“For myself I am an optimist. It does not seem to be much use being anything else.”

“A love of tradition has never weakened a nation, it indeed it has strengthened nations in their hour of peril; but the new view must come, the world must roll forward…Let us have no fear of the future.”

“The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings. The inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries”
