Quote by Benjamin Harrison
We have no commission from God to police the world.
This quote emphasizes that individuals or nations are not entitled or authorized by any higher power, such as God, to assume the role of global law enforcement. It suggests that it is not our duty or responsibility to forcefully intervene or meddle in the affairs of other nations without legitimate cause or justification. Instead, it implies that we should focus on our own responsibilities and obligations, rather than taking on a self-appointed role of moral or political authority on a global scale.
The guy keeps making speeches about redistribution and maybe we ought to do something to businesses that don't invest, their holding too much money. We haven't heard that kind of talk except from pure socialists. Everybody's afraid of the government and there's no need soft peddling it, it's the truth. It is the truth.
Except a living man there is nothing more wonderful than a book! A message to us from the dead, - from human souls whom we never saw, who lived perhaps thousands of miles away; and yet these, on those little sheets of paper, speak to us, teach us, comfort us, open their hearts to us as brothers.
