General / People / Places / May 30, 2022

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

“This country, with its institutions, belongs to the people who inhabit it. Whenever they shall grow weary of the existing government, they can exercise their constitutional right of amending it, or exercise their revolutionary right to overthrow it.”

  • Abraham Lincoln

“Dante once said that the hottest places in hell are reserved for those who in periods of moral crisis maintain their neutrality.”

  • John F. Kennedy

“Every time we turn our heads the other way when we see the law flouted, when we tolerate what we know to be wrong, when we close our eyes and ears to the corrupt because we are too busy or too frightened, when we fail to speak up and speak out, we strike a blow against freedom and decency and justice.”

  • Robert F. Kennedy

“It has been said that politics is the second oldest profession. I have learned that it bears a striking resemblance to the first.”

  • Ronald Reagan
