Quote of the moment
... the trouble is that most people in this country think that we can stay out of wars in other parts of the world. Even if we stay out of it and save our own skins, we cannot escape the conditions which will undoubtedly exist in other parts of the world and which will react against us.... We are all of us selfish ... and if we can save our own skins, the rest of the world can go. The best we can do is to realize nobody can save his own skin alone. We must all hang together.
~ Eleanor Roosevelt (1884–1962), U.S. First Lady, author, and speaker. As quoted in Eleanor and Franklin, ch. 47, by Joseph P. Lash (1971).
