Zitate Pierre Trudeau

„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.

„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.

„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.

„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.

„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.“

—  Pierre Trudeau

Unsourced variant : "Bilingualism is not an imposition on the citizens — it is an imposition on the state."

Kontext: 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.

„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.
