“Freedom for all,
Does not mean
A free for all for some”
I read this on a church sign in Hayward over the fourth of July.
I put together quotes from various famous people, thinking that you might enjoy what they all had to say:
“There’s one race that we have to worry about, and it’s the human race.” – Michael T. Flynn
“I like whiskey, I always did, and that is why I never drink it.” – Robert E. Lee
“Never step on a fresh turd on a hot summer day.” – Harry Truman
“I may have not been the greatest president, but I have had the most fun eight years.” – William Jefferson Clinton
“A riot is the language of the unheard.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.
“One can not wage war under the present conditions without the support of public opinion, which is tremendously molded by the press and other forms of propaganda.” – Douglas MacArthur.
“If I had my choice, I would kill every reporter in the world, but for sure we would be getting reports from hell before breakfast.” – William Tecumseh Sherman
“It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who have died, rather we should thank God that they lived.” – George S. Patton
“People have got to know whether or not their president is a crook. Well I’m not a crook. I’ve earned everything I’ve got.” – Richard Nixon, November 17, 1973 news conference
“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” – Eleanor Roosevelt.
“Spread love everywhere you go, let no one ever come to you without leaving happier.” – Mother Teresa
“If you look closely, most overnight successes took a long time.” – Steve Jobs
“I failed my way to success.” – Thomas Edison
“The newspaper is a greater treasure to the people than uncounted millions in gold.” – Thomas Jefferson
“Whether you think you can or you think you can’t, you’re right.” – Henry Ford
“And so, my fellow Americans: ask not what America will do for you—ask what you can do for our country.” – John F. Kennedy, Inaugural address-1961
“Our aim is not to do away with corporations; on the contrary, these big aggregations are an inevitable development of modern industrialism. We are not hostile to them; we are merely determined that they shall be so handled as to subserve the public good. We draw the line against misconduct, not against wealth.” – Theodore Roosevelt, State of the Union address, December 1902
“What, to the American slave, is your 4th of July? I answer, a day that reveals to him more than other days in the year, the gross injustice and cruelty to which he is the constant victim. To him, your celebration is a sham. There is not a nation on the earth guilty of practices more shocking and bloody than are the people of the United States, at this very hour.” – Frederick Douglass
“I never met a man that I didn’t like.” – Will Rogers
Thank you for reading, but I leave it to you to find out whom, Frederick Douglass was. ~Carlton
