Cormac McCarthy
“It's a life's work to see yourself for what you really are and even then you might be wrong. And that is something I don't want to be wrong about.”
Cormac McCarthy, No Country for Old Men

Mark Twain
“Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.”
Mark Twain

Don Watkins
“The true source of economic security is self-reliance and economic freedom—Social Security is immoral because it subverts both.”
Don Watkins, Rooseveltcare: How Social Security is Sabotaging the Land of Self Reliance

Rose Wilder Lane
“Anyone who says that economic security is a human right, has been to much babied. While he babbles, other men are risking and losing their lives to protect him. They are fighting the sea, fighting the land, fighting disease and insects and weather and space and time, for him, while he chatters that all men have a right to security and that some pagan god—Society, The State, The Government, The Commune—must give it to them. Let the fighting men stop fighting this inhuman earth for one hour, and he will learn how much security there is.”
Rose Wilder Lane
