[I Said I Didn't Think It Would Be A Collectivist State So Much As A Wilderness In Which Most People Lived Hand To Mouth, And The Rich Would Live Like Princes - Better Than The Rich Had Ever Lived, Except That Their Lives Would Constantly Be In Danger From The Hungry Predatory Poor. All The Technology Would Serve The Rich, But They Would Need It For Their Own Protection And To Assure Their Continued Prosperity.]

Quotes About Materijalno

"Duhovno bogat čovek neretko pokazuje šustinski prezir prema materijalnom. Međutim, malo koji materijalista pokazuje prezir prema duhovnom - iako ga poprilično prezire. Postoji u njih izvesna svest o tome da produhovljeni nikad ne dolazi u opasnost da bude nazvan glupanom zbog nepoštovanja prema materijalnom, ali zato obrnuto uvek važi." - Author: Marko Šelić

Quotes About The Uss Constitution

"The really dangerous American fascist... is the man who wants to do in the United States in an American way what Hitler did in Germany in a Prussian way. The American fascist would prefer not to use violence. His method is to poison the channels of public information. With a fascist the problem is never how best to present the truth to the public but how best to use the news to deceive the public into giving the fascist and his group more money or more power... They claim to be super-patriots, but they would destroy every liberty guaranteed by the Constitution. They demand free enterprise, but are the spokesmen for monopoly and vested interest. Their final objective, toward which all their deceit is directed, is to capture political power so that, using the power of the state and the power of the market simultaneously, they may keep the common man in eternal subjection.~quoted in the New York Times, April 9, 1944" - Author: Henry A. Wallace

Quotes About Parents Not Caring

"Everyone can be in a relationship. And being in a relationship doesnt means that you have to catch each other hands and walk in-front of everyone without caring anyone.

If wanna be in a relationship do it in a standard way. And first focus on what you should do. Do not prioritize your ambition on some one just without caring your parents.First focus on making life so that you can keep your parents and relationship happy. That when you are successful only then take a big step." - Author: Lalit Sharma

Quotes About The Seven Gifts Of The Holy Spirit

"A lowly knowledge of thyself is a surer way to God than the deep searching of a mans learnings. Not that learning is to be blamed, nor the taking account of anything that is good; but a good conscience and a holy life is better than all. And because many seek knowledge rather than good living, therefore they go astray, and bear little or no fruit." - Author: Thomas à Kempis
