Security Is . .

.
Handout 3-2b

"Most people want security in this world, not liberty."
H.L. Mencken

"To keep oneself safe does not mean to bury oneself."
Seneca

"The man who looks for security, even in the mind, is like
a man who would chop off his limbs in order to have artificial ones which will give him no pain or trouble."
Henry Miller
Sunday After the War 1944

"Only in growth, reform, and change, paradoxically enough, is true security to be found."
Anne Morrow Lindbergh


"Security is when I'm very much in love with somebody extraordinary who loves me back."
Shelly Winters

"The quality or state of being secure: as a: freedom from danger: safety b: freedom from fear or anxiety c: freedom from the prospect of being laid off 2. a: something given, deposited, or pledged to make certain the full ownership (as a stock certificate or bond), or pledged to make certain the fulfillment of an obligation 3. a: something that secures: protection b: (1) measures taken to guard against espionage or sabotage, crime, attack, or escape (2): an organization or department whose task is security."
-Merriam Webster's Collegiate Dictionary

"During the cold war, peace and security tended to be defined simply in terms of military might or the balance of terror. Today, we have a greater appreciation for the non-military sources of conflict. We know that lasting peace requires a broader vision, encompassing education and literacy, health and nutrition, human rights and fundamental freedoms. We know that we cannot be secure amidst starvation. We cannot build peace without alleviating poverty. We cannot build freedom on foundations of injustice."
- Kofi Annan,
General Secretary, United Nations

"Not a gift of a cow, nor a gift of land, nor yet a gift of food, is so important as the gift of safety, which is declared to be the great gift among all gifts in the world."
- Panchatantra 5th Century

"Security depends not so much upon how much you have as upon how much you can do without."
- Joseph Wood Krutch
