I like that one iori!!

To succeed in politics, it is often necessary to rise above your principles.


It is impossible to make anything foolproof because fools are so ingenious.


Trust everybody ... then cut the cards.

Money can't buy love, but it sure gets you a great bargaining position.

Murphy's Military Laws.
Never share a foxhole with anyone braver than you are.

Friendly fire ain't.

Tell a man there are 300 billion stars in the universe and he'll believe you. Tell him a bench has wet paint on it and he'll have to touch to be sure.

"A liberal is a man too broadminded to take his own side in a quarrel."
Robert Frost

God thought to hide his secrets in a secure place. "How about on the moon?" he reflected. "But then, one day human beings could get there, and it may be that those who arrive there would not be worth of such knowledge. Maybe in the ocean or deep underground?" But that again was dismissed for the same reason. Then the solution occurred to him - "I shall put my secrets in the inner sanctum of their own minds. Then only those who really deserve it and seek it will be able to find it."

"The Aim of an Argument should not be victory, but progress."
-Joseph Joubert

"Too many people are only willing to defend rights that are personally
important to them. It's selfish ignorance, and it's exactly why totalitarian governments are able to get away with trampling on people. Freedom
does not mean freedom just for the things I think I should be able to do.
Freedom is for all of us. If people will not speak up for other people's
rights, there will come a day when they will lose their own.
"
-Tony Lawrence

"He that would make his own liberty secure, must guard even his enemy from oppression; for if he violates this duty, he establishes a precedent which will reach to himself."
-Thomas Paine

Liberty means responsibility. That is why most men dread it.
-George Bernard Shaw

I believe there are more instances of the abridgment of freedom
of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in
power than by violent and sudden usurpations.

-James Madison

In order for an act to be a crime, libertarians say, someone
must be harmed -- there must be a victim.
Anything that's peaceful, voluntary, and honest should be tolerated
regardless of whether we agree with it. Part of the price of our own
freedom is allowing others to be free.

-Scott Banister
