"No belief is neutral. Every one has the power to dictate each decision you make. For a decision is a conclusion based on everything that you believe."
"Argue for your limitations, and sure enough they're yours." - Richard Bach
America's vital interests and our deepest beliefs are now one. From the day of our Founding, we have proclaimed that every man and woman on this earth has rights, and dignity, and matchless value, because they bear the image of the Maker of Heaven and Earth. Across the generations we have proclaimed the imperative of self-government, because no one is fit to be a master, and no one deserves to be a slave. Advancing these ideals is the mission that created our Nation. It is the honorable achievment of our fathers. Now it is the urgent requirement or our nation's security, and the calling of our time. - George W. Bush
From all of you, I have asked patience in the hard task of securing America, which you have granted in good measure. Our country has accepted obligations that are difficult to fulfill, and would be dishonorable to abandon. Yet because we have acted in the great liberating tradition of this nation, tens of millions have achieved their freedom. And as hope kindles hope, millions more will find it. By our efforts, we have lit a fire as well - a fire in the minds of men. It warms those who feel its power, it burns those who fight its progress, and one day this untamed fire of freedom will reach the darkest corners of our world. - George W. Bush
Liberation brings peace of mind
Bondage is a fire that scorches the mind,
Even after realizing this,
People do not strive for liberation.
How foolish they are! - Vasishtha
If there must be trouble let it be in my day, that my child may have peace. --Thomas Paine
These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. --Thomas Paine (1737-1809)
"A point has no magnitude. It merely indicates position .
Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered. Yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict the more glorious the triumph. --Thomas Paine, The Crisis
