The Buck Stops Here

"Most of my own ideas on how the world runs I obtained very early in life from the Bible, the King James version of the Old and New Testaments. The Bible is, among other things, one of the greatest documents of history. Every trouble that humanity is heir to is set out in the Bible. The remedy is there, too, if you know where to find it. I read the Bible at least a dozen times, and maybe more, before I was fifteen years old. The Bible must be read over and over again to get the full meaning out of it. The same is true of the Constitution of the United States.

And the moral code that is in the Old and New Testaments is needed by all mankind. If civilization is to continue, the majority of the people of the world must have a moral code by which to live, and by which to act. The moral code set forth in the Bible is unequalled. Of course, these youngsters in whom I am so vitally interested will be brought up on a moral code, I hope, based on the great code of the Old and and New Testament."
