Notable Quotable: This Is Not A Way Of Life At All

News Flash

Today’s notable quotable comes from Dwight Eisenhower, military leader and thirty-fourth President of the United States. This warning was delivered during a speech to the American Society of Newspaper Editors in Washington, D.C. on April 16, 1953.

“Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. The world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hope of its children…This is not a way of life at all, in any true sense. Under the cloud of threatening war, it is humanity hanging from a cross of iron.”


Heartfelt words of great wisdom...

Wise words that would likely be labeled as "soft" and "woke" by some currently in Washington and running for president.
