Quote of the Day

The room being hung around with a collection of the portraits of remarkable men, among them were those of Bacon, Newton and Locke. Hamilton asked me who they were. I told him they were my trinity of the three greatest men the world had ever produced, naming them. He paused for some time: "The greatest man," said he, "that ever lived, was Julius Caesar."

~ Letter to Dr. Benjamin Rush

Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil.

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

- Ephesians 6: 10-20

"An extraordinary and very perilous state of affairs had been created in the [US] South by the sudden and absolute emancipation of the negroes. Here was a vast laboring, landless, homeless class, once slaves, now free; unpractised in liberty, unschooled in self-control; never sobered by the discipline of self-support never established in any habit of prudence; excited by a freedom they did not understand, excited by false hopes; bewildered and without leaders, and yet insolent and aggressive; sick of work, covetous of pleasure - a host of dusky children untimely put out of school."

- Woodrow Wilson

Freedom is indivisible, and when one man is enslaved, all are not free.

An eye for an eye only ends up making the whole world blind.

- Mohandas Gandhi

I find television very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book.

- Groucho Marx

Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.

- John F. Kennedy

Consciousness means, literally, "knowing-together." A development of consciousness would therefore mean knowing "more together," and so it would bring about a new relationship to everything previously known. For to know more always means to see things differently.

- Maurice Nicoll
