We have seen [in the sports center] superb demonstrations of physical skill, determination, unity, discipline, coordination, cooperation, and dedication; but final victory always went to the team that knew best where the goal was and had the ability to do something about it.

A Quote by General Omar Nelson Bradley on america, dedication, faith, fear, food, fraud, hope, hunger, justice, nations, power, struggle, suspicion, trust, and world

It is to the United States that all freemen look for the light and the hope of the world. Unless we dedicate ourselves completely to this struggle, unless we combat hunger with food, fear with trust, suspicion with faith, fraud with justice - and threats with power, nations will surrender to the futility, the hopelessness, the panic on which wars feed.

A Quote by Mark Twain on apologies, communication, day, dedication, honesty, privilege, simplicity, and spelling

This morning arrives a letter from my ancient silver-mining comrade, Calvin H. Higbie, a man whom I have not seen nor had communication with for forty-four years. . . . [Footnote: Roughing It is dedicated to Higbie.] . . . I shall allow myself the privilege of copying his punctuation and his spelling, for to me they are a part of the man. He is as honest as the day is long. He is utterly simple-minded and straightforward, and his spelling and his punctuation are as simple and honest as he is himself. He makes no apology for them, and no apology is needed.

A Quote by Marie L. Gothein, on christianity, dedication, divinity, garden, life, retirement, silence, and time

Indian monks were the first to choose the garden as the proper setting for their lives, which were devoted to the contemplation of the divine; but with a prophetic eye we may see that the garden will often be dedicated in a like manner: at a later time Greek philosophers, and monks in early Christian days, will retire into their gardens for united, yet silent, contemplation.

A Quote by Lyndon Baines Johnson on dedication, destiny, effort, faith, imagination, life, energy, men, and peace

No man should think that peace comes easily. Peace does not come by merely wanting it, or shouting for it, or marching down Main Street for it. Peace is built brick by brick, mortared by the stubborn effort and the total energy and imagination of able and dedicated men. And it is built in the living faith that, in the end, man can and will master his own destiny.

A Quote by Joseph Kennedy on community, dedication, existence, fatherhood, god, home, individuality, interest, life, nations, opportunity, principles, trust, and youth

Develop in youth the devotion to home interests and home affairs, to community interests and community affairs that led the founding fathers to establish a nation of communities upon this continent, dedicated to a decent, free life of equal opportunity under God, and consecrated to the principle that the State exists as an instrument for serving the individual, not for enslaving him. So instructed, American youth can be trusted.

Joseph Kennedy (1888 - 1969)
