes me wonder what belonging to a place means. Charles died a Russian in Paris. Viktor called it wrong and was a Russian in Vienna for fifty years, then Austrian, then a citizen of the Reich, and then stateless. Elisabeth kept Dutch citizenship in England for fifty years. And Iggie was Austrian, then American, then an Austrian living in Japan.

You assimilate, but you need somewhere else to go. You keep your passport to hand. You keep something private.”
Edmund de Waal, The Hare With Amber Eyes: A Family's Century of Art and Loss

Kai-Fu Lee
“Over the years, I have learned that if each country could understand the other’s history, culture, and viewpoint, and accept that there are some issues that the two countries will “agree to disagree”, there would be tremendous progress. I have come to really like the wise Chinese proverb “yi zhong qiu tong,” which means seeking common ground while accepting differences. This is precisely the mindset that both countries need.”

Mwanandeke Kindembo
“In some countries, the churches took over the place of the castles. In my opinion, these same churches represent the castles. For they have the same wealth like that of the kings.”
Mwanandeke Kindembo

W.E.B. Du Bois
“Nations reel and stagger on their way; they make hideous mistakes; they commit frightful wrongs; they do great and beautiful things. And shall we not best guide humanity by telling the truth about all this, so far as the truth is ascertainable?”
W.E.B. Du Bois, Black Reconstruction in America 1860-1880

Stellah Mupanduki
“This is a life changing time, a time of restoration and peace for someone's country, that someone who is a citizen of a country with brokenness. God heals countries and now is the time to look upon him for true and permanent divine healing for nations and all people.”
Stellah Mupanduki, Restoration Of A Broken Country: A Prayer For My Country

Christina Engela
“Peace, shalom, salaam – to all – in our homes, in our streets, in our countries, on our world, and most importantly, in our hearts and minds – not just for one day of the year, or two, but for every day, and for every year, always.”
Christina Engela, Pearls Before Swine

“The English language is somewhat ‘GLOBAL’ or widespread because it has reached many nations but it is not truly an ‘INTERNATIONAL’ language! Actually, it will be international when all the countries accept it or if the words from all the existing languages are added to it or if an entirely new language is created with the presence of words, grammar etc. from all the current languages in the world!”
Md. Ziaul Haque

Lailah Gifty Akita
“The stability of a nation lies in the fear of Sovereign LORD.”

Mehmet Murat ildan

“If you don't stop your brother or sister for committing crime in another country, but you cry, fight, hate, and kill for them. When they are arrested by another country. Then you are not ready for one Africa. One Africa means respecting other countries law, authority and citizen. If you cant do that , then you don't deserve to be in another better country than the one you live in.”
De philosopher DJ Kyos

Lailah Gifty Akita
“Know the history of your country and other countries.”
Lailah Gifty Akita

Agnes Chew
“When I was a child, a teacher once said that there existed 195 countries in the world. Astronomers lay claim to there being eight planets in our solar system, of the hundreds of solar systems that lie in our galaxy, of the billions of galaxies that exist in our single universe. On still nights when sleep forgets to steal me away, I think about all the worlds that have yet to be discovered by astronomers – vast, immense worlds that continue to remain hidden within each and every one of us; vast, immense worlds that continue to escape the consciousness of others.”
Agnes Chew, The Desire for Elsewhere

Et Imperatrix Noctem
“Countries are organized crime syndicates that do business with other criminals. Whichever side you are on, you are a pawn on a chessboard.”
Et Imperatrix Noctem

Mehmet Murat ildan
“Yes, our century is called the 21st century, but some countries are in the 16th century, some leaders in the 9th century, some people in the 4th century! It is an impossible mission to bring the whole world and all people to the same century! People or countries will always live in a different century! While some has left the religion issues behind, some others will still be the slaves of religion! While some is heading for Mars, some others will start building cars!”
Mehmet Murat ildan

“The most important principle of the new association is to make the underdeveloped countries feel in truth that they belong. It is not a matter of giving, nor a matter of taking, nor even a matter of giving and taking; It is a matter of belonging.”
Charles Malik
