There is no one else to break the solitude of a long cross-country flight. There is no one else to make decisions." - Richard Bach

"So many sins against the poor cry out to high heaven! One of the most deadly sins is to deprive the laborer of his hire. There is another: to instill in him paltry desires so compulsive that he is willing to sell his liberty and his honor to satisfy them.
