Цитаты Kirby Page

„Prevailing customs and existing institutions are threatened by pioneers and prophets as well as by robbers and murderers, with the result that saints and sinners have often been thrust into adjoining cells.“

—  Kirby Page
Individualism and Socialism (1933), Context: Prevailing customs and existing institutions are threatened by pioneers and prophets as well as by robbers and murderers, with the result that saints and sinners have often been thrust into adjoining cells. The crucifixion of Jesus between two thieves is the supreme illustration of a historic truth that nobility and depravity have often received the same punishment.

„World government must progressively be established, common problems must be solved by common action, economic and racial justice and fellowship must be achieved… empires must be transformed into commonwealths“

—  Kirby Page
Now is the Time to Prevent a Third World War (1950), Context: World government must progressively be established, common problems must be solved by common action, economic and racial justice and fellowship must be achieved... empires must be transformed into commonwealths, the race of armaments must be stopped and the system of balance-of-armed-power must be brought to an end, the churches must take Jesus seriously by trusting goodwill and pacific means and by disentangling themselves from the war system, a mighty movement of peoples must be created so that governments will maintain friendly and cooperative relations and will refrain from hostile and provocative actions.... Now is the time to prevent a third world war.

„Imperialist powers are blinded by tradition, prestige and self-interest, and vainly imagine that it is for the good of humanity that they should perpetuate their rule“

—  Kirby Page
The Personality of Jesus (1932), Context: Imperialist powers are blinded by tradition, prestige and self-interest, and vainly imagine that it is for the good of humanity that they should perpetuate their rule and continue to bear "the white man's burden." Their assumption of superiority and the contemptuous way in which they often treat the "natives" is humiliating and degrading.

„By this standard any thought or act may safely be judged.“

—  Kirby Page
Something More, A Consideration of the Vast, Undeveloped Resources of Life (1920), Context: It is significant that the Great Teacher does not draw up a code of laws or list or sins. Nowhere does Jesus say explicitly that human slavery is a sin, or that the employment of little children for fourteen hours a day in a factory is a sin. He deals in general principles concerning the great fundamentals of life. So clear is his teaching, however, that there can be no doubt as to what he thinks of human slavery or the oppression of little children. In the teaching of Jesus, life is relationship, dwelling on friendly and affectionate terms with God, with ourselves, and with our fellowmen. Anything which destroys this relationship is sin. By this standard any thought or act may safely be judged. p. 84-85

„Instead of spending our money on preparedness to fight, we should pour out billions in a common effort to solve common problems around the earth… on the scale of present preparations for total war.“

—  Kirby Page
What Does God Want Us to Do About Russia? (1948), Context: Instead of spending our money on preparedness to fight, we should pour out billions in a common effort to solve common problems around the earth... on the scale of present preparations for total war.... This vast sum should be spent on food, clothing, shelter, medicine, seed, fertilizer, livestock, machinery, tools and other requirements of efficient production and distribution.... Instead of spending billions on preparedness to wage war with pestilence, vast sums should be spent on health measures and the eradication of plague from the face of the earth.

„The war method substitutes the doctrine of necessity for ethical ideals. …That is right which contributes to victory; that is wrong which magnifies the threat of defeat.“

—  Kirby Page
Must We Go to War? (1937), Context: The war method substitutes the doctrine of necessity for ethical ideals.... That is right which contributes to victory; that is wrong which magnifies the threat of defeat.

„The most tragic waste… is in the spiritual lives of men.“

—  Kirby Page
Something More, A Consideration of the Vast, Undeveloped Resources of Life (1920), Context: The most tragic waste... is in the spiritual lives of men. Men who have the capacity for sonship and brotherhood are living as aliens and enemies, men who have the capacity for companionship are living as hermits, men who have the capacity for mighty victories are living as helpless slaves, men who have the capacity for service are living as parasites. Man is only a small fraction of what he might be. p. 83

„It is better to run the risks of doing right.“

—  Kirby Page
What Does God Want Us to Do About Russia? (1948), Context: To depend upon mutual aid is right. It is better to run the risks of doing right.

„By his own experience of God and his estimate of man, by his emphasis upon and practice of brotherhood, by his repudiation of hatred and violence, while attacking“

—  Kirby Page
The Personality of Jesus (1932), Context: By his own experience of God and his estimate of man, by his emphasis upon and practice of brotherhood, by his repudiation of hatred and violence, while attacking with audacity deeply entrenched inequities, and by his vicarious suffering on the cross, Jesus awakens, challenges and inspires us to take up the cross and follow in his sacrificially redemptive steps. Thus we are saved and thus society must be redeemed.

„These weapons of annihilation must be used offensively. And against their use no effective defense is possible.“

—  Kirby Page
What Does God Want Us to Do About Russia? (1948), Context: It is impossible to use an atomic bomb here to defend the population of our own city. Likewise we cannot use our bacterial weapons here in our own country. These weapons of annihilation must be used offensively. And against their use no effective defense is possible.

„Distinguish between the outlawry of war and the abolition of war. The former is only a step in the direction of the latter.“

—  Kirby Page
An American Peace Policy (1925), Context: Distinguish between the outlawry of war and the abolition of war. The former is only a step in the direction of the latter. An international treaty declaring war to be a public crime will no more abolish international violence than laws against murder have abolished all killing of one individual by another. There is general agreement, however, that the negotiation of an international treaty outlawing war would constitute an enormous stride toward peace.

„Can the use of physical force ever be reconciled with the family spirit?“

—  Kirby Page
Jesus or Christianity: A Study in Contrasts (1929), Context: Can the use of physical force ever be reconciled with the family spirit?... On one occasion he appears to have resorted to force himself... It sheds no light upon the question as to whether the taking of life, capital punishment, or war are ever justifiable. The criterion by which Jesus judges every method is this; Can it be used appropriately in the home? p. 21

„Jesus refers to the fact that it is customary for one generation to stone the prophets and for another to erect monuments in their honor.“

—  Kirby Page
Jesus or Christianity: A Study in Contrasts (1929), Context: It seems incredible that a man with such a message and such nobility of character should have been killed as an enemy of society. But is it surprising?... In a memorable passage Jesus refers to the fact that it is customary for one generation to stone the prophets and for another to erect monuments in their honor. p. 23

„Another serious charge against Jesus was that of treason to his country.“

—  Kirby Page
Jesus or Christianity: A Study in Contrasts (1929), Context: Another serious charge against Jesus was that of treason to his country. His admonition to refrain from hatred and retaliation and instead to love the Romans seemed to the patriots of the day nothing less than disloyalty and treachery to his native land... There is little doubt as to what would have happened to an American citizen early in 1918 if he had arisen in a Liberty Loan mass meeting and pleaded for the immediate cessation of hostilities and protested against the hatred being manifested toward the Germans. p. 27

„Sufficient private property in users' commodities is dependent upon the abolition of private property in primary means of production and distribution.“

—  Kirby Page
Property (1935), Context: Sufficient private property in users' commodities is dependent upon the abolition of private property in primary means of production and distribution. With less private property, we may have more private property and make available plenty for everyone.

„The menace inherent in any form of coercion is greatly reduced if those who act in behalf of victims of oppression voluntarily submit to suffering.“

—  Kirby Page
The Personality of Jesus (1932), Context: The menace inherent in any form of coercion is greatly reduced if those who act in behalf of victims of oppression voluntarily submit to suffering. Mahatma Gandhi... furnishes the most illuminating contemporary example...
