A psychologist once told me that for a boy being in the middle of a conflict between two women is the worst possible situation. There's always a desire to please each one. ---->>>

I think that we have to be constantly asking ourselves, 'How do we calculate the risk?' And sometimes we don't calculate it correctly; we either overstate it or understate it. ---->>>

Americans deserve to feel secure in their own lives, in their own middle-class aspirations, before you go to them and say, 'We're going to have to enforce navigable sea lanes in the South China Sea.' ---->>>

I really get up every day and try to deal with the problems that are in front of me, and I don't really worry about history. That will work itself out over time. ---->>>

I will read anything by Laura Hillenbrand, Walter Isaacson, Barbara Kingsolver, John le Carre, John Grisham, Hilary Mantel, Toni Morrison, Anna Quindlen and Alice Walker. ---->>>

This is what we call smart power. Using every possible tool and partner to advance peace and security. Leaving no one on the sidelines. Showing respect even for one's enemies. Trying to understand, in so far as psychologically possible, empathize with their perspective and point of view. Helping to define the problems, determine the solutions. ---->>>

Countries that will not tax their elite who expect us to come in and help them serve their people are just not going to get the kind of help from us that historically they may have. ---->>>

I believe that eventually, one of the next big issues that will have to be addressed globally is the role of state-owned enterprises. Because there is a disadvantage that's built in. ---->>>

I have a lot of reason to believe, as we saw in the 2012 election, most Americans don't agree with the extremists on any side of an issue, but there needs to continue to be an effort to find common ground, or even take it to higher ground on behalf of the future. ---->>>

I think every election is sui generis. I think it starts with where we are in the country at this time, with what Americans are thinking, feeling and hoping, and it proceeds from there. And it is always about the future. ---->>>

I would be delighted if the United States could have a positive relationship with Russia, and I would be thrilled if the Russian people, who are so capable, had a normal country that they could chart a different future. ---->>>

If you get so unequal that people believe they don't have a chance, that the field isn't level for them and their children, that puts democracy at risk. ---->>>

Iran has basically propped up Assad, who has waged an absolute war of horror against the Syrian people. And he has done anything he could to stay in power with the full support of the Iranians and including Iranian troops and Hezbollah from Lebanon, which are an Iranian proxy. ---->>>

My biggest, you know, regret is what happened in Benghazi. It was a terrible tragedy losing four Americans - two diplomats and, now it's public so I can say, two CIA operatives. ---->>>

Now, I know there are many Americans who say, 'Get out of Afghanistan. Bring 'em all home.' And there are others who say, 'Put in hundreds of thousands of more.' ---->>>

The most important questions for anybody thinking of running for president are not 'Will you run and can you win?' There is, 'What is your vision for America? And can you lead us there?' ---->>>

The United States, obviously, has a great interest in helping to maintain peace and security in Europe, and we have a formal alliance, NATO, to do so. ---->>>

There are some people in politics and in the press who can't be confused by the facts. They just will not live in an evidence-based world. And that's regrettable. ---->>>

When I traveled as secretary of state, I was deluged with thick briefing books full of information about the politics, economy, and culture of each destination, so those took up most of my reading time. ---->>>

When I was younger and women first started to get in public positions, in my case the law, we went through a period where we wore those little ribbon ties, little bows. We tried to figure out what was our appropriate dress. ---->>>

When you're down on yourself, and when you are hunkering down and pulling back, you're not going to make any better decisions than when you were aggressively, belligerently putting yourself forward. ---->>>

When you're the presidential nominee you get to pick whomever you choose to be on the ticket, and that person gets to say yes or no because, obviously, it's a very important decision. ---->>>

With respect to Iraq, I did favour the continuity of American forces to work with the new Maliki government. They had enormous needs for intelligence, for training on everything from airplanes to more sophisticated ground equipment and the like. ---->>>

One of the biggest problems that Egypt faces is the lack of border security - the importation of weapons on their way to Gaza, for example, coming out of Sudan. ---->>>

The safe haven that al-Qaida has found in Pakistan is very troubling. ---->>>

I won the youth vote in Massachusetts and in California. I did very well with it in Ohio. ---->>>

I've never understood the division between so-called realists and so-called idealists. ---->>>

All of us have to recognize that we owe our children more than we have been giving them. ---->>>

Several people have told me that one of the most meaningful events they could attend would be something at the White House with their children. ---->>>

Israel has a right to defend itself. ---->>>

India has reduced its dependence on Iranian oil. I know their refineries have stopped asking for orders to purchase Iranian oil. ---->>>

I don't think we should be about the business of denying voters in Michigan and Florida the right to be heard. ---->>>

American politics is always an open competition. ---->>>

Democracies have to be careful that they do not become so process-driven. ---->>>

George W. Bush is very popular in Sub-Saharan Africa. Why? Because of PEPFAR, the President's Emergency Program for AIDS Relief. ---->>>

Hamas, we know, embeds missiles, embeds command-and-control units in civilian areas. ---->>>

I can't drive anymore. ---->>>

I don't ask anyone else to live my life. I have enough trouble doing that. ---->>>

I had a family that supported me. ---->>>

I happen to have given lots of free speeches. ---->>>

I have been working or attending school full time since I was 13. ---->>>

I never thought I would end up being the Senator from New York. ---->>>

I respect the Congress's oversight responsibility. ---->>>

I've been in the hospital once when I had my daughter, and, oh, when I broke my elbow, but other than that, I've been very fortunate. ---->>>

I've spent so many years commuting, I kind of prefer a home office. ---->>>

In my family, we were Americans, we were Republicans and we were Methodists. ---->>>

My favorite short stories are by Alice Munro, especially her collections 'Carried Away' and 'Runaway.' ---->>>

My overall goal is to level the playing field for American businesses. ---->>>

Sometimes overturning brutal regimes takes time and costs lives. I wish it weren't so. I really, really do. ---->>>

Struggles do not end when countries attempt the transition to democracy. ---->>>

There is no part of the world that is irrelevant to the United States anymore. ---->>>

We'll hold out our hand; they have to unclench their fist. ---->>>

Well, I think, by definition, all power has limits. ---->>>

When it comes to the Middle East, this is always a very difficult issue for any American president. ---->>>

When my hair was shorter, I used to get it done every couple of days... but I got tired of that. ---->>>

I don't think it's at all weakening of the system if people with the same last name put themselves forward to the electorate, when their experiences, their character, and in my case, gender, may be different. ---->>>

I have known several presidents quite well, including my husband, and I worked closely with President George W. Bush and the White House then after 9/11, and I served with President Obama. I disagree with all three of those presidents on certain things. ---->>>

I learned to be far more skeptical of what I'm told by presidents, no matter who the presidents are, and also to be much more cautious, always, in any action or vote that could lead to the use of American military power and most particularly what we call 'boots on the ground.' ---->>>

Remember, the IDF, the Israeli Defense Forces, have a working relationship with the Palestinian Authority security forces, which have been incredibly professional. ---->>>

When you have armed militants, aided and abetted by a major country like Russia, able to use surface-to-air missiles to bring down a commercial airline, that is a form of terrorism. ---->>>
