+ 377 No herb will cure love


+ 367 If I'd have went on the ice when this thing happened, someone would have speared me or something. It's a great feeling of accomplishment and pride. They had to do it; it was their moment. Herb Brooks


+ 343 American history contains much matter for pride and congratulation, and much matter for regret and humiliation. Herbert Croly


+ 330 We are not to expect to be translated from despotism to liberty in a featherbed. Thomas Jefferson


+ 224 Food will win the war. Herbert Hoover


+ 336 Nor are liberal ideals alone sufficient: Ours is a practical people, to whom ideals furnish the theory of political action, upon which they want not only firm assurance, but also effective practice. They want programmes, but they want action to flow from them. They want constructive common sense. They want the development of the common will, not the views of a single individual. They are beginning to realize that words without action are the assassins of idealism. On the other side, they are equally disgusted with seeking for power by destructive criticism, demagoguery, specious promises and sham. Herbert Hoover


+ 441 You convey too great a compliment when you say that I have earned the right to the presidential nomination. No man can establish such an obligation upon any part of the American people. My country owes me no debt. It gave me, as it gives every boy and girl, a chance. It gave me schooling, independence of action, opportunity for service and honor. In no other land could a boy from a country village, without inheritance or influential friends, look forward with unbounded hope. My whole life has taught me what America means. I am indebted to my country beyond any human power to repay. Herbert Hoover


+ 371 I have... instituted systematic, voluntary measures of cooperation with the business institutions and with State and municipal authorities to make certain that fundamental businesses of the country shall continue as usual, that wages and therefore consuming power shall not be reduced, and that a special effort shall be made to expand construction work in order to assist in equalizing other deficits in employment... I am convinced that through these measures we have reestablished confidence. Wages should remain stable. A very large degree of industrial unemployment and suffering which would otherwise have occurred has been prevented. Agricultural prices have reflected the returning confidence. The measures taken must be vigorously pursued until normal conditions are restored. Herbert Hoover


+ 346 While the crash only took place six months ago, I am convinced we have now passed the worst and with continued unity of effort we shall rapidly recover. There is one certainty of the future of a people of the resources, intelligence and character of the people of the United States—that is, prosperity. Herbert Hoover


+ 332 The American people are doing their job today. They should be given a chance to show whether they wish to preserve the principles of individual and local responsibility and mutual self-help before they embark on what I believe to be a disastrous system. I feel sure they will succeed if given the opportunity. Herbert Hoover


+ 366 If, by the grace of God, we have passed the worst of this storm, the future months will be easy. If we shall be called upon to endure more of this period, we must gird ourselves for even greater effort, for today we are writing the introduction to the future history of civilization in America. The question is whether that history shall be written in terms of individual responsibility, and the capacity of the Nation for voluntary cooperative action, or whether it shall be written in terms of futile attempt to cure poverty by the enactment of law, instead of the maintained and protected initiative of our people. Herbert Hoover


+ 259 Let me remind you that credit is the lifeblood of business, the lifeblood of prices and jobs. Herbert Hoover


+ 250 Older men declare war. But it is youth that must fight and die. Herbert Hoover


+ 339 You cannot extend the mastery of government over the daily life of a people without somewhere making it master of people's souls and thoughts.… Every step in that direction poisons the very roots of liberalism. It poisons political equality, free speech, free press, and equality of opportunity. It is the road not to more liberty but to less liberty. Herbert Hoover


+ 248 A good many things go around in the dark besides Santa Claus. Herbert Hoover


+ 332 Blessed are the young, for they shall inherit the national debt. Herbert Hoover


+ 278 Older men declare war. But it is youth that must fight and die. And it is youth who must inherit the tribulation, the sorrow and the triumphs that are the aftermath of war. Herbert Hoover


+ 328 What this country needs is a great poem. John Brown’s Body was a step in the right direction. I’ve read it once, and I’m reading it again. But it’s too long to do what I mean. You can’t thrill people in 300 pages... The limit is about 300 words. Kipling’s “Recessional” really did something to England when it was published. It helped them through a bad time. Let me know if you find any great poems lying around. Herbert Hoover


+ 280 The thing I enjoyed most were visits from children. They did not want public office. Herbert Hoover


+ 224 Being a politician is a poor profession. Being a public servant is a noble one. Herbert Hoover


+ 219 Honor is not the exclusive property of any political party. Herbert Hoover


+ 331 When there is a lack of honor in government, the morals of the whole people are poisoned. Herbert Hoover


+ 297 Many years ago, I concluded that a few hair shirts were part of the mental wardrobe of every man. The president differs from other men in that he has a more extensive wardrobe. Herbert Hoover


+ 294 About the time we can make the ends meet, somebody moves the ends. Herbert Hoover


+ 246 I outlived the bastards. Herbert Hoover


+ 271 I’m the only person of distinction who’s ever had a depression named for him. Herbert Hoover


+ 277 Our country has deliberately undertaken a great social and economic experiment, noble in motive and far-reaching in purpose. Herbert Hoover


+ 325 With impressive proof on all sides of magnificent progress, no one can rightly deny the fundamental correctness of our economic system. Herbert Hoover


+ 350 The swimming hole is still in use. It has the same mudbank. It is still impossible to dress without carrying mud home in one’s inner garments. As an engineer I could devise improvements for that swimming hole. But I doubt if the decrease in mother’s grief at the homecoming of muddy boys would compensate the inherent joys of getting muddy. Herbert Hoover


+ 359 Liberalism should be found not striving to spread bureaucracy but striving to set bounds to it. True liberalism seeks all legitimate freedom first in the confident belief that without such freedom the pursuit of all other blessings and benefits is vain. That belief is the foundation of all American progress, political as well as economic. Herbert Hoover


+ 315 In its broad aspects, the proper feeding of children revolves around a public recognition of the interdependence of the human animal upon his cattle. The white race cannot survive without dairy products. Herbert Hoover


+ 327 It is possible to tell things by a handshake. I like the "looking in the eye" syndrome. It conveys interest. I like the firm, though not bone crushing shake. The bone crusher is trying too hard to "macho it.: The clammy or diffident handshake — fairly or unfairly — get me off to a bad start with a person. George Herbert Walker Bush


+ 305 We must act on what we know. I take as my guide the hope of a saint: In crucial things, unity; in important things, diversity; in all things, generosity. George Herbert Walker Bush


+ 456 To all who mourn a son, a brother, a husband, a father, a friend — I can only offer you the gratitude of a nation, for your loved one served his country with distinction and honor. George Herbert Walker Bush


+ 227 Of course, Americans have no monopoly of patriotic enthusiasm and good faith. Herbert Croly


+ 268 Training was a time where resolutions made in the enthusiasm of an inspired moment were put to personal test. Herb Elliott


+ 269 The more you accept herb, the more you accept rastafari. Bob Marley


+ 296 All dese governments and dis this and that, these people that say they're here to help, why them say you cannot smoke the herb? Herb... herb is a plant, you know? And when me check it, me can't find no reason. All them say is, 'it make you rebel'. Against what? Bob Marley


+ 259 Alcohol make you drunk, man. It don't make you meditate, it just make you drunk. Herb is more a consciousness. Bob Marley


+ 205 The shortest answer is doing. Lord Herbert


+ 240 About the time we can make the ends meet, somebody moves the ends. Herbert Hoover


+ 254 And God said, Let the earth sprout vegetation, seed yielding herbs and fruit trees producing fruit according to its kind in which its seed is found, on the earth, and it was so. Bereshit 1:11


+ 229 And the earth gave forth vegetation, seed yielding herbs according to its kind, and trees producing fruit, in which its seed is found, according to its kind, and God saw that it was good. Bereshit 1:12


+ 132 And on this night, they shall eat the flesh, roasted over the fire, and unleavened cakes; with bitter herbs they shall eat it. Shemot 12:8
