Quotations on thinking, speaking and writing (26)

“The truth will set you free, but first it will piss you off.”
~Gloria Steinem (pictured)

“Fear not the path of truth for the lack of people walking on it.”
~Robert F. Kennedy

“[American family court] is a system that is corrupt on [its] best day. It is like being tied to the back of a pickup truck and dragged down a gravel [road] late at night. No one can hear your cries and complaints and it is not over until they say it’s over.”
~Alec Baldwin

“We live in an age of no poetry—the first such age in all of human history.”
~John Derbyshire

“Stupid ideas spread when people who know better refuse to confront them.”
~John Leo

“I do not believe in God, because I believe in man. Whatever his mistakes, man has for thousands of years past been working to undo the botched job your God has made.”
~Emma Goldman

“Promise me you’ll always remember: You’re braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.”
~A.A. Milne

“Dare to be wrong and to dream.”
~Friedrich von Schiller

The Takeaway: Keep an open mind. Or, as Robert Frost put it, “Education is the ability to listen to almost anything without losing your temper or your self-confidence.” (BTW, how did you fare on the above quotations?)
