liberals

A Quote by Delbert L. Stapley on age, belief, body, challenge, character, christ, church, day, divinity, evolution, faith, fatherhood, foolishness, god, indifference, liberals, life, men, sons, spirit, spirituality, truth, and elightenment

In this day of modern liberalism when revealed truth is so frequently questioned and the decrees of God challenged, we, members of the Church, cannot afford to be carried away by the philosophies and sophistries of men's teachings and become complacent and indifferent to such inroads on our faith in divine and spiritual things. Advocates in these fields of man's speculations frequently consider gospel teachings childish-therefore foolish and unsuited for this enlightened age in which we live. Regardless of man's claims to the contrary, God is still God; Christ is His son-His Only Begotten Son in the flesh. He is in the express image of His Father's person, and is our Redeemer, Savior, Lord, and King. The scriptures teach us that we are descended from the lineage of the Gods; therefore, we are created in their likeness and image, in both spirit and body, and we are endowed with like character traits, qualities, and powers. We are not the product of evolution from some lower organism of life as man speculates and would have us believe.

A Quote by Daniel Patrick Moynihan on birth, good, government, health, liberals, and skepticism

Somehow liberals have been unable to acquire from birth what conservatives seem to be endowed with at birth: namely, a healthy skepticism of the powers of government to do good.

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 -)

A Quote by Anton Pavlovich Chekhov on art, conservatism, determination, god, liberals, people, regret, and strength

The people I am afraid of are the ones who look for tendentiousness between the lines and are determined to see me as either liberal or conservative. I am neither liberal, nor conservative, nor gradualist, nor monk, nor indifferentist. I would like to be a free artist and nothing else, and I regret God has not given me the strength to be one.

A Quote by Alvan Macauley on jobs, liberals, love, men, satisfaction, and service

The conception of perfect service is constantly expanding and must be handled by broad and liberal minded men who put equity and fairness above gain-who put a proper valuation upon a satisfied customer as an asset running into the thousands of dollars, and who love a job thoroughly well done and get a kick out of doing it.
