Frasi John Howard

„But we will decide who comes to this country and the circumstances in which they come.“

— John Howard
Context: We are as you all know in a new and dangerous part of the world’s history. The tragic events of the 11th of September have changed our lives, they have caused us to take pause and think about the values we hold in common with the American people and free people around the world. That was an attack on Australia as much as it was an attack on the United States. It not only claimed the lives of Australians but it assaulted the very values that we hold dear and that we take for granted. So therefore a military response and wise diplomacy and a steady hand on the helm are needed to guide Australia through those very difficult circumstances. National Security is therefore about a proper response to terrorism. It's also about having a far sighted, strong, well thought out defence policy. It is also about having an uncompromising view about the fundamental right of this country to protect its borders. It's about this nation saying to the world we are a generous open hearted people, taking more refugees on a per capita basis than any nation except Canada, we have a proud record of welcoming people from 140 different nations. But we will decide who comes to this country and the circumstances in which they come. 2001 Federal Election Campaign Launch Speech, 28th October 2001

„It is, moreover, the unique gift of the party room“

— John Howard
Context: Leadership of the Liberal Party is a great honour, of which I remain profoundly conscious. It is, moreover, the unique gift of the party room. [ Letter to Liberal MPs in 2006]


„The most important civil liberty... is to stay alive and to be free from violence and death...“

— John Howard
[ Terrorism Summit] (Friday, August 5, 2005)


„Truth is absolute, truth is supreme, truth is never disposable in national political life.“
