facts

A Quote by Alex McColl on character, facts, and theology

The fact that [someone is] an unattractive character with followers holding rather odd theology, does not mean that they have no civil, legal or constitutional rights. Calling such a group a "cult" should not deprive them of their rights.

Modern morality and manners suppress all natural instincts, keep people ignorant of the facts of nature and make them fighting drunk on bogey tales.

A Quote by Aldous Leonard Huxley on facts, nonsense, wisdom, and words

Facts are ventriloquists' dummies. Sitting on a wise man's knee they may be made to utter words of wisdom; elsewhere they say nothing, or talk nonsense, or indulge in sheer nonsense.

A Quote by Albert Szent-Gyorgyi de Nagyrapolt on facts, future, interest, investment, life, losing, mankind, military, money, necessity, needs, people, problems, purpose, simplicity, solution, soul, stability, universe, war, wishes, and world

Our nervous system developed for one sole purpose, to maintain our lives and satisfy our needs. All our reflexes serve this purpose. this makes us utterly egotistic. With rare exceptions people are really interested in one thing only: themselves. Everybody, by necessity, is the center of his own universe. When the human brain took its final shape, say, 100,000 years ago, problems and solutions must have been exceedingly simple. There were no long-range problems and man had to grab any immediate advantage. The world has changed but we are still willing to sell more distant vital interests for some minor immediate gains. Our military industrial complex, which endangers the future of mankind, to a great extent owes its stability to the fact that so may people depend on it for their living. This holds true for all of us, including myself. When I received the Nobel Prize, the only big lump sum of money I have ever seen, I had to do something with it. The easiest way to drop this hot potato was to invest it, to buy shares. I knew World War II was coming and I was afraid that if I had shares which rise in case of war, I would wish for war. So I asked my agent to buy shares which go down in the event of war. This he did. I lost my money and saved my soul.

A Quote by Albert N. Neibacker, D.D. on communism, facts, fatherhood, learning, men, peace, and war

When we pray "Our Father," I am praying for you, you are praying for me. In fact, if men everywhere would only learn to pray aright, "Our Father," there would be no differences to settle. It would not be long before Communist, imperialist, capitalist and what have you would stop their cold war and start to live at peace with one another.
