Another quote debate. Simply put: whoever puts up the best quotes wins. You can post one quote per round, and there are four rounds. Good luck to my opponent!
I'll start off with one from Anne O'Hare McCormick:

"Today the real test of power is not capacity to make war but capacity to prevent it."
saamanthagrl

Con

Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.
