Neil deGrasse Tyson
We have no middle ground, no foggy gray area where we can sin a little without suffering spiritual decline. That is why we must repent and come to Christ daily on submissive knees so that we can prevent our bonfires of testimony from being snuffed out by sin.
Joseph B. Wirthlin

John Henrik Clarke
Wal-Mart's size and scale is so vast they literally have the ability to change the face of the entire country.

As parents, we need to send our kids back to 'old-fashioned' outdoor summer camps, which have been on the decline as the demand for sports and academics-based camps has risen. We need to fight budget cuts to public parks programs and resist closures of public swimming pools and playgrounds.
John F. Kennedy
