    the one I always like was some General (have been told, frequently but still manage to forget - age I guess) during the American Civil War (you know when the southern Gentlemen decided they didn't want to be Yankees anymore like it said in the constitution, so they left, like it said; but that's another story, proves something!)

    Anyway this here General was out riding one day with his staff checking out the enemy lines - his aide got a little frightened (understandable, it ain't to good to get your boss killed) and suggested that they get back a bit as the opposition had 'sharpshooters' out! To which our General replied "Nonsense they couldn't hit a barn door at this dist..................... Wicked I love it!!

    Old cynics rules: "Believe nothing that you hear, and only half of what you see."

    General Zapata: "It is better to die on your feet than live forever on your knees."

    Dolores Ibarruri (Pasionaria)(Spanish Basque Politician, Journalist and Orator):
    "It is better to be the widow of a hero than the wife of a coward."
    She also used Zapata's quotation.

    Mahatma Ghandi: “Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.” “Be the change you want to see in the world.” “I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.” “What do I think of Western civilisation? I think it would be a very good idea.” “Nonviolence is a weapon of the strong”

    "I feel I should announce that reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated (and I just know someone will steal that line in the future....)" Bergalia, copied by Mark Twain.

    "Whosoever controls the volume of money in any country is absolute master of all industry and commerce...and when you realize that the entire system is very easily controlled, one way or another, by a few powerful men at the top, you will not be told how periods of inflation and depression originate." …

    James Abram Garfield (19 November 1831 - 19 September 1881) was the 20th President of the United States (1881), and the second U.S. President to be assassinated. Within weeks of releasing this statement President Garfield was assassinated, after only six months and fifteen days in office.

    Yeah, but I think he was dead by then. She has a statue on the Clyde River Walkway, so she was obviously liked at the time.
