Light Blogging

I'm on vacation today, tomorrow and Thursday, so blogging may be a bit light. I'll be back on Friday if for no other reason than to maintain the pointless tradition of Friday lists. In the meantime, I will leave with these quotes to ponder upon:

A Bible and a newspaper in every house, a good school in every district - all studied and appreciated as they merit - are the principle support of virtue, morality, and civil liberty.
When the people find they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic.
These profoundities brought to you by Benjamin Franklin.
as long as we're into Franklin quotes:

"They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety."

"The poor have little,
Beggars none;
The rich too much
Enough not one."

"There was never a good war or a bad peace."


"It is the first responsibility of every citizen to question authority."
Let's not forget these:

"Distrust and caution are the parents of security."
"The way to be safe is to never be secure."
"An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure."

"Light purse, heavy heart."
"Who is rich? He that rejoices in his Portion."
"Who is rich? He that is content. Who is that? Nobody."

"There is no little enemy."
"Those who in quarrels interpose, must often wipe a bloody nose."
"After crosses and losses, men grow humbler and wiser."

"The worst wheel of a cart makes the most noise."
"Any fool can criticize, condemn and complain and most fools do."
"He that cannot obey, cannot command."
