Quotes for March 4, 2008

Henry Brook Adams

  • I would rather starve and rot and keep the privilege of speaking the truth as I see it, than of holding all the offices that capital has to give from the presidency down.
  • Politics, as a practise, whatever its professions, has always been the systematic organization of hatreds.

John Adams

  • Be not intimidated… nor suffer yourselves to be wheedled out of your liberties by any pretense of politeness, delicacy, or decency. These, as they are often used, are but three different names for hypocrisy, chicanery and cowardice.

Samuel Adams

  • Among the natural rights of the colonists are these: first, a right to life; secondly, to liberty; thirdly to property; together with the right to support and defend them in the best manner they can.
  • It does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen to set brush fires in people’s minds.
