 “War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things; the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. A man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight; nothing he cares about more than his own personal safety; is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better persons than himself.”

 

– John Stuart Mill

They’ll swing back to the belief that they can make people… better. And I do not hold to that. So no more runnin’. I aim to misbehave.” – Capt. Malcolm Reynolds

I ran across these two quotes on the internet the other day.  I like both of them and would love it if someone could tell me who originated both quotes.

‘Those who beat their swords into plowshares will be plowing for those who didn’t.’

and

Freedom isn’t a prize you pull out of a cereal box.
