"Attitudes are the forerunners of conditions."

"The average estimate themselves by what they do, the above average by what they are."

"An attitude to life which seeks fulfillment in the single-minded pursuit of wealth - in short, materialism - does not fit into this world, because it contains within itself no limiting principle, while the environment in which it is placed is strictly limited."

"The budget evolved from a management tool into an obstacle to management."

"To give aid to every poor man is far beyond the reach and power of every man. Care of the poor is incumbent on society as a whole."
