It does not take a majority to prevail... but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men.
Samuel Adams

I only got drunk once but it was for 30 years
Joe Walsh

If I am not for myself, then who will be for me?
And if I am only for myself, then what am I?
And if not now, when?

Rabbi Hillel

We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.
Winston Churchill

Suppose you were an idiot and suppose you were a member of Congress. But I repeat myself.
Mark Twain

Somewhere in that pad of stuffing is a toy who taught me that life's only worth living if you're being loved by a kid.
Buzz Lightyear

Small chance of success. Certainty of death. What are we waiting for?
Gimli in The Lord of the Rings said when they decided to challenge Sauron at the Black Gate

A person is smart. People are dumb.
Everything they known has been proven to be wrong.
A thousand years ago everybody knew as a fact, that the earth was the center of the universe.
Five hundred years ago, everybody knew that the Earth was flat, and fifteen minutes ago, you knew that humans were alone on it.
Imagine what you'll know tomorrow.
Agent K, MIB

It costs God nothing, so far as we know, to create nice things: but to convert rebellious wills cost him crucifixion... You must make your choice.
Either this man was, and is, the Son of God, or else a madman or something worse...
You can shut him up for fool, you can spit at him and kill him as a demon; or you can fall at his feet and call him Lord and God.

C.S. Lewis

Don't be afraid of the Cross. The fear of death is the beginning of slavery

Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you, Jesus Christ and the American G.I.
One died for your soul - the other died for your freedom.

Ay, fight and you may die, run and you'll live. At least a while. And dying in your beds many years from now, would you be willing to trade all the days from this day to that for one chance, just one chance to come back here and tell our enemies that they may take our lives, but they'll never take our FREEDOM!
from the movie Braveheart

Being powerful is like being a lady. If you have to tell people you are, you aren't.
Margaret Thatcher

We intend to keep the peace; we will also keep our freedom
Ronald Reagan
State of the Union address, Jan. 26, 1982

Republicans believe every day is 4th of July, but Democrats believe every day is April 15.
Ronald Reagan

Abortion is advocated only by persons who have themselves been born.
Ronald Reagan

I used to say that politics is the second oldest profession, and I have come to know that it bears a gross similarity to the first.
Ronald Reagan

Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote.
Ben Franklin

You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong
You cannot help small men by tearing down big men
You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich
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 further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatreds
You cannot build character and courage by taking away a man's initiative and independence
You cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they could and should do for themselves
Abraham Lincoln

If everyone is thinking alike, someone isn't thinking.
Gen. George Patton

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small doesn't serve the world.
There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.
We are born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It's not just in some of us, it's in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

Marianne Williamson
