A Pile of Quotes

Sometimes quotes begin to stack up on my desk. This is me unloading them upon you. And yes, they are unrelated.

“This offspring of the legitimate marriage between theological ignorance and religious intolerance, blessed by a sleep-walking philosophy, succeeds in making itself so completely ridiculous that it renders any serious reply unnecessary.” – D.F. Strauss

“A capitalist system that privatizes profits in good times and socializes losses in bad times needs some fixes.” – Milton Friedman

“Wealth consists not in having great possessions, but in having few wants.” – Epictetus

“Truly it is an evil to be full of faults but it is still a greater evil to be full of them, and to be unwilling to recognize them.” – Blaise Pascal

“From silly devotions and sour-faced saints, spare us, O Lord.”– Teresa of Avila
