Welfare Quotes

We should measure welfare's success by how many people leave welfare, not by how many are added

James Talent

Vannevar Bush

Science, by itself, provides no panacea for individual, social, and economic ills. It can be effective in the national welfare only as a member of a team, whether the conditions be peace or war. But without scientific progress no amount of achievement in other directions can insure our health, prosperity, and security as a nation in the modern world.

Vannevar Bush
