A Quote by Francis B. Sayre on defense, fighting, force, history, human rights, humanity, power, selfishness, and struggle

History down through the centuries has proved again and again that there can be but one outcome to a struggle for selfish power against forces fighting to protect and advance human rights. Those genuinely serving humanity always ultimately emerge triumphant. It is under their standards that the [Western] allies choose to throw in their lot for humanity's defense.

A Quote by David Oman McKay on abuse, adultery, chance, character, choice, commitment, divinity, effort, evil, extremism, good, greed, heart, human rights, jesus, men, misery, murder, nobility, perfection, theft, thinking, thought, vices, and world

That from the heart come good thoughts and bad thoughts is the message of the Savior. By the right choice, and through application of thought, man ascends to divine perfection; by the abuse and wrong application of thought, he descends below the level of the beasts. Between these two extremes are all the grades of character and man in their maker and master. Jesus taught that from within the heart of man come evil thoughts, sexual vice, acts of theft, murder, adultery, greed. When men commit these crimes individually or collectively, they trespass upon human rights and, of course, bring misery into the world. A noble and godlike character is no thing of favor or chance, but is a natural result of continued effort and right thinking, the effect of long cherished associations with godlike thoughts.

A Quote by Barbara Pierce Bush on conservatism, human rights, liberals, and people

I'm a liberal when it comes to human rights, the poor; so's George Bush. . . . But Liberal and Conservative don't mean much to me anymore. Does that mean we care about people and are interested and want to help? And if that makes you a Liberal, so be it.

Barbara Bush (1925 -)
