I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do. I am free, no matter what rules surround me. If I find them tolerable, I tolerate them; if I find them too obnoxious, I break them. I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do.

You can have peace. Or you can have freedom. Don't ever count on having both at once.

Yield to temptation. It may not pass your way again.

It is a truism that almost any sect, cult, or religion will legislate its creed into law if it acquires the political power to do so.

May you live as long as you wish and love as long as you live.

Be wary of strong drink. It can make you shoot at tax collectors... and miss.

Don't ever become a pessimist... a pessimist is correct oftener than an optimist, but an optimist has more fun, and neither can stop the march of events.

One man's theology is another man's belly laugh.

Never insult anyone by accident.
