“If a law is unjust, a man is not only right to disobey it, he is obligated to do so.”
~ Thomas Jefferson
“This quotation has not been found in Thomas Jefferson’s papers. It has been suggested that it is a paraphrase of Jefferson’s statement in the Declaration of Independence, “…whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government…,” although such a paraphrase would seem to be taking some radical liberties with the original version. The quotation bears a much closer resemblance to Martin Luther King, Jr.’s comment in his famous letter from Birmingham Jail: “One has not only a legal but a moral responsibility to obey just laws. Conversely, one has a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws.”” (monticello.com)
Blind belief in authority is the greatest enemy of truth.
~ Albert Einstein
“Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; remember that what you now have was once among things you only hoped for.”
