From Chris today, this is such a great messege today......thank you so much to Jonathan Lockwood Huie
From the website of Jonathan Lockwood Huie:
How far you can go without destroying from within
what you are trying to defend from without?
- Dwight D. Eisenhower
The end does NOT justify the means.
Freedom cannot be gained by sacrificing the freedom of others.
Free speech cannot be gained by limiting the free speech of others.
Human rights cannot be secured by trampling the human rights of others.
Viciousness in others cannot be fought by becoming vicious oneself.
Neither individual nor nation can long survive by meeting hatred with hatred,
injustice with injustice, prejudice with prejudice.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
Give to every human being every right that you claim for yourself.
- Robert Green Ingersoll
Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.
- Emma Lazarus - written on the Statue of Liberty in New York harbor
They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety,
deserve neither liberty nor safety.
- Benjamin Franklin
We hold these truths to be self-evident:
that all men are created equal,
that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights,
among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
- Thomas Jefferson [Declaration of Independence, and inscribed in the Jefferson Memorial]
The best way to enhance freedom in other lands
is to demonstrate here that our democratic system is worthy of emulation.
- Jimmy Carter
The only thing necessary for evil to triumph
is for enough good men to do nothing.
- Edmund Burke
