Quotations From Karekin Nejdeh (1886-1957)
The morally depraved can also voice noble principles.
Life is constant and endless renewal.
Only the morally irresponsible refuse to understand this.
Without renewal, a nation dies every hour, every minute.
Our political parties either don't understand this or
they have no desire to understand it.
A nation that fails to do what it can and must do
has no right to expect foreign assistance.
Nations that are unwilling to defend their own interests
condemn themselves to death.
When dealing with foreign powers and issues,
our press adopts a permissive, forgiving, and subservient tone.
With our own internal problems, however,
it becomes arrogant, vindictive, vicious.
Life is endless renewal. Where there is no renewal
there will be spiritual paralysis and a slow death.
It is the height of ignorance for a political party
to think that it can deny the value of morality in its own conduct
and maintain moral integrity within its ranks.
To struggle in defense of what is right is not a calamity but a blessing.

Undermining the morality of a nation amounts to
undermining its strength.
