Quote Cleanup II

Previous Favorite Quote: Your DNA may be destined to mingle with mine. Salutations!
-- Richard Dawkins

Previous Favorite Quote: Man will never truly be free until the last king has been strangled with the entrails of the last priest.
--Voltaire

Previous Favorite Quote: Observe constantly that all things take place by change, and accustom thyself to consider that the nature of the Universe loves nothing so much as to change the things which are, and to make new things like them.
-- Marcus Aurelius Antoninus, Meditations (ch. IV, 36)

Previous Favorite Quote: (courtesy of Ranson) "Of course the people don't want war. But after all, it's the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it's always a simple matter to drag the people along whether it's a democracy, a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism, and exposing the country to greater danger."
-- Herman Goering at the Nuremberg trials
