Verified Quotes

I will start this thread with a few quotes that are interesting but also verifiable (in case someone wants to tell you it is a lie), as in with source.


Quote:
I consider (a professional liberal) the lowest form of politician
Verbatim:
"Hopkins was noted [as] an advanced 'Liberal' but not a professional one (I consider the latest the lowest form of politician)"
Harry S. Truman. Personal Diary 22 May 1945
Also on "Off the Record: The Private Papers of Harry S. Truman", p.35

Quote:
Americans have the right and advantage of being armed - unlike the citizens of other countries whose governments are afraid to trust the people with arms.
(James Madison, The Federalist Papers #46 at 243-244)


Quote:
There is a culture of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding it’s way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.
Newsweek: “A Cult of Ignorance” by Isaac Asimov, January 21, 1980, p. 19.

Quote:
The surest way to corrupt a youth is to instruct him to hold in higher esteem those who think alike than those who think differently.
Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche, The Dawn, 1881, Sec. 297
