We must learn to explore all the options and possibilities that confront us in a complex and rapidly changing world  (J William Fulbright Quotes) It is not our affluence, or our plumbing, or our clogged freeways that grip the imagination of others.

These values imply our adherence not only to liberty and individual freedom, but also to international peace, law and order, and constructive social purpose. When we depart from these values, we do so at our peril  (J William Fulbright Quotes) Insofar as international law is observed, it provides us with stability and order and with a means of predicting the behavior of those with whom we have reciprocal legal obligations  (J William Fulbright Quotes) To give [the Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba] even covert support is on a par with the hypocrisy and cynicism for which the United States is constantly denouncing the Soviet Union in the United Nations and elsewhere.

It has expanded our knowledge and our power, but not our capacity to use them with wisdom.  (J William Fulbright Quotes) Educational exchange can turn nations into people, contributing as no other form of communication can to the humanizing of international relations  (J William Fulbright Quotes) We are inclined to confuse freedom and democracy, which we regard as moral principles, with the way in which they are practiced in America with capitalism, federalism, and the two-party system, which are not moral principles but simply the preferred and accepted practices of the American people.  (J William Fulbright Quotes) A nation’s budget is full of moral implications; it tells what a society cares about and what it does not care about; it tells what its values are  (J William Fulbright Quotes) Some new machinery with adequate powers must be created now if our fine phrases and noble sentiments are to have substance and meaning for our children  (J William Fulbright Quotes) Insofar as it represents a genuine reconciliation of differences, a consensus is a fine thing; insofar as it represents a concealment of differences, it is a miscarriage of democratic procedure  (J William Fulbright Quotes) We must care to think about the unthinkable things, because when things become unthinkable, thinking stops and action becomes mindless  (J William Fulbright Quotes) We must dare to think about unthinkable things because when things become unthinkable thinking stops and action becomes mindless  (J William Fulbright Quotes) In a democracy dissent is an act of faith.
