Welfare Quotes

Charity begins at home

Publius Terentius Afer

We all have a little weakness, which is very natural but rather misleading, for supposing that this epoch must be the end of the world because it will be the end of us. How future generations will get on without us is indeed, when we come to think of it, quite a puzzle. But I suppose they will get on somehow, and may possibly venture to revise our judgments as we have revised earlier judgments

Gilbert Keith Chesterton

The one predominant duty is to find one's work and do it

Charlotte Perkins Gilman

Whoever claims the right to redistribute the wealth produced by others is claiming the right to treat human beings as chattel

Ayn Rand

Government does not tax to get the money it needs; government always finds a need for the money it gets

Ronald Reagan

Envy is the basis of Democracy

Bertrand Russell

I want for our country enough laws to restrain me from injuring others, so that these laws will also restrain others from injuring me. I want enough government, with enough constitutional safeguards, so that this necessary minimum of laws will be applied equitably to everybody, and will be binding on the rulers as well as those ruled. Beyond that I want neither laws nor government to be imposed on our people as a means or with the excuse of protecting us from catching cold, or of seeing that we raise the right kind of crops, or of forcing us to live in the right kind of houses or neighborhoods, or of compelling us to save money or to spend it, or of telling us when or whether we can pray. I do not want government or laws designed for any other form of welfarism or paternalism, based on the premise that government knows best and can run our lives better than we can run them ourselves. And my concept of freedom, and of its overwhelming importance, is implicit in these aspirations and ideals

Robert Welch

Experts and the educated elite have replaced what worked with what sounded good. Society was far more civilized before they took over our schools, prisons, welfare programs, police departments and courts. It's high time we ran these people out of our lives and went back to common sense

Walter E. Williams

By encouraging its citizens to violate our border, Mexico is pushing a tremendous welfare burden off of its shoulders and onto ours, while also benefiting from the significant sums of U.S. Currency that these workers will eventually send back home to their families

Spencer Bachus

Far more has been accomplished for the welfare and progress of mankind by preventing bad actions than by doing good ones.

William Lyon Mackenzie King

For women who turn to welfare, Big Brother becomes Husband.

Tammy Bruce

For years I thought what was good for our country was good for General Motors and vice versa. The difference did not exist. Our company is too big. It goes with the welfare of the country.

Charles Erwin Wilson

I have deep feelings for the welfare and comfort of others

DeForest Kelley

The "Great Society" has not worked and it's put us into the modern welfare state. If you look at China, they don't have food stamps. If you look at China, they're in a very different situation. They save for their own retirement security... They don't have the modern welfare state and China's growing. And so what I would do is look at the programs that LBJ gave us with the Great Society and they'd be gone.

Michele Bachmann
