John Forbes Kerry is an American politician who was sworn in as the 68th Secretary of State on February 1, 2013. He was elected to the U.S. Senate in 1984 and was then re-elected in 1990, 1996, 2002 and 2008. Following are 15 quotes from John Kerry. Let’s read on.

“America now stands as the world’s foremost power. We should be proud: Not since the age of the Romans have one people achieved such preeminence. But we are not Romans; we do not seek an empire. We are Americans, trustees of a vision and a heritage that commit us to the values of democracy and the universal cause of human rights.”

“Values are not just words, values are what we live by. They’re about the causes that we champion and the people we fight for.”

“We have traded a dictator for a chaos that has left America less secure.”

“Values spoken without actions taken are merely slogans.”

“You’re looking at the biggest cheesehead in America. Here I am.”

“If America can go to the moon, then in the decades to come we should not ever have to have young Americans sent to any part of the world to defend and die for America’s gluttony on fossil fuel.”

“You may not understand completely in what ways, but it is true when I say to you that you have taught me and you’ve tested me and you’ve lifted me up, and you made me stronger”

“The greater your capacity to love, the greater your capacity to feel the pain.”

“The consequences of a crime should not be out of proportion to the crime itself.”

“I love to play guitar and hack around. I was in a band when I was in high school. I never learned to play very well, but I enjoyed it.”

“It’s one thing to be certain, but you can be certain and you can be wrong.”

“I believe that when you know something’s going wrong, you make it right. That’s what I learned in Vietnam. When I came back from that war I saw that it was wrong. Some people don’t like the fact that I stood up to say no, but I did.”

“The responsible choice would be to honor those who have worn our nation’s uniform, but the administration made a different choice. They’re raising veterans’ health care fees by $ 250 a year while cutting taxes for millionaires.”

“Young people have so much more power than they tend to think to be able to affect politics. And if people will organize and get involved and go out and knock on doors and hand out leaflets and make a change, then they can determine the future.”

“The hope is there. The sun is rising. Our best days are yet to come.”

Shinzo Abe, who is a member of a prominent political family, is the first Japanese prime minister born after World War II. He studied at Seikei University in Tokyo before attending the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. He entered the political world in 1982 and took office as Japan’s seventh prime minister in December 2012.

Following are 15 quotes from Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. Let’s read on.

“To serve as prime minister while being too mindful of the approval rating is like serving as a prime minister on a roller coaster. What is important, I believe, is that I really act on promises that I make and leave results. Leave a track record and show that to the Japanese public, who will, at the end of the day, I hope, appreciate it.”

“Our country has become an affluent country. Recalling defeat 60 years ago, I paid homage and respect to the people who sacrificed their lives for this country.”

“I have to express sympathy from the bottom of my heart to those people who were taken as wartime comfort women. As a human being, I would like to express my sympathies, and also as prime minister of Japan I need to apologize to them.”

“There’s no change to our view that mild deflation lingers, though we are seeing some signs of improvement.”

“As an individual and politician I have visited the shrine. I want to continue to maintain the feelings that I have had until now.”

“I have experienced failure as a politician and for that very reason, I am ready to give everything for Japan.”

“We did well considering the winds were against us. It’s still possible to run a stable government.”

“The 20th century was a century in which human rights were infringed upon in numerous parts of the world, and Japan also bears responsibility in that regard. I believe that we have to look at our own history with humility and think about our responsibility.”

“We are not in a situation yet where we can change the view that mild deflation persists.”

“It is important to explain fully to the local areas with sincerity. We will also think, of course, about the development promotion of the communities.”

“Efforts to ease regulations and reform the nation’s tax system have helped put this self-sustaining recovery on track, … The numbers prove our policies have not been wrong.”

“I have not been told where to go yet. But no matter what the position is, I’m determined to accomplish Japan’s reform and create a Japan we can be proud of.”

“We aim to achieve general progress in relations between North Korea and Japan.”

“We anticipate the Japanese economy will continue its mild recovery. I am extremely delighted the reforms have produced definite results.”

“But I think there is a widespread opinion that the support system for athletes should be more firmly established.”
