Every man worships the dollar, and is down before his shrine from morning to night...

Parental rights must not be taken away, and parental responsibilities must not be foisted upon others.benjamin tucker

Several alternatives to Gross Domestic Product have been proposed, and each tackles the central problem of placing a value on goods and services that never had a dollar price.

We must not in the course of public life expect immediate approbation and immediate grateful acknowledgment of our services. But let us persevere through abuse and even injury.
