We live in a time of transition, an uneasy era which is likely to endure for the rest of this century. During the period we may be tempted to abandon some of the time-honored principles and commitments which have been proven during the difficult times of past generations. We must never yield to this temptation. Our American values are not luxuries, but necessities— not the salt in our bread, but the bread itself.

Jimmy Carter

The happy ending is justly scorned as a misrepresentation; for the world, as we know it, as we have seen it, yields but one ending; death, disintegration, dismemberment, and the crucifixion of our heart with the passing of the forms which we have loved.

Joseph Campbell

Laissez Faire was very good sauce for the goose, labor, but was very poor sauce for the gander, capital.

Benjamin Tucker

What's sauce for the gander is sauce for the goose.

Karl Marx

Sauce for a Goose, is Sauce for a Gander.

Thomas (writer) Fuller
