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 nuclear war is going to be the last nuclear - the last war, frankly, if it really gets out of hand. And I just don't think we ought to be prepared to accept that sort of thing.
The truth is that all men having power ought to be mistrusted.
I think there ought to be a strict separation or wall built between our religious faith and our practice of political authority in office. I don't think the President of the United States should extoll Christianity if he happens to be a Christian at the expense of Judaism, Islam or other faiths.
Love may be or it may not, but where it is, it ought to reveal itself in its immensity.
Honore de Balzac
Consumption is the sole end and purpose of all production; and the interest of the producer ought to be attended to, only so far as it may be necessary for promoting that of the consumer.
A scientific man ought to have no wishes, no affections, - a mere heart of stone.
Since we cannot know all that there is to be known about anything, we ought to know a little about everything.
Most of us don't mind doing what we ought to do when it doesn't interfere with what we want to do, but it takes discipline and maturity to do what we ought to do whether we want to or not.
Joseph B. Wirthlin
Women ought to have representatives, instead of being arbitrarily governed without any direct share allowed them in the deliberations of government.
Statistics suggest that when customers complain, business owners and managers ought to get excited about it. The complaining customer represents a huge opportunity for more business.
We ought to get out of the judging business. We should leave it up to God to determine who belongs in one arena or another when it comes to eternity. What we are obligated to do is to tell people about Jesus, and that's what I do.
Let us not listen to those who think we ought to be angry with our enemies, and who believe this to be great and manly. Nothing is so praiseworthy, nothing so clearly shows a great and noble soul, as clemency and readiness to forgive.
Marcus Tullius Cicero
Hurricane Katrina overwhelmed levees and exploded the conventional wisdom about a shared American prosperity, exposing a group of people so poor they didn't have $50 for a bus ticket out of town.

Michael Eric Dyson
Knowledge without justice ought to be called cunning rather than wisdom.
Politics ought to be the part-time profession of every citizen who would protect the rights and privileges of free people and who would preserve what is good and fruitful in our national heritage.

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!
If your treat an individual... as if he were what he ought to be and could be, he will become what he ought to be and could be.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Lyndon B. Johnson

I think that in the discussion of natural problems we ought to begin not with the Scriptures, but with experiments, and demonstrations.
I love surprises - champagne and strawberries, all that pampering, romantic stuff. Guys ought to know how to pamper their women properly.

Humor is laughing at what you haven't got when you ought to have it.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
John F. Kennedy
