Quotes for January 13, 2008

General Douglas MacArthur:

  • The object and practice of liberty lies in the limitation of government power.

James Madison:

  • Since the general civilization of mankind, I believe there are more instances of the abridgment of freedoms of the people by gradual and silent encroachment of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpations.
  • Perhaps it is a universal truth that the loss of liberty at home is to be charged to the provisions against danger, real or pretended, from abroad.

Everett Dean Martin:

  • Tolerance is a better guarantee of freedom than brotherly love; for a man may love his brother so much that he feels himself thereby appointed his brother’s keeper.

George Mason:

  • To disarm the people is the best and most effectual way to enslave them.

Ronald Reagan:

  • Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.
