Quote of the day-Kurt Vonnegut

“”Socialism” is no more an evil word than “Christianity.” Socialism no more prescribed Joseph Stalin and his secret police and shuttered churches than Christianity prescribed the Spanish Inquisition. Christianity and socialism alike, in fact, prescribe a society dedicated to the proposition that all men, women, and children are created equal and shall not starve.”
— Kurt Vonnegut

Quote of the day- John 13:34-35

A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.” John 13:34-35 New King James Version (NKJV)

Quote of the day-Matthew 22:36-40

“Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law?”

Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.”

Matthew 22:36-40 New King James Version (NKJV)

Quote of the day- Joseph Pulitzer

“We are a democracy and there is only one way to get a democracy on its feet in the matter of its individual, its social, its municipal, its state, its national conduct and that is by keeping the public informed about what is going on. There is not a crime, there is not a dodge, there is not a trick, there is not a swindle, there is not a vice, which does not live in secrecy. Get these things out in the open, describe them, attack them, ridicule them in the press, and sooner or later public opinion will sweep them away.”— Joseph Pulitzer (1847-1911) quoted in Alleyne Ireland, Joseph Pulitzer: Reminiscences of a Secretary (1920)

Quote of the day-John Adams

“I know not what answer to give you, but this, that Power always sincerely, conscientiously, de tres bon foi, believes itself right. Power always thinks it has a great soul, and vast views, beyond the comprehension of the weak; and that it is doing God service, when it is violating all His laws.

Our passions, ambition, avarice, love, resentment, etc., possess so much metaphysical subtlety and so much overpowering eloquence, that they insinuate themselves into the understanding and the conscience and convert both to their party, and I may be deceived as much as any of them, when I say, that Power must never be trusted without a Check.” John Adams in a letter to Thomas Jefferson February 2, 1816

Quote of the day-William Wordsworth

“On that best portion of a good man’s life; His little, nameless, unremembered acts Of kindness and of love.” William Wordsworth in ‘Lines Written A Few Miles Above Tintern Abbey’ July 13, 1798.

Quote of the day-Proverbs 14:31

“He who oppresses the poor reproaches his Maker, But he who honors Him has mercy on the needy.” Proverbs 14:31  (NKJV)
