Wise Words

Since I’m on the subject of great quotes, I came across this one some time ago. I think it contains advice that we should all take to heart:
Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will
deserve neither and lose both.
Have a guess who said this? I bet you're thinking it was some modern radical? It was non-other than that great and diverse American, Benjamin Franklin (1706 – 1790).

Maybe we should display this on gigantic bill boards instead of promoting the ‘war’ on ‘terror’. He also said:
If you would not be forgotten, as soon as you are dead and rotten,
either write things worth reading, or do things worth the writing.
