For in reason, all government without the consent of the governed is the very definition of slavery.
Giving money and power to government is like giving whiskey and car keys to teenage boys.
P. J. O’Rourke
Government “help” to business is just as disastrous as government persecution… the only way a government can be of service to national prosperity is by keeping its hands off.
Government alone cannot solve the problems we deal with in our correctional facilities, treatment centers, homeless shelters and crisis centers – we need our faith-based and community partners.
Government is a trust, and the officers of the government are trustees. And both the trust and the trustees are created for the benefit of the people.
Put your nose into the Bible everyday. It is your spiritual food. And then share it. Make a vow not to be a lukewarm Christian.
Faith: not wanting to know what is true.
God, our Creator, has stored within our minds and personalities, great potential strength and ability. Prayer helps us tap and develop these powers.
God… a being whose only definition is that he is beyond man’s power to conceive.
Have faith in God; God has faith in you.
Edwin Louis Cole
I try to give people a different way of looking at their surroundings. That’s art to me.
If I have a style, I am not aware of it.
A building has integrity just like a man. And just as seldom.
A city building, you experience when you walk; a suburban building, you experience when you drive.
A great building must begin with the unmeasurable, must go through measurable means when it is being designed and in the end must be unmeasurable.
Great buildings that move the spirit have always been rare. In every case they are unique, poetic, products of the heart.
I am but an architectural composer.
Alexander Jackson Davis
I believe that the way people live can be directed a little by architecture.
I don’t build in order to have clients. I have clients in order to build.
I don’t divide architecture, landscape and gardening; to me they are one.
Success is blocked by concentrating on it and planning for it... Success is shy - it won't come out while you're watching.
Success is dependent on effort.
Success is falling nine times and getting up ten.
Jon Bon Jovi
The common idea that success spoils people by making them vain, egotistic and self-complacent is erroneous; on the contrary it makes them, for the most part, humble, tolerant and kind.
W. Somerset Maugham
The ladder of success is best climbed by stepping on the rungs of opportunity.
