"So you think that money is the root of all evil?" said Francisco d'Anconia. "Have you ever asked what is the root of money? Money is a tool of exchange, which can't exist unless there are goods produced and men able to produce them. Money is the material shape of the principle that men who wish to deal with one another must deal by trade and give value for value. Money is not the tool of the moochers, who claim your product by tears, or of the looters, who take it from you by force. Money is made possible only by the men who produce. Is this what you consider evil?

"Ain't no sense worrying: If you have no control over something, ain't no sense worrying about it - you have no control over it anyway. If you do have control, why worry? ...So either way, there ain't no sense worrying."

-Mickey Rivers

"You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today And then the one day you find ten years have got behind you No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun And you run and you run to catch up with the sun, but it's sinking And racing around to come up behind you again The sun is the same in the relative way, but you're older And shorter of breath and one day closer to death Every year is getting shorter, never seem to find the time Plans that either come to naught or half a page of scribbled lines"

- Roger Waters

- Ronald Reagan

"These are mine. I am earning my own living, as every honest man must. I refuse to accept as guilt the fact of my own existence and the fact that I must work in order to support it. I refuse to accept as guilt the fact that I am able to do it and to do it well. I refuse to accept as guilt the fact that I am able to do it better than most people - the fact that my work is of greater value than the work of my neighbors and that more men are willing to pay I refuse to apologize for my ability - I refuse to apologize for my success - I refuse to apologize for my money. If this is evil, make the most of it. If this is what the public finds harmful to its interests, let the public destroy me. This is my code - and I will accept no other."

- Henry Rearden, Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand

"It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena..."

- Theodore Roosevelt

Politicians create laws under the guise of "helping people" in order to ensure that they have a dependent group of people to contibue to vote for them. One of the cruelest things that one can do is to take perfectly capable people and brainwash them to believe that they are not capable.

- Judge Andrew Napolitano

To avoid criticism, say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.

- Albert Einstein

- Ronald Reagan

Should it not be obvious to everyone that not a single government controlled economic policy accomplishes its intended purpose?

- Milton Friedman

- Ronald Reagan

"There's nothing of any importance in life - except how well you do your work. Nothing. Only that. Whatever else you are, will come from that. It's the only measure of human value."

- Ayn Rand (Francisco d'Anconia, Atlas Shrugged)

"Money is the barometer of a society's virtue. When you see that trading is done, not by consent, but by compulsion--when you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing--when you see that money is flowing to those who deal, not in goods, but in favors--when you see that men get richer by graft and by pull than by work, and your laws don't protect you against them, but protect them against you--when you see corruption being rewarded and honesty becoming a self-sacrifice--you may know that your society is doomed."

- Ayn Rand (Francisco d'Anconia, Atlas Shrugged)

"Don't talk about what you have done or what you are going to do."

- Thomas Jefferson

"Since there is no such thing as the right of some men to vote away the rights of others, and no such thing as the right of the government to seize the property of some men for the unearned benefit of others--the advocates and supporters of the welfare state are morally guilty of robbing their opponents, and the fact that the robbery is legalized makes it morally worse, not better."

- Ayn Rand
