A Quote by General Dwight David Eisenhower on belief, government, peace, and people

I like to believe that people in the long run are going to do more to promote peace than our governments. Indeed, I think that people want peace so much that one of these days governments had better get out of the way and let them have it.

A Quote by General Dwight David Eisenhower on church, competence, god, good, insults, life, neighbors, and religion

What the church should be telling the worker is that the first demand religion makes on him is that he should be a good workman. If he is a carpenter he should be a competent carpenter. Church by all means on Sundays - but what is the use of church if at the very center of life a man defrauds his neighbor and insults God by poor craftsmanship.

A Quote by General Dwight David Eisenhower on hunger and theft

Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed.

A Quote by General Dwight David Eisenhower on life, soldiers, stupidity, and war

I hate war as only a soldier who has lived it can, only as one who has seen its brutality, its futility, its stupidity.

A Quote by General Dwight David Eisenhower on conviction, dignity, faith, generations, home, inspiration, labor, men, men and women, problems, responsibility, wilderness, and women

Men and women, inspired by faith in man's dignity, goaded by conviction in man's responsibility, labored that this land might be a better home for those who followed them. Because every American generation attacked its problems with fresh vigor, we have peopled a continent, subdued its prairies and wilderness, tamed its rivers and devoted its resources to the betterment of those who dwell in it.

A Quote by General Dwight David Eisenhower on action, concern, feeling, guilt, practice, and privacy

I make it a practice to avoid hating anyone. If someone's been guilty of despicable actions, especially toward me, I try to forget him. I used to follow a practice-somewhat contrived, I admit-to write the man's name on a piece of scrap paper, drop it into the lowest drawer of my desk, and say to myself: "That finishes the incident, and so far as I'm concerned, that fellow. The drawer became over the years a sort of private wastebasket for crumpled-up spite and discarded personalities. Besides, it seemed to be effective, and helped me avoid harboring useless black feelings.
