    Socialists cry “Power to the people”, and raise the clenched fist as they say it. We all know what they really mean—power over people, power to the State.

    If you want something said, ask a man. If you want something done, ask a woman.

    My favourite is probably
    "I am the master of my fate:
    I am the captain of my soul."- William Henley

    I also like "Do not go gentle into that good night, rage, rage, against the dying of the light"- Dylan Thomas

    and "It is better to light one small candle than to curse the darkness"- Eleanor Roosevelt.

    Basically because all of them are about not giving up, being strong and trying no matter what. That's something that appeals to me
