Edward Abbey
“I doubt that my sense of personal freedom is any stronger than anybody else's. I'm happy to respect authority when it's genuine authority, based on moral or intellectual or even technical superiority. I'm eager to follow a hero if we can find one. But I tend to resist or evade any kind of authority based merely on the power to coerce. Government, for example. The Army tried to train us to salute the uniform, not the man. Failed. I will salute the man, maybe, if I think he's worthy of it, but I don't salute uniforms anymore.”
Edward Abbey, Postcards from Ed: Dispatches and Salvos from an American Iconoclast

Craig Ferguson
“Stand by your bed and salute me.”
Craig Ferguson

Benjamin Franklin
“Some guns were fired to give notice that the departure of the balloon was near. ... Means were used, I am told, to prevent the great balloon's rising so high as might endanger its bursting. Several bags of sand were taken on board before the cord that held it down was cut, and the whole weight being then too much to be lifted, such a quantity was discharged as would permit its rising slowly. Thus it would sooner arrive at that region where it would be in equilibrio with the surrounding air, and by discharging more sand afterwards, it might go higher if desired. Between one and two o'clock, all eyes were gratified with seeing it rise majestically from above the trees, and ascend gradually above the buildings, a most beautiful spectacle. When it was about two hundred feet high, the brave adventurers held out and waved a little white pennant, on both sides of their car, to salute the spectators, who returned loud claps of applause. The wind was very little, so that the object though moving to the northward, continued long in view; and it was a great while before the admiring people began to disperse. The persons embarked were Mr. Charles, professor of experimental philosophy, and a zealous promoter of that science; and one of the Messrs Robert, the very ingenious constructors of the machine.

{While U.S. ambassador to France, writing about witnessing, from his carriage outside the garden of Tuileries, Paris, the first manned balloon ascent using hydrogen gas by Jacques Charles on the afternoon of 1 Dec 1783. A few days earlier, he had watched the first manned ascent in Montgolfier's hot-air balloon, on 21 Nov 1783.}”
Benjamin Franklin, Writings

“Continuò a essere così, anche quando il corpo cominciò a inviargli i primi segnali di allarme, perché aveva sempre avuto la salute di ferro della gente cagionevole.”

“Abbi cura della tua salute. Le torte alla panna sono cose da deboli.”

Enock Maregesi
“Vijana wa Tume walipofika kambini chini ya ulinzi mkali wakiwa na Kahima, polisi wengi walionekana kuwapigia saluti lakini wakubwa wao wakawakataza na kuwambia wao walikuwa watu wa kawaida kama wao. Walisindikizwa na lundo la polisi mpaka ndani ya jumba la utawala Murphy alimokuwa ameuhifadhi mwili wa Radia. Walipofika walishtuka, na hata kuwashangaza polisi. Mwili wa Radia haukuwepo! Walitafuta kila sehemu, na kuwambia polisi wawasaidie kutafuta, lakini Radia alishapotea. Murphy alipata wazo na kutoka nje, kwa kukimbia, polisi wengi wakimfuata; mpaka katika helikopta ya DEA ambapo alifungua mlango na kuingia ndani. Ndani ya helikopta hakukuwa na mtu!”
Enock Maregesi, Kolonia Santita

Some people in our country have woken up at 6am every single morning for decades now so that this nation can wake up and see great mornings. I salute all those wonderful super humans who are inspiring a better tomorrow. Thank you, Teachers!”
