Quote of the Day

Let me be a free man, free to travel, free to stop,
free to work, free to trade where I choose,
free to choose my own teachers,
free to follow the religion of my fathers,
free to talk, think and act for myself —
and I will obey every law or submit to the penalty.

— Chief Joseph

QUote of the Day

There’s no way to rule innocent men.
The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals.
Well, when there aren’t enough criminals, one makes them.
One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws.
Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens? What’s there in that for anyone?
But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced nor objectively interpreted
and you create a nation of law-breakers — and then you cash in on guilt.
Now that’s the system.

— Ayn Rand

Quote of the Day

An anarchist is anyone
who doesn’t need a cop
to tell him what to do.

— Ammon Hennacy

Quote of the Day

It is better and more satisfactory to acquit a thousand
guilty persons than to put a single innocent one to death.

— Maimonides

Quote of the Day

What is the point of worrying oneself too much about what one could or could not have done to control the course one’s life took? Surely it is enough that the likes of you and I at least try to make our small contribution count for something true and worthy. And if some of us are prepared to sacrifice much in life in order to pursue such aspirations, surely that is in itself, whatever the outcome, cause for pride and contentment.

― Kazuo Ishiguro (The Remains of the Day)

Quote of the Day

For every evil under the sun,
There is a remedy, or there is none.
If there be one, seek till you find it;
If there be none, never mind it.

— Mother Goose

La habilidad triunfa por el momento, pero la sabiduría es eterna.

— Peter F. Drucker

Cita del Día

Lo más atroz de las cosas malas de la gente mala es el silencio de la gente buena.

— Mahatma Gandhi

Cita del Día

La muerte, ¿mejora a la gente? los vivos merecemos desconfianza, somos peligrosos, asombrosos, inapresables, pero a los muertos se puede inventarlos a medida, sin riesgo de cambio ni contradicción; los muertos no se mueven: es el amor a la muerte, amor al orden inmóvil, el que se disfraza de amor a los muertos.

— Eduardo Galeano

Cita del Día

La situación de las mujeres se ve determinada por extrañas condiciones: sometidas y protegidas a la vez, débiles y poderosas, son demasiado despreciadas y demasiado respectadas.

— Marguerite Yourcenar
