Got Liberty Quote?
« on: November 22, 2008, 09:25 AM NHFT »

I'll admit I'm obsessed with Liberty quotes and can't get enough of them, so if you'd like to share one, that'd be great.
So let me get this party started!



"Government is Essentially the Negation of Liberty."

Ludvig Von Misses



"The ground of Liberty is to be gained in inches."

Thomas Jefferson
Jan. 27, 1790



"As for me, I think anyone, whoever he may be, who has done NOTHING for liberty, or has not done all he could, deserves to
counted as an ENEMY of it."

Joseph-Pierre Fayau
Nov. 26, 1793

The direct use of force is such a poor solution to any problem, it is generally employed only by small children and large nations.

The contest, for ages, has been to rescue Liberty from the grasp of executive power.

Ninety eight percent of the adults in this country are decent, hardworking, honest Americans. It's the other lousy two percent that get all the publicity. But then, we elected them.

Great thread!  This one could go on for years.  These are good for you future candidates to memorize and incorporate into your speeches.

Here are some good ones:

"If you don't read the newspaper you are uninformed, if you do read the newspaper you are misinformed." - Mark Twain

Suppose you were an idiot.
And suppose you were a member of Congress....
But then I repeat myself. -Mark Twain

The only difference between a tax man and a taxidermist is that the taxidermist leaves the skin.
-Mark Twain

There is no distinctly Native American criminal class...save Congress.
-Mark Twain

Heard on FTL

An unarmed man is a slave.
An armed man is a free man.

Liberty means responsibility.  That is why most men dread it.

George Bernard Shaw
1902


++++++

Liberty has never come from the government.  Liberty has always come from the "subjects" of it.  The history of liberty is a history of resistance.  The history of liberty is a history of limitations of governmental power, not the increase in it.


Woodrow Wilson
NY Press Club
Sept. 9, 1912

Crime is contagious. If the government becomes a lawbreaker, it breeds
contempt for law.

If you have the same ideas as everybody else but have them one week earlier
than everyone else then you will be hailed as a visionary. But if you have
them five years earlier you will be named a lunatic. -Barry Jones,
politician, author (1932- )

A mass of Latin words falls upon the facts like soft snow, blurring the
outline and covering up all the details. The great enemy of clear language
is insincerity. When there is a gap between one's real and one's declared
aims, one turns as it were instinctively to long words and exhausted
idioms, like a cuttlefish spurting out ink. In our age there is no such
thing as "keeping out of politics". All issues are political issues, and
politics itself is a mass of lies, evasions, folly, hatred, and
schizophrenia. When the general atmosphere is bad, language must suffer.
-George Orwell, writer (1903-1950)
