Supporting Quotes about America

Americans are so enamored of equality, they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.
Alexis de Tocqueville

America: Where a man can say what he thinks, if he isn’t afraid of his wife, his boss, his customer, his neighbors, or the government.
Joe Moore

Here we write well when we expose frauds and hypocrites. We are great at counting warts and blemishes and weighting feet of clay. In expressing love, we belong among the underdeveloped countries.
Saul Bellow, about America

America is a country that doesn’t know where it is going but is determined to set a speed record getting there.

Will Rogers

No one ever went broke underestimating the taste of the American public.
H.L. Mencken

Americans like fat books and thin women.
Russell Baker

We need a type of patriotism that recognizes the virtues of those who are opposed to us. We must get away from the idea that America is to be the leader of the world in everything. She can lead in some things. The old “manifest destiny” idea ought to be modified so that each nation has the manifest destiny to do the best it can – and that without cant, without the assumption of self-righteousness and with a desire to learn to the uttermost from other nations.
Francis John McConnell

America… just a nation of two hundred million used car salesmen with all the money we need to buy guns and no qualms about killing anybody else in the world who tries to make us uncomfortable.
Hunter S. Thompson

30 – The Matrix Movie Quote by Morpheus

The Matrix - Morpheus

The Matrix is everywhere. It is all around us. Even now, in this very room. You can see it when you look out your window or when you turn on your television. You can feel it when you go to work…when you go to church…when you pay your taxes. It is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth. That you are a slave, Neo. Like everyone else you were born into bondage. Born into a prison that you cannot smell or taste or touch. A prison for your mind.

27 – The Matrix Movie Quote by Morpheus

The Matrix - Morpheus

That you are a slave, Neo. Like everyone else, you were born into bondage, born into a prison that you cannot smell or taste or touch. A prison for your mind. Unfortunately, no one can be told what the Matrix is. You have to see it for yourself.
This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back. You take the blue pill, the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe.
You take the red pill, you stay in Wonderland, and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes.
Remember, all I’m offering is the truth. Nothing more.
