5 Security Quotes From Famous Influential People

Security comes under various methods these days, depending on the budget and preferences of everyone. If in the past times security only resumed to guardians, these days you can choose between the human race and the robots. It sounds a bit sci-fi, but it is actually true. Surveillance security cameras evolved so much, that they may start recording only when they detect motion and send you the videos on your laptop or mobile phone immediately. It is a robotic system that may also require the human attention. Such a system won't really protect your home, unless very advanced, like the smoke systems for example. So that is when the human force steps in to protect your home or business.

If you ever wondered how these techniques were developed, well, engineers are the brains behind them. However, the measure and needs were developed by the thoughts and precognition of specialists. Mostly. Because people who lived maybe hundreds of years ago and who are now dead, for some reason came up with some security quotes that they would never expect to become so popular years after they die. Security quotes are at the base of many development thoughts and engineering understanding and they are meant to inspire individuals and motivate them to push harder, whether it comes to security or life in general. Let's see some of the top security quotes that I found...

“Uncertainty is the only certainty there is, and knowing how to live with insecurity is the only security.”

— John Allen Paulos

The mathematician John Allen Paulos came out with this famous quote of wisdom. Although it mostly came out as a mathematics definition, it definitely has a piece of truth when it comes to security as well. There wouldn't exist any security measures in the world if insecurity and danger wouldn't cause that. Just like you can't define good without referring to bad. These days, his words are common mottoes for philosophy institutions and online such materials. The first part of his quote however is part of many newspaper titles about the last years wars.

“Those who desire to give up freedom in order to gain security will not have, nor do they deserve, either one.”

— Benjamin Franklin

There is definitely something to understand from this American. His whole speeches were full of inspiration for those who followed them. A security quote that initially came out as a freedom one. Although they were related to those who were willing to give up the American fight in order to stay safe, Benjamin Franklin's words inspired and motivated the entire American nation in its fight for freedom. Words like these are able to determine the future of a country. The United States of America are now known as the lands of freedom and it was possible only to such great quotes.

"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.”

— Helen Keller

On a philosophical note, Helen Keller said that in 1957. She was was a blind and deaf American social activist and writer. You would never expect such words from a person with such huge problems. It is hard to understand how someone who cannot see or hear can get so far in society. However, these words would never come out from a healthy individual either. Only someone whose life is a real adventure can understand the real meaning of it and security. Security is a superstition indeed. No matter how far you go with it, you never know what the future has in store for you. Although Helen Keller died in 1968, her words remained to inspire the new generations of people in taking the real challenge of a life on.

“Learned institutions ought to be favorite objects with every free people. They throw that light over the public mind which is the best security against crafty and dangerous encroachments on the public liberty.”

— James Madison

The 4th United States of America president, James Madison, seemed to understand the process of security measures about two centuries back. It is a clear statement that security comes with education. People need to be educated and understand how to actually deal with the danger. Statistics say that about 41 percent of the robberies in the United States are directed to shops or businesses that don't have a security system, or at least not a functional one. No one believes such things would happen to them, until they actually get there.

"There is only one security, and when you've lost that security, you've lost everything you've got. And that is the security of confidence in yourself; to be, to create, to make any position you want to make for yourself. And when you lose that confidence, you've lost the only security you can have.”

— L. Ron Hubbard

An American sci-fi writer, novelist and founder of Scientology, L. Ron Hubbard, once said that. Security can be seen as the inner power of every individual. It may sound like it's inspired from the Bible, but it's a fact that without will and ambition, you cannot get anywhere. Success doesn't come to you, but you have to achieve it. And it's not an easy task at all.

Security quotes are sometimes the basics of security measures.

No matter who came up with reference quotations, they were determined by a particular action and due to them various systems became available on the market. There is a reason in every security quote. Due to its importance, they remained as reference words over the years and are still being used as mottoes.
