Quotations #042

Normally I bold my favorite quotations. I can't possibly pick one or two of these over the others. Consider them all Bold.

"Poetry is simply the most beautiful, impressive, and widely effective way of saying things." -- Matthew Arnold

"Treat people as if they were what they ought to be and you help them to become what they are capable of being." -- Johann W. von Goethe

"If we were to wake up some morning and find that everyone was the same race, creed and color, we would find some other causes for prejudice by noon." -- Senator George Allen

"Politics should be the part time profession of every citizen." -- Dwight D. Eisenhower

"The legitimate object of government is to do for a community of people whatever they need to have done, but can not do at all, in their separate and individual capacities." -- Abraham Lincoln [And a happy belated birthday to you, too!]
