    Quotable quotes

    How many times have you seen a quote in a "Social Media" post attributed to some historical person. If you see such a quote and are able to find a web link that tends to verify it, post the quote and link in the thread to use as a future reference.

    Maximilien de Robespierre was a radical Jacobin leader and one of the principal figures in the French Revolution. Quote:
    “The secret of freedom lies in educating people, whereas the secret of tyranny is in keeping them ignorant.”

    Probably my most favorite quote of all time is from Thomas Paine:

    He who dares not offend cannot be honest.

    Thomas Paine Quote - He who dares no...

    He's got dozens and dozens of my favorite quotes. The dude was brilliant!!

    Much of the social history of the Western world, over the past three decades, has been a history of replacing what worked with what sounded good. - Thomas Sowell


    Socialism in general has a record of failure so blatant that only an intellectual could ignore or evade it. - Thomas Sowell



    The word 'racism' is like ketchup. It can be put on practically anything - and demanding evidence makes you a 'racist.' Thomas Sowell

    “It is only when mosquito land on your balls that you realize there is a way to solve problems without using violence.”
    ― Confucius


    “He who knows all the answers has not been asked all the questions.”
    ― Confucius

    “The hardest thing of all is to find a black cat in a dark room, especially if there is no cat.”
    ― Confucius
    A tree is known by its fruit, a man by his deeds. A good deed is never lost, he who sows courtesy, reaps friendship, and he who plants kindness gathers love.

    Blessed are they who can laugh at themselves, for they shall never cease to be amused.
