It is possible to become discouraged about the injustice we see everywhere. But God did not promise us that the world would be humane and just. He gives us the gift of life and allows us to choose the way we will use our limited time on earth. It is an awesome opportunity.
History demonstrates that previous military drawdowns invited aggression by our enemies. After World War I, America drew down forces until the U.S. Army had fewer than 100,000 men in uniform. That weakness invited Nazi aggression in Europe and the imperial Japanese attack at Pearl Harbor.
My heroes are those who risk their lives every day to protect our world and make it a better place - police, firefighters and members of our armed forces.
Marathon running, like golf, is a game for players, not winners. That is why Callaway sells golf clubs and Nike sells running shoes. But running is unique in that the world's best racers are on the same course, at the same time, as amateurs, who have as much chance of winning as your average weekend warrior would scoring a touchdown in the NFL.
Hunter S. Thompson
Don't underestimate the power of your vision to change the world. Whether that world is your office, your community, an industry or a global movement, you need to have a core belief that what you contribute can fundamentally change the paradigm or way of thinking about problems.
Sometimes, only one person is missing, and the whole world seems depopulated.
Alphonse de Lamartine
When you see a person, do you just concentrate on their looks? It's just a first impression. Then there's someone who doesn't catch your eye immediately, but you talk to them and they become the most beautiful thing in the world. The greatest actors aren't what you would call beautiful sex symbols.
European nations began World War I with a glamorous vision of war, only to be psychologically shattered by the realities of the trenches. The experience changed the way people referred to the glamour of battle; they treated it no longer as a positive quality but as a dangerous illusion.
Creating a better world requires teamwork, partnerships, and collaboration, as we need an entire army of companies to work together to build a better world within the next few decades. This means corporations must embrace the benefits of cooperating with one another.
I'm not in this world to live up to your expectations and you're not in this world to live up to mine.
We are all travelers in the wilderness of this world, and the best we can find in our travels is an honest friend.
Robert Louis Stevenson
It is change, continuing change, inevitable change, that is the dominant factor in society today. No sensible decision can be made any longer without taking into account not only the world as it is, but the world as it will be.
Pearl Harbor caused our Nation to wholeheartedly commit to winning World War II, changing the course of our Nation's history and the world's future.
Next to the Word of God, the noble art of music is the greatest treasure in the world.
After women, flowers are the most lovely thing God has given the world.
Every dollar spent on nuclear is one less dollar spent on clean renewable energy and one more dollar spent on making the world a comparatively dirtier and a more dangerous place, because nuclear power and nuclear weapons go hand in hand.
Mark Z. Jacobson
What we have done for ourselves alone dies with us; what we have done for others and the world remains and is immortal.
Enthusiasm moves the world.
The world is not fair, and often fools, cowards, liars and the selfish hide in high places.
Bryant H. McGill
Hope is the pillar that holds up the world. Hope is the dream of a waking man.
Pliny the Elder
For what shall it profit a man, if he gain the whole world, and suffer the loss of his soul?
Women have always been the strong ones of the world. The men are always seeking from women a little pillow to put their heads down on. They are always longing for the mother who held them as infants.
For God so loved the World that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
Black and white is abstract; color is not. Looking at a black and white photograph, you are already looking at a strange world.
My friends, love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we'll change the world.
John F. Kennedy
Martin Luther King, Jr.
