-Abraham Lincoln

-Daniel Webster

"Starvation is the highest form of fulfillment."

"To steal from a child is to invest in the future."
-Allen Dulles

"We must burn down all vestiges of the past to build a brighter future."
-Frances Perkins

"Protest is the surest path to progress."
-Patrick Henry

"Revolution is the highest form of coexistence."
-Immanuel Kant

"Only through violent revolution will we ever truly know peace."
-Nicholas Biddle

"Only by plucking out the eyes of our enemies will we ever gain sight."
