August 27

THE hero is not fed on sweets,
Daily his own heart he eats;
Chambers of the great are jails,
And head winds right for royal sails.
Ralph Waldo Emerson


ONLY he deserves freedom who has day by day to fight for it.
Johann W. von Goethe


TALK not to me of scandal and offence. Need breaks through stone walls, and recks not of scandal. It is my duty to spare weak consciences as far as it may be done without hazard of my soul. Where not I must take counsel for my soul, though half or the whole world should be scandalized thereby.
Martin Luther


REBELLION to tyrants is obedience to God.
John Bradshaw


IF necessity breeds no heroism, the people are not worth their own redemption.
Henrik Ibsen
