You Are Never Dedicated To Something You Have Complete Confidence In. No One Is Fanatically Shouting That The Sun Is Going To Rise Tomorrow. They Know It Is Going To Rise Tomorrow.

From Mount Hollywood, Los Angeles Looks Rather Nice, Enveloped In A Haze Of Changing Colors. Actually, And In Spite Of All The Healthful Sunshine And Ocean Breezes, It Is A Bad Place - Full Of Old, Dying People, Who Were Born Old Of Tired Pioneer Parents, Victims Of America - Full Of Curious Wild And Poisonous Growths, Decadent Religious Cults And Fake Science, And Wildcat Enterprises, Which, With Their Aim For Quick Profit, Are Doomed To Collapse And Drag Down Multitudes Of People.

What Do I Believe As An American I Believe In Generosity, In Liberty, In The Rights Of Man. These Are Social And Political Faiths That Are Part Of Me, As They Are, I Suppose, Part Of All Of Us. Such Beliefs Are Easy To Express. But Part Of Me Too Is My Relation To All Life, My Religion. And This Is Not So Easy To Talk About. Religious Experience Is Highly Intimate And, For Me, Ready Words Are Not At Hand.
~ Adlai Ewing Stevenson
There Is A Schizophrenic Nature In Modern Politics. A Leader Is Expected To Have A Religious Faith But He Is Not Supposed To Let It Influence Him In His Duties. Somehow, The Truths That Determine Everything Else About His Existence Are Not Allowed To Influence How He Conducts Himself In Public Life. Not Only That, His Principles Are Usually Considered So Personal That The Public Is Not Even Allowed To Know For Certain What They Are. This Passes For Noble Statecraft In Our Time. It Was Once Thought Cowardice.
~ Stephen Mansfield
