James Comey
A person of faith who shares conservative values and who says very clearly that climate change is real – and here’s why we have to care about it – I think that we “unicorns” do pose a threat to people who want to muddy the waters and keep others in the dark.
Katharine Hayhoe
As I’ve seen over and over again during my career, the best way to deter individual conduct is the threat of going to jail. That’s what truly changes behavior. That’s what changes the calculus as employees and executives decide whether to participate in an illegal scheme.
Sally Yates
At no point was my career under threat, so I always knew that I would get back into action.
Jamie Redknapp

Noam Chomsky
The greatest gift you can give someone is the space to be his or herself, without the threat of you leaving.
Kai Greene
So my heart goes out to them. Figuratively. I would never actually entrust my heart to scientists—they’d probably implant it in a baboon. And a baboon with my heart would be practically unstoppable. Baboon strength and agility combined with my determination and media savvy? It would be a threat to all of humanity.
Stephen Colbert
The U.S. might have diminished al-Qaeda’s capabilities in the border region of Pakistan and Afghanistan, but it has not diminished the threat from radical Islamist terrorists as a whole.

The core of the culture is racism and how black men are viewed. They’ve always been demonized and seen as threats in our culture. Another holdover from slavery. We’ve got to deal with that core root of racism and demonization of the upbringing of black men. Black women are not exempt by any means.
Marian Wright Edelman
I’ll tell you what the danger is for Europe. It’s carrying out a cold war against Russia and pushing Russia into China’s arms. That’s the threat to Europe.

What we do in the book my daughter Anna and I wrote, Hope’s Edge, is to give people a glimpse of food as a source of nourishment, health, and community, rather than a threat. That means reconnecting with food as it comes from the Earth and with those who produce food.

Michael Scheuer
If you want to beat Donald Trump, you know, one of the clearest indications of who can beat Trump is Donald spends every waking moment attacking me. He doesn’t attack any other candidates, because his campaign views us as the only real threat to him.
Ted Cruz
The biggest threat we face is the possibility of terrorist groups like al Qaeda equipped with weapons of mass destruction, with nukes, bugs or gas. That was the threat after 9/11 and when we took down Saddam Hussein we eliminated Iraq as a potential source of that.

We come from the days when rap used to agitate the mainstream. Now it’s more buddy-buddy. That doesn’t sit well with me. So what we need is [a bit more] street politics, bringing up issues, agitating you a little bit. And nothing can agitate you more now than a terrorist threat.
Ice Cube
We don’t have a prayer of defeating the Red Threat of our generation without a long boom of almost unprecedented duration.
Mitch Daniels

Pete Hoekstra
Don’t make a threat and then not do it.
Suzanne Vega
I know from my own experience that you’ve got to be ready on day one. There is just too much unpredictable threat and danger in the world today to try to just say wait, I’ll get to that when I can. That is just not an acceptable approach.
Hillary Clinton
When people think about ‘thinking,’ they often think ‘academia;’ they think ‘threat.’ They think ‘coldness.’ I want to reverse all those images and say, ‘No, the brain God gave you is intended to throw fuel on the fire of your affections for God. It’s really good at it if you let it.’
John Piper
Our common goal should be the development of a system of equal security for all governments. System adequate [to deal with] modern threats, built on regional and global nonaligned bases. Only then can we ensure peace and tranquility in the world.
Vladimir Putin
The greatest threat we’ve had to economic growth has been that those in industry don’t know what is expected of them. Rules come that are outside of statutes. Rules get changed midway. It creates vast uncertainty and paralysis, and re-establishing a vigorous commitment to rule of law is going to help a lot.
Scott Pruitt
I understand why we do that now. It’s a help, not a threat. It’s something to remind you how important words are. Ideas are important. Principles are important. Words are important. Your word is the most important of all. Your word is who you are.

Al Gore
Sooner or later, we will face a catastrophic threat from space. Of all the possible threats, only a gigantic asteroid hit can destroy the entire planet. If we prepare now, we better our odds of survival. The dinosaurs never knew what hit them.
Michio Kaku
The greatest threat to our freedom and prosperity is not al-Qaida, the Taliban, Iran or even China. It’s an idea, the idea that we can spend our way out of our problems without tightening our belt and paring down the very bloated government.
Erik Prince
The liberation of Iraq was part of a broader effort to seriously confront the greatest threat to world security: rogue states capable of obtaining long range weapons of mass destruction.

I have never written that there is a threat of fascism in America. I always considered the idea overwrought. But now I believe there really is such a threat – and it will come draped not in an American flag, but in the name of tolerance and health.
Dennis Prager
My family has had to move and change their name and have been subject to threats from right wing blogs calling for my son, for example, to be killed to get at me.

John Foxe
We are protecting civilians. We are unarmed. We are no threat to you. Please do not shoot.
Rachel Corrie
I know people socially who live in countries where the wealth gap is more extreme than it is in America, and they live with full-time security. They live with the threat of getting kidnapped, or they live with the threat of people invading their homes.

Iraq is a long way from the U.S., but what happens there matters a great deal here. For the risks that the leaders of a rogue state will use nuclear, chemical or biological weapons against us or our allies is the greatest security threat we face.
Madeleine Albright
The alliance should agree… to an effective NATO role against the new threats presented by international terrorism and weapons of mass destruction.

Glenn Greenwald
There’s just a misconception that comes with being a dual-threat quarterback. You run first, throw second. I’ve proven I throw first and then run if I have to.
Robert Griffin III
It was always the intent, in a larger arc, to split the Avengers up before the greatest threat that they’ve ever seen.
Joe Russo
We will stand mighty for peace and freedom and maintain a strong defense against terror and destruction. Our children will sleep free from the threat of nuclear, chemical, or biological weapons.
William J. Clinton
I don’t mean to minimize Russia. They are a serious national security threat, but day in, day out, the threats that we face from China are significantly greater. Anyone who says otherwise is just politicizing intelligence for their own narrative.
John Ratcliffe
Never threaten, because a threat is a promise to pay that it isn’t always convenient to meet, but if you don’t make it good it hurts your credit. Save a threat till you’re ready to act, and then you won’t need it.
George Horace Lorimer
Stop thinking about global warming as a future threat and understand it instead as a present emergency, one that requires a far stronger policy response than we’d imagined.
Bill McKibben
What we achieved under General Petraeus up through 2011, and defeating this threat that we faced out there, I mean, once we decided to come out of there, we squandered an enormous opportunity that, frankly, the military did actually provide our nation and provided the Middle East.
Michael T. Flynn
All the criticism and all of the praise, it doesn’t – it’s not worth the salt that goes on my bread, because TV is fickle. You can be loved one day and hated the next day. One day, you’re getting an award. And the next day, you’re getting a death threat.
Nancy Grace
I know how people see me. People see me as a rebel. People see me as maybe even ignorant. People see me as a threat or rude or whatever. It’s a lot of people who just don’t know me.
August Alsina
Potentially, a government is the most dangerous threat to man’s rights: it holds a legal monopoly on the use of physical force against legally disarmed victims.
Ayn Rand
Joseph Kony is hiding somewhere in the Central African Republic. He is no longer a threat. We have already punished him. We provide our own safety.

Aleksandar Hemon
What’s needed today, now, more than ever, is ‘Star Peace’ for there is an ominous, mutual threat to all science fiction. It’s called ‘Twilight’. And it is really, really bad.

Mohammad Javad Zarif

One of the greatest threats facing book publishing, and the entire country for that matter, is censorship.
Bennett Cerf
The FBI assesses HVEs are the greatest terrorism threat to the homeland.
Christopher A. Wray

Steve Jobs
The bottom line is how do we best provide for the security of the traveling public in light of a determined enemy who is adept at constructing well-designed, well-concealed devices which would not show up in a walk-through metal detector? We’re trying to employ the best technology to identify any possible threat.
John S. Pistole
It is standard practice for corrupt leaders who are seeking a certain political outcome to hype or manipulate a terror threat or a threat of violent domestic subversion. While sometimes the threat is manufactured, frequently the hyped threat is based on a real danger.
Naomi Wolf
We are very definitely in a new phase in the global terrorist threat where the so-called lone wolf could strike at any moment.
Jeh Johnson

Carl Rogers
How could intelligent beings seek to control a few unwanted species by a method that contaminated the entire environment and brought the threat of disease and death even to their own kind?

Dianne Feinstein
I want to say that even – and Bernie said this many, many times – in several of the actual public debates, she said on her worst day, Hillary Clinton’s a thousand times better than Donald Trump. And Donald Trump, in my view, is a threat to the nation.

Ryan C. Gordon
The desire to achieve grand utopian plans often poses a grave threat to freedom.
Margaret Thatcher
This entire issue of transgender people posing a kind of threat to cisgender women in bathrooms is made up. We are just like everybody else – we go into the bathroom, we keep our heads down, we don’t look at anybody.
Nicole Maines
As long as these blood brothers are our leaders, and as long as your party officials are Jewish lackeys, you will be no threat to the big money men.
Julius Streicher
I think threat of change is pretty potent. In humans, blood pressure doesn’t go up when people get laid off: it goes up when they first hear rumors that layoffs are coming at the end of the month.
Robert Sapolsky
I think there has been an exaggeration [of the terrorist threat].
John F. Kerry
Iran’s President openly talks about wiping Israel off the map. The Iranian nuclear program is a threat, not just to my country, but to the entire region. And it’s incumbent upon us all to do what needs to be done to keep from proliferating.
Mark Regev
I do have the strength. Leadership, leadership is not about attacking people and disparaging people. Leadership is about creating a serious strategy to deal with the threat of our time.
Jeb Bush
Israel always has to be in a position to defend itself against any adversary and against any threat of any kind.
Ehud Olmert

President Trump’s threat to weaponize federal funding is not only unconstitutional but emblematic of the cruelty he seeks to impose on our most vulnerable communities.
Kevin de Leon
The man who is just and resolute will not be moved from his settled purpose, either by the misdirected rage of his fellow citizens, or by the threats of an imperious tryant.
The small companies who feel that the majors are a threat, or are predators, will use that as an excuse for their eventual downfall. Dont blame others for your own inadequacies.
Greg Ginn
As I’ve said repeatedly, Joe Biden in the White House is a threat to America’s safety and security.
Marjorie Taylor Greene
Can it be that a generation of school children is growing up heedless of the simple truth that the Pentagon’s centrla role for many years has been to buy weapons that don’t work, against threats that don’t exist?
Alexander Cockburn
I had a vague idea of the song’s impact in the ’60s, but that was tempered by the hate mail and threats I was receiving. It was only about ten years ago, when I finally put it back in my show because so many people were asking for it, that I understood ‘Society’s Child’ real impact.
Janis Ian
I think I do pose the biggest threat to Aldo. I feel like my boxing is better than his. He’s a kick boxer, with devastating kicks. Neither one of us cares to take it to the ground. I feel with my unpredictability and my boxing, I pose a big threat to him.
Cub Swanson
We still live with this unbelievable threat over our heads of nuclear war. I mean, are we stupid? Do we think that the nuclear threat has gone, that the nuclear destruction of the planet is not imminent? It’s a delusion to think it’s gone away.
Kevin Costner
Obviously, my perception of the world is one where humans are a threat to our survival.
Kevin Bacon
The US Airforce assures me that UFO’s pose no threat to National Security.
John F. Kennedy

Wojciech Kurtyka
Our Creator has given us five senses to help us survive threats from the external world, and a sixth sense, our healing system, to help us survive internal threats.

Michael Shellenberger
Assault weapons pose a grave threat to all Americans, but most especially to law enforcement officers on our city streets.
Dianne Feinstein
So not only do we need to deal with threats as they emerge, we have to be thinking in anticipation of future threats, and the things we do have to be things that enable the system to continue to work.
Janet Napolitano
It kind of scares me, the notion that we’re going to be injecting ourselves into other countries’ affairs when they’re not posing a threat to our security. I wouldn’t be telling Israel what to do.
Gary Johnson
There are reports that Russia is actually working with North Korea to encourage “collaboration and cooperation” between the two countries. Yeah, they believe that with Russia’s economic power and North Korea’s technology, they can be a real threat to 1987.
Jimmy Fallon
The greatest threat to America is not foreign terrorists, its domestic morons.
John Fugelsang
A crafty enemy will set a weak ambush you are meant to break through. Confident because you have dealt with the threat, your guard relaxed, you walk into the second, stronger ambush.
Robert Jordan
Be the buffalo. Wilma Mankiller, the first female principal chief of the Cherokee nation, once told me how the cow runs away from the storm while the buffalo charges directly toward it—and gets through it quicker. Whenever I’m confronted with a tough challenge, I do not prolong the torment. I become the buffalo.
Donna Brazile
Business leaders, social justice groups, farmers and ranchers, doctors and nurses and people from all walks of life are concerned about the climate threat.
Frances Beinecke

Frank Herbert
To interpose the threat of physical destruction between a man and his perception of reality, is to negate and paralyze his means of survival to force him to act against his own judgment, is like forcing him to act against his own sight
Ayn Rand
Will Smith is one of my favorite actors, and he’s also a triple threat. He successfully crossed over from music into acting. Also, I liked ‘I Am Legend’ because it was so unexpected. The movie wasn’t what I thought it’d turn out to be.
Kat Graham
There are bands that I got into when I was 15, when I was mad at my dad and just wanted to be different. I don’t think I’d give those bands half a chance now. But I hold some kind of nostalgia for them that I won’t let go. Bands like Minor Threat and Black Flag.
Pete Wentz
Cyberterrorism has become an increasingly prevalent and serious threat here in America, both to individuals and businesses.
Dana Boente
If you don’t see the Internet as an opportunity, it will become a threat. In two or three year’s time, the Internet will become as commonplace in the office as the telephone.
Tony Blair
I used to respect the United States and the American dream. Now I consider the United States the biggest threat to Internet freedom and peace in the world.
Kim Dotcom
Most women experience issues of power and sexuality, but very few women talk about it. There’s the threat of the loss of approval.
Janet Fitch
Think about it: Iran, Cuba, Venezuela – these countries are tiny compared to the Soviet Union. They don’t pose a serious threat to us the way the Soviet Union posed a threat to us.
Barack Obama
I am not afraid of death threats, but I am appalled that so many people are capable of so much wrong spelling and fractured grammar!

John F. Kerry
The main thing is I’ve tried to get better at everything – that includes the attacking side, being a threat, and taking people on.

I grew up and lived in a Britain in which strikes and the threat of strikes had become part of the social fabric – and it was not very nice.
Nigel Hamilton
Our economic future and our energy future are one in the same, and it’s a future America can’t shrink from. We must shape it, just as we’ve always done. We have to protect our planet from the threat of climate change and ensure that workers have the skills to compete for good middle-class jobs.
Tom Perez
…the discovery, that at no time did this man (Hitler) pose or intend a real threat to Britain or the Empire.
David Irving
The United States of America is a threat to world peace.
Nelson Mandela
I think we have to face the reality that in a society where there is a legitimate threat of terrorism, not being able to see one’s face, not being able to have some sense of communication in that way, is for many societies a challenge.
Hillary Clinton
Before progressives were apocalyptic about climate change they were apocalyptic about nuclear energy. Then, after the Cold War ended, and the threat of nuclear war declined radically, they found a new vehicle for their secular apocalypse in the form of climate change.
Michael Shellenberger
The profoundly cynical premise of all religionists is that people are not capable of behaving decently toward one another unless they are lured with promises of pie in the sky and simultaneously terrorized by the threats of extreme nastiness in the eternal afterlife in hell.
Barbara G. Walker
My job is thick with risks, threats, occasional violence and sometimes the necessary folly that sometimes courts humiliation and ridicule. But I don’t care. I see myself as the dean of American paparazzi.
Ron Galella
Though environmental orthodoxy holds that Third World deforestation is caused by rapacious clear-cutters and ruthless cattle barons, penniless peasants seeking fuel wood may be the greatest threat to our forests.
Gregg Easterbrook
Google views Facebook as a threat to its business and has been trying to launch a social-networking service to compete with it.
Daniel Lyons
If you look at great human civilizations, from the Roman Empire to the Soviet Union, you will see that most do not fail simply due to external threats but because of internal weakness, corruption or a failure to manifest the values and ideals they espouse.
Cory Booker
While scrapping the HRA would severely curtail people’s ability to seek legal redress in U.K. courts for violations of their fundamental rights, the Tories’ threat to withdraw the U.K. from the ECHR are far more frightening.
Emily Thornberry
The lesson of September the 11th is: Take threats before they fully materialize.
George W. Bush
For those who control the levers of power in Washington, and for the global special interests, they partner with these people that don’t have your good in mind. Our [presidental] campaign represents a true existential threat like they haven’t seen before.
Donald Trump
As a member of Congress, I am part of a large group of elected officials who remain clear-eyed about the threat emanating from Tehran.
Mike Pompeo
I like Jay-Z. I love Luda. I love Ledisi. I like Beyonce, of course. I think she’s just brilliant. She’s a triple threat. But my favorite – my all-time rapper is Tupac. See, I could have been Tupac’s girlfriend.
Stephanie Mills
I’ve been pretty clear about saying that I think that the No. 1 threat to our national security is our debt. And we’ve got to get our arms around that and head it in another – head it in the right direction – that we have to pay our fair share of this.
Michael Mullen
I consider it a mark of great prudence in a man to abstain from threats or any contemptuous expressions, for neither of these weaken the enemy, but threats make him more cautious, and the other excites his hatred, and a desire to revenge himself.
Niccolo Machiavelli
The gap between the rich and the poor is the most dangerous threat to world peace we have.
Hubert H. Humphrey
ISIS is not an existential threat to something happening to someone in the United States of America. It’s a serious problem overseas, but it’s confusing and frightening.
Joe Biden
If both sides reduced their long-range missiles by 50%, SDI would be an unacceptable threat to the remaining Soviet rocket forces.
Sergey Akhromeyev
The arrival of thousands of Muslim infiltrators to Israeli territory is a clear threat to the state’s Jewish identity. The refugees’ place is not among us, and the initiative to transfer them to Australia is the right and just solution.
Danny Danon
Nothing is as daunting as the threats associated with global warming. That’s the biggie. Everyone bangs on about rising sea levels but the real challenge of a warming planet is ocean acidification. An acid ocean spells the end of life on earth.
Tim Winton
This squirrel is inadequately afraid of humans! Squirrel, I am a threat to you! We are enemies! Please get off my bench! Oh, god! Oh, god! Don’t touch me—oh, god!
John Green
Climate change is the biggest threat to our chances of winning the fight against hunger.
Winnie Byanyima
He who fears not death fears not a threat.
Pierre Corneille
Hopefully my time in Nashville has helped me. We’ve had a lot of different things happen to our hockey club, seen a lot of different situations and different types of clubs from an expansion team to a Stanley Cup playoff threat. I think any coach that’s gone through those things, you become a better coach.
Barry Trotz
The possible impact of the virus [Zika] an extraordinary event and a public health threat to other parts of the world.
Margaret Chan
Hillary Clinton is a threat to the rule of law and to our safety and security.
Darryl Glenn
Change is not a threat, it’s an opportunity. Survival is not the goal, transformative success is.
Seth Godin
We have built as a government something called the National Cyber Investigative Joint Task Force, NCIJTF, where 19 federal agencies sit together and divide up the work. See the threat, see the challenge, divide it up and share information.
James Comey
The nuclear peril is usually seen in isolation from the threats to other forms of life and their ecosystems, but in fact it should be seen at the very center of the ecological crisis, as the cloud-covered Everest of which the more immediate, visible kinds of harm to the environment are the mere foothills.
Jonathan Schell
The primary threat to nature and people today comes from centralising and monopolising power and control. Not until diversity is made the logic of production will there be a chance for sustainability, justice and peace. Cultivating and conserving diversity is no luxury in our times: it is a survival imperative.
Vandana Shiva
Documentary is a little like horror movies, putting a face on fear and transforming threat into fantasy, into imagery. One can handle imagery by leaving it behind. (It is them, not us.)
Martha Rosler
This is a historic moment in global public health, demonstrating the international will to tackle a threat to health head on.
Gro Harlem Brundtland
I was told to hand over my disposable lighter, to prevent, I suppose, any threat of “Do what I say or I’ll light this Marlboro and you’ll all die – in thirty years due to inhalation of secondhand smoke.”
P. J. O’Rourke
I take the threat of terrorism very seriously, and no one is more committed to hunting down terrorists and bringing them to justice, wherever they live, than I am.
Harry Reid
In order to have greater visibility of the larger cyber threat landscape, we must remove the government bureaucratic stovepipes that inhibit our abilities to effectively defend America while ensuring citizens’ privacy and civil liberties are also protected.
Michael McCaul
Nuclear terrorism is one of the most serious threats of our time. Even one such attack could inflict mass casualties and create immense suffering and unwanted change in the world forever. This prospect should compel all of us to act to prevent such a catastrophe.
Ban Ki-moon
You go to war when there is a security threat, and Saddam Hussein was seen as a threat to our interests and our security.
Condoleezza Rice
Four hundred top-decision makers listed the myriad looming threats to global security, including famine, terrorism, inequality, disease, poverty and climate change. Yet when we tried to address each diverse force, we found them all attached to one universal security risk: fresh water.
Margaret Catley-Carlson
The hijab, or sikh turban, or Jewish skullcap are all explicit symbols, but they do not represent a threat or affront to others, and have no bearing on the competence, skills and intelligence of a person.
Randa Abdel-Fattah
Jenks kept me alive for two years through two death threats, a crazy banshee, and at least two serial killers. Its about time I return the favor! And if I can’t, then I can sit by his bed and hold his hand as he dies, ’cause I’ve had plenty of practice doing that, too!
Kim Harrison
She refused to accept the simple truism that the better you were, the bigger threat you were to those at the top.
Michael Connelly
The single biggest existential threat that’s out there, I think, is cyber.
Michael Mullen
The media is in charge of what you think. They’re in charge of what you know and don’t know. And any challenge to that, like alternative media or a president with direct access to the audience and doesn’t need them, is a threat.
Rush Limbaugh
In a world we find terrifying, we ratify that which doesn’t threaten us.
David Mamet
There is no doubt ISIS poses a clear, direct threat to the United States, and decisive action is badly needed.
Bradley Byrne
Climate change poses a far greater threat to the outdoor industry than even the privatization of the public lands.
Gretchen Bleiler
But to say that Sarah Palin and the tea party movement is responsible for vandalism or threats is just a way to dismiss the American people and, and their dissatisfaction with this health care bill.
Laura Ingraham
The influx of women into paid work and her increased power raise a woman’s aspirations and hopes for equal treatment at home. Her lower wage and status at work and the threat of divorce reduce what she presses for and actually expects.
Arlie Russell Hochschild
We will not be able to meet the challenges of integration and the threats posed by international terrorism. If we want to prevent attacks, we’ll need more information and better integration.
Wolfgang Schauble
Barack Obama is a threat to the continued existence of the United States, and he must be impeached, or resign.
Kesha Rogers
America is facing some major threats. Cyber warfare, Islamic terror and Russia, does it sound terrible? It sounds like the end of the world.
Kimberly Guilfoyle
When all the objectives of government include the achievement of equality – other than equality before the law – that government poses a threat to liberty.
Margaret Thatcher
In closing, the greatest threat to peace on this earth is the arrogance of a super-power [America] that is out of control.
Louis Farrakhan
As the Marine One helicopter lifts off from the White House, the Prowler team watches for snipers. The team also responds to any threat that may arise at the White House itself.
Ronald Kessler
The months of political campaigning have given us vivid reminders that women’s rights are under constant assault all over the globe. Tragically even the church has some self-examination to do, where often women are perceived as a threat or viewed as temptresses.
Carolyn Custis James
Fulfill – you can far more than fulfill – the brightest anticipations of those who, in the name of human freedom, and in the face of threats that have ripened into terrible realities since, fought that battle which placed you where you now stand.
Robert Dale Owen
The threat from radical Islam is real.
Darryl Glenn
Satan fools and feigns, blows and bluffs, and we so often take his threats to heart and forget the “exceeding greatness of God’s power to us.
Leonard Ravenhill
When Britain and the U.S. invaded Iraq, it was with the reasonable expectation that it was going to increase the threat of terror, as it has.
Noam Chomsky
To advocate a New Order was to seek freedom and respect for peoples without prejudice, and to seek a stable basis for the existence all peoples, equally, and free of threats
Hideki Tojo
So I ask the nuclear powers to abandon the out-of-date thinking of the Cold War period and take a fresh look. Above all, I appeal to them to bear in mind the long-term threat that nuclear weapons pose to humankind and to begin action towards their elimination.
Joseph Rotblat
Terrorism kills far fewer people than cigarettes, or alcohol, or car accidents. But we don’t see ourselves restructuring society and lives in order to make those threats go away.
Edward Snowden
With the common Iranian threat bringing the Sunni Arab world and Israel closer together, an Israeli-Palestinian peace would go a long way in improving relations and rebuffing Iran’s regional ambitions.
Edgar Bronfman, Sr.
Our biggest threat is not an asteroid about to crash into us, something we can do nothing about. Instead, all the major threats facing us today are problems entirely of our own making. And since we made the problems, we can also solve the problems.
Jared Diamond
China always urges that no use or threat of sanctions should be allowed in international relations.
Li Zhaoxing
If a government is overreacting in this way and treating you as such a dangerous threat, then you know that you are doing your job.
Clare Rewcastle Brown
There’s always the threat of “spiritual one-up-manship” that we must avoid.
Sam Storms
There is no terror, Cassius, in your threats, For I am armed so strong in honesty That they pass by me as the idle wind
William Shakespeare
Al-Qaida is a worldwide organization. It’s a continuous threat.
Jose Rodriguez
The world has been close to war before – but now man, who has survived all previous threats to his existence, has taken into his mortal hands the power to exterminate the entire species some seven times over.
John F. Kennedy
Security is something that serves Israeli interests and Palestinian interests. You have a common threat and you have a common enemy and it’s important to deal with that as partners.
Dennis Ross
In 1985, as a community activist and GLC councillor, I organised the first ever public meeting to explain the threat of a third runway at Heathrow airport for my local community.
John McDonnell
When you’re facing the threat of recession, you need to have an expansionary monetary and fiscal policy. Pre-Keynesian, Hooverite views are dead everywhere except on 19th Street in Washington.
Joseph Stiglitz
United could soon overtake Arsenal as the chief threat to Chelsea, and defiant Keane vowed: We will keep fighting to the end. We are Manchester United, that is what we do.
Roy Keane
Asbestos, EMFs, and CFCs have given us a degree of humility. When yesterday’s “triumph of modern chemistry” turns out instead to be today’s deadly threat to the global environment, it is legitimate to ask what else we don’t know.
Denis Hayes
Your mortal attachments are like a puppet’s strings,” Avari said, both hands clasped casually at his back. “One need only pluck the right cord to make the puppet dance.” His smile was almost creepier than his threats. “Dance, reaper!
Rachel Vincent
Christian nation mythologists pump themselves up with narratives of American exceptionalism and Christian domination. But sooner or later even their most devoted followers should begin to see that also depicting it as vulnerable to non-existent threats undermines the myth itself.
Sarah Posner
I’m not vouching for Putin’s character, he seems like a shady guy. Hard to see why he’s a threat was.
Tucker Carlson
We are not a gigantic state, we do not have nuclear weapons, but our army is sufficiently capable to respond to any threat… Therefore, we will protect our patch of land, our statehood, and our independence.
Alexander Lukashenko
… I think we should never underestimate the power of women’s threats. If you have ever faced an angry group of women, you know that it makes one very nervous. How can we get groups of women to act in such ways as to make corporations nervous? I should like us to use this method sparingly; but it can be used.
Juanita M. Kreps
Calling representatives every single day, arranging local community meetings, and marching in the streets every Sunday. It’s not the path to glory, but it’s absolutely essential to maintaining a democracy under threat.
Laura Moser
In my view, Obamacare is the most existential threat to our economy than anything we’ve ever had since the Great Depression, so I think a little bit of additional deficit is nothing compared to delaying if not repealing Obamacare.
John Fleming
That is nice, Mr. Morgan. Because in response to your tough-guy speech, I, in turn, would’ve had to give you my tough-girl speech, about where, exactly, federal prosecutors who come to my office looking for assistance can stick their obstruction of justice threats
Julie James
The terrorist threat is so cloudy, faceless, and vague, so manipulable by political purposes, so definitely present but indefinitely manifested, that it sometimes feels interchangeable with everyday dread itself.
Lee Siegel
Freedom has become a commodity whose availability, paradoxically, keeps society in check. The threat of its loss seems to enable us to tolerate its imposition.
Andrzej Stasiuk
If our intelligence is either manipulated or if it’s shaded or if in some way it is exaggerated, it is very, very dangerous for us, particularly as we go down the road and look at other threats.
Carl Levin
Terrorism is the intentional use of, or threat to use violence against civilians or against civilian targets, in order to attain political aims.
Boaz Ganor
My interest is that there is a disconnect between the science and the size of the threat that people mention about nature, the planet and the climate, and the emotion that this triggers. So we are supposed to be extremely frightened people, but despite that we appear to sleep pretty well.
Bruno Latour
In Donald’s mind, even acknowledging an inevitable threat would indicate weakness. Taking responsibility would open him up to blame. Being a hero – being good – is impossible for him.
Mary L. Trump
Weapons of mass destruction are the greatest threat to life on earth. Biological weapons are often called the poor man’s atomic bomb. Saddam Hussein is the ruler who has for decades been making the most determined and diabolical illegal effort to acquire them.
William Shawcross
Man-made global warming was a potential serious threat, and NASA wanted Congress to fund new satellites to study the problem. It was a team effort to get that accomplished.
Roy Spencer
I think inequality has gone past the point where it’s helping us all get rich, and it’s really becoming a serious threat.
Angus Deaton
In addition, we will improve the Department of Defense’s cyber capabilities. A new threat, a new problem, very expensive, and we’re not doing very well with cyber.
Donald Trump
We should respect each other as rational beings by trying to achieve our goals through reason and persuasion rather than threats and coercion.
Ron Paul
I don’t think that globalisation is anywhere near the threat that robots are.
Angus Deaton
Communism was replaced by the threat of ambitious environmentalism.
Vaclav Klaus
Our nation has both an obligation and self-interest in facing head-on the serious environmental, economic and national security threat posed by global warming.
John McCain
Most people are basically a victim of the circumstances of their life. They have things like 9/11, they have terrorism threats, they have new war threats, they have economy problems, and they think, ‘What can I do? I’m basically a victim.’
Stephen Covey
The framers understood that the president, as the head of our armed forces, must defend the nation from imminent threat. But when the mission shifts from defense to offense, congressional approval is essential.
Tim Kaine
Be quiet or I’ll be forced to flick you.” “Ooh,” he mocked. “The ultimate threat. I don’t think I’ve ever been flicked before.” “Are you suggesting I can’t hurt you?” “On the contrary, I think you have the power to do great damage.
Alexandra Adornetto
Pose a political threat to Business As Usual, and sooner or later, mostly sooner, someone will try to kill you.
Alexander Cockburn
We need to shift the paradigm from reactive technologies to more integrative solutions that deal with the variety and complexity of the threats that are out there today.
John W. Thompson
Loneliness is such an omnipotent and painful threat to many persons that they have little conception of the positive values of solitude and even, at times, are frightened at the prospect of being alone.
Rollo May
What I see as the greatest threat to America is that the American people will put political pressure on their leaders to pull out of Iraq before we should.
Thelma Drake
People who speak up for freedom in regimes that are repressive are often at threat.
Rex W. Tillerson
A threat is a promise followed by a consequence.
Amy Dickinson
The George W. Bush universe of threats is a constantly expanding universe as he moves to politically higher ground, escaping from failure after failure. He’s not only radical, but the consequences of his radicalism have been catastrophic.
Sidney Blumenthal
The implied threat of using nuclear weapons to curb guerrillas was as absurd as to talk of using a sledge hammer to ward off a swarm of mosquitoes.
B. H. Liddell Hart
When there is an influenza threat, drop everything and focus on risks from influenza pandemics. When SARS spreads, focus on unknown respiratory diseases. This approach helps to quell public concern, but it’s a hugely inefficient way to deal with future risks.
Nathan Wolfe
There’s no legal protection for cyborgs. In 2010, I started the Cyborg Foundation to defend our rights. Cyborgs have been kicked out from several places because they are seen as a possible security threat. I’ve been kicked out from places such as Harrods, Casino Montecarlo, and many supermarkets.
Neil Harbisson
The Interest Rate Reduction Act takes a first step toward providing critical stability by eliminating the threat of an immediate interest rate increase, while making clear the need to move toward a long-term solution that serves the best interests of taxpayers and borrowers.
John Kline
Devastation could arise insidiously, rather than suddenly, through unsustainable pressure on energy supplies, food, water and other natural resources. Indeed, these pressures are the prime ‘threats without enemies’ that confront us.
Martin Rees
The essential thing we need to understand is that the climate crisis is not some future threat, but a very present peril, the biggest one humans have ever encountered. Until we understand that, we’ll dawdle.
Bill McKibben
There is no consensus in Israel regarding the two-state formula. We will not, under any circumstances, allow the establishment of a neighboring state that will be a genuine threat on our existence.
Reuven Rivlin
I have gotten death threats – that was scary. But it just made me want to use my voice more.
Amy Schumer
It is obvious that humanity faces existential threats of a global nature. They are global in the sense that is not possible to deal with them unless we resort to global governance.
Torbjorn Tannsjo
We’re learning as we go. We’re a lot smarter this time. We understand what it takes to mobilize away from the threat of a hurricane.
Ray Nagin
The fight against terrorism will not be over tomorrow or next month, or even next year. The fight will endure for years to come, and as the threat changes, so too must we adapt to these transformations.
Will Hurd
Dudes know I’m not a threat. Chicks know I’m not a threat.
Kevin Smith
No challenge poses a greater threat to future generations than climate change.
Barack Obama
Climate change is a security threat that Africans have had to deal with all of our lives.
Ali Bongo Ondimba
Let me be clear: Those who seek to undermine our democratic institutions, indiscriminately destroy our businesses and attack our law enforcement officers and fellow citizens are a threat to the homeland.
Chad Wolf
As the United States attorney in Manhattan, I have come to worry about few things as much as the gathering cyber threat.
Preet Bharara
There is total unanimity that the most serious threat facing the United States and Israel is a nuclear-armed Iran.
Ted Deutch
My greatest fear is the Iranians acquire a nuclear weapon and give it to a terrorist organization. And there is a real threat of them doing that.
John McCain
As every new breed of virus is conceived, created and released into the wild, another small change is made to the anti-virus software to combat the new threat.
Glenn Turner
In any insurgency there will be people who are irreconcilable and who pose a clear and present threat to the U.S. and our allies.
James G. Stavridis
ISIS is the most sophisticated terror threat we have ever faced. We are now at a time when we need more tools, not less tools. And that took we lost, the metadata program, was a valuable tool that we no longer have at our disposal.
Marco Rubio
Now this brings me to my main topic – our military strength – more specifically, how to stay strong against threat from outside, without undermining the economic health that supports our security.
Dwight D. Eisenhower
Years of passivity and drift among U.S. policymakers have allowed the U.S. – China trade deficit to grow to the point where is widely recognized as a major threat to our economy.
Robert Lighthizer
We’ve begin a nationwide effort to remove criminal aliens, gang members, drug dealers and others who pose a threat to public safety.
Donald Trump
Well, one thing’s very clear, that terrorism isn’t just a threat which is external to Western countries. It’s not simply a foreign menace that comes from overseas to strike our cities. It can and it does, as we now know, come from within our own countries and from inside our own populations.
Pauline Neville-Jones
The threat of nuclear terrorism is growing faster than our ability to prevent an attack on our homeland.
Joe Lieberman
I’ve long been against illegal aliens, partly because they distract us from an even bigger threat: real aliens.
Stephen Colbert
Our songs touch people, and take them back to a time when there was no threat of terrorism, when you didn’t have to lock your doors and when Mom and Dad took care of everything.
George Grove
We face now an era where we’re going to be fighting the terrorist threat. I mean, that’s simply a reality we are going to have to address that one.
James Mattis
In the past, it was possible to destroy a village, a town, a region, even a country. Now it is the whole planet that has come under threat. This fact should compel everyone to face a basic moral consideration; from now on, it is only through a conscious choice and then deliberate policy that humanity will survive.
Pope John Paul II
I have in mind repeated statements by Japanese military men containing threats against other states.
Joseph Stalin
Hamilton was extremely combative. Not only was he combative, but he also overreacted to anything he perceived as a threat or a criticism.
Ron Chernow
A threat need not provoke a response if it is not taken up.
Paulo Coelho
They are definitely pros and cons to triple threat matches. The cons to them is obviously coming up wth something very original and making sure everything makes sense.
Adam Cole
We have global interests, potential threats from elsewhere, North Korea, Iran, Taiwan Straits and the like. We must be prepared for any future threat. That is why it is important that this be a transition year, 2006.
Ike Skelton
Obama has been saying for years now – he said it again on Sunday – that climate change is the biggest threat facing the planet, all the while he knew that Iran is just a couple months away from a nuclear bomb.
Rush Limbaugh
The PKK is the number one threat in terms of terror in our country.
Recep Tayyip Erdogan
An untrained or uneducated Marine … deployed to the combat zone is a bigger threat to mission accomplishment … than the enemy.
James Mattis
My overall worldview has never changed: that America has and must maintain the strongest military in the world, that we must lead the international community to confront threats and challenges together, and that we must use all tools of American power to protect our citizens and our interests.
Chuck Hagel
The attack on Americans in Benghazi on September 11, 2012 is a stark reminder that our nation must remain vigilant in protecting our citizens from the threat of Al-Qaeda and similar extremist terrorist entities around the world.
Bob Corker
It is a better world. A place where we ate responsible for our actions, where we can be kind to one another because we want to and becauseit is the right thing to do instead of being frightened into behaving by the threat of divine punishment.
Christopher Paolini
The Iraqi regime is a threat of unique urgency. […] It has developed weapons of mass death.
George W. Bush
Instant-doomsday hyperbole caused the world’s attention to focus on the hypothetical threat of global warming to the exclusion of environmental menaces that are real, palpable, and awful right now.
Gregg Easterbrook
I’ve always had a loud mouth, and for that I’ve gotten a lot of attention. I did falter in some big competitions in my career, but being counted out and not being seen as a threat is something I’m used to.
Johnny Weir
The medical establishment has become the major threat to health.
Ivan Illich
I asked Joe Weixlmann why he would print a death threat like that in light of the fact that there are all of these armed ideological nuts wandering around loose. He said that for him, to “ice” someone means to reprimand them.
Ishmael Reed
Diseases are a threat to us all. And so is climate change.
Alok Sharma
If you get rid of emotion for a minute and think about the threat of terrorism statistically, it’s not even there. The probability that you will slip on a wet floor in your bathroom and die is a thousand times higher than the probability of you dying as a result of terrorism.
Pavel Durov
[With] military threats, you can see them actually, you can imagine it. People don’t think about it enough. But if you think about it for a minute, you can see that a nuclear attack could be the end of everything.
Noam Chomsky
Every leader operates under the threat of assassination.
Hilary Mantel
There’s nothing funnier than getting a death threat via MySpace. Why don’t you just write it in a children’s birthday card.
Doug Stanhope
My legal wife is to me dead; the only ecclesiastical authority I recognise pronounces me free; the attacks and threats of men do not disturb me. I am acting according to a clear conscience, and am doing hurt to no man. For my conduct, I will answer to my maker.
William the Silent
Every time I went on TV I got a threat.
Ayaan Hirsi Ali
The forces of moderation and democracy must, and will, prevail against extremism and dictatorship. I will not be intimidated… Despite threats of death, I will not acquiesce to tyranny, but rather lead the fight against it.
Benazir Bhutto
The hero is valorous because he stands up to every threat directed against his values. Heroism requires value conflict.
Andrew Bernstein
[Donald Trump] basically has said, ‘No it’s more of a threat than an actual reality.’ I do not think we’re going to see tariffs put in place, but that would be the worry.
Maria Bartiromo
Through the threat of IS, we recognize how important the cooperation with intelligence services (inaudible) first and foremost also with the services of the United States is.
Angela Merkel
AugustineThe wounds of a friend are better than the kisses of an enemy. To love with sternness is better than to deceive with gentleness…. In Luke [14:23] it is written: “Compel people to come in!” By threats of the wrath of God, the Father draws souls to his Son.
Saint Augustine
it is not that religion is merely useless, it is mischievous. It is mischievous by its idle terrors; it is mischievous by its false morality; it is mischievous by its hypocrisy; by its fanaticism; by its dogmatism; by its threats; by its hopes; by its promises.
Frances Wright
Implicit in the stare of those eyes, the power of those knobbly hands, was labor’s historic threat of violence against capital.
Edmund Morris
At the national level, I don’t know how to describe a threat to destroy Country A in order to punish Country B other than to call it state terrorism.
Barry Eisler
Enslavement is when one person completely controls another person, uses violence or violent threats to maintain that control, exploits them economically, and pays them effectively nothing. Trafficking in persons is a process of enslaving someone.
Julia Ormond
Afghans long ago resigned themselves to this sort of thing. Compromises must be made. Deals with the devil are better than ceaseless butchery. In the exigencies of post-conflict bygones, against the threat of collapse into more terrible bloodletting, the ugliness of realpolitik is the lesser evil.
Terry Glavin
I think it is important for Europe to understand that even though I am president and George Bush is not president, Al Qaeda is still a threat.
Barack Obama
The Keystone XL pipeline is a threat to our nation. It would increase pollution and intensify climate change for generations to come. We must raise our voices and demand our leaders reject this dirty scheme.
Frances Beinecke
It’s funny – I was a big fan of ‘The Sopranos.’ It became kind of a threat to ‘The X-Files’ in a way because they could play with language, character, and story in ways that we never could because of the limitations of network television.
Chris Carter
For me, I read and react. I think when I have time and space, I’m a threat to score or a threat to make a really nice play.
Jack Hughes
He’s a threat to win until his brain turns to tapioca.
Gary McCord
I must say the Linux community is a lot nicer than the Unix community. A negative comment on Unix would warrent death threats. With Linux, it is like stirring up a nest of butterflies.
Kenneth P. Thompson
And I’m not sure why I’m infatuated with death,
My imagination is surely an aggravation of threats…
Maybe cause I’m a dreamer, and sleep is the cousin of death,
Really stuck in the scheme of wondering when I’mma rest.
Kendrick Lamar
The law I sign today directs new funds and new focus to the task of collecting vital intelligence on terrorist threats and on weapons of mass production.
George W. Bush
Government is, and always has been, the greatest criminal threat to the peaceful members of society.
Richard Ebeling
It’s far easier to brush off death if the death in question seems impossible or improbable as a personal threat.
Jennifer Armintrout
Oil prices have certainly become a threat for the world economy.
Rodrigo Rato
It’s okay to feel the need for protection if there is a real external threat. But to feel protective from the inside, it’s a kind of jail: you get so protective that you cannot get out of the box.
Tariq Ramadan
Is Stephen Harper using the imagined fear of widespread security threats to score political points before the next election?
Elizabeth May
Terrorism is a significant threat to peace and security, prosperity and people.
Ban Ki-moon
I doubt if there is one married person on earth who can be objective about divorce. It is always a threat, admittedly or not, and such a dire threat that it is almost a dirty word.
Nora Johnson
If you can’t force or are unwilling to force your people to follow you, with or without threats, you are not a leader.
Lee Kuan Yew
I most sincerely wish that the world in which we live be free from the threat of a nuclear holocaust and from the ruinous arms race. It is my cherished desire that peace be not separated from freedom which is the right of every nation. This I desire and for this I pray.
Lech Walesa
Globalisation, which benefits only multi-national companies and takes away all sense of local or national pride and identity, is the biggest threat facing all the member states of the EU.
Steve Blake
Human population growth is probably the single most serious long-term threat to survival. We’re in for a major disaster if it isn’t curbed…We have no option. If it isn’t controlled voluntarily, it will be controlled involuntarily by an increase in disease, starvation and war.
Prince Philip
Bio-terrorism is a threat.
Anthony Fauci
The most critical threat to our freedom is a failure to appreciate the power of truth.
Michael Novak
The threat of extinction is more real than many realise. And the damage done to elephants directly leads to destruction of the ecosystem.
Li Bingbing
If, as they say, the threat of the hangman’s noose has a powerful way of focusing one’s attention, the same can be said of pregnancy.
Walter Cronkite
His eyes widened just a bit, his lips flexed. I realized he was trying not to laugh. I hate it when people find my threats amusing.
Laurell K. Hamilton
I think global warming is the gravest threat. With global warming, it’s the product of a war between old energy – between the carbon cronies, who, by the way, could not stay in business in a true free market capitalism.
Robert Kennedy, Jr.
It was a defeat, resorting to crude threats in a game of subtlety, but sometimes one must sacrifice a battle to win the war.
Mark Lawrence
Admitting weakness seems to be such a severe psychic threat for Bush that when he makes a mistake it’s safer just to reinforce it. The strategy creates a perverse system of rewards and punishments.
Tina Brown
In the history of the world, all five mass extinctions have been accompanied by massive climate change, so we are facing an incredibly serious threat. In fact, we are technically in the sixth mass extinction right now, and it is the first mass extinction being attributed to humans.
Cameron Russell
Turkey knows the importance of its ties with Israel; it knows it’s in the same moderate camp with Israel, the moderate Palestinians and other Muslim countries, and the threat to Turkey is not from us.
Tzipi Livni
Obviously, untangling sex from aggression and violence or the threat of it is going to take a very long time. And the process is going to be greatly resisted as a challenge to the very heart of male dominance and male centrality.
Gloria Steinem
The opportunities and threats existing in any situation always exceed the resources needed to exploit the opportunities or avoid the threats. Thus, strategy is essentially a problem of allocating resources. If strategy is to be successful, it must allocate superior resources against a decisive opportunity.
William Cohen
…I made some more threats. I’ve got this big knife back here.” He poked his thumb over his shoulder. “It attracts a lot of attention sometimes.
David Eddings
The threat to globalization is not the wasted American dollars but Washington’s readiness to mix US commercial interests with its self-appointed role as global protector.
William Greider
In 1853, American warships bullied Japan out of centuries of virtual isolation and into the modern world. The threat of force compelled Japan, like India and China before it, to accept trade agreements that were economically ruinous and eroded national sovereignty.
Pankaj Mishra
Get inside before I spank you in public.” There it was again, another of his maddening threats. Did that mean he wouldn’t spank her if she did as he said or that he simply planned to spank her in private? She was still mulling over the whole unpleasant concept when he started the truck.
Susan Elizabeth Phillips
the biggest threat to the religious experience may well come from organized religion itself.
Diane Ackerman
To me, there is no greater threat than our debt. I’m the only fiscal conservative on the stage because I’m willing to hold the line on all spending.
Rand Paul
Part of my responsibility as an officer was to oversee a team of analysts charged with synthesizing all of the data points on the map to see how one related to another. By bringing those data points together, a broader picture could be drawn and a strategy developed to counter the existing threat.
Todd Young
The only thing we’re interested in as Greens is making sure that we are protecting Canada from an imminent threat and that imminent threat is the climate crisis.
Elizabeth May
There’s always new work to do. Adjusting to the rapid pace of technological change creates real challenges, seen most clearly in our polarized labor market and the threat that it poses to economic mobility. Rising to this challenge is not automatic. It’s not costless. It’s not easy. But it is feasible.
David Autor
Humans should be the Earth’s custodians, not its butchers. Much attention – though not enough – focuses on the existential threat posed by climate change. But humanity’s mass destruction of the Earth’s wildlife is all too little discussed.
Owen Jones
Just like Sept. 11, only with nuclear weapons this time, that’s the threat. I think that is the threat. I think it’s just facing reality. It’s not a happy reality, but it’s reality and if you don’t deal with it, it will become even more unpleasant.
John Bolton
Terrorism is a horrible thing that is the great threat to civilization on our planet.
Walter Isaacson
I want to become the president of all the people of France – the president of the patriots in the face of the threat from the nationalists.
Emmanuel Macron
Let’s remember that our leadership is defined not just by our defence against threats, but by the enormous opportunities to do good and promote understanding.
Barack Obama
The biggest threat to global stability is the potential for food crises in poor countries to cause government collapse.
Lester R. Brown
A State in the grip of neo-colonialism is not master of its own destiny. It is this factor which makes neo-colonialism such a serious threat to world peace.
Kwame Nkrumah
If religion and churches are truly threats to our liberties, how did those liberties survive, and in such healthy condition, all those years of classroom prayer and Bible-reading?
William Murchison
He shook my hand and said goodbye with a sentence that might have been either good advice or a threat: “Take good care of yourself.
Gabriel Garcia Marquez
If you leave me naked and waiting on the bed without making love to me, I’ll—” I didn’t get to finish the threat. I think it was the word “naked,” though maybe it was “bed,” but before I finished my sentence, he was on me. Mercy to Adam
Patricia Briggs
When we encounter an unexpected challenge of threat the only way to save ourselves is to hold on tight to the people around us and not let go.
Shawn Achor
The U.N. charter bars the threat of force.
Noam Chomsky
Britain was once notorious as the ‘dirty man of Europe’ with polluted air, raw sewage pumped into the sea and protected sites being lost at a terrifying rate. E.U. laws and the threat of fines changed much of that.
Caroline Lucas
Freedom… refer[s] to a social relationship among people-namely, the absence of force as a prospective instrument of decision making. Freedom is reduced whenever a decision is made under threat of force, whether or not force actually materializes or is evident in retrospect.
Thomas Sowell
We get death threats, kidnapping threats. The press criticizes my weight. It’s just the English way.
Victoria Beckham
A foreign threat is useful to put things in order in one’s own camp, to make one’s allies follow the bloc discipline. Iran does not fit this role too well, and it is very tempting to revive Russia’s image of the enemy. But nobody in Europe is afraid anymore.
Vladimir Putin
Well, there are certain pockets of improvement. The one that I think is most important is that state and local law enforcement levels have started to do a lot more educative efforts within their organizations to understand the kind of threat we’re facing. They’ve given up on the federal level.
Michael Scheuer
The Obama administration is an affront to every freedom-loving American,and a threat to every private sector job in this country.
Rick Perry
It takes truth, and it takes speaking truth to power, but because the stranglehold is so tight it seems to take something else – a real political threat.
Jill Stein
There’s no military solution to North Korea’s nuclear threats, forget it. Until somebody solves the part of the equation that shows me that ten million people in Seoul don’t die in the first 30 minutes from conventional weapons, I don’t know what you’re talking about, there’s no military solution here, they got us.
Stephen K. Bannon
Saddam was a threat, that the threat had to be dealt with.
Tony Blair
On November 13, 2005, as I was flying into Moscow from a weekend away, I was stopped at Sheremetyevo airport, detained for 15 hours, deported, and declared a threat to national security.
Bill Browder
less real than such threats as a man with a gun, a woman with a knife, or a U.S. Senator with an idea.
Dean Koontz
The anti-Semitic threats targeting our Jewish community and community centers are horrible and are painful and a very sad reminder of the work that still must be done to root out hate and prejudice and evil.
Donald Trump
Nonetheless, the research budgets of the Department of Defense are under enormous stress-and they are extremely important because they support more than 40 percent of all federal funding for engineering schools across the country. So the threat was and is real.
Charles Vest
The pace of change and the threat of disruption creates tremendous opportunities.
Steve Case
The United States is afraid of China; it is not a military threat to anyone and is the least aggressive of all the major military powers.
Noam Chomsky
Evolution teaches us the original purpose of language was to ritualize men’s threats and curses, his spells to compel the gods; communication came later.
Gene Wolfe
Tonight, with a new Iraqi government in place, and following consultations with allies abroad and Congress at home, I can announce that America will lead a broad coalition to roll back this terrorist threat.
Barack Obama
We begin with the common belief that Saddam Hussein is a tyrant and a threat to the peace and stability of the region. He has ignored the mandated of the United Nations and is building weapons of mass destruction and the means of delivering them.
Carl Levin
The Middle East is replete with both new and old threats. One should not underestimate these threats, but not be alarmed by them either. Israel is stronger today than ever.
Shimon Peres
Saddam Hussein is a threat, but the threat is not so great that we must be stampeded to provide such authority to this president just weeks before an election.
Robert Byrd
I am not a fan of the cupcake image. This idea that you can distract a girl with something frivolous like a cake or shoes or handbags, and she won’t be a threat to men.
Joanna Trollope
We physicians have focused on the nuclear threat as the singular issue of our era. We are not indifferent to other human rights and hard-won civil liberties. But first we must be able to bequeath to our children the most fundamental of all rights, which preconditions all others; the right to survival.
Bernard Lown
We are truly one nation, under God, indivisible and that we must remain so in the face of any threat to ensure our country remains strong, united and free.
Michael Enzi
Radicalisation or the risk of children being drawn into non violent extremism is a very real threat in this country.
Nicky Morgan
Cats, as you know, are quite impervious to threats.
Connie Willis
It isn’t inevitable that we have a globalization which is used by the corporations not to pay taxes. It is not inevitable that we have a form of globalization in which corporations use the threat of moving jobs abroad to lower wages. None of this is inevitable.
Joseph Stiglitz
While one should never underestimate the ability of risk-besotted financiers to wreak havoc, the real threat to capitalism isn’t unfettered financial cunning. It is, instead, the unwillingness of executives to confront the changing expectations of their stakeholders.
Gary Hamel
As a former undercover CIA officer, I’ve worked with my colleagues in the 114th Congress to approach the growing terrorist threat from a number of angles, including addressing the issue of terrorists’ ease of travel, combating terrorist recruitment strategies, and improving our own counterterrorism capabilities.
Will Hurd
The threat
of world’s end is the old threat.
Denise Levertov
We have found that the Ministry of Defence was slow in responding to the threat of improvised explosive devices and that delays in providing adequate medium-weight protected patrol vehicles should not have been tolerated.
John Chilcot
Getting back to inflation, it is important to note that the producer price Index does not reflect wage pressures – and that is where the inflation threat really lies.
Larry Wachtel
The threat is stronger than the execution.
Aron Nimzowitsch
We must never fear robbers or murderers. They are dangers from outside, small dangers. It is ourselves we have to fear. Prejudice is the real robber, vice the real murderer. Why should we be troubled by a threat to our person or our pocket? What we have to beware of is the threat to our souls’.
Victor Hugo
Artificial intelligence is a tool, not a threat
Rodney Brooks
If we get to a point where people in this country feel more affinity with a leader who is an adversary and view the United States and our way of life as a threat to him, then we’re gonna have bigger problems than just cyber hacking.
Barack Obama
If it’s not a contract I want then I won’t sign it. That’s not a threat.
Roy Keane
I am for it – not to make a threat, but to make clear that decisions that have been made are applicable law, even if you have voted against it. At issue here is European solidarity, which cannot be a one-way street. The traffic has to move in both directions.
Jean-Claude Juncker
While other individuals or institutions obtain their income by production of goods and services and by the peaceful and voluntary sale of these goods and services to others, the State obtains its revenue by the use of compulsion; that is, by the use and the threat of the jailhouse and the bayonet.
Murray Rothbard
Today, it is more important than ever to strengthen transatlantic relations. Only by co-operating closely can the EU and the US continue to make a difference when dealing with unprecedented challenges such as Daesh, the threats to Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, climate change and migration.
Donald Tusk
We should differentiate between criminals who make violent threats online, and trolls who are just arseholes
Bonnie Greer
In the right circumstances, MDMA reduces or sometimes eliminates the neurophysiological fear response to a perceived threat to one’s emotional integrity… With a barrier of fear removed, a loving and forgiving awareness seemed to occur quite naturally and spontaneously.
George Greer
I eat death threats for breakfast!
Miriam Defensor Santiago
Economic power is exercised by means of a positive, by offering men a reward, an incentive, a payment, a value; political power is exercised by means of a negative, by the threat of punishment, injury, imprisonment, destruction. The businessman’s tool is values; the bureaucrat’s tool is fear.
Ayn Rand
Many defense experts have predicted that we face no greater threat from a single country than from Iran.
Cathy McMorris Rodgers
The death of compromise has become a threat to our nation as we confront crucial issues such as the debt ceiling and that most basic of legislative responsibilities: a federal budget. At stake is the very meaning of what had once seemed unshakable: ‘the full faith and credit’ of the U.S. government.
Deborah Tannen
Having a body is in itself the greatest threat to the mind… The body encloses the mind in a fortress; before long the mind is besieged on all sides, and in the end the mind has to give itself up.
Marcel Proust
We must not descend to the level of those who perpetrated Tuesday’s violence by targeting individuals based on their race, their religion, or their national origin. Such reports of violence and threats are in direct opposition to the very principles and laws of the United States and will not be tolerated.
John Ashcroft
Democrats have a long history of utilizing the threat of a potential Ebola outbreak to request massive federal funds while attacking Republicans for expressing skepticism over their funding schemes.
Aaron Klein
Every threat to the family is a threat to society itself. So protect your families! See in them your country’s greatest treasure and nourish them always by prayer and the grace of the sacraments.
Pope Francis
While we see democracy coming to the Arab world, democracy is getting weaker in Israel. Democracy is in jeopardy in Israel, and this threat is greater than the external threat.
Tom Segev
When we respond to threats immediately and take action right away, it’s usually the threats that we’re hard-wired to respond to, the kinds of things that our ancestors survived.
Al Gore
There is no doubt that the actions of ISIS are designed to amplify their power and the threat that they pose. That helps them recruit. That adds in the twisted thoughts of some young person that they might want to have carry out an action that somehow they’re part of a larger movement.
Barack Obama
We have reason to feel good, but it’s also a threat to feel too good and I will pay attention that that doesn’t happen.
Sebastian Vettel
I generally use ‘threat intelligence’ when I’m talking about a product packaged and sold by a dedicated commercial entity and ‘information sharing’ as something that happens between security teams at trusted parties without renumeration.
Alex Stamos
The aim of militants such as Boko Haram, whose very name means ‘Western education is a sin,’ is to sow hatred and enmity between Muslim and Christian communities, which have co-existed largely peacefully for generations. Education, in particular the education of women, is a threat to Boko Haram’s goals.
Ann Cotton
The threat from the far right is as corrosive as the twisted Islamist ideologies so many Muslims have spoken out against.
Amber Rudd
Turtles are very stable and have been around forever. But they have problems adapting. When humans came along, turtles came under serious threat. Biodiversity is good, and I think it is good in technology as well.
Linus Torvalds
I don’t believe that Russia’s a threat for Europe. I think that’s a big scam.
Marine Le Pen
By all means, avoid words—threats, complaints, justification, narratives, reframing, attempts to win arguments, supplications; avoid words!
Nassim Nicholas Taleb
The first thing that matters: I am a child of the eighties. I grew up in a neon wonderland of talking horses, compassionate bears, hair that didn’t move in a stiff wind, and the constant threat of nuclear war.
Seanan McGuire
I introduced legislation in the Senate that I believe is more narrowly focused at the actual threat, which is radical Islamic terrorism, and what my legislation would do is suspend all refugees for three years from countries where ISIS or Al Qaida control substantial territory.
Ted Cruz
I think in many ways that we autistic are the normal ones and the rest of the people are pretty strange. They keep saying that climate change is an existential threat and the most important issue of all. And yet they just carry on like before.
Greta Thunburg
You know what our number one threat is? Heart disease.
Louis C. K.
To misunderstand the nature and threat of evil is to risk being blindsided by it.
Joel C. Rosenberg
Certainly, the JCPOA was not a perfect agreement. It did not deal with the threat from Iranian missiles, or their support for violent extremism. And it contains a ‘sunset clause,’ meaning it expires after a decade. But it was accomplishing the one goal it set out to achieve: stopping Iran from developing nuclear weapons.
Joe Sestak
An element of virtually every national security threat and crime problem the FBI faces is cyber-based or facilitated. We face sophisticated cyber threats from state-sponsored hackers, hackers for hire, organized cyber syndicates, and terrorists.
James Comey
Our top story, in ‘Threat Matrix Reloaded’ news … Attorney General John Ashcroft and FBI Director Robert Muller held a press conference today to announce that Al Qaeda is planning attacks somewhere inside the United States at sometime in the future. So go about your normal lives, but with a vague sense of foreboding.
Craig Kilborn
We are now at a point where because we in fact have been successful at stopping a number of plots, a threat has evolved. We do see these lone-wolf actors. We do see these encouragements for troubled individuals to pick up a gun and act out of this ideology.
Barack Obama
I looked at him. “You really need to work on your threats. I can’t tell if you’re threatening me or inviting me for tea.
Ilona Andrews
When we watch a play under the standard circumstances, we’ve lost volition and time is passing. A still play feels like an existential threat.
Richard Greenberg
Enthusiasm for the universe, in knowing as well as in creating, also answers the question of doubt and meaninglessness. Doubt is the necessary tool of knowledge. And meaninglessness is no threat so long as enthusiasm for the universe and for man as its center is alive.
Paul Tillich
We are not good at recognizing distant threats even if their probability is 100%. Society ignoring [peak oil] is like the people of Pompeii ignoring the rumblings below Vesuvius.
James R. Schlesinger
As a long-time supporter of Israel, I will ensure that our alliance does not waver, and that America continues to support Israeli security, advocate for her on the international stage, and contain the threat from Iran and terrorism across the region.
Dan Crenshaw
I don’t think there’s anything, any threat out there today that anyone can point to, that justifies placing an entire population under mass surveillance.
Edward Snowden
If we look to our responsibility to the generations yet unborn who will come after us, how can we fail to recognize that peace and freedom are inextricably bound up one with another and that the threat to one is a threat to both
Winston Churchill
Whenever you try to do good with someone else’s money, you are committed to using force. How can you do good with somebody else’s money, unless you first take it away from them? The only way you can take it away from them is the threat of force: you have a policeman, tax collector, who comes and takes it from them.
Milton Friedman
If you’re going to be a championship-caliber team or a threat to be a championship-caliber team you have to play a 200-foot game and you have to produce on both ends of the ice.
Barry Trotz
If you look at those matters, you will come to the conclusion that the attitude of the United States of America is a threat to world peace.
Nelson Mandela
All of our intelligence agencies, our Department of Defense, are all working to meet this threat. But it’s a fast moving world; it’s a place where offense is easier than defense, and keeping up with the next innovation in cyber-warfare is an enormous challenge.
Mike Pompeo
Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Lead levels exceeding federal thresholds pose a serious public health threat, particularly for more vulnerable populations.
Elizabeth Esty
I do not think classical music faces any threat because new music is being made through computer, as the real charm of classical is its purity, and one who is seeking purity will surely find classical music in spite of so many alternatives.
Adnan Sami
I’m obviously aware that people are quite focused on the economy rather than foreign policy issues, but that is something that should and can be altered as people see the nature of the threats around the world that we face.
John Bolton
From a parent’s right to know what their children are doing, to protecting citizens across the country from the growing threat of gang violence, the House Democrat leadership is simply out to lunch.
Virginia Foxx
I’ve made it clear for years that the threat from Iran is grave.
Barack Obama
I do realize that it’s important to be a threat at the 3-point line.
Al Horford
[N]othing is less reliable than unchecked claims from political officials that their secret conduct is justified by National Security Threats and the desire to Keep Us Safe.
Glenn Greenwald
The revelation that the National Security Agency has been secretly amassing data on countless law-abiding American citizens has aroused great concern about the potential threat such an effort poses to liberty.
Robert Zubrin
Toxic chemicals present in our homes, schools, work and recreational spaces present a real threat to our health and are increasing cancer risk.
Margaret Cuomo
I do believe that Russia is a major threat to the United States in Ukraine and around the world, and our oath requires us to put our country first, always.
Conor Lamb
The threat that ISIL presents and poses to the United States is very different in kind, in type and degree than al Qaeda. ISIL is not your parents’ al Qaeda. It’s a very different model.
James Comey
Even when a person is frightened by threats into doing something, the threats work only because the person has an instinct of fear. If he has not, or if, though having it, it is under his own control, the threat has no more influence upon him than light has in causing a person to see who has no eyes.
John Dewey
My group, the Lawyers Committee on Nuclear Policy, was one of the principle organizers. So, there was this campaign to support the United Nations General Assembly in asking the International Court of Justice for an advisory opinion on the legality of threat or use of nuclear weapons.
John Burroughs
Bitcoin represents a significant threat to the currency domination of the USA, which is the only thing propping up the nation’s status as a worldwide superpower.
Rick Falkvinge
COVID-19 is a serious public health threat.
Theresa Tam
I worked with two young women translators. One died and the other received a death threat from the Taliban.
Eliza Griswold
Living under the perpetual and pervasive threat of racism seems, for black men and black women, to quite literally reduce lifespans.
Clint Smith
Today the Justice Department did issue a blanket alert. It was in recognition of a general threat we received. This is not the first time the Justice Department have acted like this. I hope it is the last. But given the attitude of the evildoers, it may not be.
George W. Bush
In effect, I was asking that if Russia mobilized against Austria, the German Government, who had been supporting the Austrian demand on Serbia, should ask Austria to consider some modification of her demands, under the threat of Russian mobilization.
Edward Grey
Islamic extremism may well be the greatest threat to Western values and Western security in the world.
Newt Gingrich
We have to realize that ISIS and Islamic terrorists are not only a threat to America. They are a threat to all of Western society.
Todd Wilcox
We are in a race between cooperation and catastrophe, and the threat is outrunning our response.
Sam Nunn
The scale of the ISIS threat is not yet matched by a clarity of approach for securing their defeat.
Douglas Alexander
For my generation, coming of age at the height of the Cold War, fear of nuclear winter seemed the leading existential threat on the horizon. But the danger posed by war to all humanity-and to our planet-is at least matched by climate change.
Ban Ki-moon
As you can see, even when [Adolf] Hitler desires to speak for peace, he cannot dispense with threats. This is symptomatic.
Joseph Stalin
Climate change constitutes a serious threat to global security, an immediate risk to our national security, and, make no mistake, it will impact how our military defends our country.
Barack Obama
When legitimately constituted state authority stands down in the face of armed threats, the very foundation of the republic is in danger.
Rick Perlstein
Admitting weakness seems to be such a severe psychic threat for Bush that when he makes a mistake it’s safer just to reinforce it. The strategy creates a perverse system of rewards and punishments
Tina Brown
Having witnessed first-hand the prowess of the Western Fleet, I am confident that the Indian Navy is fully capable of defending the nation against any form of threat.
Nirmala Sitharaman
Spiraling demand for resources of which our world contains a finite supply is the great long-term threat posed by globalisation. That is why we need new technology to relieve it.
Peter Thiel
I drank lots of water and orange juice and took a multivitamin and iron supplement for breakfast, which was my regimen since Bill had come into my life and brought (along with love, adventure, and excitement) the constant threat of anemia.
Charlaine Harris
Assessing any possible threat is one thing, but pressing into a full investigation without facts of a crime or national security threat violates standard procedure.
Dan Bongino
Even though we know the origin of diseases, panic sweeps. It’s one thing that frightens us, because it’s your health and your body – it’s more like a tangible threat; it’s not like a foreign enemy you can fight. That was really what was uppermost to many of us whilst making ‘Black Death.’
Kimberley Nixon
What Clinton did with Lewinsky was despicable but was no threat to the nation. That he lied about it repeatedly and to the public is a reason for us to cease to trust him and for him to resign.
Donella Meadows
I don’t have a brief for every single reaction of Israel, but I think it is important that the political negotiations occur free of the threat of terrorism.
Henry A. Kissinger
Apprehension is natural, but it must not be concluded that it is a threat. Certainly not.
Sellapan Ramanathan
We believe, as the President has indicated, that this combination of a rogue state that possesses weapons of mass destruction and has known ties to terrorist organizations, is a grave threat to the people of the United States and to other countries around the world.
Paul Cellucci
I think it’s safe to say that mass shootings pose a gigantic threat to national security.
Ana Kasparian
The enemy is not just terrorism. It is the threat posed specifically by Islamist terrorism, by Bin Ladin and others who draw on a long tradition of extreme intolerance within a minority strain of Islam that does not distinguish politics from religion, and distorts both.
John Cornyn
Change is no threat to culture.
Wade Davis
Fundamentalist Christianity is not just a threat to lesbians and gays, but to all Americans who cherish democracy and the rights and protections guaranteed us by the U.S. constitution.
Mel White
When I joined the Army in the late ’70s, there was a real threat from Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union, so all of the ’80s, I was engaged in what could be classed as conventional operations – that involved digging lots of trenches in Germany.
Dick Strawbridge
I face the world as it is and cannot stand idle in the face of threats to the American people. For make no mistake, evil does exist in the world.
Barack Obama
The threat or fear of violence should not become an excuse or justification for restricting freedom of speech.
Alan Dershowitz
Yes, ISIS is a threat. It’s more than a nuisance. It’s also in many respects criminal violence. But it isn’t, in my view, a central strategic issue facing humanity.
Zbigniew Brzezinski
We favor a strong nonproliferation program that emphasizes diplomacy, reliance on multilateral regimes, controls on nuclear materials, and cooperative nuclear threat reduction.
George W. Bush
Now we have a generational threat struggle called Islamist extremism.
Michael McCaul
They [Federal Goverment] don’t care if I am guilty or innocent. I serve their purpose in here. Other than what I have mentioned, what fear could they possibly have from a old man with dimming eyesight, arthritis, diabetes, and other health issues that render me hardly a threat to anyone.
Leonard Peltier
A minority is only thought of as a minority when it constitutes some kind of threat to the majority, real or imaginary. And no threat is ever quite imaginary.
Christopher Isherwood
… mutual lack of understanding carries the threat of imminent and violent destruction.
Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
The way the terrorist is trained to operate, especially the suicide terrorists, makes punishment and the threat of punishment far less valuable to those who would prevent the crime
John Ashcroft
Press Freedom will never be under threat in South Africa for as long as the ANC is the majority party
Nelson Mandela
From the Israeli perspective, the fear is that if pressure is off of Iran, Israel would be left having to accept the balance of power in the region significantly shifting toward Iran. It’s not an existential threat, but it would definitely be a problem for Israel.
Trita Parsi
When we think of the major threats to our national security, the first to come to mind are nuclear proliferation, rogue states and global terrorism. But another kind of threat lurks beyond our shores, one from nature, not humans – an avian flu pandemic.
Barack Obama
And if you’re not going to have a clear health threat, you don’t want to panic people.
William Scranton
In these xenophobic times, when politicians are stoking everyone’s anxiety about threats from abroad, I would argue that engaging with the rest of the world is not only a luxury, in the way that travel is, but actually a moral responsibility.
Andrew Solomon
You know, people have actually changed the way they think about nuclear weapons now, post-Cold War, post-9/11. The threat of nuclear weapons is not so much Russia attacking the United States, China. It’s not a state-to-state – it’s obviously terrorism; it’s proliferation.
Lawrence Bender
We should never go to war unless we have been attacked or are under direct, immediate threat of attack. Never. And never again.
Joe Klein
The similarity between Van Gogh, Haiku poetry, and good photography is the concern for mortality. That things are very fleeting, that there are people who are more sensitive to death than others. The threat of time is of great concern to them. And the camera is a very appropriate instrument for many.
Dennis Stock
There’s no question but that a nuclear Iran, a nuclear-capable Iran is unacceptable to America. It presents a threat not only to our friends but ultimately a threat to us to have Iran have nuclear material, nuclear weapons that could be used against us or used to be threatening to us.
Mitt Romney
Even in the most peaceful communities, an appetite for violence shows up in dreams, fantasies, sports, play, literature, movies and television. And, so long as we don’t transform into angels, violence and the threat of violence – as in punishment and deterrence – is needed to rein in our worst instincts.
Paul Bloom
In Egypt: Under no conditions, under threat of death could anyone kill a cat. People were exceuted for even killing a cat accidentally. And when a cat died, the whole family, and probably their closest friends, went into mourning, the measure of their personal loss signalled by their shaving off their eyebrows.
Roger Caras
I’m afraid that it’s not possible to design a defense against every conceivable threat that you can think of.
Steven Weinberg
To be haunted by my heart is no threat.
Nalini Singh
Israel has an absolute right to exist – not only to exist – but to exist in a way that they’re not under threat of terrorism.
Bernie Sanders
And there will continue to be a specific threat, and there will continue to be terrorism, as there has been for as long as human history exists.
Ted Koppel
I had many, many, many death threats. I couldn’t open letters for a long time, because they all had to be opened by either the FBI or somebody.
Hank Aaron
See yourself reacting to threats, not by running away or evading them, but by meeting them, dealing with them, grappling with them in an aggressive intelligent manner.
Maxwell Maltz
The newspapers do little better. Their coverage of nonhuman animals is dominated by “human interest” events like the birth of a baby gorilla at the zoo, or by threats to endangered species; but developments in farming techniques that deprive millions of animals of freedom of movement go unreported.
Peter Singer
Marshall was a pioneering player. As a threat in so many different aspects of football, he revolutionized the way in which the running back position was played. He was the player that I wanted to emulate.
Tiki Barber
Typically, you get a year in prison for making a threat to assassinate the president.
Megyn Kelly
According to international law, in order to use force, we need to feel, we need good evidence that we are under imminent threat of actual attack. And I think we need to stand up for international law.
Jill Stein
Without constant activity, the threats of life will soon overwhelm the values.
Jim Rohn
But you are also the biggest threat of all …You are a gay person I like. Your threat is that you make being gay seem non-threatening. It’s almost as if your happiness does not take mine away.
Stephen Colbert
There are two kinds of idiots – those who don’t take action because they have received a threat, and those who think they are taking action because they have issued a threat.
Paulo Coelho
The threat has changed from simply worrying about foreigners coming here, to worrying about people in the United States, American citizens – raised here, born here, and who for whatever reason, have decided that they are going to become radicalized and take up arms against the nation in which they were born.
Eric Holder
So if everything goes off great, then it being a triple threat match will make it even more exciting instead of a singles match.
Adam Cole
In the future, the cyber threat will equal or even eclipse the terrorist threat.
Robert Mueller
‘Years of Living Dangerously’ is a wonderful opportunity to reach a lot of people with the story and importance of climate change in our lives; in recent history, there’s no bigger threat to the quality of human life than what is taking place right now in respect of climate change.
Harrison Ford
I am convinced that Christian fundamentalism is a far greater threat to this country than Muslim terrorists could ever be.
Mel White
It would require a singularly stupid man to go hang around in narrow tunnels and cramped spaces alongside a threat like that. “And I, Harry Dresden, am that man,” I stated.
Jim Butcher
At some point we must make a decision not to allow the mere threat of charges of cultural or religious insensitivity to stop us from dealing with this evil
Armstrong Williams
Coal is the single greatest threat to civilization and all life on our planet.
James Hansen
Time is a gift and a threat because we are bodily creatures. We only come into existence through the bodies of others, but that very body destines us to death. We must be born and we must die.
Stanley Hauerwas
You will tell me what you know now,” he said. “Or?” He said nothing, so I elaborated. “See, this kind of threat usually has an ‘or’ attached to it. Or an ‘and’. ‘Tell me and I’ll allow you to live’ or something like that.
Ilona Andrews
If you’re a Republican who’s a threat to the Democrats, of course you are a racist. That’s the definition of a racist, nowadays.
Glenn Reynolds
Violence against judges and threats of violence against Judges is on the rise and it is no laughing matter. When leaders attempt to rationalize this violence, it only makes the problem worse.
John Conyers
As more and more people awaken to the threats against our basic rights online, we must start a debate – everywhere – about the web we want.
Tim Berners-Lee
A Newsweek poll said if the election were held today, John Kerry would beat Bush 49 percent to 46 percent. And today, President Bush called Newsweek magazine a threat to world peace.
Jay Leno
For most of us even the imagined threat of criticism functions to control our behavior. We are haunted to some degree by questions about our self-worth. As a consequence, we continually attempt to prove to ourselves and others that we are okay people, credible, trustworthy, and competent.
Robert D. Hare
The right to a quality education is, I believe, the perfect path to bridge the gap between different cultures and to reconcile various civilizations. Without such a right, the values of liberty, justice and equality will have no meaning. Ignorance is by far the biggest danger and threat to humankind.
Moza bint Nasser
Apprehension is natural, but it must not be concluded that it is a threat. Certainly not.
S. R. Nathan
ISIS is a threat to all civilized nations. America’s intention is that the foreign fighters do not survive the fight to return home to North Africa, to Europe, to America, to Asia, to Africa. We’re not going to allow them to do so. We’re going to stop them there and take apart the caliphate.
James Mattis
In my humble opinion, preserving racial purity isn’t a worthwhile goal. You should be able to date whomever, whenever, wherever without the threat of a backlash.
Candace Kita
For years, I referred to climate change as an ‘existential’ threat to human civilization, and called it a ‘crisis.’
Michael Shellenberger
Equally, the Internet interprets attempts at proprietary control as threats and mobilizes to defeat them.
Eric S. Raymond
The International Declaration of Human Rights says the right to housing, health, education should be guaranteed to everyone. The moment these things are provided, we will have a different world order and nuclear weapons will become less of a threat.
Bernard Lown
Steve Bannon is the biggest threat to democracy that we’ve faced since the Civil War, but in the Civil War the champion of democracy was in the White House. So, even then, we were probably in less danger as a country than we are right now.
Van Jones
The threat today is not that of the 1930s. It’s not big powers going to war with each other. The ravages which fundamentalist political ideology inflicted on the 20th century are memories. The Cold war is over. Europe is at peace, if not always diplomatically.
Tony Blair
That, by the way, is perhaps the most ludicrous comment I’ve ever heard, that climate change is a bigger threat to our country than radical Islamic terrorism.
Jeb Bush
Saddam Hussein has been engaged in the development of weapons of mass destruction technology which is a threat to countries in the region and he has made a mockery of the weapons inspection process.
Nancy Pelosi
My guard stood hard when abstract threats, too noble to neglect, deceived me into thinking, I had something to protect.
Bob Dylan
Here’s the reality: There is always a credible threat, and terror can strike at any time, anywhere, especially as lone wolf attacks backed up by Islamic ideology become more prevalent.
Katie Pavlich
Liberty is only valued when it is threatened, therefore it is the threat that highlights the value. We should be grateful to the Nadir, since they heighten the value of our liberty.
David Gemmell
The proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and their means of delivery is a threat to both the Nato allies and Russia.
Anders Fogh Rasmussen
The community of nations may see more and more of the very kind of threat Iraq poses now: a rogue state with weapons of mass destruction, ready to use them or provide them to terrorists. If we fail to respond today, Saddam and all those who would follow in his footsteps will be emboldened tomorrow.
William J. Clinton
There was no imminent threat. This was made up in Texas, announced in January to the Republican leadership that war was going to take place and was going to be good politically. This whole thing was a fraud.
Edward Kennedy
Our imagination and reasoning powers facilitate anxiety; the anxious feeling is precipitated not by an absolute impending threat-such as the worry about an examination, a speech, travel-but rather by the symbolic and often unconscious representations.
Willard Gaylin
Christ was crucified by the Jews who had wanted a temporal ruler to rescue them from the oppressive Roman authorities. Instead God sent them a spiritual leader to rescue them from their sins…. He was not what the Jews had expected so they considered Him a threat. Thus He was put to death.
Paul Weyrich
Our evolutionary psychology preconditions us not to respond to threats which can be postponed until later.
Mark Lynas
It is easier to confront a threat as a mass, a group, not individuals who must be evaluated one by one.
Cassandra Clare
Politicians in Europe want change. The United States and China will follow this trend. One could see this is a threat, but it’s also an opportunity. We at BMW want to take advantage of this and, through innovations, place ourselves at the forefront.
Norbert Reithofer
As fire when thrown into water is cooled down and put out, so also a false accusation when brought against a man of the purest and holiest character, boils over and is at once dissipated, and vanishes.
Marcus Tullius Cicero
When twenty years of the Moon’s reign have passed another will take up his reign for seven thousand years. When the exhausted Sun takes up his cycle then my prophecy and threats will be accomplished.
The greatest threat to your ministry, dear brothers, is that you lose your joy in God.
John Piper
After the Donald Trump’s election, there was a surge of hate crimes. We saw acts of vandalism, certainly a lot of slander on social media and, in fact, in the last few months, as you mentioned, a number of bomb threats, almost 70, to dozens of Jewish community centers across the country.
Jonathan Greenblatt
The greatest threats to North Dakota are policies coming out of Washington, D.C. I see it every day and feel a sense of responsibility to do something about it.
Kevin Cramer
The greatest threat that the world faces is a nuclear Iran. A nuclear North Korea is already troubling enough.
Mitt Romney
I mean, there was a serious international effort to say to Saddam Hussein: ‘You’re a threat’. And the 9/11 attacks accentuated that threat, as far as I’m concerned.
George W. Bush
While I was the mayor of BogotГЎ, I received occasional death threats. Therefore, I had to use a bullet-proof vest. I made a hole right where my heart is. The hole was in the shape of a heart. I believe this kind of gesture, gave me indeed more protection.
Antanas Mockus
A threat to our freedom is a threat to our freedom, whether from a terrorist or from a trade deal.
Marianne Williamson
No man threatens His Grace in the presence of the Kingsguard.” Tyrion Lannister raised an eyebrow. “I am not threatening the king, ser, I am educating my nephew. Bronn, Timett, the next time Ser Boros opens his mouth, kill him.” The dwarf smiled. “Now that was a threat, ser. See the difference?
George R. R. Martin
The crucial thing is to arouse the awareness that as a matter of human conscience we can never permit the people of any country to fall victim to nuclear weapons, and for each individual to express their refusal to continue living in the shadow of the threat they pose.
Daisaku Ikeda
None of us condone terrorism in any way, shape, or form, and I believe Hezbollah is a terrorist organization that was, is, and remains a threat to peace in the Mideast, and must be dismantled and disarmed.
John Conyers
Above all, we shall wage no more unilateral, ill-planned, ill-considered, and ill-prepared invasions of foreign countries that pose no actual threat to our security.
Theodore C. Sorensen
Patriotism is an ephemeral motive that scarcely ever outlasts the particular threat to society that aroused it.
Denis Diderot
Threats to our standing in the eyes of others are remarkably potent biologically, almost as powerful as those to our very survival.
Daniel Goleman
The doctrine of the immortality of the soul has more threat than comfort.
Mason Cooley
The major threats to our survival no longer stem from nature without but from our own human nature within. It is our carelessness, our hostilities, our selfishness and pride and willful ignorance that endanger the world.
M. Scott Peck
When it comes to setting national priorities, determining threats, defining challenges, and fashioning and implementing foreign and defense policies, the United States and Europe have parted ways.
Robert Kagan
Storytellers are a threat. They threaten all champions of control, they frighten usurpers of the right-to-freedom of the human spirit — in state, in church or mosque, in party congress, in the university or wherever.
Chinua Achebe
Wildlife crime goes well beyond just a threat to endangered species but also has impacts on our society, economy and security. It undermines efforts to uphold the rule of law, acts as an agent for corruption, creates a barrier to development and fuels global instability.
David Lidington
At the time I discovered that I had prostate cancer, it was not long after my first wife had died, so my children had lost their mum. I felt that to tell them that I had prostate cancer, while I knew that I had it and there was a threat of some sort, I felt that it would be wise not to make things worse for them.
Christopher Timothy
He [Ranger] peeled my [Stephanie] clothes off and wrangled me into bed. And then suddenly he was inside me. He once told me that time spent with him would ruin me for all other men. When he said it, I thought it was an outrageous threat. I no longer though it outrageous.
Janet Evanovich
How we think about terrorism has to be defined and specific enough that it doesn’t lead us to think that any horrible actions that take place around the world that are motivated in part by an extremist Islamic ideology is a direct threat to us or something that we have to wade into.
Barack Obama
Change is not a threat to your life, but an invitation to live.
Adrienne Rich
The Divas Revolution didn’t have the great start that I wanted it to have, but through time, it has got to where I want it to be, starting with the Triple Threat Match at Wrestle Mania. Our faces were in the middle of the stadium, which proves we are getting equal opportunities.
Sasha Banks
New terms used like, ‘overseas contingency operation’ instead of the word ‘war’ – that reflects a worldview that is out of touch with the enemy that we face. We can’t spin our way out of this threat.
Sarah Palin
In religion, there’s a certain type of fear that if somebody believes differently from me, that it’s a threat. Because I’m right, and there cannot be two ways that are right, so if I’m right, anything different than this must be wrong; and we attack those things and it’s really due to insecurity, ego and fear.
Radhanath Swami
In my view, and in the view of a lot of intelligence experts, the terrorist threat that we face now has morphed significantly from the days of 9/11 to homegrown violent extremism. We have to be concerned and focused on homegrown violent extremism, countering violent extremism that exists within our borders.
Jeh Johnson
Donald Trump represents a threat both to the party and to the country. I believe he makes the world far more dangerous, I believe he puts America’s economy in jeopardy. And his temperament is totally unsuited for the presidency.
Mitt Romney
In a world of asynchronous threats, it is too dangerous for there not to be some way to identify you. We need a [verified] name service for people. Governments will demand it.
Eric Schmidt
I’ve had death threats, but I’ve never been fearful for my life. Although I have traveled with security since the ’60s.
Hugh Hefner
Through the ballot, we can defend our democracy from the threat of dictatorship.
Joseph Estrada
The largest threat to freedom, democracy, the market economy and prosperity, is no longer socialism. It is, instead, the ambitious, arrogant, unscrupulous ideology of environmentalism.
Vaclav Klaus
And let us be frank, the security threats that emanate from our ports come from foreign cargo.
Dana Rohrabacher
I simply cannot fathom the horrors of being enslaved, and the thought that children are ripped apart from their families and used year in and out for sex and hard labor under the threat of violence and death breaks my heart.
Gillian Anderson
The Constitution poses no threat to our current form of government.
Joseph Sobran
At the opposite pole from the gift is tribute – that is, a grant made out of fear and under threat. A threat is a statement of the form “you do something that I want or I will do something that you do not want.
Kenneth E. Boulding
I believe we should use any and all means necessary to take out people who pose a threat to us and our friends around the world.
Mitt Romney
None of the prophets old,
So lofty or so bold!
No form of danger shakes his dauntless breast;
In loneliness sublime
He dares confront the time,
And speak the truth, and give the world no rest
No kingly threat can cowardize his breath,
He with majestic step goes forth to meet his death.
Abraham Coles
Anytime you go back and listen to old material, there’s always the threat of being surprised.
Samuel Ervin Beam
(A)ny time you buy weapons, or build an army, you begin to look for an excuse to use them. Plus, you pose more of a threat to others.
Cinda Williams Chima
Clean air and a healthy climate benefit all of us, but it will take a diverse coalition to step up to the threat posed by unchecked climate change.
Keith Ellison
After Hitler was destroyed, there was the threat of Stalin, but it was always the world pressure that was upon America that enabled black people to go forward. It was not the initiative internally that the Negro put forth in America, nor was it a change of moral heart on the part of Uncle Sam it was world pressure.
Malcolm X
WikiLeaks is irritating and annoying for Germany, but not a threat. From an international perspective, I see their actions as totally irresponsible.
Thomas de Maiziere
The U.S. efforts to impose its policies on others are expanding as a threat to all.
Hassan Rouhani
It has only been within my lifetime that asteroids have been considered a credible threat to our planet. And since then, there’s been a focused effort underway to discover and catalog these objects. I am lucky enough to be part of this effort. I’m part of a team of scientists that use NASA’s NEOWISE telescope.
Carrie Nugent
Overfishing is an obvious threat to our capacity to feed ourselves.
Tim Winton
There were good jobs, but they were never what I wanted to do. Somehow, people always thought of Wilma Rudolph as a threat.
Wilma Rudolph
People hate you for 1 of 3 reasons. 1) They hate themselves 2) They want to be you 3) They see you as a threat When you love yourself you are incapable of hating anyone no matter what they’ve done.
Tony Gaskins
The threat of taking something away makes us appreciate it more.
Simone Elkeles
The small companies who feel that the majors are a threat, or are predators, will use that as an excuse for their eventual downfall. Don’t blame others for your own inadequacies.
Greg Ginn
Scaremongering is an age-old political ritual. There are public officials who have benefited by playing up the ‘hacker threat’ so that they can win approval by cracking down on it.
Charles Platt
Climate change is the greatest threat to humanity, perhaps ever. Global temperatures are rising at an unprecedented rate, causing drought and forest fires and impacting human health.
Cary Kennedy
If the devil never roars, the Church will never sing! God is not doing much if the devil is not awake and busy. Depend upon it: a working Christ makes a raging devil! When you hear ill reports, cruel speeches, threats, taunts and the like, believe that the Lord is among His people and is working gloriously.
Charles Spurgeon
Most people aren’t lying awake at night worrying about a nuclear threat. But we are unnerved by a lot of how technology is coming into our lives and starting to infuse our lives. And we question whether that’s a good thing or a bad thing.
Alan Taylor
Of course the decision to commit British forces in Iraq was, for many MPs, a wrenching choice. However, our responsibility in the face of a growing ISIS threat is not to be paralysed by history, but to learn the correct lessons from it.
Douglas Alexander
I would consider the principal threats to start with Russia. And it would certainly include any nations that are looking to intimidate nations around their periphery, regional nations nearby them, whether it be with weapons of mass destruction or I would call it unusual, unorthodox means of intimidating them.
James Mattis
[Barack] Obama’s out there saying it’s the number one national security threat [climate change], and he’s got his Joint Chiefs of Staff out there planning American battles, military engagements on that basis.
Rush Limbaugh
China, Russia, Iran and other adversaries each pose a threat to our elections, and the Trump administration seeks to counter all of those threats in a serious, professional and apolitical fashion.
Robert C. O’Brien
If the publicly passed campaign finance laws had not been struck down by the Supreme Court, Club for Growth Action would be illegal, and Heritage Action wouldn’t have the SuperPAC threat to back up its small ad purchases.
Zephyr Teachout
No guy on the basketball court is a threat to score with LeBron James out there. Not only will LeBron dominate from the offensive end as well, but he’s also doing it on the defensive end, which really makes him the complete package.
Scottie Pippen
For most of our history, Americans enjoyed both liberty and security from foreign threats.
Harry Browne
РїРѕСЃРѕР» Ирака РіРѕРІРѕСЂРёС‚ Our fight – the fight is against ISIS as an entity, as an identity, and as a threat to our culture, our heritage and certainly for the minorities who it’s been able to exterminate or try to enslave and others.
Lukman Faily
The greatest threat to women (and by extension humanity) is the growth and acceptance of a misogynistic, authoritarian, and violent culture of militarism.
Amina Mama
The threat from unmanned aircraft systems in the U.S. is steadily escalating.
Christopher A. Wray
We’re well aware, and we have been for a long time, that there is a real threat from adversaries, state actors, non-state actors, to hack us, influence us, destroy stuff through cyber means. Because cyber threat has been understood for a while, it’s longstanding, it’s a concern.
Susan Rice
The salient mystery of Dark Ages sets the stage for mass amnesia. People living in vigorous cultures typically treasure those cultures and resist any threat to them. How and why can a people so totally discard a formerly vital culture that it becomes vitally lost?
Jane Jacobs
You seek escape from pain. We seek the achievement of happiness. You exist for the sake of avoiding punishment. We exist for the sake of earning rewards. Threats will not make us function; fear is not our incentive. It is not death that we wish to avoid, but life that we wish to live
Ayn Rand
Communism is quite obviously still a threat. Yes, they are human beings, with a right to their point of view . . .
John Wayne
The threat from extreme weather events highlights the importance of investing in preparedness.
Sheri Fink
The Network Generation are secure in, and proud of, their Scottishness. Unlike my generation that grew up in the ’80s, they don’t see our sense of identity as under threat.
Douglas Alexander
Fanaticism is the greatest threat today. Literally, the 21st century threatened by fanatics, and we have fanatics in every religion, unfortunately, and what can we do against them? Words nothing else, I’m against violence but only words.
Elie Wiesel
Historically, war journalists have embedded themselves with one side, which means the greatest threat comes from the clearly delineated enemy of that side.
Alan Huffman
Seven hundred and sixteen billion dollars, funneled out of Medicare by President Obama. An obligation we have to our parents and grandparents is being sacrificed, all to pay for a new entitlement we didn’t even ask for. The greatest threat to Medicare is Obamacare, and we’re going to stop it.
Paul Ryan
It is the entire euro zone system which is under threat at the moment, not just a few small countries anymore… Our euro is under threat. The changing situation needs a quick and immediate reaction.
Iveta Radicova
One of these modest little moves may be more embarrassing to your opponent than the biggest threat
Siegbert Tarrasch
The main threat to the future of Europe is not those who want to come here to live but our own political, economic, and intellectual elites bent on transforming Europe against the clear will of the European people.
Viktor Orban
McAfee’s No. 1 strength is that they have a fantastic R&D team, engineering, as well as research at the core of security: database threat management.
Renee James
Every major player is working on this technology of artificial intelligence. As of now, it’s benign… but I would say that the day is not far off when artificial intelligence as applied to cyber warfare becomes a threat to everybody.
Ted Bell
I was challenged to a fistfight by Margo Jefferson, the Pulitzer Prize winner, New York Times writer, who is part of a feminist clique at the Times, which believes that Black men are the principal threat to the women of the world.
Ishmael Reed
Another threat to stability is the rise of Internet gambling
John Warren Kindt
Growing up is a trap,” snapped Dr. Robbins. “When they tell you to shut up, they mean stop talking. When they tell you to grow up, they mean stop growing. Reach a nice level plateau and settle there, predictable and unchanging, no longer a threat.
Tom Robbins
Lesbianism, politically organized, is the greatest threat that exists to male supremacy.
Rita Mae Brown
Anxiety may consist of the loss of psychological or spiritual meaning which is identified with one’s existence as a self, i.e., the threat of meaninglessness.
Paul Tillich
Climate change isnКјt a distant threat. ItКјs already changing the way we live.
Jeff Orlowski
When two great powers disagree about anything – it doesn’t matter what – they must find a way to settle it somehow by arbitration or by negotiation, not by war or threat of war.
Bertrand Russell
While Democrats, including Barack Obama, mocked the notion that Russia is the greatest threat to our country, nobody has been tougher on Russia and Vladimir Putin than President Donald Trump.
Mike Braun
Iran poses the most serious long-term threat to regional stability.
Ehud Barak
The police came to me to say I had death threats and that I had to be careful!
Heather Mills
Although not initially of his own choosing, Michael Mann has been the most important, resilient, and outspoken warrior in the climate battle–responding to threats and persecution with courage and resolve every step of the way. Anyone who cares about the climate issue must read his fascinating–and enraging–story.
Chris Mooney
One of the sharp parallels is that neither Vietnam nor Iraq was the slightest threat to America’s national security.
George McGovern
Gender based violence anywhere is a threat to peace and security everywhere.
John F. Kerry
Mindfulness has never been more important considering how the events of the world move in such an accelerated, frantic time. Our attention goes from here to the next thing to the next thing, and we’re triggered from one response of fear to one of connection to the threat of loss.
Barnet Bain
The greatest threat that the world faces, the greatest national security threat is a nuclear Iran.
Mitt Romney
The America in which we grew up is vastly different from the America the secular-socialist Left want to create. And that’s why saving America is the fundamental challenge of our time. The secular-socialist machine represents as great a threat to America as Nazi Germany or the Soviet Union once did.
Newt Gingrich
Everything done by the state is ultimately done by means of aggression, which is to say violence or the threat of violence against the innocent.
Llewellyn Rockwell
I want to be the president of all the people of France, for the patriots facing the threat of nationalism.
Emmanuel Macron
I believe global warming and climate change are real threats to our planet.
Andrew Cuomo
Today we’re in the West, and we have to say there are dire threats to our security and to our way of life. You see what’s happening out there. They are threats. We will confront. We will win. But they are threats.
Donald Trump
As the third anniversary of the September 11th attacks draws near we must ensure our nation is prepared to handle the continued threat of violence and terrorism on our country.
Leonard Boswell
When we let others control us by the threat of disapproval and rejection, we give up far too much of ourselves and make it impossible for us to engage in authentic relationships.
George Robinson
I do not believe the greatest threat to our future is from bombs or guided missiles. I don’t think our civilization will die that way. I think it will die when we no longer care when the spiritual forces that make us wish to be right and noble die in our hearts.
Laurence McKinley Gould
I have lived under the threat of death for a year now. And because of that, I have made choices. Listen to me. I alone should suffer the consequences of those choices, no one else. And those consequences, they’re coming. No more prolonging the inevitable.
Walter White
Demands for equality for women are threats to men’s self-esteem and sense of sexual turf.
Alice S Rossi
Last week, the House of Representatives passed a resolution honoring the victims and heroes of September 11th. As we commemorate the anniversary of 9-11, we must also remember that the threat is still very real today.
Michael McCaul
Two days like icebergs bleak, blank, half-melting, all frigid, mainly out of sight, and definitely a threat to peace of mind drifted by and were good to put behind.
Roger Zelazny
Military force is irrelevant to many of the most urgent threats we face. If we are to solve our myriad domestic problems and revitalize our economy we need to be more selective about our involvement in foreign crises large and small.
William Hartung
I could never understand why they did that to Barry Sanders in Detroit. I know that’s one of the reasons why he retired, because they took him out on third down and let someone else catch the ball. I thought they must be out of their mind because Barry is such a threat.
Jim Brown
Our top focus – protecting our Nation – must go beyond homeland preparedness; America will only be secure if we deal with threats before they happen, not just after they happen.
Bill Frist
What’s important to do is we must deal frontally with this threat of radical Islamists, especially from ISIS. This is the most sophisticated terror group that has ever threatened the world or the United States of America.
Marco Rubio
People with high assurance in their capabilities approach difficult tasks as challenges to be mastered rather than as threats to be avoided.
Albert Bandura
President-elect Trump has said he would like to improve relations with Russia. His choice for defense secretary views Russia as America’s number one threat.
Steve Inskeep
Talk about threats to national security — how about government so big, so complicated and so unmanageable, it cant get out of its own way?
Bob Schieffer
The greatest threat to the state is not faction but distraction
The Greeks had considered hope the final evil in Pandora’s box. They also gave us an image of perfect nobility: a human being lovingly doing her duty to another human being despite all threats, and going to her death with pride and courage, not deterred by any hope – Antigone.
Walter Kaufmann
Good decisions are not necessarily playing it short every time you get the ball. The best teams can play longer or have a threat behind or play through or around. They adapt.
Gareth Southgate
I think because there is the constant looming threat of nepotism and judgment, I really tried to separate what I was doing at MTV, my auditions, anything I was doing creatively, from my family.
Dan Levy
We ought to be doing much more in North America. We are on the cusp of an energy revolution. And we do need to be doing more at home. The biggest national security threats facing the United States right now are not in the Middle East. They are domestic.
Richard N. Haass
Crime and violence are a threat to the freedom and liberty people should enjoy and to our orderly way of life.
Priti Patel
We live under continual threat of two equally fearful, but seemingly opposed destinies: unremitting banality and inconceivable terror. It is fantasy, served out in large rations by the popular arts, which allows most people to cope with these twin specters.
Susan Sontag
As an observer, I react to the realities of Israeli life with both envy and relief. Nobody wants to live under the threat of constant attack from enemies right next door, under ceaseless and often unfair international scrutiny, defending his homeland by day and living with the memories of mass genocide at night.
Pete Hegseth
When people access the use of force for the threat of violence they have, by definition, a new political power. An unwanted political power.
Cody Wilson
We have to deal with this new type of threat in a way we haven’t yet defined. . . . With a low-probability, high-impact event like this . . . If there’s a one percent chance that Pakistani scientists are helping al Qaeda build or develop a nuclear weapon, we have to treat it as a certainty in terms of our response.
Dick Cheney
The target of preventive war must have several characteristics. It must be virtually defenceless; it must be important enough to be worth the trouble; it must be possible to portray it as the ultimate evil and an imminent threat to our survival.
Noam Chomsky
North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States. They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen. Kim Jong-un has been very threatening, beyond a normal statement. And as I said, they will be met with fire, fury and, frankly, power, the likes of which this world has never seen before.
Donald Trump
We face the gravest threat that civilization has ever confronted. It’s global in nature and requires a global solution. Increased CO2 emissions anywhere, whether from China or the United States or from one of the countries that is burning its forests like Brazil or Indonesia.
Al Gore
There is a growing threat to the environment, to the vegetation, animals, water and air. Sacred Scripture hands us the image of Cain who rejects his responsibility: ‘Am I my brother’s keeper?’ The Bible shows the human person as his brother’s keeper and the guardian of creation which has been entrusted to him.
Pope John Paul II
You can be sure that Judicial Watch is investigating and monitoring the responses of our government to the coronavirus threat.
Tom Fitton
I strongly reject threats by any member state to destroy another or outrageous attempts to deny historical facts such as the Holocaust.
Ban Ki-moon
While I agree that homegrown terrorism and the jihadist threat deserve continuing attention, a single-minded approach ignores all other threats.
Bennie Thompson
Japan’s beautiful seas and its territory are under threat, and young people are having trouble finding hope in the future amid economic slump. I promise to protect Japan’s land and sea, and the lives of the Japanese people no matter what.
Shinzo Abe
The threat landscape continues to expand, while cyber threats are continually becoming more sophisticated. This has convinced organizations to expand their security policies and deploy more security solutions.
Ken Xie
Obama really does recognize the threats that are out there; I think he understands the world. He understands the role of America in that troubled world.
Leon Panetta
Of course, the new domestic paramilitary forces will also undermine free speech and dissent with the threat of force while simultaneously threatening core civil liberties, rights and civic responsibilities.
Henry Giroux
We must not condemn to frustration those whose job it is to protect us by failing to provide them with the necessary resources to meet the threats they face.
Joe Lieberman
In their vanity men focus on what they wish to hear and miss the hidden meaning, the lurking threat.
David Hewson
A president who breaks the law is a threat to the very structure of our government.
Al Gore
Let me begin by saying that I am one of those naturally wary people who considers the verb return a kind of insidious threat.
John Burnham Schwartz
You can never get rid of all of your fears. Some are necessary and a part of life. But most of our fears are illusory, based on risks or threats that exist only in our minds. Such fears constrain and make you miserable. The feeling of moving past a particular fear is one of liberation and freedom.
Robert Greene
Hospitals don’t have enough beds, staff shortages are being exacerbated by the uncertainty surrounding what Brexit means for EU nationals and our ability to access new cancer treatments is under threat.
Layla Moran
Is real, it is serious, it is growing, and it constitutes one of the greatest threats to our national security and, indeed, to global security.
John O. Brennan
I believed that the donor class would cringe at the vast threat Donald Trump poses to the entire Republican Party, its brand, its prospects for expansion, and the nation.
Rick Wilson
I see no constitutional problems with the identification, staving off and defusing of outside threats.
Thomas de Maiziere
Laws protecting this right – whatever the level of the minimum wage, and whatever the Government chooses to call it – are only as strong as the threat of enforcement is both real and feared.
Emily Thornberry
…it is business that can exercise the fastest degree of change by seeing the opportunity rather than the threat
Chris Huhne
We are stymied by regulations, limited choice and the threat of litigation. Neither consultants nor industry itself provide research which takes architecture forward.
Arthur Erickson
I think to leave Europe would be a threat on the one hand to our economic security and on the other our national security.
Nicholas Soames
Climate change is a threat to the conditions in which our economy can function at all.
Barry Gardiner
This accumulated debt at all levels of our society poses an immediate existential threat to America. Now unlike the manufactured crises of global warming and healthcare, this is a true crisis. This crisis threatens the very sovereignty of our country.
Steve Bannon
… we have broken down the self-respecting spirit of man with nursery tales and priestly threats, and we dare to assert, that inproportion as we have prostrated our understanding and degraded our nature, we have exhibited virtue, wisdom, and happiness, in our words, our actions, and our lives!
Frances Wright
A president should take action to defend the United States against eminent threat. You have to. The president has to do that.
Tim Kaine
Pledge Allegiance was a pretty generic name back in the day. In the 80’s I was the promoter for all the punk rock shows and I’d book Black Flag, Dead Kennedy’s, Minor Threat etc and I’d hook them up with places to stay if needed so it’s hard to keep track of it all.
Reed Mullin
It’s too easy to dismiss Donald Trump as a buffoon – to point and laugh at a man whose worldview is as ridiculous as his hairdo. But to do so is to make light of a very serious threat.
Sadiq Khan
There Is No Terrorist Threat In This Country. This Is A Lie. This Is The Biggest Lie We’ve Been Told.
Michael Moore
Every member Congress is under the threat of being destroyed by the Israeli lobby.
David Duke
As long as each individual is facing the television tube alone, formal freedom poses no threat to privilege
Noam Chomsky
Advertising – a judicious mixture of flattery and threats.
Northrop Frye
There is no terrorist threat. Yes, there have been horrific acts of terrorism and, yes, there will be acts of terrorism again. But that doesn’t mean that there’s some kind of massive terrorist threat.
Michael Moore
Please go on, make your threats. I don’t like to submit to mere implication.
Marcus Tullius Cicero
I believe that the dysfunctional Muslim family constitutes a real threat to the very fabric of western life. It is in the family that children are groomed to practise, promote and pass on the norms of their parents’ culture.
Ayaan Hirsi Ali
But how to do feelings? All very well to write “She felt sad”, or describe what a sad person might do, but what of sadness itself, how was that put across so it could be felt in all its lowering immediacy? Even harder was the threat, or the confusion of feeling contradictory things.
Ian Mcewan
They [China] have indicated that they’re trying to develop nuclear capability and they want to develop more aircraft carriers like we have. So yes, we have to consider them a military threat.
Herman Cain
The United States must ensure that Iran does not attain nuclear weapons, as this poses a direct threat to our interests, including Israel, and would in all likelihood provoke a regional arms race.
Joe Sestak
The real problem is not the existential threat of AI. Instead, it is in the development of ethical AI systems.
Rana el Kaliouby
If attacked on some vulnerable point by anyone or anything or any organization, always find or manufacture enough threat against them to cause them to sue for peace.
L. Ron Hubbard
Once the ISIS threat has been reduced or eliminated, I think we can turn our attention directly to stabilizing the situation in Syria. We’re hopeful that we can prevent a continuation of the civil war and that we can bring the parties to the table to begin the process of political discussions.
Rex W. Tillerson
On a day when Osama bin Laden again threatened the United States and our allies, it is disturbing to realize that John Kerry neither recognizes nor understands the murderous ideology of our enemies and the threat they pose to our nation.
Marc Racicot
The three classic ways in which the Devil tempts us are with a threat, a promise or a seduction.
Paulo Coelho
What parents need to make clear to their children post-divorce is that whoever comes into their lives is not a threat to the children in any manner because the position that they occupy cannot be occupied by the children.
Pooja Bedi
The entire United States is within range of our nuclear weapons, and a nuclear button is always on my desk. This is reality, not a threat.
Kim Jong-un
There is no question that al-Qaida operatives are currently active in Iraq. A premature exit before the threat they represent has been dealt with would endanger America and the prospects of eventual peace in the Middle East.
Robert Foster Bennett
It is manifestly in the interest of the United States to deal with the very real threat that climate change poses. And that’s why President Obama has worked so hard to reduce our own emissions and to lead internationally in forging the Paris climate agreement.
Susan Rice
There is no greater example of government overreach and unrestrained liberalism than ‘Obamacare.’ It is so deeply flawed and such a clear and present threat to our economic stability that there is no way to fix it.
Tommy Thompson
I just feel like if I really believe what Dr. King said, ‘Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere,’ then I should be compelled to use my God-given platform to effect change.
Nate Parker
If you want to see the greatest threat to your financial future, go home and take a look in the mirror.
Jonathan Clements
National security rests on the credible threat of a form of warfare universally condemned since the Dark Ages, the wholesale slaughter of noncombatants.
George Will
For any prosecutor, a decision to show leniency in sentencing must be weighed against multiple factors. Do they show remorse for their actions? Are they a threat to the public and law enforcement? Do they intend to contribute to society?
Brianna Wu
Are we not concerned, for example, by the growing danger related to the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and missile technology? All of this poses a clear threat to the world, to the region. However, we have obvious points of convergence that are related to our interests.
Vladimir Putin
Climate change is the greatest threat to our existence in our short history on this planet. Nobody’s going to buy their way out of its effects.
Mark Ruffalo
Given the genocidal belligerence of Iranian threats against Israel, it is hard to take issue with Israel’s right to preemptive self-defense.
Conrad Black
To freemen, threats are impotent.
[Lat., Nulla enim minantis auctoritas apud liberos est.]
Marcus Tullius Cicero
To yield to the threat or actual use of violence is a surrender of one’s self respect and religious conviction.
Mahatma Gandhi
We have seen how Zika has become a very serious problem in Brazil, in other parts of Latin America, in this hemisphere. During the summer it can arrive very quickly here in south Florida, in the whole state. In a very hot climate in summer, where mosquitos begin to spread very quickly, it’s a very serious threat.
Marco Rubio
When Xi Jinping came to power, there were a series of hints that market-based capitalism would be allowed to move forward under his leadership. At the first real threat, they’ve fallen over themselves to impose government control.
Roger Altman
The European brand of fascism will probably present its most serious postwar threat to us via Latin America.
Henry A. Wallace
Women are prevented by the threat and reality of male violence from entering public space on equal terms with male citizens.
Sheila Jeffreys
I’ve come to realize that an unencumbered U.S. senator is a profound threat to the whole system. It’s somebody that they can’t put in a box and say, ‘Oh, well, we know how this guy is going to vote.’
Angus King
Change is a threat when done to me, but an opportunity when done by me.
Rosabeth Moss Kanter
I am convinced that there are more threats to American liberty within the 10-mile radius of my office on Capitol Hill than there are on the rest of the globe.
Ron Paul
The greatest threat to public confidence in elections in this case is the prospect of enforcing a purposefully discriminatory law, one that likely imposes an unconstitutional poll tax and risks denying the right to vote to hundreds of thousands of eligible voters.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg
What we have done is when the threat has been directed at the United States, i.e., the terrorist threat from ISIL or Al-Qaeda in Syria, is to go after them.
Susan Rice
I had a slightly inferior endgame that probably should have been drawn, but Kortchnoi kept torturing me with little threats until finally, exhausted and exasperated, I made a losing mistake.
Pal Benko
The big threat to the planet is people: there are too many, doing too well economically and burning too much oil.
James Lovelock
Remaining vigilant toward this ever-present threat means constantly learning how better to protect ourselves. But primarily it reminds us that we must fight and win the war on terror, so that we do not have to fight it here in America.
Mark Kennedy
Trauma causes us to have an internal experience that is frightening, angry, and shameful. When we feel threatened, as we do when we are traumatized, our entire organism is geared up to find the source of that threat and to do something about it.
Peter A. Levine
The federal government has the responsibility to protect the nation’s public health, to protect us from foreign threats. And it [Zika] really is an illness that we are seeing arrive from abroad. So it is a threat to public health, and it is the federal government’s job to cooperate in this.
Marco Rubio
