I have so many favorite quotes...I don't know where to begin.  Here are a few to get the thread rolling...

 

"The question isn't who is going to let me; it's who is going to stop me." - Ayn Rand

"There's no way to rule innocent men. The only power government has is the power to crack down on criminals. When there aren't enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws." - Ayn Rand

Do not follow where the path may lead.  Go, instead, where there is no path and leave a  trail.  - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Some of the world's greatest feats were accomplished by people not smart enough to know they were impossible. - Doug Larson

It is better to be hated for what you are than to be loved for something you are not. - Andre Gide
