The truth still exists, the truth still matters. Roger Stone’s insistence that it doesn’t, his belligerence, his pride in his own lies are a threat to our most fundamental institutions, to the foundations of our democracy. If it goes unpunished it will not be a victory for one party or another; everyone loses.—U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson
A good character is the best tombstone. Those who loved you and were helped by you will remember you when forget-me-nots have withered. Carve your name on hearts, not on marble. —Charles Spurgeon
The record over the last four decades indicates that the United States cannot change Iran’s behavior through either coercion or incentive. And it does not have the kind of influence to force other countries in the region to alter their own approaches to Iran and the broader region. Under these circumstances, anything that’s possible is better than aspirations that bear little resemblance to reality—and what’s possible is containment. —Steven A. Cook, Foreign Policy
Such shameless spreading of fake information to bolster a political position is nefarious and extremely dangerous. The outright lies are one thing. But we must also beware — especially in the media — the subtler distortions of truth that get repeated so often that they become fact. Right now, it’s the still unproven claims that Iran intended to attack one or more of our embassies.—Jason Rezaian
The Islamic Republic is in danger. Do whatever it takes to end it. You have my order.—Ali Khamenei
Historians will record the blood-soaked days of November as some of the worst mass killings of protesters in modern Iranian history. —Nader Hashemi
A new Mideast war — ignited by Trump's sanctions, which would break his pledge to extricate us from the forever wars of the Middle East, and could cripple the U.S. and world economy — might produce a President Joe Biden or Pete Buttigieg in 2020.—Patrick J. Buchanan
The US sanctions are very powerful and have partially succeeded in their announced goal: Devastating the economy so badly so that the people will rise up. And the reaction; the protests primarily seem to be over the economy. Also it’s a very harsh, brutal government; it’s a rotten government, there’s no doubt about it. So when there is economic hardship it goes much broader.—Noam Chomsky
Accusing the US, Britain and others of stoking unrest, as the regime has done, will do nothing to persuade people that their dissatisfaction is being addressed. Brutal crackdowns fuel their grievances.—The Guardian Editorial
I wish economic austerity wasn't only for average people. That way this would hurt less. We're all drowning, it's only a matter of time.—Iranian Journalist
