Quotes for March 10, 2008

Dwight D. Eisenhower

  • They [the founders] proclaimed to all the world the revolutionary doctrine of the divine rights of the common man. That doctrine has ever since been the heart of the American faith.
  • Here in America we are descended in blood and in spirit from revolutionists and rebels — men and women who dare to dissent from accepted doctrine. As their heirs, we may never confuse honest dissent with disloyal subversion.
  • I think that people want peace so much that one of these days government had better get out of their way and let them have it.
  • Don’t join the book burners. Don’t think you are going to conceal faults by concealing evidence that they ever existed.
  • It is an ancient truth that freedom cannot be legislated into existence, so it is no less obvious that freedom cannot be censored into existence. And any who act as if freedom’s defenses are found in suppression and suspicion and fear confess a doctrine that is alien to America.
  • Any time we deny any citizen the full exercise of his constitutional rights, we are weakening our own claim to them.
