A Quote by John Milton on support


His spear, to equal which the tallest pine Hewn on Norwegian hills to be the mast Of some great ammiral were but a wand, He walk'd with to support uneasy steps Over the burning marle.

John Milton (1608 - 1674)

A Quote by John Haynes Holmes on economics, government, greed, leadership, peace, politics, popularity, promises, spirituality, support, and world

There must appear a spiritual and moral leadership rising above economic and political situations. Governments in both their domestic and foreign policies appeal for popular support by promises of material gain. We cannot make peace by mere appeal to greed. We must give the peoples of the world something to live for as well as something to live on.

John Haynes Holmes (1879 -)

A Quote by John Foster Dulles on belief, day, dreams, hope, nations, spirit, support, and world

I hope the day will never come when the American nation will be the champion of the status quo. Once that happens, we shall have forfeited, and rightly forfeited, the support of the unsatisfied, of those who are the victims of inevitable imperfections, of those who, young in years or spirit, believe that they can make a better world and of those who dream dreams and want to make their dreams to come true.

A Quote by John Fitzgerald Kennedy on friendship, liberty, nations, success, support, survival, and wishes

Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty.

A Quote by John Adams on citizenship, constitution, defense, direction, discretion, government, individuality, laws, liberty, military, privacy, and support

To suppose arms in the hands of citizens, to be used at individual discretion, except in private self-defense, or by partial orders of towns, countries or districts of a state, is to demolish every constitution, and lay the laws prostrate, so that liberty can be enjoyed by no man; it is a dissolution of the government. The fundamental law of the militia is, that it be created, directed and commanded by the laws, and ever for the support of the laws.

A Quote by John Adams on awareness, gloom, glory, god, posterity, support, trust, and worth

I am well aware of the Toil and Blood and Treasure, that it will cost us to maintain this Declaration, and support and defend these States.-Yet through all the Gloom I can see the Rays of ravishing Light and Glory. I can see that the End is more than worth all the Means. And that Posterity will triumph in that Days Transaction, even although We should rue it, which I trust in God We shall not.

A Quote by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe on anxiety, charity, confession, contentment, difficulty, faith, fear, future, god, good, grace, health, helpful, hope, love, needs, neighbors, patience, pleasure, strength, support, wealth, and work

nine keys to contentment Health enough to make work a pleasure. Wealth enough to support your needs. Strength enough to battle with difficulties and overcome them. Grace enough to confess your sins and forsake them. Patience enough to toil until some good is accomplished. Charity enough to see some good in your neighbors. Love enough to move you to be useful and helpful to others. Faith enough to make real things of God. Hope enough to remove all anxious fears concerning the future.

A Quote by Ahmad Ibn `Ata'Allah on devil, egotism, and support

Whenever there remains any support for the ego within, even if it be only an atom's weight, then you are pretentious and have a devil who leads you astray.

A Quote by Hugh Prather on clarity, friendship, mistakes, and support

Support your friends - even in their mistakes. But be clear, however, that it is the friend and not the mistake you are supporting.

A Quote by Henry Eyring on babies, errors, impatience, religion, support, and truth

Perhaps the believer never does more disservice to religion than to support the truth with bad arguments. The impatient listener, perceiving the obvious errors, often "throws out the baby with the bath" and turns away, even from true religion.
