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
My religion is truth, love and service to God and humanity. Every religion that has come into the world has brought the message of love and brotherhood. Those who are indifferent to the Welfare of their fellowmen, whose hearts are empty of love, they do not know the meaning of religion.abdul ghaffar khan
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 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

Welfare is hated by those who administer it; mistrusted by those who pay for it; and held in contempt by those who receive it.
The government may tomorrow withdraw every one of their troopsfrom Ireland.Ireland will be defended by her armed sons from foreign invasion, and for that purpose the armed Catholics in the south will be only too glad to join arms with the armed Protestant Ulsterman. Is it too muchtohope that out of thissituation a result mayspring that will be good not merely for the Empire but for the future Welfare and integrity of the Irish nation?
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
Specialization makes the Welfare of the society vulnerable to the market and to political forces beyond national control.robert gilpin
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
A tax can never be favorable to the public Welfare, except by the good use that is made of its proceeds.jean-baptiste say
The only justifiable stopping place for for the expansion of altruism is the point at which all whose Welfare can be affected by our actions are included within the circle of altruism. This means that all beings with the capacity to feel pleasure or pain should be included; we can improve their Welfare by increasing their pleasures and diminishing their pains.peter singer
We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect Union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
Our recent decisions make plain that we do not sit as a super-legislature to weigh the wisdom of legislation nor to decide whether the policy which it expresses offends the public Welfare.william o. douglas
If regular visits with prostitutes kept the political class from launching trillion-dollar war- and Welfare programs, and financing Fanny, Freddy and the Fed I would personally contribute to a prostitution fund for Washington whores. The prostitutes would be the patriots.ilana mercer
We have to get rid of the passive Welfare mentality that has taken over our people. Our traditional economy was a real economy and demanded responsibility (you don’t work, you starve). The whitefella market economy is real (you don’t work, you don’t get paid).
A ten per cent reduction in military expenditures per year would be reasonable, coupled with a programme of retraining the workforce and redirecting the resources in a manner that creates employment and advances social Welfare. I also encourage all States to contribute to the UN’s annual Report on Military Expenditures by submitting complete data on national defence budgets.
Slavery is but half abolished, emancipation is but half completed, while millions of freemen with votes in their hands are left without education. Justice to them, the Welfare of the States in which they live, the safety of the whole Republic, the dignity of the elective franchise, all alike demand that the still remaining bonds of ignorance shall be unloosed and broken, and the minds as well as the bodies of the emancipated go free.
I believe Socialism is the grandest theory ever presented, and I am sure it will someday rule the world. Then we will have attained the Millennium.… Then men will be content to work for the general Welfare and share their riches with their neighbors.
Be careful to have truthful friends and try to obtain them, for they are your support when you are in Welfare, and your advocator when you have misfortune.
