LIFE IS A GIFT, FREEDOM A RESPONSIBILITY

“There are not enough jails, not enough policemen, not enough courts to enforce a law not supported by the people.”                                                                                             Hubert H. Humphrey

“I often wonder whether we do not rest our hopes too much upon the constitutions, upon law and upon courts.  These are false hopes, believe me, they are false hopes. Liberty lies in the hearts of men and women; when it dies there, no constitution, no law, no court can save it. While it lies there, it needs no constitution, no laws, no court to save it.”                     Judge Leonard Hand, U.S. Court of Appeals

“Good people do not need laws to tell them how to act responsibly.  While bad people will find a way around the laws.”                                                                                             Plato (429-347 B.C.).

“You cannot buy the revolution.  You cannot make the revolution.  You can only be the revolution.  It is in your spirit, or it is no where.”                                                              Ursula K. Le Guin, The Dispossed
