Quotes from intelligent people, and me


"Common sense is something that everyone needs, few have, and none think they lack"--Benjamin Franklin
 

"They that can give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety"--Benjamin Franklin"

"People listen to what their political leaders are telling them, and my view is both that Trump is tapping into some racially ugly attitudes, but also that he is leading people to racially ugly attitudes"--J. D. Vance

"The why is what makes journalism an adult game. The why is what makes policy coherent and useful. The why is what transforms bureaucrats and foot soldiers and political leaders into viable instruments of rational and affirmative change. The why is everything and without it, the very suggestion of human progress becomes a cosmic joke"--David Simon


"The good news, to relieve all this gloom, is that a democracy is inherently self-correcting. Here, the people are sovereign. Inept political leaders can be replaced. Foolish policies can be changed. Disastrous mistakes can be reversed"--Theodore C. Sorensen
