When we blindly adopt a religion, a political system, a literary dogma, we become automatons. We cease to grow.
~ Anais Nin (February 21, 1903 - January 14, 1977)
The powers in charge keep us in a perpetual state of fear keep us in a continuous stampede of patriotic fervor with the cry of grave national emergency. Always there has been some terrible evil to gobble us up if we did not blindly rally behind it by furnishing the exorbitant sums demanded. Yet, in retrospect, these disasters seem never to have happened, seem never to have been quite real.
~ Douglas MacArthur (January 26, 1880 - April 05, 1964)
We live in an age when to be young and to be indifferent can be no longer synonymous. We must prepare for the coming hour. The claims of the Future are represented by suffering millions; and the Youth of a Nation are the trustees of Posterity.
~ Benjamin Disraeli (December 21, 1804 - April 19, 1881)
