#9651It is better to die on your feet than to live on your knees.
#9652It is better to wear chains than to believe you are free, and weight
yourself down with invisible chains.
#9653It is difficult to legislate morality in the absence of moral legislators.
#9654It is easier to be a "humanitarian" than to render your own country its
proper due; it is easier to be a "patriot" than to make your community a
better place to live in; it is easier to be a "civic leader" than to treat
your own family with loving understanding; for the smaller the focus of
attention, the harder the task.
-- Sydney J. Harris
#9655It is easier to fight for one's principles than to live up to them.
-- Alfred Adler
#9656It is enough to make one sympathize with a tyrant for the determination
of his courtiers to deceive him for their own personal ends...
-- Russell Baker and Charles Peters
#9657It is impossible to defend perfectly against the attack of those who want
to die.
#9658It is like saying that for the cause of peace, God and the Devil will
have a high-level meeting.
-- Rev. Carl McIntire, on Nixon's China trip
#9659It is necessary for the welfare of society that genius should be privileged
to utter sedition, to blaspheme, to outrage good taste, to corrupt the
youthful mind, and generally to scandalize one's uncles.
-- George Bernard Shaw
#9660It is not the critic who counts, or how the strong man stumbled, or whether
the doer of deeds could have done them 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 short again and again; who
knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, and who spends himself in a
worthy cause, and if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that
he'll never be with those cold and timid souls who never know either victory
or defeat.
-- Teddy Roosevelt
