From my Yahoo! 360 site

This thing never shows up in my Yahoo! groups for some reason, so I'm going to put it all here. This is the first post I put on it.

Some of my favorite quotes

"Public schools are government-established, politician- and bureaucrat-controlled, fully politicized, taxpayer-supported, authoritarian socialist institutions." - Thomas L. Johnson

"What is ominous is the ease with which some people go from saying that they don't like something to saying that the government should forbid it. When you go down that road, don't expect freedom to survive very long." --Thomas Sowell

"In a nutshell, people whose lives are hard, boring, painful, meaningless -- people who suffer -- tend to resent those who seem to suffer less than they do, and will make them suffer if they can. People who feel themselves in chains, with no hope of ever getting them off, want to put chains on everyone else." -- John Holt, Teach Your Own, Introduction.

"When I do good, I feel good; when I do bad, I feel bad, and that is my religion." -- Abraham Lincoln (attributed)

"The marvel of all history is the patience with which men and women submit to burdens unnecessarily laid upon them by their governments." -- William H. Borah

“What is most important and valuable about the home as a base for children’s growth into the world is not that it is a better school than the schools, but that it isn’t a school at all.” –John Holt

"It is not a sign of good health to be well-adjusted to a sick society."...J. Krishnamurti (1895-1986)
