“Today the people of Barbados have lost a true patriot and a champion of democracy, the medical profession has lost an inspirational pioneer, and I have lost a dear friend and trusted mentor. In the ruthlessly adversarial and bruising atmosphere of partisan politics in Barbados, Richie Haynes (Sir Richard Haynes) stood apart. He was a selfless politician for whom integrity, transparency and respect for the principles of good governance were paramount, and never worth sacrificing on the altar of power and personal ambition. Throughout his political career Richie was a courageous and uncompromising defender of the national interest and a deep and thoughtful exponent of policies that would strengthen the development process and enhance the quality of life of all Barbadians. For them he was the authentic voice of conscience, a proponent of the politics of ideas not of pointless partisan confrontation, a creator of space for alternative views to be heard and respected.” – Mia Mottley, Opposition Leader, Barbados (Barbados Nation)
“Some people often referred to Sir Richard (“Richie”) Haynes as possibly the best Prime Minister Barbados never had.” – Albert Branford, Journalist, Barbados Nation (Barbados Nation)
“The question of power has not even entered my consciousness because I feel that if you are people oriented then representation must be your main interest. I am convinced that once good and honest representation is sought for the people who elect you, then all else will fall into place.” – The late Sir Richard Haynes, former Minister of Finance, Barbados (Barbados Nation)
“American (Airlines) is committed to providing our customers with easy and convenient access to destinations around the globe.

“It was you, the CEO of Delta, vaguely familiar from the safety video. It was you, Richard Anderson, who gave up your seat for me. It was you, the Delta CEO, who helped me with my bag. It was you, acting just like an ordinary Mr. Anderson, who showed me to my seat. You, Richard Anderson, the CEO of Delta, did all that for me, just an average, middle-aged, woman with, as far as anyone at Delta knew, no special reason to get home. But more importantly, it was all of your employees that day that did so much helping me to get home – and now I know why. Because Delta is led by you, Richard Anderson, a dedicated and inspiring leader who so clearly demonstrates, at his very core, that he leads by example, and does not set himself above all those who allow this airline to exist.” – Jessie Frank, Delta Air Lines passenger (
“People of mediocre ability sometimes achieve outstanding success because they don’t know when to quit. Most men succeed because they are determined to.” – George Allen, American football coach
