Some great quotes...

...from today's Patriot Post:

"The world is a dangerous place to live—not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it."
—Albert Einstein

"The shortest and surest way to live with honor in the world is to be in reality what we would appear to be."

"Right actions for the future are the best apologies for wrong ones in the past."
—Tyron Edwards

"It is dangerous to be right in matters on which the established authorities are wrong."

"No written law has ever been more binding than unwritten custom supported by popular opinion."
—Carrie Chapman Catt

"There is a terrible lot of us who don't think that we come from a monkey, but if there are some people who think that they do, why, it's not our business to rob them of what little pleasure they might get out of imagining it."
—Will Rogers

"Everything our leaders do must be judged by whether it helps or hurts us in defeating terrorists and their state sponsors."
—Newt Gingrich

"It would be dangerous to be in a world without partners. But it would be more dangerous to see friendship where none exists."
—Tony Blankley

"The Increasing Complexity of Everything is good for liberalism (government should be vital, large, demand and bestow much) and not conservatism (government should be smaller, less powerful, less demanding of the treasure and liberty of the citizenry). When everything is a big complicated morass, regular normal people, voters, constituents, become intellectually disheartened. They can also lose sight of core principles."
—Peggy Noonan

"[Sen. Joe] Lieberman isn't only pro-war, he's seen as pro-Bush—a far greater sin... Hatred of Bush drives—or poisons—almost everything in liberal politics now."
—Jonah Goldberg

"Americans in Iraq have found 500 sarin- and mustard-gas-filled artillery shells, live botulinum toxin, cyanide salt, and nearly two tons of uranium... Without threatening intelligence contacts and techniques, the ever-bashful Bush administration owes it to American taxpayers and our Coalition allies to unveil everything it safely can about what we really have found in Iraq."
—Deroy Murdock

"As nightfall does not come at once, neither does oppression. In both instances, there's a twilight where everything remains seemingly unchanged, and it is in such twilight that we must be aware of change in the air, however slight, lest we become unwitting victims of the darkness."
—Supreme Court Justice William Douglas

"[M]uch of the media treats statements by terrorists and their supporters as true and any denials of wrongdoing by American troops as false and 'a coverup.' These are the same liberal media people who claim to be 'honoring our troops' when they hype every casualty and make a big production of each landmark death, such as the 1000th American killed in Iraq and then the 2000th... We all need to understand the fraudulence of the claim that these media liberals who have been against the military for decades and who have missed no opportunity to smear the military in Iraq are now in the forefront of 'honoring' our troops by rubbing our noses in their deaths, day in and day out. Troops who have won medals for bravery in battle—including one soldier who won a Congressional Medal of Honor at the cost of his life—go unmentioned in most of the mainstream media that is focused on our troops as casualties that they can exploit... Every newspaper and every television commentator has a right to criticize any aspect of the war in Iraq or anywhere else. But when they claim to be reporting the news, that does not mean filtering out whatever goes against their editorial views and hyping unsubstantiated claims that discredit the troops."
—Thomas Sowell
