Put two or three men in positions of conflicting authority. This will force them to work at loggerheads, allowing you to be the ultimate arbiter.
Franklin D. Roosevelt (1882 - 1945)

When you get to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on.
More than an end to war, we want an end to the beginnings of all wars.
No man is justified in doing evil on the ground of expedience.

The only limit to our realization of tomorrow will be our doubts of today. Let us move forward with strong and active faith.
The only thing we have to fear is fear itself - nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralyzes needed efforts to convert retreat into advance.

We stand committed to the proposition that freedom is no half-and-half affair. If the average citizen is guaranteed equal opportunity in the polling place, he must have equal opportunity in the market place.
There are many ways of going forward, but only one way of standing still.
Happiness . . . it lies in the joy of achievement, in the thrill of creative effort.
The test of our progress is not whether we add to the abundance of those who have much. It is whether we provide enough to those who have little.
