Tom Vilsack Quotes and Sayings

I hope you find great value in these Quotes by Tom Vilsack from my large collection of motivational and inspirational quotes and sayings.

Somewhere between 50 to 60 percent of the food you
eat has been touched by immigrant hands,
and it is fair to say some of them are not here as they should be here.
But if you didn't have these folks, you would be spending a lot more -
three,
four or five times more - for food, or we would have
to import food and have all the food security risks.
- Tom Vilsack

People don't understand rural America.
Sixteen percent of our population is rural,
but 40 percent of our military is rural.
I don't believe that's because of a lack of opportunity in rural America.
I believe that's because if you grow up in rural America,
you know you can't just keep taking from the land.
You've got to give something back.
- Tom Vilsack

Going nowhere faster will not get you somewhere.

There is a secret wisdom-of-the-ages
that holds the key to breaking our
cycle of self-imposed suffering.
The secret wisdom is, "Life is not supposed to be fair."
This is not sad news. This is GLORIOUS news!
Life is not broken. Nothing is wrong.
God has not failed, died, or gone on vacation.
The world is working perfectly. We just misunderstood.
Somewhere along the way, someone got the idea that
life was "supposed" to be "fair,"
and all the trouble started -
expectation, disappointment, resentment, anger -
a whole cycle of suffering that began
with the belief that life is "supposed" to be "fair."
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

There is hope and a kind of beauty in there somewhere,
if you look for it.
