Some Wise Quotes

“A general dissolution of principles and manners will more surely overthrow the liberties of America than the whole force of a common enemy.  While the people are virtuous they cannot be subdued: but when once they lose their virtue then they will be ready to surrender their liberties to the first external or internal invader.” – Samuel Adams

“We, the People, are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts, not to overthrow the Constitution, but to overthrow men who pervert the Constitution.” – Abraham Lincoln

“Doing for people what they can and ought to do for themselves is a dangerous experiment.  In the last analysis the welfare of the workers depends upon their own initiative.  Whatever is done under the guise of philanthropy or social morality which in any way lessens initiative is the greatest crime that can be committed against the toilers.  Let social busybodies and professional ‘public moral experts’ in their fads reflect upon the perils they rashly invite under this pretense of social welfare.” – Samuel Gompers (Founder and Organizer of the American Labor Unions)
