Hero-worship in the sense of expressing our unbound admiration is one thing. To obey the hero is a totally different kind of worship. There is nothing wrong in the former while the latter is no doubt a most pernicious thing. The former is man’s respect for which is noble and of which the great men are only an embodiment. The latter is the serf’s fealty to his lord. The former is consistent with respect, but the latter is a sign of debasement. The former does not take away one’s intelligence to think and independence to act. The latter makes one perfect fool. The former involves no disaster to the state. The latter is a source of positive danger to it.More [07/04/2007 12:07:00]

Ted Fisher: What's he trying to prove? I once saw one of those things sitting behind the wheel of a car in D.C. trying to drive down Independence Avenue. It didn't make me want to be its friend.

Unspontaneity is of their essence. In these rites I discover that something is approaching me here that I did not produce myself, that I am entering into something greater than myself, which ultimately derives from divine revelation. This is why the Christian East calls the liturgy the ‘Divine Liturgy’, expressing thereby the liturgy’s independence from human controlMore [11/21/2007 12:11:00]

[the President briefs the pilots before the final attack]
President Thomas Whitmore: Good morning.
[PA doesn't work. Turns it on]
President Thomas Whitmore: Good morning. In less than an hour, aircraft from here will join others from around the world. And you will be launching the largest aerial battle in the history of mankind. "Mankind." That word should have new meaning for all of us today. We can't be consumed by our petty differences anymore. We will be united in our common interests. Perhaps it's fate that today is the Fourth of July, and you will once again be fighting for our freedom... Not from tyranny, oppression, or persecution... but from annihilation. We are fighting for our right to live. To exist. And should we win the day, the Fourth of July will no longer be known as an American holiday, but as the day the world declared in one voice: "We will not go quietly into the night!" We will not vanish without a fight! We're going to live on! We're going to survive! Today we celebrate our Independence Day!

Maynard: [looking at his plate of lobster with little enthusiasm] I ain't saying this lobster is for the birds, but I'd rather be eating my own corned beef.
Father Higgins: Lobster? I think I'd like some of that, is it good?
Maynard: Fine, Father.

John Adams:
[quotes from memory] 'And we solemly declare that we will preserve our liberties, being with one mind resolved to die free men rather than to live slaves.' Thomas Jefferson "On the Necessity of Taking Up Arms," 1775. Magnificent! Why, you write ten times better than any man in Congress. Including me. For a man of only thirty-three years, you have a happy talent of composition and a remarkable felicity of expression. Now then sir: will you be a patriot? Or a lover?



Thomas Jefferson:
A lover.

Scott Carpenter:
No, Coach, I didn't know that.



Baseball Coach:
They tried to win their independence through violence over the years, but they never quite succeeded. Don't swing too early, wait for the ball. Finally a man by the name of Mahatma Gandhi convinced the people that they could win their independence without using violence. A lot of people thought he was crazy, but it turned out he was right. When somebody asked him why he was so sure that nonviolence would work, he said that the idea of an eye for an eye only made the whole world blind.

Why even the Declaration of Independence only guaranties life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. It doesn't say anything about fair. Doesn't even say you have the right to be happy. Just to pursue it.

We all used to try so hard to fit in. We wanted to look exactly alike, do all the same things, practically be the same person, but when we weren't looking that all changed. The tree house was supposed to bring us more independence, but what the summer actually brought was independence from each other.

Narrator:
It is the year 0079 of the Universal Century. A half-century has passed since Earth began moving its burgeoning population into gigantic orbiting space colonies. A new home for mankind, where people are born and raised. And die. 9 months ago, the cluster of colonies furthest from the Earth, called Side 3, proclaimed itself the Principality of Zeon and launched a war of independence against the Earth Federation. Initial fighting lasted over one month and saw both sides lose half their respective populations. People were horrified by the indescribable atrocities that had been committed in the name of independence. Eight months had passed since the rebellion began. They were at a stalemate.

Col. Harry Burwell:
This is not for the independence of one or two colonies, but for the independence of one nation.



Capt. Wilkins:
Tell me Colonel what nation is that?



Mr. Howard:
An American nation!



Capt. Wilkins:
There is no such nation and to speak of one is treason.



Mr. Howard:
We ARE citizens of an American nation! And our rights are being threatened by a tyrant three thousand miles away!



Benjamin Martin:
Tell me, Mr Howard, why should I trade one tyrant three thousand miles away for three thousand tyrants one mile away? An elected legeslator can trample a man's rights as easily as a King can.



Col. Harry Burwell:
Benjamin Martin, I understand you used to be a patriot.



Benjamin Martin:
If you mean Patriot then am I angry about taxation without representation well yes I am. Should the American colonies govern themselves independantly? I believe that they can, and that they should. But if you are asking me, am I willing to go to war with England? Then the answer is most definately NO!

A strong body makes the mind strong. As to the species of exercises, I advise the gun. While this gives moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise and independence to the mind.
