When I travel officially... and when I travel on a private basis, I have protection that is less suffocating. But I am protected everywhere.
Francois Hollande
In my own situation, I cannot show anything... And I believe that everybody now understands that, president or not president, one is entitled to have a private life. But of course when one is president, this creates duties and obligations.
Francois Hollande
We need the help of other member countries and leaders who, like us, want to see a change in Europe's direction. That's also my logic when I tell voters that electing me president will not only shape France's future, but also initiate change across all of Europe.
Francois Hollande
I gave myself an objective, to be the second president from Correze and finally to be the successor to Francois Mitterrand.
Francois Hollande
We're all taking part in this solidarity. The French, the Germans, just like all the Europeans in the ESM. Let's stop thinking that there's only one country who's going to pay for the others. That's false.
Francois Hollande
I could have made a fortune in cheeseburgers, but I finally chose politics.
Francois Hollande
It is intolerable that in our country citizens should feel so upset and under assault because of their religious choice that they would conclude that they have to hide.
Francois Hollande
Not in the constitution, but I would propose a law to the French parliament that provides for reducing the budget deficit year by year, until we have reached a balanced budget by 2017.
Francois Hollande
If the discussion centres on the essential principle of the E.U., the free movement of people and the ability to make decisions together, in that case, we don't want treaty change.
Francois Hollande
What is happening in the Sahel for the past several months is that terrorists have structured themselves, have installed themselves. It's not simply a menace for west Africa.
Francois Hollande
To be influential in tomorrow's world, to defend our values and our development model, France needs Europe and Europe needs France.
Francois Hollande
France is the bridge between northern Europe and southern Europe. I refuse any division. If Europe has been reunified, it's not for it to then fall into egotism or 'each for one's own'. Our duty is to set common rules around the principles of responsibility and solidarity.
Francois Hollande
A country outside the euro zone cannot have a veto over countries in the euro zone.
Francois Hollande
France has been struck on the day of her national holiday - the 14th of July, Bastille Day - the symbol of liberty, because human rights are denied by fanatics, and France is clearly their target.
Francois Hollande
I don't want euro bonds that serve to mutualize the entire debt of the countries in the euro zone. That can only work in the longer-term. I want euro bonds to be used to finance targeted investments in future-oriented growth projects. It isn't the same thing. Let's call them 'project bonds' instead of euro bonds.
Francois Hollande
Things are going better: there is more growth, less deficit, more competitiveness, better margins for companies, more purchasing power for workers.
Francois Hollande
France wants Britain to remain in the E.U.; indeed, how can we imagine that friendly nation that is our ally and played a role on the international stage could be outside the E.U.?
Francois Hollande
I perfectly understood President Obama's attitude throughout the French presidential campaign. He had no reason to distance himself from Nicolas Sarkozy. It's the basic solidarity that leaders who worked together owe to each other.
Francois Hollande
