Some favorite quotes from various sources:
"I began to sense faintly that secrecy is the keystone of all tyranny. Not force, but secrecy... censorship. When any government, or any church for that matter, undertakes to say to its subjects, "This you may not read, this you must not see, this you are forbidden to know," the end result is tyranny and oppression, no matter how holy the motives. Mighty little force is needed to control a man whose mind has been hoodwinked; contrariwise, no amount of force can control a free man, a man whose mind is free. No, not the rack, not fission bombs, not anything -- you can't conquer a free man; the most you can do is kill him." -- Robert A. Heinlein, "If This Goes On", ch.6
"Liberal democracy teaches that cultural tolerance is essential, but you don't have to get far from liberal democracy for liberal democrats to become very intolerant." --Kim Stanley Robinson
“He was opposed to the use of force. Force, he believed, was the last resort of incompetence; he had said so frequently enough since this operation had begun. Of course, he was absolutely right, though not in the way he meant. Only the incompetent wait until the last extremity to use force, and by then, it is usually too late to use anything, even prayer." --H.Beam Piper, "A Slave Is A Slave", Empire
“We put poisons in our water and air to weed out the weak! We detonate fission bombs in our only biosphere! We nailed our God to a stick! Don't fk with the human race!" --attributed to General Nikolai Nikolai at a galactic summit (Internet Sigfile)
"Tis only a scratch, and I shall have to apologise to you bye and bye for quitting the deck on so trivial an occasion." --Capt. James Wemyss, HMS Bellerophon, Trafalgar, October 21, 1805. After being hit by eight musket balls and loosing his right arm.
"It's a strange sensation, dying. No matter how many times it happens to you, you never get used to it." --Ezri Dax; Star Trek DS9, Afterimage
“A good friend will drive 30 miles at 3:30 in the morning to bail you out of jail,
A good friend will help you move furniture,
A good friend will back up the BS story you tell your wife,
"The problem with America is stupidity. I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself?" -- Internet Sigfile
"Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intentions of arriving in a well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, margarita in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming...WOO HOO, WHAT A RIDE!!" --Internet Sigfile
“I believe in Karma, that means I can do bad things to people all day long and I assume that they deserve it.” --Dogbert, in the comic strip Dilbert
"Everyone is in favor of free speech. Hardly a day passes without its being extolled, but some people's idea of it is that they are free to say what they like, but if anyone says anything back, that is an outrage." -- Winston Churchill
“ America isn't easy. America is advanced citizenship. You've gotta want it bad, cause it's gonna put up a fight. It's gonna say, "You want free speech? Let's see you acknowledge a man whose words make your blood boil, who's standing center stage and advocating at the top of his lungs that which you would spend a lifetime opposing at the top of yours." You want to claim this land as the land of the free? Then the symbol of your country cannot just be a flag. The symbol also has to be one of its citizens exercising his right to burn that flag in protest. Now show me that, defend that, celebrate that in your classrooms. Then you can stand up and sing about the land of the free.” --Internet Sigfile
"A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects". --From the Notebooks of Lazarus Long, by Robert A. Heinlein
“I am offended; Therefore by the Politically Correct Rules of Engagement anything you say is hereby rendered moot and your freedom of speech is revoked.” --Diane, in the comic strip Non-Sequitur
"I submit to you that if a man hasn't discovered something he will die for, he isn't fit to live." --Martin Luther King Jr., Speech in DetroitJune 23, 1963
