Youth is full of innocence, full of enthusiasm, full of trust, and quite oblivious to the sins and weaknesses throughout our sad human history of dysfunctional existence!!

From Althea Gibson

The loser always has an excuse; the winner always has a program. The loser says it may be possible, but it is difficult; the winner says it may be difficult, but it is possible.

From John Holt

We can best help children, not by deciding what we think they should learn and thinking of ingenious ways to teach them, but by making the world, as far as we can, accessible to them, paying serious attention to what they do, answering their questions -- if they have any -- and helping them explore the things they are most interested in.

From Albert Einstein

Never do anything against your conscience; even if the state demands it.

From Mobster James " Whitey " Bulger

Advice is a cheap commodity, some seek it from me about crime - I know only one thing for sure - If you want to make crime pay - Go to Law School.

More From Leonard Read

Honesty - each person true to his highest conscience - is the condition from which revelation springs; from which knowledge expands; from which intelligence grows; from which judgments improve. It is a never-ending, eternally challenging - a thoroughly joyous - process. Indeed, it is living in its higher sense.

From Auberon Herbert

If a man is to be a really good parent, or a really thoughtful and self-directing man, it must not be because by law or by some other brutal force method you have tied his hands, but because of an inner sense in himself as to what is right, which he respects and obeys; and this inner sense tends only to survive in the free man.

From John Jones

Honesty is doing the right thing when some one is looking.
Integrity is doing so when no one is.

From Laurence M. Vance

Members of the U.S. military do the dirty work of the U.S. government. They should not be thanked. They should not be praised. They should not be honored. They should be pitied, sympathized with, forgiven, helped, and, above all, told the truth about the evils of the U.S. government, its military, and its foreign policy.

From J. Gresham Machen

I believe that in the sphere of the mind we should have absolutely unlimited competition - A public education that is not faced by such competition of private schools is one of the deadliest enemies to liberty that has ever been devised. I think that when it comes to the training of human beings, you have to be a great deal more careful than you do in other spheres about preservation of the right of individual liberty and the principle of individual responsibility; and I think we ought to be plain about this - that unless we preserve the principles of liberty in this department there is no use in trying to preserve them anywhere else. If you give the bureaucrats the children, you might as well give them everything else as well.

From Supreme Court Justice George Sutherland

Good character does not consist in the mere ability to store away in the memory a collection of moral aphorisms that runs loosely off the tongue-- Character to be good must be stable -- must have taken root. It is an acquisition of thought and conduct which have become habitual -- so firmly fixed in the conscience, and indeed in the body itself, as to insure unhesitating rejection of an impulse to do wrong.

From Neil Pearl

When they turn the pages of history
When these days have passed long ago
Will they read of us with sadness
For the seeds that we let grow?
We turned our gaze
From the castles in the distance
Eyes cast down
On the path of least resistance.

Cities full of hatred, fear and lies
Withered hearts and cruel, tormented eyes
Scheming demons dressed in kingly guise
Beating down the multitude and
Scoffing at the wise!

Some people believe that more study is needed about narcotics; I am not one of them!! As far as I am concerned there is not any difference between a terrorist bomber and a narcotics importer/distributor!! The bomber kills many Americans very quickly; the narcotics importer/distributor kills many Americans by slowly poisoning them and their loved ones!! Treason is treason in my book and anyone poisoning our society with drugs is a cold blooded traitor!!

From Robert A. Heinlen

Government! Three fourths parasitic and the other fourth stupid fumbling--oh, he conceded that man, a social animal, could not avoid having government, any more than an individual man could escape his lifelong bondage to his bowels. But Harshaw did not have to like it. Simply because an evil was inescapable was no reason to term it a "good." He wished that government would wander off and get lost!
