2 Kalki 17:18, 11 February 2009 (UTC) 2 InvisibleSun 23:09, 11 February 2009 (UTC) He who knows the truth and does not speak it is a miserable coward. - Julius StreicherWhy would you judge the person? See, what you should be doing is judging the quotes, not the people who say them...this isn't opinionpedia, it's qotd...whether or not I like the people saying the quotes is beyond the point here. But, for the record, I don't judge any man as a coward or a fool. In fact, I don't believe in that word "coward". Anyone who can actually formulate a well-established thought such as this one is great to me. And I let that be my only guiding principle. If words are power, then judge words. - Zarbon 05:21, 27 February 2009 (UTC)
