quotes to start the week off right

From the delightful A-Word-A-Day:

It is better to have loafed and lost than never to have loafed at all.
– James Thurber, writer and cartoonist (1894-1961)

He who dares not offend cannot be honest.
– Thomas Paine, philosopher and writer (1737-1809)
Thanks to the Writer's Almanac:
Any idiot can face a crisis; it is this day-to-day living that wears you out.
– Anton Chekhov

He that would make his own liberty secure, must guard even his enemy from oppression; for if he violates this duty, he establishes a precedent that will reach to himself.
– Thomas Paine
