Profound Quotes for Today ***

"I believe that if we had and would keep our dirty, bloody, dollar-soaked fingers out of the business of these nations so full of depressed, exploited people, they will arrive at a solution of their own - and if unfortunately their revolution must be of the violent type because the "haves" refuse to share with the "have-nots" by any peaceful method, at least what they get will be their own and not the American style, which they don't want and above all don't want crammed down their throats by Americans. " _General David M. Shoup, Commandant of the Marine Corps 1960-63, winner of the Congressional Medal of Honor - Source: May 14, 1966

"He who is not angry when there is just cause for anger is immoral. Why? Because anger looks to the good of justice. And if you can live amid injustice without anger, you are immoral as well as unjust." Aquinas

"I don't know a more irreligious attitude, one more utterly bankrupt of any human content, than one which permits children to be destroyed." - Daniel Berrigan

"I have the audacity to believe that people everywhere can have: three meals a day for their bodies, education and culture for their minds - and dignity, equality and freedom for their spirits" - Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
