A Quote by Patrick Jake "P.J." O'Rourke on america, constitution, country, justice, order, people, reason, television, and welfare

The preamble to the Constitution states: "We, the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquillity, provide for the common defence, promote the general welfare..." It doesn't say "guarantee the general welfare." And it certainly doesn't say "give welfare benefits to all the people in the country who aren't doing so well even if the reason they aren't doing so well is because they're sitting on their butts in front of the TV.

P.J. O'Rourke (1947 -)

A Quote by Marion G. Romney on finance, problems, spirituality, and welfare

The whole problem is spirituality--not finances. Spiritually strong = welfare strong.

A Quote by Lewis Schwellenbach on laws, mankind, nature, progress, security, society, and welfare

Every right has its responsibilities. Like the right itself, these responsibilities stem from no man-made law, but from the very nature of man and society. The security, progress and welfare of one group is measured finally in the security, progress and welfare of all mankind.

A Quote by Jonathan Edwards on cities, community, concern, good, privacy, society, spirit, and welfare

A man of a right spirit is not a man of narrow and private views, but is greatly interested and concerned for the good of the community to which he belongs, and particularly of the city or village in which he resides, and for the true welfare of the society of which he is a member.

Our feelings towards the world of mankind, generally, ought to be the same as Jesus manifested to them.

A Quote by John Fitzgerald Kennedy on disability, family, goals, health, integrity, problems, welfare, and world

The goals of our public welfare program must be positive and constructive. [The welfare program] must stress the integrity and preservation of the family unit. It must contribute to the attack on dependency, juvenile delinquency, family breakdown, illegitimacy, ill health, and disability. It must reduce the incidence of these problems, prevent their occurrence and recurrence, and strengthen and protect the vulnerable in a highly competitive world.

A Quote by J. B. Hill on authority, belief, business, children, control, correction, direction, evil, existence, facts, faults, government, life, mankind, taxes, and welfare

Believe, if you will, that there may have been faults in our industrial system, yet the fact remains that the welfare of the average man has not so far advanced under any other form of government, and that whatever evil exists will not be corrected by delegating to government, with all its weaknesses, the authority to run and control all business and to control the daily lives and activities of laboring mankind. Nor will any existing waste and extravagance of government be eliminated or appreciably diminished until the average man realizes that the burden of paying its bills will, through direct or indirect taxation, ultimately fall upon him, his children or his children's children.

A Quote by Henry Ford II on cooperation, family, good, nations, people, society, spirit, and welfare

No society of nations, no people within a nation, no family can benefit through mutual aid unless good will exceeds ill will; unless the spirit of cooperation surpasses antagonism; unless we all see and act as though the other man's welfare determines our own welfare.

A Quote by Henry D. Moyle on aim, church, debt, earth, independence, labor, time, welfare, and work

Our ultimate aim in this welfare work is to help Church members to become self-supporting, and to obtain work they can do best. The Church, with its members independent and free from debt, with time to labor in the ministry, can then successfully carry on the work of the Lord here on earth.

A Quote by Heber J. Grant on embarrassment, family, feeling, service, shame, spirituality, welfare, and work

No pains must be spared to wipe out all feeling of diffidence, embarrassment, or shame on the part of those receiving relief; [we] must be one great family of equals. The spiritual welfare of those on relief must receive especial care and be earnestly and prayerfully fostered. A system which gives relief for work or service will go far to reaching these ends.

Heber J. Grant (1856 - 1945)
