Memoirs (1993)

„Some things I never learned to like. I didn't like to kiss babies, though I didn't mind kissing their mothers.“

—  Pierre Trudeau

Part 3, 1974 - 1979 Victory And Defeat, p. 178
Memoirs (1993)
Kontext: Some things I never learned to like. I didn't like to kiss babies, though I didn't mind kissing their mothers. I didn't like to slap backs or other parts of the anatomy. I liked hecklers, because they brought my speeches alive. I liked supporters, because they looked happy. And I really enjoyed mingling with people, if there wasn't too much of it.

„Criminal law therefore cannot be based on the notion of sin; it is crimes that it must define.“

—  Pierre Trudeau

Part 1, 1919 - 1968 The Road to 24 Sussex Drive, p. 83
Memoirs (1993)
Kontext: What is considered sinful in one of the great religions to which citizens belong isn't necessarily sinful in the others. Criminal law therefore cannot be based on the notion of sin; it is crimes that it must define.

„A man who tries to please all men by weakening his position or compromising his beliefs, in the end has neither position nor beliefs.“

—  Pierre Trudeau

A man must say what he believes clearly, without dogma, and without guile.
Statement during the 1968 election campaign, as quoted in party literature. "Pierre Elliott Trudeau for Canada", 1968 leaflet http://www.ebay.com/itm/Pierre-Elliott-Trudeau-for-Canada-1968-Leaflet-Bill-Vander-Zalm-Liberal-Party-BC/322004097304?_trksid=p2045573.c100033.m2042&_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20131017132637%26meid%3D9020a37aa0b24dd68f1d3f5025b50b52%26pid%3D100033%26rk%3D2%26rkt%3D4%26sd%3D381542319016

„The attainment of a just society is the cherished hope of civilized men.“

—  Pierre Trudeau

Speech from the Throne, House of Commons (12 September 1968)
Kontext: The attainment of a just society is the cherished hope of civilized men. While perhaps more difficult to formulate for groups than for individuals, even the members of majorities — political, religious, linguistic or economic — must know what it is to suffer injustice. My Government is deeply concerned to provide and to ensure increased justice, dignity and recognition to the individual, particularly in an age which is characterized by large governments, industrial automation, social regimentation and old-fashioned laws. A great deal has been accomplished in recent years to make the Canadian society more just in terms of income distribution and security against the vicissitudes of life.

„A country is something that is built every day out of certain basic shared values.“

—  Pierre Trudeau

Part 5, Life After Politics, p. 366
Memoirs (1993)
Kontext: A country, after all, is not something you build as the pharaohs built the pyramids, and then leave standing there to defy eternity. A country is something that is built every day out of certain basic shared values.

„The Jesuits were good educators, exceptional teachers.“

—  Pierre Trudeau

Part 1, 1919 - 1968 The Road to 24 Sussex Drive, p. 21
Memoirs (1993)
Kontext: The Jesuits were good educators, exceptional teachers. In an era and in a society where freedom of speech was not held in high regard, of course, that the discourse be focused on what they were teaching, but we were able to go beyond this framework without incurring too great a risk.

„Bilingualism is not an imposition on the citizens. The citizens can go on speaking one language or six languages, or no languages if they so choose. Bilingualism is an imposition on the state and not the citizens.“

—  Pierre Trudeau

Statement to the American Society of Newspaper Editors, as quoted in Problems of Journalism (1966) by the American Society of Newspaper Editors
Unsourced variant : "Bilingualism is not an imposition on the citizens — it is an imposition on the state."
Variante: Bilingualism is an imposition on the state and not the citizens.

„I had been struck by the amateurism that reigned in the upper echelons of the federal government.“

—  Pierre Trudeau

Part 2, 1968 - 1974 Power And Responsibility, p. 107
Memoirs (1993)
Kontext: When I had been appointed to the Cabinet in 1967, I had been struck by the amateurism that reigned in the upper echelons of the federal government.

„I am trying to put Quebec in its place — and the place of Quebec is in Canada“

—  Pierre Trudeau

Speech on the Quebec separatist movement (25 June 1968), exact quote take from footage as seen in "Pierre Elliott Trudeau Memoirs" (27 Jan 2009), Disk 2, 24:05; only the bolded portion has usually been quoted in print, as quoted in Winnipeg Free Press (25 June 1968), and in "Flamboyant former Canadian leader Pierre Trudeau dies" at CNN (28 September 2000) https://listserv.utoronto.ca/cgi-bin/wa?A2=parkinsn;RzFzCg;20000929032301%2B0200d
Kontext: Well, I am trying to put Quebec in its place — and the place of Quebec is in Canada, nowhere else.

„What sets a canoeing expedition apart is that it purifies you more rapidly and inescapably than any other.“

—  Pierre Trudeau

"Exhaustion and Fulfillment : The Ascetic in a Canoe" (1944) http://www.canoe.ca/che-mun/102trudeau.html <!-- republished in Trudeau: PM, Patriot, Paddler -->
Kontext: What sets a canoeing expedition apart is that it purifies you more rapidly and inescapably than any other. Travel a thousand miles by train and you are a brute; pedal five hundred on a bicycle and you remain basically a bourgeois; paddle a hundred in a canoe and you are already a child of nature.

„A society which emphasizes uniformity is one which creates intolerance and hate.“

—  Pierre Trudeau

Speech to the Ukrainian - Canadian Congress, Winnipeg, Manitoba (9 October 1971)
Kontext: There is no such thing as a model or ideal Canadian. What could be more absurd than the concept of an "all Canadian" boy or girl? A society which emphasizes uniformity is one which creates intolerance and hate.

„If I can be permitted to turn around a phrase, I would say that I'm kind of sorry I won't have you to kick around any more.“

—  Pierre Trudeau

Statement to the press, referencing "You won't have Dick Nixon to kick around any more", during his resignation speech (21 November 1979) http://www.cbc.ca/archives/entry/1979-trudeau-steps-down-as-liberal-leader

„Harvard was an extraordinary window on the world.“

—  Pierre Trudeau

Part 1, 1919 - 1968 The Road to 24 Sussex Drive, p. 39
Memoirs (1993)

„I don't know if the member of Prince Edward-Hastings thinks he's on camera, but he's not.“

—  Pierre Trudeau

Comment in the House of Commons in response to the heckling of George Hees, October 17, 1977 (this particular Question Period was the first to be televised, prompting Trudeau's remark. In actuality, John Raymond Ellis was the Prince Edward-Hastings MP.) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f2kRv0kW5Oc#t=6m51s

„There's no place for the state in the bedrooms of the nation.“

—  Pierre Trudeau

L'État n'a pas d'affaires dans les chambres à coucher de la nation.
Comment in the Canadian House of Commons on the decriminalization of homosexuality (22 December 1967)[citation needed]
Although usually attributed solely to Trudeau, the quote is a paraphrase by him from an editorial that appeared in the Globe and Mail on December 12, 1967 (page 61) which read in part: "Obviously, the state's responsibility should be to legislate rules for a well-ordered society. It has no right or duty to creep into the bedrooms of the nation."
