Quotes

Jesus Christ (If I had to only pick one): “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment.  And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”

Thomas Jefferson: “To consider the judges as the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions…would place us under the despotism of an oligarchy.”

Grant Allen (A similar, later quote is often attributed to Mark Twain): “What a misfortune it is that we should thus be compelled to let our boys’ schooling interfere with their education!”

Harriet Tubman: “I freed thousands of slaves. I could have freed thousands more, if they had known they were slaves.”

Henry Ford: “Progress happens when all the factors that make for it are ready and then it is inevitable. To teach that a comparatively few men are responsible for the greatest forward steps of mankind is the worst sort of nonsense.”

 

Plato: “The chief penalty is to be governed by someone worse if a man will not himself hold office and rule”
