“A nickel ain’t worth a dime anymore.”                                                                                                                                                                 -Yogi Berra

“I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties
than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to
control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation,
the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive
the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the
continent their fathers conquered.”                                                                                                                 
-Thomas Jefferson (in 1862)

“This year we’ve got to watch ourselves…not to mention everybody else!                                                                                                                                                                            – S. Mann

“You can’t push a bullet back into a gun, you say that you’re sorry but the damage is done. You may as well try to blow out the sun…you can’t push a bullet back into a gun!”
– A. Wayne

“Knowledge speaks, but wisdom istens.”                                                                                                                                                                        – Jimi Hendrix   



“We get infatuated with the illusion of people’s perfections. We fall in love with the reality of their imperfections.”                                                                                                                                                        – Mark Wirtz

“I have learned that success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has had to overcome while trying to succeed.”
– Booker T. Washington

“Positive thinking brings results we desire”
– Dr. Henry Mundt

“Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man’s character, give him power.”                                                                                                                                                                      – Abraham Lincoln

“We have been told we cannot do this by a chorus of cynics who will only grow louder and more dissonant in the weeks to come. We’ve been asked to pause for a reality check. We’ve been warned against offering the people of this nation false hope. But in the unlikely story that is America, there has never been anything false about hope. For when we have faced down impossible odds; when we’ve been told that we’re not ready, or that we shouldn’t try, or that we can’t, generations of Americans have responded with a simple creed that sums up the spirit of a people. Yes we can.”                                                                                                                                             – Barack Obama
