Thoughts


More From Dwight D. Eisenhower

Here in America we are descended in blood and in spirit from revolutionists and rebels - men and women who dare to dissent from accepted doctrine. As their heirs, may we never confuse honest dissent with disloyal subversion.

The truly educated man is that rare individual who can separate reality from illusion.

From George Washington

The time is now near at hand which must probably determine whether Americans are to be freemen or slaves; whether they are to have any property they can call their own; whether their houses and farms are to be pillaged and destroyed, and themselves consigned to a state of wretchedness from which no human efforts will deliver them. The fate of unborn millions will now depend, under God, on the courage and conduct of this army. Our cruel and unrelenting enemy leaves us only the choice of brave resistance, or the most abject submission. We have, therefore, to resolve to conquer or die.

From Kurt Vonnegut

A sane person to an insane society must appear insane.

From Grant Babcock

Why not, then, let in the beneficial immigrants, and keep the harmful ones out? The thing proponents of this view are missing is this: Why would you ever trust a government, any government, to make that determination? Why would you think a government had an interest in making that determination correctly, or the means to do so?

More From Voltaire

It is dangerous to be right in matters where established men are wrong.

From Clarence Darrow

The world is suffering more today from the good people who want to mind other mens business than it is from the bad people who are willing to let everybody look after their own individual affairs.

More From Cousin Lucky

After U. S. President John F. Kennedy was killed there was only one national figure that spoke the truth to my young mind. Those were the words of Malcolm X who stated " The Chickens Have Finally Come Home To Roost " which implied that the United States government had killed yet another countrys leader; in this case its own!!

Many young Americans have never again trusted anything our government has been involved with ever since.

From Dwight D. Eisenhower

If all that Americans want is security, they can go to prison. They will have enough to eat, a bed and a roof over their heads. But if an American wants to preserve his dignity and his equality as a human being, he must not bow his neck to any dictatorial government.

From Edward R. Murrow

There is a great and perhaps decisive battle to be fought against ignorance, intolerance and indifference. This weapon of television could be useful. Stonewall Jackson, who knew something about the use of weapons, is reported to have said, "When war comes, you must draw the sword and throw away the scabbard." The trouble with television is that it is rusting in the scabbard during a battle for survival.

From David Boaz

As long as Americans want to use drugs, and are willing to defy the law and pay high prices to do so, drug busts are futile. Other profit-seeking smugglers and dealers will always be ready to step in and take the place of those arrested.

From Voltaire

I have never made but one prayer to God, a very short one: "O Lord make my enemies ridiculous." And God granted it.

From Gregg Popovich

"This man in the Oval Office is a soulless coward who thinks that he can only become large by belittling others. This has of course been a common practice of his, but to do it in this manner-and to lie about how previous presidents responded to the deaths of soldiers-is as low as it gets. We have a pathological liar in the White House, unfit intellectually, emotionally, and psychologically to hold this office, and the whole world knows it, especially those around him every day. The people who work with this president should be ashamed, because they know better than anyone just how unfit he is, and yet they choose to do nothing about it. This is their shame most of all."

From Saul Bellow

A great deal of intelligence can be invested in ignorance when the need for illusion is deep.
