I'd like to gather some succinct, powerful quotes related to freedom, especially as it relates to economics. I can google for quotes and find some in various books, but I'd also like some of your personal quotes, authored by yourself or someone else. I'm going to add references to the quotes and plan to try and make something out of it. What, I don't know. I've mentioned several times before that I think freedom lovers (basically loving things that tend to reduce government) should devise a campaign to educate the public. It's sometimes hard for the regular guys and gals, like myself, to understand the impact of economics beyond the initial effects.

Also, if you just want to brainstorm and list issues that need to be addressed and somehow whittled down into succinct quotes...THAT'D BE GREAT! I'm the kind of guy that doesn't mind letting people see how ignorant I am because I like being 'schooled'. Some may wince at that, but so what, you only live once.

Any and all pieces of freedom-loving thought that you wish to add, PLEASE do so. If you provide a complete quote, please include the author.

 Peace is not absence of conflict, it is the ability to handle conflict by peaceful means.
