Thinking eliminates arrogance & ignorance… among those who can successfully think.

You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something, sometime in your life."
-- Winston Churchill
“The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave.”
— Patrick Henry
“I love the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. ‘Tis the business of little minds to shrink; but he whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves his conduct, will pursue his principles unto death.”
— Thomas Paine
“These are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of his country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman.”
— Thomas Paine
War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things; the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks nothing worth a war, is worse. A man who has nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety is a miserable creature who has no chance at being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.
— John Stuart Mill
