Monday quotes, just the way to start off the week.



"Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities. Thousands become the brave and loyal soldiers of the Queen; all know how to die; but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science - the science against which it had vainly struggled - the civilisation of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilisation of ancient Rome."
-Winston Churchill on Islam


“It is impossible to rightly govern a nation without God and the Bible.”
-George Washington


"When battle is joined, no noble knight thinks of anything other than breaking heads and arms."
-Bertran de Born


“We can have no "50-50" allegiance in this country. Either a man is an American and nothing else, or he is not an American at all.”
-Teddy Roosevelt


"The Constitution is not an instrument to restrain the people, it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government- lest it come to dominate our lives and interests."
-Patrick Henry


"We'll win this war, but we'll win it only by fighting and by showing the Germans that we've got more guts than they have; or ever will have. We're not going to just shoot the sons-of-b*tches, we're going to rip out their living Godd*mned guts and use them to grease the treads of our tanks."
-George S. Patton


"Any man that wants peace, let him prepare for war."
-Vegetius


"It does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen to set brush fires in people's minds."
-Samuel Adams


"I came, I saw, God conquered."
-Jan III Sobieski after saving Europe from Islamic invasion at the Battle of Vienna


"I know men and I tell you that Jesus Christ is no mere man. Between Him and every other person in the world there is no possible term of comparison. Alexander, Caesar, Charlemagne, and I have founded empires. But on what did we rest the creation of our genius? Upon force. Jesus Christ founded His empire upon love; and at this hour millions of men would die for Him."
-Napoleon Bonaparte on the impact of Jesus


"Many of them at 150 yards will hit a card nine times out of ten."
-British officer on American riflemen at the Siege of Boston


"The greatest advances of civilization, whether in architecture or painting, in science and literature, in industry or agriculture, have never come from centralized government."
-Milton Friedman


"We will have peace with the Arabs when they love their children more than they hate us."
-Golda Meir on the Israeli Palestinian conflict


"Firearms have been around for over 400 years, yet it is only in the last 20 years that people have begun shouting "gun control". Why then, only recently, has this become such an issue? Moreover, why are there more mass-murderers than at any other time in our known history? It is not because weapons are more powerful -- 200-year-old muzzleloaders have a much greater force-per-round than today's "assault rifles". It is not because weapons are semi- or fully-automatic -- rapid-fire weapons have been available for most of the last century. It is not due to a lack of laws -- we have more "gun control" laws than ever. It IS, however, because we have chosen to focus on "gun control" instead of crime control or "thug control."
-Kevin Langston


“Resolution One: I will live for God. Resolution Two: If no one else does, I still will.”
-Jonathan Edwards


“Liberalism is totalitarianism with a human face.”
-Thomas Sowell


"Approximately 80% of our air pollution stems from hydrocarbons released by vegetation, so let's not go overboard in setting and enforcing tough emission standards from man-made sources."
-Ronald Reagan


"Islam was founded on the Laws of their Prophet, that it was written in their Quran, that all nations who should not have acknowledged their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as Prisoners, and that every Musselman (Muslim) who should be slain in Battle was sure to go to Paradise."
-Thomas Jefferson and John Adams on Muslim hostility towards America
