Quotes About Angela Merkel

LIFE

Out of Africa [starring Robert Redford and Meryl Streep] but tomorrow it could be another.

On what her favorite movie is. The Economist. August 12, 2012

That isn’t a feeling I normally have, even though I can’t always achieve what’s important to me right away, of course. I have to be patient and convince others to go along with me. This applies to both domestic politics and international affairs.

On the last time she felt powerless. Spiegel. June 3, 2013

Because it’s a technology whose residual risks have unpredictable consequences.

On why, as a physicist, she doesn’t believe it’s important to continue using nuclear power in high-tech Germany. The Economist. August 12, 2012

I would talk to him about the fact that it is common here to shake each other’s hand.

On what she would say to a Muslim who does not want to shake her hand. Business Insider. September 2, 2016

Pride goeth before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall (Proverbs, chapter 16, verse 18.)

On what advice she would offer her successor. The Economist. August 12, 2012

A person who is 70 today is like a 60-year-old 25 years ago. Aging alone is not a reason for a society to stop being innovative. Fortunately, attitudes toward aging are changing. Staying active and lifelong learning are becoming increasingly important. Many old people have a great deal of experience to contribute. This was not sufficiently taken into account when early retirement programs came into effect in Germany. Because we want to maintain our standard of living, we decided to extend the retirement age to 67, so that people can work longer than in the past. Many can and want to do so.

On aging and its role in staying globally competitive as a nation. Spiegel. June 3, 2013

In 1957, I was just a small child of three years. I lived with my parents in Brandenburg, a region that belonged to the German Democratic Republic (GDR), the part of Germany that was not free. My father was a Protestant pastor. My mother, who had studied English and Latin to become a teacher, was not allowed to work in her chosen profession in the GDR.

On her childhood. Speech given by Merkel before the U.S. Congress. November 3, 2009

That Germany and Europe are stable, successful and good partners for the world.

On her personal political dream and career. The Economist. August 12, 2012

Not knowing in the morning what will happen in the evening. The fact that events are constantly confronting you with new situations. You meet new people all the time, and I’m very interested in people. The only thing that I used to dislike about being a scientist was not having much opportunity to speak to others during the day.

On what she likes about the political process. Financial Times. December 14, 2012

"I would like to thank you for the honorary doctorate from Nanjing University. Above all, I would like to give my warm regards to the professors and students in Nanjing. I only travelled as far as Beijing today, and not to Nanjing, but I remember my visit to the University very well indeed. It was very lively and we had intense discussions on topics such as women in politics and science. I wish you all the very best for the future.

An honorary doctorate stands for two things: the existence of close ties and the wish to strengthen these ties. I am very pleased to accept the honorary doctorate from Nanjing University that you are awarding me today on behalf of the People’s Republic of China here at the University of Chinese Academy of Sciences. I regard this both as a sign of close personal ties and of the good relations between our two countries. It is a sign of optimism, also as regards these relations becoming even closer in the future."

On receiving an honorary doctorate. Speech given at the Nanjing University in Beijing. June 12, 2016

To grow up in the neighborhood of handicapped people was an important experience for me. I learned back then to treat them in a very normal way.

On recalling seeing some residents strapped to benches when she was growing up. The New Yorker. December 1, 2014

I have to admit there are things you can’t explain in 160 characters. But for love you don’t need any characters at all.

On what is easiest to explain in 160 characters: the theory of relativity, love, or why it’s important to go and vote. The Economist. August 12, 2012

"You know I grew up in the GDR. As a 7-year-old child, I saw the Wall being erected. No one—although it was a stark violation of international law—believed at the time that one ought to intervene militarily in order to protect citizens of the GDR and whole Eastern bloc of the consequences of that, namely to live in lack of freedom for many, many years. And I don’t actually mind. Because
