    Nice quote. Here’s another in a similar spirit:
    “It does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen to set brush fires in people’s minds.”
    ~Samuel Adams

    Hi Rob. The S. Adams quote is a favourite in my household. 🙂 In fact, I recently tried to trace its provenance (ie. the primary source as opposed to BrainyQuote) and found an interesting discussion here: http://boston1775.blogspot.com/2009/05/samuel-adams-and-brush-fires-in-peoples.html
    Regardless of who came up with it, it’s a good one!
