Empowering "We the People"

The ‘Simple’ Solution to America’s Complex Problems: by President Calvin Coolidge

The ‘Simple’ Solution to America’s Complex Problems:

We do not need more material development,
we need more spiritual development.
We do not need more intellectual power,
we need more moral power.
We do not need more knowledge,
we need more character.
We do not need more government,
we need more culture.
We do not need more law,
we need more religion.

We do not need more of the things that are seen,
we need more of the things that are unseen.
It is on that side of life that it is desirable
If that side is strengthened,
the other side will take care of itself.
It is that side which is
the foundation of all else.
If the foundation be firm,
the superstructure will stand.

–Calvin Coolidge
