I have always considered that the substitution of the internal combustion engine for the horse marked a very gloomy milestone in the progress of mankind.

A Quote by Sir Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill on animals, decisions, destiny, duty, learning, mankind, time, and world

The destiny of mankind is not decided by material computation. When great causes are on the move in the world . . . we learn that we are spirits, not animals, and that something is going on in space and time, and beyond space and time, which, whether we like it or not, spells duty.

A Quote by William J. H. Boetcker on defeat, ingratitude, leadership, life, mankind, men, power, proof, and stupidity

The man who is worthy of being "a leader of men" will never complain about the stupidity of his helpers, the ingratitude of mankind nor the inappreciation of the public. These are all a part of the great game of life. To meet them and overcome them and not to go down before them in disgust, discouragement or defeat-that is the final proof of power.
