A Quote by John (Jay) Davison Rockefeller, IV on motherhood, questions, and wives

My mother was given to a typical question: "We have always done this. Why should we do anything else?" But my wife's typical question was "We have always done this. Why don't we do it another way or, better still, why not do something else?"

A Quote by John (Jay) Davison Rockefeller, IV on belief, character, good, power, promises, wealth, and worth

I believe in the sacredness of a promise, that a man's word should be as good as his bond; that character - not wealth or power or position - is of supreme worth.

A Quote by John (Jay) Davison Rockefeller, IV on concern, conflict, death, inspiration, life, problems, religion, spirit, spirituality, strength, women, and world

What the world craves today is a more spiritual and less formal religion. To the man or woman facing death, great conflict, the big problems of human life, the forms of religion are of minor concern, while the spirit of religion is a desperately needed source of inspiration, comfort and strength.
