quotes
When a person places the proper value on freedom, there is nothing under the sun that he will not do to acquire that freedom. Whenever you hear a man saying he wants freedom, but in the next breath he is going to tell you what he won't do to get it, or what he doesn't believe in doing in order to get it, he doesn't believe in freedom. A man who believes in freedom will do anything under the sun to acquire... or preserve his freedom.

- Malcolm X
One of the prevailing sources of misery and crime is in the generally accepted assumption, that because things have been wrong a long time, it is impossible they will ever be right.

- Ruskin, John
The way to combat noxious ideas is with other ideas. The way to combat falsehoods is with truth.

- William O. Douglas
The odious and disgusting aristocracy of wealth is built upon the ruins of all that is good in chivalry or republicanism; and luxury is the forerunner of a barbarism scarcely capable of cure.

- Shelley, Percy Bysshe
A man who has committed a mistake and doesn't correct it, is committing another mistake.

- Confucius
These capitalists generally act harmoniously and in concert, to fleece the people.

- Lincoln, Abraham
The conventional view serves to protect us from the painful job of thinking.

- John Kenneth Galbraith
The ideology of this America wants to establish reassurance through Imitation. But profit defeats ideology, because the consumers want to be thrilled not only by the guarantee of the Good but also by the shudder of the Bad.

- Eco, Umberto
The middle of the road is where the white line is -- and that's the worst place to drive.

- Frost, Robert
Men cease to interest us when we find their limitations.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo
From the oyster to the eagle, from the swine to the tiger, all animals are to be found in men and each of them exists in some man, sometimes several at the time. Animals are nothing but the portrayal of our virtues and vices made manifest to our eyes, the visible reflections of our souls. God displays them to us to give us food for thought.

- Hugo, Victor
The principle of majority rule is the mildest form in which the force of numbers can be exercised. It is a pacific substitute for civil war in which the opposing armies are counted and the victory is awarded to the larger before any blood is shed. Except in the sacred tests of democracy and in the incantations of the orators, we hardly take the trouble to pretend that the rule of the majority is not at bottom a rule of force.

- Lippmann, Walter
A woman uses her intelligence to find reasons to support her intuition.

- Chesterton, Gilbert K.
We waste time looking for the perfect lover, instead of creating the perfect love.

- Tom Robbins
He is a hard man who is only just, and a sad one who is only wise.

- Voltaire
I can see the time when every city will have one.

- An American mayor's reaction to the news of the invention of the telephone
At the beginning of every act of faith, there is often a seed of fear. For great acts of faith are seldom born out of calm calculation.

- Lucado, Max L.
They must change who would be constant in happiness and wisdom.

- Confucius
I am like a doctor. I have written a prescription to help the patient. If the patient doesn't want all the pills I've recommended, that's up to him. But I must warn that next time I will have to come as a surgeon with a knife.

- Cuellar, Javier Perez De
Effective communication is 20% what you know and 80% how you feel about what you know.

- Rohn, Jim
