Barry Goldwater

Tennessee Williams

Ida B. Wells

We, the People, recognize that we have responsibilities as well as rights; that our destinies are bound together; that a freedom which only asks what's in it for me, a freedom without a commitment to others, a freedom without love or charity or duty or patriotism, is unworthy of our founding ideals, and those who died in their defense.
Barack Obama

In battle it is the cowards who run the most risk; bravery is a rampart of defense.
Sallust
