Louisa May Alcott

Do not allow to slip away from you freedoms the people who came before you won with such hard knocks.
D. H. Lawrence
But only 'rich' people by definition have the 'extra' money to buy things and invest to create economic growth. Do we really want to tax that 'extra' money away - and give it to the government to spend?

If you've lost focus, just sit down and be still. Take the idea and rock it to and fro. Keep some of it and throw some away, and it will renew itself. You need do no more.
Clarissa Pinkola Estes

Your faith in yourself is all you will ever have. Don't let anyone take it away from you, ever.
Holly Marie Combs
All good is hard. All evil is easy. Dying, losing, cheating, and mediocrity is easy. Stay away from easy.
I have a loyalty that runs in my bloodstream, when I lock into someone or something, you can't get me away from it because I commit that thoroughly. That's in friendship, that's a deal, that's a commitment. Don't give me paper - I can get the same lawyer who drew it up to break it. But if you shake my hand, that's for life.
John F. Kennedy
Martin Luther King, Jr.
