[Quote No.50759] Need Area: Property > General
"...The Bill of Rights in the United States Constitution recognizes no distinction between property rights and other human rights. The ban against unreasonable search and seizure covers 'persons, houses, papers, and effects,' without discrimination. No person may, without due process of law, be deprived of 'life, liberty or property'; all are equally inviolable. The right to trial by jury is assured in criminal and civil cases alike. Excessive bail, excessive fines, and cruel and unusual punishments are grouped in a single prohibition. The Founding Fathers realized that a man or woman without property rights - without the right to the product of his own labor - is not a free man. These constitutional rights all have two characteristics in common. First, they apply equally to all persons. Second, they are, without exception, guarantees of freedom or immunity from governmental interference. They are not assertions of claims against others, individually or collectively. They merely say, in effect, that there are certain human liberties, including some pertaining to property, which are essential to free citizens and upon which the State shall not infringe. Now what about the so-called human rights that are represented as superior to property rights? What about the 'right' to a job, the 'right' to a standard of living, the 'right' to a minimum wage or a maximum work week, the right to a 'fair' price, the 'right' to bargain collectively, the 'right' to security against the adversities and hazards of life, such as old age and disability? The framers of the [U.S] Constitution would have been astonished to hear these things spoken of as rights. They are not immunities from governmental compulsion; on the contrary, they are demands for new forms of governmental compulsion. They are not claims to the product of one's own labor; they are, in some if not in most cases, claims to the products of other people’s labor. These 'human rights' are indeed different from property rights, for they rest on a denial of the basic concept of property rights. They are not freedoms or immunities assured to all persons alike. They are special privileges conferred upon some persons at the expense of others. The real distinction is not between property rights and human rights, but between equality of protection from governmental compulsion on the one hand and demands for the exercise of such compulsion for the benefit of favored groups on the other." - Paul L. Poirot
'Freeman' Editor, 1956–1987

"[Private Property:] Now what I contend is that my body is my own, at least I have always so regarded it. If I do harm through my experimenting with it, it is I who suffers, not the state." - Mark Twain

"[Personal liberty and private property rights:] To live his life in his own way, to call his house his castle, to enjoy the fruits of his own labour, to educate his children as his conscience directs, to save for their prosperity after his death --- these are wishes deeply ingrained in civilised man. Their realization is almost as necessary to our virtues as to our happiness. From their total frustration disastrous results both moral and psychological might follow." - C. S. Lewis
(1898-1963), British novelist. Source: Willing Slaves of the Welfare State, first published in The Observer on July 20, 1958.

"Listing What You Have: Internalize the attitude that regardless of how many things you do not have, you can still be happy [and grateful] if you keep your focus on what you do have. Make a list of possessions, talents, and good qualities you have and whenever you catch yourself becoming obsessed with something you lack, review your list!" - Rabbi Zelig Pliskin

"E]very Man has a Property in his own Person. This no Body has any Right to but himself. The Labour of his Body, and the Work of his Hands, we may say, are properly his. The great and chief end therefore, of Mens uniting into Commonwealths, and putting themselves under Government, is the Preservation of their [private] Property." - John Locke

"Be Thankful... - Be thankful...for this sink of dirty dishes; we have plenty of food to eat. Be thankful...for this pile of dirty, stinky laundry; we have plenty of nice clothes to wear. Be thankful...for those unmade beds; they were so warm and comfortable last night. I know that many have no bed. Be thankful...for this bathroom, complete with all the splattered mirrors, soggy, grimy towels and dirty lavatory; they are so convenient. Be thankful...for this finger-smudged refrigerator that needs defrosting so badly; It has served us faithfully for many years. It is full of cold drinks and enough leftovers for two or three meals. Be thankful...for this oven that absolutely must be cleaned today. It has baked so many things over the years. Be thankful...for that tall grass that needs mowing, the lawn that needs raking; we all enjoy the yard. Be thankful...for even that slamming screen door. My kids are healthy and able to run and play. All these chores awaiting me says our family is very lucky. I shall do them cheerfully and I shall do them gratefully!" - Unknown

[Quote No.52038] Need Area: Property > General
"[A story - with a message about not letting your possessions possess you.] - The Monkey's Trap - An interesting system has been used for capturing monkeys in the jungles of Africa. The goal is to take the monkeys alive and unharmed for shipment to zoos of America. In an extremely humane way, the captors use heavy bottles, with long narrow necks, into which they deposit a handful of sweet-smelling nuts. The bottles are dropped on the jungle floor, and the captors return the next morning to find a monkey trapped next to each bottle. How is it accomplished? The monkey, attracted by the aromatic scent of the nuts, comes to investigate the bottle, the nuts, and is trapped. The monkey can't take its hand out of the bottle as long it's holding the nuts, but it is unwilling to open its hand and let them go. The bottle is too heavy to carry away, so the monkey is trapped." - Eric Butterworth

[Quote No.52253] Need Area: Property > General
"[A true story - with a message about not judging a book by its cover, the contents by the appearance, the substance by the style, especially regarding wealth as wealthy people, who have truly healthy self-esteem, are notoriously 'humble' and financially 'careful'!] - The Little Dwarf - I was sixteen years old when I completed my Army basic training at Fort Gordon, Georgia, and decided to take my leave in Jacksonville, Florida, where I had been raised in a orphanage, before being sent to Fort Wainwright, located in Fairbanks Alaska. As I arrived at the Trailways bus station, I noted the many prostitutes and bums standing around on the street, which was not unusual to me. Some of them I had seen hundreds of times because I myself had lived on these same streets for several years before being placed into the Army by juvenile a court order. I guess I came back to the streets of Jacksonville to show everyone living on the street that I had finally become somebody. I threw my duffle bag over my shoulder and started walking towards Forsythe Street. Since I had no family, I decided to see if I could find someone that I knew from the times when I had lived on the street. I continued to walk to Forsythe. About that time several sailors walking behind me started making joke about my uniform. I quickly turned into a coffee shop and ordered a soda. After I was sure that they had gone, I decided to go back outside and tell these burley looking navy guys just where to get off. But to my surprise, I must have scared them off because they were nowhere to be found. I continued to walk down towards town and decided to stop in at a Army/Navy surplus store. I emerged about a half an hour later with almost every medal known to man-kind, not to mention my white spats and my white pistol-belt. I was one sharp looking dude. I finally reached Forsythe Street. I was walking by the Florida Theatre when I noticed those same three navy guys giving this dwarf guy, on a mechanics board. They had pushed him off the side walk and were laughing at him. As I passed, I could see that the little dwarf had no legs and his hands did not have many fingers and what was there was calloused from pushing himself around by his hands. I had seen this little man many times before, when I lived on the street, but I had never spoken to him because he looked too scary to me. I did not have enough nerve to say anything to the sailors so I just walked on by. The further I got from them the more I hurt inside. Finally I could not take it any more so I turned around and headed back towards them. The sailors were already crossing the street when I arrived. I noticed that they had jammed a single dollar bill in the little dwarf's mouth. I stood before him, looking down, and did not know what to say. I reached out into the street and got his mechanics chair and helped him get back onto it. I told him that I would buy him something to eat if he was hungry. He told me that he was, so I took out my wallet and handed him a twenty dollar bill. That was a lot of money for me because I only received $68.00 a month in army pay. As I turned to leave he yelled at me to stop, I turned around and he asked me if he could buy me dinner. We ordered 10 hamburgers a piece, and a fry. We talked for about an hour and I told him that I had been raised in an orphanage on the Southside. He told me that he also did not have any parents and that he had lived in an institution for about ten years. After we had eaten our meal I paid for his hamburgers so that he could save his $20.00. Then he asked me to wait while he went to get something important. About 30 minutes later he finally returned and handed me a large envelope and asked me not to open it until he was gone. I shook his deformed hand and then watched as the little man rolled himself, with his hands, back down the street towards the Florida Theatre. I folded the envelope and stuck it in my back pocket and left the restaurant. As I stepped out into the street there they were. These same three burley looking sailors, who immediately started shoving me around and finally pushed me against the glass window. Just about that time, several military policemen drove up and asked what was going on. The three sailors just walked away laughing. The MPs got out of their vehicle, walked around me several times and then one of them asked me, ‘Just what damn service are you in?’ ‘The French Foreign Legion’, yelled one of the three sailors. They laughed and continued walking off. I was handcuffed and taken to the Naval Air Station at Mayport where I was stripped of my metals, white pistol-belt and white spats, then locked in a small cell. Several hours later I was told that my leave had been cancelled and I was immediately taken to the Jacksonville International Airport and placed aboard a flight to Fort Wainwright, Alaska. I sat in my airline seat when I happened to remember the envelope that the little dwarf guy had given me. I opened it and found ten one-hundred-dollar bills, a note and a page from a magazine. The note read ‘I said I would take you out to dinner’. On the dirty old wrinkled magazine page was a large picture of a man and a woman, standing next to a fancy six horse drawn carriage, behind them stood a castle. The headline read ‘Scottish Royalty Dies, deformed infant found and placed into institution’. At the bottom of the magazine page was written, ‘A large steak would be nice. That's what I eat every day, my friend’." - Roger Dean Kiser, Sr.

"[Self-Defence and Martial Arts:] The defence of one’s self, justly called the primary law of nature, is not, nor can it be abrogated by any regulation of municipal law. This principle of defence is not confined merely to the person; it extends to the liberty and the property of a man: it is not confined merely to his own person; it extends to the persons of all those, to whom he bears a peculiar relation - of his wife, of his parent, of his child, of his master, of his servant: nay, it extends to the person of every one, who is in danger; perhaps, to the liberty of every one, whose liberty is unjustly and forcibly attacked. It becomes humanity as well as justice." - James Wilson

"[Here are the thirteen virtues that Benjamin Franklin set for himself throughout his life, in his own words, plus his added commentary, as he defined them in 1741 and wrote them in his autobiography for the edification and emulation of his children and those who read his autobiography:] --- Temperance. Eat not to dullness; drink not to elevation. --- Silence. Speak not but what may benefit others or yourself; avoid trifling conversation. --- Order. Let all your things have their places; let each part of your business have its time! --- Resolution. Resolve to perform what you ought; perform without fail what you resolve. --- Frugality. Make no expense but to do good to others or yourself; i.e., waste nothing. --- Industry. Lose no time; be always employ'd in something useful; cut off all unnecessary actions. --- Sincerity. Use no hurtful deceit; think innocently and justly, and, if you speak, speak accordingly. --- Justice. Wrong none by doing injuries, or omitting the benefits that are your duty. --- Moderation. Avoid extreams; forbear resenting injuries so much as you think they deserve. --- Cleanliness. Tolerate no uncleanliness in body, cloaths, or habitation! --- Tranquillity. Be not disturbed at trifles, or at accidents common or unavoidable. --- Chastity. Rarely use venery but for health or offspring, never to dulness, weakness, or the injury of your own or another's peace or reputation. --- Humility. Imitate Jesus and Socrates." - Ben Franklin
From his book, 'The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin'.

"[A true story - with a message about greed and possessiveness:-] - 'Greed-Selfishness' - In Africa they have a special way of capturing monkeys. These wary little animals are very fond of rice. In order to capture them, local farmers put some rice inside a hollow coconut shell, into which they have cut a hole just large enough for the monkey's hand. Half a dozen traps like this are left lying around in the center of the village. But each one is attached by a string to a nearby house. A family of monkeys comes up, attracted by the smell of rice. Each slips its hand into a shell to get a handful of rice. But with its hand full, it is unable to remove it. The hunters then approach and easily gather in their prey. If the monkey would only let go of the rice, it would be able to get away from the trap that had been set for it. But it likes rice too much to give it up - even at the risk of its own freedom and life." - Unknown

[Quote No.56044] Need Area: Property > General
"Private property rights are central to the free society. The most fundamental private property right is the right of each person to own himself – his mind, his body, his peaceful actions, and the fruits of his efforts either on his own or in interaction with others. The opposite of owning yourself is slavery [where the individual does not have an equal legal right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness and private property]. Under a slave system some individuals assert the right to own and control the actions of others under the threat or use of force. The slave lives and works for and obeys the commands of another human being with violence the ultimate instrument of control." - Richard Ebeling

[Quote No.58087] Need Area: Property > General
"In order to succeed in the world people do their upmost to appear successful. [But remember real successes have learned to be good judges of character, competence and lifestyle. They have seen this trick many, many times before. Therefore they will be polite but privately sceptical until it's proven that the contents really are as good as the wrapping - that substance indeed matches appearance! If that isn't the case imagine their reaction to your attempt to be dishonest and a fraud and to make a fool of them. Never forget people, especially successful people admire honesty and living within their means.]" - François de La Rochefoucauld

[Quote No.58131] Need Area: Property > General
"[Private property, including the ownership of the 'self', is the basis of individual responsibility and free market capitalism. Property cannot be owned by individuals according to the Communist ideology. Property can be owned by individuals but not controlled under fascist and socialist political ideologies.] Under fascism, citizens retain the responsibilities of owning property, without freedom to act and without any of the advantages of ownership. Under socialism, government officials acquire all the advantages of ownership, without any of the responsibilities, since they do not hold title to the property, but merely the right to use it -- at least until the next purge. In either case, the government officials hold the economic, political and legal power of life or death over the citizens." - Ayn Rand
(1905-1982), philosopher and author. Source: 'The Fascist New Frontier', The Ayn Rand Column, p.98.

"[Daily regular exercise doesn't have to involve going to an expensive gym and getting the help of personal trainers. Nor do you need to work hard to afford the gym membership and 'keeping up with the Jones' and all of their latest labour saving devices around home and work.] Inconvenience yourself: ditch the remote, the garage door opener, the leaf-blower; buy a bike, broom, rake, and snow shovel!" - Dan Buettner

[Quote No.59496] Need Area: Property > General
"[Communal property is the basis of communism:-] The experience that was had in ... the taking away of private property, and the possession of it in community, by a commonwealth ... was found to breed much confusion and discontent; and retard much employment which would have been to the general benefit.... For the young men that were most able and fit for labor and service objected that they should spend their time and strength to work for other men's wives and children, without any recompense.... The strong man or the resourceful man had no more share of food, clothes, etc., than the weak man who was not able to do a quarter the other could; this was thought injustice. The aged and graver men, who were ranked and equalized in labor, food, clothes, etc., with the meaner and younger ones, thought it some indignity and disrespect to them." - William Bradford
(circa 1590 - 1657), American colonist, helped found the Plymouth Colony, signatory to the Mayflower Compact, served as Plymouth Colony Governor, 1623. Source: 'Bradford's History of Plymouth Plantation, 1606-1646'.
