Nothing ever becomes real till it is experienced -- even a proverb is no proverb to you till your life has illustrated it.
more John Keats quotes
Express everything you like. No word can hurt you. None. No idea can hurt you. Not being able to express an idea or word will hurt you more. Like a bullet.
more Jamaica Kincaid quotes
Dogma is a defensive reaction against doubt in the mind of the theorist, but doubt of which he is unaware.
more Harold D. Lasswell quotes
A heretic is a man who sees with his own eyes.
more Gotthold Ephraim Lessing quotes
Experience: that most brutal of teachers. But you learn, my God you learn.
more C. S. Lewis quotes
One's first step in wisdom is to question everything -- and one's last is to come to terms with everything.
more Georg Christoph Lichtenberg quotes
Tolerance is the positive and cordial effort to understand another's beliefs, practices, and habits without necessarily sharing or accepting them.
more Joshua Liebman quotes
Within seven centuries, [the ancient Greeks] invented for itself, epic, elegy, lyric, tragedy, novel, democratic government, political and economic science, history, geography, philosophy, physics and biology; and made revolutionary advances in architecture, sculpture, painting, music, oratory, mathematics, astronomy, medicine, anatomy, engineering, law and war... a stupendous feat for whose most brilliant state Attica was the size of Hertfordshire, with a free population (including children) of perhaps 160,000.
more F. J. Lucas quotes
It is impossible for ideas to compete in the marketplace if no forum for their presentation is provided or available.
more Thomas Mann quotes
If the First Amendment means anything, it means that a state has no business telling a man, sitting alone in his own house, what books he may read or what films he may watch. Our whole constitutional heritage rebels at the thought of giving government the power to control men's minds.
more Justice Thurgood Marshall quotes
All I ask is equal freedom. When it is denied, as it always is, I take it anyhow.
more H. L. Mencken quotes
Mankind are greater gainers by suffering each other to live as seems good to themselves, than by compelling each to live as seems good to the rest.
more John Stuart Mill quotes
What we have to remember is that not everything is under our control. If people are free in any meaningful sense of the word, that means they are at liberty to foul up their lives as much as make something grand of them. That's a gamble we all take. That's the risk of liberty. Nobody wants others to screw up their lives, but each must be free to do so for themselves.
more Joel Miller quotes
When it is a duty to worship the sun it is pretty sure to be a crime to examine the laws of heat.
more John Viscount Morley quotes
We are human and our lot is to learn and to be hurled into inconceivable new worlds.
more Novalis quotes
To know the world one must construct it.
more Cesare Pavese quotes
One Galileo in two thousand years is enough.
more Pope Pius XII quotes
A liberal society stands on the proposition that we should all take seriously the idea that we might be wrong. This means we must place no one, including ourselves, beyond the reach of criticism (no final say); it means that we must allow people to err, even where the error offends and upsets, as it often will.
more Jonathan Rauch quotes
The essence of the liberal outlook lies not in what opinions are held, but in how they are held: instead of being viewed dogmatically, they are held tentatively, with a consciousness that new evidence may at any moment lead to their abandonment.
more Bertrand Russell quotes
It is clear that thought is not free if the profession of certain opinions make it impossible to earn a living.
more Bertrand Russell quotes
I pray that no child of mine would ever descend into such a place as a library. They are indeed most dangerous places and unfortunate is she or he who is lured into such a hellhole of enjoyment, stimulus, facts, passion and fun.
more Willy Russell quotes
There is a lurking fear that some things are not meant “to be known,” that some inquiries are too dangerous for human beings to make.
more Carl Sagan quotes
A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.
more George Bernard Shaw quotes
Liberty is the possibility of doubting, the possibility of making a mistake, the possibility of searching and experimenting, the possibility of saying “No” to any authority -- literary, artistic, philosophic, religious, social and even political.
more Ignazio Silone quotes
The Internet…has become the voice of the people in the first genuine experiment in democracy yet conducted in America. It stands ready to serve every facet, every faction.
more Gerry Spence quotes
The knowledge of the world is only to be acquired in the world, and not in a closet.
more Philip Dormer Stanhope quotes
The life of the creative man is lead, directed and controlled by boredom. Avoiding boredom is one of our most important purposes.
more Saul Steinberg quotes
I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and to see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.
more Henry David Thoreau quotes
Disinterested intellectual curiosity is the blood of real civilization.
more G. M. Trevelyan quotes
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines, Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream.
more Mark Twain quotes
There are for man only two principles available for a mental grasp of reality, namely, those of teleology and causality. What cannot be brought under either of these categories is absolutely hidden to the human mind. An event not open to an interpretation by one of these two principles is for man inconceivable and mysterious. Change can be conceived as the outcome either of the operation of mechanistic causality or of purposeful behavior; for the human mind there is no third way available.
more Ludwig von Mises quotes
All growth, including political growth, is the result of risk-taking.
more Jude Wanniski quotes
We are not clear as to the role in life of these chemicals; nor are we clear as to the role of the physician. You know, of course, that in ancient times there was no clear distinction between priest and physician.
more Alan Watts quotes
When freedom prevails, the ingenuity and inventiveness of people creates incredible wealth. This is the source of the natural improvement of the human condition.
more Brian S. Wesbury quotes
When choosing between two evils I always like to take the one I've never tried before.
more Mae West quotes
Every really new idea looks crazy at first.
more Alfred North Whitehead quotes
To believe is very dull. To doubt is intensely engrossing. To be on the alert is to live, to be lulled into security is to die.
more Oscar Wilde quotes
Prejudice rarely survives experience.
