A Quote by Theodore Roethke on bitterness, force, sons, ugliness, and universe

Long live the weeds that overwhelm My narrow vegetable realm! The bitter rock, the barren soil That force the son of man to toil; All things unholy, marred by curse, The ugly of the universe.

Theodore Roethke (1908 - 1963)

A Quote by Theodore H. White on force, leadership, people, power, and responsibility

Whether a man is burdened by power or enjoys power; whether he is trapped by responsibility or made free by it; whether he is moved by other people and outer forces or moves them - this is of the essence of leadership.

Theodore H. White (1915 - 1986)

A Quote by Tenche Coxe on citizenship, country, duty, force, military, people, power, and privacy

As civil rulers, not having their duty to the people duly before them, may attempt to tyrannize, and as the military forces which must be occasionally raised to defend our country, might pervert their power to the injury of their fellow-citizens, the people are confirmed by the next article in their right to keep and bear their private arms.

Tenche Coxe (1638 - 1896)

A Quote by Susan Faludi on culture, feminism, force, happiness, identity, justice, men, privacy, time, and women

Feminism's agenda is basic: it asks that women not be forced to "choose" between public justice and private happiness. It asks that women be free to define themselves--instead of having their identity defined for them, time and again, by their culture and their men.

Susan Faludi (1959 -)

A Quote by Supreme Court on congress, errors, finance, force, government, laws, possessions, problems, solution, taxes, and present

By forcing state governments to absorb the financial burden of implementing a federal regulatory program, Members of Congress can take credit for "solving" problems without having to ask their constituents to pay for the solutions with higher federal taxes. And even when the States are not forced to absorb the costs of implementing a federal program, they are still put in the position of taking the blame for its burdensomeness and for its defects....Under the present law, for example, it will be the [law enforcement official] and not some federal official who stands between the gun purchaser and immediate possession of his gun. And it will likely be the [law enforcement official], not some federal official, who will be blamed for any error.

A Quote by Sumner Welles on appreciation, blindness, conviction, cooperation, force, goals, god, religion, truth, and words

There are few of us so blind as not to realize that unless the moral force of religious conviction impels, the goal of truth and lasting international cooperation cannot be attained; there are few of us who do not appreciate the vital truth of the words, "If God does not build the house, those who build it build in vain."

A Quote by Sparky Anderson on baseball, force, good, justice, managers, mind, respect, rules, simplicity, success, and talent

Baseball is a simple game. If you have good players, and you keep them in the right frame of mind, the manager is a success. The players make the manager. It's never the other way. Managing is not running, hitting, or stealing. Managing is getting your players to put out one hundred percent year after year. A player does not have to like a manager and he does not have to respect a manager. All he has to do is obey the rules. Talent is one thing. Being able to go from spring to October is another. You just got caught in a position where you have no position. [Explaining why he was forced to cut a utility player]
