Thoughts from Wise People




‘For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed . But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.”

                                                                                            —John 3:20-21






‘But if we are to be told by a foreign Power...... what we shall do, and what we shall not do, we have Independence yet to seek, and have contended hitherto for very little.”                                            —George Washington







“He who would make his own liberty secure must guard even his enemy from oppression; for if he violates this duty he establishes a precedent that will reach to himself.”

                                                                                  —Thomas Paine






“My confidence is that there will for a long time be virtue and good sense enough in our countrymen to correct abuses.”

                                                             —Thomas Jefferson






“Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are inevitably ruined.”

—Patrick Henry






‘The struggle is always between the individual and his sacred right to express himself and...... the power structure that seeks conformity, suppression and obedience.”

                                                   —Justice William 0. Douglas






“The real freedom of any individual can always be measured by the amount of responsibility which he must assume for his own welfare and security.”

                                                                                             —Robert Welch






“It is proof of a base and low mind for one to wish to think with the masses or majority , merely because the majority is the majority. Truth does not change because it is, or is not, believed by a majority of the people.”

                                                                        —Giordano Bruno





“There is in all of us a strong disposition to believe that anything lawful is also legitimate. This belief is so widespread that many persons have erroneously held that things are ‘just’ because the law makes them so.”

                                                                                            —Frederic Bastiat

 


 

 

 

“I just wonder if it ain’t just cowardice

instead of generosity that makes us give most of our tips.”

 —Will Rogers

 


 

 

 

“Those who never retract their opinions

 love themselves more than they love the truth.”

 —Joseph Joubert

 


 

 

 

“Remember: One lie does not cost you one truth: but the truth.”

—Christian Freidrich Hebbel

 


 

 

 

“Everything that deceives may be said to enchant.” —Plato

 


 

 

 

“You cannot do a kindness too soon,

for you never know how soon it will be too late.”

—Ralph Waldo Emerson

 


 

 

 

    “YOU HANG AN APE AND A POLITICAL ANCESTRY OVER ME, AND YOU WILL SEE ME TAKING IT INTO THE SUPREME COURT, TO PROVE THAT THE APE PART IS O.K.,

       BUT THAT THE POLITICAL END OF IT IS BASE LIBEL.”

—WILL ROGERS

 


 

 

 

“THE HUMAN MIND IS NOT CAPABLE OF GRASPING THE UNIVERSE. We are like a very little child entering a huge library. The walls are covered to the ceilings with books in many different tongues. The child knows that someone must have written these books. It does not know who or how. It does not understand the languages in which they are written. But the child notes a definite plan in the arrangement of the books — a mysterious order which it does not comprehend, but only dimly suspects.”

                                                                                  —Albert Einstein
