Quotes for February 29, 2008

Justice William O. Douglas

  • As nightfall does not come all at once, neither does oppression. In both instances, there is a twilight when everything remains seemingly unchanged. And it is in such twilight that we all must be most aware of change in the air – however slight – lest we become unwitting victims of the darkness.


Frederick Douglass

  • Find out just what the people will submit to and you have found out the exact amount of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them; and these will continue until they are resisted with either words or blows, or with both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress.


Thomas R. Eddlem

  • It is, of course, true that if we continue to lose our freedoms, concentration camps on U.S. soil would eventually become a reality.


Bob Edwards

  • Now I know what a statesman is; he’s a dead politician. We need more statesmen.
