Aphorisms about society and government

If voting changed anything, they'd make it illegal.

--Emma Goldman

Your argument is sound, nothing but sound.

--Benjamin Franklin

If you aren't fired with enthusiasm, you will be fired with enthusiasm.

--Vince Lombardi

Often you must turn your stylus to erase, if you hope to write anything worth a second reading. 

--Horace, poet and satirist (65-8 BCE)

I would rather die standing than live on my knees!

--Emiliano Zapata

There is a theory which states that if ever anybody discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened.

--Douglas Adams

Society is like a stew. If you don't keep it stirred up you get a lot of scum on the top.

--Edward Abbey, (1927-1989) 

A government that is big enough to give you all you want is big enough to take it all away.

--Barry M. Goldwater

The 1st Amendment protects the right to speak, not the right to spend.

--Byron R. White

Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.

--Larry Flynt

In the presence of eternity, the mountains are as transient as the clouds.

--Robert Green Ingersoll, (1833-1899)

Man is the best computer we can put aboard a spacecraft and the only one that can be mass produced with unskilled labor.

Mathematics is the language with which God has written the universe.

--Galileo Galilei, (1564-1642)

Our sun is one of 100 billion stars in our galaxy.  Our galaxy is one of the billions of galaxies populating the universe. It would be the height of presumption to think that we are the only living things within that enormous immensity. 

--Wernher von Braun, rocket engineer (1912-1977)

If mankind minus one were of one opinion, then mankind is no more justified in silencing the one than the one--if he had the power--would be justified in silencing mankind. 

--John Stuart Mill, philosopher and economist (1806-1873)

The devil can cite Scripture for his purpose. 

--William Shakespeare, (1564-1616)

People who are willing to give up freedom for the sake of short term security, deserve neither freedom nor security. 

--Benjamin Franklin, (1706-1790)

The more we live by our intellect, the less we understand the meaning of life. 

--Leo Tolstoy,  (1828-1910)

Fame is a vapor; popularity an accident; the only earthly certainty is oblivion. 

--Mark Twain, (1835-1910)

I don't hate my enemies. After all, I made 'em.

--Red Skelton, comedian (1913-1997)

It is the characteristic of the most stringent censorships that they give credibility to the opinions they attack. 

--Voltaire, (1694-1778)

The two most engaging powers of an author are to make new things familiar, and familiar things new. 

--Samuel Johnson, (1709-1784)

The art of prophecy is very difficult -- especially with respect to the future.

-- Mark Twain, (1835-1910)
