clothes

A Quote by Robert A. Taft on charity, clothes, food, government, instinct, labor, life, planning, and politicians

The New Dealers, labor politicians and Socialists have tried to take advantage of the natural American instinct for charity to forward their plans to socialize the furnishing of the necessities of life to all. If the Government gives free medical care to everybody, why not free food, clothing and housing?

Robert A. Taft (1889 - 1953)

A Quote by Raymond B. Fosdick, D.D. on clothes, desires, dignity, environment, force, hope, knowledge, life, meaning, men, purpose, spirit, and truth

The search for truth is, as it always has been, the noblest expression of the human spirit. Man's insatiable desire for knowledge about himself, about his environment and the forces by which he is surrounded, gives life its meaning and purpose, and clothes it with final dignity.... And yet we know, deep in our hearts, that knowledge is not enough.... Unless we can anchor our knowledge to moral purposes, the ultimate result will be dust and ashes- dust and ashes that will bury the hopes and monuments of men beyond recovery.
