Thomas Paine Didn't Really Say That...

In a previous posting, I included a quote that had been passed along to me, which was attributed to Thomas Paine: "Dissent is the highest form of patriotism." I have since discovered that he never said that. So, let me give you two other quotes that are very appropriate for all of you who are heading up to Lansing today.

"It does not take a majority to prevail ... but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men." — Samuel Adams

"Never give in. Never give in. Never, never, never, never--in nothing, great or small, large or petty--never give in, except to convictions of honor and good sense." - Winston Churchill
