The world must be made safe for democracy. Its peace must be planted upon the tested foundations of political liberty. We have no selfish ends to serve. We desire no conquest, no dominion. We seek no indemnities for ourselves, no material compensation for the sacrifices we shall freely make. We are but one of the champions of the rights of mankind. We shall be satisfied when those rights have been made as secure as the faith and the freedom of nations can make them. […] It is a fearful thing to lead this great peaceful people into war, into the most terrible and disastrous of all wars, civilization itself seeming to be in the balance. But the right is more precious than peace, and we shall fight for the things which we have always carried nearest our hearts—for democracy, for the right of those who submit to authority to have a voice in their own governments, for the rights and liberties of small nations, for a universal dominion of right by such a concert of free peoples as shall bring peace and safety to all nations and make the world itself at last free.

Woodrow Wilson Quotes on Democracy

The commands of democracy are as imperative as its privileges and opportunities are wide and generous. Its compulsion is upon us.


The world must be made safe for democracy.


The whole purpose of democracy is that we may hold counsel with one another, so as not to depend upon the understanding of one man.


The government, which was designed for the people, has got into the hands of the bosses and their employers, the special interests. An invisible empire has been set up above the forms of democracy.

Woodrow Wilson Quotes on Federal Reserve

We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated Governments in the world.


I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated Governments in the civilized world – no longer a Government by free opinion, no longer a Government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a Government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men.


There is a power so organized, so subtle, so complete, and so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.


Since I entered politics, I have chiefly had men’s views confided to me privately. Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of somebody, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.

Woodrow Wilson Quotes on Peace

Neutrality is a negative word. It is a word that does not express what America ought to feel. America has a heart, and that heart throbs with all sorts of intense sympathies… We are not trying to keep out of trouble; we are trying to preserve the foundations upon which peace can be rebuilt.


No man can sit down and withhold his hands from the warfare against wrong and get peace from his acquiescence.


We shall fight for a universal dominion of right by such a concert of free peoples as shall bring peace and safety to all nations and make the world itself at last free.


I am not one of those who believe that a great standing army is the means of maintaining peace, because if you build up a great profession those who form parts of it want to exercise their profession.

Woodrow Wilson Quotes about Business

I have always in my own thought summed up individual liberty, and business liberty, and every other kind of liberty, in the phrase that is common in the sporting world, ‘A free field and no favor.’


Big business is not dangerous because it is big, but because its bigness is an unwholesome inflation created by privileges and exemptions which it ought not to enjoy.


My dream of politics all my life has been that it is the common business, that it is something we owe to each other to understand and discuss with absolute frankness.


Every great man of business has got somewhere a touch of the idealist in him.

Woodrow Wilson Quotes on isolationism

There is a very holy and a very terrible isolation for the conscience of every man who seeks to read the destiny in affairs for others as well as for himself, for a nation as well as for individuals. That privacy no man can intrude upon. That lonely search of the spirit for the right perhaps no man can assist.

Woodrow Wilson Quotes on Success

There has been something crude and heartless and unfeeling in our haste to suceed and be great. Our thought has been ‘Let every man look out for himself, let every generation look out for itself,’ while we reared giant machinery which made it impossible that any but those who stood at the levers of control should have a chance to look out for themselves.


One cool judgement is worth a thousand hasty councils.


A man may be defeated by his own secondary successes.


I had rather be defeated in a cause that will ultimately triumph than triumph in a cause that will ultimately be defeated.

Woodrow Wilson Quotes on Politics

I do not want to live under a philanthropy. I do not want to be taken care of by the government…. We do not want a benevolent government. We want a free and a just government.


Liberty has never come from Government. Liberty has always come from the subjects of it. The history of liberty is a history of limitations of governmental power, not the increase of it.


The great monopoly in this country is the money monopoly. So long as it exists, our old variety of freedom and individual energy of development are out of the question.


Conservatism is the policy of make no change and consult your grandmother when in doubt.

Woodrow Wilson Quotes about Defeat

The rule for every man is, not to depend on the education which other men have prepared for him-not even to consent to it; but to strive to see things as they are, and to be himself as he is. Defeat lies in self-surrender.


The difference between a strong man and a weak one is that the former does not give up after a defeat.


We have beaten the living, but we cannot fight the dead.


I had rather be defeated in a cause that will ultimately triumph than triumph in a cause that will ultimately be defeated.

Woodrow Wilson Quotes on Self Respect

There is a price which is too great to pay for peace, and that price can be put in one word. One cannot pay the price of self-respect.


All the extraordinary men I have known were extraordinary in their own estimation.


One cannot pay the price of self-respect.

Woodrow Wilson Quotes You are not here to make a Living

You are not here merely to make a living. You are here in order to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world, and you impoverish yourself if you forget the errand.

Woodrow Wilson Quotes about Freedom

There will be no greater burden on our generation than to organize the forces of liberty in our time in order to make our quest ofa new freedom for America.


A right is worth fighting for only when it can be put into operation.


Today, supremely, it behooves us to remember that a nation shall be saved by the power that sleeps in its own bosom; or by none; shall be renewed in hope, in confidence, in strength by waters welling up from its own sweet, perennial springs. Not from above; not by patronage of its aristocrats. The flower does not bear the root, but the root the flower.


Freedom exists only where the people take care of the government.

Woodrow Wilson Quotes on Leadership

Your real statesman is first of all, and chief of all, a great human being, with an eye for all the great fields on which men likehimself struggle, with unflagging, pathetic hope, toward better things…. He is a guide, a counselor, a mentor, a servant, a friend of mankind.


The ear of the leader must ring with the voices of the people.


If you would be a leader of men you must lead your own generation, not the next. Your playing must be good now, while the play ison the boards and the audience in the seats…. It will not get you the repute of a good actor to have excellencies discovered in you afterwards.


You are not here merely to make a living. You are here in order to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world, and you impoverish yourself if you forget the errand.

Woodrow Wilson Quotes about War

To fight, you must be brutal and ruthless, and the spirit of ruthless brutality will enter into the very fibre of national life.


…I do not want a government that will take care of me, I want a government that will make other men take their hands off me so I can take care of myself.


Is there any man, is there any woman, let me say any child here that does not know that the seed of war in the modern world is industrial and commercial rivalry?


Once lead this people into war, and they’ll forget there ever was such a thing as tolerance. To fight, you must be brutal and ruthless, and the spirit of ruthless brutality will enter into the very fiber of our national life, infecting Congress, the courts, the policeman on the beat, the man in the street.

Woodrow Wilson Quotes about Citizens

We are citizens of the world. The tragedy of our times is that we do not know this.

Woodrow Wilson Quotes about History

The history of liberty is a history of resistance.

Woodrow Wilson Quotes on Education

We want one class of persons to have a liberal education, and we want another class of persons, a very much larger class, of necessity, in every society, to forego the privileges of a liberal education and fit themselves to perform specific difficult manual tasks.


The rule for every man is, not to depend on the education which other men have prepared for him-not even to consent to it; but to strive to see things as they are, and to be himself as he is. Defeat lies in self-surrender.

Woodrow Wilson Quotes on Life

The method of political science is the interpretation of life; its instrument is insight, a nice understanding of subtle, unformulated conditions.


The highest and best form of efficiency is the spontaneous cooperation of a free people.


You are not here merely to make a living. You are here in order to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world, and you impoverish yourself if you forget the errand.


No man that does not see visions will ever realize any high hope or undertake any high enterprise.

Motivational Quotes by Woodrow Wilson

I would rather lose in a cause that will someday win, than win in a cause that will someday lose.


You are not here merely to make a living. You are here in order to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world, and you impoverish yourself if you forget the errand.


I not only use all the brains that I have, but all that I can borrow.

Woodrow Wilson Quotes on Change

If you want to make enemies, try to change something.

Woodrow Wilson Quotes about Love

You must act in your friends’ interests whether it pleases them or not; the object of love is to serve, not to win.


We grow great by dreams. All big men are dreamers. They see things in the soft haze of a spring day or in the red fire of a long winter’s evening. Some of us let these great dreams die, but others nourish and protect them; nurse them through bad days till they bring them to the sunshine and light which comes always to those who sincerely hope that their dreams will come true.


I would rather belong to a poor nation that was free than to a rich nation that had ceased to be in love with liberty.


The object of love is to serve, not to win

Woodrow Wilson Quotes Brains

I not only use all the brains that I have, but all that I can borrow.

Woodrow Wilson Quotes about the Flag

The flag is the embodiment, not of sentiment, but of history.


The flag is a flag of liberty of opinion as well as of political liberty.

Woodrow Wilson Quotes on Democracy

The commands of democracy are as imperative as its privileges and opportunities are wide and generous. Its compulsion is upon us.


The world must be made safe for democracy.
