Famous quotes containing the words protection, active and/or fire:

    The diversity in the faculties of men, from which the rights of property originate, is not less an insuperable obstacle to a uniformity of interests. The protection of these faculties is the first object of government.
    James Madison (1751–1836)

    I am grown old and my memory is not as active as it used to be. When I was younger I could remember anything, whether it had happened or not; but my faculties are decaying now, and soon I shall be so I cannot remember any but the things that never happened. It is sad to go to pieces like this, but we all have to do it.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)

    How the cold creeps as the fire dies at length
    How drifts are piled,
    Dooryard and road ungraded,
    Till even the comforting barn grows far away,
    And my heart owns a doubt
    Whether ‘tis in us to arise with day
    And save ourselves unaided.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
