More evil, and other quotes

The posting of quotes by human authors does not constitute agreement with either the quotes or their sources. (I try to confirm the sources that I give, but may miss on occasion; please verify when possible.)

"There are two things that bother us about death – its certainty and its uncertainty." -- Allen Reed

"Thank God for medical breakthroughs that save little lives. But in our world, an ethical breakthrough would save even more." -- John Stonestreet

"Since well before 1787, liberty has been understood as freedom from government action, not entitlement to government benefits." -- Clarence Thomas

"Our Constitution—like the Declaration of Independence before it—was predicated on a simple truth: One’s liberty, not to mention one’s dignity, was something to be shielded from—not provided by—the State." -- Clarence Thomas

"Watch your words. Keep them warm and sweet. You may have to eat them." -- Adrian Rogers
