And so the first question that the Levite asked was, “If I stop to help this man, what will happen to me?” But then the Good Samaritan came by. And he reversed the question: “If I do not stop to help this man, what will happen to him?” ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.

  30. “…I believe it is woman’s right to have a voice in all the laws and regulations by which she is to be governed; whether in Churchor State; and that the present arrangements of society, on these points, are a violation of human rights, a rank usurpation of power, a violent seizure and confiscation of what is sacredly and inalienably hers–and thus inflicting upon woman outrageous wrongs, working mischief incalculable in the social circle, and in its influence on the world producing only evil, and that continually.” ~ Angelina Grimke

  46. “It is unfortunately none too well understood that, just as the State has no money of its own, so it has no power of its own. All the power it has is what society gives it, plus what it confiscates from time to time on one pretext or another, there is no other source from which State power can be drawn. Therefore every assumption of State power, whether by gift or seizure leaves society with so much less power; there is never, nor can be, any strengthening of State power without a corresponding and roughly equivalent depletion of social power.” ~ Albert J. Nock
  47. “If we do not learn to regard a war, and the separate campaigns of which it is composed, as a chain of linked engagements each leading to the next, but instead succumb to the idea that the capture of certain geographical points or the seizure of undefended provinces are of value in themselves, we are liable to regard them as windfall profits.” ~ Carl von Clausewitz

  50. “Disturbingly, the First Amendment, along with the Fourth Amendment – protecting against unreasonable searches and seizures, and requiring warrants – have been the major casualties of the shift in government policy in the last two decades. Unfortunately, I think that the biggest consequences of this tragedy won’t be clear until it is far, far too late.” ~ Chelsea Manning
  51. “There are just a host of problems born by the electronic age. Things we couldn’t even conceive of. I was amused by the analogy that Justice Scalia made in a case about a GPS tracker so you don’t know that’s being done to your car, is that a violation of your right to protection against unreasonable searches and seizures. So Justice Scalia imagines a constable clinging to the bottom of a carriage as it went on its way, so there was some notion that this similar: there is an official eye that’s on you, but you don’t know about it. Yes, there are all kinds of challenges.” ~ Ruth Bader Ginsburg

  53. “If an epileptic seizure is focused in a particular sweet spot in the temporal lobe, a person won´t have motor seizures, but instead something more subtle. The effect is something like a cognitive seizure, marked by changes of personality, hyperreligiosity (an obsession with religion and feelings of religious certainity), hypergraphia (extensive writing on a subject, usually about religion), the false sense of an external presence, and, often, the hearing voices that are attributed to a god. Some fraction of history´s prophets, martyrs, and leaders appear to have had temporal lobe epilepsy.” ~ David Eagleman

  58. “National Health? Socialized pension funds? State-controlled television? Search and seizure laws? Forfeiture laws? If we’re not living in the Soviet Union of the United States we certainly have returned to 1776 and ‘taxation without representation.'” ~ Michael Moriarty , Search and seizure quotes
  59. “The seizure of power by armed force, the settlement of the issue by war, is the central task and the highest form of revolution. This Marxist-Leninist principle of revolution holds well universally, for China and for all other countries.” ~ Mao Zedong

  65. “Listing rights generally involves enumerating things you may do without interference (the right to free speech) or may not be done to you without your permission (illegal search and seizure, loud boy-band music in public places). They are protections, not gifts of material goods. Material goods and services must be taken from others, or provided by their labor, so if you believe you have an absolute right to them, and others don’t choose to provide it to you, you then have a ‘right’ to steal from them. But what about their far more fundamental right not to be robbed?” ~ Cliff Asness
