"The easy confidence with which I know another man's religion is folly teaches me to suspect that my own is also." ~ Mark Twain.I saw that the State was half-witted, that it was timid as a lone woman with her silver spoons, and that it did not know its friends from its foes, and I lost all remaining respect for it, and pitied it."
--Henry David Thoreau
