Famous quotes containing the words security, mortgage and/or backed:

    The contention that a standing army and navy is the best security of peace is about as logical as the claim that the most peaceful citizen is he who goes about heavily armed. The experience of every-day life fully proves that the armed individual is invariably anxious to try his strength. The same is historically true of governments. Really peaceful countries do not waste life and energy in war preparations, with the result that peace is maintained.
    Emma Goldman (1869–1940)

    Loosened from the minor’s tether;
    Free to mortgage or to sell,
    Wild as wind, and light as feather
    Bid the slaves of thrift farewell.
    Samuel Johnson (1709–1784)

    It looked as if
    The shore was lucky in being backed by cliff,
    The cliff in being backed by continent;
    It looked as if a night of dark intent
    Was coming, and not only a night, an age.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
