The class of those who have the ability to think their own thoughts is separated by an unbridgeable gulf from the class of those who cannot. (Quote by - Ludwig Von Mises)

Reality is wrong. Dreams are for real. (Quote by - Tupac Shakur)

He that will not apply new remedies must expect new evils; for time is the greatest innovator. (Quote by - Francis Bacon)

Any young person who has studied Heidegger; or seen Ionesco's 'plays'; or listened to the 'music' of John Cage; or looked at Andy Warhol's 'paintings'- has experienced that feeling of incredulous puzzlement: But this is nonsense! Can I really be expected to take this seriously?In fact, of course, it is necessary for it to be nonsense; if it made sense, it could be evaluated. The essence of modern intellectual snobbery is the 'emperor's new cloths' approach. Teachers, critics, our self-appointed intellectual elite, make it quite clear to us that if we cannot see the superlative nature of this 'art'- why, it merely shows our ignorance, our lack of sophistication and insight. Of course, they go beyond the storybook emperor's tailors, who dressed their victim in nothing and called it fine garments. The modern tailors dress the emperor in garbage. (Quote by - Ron Merrill)

No one is truly literate who cannot read his own heart. (Quote by - Eric Hoffer)

Psychoanalysis has changed American psychology from a diagnostic to a therapeutic science, not because so many patients are cured by the psychoanalytic technique, but because of the new understanding of psychiatric patients it has given us, and the new and different concept of illness and health. (Quote by - Karl A. Menninger)

Ideas, as the raw material from which knowledge is produced, exist in superabundance, but that makes the production of knowledge more difficult rather than easier. Many ideas- probably most- will have to be discarded somewhere in the process of producing authenticated knowledge. Authentication is as important as the raw information itself, and the manner and speed of the authentication process can be crucial. (Quote by - Thomas Sowell)

It is only doubt that creates. It is only the minority that counts. (Quote by - H.l. Mencken)

The compulsion to take ourselves seriously is in inverse proportion to our creative capacity. When the creative flow dries up, all we have left is our importance. (Quote by - Eric Hoffer)

When we leave people on their own, we are delivering them into the hands of a ruthless taskmaster from whose bondage there is no escape. The individual who has to justify his existence by his own efforts is in eternal bondage to himself. (Quote by - Eric Hoffer)

We do not usually look for allies when we love. Indeed, we often look on those who love with us as rivals and trespassers. But we always look for allies when we hate. (Quote by - Eric Hoffer)

Nothing in the world is more dangerous than a sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity. (Quote by - Martin Luther King)

There is an accumulative cruelty in a number of men, though none in particular are ill-natured. (Quote by - Lord Halifax)

We probably have a greater love for those we support than for those who support us. Our vanity carries greater weight than our self-interest. (Quote by - Eric Hoffer)
