    Absolutely speaking, Do unto others as you would that they should do unto you is by no means a golden rule, but the best of current silver. An honest man would have but little occasion for it. It is golden not to have any rule at all in such a case.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Whatever our creed or belief, we all know that there is no way back, that we must fight our way through.
    Johan Huizinga (1872–1945)

    The English never draw a line without blurring it.
    Winston Churchill (1874–1965)
