Beware lest you lose the substance by grasping at the shadow.
more Aesop quotes
Marihuana leads to pacifism and communist brainwashing.
more Harry J. Anslinger quotes
Marijuana is an addictive drug which produces in its users insanity, criminality, and death.
more Harry J. Anslinger quotes
The object of life is not to be on the side of the majority, but to escape finding oneself in the ranks of the insane.
more Marcus Aurelius quotes
For whatever deserves to exist deserves also to be known, for knowledge is the image of existence, and things mean and splendid exist alike.
more Sir Francis Bacon quotes
We are all born mad. Some remain so.
more Samuel Beckett quotes
To be paranoid means to believe in delusions of danger and persecution. If the danger is real, and the evidence credible, then it cannot be delusional. To ignore the evidence, and hope that it CANNOT be true, is more an evidence of mental illness.
more William Blase quotes
A free man is he who does not fear to go to the end of his thought.
more Leon Blum quotes
It is said that power corrupts, but actually it's more true that power attracts the corruptible. The sane are usually attracted by other things than power.
more David Brin quotes
Marihuana is a more dangerous drug than heroin or cocaine. I am surprised to learn that certain police officers have been inclined to minimize the effects of the use of marihuana. They would, I am sure, be convinced that the drug is adhering to its Old World traditions of murder, assault, rape, physical demoralization, and mental breakdown. A study of the effects of marihuana shows clearly that it is a dangerous drug, and Bureau records prove that its use is associated with insanity and crime.
more Bulletin of the FBI quotes
Without bigots, eccentrics, cranks and heretics the world would not progress.
more Frank Gelett Burgess quotes
A fanatic is a person who can't change his mind and won't change the subject.
more Sir Winston Churchill quotes
The freedom of each individual can only be the freedom of all.
more Friedrich Durrenmatt quotes
One Blue Dog Democratic House Member reminded me earlier this month of the saying that 'insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.' He wondered if his fellow Members weren't more in need of advice from psychiatrists than from economists at this point.
more John Fund quotes
I am what I have always been: the last Renaissance man, if I may be allowed to say so.
more Hermann Goering quotes
Legislators and revolutionaries who promise equality and liberty at the same time are either psychopaths or mountebanks.
more Johann Wolfgang von Goethe quotes
From the saintly and single-minded idealist to the fanatic is often but a step.
more Friedrich August von Hayek quotes
Truth, in its struggles for recognition, passes through four distinct stages. First, we say it is damnable, dangerous, disorderly, and will surely disrupt society. Second, we declare it is heretical, infidelic and contrary to the Bible. Third, we say it is really a matter of no importance either one way or the other. Fourth, we aver that we have always upheld it and believed it.
more Elbert Hubbard quotes
If there is a God who will damn his children forever, I would rather go to hell than to go to heaven and keep the society of such an infamous tyrant. I make my choice now. I despise that doctrine. It has covered the cheeks of this world with tears. It has polluted the hearts of children, and poisoned the imaginations of men. It has been a constant pain, a perpetual terror to every good man and woman and child. It has filled the good with horror and with fear; but it has had no effect upon the infamous and base. It has wrung the hearts of the tender, it has furrowed the cheeks of the good. This doctrine never should be preached again. What right have you, sir, Mr. clergyman, you, minister of the gospel to stand at the portals of the tomb, at the vestibule of eternity, and fill the future with horror and with fear? I do not believe this doctrine, neither do you. If you did, you could not sleep one moment. Any man who believes it, and has within his breast a decent, throbbing heart, will go insane. A man who believes that doctrine and does not go insane has the heart of a snake and the conscience of a hyena.
more Robert G. Ingersoll quotes
When a well-packaged web of lies has been sold gradually to the masses over generations, the truth will seem utterly preposterous and its speaker a raving lunatic.
more Dresden James quotes
All I kin say is when you finds yo'self wanderin' in a peach orchard, ya don't go lookin' for rutabagas.
more Kingfish quotes
With virtue and quietness one may conquer the world.
more Lao-Tzu quotes
Hitherto the plans of the educationalists have achieved very little of what they attempted, and indeed we may well thank the beneficent obstinacy of real mothers, real nurses, and (above all) real children for preserving the human race in such sanity as it still possesses.
more C. S. Lewis quotes
The most dangerous man, to any government, is the man who is able to think things out for himself, without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos. Almost invariably he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane and intolerable, and so, if he is romantic, he tries to change it. And if he is not romantic personally, he is apt to spread discontent among those who are.
more H. L. Mencken quotes
I am beginning to realize that "sanity" is no longer a value or an end in itself. If modern people were a little less sane, a little more doubtful, a little more aware of their absurdities and contradictions, perhaps there might be the possibility of their survival.
more Thomas Merton quotes
It is madness beyond compare To try to reform the world.
more Molière quotes
Sanity may be madness but the maddest of all is to see life as it is and not as it should be.
more Don Quixote quotes
Of course nothing is ever done about a [presidential] commission report, except, they say, once a man at the state prison for the criminally insane actually read one once clear through. Then he did something about it. He made a bonfire that lasted a week.
more Will Rogers quotes
A social scientist who understands human nature will not dismiss the vital roles of free choice, voluntary cooperation and moral integrity -- as liberals do. A political leader who understands human nature will not ignore individual differences in talent, drive, personal appeal and work ethic, and then try to impose economic and social equality on the population -- as liberals do. And a legislator who understands human nature will not create an environment of rules which over-regulates and overtaxes the nation’s citizens, corrupts their character and reduces them to wards of the state -- as liberals do.
more Lyle H. Rossiter, Jr. quotes
The roots of liberalism – and its associated madness – can be clearly identified by understanding how children develop from infancy to adulthood and how distorted development produces the irrational beliefs of the liberal mind. When the modern liberal mind whines about imaginary victims, rages against imaginary villains and seeks above all else to run the lives of persons competent to run their own lives, the neurosis of the liberal mind becomes painfully obvious.
more Lyle H. Rossiter, Jr. quotes
Based on strikingly irrational beliefs and emotions, modern liberals relentlessly undermine the most important principles on which our freedoms were founded. Like spoiled, angry children, they rebel against the normal responsibilities of adulthood and demand that a parental government meet their needs from cradle to grave.
more Lyle H. Rossiter, Jr. quotes
There is no subjugation so perfect as that which keeps the appearance of freedom for in that way one captures volition itself.
more Jean-Jacques Rousseau quotes
When two people are under the influence of the most violent, most insane, most delusive, and most transient of passions, they are required to swear that they will remain in that excited, abnormal, and exhausting condition continuously until death do them part.
more George Bernard Shaw quotes
That man is richest whose pleasures are cheapest.
more Henry David Thoreau quotes
One of the definitions of sanity is the ability to tell real from unreal. Soon we'll need a new definition.
more Alvin Toffler quotes
The government taxes you when you bring home a paycheck. It taxes you when you make a phone call. It taxes you when you turn on a light. It taxes you when you sell a stock. It taxes you when you fill your car with gas. It taxes you when you ride a plane. It taxes you when you get married. Then it taxes you when you die. This is taxual insanity and it must end.
more J. C. Watts, Jr. quotes
Every really new idea looks crazy at first.
