Some random quotes from my reading over the weekend:
"The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little" Franklin D. Roosevelt
I wish every Tea Party member and every cold hearted conservative Republican who would choose to let the poor starve and those in medical need suffer meditate on those words. Especially those who go to church every Sunday and call themselves good Christians.
"Liberalism is trust of the people tempered by prudence. Conservatism is distrust of the people tempered by fear." William Gladstone
How true this is. A "me first and the hell with everyone else" is an attitude based in fear and selfishness.
Winston Churchill said about Clement Attlee: "A sheep dressed in sheep's clothing"
Ann Richards said about George Bush: "He was born with a silver foot in his mouth"
Mark Twain said: "Familiarity breeds contempt – and children."
