↑ You may not agree with or respect a person's opinion, but you have to respect that they have the right to have that opinion.
^ Of course. I would never argue with that.
This is also true:

My home is "clean enough to be healthy, but dirty enough to be happy."
Carl was Jung at heart?

Cannot swords be turned to plowshares? Can we and all nations not live in peace? In our obsession with antagonisms of the moment, we often forget how much unites all the members of humanity. Perhaps we need some outside, universal threat to make us recognize this common bond. I occasionally think how quickly our differences worldwide would vanish if we were facing an alien threat from outside this world. And yet, I ask you, is not an alien force already among us? What could be more alien to the universal aspirations of our peoples than war and the threat of war?' — Ronald Reagan

Here is a favorite of mine.
"Practical men who believe themselves to be quite exempt from any intellectual influence, are usually the slaves of some defunct economist. Madmen in authority, who hear voices in the air, are distilling their frenzy from some academic scribbler of a few years back. (Lord Keynes)
"Men are qualified for civil liberty in exact proportion to their
disposition to put moral chains upon their own appetites, — in
proportion as their love to justice is above their rapacity, — in
proportion as their soundness and sobriety of understanding is above
their vanity and presumption, — in proportion as they are more disposed
to listen to the counsels of the wise and good, in preference to the
flattery of knaves. Society cannot exist, unless a controlling power
upon will and appetite be placed somewhere; and the less of it there is
within, the more there must be without. It is ordained in the eternal
constitution of things, that men of intemperate minds cannot be free. Their passions forge their fetters."
