There is no right to strike against the public safety by anybody, anywhere, at any time.
So for us, the condition and preparation on and by which we are sheltered by that great hand, is the faith that asks, and the asking of faith. We must forsake the earthly props, but we must also believingly desire to be upheld by the heavenly arms. We make God responsible for our safety when we abandon other defense, and commit ourselves to Him.alexander maclaren
I observe you have thought proper to insert the last number of the Philosophical Magazine your opinion that my attempts at the safety tubes and apertures were borrowed from what I have heard of Sir Humphrey Davy's researches. The principles upon which a safety lamp might be constructed I stated to several persons long before Sir Humphrey Davy came into this part of the country. The plan of such a lamp was seen by several and the lamp itself was in the hands of the manufacturers during the time he was here.george stephenson
Left home in company with John Dixon to attend the internment of George Stephenson at Chesterfield. I fear he died an unbeliever. When I reflect on my first acquaintance with him and the resulting consequences my mind seems lost in doubt as to the beneficial results — that humanity has been benefited in the diminished use of horses and by the lessened cruelty to them, that much ease, safety, speed, and lessened expense in travelling is obtained, but as to the results and effects of all that railways had led my dear family into, being in any sense beneficial is uncertain.george stephenson
There must be ever present in our minds the fundamental truth that in a republic such as ours the only safety is to stand neither for nor against any man because he is rich or because he is poor, because he is engaged in one occupation or another, because he works with his brains or because he works with his hands.Theodore Roosevelt (1903) A Square Deal
In safety, . . . it was believed, the last word had been uttered in the construction of the ‘Titanic.”’New York Times, April 16, 1912
Sweet is the remembrance of troubles when you are in safety.Euripides, Andromeda, 10. 2. (Fragment).
As a matter of fact I trade in accordance to my means and always leave myself an ample margin of safety.Chapter XV, p. 183 (Reminiscences of a Stock Operator (1923))
When you have overcome one temptation, you must be ready to enter the lists with another. As distrust, in some sense, is the mother of safety, so security is the gate of danger. A man had need to fear this most of all, that he fears not at all.Thomas Brooks, p. 532. (Dictionary of Burning Words of Brilliant Writers (1895))

For happily the government of the United States, which gives to bigotry no sanction, to persecution no assistance, requires only that they who live under its protection should demean themselves as good citizens, in giving it on all occasions their effectual support…. May the children of the Stock of Abraham, who dwell in this land, continue to merit and enjoy the good will of the other inhabitants, while every one shall sit in safety under his own vine and fig-tree, and there shall be none to make him afraid.George Washington, letter to the Hebrew congregation of Newport, Rhode Island (August 17, 1790); reported in John C. Fitzpatrick, Ed., The Writings of George Washington (1939), vol. 31, p. 93
There is one ill that faith-based programs are proven to ameliorate unemployment among Christian evangelicals. The Christianization of the safety net has created a kind of affirmative action for the born again.Michelle Goldberg, on the The White House Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives, in Kingdom Coming: The Rise of Christian Nationalism, 1st ed. (W. W. Norton., 2006), p. 128
If, after an absolute consecration to Him, and a conviction in conscience that He requires something of us, we hesitate, delay, lose courage, dilute what He would have us do, indulge fear for our comfort or safety, desire to shield ourselves from suffering and obloquy, or seek to find some excuse for not performing a difficult or painful duty, we are truly guilty in His sight.François Fénelon, p. 249. (Dictionary of Burning Words of Brilliant Writers (1895))
Surely the recitation of the Qur’an is an atonement for the sins, a covering (protection) from the Hell Fire, and a safety from the punishment. Mercy will descend upon the reciter, the Angels will seek forgiveness for him, Heaven will long for that person, and his Master (Allah) will be pleased with him.Biharul Anwar, Volume 93, Page 17 (Shi'ite Hadith)
I would give all my fame for a pot of ale, and safety.Boy, scene ii
