O/T Some 4th of July Week end Thoughts

A society grows great when old men plant trees whose shade they know they shall never sit in.
–Greek proverb

When I despair, I remember that all through history, the way of truth and love has always won. There have been murderers and tyrants, and for a time they can seem invincible. But in the end they always fall. Think of it, always.
–Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi (1869-1948)

Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character, give him power.
–Abraham Lincoln, U.S. president (1809-1865)

Every society honors its live conformists and its dead troublemakers.
–Mignon McLaughlin, author

I ask you to judge me by the enemies I have made.
–Franklin D. Roosevelt, U.S. president (1932)

The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.
–George Bernard Shaw, writer, Nobel laureate (1856-1950)

It is the common fate of the indolent to see their rights become a prey to the active. The condition upon which God hath given liberty to man is eternal vigilance; which condition if he break, servitude is at once the consequence of his crime and the punishment of his guilt.
–John Philpot Curran: Speech upon the Right of Election, 1790.

To put the world in order, we must first put the nation in order; to put the nation in order, we must put the family in order; to put the family in order, we must cultivate our personal life; and to cultivate our personal life, we must first set our hearts right.
–Confucius
