Quote of the Day
I am not afraid of an army of lions led by a sheep; I am afraid of an army of sheep led by a lion.
Alexander the Great
If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.
It's better to be a lion for a day than a sheep all your life.

Without tradition, art is a flock of sheep without a shepherd. Without innovation, it is a corpse.
The concept of two people living together for 25 years without a serious dispute suggests a lack of spirit only to be admired in sheep.
A. P. Herbert
March is a month without mercy for rabid basketball fans. There is no such thing as a 'gentleman gambler' when the Big Dance rolls around.

Hunter S. Thompson

Today, most women are surrounded by ingenious gadgets. They don't grow the peas or raise the chicken that they serve for dinner; instead they hunt and gather in the grocery store. They go through catalogs or department stores to buy clothes instead of shearing sheep, carding wool, and weaving cloth for skirts and coats and blankets.
I wanted to be a farmer's wife. I thought it would be quite fun to wake up of a morning, collect eggs and have sheep and pigs as pets. I know now that it would also involve having to sleep with the farmer, but at the time I wasn't thinking about the sexual implications - I was 11.
The seaman tells stories of winds, the ploughman of bulls; the soldier details his wounds, the shepherd his sheep.

Martin Luther King, Jr.
