A Quote by unknown on belief, country, fear, freedom, god, mankind, and worship

I am an American. A free American. Free to speak - without fear. Free to worship God in my own way. Free to stand for what I think is right. Free to oppose what I believe is wrong. Free to choose those who govern my country. This heritage of freedom, I pledge to uphold for myself and all mankind.

A Quote by Thomas L. "Tom" Clancy, Jr. on change, control, country, destiny, and people

About forty percent of the people vote Democrat. About forty percent vote Republican. Of those eighty percent, most wouldn't change their votes if Adolf Hitler was running against Abe Lincoln - or against FDR. . . . That leaves twenty percent of the people who swing back one way or another . . . the true independents. . . . That twenty percent controls the destiny of the country.

Tom Clancy (1947 -)

A Quote by Thomas J. Watson on business, christianity, clarity, common sense, courage, country, decisions, doubt, divinity, education, facts, faith, force, future, humanity, leadership, life, men, nations, spirit, thinking, and vision

The greatest asset of a man, a business or a nation is faith. The men who built this country and those who made it prosper during its darkest days were men whose faith in its future was unshakable. Men of courage, they dared to go forward despite all hazards; men of vision, they always looked forward, never backward. Christianity, the greatest institution humanity has ever known, was founded by twelve men, limited in education, limited in resources, but with an abundance of faith and divine leadership. The vision essential to clear thinking; the common sense needed for wise decisions; the courage of convictions based on facts not fancies; and the constructive spirit of faith as opposed to the destructive forces of doubt will preserve our Christian ways of life.

A Quote by Thomas J. Watson on business, country, depression, genius, history, justice, people, prosperity, and talent

It is my personal opinion that we are going to recover from this depression and establish on a sounder and better basis, and we are going to reach greater heights of prosperity than ever before in this country. Now, that is just my personal opinion, but it is based on history, because that is what has happened following every depression. As we read the history of the various depressions we find that the people all felt about them just as we do about this one. One of the reasons we go ahead rapidly after coming out of a depression is that inventive genius and business talents have been put to a test, and they have always devised new and better ways to do things.

A Quote by Thomas J. Watson on america, business, country, future, and judgment

When I speak about the future development of our business, I want to include every other business in the United States. In my judgment, every legitimate business in our country today has a far better future ahead of it than it has ever had before.

A Quote by Thomas W. Lamont on children, country, darkness, freedom, mortality, sacrifice, sharing, struggle, time, and world

Shall any of us repine that it is our lot to live in perilous and sacrificial days? Rather I say we are glad that we live in this time of mortal struggle and are doing our share to put to flight the powers of darkness. Our children and grandchildren will be proud that this country saved freedom for itself by helping to preserve it for the world.

A Quote by Thomas Paine on army, conflict, country, crisis, earth, freedom, god, heaven, hell, love, men, patriotism, power, service, slavery, soldiers, soul, tyranny, value, and women

These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of his country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we may obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: 't is dearness only that gives everything its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods. It would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as Freedom should not be highly rated. Britain, with an army to enforce her tyranny, has declared that she has a right (not only to tax) but "to bind us in all cases whatsoever," and if being bound in that manner, is not slavery, then is there not such a thing as slavery upon earth. Even the expression is impious, for so unlimited a power can belong only to God.
