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 books, existence, and libraries

Don't join the book burners. Do not think you are going to conceal thoughts by concealing evidence that they ever existed. Don't be afraid to go into your library and read every book.

A Quote by General Dwight David Eisenhower on acceptance, citizenship, dictatorship, exercise, government, kindness, life, opportunity, readiness, and thought

There is a kind of dictatorship that can come about through a creeping paralysis of thought, readiness to accept paternalistic measures by government, and along with those measures comes a surrender of our own responsibilities and therefore a surrender of our own thought over our own lives and our own right to exercise the vote. The free system gives the right to every citizen to do something for himself. Because he has the right, the opportunity is always there.
