Crisis Quotes

Abraham Lincoln

Corporations have been enthroned, an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money-power of the country will endeavor to prolong it's reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until the wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed.
Abraham Lincoln

The very first seed was really in the great Polish crisis of 1980-81, because it seems to me they were losing their nerve. Much earlier, they had that problem in Czechoslovakia (and) they didn't hesitate. They just decided to invade. With Poland, they could have invaded, but again it seemed to me that they were not ready to continue to defy world opinion. And to me this was a serious psychological sign of weakness.

Don Delillo
