    What are your favourite quotes?

    I like:

    “How do you tell a Communist? Well, it’s someone who reads Marx and Lenin. And how do you tell an anti-Communist? It’s someone who understands Marx and Lenin.” - Reagan

    'Everything in excess! To enjoy the flavor of life, take big bites. Moderation is for monks'. -Heilein

    "The meek shall inherit the Earth. The rest of us will go to the stars." - Free Capitalist

    'A bureaucrat is the most despicable of men, though he is needed as vultures are needed, but one hardly admires vultures whom bureaucrats so strangely resemble. I have yet to meet a bureaucrat who was not petty, dull, almost witless, crafty or stupid, an oppressor or a thief, a holder of little authority in which he delights, as a boy delights in possessing a vicious dog. Who can trust such creatures?'
    -Marcus Tullius Cicero

    "All great things are simple, and many can be expressed in single words: freedom, justice, honor, duty, mercy, hope."


    "Never, never, never believe any war will be smooth and easy, or that anyone who embarks on the strange voyage can measure the tides and hurricanes he will encounter. The statesman who yields to war fever must realize that once the signal is given, he is no longer the master of policy but the slave of unforeseeable and uncontrollable events."

    "We shall not fail or falter; we shall not weaken or tire...Give us the tools and we will finish the job. "

    There is no victory in war, only varying degrees of defeat.
    - can't remember who said this and can't be bothered to google it - don't think it's very important. just a very cool quote - hope you get time to think about it.

    Not sure if I like that quote. There are victories in war, maybe not from the point of view of the country as a whole, but on individual merits there are.

Walk on through the wind, walk on through the rain, tho' your dreams be tossed and blown. Walk on, walk on with hope in your heart and you'll never walk alone, you'll never, ever walk alone."
