A Quote by Thomas Merton on thomas merton, writer, social critic, monk, caution, freedom, liberation, and condemn

"If a writer is so cautious that he never writes anything that cannot be criticized, he will never be able to write anything that can be read. If you want to help other people you have got to make up your mind to write things that some men will condemn."

A Quote by Rabban Gamaliel on government, caution, interests, and advantage

Be careful in your relations with the government; for they draw no man close to themselves except for their own interests. They appear as friends when it is to their advantage, but they do not stand by a man in his time of stress.

A Quote by Wilford Woodruff on age, caution, children, contentment, debt, economics, fashion, habits, hope, possessions, and wealth

We feel led to caution . . . against forming the bad habit of incurring debt and taking upon themselves obligations which frequently burden them heavier than they can bear, and lead to the loss of their homes and other possessions. We know it is the fashion of the age to use credit to the utmost limit. . . . We, therefore, repeat our counsel . . . to shun debt. Be content with moderate gains, and be not misled by illusory hopes of acquiring wealth. . . . Let our children also be taught habits of economy, and not to indulge in tastes which they cannot gratify without running into debt.

Wilford Woodruff (1807 - 1898)

A Quote by Sun Tzu on anger, army, caution, change, contentment, country, death, destruction, good, life, peace, time, and elightenment

Anger may in time change to gladness; vexation may be succeeded by content. But a kingdom that has once been destroyed can never come again into being; norcan the dead ever be brought back to life. Hence the enlightened ruler is heedful, and the good general full of caution. This is the way to keep a country at peace and an army intact.
