Here come more quotations from smarter people than I. It’s also an easy way to keep this blog alive. If you want my latest take, there’s one in the pipeline titled “We’ll Have a Gay Old Time.”
1. Darwin sounds more Christian than many Christians:
“If the misery of the poor be caused not by the laws of nature,
but by our institutions, great is our sin.”
— Charles Darwin
2. Idiocracy Again:
“There are only two things that are infinite. The universe and human stupidity. And I’m not so sure about the universe.”
– Albert Einstein
3. Homeland Security?
“Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.”
– Benjamin Franklin, Historical Review of Pennsylvania, 1759
4. Freedom Isn’t Free:
“I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it.”
– Thomas Jefferson, to Archibald Stuart, 1791
5. Freedom of Speech:
“I may not agree with what you say, but I will defend to my death your right to say it.”
6. Government sucks, but:
“It has been said that democracy is the worst form of government except all the others that have been tried.”
– Sir Winston Churchill
Extra Point: But Wait, There’s More!
These are the takes from wiser people than I. In a few days or maybe tomorrow, “We’ll Have a Gay Old Time” will hit the electronic version of print. No trees or animals will be harmed.
