“Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” ― Jesus Christ, Matthew 11:28-30

“In the total expanse of human life there is not a single square inch of which the Christ, who alone is sovereign,does not declare,’That is mine!’” ―Abraham Kuyper

“What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him? For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour. Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet: All sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of the field; The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, and whatsoever passeth through the paths of the seas. O LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!” ― King David, Psalm 8: 4-9

“Hamlet: What a piece of work is a man, how noble in reason, how infinite in faculties, in form and moving how express and admirable, in action how like an angel, in apprehension how like a god! the beauty of the world, the paragon of animals—and yet, to me, what is this quintessence of dust? Man delights not me—nor woman neither, though by your smiling you seem to say so.
Rosencrantz:
My lord, there was no such stuff in my thoughts.” ― William Shakespeare, Hamlet, Act 2, Scene 2.

“Socialist governments traditionally do make a financial mess. They always run out of other people’s money.” ― Margaret Thatcher

“I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them. …I will not attempt to discover whether legislation is “needed” before I have first determined whether it is constitutionally permissible. And if I should later be attacked for neglecting my constituents’ “interests,” I shall reply that I was informed that their main interest is liberty and that in that cause I am doing the very best I can.” ― Barry Goldwater

“Washington is Hollywood for the ugly. Hollywood is Washington for the stupid.” — Rush Limbaugh

NOTE: For my next favorite quote you are not allowed to read unless while doing so you sing it out loud, sing it softly or in your head and in your heart.

♫”We the people,
In order to form a more perfect union,
Establish justice, insure domestic tranquility,
Provide for the common defense,
Promote the general welfare and
Secure the blessings of liberty
To ourselves and our posterity
Do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”♫

If you don’t know the tune, first of all, shame on you if you are older than 35 and grew up in the US or Canada and do not know this song. 🙂 Anyway, go here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ewwv7RyMxAk&feature=related

If you must read the above quote without singing it then at least be sure and change the first line to read: “We the People of the United States,”
