My favorite Einstein quote,
"Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity.
And I'm not so sure about the former."
I'm also a Jefferson fan....
A democracy is nothing more than mob rule, where fifty-one percent of the people may take away the rights of the other forty-nine.
And Thomas Paine (must be the Deist in me)
Every man has the right to his opinion,however different that opinion might be to mine. He who denies to another this right,makes a slave of himself to his present opnion,because he precludes himself the right of changing it.
