If a nation expects to be ignorant and free... it expects what never was and never will be."
                                                                                                Thomas Jefferson, 1816.

Politics ought to be the part-time profession of every citizen who would protect the rights and privileges of free people and who would preserve what is good and fruitful in our national heritage.''
                                                                                                                                Dwight Eisenhower

We can have democracy in this country, or we can have great wealth concentrated in the hands of a few, but we can't have both.
                                                                                                                                      Justice Louis Brandeis

It is more important that a proposition be interesting than that it be true.
                                                                        Alfred North Whitehead

Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted.
                                                                                                                   Albert Einstein

Education is not the filling of a pail but the lighting of a fire.
                                                                    W. B. Yeats

Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one must be silent.
                                                    Ludwig J. J. Wittgenstein
