My favorite William Shakespeare quotes

Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player, that struts and frets his hour upon the stage, and then is heard no more; it is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

The quality of mercy is not strain'd,
It droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven
Upon the place beneath. It is twice blest:
It blesseth him that gives and him that takes.

The evil that men do lives after them; the good is oft interred with their bones.

Israel is the fifth smallest country in the Middle East. Ranked by population, they are the 11th smallest country ( Egypt is 1st with about 79 million while Israel has about 8 million) in the Middle East. Yet this tiny country is hated by so many. Why?
Oh, I know why, the Palestinian situation. Wait, that can’t be it. There are far more countries in the world oppressing a greater amount of people and you don’t seem to here much about them. It must be because of all of their oil. No, they don’t export oil. It must be because they go all over the world causing riots and stirring up civil unrest. No, I haven’t seen that either.
I’ve been trying to figure this out for years. I am by no means saying that I think Israel commits no wrongs or has not committed any civil rights violations. It’s just that people’s hatred of them is so intense. There's a word for people who judge an entire race but it eludes me right now. Unfortunately, most people form an opinion and then try to find facts to support it, as apposed to looking at all the facts and then drawing a conclusion.
If the Arabs put down their weapons today, there would be no more violence. If the Jews put down their weapons today, there would be no more Israel. - PM Netanyahu

Governments will rise and fall. The institutions of man will dissipate upon the very breathe of the God that they so readily mock. All earthly things will wither and die, and then dwindle down to the dust from whence they were sprung - Don Gordon

Abortion is one of the greatest threat that has ever befallen our great nation. I say that because it is a threat that comes from within. Do we hold human existence in such low regard that we callously toss it away? If there is any seed of doubt as to whether life begins at the time of conception, then why do we continue to annihilate it? If I told you that 1 out of every 100,000 bottles of water contains a deadly poison, is there anyone out there who would continue to drink bottled water? I doubt it. Science cannot prove when life begins. That being the case, WHY do we go on with this deadly game of convenience?
I hear it every day. What if I am the victim of rape? What about overpopulation? What about all the children that are neglected? What about all the children that are abused? What about all the children that are starving? Who are YOU to decide whether a child lives or dies based upon your standard of life? It appalls me that in a country that seems so concerned with life, oh I forgot, it’s my own life I’m concerned about. What inconveniences me is an abomination, and to hell with everyone else.
Wouldn’t the proper solution be to remedy these things that are harming our children? What if the whole world stood up and said ENOUGH! We will not tolerate anyone abusing our children. Everyone agrees that it is a horrible problem, but what do they do. Nothing. I’m sorry, I forgot, they abort them. I wouldn’t want to have to walk down the street and help one of these poor children. Too much trouble.
When a society sacrifices the most weak and innocent amongst them, what does that tell you? You would rather kill an innocent child than to risk that they may not grow up as you would have seen fit? To use that same rational, we must go and murder every child who has ever been abused or neglected. Will yours be the hands that pull the switch?
Of all the sick and twisted things that abound in our society, you choose to attack that which is the embodiment of innocence? We pay taxes to defend murders and rapist. We pay taxes to murder children. This is the reality.
