    "Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."

    Thanks, Cato, I'm sharing that one with my children. And it reminds me of one of my favorites:

    A ship in harbor is safe - but that is not what ships are for. ~John A. Shedd, Salt from My Attic

    So many great ones from Thomas Paine...

    Lead, follow, or get out of the way.

    That government is best which governs least.

    The strength and power of despotism consists wholly in the fear of resistance.

    These are the times that try men's souls.

    Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom must, like men, undergo the fatigue of supporting it.

    We have it in our power to begin the world over again.


    And, of course, my favorite:


    The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of his country; but he that stands it NOW deserves the love and thanks of man and woman.

    "Lead by example."

    A few of you may remember that phrase.

    And one of my all-time favorites:

    "Be prepared."

    Can't ever stress that enough!!!

    "You don't want the truth because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties you want me on that wall, you need me on that wall. We use words like honor, code, loyalty. We use then as the backbone of a life trying to defend something. You use them as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom I provide and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather you just said "thank you," and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest that you pick up a weapon and stand a post. Either way, I don't give a damn what you think you are entitled to."

    I play a card game called Magic The Gathering. And each creature card has some kind of saying or quote or something at the very bottom. Recently I saw this one while getting my butt kicked in a game.

    "That history showed that the way tyrants had eliminated a militia consisting of all the ablebodied men was not by banning the militia but simply by taking away the people’s arms, enabling a select militia or standing army to suppress political opponents."

    Psalm 144:1 - Praise be to the LORD my Rock, who trains my hands for war, my fingers for battle.

    "The very fame of our strength and readiness would be a means of discouraging our enemies; for 'tis a wise and true saying, that one sword often keeps another in the scabbard. The way to secure peace is to be prepared for war. They that are on their guard, and appear ready to receive their adversaries, are in much less danger of being attacked than the supine, secure and negligent."
    -Benjamin Franklin


    "In ten years nobody will remember the details of caliber, stance, or tactics. They will only remember who lived.
    "

    One of my favorites, "Do not attend a gun fight with a handgun, the caliber of which does not start with anything smaller than "4"."

    While the cost to live as a free man is sometimes overwhelming, the cost of dying and not breathing free air is a sum too great to pay.

    Great quote Cato, I always tell my wife (and will teach my children) that I don't want to look back on my life and say "I could've, I should've, I would've...".

    Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with the yoke of bondage." Galatians 5:1

    "Our safety, our liberty, depends upon preserving the Constitution of the United States as our Fathers made it inviolate. The people of the United States are the rightful masters of both Congress and the Courts, not to overthrow the Constitution, but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution." -- Abraham Lincoln

    "Why should judicial precedent bind the nation if the Constitution itself does not?" -- Mark Levin

    Certainly there is no hunting like the hunting of man and those who have hunted armed men long enough and liked it, never really care for anything else thereafter.
