„Esperanto byl pro mne velmi užitečný jazyk, protože ať jste se dostali kamkoliv, vždycky jste tam našli někoho, s kým jste si mohli pohovořit.“

—  George Soros

„As long as people genuinely care for the people they're trying to help, they can actually do a lot of good.“

—  George Soros
Interview with Mark Shapiro (2000), Context: It's more difficult, you know, to bring about positive change than it is to make money. It's much easier to make money, because it's a much easier way to measure success — the bottom line. When it comes to social consequences, they've got all different people acting in different ways, very difficult to even have a proper criterion of success. So, it's a difficult task. Why not use an entrepreneurial, rather than a bureaucratic, approach. As long as people genuinely care for the people they're trying to help, they can actually do a lot of good.

„The world order needs a major overhaul.“

„Equilibrium itself has rarely been observed in real life — market prices have a notorious habit of fluctuating.“

—  George Soros
Context: Economic theory is devoted to the study of equilibrium positions. The concept of equilibrium is very useful. It allows us to focus on the final outcome rather than the process that leads up to it. But the concept is also very deceptive. It has the aura of something empirical: since the adjustment process is supposed to lead to an equilibrium, an equilibrium position seems somehow implicit in our observations. That is not true. Equilibrium itself has rarely been observed in real life — market prices have a notorious habit of fluctuating. The Alchemy of Finance: Reading the Mind of the Market (1987)

„We live in a global economy, but the political organization of our global society is woefully inadequate.“

—  George Soros
The Crisis of Global Capitalism (1998), Context: We live in a global economy, but the political organization of our global society is woefully inadequate. We are bereft of the capacity to preserve peace and to counteract the excesses of the financial markets. Without these controls, the global economy, is liable to break down

„You know, I learned at a very early age that what kind of social system or political system prevails is very important. Not just for your well-being, but for your very survival.“

—  George Soros
Interview with David Brancaccio (2003), Context: You know, I learned at a very early age that what kind of social system or political system prevails is very important. Not just for your well-being, but for your very survival. Because, you know, I could have been killed by the Nazis. I could have wasted my life under the Communists. So, that's what led me to this idea of an open society. And that is the idea that is motivating me.

„First, there is no single sustainable model for national success. Second, the American model, which has indeed been successful, is not available to others, because our success depends greatly on our dominant position at the center of the global capitalist system, and we are not willing to yield it.“

—  George Soros
Context: The supremacist ideology of the Bush Administration stands in opposition to the principles of an open society, which recognize that people have different views and that nobody is in possession of the ultimate truth. The supremacist ideology postulates that just because we are stronger than others, we know better and have right on our side. The very first sentence of the September 2002 National Security Strategy (the President's annual laying out to Congress of the country's security objectives) reads, "The great struggles of the twentieth century between liberty and totalitarianism ended with a decisive victory for the forces of freedom and a single sustainable model for national success: freedom, democracy, and free enterprise." The assumptions behind this statement are false on two counts. First, there is no single sustainable model for national success. Second, the American model, which has indeed been successful, is not available to others, because our success depends greatly on our dominant position at the center of the global capitalist system, and we are not willing to yield it. "The Bubble of American Supremacy" in The Atlantic Monthly (December 2003), p. 63 - 66 http://www.globalpolicy.org/empire/analysis/2003/12supremacy.htm

„The development of a global economy has not been matched by the development of a global society.“

—  George Soros
The Crisis of Global Capitalism (1998), Context: The development of a global economy has not been matched by the development of a global society. The basic unit for political and social life remains the nation-state. International law and international institutions, insofar as they exist, are not strong enough to prevent war or the large-scale abuse of human rights in individual countries. Ecological threats are not adequately dealt with. Global financial markets are largely beyond the control of national or international authorities.
