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.
I think there ought to be some serious discussion by smart people, really smart people, about whether or not proliferation of things like The Smoking Gun and TMZ and YouTube and the whole celebrity culture is healthy.
Severities should be dealt out all at once, so that their suddenness may give less offense; benefits ought to be handed ought drop by drop, so that they may be relished the more.
In order to improve the mind, we ought less to learn, than to contemplate.
To know what you prefer instead of humbly saying Amen to what the world tells you ought to prefer, is to have kept your soul alive.
Robert Louis Stevenson
I think that in the discussion of natural problems we ought to begin not with the Scriptures, but with experiments, and demonstrations.
The truth is that all men having power ought to be mistrusted.
Liberty, as well as honor, man ought to preserve at the hazard of his life, for without it life is insupportable.
Miguel de Cervantes
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 thousand painters ought to be killed yearly. Say what you like: I'm every inch a painter.
A good breeder or experienced rescue agency wants you to prove that you'll be a capable caretaker. The interrogation and screening can be annoying, but it's also a sign that you're on the right track. A breeder ought to know if you work long hours away from home, have a fenced yard, have kids or other animals, or if you have access to parks.
Whatever ought to be, can be.
But if you really want to get involved in making a difference, you can stay at home with your family and have a job and make a reasonable living without having to be on an airplane all of the time, then you ought to go back home and run for School Board.
What has marked Chinese society is its level of cruelty, not just revolutions and wars. We ought to reject it totally, otherwise in another upheaval there will be further cruelty.
True guilt is guilt at the obligation one owes to oneself to be oneself. False guilt is guilt felt at not being what other people feel one ought to be or assume that one is.
R. D. Laing
A man ought to live so that everybody knows he is a Christian... and most of all, his family ought to know.
Dwight L. Moody
There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
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.
When it is not in our power to follow what is true, we ought to follow what is most probable.
I think every good Christian ought to kick Falwell right in the ass.
Nobody, I think, ought to read poetry, or look at pictures or statues, who cannot find a great deal more in them than the poet or artist has actually expressed. Their highest merit is suggestiveness.
Human settlements are like living organisms. They must grow, and they will change. But we can decide on the nature of that growth - on the quality and the character of it - and where it ought to go. We don't have to scatter the building blocks of our civic life all over the countryside, destroying our towns and ruining farmland.
James Howard Kunstler
General benevolence, but not general friendship, made a man what he ought to be.
Wit ought to be a glorious treat like caviar; never spread it about like marmalade.
Life is precious. Life is sacred. And it ought so to be observed.
Gordon B. Hinckley
Martin Luther King, Jr.
C. S. Lewis
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
