    Default Got Quotes?

    A few of my favorite quotes from George Santayana

    Please feel free to add quotes by your list of thinkers. Original quotes are welcome as well and get extra bonus points.

    A child educated only at school is an uneducated child.

    Depression is rage spread thin.

    Intolerance is a form of egotism, and to condemn egotism intolerantly is to share it.

    The wisest mind has something yet to learn.

    Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it.


    George has many more quotes many of which are good and a whole other group I would have liked to discuss with him. He was born in Spain and is buried in Rome. He always stated that he was American educated as he was a Harvard man. Being a Boston cream pie man I will not hold that against him.

    To be vigilant, prepared and capable is more than a motto;
    it is a duty to those we love and care for.


    The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil,
    but because of those who look on and do nothing."....
    Albert Einstein

    "I do not fear an army of lions if they are led by a lamb. I do fear an army of sheep if they are led by a lion."
    Alexander the Great
    July 356 – June 323 B.C.

    Still considered the most brilliant military commander who ever lived, Alexander earned the epithet "the Great" due to his unparalleled success on the battlefield. Not only did Alexander never lose a war, he never lost a battle, despite typically being outnumbered. This was due to his use of terrain, infantry and cavalry tactics, bold strategy, and the fierce loyalty of his troops.

    Default When I have been watching the news

    Like most people life sometimes gets me down and when that happens I often turn to my favorite humorest, musican, author and poet, Kinky Friedman. As refreshing as a gym bag and too honest for politics, Kinky is known for lines like, "they don't make Jews like Jesus anymore."

    A few of my favorite Kinky Friedman quotes;

    Cats, as a rule, don't like lawyers. They have great insight into human character.

    The Democrats and Republicans are the same guy admiring themself in a mirror.

    These days, of course, I would support Charlie Sheen over Obama.

    Any man who can drive safely while kissing a pretty girl is simply not giving the kiss the attention it deserves. – Albert Einstein


    Among the many misdeeds of the British rule in India, history will look upon the act depriving a whole nation of arms as the blackest. – Mahatma Gandhi


    If I am walking with two other men, each of them will serve as my teacher. I will pick out the good points of the one and imitate them, and the bad points of the other and correct them in myself. – Confucius

    It takes only seconds to call the police, waiting for them to arrive could take the rest of your life...

    Okay, I'll admit it, I remember when "Strangers In The Night" was the number one song on AM (what the hell is FM?) radio.
