Good & Evil
"Among a people generally corrupt liberty cannot long exist."
"Only the sinner has the right to preach."
"You would not call a man humane for ceasing to set mousetraps if he did so because he believed there were no mice in the house."
"I believe one of the reasons so many do not get a higher education is the fear of their parents that they will lose more morally than they will receive mentally."
William Jennings Bryan
"We have a strange illusion that mere time cancels sin. But mere time does nothing either to the fact or to the guilt of a sin."
"Wherever any precept of traditional morality is simply challenged to produce its credentials, as though the burden of proof lay on it, we have taken the wrong position."
"I say that a man must be certain of his morality for the simple reason that he has to suffer for it."
"It's not that we don't have enough scoundrels to curse; it's that we don't have enough good men to curse them."

"A silly idea is current that good people do not know what temptation means. This is an obvious lie. Only those who try to resist temptation know how strong it is...

They have lived a sheltered life by always giving in."
"People are unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered. Love them anyway. If you do good, people may accuse you of selfish motives. Do good anyway. If you are successful, you may win false friends and true enemies. Succeed anyway. The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway. Honesty and transparency make you vulnerable. Be honest and transparent anyway. What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight. Build anyway. People who really want help may attack you if you help them. Help them anyway. Give the world the best you have and you may get hurt. Give the world your best anyway."
"If you can't feed a hundred people, then feed just one."
"No people can be great who have ceased to be virtuous."
"Toleration is the best religion."
"Have no fear of robbers or murderers. They are external dangers, petty dangers. We should fear ourselves. Prejudices are the real robbers; vices the real murders. The great dangers are within us. Why worry about what threatens our heads or purses? Let us think instead of what threatens our souls."
"The darkest places in hell are reserved for those who maintain their neutrality in times of moral crisis."
