Quote of the Day

The essential characteristic of Western civilization that distinguishes it from the arrested and petrified civilizations of the East was and is its concern for freedom from the state. The history of the West, from the age of the Greek polis down to the present-day resistance to socialism, is essentially the history of the fight for liberty against the encroachments of the officeholders.
- Ludwig von Mises

And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people, maybe more.

People hearing without listening,
People writing songs that voices never share
No one dare
Disturb the sound of silence.

Quote of the Day

For what is a man, what has he got?
If not himself, then he has naught.
To say the things he truly feels;
And not the words of one who kneels.
The record shows I took the blows -
And did it my way!
- Frank Sinatra, from "My Way"

Quote of the Day

"If you drive a car, I'll tax the street,
If you try to sit, I'll tax your seat.
If you get too cold I'll tax the heat,
If you take a walk, I'll tax your feet.
Don't ask me what I want it for
If you don't want to pay some more'
'Cause I'm the taxman, yeah, I'm the taxman"
- The Beatles

Quote of the Day

How many years can a mountain exist
Before it is washed to the sea?
How many years can some people exist
Before they’re allowed to be free?
How many times can a man turn his head
And pretend that he just don’t see?
The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind
The answer is blowin’ in the wind
- Bob Dylan, from “Blowing in the wind”

Saturday, March 4, 2017

Quote of the Day

If we insist that public life be reserved for those whose personal history is pristine, we are not going to get paragons of virtue running our affairs.
