A Quote by General Omar Nelson Bradley on america, dedication, faith, fear, food, fraud, hope, hunger, justice, nations, power, struggle, suspicion, trust, and world

It is to the United States that all freemen look for the light and the hope of the world. Unless we dedicate ourselves completely to this struggle, unless we combat hunger with food, fear with trust, suspicion with faith, fraud with justice - and threats with power, nations will surrender to the futility, the hopelessness, the panic on which wars feed.

A Quote by Dr. Joost A. M. Meerloo, MD on citizenship, country, eternity, order, people, politics, problems, rest, suspicion, tears, trust, and weakness

Political demagoguery is, to some extent, a problem in our country. The particular form this demagoguery takes is only a passing phase, and when our current dragons and inner phantoms have been laid to rest, the eternal demagogue will arise anew. He will accuse others of conspiracy in order to prove his own importance. He will try to intimidate those who are neither so iron-fisted nor so hotheaded as he, and temporarily he will drag some people into the web of his delusions. Perhaps he will even wear a mantle of martyrdom to arouse the tears of the weak-hearted. With his emotionalism and suspicion, he will shatter the trust of citizens in one another.

A Quote by John Burdon Sanderson Haldane on doubt, future, imagination, reality, suspicion, and universe

I have no doubt that in reality the future will be vastly more surprising than anything I can imagine. Now my own suspicion is that the universe is not only queerer than we suppose, but queerer than we can suppose.

A Quote by Jane Porter on abuse, pleasure, suspicion, and women

I never yet heard man or woman much abused that I was not inclined to think the better of them, and to transfer the suspicion or dislike to the one who found pleasure in pointing out the defects of another.

A Quote by Hosea Ballou on enemies, friendship, happiness, injustice, justice, suspicion, and virtue

Suspicion is far more apt to be wrong than right; oftener unjust than just. It is no friend to virtue, and always an enemy to happiness.
