A Quote by Sir Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill on acceptance, extremism, government, risk, and slavery

It cannot in the opinion of His Majesty's Government be classified as slavery in the extreme acceptance of the word without some risk of terminological inexactitude.

A Quote by William A. Niskanen on accidents, church, control, dependence, expectation, good, government, jobs, liberty, life, losing, nations, people, risk, security, television, and tragedy

Our government has become too responsive to trivial or ephemeral concerns, often at the expense of more important concerns or an erosion of our liberty, and it has made policy priorities more dependent on where TV journalists happen to point their cameras. . . . As a nation we have lost our sense of tragedy, a recognition that bad things happen to good people. A nation that expects the government to prevent churches from burning, to control the price of bread or gasoline, to secure every job, and to find some villain for every dramatic accident, risks an even larger loss of life and liberty.

A Quote by U.S. Supreme Court on action, belief, debate, decisions, goals, government, heart, idealism, ideas, information, laws, lies, life, persuasion, politics, principles, rest, risk, and speech

At the heart of the First Amendment lies the principle that each person should decide for him or herself the ideas and beliefs deserving of expression, consideration, and adherence. Our political system and cultural life rest upon this ideal. Government action that stifles speech on account of its message, or that requires the utterance of a particular message favored by the Government, contravenes this essential right. Laws of this sort pose the inherent risk that the Government seeks not to advance a legitimate regulatory goal, but to suppress unpopular ideas or information or manipulate the public debate through coercion rather than persuasion.

A Quote by unknown on life, risk, and skill

We take these risks not to escape life, but to prevent life from escaping us. We rarely say how we feel until it's too late. When scaling a wall, the will is more important than the skill.
