I hate quotations. Tell me what you know.- Ralph Waldo Emerson

In the Anglo-saxon world, it is often heard from pro-gun activists as a proclamation of belief in the natural right to keep and bear arms (as affirmed by the 2nd Amendment of the United States Constitution, the English Bill of Rights 1689 and so on) and as a challenge to those supporting stricter gun control laws (or what they fear would be a government seizure of firearms). It began to appear on such forums as www.thefiringline.com and on pro-RKBA web sites in the late 1990's and early 2000's. The idea for the phrase in its modern usage may have come from the novel "Gates of Fire" by Steven Pressfield.

I will tell you what I know:

Quotation ... A writer expresses himself in words that have been used before because they give his meaning better than he can give it himself, or because they are beautiful or witty, or because he expects them to touch a cord of association in his reader, or because he wishes to show that he is learned and well read. Quotations due to the last motive are invariably ill-advised; the discerning reader detects it and is contemptuous; the undiscerning is perhaps impressed, but even then is at the same time repelled, pretentious quotations being the surest road to tedium.
Henry W. Fowler (1858 - 1933), A Dictionary of Modern English Usage (1926)

The wisdom of the wise and the experience of the ages is preserved into perpetuity by a nation's proverbs, fables, folk sayings and quotations.
William Feather (1908 - 1976)

Libertarian author L. Neil Smith has some of the best quotes I've ever read. From anyone. Including Spooner, Jefferson, Paine, Locke, or even Plato.

If you're not a little bit uncomfortable with your position, it isn't radical enough. How can you be too principled? Take the most extreme position you can -- you're claiming territory you won't have to fight for later, mostly against your "allies".

Know when to give up a lost cause. Anyone who needs to be persuaded to be free, doesn't deserve to be.

Every man, woman, and responsible child has an unalienable individual, civil, Constitutional, and human right to obtain, own, and carry, openly or concealed, any weapon -- rifle, shotgun, handgun, machinegun, anything -- any time, any place, without asking anyone's permission.
