[For Twenty-five Years I've Been Speaking And Writing In Defense Of Your Right To Happiness In This World, Condemning Your Inability To Take What Is Your Due, To Secure What You Won In Bloody Battles On The Barricades Of Paris And Vienna, In The American Civil War, In The Russian Revolution. Your Paris Ended With Petain And Laval, Your Vienna With Hitler, Your Russia With Stalin, And Your America May Well End In The Rule Of The Ku Klux Klan! You've Been More Successful In Winning Your Freedom Than In Securing It For Yourself And Others. This I Knew Long Ago. What I Did Not Understand Was Why Time And Again, After Fighting Your Way Out Of A Swamp, You Sank Into A Worse One. Then Groping And Cautiously Looking About Me, I Gradually Found Out What Has Enslaved You: YOUR SLAVE DRIVER IS YOU YOURSELF. No One Is To Blame For Your Slavery But You Yourself. No One Else, I Say!]

Marion G Romney Quotes

"We lose our life by serving and lifting others. By so doing we experience the only true and lasting happiness. Service is not something we endure on this earth so we can earn the right to live in the celestial kingdom. Service is the very fiber of which an exalted life in the celestial kingdom is made. Oh, for the glorious day when these things all come naturally because of the purity of our hearts... We are truly happy only when we are engaged in unselfish service. Service is what godhood is all about."

Quotes About Munger

"Buffetts methodology was straightforward, and in that sense simple. It was not simple in the sense of being easy to execute. Valuing companies such as Coca-Cola took a wisdom forged by years of experience; even then, there was a highly subjective element. A Berkshire stockholder once complained that there were no more franchises like Coca-Cola left. Munger tartly rebuked him. Why should it be easy to do something that, if done well two or three times, will make your family rich for life?" - Author: Roger Lowenstein

Quotes About Apron

"Though her head was aching too much for her to reason with herself, she could think of nice things - the Cumberland hills, her lambs, her Nannie, who had taught her this trick of detachment. "When youre sick or sorry, child" she had said, "think of other things as much as you are able. Its just practice, Start young and youll get the trick of it."

Quotes About Southern Yankees

"Ive found, though, that people are more likely to share their personal experiences if you go first, so thats why I always keep an eleven-point list of what went wrong in my childhood to share with them. Also I usually crack open a bottle of tequila to share with them, because alcohol makes me less nervous, and also because Im from the South, and in Texas we offer drinks to strangers even when were waiting in line at the liquor store. In Texas we call that _southern hospitality_. The people who own the liquor store call it shoplifting. Probably because theyre Yankees.Im not allowed to go back to that liquor store." - Author: Jenny Lawson
