The Sweat of Our Labors



“Every gun that is made, every warship launched,

And every rocked fired, signifies, in the final sense, a theft

From those who hunger and are not fed,

Those who are cold and are not clothed.

The world in arms is not spending money alone.

It is spending the sweat of its laborers,

The genius of its scientists and the hopes of its children.”


President Eisenhower – 1953 speech to American Society of Newspaper Editors
