I have nothing but contempt for the kind of governor who is afraid, for whatever reason, to follow the course that he knows is best for the State; and as for the man who sets private friendship above the public welfare — I have no use for him, either.
May all the gods whom I settled in their sacred centers ask daily of Bêl and Nâbu that my days be long and may they intercede for my Welfare. ... The people of Babylon blessed my kingship, and I settled all the lands in peaceful abodes.cyrus the great
Censorship, in my opinion, is a stupid and shallow way of approaching the solution to any problem. Though sometimes necessary, as witness a professional and technical secret that may have a bearing upon the Welfare and very safety of this country, we should be very careful in the way we apply it, because in censorship always lurks the very great danger of working to the disadvantage of the American nation.
Collectivists would have you believe that individualism is merely another word for selfishness, because individualists oppose Welfare and other forms of coercive redistribution of wealth, but just the opposite is true. Individualists advocate true charity, which is the voluntary giving of their own money, while collectivists advocate the coercive giving of other people's money; which, of course, is why it is so popular.g. edward griffon
Reaching the summit of a mountain gives great satisfaction, but nothing for me has been more rewarding in life than the result of our climb on Everest, when we have devoted ourselves to the Welfare of our Sherpa friends.edmund hillary
American critics of Welfare statism are often surprised to learn that countries like West Germany, with a much more comprehensive Welfare state and a statistically "larger" public sector, have fewer government employees per capita than the United States does.robert kuttner
Lasting peace is sought, it is essential to adopt international measures to improve the lot of the masses. The Welfare of the entire human race must replace hunger and oppression. People of the world must be taught to give up envy, avarice and rancour.Mustafa Kemal Atatürk
The US, for historical reasons, mistrusts the concept of a Welfare state, and this mistrust shows itself nakedly under present US government, which commits uncounted billions of the national wealth to what it calls defence, and is close-fisted in giving money to plans which would ameliorate the grinding poverty of a great part of its people. Quite simply, in Canada you could not get away with that.Robertson Davies
The story of Joseph in Egypt and of the seven fat and the seven lean years has passed into the homely wisdom of the ages; but our economic thinking seems to have lost contact with so simple and basic approach to prudent management of a nations Welfare.benjamin graham
Terms like " liberty" and "individual freedom" invoked by generations of Americans who battled to widen the 1787 promise to "promote the general Welfare" have been perverted to create a government primarily dedicated to the state and the political class that runs it. Yes, Virginia, there is a class war and ordinary people are losing it.bill moyers
American critics of Welfare statism are often surprised to learn that countries like West Germany, with a much more comprehensive Welfare state and a statistically "larger" public sector, have fewer government employees per capita than the United States does.
Almost all of the social tragedies occurring around the world today are caused by ignoring the basic biological laws of nature ... The quicker we humans learn that saving open space and wildlife is critical to our Welfare and quality of life, maybe we'll start thinking of doing something about it.jim fowler
To deny one's self, to take up the cross, denotes something immeasurably grander than self-imposed penance or rigid conformity to a Divine statute. It is the surrender of self to an ennobling work, an absolute subordination of personal advantages and of personal pleasures for the sake of truth and the Welfare of others, and a willing acceptance of every disability which their interests may entail.george c. lorimer
What would you do if your country's Welfare depended on labor? When a ship is in a storm it requires one captain.fritz sauckel
The state is therefore everyone; the rules within the state are laws which safeguard the Welfare of all and which must originate from the Welfare of all.
A nation's wealth is too serious a matter to be left to the wealthy. The riches of a nation belong to all, to be shared among all for the general Welfare.pierre stephen robert payne
These qualities which accompany this unity, praiseworthy community of purpose and Welfare, loyalty to public ends, mutuality of sympathy, are emphasized. But when we look at the facts which the term denotes instead of confiding our attention to the intrinsic connotation, we find not unity, but plurality of societies, both good and bad.john dewey
Science would be ruined if (like sports) it were to put competition above everything else, and if it were to clarify the rules of competition by withdrawing entirely into narrowly defined specialties. The rare scholars who are nomads by choice are essential to the intellectual Welfare of the subtle disciplinesbenoît mandelbrot
It is out of nature that any man should think it good that his own order should be repressed, curtailed, and deprived of its power. If we go among cab-drivers or letter-carriers, among butlers or gamekeepers, among tailors or butchers, among farmers or grazers, among doctors or attorneys, we shall find in each set of men a conviction that the Welfare of the community depends upon the firmness with which they, especially they, hold their own.Anthony Trollope
Of all the founders of great religions, Jesus alone proclaimed one God, immanent and powerful, holy and righteous, a loving and seeking Father, concerned about the Welfare of each of his children.
Wherever in a home there is immaturity, lack of self-control, and anti-social stimuli, coercion may be necessary in order to safeguard the other members of the family, and to prevent remorse for irreparable wrongdoing.

"It is the Welfare state that has made capitalism, with all its attendant benefits of economic growth, politically feasible..."
Great constitutional provisions must be administered with caution. Some play must be allowed for the joints of the machine, and it must be remembered that legislatures are ultimate guardians of the liberties and Welfare of the people in quite as great a degree as the courts.
First, the Welfare state is not a subject apart, but fits naturally into the framework of economic analysis. Secondly,the theoretical arguments support the existence of the Welfare state not only for well known equity reasons but also - and powerfully - in efficiency terms.
Yagna – means selfless sacrifice for notable purposes. Sacrificing of the ego , selfishsness and material attachments and adopting rational thinking, humane compassion and dedicated creativity for the Welfare of all – is indeed the best yagna which should be performed by all human beings.
