Favorite Quotes

Some of my favorite Quotes from the Truist.

  • It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the ones most responsive to change. --Charles Darwin

  • Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself. --Leo Tolstoy

  • One of the things I routinely tell people is that if it’s in the news, don’t worry about it. By definition, “news” means that it hardly ever happens. If a risk is in the news, then it’s probably not worth worrying about. When something is no longer reported – automobile deaths, domestic violence – when it’s so common that it’s not news, then you should start worrying. --Bruce Schneier

  • I have learned that it is the weak who are cruel, and that gentleness is to be expected only from the strong. --Leo Rosten

  • It is a miracle that curiosity survives formal education. --Albert Einstein

  • The trouble with fighting for human freedom is that one spends most of one’s time defending scoundrels. For it is against scoundrels that oppressive laws are first aimed, and oppression must be stopped at the beginning if it is to be stopped at all. --H. L. Mencken

  • Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety. --Benjamin Franklin

  • Build a man a fire and you keep him warm for a day. Light a man on fire and you keep him warm for the rest of his life. --Slashdot .sig

  • Academics get paid for being clever, not for being right. --Donald Norman

  • You never see a motorcycle parked in front of a psychiatrist’s office. --Bumper sticker
