“Corruptissima re publica plurimae leges.”
The more corrupt the state is, the more numerous are the laws.
— Tacitus , Annals

“The West won’t contain Communism. It will transcend Communism. It will dismiss it as some bizarre chapter in human history whose last pages are even now being written.”—Ronald Reagan(Univ. of Notre Dame—1981)

“So much of left-wing thought is a kind of playing with fire by people who don’t even know fire is hot.”—George Orwell

“Certainly one of the chief guarantees of freedom under any government, no matter how popular and respected, is the right of the citizen to keep and bear arms. This is not to say that firearms should not be very carefully used and that definite rules of precaution should not be taught and enforced. But the right of the citizen to bear arms is just one more safeguard against a tyranny which now appears remote in America, but which historically has proved to be always possible.”
-Hubert Humphrey, 1960

“Governing a great nation is like cooking a small fish - too much handling will spoil it.”—Lao Tsu

“It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out
how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds
could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is
actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat
and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short
again and again, because there is no effort without error or
shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great
devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the
best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and
who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring
greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and
timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat.”—Theodore Roosevelt

"If one only wished to be happy, this could be easily accomplished; but we wish to be happier than other people, and this is always difficult, for we believe others to be happier than they are.”— Montesquieu

“Each new generation born is in effect an invasion of civilization by little barbarians, who must be civilized before it is too late.” - Thomas Sowell
