    Quotes that are just as relevant today as they ever were

    This will be my official R.Q.O.T.D (relevant quote of the day) thread.


    A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague.

    -Marcus Tullius Cicero
    Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind dont matter and those who matter dont mind. - Dr. Seuss

    "A man can no more diminish God's glory by refusing to worship Him than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word, 'darkness' on the walls of his cell."

    - C. S. Lewis

    I wish to share some that I believe are timeless:

    "What we have done for ourselves dies with us, what we have done for others and the world is immortal."

    ~ Albert Pike (1809-1891)

    "For as long as men massacre animals, they will kill each other. Indeed, he who sows the seed of murder and pain cannot reap joy and love."

    ~ Pythagoras (582-507 BC)

    Anger is an acid that can do more harm to the vessel in which it is stored than to anything on which it is poured.

    ~ Mark Twain

    Man can now fly in the air like a bird, swim under the ocean like a fish, he can burrow into the ground like a mole. Now if only he could walk the earth like a man, this would be paradise.

    ~ Tommie Douglas

    There is a wonderful mythical law of nature that the three things we crave most in life -- happiness, freedom, and peace of mind -- are always attained by giving them to someone else.

    ~ Peyton Conway March

    Taught from infancy that beauty is woman's sceptre, the mind shapes itself to the body, and roaming round its gilt cage, only seeks to adorn its prison.

    ~ Mary Wollstonecraft

    I think Albert Pike was an Illuminati!
