War

"Give me the money that has been spent in war, and I will purchase every foot of land upon the globe. I will clothe every man, woman and child in an attire of which kings and queens would be proud. I will build a school house on every hillside, and in every valley over the whole earth; I will build an academy in every town, and endow it: a college in every state, and fill it with able professors; I will crown every hill with a place of worship, consecrated to the promulgation of the gospel of peace; I will support in every pulpit an able teacher of righteousness, so that on every Sabbath morning the chime on one hill should answer to the chime on another round the earth's wide circumference; and the voice of prayer, the song of praise, shall ascend like an universal holocaust to heaven." - Henry Richard

War

O war ... begot in pride and luxury,
The child of malice and revengeful hate;
Thou impious good, and good impiety!
Thou art the foul refiner of a state.
- Daniels

The World Outside Us

"We may privately prefer beech trees to cedars, this type of character to that, and have our private evaluations of what a worthy life really is. But these things, eminently useful as they are to us as individuals and to our necessary illusions, are of small importance to the world outside us." E.F. Sharpe

Effect

"Keep alert to the effects of distortion and circularity and use your language with precision and delicacy." - J. McCay

Abundance

"Not what we have, but what we enjoy, constitutes our abundance." - Anonymous

World Economics

"The financial problems we all face are now bigger than the U.S. government can handle. The problems have not been solved and are now becoming global problems, beyond the borders of our country and beyond the control of political leaders." - R.T. Kiyosaki
