„Let me tell you what is coming. After the sacrifice of countless millions of treasure and hundreds of thousands of lives, you may win Southern independence if God be not against you, but I doubt it. I tell you that, while I believe with you in the doctrine of states rights, the North is determined to preserve this Union. They are not a fiery, impulsive people as you are, for they live in colder climates. But when they begin to move in a given direction, they move with the steady momentum and perseverance of a mighty avalanche; and what I fear is, they will overwhelm the South.“

—  Sam Houston, As quoted in Sam Houston (2004), by James Haley, University of Oklahoma Press, p. 397

„I live by the golden rule: Treat others as you'd want them to treat you. The religious right wants to tell people how to live.“

—  Jesse Ventura American politician and former professional wrestler 1951
Context: Organized religion is a sham and a crutch for weak-minded people who need strength in numbers. It tells people to go out and stick their noses in other people's business. I live by the golden rule: Treat others as you'd want them to treat you. The religious right wants to tell people how to live. Interview in Playboy (November 1999)
