Quote of the Day
Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly. I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be. This is the interrelated structure of reality.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
I can forgive, but I cannot forget, is only another way of saying, I will not forgive. Forgiveness ought to be like a cancelled note - torn in two, and burned up, so that it never can be shown against one.
Henry Ward Beecher
The probability that we may fail in the struggle ought not to deter us from the support of a cause we believe to be just.
One ought never to turn one's back on a threatened danger and try to run away from it. If you do that, you will double the danger. But if you meet it promptly and without flinching, you will reduce the danger by half. Never run away from anything. Never!
No government ought to be without censors; and where the press is free no one ever will.
True friendship ought never to conceal what it thinks.
Interdependence is and ought to be as much the ideal of man as self-sufficiency. Man is a social being.
So confident am I in the intentions, as well as wisdom, of the government, that I shall always be satisfied that what is not done, either cannot, or ought not to be done.
The trouble with censors is that they worry if a girl has cleavage. They ought to worry if she hasn't any.
One ought to hold on to one's heart; for if one lets it go, one soon loses control of the head too.
Every man is a consumer, and ought to be a producer. He is by constitution expensive, and needs to be rich.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Even when laws have been written down, they ought not always to remain unaltered.
The 1928 Republican Convention opened with a prayer. If the Lord can see His way clear to bless the Republican Party the way it's been carrying on, then the rest of us ought to get it without even asking.
One who is injured ought not to return the injury, for on no account can it be right to do an injustice; and it is not right to return an injury, or to do evil to any man, however much we have suffered from him.
I've always felt toward the slightest scene, even if all I had to do in a scene was just to come in and say, 'Hi,' that the people ought to get their money's worth and that this is an obligation of mine, to give them the best you can get from me.
If you like small government you need to work hard at having a strong national defense that is not so militant. Personal liberty is the purpose of government, to protect liberty - not to run your personal life, not to run the economy, and not to pretend that we can tell the world how they ought to live.
There ought to be one day - just one - when there is open season on senators.
The pursuit, even of the best things, ought to be calm and tranquil.
Marcus Tullius Cicero

Freedom consists not in doing what we like, but in having the right to do what we ought.
Pope John Paul II
There can be no greater error than to expect, or calculate, upon real favors from nation to nation. It is an illusion which experience must cure, which a just pride ought to discard.
