A Quote by Marion G. Romney on conformity, discipline, facts, inspiration, knowledge, men, wisdom, and words

Not only does inspiration from the Lord compensate for want of facts; it also induces men by self-discipline, to conform in their personal conduct and in their dealings one with another to the highest standards they know. In other words, it gives men the capacity which distinguishes wisdom from knowledge.

A Quote by Marion G. Romney on civilization, direction, god, hope, learning, people, power, science, spirituality, survival, thought, and war

Many people correctly make the point that our only hope is to turn to God. For example, Charles Lindbergh, who said that in his young manhood he thought "science was more important than either man or God," and that "without a highly developed science modern man lacks the power to survive," . . . went to Germany after the war to see what Allied bombing had done to the Germans, who had been leaders in science. There, he says, "I learned that if his civilization is to continue, modern man must direct the material power of his science by the spiritual truths of his God."

The whole problem is spirituality--not finances. Spiritually strong = welfare strong.
