Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence.  Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb.  Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts.  Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.  The slogan, ‘Press On’ has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.       -- Calvin Coolidge


Devotional Thought:  Fear and faith both attract, and are opposite sides of the same coin.  They are intimate bedfellows.  Fear is believing that what you cannot see will eventually happen.  Faith is believing that what you cannot see will eventually happen.  Faith attracts the positive, fear attracts the negative.  -- Ted Baccich

You have enemies?  Good.  That means you have stood up for something, sometime in your life.  -- Winston Churchill


Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.                               
-- Winston Churchill

Devotional Thought:
In this day and time, we seem to be living in a worldwide happiness cult.  Everybody has to be happy all the time, or they are not living a normal life.  Churches in particular seem to be that way.  Sorrow has the potential of being one of life's greatest teachers, producing some of life's greatest results.  -- Edwin Louis Cole

Want of foresight, unwillingness to act when action would be simple and effective, lack of clear thinking, confusion of counsel until the emergency comes, until self-preservation strikes its jarring gong - these are the features which constitute the endless repetition of history.    -- Winston Churchill

Word of Wit and Wisdom:
In his timeless essay, The Fate of Empires, Sir John Glubb noted that if mankind can learn anything from history it is this, that mankind has failed to learn anything from history.  The history of man is replete with circular and even comical mistakes.  Jesus analogized mankind with sheep, helpless dumb animals.  The endless repetition of history, as Churchill noted, can therefore be attributed at least in part, to sheepish stupidity and willful ignorance.  -- Multiple Sources

Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds.
-- Albert Einstein

Devotional Thought:  "If the world hates you, remember that it hated me first.  If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own.  As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world.  That is why the world hates you.  Remember the words I spoke to you ... If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. ... They will treat you this way because of my name, for they do not know the One who sent me."  -- John 15: 18-21       

 
Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.  We didn’t pass it on to our children in the bloodstream.  It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.   -- Ronald Reagan  

The nine most terrifying words in the English language are: "I'm from the government and I'm here to help."  -- Ronald Reagan

Devotional Thought:
Look at what's happening in the streets of our cities, look at what's happening to our families today.  Do you think that the decline of marriage and the moral disillusion of the family is a money problem?  Or do you think it's a problem that comes from putting the self first -- from deciding that there are no obligations that have to be respected and that at the end of the day, freedom is just another kind of empty licentiousness?  We know better and our Founders knew better and it's time that we get back to the truth.  They did not tell us that freedom would be an easy road.  They offered us a true vision of the future of America.  It was not a vision of licentious freedom and stupid self-indulgence.  It was a vision of freedom based upon the fear of God and the respect for law.  -- Alan Keys


"That government is best which governs least."

-- The quote can be found in Henry David Thoreau's essay entitled Civil Disobedience published in 1849. However the quote is often attributed to Thomas Jefferson, but there is no writing suggesting Jefferson actually said it.

Word of Wit and Wisdom: Government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem.  -- Ronald Reagan, Inaugural address, January 20, 1981


In civilized societies, if you are offended by a cartoon, you do not burn flags, take up guns and raid buildings, chant death to your enemies, or threaten suicide bombings.  You write a letter to the editor.  -- Michelle Malkin, Michellemalkin.com, February 1st, 2006

Word of Wit and Wisdom:
Of the four wars in my lifetime, none came about because the U.S. was too strong.  -- Ronald Reagan


Whenever I hear anyone arguing for slavery, I feel a strong impulse to see it tried on him personally.  -- Abraham Lincoln, speech to the 140th Indiana Regiment, March 17th, 1865 

Word of Wit and Wisdom:
I've noticed that everyone who is for abortion has already been born.          -- Ronald Reagan


I would remind you that extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice.  And let me remind you also that moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue.  
-- Barry Goldwater,
Acceptance Speech as the 1964 Republican Presidential candidate.

Word of Wit and Wisdom:
Those who seek absolute power, even though they seek it to do what they regard as good, are simply demanding the right to enforce their own version of heaven on earth. And let me remind you, they are the very ones who always create the most hellish tyrannies. Absolute power does corrupt, and those who seek it must be suspect and must be opposed. Their mistaken course stems from false notions of equality, ladies and gentlemen. Equality, rightly understood, as our founding fathers understood it, leads to liberty and to the emancipation of creative differences. Wrongly understood, as it has been so tragically in our time, it leads first to conformity and then to despotism.  -- Barry Goldwater, 1964 Acceptance Speech, Republican National Convention.

Republi
cans believe every day is the 4th of July; Democrats believe every day is April 15th.  -- Ronald Reagan

You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We will preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we will sentence them to take the first step into a thousand years of darkness. If we fail, at least let our children and our children's children say of us, we justified our brief moment here. We did all that could be done.

-- Ronald Reagan,
Referring to America and All Americans in his "A Time for Choosing" Speech.

Word of Wit and Wisdom: Great nations have a responsibility to lead, and we should always be cautious of those who would lower our profile, because they might just wind up lowering our flag. -- Ronald Reagan

The highest glory of the American Revolution was this: it connected in one indissoluble bond the principles of civil government with the principles of Christianity ... Is it not that, in the chain of human events, the birthday of the nation is indissolubly linked with the birthday of the Savior? That it forms a leading event in the progress of the Gospel dispensation? Is it not that the Declaration of Independence first organized the social compact on the foundation of the Redeemer's mission upon earth? That it laid the cornerstone of human government upon the first precepts of Christianity?

    -- John Quincy Adams

Word of Wit and Wisdom:  Always vote for principle, though you may vote alone, and you may cherish the sweetest reflection that your vote is never lost.  -- John Quincy Adams

The aim and final end of all music should be none other than the glory of God and the refreshment of the soul. If heed is not paid to this, it is not true music but a diabolical bawling and twanging. -- Johann Sebastian Bach

Word of Wit and Wisdom: Extraordinary how potent cheap music is. 
– Noel Coward





It can not be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religions, but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ. For this very reason peoples of other faiths have been afforded asylum, prosperity and freedom of worship here.

—Patrick Henry, March 23, 1775 at the Second Virginian Convention
given at St. John’s Church in Richmond, Virginia.

Word of Wit and Wisdom: The United States of America is the greatest country in the world and a gift from Jesus Christ. It was founded on HARD WORK and GODLY VALUES and it has been HIJACKED by Luciferian, blood-sucking PARASITES both from ABOVE and BELOW. It's time rip the leeches of off Lady Liberty...with an ice pick.  --Johnny Cirucci, American Patriot


Freedom!  No word was ever spoken that held out greater hope, demanded greater sacrifice, needed more to be nurtured, blessed more the giver,
cursed more its destroyer, or came closer to being God’s will on
earth.  And I think that’s worth fighting for.
-- Gen Omar Bradley


Word of Wit and Wisdom:  It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!  —Patrick Henry, March 23, 1775, St. John's Church, Richmond, Virginia


By removing the Bible from schools we would be wasting so much time and money in punishing criminals and so little pains to prevent crime. Take the Bible out of our schools and there would be an explosion in crime.

-- Benjamin Rush


Word of Wit and Wisdom:The philosophy of the school room in one generation will be the philosophy of government in the next.  -- Abraham Lincoln


Do not blame Caesar, blame the people of Rome who have so enthusiastically acclaimed and adored him and rejoiced in their loss of freedom and danced in his path and gave him triumphal processions. Blame the people who hail him when he speaks in the Forum of the ‘new, wonderful, good society’ which shall now be Rome’s, interpreted to mean: more money, more ease, more security, more living fatly at the expense of the industrious.

— Marcus Tullius Cicero


Word of Wit and Wisdom:
If mankind can learn anything from history, it is namely this, that mankind had failed to learn anything from history.  -- Sir John Glubb, The Fate of Empires.

More than a half century ago, while I was still a child, I recall hearing a number of older people offer the following explanation for the great disasters that had befallen Russia. ‘Men have forgotten God. That’s why all this has happened.’ Since then I have spent well neigh 50 years working on the history of our revolution …. If I were asked today to formulate as concisely as possible the main cause of the ruinous revolution that swallowed up some 60 million of our people, I could not put it more accurately than to repeat: "Men have forgotten God. That’s why all this has happened.

-- Alexander Solszhenitsyn

Word of Wit and Wisdom:
  The cruelty of atheism is hard to believe when man has no faith in the reward of good or the punishment of evil. There is no reason to be human. There is no restraint from the depths of evil which is in man. The Communist torturers often said, 'There is no God, no hereafter, no punishment for evil. We can do what we wish.' I have heard one torturer even say, 'I thank God, in whom I don't believe, that I have lived to this hour when I can express all the evil in my heart.' He expressed it in unbelievable brutality and torture inflicted on prisoners.  -- Pastor Richard Wurmbrand, Tortured for Christ

Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of patriotism, who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness, these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. The mere politician, equally with the pious man, ought to respect and to cherish them. A volume could not trace all their connections with private and public felicity. Let it simply be asked: Where is the security for property, for reputation, for life, if the sense of religious obligation desert the oaths which are the instruments of investigation in courts of justice? And let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion. Whatever may be conceded to the influence of refined education on minds of peculiar structure, reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle.

Tis substantially true, that virtue or morality is a necessary spring of popular government. The rule indeed extends with more or less force to every species of free Government. Who that is a sincere friend to it, can look with indifference upon attempts to shake the foundation of the fabric.

Observe good faith and justice towards all Nations. Cultivate peace and harmony with all. Religion and morality enjoin this conduct; and can it be that good policy does not equally enjoin it? It will be worthy of a free, enlightened, and, at no distant period, a great Nation, to give to mankind the magnanimous and too novel example of a People always guided by an exalted justice and benevolence. Who can doubt that in the course of time and things the fruits of such a plan would richly repay any temporary advantages wch. might be lost by a steady adherence to it? Can it be, that Providence has not connected the permanent felicity of a Nation with its virtue? The experiment, at least, is recommended by every sentiment which ennobles human Nature. Alas! is it rendered impossible by its vices?

-- President George Washington, Farewell Address, September 19, 1796
              
                                                                                                                                          The two enemies of the people are criminals and government, so let us tie the second down with the chains of the Constitution so the second will not become the legalized version of the first.
 
-- Thomas Jefferson

Word of Wit and Wisdom: As democracy is perfected, the office of the President represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day, the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be occupied by a downright fool and complete narcissistic moron.

-- H.L. Mencken (born 1880 - died 1956) journalist, satirist, critic, and Democrat.
