• Quote of the week

    "Many times we think someone is ranting, but they're actually speaking with conviction, and everyone has just forgotten the sound of real Passion. We're so afraid of absolutes and a strong gut and digging in your heels that we dismiss the powerful voice of a Lonely fighter. Listen for quiet strength, for humble confidence. It's not often someone will stand for what is Right, what is True, what is Pure. More often we're afraid to admit we're afraid, because the Truth is so blinding in a Dark world."
    ― -J.S. Park

  • Famous Quotes In History

    "I think the subject which will be of most importance politically is mass psychology....Although this science will be diligently studied, it will be rigidly confined to the governing class. The populace will not be allowed to know how its convictions were generated."
    -- Bertrand Russell in The Impact of Science on Society  
     
    “Beware the leader who bangs the drums of war in order to whip the citizenry into a patriotic fervor, for patriotism is indeed a double-edged sword. It both emboldens the blood, just as it narrows the mind. And when the drums of war have reached a fever pitch and the blood boils with hate and the mind has closed, the leader will have no need in seizing the rights of the citizenry. Rather, the citizenry, infused with fear and blinded by patriotism, will offer up all of their rights unto the leader and gladly so. How do I know? For this is what I have done. And I am Caesar.”
    – Julius Caesar
