Quote by Ronald Reagan
Inflation is as violent as a mugger, as frightening as an armed robber and as deadly as a hit man.
This quote emphasizes the severe impact that inflation can have on an economy. By comparing it to violent criminals, it highlights the destructive nature of rising prices. The metaphor implies that inflation not only steals purchasing power from individuals (like a mugger) but also instills fear and insecurity in the economy (like an armed robber). Additionally, it suggests that inflation can be lethal, causing significant harm and even destabilizing the economy (like a hit man). Overall, the quote serves as a vivid depiction of the dangers and consequences associated with inflation.
Nature is pitiless; she never withdraws her flowers, her music, her fragrance and her sunlight, from before human cruelty or suffering. She overwhelms man by the contrast between divine beauty and social hideousness. She spares him nothing of her loveliness, neither wing or butterfly, nor song of bird; in the midst of murder, vengeance, barbarism, he must feel himself watched by holy things; he cannot escape the immense reproach of universal nature and the implacable serenity of the sky. The deformity of human laws is forced to exhibit itself naked amidst the dazzling rays of eternal beauty. Man breaks and destroys; man lays waste; man kills; but the summer remains summer; the lily remains the lily; and the star remains the star....As though it said to man, 'Behold my work. and yours.
