Terrorism is in good part an effect of government propaganda; it serves to deflect attention from governmental abuse toward a mostly imagined, highly dangerous outside enemy. (Quote by - Mark Poster)

Whatever you do, trample down abuses, and love those who love you. Different translation: Whatever you do, crush the infamous thing [superstition], and love those who love you. (Quote by - Voltaire (1694 - 1778))

Chaos of thought and passion, all confused; Still by himself abused or disabused; Created half to rise, and half to fall; Great lord of all things, yet a prey to all; Sole judge of truth, in endless error hurled,- The glory, jest, and riddle of the world. (Quote by - Alexander Pope (1688 - 1744))

The majority, oppressing an individual, is guilty of a crime, abuses its strength, and by acting on the law of the strongest breaks up the foundations of society. (Quote by - Thomas Jefferson)

The word 'conservative' is used by the BBC as a portmanteau word of abuse for anyone whose views differ from the insufferable, smug, sanctimonious, naive, guilt-ridden, wet, pink orthodoxy of that sunset home of the third-rate minds of that third-rate decade, the nineteen-sixties. (Quote by - Norman Tebbit)

These birds and animals and fish cannot speak, but they can suffer, and our God who created them, knows their sufferings, and will hold him who causes them to suffer unnecessarily to answer for it. It is a sin against their Creator. (Quote by - George Q. Cannon)

If there is anything to one's praise, it is a foolish vanity to be gratified at it; and, if it is abuse why one is always sure to hear of it from one damned good-natured friend or other! (Quote by - Sheridan)

I urge everyone to offer their support to recovering addicts during this time of year, and to recognize that substance abuse affects people from all walks of life. For recovering alcoholics like myself, New Year's Eve threatens our chance to reclaim our lives. With support, however, recovering addicts can continue on their path to sobriety. (Quote by - John Andrews )

One may be continually abusive without saying any thing just; but one cannot be always laughing at a man without now and then stumbling on something witty. (Quote by - Jane Austen)

The essence of Government is power; and power, lodged as it must be in human hands, will ever be liable to abuse. (Quote by - James Madison)

I believe the best service to the child is the service closest to the child, and children who are victims of neglect, abuse, or abandonment must not also be victims of bureaucracy. They deserve our devoted attention, not our divided attention. (Quote by - Kenny Guinn)

Books are the best of things, well used; abused, among the worst. What is the right use? What is the one end, which all means go to effect? They are for nothing but to inspire. (Quote by - Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 - 1882))

Much of the controversy and anxiety that has enveloped Darwin's idea ... can be understood as a series of campaigns in the struggle to contain Darwin's idea within some acceptably "safe" and merely partial revolution. Cede some or all of modern biology to Darwin, perhaps, but hold the line there! Keep Darwinian thinking out of cosmology, out of psychology, out of human culture, out of ethics, politics, and religion! In these campaigns, many battles have been won by the forces of containment: flawed applications of Darwin's idea have been exposed and discredited, beaten back by the champions of the pre-Darwinian tradition. But new waves of Darwinian thinking keep coming. They seem to be improved versions, not vulnerable to the refutations that defeated their predeccessors, but are they sound extensions of the unquestionably sound Darwinian core idea, or might they, too, be perversions of it, and even more virulent, more dangerous, than the abuses of Darwin already refuted? (Quote by - Daniel Dennett (1942 - ))

I know that all things considered, the United States of America, with all of its abuses of democracy and of liberty itself, is still the garden spot of the world, where peace, cooperation and constructive effort can and should prevail always and the cause of a higher Christian civilization advanced. (Quote by - George M. Verity)

The time will come when men such as I will look upon the murder of animals as they now look upon the murder of men. (Quote by - Leonardo Da Vinci)

There are things that we don't want to happen but have to accept, things we don't want to know but have to learn, and people we can't live without but have to let go. (Quote by - Author Unknown)

Know this, that ev'ry soul is free To choose his life and what he'll be; For this eternal truth is giv'n That God will force no man to heav'n. He'll call, persuade, direct aright, And bless with wisdom, love and light, In nameless ways be good and kind, But never force the human mind. Freedom and reason make us men; Take these away, what are we then? Mere animals, and just as well The beasts may think of heav'n or hell. May we no more our pow'rs abuse, But ways of truth and goodness choose; Our God is pleased when we improve His grace and seek his perfect love. (Quote by - unknown)

It's human nature to abuse power, no matter who you are. (Quote by - Naomi Wolf)

I've overcome neglect and deprivation, abandonment and abuse. (Quote by - Tatum O'Neal)

I never yet heard man or woman much abused that I was not inclined to think the better of them, and to transfer the suspicion or dislike to the one who found pleasure in pointing out the defects of another. (Quote by - Jane Porter)

Worry is an abuse of God's gift of imagination. (Quote by - Corrine Lajeunesse)

In order to drive it down further, we have to deal with today's substance abuse reality, and today's reality is, girls have been using at higher rates than boys in critical areas. (Quote by - John Walters )

Acceptance is not a state of passivity or inaction. I am not saying you can't change the world, right wrongs, or replace evil with good. Acceptance is, in fact, the first step to successful action. If you don't fully accept a situation precisely the way it is, you will have difficulty changing it. Moreover, if you don't fully accept the situation, you will never really know if the situation should be changed. (Quote by - Peter McWilliams)
