James H. Douglas, Jr.
If the people cannot trust their government to do the job for which it exists - to protect them and to promote their common welfare - all else is lost.

We should measure welfare's success by how many people leave welfare, not by how many are added.
The police are the public and the public are the police; the police being only members of the public who are paid to give full time attention to duties which are incumbent on every citizen in the interests of community welfare and existence.

Henry Van Dyke
I'm not into animal rights. I'm only into animal welfare and health. I've been with the Morris Animal Foundation since the '70s. We're a health organization.

Jews know this in their bones. Our community could not exist for a day without its volunteers. They are the lifeblood of our organizations, whether they involve welfare, youth, education, care of the sick and elderly, or even protection against violence and abuse.
I was born and raised in the ghetto, on welfare, two minutes from homeless.
The true basis of morality is utility; that is, the adaptation of our actions to the promotion of the general welfare and happiness; the endeavour so to rule our lives that we may serve and bless mankind.
