Bernard Baruch
If all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail.
Baruch quotes
America has never forgotten — and never will forget — the nobler things that brought her into being and that light her path — the path that was entered upon only one hundred and fifty years ago ... How young she is! It will be centuries before she will adopt that maturity of custom — the clothing of the grave — that some people believe she is already fitted for.
Baruch
There are no such things as incurable, there are only things for which man has not found a cure.




Baruch Bernard quotes
It will fluctuate.
Baruch Bernard
In the Baruch proposal our government suggested the creation of the International Authority by the United Nations to which would be given a complete monopoly of all atomic installations, materials and stockpiles. This authority should be given power of inspection and power to call for the punishment of violators.
Bernard Baruch quotes
Behind the black portent of the new atomic age lies a hope which, seized upon with faith, can work out salvation ... Let us not deceive ourselves: we must elect world peace or world destruction.
Bernard Baruch
To me, old age is always fifteen years older than I am.
Baruch Bernard quotes
I am quite sure that in the hereafter she will take me by the hand and lead me to my proper seat.
Baruch
Every man has a right to his own opinion, but no man has a right to be wrong in his facts.
Baruch Bernard
I am interested in physical medicine because my father was. I am interested in medical research because I believe in it. I am interested in arthritis because I have it.
Bernard Baruch
I'm not smart. I try to observe. Millions saw the apple fall but Newton was the one who asked why.




Bernard Baruch quotes
Those who matter don't mind, and those who mind don't matter.
Bernard Baruch
Although the shooting war is over, we are in the midst of a cold war which is getting warmer.
Baruch quotes
Vote for the man who promises least; he'll be the least disappointing.
Baruch Bernard
Peace is never long preserved by weight of metal or by an armament race. Peace can be made tranquil and secure only by understanding and agreement fortified by sanctions. We must embrace international cooperation or international disintegration. Science has taught us how to put the atom to work. But to make it work for good instead of for evil lies in the domain dealing with the principles of human dignity. We are now facing a problem more of ethics than of physics.
Baruch Bernard quotes
Anyone taken as an individual is tolerably sensible...as a member of a crowd, he at once becomes a blockhead.
Bernard Baruch
A political leader must keep looking over his shoulder all the time to see if the boys are still there. If they aren’t still there, he’s no longer a political leader.
Bernard Baruch quotes
Let us not be deceived — we are today in the midst of a cold war. Our enemies are to be found abroad and at home. Let us never forget this: Our unrest is the heart of their success. The peace of the world is the hope and the goal of our political system; it is the despair and defeat of those who stand against us.
