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 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.
