“I swear – by my life and my love of it – that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.” 

 -- John Galt in Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand



“Money is not the tool of the moochers, who claim your product by tears, or of the looters, who take it from you by force.  Money is made possible only by the men who produce.”

 - Francisco d'Anconia in Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand



A creative man is motivated by the desire to achieve, not by the desire to beat others.

“Did you really think we want those laws observed?” said Dr. Ferris.  “We want them to be broken.  You’d better get it straight that it’s not a bunch of boy scouts you’re up against. . . We’re after power and we mean it. . . There’s no way to rule innocent men.  The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals.  Well, when there aren’t enough criminals one makes them.  One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws.  Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens?  What’s there in that for anyone?  But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced or objectively interpreted – and you create a nation of law-breakers – and then you cash in on guilt.  Now that’s the system, Mr. Reardon, that’s the game, and once you understand it, you’ll be much easier to deal with.”

-- Dr. Ferris in Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand



“During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.”

 — George Orwell



“The greatness of America lies not in being more enlightened than any other nation, but rather in her ability to repair her faults.”

— Alexis de Tocqueville



“You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.  You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.  You cannot help the poor man by destroying the rich.  You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.  You cannot build character and courage by taking away man’s initiative and independence.  You cannot help small men by tearing down big men.  You cannot lift the wage earner by pulling down the wage payer.  You cannot keep out of trouble by spending more than your income.  You cannot establish security on borrowed money.  You cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they will not do for themselves.”

— William J. H. Boetcker (1916)



“If I were the Devil, I'd take from those who have and give to those who wanted until I had killed the incentive of the ambitious.”

 -Paul Harvey, 1964




“The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed, and hence clamorous to be led to safety, by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.”

One of the penalties of not participating in politics is that you will be governed by your inferiors.

 -- Thomas Stonewall Jackson

— Daniel Webster



“The people never give up their liberties but under some delusion.”

— Edmund Burke



“Progress, far from consisting in change, depends on retentiveness.  When experience is not retained, as among savages, infancy is perpetual.  Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”

— George Santayana



“Be always sure you are right, then go ahead.”

-- Davy Crockett



I would rather be beaten and be a man than to be elected and be a little puppy dog.  I have always supported measures and principles and not men.  I have acted fearless and independent and I never will regret my course.  I would rather be politically buried than to be hypocritically immortalized.

“Since you have chosen to elect a man with a timber toe to succeed me, you may all go to hell and I will go to Texas”.

“None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free”.

-- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe



“It’s unwise to pay too much but it’s unwise to pay too little.  When you pay too much you lose a little money; that is all.  When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing you bought it to do.  The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot.  It can’t be done.  If you deal with the lowest bidder, it’s well to add something for the risk you run.  And if you do that, you will have enough to pay for something better!”

-- John Ruskin



“The common law is the will of mankind, issuing from the life of the people.”

-- C. Wilfred Jenks, who in the 1930's was a leading proponent of the "international law" movement



“By a continuing process of inflation, governments can confiscate, secretly and unobserved, an important part of the wealth of their citizens.  There is no subtler, no surer means of overturning the existing basis of society than to debauch the currency.  The process engages all the hidden forces of economic law on the side of destruction, and does it in a manner which not one man in a million is able to diagnose.”

--John Maynard Keynes



“In circumstances dark as these, it becomes us, as Men and Christians, to reflect that, whilst every prudent Measure should be taken to ward off the impending Judgments.   All confidence must be withheld from the Means we use; and reposed only on that GOD who rules in the Armies of Heaven, and without whose Blessing the best human Counsels are but Foolishness -- and all created Power, Vanity.”

--John Hancock (1775)



“The Constitution shall never be construed to prevent the people of the U.S. from keeping their own arms.”

“I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies.  If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.” 

-- Thomas Jefferson - 1802



When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty.

“The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.”

--Thomas Jefferson



“To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes the propagation of ideas which he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.”

--Thomas Jefferson



“A strong body makes the mind strong.  As to the species of the exercise, I advise the gun.  While this gives a moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprize [sic] and independance [sic] to the mind.  Games played with the ball and others of that nature, are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind.  Let your gun therefore be the constant companion on your walk.  Never think of taking a book with you.”

– Thomas Jefferson in a 1785 letter to his fifteen-year-old nephew



“My God!  How little do my countrymen know what precious blessings they are in possession of, and which no other people on earth enjoy!”

- Thomas Jefferson



“Justice is the end of government.  It is the end of civil society.  It ever has been and ever will be pursued until it be obtained, or until liberty be lost in the pursuit.”

–James Madison, Federalist No. 51, 1788

--James Madison

–James Madison



“Arms discourage and keep the invader and plunderer in awe, and preserve Order in the world as well as property . . . Horrid mischief would ensue were the law-abiding deprived of the use of them.”

- Thomas Paine, Thoughts on Defensive War (1775)



“Unhappy it is, though, to reflect that a brother's sword has been sheathed in a brother's breast and that the once-happy and peaceful plains of America are either to be drenched with blood, or inhabited by a race of slaves.  Sad alternative!  But can a virtuous man hesitate in his choice?”

-- George Washington, letter written May 31, 1775



“Guard against the impostures of pretended patriotism.”

--George Washington (1796)



“A free people ought not only be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government.”

-- George Washington



“A Nation which can prefer disgrace to danger is prepared for a Master and deserves one.”

-- Alexander Hamilton



“The safety of a republic depends essentially on the energy of a common national sentiment; on a uniformity of principles and habits; on the exemption of the citizens from foreign bias and prejudice; and on that love of country which will almost invariably be found to be closely connected with birth, education, and family.  The opinion advanced in the Notes on Virginia is undoubtedly correct, that foreigners will generally be apt to bring with them attachments to the persons they have left behind; to the country of their nativity; and to its particular customs and manners.  They will also entertain opinions on government congenial with those under which they have lived; or if they should be led hither from a preference to ours, how extremely unlikely is it that they will bring with them that temperate love of liberty, so essential to real republicanism?”

–Alexander Hamilton, From the New York Evening Post: an Examination of the President's Message, Continued, No. VIII, 1802



“You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich. You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong. You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift. You cannot lift the wage earner by pulling the wage payer down. You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred. You cannot build character and courage by taking away people’s initiative and independence. You cannot help people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves.”

— Abraham Lincoln



“A nation that does not honor its heroes will not long endure.”

— Abraham Lincoln



“I would rather be ashes than dust!  I would rather that my spark should burn out in a brilliant blaze than it should be stifled by dry-rot.  I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet.  The function of man is to live, not to exist.  I shall not waste my days trying to prolong them. I shall use my time.”

-- Jack London, author



 “There is an ecstasy that marks the summit of life, and beyond which life cannot rise.  And such is the paradox of living, this ecstasy comes when one is most alive, and it comes as a complete forgetfulness that one is alive.”

-- Jack London, author



“Father Time is not always a hard parent, and, though he tarries for none of his children, often lays his hand lightly upon those who have used him well; making them old men and women inexorably enough, but leaving their hearts and spirits young and in full vigour.  With such people the grey head is but the impression of the old fellow's hand in giving them his blessing, and every wrinkle but a notch in the quiet calendar of a well-spent life.”

-- Charles Dickens, author



 “People never lie so much as after a hunt, during a war, or before an election.”

-- Otto Von Bismarck



“Fight to your last cartridge, then fight with your bayonets.  No surrender.  Fight to the death.”

As I approach the gates of heaven;

St. Peter I will tell;

One more soldier reporting sir;

I've served my time in hell.

— Nikita Khrushchev



“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.  We didn’t pass it on to our children in the bloodstream.  It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children what it was once like in the United States when men were free.”

-- Ronald Reagan



“Life’s tough … it’s even tougher if you’re stupid.”

“In Third World countries, people think evil spirits live in rocks and trees.  We make fun of those people.  In this country, certain people think evil spirits live in guns or magazines.  We call them anti-gun activists.  A more rational thinker sees very little difference in these two views.”

– Tom Givens, author & former LEO



“Participating in a gun buy-back because you believe that the criminals have too many guns is like having yourself castrated because you believe that the neighbors have too many kids.”

“Members of this Court are vested with the authority to interpret the law; we possess neither the expertise nor the prerogative to make policy judgments.  Those decisions are entrusted to our nation´s elected leaders, who can be thrown out of office if the people disagree with them.  It is not our job to protect the people from the consequences of their political choices.”

 “The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure.  It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills.  It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies.  Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally.  Leadership means that, “the buck stops here.”  Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren.  America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership.  Americans deserve better.”

-- Senator Barack H. Obama, March 2006
