A Quote by Owen D. Young on future, men, needs, understanding, and worry

The man who can put himself in the place of other men, who can understand the workings of their minds, need never worry about what the future has in store for him.

A Quote by Owen D. Young on acceptance, danger, friendship, government, politics, power, and temptation

Government means politics, and interference by government carries with it always the implication of coercion. We may accept the expanding power of bureaucrats so long as we bask in their friendly smile. But it is a dangerous temptation. Today politics may be our friend and tomorrow we may be its victims.

A Quote by Owen D. Young on balance, desires, and judgment

We are not to judge thrift solely by the test of saving or spending. If one spends what he should prudently save, that certainly is to be deplored. But if one saves what he should prudently spend, that is not necessarily to be commended. A wise balance between the two is the desired end.

A Quote by Owen D. Young on change, concern, crisis, day, heart, life, mind, spirit, time, and world

What I am concerned about in this fast-moving world in a time of crises, both in foreign and domestic affairs, is not so much a program as a spirit of approach, not so much a mind as a heart. A program lives today and dies tomorrow. A mind, if it be open, may change with each new day, but the spirit and the heart are as unchanging as the tides.
