Birthday Twins?

Richard Nixon and Joan Baez share the birthday of January 9.

"Let us begin by committing ourselves to the truth--to see it like it is, and tell it like it is--to find the truth, to speak the truth, and to live the truth."
--Richard Nixon

"So you are lean and mean and resourceful, and you continue to walk on the edge of the precipice because over the years you have become fascinated by how close you can walk without losing your balance."
--Richard Nixon, (quoted in the Washington Post, 9 August 1979)

You don't get to choose how you're going to die. Or when. You can decide how you're going to live now.
--Joan Baez

The only thing that's been a worse flop than the organization of non-violence has been the organization of violence.
--Joan Baez
