Never follow your passion, but always bring it with you.
    -- Mike Rowe
%
It is very much better sometimes to have a panic feeling beforehand, and
then be quite calm when things happen, than to be extremely calm
beforehand and to get into a panic when things happen.
    -- Winston Churchill
%
It is wonderful how well men can keep secrets they have never been told.
    -- Winston Churchill
%
The best evidence of the fairness of any settlement is the fact that it
fully satisfies neither party.
    -- Winston Churchill
%
All the greatest things are simple, and many can be expressed in a
single word: freedom; justice; honour; duty; mercy; hope.
    -- Winston Churchill
%
Never look down on anybody unless you're helping them up.
    -- Jesse Jackson
%
In politics, when you are in doubt what to do, do nothing... when you
are in doubt what to say, say what you really think.
    -- Winston Churchill
%
The best thing for the government to do is nothing, because whatever
they do will likely be insufficient and ineffective.
    -- Me
%
The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings. The
inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries.
    -- Winston Churchill
%
One can always consult a man and ask him "would you like your head cut
off tomorrow?" and after he has said "I would rather not," cut it off.
"Consultation" is a vague and elastic term.
    -- Winston Churchill

What has happened is the mask has become a symbol of compliance... When
you put it on, you are complying; and when you refuse to wear it, you
refuse to comply... That's what the mask has become in the United
States. Instead of making it something effective that could improve
society for years to come, we screwed the pooch at the beginning. We
made it a toxic conversation, we couldn't be bothered to answer people's
questions. Instead we labelled them as Trump supporters to shut them up,
