A Quote by Henry David Thoreau on character, determination, family, men, pity, silence, and support

We falsely attribute to men a determined character - putting together all their yesterdays - and averaging them - we presume we know them. Pity the man who has character to support - it is worse than a large family - he is the silent poor indeed.

A Quote by Stephen Grover Cleveland on government, people, and support

The lessons of paternalism ought to be unlearned and the better lesson taught that while the people should patriotically and cheerfully support their government, its functions do not include the support of the people.

A Quote by Fred Allen on achievement, dependence, goals, love, privacy, sharing, support, and world

It is probably not love that makes the world go around, but rather those mutually supportive alliances through which partners recognize their dependence on each other for the achievement of shared and private goals.

A Quote by Francis Vincent "Frank" Zappa, Jr. on belief, existence, facts, people, support, variety, virtue, and world

Fact of the matter is, there is no hip world, there is no straight world. There's a world, you see, which has people in it who believe in a variety of different things. Everybody believes in something and everybody, by virtue of the fact that they believe in something, use that something to support their own existence.

A Quote by Ezra Taft Benson on courage, fatherhood, government, nations, opposites, people, philosophy, simplicity, and support

That government is best which governs the least, so taught the courageous founders of this nation. This simple declaration is diametrically opposed to the all too common philosophy that the government should protect and support one from the cradle to the grave. The policy of the Founding Fathers has made our people and our nation strong. The opposite leads inevitably to moral decay.
