General George Patton insisted, "It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived."

“It does not take a majority to prevail... but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men.” —Samuel Adams

“Love your neighbor as yourself and your country more than yourself.” —Thomas Jefferson

“If it be asked, What is the most sacred duty and the greatest source of our security in a Republic? The answer would be, An inviolable respect for the Constitution and Laws—the first growing out of the last... A sacred respect for the constitutional law is the vital principle, the sustaining energy of a free government.” —Alexander Hamilton

“The gun has been called the great equalizer, meaning that a small person with a gun is equal to a large person, but it is a great equalizer in another way, too. It insures that the people are the equal of their government whenever that government forgets that it is servant and not master of the governed. When the British forgot that they got a revolution. And, as a result, we Americans got a Constitution; a Constitution that, as those who wrote it were determined, would keep men free. If we give up part of that Constitution we give up part of our freedom and increase the chance that we will lose it all. I am not ready to take that risk. I believe that the right of the citizen to keep and bear arms must not be infringed if liberty in America is to survive.” —Ronald Reagan

"Our obligations to our country never cease but with our lives." --John Adams- Letter to Benjamin Rush, 18 April 1808.

One that I have personally forgotten too many times, but seems relevant in these highly charged times:

"If someone says, 'I love God,' and hates his brother, he is a liar; for the one who does not love his brother whom he has seen, cannot love God whom he has not seen." (1 John 4:20)

They who can give up essential liberty to obain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty or safety.

'Harumph! Grumpf! Ahhh! Coffee!!' Rooster Cogburn (John Wayne) in True Grit

'Well, an unloaded and cocked revolver ain't much good.' Same as above (Maybe not an exact quote, but close.)

'Yes, sir, I realize I am under oath, just as I realize you are not.' Topeka Police Detective Jim Gilchrist, replying from the stand to a particularly sleazy defense attorney.

Give me $1 every time a Liberal lies, I'll give you $5 every time one tells the truth; I'll end up a wealthy man, you'll end up broke.
