Inspiring Quotes

Here are a few Inspiring quotes from great minds that I rounded up and would like to share -

"The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing." - Albert Einstein

"Government is not reason, it is not eloquence, it is force like fire, a troublesome servant and a fearful master. Never for a moment should it be left to irresponsible action." - George Washington

"The danger is not that a particular class is unfit to govern. Every class is unfit to govern." - Lord Acton

"Civilization is a limitless multiplication of unnecessary necessities." - Mark Twain

"But I know somehow, that only when it is dark enough, can you see the stars." - Martin Luther King Jr. 

"Socialism is nothing but the capitalism of the lower classes." - Oswald Spengler

"True knowledge exists in knowing that you know nothing. And in knowing that you know nothing, that makes you the smartest of all." - Socrates

"Corporations have been enthroned .... An era of corruption in high places will follow and the money power will endeavor to prolong its reign by working on the prejudices of the people... until wealth is aggregated in a few hands ... and the Republic is destroyed." - Abraham Lincoln

One thing that I feel a lot of people don't grasp is that history almost always repeats itself, when people think that this is the worst our society has ever been, in most aspects they are wrong. Also our forefathers knew that corrupt bankers and politicians were going to take over the government, that is the reason behind the constitution as well as checks and balances to amend it. Food for thought, if you like these quotes I have a lot more.
