    - - from brainyquote.com - -

    Thomas Jefferson said in 1802:
    ‘I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies.
    If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property - until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.’

    To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes the propagation of ideas which he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.

    My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government.

    From Life, Etc., by Charlie Swayze

    If you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you've always got.

    What is simple is seldom understood.

    The only difference between stepping stones and stumbling blocks is how you use them.

    You can tell what's inside someone by what they laugh at.

    Having nothing to say seldom stops anyone from saying it.

    You never have to explain something you never said.
