Author Quotes

If I were the devil, I would take from those who have and I would give to those who wanted, until I had killed the incentive of the ambitious. And then, my police state would force everybody back to work. Then, I could separate families, putting children in uniform, women in coal mines, and objectors in slave camps. In other words, if I were Satan, I?d just keep on doing what he?s doing.

There's a whole argument in the relief world about whether aid undermines the social and political contract between the state and its citizens. But if the government can't provide assistance, do you want to allow people to die.

If I were the devil, I?d educate authors in how to make lurid literature exciting so that anything else would appear dull an uninteresting. I?d threaten T.V. with dirtier movies and vice versa. And then, if I were the devil, I?d get organized. I?d infiltrate unions and urge more loafing and less work, because idle hands usually work for me. I?d peddle narcotics to whom I could. I?d sell alcohol to ladies and gentlemen of distinction. And I?d tranquilize the rest with pills. If I were the devil, I would encourage schools to refine young intellects but neglect to discipline emotions . . . let those run wild. I would designate an atheist to front for me before the highest courts in the land and I would get preachers to say ?she?s right.? With flattery and promises of power, I could get the courts to rule what I construe as against God and in favor of pornography, and thus, I would evict God from the courthouse, and then from the school house, and then from the houses of Congress and then, in His own churches I would substitute psychology for religion, and I would deify science because that way men would become smart enough to create super weapons but not wise enough to control them.

There's such a thing as too literally interpreting.

If I were the Devil... I mean, if I were the Prince of Darkness, I would of course, want to engulf the whole earth in darkness. I would have a third of its real estate and four-fifths of its population, but I would not be happy until I had seized the ripest apple on the tree, so I should set about however necessary to take over the United States. I would begin with a campaign of whispers. With the wisdom of a serpent, I would whisper to you as I whispered to Eve: ?Do as you please.? ?Do as you please.? To the young, I would whisper, ?The Bible is a myth.? I would convince them that man created God instead of the other way around. I would confide that what is bad is good, and what is good is ?square?. In the ears of the young marrieds, I would whisper that work is debasing, that cocktail parties are good for you. I would caution them not to be extreme in religion, in patriotism, in moral conduct. And the old, I would teach to pray. I would teach them to say after me: ?Our Father, which art in Washington??

These devils must be stopped!

If 'pro' is the opposite of 'con' what is the opposite of 'progress'?

They have gun control in Cuba. They have universal health care in Cuba. So why do they want to come here?

If such an event occurred and Belden were unable to obtain waivers or otherwise resolve the covenant violation, an acceleration of the amounts under the credit agreement or the termination of the ISDA agreement could create a default under the indenture for Belden's $192 million senior secured notes.

This is the highest honor I have received since 60-some years ago, when Angel said "I do."

It was self-serving politicians who convinced recent generations of Americans that we could all stand in a circle with our hands in each other?s pockets and somehow get rich.

Tomorrow has always been better than today, and it always will be.

It's especially hard if the government is not providing services, or is even conducting ethnic cleansing against you.

We wanted security. And they gave us chains. And we were 'secure.'

I've never seen a monument erected to a pessimist.

What do you mean, you don't want to!

Mr. President [Richard Nixon], I love you, but you're wrong. [on the Vietnam War]

What happens with these guys (organizations) is it's very hard to find a successor. When the charismatic founder goes away, who's going to replace him?

No, that wasn't a factor. We had no excuses.

When your outgo exceeds your income, the upshot may be your downfall.

Now you know the rest of the story.

One would think by listening to all the propaganda about the United Nations that they are some sort of benevolent, peaceful organization. Never in the history of the United Nations has it stood for anything but killing and violence. They have never kept peace anywhere on this globe. Their sole function is to replace the U.S. military - dissolve all four branches of our armed forces. Their allegiance is only to the United Nations Charter which does not recognize the U.S. Constitution. This body is made up almost exclusively of communists and leaders of the bloodiest regimes on this globe. Their history and operating agenda is apparent to anyone who takes the time to sincerely and with an open mind, research the facts of this organization, separating truth from myth. Bilderberger participants (another group committed to one-world domination) in 1992 called for 'conditioning the public to accept the idea of a U.N. army that could, by force, impose its will on the internal affairs of any nation.'

Our Bible tells us to pray without ceasing. Now a handful of people and their lawyers are telling us to cease praying. God, help us. And if that last sentence offends you, well.......... just sue me.

I am fiercely loyal to those willing to put their money where my mouth is.

The silent majority has been silent too long? it's time we tell that one or two who scream loud enough to be heard, that the vast majority don't care what they want... it is time the majority rules! It's time we tell them, you don't have to pray... you don't have to say the pledge of allegiance, you don't have to believe in God or attend services that honor Him. That is your right, and we will honor your right... but by golly, you are no longer going to take our rights away... we are fighting back... and we WILL WIN!
