FORMER QUOTES OF THE MOMENT:
"Compromise, hell! That's what has happened to us all down the lineand that's the very cause of our woes. If freedom is right and tyranny is wrong, why should those who believe in freedom treat it as if it were a roll of bologna to be bartered a slice at a time?" ~ Jesse Helms writing in 1959 on compromise in politics.
Watch your thoughts; they become words.
Watch your words; they become actions.
Watch your actions; they become habits.
Watch your habits; they become character.
Watch your character, it becomes your destiny.
Parents shall not be put to death for their children, nor shall children be put to death for their parents; only for their own crimes may persons be put to death. ~ Deuteronomy 24:16
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails.
(1 Corinthians 13: 4-8a NIV)
A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.
The tongue of the wise commends knowledge, but the mouth of the fool gushes folly.
The eyes of the Lord are everywhere, keeping watch on the wicked and the good.
The tongue that brings healing is a tree of life, but a deceitful tongue crushes the spirit.
~ Proverbs 15:1-4
"A government that robs Peter to pay Paul can always depend upon the support of Paul."
~ George Bernard Shaw
"To err is human but to really foul things up requires a computer."
~ Farmers' Almanac for 1978 'Capsules of Wisdom'
"Rien n'est plus dangereux qu'une idée, quand on n'a qu'une idée."
"Nothing is more dangerous than an idea, when you have only one idea."
~ Alain (Èmile-Auguste Chartier), Propos sur la religion (1938) no. 74
"You know how it feels when you're leaning back on a chair, and you lean too far back, and you almost fall over backwards, but then you catch yourself at the last second? I feel like that all the time..."
~ Stephen Wright
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive from treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and he carries his banners openly. But the traitor moves among those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears no traitor; he speaks in the accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their garments, and he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation; he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of a city; he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to be feared"
- Cicero (106-43 B.C.), Roman Statesman
"Politics is supposed to be the second oldest profession. I have come to realize that it bears a very close resemblance to the first."
- Ronald Reagan (1977)
"To alcohol! The cause of -- and solution to -- all of life's problems!"
- Homer J. Simpson
" It is better to die on your feet than to live on your knees"
- Emiliano Zapata
"Rock journalism is people who can't write interviewing people who can't talk for people who can't read"
- Frank Zappa
"Some people live an entire life time and wonder if they have ever made a difference in the world, but the Marines don't have that problem."
- Ronald Reagan, President of the United States of America
"Terrorist attacks can shake the foundations of our biggest buildings, but they cannot touch the foundation of America. These acts can shatter steel, but they cannot dent the steel of American resolve."
-- President George W. Bush (11 September 2001)
"God bless America, Land that I love.
Stand beside her, and guide her,
Thru the night with a light from above.
From the mountains, to the prairies,
To the oceans, white with foam-
God bless America! My home sweet home.
God bless America! My home sweet home.
-- sung by a united Congress following a press conference. (11 September 2001)
