Fondly do we hope, fervently do we pray, that this mighty scourge of war may speedily pass away. Yet, if God wills that it continue until all the wealth piled by the bondsman's two hundred and fifty years of unrequited toil shall be sunk, and until every drop of blood drawn with the lash shall be paid by another drawn with the sword, as was said three thousand years ago, so still it must be said 'the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether. --Abraham Lincoln

People sleep peaceably in their bed at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf. --George Orwell

If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear. --George Orwell
