"Some choices aren’t really choices [...] In my experience, most people are willing to make immense sacrifices to keep their children safe and happy.

"You are about to be told one more time that you are America's most valuable natural resource. Have you seen what they do to valuable natural resources?! Have you seen a strip mine? Have you seen a clear cut in the forest? Have you seen a polluted river? Don't ever let them call you a valuable natural resource!" -- Utah Phillips
