Political Ironies

Memorable quotes

The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings,

the inherent vice of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries.

* * *

Some regard private enterprise as if it were a predatory tiger to be shot,

Others look upon it as a cow they can milk,

Only a handful see it for what it really is - the strong horse that pulls the whole cart.

* * *

You don't make the poor richer by making the rich poorer.

* * *

If you are 20 and not a liberal, you have no heart,

If you are 40 and not a conservative, you have no brain.

(I prefer a more kinder and gentler term of having no common sense.)

* * *

The farther backward you can look, the farther forward you are likely to see.
Learn from past mistakes in history.
