Michael Kors
The Europeans and Americans have said the martyrdom operations are why Hamas has been put on the terrorist list. But now these operations have stopped. Did they then remove Hamas from the list of terrorist organisations? We do not launch wars. We are people resisting occupation.

Gene Luen Yang
Europeans have long had a complicated and somewhat insecure relationship with the US, part admiration, part jealousy, part irritation.
Katty Kay
I think the ‘Boxers’ book was easier for me to envision as a comic, because they were on this epic journey. These teenagers basically gathered into this army and marched to the capital city where they had a showdown with the Europeans and Japanese. On the ‘Saints’ side, it was a lot trickier.
Gene Luen Yang
This is due partly to the fact that Americans are much better fed than Europeans, and partly to the undeveloped resources of a new country, but more largely to our climate, which acts as a constant stimulus.
Josiah Strong

For some reason, lots of terrible things start here and then spread. The Cold War was one. It didn’t start in Berlin – it started in Athens in December 1944; the contagion in the eurozone started here in 2010. We are perfectly capable as Europeans of messing things up unnecessarily.
Yanis Varoufakis

Tim Griffin

Richard Flanagan
My God, I don’t know anyone who likes to accumulate their wealth more than the Europeans.
Edmund Phelps

China protects the Chinese, America protects the Americans, I don’t see why Europe should not protect the Europeans.
Dominique de Villepin
Native American activists have been present as long as the Europeans have been working to colonize us.

Ben Stein
Corporate America doesn’t really have an interest in Formula One because there is nothing American in it at this point. It is European and all made by Europeans. Until that changes, the interest isn’t going to be at the level it needs to be.
Alexander Rossi
America, when it became known to Europeans, was, as it had long been, a scene of wide-spread revolution.

Francine Prose
The next humans to walk on the moon may be Chinese. Only China seems to have the resources, the dirigiste government, and the willingness to undertake a risky Apollo-style programme. If Americans or Europeans venture to the moon and beyond, this will have to be in a very different style and with different motives.
Martin Rees
