Safely Quote of the Day

Welcome to these Safely Quotes of the Day from my large collection of positive, romantic, and funny quotes.

with the intention of arriving safely
in a pretty and well preserved body,

thoroughly used up, totally worn out,
and loudly proclaiming, "Wow! What a Ride!"
- Hunter S. Thompson

keep what is worth keeping, and then,
with a breath of kindness, blow the rest away.

Expediency asks the question - is it politic?

that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular;
but one must take it BECAUSE it is right.

There is nobody in this country who got rich on their own. Nobody. You built a factory out there - good for you. But I want to be clear. You moved your goods to market on roads the rest of us paid for. You hired workers the rest of us paid to educate. You were safe in your factory because of police forces and fire forces that the rest of us paid for. You didn't have to worry that marauding bands would come and seize everything at your factory... Now look. You built a factory and it turned into something terrific or a great idea - God bless! Keep a hunk of it. But part of the underlying social contract is you take a hunk of that and pay forward for the next kid who comes along."
- Elizabeth Warren
