Famous quotes containing the words children, effects, social and/or aspects:

    It takes a heap o’ children to make a home that’s true,
    And home can be a palace grand, or just a plain, old shoe;
    But if it has a mother dear, and a good old dad or two,
    Why, that’s the sort of good old home for good old me and you.
    Louis Untermeyer (1885–1977)

    Trade and commerce, if they were not made of India-rubber, would never manage to bounce over the obstacles which legislators are continually putting in their way; and, if one were to judge these men wholly by the effects of their actions and not partly by their intentions, they would deserve to be classed and punished with those mischievous persons who put obstructions on the railroads.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Throughout the 1980’s, we did hear too much about individual gain and the ethos of selfishness and greed. We did not hear enough about how to be a good member of a community, to define the common good and to repair the social contract. And we also found that while prosperity does not trickle down from the most powerful to the rest of us, all too often indifference and even intolerance do.
    Hillary Rodham Clinton (b. 1947)

    It is always a sign of an unproductive time when it concerns itself with petty and technical aspects [in philology], and likewise it is a sign of an unproductive person to pursue such trifles.
    Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe (1749–1832)
