This is my favorite. This occured when General (Retired) Colin Powell
was Secretary of State.

When asked by the Archbishop of Canterbury if US plans for Iraq
were just an example of empire building by George Bush. Secretary
Powell replied: Over the years, the United States has sent many of its fine young men and women into great peril to fight for freedom beyond our borders. The only amount of land we have ever asked for in return is enough to bury those that did not return.

And Val, I think I also really like The Honorable Judge Young!

Thanks, ladies, for sharing.

A few more great quotations for the impending New Year:

"Be always at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let each New Year find you a better man" ~Benjamin Franklin


"New Year's Resolution: To tolerate fools more gladly, provided this does not encourage them to take up more of my time" ~James Agate


"Drop the last year into the silent limbo of the past. Let it go, for it was imperfect, and thank God that it can go. " ~Brooks Atkinson


"We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year's Day" ~Edith Lovejoy Pierce


"Year's end is neither an end nor a beginning but a going on, with all the wisdom that experience can instill in us" ~Hal Borland


One resolution I have made, and try always to keep, is this: To rise above the little things" ~John Burroughs


Every man should be born again on the first day of January. Start with a fresh page. Take up one hole more in the buckle if necessary, or let down one, according to circumstances; but on the first of January let every man gird himself once more, with his face to the front, and take no interest in the things that were and are past. ~Henry Ward Beecher


Glory to God in highest heaven,
Who unto man His Son hath given;
While angels sing with tender mirth,
A glad new year to all the earth.
~Martin Luther

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Giving money and power to government is like giving whiskey and car keys to teenage boys.
