A Quote by Charles A. Lindbergh, Jr. on consequences, country, danger, government, history, influence, judaism, lies, majorities, peace, people, strength, survival, tolerance, virtue, and war

Instead of agitating for war, the Jewish groups in this country should be opposing it in every possible way, for they will be among the first to feel its consequences. Tolerance is a virtue that depends upon peace and strength. History shows that it cannot survive war and devastation. A few very far-sighted Jewish people realize this and stand opposed to intervention. But the majority still do not. Their greatest danger to this country lies in their ownership and influence in our motion pictures, our press, our radio, and our government.

A Quote by Brooke Foss Westcott on agreement, country, diplomacy, hell, home, life, problems, and time

A diplomat is a person who: -always knows what to talk about, but doesn't always talk about what he knows. -always tries to settle problems created by other diplomats. -can always make himself misunderstood. -can bring home the bacon without spilling the beans. -can say the nastiest things in the nicest way. -can tell you to go to hell so tactfully that you look forward to the trip. -comes right out and says what he thinks when he agrees with you. -divides his time between running for office and running for cover. -lets you do all the talking while he gets what he wants. -puts his cards on the table, but still has some up each sleeve. -will lay down your life for his country.

A Quote by Robert ‘Bob' Dole on america, beginning, compassion, country, death, doubt, family, fatherhood, future, generosity, god, home, learning, lies, life, love, needs, neighbors, richness, strength, understanding, war, wealth, world, worth, and yout

Anyone who wants to understand me must first understand Russell, Kansas. It is my home, where my roots lie, and a constant source of strength. My father's view of the world as "stewers versus doers" registered early. From my neighbors, I learned to feel deeply for God, country and family. In Russell, I came to understand there are things worth living for, and, if need be, dying for. The Russell of my youth was not a place of wealth. Yet it was generous with the values that would shape my outlook and the compassion that would restore life's richness after I had begun to doubt my future following the war. Ever since, I have tried in my own way to give back some of what the town has given me. I have tried to defend and serve the America I learned to love in Russell.
