Quips and Quotations

Our country, right or wrong. When right to be kept right, when wrong to be put right.

--former Union Army Major Carl Schurz, in a speech to Congress in 1872.

Democracy is not something you believe in or a place to hang your hat, but it's something you do. You participate. If you stop doing that, democracy crumbles.

--Abbie Hoffman
