…Home earth’s only paradise…

     – William Jennings Bryan, In His Image (NY: Fleming Revell Co., 1922), 16.

 It is more important that you trust the Rock of Ages

            than that you know the age of the rocks.

      – William Jennings Bryan, In His Image (NY: Fleming Revell Co., 1922), 39.

 

No mental processes can stop the mad race for money.  Man must be born again. 

     – William Jennings Bryan, In His Image (NY: Fleming Revell Co., 1922), 43.

 

I challenge the doctrine now being taught that we must enter into a mad rivalry with the Old World in the building of battleships, the doctrine that the only way to preserve peace is to get ready for wars that ought never to come!  It is a barbarous brutual, un-Christian doctrine – the doctrine of darkness, not the doctrine of the dawn.

     – William Jennings Bryan, In His Image (NY: Fleming Revell Co., 1922), 192.

 

Love of money is probably more responsible for modern wars than any other one cause…the blood of many being shed to enrich a few.  

      – William Jennings Bryan, In His Image (NY: Fleming Revell Co., 1922), 233.

William Jennings Bryan on this date 7/8/1896 at the Democratic National Convention, gave his famous speech 1896, supporting “the little man” of America, “You shall not crucify mankind upon a cross of gold.”

You will serve God, or you will serve gold.

Make your contrary assertions ever so bold,

And claim the truth has not been told.

But the love of money is the root of all evil,

The love of gold leads directly to the devil.

Gold can be shaped in various known forms,

It can appear average, or far from the norms,

One is pulled to the sciences, another to the arts,

One is lulled to amalgamations, one leaves things in parts,

One seeks gold directly, another seems it to “hate,”

But gold’s the one attraction of sinners, early or late, 

And, you will serve God, or you will serve gold. – eab, 5/21/08
