Patience is a virtue, better left to dead...who can afford it.
--Robert Heinlien

Make yourself sheep and the wolves will eat you.
--Benjamin Franklin

You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift. You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong. You cannot help the wage earner by pulling down the wage payer. You cannot further the brotherhood of man encouraging class hatred. You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich. You cannot keep out of trouble by spending more than you earn. You cannot build character and courage by taking away man’s initiative and independence. You cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they could and should do for themselves.
--Abraham Lincoln

Liberty not only means that the individual has both the opportunity and the burden of choice; it also means that he must bear the consequences of his actions. Liberty and responsibility are inseparable.
--Friedrich von Hayek, The Constitution of Liberty 1960
