sacrifice

A Quote by Wendell Lewis Willkie on america, destruction, judaism, liberty, life, men, men and women, patience, sacrifice, and women

Our way of living together in America is a strong but delicate fabric. It is made up of many threads. It has been woven over many centuries by the patience and sacrifice of countless liberty-loving men and women. It serves as a cloak for the protection of poor and rich, of black and white, of Jew and Gentile, of foreign and native born. Let us not tear it asunder. For no man knows, once it is destroyed, where or when man will find its protective warmth again.

Wendell Lewis Willkie (1892 - 1944)

A Quote by Walter Lippmann on achievement, authority, cleverness, cynicism, destruction, duty, freedom, heroism, indifference, liberty, life, men, order, preparation, sacrifice, spirit, thought, tragedy, weakness, world, and elightenment

Without order or authority in the spirit of man the free way of life leads through weakness, disorganization, self-indulgence, and moral indifference to the destruction of freedom itself. The tragic ordeal through which the Western world is passing was prepared in the long period of easy liberty, during which men . . . forgot that their freedom was achieved by heroic sacrifice. . . . They forgot that their rights were founded on their duties. . . . They thought it clever to be cynical, enlightened to be unbelieving, and sensible to be soft.

A Quote by Walter Lippmann on courage, duty, fulfillment, good, heroism, honesty, hope, inspiration, life, men, sacrifice, and wishes

Upon the standard to which the wise and honest will now repair it is written: You have lived the easy way; henceforth, you will live the hard way. . . . You came into a great heritage made by the insight and the sweat and the blood of inspired and devoted and courageous men; thoughtlessly and in utmost self-indulgence you have all but squandered this inheritance. Now only by the heroic virtues which made this inheritance, can you restore it again. You took the good things for granted. Now you must earn them again. . . . For every right that you cherish, you have a duty which you must fulfill. For every hope that you entertain, you have a task that you must perform. For every good that you wish to preserve, you will have to sacrifice your comfort and your ease. There is nothing for nothing any longer.

Walter Lippmann (1889 - 1974)

A Quote by unknown on achievement, appreciation, dreams, greatness, history, imagination, men, men and women, perseverance, sacrifice, women, and work

I think that you appreciate that there are extraordinary men and women, and extraordinary moments when history leaps forward on the backs of these individuals. That what can be imagined, can be achieved. That you must dare to dream, but that there is no substitute for perseverance and hard work, and team work, because no one gets there alone. And that while we commemorate the greatness of these events and the individuals who achieve them, we cannot forget the sacrifice of those who make these achievements and leaps possible.
