169577. We are prophetic interrogators. Why are so many people hungry? Why are so many people and families in our shelters? Why do we have one of six of our children poor, and one of three of these are children of color? ‘Why?’ is the prophetic question. – Jim Wallis

169578. The media seems to think only abortion and gay marriage are religious issues. Poverty is a moral issue, it’s a faith issue, it’s a religious issue. – Jim Wallis

169579. When evangelical leaders can persuade the president to be concerned about what’s happening in Sudan, or sex trafficking around the world, or HIV-AIDS, that’s a very good thing. I am completely supportive of that. – Jim Wallis

169583. We are a communicating nation which needs access to space, access to the seas. – Malcolm Wallop

169589. We don’t need a nation that has national identity cards. – Malcolm Wallop

169593. The concept of minimum wage is crazy, if you really stop to think about it. If $8 an hour seems right, why not $20 an hour? If it’s coming by order of the government, why stop at any level? Why not just say everyone should get what Gates gets? – Malcolm Wallop

169594. I don’t think the only place to fight for freedom is in the halls of Congress. – Malcolm Wallop

169643. Have I given any symptoms of an avaricious disposition? Have I obtained any grants from the crown since I have been placed at the head of the treasury? Has my conduct been different from that which others in the same station would have followed? – Robert Walpole

169644. I am called repeatedly and insidiously prime and sole minister. – Robert Walpole

169645. I can not, therefore, see how this can be imputed as a crime, or how any of the king’s ministers can be blamed for his doing what the public has no concern in; for if the public be well and faithfully served it has no business to ask by whom. – Robert Walpole

169695. Nothing is more effective than sincere, accurate praise, and nothing is more lame than a cookie-cutter compliment. – Bill Walsh
