Clifford Lafrenier Quotes

"A personal agenda is a fools agenda."

Joanna Bourke Quotes

"Sir, — Whether women are the equals of men has been endlessly debated; whether they have souls has been a moot point; but can it be too much to ask [for a definitive acknowledgement that at least they are animals?… Many hon. members may object to the proposed Bill enacting that, in statutes respecting the suffrage, wherever words occur which import the masculine gender they shall be held to include women; but could any object to the insertion of a clause in another Act that whenever the word "animal" occur it shall be held to include women? Suffer me, thorough your columns, to appeal to our 650 [parliamentary] representatives, and ask — Is there not one among you then who will introduce such a motion? There would then be at least an equal interdict on wanton barbarity to cat, dog, or woman… Yours respectfully, AN EARNEST ENGLISHWOMAN"

Myrna Loy Quotes

"I think that carrying on a life that is meant to be private in public is a breach of taste, common sense, and mental hygiene."

G Edward Griffin Quotes

     I believe that the proper role of the state is negative, not positive; defensive, not aggressive. It is to protect, not to provide; for if the state is granted the power to provide for some, it must also be able to take from others, and that always leads to legalized plunder and loss of freedom. If the state can give us everything we want, it also must be powerful enough to take from us everything we have. Therefore, the proper function of the state is to protect the lives, liberty, and property of its citizens, nothing more. That state is best which governs least."
