destruction

A Quote by Marvin J. Ashton on destruction, devil, glory, present, and trying

Satan is ever present, trying to destroy our glory and remove our crown. One of his most powerful tools is discouragement. Don't let your discouragement make Satan rejoice.

A Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr. on destruction, evil, violence, and weakness

The ultimate weakness of violence is that it is a descending spiral, begetting the very thing it seeks to destroy. Instead of diminishing evil, it multiplies it.

A Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr. on destruction, hatred, justice, love, understanding, and violence

Violence as a way of achieving racial justice is both impractical and immoral. It is impractical because it is a descending spiral ending in destruction for all. It is immoral because it seeks to humiliate the opponent rather than win his understanding; it seeks to annihilate rather than to convert. Violence is immoral because it thrives on hatred rather than love.

A Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr. on danger, destruction, people, and society

There is nothing more dangerous than to build a society, with a large segment of people in that society, who feel that they have no stake in it; who feel that they have nothing to lose. People who have a stake in their society, protect that society, but when they don't have it, they unconsciously want to destroy it.

A Quote by Marc Racicot on crisis, destruction, philosophy, preparation, and service

Decrying the mismanagement that led to the summer's catastrophic wildfires: The Clinton administration didn't cause these fires, but their policies have left the Forest Service under-funded and under-prepared for this crisis. I don't think it's a conspiracy, but it's a philosophy they have that leads to explosive fires that destroy everything.

A Quote by Ludwig Josef Johann Wittgenstein on destruction and language

Where does our investigation get its importance from, since it seems only to destroy everything interesting, that is, all that is great and important? (As it were all the buildings, leaving behind only bits of stone and rubble.) What we are destroying is nothing but houses of cards and we are clearing up the ground of language on which they stand.

Ludwig Wittgenstein (1889 - 1951)

Nationalism and internationalism! Both must stand together or the human race will be utterly destroyed. We shall never be able to destroy nationalism and we shall never be able to live without internationalism.
