A Quote by Eleanor Roosevelt on nationality, religion, and faith

The important thing is neither your nationality nor the religion you professed, but how your faith translated itself in your life.

A Quote by Walter Russell on wealth, business, money, balance, universe, nationality, universal, law, goodwill, love, world, personal, relationship, disaster, and might

In the business world, unwise men take more that they give. They do not realize that they are breaking the Universal Law which will eventually break them to an equal extent. It may not be balanced in the form of dollars and cents but in the loss of good-will upon which their future business depends.
Man’s ignorance of the Law of Love in personal and world relationships will not serve as an excuse to save him from disaster. Wealth cannot be acquired from others by might, for wealth thus taken will impoverish him who takes anything which is not given. Nor can power be thus acquired, for the weakness of the despoiled will prevail against the might of the despoiler.
Everywhere in the world this law is seen working out its inexorable certainty. Empires built by might are dissolving. Rich world treasuries are disgorging their gold and piling up debt. The blood of every man killed by the sword has been paid for by ten – perchance ten times ten – of those who killed. Nations which have fattened on the food taken from others are starving amid the ruins of palaces in which they feasted.
A new world – one world – cannot grow out of a universe built on the foundations of hate and fear by unbalanced taking.
A new world must have new foundations. An eternal foundation is not built as one whole – it is built lovingly stone by stone. Thus must man rebuild his world.

Walter Russell

A Quote by Robert Chase on action, cruelty, discovery, judgment, nationality, needs, people, world, and writing

I have discovered that this world is harsh, cruel and nasty enough without writing off entire classes of individuals on the basis of their colour or national origin. There are enough people in the world who can be judged on the basis of their actions that we don't need to judge others merely on the basis of their colour or nationality.

A Quote by Marsilio Ficino on nationality, nature, people, poverty, and time

[Nature said] The sea shall disjoin the people [of England] from others, and knit them to a fierce nationality. It shall give them markets on every side. Long time I will keep them on their feet, by poverty, border-wars . . . seafaring . . .

A Quote by J. (Jiddu) Krishnamurti on belief, christianity, concern, country, islam, mankind, nationality, politics, religion, rest, separation, traditions, trying, understanding, and violence

When you call yourself an Indian or a Muslim or a Christian or a European, or anything else, you are being violent. Do you see why it is violent? Because you are separating yourself from the rest of mankind. When you separate yourself by belief, by nationality, by tradition, it breeds violence. So a man who is trying to understand violence does not belong to any country, to any religion, to any political party or partial system; he is concerned with the total understanding of mankind.

A Quote by Harry S. Truman on action, animals, direction, good, nationality, people, thought, and trust

The human animal cannot be trusted for anything good except en masse. The combined thought and action of the whole people of any race, creed or nationality, will always point in the right direction.

Harry Truman (1884 - 1972)

A Quote by Hamet Doerr on belief, friendship, good, language, nationality, and separation

Don Ricardo Evertom, said the priest, has left footprints in this soil that neither rain nor wind can scrap away. Nationality and language do not separate friends. . . . It makes no difference what a man believes if he is a good person.
