I'm effectively retired now, and have been for some time. I may return at some point in the future, although that's somewhat unlikely. – Joe N 03:31, 13 March 2013 (UTC)

Interesting Quotes[edit]

I realize that this section is slightly cliché, but I've always had an affinity for quotes and often browse Wikiquote for fun.

War

"When the rich wage war it's the poor who die."

Jean-Paul Sartre, The Devil and the Good Lord

"When war is waged it is for the purpose of safeguarding or increasing one's capacity to make war. International politics are wholly involved in this vicious cycle. What is called national prestige consists in behaving always in such a way as to demoralize other nations by giving them the impression that, if it comes to war, one would certainly defeat them. What is called national security is an imaginary state of affairs in which one would retain the capacity to make war while depriving all other countries of it."

Simone Weil

"When war is declared, truth is the first casualty."

Arthur Ponsonby

"Mankind is a single body and each nation a part of that body. We must never say "What does it matter to me if some part of the world is ailing?" If there is such an illness, we must concern ourselves with it as though we were having that illness."

Mustafa Kemal Atatürk

"An eventual world state is not just desirable in the name of brotherhood, it is necessary for survival... Today we must abandon competition and secure cooperation. This must be the central fact in all our considerations of international affairs; otherwise we face certain disaster. Past thinking and methods did not prevent world wars. Future thinking must prevent wars."

Albert Einstein, Only Then Shall We Find Courage

"The responsibility of the great states is to serve and not to dominate the world."

Harry S. Truman

"War does not end strife - it sows it. War does not end hatred - it feeds it."

John Lewis

"War may sometimes be a necessary evil. But no matter how necessary, it is always an evil, never a good. We will not learn how to live together in peace by killing each other's children."

Jimmy Carter

"Working together, we can build a world in which the rule of law — not the rule of force — governs relations between states. A world in which leaders respect the rights of their people, and nations seek peace, not destruction or domination. And neither we nor anyone else should live in fear ever again."

Wesley Clark


Freedom

"Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety."

Benjamin Franklin

"The law will never make men free; it is men who have got to make the law free."

Henry David Thoreau, Slavery in Massachusetts

"The peculiar evil of silencing the expression of an opinion is, that it is robbing the human race; posterity as well as the existing generation; those who dissent from the opinion, still more than those who hold it. If the opinion is right, they are deprived of the opportunity of exchanging error for truth: if wrong, they lose, what is almost as great a benefit, the clearer perception and livelier impression of truth, produced by its collision with error."

John Stuart Mill, On Liberty

"I disapprove of what you say, but I defend to the death your right to say it."

Evelyn Beatrice Hall, The Friends of Voltaire

"When we lose the right to be different, we lose the privilege to be free."

Charles Evans Hughes

"You can only protect your liberties in this world by protecting the other man's freedom. You can only be free if I am free."

Clarence Darrow

"If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear."

George Orwell

"Throughout history, it has been the inaction of those who could have acted, the indifference of those who should have known better, the silence of the voice of justice when it mattered most, that has made it possible for evil to triumph."

Haile Selassie

"Don't join the book burners. Don't think you are going to conceal thoughts by concealing evidence that they ever existed."

Dwight D. Eisenhower

"Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable."

John F. Kennedy

" The struggle is always between the individual and his sacred right to express himself and the power structure that seeks conformity, suppression, and obedience."

William O. Douglas

"We know that the price of seeking to force our beliefs on others is that they might someday force theirs on us."

Mario Cuomo

"If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality."

Desmond Tutu

"If we don't believe in freedom of expression for people we despise, we don't believe in it at all."

Noam Chomsky

"The only real prison is fear, and the only real freedom is freedom from fear."

Aung San Suu Kyi

Knowledge

"Ignorance more frequently begets confidence than does knowledge: it is those who know little, not those who know much, who so positively assert that this or that problem will never be solved by science."

Charles Darwin, The Descent of Man

"There is no slavery but ignorance. Liberty is the child of intelligence."

Robert G. Ingersoll

"However unwillingly a person who has a strong opinion may admit the possibility that his opinion may be false, he ought to be moved by the consideration that, however true it may be, if it is not fully, frequently, and fearlessly discussed, it will be held as a dead dogma, not a living truth."

John Stuart Mill, On Liberty

"There is but one coward on earth, and that is the coward that dare not know."

W. E. B. Du Bois

"I believe in evidence. I believe in observation, measurement, and reasoning, confirmed by independent observers. I'll believe anything, no matter how wild and ridiculous, if there is evidence for it. The wilder and more ridiculous something is, however, the firmer and more solid the evidence will have to be."

Isaac Asimov

Education

"After bread, education is the first need of the people."

Georges Danton

"Next in importance to freedom and justice is popular education, without which neither freedom nor justice can be permanently maintained."

James A. Garfield

"It has always seemed strange to me that in our endless discussions about education so little stress is laid on the pleasure of becoming an educated person, the enormous interest it adds to life. To be able to be caught up into the world of thought — THAT is to be educated."

Edith Hamilton

"The principal goal of education in the schools should be creating men and women who are capable of doing new things, not simply repeating what other generations have done; men and women who are creative, inventive and discoverers, who can be critical and verify, and not accept, everything they are offered."

Jean Piaget

"I would rather have a mind opened by wonder than one closed by belief."

Gerry Spence

Today's Picture of the Day[edit]

Picture of the day
Dolomite

Dolomite (shown here with magnesite) is an anhydrous carbonate mineral composed of calcium magnesium carbonate. It forms white, tan, gray, or pink crystals, which do not react with dilute hydrochloric acid. Termed "stinking stone" by naturalist Belsazar Hacquet, the mineral gives the smell of petroleum when rubbed. It has multiple uses, including as a radiation buffer and a catalyst for destruction of tar.
