"Great Quotes" from great people...

____________________________________________________________________
“A government that is big enough to give you all you want is big enough to take it all away.” — Barry Goldwater
____________________________________________________________________
“Now more than ever before, the people are responsible for the character of their Congress. If that body be ignorant, reckless and corrupt, it is because the people tolerate ignorance, recklessness and corruption. If it be intelligent, brave and pure, it is because the people demand these high qualities to represent them in the national legislature … If the next centennial does not find us a great nation…it will be because those who represent the enterprise, the culture, and the morality of the nation do not aid in controlling the political forces.” — James Garfield in 1877
____________________________________________________________________
“The government of the Western nations, whether monarchical or republican, had passed into the invisible hands of a plutocracy, international in power and grasp. It was, I venture to suggest, this semi-occult power which….pushed the mass of the American people into the cauldron of World War I.” — British military historian Major General J.F.C. Fuller, l941
____________________________________________________________________
“Find out just what the people will submit to and you will 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 both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress.” — Frederick Douglas
____________________________________________________________________
“I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. And because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do the something that I can do. What I can do, I should do. And what I should do, by the grace of God, I will do.” — Edward Everett Hale
____________________________________________________________________
“...Virtue, morality, and religion. This is the armor, my friend, and this alone that renders us invincible. These are the tactics we should study. If we lose these, we are conquered, fallen indeed…so long as our manners and principles remain sound, there is no danger.” — Patrick Henry
____________________________________________________________________
“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.” — Hosea 4:6
____________________________________________________________________
“The real menace of our republic is this invisible government which like a giant octopus sprawls its slimy length over city, state and nation. Like the octopus of real life, it operates under cover of a self created screen….At the head of this octopus are the Rockefeller Standard Oil interests and a small group of powerful banking houses generally referred to as international bankers. The little coterie of powerful international bankers virtually runs the United States government for their own selfish purposes. They practically control both political parties.” — New York City Mayor John F. Hylan, 1922
____________________________________________________________________
“Resistance to tyrants is obedience to God.” — Thomas Jefferson

“Every violation of truth is not only a sort of suicide in the liar, but is a stab at the health of human society.” — Ralph Waldo Emerson
____________________________________________________________________
“Never think that war, no matter how necessary, nor how justified, is not a crime.” — Ernest Hemingway
____________________________________________________________________
“If we let people see that kind of thing, there would never again be any war.” — Pentagon official explaining why the U.S. military censored graphic footage from the Gulf War
____________________________________________________________________
“Liberty can not be preserved without a general knowledge among the people.” — John Adams
____________________________________________________________________
“Liberty means responsibility. That is why most men dread it.” — George Bernard Shaw
____________________________________________________________________
“I believe in only one thing: liberty; but I do not believe in liberty enough to want to force it upon anyone.” — H. L. Mencken
____________________________________________________________________
“It behoves every man who values liberty of conscience for himself, to resist invasions of it in the case of others: or their case may, by change of circumstances, become his own.” — Thomas Jefferson
____________________________________________________________________
“Power always thinks it has a great soul and vast views beyond the comprehension of the weak; and that it is doing God’s service when it is violating all his laws.” — John Adams
____________________________________________________________________
“ ... No “terrorist” gene is known to exist or is likely to be found… Surely the(y), and their supporters were afflicted by something that caused their metamorphosis from normal human beings capable of gentleness and affection into desperate, maddened, fiends with nothing but murder in their hearts and minds. What was that? Simple logic says that we must go to the roots of terror. Only a fool can believe that the services of a suicidal terrorist can be purchased, or that they can be bred at will anywhere.” – Ouch Borith: Permanent Representative Of The Kingdom Of Cambodia To The UN, 10/03/2001
____________________________________________________________________
“The individual may stand upon his constitutional rights as a citizen. He is entitled to carry on his private business in his own way. His power to contract is unlimited. He owes no such duty [to submit his books and papers for an examination] to the State, since he receives nothing therefrom, beyond the protection of his life and property. His rights are such as existed by the law of the land [Common Law] long antecedent to the organization of the State, and can only be taken from him by due process of law, and in accordance with the Constitution. Among his rights are a refusal to incriminate himself, and the immunity of himself and his property from arrest or seizure except under a warrant of the law. He owes nothing to the public so long as he does not trespass upon their rights.” — U.S. Supreme Court, Hale v. Henkel, 201 U.S. 43 at 47 (1905).
____________________________________________________________________
“When I tell the truth, it is not for the sake of convincing those who do not know it, but for the sake of defending those that do.” — William Blake
____________________________________________________________________
“To preserve their [the people’s] independence, we must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt. We must make our selection between economy and liberty, or profusion and servitude.” — Thomas Jefferson
____________________________________________________________________
“It is a common experience that a problem difficult at night is resolved in the morning after the committee of sleep has worked on it.” — John Steinbeck
____________________________________________________________________
“If you keep on excusing, you eventually give your blessing to the slave camp, to cowardly force, to organized executioners, to the cynicism of great political monsters; you finally hand over your brothers.” — Albert Camus
____________________________________________________________________
“The ultimate error is the refusal to look evil in the face.” — Rollo May
____________________________________________________________________
“Nothing is easier than self-deceit. For what each man wishes, that he also believes to be true.” — Demosthenes
____________________________________________________________________
“In a country well governed poverty is something to be ashamed of. In a country badly governed wealth is something to be ashamed of.” — Confucius
____________________________________________________________________
“The country is headed toward a single and splendid government of an aristocracy founded on banking institutions and monied corporations, and if this tendency continues it will be the end of freedom and democracy, the few will be ruling and riding over the plundered plowman and the beggar…” — Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826)

Enlightenment is a hard thing to describe. Its actually probably better to be Silent & not try to describe it at all.

I miss the dinosaurs. Anybody who thinks that God doesn't exist; just look at the fucking dinosaurs. You really think shit like that just happens by pure accident?  Are you fucking kidding me? Go back to sleep. - Deep Space

Comment by Deep Space on June 21, 2017 at 3:54pm

Nature is bigger than us humans. Nature was here before us. And Nature will continue to be here after we're gone. Key point being, the human species has an expiration date. Nature does not. - Deep Space

Comment by Deep Space on May 11, 2017 at 11:49pm

The genius of a composer is found in the notes of his music; but analyzing the notes will not reveal his genius. The poet's greatness is contained in his words; yet the study of his words will not disclose his inspiration. God reveals himself in creation; but scrutinize creation as minutely as you wish, you will not find God, any more than you will find the soul through careful examination of your body. - Anthony de Mello

Comment by Deep Space on April 11, 2017 at 1:53am

Prophets don't see into the Future. They see into the Present.
To the masses, encapsulated in the Past,
it may appear that the Prophets are peering into the Future
by sheer relativism. - Deep Space (4/11/17)
