Frasi Harry Truman

Pubblicità

„In tutto il mondo ogni paese si trova sotto pressione economica. Paesi devastati dalla guerra cercano di ricostruire le loro industrie. Il loro bisogno di effettuare nei prossimi mesi importazioni sarà superiore alla loro capacità di esportare. Perciò essi sentono la necessità di controllare rigidamente le importazioni […]. Se questa tendenza non verrà rovesciata, il governo degli Stati uniti si troverà presto o tardi sotto pressione perché faccia uso anch'esso degli stessi strumenti, nella lotta per assicurarsi mercati di materie prime […]. Ma questo è proprio ciò che noi abbiamo sempre cercato di evitare sin dal la fine della guerra. Non è un metodo americano. Non è la via verso la pace […]. Il nostro popolo è unito. Esso è stato capace di comprendere le sue responsabilità. Esso è pronto ad assumere il proprio ruolo di guida. Esso è risoluto a operare per un ordine internazionale nel quale la pace e l'ordine siano durevoli. Pace e libertà non sono raggiunte in modo facile. Non possono essere ottenute con la forza. Esse vengono dalla mutua comprensione e collaborazione, dal desiderio di condursi lealmente in tutti campi politici economici con tutte le nazioni amiche. Sia nostra volontà continuare in questa via ora e nel futuro. Se altre nazioni del mondo faranno altrettanto, sarà possibile raggiungere l'obiettivo della pace e della libertà nel mondo.“

„It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit“

—  Harry Truman
Misattributed, This is attributed to Truman in some sources, but a similar saying is recorded as early as 1909 https://books.google.com/books?id=bidJAAAAIAAJ&dq=how%20much%20%22care%20who%20gets%20the%20credit%22&pg=PA26#v=onepage&q=how%20much%20%22care%20who%20gets%20the%20credit%22&f=false.

„When a High Explosive shell bursts in fifteen feet and does you no damage, you can bet your sweet life you bear a charmed life and no mistake.“

—  Harry Truman
Context: Now days battles are just sort of a "You shoot up my town and I'll shoot up yours." They say that Americans don't play fair. They shoot 'em up all the time. I hope so because I want to finish this job as soon as possible and begin making an honest living again... Have fired 500 rounds at the Germans, at my command, been shelled, didn't run away thank the Lord and never lost a man. Probably shouldn't have told you but you'll not worry any more if you know I'm in it than if you think I am. Have had the most strenuous work of my life, am very tired but otherwise absolutely in good condition physically mentally and morally... When a High Explosive shell bursts in fifteen feet and does you no damage, you can bet your sweet life you bear a charmed life and no mistake. I didn't have sense enough to know what was going on until the next day and then I was pretty scared. The men think I am not much afraid of shells but they don't know. I was too scared to run and that is pretty scared. Letter to Bess Wallace (8 September 1918) https://www.trumanlibrary.org/whistlestop/study_collections/ww1/documents/fulltext.php?documentid=1-15

„At the present moment in world history nearly every nation must choose between alternative ways of life. The choice is too often not a free one.“

—  Harry Truman
Context: At the present moment in world history nearly every nation must choose between alternative ways of life. The choice is too often not a free one. One way of life is based upon the will of the majority, and is distinguished by free institutions, representative government, free elections, guarantees of individual liberty, freedom of speech and religion, and freedom from political oppression. The second way of life is based upon the will of a minority forcibly imposed upon the majority. It relies upon terror and oppression, a controlled press and radio; fixed elections, and the suppression of personal freedoms. I believe that it must be the policy of the United States to support free peoples who are resisting attempted subjugation by armed minorities or by outside pressures. I believe that we must assist free peoples to work out their own destinies in their own way. Speech to a joint session of the US Congress (12 March 1947), outlining what became known as The Truman Doctrine

„We have used it in order to shorten the agony of war, in order to save the lives of thousands and thousands of young Americans. We shall continue to use it until we completely destroy Japan's power to make war. Only a Japanese surrender will stop us.“

—  Harry Truman
Report on the Potsdam Conference (1945), Context: I realize the tragic significance of the atomic bomb. Its production and its use were not lightly undertaken by this Government. But we knew that our enemies were on the search for it. We know now how close they were to finding it. And we knew the disaster which would come to this Nation, and to all peace-loving nations, to all civilization, if they had found it first. That is why we felt compelled to undertake the long and uncertain and costly labor of discovery and production. We won the race of discovery against the Germans. Having found the bomb we have used it. We have used it against those who attacked us without warning at Pearl Harbor, against those who have starved and beaten and executed American prisoners of war, against those who have abandoned all pretense of obeying international laws of warfare. We have used it in order to shorten the agony of war, in order to save the lives of thousands and thousands of young Americans. We shall continue to use it until we completely destroy Japan's power to make war. Only a Japanese surrender will stop us.

„We are now prepared to obliterate more rapidly and completely every productive enterprise the Japanese have above ground in any city.“

—  Harry Truman
Announcing the Bombing of Hiroshima (1945), Context: We are now prepared to obliterate more rapidly and completely every productive enterprise the Japanese have above ground in any city. We shall destroy their docks, their factories, and their communications. Let there be no mistake; we shall completely destroy Japan's power to make war. It was to spare the Japanese people from utter destruction that the ultimatum of July 26 was issued at Potsdam. Their leaders promptly rejected that ultimatum. If they do not now accept our terms they may expect a rain of ruin from the air, the like of which has never been seen on this earth.

„The atomic bomb is too dangerous to be loose in a lawless world.“

—  Harry Truman
Report on the Potsdam Conference (1945), Context: The atomic bomb is too dangerous to be loose in a lawless world. That is why Great Britain, Canada, and the United States, who have the secret of its production, do not intend to reveal that secret until means have been found to control the bomb so as to protect ourselves and the rest of the world from the danger of total destruction.

„They are trying to make an elder statesmen of me, but they will never succeed.“

—  Harry Truman
Context: Student: Some people suggest that you are getting mellowed and less militant. Is that so? Truman: Not in the slightest degree. They are trying to make an elder statesmen of me, but they will never succeed. Mr. Citizen, Harry Truman (1960)
