Quote of the Day

To bear up under loss — to fight the bitterness of defeat
and the weakness of grief — to be victor over anger — to smile when
tears are close — to resist evil men and base instincts — to hate
hate and to love love — to go on when it would seem good to die — to
seek ever after the glory and the dream — to look up with unquenchable
faith in something evermore about to be — that is what any man can do,
and so be great.

— Zane Grey

Quote of the Day

Last, but by no means least, courage — moral courage, the courage of one’s convictions, the courage to see things through. The world is in a constant conspiracy against the brave. It’s the age-old struggle — the roar of the crowd on one side and the voice of your conscience on the other.

— General Douglas MacArthur

Quote of the Day

To act without clear understanding,
to form habits without investigation,
to follow a path all one’s life
without knowing where it really leads —
such is the behavior of the multitude.

— Mencius

Quote of the Day

It is necessary to the happiness of man, that he be mentally
faithful to himself. Infidelity does not consist in believing, or in
disbelieving; it consists in professing to believe what he does not
believe.
-- Thomas Paine

Quote of the Day

I am not free until I say so.
And there’s a good chance I am going to have to fight once I do.
Ever since I declared my Independence, I have had to support and defend it.

— Eric Schaub

Quote of the Day

No cause is left but the most ancient of all,
the one, in fact, that from the beginning of our history
has determined the very existence of politics,
the cause of freedom versus tyranny.

— Hannah Arendt

Quote of the Day

Extinction is the rule. Survival is the exception.

—Carl Sagan

Quote of the Day

Freedom is not something that can be given.
Freedom is something people take,
and people are as free as they want to be.

— James Baldwin

Quote of the Day

I am concerned for the security of our great Nation;
not so much because of any threat from without,
but because of the insidious forces working from within.

— General Douglas MacArthur
