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 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.
