Those who support the Patriot Act would do well to remember that quote. And this one: "The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants." Thomas Jefferson "The price of freedom is eternal vigilance." Thomas Jefferson A bunch from Albert Einstien. "A man's ethical behavior should be based effectually on sympathy, education, and social ties; no religious basis is necessary. Man would indeed be in a poor way if he had to be restrained by fear of punishment and hope of reward after death. " "Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius -- and a lot of courage -- to move in the opposite direction." "Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new." "Before God we are all equally wise - and equally foolish." "Heroism on command, senseless violence, and all the loathsome nonsense that goes by the name of patriotism -- how passionately I hate them!" "Few are those who see with their own eyes and feel with their own hearts." "Gravitation cannot be held responsible for people falling in love." "Great spirits have always found violent opposition from mediocrities. The latter cannot understand it when a man does not thoughtlessly submit to hereditary prejudices but honestly and courageously uses his intelligence." "I don't know with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones." "If I have seen farther than others, it is because I was standing on the shoulders of giants." "It is a miracle that curiosity survives formal education." "My religion consists of a humble admiration of the illimitable superior spirit who reveals himself in the slight details we are able to perceive with our frail and feeble mind." "Peace cannot be achieved through violence, it can only be attained through understanding." "Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind." "Problems cannot be solved at the same level of awareness that created them." "Watch the stars, and from them learn. To the Master's honor all must turn, each in its track, without a sound, forever tracing Newton's ground." And now some from George S. Patton. "If everybody is thinking alike, then somebody isn't thinking." " don't give a damn what color you are so long as you get out there and kill those sonsofbitches in green suits!" greeting a Negro battalion, April 9, 1945 "A pint of sweat saves a gallon of blood." "Lead me, follow me, or get out of my way." "It is even harder for the average ape to believe that he has descended from man." "Watch what people are cynical about, and one can often discover what they lack." "Never tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do and they will surprise you with their ingenuity." Immortal words from Bob Dyaln: "I think of a hero as someone who understands the degree of responsibility that comes with his freedom." "A mistake is to commit a misunderstanding." "All I can do is be me, whoever that is." "All the truth in the world adds up to one big lie." "Basically you have to suppress your own ambitions in order to be who you need to be." "Being noticed can be a burden. Jesus got himself crucified because he got himself noticed. So I disappear a lot." "But even the President of the United States sometimes must have to stand naked." "Democracy don't rule the world, You'd better get that in your head; This world is ruled by violence, But I guess that's better left unsaid." "Don't follow leaders, watch your parkin' meters." "I define nothing. Not beauty, not patriotism. I take each thing as it is, without prior rules about what it should be." " don't think the human mind can comprehend the past and the future. They are both just illusions that can manipulate you into thinking theres some kind of change." "I have dined with kings, I've been offered wings. And I've never been too impressed." "I like America, just as everybody else does. I love America, I gotta say that. But America will be judged." "I've never written a political song. Songs can't save the world. I've gone through all that." "In ceremonies of the horsemen, even the pawn must hold a grudge." "Yesterday's just a memory, tomorrow is never what it's supposed to be." "When you cease to exist, then who will you blame?" "There is nothing so stable as change." "Money doesn't talk, it swears." "Maybe in the 90s or possibly in the next century people will look upon the 80s as the age of masturbation, when it was taken to the limit; that might be all that's going on right now in a big way." "It rubs me the wrong way, a camera... It's a frightening thing...Cameras make ghosts out of people." Some of the almost comical quotes that are still serious from Winston Churchill. "A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty." "A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on." "A fanatic is one who can't change his mind and won't change the subject." "A joke is a very serious thing." "He has all the virtues I dislike and none of the vices I admire." "I gather, young man, that you wish to be a Member of Parliament. The first lesson that you must learn is, when I call for statistics about the rate of infant mortality, what I want is proof that fewer babies died when I was Prime Minister than when anyone else was." "If you have an important point to make, don't try to be subtle or clever. Use a pile driver. Hit the point once. Then come back and hit it again. Then hit it a third time - a tremendous whack." "If you're going through hell, keep going." "I like pigs. Dogs look up to us. Cats look down on us. Pigs treat us as equals." "The Americans will always do the right thing... After they've exhausted all the alternatives." "Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing had happened." "Kites rise highest against the wind - not with it." "The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings; the inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries." "We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give." "Thank God, we've won the war" Upon hearing of the attack on Pearl Harbor And one of my favorites: "It's a good thing for an uneducated man to read books of quotations."
