Quote of the day.....

If the innocent honest Man must quietly quit 

all he has for Peace sake, to him 

who will lay violent hands upon it, 

I desire it may be considered what kind of Peace 

there will be in the World, 

which consists only in Violence and Rapine; and 

which is to be maintained only for 

the benefit of Robbers and Oppressors.

-- John Locke
(1632-1704) English philosopher and political theorist.

"You can’t, in sound morals,

condemn a man for taking care of his own integrity.

It is his clear duty.

-- Joseph Conrad
