Sometimes I think the surest sign that intelligent life exists elsewhere in the universe is that none of it has tried to contact us.

 - Calvin (from Calvin & Hobbes)

One from a John Wayne movie......

 

"I won't be wronged, I won't be insulted, and I won't be laid a hand on. I don't do these things to other people, and I require the same from them." — J.B. Books in "The Shootist" (1976)

"The United States of America have exhibited, perhaps, the first example of governments erected on the simple principles of nature; and if men are now sufficiently enlightened to disabuse themselves of artifice, imposture, hypocrisy, and superstition, they will consider this event as an era in their history. Although the detail of the formation of the American governments is at present little known or regarded either in Europe or in America, it may hereafter become an object of curiosity. It will never be pretended that any persons employed in that service had interviews with the gods, or were in any degree under the influence of Heaven, more than those at work upon ships or houses, or laboring in merchandise or agriculture; it will forever be acknowledged that these governments were contrived merely by the use of reason and the senses."
~John Adams, A Defence of the Constitutions of Government of the United States of America, 1787-1788

It is better to keep your mouth closed and let people think you are a fool, than to open it and remove all doubt.      .......Mark Twain.
