“It is easier to fight for one’s principles than to live up to them.” Alfred Adler
=
“A man generally has two reasons for doing a thing. One that sounds good, and a real one.” Pierpoint Morgan
=
“The degree of civilization in a society can be judged by entering its prisons.” Fyodor Dostoyevsky (1821-1881), Russian novelist
=
“Protest that endures is moved by a hope far more modest than that of public success: namely, the hope of preserving qualities in one’s own heart and spirit that would be destroyed by acquiescence.” Wendell Berry
=
“To sin is a human business, to justify sins is a devilish business.” Leo Nikolaevich Tolstoy, Russian author, 1828-1910
=
“A time comes when silence is betrayal.” Rev. Martin Luther King
=
“A human being is part of a whole, called by us the ‘Universe,’ a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separated from the rest—a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.” Albert Einstein
=
“If we work in marble, it will perish; if we work upon brass, time will efface it; if we rear temples, they will crumble into dust; but if we work upon immortal minds and instill into them just principles, we are then engraving upon tablets which no time will efface, but will brighten and brighten to all eternity.” Daniel Webster
=
“People who shut their eyes to reality simply invite their own destruction, and anyone who insists on remaining in a state of innocence long after that innocence is dead turns himself into a monster.” James Baldwin Biography, fiction writer, essayist, social critic, 1924-1987
=
“Nothing is easier than self-deceit. For what each man wishes, that he also believes to be true.” Demosthenes
=
“Think truly, and thy thoughts shall the world’s famine feed. Speak truly, and each word of thine shall be a fruitful seed. Live truly, and thy life shall be a great and noble creed.” Horatius Bonar, D.D.
=
“Those who have the privilege to know, have the duty to act.” Albert Einstein
=
“I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. And because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do the something that I can do. What I can do, I should do. And what I should do, by the grace of God, I will do.” Edward Everett Hale
=
“This is what you shall do: love the earth and sun and the animals, despise riches, give alms to everyone who asks, stand up for the stupid and crazy, devote your income and labor to others, hate tyrants, argue not concerning God, have patience and indulgence toward the people, take off your hat to nothing known or unknown.” Walt Whitman Biography, American poet, 1819-1892 (Preface to the 1855 edition of Leaves of Grass)
=
“A society that is in its higher circles and middle levels widely believed to be a network of smart rackets does not produce men with an inner moral sense; a society that is merely expedient does not produce men of conscience. A society that narrows the meaning of ‘success’ to the big money and in its terms condemns failure as the chief vice, raising money to the plane of absolute value, will produce the sharp operator and the shady deal. Blessed are the cynical, for only they have what it takes to succeed.” The Power Elite by C. Wright Mills
=
“In the general course of human nature, a power over man’s substance amounts to a power over his will.” Alexander Hamilton
=
“We cloak ourselves in cold indifference to the unnecessary suffering of others—even when we cause it.” James Carroll
=
“Vulgar and inactive minds confound familiarity with knowledge and conceive themselves informed of the whole nature of things when they are shown their form or told their use; but the speculatist, who is not content with superficial views, harasses himself with fruitless curiosity, and still, as he inquires more, perceives only that he knows less.” Dr. Samuel Johnson (1709-1784)
=
“Zealotry of either kind—the puritan’s need to regiment others or the victim’s passion for blaming everyone except himself—tends to produce a depressing civic stupidity. Each trait has about it the immobility of addiction. Victims become addicted to being victims: they derive identity, innocence and a kind of devious power from sheer, defaulting helplessness. On the other side, the candlesnuffers of behavioral and political correctness enact their paradox, accomplishing intolerance in the name of tolerance, regimentation in the name of betterment.” Lance Morrow (1939- ), essayist, professor
=
“Our job this day is to become part of the answer to the world’s immense and protracted suffering rather than continuing our ancient task of being part of the difficulty.” Hugh Prather, author, minister
