28[edit]

2004 : They serve so that we don't have to. They offer to give up their lives so that we can be free. It is, remarkably, their gift to us. And all they ask for in return is that we never send them into harm's way unless it is absolutely necessary. Will they ever trust us again? ~ Michael Moore

2005 : Now you see, Lone Starr, that evil will always triumph, because good is dumb. ~ "Dark Helmet" in Spaceballs by Mel Brooks

One of the best-known works of w:Mel Brooks, born on June 28th

"All I really want is to provide a hard-working man in the blouse business with a method of expressing himself; if he likes a tune, he can whistle it, and it will make his life happier." Richard Rodgers, born on June 28th

We don't have a Rodgers page yet (hardly surprising); this quotation is the only Rodgers in my Simpson's (number 9614).

To renounce liberty is to renounce being a man, to surrender the rights of humanity and even its duties. For him who renounces everything no indemnity is possible. Such a renunciation is incompatible with man's nature; to remove all liberty from his will is to remove all morality from his acts. ~ Jean-Jacques Rousseau born on June 28th
