A Quote by Dr. Linus Carl Pauling on acceptance, destruction, ideas, power, weapons, and world

The power to destroy the world by the use of nuclear weapons is a power that cannot be used-we cannot accept the idea of such monstrous immmorality.

A Quote by Dr. Harold W. Dodds on destruction, hope, needs, theory, war, and world

There are plenty of reasons for hope. There need be no war with Russia, and those who would fight her now, on the theory that we had better do it and get it over with, are lightheaded promoters of world destruction.

A Quote by Dora Russell on destruction, knowledge, trust, and world

We do not want our world to perish. But in our quest for knowledge, century by century, we have placed all our trust in a cold, impartial intellect which only brings us nearer to destruction.

A Quote by Donald F. Baillie on dependence, destruction, god, humanity, jesus, life, personality, and personality

Jesus lived His life in complete dependence upon God, as we all ought to live our lives. But such dependence does not destroy human personality. Man is never so fully and so truly personal as when he is living in complete dependence upon God. This is how personality comes into its own. This is humanity at its most personal.

A Quote by David Oman McKay on action, character, destruction, efficiency, evil, force, impulses, jealousy, opportunity, power, psychology, and yielding

He taught, and modern physiology and psychology confirm, that hate and jealousy and other evil passions destroy a man's physical vigor and efficiency. What a man continually thinks about determines his actions in times of opportunity and stress. A man's reaction to his appetites and impulses when they are roused gives the measure of that man's character. In these reactions are revealed the man's power to govern or his forced servility to yield.

A Quote by David Oman McKay on adversity, destruction, time, and yielding

One time or another we all face adversity's chilling wind. One man flees from it, and like an unresisting kite falls to the ground. Another yields no retreating inch, and the wind that would destroy him lifts him as readily to the heights. We are not measured by the trials we meet, only by those we overcome.

A Quote by David Oman McKay on admiration, books, daughters, destruction, family, health, honor, immortality, influence, mankind, motherhood, painting, sons, soul, and world

The noblest calling in the world is that of mother. True motherhood is the most beautiful of all arts, the greatest of all professions. She who can paint a masterpiece or who can write a book that will influence millions deserves the plaudits and admiration of mankind; but she who rears successfully a family of healthy, beautiful sons and daughters whose immortal souls will be exerting an influence throughout the ages long after painting shall have faded, and books and statues shall have been destroyed, deserves the highest honor that man can give.
