I saw a bumper sticker the other day that really made sense to me about the state of confusion and false pride we are all complicit in these days, particularly after receiving a response letter from my state's more conservative senator. The bumper sticker said:

"Pro-life? Pro-war? Make up your mind!"

I will follow that 'bumper-philosophy' with these quotes:

'The world is very different now. For we human beings hold in our mortal hands the power to abolish all forms of human poverty, and all forms of human life."
- paraphrased from John Fitzgerald Kennedy

"I believe that as long as there is plenty, poverty is evil.
- Robert Kennedy

"The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have too is whether we provide enough for those who have too little."
- Franklin Delano Roosevelt

Find those quotes and more at this website: the Power of ONE

"Knowing what one is against is a potentially dangerous problem when one does not know what one is for." - anonymous

"Nobody grows old merely by living a number of years. We grow old by deserting our ideals. Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul."
- Samuel Ullman

"It is at our mother's knee that we acquire our noblest and truest and highest ideals, but there is seldom any money in them." - Mark Twain

'Do not consider Collectivists as 'sincere but deluded idealists'. The proposal to enslave some human beings for the sake of others is not an ideal; brutality is not 'idealistic,' no matter what its purpose. Do not ever say that the desire to 'do good' by force is a good motive. Neither power-lust nor stupidity are good motives.'
- paraphrased from Ayn Rand

Who are you?
'For the power of my anger, transforming itself into love, for the beauty and integrity of all life-forms, and for the bright energy of my passion for justice and the health of all beings, I bow to you in gratitude and touch the Earth.'"
- Caitriona Reed
