I speak of honor-your honor to God-your honor to country-your honor to self. I sincerely believe it to be the cure to most of our ills, both on a national or individual basis.

A Quote by Ezra Taft Benson on action, country, deception, economics, honor, individuality, politics, and responsibility

You must keep your honor! You can't speak for the country; you can do little about the national economy or actions of moral weaklings who excuse themselves with the expression, "That is politics; nor can you be responsible for deception in others. But you are responsible for yourself! There are no collective panaceas - only individual ones.

A Quote by Eric Hoffer on effort, eternity, existence, and individuality

There is a totalitarian regime inside every one of us. We are ruled by a ruthless politburo which sets our norms and drives us from one five-year plan to another. The autonomous individual who has to justify his existence by his own efforts is in eternal bondage to himself.

A Quote by Eric Hoffer on culture, dreams, individuality, past, society, and present

It is the individual only who is timeless. Societies, cultures, and civilizations - past and present - are often incomprehensible to outsiders, but the individual's hungers, anxieties, dreams, and preoccupations have remained unchanged through the millennia.

A Quote by Elihu Root on action, blindness, brothers, charity, control, country, desires, duty, feeling, government, happiness, individuality, judgment, life, love, nobility, people, popularity, prejudice, principles, progress, prosperity, reason, self-c

True love of country is not mere blind partisanship. It is regard for the people of one's country and all of them; it is a feeling of fellowship and brotherhood for all of them; it is a desire for the prosperity and happiness of all of them; it is kindly and considerate judgment toward all of them. The first duty of popular self-government is individual self-control. The essential condition of true progress is that it shall be based upon grounds of reason, and not prejudice. Lincoln's noble sentiment of charity for all and malice toward none was not a specific for the Civil War, but is a living principle of action.

A Quote by Anna Eleanor Roosevelt on individuality, life, and obligation

Remember always that you have not only the right to be an individual; you have an obligation to be one. You cannot make any useful contribution in life unless you do this.

A Quote by Elaine Cannon on action, contentment, fate, force, good, happiness, individuality, justice, kindness, life, mind, opportunity, thought, and time

There is a special kind of girl who goes where the action is, but only if the action is the right kind. . . . Who centers the happy storm about her, but doesn't stir up one. Who makes a mere event a happening. Who isn't content with contentment. Who doesn't fight the inevitable nor ignore opportunities-but who joins forces with time and fate and rises to every occasion. This special kind of girl knows that the way she moves, the way she speaks, the fragrance about her, and the good things she does mark the difference between herself and the girl who just doesn't really care enough about being a girl. This special kind of girl makes up her own mind after careful, prayerful thought. She sets her own image. She's tasteful, individual, exciting. She's worthwhile and a breath of sweet life.
