Welfare reform passed in the 90s worked because states were given maximum authority along with adequate funding. This model can work for the repeal and replacement of Obamacare.
Kim Reynolds
Attractive labels are usually attached to the most dangerous programs, often in the name of public welfare and personal security.

Michelle Lujan Grisham
I have a track record of under-promising and over-delivering, whether it’s on the economy, border protection, welfare reforms.

Walter E. Williams
What we’re putting forward is the most radical reform of the welfare state… for 60 years. I think it will have a transformative effect in making sure that everyone is better off in work and better off working rather than on benefits.
David Cameron
A democratic state is not proven by the welfare of the strong but by the welfare of the weak.

Michael Palin
The sum total of each man’s giving determines the standard of man’s civilization.
Walter Russell
It is shameful for man to rest in ignorance of the structure of his own body, especially when the knowledge of it mainly conduces to his welfare, and directs his application of his own powers.
Philipp Melanchthon
My religion is truth, love and service to God and humanity. Every religion that has come into the world has brought the message of love and brotherhood. Those who are indifferent to the welfare of their fellowmen, whose hearts are empty of love, they do not know the meaning of religion.

Greg Mankiw
The only way to break the cycle of unwed motherhood, fatherless children, poverty, crime, and welfare is to recognize that welfare causes more problems than it cures.
David Boaz
But for the national welfare, it is urgent to realize that the minorities do think, and think about something other than the race problem.

Napoleon Bonaparte
The good of our soul is more important than that of our body; and we have to prefer the spiritual welfare of our neighbor to our bodily comforts. . . If a certain kind of dress constitutes a grave and proximate occasion of sin, and endangers the salvation of your soul and others, it is your duty to give it up.
Pope Pius XII
If a child is given love, he becomes loving … If he’s helped when he needs help, he becomes helpful. And if he has been truly valued at home … he grows up secure enough to look beyond himself to the welfare of others.
Joyce Brothers
Is it a coincidence that in 1998, Barack Obama talks about a majority coalition of welfare recipients and in 2012 we got a record number of Americans on food stamps while he’s president? I don’t think it’s a coincidence.
Rush Limbaugh
We need to empower women. Give women a voice in the decision-making process. Give women a political voice where they can champion, for their own welfare. And, of course, for us. United Nations – organizations, agencies – we need to do our part.
Margaret Chan
Quality child care, health insurance coverage, and training make it possible for former welfare recipients to get, and keep, jobs.

Mark Steyn
Hispanics’ welfare consumption – and their affinity for the Democratic message – will decline over time as they climb the economic ladder.
Heather Mac Donald
In some egregious cases, cities built new stadiums even while their citizens were still paying off old stadiums that had since closed. This is corporate welfare run amok, and a gross misuse of American citizens’ tax money – something the government must treat with respect.
Matt Gaetz
I believe in limited government. I know what the welfare state has done to the black community.
David A. Clarke, Jr.
We live in a society which salves its conscience more by helping the interestingly unfortunate than the dull deserving.

We prefer paychecks to welfare checks for the American people and a robust middle class with rising wages.
Peter Navarro
Here and there awareness is growing that man, far from being the overlord of all creation, is himself part of nature, subject to the same cosmic forces that control all other life. Man’s future welfare and probably even his survival depend upon his learning to live in harmony, rather than in combat, with these forces.
Rachel Carson
Too many people feel that where you start out dictates where you should end up. I was on welfare and just shy of 19 when my first daughter was born, but I was encouraged to take advantage of my ability and drive and remained in school.
Gwen Moore
Every rough sleeper is the product of political decisions that have created a safety net riddled with gaping holes. No one wants to sleep outdoors in sub-zero temperatures, but far too many will, while politicians continue to cut welfare provision and bludgeon councils with austeritymeasures.
Dawn Foster
The true cook is the perfect blend, the only perfect blend, of artist and philosopher. He knows his worth: he holds in his palm the happiness of mankind, the welfare of generations yet unborn.
Norman Douglas
That the government’s power under the Taft-Hartley Act to stop a strike by injunction so clearly strengthens the hand of the employer-even though it is used only when a strike threatens
the national health, welfare, or safety-is a grave blemish and explains much of union resistance to the Act.
Peter Drucker
The 1935 Social Security Act established 65 as the age of eligibility for payouts. But welfare state politics quickly becomes a bidding war, enriching the menu of benefits, so in 1956 Congress entitled women to collect benefits at 62, extending the entitlement to men in 1961.
George Will
One of the greatest dignities of humankind is that each successive generation is invested in the welfare of each new generation.
Fred Rogers
I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws but to repeal them.

The cow is an exceptionally loving and gentle creature. She cries for days when her calf is taken from her. It is a pitiful sound, a pitiful sound.
Helen Weston
I realize that at a certain point if we’re going to change our food system, it’s going to be the next generation that’s going to be critical. This generation is very interested in food issues, very concerned about things like animal welfare and the impact of the food system on the environment.
Michael Pollan

When…we, as individuals, obey laws that direct us to behave for the welfare of the community as a whole, we are indirectly helping to promote the pursuit of happiness by our fellow human beings.
I’d like to find and vote for a candidate, whether Republican or Democrat… that has the best interest in the health and welfare of everybody in this country.
Erin Brockovich
One good Man may take another’s Word, if they so agree, but a whole Nation ought never to trust to any Honesty, but what is built upon Necessity; for unhappy is the People, and their Constitution will be ever precarious, whose Welfare must depend upon the Virtues and Consciences of Ministers and Politicians.
Bernard de Mandeville

Todd Young
We may not realize it, but a crucial step in building a healthy economy is helping people move from welfare to work.
Todd Young
The whole problem is spirituality-not finances. Spiritually strong = welfare strong.
Marion G. Romney
For many of those who had historically supported welfare programs in the broadest sense, it was perfectly reasonable to enact legislation in which poor people were the objects of efforts to assist them.
Barney Frank
Any of the social changes in American history are because people thought there was injustice. We have to show that this corporate welfare and cronyism is unjust – and that it’s not only rigging the system so people get wealthy who don’t deserve to get wealthy.
Charles Koch
The object of government is the welfare of the people. The material progress and prosperity of a nation are desirable chiefly so far as they lead to the moral and material welfare of all good citizens.
Theodore Roosevelt
Organized business has assumed that greater profits would be pretty much of a cure-all, and it has to a major extent ignored the fact that the welfare of business rests upon the welfare of the consumers of a nation; that business or free enterprise will function in a democracy only so long as the democracy functions.
Saul Alinsky
My father worked three jobs, my mother worked two, seven days a week sometimes. And they wouldn’t take welfare or social assistance, they were too proud.
Bill Duke
Corporations are not in business to be social-welfare organizations; they are there to make money.
Benjamin Carson
Any government which made the welfare of men depend on the character of their governors was an illusion.
Daniel J. Boorstin
For years, I have traveled all around the country to promote animal welfare, fighting for policies that will finally eliminate unnecessary animal suffering.
Lara Trump
People think that their vote counts. They go to college, and everything gets mixed up. People stop caring, … They raise the gas prices, but what the Everyman makes and welfare never seem to keep up. The HMO system is so ridiculous. I’m slightly educated. No one wants to hear what Hilary Duff thinks of the economy.
Shia LaBeouf
I agree with the idea of cutting [budget], but it should all be coming out of entitlements for the affluent and not out of domestic discretionary, which is welfare, education, all the stuff the government does, parks, FBI, and it shouldn’t be coming out of Medicaid.
David Brooks
What are our priorities? First, the welfare, the survival of the people. Then, democratic norms and processes which from time to time we have to suspend.

Eunice Kennedy Shriver
True material welfare is never inconsistent with performance of religious obligations.
Mahatma Gandhi
What we apparently have failed to grasp is that, in this new world in which we live, the collective hunger of great masses of people, wherever they may be, will affect our long-range welfare, just as though they were our own people.
Eleanor Roosevelt
Social bonds have given way under the collapse of social protections and the attack on the welfare state. Moreover, all solutions to socially produced problems are now relegated to the mantra of individual solutions.
Henry Giroux
Lord, here is my body; I am very grateful for it; I neglected nothing that belonged to its contents and welfare; but as for my soul, that is lost and cast away forever. I took and thought about it.

Theodore Roosevelt
To establish justice and to promote the general welfare, America does not need the abortion license.
Robert Casey
My mom struggled for a long time growing up poor, and then we were on welfare when I was a kid. So to see her kids, not just me, be successful and making money and happy and healthy and in good relationships – it means so much to her after all that she’s been through.
Andrea Navedo
Most people have forgotten how to live with living creatures, with living systems and that, in turn, is the reason why man, whenever he comes into contact with nature, threatens to kill the natural system in which and from which he live.
Konrad Lorenz
Coercion is as much the tool of the welfare state as it is of communism. The programs and edicts of both are backed by the police force. All of us know this to be true under communism, but it is equally true under our own brand of welfare statism.
Leonard Read
Fiscally, I’m very conservative. I don’t believe in welfare states. I believe in giving people jobs.

Clive Lewis
How do you tell a communist? Well, it’s someone who reads Marx and Lenin. And how do you tell an anti-Communist? It’s someone who understands Marx and Lenin.
Ronald Reagan
I think it’s fair to set limits on housing benefit, so that people on welfare do not end up able to live in better areas than those doing the right thing by finding work.
Chris Grayling
From Scotland to India, and from Silicon Valley to Kenya, policymakers all over the world have become interested in basic income as an answer to poverty, unemployment and the bureaucratic behemoth of the modern welfare state.
Rutger Bregman
As economists bandy about terms like ‘recapitalization,’ ‘credit lines,’ and ‘liquidity,’ families are facing brutal cuts to their social services and welfare payments, losing their homes, wondering how their kids will make their way in the world.
Sharan Burrow
Murderers very often start out by killing and torturing animals as kids.
Robert Ressler
Mulayam Singh Yadav has deceived Muslims by making false promises for their welfare.
Jaya Prada
Exclusively should mean exclusively, and money used for campaign purposes should kept separate from money used for the promotion of social welfare.
Michelle Lujan Grisham
American critics of welfare statism are often surprised to learn that countries like West Germany, with a much more comprehensive welfare state and a statistically larger public sector, have fewer government employees per capita than the United States does.
Robert Kuttner
As the Prime Minister of India, Modiji is as much responsible for the welfare of Punjab as I am and his political affiliations are really not material when it comes to the betterment of any State or its people, including Punjab.
Amarinder Singh
The progressive Left can be in favor of Big Government or population control but not both. The mutual incompatibility is about to plunge Europe into societal collapse. There is no precedent in human history for economic growth on declining human capital – and that’s before anyone invented unsustainable welfare systems.
Mark Steyn
A robin redbreast in a cage Puts all heaven in a rage.
William Blake
The more welfare, the more crime.
James Cook
We should remember in our dealings with animals that they are a sacred trust to us from our Heavenly Father. They are dumb and cannot speak for themselves.
Harriet Beecher Stowe
Your spiritual journey and your spiritual welfare are really dependent on two primary factors: One, your ability to meditate and two, your ability to give of yourself.
Frederick Lenz
In Britain, the centrally prescribed welfare to work system short-changes the young unemployed. Transport, housing and education are over centralised.
David Miliband
Speaking as a black person, welfare is the worst thing that’s ever happened to us.
Charles Evers
Science would be ruined if (like sports) it were to put competition above everything else, and if it were to clarify the rules of competition by withdrawing entirely into narrowly defined specialties. The rare scholars who are nomads-by-choice are essential to the intellectual welfare of the settled disciplines.
Benoit Mandelbrot
It is difficult to understand precisely what the state hopes to achieve by promoting the creation and perpetuation of a subclass of illiterates within our boundaries, surely adding to the problems and costs of unemployment, welfare and crime.
William J. Brennan
Charities should not become the junior partner in the welfare state; whether or not they provide services funded by Government or, indeed, receive grants from Government, they must remain independent and focused on their mission.
William Shawcross
God loves us. He’s watching us, he wants us to succeed, and we’ll know someday that he has not left one thing undone for the eternal welfare of each of us. If we only knew it, there are heavenly hosts pulling for us — friends in heaven that we can’t rememer now, who yearn for our victory.
Ezra Taft Benson
May this plain statement of facts prevail on the friends of the rising generation to interpose for their welfare; that the education of children may no longer be to parent and master a lottery, in which the prizes bear no proportion to the enormous number of blanks.
Joseph Lancaster
The lesson is obvious. True missionaries concentrate on doing the work of Mark 16:15 rather than operating social-welfare programs. True missionaries serve the message of Christ, not the institutions of the church.
K.P. Yohannan
Bush has legitimized a huge expansion of the welfare state, liberalizing immigration, and using force for democratization abroad. All the next Democratic president has to do to finish Bush’s hard work is to raise taxes to pay for it all.
Andrew Sullivan
Out of the blending of human and animal stories comes the theme that I hope is inherent in all my books: that man is an inescapable part of all nature, that its welfare is his welfare, that to survive, he cannot continue acting and regarding himself as a spectator looking on from somewhere outside.
Fred Bodsworth
Religion is a comprehensive concept. According to our learned people, our scholars, to pave the path for public welfare in worldly life and to provide spiritual uplift is part of religion. I think a yogi can do both things quite easily. And I manage to balance both worldly and spiritual concerns.
Yogi Adityanath
The natural tendency of the state is inflation. This statement will shock those accustomed to viewing the state as a committee of the whole nation ardently dispensing the general welfare, but I think it nonetheless true.
Murray Rothbard
We live in a welfare state society – one that is already bloated and overburdened. We cannot continue to absorb and support an endless stream of people who will inevitably need legal residents to subsidize their lives.
Charlie Kirk
We need welfare reform to get people back to work and provide proper support for those that can’t.
Liz Kendall
The state is therefore everyone; the rules within the state are laws which safeguard the welfare of all and which must originate from the welfare of all.
Georg Buchner
Order was only restored in L.A. when it came time for the blacks to pick up their welfare checks three days after rioting began. … What if the checks had never arrived? No doubt the blacks would have fully privatized the welfare state through continued looting. But they were paid off and the violence subsided.
Ron Paul
Acting responsibly is not a matter of strengthening our reason but of deepening our feelings for the welfare of others.
Jostein Gaarder
I challenge every business person in America who has ever complained about the failure of the welfare system to try to hire somebody off welfare. And try hard.
William J. Clinton
The welfare of a nation can scarcely be inferred from a measurement of national income as defined by the GDP.
Simon Kuznets
The historical achievements for my constituency and welfare schemes of the Modi government has touched each and every person and reached across each and every household.
Anurag Thakur
My mum’s amazing. She’s the person I admire most, I think, in her sacrifice to me and my sister and her level of emotional sacrifice to people around her. She takes a high level of personal responsibility for the welfare of people around her.
Jon Richardson
Conservatives are, I think, correct to highlight family stability as a fundamental issue that goes to the welfare of children as much as food stamps or anything else.
Nicholas Kristof
I do hope that all nations can live in complete security and welfare.
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
The true basis of morality is utility; that is, the adaptation of our actions to the promotion of the general welfare and happiness; the endeavour so to rule our lives that we may serve and bless mankind.
Annie Besant
A lot of the Republican rhetoric better than the Democrats’. But when they’re in office, it’s pretty much the same thing. It’s serving their supporters, it’s corporate welfare, it’s cronyism which is so destructive, particularly to the disadvantaged.
Charles Koch
The country will also need ‘new forms of social welfare’ instead of its current system which is excessively centred on pensions.
Giorgio Napolitano
Socialism constitutes a threat to the present and future welfare of the human race, in the sense that neither socialism nor any other known substitute for the market order could sustain the current population of the world.
Friedrich August von Hayek
The man who holds that every human right is secondary to his profit must now give way to the advocate of human welfare.

I believe investing in welfare is an investment in the future and in people.
Park Won-soon
You cannot simultaneously have free immigration and a welfare state.

Our life depends on others so much that at the root of our existence is a fundamental need for love. That is why it is good to cultivate an authentic sense of responsibility and concern for the welfare of others.
Dalai Lama
We passed welfare reform. All of you know I believe we were right to do it.
William J. Clinton
I won’t get involved in businesses that I think cut across any kind of animal welfare issues.
Deborah Meaden
Malefactors of great wealth have arrogantly ignored the public welfare.
Theodore Roosevelt
Anyone who has ever experienced dehumanized life on welfare or any other confidence-shaking dependency knows that a paid job may be preferable to the dole, even when the handout is coming from a family member.
Gloria Steinem
Modi implemented welfare schemes, and U.P. became its major beneficiary in barely two years.
Yogi Adityanath
Many business leaders today view their jobs as entailing responsibility for the welfare of the wider community. These individuals do not define themselves as profit-making machines whose only reason for existing is to satisfy escalating expectation for immediate gain.
Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
I became married at a young age and had two daughters and divorced at 26. I had to go on welfare to make ends meet. I had no way to support myself.
Clarissa Pinkola Estes
Good oil, like good wine, is a gift from the gods. The grape and the olive are among the priceless benefactions of the soil, and were destined, each in its way, to promote the welfare of man.
George Ellwanger
We will get our people off of welfare and back to work – rebuilding our country with American hands and American labor.
Donald Trump
A sort of moral blackmail is exerted from both poles. The underclass, one gathers, should be dulled with charity and welfare provision lest it turn nasty. The upper class must likewise be conciliated by vast handouts, lest it lose the “incentive” to go on generating wealth.
Christopher Hitchens
Must we, under the happy hope of a false tranquility, sacrifice to the people in power the public welfare, and under vain pretence of preserving the peace, abandon the empire to robbers who would plunder it
Claude Adrien Helvetius
The final cause of law is the welfare of society.
Benjamin Cardozo
Baba dropped the stack of food stamps on her desk. “Thank you but I don’t want,” Baba said. “I work always. In Afghanistan I work, in America I work. Thank you very much, Mrs. Dobbins, but I don’t like it free money.”…Baba walked out of the welfare office like a man cured of a tumor.
Khaled Hosseini
Just as an individual of pre-eminent worth transforms democracy into a monarchy of the best man, even so the rule of one man, if in all things it has an eye to the common welfare, is democracy.
Apollonius of Tyana
The wish to spread those opinions that we hold conducive to our own welfare is so deeply rooted in the English character that few of us can escape its influence.
Samuel Butler
Our kids were God’s kids first… We tend to forget this fact, regarding our children as “our” children, as though we have the final say in their health and welfare. We don’t. All people are God’s people, including the small people who sit at our tables.
Max Lucado
Because what happens is, as the economy suffers, tax revenues go down. But unlike businesses, where at least your variable costs go down, in government your variable costs go up: unemployment insurance, workmen’s compensation, health care benefits, welfare, you name it.
Meg Whitman
We’re seeing so many people come around and say, “Listen, we want a real conservative. We don’t want a Washington dealmaker who will support Democrats and cut deals to grow government and give into the cronyism and corporate welfare.”

Gloria Allred
My father died when I was nine and a half. We were on relief for two years. They call it welfare now, but it was relief then… I never forgot the generosity of New York.
Larry King
It just struck me as obvious that a state has the right to restrict its welfare benefits only to those people who are U.S. citizens or are visiting the state legally.
Kris Kobach
The sheer number of government employees and welfare recipients effectively transforms the purpose of government from maintaining order to confiscating as much as possible from vulnerable taxpayers.
James Bovard
The welfare of Catalonia is only possible outside of Spain.
Carles Puigdemont
The tendency of welfare spending in the United States has been to increase at an exponential rate.
Henry Hazlitt

Louis Bromfield
The effect of violent dislike between groups has always created an indifference to the welfare and honor of the state.
Thomas B. Macaulay
At the end of the day, the best sanctuaries are places like the Performing Animal Welfare Society in Northern California, where he really provides his tigers large spaces. And there are people in the private sector that do a really good job with animals.
Eric Goode
Modern economics and the welfare state borrowed heavily on the future.
Gregory Benford

George Washington
Do you know what the Negro is? Animal right out of the jungle. Passion. Welfare. Easy life. That’s the Negro.
Leander Perez

J. D. Vance
All branches of our government today are controlled by individuals who use their power to undermine liberty and enhance the welfare/warfare state-and frequently their own wealth and power.
Ron Paul
Indeed, in US politics, ‘poverty’, along with ‘welfare’, ‘unwed mothers’ and ‘crime’, became code words for blacks.
Frances Fox Piven
The vast majority of Americans want a government that creates the conditions for them to have a chance to get into the middle class, the kind of growth and the kind of educational opportunities. Most people would – the vast majority of Americans would much rather have a job that pays more than a welfare check.
Marco Rubio
Marriage is not for individual happiness, but for the welfare of the nation and the caste.
Swami Vivekananda
As Public Advocate for the City of New York, I will be working with the Administration for Children’s Services and others to bring about necessary reforms – and ensure that our city meets its most solemn responsibility – protecting the welfare of our children.
Letitia James
When I left, there were over 1 million fewer people on welfare in New York state than when I took office, replacing dependency with opportunity.
George Pataki
As far as unwed mothers on welfare are concerned, it seems to me that they must be capable of some other form of labor.
Al Capp
The welfare state is collapsing all around us. There are people that realize that we can’t go on this way, but I’m not sure how many people realize how close we are to the collapse of the U.S. financial system.
Rush Limbaugh
Disability has become a form of permanent welfare for a lot of folks. It’s not that hard to prove a mental illness or mental issues or pain issues.
Nina Easton
When any welfare scheme is being proposed, its political sponsors always dwell on what a generous and compassionate government should pay to Paul; they neglect to mention that this additional money must be seized from Peter.
Henry Hazlitt
The stabilizing influence of the modern social welfare state emerged only after World War II, nearly 200 years on from the 18th-century beginnings of the Industrial Revolution.
Moshe Vardi
When Hillary Clinton was in the Clinton White House as first lady, the left – the right accused her of being wide eyed radical lesbian feminist and in some issues, like welfare reform, she pushed back against the new .
David Corn
By the age of 3, children from wealthier households hear, on average, about 500,000 encouragements and 80,000 discouragements. The ratio is reversed in households on welfare.
Jonah Lehrer
I believe that the worst thing the liberals did in this country was the Lyndon Johnson welfare system, which broke up millions of marriages by funneling taxpayers’ money solely to the woman. That made the father and husband irrelevant.
Phyllis Schlafly
Other-oriented feelings congruent with the perceived welfare of another person.
Daniel Batson
The welfare of our children is our main concern, and their best interests are our first priority.
Eddie Murphy
Yet, when Republicans were finally able to push through tough policies on crime and welfare which they’d supported for decades, they were magnificent successes for the entire country, but especially for black people. Release us, and great things will happen!
Ann Coulter
I work so I don’t need to make rent through my songs, and I think if more people engaged with music without needing it to provide for their welfare, you’re not beholden to anyone.
Ian MacKaye
Within the character of the citizen, lies the welfare of the nation.
Marcus Tullius Cicero
I imagine the Wall Street protesters would embrace Greece’s unusually generous benefits and massive welfare state, which were put in place by Socialist Prime Minister Andreas Papandreou in the 1980s.
Kayleigh McEnany
The most important social welfare program in America is a job.
Newt Gingrich
For the protection of state and welfare of the people, a ruler shold collect all types of wealth. By suing devices of sama, dama , danda, bheda , he shold increase income of the state, strong administration helps in collecting different type of taxes fro exchequer.
The awful wrongs and sufferings forced upon the innocent, helpless, faithful animal race form the blackest chapter in the whole world’s history.
R. Edward Freeman
Welfare is … the victim of national compassion fatigue.
Ellen Goodman
Justice that is not rooted in equity, in social welfare, and in community is not justice at all.
DeRay Mckesson
Each and every one of you should consider himself to be a trustee for the welfare of the rest of his fellow labourers and not be self-seeking.
Mahatma Gandhi
Technology should be used for better purposes, for people’s overall welfare and development of state and country, instead of misusing it to win elections.
N. Chandrababu Naidu
As more and more money is coming into the formal economy, one can look at more attractive tax rates and lower tax slabs. Even if half the people who were in the informal sector move in to the formal economy and more taxes get collected, more money can be spent on the welfare.
Piyush Goyal
We cannot have peace among men whose hearts find delight in killing any living creature.
Rachel Carson
Can’t trust a fascist–truth is always your first sacrifice to the welfare of the state
Matthew Woodring Stover
As for the end of the universe…I say let it come as it will, in ice, fire, or darkness. What did the universe ever do for me that I should mind its welfare?
Stephen King
When I was twelve, I went hunting with my father and we shot a bird. He was laying there and something struck me. Why do we call this fun to kill this creature [who] was as happy as I was when I woke up this morning.
Marv Levy
The balance of private good and general welfare is at the bottom of civilized morals but the morals of the Heroic Age are founded on individuality, and on nothing else.
Lascelles Abercrombie
Nature is our biggest ally in poverty reduction and achieving human welfare
Tony Juniper
In spite of its glowing talk about the welfare of the masses, Communism’s methods and philosophy strip man of his dignity and worth, leaving him as little more than a depersonalized cog in the ever-turning wheel of the state.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
I have fond memories of the Grand National, but in recent years, as I have become more committed to animal welfare, I have grown increasingly uncomfortable about an event that every year results in the deaths of horses.
John Bishop
I think doctors care very deeply about their patients, but when they organize into the AMA, their responsibility is to the welfare of doctors, and quite often, these lobbying groups are the only ones that are heard in the state capitols and in the capitol of our country.
Jimmy Carter
Mercy requires that we learn to love others, to value their welfare more than our own!
John Hagee
Rap makes the conservative argument about what happens when family life is eroded either by welfare and drugs, or by the stresses and indulgences of middle-class life.
Shelby Steele
The black family survived centuries of slavery and generations of Jim Crow, but it has disintegrated in the wake of the liberals’ expansion of the welfare state.
Thomas Sowell
Bipartisan democracy presupposes the individual, whose welfare is identical with that of the community in which he lives, the absence of coherent social classes, a basic uniformity of interest throughout.
Learned Hand
Who can believe that there is no soul behind those luminous eyes!
Theophile Gautier
There will come a time when the world will look back to modern vivisection in the name of science, as they do now to burning at the stake in the name of religion.
Kathryn Bigelow
People on welfare are getting a price cut to join Amazon Prime, which means you’re paying for that. So the food stamp recipients will now get Amazon Prime for $5.99 a month. Free shipping, unlimited streaming of movies and TV shows, which means that these people have to have internet accessibility.
Rush Limbaugh
The greatest obstacle to the welfare state is not greed but private charity that makes the welfare state irrelevant; the greatest obstacle to re-education of children in the name of the collective is allegiance to a higher power. More than that, the greatest obstacle to the state as god is an actual God above the state.
Ben Shapiro
The man who practises unselfishness, who is genuinely interested in the welfare of others, who feels it a privilege to have the power to do a fellow-creature a kindness – even though polished manners and a gracious presence may be absent – will be an elevating influence wherever he goes.
Orison Swett Marden
What would you do if your country’s welfare depended on labor? When a ship is in a storm it requires one captain.
Fritz Sauckel
The Citizens United ruling opened the door for tax-exempt social welfare organizations to spend substantial portions of their funds on campaign activities, without having to disclose where that money came from.
Michelle Lujan Grisham
Be concerned with the welfare of others without any sense of self-importance that one is better because one meditates or leads a certain type of life.
Frederick Lenz
Mexico urgently needs a series of structural reforms that will detonate its true economic potential and generate more public welfare.
Enrique Pena Nieto
Originally, I came from Texas, and we lived on – I guess you’d call it welfare, what we called relief.
Carol Burnett
Now if you are condemned to life on welfare, I’m not so sure that being in a bigger welfare village is that much better than being in a smaller welfare village.
Tony Abbott
I disagree with those who say welfare is a waste of money. It’s a good means to creating new jobs.
Park Won-soon
It will be politics that determines the material welfare of future generations: the pace at which we advance toward “our destination of economic bliss,” andnperhaps, whether we continue to advance at all.
Eban Goodstein
At The Humane Society of the United States, we know how difficult it is to prevent cruelty to animals in movies because so many of the animal welfare problems occur behind the scenes in training, housing, and transportation, long before the animals get on the set.
Wayne Pacelle
There is no other planning for freedom and general welfare than to let the market system work.
Ludwig von Mises
The welfare state is an assault on families.
Larry Elder
Our ideal is to make her ever stronger and better and finer, because in that way alone, as we believe, can she be of the greatest service to the world’s peace and to the welfare of mankind.
Henry Cabot Lodge
Divorce is marital welfare.It’s just couples asking society to bail them out because they didn’t do enough research before they got married.
Stephen Colbert
Liberals measure compassion by how many people are given welfare. Conservatives measure compassion by how many people no longer need it.
Rush Limbaugh
Welfare is the basic cause of the deleterious cultural changes we have witnessed in the West over the past 60 years.
Martin Durkin
As a result of the Left’s sympathetic views of pacifism and because almost no welfare state can afford a strong military, European countries rely on America to fight the world’s evil, and even to defend them
Dennis Prager
REVOLUTION, n. In politics, an abrupt change in the form of misgovernment. . . . the substitution of the rule of an Administration for that of a Ministry, whereby the welfare and happiness of the people were advanced a full half-inch.
Ambrose Bierce
But the general welfare must restrict and regulate the exertions of the individuals, as the individuals must derive a supply of their strength from social power.
Friedrich List
Liberal child welfare experts decided that child abuse was not evidence of a moral or character flaw in the abusing parent. Instead, like poverty, crime, and homelessness, child abuse came to be viewed as evidence of a societal failure.
Mona Charen
When individuals change, society will change. And when society changes, the whole world will change. The welfare of the individual is bound up with the welfare of society as a whole.
Sathya Sai Baba
I do have a staff of what some people would consider to be very attractive, chic women. They are not on the staff because they are attractive and chic but because they care about the welfare of others.
Frederick Lenz
Given the difficulty of resisting such temptations over the longer run, a proper concern for the welfare of congressional souls may well be the ultimate argument in favor of term limitations.
James L. Buckley
I would never call our country the welfare system for Mexico.
Kevin de Leon
Not to discontinue our allegiance, in this case, would be to join with the sovereign in promoting the slavery and misery of that society, the welfare of which, we ourselves, as well as our sovereign, are indispensably obliged to secure and promote, as far as in us lies.
Jonathan Mayhew
We will be remembered not for the power of our weapons but for the power of our compassion, our dedication to human welfare.
Hubert H. Humphrey
It is impossible to think about the welfare of the world unless the condition of women is improved. It is impossible for a bird to fly on only one wing.
Swami Vivekananda
The ‘Welfare Reform and Work’ Bill does nothing to address low wages, or underemployment, and I haven’t even got started on how it undermines the provision of affordable housing.
Emily Thornberry
The well-being and welfare of children should always be our focus.
Todd Tiahrt
Sooner or later we’ve got to tie the saving of the natural world to our own public welfare.
Jim Fowler
The tax money belongs to the taxpayers. It doesn’t belong to the bureaucracy. And government is not a welfare system.
Bruce Rauner
Due to the reliance on the old heavy industries in many parts of the country, it makes perfect sense that we need to spend more money per head of population on welfare support in Scotland.
Iain Duncan Smith
I want to help communities put welfare recipients to work right now, without delay, repairing schools, making their neighborhoods clean and safe, making them shine again. There’s lots of work to be done out there. Our cities can find ways to put people to work and bring dignity and strength back to these families.
William J. Clinton
Specialization makes the welfare of the society vulnerable to the market and to political forces beyond national control.
Robert Gilpin
Ambition that centers on the glory of God and welfare of the church is a mighty force for good.
J. Oswald Sanders
If the people cannot trust their government to do the job for which it exists – to protect them and to promote their common welfare – all else is lost.
Barack Obama
In Europe, nothing is certain except death and welfare, and why let the former get in the way of the latter?
Mark Steyn
In the old world that is passing, in the new world that is coming, national efficiency has been and will be a controlling factor in national safety and welfare
Gifford Pinchot
It will be hard to convince people that their welfare is safe in the hands of a federal government when they feel themselves the victims of unjust sectional discrimination.
Jeannette Rankin
Autonomous people, nations, and systems can promote each other’s welfare; they do not have to fight each other like those whose inner insecurity and immaturity continually demand the demarcation of limits and postures of intimidation.
Christa Wolf
While advocates of legalized gambling say it brings in revenues needed for education and other uses, it actually has led to higher taxes, loss of jobs, economic disruption of non-gambling businesses, increased crime and higher social-welfare costs
John Warren Kindt
The test of a democracy is not the magnificence of buildings or the speed of automobiles or the efficiency of air transportation, but rather the care given to the welfare of all the people.
Helen Keller
Some people think that welfare reform should have hurt Bill Clinton with black voters.
P. J. O’Rourke
I understand welfare because I lived it. I understand the difference between a want and a need. The Republican Party promised to bring welfare change. We must deliver on this promise.
Paul LePage
I don’t think you ought to walk into this country one day, and the first stop you make is the welfare office.
Sonny Perdue
Private sincerity is a public welfare.
C. A. Bartol
The secret teaching was the bodhisattva ideal, to live for others, for the welfare of all beings. That’s enlightenment, not some flashy state of luminosity.
Frederick Lenz
We were a single-parent household for a while. It was just my mom, me, and my brother. We were on welfare for about a year and a half. But I remember my mom never complained, and we never wanted for anything. She always made ends meet and she’s been the rock for the family. She instilled in me work ethic and toughness.
Tony Gonzalez
Every time you cut programs, you take away a person who has a vested interest in high taxes and you put him on the tax rolls and make him a taxpayer. A farmer on subsidies is part welfare bum, whereas a free-market farmer is a small businessman with a gun.
Grover Norquist
I believe that the Welfare State redistributes poverty and reduces income. As Karl Kraus once said of psychoanalysis, the Welfare State is the disease which it purports to cure.
Arnold Kling
The issue I highlight in the book is welfare reform.
Robert Scheer
No matter what happens in public—no matter what—don’t doubt that I love you and care about your welfare . . . as much as I am able.
Charlaine Harris
No society of nations, no people within a nation, no family can benefit through mutual aid unless good will exceeds ill will; unless the spirit of cooperation surpasses antagonism; unless we all see and act as though the other man’s welfare determines our own welfare.
Henry Ford II
It was such a struggle for me to make it off welfare. I was getting $630 a month for myself and my children with no support from their fathers. The rent was $600 a month, and if you got a job, they took it out of your welfare.
Allison Anders
…the case for individual freedom rests largely on the recognition of the inevitable and universal ignorance of all of us concerning a great many of the factors on which the achievements of our ends and welfare depend.
Friedrich August von Hayek
I am a very simple man. I am a man first, an artist second. My first obligation is to the welfare of my fellow man. I will endeavour to meet this obligation through music, since it transcends language, politics and national boundaries.
Pablo Casals
A hundred welfare programs, spending more and more billions, lead to chronic budget deficits, which lead to increased paper-money issues, which lead to higher prices.
Henry Hazlitt
Opinion polls consistently show that only about 5 percent of blacks have sensible political opinions, i.e. support the free market, individual liberty, and the end of welfare and affirmative action.
Ron Paul
The world before 1914 was already a world in which the welfare of each individual nation was inextricably bound up with the prosperity of the whole community of nations.
Arthur Henderson
Britain cannot afford to allow a culture of Left-wing-dominated, single-issue activism to hold back our country from investing in infrastructure and new sources of energy and from bringing down the cost of our welfare state.
Chris Grayling
When I was 23, I founded an organization called Dress for Success, which is now in more than 100 cities in 8 countries and has helped a million women transition from welfare to work.
Nancy Lublin
Before they got vengeful, conservatives had some useful points to make about welfare. Government ‘help’ is too often guilt-assuaging gesture. It creates layers of wasteful bureaucracy. Too much help of the wrong sort creates a culture of dependency that swamps our ability to provide.
Donella Meadows
Healthcare is the cornerstone of the socialist state. It is the crown jewel of the welfare state.
Monica Crowley
It is, the most beautiful truth in morals that we have no such thing as a distinct or divided interest from our race. In their welfare is ours, and by choosing the broadest paths to effect their happiness we choose the surest and the shortest to our own.
Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton
For a long time the Conservative party gave the impression of not being terribly interested in the people who were on welfare and that we might just view it as a drain on taxpayer resources.
David Gauke
This welfare for wealthy companies wastes taxpayer dollars, harms the environment, and makes a mockery of the recent reductions in federal social spending programs.
Ralph Nader
Write in the kitchen, lock yourself up in the bathroom. Write on the bus or the welfare line, on the job or during meals.
Gloria E. AnzaldГєa
America has granted every wish of black Americans. It has made government the head of the black family; it has integrated the schools and neighborhoods; it has given blacks welfare and affirmative action; it has even apologized through Bill Clinton. There is simply nothing else that America can or should do.
Jesse Lee Peterson
There’s more than a few remnants left in German welfare policy today. Many Germans eagerly condemn Hitler’s fascism but won’t examine the other reasons why the Third Reich succeeded for a season.
Suzanne Fields
It is true that the welfare-statists are not socialists, that they never advocated or intended the socialization of private property, that they want to ‘preserve’ private property-with government control of its use and disposal. But that is the fundamental characteristic of fascism.
Ayn Rand
My parents were reasonably affluent in Kabul. In the States, we were on welfare. My mom became a waitress, and my dad became a driving instructor. That part of the American immigrant experience applies to people of any nationality.
Khaled Hosseini
Now, mark my words. So long as we are a young and virtuous people, this instument will bind us together in mutual interests, mutual welfare, and mutual happiness. But when we become old and corrupt, it will bind no longer.
Alexander Hamilton
We will know our forgiveness is complete when we have a genuine desire for the welfare of the people who have wronged us.
Virginia H. Pearce
The welfare system in the United States is vile.
Daniel Keys Moran
I believe that Islam is a faith of progress and welfare.
Nawaz Sharif
Genomic science, as the newest frontier in scholarly research, is throwing open the door to a revolutionary way of approaching our health, the health and welfare of animals, and the sustainability of our environment.
John Sharp
I look at my people, and I look at those who control them – the political elite. And the sad thing is that the elites are just not interested in the welfare of the people.
Youssou N’Dour
The belief that we are defending the highest good of the mothers of our race and the ultimate welfare of society makes every sacrifice seem trivial, every duty a pleasure.
Carrie Chapman Catt
We want the active and zealous help of every man far-sighted enough to realize the importance from the standpoint of the nation’s welfare in the future of preserving the forests.
Theodore Roosevelt
So it’s a mistake for someone to think that they bailed New York out. They did assist us, for which we are grateful, but it’s a mistake to say we bailed New York out by giving them a grant of money to help those poor people who throw it away on welfare.
David Dinkins
‎”I feel certain that Conservatism is through unless Conservatives can demonstrate and communicate the difference between being concerned with [the unemployed, the sick without medical care, human welfare, etc.] and believing that the federal government is the proper agent for their solution.
Barry Goldwater
A welfare state, properly conceived, can be an integral part of a conservative society.
Irving Kristol
If what I read doesn’t reflect my life – whether I’m gay or Latino or on welfare – doesn’t that really mean that my life is not valuable?
Walter Dean Myers
South Vietnam had to be built from scratch and, from the very beginning, depended far too much on the Western superpowers. As in the case of a person on public welfare, this dependency, which became greater with each day, was quite difficult to shake.
Nguyen Cao Ky
The self-bound individual always forgets that his self would be safeguarded better and automatically the more he prepares himself for the welfare of mankind, and that in this respect no limits are set for him.
Alfred Adler
There are no free lunches on welfare.
Joseph A. Califano, Jr.
We can develop a social vaccine (Self-esteem). We can outgrow our past failures – our lives of crime and violence, alcohol and drug abuse, premature pregnancy, child abuse, chronic dependency on welfare, and education failure.
John Vasconcellos
Mystical references to society and its programs to help may warm the hearts of the gullible but what it really means is putting more power in the hands of bureaucrats.
Thomas Sowell
I just remember one girl really getting me on the field and beating the holy crap out of me. I never to this day know why. And then people used to be funny because we were on welfare. People used to make fun of you. But I used to get school dinners so I thought it was great, I got a hot meal every day.
Shirley Ballas
But for we could not know right from wrong. All things most desirable for man’s welfare… are to be found portrayed in it.
James A. Garfield
Is there any possibility of getting the super Welfare State’s honey and avoiding the sting?
C. S. Lewis
Compassion is good but politicians have turned compassion into the welfare state.
Thomas Sowell
Quite the most Christian thing that has happened in my lifetime is the Welfare State.
Donald Soper, Baron Soper
I came from nothing. I came from the projects and welfare and ended up a millionaire with no frame of reference. I was bound to hit a wall sooner or later.
Iyanla Vanzant
When I was asked: “Will shame do it?” Meaning: Will welfare people be shamed into getting respectable work? And I said that shame plays the biggest role there is: The biggest shame is that there is so much abundance around but that so many have so little and so few have so much. That’s the shame.
Studs Terkel
Welfare reform was a good-faith effort to break the cycle of intergenerational dependence.
Heather Mac Donald
Only those who are ideologically opposed to military programs think of the defense budget as the first and best place to get resources for social welfare needs.
Herman Kahn
Collective insurance policies and social protections have given way to the forces of economic deregulation, the transformation of the welfare state into punitive workfare programs, the privatization of public goods and an appeal to individual accountability as a substitute for social responsibility.
Henry Giroux
My mom was on welfare and the occasional food stamp, but I have never participated in any of those governmental programs, even the ones that kind of work like education, scholarships and whatever, and I managed to do just fine.
Adam Carolla
The Constitution authorizes Congress to tax Americans to provide for the common defense and promote the general welfare. But in Washington, the professional political class has hijacked that authority to rig up a tax code that provides for the well-being of Washington, not the country.
Josh Hawley
It is imperative for our own safety and welfare and for the sake of the economy that we put COVID-19 behind us and get on with our lives.
Kay Ivey
Over 5,000 years, states have made surprisingly consistent claims about their duties. They have promised to protect people from threats; promote their welfare; deliver justice and also, perhaps less obviously, uphold truth – originally truths about the cosmos, and more recently truths drawn from reason and knowledge.
Geoff Mulgan
Concern for one?s own welfare and prosperity should not blind one to one?s social obligations or spiritual destiny?.A society in which the individuals are concerned only about material welfare will not be able to achieve harmony and peace.
Sathya Sai Baba
The story of Joseph in Egypt and of the seven fat and the seven lean years has passed into the homely wisdom of the ages; but our economic thinking seems to have lost contact with so simple and basic approach to prudent management of a nations welfare.
Benjamin Graham
Anything can be used for or against the welfare of women – or the welfare of anyone – depending on who controls it.
Gloria Steinem
‘Blessed are the poor in spirit, for they shall see God’ suggested to me a heavenly welfare program for the meek. Today that saying reveals an astute insight into egotism, about how those with swollen pride or vanity cannot see anything larger than themselves.
Huston Smith
Welfare programs as instruments of manipulation ultimately serve the end of conquest. They act as an anesthetic, distracting the oppressed from the true causes of their problems and from the concrete solutions of these problems.
Paulo Freire
Actually I do believe we need a proper licensed regime that works better and is much more focused on animal welfare.
Andrea Leadsom
We oppose the benefit cap. We oppose social cleansing. We will bring the welfare bill down by controlling rents and boosting wages, not by impoverishing families and socially cleansing our communities.
Jeremy Corbyn
All the corporate welfare, yeah, it goes from cash payments to debt, to regulations on the competitors, to restrictions on trade, to mandates. You name it, anything so that business doesn’t have to do a better job of creating value for others – they can just get the system in their favor.
Charles Koch
As long as we place millions of Indians at the centre of our thought process, as long as we think of their welfare, their future, their opportunities for self-realisation we are on the right track.
Mukesh Ambani
My views on everything from welfare to a balanced budget to affirmative action can be traced to what Buddy and Helen Watts taught me as a young boy growing up poor but proud in Eufaula.
J. C. Watts
Speaker Newt Gingrich says that what is wrong with the present system is not that people abuse welfare but that welfare abuses people.
Daniel Schorr
PM Modi has provided visionary leadership with his focus on the welfare of the poor and inclusive nature taking along his whole team, including states, parties, all schools of thought, all sections of society.
Piyush Goyal
The Nobel prizes memorialize Alfred Nobel’s faith in the contribution that human thought, directed to science and art, can make to human welfare.
Herbert A. Simon
The issue for us is trusting God enough to trust also His timing. If we can truly believe He has our welfare at heart, may we not let His plans unfold as He thinks best?
Neal A. Maxwell
The welfare state is an enemy of private property. The excessive taxation used to support the welfare state is extremely dangerous.
Charles A. Murray
The revolution must end and the republic must begin. In our constitution, right must take the place of duty, welfare that of virtue, and self-defense that of punishment. Everyone must be able to prevail and to live according to one’s own nature.
Georg Buchner
The cradle-to-grave welfare state diminishes individual initiative and can breed a pervasive sclerosis.
Jacob Weisberg
The long-term cost of a welfare society is the infantilization of the population.
Mark Steyn
The old welfare system was hurting people by discouraging work and marriage. Welfare reform, and now this legislation, will build on the understanding that work and strong families are the foundation upon which we build our future.
Jim Talent
In truth, the world is now a seamless web from which no nation, large or small, young or old, can disassociate itself. Every attitude and every action of every nation can affect the welfare and security of every other nation around the globe.
Robert Kennedy
Experts and the educated elite have replaced what worked with what sounded good. Society was far more civilized before they took over our schools, prisons, welfare programs, police departments and courts. It’s high time we ran these people out of our lives and went back to common sense.
Walter E. Williams
Even as a little seed, I could see his plan for me. Stranded on welfare, another broken family.
Tupac Shakur
Ages of experience have taught humanity that the commitment of a husband and wife to love and to serve one another promotes the welfare of children and the stability of society.
Jack Kingston
I’m not the Eritrean welfare minister and not the Sudanese labor minister.
Eli Yishai
I thought the function of the government was to promote the general welfare, not to provide it.
Ronald Reagan
What if all the forces of society were bent upon developing [poor] children? What if society’s business were making people insteadof profits? How much of their creative beauty of spirit would remain unquenched through the years? How much of this responsiveness would follow them through life?
Mary Heaton Vorse
The collection of taxes which are not absolutely required, which do not beyond reasonable doubt contribute to public welfare, is only a species of legalized larceny. Under this Republic the rewards of industry belong to those who earn them.
Calvin Coolidge
An indictment of entitlements has to focus on the huge ‘social wealth’ that the welfare state creates at the stroke of the pen. Yet statistical tests of the effects of welfare spending on employment yield erratic results.
Edmund Phelps
The more you can increase fear of drugs and crime, welfare mothers, immigrants and aliens, the more you control all the people.
Noam Chomsky
I am a very instinctive Conservative. I have created a welfare system where it pays to work. I have created independent schools within the state sector bringing excellence to children wherever they are.
David Cameron
Meaningful work, not welfare, is every American’s hope, and we have a continuing responsibility to make those hopes a lasting reality.
Ronald Reagan
Legislation can neither be wise nor just which seeks the welfare of a single interest at the expense and to the injury of many and varied interests.
Andrew Johnson
Having been issued the false prospectus of happiness through unlimited sex, modern man concludes, when he is not happy with his life, that his sex has not been unlimited enough. If welfare does not eliminate squalor, we need more welfare; if sex does not bring happiness, we need more sex.
Anthony Daniels
The fact of the matter is that when governments fail – as the Tories have done – to tackle the root causes of working peoples’ need for welfare support, like low pay and high rents, the number of working people relying on benefits increases.
Emily Thornberry
One of the main effects (I will not say purposes) of orthodox traditional economics was … a plan for explaining to the privileged class that their position was morally right and was necessary for the welfare of society.
Joan Robinson
I imagine an America that can actually change. That we become a nation that prospers again but without pillaging the resources of nations that make their people hate us. That we become a nation that, as the constitution says in its preamble, its very first paragraph, ‘promotes the general welfare’ of its people.
Richard Schiff
Germany’s population is getting older and older and smaller and smaller. To be able to finance our welfare system over the long term, we need more women in the workforce, more children and more immigrants.
Paul Achleitner
We need to make sure that people are progressively better off in work than they would be on welfare.
Grant Shapps
After the 1970s, we accomplished economic development rapidly. But the side effect of that was high stress levels or the gap between the rich and poor. And these issues call on me to focus on the welfare and quality of life of the citizens.
Park Won-soon
During the Civil War, the fledgling Republican Party constructed the nation’s first activist government, using taxes to fund social welfare legislation for the first time in American history.
Heather Cox Richardson
Girls should be brought up to be comrades and helpers, not to be dolls. They should take a real and not a visionary share in the welfare of the nation.
Robert Baden-Powell
Jews know this in their bones. Our community could not exist for a day without its volunteers. They are the lifeblood of our organizations, whether they involve welfare, youth, education, care of the sick and elderly, or even protection against violence and abuse.
Jonathan Sacks
No increase in the welfare of the member of society can result from the availability of an additional quantity of money.
Ludwig von Mises
It is statesmanlike for the administration and Congress to look to our nation’s welfare beyond their terms in office.
Nick Clooney
My fundamental concern about the role of faith groups in providing social provision is democratic: how do we hold them to account? To whom are they responsible? How do we, the public, the recipients of welfare, punish them if they make mistakes or become corrupt?
Mehdi Hasan
But did the Founding Fathers ever intend for the federal government to involve itself in education, health care or retirement benefits? The answer, quite clearly, is no. The Constitution, in Article I, Section 8 – which contains the general welfare clause – seeks to restrain federal government, not expand it.
Larry Elder
My mom was a single mother in the South Bronx living in adverse conditions. Seeing her struggles to get herself off of welfare and get back into the workplace and give me and my sister a better life – it’s an inspiration for me.
Andrea Navedo
Greatness consists in deciding only what is necessary for the welfare of the country and making straight for the goal.
Mustafa Kemal Ataturk
In Europe there’s an dangerous growth of ultra xenophobia which is pretty threatening to any one who remembers the history of Europe… and an attack on the remnants of the welfare state. It’s hard to interpret the austerity-in-the-midst-of-recession policy as anything other than attack on the social contract.
Noam Chomsky
There are jobs that American citizens will not do. We can talk about why that is. We can talk about how our welfare state is broken, how we encourage people not to work, but that doesn’t help the farmer pick his peaches this summer.
Mick Mulvaney
We talked about many issues, like welfare, is it the way of life or hand up? Talked about size of government, how much should it tax families and small businesses? And when we left that lunch, we got in the car and I looked over at Chuck and said, ‘I’ll be damned. we’re Republicans.’
Susana Martinez
We are moving people from welfare to work. On welfare, we launch a quiet revolution.
William J. Clinton
Presidents Reagan and the first George Bush never used the vile language of some Trump supporters, but both blamed scarce resources and decaying communities on ‘welfare queens’ and black criminals like Willie Horton.
Stephanie Coontz
The balance of private good and general welfare is at the bottom of civilized morals; but the morals of the Heroic Age are founded on individuality, and on nothing else.
Lascelles Abercrombie
Climate change will impact most heavily on the disadvantaged. If we don’t address these impacts, as well as growing income inequalities, we are marching blindly toward major breakdowns in security, governance, and public welfare.
Wesley K. Wark
We must have a welfare system that we can afford, which will mean giving greater attention to directing the welfare program toward its primary purposes and its intended beneficiaries.
Michael Portillo
The long arc of history that recounts the Catholic Church’s embrace of people of all faiths and none in providing health, education, and welfare in society is as incontestable as it is impressive.
Blase J. Cupich
Man errs not that he deems His welfare his true aim, He errs because he dreams The world does but exist that welfare to bestow.
Matthew Arnold
There’s a good reason why you’ve probably never heard of President Trump’s success in promoting animal welfare – the media are desperate to move on from any story that humanizes this president.
Lara Trump
The 1996 welfare reform law, for the first time, connected welfare benefits with an expectation that recipients would work or participate in training. That work requirement led to record increases in employment and earnings and a record decrease in poverty and welfare dependence after it was enacted.
Charles Boustany
It would take little more than $50 billion to raise every poor person above the official poverty line, yet the percentage of the population classified as poor hardly budges, while annual welfare spending amounts to four times that much. Where’s the money going?
Robert Higgs
The way the [welfare] programs are organized, poor people are only paid to do things that are counter-productive – such as breaking up their families, such as not earning above a certain level of income.
Thomas Sowell
There’s a thing called a ‘welfare cliff,’ and what happens is you get up to a threshold – which is a very firm line – and if you jump over it, then you lose all of your benefits.
Stephanie Land
A well-designed welfare state can actually encourage people to take chances with their jobs and be more, not less, open to changes.
Ha-Joon Chang
We need to quit subsidizing the costs for illegal immigrants’ residency in America immediately. How long will we allow them to siphon millions upon millions from honest taxpaying Americans by supporting their health care, welfare, education and criminal expenses?
Newt Gingrich
We need to take away the government’s money power. The banking industry needs its welfare check ended. The dollar’s soundness depends on its being untied from the machine that can make an infinite number of copies of dollars and reduce their value to zero.
Ron Paul
Satan’s greatest success is in making people think they have plenty of time before they die to consider their eternal welfare.
John Owen
Having children changes everything; it changes your entire perspective about life since from the moment they arrive your new world begins and ends with them, your concern for their welfare is paramount over everything else and your life is scheduled around their needs.
Tess Daly
The difference between a welfare state and a totalitarian state is a matter of time.
Ayn Rand
And for man to look upon himself as a capital good, even if it did not impair his freedom, may seem to debase him… by investing in themselves people can enlarge the range of choice available to them. It is one way free men can enhance their welfare.
Theodore Schultz
To maintain the P/PC Balance, the balance between the golden egg (production) and the health and welfare of the goose (production capability) is often a difficult judgment call. But I suggest it is the very essence of effectiveness.
Stephen Covey
The possibility of endangering Nevadans will never happen under my watch. I will do everything I can to protect the safety and welfare of our citizens.
John Ensign
The problems of aging present an opportunity to rethink our social and personal lives in order to ensure the dignity and welfare of each individual.
Daisaku Ikeda
The interesting thing about class warfare is that it’s only class warfare if it’s up, not down. If you talk about welfare cheats or something, that’s not class warfare because it’s down; you have to talk about rich people before it’s class warfare.
Calvin Trillin
The people of one county can not be indifferent to the welfare of the people in another county.
Thomas Jordan Jarvis
This life is made to change all reality. We are here for the benefit, happiness, and welfare of a new reality; a new direction.
Gerry Lindgren
It is the common wish of the people that the autocratic rule of the Manchu government be overthrown, that the Republic of China be strengthened, and that people’s livelihood and welfare be pursued.
Sun Yat-sen
A man ought to work. That’s what he’s here for. That’s how he contributes to the welfare of the community.
W. Somerset Maugham
I entreat masters to live a good life and faithfully to instruct their scholars, especially that they may love God and learn to give themselves to knowledge, in order to promote His honour, the welfare of the state, and their own salvation, but not for the sake of avarice or the praise of man.
Jan Hus
Whenever a car would come down the road, my mum would tell us to hide ‘or else the welfare man would take you away.’
Evonne Goolagong Cawley
There are many animal-welfare groups that sometimes seem to forget that human beings are animals too, that we need to include them in our sphere of compassion.
Jane Goodall
I have nothing but contempt for the kind of governor who is afraid, for whatever reason, to follow the course that he knows is best for the State; and as for the man who sets private friendship above the public welfare – I have no use for him either.
Humanism believes that the individual attains the good life by harmoniously combining personal satisfactions and continuous self-development with significant work and other activities that contribute to the welfare of the community.
Corliss Lamont
I lived in a low-income Black community, grew up with kids on welfare and with Black folks driving Cadillacs, going to private schools and everything in between. My literal biological aunties are deeply religious. I got it all.
Maya Wiley
If we are going to have a bicameral parliament, I think there should always be a reserved place for people whose background and experience are critical to the welfare of the nation.
Neil Kinnock
I’m an ambassador for Best Friends [Animal Society], an incredible organization that’s devoted to the welfare of animals – in particular, trying to help make every animal shelter a no-kill shelter. My two dogs were rescues, and I’m a firm believer in finding every dog or cat a home.
Patrick Fabian
I grew up on the south side of Chicago, most of that time on welfare. My mother and sister and I used to live with my grandparents and various cousins. We shared a two-bedroom tenement, and the three of us slept in one of those bedrooms and had a set of bunk beds.
Deval Patrick
If she’d spaced her children out and had eleven babies in eleven years, she would have been no better than her own mother and sisters: irresponsible, a welfare cheat, another bit of Sawdust Lane white trash. But as luck would have it, she’d had them all at once, and now she was, overnight, middle-class. And respectable.
Sheri Holman
Working people of this country want economic security. The worst possible thing you can do for those families is bust the public finances, have some welfare system this country can’t afford.
George Osborne
I’m against corporate welfare.
Norman Braman
Welfare’s just one of the problems Labour failed to tackle when they were in government.
Grant Shapps
Welfare is not a retirement plan.
Ernie J Zelinski
If welfare and equality are to be primary aims of law, some people must necessarily possess a greater power of coercion in order to force redistribution of material goods. Political power alone should be equal among human beings; yet striving for other kinds of equality absolutely requires political inequality.
Tibor R. Machan
More taxes mean more money to spend for public welfare.
Piyush Goyal
The tyranny of a prince in an oligarchy is not so dangerous to the public welfare as the apathy of a citizen in a democracy.
… in the present State of America, our welfare and prosperity depend upon the cultivation of our lands and turning the produce of them to the best advantage.
George Washington
I didn’t have the welfare. I didn’t have the proper education. I didn’t have these things. That’s why it’s almost like a complex in me that I want to explode myself in my films.
Bahman Ghobadi
Maine’s welfare program is cannibalizing the rest of state government. To all you able-bodied people out there: Get off the couch and get yourself a job.
Paul LePage
For the longest time, the state discourse in Singapore has eschewed any reference to welfare. Similarly, the state has tended to place meritocracy on a pedestal. Political leadership has tended to frame both issues in the extreme, with welfare representing the bad, and meritocracy representing the good.
Pritam Singh
Even if you aren’t in doubt, consider the mental welfare of the person who has to maintain the code after you, and who will probably put parens in the wrong place.
Larry Wall
It’s time for all Americans to get off of welfare and get back to work. You’re going to love it!
Donald Trump
I was discriminated against because I was Jewish, Italian, black and Puerto Rican. But maybe the worst prejudice I experienced was against the poor. I grew up on welfare and often had to move in the middle of the night because we couldn’t pay the rent.
Philip Zimbardo
The more I see of men, the better I like my dog.
Frederick The Great
The theory of animal rights simply is not consistent with the theory of animal welfare… Animal rights means dramatic social changes for humans and non-humans alike; if our bourgeois values prevent us from accepting those changes, then we have no right to call ourselves advocates of animal rights.
Gary L. Francione
Male and female have the power to fuse into one solid, both because both are nourished in both and also because soul is the same thing in all living creatures, although the body of each is different.
When you’re a player, you only really have to look after yourself. And then you go into management, and you’ve got 30 players’ welfare to keep an eye on.
Graeme Souness
A good deed done to an animal is as meritorious as a good deed done to a human being, while an act of cruelty to an animal is a bad as an act of cruelty to a human being.
The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest Rome become bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance.
Taylor Caldwell
If you were a young kid, 19, 20 years old who has two children and a third one on the way and refuses to leave them. A kid who was on welfare, because he refused to steal anybody’s property or take anybody’s money. You found life a lot tougher.
Barry White
My political curiosity, exclusive of my anxious solicitude for the public welfare, leads me to ask who authorized them (the framers of the Constitution) to speak the language of ‘We, the People,’ instead of ‘We, the States’?
Patrick Henry
In 1992, Bill Clinton ran on a platform of ‘ending welfare as we know it.’ His political worldview, drawn from like-minded thinkers at the Democratic Leadership Council, was based in private sector growth and personal responsibility.
Nina Easton
The object of government is the welfare of the people.
Theodore Roosevelt
Lasting peace is sought, it is essential to adopt international measures to improve the lot of the masses. The welfare of the entire human race must replace hunger and oppression. People of the world must be taught to give up envy, avarice and rancour.
Mustafa Kemal Ataturk
All civil rulers, as such, are the ordinance and ministers of God; and they are all, by the nature of their office, and in their respective spheres and stations, bound to consult the public welfare.
Jonathan Mayhew
Bahrainis are better off than many other Arabs. We have a welfare state, everybody gets a salary whether they have a job or not. Electricity and food are subsidized; school and healthcare are free. And we don’t differentiate between Bahrainis and foreigners. We are very proud of that.
Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa
Drug testing for recipients of various welfare programs – I really think that’s something that needs to be considered.
Blake Farenthold
There are times when the welfare system may appear as an impediment to growth. Yet the drive for growth should always bear in mind the fact that people also need security
Romano Prodi
And he said that 47%-that’s pretty high-47% of Americans are basically welfare bums who are mooching off the government. And then he said, ‘My job is not to worry about those people.’ You know, where do people get this stuff that Mitt Romney is a heartless, calculating c**ksucker?
Bill Maher
Contrary to what President Obama said in his inaugural address, going on Medicare and food stamps does not strengthen us. Just ask people who are fourth-generation welfare recipients.
Mark Skousen
Even squirrels know enough to store nuts, so that they will have something to eat when food gets scarce. But the welfare state has spawned a whole class of people who spend everything they get when times are good, and look to others to provide for their food and other basic needs when times turn bad.
Thomas Sowell
Children and dogs are as necessary to the welfare of the country as Wall Street and the railroads.
Harry S. Truman
Every relationship has one or the other motive behind it. Friendship or enemity are not purposeless.Oneness of motive is turned into friendship. While diversity of motive cause enemity. Royal relationships also depend uypon one or theother purpose. But such relatins ar mainly for the welfare of the state.
Over time, the welfare state has become dysfunctional in a surprising way. But in a way it became a victim of its own success: It became so successful at prolonging life, that it becomes financially unsustainable, unless you make major changes to things like retirement ages.
Niall Ferguson
I cannot possibly believe that I have it made while so many black brothers and sisters are hungry, inadequately housed, insufficiently clothed, denied their dignity as they live in slums or barely exist on welfare.
Jackie Robinson
Western governments should bear their responsibilities toward the welfare of their people and not try to make oil producers pay the costs
Mohammad Khatami
There’s tens of millions of families with single mothers who are living at 100 to 200 percent below the poverty level and these are not women that are on welfare, these are working women. How different would there life be if they’re making an extra 40 to 60 cents to the dollar. We can’t do this to our kids anymore.
Patricia Arquette
I’m, you know, having begun my public service in state government. I very much respect the authority of states to make the decisions to provide for its citizen – the safety and welfare of its citizens.
Alberto Gonzales
Pell Grants aren’t ‘welfare,’ they are a gateway to opportunity for some of our nation’s best and brightest students.
Sheldon Whitehouse
Look, my mother’s not a welfare woman. She certainly had plenty of help. But there’s no substitute for a husband and partner.
Kerry Kennedy
By cutting the red tape that comes out of Brussels, we will free our farmers to grow more, sell more, and export more great British food whilst upholding our high standards for plant and animal health and welfare.
Andrea Leadsom
I see my future with my family, with my grandsons and daughters, and I want to look after some welfare institutions I had set up at different places in the country with the help of expatriate Pakistanis.
Abdul Qadeer Khan
If a group of beings from another planet were to land on Earth – beings who considered themselves as superior to you as you feel yourself to be to other animals – would you concede them the rights over you that you assume over other animals?
George Bernard Shaw
Mothers have as powerful an influence over the welfare of future generations as all other earthly causes combined.
John Stevens Cabot Abbott
It saddens me to know that I jeopardized the welfare of the kind people of Hawaii, a community that I love and call my home.
Daniel Dae Kim
It’s admirable, what you do, what she does, but to me animal-welfare people are a bit like Christians of a certain kind. Everyone is so cheerful and well-intentioned that after a while you itch to go off and do some raping and pillaging. Or to kick a cat.
J. M. Coetzee
When it comes to morality, I’d rather have an unfaithful president like Bill Clinton, who tried to reform welfare, than a faithful George Bush who propagated an illegal war on the rest of the world. So that is where my morality stands.
Steve Coogan
But we will say something else. That for far too long in this country, people who can work, people who are able to work, and people who choose not to work: you cannot go on claiming welfare like you are now.
David Cameron
I got songs about being broke, being on welfare, being poor, Section 8.
In 1996, Republicans used reconciliation to pass major legislation that ended six decades of welfare policy.
Bernie Sanders
No one in the world needs a mink coat but a mink.
Murray Banks
I know the ugly history of corporate welfare, and that’s not New York City’s future.
Bill de Blasio
Science and the many benefits that science has produced have played a crucial part in our history and produced vast improvements to human welfare.
John Sulston
I have presented a dream project. Prime Minister Narendra Modi would be elected again at the Centre, and he wants to bring welfare to the people of the southern districts, including Thoothukudi. We only make promises that we can fulfill.
Tamilisai Soundararajan
I support anything to do with the welfare and rights of children in a huge way.
Kelly Preston
I’m very much into animal welfare.
Teresa Palmer
The policies advocated by the welfare school remove the incentive to saving on the part of private citizens.
Ludwig von Mises
Let’s get unemployed Americans off the welfare and back to work in their own country.
Donald Trump
Instead of solving economic problems, government welfare socialism created monstrous moral and spiritual problems – the kind of problems that are inevitable when individuals turn responsibility for their lives over to others.
Star Parker
G.D.P. is not a measure of how much value is produced for consumers. Everybody should recognize that G.D.P. is not a welfare metric.
Erik Brynjolfsson
I receive food stamps but I have never been on welfare.
Tom Noddy
The greater productivity of work under the division of labor is a unifying influence. It leads men to regard each other as comrades in a joint struggle for welfare, rather than as competitors in a struggle for existence. It makes friends out of enemies, peace out of war, society out of individuals.
Ludwig von Mises
I would come here, too. Who doesn’t want a free ride? I want to ride in the carnival for free all day long and put my whole family on welfare.
Kimberly Guilfoyle
Neoliberalism emerged by defining itself against what it labelled as an unrealistic and unsustainable programme of social welfare and public spending.
Mark Fisher
Most of black America is in housing projects, without jobs, living on welfare. And this is not the case in ‘The Cosby Show,’ because all the values in that household are strictly what I would call white American values.
August Wilson
The Constitution is not a panacea for every blot upon the public welfare. Nor should this Court, ordained as a judicial body, be thought of as a general haven for reform movements.
John Marshall Harlan
Our teachers are responsible for our children’s welfare for the six or eight hours they are at school and we need to know without question that their safety will be paramount on the minds of teachers, faculty and volunteers.
Mike Fitzpatrick
It is disgraceful to live as a stranger in one’s country, and be an alien in any matter that affects our welfare.
Aldus Manutius
Bob Rubin was opposed to signing the welfare bill. He’s not exactly what I call a flaming liberal.
Rahm Emanuel
The real purpose of welfare is to get rid of poor people entirely. Everybody knows welfare has bad effects; that’s the point.
P. J. O’Rourke
If we want to have a two-class society and an unemployed, welfare-crippled lower class that has no access to equality and educational opportunity and no access to jobs and is resentful and furiously angry, we can have it – that’s what we’ve been willing to pay for so far.
Robert Hass
The stimulus was a case of political patronage, corporate welfare, and cronyism at their worst.
Paul Ryan
I have from an early age abjured the use of meat, and the time will come when men such as I will look upon the murder of animals as they now look upon the murder of men.
Leonardo da Vinci
There was a council house waiting for me when I had Ryan, there was a welfare state. I never put into the system before I took out, I was on income support before I’d even paid a penny of tax.
Angela Rayner
A thin safety net, an expansive security state: This is the American way. At all levels of government, the country spends roughly double on police, prisons, and courts what it spends on food stamps, welfare, and income supplements.
Annie Lowrey
A liberty subject to law and subordinate to the common welfare.
Bainbridge Colby
By patriotism I mean the welfare of the whole people, if I secure it at the hands of my opponent, I should bow down my head to him.
Mahatma Gandhi
America doesn’t like to hear about things like welfare. ‘Don’t talk about that. We don’t like what it did to people!’ Yeah, but it happened.
Tracy Morgan
I don’t know how we will ever have the moral authority to deal with social welfare if we can’t deal with corporate welfare.
Jeb Hensarling
No one ever laid out the sequence of events that led to my mother being prosecuted and imprisoned for alleged welfare fraud.
Chris Gardner
[T]he power system continues only as long as individuals try to get something for nothing. The day when a majority of individuals declares or acts as if it wants nothing from the government, declares that it will look after its own welfare and interests, then on that day the power elites are doomed.
Antony C. Sutton
On social welfare the Church does so much good around the world – nuns running schools and homeless shelters, priests ministering to people who are in crisis.
Anna Quindlen
I am glad that Congress has recently authorized $800,000 to State welfare agencies to expand their day-care services during the remainder of this fiscal year. But we need much more. We need the $8 million in the 1965 budget for the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare allocated to this purpose.
John F. Kennedy
People who are advanced meditators don’t worry about liberation and self-realization; they instead are interested in the welfare of others and aiding others in their liberation.
Frederick Lenz
In my case, I give a lot to animal welfare because I think that’s pretty neglected in America.
Martha Nussbaum
One main condition of aristocratic life was present in the South and not in the North–personal responsibility to other human beings for education and material welfare. (A Carnegie or a Ford, like a bureaucracy, molds the lives of millions without taking any responsibility.)
Marshall McLuhan
You’re damn right I’m comfortable, I’ve worked very hard to be comfortable. But something I’ve always tried to impress upon people is that these folks in the houses of parliament affect what’s in your wage packet, the welfare of your kids, your health. Why wouldn’t we be interested in it?
Mick Hucknall
A nation’s wealth is too serious a matter to be left to the wealthy. The riches of a nation belong to all, to be shared among all for the general welfare.
Robert Payne
The welfare culture tells the man he is not a necessary part of the family; he feels dispensable, his wife knows he is dispensable, his children sense it.
George Gilder
True up-bringing is restricted to two types of welfare; the welfare of the body and that of the mind.
Ameen Rihani
The welfare state creates its own victim/client constituency. By making individuals free and independent, we reduce the need for ‘charity’ to those truly needy citizens what we can certainly afford to help through real charity.
Grover Norquist
The simplest and clearest motivation for taking animal welfare seriously is the recognition that pain is in and of itself a bad thing, and that to inflict significant amounts of it unnecessarily is wrong.
Julian Baggini
Stripped of its academic jargon, the welfare state is nothing more than a mechanism by which governments confiscate the wealth of the productive members of a society to support a wide variety of welfare schemes.
Alan Greenspan
Few of us are satisfied with retreating from the world and just working on ourselves. We want our training to manifest and to be of benefit. The bodhisattva-warrior, therefore, makes a vow to wake up not just for himself but for the welfare of all beings.
Pema Chodron
Not even the vicissitudes of fortune are contrary to nature or to the providential ordering of the universe. It all flows from the gods, who determine what is needed for the welfare of the whole universe, of which you are a part.
Marcus Aurelius
No matter who we are or where we live, we all share a basic concern for the safety and well-being of our young people. Their welfare is the most telling measure of our nation’s success – and their potential is the most promising element of its future. It is up to us – all of us – to safeguard that future.
Loretta Lynch
I’d been a psychiatric social worker for 17 years, but within 24 hours after I started the case against studying reading Bible in school by my son, I was fired from my job as a supervisor in the city public welfare department. And I was unable to find another one. So my income was completely cut off.
Madalyn Murray O’Hair
The growth of equality… calls for decisions, mechanisms and processes directed to a better distribution of wealth, the creation of sources of employment and an integral promotion of the poor, which goes beyond a simple welfare mentality.
Pope Francis
Crime associated with our border is a serious threat to the general welfare of real citizens, and after all, isn’t it the general welfare of citizens that the Constitution calls upon government to promote?
Charlie Kirk
He would be a very absurd legislator who should pretend to set bounds to his country’s welfare, lest it should perish by knowing no bounds.
Horace Walpole
The pope [Francis] speaks with great passion about the shame we should all feel when, as he puts it, “a man does not have the dignity of earning bread for his family,” but is turned into a peripheral person, a welfare client, a dependent.
George Weigel
Dancin’ in the welfare lines.
Rickie Lee Jones
Building human-centered organizations doesn’t imply a return to the paternalistic, corporate welfare practices of the 19th century. Most of us don’t want to be nannied.
Gary Hamel
Have you ever noticed how statists are constantly “reforming” their own handiwork? Education reform. Health-care reform. Welfare reform. Tax reform. The very fact that they’re always busy “reforming” is an implicit admission that they didn’t get it right the first 50 times.
Lawrence Reed
We spend billions of pounds on welfare, yet millions are trapped on welfare. It’s not worth their while going into work.
David Cameron
The future of Norway isn’t about competing on being the cheapest but the most innovative. We have an expensive welfare state and the only answer to continue that way is to become more competitive, especially on knowledge.
Erna Solberg
No right of preference exists in favor of person, property, or business. Personal claims and ambitions must yield in favor of whatever best serves the general welfare.
Charles Lindbergh
All civil rulers, as such, are the ordinance and ministers of God; and they are all, by the nature of their office, and in their respective spheres and stations, bound to consult the public welfare
Jonathan Mayhew
The welfare system was designed to do something different when it was started than what it does now. It was a safety net to help people get back to work: if they were sick, it would help them get back.
Ross Kemp
And here we encounter the seeds of government disaster and collapse – the kind that wrecked ancient Rome and every other civilization that allowed a sociopolitical monster called the welfare state to exist.
Barry Goldwater
What we want to do is reform the welfare system in the way that Tony Blair talked about 13 years ago but never achieved – a system that was created for the days after the Second World War. That prize is now I think achievable.
Iain Duncan Smith
Having grown up a trailer park kid on welfare and food stamps, becoming jaded is impossible, although now I make a good living, which I’m not ashamed of; when you’ve been poor, it never leaves you.
Bobby Bones
Each one of us is responsible for the whole of humankind. We need to think of each other really as brothers and sisters and to be concerned for each other’s welfare. Rather than working solely to acquire wealth, we need to do something meaningful, something directed seriously towards the welfare of humanity as a whole.
Dalai Lama
This is essential that we have a resurgence in democratic participation. And I don’t mean big-D Democrat, I mean small-D democrat. I mean getting involved in your neighborhood, your community. This is no time to say, “I’m not into politics.” This is a time to go headlong into the welfare of this nation.
Keith Ellison
Immigration law doesn’t exist for the purpose of keeping criminals out. It exists to protect all aspects of American life. The work site, the welfare office, the education system, and everything else.
Donald Trump
Far more has been accomplished for the welfare and progress of mankind by preventing bad actions than by doing good ones.
William Lyon Mackenzie King
For our welfare reform efforts to be successful, we must empower local charitable organizations with the resources to address their local community needs.
Mel Carnahan
In the Washington soft money game, big business and big labor are accomplices working together to protect the mushy middle of big government, with plenty of special interest plums: Big unions get big spending and big business gets corporate welfare and special tax breaks – all at the expense of average Americans.
John McCain
Borrow a child and get on welfare.
Borrow a child and stay in the house all day with the child,
or go to the public park with the child, and take the child
to the welfare office and cry and say your man left you and
be humble and wear your dress and your smile, and don’t talk
Susan Griffin
The sales tax is a necessary source of revenue to pay for Japan’s social welfare.
Yoshihide Suga
Nothing more guarantees the erosion of character than getting something for nothing. In the liberal welfare state, one develops an entitlement mentality. And the rhetoric of liberalism – labeling each new entitlement a ‘right reinforces this sense of entitlement.’ –
Dennis Prager
Whatsoever, after due examination and analysis, you find to be kind, conducive to the good, the benefit, the welfare of all beings…that doctrine believe and cling to, and take it as your guide.
Gautama Buddha
My only aim is the welfare of the poor of my country and the poor of states like Uttar Pradesh.
Narendra Modi
Mexico urgently needs a series of structural reforms that will detonate its true economic potential for once and generate more public welfare.
Enrique Pena Nieto
The Imperial Household, as represented by the Emperor, has been praying for the welfare of the people while nurturing harmonious relationship with them. Based on the people’s respect and adoration for the Emperor, the Japanese people have stayed united. That is the essence of Japan’s national heritage, I believe.
Yoshiko Sakurai
An unmarried adult who cannot navigate the welfare system has no choice but to work, but a married working parent is constantly evaluating the relative merits of staying home with the kids versus bringing home that second paycheck.
Philip Greenspun
Ronald Reagan perfected the subtler version long ago by talking about “welfare mothers” – a code phrase for people of colour.
Adam Hochschild
The police are the public and the public are the police; the police being only members of the public who are paid to give full time attention to duties which are incumbent on every citizen in the interests of community welfare and existence.
Robert Peel
Unless we have courage to recognize cruelty for what it is – whether its victim is human or animal – we cannot expect things to be much better in the world.
Rachel Carson
Whenever you engage in a selfless action that contributes to the welfare of others, this will create a vibratory pattern that will lead you into higher states of mind.
Frederick Lenz
More Americans are enjoying the freedom of independence from the chains of welfare
William Reynolds Archer, Jr.
We believe that the spreading out and perpetuity of the institution of slavery impairs the general welfare. We believe – nay, we know, that that is the only thing that has ever threatened the perpetuity of the Union itself.
Abraham Lincoln
The protection of human rights to promote the dignity of the individual is too important a matter for symbolic gestures alone. It is only through the pursuit of practical and effective efforts to promote human rights that we show our real commitment to the welfare of individuals and society.
Alexander Downer
Today’s citizen is obliged to find his freedom only in the narrow ruts pre-approved by his bureaucratic overlords. “Risk-free liberty” is the ideal of the Welfare State: citizens are permitted only liberties which have been declawed, defanged, neutered, certified and wrapped in benevolent restrictions.
James Bovard
Until the great mass of the people shall be filled with the sense of responsibility for each other’s welfare, social justice can never be attained.
Helen Keller
Protecting the environment is really important to everyone’s welfare – that of our children, as well as that of the future generations.
Yaya Toure
We shared a philosophy together [with June Hillary]. We believed very strongly in the welfare of helping other people, particularly the Third World people.
Edmund Hillary
In ’86 or ’87, the welfare lists were at the lowest level in 17 years. Why? Because the economy was the best it was in 17 years. There were jobs.
Mario Cuomo
Both Marx and Christ agree that in this life, a right action is consideration for the welfare of others.
Gore Vidal
We are sure living in a peculiar time. You get morefor not working than you will for working, and morefor not raising a hog than for raising it.
Will Rogers
I think regular Iowans are cynical of this whole idea of corporate welfare, with the biggest awards going to the most profitable companies. It doesn’t make sense.
David F. Swensen
I’m not saying that people on welfare don’t contribute in their own way, but as many as possible should be encouraged to be economically active as well as socially and culturally active.
Tony Abbott
One of the most dangerous things that can happen to a child is to kill or torture an animal and get away with it.
Margaret Mead
An ideal is an unselfish aspiration. Its purpose is the general welfare not only of this but of future generations. It is a thing of the spirit. It is a generous and humane desire that all men may share equally in a common good. Our ideals are the cement, which binds human society.
Herbert Hoover
Bahrainis are better off than many other Arabs. We have a welfare state, everybody gets a salary whether they have a job or not. Electricity and food are subsidized school and healthcare are free. And we don’t differentiate between Bahrainis and foreigners. We are very proud of that.
Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa
I grew up in Detroit. I was a teen father. I lived on welfare for three years. I have a brother serving life in prison, though I believe he’s innocent.
Michael Eric Dyson
Young people today are being robbed. Of their rights.В  Of their freedom.В  Of their dignity.В  Of their futures.В  The culprits?В  My generation and our predecessors, who either created or failed to stop the world straddling engine of theft, degradation, manipulation, and social control we call the welfare state.
Tom G. Palmer
The impact of climate change is relatively small. The average impact on welfare is equivalent to losing a few per cent of income. That is, the impact of a century worth of climate change is comparable to the impact of one or two years of economic growth.
Richard Tol
If someday they say of me that in my work I have contributed something to the welfare and happiness of my fellow man, I shall be satisfied.
George Westinghouse
After the demise of the Soviet Union, we had many problems of our own for which no one was responsible but ourselves: the economic downfall, the collapse of the welfare system, the separatism, and of course the terror attacks that shook our country. In this respect, we do not have to look for guilty parties abroad.
Vladimir Putin
Congress, even with its frustrations, is the greatest instrument for justice and human welfare in the world.
Rush D. Holt, Jr.
There’s no conflict between the social-welfare state and open markets.
Gerhard Schroder
If you shift your focus from oneself to others, and think more about others’ well-being and welfare, it has an immediate liberating effect.
Dalai Lama
It is necessary to take an active part in politics to observe how often the welfare of the party organization is put before the issues, even before the welfare of the commonwealth.
Charles Edison
If you help others with sincere motivation and sincere concern, that will bring you more fortune, more friends, more smiles, and more success. If you forget about others’ rights and neglect others’ welfare, ultimately you will be very lonely.
Dalai Lama
Resources are a trust of the nation, and each and every penny is being spent on public welfare projects honestly.
Shehbaz Sharif
When economist William Beveridge dreamed up the postwar welfare state he wanted to fight five ‘giant evils’ – want, disease, ignorance, squalor and idleness. Fast forward 65 years and it seems the last New Labour government grew an Unfair State that fuelled – not fought – one of those evils: idleness.
Jeremy Kyle
If there were more women heads of state in the world, the world would be more peaceful and better focused on the improvement of the overall quality of life and welfare.
Dalia Grybauskaite
What does the Atonement have to do with missionary work? Any time we experience the blessings of the Atonement in our lives, we cannot help but have a concern for the welfare of others. … A great indicator of one’s personal conversion is the desire to share the gospel with others.
Ezra Taft Benson
Tariffs, government contracts, naval and military spending, nationalized industries, tax policy, social welfare, the legal privileging of labor unions were among the means at the disposal of the governing class to exploit the public at large for the benefits of its various clienteles.
Ralph Raico
The Welfare of Each of Us Is Dependent Fundamentally Upon the Welfare of All of Us
Theodore Roosevelt
I believe that cronyism is nothing more than welfare for the rich and powerful, and should be abolished.
Charles Koch
I’ve been on food stamps and welfare, did anybody help me out? No. No.
Craig T. Nelson
The same government that requires a taxpaying citizen to document every statement on his tax return decrees that questioning a welfare applicant demeans and humiliates him.
Ronald Reagan
The needlework of lies and rumors seeks to distract peoples attention from the daily business of governance under the Presidents leadership. Those who continually plot for the Presidents downfall will never succeed because she is a hard-working President with no other agenda than to promote our peoples welfare
Eduardo Ermita
I grew up on Section 8 housing, food stamps, welfare, and dealing with social services. I never had a Christmas. I never had a birthday.
What precisely is this disease that causes inflation and all these other troubles? It has many popular names, such as socialism, communism, state interventionism, and welfare statism.
Leonard Read
Poverty is on the increase – due to welfare cuts – and demand for food banks has rocketed.
Nicola Sturgeon
The essence of the teachings is to lose self importance and to care more for the welfare of others and the magical world around us, than we do for ourselves and our own self images.
Frederick Lenz
The effect of violent dislike between groups has always created an indifference to the welfare and honor of the state.
Thomas Babington Macaulay
It is too early for politicians to presume on our forgetting that the public good, the real welfare of the great body of the people, is the supreme object to be pursued; and that no form of government whatever has any other value than as it may be fitted for the attainment of this object.
James Madison
We bought an apartment building and were going to live off the rent money. We rented to people who were on welfare and a lot of times they couldn’t pay the rent. We wouldn’t throw them out so we lost the building.
Dick York
This federal welfare system is large, fragmented, and growing in cost. This system may have started out with good intentions, but it has become a confusing maze of programs that are overlapping, duplicative, poorly coordinated and difficult to administer.
Charles Boustany
Every right has its responsibilities. Like the right itself, these responsibilities stem from no man-made law, but from the very nature of man and society. The security, progress and welfare of one group is measured finally in the security, progress and welfare of all mankind.
Lewis B. Schwellenbach
How we treat the earth basically effects our social welfare and our national security.
Jim Fowler
The Welfare State, which begun in Imperial Germany for the truly indigent and disabled, has now become “everybody’s entitlement” and an increasing burden on those who produce.
Peter Drucker
The first priority of the Leader is to Pray for and be concerned for the welfare of your flock. The key to the rest of our life and ministry will be the investment of prayer we make in the lives of others.
W. A. Criswell
Every state of welfare, every feeling of satisfaction, is negative in its character; that is to say, it consists in freedom from pain, which is the positive element of existence.
Arthur Schopenhauer
I grew up in Burbank – but not the Burbank of valet parking and TV studios. In the late 1950s, there was a small apartment complex on Elmwood Avenue that rented mostly to families on welfare. I lived there from age 3 to 11 and again from 14 to 18 with my mother, Shirley, and my younger sister, Toni.
Rene Russo
Not since the days of slavery have there been so many people who feel entitled to what other people have produced as there are in the modern welfare state, whether in Western Europe or on this side of the Atlantic.
Thomas Sowell
Legally speaking, the term ‘public rights’ is as vague and indefinite as are the terms ‘public health,’ ‘public good,’ ‘public welfare,’ and the like. It has no legal meaning, except when used to describe the separate, private, individual rights of a greater or less number of individuals.
Lysander Spooner
Without knowing it, we utilize hundreds of products each day that owe their origin to wild animals and plants. Indeed our welfare is intimately tied up with the welfare of wildlife. Well may conservationists proclaim that by saving the lives of wild species, we may be saving our own.
Norman Myers
Citizens of liberal welfare states become increasingly narcissistic
Dennis Prager
The state should avoid all solicitude for the positive welfare of its citizens, and not proceed a step further than is necessary for their mutual security and their protection against foreign enemies. It should impose restrictions on freedom for no other purpose.
Wilhelm von Humboldt
While I was governor, 85 percent of the people on a form of welfare assistance in my state had no work requirement. I wanted to increase the work requirement.
Mitt Romney
There is no fundamental difference between man and the higher mammals in their mental faculties…The difference in mind between man and the higher animals, great as it is, certainly is one of degree and not of kind.
Charles Darwin
My mom was on welfare for the first five, six years of my life.
Michael Tubbs
Perfection of means and confusion of goals seem to characterize our age. If we desire sincerely and passionately the safety, the welfare and the free development of the talents of all men, we shall not be in want of the means to approach such a state.
Albert Einstein
There are three things an athlete must do. You must be in physical condition … You must execute properly and quickly the fundamentals … and you must have eagerness to sacrifice personal interests or glory for the welfare of the team.
John Wooden
For every dollar of revenue generated by gambling, taxpayers must pay at least $3 in increased criminal justice costs, social welfare expenses, high regulatory costs, and increased infrastructure expenditures
John Warren Kindt
There’s no doubt that when the Republican Party took over in 1994, the ‘Contract with America’ was an opportunity to implement some things – like welfare reform and some of the other initiatives. Then, it kind of lost its steam.
Marco Rubio
An ambassador should study the welfare of his country, and not spend his time in feasting and riot.
Opposition parties which have no concern for the welfare of Tamil Nadu or its people have been carrying out a campaign of lies. Their only aim is to criticise AIADMK which has the people’s support.
J. Jayalalithaa
I believe animals should be respected as citizens of this earth. They should have the right to their own freedom, their own families, and their own life.
John Feldmann
I have deep feelings for the welfare and comfort of others.
DeForest Kelley
Society is responsible for its social organization, and if it can’t provide the wherewithal for men to be gainfully employed then it should pay the penalty and give them welfare.
Pierre Trudeau
Until I was two, my mother supplemented her welfare payments by cleaning houses and waitressing. My father didn’t help.
Lisa Brennan-Jobs
See, believe it or not, I actually support complete free speech not because I don’t care about the welfare of the American people. I support it because I do.
Kat Timpf
Patriotism is merely a religion-love of country, worship of country, devotion to the country’s flag and honor and welfare.
Mark Twain
Maybe we should be directing our anger elsewhere – like toward Wall Street. Why is it we never think of Big Business when we think of welfare recipients? Companies take more of our tax dollars, and in much more questionable ways, than do those who are trying to heat their apartments with a kerosene stove.
Michael Moore
Political and economic insecurity inevitably translates into insecurity in people’s everyday lives, from lack of access to welfare to the increasing lack of security in the workplace.
Deeyah Khan
Like normal people, leftists now have to get up in the morning and earn a living, seeing as the fascists have come down so hard on social welfare fraud, and this is the cruel reality. The good old days are gone, and increasingly, leftists are to be found working in ordinary, proper jobs.
Michael Leunig
Random distributions are not good things, because people are risk-averse, and this risk adversely affects their welfare. If you get too much price uncertainty, all kinds of long-term, mutually beneficial contracts can’t be entered into.
Edward C. Prescott
Caring about the welfare of children and shaming parents are mutually exclusive endeavors.
BrenГ© Brown
I now understand that my welfare is only possible if I acknowledge my unity with all the people of the world without exception.
Leo Tolstoy
With the goodness of God to desire our highest welfare, the wisdom of God to plan it, and the power of God to achieve it, what do we lack? Surely we are the most favored of all creatures.
Aiden Wilson Tozer
The typical jobs that a lower-skilled immigration worker might do might be construction work, it might be hospitality work, it might be restaurant work, or might be not working at all and just going onto the welfare system if there isn’t a job for that individual.
Stephen Miller
Northeastern conservatism is moderate, accepts the modern welfare state, and dislikes mixing religion with politics. Western conservatism is hawkish, hates government, and embraces individual freedom. Southern conservatism is populist, draws on evangelical Christianity, and plays upon racial resentments.
Jacob Weisberg
Here in England the welfare of the State depends on the conduct of our aristocracy.
Anthony Trollope
We talked about many issues, like welfare, is it the way of life or hand up? Talked about size of government, how much should it tax families and small businesses? And when we left that lunch, we got in the car and I looked over at Chuck and said, “I’ll be damned. We’re Republicans.”
Susana Martinez
Stopping new illegal immigration – preventing the effects that will have on our schools, on our hospitals, on our welfare system, on our wage earners – will save taxpayers hundreds of billions of dollars.
Stephen Miller
The assumption that animals are without rights, and the illusion that our treatment of them has no moral significance, is a positively outrageous example of Western crudity and barbarity. Universal compassion is the only guarantee of morality.
Arthur Schopenhauer
We used to have just one criterion and that was profit, and then another criterion was added – social welfare. Now we have to add the third important criterion, and that is nature and the environment.
Mikhail Gorbachev
The original purpose of the welfare state was to lift people into self-sufficiency, not to create a permanent underclass dependent on taxpayers.
Stephen Moore
Prejudices of any kind are the destroyers of human happiness & welfare.
Love of animals is a universal impulse, a common ground on which all of us may meet. By loving and understanding animals, perhaps we humans shall come to understand each other.
Louis J. Camuti
Family preparedness has been a long-established welfare principle.
Ezra Taft Benson
With increasing poverty, welfare dependency and violence in the United States, religion and religious organizations have an important role to play combating societal problems.
Mercedes Schlapp
State and local law enforcement are the primary protectors of the health, safety, and welfare of the people in the individual states.
Ron DeSantis
The rationale for the vast network of government welfare programs as well as regulation and control over private enterprise is based on the socialist analysis of the market economy.
Richard Ebeling
In the summer of 1966, I went to Mississippi to be in the heart of the civil-rights movement, helping people who had been thrown off the farms or taken off the welfare roles for registering to vote. While working there, I met the civil-rights lawyer I later married – we became an interracial couple.
Alice Walker
Government welfare programs contribute to the disintegration of poor families. They make women and children dependent on government; dependent for food, for clothing, for shelter; and reward fatherless families with extra benefits and welfare perks.
Hans F. Sennholz
The powers of Congress are totally inadequate to preserve the balance between the respective States, and oblige them to do those things which are essential for their own welfare or for the general good.
Henry Knox
Yes I graduated from high school. Welfare. Temporary work, please. What is my problem? I want to eat.
Alexis De Veaux
The government doesn’t really prosecute for polygamy anymore, but a lot of the arrests are of groups supporting themselves through welfare scams or for child abuse. So that was all I’d really heard about polygamists.
Jeanne Tripplehorn
The welfare and the future of our societies depend on our capacity to remain mobilized so as to improve the health of every mother and child.
Jean Ping
By developing a sense of respect for others and a concern for their welfare, we reduce our own selfishness, which is the source of all problems, and enhance our sense of kindness, which is a natural source of goodness.
Dalai Lama
There is nothing as precious to man as a sound mind in a sound body and it is essential that the physical well being of our people merits as much attention as its spiritual welfare
Haile Selassie
Our expensive welfare state is fueled by the destructive notion that ‘greed’ is when you want to keep your own money but ‘compassion’ is when you want to take somebody else’s.
Lawrence Reed
I would like to clarify that the only adoption I am involved is through the Blue Cross Animal Welfare Shelter where we provide healthy and friendly homeless animals for adoption.
Amala Akkineni
Yeah, remember, under the Bush administration, welfare — I mean, excuse me, poverty among African Americans and among single unmarried women, poverty was at the lowest rate ever in the history of this country. So Obama’s policies are not working, Bush polices worked! For long a time as a matter of fact.
Rick Santorum
There are no dead-end jobs. There are no dead-end jobs. There are only dead-end people. Our current social philosophy, and the welfare state apparatus based on it, are creating more dead-end people.
Thomas Sowell
A day will come in which men will look upon an animal’s murder the same way they look today upon a man’s murder.
Leonardo da Vinci
Declining welfare rolls and increasing work participation rates demonstrate that Missouri is moving people away from welfare dependency and into jobs.
Mel Carnahan
Understand, this is unemployment insurance. It’s not welfare, as a lot of my Republican colleagues like to suggest it is. You pay into it when you’re working. You get help when you’re not.
Sherrod Brown
Welfare mothers make better lovers.
Neil Young
With the observable fact that scientific knowledge makes our lives better when applied with concern for human welfare and environmental protection, there is no question that science and technology can produce abundance so that no one has to go without.
Jacque Fresco
I think of these imperial adventures like welfare programs; you start them with all good intentions, they never end, they go on forever and get more expensive as they go on.
Andrew Sullivan
The welfare state is not really about the welfare of the masses. It is about the egos of the elites.
Thomas Sowell
We need to do everything we can to protect the health and welfare of children around the world, but fortunately, it’s getting easier to provide things like medication and care.
Alek Wek
The Oscar Wilde of Welfare State gentility.
Joe Orton
Welfare corrupts the lower class much faster than the middle class.
James Cook
The duties of an officer are the safety, honor, and welfare of your country first; the honor, welfare, and comfort of the men in your command second; and the officer s own ease, comfort, and safety last.
George S. Patton
It is simply unacceptable for people to sneak into this country illegally on Thursday, obtain a government-issued I.D. on Friday, head for the welfare office on Monday, and cast a vote on Tuesday.
Sonny Perdue
Whenever you observe an animal closely, you feel as if a human being sitting inside were making fun of you.
Elias Canetti
I can’t pinpoint a period in history or a place in the universe where religion has actually helped the welfare of man.
Madalyn Murray O’Hair
Of course, bankers were always interested in making money. But when bankers had clients, they bore some responsibility for the clients’ welfare.
Barry Schwartz
Make no mistake, if the payroll-tax cut is extended, it will become permanent. Social Security will become another welfare program as the tie between what someone pays and what they receive gets broken.
Ari Fleischer
[T]he schools, through reliance upon the spur of competition and the bestowing of special honors and prizes, only build up and strengthen the disposition that makes an individual when he leaves school employ his special talents and superior skill to outwit his fellow without respect for the welfare of others
John Dewey
Welfare reform happened with reconciliation; half the Democrats voted for it. The Bush tax cuts happened with reconciliation; twelve Democratic Senators voted for it. You didn’t have a real partisan issue on those times that it was used
Tom Coburn
People from both political parties have long recognized that welfare without work creates negative incentives that lead to permanent poverty. It robs people of self-esteem.
Mitt Romney
Man has throughout the ages been seeking something beyond himself, beyond material welfare – something we call truth or God or reality, a timeless state – something that cannot be disturbed by circumstances, by thought or by human corruption.
Jiddu Krishnamurti
We are not all the same; we don’t think alike; and we have the right to openly express those differences in ways that, hopefully, will contribute to our community’s welfare.
Michael Eric Dyson
Meekness is marked by silence in the face of abuse and infamy, by submission to God’s way, which is higher than our way as heaven is higher than the earth, by submissiveness to others for their welfare. It is the source of inexpressible joy and contentment.
V. Raymond Edman
Patriotism should be sought for and will be found in right living. No man can be a good Latter-day Saint and not be true to the best interests and general welfare of his country.
Joseph Smith, Jr.
The government has a right – the government and the people of the United States have a right to run the programs of the United States. Health, welfare, housing – all these things.
Keith Ellison
If you’ve got any concern at all about animal welfare, you’ve got to not eat meat.
Russell Brand
The welfare state inhibits the maturation of its young citizens into responsible adults
Dennis Prager
We must rouse in our people the unanimous wish for power in this sense, together with the determination to sacrifice on the altar of patriotism, not only life and property, but also private views and preferences in the interests of the common welfare.
Friedrich von Bernhardi
Welfare reform isn’t easy.
Dominic Raab
Yet, while producing increasingly selfish people, the mantra of the Left, and therefore of the universities and the media, has been for generations that capitalism and the free market, not the welfare state, produces selfish people.
Dennis Prager
Our upside down welfare state is socialism for the rich, free enterprise for the poor.
William O. Douglas
Mothers born on relief have their babies on relief. Nothingness, truly, seems to be the condition of these New York people. They are nomads going from one rooming house to another, looking for a toilet that functions.
Elizabeth Hardwick
Citizens of liberal welfare states become increasingly narcissistic. The great preoccupations of vast numbers of Brits, Frenchmen, Germans and other Western Europeans are how much vacation time they will have an how early they can retire and be supported by the state.
Dennis Prager
Every time there was a shiny car, my mum must have worried it was the welfare people coming for her kids. We had no idea.
Evonne Goolagong Cawley
We evolved without social welfare and we are equipped to solve our problems without it.
James Cook
As Starbucks’ CEO Howard Shultz explains, the high-quality customer service that makes it possible for his company to charge a premium for its coffee results from the investments it makes in employee welfare and training.
James O’Toole
The message of David Duke, is this, basically: Big government, anti-big government, get out of my pocketbook, cut my taxes, put welfare people back to work. That’s a very popular message. The problem is the messenger.
Dan Quayle
I’ve been on food stamps and welfare. Anybody help me out? No. No. They gave me hope, and they gave me encouragement, and they gave me a vision. That came from my education.
Craig T. Nelson
Animals on factory farms and slaughter houses are mutilated, drugged and abused in ways that would be illegal if dogs or cats were treated similarly. The problem is that farm animals are exempted from the Animal Welfare Act. Therefore, companies often act with impunity.
Bruce Friedrich
The promise of welfare and welfare regulation mean that there is no incentive to accept jobs that do not meet basic standards.
Jacob Rees-Mogg
We cannot shirk responsibility from concerns for the welfare of the next generation.
Moshe Vardi
Man’s highest duty is to protect animals from cruelty.
Emile Zola
Now [in China] within the framework of socialism – which is really social welfare in a social democratic framework – all they want to do is to get the kind of economic growth of the capitalist world. It can’t be done. It creates the same kind of problems as in the capitalist world.
Harry Magdoff
You know where nice people end up? On welfare.
Kelly Cutrone
To feel that your hours are filled to overflowing, that you can barely steal minutes enough for sleep, that the welfare of many is entrusted to you, that the world looks on and approves, that some good is always being done to others — above all things some good to your country; — that is happiness.
Anthony Trollope
To drive men from independence to live on alms, is itself great cruelty.
Edmund Burke
The Labor Department’s Hall of Honor recognizes men and women – like Cesar Chavez, Helen Keller and the Workers of the Memphis Sanitation Strike – who have made invaluable contributions to the welfare of American workers.
Tom Perez
In various European countries, it is increasingly common for young men to live with their parents into their 30s and even longer. Why not? In the welfare state, there is no shame in doing so.
Dennis Prager
The problem of how we finance the welfare state should not obscure a separate issue: if each person thinks he has an inalienable right to welfare, no matter what happens to the world, that’s not equity, it’s just creating a society where you can’t ask anything of people.
Jacques Delors
Which of us has not been stunned by the beauty of an animal’s skin or its flexibility in motion?
Marianne Moore
Welfare distorts behavior, makes one less personally responsible and reduces the role of private charity. This principle applies to corporate welfare.
Larry Elder
Women are concerned about the purity and welfare of the community. ? While the father’s love was related to mundane desires, the mother’s love was related to spiritual concerns.
Sathya Sai Baba
Cliven Bundy is breaking the law. He’s breaking the law and he wants all of us to pay for his cattle while he’s ranting about people who are part of social welfare programs.
Christine Quinn
Governments everywhere that are unable to guarantee equitable growth and social welfare have suffered a fatal decay of legitimacy.
Pankaj Mishra
From beasts we scorn as soulless, In forest, field and den, The cry goes up to witness The soulessness of men
William Inge
The country – or the government – is headed for bankruptcy. So we’re going to be continuing to speak out against corporate welfare as something that hurts everybody except those direct beneficiaries.
Charles Koch
Shortly after I turned 13, Child Welfare took me into care. I was sent to a residential centre where girls with behavioural problems were ‘evaluated’. My time there comes back to me now only in flashes of smells, images and sounds.
Liz Murray
As long as there’s this welfare state of ours we’re not going to have any good fighters
Tommy Farr
The E.U.’s tax and regulatory policies, climate-change and welfare spending, and free immigration even in wartime are gradually ruining Europe. That’s why I believe Brexit is good for British freedom, political autonomy, and the survival of democratic capitalism.
Lawrence Kudlow
Look around, and you see everywhere the exertions and acts of individuals restricted, regulated, or promoted, on the principle of the common welfare.
Friedrich List
Our enforcement priorities will include removing criminals, gang members, security threats, visa overstays, public charges. That is those relying on public welfare or straining the safety net along with millions of recent illegal arrivals and overstays who’ve come here under this current corrupt administration.
Donald Trump
Civil liberty is the status of the man who is guaranteed by law and civil institutions the exclusive employment of all his own powers for his own welfare.
William Graham Sumner
I am for doing good to the poor, but I differ in opinion about the means. I think the best way of doing good to the poor is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it.
Benjamin Franklin
Most of us enter adult life with great ambitions for how we will start our own ventures, but the harshness of life wears us down. We settle into some job and slowly give in to the illusion that our bosses care about us and our future, that they spend time thinking of our welfare.
Robert Greene
We should measure welfare’s success by how many people leave welfare, not by how many are added.
Ronald Reagan
The abuse of power that seems to create the most unhappiness is when a person uses personal power to get ahead without regards to the welfare of others, or when power is used to go into the lower dimensional planes.
Frederick Lenz
I don’t mind payin’ for the police and for streets and sanitation, or road work, bridges, trains, food subsidies and welfare. But I don’t wanna pay for bombs to fight proxy wars in the middle of nowhere against enemies in the night.
Lupe Fiasco
There’s a long history of subsidized philanthropy – particularly in the USA – and again the public has come to expect corporations to play a role in their social welfare. It’s become easy for some companies to profit from citizen goodwill and volunteerism.
Ravida Din
Perhaps they put party loyalty ahead of the welfare of their constituents, are afraid of crossing the president or are as stupid as Mr. Gruber thinks the American people are.
Jack Kelly
My message on immigration is that the people who want to come to this country, by and large, even those who have done it illegally, are coming for the right reasons, not to take advantage of our welfare system.
Blake Farenthold
Though liberty is established by law, we must be vigilant, for liberty to enslave us is always present under that very liberty. Our Constitution speaks of the “general welfare of the people.” Under that phrase all sorts of excesses can be employed by lusting tyrants to make us bondsmen.
Marcus Tullius Cicero
Free education and health care are essential for the welfare of the population.
Jose Ramos-Horta
The welfare of our children must always be a top priority.
Mike Parson
True art and true science possess two unmistakable marks: the first, an inward mark, which is this, that the servitor of art and science will fulfil his vocation, not for profit but with self- sacrifice; and the second, an external sign, his productions will be intelligible to all the people whose welfare he has in view.
Leo Tolstoy
The rare scholars who are nomads-by-choice are essential to the intellectual welfare of the settled disciplines.
Benoit Mandelbrot
By common consent, most European countries support the maintenance of robust welfare states and are comfortable with taxation systems that support them.
Charles Kennedy
We lived in a classless society. We’d spend a summer at Gore Vidal’s house in Italy, but we were on and off welfare.
Gaby Hoffmann
All my friends were in the park smoking weed and getting pregnant. I didn’t want to be the young black girl having a baby, a baby’s father, being on welfare. That wasn’t going to be my story.
Foxy Brown
I hold no man to be indispensable for the welfare of the country.
Mahatma Gandhi
During my time in the state Senate, I’ve worked to make sure every Kansas child has the support they need to succeed. That means access to good public schools, but it also means strong early childhood programs, an accountable child welfare system to protect kids, and affordable, safe child care.
Laura Kelly
Prison is, simply put, the bottom rung of the welfare ladder.
Stephen Reid
Animal welfare issues have always been important to me.
Cathy Guisewite
Music ministers to human welfare more than any other art.
Herbert Spencer
Bill Clinton worked with a Republican Congress. They certainly had their differences on many issues, but look at what they also accomplished. Welfare reform – that was maybe the most significant social policy achievement in two generations.
Tom Cotton
It is a general popular error to suppose the loudest complainers for the public to be the most anxious for its welfare.
Edmund Burke
It’s a mistake to think that poor people get the benefit from the welfare system. It’s a total fraud. Most welfare go to the rich of this country: the military-industrial complex, the bankers, the foreign dictators, it’s totally out of control.
Ron Paul
It is not the role of government to use the taxation and welfare system as a tool to level the playing field.
Joe Hockey
We don’t need subsidized corporate welfare schemes that rely on endless bailouts from the taxpayer.
Pierre Poilievre
Socialism is a fundamentally different social system where the world’s resources are not controlled by a greedy, undemocratic oligarchy. This is not the same as the capitalist welfare states that have existed in some European countries.
Kshama Sawant
I devoted myself to the task of welfare of my countrymen – not as a ruler but as a servant.
Sheikh Hasina
The outstanding coach is a teacher that gets all his squad to accept the role that he considers to be the most important for the welfare of all.
John Wooden
My mother was born into a solidly middle-class family, but, as all too many Americans understand, everything doesn’t always go as planned – no matter how hard you work. She died on welfare. Without the support of the state, I shudder to think of where we would have ended up.
Nina Turner
Animal rights can be as extreme as not riding a horse, or not wearing leather, not having a pet at all. Animal welfare advocates are preventing the suffering of animals. And then there’s conservation and species conservation and what conservation biologists do.
Eric Goode
I worked in the Senate in the 1970s. I worked for the Labor, Public Welfare Committee, and we had Ted Kennedy and my old boss, Bill Hathaway, and Walter Mondale.
Angus King
Say ‘Toronto’ or ‘Ontario,’ and the immediate thought associations are with a somewhat blander version of North America: a United States with a welfare regime and a more polite street etiquette, and the additionally reassuring visage of Queen Elizabeth on the currency.
Christopher Hitchens
And the same goes for government benefits. The Center for Immigration Studies estimates that 62 percent of households headed by illegal immigrants use some form of cash or non-cash welfare programs like food stamps or housing assistance. Tremendous costs, by the way, to our country.
Donald Trump
Being a mother is a noble status, right? Right. So why does it change when you put ‘unwed’ or ‘welfare’ in front of it?
Florynce Kennedy
Where some one else’s welfare is concerned, a young girl becomes as ingenious as a thief. Guileless where she herself is in question, and full of foresight for me,-she is like a heavenly angel forgiving the strange incomprehensible sins of earth.
Honore de Balzac
You can tell a workingman you like him, but he knows whether you are sincere or not. You can’t make him believe you are interested in his welfare unless you are.
Charles M. Schwab
Government’s view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.
Ronald Reagan
As champions of green jobs, we’re asking questions that progressives should like, like “How are we going to avoid baking the planet,” and “How are we going to create jobs for ordinary Americans?” Meanwhile, we’re offering solutions that conservative should like. I’m not calling for more welfare; I’m calling for more work.
Van Jones
I do not believe the picture that some people paint of Scottish towns dependent on welfare. Every time I come here, I meet people who are determined to get into work. Who, with the right help are desperate to get off benefits, support their family and set an example for their children.
Iain Duncan Smith
The black family unit that had survived 150 years of slavery was decimated in less than 30 years by welfare payments that stopped if the family structure remained intact.
Larry Burkett
We’ve overmedicated kids. Quite frankly, some of the overmedication of kids are because welfare moms want to get additional benefits, and if they can put them on SSI through maintenance drugs, they can also put them on Social Security disability and get a separate check. That is wrong on every single level.
James Lankford
Statistically after six months, if an Indigenous or non-Indigenous person has come off welfare, even long-term welfare, and has stuck in that’s job for six months, then they’ve really broken in their own psychology the welfare reliance mentality. They’re up on their own two feet.
Andrew Forrest
Our ultimate aim in this welfare work is to help Church members to become self-supporting, and to obtain work they can do best. The Church, with its members independent and free from debt, with time to labor in the ministry, can then successfully carry on the work of the Lord here on earth.
Henry D. Moyle
President Trump is draining the D.C. swamp by fighting against corporate welfare.
Matt Gaetz
Since 1920, the vast increase in welfare beneficiaries and the extension of the franchise to women – two constituencies that are notoriously tough for libertarians – have rendered the notion of “capitalist democracy” into an oxymoron.
Peter Thiel
I think if the doctor is a good doctor and has a patient’s best interest in mind then he’s not going to allow anything to compromise that patient’s care. The bottom line is the doctor has to care for his patient. You have to have that overwhelming sense of welfare for your patient.
Charles Teo
A man who is influenced by the polls or is afraid to make decisions which make him unpopular is not a man to represent the welfare of the country.
Harry S. Truman
Every man holds his property subject to the general right of the community to regulate its use to whatever degree the public welfare may require it.
Theodore Roosevelt
Ma was legally blind due to a degenerative eye disease she’d had since birth. This meant she was entitled to welfare, and our lives revolved around the first day of every month when her payment was due.
Liz Murray
Some of the best things about being a vegetarian include, of course, contributing towards the welfare of animals. Being a vegetarian can also make you a healthier person, and it helps the environment. All of these things make vegetarianism worthwhile. It’s really a win-win situation.
Laura Mennell
Those in blue suits who use thinly veiled race symbols — when they say welfare and crime and three strikes and anti- affirmative action — they are sending messages more profound their language.
Jesse Jackson
Anyone who doesn’t think the welfare-industrial complex is trying to increase dependency isn’t paying attention.
Howie Carr
The worst thing we could do is impose time limits and then expect people to sink or swim once they move off welfare.
William Julius Wilson
Government and opposition both have important roles to play. While giving expression to their political ideas, both must move forward in tandem to ensure that development of the country and welfare of its people are promoted consistently.
Ram Nath Kovind
New Living Translation
And work for the peace and prosperity of the city where I sent you into exile. Pray to the LORD for it, for its welfare will determine your welfare.
I want to get rid of corporate welfare.
Maxime Bernier
What type of politics is the Congress practising, wherein its leaders commit the sin of looting money meant for the welfare of pregnant women and poor children?
Smriti Irani
Mitt Romney has won the 2012 presidential nomination by promising Republicans that he would end a so-called ‘culture of dependency’ on welfare – welfare defined as ‘free stuff’ and food stamps for poor folks, not tax breaks for Big Oil or tax shelters for Bain executives.
Christine Pelosi
…for the welfare of the whole world and the new world order.
Hosni Mubarak
I cannot undertake to lay my finger on that article of the Constitution which granted a right to Congress of expending, on objects of benevolence, the money of their constituents.
James Madison
What a racially segregated system once taught the young black about living with his inferiority is now taught by a benevolent social welfare system. The difference was that in an earlier age a black parent could fight the competing influences.
Charles A. Murray
I don’t like to give the sob story: growing up in a single-parent home, never knew my father, my mother never worked, and when friends came over I’d hide the welfare cheese. Yo, I failed ninth grade three times, but I don’t think it was necessarily ’cause I’m stupid. I didn’t go to school. I couldn’t deal.
I think everything in my life has led to my animal welfare work.
Doris Day
This is what Jesus had in mind: folks coming together, forming close-knit communities and meeting each other’s needs– no kings, no major welfare systems, no presidents necessary. His is a theology and practice for the people of God, not a set of suggestions for empire.
Shane Claiborne
It’s not easy cutting welfare bills. It’s not easy cutting the deficit.
George Osborne
And some of what we’re doing in Government even now, some of the welfare reform programs that are helping lone mothers come into work are based on things that were very new under the Labour Government in the eighties.
Patricia Hewitt
We must have clean water and the health and the welfare of our children is at stake and is at risk.
Erin Brockovich
If you just keep giving constantly, if you don’t really take thought of your own welfare and your own awareness, but just give, beyond exhaustion – then your life will always be a constant progression.
Frederick Lenz
I would absolutely commit to holding a vote on the hunting ban – I think it is not proven to be in the interests of animal welfare whatsoever.
Andrea Leadsom
It often happens that a man is more humanely related to a cat or dog than to any human being.
Henry David Thoreau
I wish the government would read the Constitution. I think that would probably help quite a bit. And maybe they did read it and maybe they got confused when they read the preamble which says one of the duties is to promote the general welfare.
Benjamin Carson
The government is largely influenced by people who advocate corporate welfare and advocate these policies that create this two-tiered society…
Charles Koch
I think what the Conservatives have done, scaling back welfare payment, is overwhelmingly positive. There’s only a certain amount of welfare they can give out.
Georgia Toffolo
We’re supposed to show people how the world is, to give them the tools they need to make good decisions as citizens or consumers. Depending on what your values are – the environment, your health, animal welfare – the answers are going to be different for every person.
Michael Pollan
For women who turn to welfare, Big Brother becomes Husband.
Tammy Bruce
The twentieth century will be chiefly remembered by future generations not as an era of political conflicts or technical inventions, but as an age in which human society dared to think of the welfare of the whole human race as a practical objective.
Arnold J. Toynbee
The welfare of each is bound up in the welfare of all.
Helen Keller
This administration and these folk who run Washington are no more interested in our welfare and our well being than the man on the moon. And we have got to start taking our destiny into our hands.
Tavis Smiley
The political outcome that is desired is one which makes any government sensitive to the pulse of the people and their welfare, allowing any ruling party to govern without gridlock while promoting the political openness that so many of us yearn for in Singapore.
Pritam Singh
I’d go to, like, six different schools in one year. We were on welfare, and my mom never ever worked.
Pride or ego is not important to me. What is more important is common sense, the welfare of the company, and the objective reality that we need to be cautious during difficult times. One should not make decisions based on emotions or ego.
Henry Sy
We oppose all corporate welfare, whether we benefit or not. You will find that our policy positions mainly hurt our profitability rather than help it.
Charles Koch
The Convention probably foresaw what it has been a principal aim of these papers to inculcate that the danger which most threatens our political welfare is, that the state governments will finally sap the foundations of the Union.
Alexander Hamilton
Unemployment insurance is a pre-paid vacation for freeloaders.
Ronald Reagan
When we look after the welfare of others, we promote and participate in God’s kingdom work.
Reggie McNeal
Living creatures possess a moving soul and a certain spiritual superiority which in this respect make them similar to those who possess intellect (people) and they have the power of affecting their welfare and their food and they flee from pain and death.
The vast upheaval of the World War set in motion forces that will either destroy civilization or raise mankind to undreamed of heights of human welfare and prosperity.
Arthur Henderson
I have no family. My only responsibility is the welfare of Quebec. I belong to the province.
Maurice Duplessis
Both my mother and I were determined that we weren’t going to stay on welfare. We always worked toward doing better, toward having a better life. We never had any doubts that we would.
Larry Ellison
At its core, government welfare is predicated on a false compassion.
Stephen Moore
We have to shift our understanding of ourselves as separate individuals, each seeking our own welfare, to an understanding of how we fit into social, biological, and physical environments.
Robert E. Ornstein
Normal fear protects us; abnormal fear paralyses us. Normal fear motivates us to improve our individual and collective welfare; abnormal fear constantly poisons and distorts our inner lives. Our problem is not to be rid of fear but, rather to harness and master it.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
What is required from members of Congress and the public alike is a new spirit of devotion to the national welfare beyond party or self-interest.
Evan Bayh
Those who wish to promote the welfare of the people should advance in solidarity with them and select the path most suitable for them. Since the history of our people is different from that of the people of the West, the steps that the two peoples choose to take in order to advance must also be different.
Sun Yat-sen
Welfare makes you dependent upon someone to take care of you.
Charles Evers
I am a little discouraged and irritated at the welfare recipient families growing in size all the time. Those of us who work and pay taxes all the time shouldn’t have to pay for these kids.
Hilmar Moore
Welfare reform happened with reconciliation; half the Democrats voted for it. The Bush tax cuts happened with reconciliation; twelve Democratic Senators voted for it. You didn’t have a real partisan issue on those times that it was used.
Tom Coburn
There are some benefits [that illegal aliens] clearly ought not have…[including] health benefits and welfare benefits and others that serve as a magnet attracting people here from other countries.
Henry Cisneros
Contrary to the prevailing notion that good governance is bad politics, in reality good governance is good politics. A government should work keeping in mind the welfare of future generations, not the next election.
Narendra Modi
The tyranny of a prince in an oligarchy is not so dangerous to the public welfare as the apathy of a citizen in a democracy.
Baron de Montesquieu
It is the purpose of the government to see that not only the legitimate interests of the few are protected but that the welfare and rights of the many are conserved.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
The agencies are the Walmarts of the welfare agency
Eva Cox
Ten years ago, Republicans decided it was time to reform our broken welfare system and give welfare recipients the tools they needed to escape the system and build a better life.
Todd Tiahrt
People are tired of wasteful government programs and welfare chiselers, and they are angry about the constant spiral of taxes and government regulations, arrogant bureaucrats, and public officials who think all of mankind’s problems can be solved by throwing the taxpayers dollars at them.
Ronald Reagan
The visions of the INFJs tend to concern human welfare, and their contributions are likely to be made independent of a mass movement.
Isabel Briggs Myers
We do know the welfare system, starting in the ’60s, basically encouraged the dissolution of marriage, encouraged families to separate in order to get the benefits.
Scott Garrett
The more we take the welfare of others to heart and work for their benefit, the more benefit we derive for ourselves. This is a fact that we can see.
Dalai Lama
We are not for cutting social welfare and are for more health care.
Geert Wilders
What is supposed to happen in a democracy is that each sovereign citizen will always vote in the public interest for the safety and welfare of all. But what does happen is that he votes his own self-interest as he sees it… which for the majority translates as ‘Bread and Circuses’.
Robert A. Heinlein
I finally understand / for a woman it ain’t easy tryin to raise a man / You always was committed / A poor single mother on welfare, tell me how ya did it / There’s no way I can pay you back / But the plan is to show you that I understand / You are appreciated
Tupac Shakur
In the 1880s, people all over the world looked to America for inspiration. Its very existence was proof that it was possible to have a relatively free and peaceful country. No income tax, no foreign wars, no welfare state, no intrusions on civil liberties.
Harry Browne
To have created a Welfare State was a great achievement; but we must go on to create a Welfare Planet.
George Mikes
I was the first tenured woman at Columbia. That was 1972; every law school was looking for its woman. Why? Because Stan Pottinger, who was then head of the office for civil rights of the Department of Health, Education and Welfare, was enforcing the Nixon government contract program.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg
Crime, family dissolution, welfare, and low levels of social organization are fundamentally a consequence of the disappearance of work.
William Julius Wilson
Understand now, I’m purely a fiction writer and do not profess to be an earnest student of political science, but I believe strongly that such a law as one prohibiting liquor is foolish, and all the writers, keenly interested in human welfare whom I know, laugh at the prohibition law.
F. Scott Fitzgerald
People think I built the Pack, because I’m the guy who has the welfare of all shapeshifters in mind. They’re wrong. Everything I built, I did so that when I mate and have children, nobody can touch my family. (…) I built all this so I can protect you.
Ilona Andrews
Most child welfare agencies tend to embrace secrecy because the people who lead them tend to be mediocre and don’t want you to see how poor a job they are doing.
Richard Wexler
Conservatives should insist that defense spending be examined with the same seriousness that we demand in examining the books of those government agencies that spend taxpayer money in the name of welfare, the environment, or education.
Grover Norquist
My childhood was rough, we were poor and my parents were alcoholics, but nobody was mean. I knew I was loved. We were on welfare, but I never felt abandoned or unloved.
Carol Burnett
we come to realize that other people’s welfare is just as important as our own. In helping them, we help ourselves. In helping ourselves, we help the world.
Pema Chodron
Let our pupil be taught that he does not belong to himself, but that he is public property. Let him be taught to love his family, but let him be taught at the same time that he must forsake and even forget them when the welfare of his country requires it.
Benjamin Rush
Beneficience removes evils, introduces the practice of virtue, and adds to general welfare and civilization.
Dayananda Saraswati
To increase the power, develop the resources and promote the happiness of a Confederacy, it is requisite there should be so much of homogeneity that the welfare of every portion would be the aim of the whole.
Jefferson Davis
If we develop concern for other people’s welfare, share other people’s
suffering, and help them, ultimately we will benefit. If we think only
of ourselves and forget about others, ultimately we will lose. The more
we care for the happiness of others, the greater our own sense of
well-being becomes.
Dalai Lama
Unless all the discoveries that you make have the welfare of the poor as the end in view, all your workshops will be really no better than Satan’s workshops.
Mahatma Gandhi
The Women’s March in Washington was about giving power to the collective voices of women everywhere to demand that our leaders put the interests, safety, and welfare of all Americans first.
Lucy McBath
The conservative revolution that Reagan helped usher in gained traction because Reagan’s central insight – that the liberal welfare state had grown complacent and overly bureaucratic, with Democratic policy makers more obsessed with slicing the economic pie than with growing the pie – contained a good deal of truth.
Barack Obama
I’m a black, gay woman. I think the only way to make the GOP hate me more is if I sent them a video of me rolling around on a pile of welfare checks.
Wanda Sykes
KFC has no excuse for refusing to adopt these basic, minimal animal-welfare standards … After two years of fruitless negotiations with the company, we’re trying a more personal approach.
Bruce Friedrich
Any strategy to reduce intergenerational poverty has to be centered on work, not welfare–not only because work provides independence and income but also because work provides order, structure, dignity, and opportunities for growth in people’s lives.
Barack Obama
Nature teaches beasts to know their friends.
William Shakespeare
During 1989, my mother, who was exceedingly good at finding these free programs – you know, we were on welfare, just trying to get through – but she would find these amazing programs. She sent me to the Soviet Union at the age of 12 to go study in the forest of then-Leningrad with 50 other Soviet kids.
Kehinde Wiley
I wrote my thesis on welfare policy.
Bob McDonnell
Now as a former welfare recipient, I don’t have a problem with expecting people to work to earn money. But where I come from we call that a job, not volunteerism.
LZ Granderson
Someone who will take responsibility for the real welfare of the American people, to be honest with them. I’d like to have that adult in the room.
Steve Wynn
You wouldn’t want to underestimate the perfidy of the government. I have no doubt that the government will need to increase revenues substantially to avoid default on either debt or social welfare promises. How they will increase those revenues, I can’t predict.
Porter Stansberry
I own a flat in Ansal plaza in Shyamla Hills area and am also a member of Lakeview Enclave Welfare Society but I didn’t know that there was a separate society of E-block.
Raza Murad
The Modi government started several welfare schemes for poor and realised the dream of corruption-free India.
Yogi Adityanath
Living with animals can be a wonderful experience, especially if we choose to learn the valuable lessons animals teach through their natural enthusiasm, grace, resourcefulness, affection and forgiveness.
Richard Pitcairn
Even [Bill] Clinton ran on my program of “workfare instead of welfare.” Of which I was the first American politician, starting in 1989, who brought that up. And that helped him get elected.
David Duke
True security is based on people’s welfare – on a thriving economy, on strong public health and education programmes, and on fundamental respect for our common humanity. Development, peace, disarmament, reconciliation and justice are not separate from security; they help to underpin it.
Ban Ki-moon
If I am outspoken of the dangers of intemperance to members of our armed forces, it is because we are all especially concerned for the welfare of those who are risking their lives in the cause of freedom.
William Lyon Mackenzie King
How will the exit affect thousands of British pensioners living in Portugal or Spain who will lose their access to the welfare and health systems? Fifty-three free-trade agreements, which were negotiated by the EU on behalf of all Member States, are also hanging in the balance for the UK.
Jean-Claude Juncker
Under our system every voter and officeholder is a man who has demonstrated through voluntary and difficult service that he places the welfare of the group ahead of personal advantage.
Robert A. Heinlein
We will not cut one penny from the safety net until we’ve cut every penny from corporate welfare.
Rand Paul
The function of intellect is to provide a means of modifying our reactions to the circumstances of life, so that we may secure pleasure, the symptom of welfare.
Edward Thorndike
While Obama’s economic policies have failed to spur growth, our anti-poverty programs have long failed to promote upward mobility and move people from welfare to work.
Charles Boustany
Child poverty in the United States declined after the work requirement was put in there. People realized that they had to work and people went out and worked and they got off welfare.
Thomas Sowell
My duties are wider than those of the Pope. The Pope is only concerned with the spiritual welfare of his flock.
Aga Khan IV
We cannot be the welfare state of the planet.
Maxime Bernier
Thatcher had broken the miners’ union, all but crushed the Labour Party, dramatically cut back the welfare state, even flirted with a poll tax. In the circles I ran in, Reagan was mocked as a childish dolt. Thatcher was despised.
Jon Weisman
Far too many well-connected businesses are feeding at the federal trough. By addressing corporate welfare as well as other forms of welfare, we would add a whole new level of understanding to the notion of entitlement reform.
Charles Koch
God works in mysterious ways but at least he works, he’s never on welfare in a mysterious way.
Stephen Colbert
How would the US be different today if people coming off the boat were greeted with a welfare check instead of a shovel?
James M. Buchanan
To prevent government from becoming corrupt and tyrannous, its organization and methods should be as simple as possible, its functions be restricted to those necessary to the common welfare, and in all its parts it should be kept as close to the people and as directly within their control as may be.
Henry George
To be successful in the family the father must have the welfare of each family member at heart and his decisions and plans must be based upon what is best for them.
Helen Andelin
Child welfare ought really to cover all sorts of topics, such as better water and sanitation and good roads, and clean streets and public parks and playgrounds.
Marjory Stoneman Douglas
I often think that the Greatest Generation gave birth to the Crappiest Generation, the stinky hippies with their slacktivism and demand for government welfare in the name of freedom.
Dana Loesch
There ought to be a thoughtful welfare-reform debate that doesn’t turn into something that could be called scapegoating.
Jack Kemp
The nation relies upon public discussion as one of the indispensable means to attain correct solutions to problems of social welfare. Curtailment of free speech limits this open discussion. Our whole history teaches that adjustment of social relations through reason is possible when free speech is maintained.
Stanley Forman Reed
I want to increase our spending on research and development by 25%. That’s something the U.S. does very well. That dynamism alongside a welfare state in the European community – that’s the synthesis I want to achieve.
Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero
My resolve is to work for the development of the state and the welfare of the people, so I will tackle all challenges. That’s my vision.
Yogi Adityanath
Astonishingly, American taxpayers now will be forced to finance a multi-billion dollar jobs program in Iraq. Suddenly the war is about jobs. We export our manufacturing jobs to Asia, and now we plan to export our welfare jobs to Iraq, all at the expense of the poor and the middle class here at home.
Ron Paul
Our whole way of life today is dedicated to the removal of risk. Cradle to grave we are supported, insulated, and isolated from the risks of life – and if we fail, our government stands ready with Bandaids of every size.
Shirley Temple
As custodians of the planet it is our responsibility to deal with all species with kindness, love, and compassion. That these animals suffer through human cruelty is beyond understanding. Please help to stop this madness.
Richard Gere
But when I see a story on welfare on television, they only show black people.
Charles Barkley
It’s never been clearer that unrestrained market forces do not produce the kind of societies we aspire to – economically stable and socially inclusive, where citizens have access to secure jobs with the dignity of a fair wage and a welfare safety net.
Sharan Burrow
Once we lose our border protection, the road to citizenship, voting and welfare benefits for a flood of new immigrants will be all but paved.
Charlie Kirk
We should vote for the welfare of the country, not for the welfare of the party.
Michael Caine
If conservationists will attempt to resume responsibility for their need to eat, they will be led back fairly directly to all their previous concerns for the welfare of nature.
Wendell Berry
I am someone who’s very positive about business, as a social Democrat. I do like the safety net of the welfare system and people setting things and creating business, and that’s what I try to do with my own work: export it around the world from the U.K.
Eddie Izzard
True benevolence or compassion, extends itself through the whole of existence and sympathizes with the distress of every creature capable of sensation.
Joseph Addison
Our welfare and health services must work for everyone. That means ensuring that all the help and support is wrapped around the person when they need them, not trying to make the person fit the system.
Penny Mordaunt
Work is the inevitable condition of human life, the true source of human welfare.
Leo Tolstoy
I stated that I’m a libertarian Republican, which means I believe in a series of issues, such as smaller government, constraint on budget deficits, free markets, globalization, and a whole series of other things, including welfare reform.
Alan Greenspan
Not only is your own happiness and welfare related to others, but the more you help them, the happier you will be.
Dalai Lama
To maximise global social welfare, policymakers should strongly encourage the diffusion of knowledge from developed to developing countries.
Joseph Stiglitz
My mother only had a third grade education, was illiterate, worked as a domestic 2 to 3 jobs at a time, because she didn’t want to be on welfare, because she never saw people who went on welfare come off of welfare, and she just didn’t want to have her life controlled in that fashion.
Benjamin Carson
I am angry about the mammoth, out-of-control social welfare entitlement programs from Washington, D.C., that were supposed to solve our problems. The obvious truth is these impractical, politically motivated programs have irreparably damaged the fabric of our black society and community.
Allen West
I came to the US as an immigrant and I recall vividly those first few years in California, the brief time we spent on welfare, and the difficult task of assimilating into a new culture.
Khaled Hosseini
Being reliant on legal aid is probably inconceivable to most of us. But this is no different from other branches of the welfare state established at the same time as our legal aid system – being diagnosed with a major illness and needing the NHS, or losing a job and needing the support of social security.
Sadiq Khan
The future of Norway isn’t about competing on being the cheapest but the most innovative. We have an expensive welfare state, and the only answer to continue that way is to become more competitive, especially on knowledge.
Erna Solberg
If Congress can employ money indefinitely to the general welfare… they may appoint teachers in every state… The powers of Congress would subvert the very foundation, the very nature of the limited government established by the people of America.
James Madison
God loved the birds and invented trees. Man loved the birds and invented cages.
Jacques Deval
When we give a subsidy, the benefits to the public ought to exceed the benefits to the company. When it doesn’t, that’s our definition of corporate welfare.
John Kasich
It is my deliberate opinion that the one essential requisite of human welfare in all ways is scientific knowledge of human nature.
Harriet Martineau
If . . . a principle of true Religion [i.e., true Christianity] should . . . gain ground, there is no estimating the effects on public morals, and the consequent influence on our political welfare.
William Wilberforce
I believe that the essence of government lies with unceasing concern for the welfare and dignity and decency and innate integrity of life for every individual. I dont like to say this and wish I didnt have to add these words to make it clear but I willregardless of color, creed, ancestry, sex or age.
Lyndon B. Johnson
Chankaya is referring there to the probibition of entry of the untrustworthy in the counsel-room. Disloyal persons foolishly speak out the secrets of the counsel not knowing the harmful effects of the same. Disclosing the secrets of the counsel mars the welfare of the country.
The moment we let go of our obsessive concern for our own welfare, our mind naturally relaxes and becomes lighter.
Geshe Kelsang Gyatso
we’re focusing too much energy on the symptom rather than the disease: Our real enemy is poverty, not welfare.
Cathy McMorris Rodgers
For years I thought what was good for our country was good for General Motors and vice versa. The difference did not exist. Our company is too big. It goes with the welfare of the country.
Charles Erwin Wilson
In reality, student loan forgiveness is welfare for the rich: a federal mandate that people who will make less money on average over the course of their lives bail out people who will make more money on average over the course of their lives.
Michael J. Knowles
The stark truth is that as long as the welfare state makes it possible for young women – or teenage girls – to have children without a husband and survive without a job, out-of-wedlock births will remain ruinously high, and the inner city will continue to be marked by crime, poverty, and despair.
David Boaz
The government should spend money earned through taxes on social welfare schemes, create infrastructure and in other priority areas, whether national security or providing good quality healthcare, education or water.
Anurag Thakur
I mean, she’s giving and caring and genuinely concerned about the welfare of others. I can’t be with someone like that.
Jerry Seinfeld
The economic welfare of all our people must ultimately stem not from government programs, but from the wealth created by a vigorous private sector.
Ronald Reagan
The DMK is interested only in the welfare of a single family.
J. Jayalalithaa
A dog has the soul of a philosopher.
The consequences for human welfare involved in questions about human capital spillovers are simply staggering. Once one starts to think about them, it’s hard to think of anything else
Robert Lucas, Jr.
It is necessary for the welfare of the nation that men’s lives be based on the principles of the Bible. No man, educated or uneducated, can afford to be ignorant of the Bible.
Theodore Roosevelt
They too, are created by the same loving hand of God which Created us…It is our duty to Protect Them and to promote their well-being.
Mother Teresa
A good job is more than just a paycheck. A good job fosters independence and discipline, and contributes to the health of the community. A good job is a means to provide for the health and welfare of your family, to own a home, and save for retirement.
James H. Douglas, Jr.
In fact there are beautiful people in this world doing incredibly selfless acts over and over and over. Dedicating their lives completely for the welfare and happiness of others.
Tenzin Palmo
Lobbying, protesting, letter-writing, American media, civil disobedience, and preaching pacifism ad nauseum, along with EDUCATION is the most effective way to enlighten the masses. Welfare concessions/campaigns, are counterproductive and simply ineffective in this day and age.
Gary Yourofsky
I left Delhi, in 1971, shortly after Collective Choice and Social Welfare was published in 1970.
Amartya Sen
