We must be mad, literally mad, as a nation to be permitting the annual inflow of some 50,000 dependents, who are for the most part the material of the future growth of the immigrant-descended population. It is like watching a nation busily engaged in heaping up its own funeral pyre.

Everything that happens to us is a reflection of who we are.

And people who do not know the Lord ask why in the world we waste our lives as missionaries. They forget that they too are expending their lives... and when the bubble has burst they will have nothing of eternal significance to show for the years they have wasted.

Unlimited tolerance must lead to the disappearance of tolerance.

The vibrations on the air are the breath of God speaking to man's soul.

Anyone can achieve their fullest potential, who we are might be predetermined, but the path we follow is always of our own choosing.

We've all got both light and dark inside us.

What matters is the part we choose to act on. That's who we really are.

Our struggle is not easy. Those who oppose our cause are rich and powerful and they have many allies in high places. We are poor. Our allies are few. But we have something the rich do not own. We have our bodies and spirits and the justice of our cause as our weapons.

Friends are those rare people who ask how we are, and then wait to hear the answer.

Leaders who are not afraid to be called names and who are willing to go out and fight. I think women can save civilization. Women are persons.

No president, not the smartest, best human being in the world can do it alone.

You cannot take on this, the power that is in Washington, to billionaires and lobbyist, the military industrial complex, all of this money and power, you can`t do it. You need a mass movement of American who are looking in congress and we say directly.

We're in a declared war, but unless were clear about who the enemy is, we'll waste our time fighting enemies that aren't enemies at all. There's only one enemy and no matter what people do, say or react people are never the enemy. The enemy is our only enemy.

We need women who are so strong they can be gentle, so educated they can be humble, so fierce they can be compassionate, so passionate they can be rational, and so disciplined they can be free.
