"The nation which indulges towards another an habitual hatred, or an habitual fondness, is in some degree a slave. It is a slave to its animosity or to its affection, either of which is sufficient to lead it astray from its duty and its interest." —George Washington

"The simple step of a courageous individual is not to take part in the lie. One word of truth outweighs the world." —Alexander Solzhenitsyn

"Never tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do and they will surprise you with their ingenuity." —General George S. Patton

"This [Dubai Ports World] transaction needs a long, careful look. It doesn't need stone-throwing from opportunists who would be better advised to check their own glass houses. And it doesn't need bully-pulpit demagoguery." —Andrew McCarthy

"Other justifications for the sale appear to be reasonable—not least that Dubai Ports World is reputedly competent at managing ports—and might be convincing if only someone bearing the title President of the United States would articulate those reasons in a spirit of respect rather than as a dismissive parent managing an impudent child." —Kathleen Parker

"The attitude of people associating guns with nothing but crime, that is what has to be changed. I grew up at a time when people were not afraid of people with firearms." —Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia

"Our problem is not a temporary explosion of spending either because of a war or hurricanes or disasters. It's our entitlements which are draining our economy and which everybody, particularly the liberals, will not index for income." —Charles Krauthammer

"Say what you like about the Islamic world, but they show tremendous initiative and energy and inventiveness, at least when it comes to threatening death to the infidels every 48 hours for one perceived offense or another. If only it could be channeled into, say, a small software company, what an economy they'd have." —Mark Steyn

"The main reason that our bipartisan tax code is slightly larger than Maureen Dowd's therapy notes is that every congressman in the country is trying to amend it to spare his special friends from having to play on a level field." —Mac Johnson

For some reason the Left has become convinced Cheney will leave soon, if they concentrate hard enough. It's the modern-day version of the hippies levitating the Pentagon." —James Lileks

Jay Leno: Vice President Dick Cheney said today that he's not sure if he'll ever go hunting again. Well, if he does decide to go hunting again, good luck finding someone to go with. ... The word from Fox News is that Prince Abdullah of Bahrain has thrown Michael Jackson out of his palace. Michael Jackson is now homeless in Bahrain. That's pretty dangerous isn't it, for a cartoon character to be walking around in a Muslim county. That's not good right now. ... Bill Clinton is looking for 25 interns to work at his library. Now what could go wrong here?
