  4. Trevanian from the novel "Shibumi":

    It was not their irritating assumption of equality that annoyed Nicholai so much as their cultural confusions. The Americans seemed to confuse standard of living with quality of life, equal opportunity with institutionalized mediocrity, bravery with courage, machismo with manhood, liberty with freedom, wordiness with articulation, fun with pleasure - in short, all of the misconceptions common to those who assume that justice implies equality for all, rather than equality for equals.

  5. Rick Scott:

    There is no reason we should be providing state-of-the-art military training to people who wish us harm, and most importantly, there is no reason to risk the safety and security of our American men and women in uniform. If not for the bravery displayed by the military personnel on the ground and local law enforcement, today's tragedy could have been much worse. We must be vigilant against those who wish our country and our people harm.
