I've seen some good quotes supplied by my fellow Munuvians. Here are a couple that cought my eye this morning.

From Rocket Jones:

"Government big enough to supply everything you need is big enough to take everything you have ... The course of history shows that as a government grows, liberty decreases." -- Thomas Jefferson

From Practical Penumbra:

"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling that thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person 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

And finally, from Jen's History & Stuff:

"This is gonna be my time. Time to taste the fruits and let the juices drip down my chin. I proclaim this: The Summer of George!"
-George Costanza

Well, they can't all be gems.

I agree. Who was that Jefferson guy? His quote sucked. :)
