    as if it were the first day of your honeymoon,

    "He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog.
    You are his life, his love, his leader.
    He will be yours, faithful and true to the last beat of his heart.
    You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion." (Unknown)

    (to honor the love o' my life-Sammy. The abused, abandoned, bloodied,
    malnourished, infested, scared to death Shepherd Mix I found.
    They tell me I rescued him, but truth be told,
    he rescued me right back) *puppy*

    compared to what lies within us." (Ralph Waldo Emerson)

    (Because the old broom didn't know that forever only lasts 13 years , but
    the new broom did) :ouch:

    There are two kinds of people, those who do the work and those who take the credit. Try to be in the first group; there is less competition there.

    Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves. — William Pitt, 18 November 1783

    As my wife Cathy puts it so eloquently, if you beg for permission to do something it's already your right to do, you deserve to be told, "No." — L. Neil Smith, Lever Action: Essays on Liberty (2001)

    A nation of sheep will beget a government of wolves. — Edward R. Murrow

    The time for passive resistance and legal redress is past, and the time to take up arms has come. — John Ross, Unintended Consequences (1996)

    In any compromise between good and evil, it is only evil that can profit. — Ayn Rand

    All of our liberties are due to men who, when their conscience has compelled them, have broken the laws of the land. — Dr. William K. Clifford

    The unarmed man is not just defenseless, he is also contemptible. — Niccolo Machiavelli

    None are so hopelessly enslaved as those who falsely believe they are free. — Johann von Goethe

    Unless we are brave we will never be free. It has been generations since we have been brave, and thus generations since we have been free. It's time to quit resting on the laurels of 1776. It's time to quit coasting on the momentum given us by the blood of 18th century patriots. We either roll over like puppies with urine soaked pink bellies, or we stand up and fight like Americans once did. There is no middle ground. There never was. — Boston T. Party, Molon Labe! (2004)

    Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of authority. It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters. — Daniel Webster

    Live free or die. Death is not the worst of evils. — General John Stark, 1809, speech to veterans of the Battle of Bennington (1777)

    It is just as difficult and dangerous to try and free a people that wants to remain servile as it is to enslave a people that wants to remain free. — Niccolo Machiavelli

    An unarmed man can only flee from evil, and evil is not overcome by fleeing from it. — Jeff Cooper, Lt. Col., USMC (Ret.)

    "This is the first age that's ever paid much attention to the future, which is a little ironic since we may not have one. "

    If you see a man approaching you with the obvious intent of doing you good, run for your life. — Henry David Thoreau

    We must confine ourselves to the powers described in the Constitution, and the moment we pass it, we take an arbitrary stride towards a despotic Government. — James Jackson, first U.S. Congress

    America is at that awkward stage. It’s too late to work within the system, but too early to shoot the bastards. — Claire Wolfe, 101 Things to Do ‘til the Revolution (1996)

    Diplomacy is the art of saying, “Nice Doggie,” while you’re looking for a rock. — Will Rogers

    After the first one, the rest are free. — creed of resistance fighters

    The more numerous the laws, the more corrupt the State. — Tacitus

    Traveling unarmed is like boating without a lifejacket. — The Guru

    We find it perplexing that there are people who do not realize that a right may be neither granted nor withdrawn by the State. If the Bill of Rights were repealed, the right to keep and bear arms would still exist, since it was to defend that right that the Constitution was established. (See the Declaration of Independence.) Thus the state may destroy me, but it may not rescind my right to self-defense. This all seems pretty clear, but frequently I find people who do not understand it. — Jeff Cooper, LTC, USMC (Ret).

    When buying and selling are controlled by legislation, the first things to be bought and sold are legislators. — P. J. O’Rourke

    Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote. — Benjamin Franklin, 1759

    In matters of style, swim with the current; in matters of principle, stand like a rock. — Thomas Jefferson

    Liberty means responsibility. That is why most men dread it. — George Bernard Shaw

    Democracy is a pathetic belief in the collective wisdom of individual ignorance. — H. L. Mencken

    It has been said that democracy is the worst form of government except all the others that have been tried. - Sir Winston Churchill
