A Quote by General Dwight David Eisenhower on conviction, dignity, faith, generations, home, inspiration, labor, men, men and women, problems, responsibility, wilderness, and women

Men and women, inspired by faith in man's dignity, goaded by conviction in man's responsibility, labored that this land might be a better home for those who followed them. Because every American generation attacked its problems with fresh vigor, we have peopled a continent, subdued its prairies and wilderness, tamed its rivers and devoted its resources to the betterment of those who dwell in it.

Dwight Eisenhower (1890 - 1969)

A Quote by Dr. Benjamin Fine on children, force, home, opportunity, schools, and time

A child should not be forced to be busy all the time. Let's take away the tremendous pressures we place on our children, both in school and at home. Give the child an opportunity to sit back and daydream once in a while.

A Quote by Diane E. Bilderback on family, garden, home, mountains, and plants

Amazingly enough, almost all the fruits grown in home gardens, from strawberries to apricots, are members of the same plant family, Rosaceae, along with such decorative favorites as roses, mountain ash, flowering quince. . . . Worldwide, there are about 3,400 members of this very ancient plant group, which exhibit primitive characteristics.

A Quote by David Herbert Lawrence on home and war

in

The peasants of Sicily, who have kept their own wheat and make their own natural brown bread, ah, it is amazing how fresh and sweet and clean their loaf seems, so perfumed, as home-made bread used all to be before the war.

A Quote by David Popenoe on family, heart, home, lies, parenthood, and problems

The American family is not simply changing; it is getting weaker. . . . Family decline drives some of our most urgent social problems. . . . The heart of the family problem lies in the steady breakup of the two-parent home.

A Quote by David Oman McKay on church, dreams, god, goodness, happiness, heaven, home, love, optimism, thankfulness, wishes, words, and world

I feel grateful and happy this morning for so many evidences of the goodness of the Lord that I wish I could strike a note of optimism that would reverberate to the uttermost parts of the Church. In the words of Frank L. Stanton: "This world o' God's is brighter Than we ever dream or know; Its burdens growin' lighter-- An' it's Love that makes 'em so! An' I'm thankful that I'm livin' Where Love's blessedness I see, 'Neath a Heaven that's forgivin' Where the bells ring 'Home' to me!"
