A lie can travel half way around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes.
If you have no critics you'll likely have no success.
The trust of the innocent is the liar's most useful tool.
The truth is found when men are free to pursue it.
Love truth, but pardon error.
Rats and roaches live by competition under the laws of supply and demand; it is the privilege of human beings to live under the laws of justice and mercy.

Peace is not something you wish for; it is something you make, something you are, something you do, and something you give away.
I'm for truth, no matter who tells it. I'm for justice, no matter who it is for or against. I'm a human being, first and foremost, and as such I'm for whoever and whatever benefits humanity as a whole.
I quote others only to better express myself.
Peace begins with a smile..
