I just returned home from a nice party and found an email with Thomas Sowell’s quotes. I read all quotes and then went to Google to find out who was Thomas Sowell.
Here is what I found: THOMAS SOWELL
Then I went back to the email and copied several quotes.
You can see them below and make your own conclusions.
“Much of the social history of the Western world, over the past three decades, has been a history of replacing what worked with what sounded good.”
“It is hard to imagine a more stupid or more dangerous way of making decisions than by putting those decisions in the hands of people who pay no price for being wrong.”
“One of the consequences of such notions as ‘entitlements’ is that people who have contributed nothing to society feel that society owes them something, apparently just for being nice enough to grace us with their presence.”
“I have never understood why it is “greed” to want to keep the money you have earned but not greed to want to take somebody else’s money.”“When you want to help people, you tell them the truth. When you want to help yourself, you tell them what they want to hear.”*“Weighing benefits against costs is the way most people make decisions — and the way most businesses make decisions, if they want to stay in business. Only in government is any benefit, however small, considered to be worth any cost, however large.”
