Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art . . . it has no survival value; rather is one of those things that
value to survival.

Founding Fathers Quotes
Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom of Europe. The supreme power
in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force
superior to any band of regular troops that can be, on any pretence, raised in the United States.
Noah Webster, An Examination into the Leading Principles of the Federal Constitution, 1787
Immature poets imitate; mature poets steal.
T. S. Eliot
