A Quote by Albert Einstein on heart, lies, mankind, power, problems, solution, thinking, violence, regret, second thoughts, unintended consequences, nuclear weapons, bombs, and warfare

The release of atom power has changed everything except our way of thinking...  the solution to this problem lies in the heart of mankind.  If only I had known, I should have become a watchmaker.

Not until the creation and maintenance of decent conditions of life for all men are recognized and accepted as a common obligation of all men . . . shall we . . . be able to speak of mankind as civilized.

A Quote by Abigail Van Buren on brothers, clothes, dreams, education, freedom, hope, kindness, mankind, peace, people, sleep, and world

For many of us we are always wanting more - we would be happier if we had such and such. Maybe we should pause for a moment and hear what some people in the third world countries would like to make them happier. 1. Having enough to eat so when you go to sleep at night your stomach doesn't ach. 2. Having shoes on your feet and any kind of clothing to keep the cold out. 3. Having a roof over your head. 4. Having the hope that you'll be lucky enough to get some kind of an education. 5. Believing that the dream of freedom, brotherhood, and peace for all mankind will someday come true.

Abigail Van Buren (1918 -)

A Quote by A. W. Tozer on change, god, and mankind

When God would make His name known to mankind, He could find no better word than "I AM." "I am that I am," says God, "I change not." Everyone and everything else measures from that fixed point.

A Quote by A. H. Gray on anxiety, belief, body, contentment, depression, enemies, facts, fear, god, grace, heart, hunger, learning, love, mankind, needs, peace, people, poverty, power, secrets, strength, suffering, present, trust, truth, understanding, a

Unless the secret of inward peace is also the secret of escape from fear, it does not meet a need I believe is almost the central need of mankind. If it be asked, "Why are so many people in the modern world anxious, worried, nervous, irritable, depressed, bad sleepers, and not quite well?" the answer in most cases is that they are frightened. . . . What, then, is the way to escape from the power of this ever-present enemy? I know none except learning that we are in the keeping of a God who will never desert us. . . . There is no fear where love is, and the love of God is always present. . . . Till we have faced that fact, we are not ready to understand what God does actually for those who trust in Him. But when we have learnt that truth, we may go on to say, "Come what may, we know that He will be with us and therefore need not fear." We may have to suffer in the body, but His sustaining grace will never leave us. We may lose our dear ones and so be wounded in our very hearts, but His grace will give us strength to carry even that cross. We may have to face poverty; but if so, He will do for us what He has done for thousands and teach us how to be poor and yet content. We may have to face hunger of the heart, and no one who knows what that means will ever think lightly of it; but even through that fiery trial, His love will sustain those who turn to Him.
