Arthur C. Brooks Quotes

Please enjoy these encouraging quotes by Arthur C. Brooks.

The battle is on, and nothing less than the soul of America is at stake.
- Arthur C. Brooks

Free enterprise is essentially a formula not just for wealth creation,
but for life satisfaction.
- Arthur C. Brooks

In my book I don't just demonstrate that free enterprise
is the most efficient way of organizing an economy -
which it is.
I also show that it's an expression of American values,
and, thus, that a fight for free enterprise is very
much a fight for our culture.
- Arthur C. Brooks

Whether we look at capitalism, taxes,
business, or government, the data show a clear and consistent pattern:
70 percent of Americans support the free enterprise
system and are unsupportive of big government.
- Arthur C. Brooks

 

As a political independent, I would gladly vote for
any political party dedicated to limited government and entrepreneurship.
- Arthur C. Brooks

The more control you have over your life,
the more responsible you feel for your own success -
or failure.
- Arthur C. Brooks

There is nothing inherently fair about equalizing incomes.
If the government penalizes you for working harder than somebody else,
that is unfair.
If you save your money but retire with the same pension
as a free-spending neighbor,
that is also unfair.
- Arthur C. Brooks

FDR created today's 30 percent coalition.
Obama wants to finish the job by turning it into a
permanent ruling majority.
There's nothing new about the Obama Narrative.
It is the FDR Narrative on steroids.
It is intended to lead to greater statism and political gain.
- Arthur C. Brooks

Yes, free markets tend to produce unequal incomes.
We should not be ashamed of that.
On the contrary, our system is the envy of the world
and should be a source of pride.
- Arthur C. Brooks

The truth is that relative income is not directly related to happiness.
Nonpartisan social-survey data clearly show that the
big driver of happiness is earned success:
a person's belief that he has created value in his
life or the life of others.
- Arthur C. Brooks

If you think spreading money around by force seems
like an odd definition of fairness,
you're not alone.
- Arthur C. Brooks

We will have bigger bureaucracies, bigger labor unions,
and bigger state-run corporations.
It will be harder to be an entrepreneur because of
punitive taxes and regulations.
The rewards of success will be expropriated for the
sake of attaining greater income equality.
- Arthur C. Brooks

The system that enables the most people to earn the
most success is free enterprise,
by matching up people's skills, interests,
and abilities.
In contrast, redistribution simply spreads money around.
Even worse, it attenuates the ability to earn success
by perverting economic incentives.
- Arthur C. Brooks

Is today a day to gather strength from the storm -
a day to to learn life lessons for the next battle?
Or is today a day to sit by the fire
and watch the storm rage outside?
Either way, the storm is just life.
Give thanks for all of Life.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.
- Philo

There are nine requisites for contented living:
HEALTH enough to make work a pleasure;
WEALTH enough to support your needs;
STRENGTH enough to battle with difficulties and forsake them;
GRACE enough to confess your sins and overcome them;
PATIENCE enough to toil until some good is accomplished;
CHARITY enough to see some good in your neighbor;
LOVE enough to move you to be useful and helpful to others;
FAITH enough to make real the things of God;
HOPE enough to remove all anxious fears concerning the future.
- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Pessimism never won any battle.
- Dwight D. Eisenhower

When you are in any contest,
you should work as if there were -
to the very last minute - a chance to lose it.
This is battle, this is politics, this is anything.
- Dwight D. Eisenhower

I honor you, Hero, for you do not play to the crowd.
You play to your own soul.
An audience of one fills the house with its appreciation and applause.
Others follow you, and may attempt to emulate you,
but that is not why you are a hero.
Fame may smile upon you, or it may not.
The world may cheer your name, or you may be the unknown warrior
who rescued comrades in battle,
or taught a young girl how to shed tears of joy.
Whatever you did, you did not do for fame.
If you had, you would not be a Hero.
You are a Hero for your bold courageous inspired action.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Love does not begin and end the way we seem to think it does.
Love is a battle, love is a war; love is a growing up.
- James A. Baldwin

The Wedding March always reminds me of the music
played when soldiers go into battle.
- Heinrich Heine

Americans love to fight.
All real Americans love the sting of battle.
- George S. Patton

The greatest battle of all is simply... Life.
This is no child's game. This is the big one -
the Super Bowl - the Game of all games.
The rules of Life are unwritten and unknown.
Perhaps, one could say that there are no rules.
The Judge has ultimate power.
She can call the game at any time - for any reason.
The penalties in the Game are completely arbitrary -
in both timing and severity.
Penalty for what, we ask?
The Judge is silent.
How can I win the Game?
"You can never win," comes the answer,
"So just take pleasure in playing the Game."
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

It's a never ending battle of making your cars better
and also trying to be better yourself.
- Dale Earnhardt

No one has been barred on account of his race
from fighting or dying for America,
there are no white or colored signs
on the foxholes or graveyards of battle.
- John F. Kennedy

The expert in battle seeks his victory
from strategic advantage
and does not demand it from his men.
- Sun Tzu

There is no glory in battle worth the blood it costs.
- Dwight D. Eisenhower

The battle for the individual rights of women is one of long standing
and none of us should countenance anything which undermines it.
- Eleanor Roosevelt

In preparing for battle I have always found that
plans are useless, but planning is indispensable.
- Dwight D. Eisenhower

Why should we honour those that die upon the field
of battle? A man may show as reckless a courage in
entering into the abyss of himself.
- William Butler Yeats

Peace hath higher tests of manhood, than battle ever knew.
- John Greenleaf Whittier

- Margaret Thatcher

On the contrary, woman is the best equipped fighting
machine that ever went to battle.

If it's a battle between a great, big,
serious novel and a funny novel, the funny novel is doomed.
- Neil Gaiman

I have always preferred conflict of individuals over
the battle of extreme ideologies.
- Robert Ludlum

Shiloh is a wonderfully dramatic battle.
The leader of one side is killed, and the other one is going on to glory,

our courage that will win the final battle.

to do extra battle against because of their color.

Whenever death may surprise us, let it be welcome if
our battle cry has reached even one receptive ear and
another hand reaches out to take up our arms.
- Che Guevara

He tested for 'Battle Cry'.
Paul Newman tested for 'Battle Cry'.
I did nine tests to finally get that role.
- Tab Hunter

A woman watches her body uneasily, as though it were
an unreliable ally in the battle for love.
- Leonard Cohen

There's no doubt about that; it's an uphill battle.

It's a tactic.

The thrill, believe me, is as much in the battle as in the victory.
- David Sarnoff
