Words to live by...

Every now and then I find a quote that speaks volumes of truth... Truth that is just as relevant today as when the words were first spoken.
"If we desire to avoid insult, we must be able to repel it; if we desire to secure peace, one of the most powerful instruments of our rising prosperity, it must be known that we are at all times ready for war." --George Washington
It is a perplexing and unpleasant truth that when men already have "something worth fighting for," they do not feel like fighting. - Eric Hoffer
"The value of liberty was thus enhanced in our estimation by the difficulty of its attainment, and the worth of characters appreciated by the trial of adversity." --George Washington
"I would rather be exposed to the inconveniencies attending too much liberty than those attending too small a degree of it." --Thomas Jefferson
Socialism in general has a record of failure so blatant that only an intellectual could ignore or evade it.
- Thomas Sowell
Pseudo intellectuals can formulate their opinions and state their findings, but liberty can only be attained by those who are willing, if nesessary, to defend it with blood. I would rater listen to the likes of Washington and Jefferson who proved their value to liberty than all the thinkers of today who have nothing more than theories that are sweet to the ear, yet bankrupt in ability when it comes to securing liberty and peace.
