apathy

A Quote by John Ernst Steinbeck on apathy, self-satisfaction, sloth, and destroyers of nations

“I have named the destroyers of nations: comfort, plenty, and security - out of which grow a bored and slothful cynicism, in which rebellion against the world as it is, and myself as I am, are submerged in listless self-satisfaction.”

John Steinbeck (1902 - 1968)

A Quote by Robert Francis Kennedy on apathy, boldness, commitment, contentment, courage, future, idealism, ideas, passion, problems, projects, reason, society, and timidity

The future does not belong to those who are content with today, apathetic toward common problems and their fellow man alike, timid and fearful in the face of bold projects and new ideas. Rather, it will belong to those who can blend passion, reason and courage in a personal commitment to the ideals of American society.

A Quote by Lyman Abbott on anger, apathy, community, laws, and punishment

Every great sin ought to rouse a great anger. Mob law is better than no law at all. A community which rises in its wrath to punish with misdirected anger a great wrong is in a healthier moral condition than a community which looks upon its perpetration with apathy and unconcern.

Lyman Abbott (1835 - 1922)
