Patience has its limits. Take it too far, and it's cowardice.
War, famine, poverty and oppression of the workers will continue while woman makes life cheap. They will cease only when she limits her reproductivity and human life is no longer a thing to be wasted.

Giorgio de Chirico
In the early 1930s, flying from England to Australia was the longest flight in the world. It was considered extremely dangerous and hazardous, pushing pilots to the limits of mechanical skills and human endurance. Aviation was young.
Government exists to protect us from each other. Where government has gone beyond its limits is in deciding to protect us from ourselves.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
