Quotations by Bernard Baruch
Bernard BaruchDo more listening than talking - Most of the successful people I've known are the ones who do more listening than talking.

Millions saw the apple fall - Millions saw the apple fall, Newton was the only one who asked why?

Be who you are and say what you feel - Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind.

Approach each new problem not with. . . - Approach each new problem not with a view of finding what you hope will be there, but to get the truth, the realities that must be grappled with. You may not like what you find. In that case you are entitled to try to change it. But do not deceive yourself as to what you do find to be the facts of the situation.

Peace is never long preserved - 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.

Vote for who promises least - Vote for the man who promises least; he'll be the least disappointing.

Origin of the phrase "Cold War" - As the Soviets thwarted an atomic agreement, lowered their iron Curtain in Eastern Europe, and broke one promise after the other in those early postwar years, it became clear that they were waging war against us. It was a new kind of war, to be sure, in which the guns were silent; but our survival was at stake nonetheless. It was a situation that soon came to be known as the "cold war," a phrase I introduced in a speech before the South Carolina legislature in April, 1947.

Choice between quick and dead - My fellow citizens of the world, we are here to make a choice between the quick and the dead. . .

Behind the black portent of the new atomic age lies a hope which, seized upon with faith, can work our salvation. . .We must elect world peace or world destruction.

In the midst of a cold war - Let us not be deceived -- we are today in the midst of a cold war. Our enemies are to befound 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.
