Familiar Quotations, Part 2

Familiar Quotations, Part 1


When facism comes to America it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross. . . . Sinclair Lewis

"Man has no right to kill his brother. It is no excuse that he does so in uniform:
he only adds the infamy of servitude to the crime of murder." . . . Percy Bysshe Shelley

*  *  *

Believe nothing just because a so-called wise person said it.
Believe nothing just because a belief is generally held.
Believe nothing just because it is said in ancient books.
Believe nothing just because it is said to be of divine origin.
Believe nothing just because someone else believes it.
Believe only what you yourself test and judge to be true.
. . . . Buddha - Hindu Prince Gautama Siddharta

"I refuse to be silent any longer. I refuse to be party to an illegal and immoral war against
people who did nothing to deserve our aggression. My oath of office is to
protect and defend America's laws and its people. By
refusing unlawful orders for an illegal war,
I fulfill that oath today."
. . . . U.S. Army First Lt. Ehren Watada
Lt. Watada's biography and the status of charges preferred against him may be seen here.

"There is no flag large enough to cover the shame of killing
innocent people for a purpose which is unattainable."  
. . . . Howard Zinn, U.S. historian 1993

"The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political,
economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the
State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of
the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State."
. . . . Joseph Goebbels, born in 1897, died in 1945. Goebbels was
Hitler's Minister of Propaganda

"So I put this on as a modest riposte to men with flags in their lapels who shoot missiles from the safety of
Washington think tanks, or argue that sacrifice is good as long as they don't have to make it, or approve
of bribing governments to join the coalition of the willing (after they first stash the cash). I put it on
to remind myself that not every patriot thinks we should do to the people of Baghdad what bin
Laden did to us. The flag belongs to the country, not to the government. And it reminds me
that it's not un-American to think that war--except in self defense--is a failure of moral
imagination, political nerve and diplomacy. Come to think of it, standing up to your
government can mean standing up for your country."
. . . . Bill Moyers, printed in the March 6, 2003, Fort Worth Star-Telegram,
on why he chose to wear an American flag lapel pin on his PBS program

"Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just."
. . . . Thomas Jefferson

"Men never do evil so completely and cheerfully as when they do it from religious conviction."
. . . . Blaise P

"The worst sin toward our fellow creatures is not to hate them,
but to be indifferent to them: that's the essence of inhumanity."
. . . . George Bernard Shaw
