A Quote by Thomas Morell on diligence, god, heart, laws, love, and soul

But take diligent heed to do the commandment and the law, which Moses the servant of the LORD charged you, to love the LORD your God, and to walk in all his ways, and to keep his commandments, and to cleave unto him, and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul.

A Quote by Thomas Jefferson on death, laws, nature, order, and punishment

It is not only vain, but wicked, in a legislator to frame laws in opposition to the laws of nature, and to arm them with the terrors of death. This is truly creating crimes in order to punish them.

A Quote by Thomas Jefferson on citizenship, duty, laws, nations, and obedience

Certainly one of the highest duties of the citizen is a scrupulous obedience to the laws of the nation. But it is not the highest duty.

A Quote by Thomas Jefferson on assumptions, earth, god, laws, mankind, nature, people, politics, respect, and separation

When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

A Quote by Thomas Jefferson on books, commitment, confidence, determination, and laws

Jefferson's "Commonplace Book," 1774-1776 Laws that forbid the carrying of arms . . . disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. . . . Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve, rather, to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.

A Quote by Thomas Alva Edison on existence, facts, intelligence, laws, and world

I know this world is ruled by Infinite Intelligence. It required Infinite Intelligence to create it and it requires Infinite Intelligence to keep it on its course. Everything that surrounds us - everything that exists - proves that there are Infinite Laws behind it. There can be no denying this fact. It is mathematical in its precision.

A Quote by Theodore Roosevelt on anger, country, growth, laws, lawyers, learning, lies, spirit, and talent

The great lawyer who employs his talent and his learning in the highly emunerative task of enabling a very wealthy client to override or circumvent the law is doing all that in him lies to encourage the growth in the country of a spirit of dumb anger against all laws and of disbelief in their efficacy.

A Quote by Theodore Roosevelt on exercise, intelligence, laws, success, and work

There never has been devised, and there never will be devised, any law which will enable a man to succeed save by the exercise of those qualities which have always been the prerequisites of success - the qualities of hard work, of keen intelligence, of unflinching will.

A Quote by Theodore Roosevelt on laws and obedience

No man is above the law and no man below it; nor do we ask any man's permission when we require him to obey it. Obedience to the law is demanded as a right; not asked as a favor.
