Pearl S. Buck Quote: “People everywhere do not concern themselves much beyond the common round of everyday, and this is the chief problem for a democratic government, whose success depends upon an informed and responsible citizenry.”
Pearl S. Buck Quote: “It was the secret of her power in this house that she never allowed her will to be felt as absolute. She gave time and the promise of an end, and then she used the time to shape events to her own end.”
Pearl S. Buck Quote: “Can one spit on a smiling face?” he inquired; or he said, “Vengeance cannot last a night’s sleep.”
Pearl S. Buck Quote: “I don’t know, Pierce. But I do know that when men are frightened and discontented they gather around any man who is not afraid.”
Pearl S. Buck Quote: “We were a proud people. We lost our country. Our only hope for return was to keep ourselves a people. The only hope to keep ourselves a people was to keep our common faith in one God, a God of our own. That God has been our country and our nation. In sorrow and wailing and woe for all that we have lost has been our union. And our rabbis have so taught us, generation after generation.”
Pearl S. Buck Quote: “Americans are citizens from the moment they are born, and not when they become twenty-one years of age. By then, if they have not performed the acts of a citizen in a democracy, it is too late. They remain irresponsible and therefore immature. From the first grade on, the child should be taught his duties as a citizen, and given his voice in municipal matters and then in state and nation.”
Pearl S. Buck Quote: “Yes, but there was the land. Money and food are eaten and gone, and if there is not sun and rain in proportion, there is again hunger.”
Pearl S. Buck Quote: “When foreigners come into a nation, the best way is to make them no longer foreign. That is to say, let us marry our young together and let there be children. War is costly, love is cheap.”
Pearl S. Buck Quote: “Ah well, Liang was her husband and she would never have another. Even had she been young and beautiful she would not have run from man to man as women did nowadays. But she was neither young nor beautiful and she was grateful for Liang. It was honorable to be his wife, and if he had a peevish temper at home, he might have been worse. He had never beaten her, and she had learned, after all these years, how to torture him.”
Pearl S. Buck Quote: “It is sweet to be loved, but to be able to love is to possess the life force. I love you. Therefore I am strong. Whatever my age, I am sustained by my own power to love.”
Pearl S. Buck Quote: “I think not everyone can see the whole picture. It has long been said we each see what we look for. You and I, we look at land and think of seed and harvests. A builder looks at the same land and thinks of houses, and a painter of its colors. The priest sees men only as those who need to be saved, and so naturally he sees most clearly those who need to be saved.”
Pearl S. Buck Quote: “It seemed so strange, so endless, this turning of some hidden wheel, this passing on of link caught onto link in some never ending chain that she was dazed with thinking of it even dimly, since she was not one to think into the meanings of what passed before her, but only taking all that came for what it was.”
Pearl S. Buck Quote: “But she would not be hastened. Words were to her things to be caught one by one and released with difficulty.”
Pearl S. Buck Quote: “He had long been her favorite, yet every eunuch knew that the favor of a ruler is less stable than sunlight in early spring. At any moment it can be withdrawn, and as soon can a eunuch’s head tumble from his shoulders.”
Pearl S. Buck Quote: “Ah, because you have suffered is the one reason why you should never make others suffer,” he had said. “Only the small and the mean retaliate for pain.”
Pearl S. Buck Quote: “It is but another war somewhere. Who knows what all this fighting to and fro is about? But so it has been since I was a lad and so will it be after I am dead and well I know it.”
Pearl S. Buck Quote: “At that hour of deep loathing she was healed of all her heat and youth, and she was young no more.”
Pearl S. Buck Quote: “Mind and body were well or ill together.”
Pearl S. Buck Quote: “It is not that we cannot believe,” he replied. “It is that we do not want anything enough. Faith rises from necessity. We have no necessity.”
Pearl S. Buck Quote: “It is better to live than to die, and peace is better than war, and though there are some who deny this as robbers do, the truth remains what it is.”
