Thought For the Week (Special #July4 Edition)

It is July 4 where we in America celebrate America's Independence, families get together and then go out and enjoy the fireworks that would light up the skies throughout America. As we continue our strategic review, we hope all enjoy these compilation of thoughts:


The end does NOT justify the means.
Freedom cannot be gained by sacrificing the freedom of others.
Free speech cannot be gained by limiting the free speech of others.
Human rights cannot be secured by trampling the human rights of others.
Viciousness in others cannot be fought by becoming vicious oneself.
Neither individual nor nation can long survive by meeting hatred with hatred,
injustice with injustice, prejudice with prejudice.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Give to every human being every right that you claim for yourself.
- Robert Green Ingersoll

Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.
- Emma Lazarus - written on the Statue of Liberty in New York harbor

They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety,
deserve neither liberty nor safety.
- Benjamin Franklin

We hold these truths to be self-evident:
that all men are created equal,
that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights,
among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
- Thomas Jefferson [Declaration of Independence, and inscribed in the Jefferson Memorial]

The best way to enhance freedom in other lands
is to demonstrate here that our democratic system is worthy of emulation.
- Jimmy Carter

The only thing necessary for evil to triumph
is for enough good men to do nothing.
- Edmund Burke
