Most people are extras in their own movie instead of being stars in their own life !—Bob Proctor
"Democracy is a very difficult thing for a country that does not have a democratic tradition, But Iranians are ready to learn it. Khomeini is an Islamic Gandhi. He is at the axis of our movement, and his greatest achievement will have been to have overthrown the regime. But there must be a democratic republic. In the Iranian character, miracles always happen at the last moment. I hope one will happen again."—Daryush Shayegan, to TIME Correspondent David Jackson (1979)
"Tillerson and I 'disagreed on things' like the Iran deal"—President Donald Trump
"NRA has great power over you people, but has less power over me".—Donald Trump Trump at odds with Republican lawmakers
The repeated discussion of "never again" and bemoaning Western indifference hides the real issue at stake here. We simply don't care. The West will act only if the crucible of Syria generates a horror so extreme its militants threaten our own cities. The illusion that our disgrace and outrage may slow the massacre is giving the people of Ghouta false hope. We aren't minded or able to do anything. But where would you like us to send the flowers?— Nick Paton Walsh, CNN
"(Russia) is without question our No. 1 geopolitical foe. They fight for every cause for the world's worst actors. The idea that he (Obama) has more flexibility in mind for Russia is very, very troubling indeed," Romney told CNN's Wolf Blitzer on March 26 of that election year, referring to President Barack Obama being caught on a hot mic telling then-Russian President Dmitry Medvedev that after the election the United States would have more "flexibility," so long as Obama was re-elected.—Scott Jennings, CNN
It’s hard not to argue that Obama should have made Syria his main and overwhelming foreign policy focus, to the exclusion of nearly everything else, Iran deal be damned. The deal has contributed to escalating tensions. In retrospect, this was foreseeable.—JOSHUA KEATING
Shame Christiane Amanpour who calls herself a journalist. Being all over the mullahs but keeping mummmmm on the struggle of Iranians for freedom, democracy and secularism. Check out her page. Total silence on the issue. We shall not forget.—Roxanne Ganji
Four decades after the mullahs seized power Iran must stop acting as a vehicle for a bankrupt “revolution” and re-became a nation-state behaving like a country. And that requires regime change.—Amir Taheri
"Rape is a crime, but insistent or clumsy flirting is not an offense, nor is gallantry macho aggression."—Catherine Deneuve denounces #MeToo in open letter
