Mi Cuñado has this quotation as his email signature, which is perhaps appropriate for a doctoral student in American Studies:
"The men who create power make an indispensable contribution to the Nation's greatness, but the men who question power make a contribution just as indispensable, especially when that questioning is disinterested, for they determine whether we use power or power uses us."
-- JFK, in an October 1963 speech at Amherst
(He sent me an article about a Ron Paul rally in World of Warcraft, and when I saw his updated signature, I immediately remembered that though the nation will celebrate it next Monday, today is the actual birthday of MLK, Jr. ...)
