Ummah Welfare quotes by George H. Smith
#1. It is my firm conviction that man has nothing to gain, emotionally or otherwise, by adhering to a falsehood, regardless of how comfortable or sacred that falsehood may appear. Anyone who claims, on the one hand, that he is concerned with human welfare, and who demands, on the other hand, that man must suspend or renounce the use of his reason, is contradicting himself.
There can be no knowledge of what is good for man apart from knowledge of reality and human nature, and there is no manner in which this knowledge can be acquired except through reason. To advocate irrationality is to advocate that which is destructive to human life. #Quote by George H. Smith
Ummah Welfare quotes by Steven Pinker
#2. One student asks: Why should I live?

Steven Pinker answers: In the very act of asking that question, you are seeking reasons for your convictions, and so you are committed to reason as the means to discover and justify what is important to you. And there are so many reasons to live! As a sentient being, you have the potential to flourish. You can refine your faculty of reason itself by learning and debating. You can seek explanations of the natural world through science, and insight into the human condition through the arts and humanities. You can make the most of your capacity for pleasure and satisfaction, which allowed your ancestors to thrive and thereby allowed you to exist. You can appreciate the beauty and richness of the natural and cultural world. As the heir to billions of years of life perpetuating itself, you can perpetuate life in turn. You have been endowed with a sense of sympathy - the ability to like, love, respect, help, and show kindness - and you can enjoy the gift of mutual benevolence with friends, family, and colleagues. And because reason tells you that none of this is particular to you, you have the responsibility to provide to others what you expect for yourself. You can foster the welfare of other sentient beings by enhancing life, health, knowledge, freedom, abundance, safety, beauty, and peace. History shows that when we sympathize with others and apply our ingenuity to improving the human condition, we can make progress in doing so, a #Quote by Steven Pinker
Ummah Welfare quotes by Foxy Brown
#3. All my friends were in the park smoking weed and getting pregnant. I didn't want to be the young black girl having a baby, a baby's father, being on welfare. That wasn't going to be my story. #Quote by Foxy Brown
Ummah Welfare quotes by Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero
#4. I want to increase our spending on research and development by 25%. That's something the U.S. does very well. That dynamism alongside a welfare state in the European community - that's the synthesis I want to achieve. #Quote by Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero
Ummah Welfare quotes by Herbert A. Simon
#5. The Nobel prizes memorialize Alfred Nobel's faith in the contribution that human thought, directed to science and art, can make to human welfare. #Quote by Herbert A. Simon
Ummah Welfare quotes by Stephen Reinhardt
#6. Defendants' essential contention is that bans on same-sex marriage promote the welfare of children, by encouraging good parenting in stable opposite-sex families ... Defendants have presented no evidence of any such effect. Indeed, they cannot even explain the manner in which, as they predict, children of opposite-sex couples will be harmed. Their other contentions are equally without merit. #Quote by Stephen Reinhardt
Ummah Welfare quotes by Shaun David Hutchinson
#7. Everyone matters, Elena."
"But don't some people matter more than others?" I asked. "I mean, if we're talking about saving humanity, doesn't it make sense to save the best and brightest of us?"
Freddie's laughter had faded. "So you're saying it's better to save a world-famous physicist than say, a modest merchant who was a partner in a bed feathers company."
"That's a really odd comparison, but yeah."
"Except no," Freddie said. "That merchant and his wife would go on to birth and raise Albert Einstein." She paused dramatically. "Hermann and Pauline Einstein might not have seemed like anyone special at the time, but their son changed how we look at the universe."
"That's one example."
"Here's another. Who should you save? A genius mathematician admitted to Harvard at sixteen or a single mom living on welfare?"
"This is a trick question."
"Are you allergic to answering questions, or what?"
"The mathematician," I said.
"Ted Kaczynski. Otherwise known as the Unabomber. And that single mom would go on to write Harry Potter. #Quote by Shaun David Hutchinson
Ummah Welfare quotes by Justin Simien
#8. Calling out the supposed 'abuse' of welfare by blacks and other people of color is a time-honored tactic for distracting the general public from actual national issue. It also taps into latent, subconscious racism, which is what right-wing politicians would call a 'win-win. #Quote by Justin Simien
Ummah Welfare quotes by Noam Chomsky
#9. Well, according to the new spirit of the age, in the case of a fourteen-year-old girl who got raped and has a child, her child has to learn "personal responsibility" by not accepting state welfare handouts, meaning, by not having enough to eat. Alright, I don't agree with that at any level. In fact, I think it's grotesque at any level. #Quote by Noam Chomsky
Ummah Welfare quotes by Theodore Roosevelt
#10. Each child represents either a potential addition to the protective capacity and enlightened citizenship of the nation or, if allowed to suffer from neglect, a potential addition to the destructive forces of a community ... The interests of the nation are involved in the welfare of this array of children no less than in our great material affairs. #Quote by Theodore Roosevelt
Ummah Welfare quotes by John F. Kennedy
#11. I am glad that Congress has recently authorized $800,000 to State welfare agencies to expand their day-care services during the remainder of this fiscal year. But we need much more. We need the $8 million in the 1965 budget for the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare allocated to this purpose. #Quote by John F. Kennedy
Ummah Welfare quotes by Hubert H. Humphrey
#12. We will be remembered not for the power of our weapons but for the power of our compassion, our dedication to human welfare. #Quote by Hubert H. Humphrey
Ummah Welfare quotes by Murray N. Rothbard
#13. If the seventeenth through the nineteenth centuries were, in many countries of the West, times of accelerating social power, and a corollary increase in freedom, peace, and material welfare, the twentieth century has been primarily an age in which State power has been catching up - with a consequent reversion to slavery, war, and destruction.43 In #Quote by Murray N. Rothbard
Ummah Welfare quotes by Ezra Taft Benson
#14. Attractive labels are usually attached to the most dangerous programs, often in the name of public welfare and personal security. #Quote by Ezra Taft Benson
Ummah Welfare quotes by Steve Bivans
#15. What's interesting is that most free-marketers don't seem to want a free market at all, but a status quo market. The market in the United States is anything but free. If it were, big business would have to survive without corporate welfare to the tune of about $1 trillion (that's trillion) in government subsidies, the majority of which, about $650 billion, go to the fossil fuel industry! They are living off of the public dole on subsidies totaling billions of dollar - that we hand out either directly, or through tax breaks for their big corporations - with the false assumption that they are creating jobs. They are not. They are creating yachts, Leer Jets, and McMansions with swimming pools. #Quote by Steve Bivans
Ummah Welfare quotes by Paul Watson
#16. The war against the Canadian seal hunt is more than a protest. It is a crusade to bring harmony between the natural world and humanity. All of us who oppose it are dedicated to the protection of life and the abolition of cruelty. #Quote by Paul Watson
Ummah Welfare quotes by Anonymous
#17. For the purposes of this paper and discussion, I will equate public service with 'public interest' and 'public welfare', which seem to me to be virtually synonymous (Nockels, 1930). #Quote by Anonymous
Ummah Welfare quotes by Atal Bihari Vajpayee
#18. The success of family welfare depends on giving women complete freedom with their lives. The need of the hour is that people should plan their families as per their convenience and get the bare minimum health facilities #Quote by Atal Bihari Vajpayee
Ummah Welfare quotes by Ronald Reagan
#19. The economic welfare of all our people must ultimately stem not from government programs, but from the wealth created by a vigorous private sector. #Quote by Ronald Reagan
Ummah Welfare quotes by Adam Carolla
#20. Welfare is monetary methadone. #Quote by Adam Carolla
Ummah Welfare quotes by Jefferson Davis
#21. To increase the power, develop the resources and promote the happiness of a Confederacy, it is requisite there should be so much of homogeneity that the welfare of every portion would be the aim of the whole. #Quote by Jefferson Davis
Ummah Welfare quotes by Paul R. Howe
#22. Currently our society tends to churn out individuals that tend to ask the system, "What are you going to give or do for me?" We see this attitude all around us. Self-serving individuals concerned with their personal comfort and welfare beyond the norm. These individuals expect the system to take care of them at all costs. When I run across one of these individuals, it makes me want to puke. This attitude is damn near a form of communism. #Quote by Paul R. Howe
Ummah Welfare quotes by Dalai Lama
#23. Our life depends on others so much that at the root of our existence is a fundamental need for love. That is why it is good to cultivate an authentic sense of responsibility and concern for the welfare of others. #Quote by Dalai Lama
Ummah Welfare quotes by David Petersen
#24. Naturally and logically, people who forage rather than herd domestic beasts and tend crops for a living - that is, people who depend utterly on wild as opposed to agriculture nature for their welfare - inevitably come to view themselves as merely an element of it all, one member of an egalitarian community, alternately eating and being eaten. #Quote by David Petersen
Ummah Welfare quotes by Alfred-Maurice De Zayas
#25. 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. #Quote by Alfred-Maurice De Zayas
Ummah Welfare quotes by Gordon B. Hinckley
#26. Now we are at war. Great forces have been mobilized and will continue to be. Political alliances are being forged. We do not know how long this conflict will last. We do not know what it will cost in lives and treasure. We do not know the manner in which it will be carried out. It could impact the work of the Church in various ways.
Our national economy has been made to suffer. It was already in trouble, and this has compounded the problem. Many are losing their employment. Among our own people, this could affect welfare needs and also the tithing of the Church. It could affect our missionary program. #Quote by Gordon B. Hinckley
Ummah Welfare quotes by Robert Charles Winthrop
#27. Slavery is but half abolished, emancipation is but half completed, while millions of freeman with votes in their hands are left without education. #Quote by Robert Charles Winthrop
Ummah Welfare quotes by Noam Chomsky
#28. In his book Politics, which is the foundation of the study of political systems, and very interesting, Aristotle talked mainly about Athens. But he studied various political systems - oligarchy, monarchy - and didn't like any of the particularly. He said democracy is probably the best system, but it has problems, and he was concerned with the problems. One problem that he was concerned with is quite striking because it runs right up to the present. He pointed out that in a democracy, if the people - people didn't mean people, it meant freemen, not slaves, not women - had the right to vote, the poor would be the majority, and they would use their voting power to take away property from the rich, which wouldn't be fair, so we have to prevent this.

James Madison made the same pint, but his model was England. He said if freemen had democracy, then the poor farmers would insist on taking property from the rich. They would carry out what we these days call land reform. and that's unacceptable. Aristotle and Madison faced the same problem but made the opposite decisions. Aristotle concluded that we should reduce ineqality so the poor wouldn't take property from the rich. And he actually propsed a visin for a city that would put in pace what we today call welfare-state programs, common meals, other support systems. That would reduce inequality, and with it the problem of the poor taking property from the rich. Madison's decision was the opposite. We should reduce democracy #Quote by Noam Chomsky
Ummah Welfare quotes by F. A. Harper
#29. It seems that wherever the Welfare State is involved, the moral precept, "Thou shalt not steal," becomes altered to say: "Thou shalt not steal, except for what thou deemest to be a worthy cause, where thou thinkest that thou canst use the loot for a better purpose than wouldst the victim of the theft." #Quote by F. A. Harper
Ummah Welfare quotes by Saul D. Alinsky
#30. Today everything is so complex as to be incomprehensible. What sense does it make for men to walk on the moon while other men are waiting on welfare lines, or in Vietnam killing and dying for a corrupt dictatorship in the name of freedom? #Quote by Saul D. Alinsky
Ummah Welfare quotes by Murray Rothbard
#31. This, by the way, is the welfare state in action: Its a whole bunch of special interest groups screwing consumers and taxpayers, and making them think they're really benefiting. #Quote by Murray Rothbard
Ummah Welfare quotes by Alexis De Veaux
#32. Yes I graduated from high school. Welfare. Temporary work, please. What is my problem? I want to eat. #Quote by Alexis De Veaux
Ummah Welfare quotes by Nick Clooney
#33. It is statesmanlike for the administration and Congress to look to our nation's welfare beyond their terms in office. #Quote by Nick Clooney
Ummah Welfare quotes by Gloria Steinem
#34. At first, feminists were assumed to be only discontented suburban housewives; then a small bunch of women's "libbers", bra burners, and radicals; then women on welfare; then briefcase carrying imitations of male executives; then unfulfilled women who forgot to have children; then women voters ... that really could decide elections. That last was too dangerous, so suddenly we were told we were in a "postfeminist" age ... #Quote by Gloria Steinem
