slays thanksgiving, but an humble mind is the
soil out of which thanks naturally grow. A proud
man is seldom a grateful man, for he never thinks
he gets as much as he deserves.”
-- Henry Ward
are a country that prides itself on power and wealth,
yet there are millions of children who go hungry every
day. It is our responsibility, not only as a nation,
but also as individuals, to get involved. So, next time
you pass someone on the street who is in need, remember
how lucky you are, and don't turn away.
-- Lesley Boone
as people take pride in their national independence,
we know we are becoming more and more interdependent.”
~ Bill Clinton
discovered that peace at any price is no peace at all.
We discovered that life at any price has no value whatever;
that life is nothing without the privileges, the prides,
the joys which make it worth living, and also worth
giving. And we also discovered that there is something
more hideous, more atrocious than war or than death;
and that is to live in fear.

press is not only free, it is powerful. That power is
ours. It is the proudest that man can enjoy."

is the voice of the people put into action.
These actions shape and mold the present into a future
of which we can all be proud.

native American has been generally despised by
his white conquerors for his poverty and simplicity.
They forget, perhaps, that his religion forbade
the accumulation of wealth and the enjoyment of
luxury... Furthermore, it was the rule of his
life to share the fruits of his skill and success
with his less fortunate brothers. Thus he kept
his spirit free from the clog of pride, cupidity,
or envy, and carried out, as he believed, the
divine decree—a matter profoundly important to

world of ours... must avoid becoming a community
of dreadful fear and hate, and be, instead, a
proud confederation of mutual trust and respect.

best thing to give to your enemy is forgiveness;
to an opponent, tolerance; to a friend, your heart;
to your child, a good example; to a father, deference;
to your mother, conduct that will make her proud
of you; to yourself, respect; to all men, charity.”
-- Benjamin Franklin
I have been very dispirited. But if we disappear,
we leave the door open to all kinds of abuse.
So I say to my colleagues, “Don’t be too ambitious.
If you look at all the problems in Cambodia
at once, you cannot work. Like you build a house,
you build it brick by brick. If one day you
save only one victim, be happy for a day. The
next day, save two.” Some days we save 10, 20,
100 or 200.” So I say, “Don’t look for quantity,
look for quality. It will take a long time to
advance human rights, but keep moving.” When
I save a child or a woman, I’m happy, because
I remember the little girl of seven I was. It’s
a reward for me to see the new generation of
advocates. They are our future. I am very proud

energy needs while safeguarding the earth's climate.
The urgent question now is, 'Do we have the will?'
At least one city does, and I'm proud to live

am done with great things and big plans, great institutions
and big success. I am for those tiny, invisible loving
human forces that work from individual to individual,
creeping through the crannies of the world like so many
rootlets, or like the capillary oozing of water, which,
if given time, will rend the hardest monuments of pride."
-- William James
now stands as the world's foremost power. We should
be proud: Not since the age of the Romans have one
people achieved such preeminence. But we are not
Romans; we do not seek an empire. We are Americans,
trustees of a vision and a heritage
that commit us to the values of democracy and the
universal cause of human rights." -- Senator John
labor movement is organized upon a principle
that the strong shall help the weak. The strength
of a strong man is a prideful thing, but the
unfortunate thing in life is that strong men
do not remain strong. And it is just as true
of unions and labor organizations as is true
of men and individuals. And whereas today the
craft unions of this country may be able to
stand upon their own feet and like mighty oaks
stand before the gale, defy the lightning, yet
the day may come when those organizations will
not be able to withstand the lightning and the
gale. Now, prepare yourselves by making a contribution
to your less fortunate brethren... Organize

like to see a man proud of the place in which
he lives. I like to see a man live so that his
place will be proud of him.

enemies of peace inhabit with us - avarice, ambition,
envy, anger, and pride;
if these were to be banished, we should infallibly enjoy
am also very proud to be a liberal. Why is that
so terrible these days? The liberals were liberators—they
fought slavery, fought for women to have the right
to vote, fought against Hitler, Stalin, fought
to end segregation, fought to end apartheid. Liberals
put an end to child labor and they gave us the
five day work week! What's to be ashamed of?"
how blind people are! They are horrified by the
torture chambers of the Middle Ages, but their arsenals
fill them with pride!"

same stream of life that runs through my veins night
and day runs through the world and dances in rhythmic
measures. It is the same life that shoots in joy through
the dust of the earth in numberless blades of grass
and breaks into tumultuous waves of leaves and flowers.
It is the same life that is rocked in the ocean-cradle
of birth and of death, in ebb and in flow. I feel my
limbs are made glorious by the touch of this world of
life. And my pride is from the life-throb of ages dancing
in my blood this moment.
-- Rabindranath Tagore
are faced with having to learn again about interdependency
and the need for rootedness after several centuries
of having systematically—and proudly—dismantled our
roots, ties, and traditions. We had grown so tall we
thought we could afford to cut the roots that held us
down, only to discover that the tallest trees need the
most elaborate roots of all."
-- Paul L. Wachtel
in this country is independent and proud. It has not
to ask the patronage of capital, but capital solicits
the aid of labor.

pride, and something to look forward to with hope."
--Oliver G. Wilson
not men then in the pride of power, use the same
arguments that tyrannic kings and venal ministers
have used, and fallaciously assert that women
ought to be subjected because she has always been
so.... It is time to effect a revolution in female
manners -- time to restore to them their lost
dignity.... It is time to separate unchangeable
morals from local manners.
