A Quote by Ezra Taft Benson on circumstances, crisis, economics, future, learning, needs, preparation, principles, reason, self-reliance, spirituality, unemployment, and welfare

More than ever before, we need to learn and apply the principles of economic self-reliance. We do not know when the crisis involving sickness or unemployment may affect our own circumstances. We do know that the Lord has decreed global calamities for the future and has warned and forewarned us to be prepared. For this reason the Brethren have repeatedly stressed a 'back to basics' program for temporal and spiritual welfare.

Ezra Taft Benson (1899 - 1994)

A Quote by Earl O. Shreve on agriculture, boldness, discovery, effort, future, government, labor, lies, miracles, optimism, progress, promises, science, technology, war, welfare, and world

Despite world unrest, the frontiers of the future lie invitingly before us. They stretch to fabulous horizons of scientific and technological discovery-all holding promise of contribution to the national welfare. But these frontiers of tomorrow call for bold enterprise-for optimism, for the united effort of industry, labor, agriculture and government. In the mounting miracles of science, in the rapid advances of technology, lie the foundations for almost countless new industries and for far swifter social progress. This promise of progress is daily taking more definite shape and clearer form, as it shakes free of the post-war mists.

A Quote by Dr. Harold Stonier on day, future, individuality, promises, responsibility, security, and welfare

With all its alluring promise that some one else will guarantee for the rainy day, social security can never replace the program that man's future welfare is, after all, a matter of individual responsibility.

A Quote by Claude Frédéric Bastiat on cities, individuality, learning, nations, people, trouble, welfare, wishes, and world

If you wish to prosper, let your customer prosper. When people have learned this lesson, everyone will seek his individual welfare in the general welfare. Then jealousies between man and man, city and city, province and province, nation and nation, will no longer trouble the world.

The tyranny of a prince in an oligarchy is not so dangerous to the public welfare as the apathy of a citizen in a democracy.
