A Quote by David Lawrence Dewey on belief, history, inspiration, mankind, time, and understanding

Through the sands of time . . . the written word has changed the course of history, inspired many to fight for their beliefs and most importantly . . . elevated mankind to a higher understanding of man's inhumanity to mankind.

A Quote by Daniel Webster on heart, history, judgment, needs, past, security, and world

I shall enter on no encomium upon Massachusetts; she needs none. There she is. Behold her, and judge for yourselves. There is her history; the world knows it by heart. The past, at least, is secure. There is Boston and Concord and Lexington and Bunker Hill; and there they will remain forever.

There is a spirit and a need and a man at the beginning of every great human advance. Every one of these must be right for that particular moment of history, or nothing happens.

A Quote by Cory Evangeline Booth on army, colors, god, history, poverty, salvation, service, and suffering

Hardship, unbelief, suffering and poverty have not stopped our soldiery from rendering their service to God and man. The Salvation Army is a great empire, an empire without a frontier made up of a tangle of races, tongues and colors such as never before in all history gathered together under one flag.

A Quote by Claude Gernade Bowers on conformity, history, mistakes, and past

History is the torch that is meant to illuminate the past, to guard us against the repetition of our mistakes of other days. We cannot join in the rewriting of history to make it conform to our comfort and convenience.

A Quote by Claude Frédéric Bastiat on danger, force, history, labor, laws, men, morality, pain, power, punishment, purpose, religion, and work

Now since man is naturally inclined to avoid pain - and since labor is pain in itself - it follows that men will resort to plunder whenever plunder is easier than work. History shows this quite clearly. And under these conditions, neither religion nor morality can stop it. When, then, does plunder stop? It stops when it becomes more painful and more dangerous than labor. It is evident, then, that the proper purpose of law is to use the power of its collective force to stop this fatal tendency to plunder instead of to work. All the measures of the law should protect property and punish plunder.
