Quotations of the day

“I actually went to (Majority Leader) Eric Cantor a couple days ago and I proposed this. I said, ‘You’re going to think this is crazy but I, as a conservative, would be willing to vote for a debt ceiling for six weeks.’” — Rep. Raul Labrador, R-Idaho, who favors a plan that would raise the debt limit without reopening the government.


“I’m never going to give up.” — Malala Yousafzai, the 16-year-old Pakistani girl whose advocacy for education made her the target of a Taliban assassination attempt, on repeated death threats made against her by the militant group.


“Conquering of fear is one of life’s greatest pleasures and it can be done a lot of different places.” — Astronaut Scott Carpenter, the second American to orbit the Earth, who died at the age of 88.
