It is the greatest of all mistakes to do nothing because you can only do little -- do what you can.
Love is the condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own.
A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.
Being intelligent is not a felony. But most societies evaluate it as at least a misdemeanor.
There is no worse tyranny than to force a man to pay for what he does not want merely because you think it would be good for him.
A monarch’s neck should always have a noose around it. It keeps him upright.
Sin lies only in hurting others unnecessarily. All other sins are invented nonsense.
History does not record anywhere a religion that has any rational basis. Religion is a crutch for people not strong enough to stand up to the unknown without help.
I’ve never understood how God could expect His creatures to pick the one true religion by faith. It strikes me as a sloppy way to run a universe.
Men rarely (if ever) manage to dream up a god superior to themselves. Most gods have the manners and morals of a spoiled child.
An armed society is a polite society.
