„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.“

—  Bernard Baruch

Address on accepting The Churchman Award, New York (23 May 1944)
Contesto: 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.

„Let us not be deceived — we are today in the midst of a cold war.“

—  Bernard Baruch

Speech to the South Carolina Legislature, Columbia, SC (16 April 1947); Baruch said that the phrase "cold war" was suggested to him by H. B. Swope, editor of the New York World; the term had earlier been used by George Orwell (1945)
Contesto: 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.

Address on accepting The Churchman Award, New York (23 May 1944)

„Peace can be made tranquil and secure only by understanding and agreement fortified by sanctions. We must embrace international cooperation or international disintegration“

—  Bernard Baruch

Address to the United Nations Atomic Energy Commission (14 June 1946)
Contesto: 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.

„A speculator is a man who observes the future, and acts before it occurs.“

—  Bernard Baruch

20,000 Quotes and Quips by Evan Esar (1968) original quote in Baruch, Bernard, The Public Years. NY, Holt, Rinehart and Winston, 1960, p.31.

„I am quite sure that in the hereafter she will take me by the hand and lead me to my proper seat.“

—  Bernard Baruch

Regarding a childhood teacher, as quoted in News summaries (29 August 1955)

„Those who matter don't mind, and those who mind don't matter.“

—  Bernard Baruch

Often quoted response to Igor Cassini, a popular society columnist for the New York Journal American, when asked how he handled the seating arrangements for all those who attended his dinner parties, as quoted in Shake Well Before Using: A New Collection of Impressions and Anecdotes Mostly Humorous (1948) by Bennett Cerf, p. 249; the full response was "I never bother about that. Those who matter don't mind, and those who mind don't matter." This anecdote is also Chiasmus and has also become part of a larger expression, which has been commonly attributed to Dr. Seuss, even in print, but without citation of a specific work : "Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind."

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

—  Bernard Baruch

As quoted in Meyer Berger’s New York (1960)
