"A politician works for the next election. A statesman works for the next generation." -- John Trochman

"Don't impose your social values upon me." -- a pre-born baby

"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things.
The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feelings which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse.
A man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety,
is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free
unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself."
-- John Stuart Mill
