rice1 Top 9 Quotes By Baby Boomer Condoleezza Rice“We`ve been a country that`s been fortunate to be protected by two oceans, to not have serious attacks on our territory for most of our history. And we were unfortunately reminded in a very devastating way of our vulnerability.”

“There was no silver bullet that could have prevented the 11 September attacks. There was nothing demonstrating or showing that something was coming in the United States. If there had been something, we would have acted on it.”

“The people of the Middle East share the desire for freedom. We have an opportunity – and an obligation – to help them turn this desire into reality.”

“So I think, if September 11 taught us anything, it taught us that we`re vulnerable, and vulnerable in ways that we didn`t fully understand.”

“Punish France, ignore Germany, and forgive Russia.”

“This is a worldwide war against ideals. There is no separate peace to be made with terrorism.”

“They are after our way of life and we have to deal with them. There is no other way other than with strength.” [on the London terrorist attack, 7th July 2005]

“There have been plenty of markers that show that this [Iraq] is a country that is worth the investment, because once it emerges as a country that is a stabilising factor, you will have a very different kind of Middle East.”

“We are at war, and our security as a nation depends on winning that war.”
~Condoleezza Rice

Condoleezza Rice (born November 14, 1954) in Birmingham, Alabama is a professor, diplomat and author. She served as the 66th United States Secretary of State, and the second to hold that office in the administration of President George W. Bush.

Rice was the first African-American woman secretary of state, as well as the second African American (after Colin Powell), and the second woman (after Madeleine Albright). Rice was President Bush’s National Security Advisor during his first term. Before joining the Bush administration, she was a professor of political science at Stanford University where she served as Provost from 1993 to 1999.

Trivia: Rice started learning French, music, figure skating and ballet at age three. At age 15, she began classes with the goal of becoming a concert pianist. Her plans changed when she realized that she did not play well enough to support herself through music alone. While Rice is not a professional pianist, she still practices often and plays with a chamber music group.
