A Quote by Claude Frédéric Bastiat on achievement, design, dignity, doubt, god, humanity, influence, justice, laws, liberty, mankind, peace, progress, responsibility, safety, stability, and worth

Law is justice. And it is under the law of justice - under the reign of right; under the influence of liberty, safety, stability, and responsibility - that every person will attain his real worth and the true dignity of his being. It is only under this law of justice that mankind will achieve - slowly, no doubt, but certainly - God's design for the orderly and peaceful progress of humanity.

If you ask him: "What is silence?" he will answer, "It is the Great Mystery! The holy silence is His voice!" If you ask: "What are the fruits of silence?" he will say: "They are self-control, true courage or endurance, patience, dignity, and reverence. Silence is the cornerstone of character."

A Quote by Carolyn Leigh on children, dignity, home, joy, justice, learning, peace, preparation, promises, schools, and seriousness

I won't grow up I don't want to go to school Just to learn to be a parrot and recite a silly rule. If growing up means it would be beneath my dignity to climb a tree I'll never grow up, never grow up, never grow uuuuuuup, not me. I won't grow up I don't want to wear a tie and a serious expression in the middle of July. And if it means I must prepare to shoulder burdens with a worried air I'll never grow up, never grow up, never grow uuuuuuup, so there. Never gonna be a man, I won't Like to see somebody try and make me Anyone who wants to try and make me turn into a man, catch me if you can! I won't grow up not a peny will I pinch I will never grow a mustache or a fraction of an inch Cause growing up is awfuller than all the awful things that ever were I'll never grow up, never, grow up, never grow uuuuuuup, no sir! I won't grow up I will never even try I will do what Peter tells me and I'll never ask him why I won't grow up no, I promise that I won't I will stay a kid forever and be banished if I don't And Neverland will always be the home of peace and joy and librety I'll never grow up, never grow up, never grow uuuuuuuup, not me!

A Quote by Blaise Pascal on dignity, government, thought, universe, and world

It is not from space that I must seek my dignity, but from the government of my thought. I shall have no more if I possess worlds. By space the universe encompasses and swallows me up like an atom; by thought I comprehend the world.

Blaise Pascal (1623 - 1662)
