    Default Relevant Volume 4 Quotes

    I have been reading (or re-reading) Joel Rosenberg’s Guardians of the Flames series lately. In so doing, I have come across a few famous quotes that seem to apply marvellously to the predicament that Alpha Flight finds themselves in, in Volume 4…



    “The deadliest enemies of nations are not their foreign foes; they always dwell within their borders. And from these internal enemies civilization is always in need of being saved. The nation blessed above all nations is she in whom the civic genius of the people does the saving day by day, by acts without external picturesqueness; by speaking, writing, voting reasonably; by smiting corruption swiftly, by good temper between parties; by the people knowing true men when they see them, and preferring them as leaders to rabid partisans or empty quacks.”
    - Williams James




    “The wise man in the storm prays God, not for safety from danger, but for deliverance from fear. It is the storm within which endangers him, not the storm without.”
    - Ralph Waldo Emerson




    “Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun.”
    - Mao Tse-tung




    So, what do you all think? Do any of these quotes help to explain the circumstances and situation that Mac and friends find themselves in?
