A Quote by Howard W. Hunter on community, enemies, friendship, love, needs, peace, security, and world

We need a more peaceful world, growing out of more peaceful families and neighborhoods and communities. To secure and cultivate such peace, "we must love others, even our enemies as well as our friends"

A Quote by Howard W. Hintz. DD on brothers, clarity, community, direction, family, goodwill, honesty, individuality, integrity, intelligence, nations, progress, sincerity, spirit, thinking, tolerance, understanding, and world

If we want more brotherhood and goodwill, more intelligence, more clear thinking, more honesty and sincerity, more tolerance and human understanding we must concentrate upon cultivating these qualities within ourselves. There is a natural progression in social advancement from the individual spirit to the family, to the community, to the nation and to the world at large. The line of progress can move in no other direction. There is no substitute for personal integrity.

A Quote by Herbert George Wells on civilization, community, facts, history, independence, politics, religion, society, and world

From the point of view of human history, the way in which the Thirteen States became independent is of far less importance than the fact that they did become independent. And with the establishment of their independence came a new sort of community into the world. It was like something coming out of an egg. It was a western European civilization that had broken free from the last traces of Empire and Christendom; it had not a vestige of monarchy left and no state religion. . . . It was in these respects such a clean start in political organization as the world had not seen before. . . . The new community had in fact gone right down to the bare and stripped fundamentals of human association, and it was building up a new sort of society and a new sort of state upon those foundations.

A Quote by Hermann Weyl on accidents, birth, certainty, community, effort, evolution, feeling, freedom, history, imagination, individuality, mind, necessity, questions, and time

The constructs of the mathematical mind are at the same time free and necessary. The individual mathematician feels free to define his notions and set up his axioms as he pleases. But the question is will he get his fellow mathematician interested in the constructs of his imagination. We cannot help the feeling that certain mathematical structures which have evolved through the combined efforts of the mathematical community bear the stamp of a necessity not affected by the accidents of their historical birth. Everybody who looks at the spectacle of modern algebra will be struck by this complementarity of freedom and necessity.

A Quote by Henry Brooks Adams on aim, certainty, community, friendship, life, needs, and thought

One friend in a lifetime is much; two are many; three are hardly possible. Friendship needs a certain parallelism of life, a community of thought, a rivalry of aim.

A Quote by H. G. Baker on beginning, community, desires, and plants

. . . the actual cultivation of root crops began with the weeding out of less useful plants from natural communities to allow more room for the desired plants. This was followed by the realization that the crop "roots" could be planted and would thrive in comparable habitats not already containing them if these, too, were weeded.
