Quotes of the Week

Every week as I am stumbling around the Internet I see some quotes that I like. I collect them and post them in a weekly roundup.  

"Carry your gun,  it's a lighter burden than regret." 

"Suppose Republicans win next year because we are “not the other guys.” Then what? Winning is necessary but not sufficient to save our country from fiscal disaster. Two years later the Democrats will still be offering free stuff and the postponement of pain. We can’t win the several subsequent elections that will be necessary to put us on the right path unless we win the war of ideas and develop the ability to explain why restraint and reform are necessary and that fostering a nation of free people, free markets, and the rule of law is not only morally just and right but is the only way to sustainable growth and prosperity. Otherwise, we become participants in our own demise, for the sake of short-term political expedience." 

--Fred Thompson

“It was a pleasant cafe, warm and clean and friendly, and I hung up my old water-proof on the coat rack to dry and put my worn and weathered felt hat on the rack above the bench and ordered a cafe au lait. The waiter brought it and I took out a notebook from the pocket of the coat and a pencil and started to write.”

--Ernest Hemingway

"People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf." 

--George Orwell

“We’ve done the impossible and that makes us mighty. ”

--Captain Mal, Firefly
