A Quote by W. J. Cameron on jobs, men, nations, and work

Dividing industry into "big" and "little" is artificial. Industry is both - that makes it Industry. Ninety-eight per cent of American industries employ less than 500 men each. Today's big industries were small within our lifetime, many of today's small industries will become big before our lifetime ends. Large industries make small industries necessary, and small industries make large ones possible. Wipe out large industries and you wipe out three-fourths of the small ones; wipe out the small ones and the large ones cannot go on. They work together. Each has a part in the nation's job.

A Quote by unknown on challenge, difficulty, envy, nations, problems, strength, struggle, and world

In a world of envy and struggle and animosity, the united nations will continue to be confronted with difficult problems. But as it faces and meets each challenge it gains strength. If it surmounts the challenges it faces today, it will be stronger tomorrow, and the more able to tackle and perhaps solve what appear now to be insurmountable problems.

A Quote by unknown on beauty, character, harmony, heart, home, nations, order, peace, and world

If there is righteousness in the heart, there will be beauty in the character. If there be beauty in the character, there will be harmony in the home. If there is harmony in the home, there will be order in the nation. When there is order in the nation, there will be peace in the world.

A Quote by unknown on achievement, men, nations, and strength

Nations and individuals alike must never look solely to outside sources for help. In addition, they must also look within themselves to tap a source of inner strength that can and does enable men and nations to achieve far beyond their ordinary capacities.

A Quote by unknown on beauty, blessings, christmas, confidence, courage, day, evil, faith, future, good, harmony, heart, hope, joy, lies, men, nations, peace, reason, seasons, spirit, strength, sympathy, understanding, victory, work, and world

Let us pray that strength and courage abundant be given to all who work for a world of reason and understanding, that the good that lies in every man's heart may day by day be magnified, that men will come to see more clearly not that which divides them, but that which unites them, that each hour may bring us closer to a final victory, not of nation over nation, but of man over his own evils and weaknesses, that the true spirit of this Christmas season - it's joy, its beauty, its hope, and above all its abiding faith - may live among us, that the blessings of peace be ours - the peace to build and grow, to live in harmony and sympathy with others, and to plan for the future with confidence.

A Quote by unknown on blessings, constitution, foolishness, god, inspiration, liberty, nations, obedience, repentance, sorrow, survival, and trust

To trust in the arm of flesh is foolishness; to suppose that we are self-sufficient is naive. This nation will survive and prosper only as God permits it to do so, and his permission rests upon our obedience to him and his gospel. He brought forth this nation. He gave us our liberty. He inspired our federal constitution. But it is for us to preserve these priceless blessings by our repentance and obedience to God. Our sins and haughty attitudes can only bring us sorrow.

A Quote by Umberto Eco on conflict, consequences, day, justice, nations, paradise, population, religion, and terrorism

Terrorism [is] a biological consequence of the multinationals, just as a day of fever is the reasonable price of an effective vaccine . . . The conflict is between great powers, not between demons and heroes. Unhappily, therefore, is the nation that finds the "heroes" underfoot, especially if they still think in religious terms and involve the population in their bloody ascent to an uninhabited paradise.

Umberto Eco (1932 -)
