Edward R. Murrow

I saw the destiny of Nations on TV. I didn't want to miss it so I didn't go to sleep. It really was exciting to watch the whole world turn to rust. But I wouldn't be human, made out of this dust. If I thought that I knew , that the way to get across to you, was this high and winding stair, I'd be there." -~Arlo Guthrie from Stairs on Mystic Journey from 1996

Arlo Guthrie

Look within;
There is no fire like greed,
No crime like hatred,
No sorrow like separation,
No sickness like hunger of heart,
And no joy like the joy of freedom.
Health, contentment and trust
Are the greatest possessions,
And freedom is the greatest joy.
Look within.

Voltaire

François-Marie Arouet (French: [fʁ�'̃.swa ma.ʁi aʁ.wɛ]; 21 November 1694 - 30 May 1778), known by his nom de plume Voltaire (/voʊlˈtɛər/; French: [v�"l.tɛːʁ]), was a French Enlightenment writer, historian, and philosopher famous for his wit, his attacks on the established Catholic Church, and his advocacy of freedom of religion, freedom of expression, and separation of church and state. Voltaire was a versatile writer, producing works in almost every literary form, including plays, poems, novels, essays, and historical and scientific works. He wrote more than 20,000 letters and more than 2,000 books and pamphlets. He was an outspoken advocate, despite the risk this placed him in under the strict censorship laws of the time. As a satirical polemicist, he frequently made use of his works to criticize intolerance, religious dogma, and the French institutions of his day.
