For years, I’ve subscribed to Van’s Quotes of the Day.
Today’s mailing included this gem from C. S. Lewis:
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its
victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live
under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies.
The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity
may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for
our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with
the approval of their consciences.
Sound like any
political parties persons you know?
Fair use: I emailed Van about posting his quotes a long time ago. The gist of his response was, “The quotes are public domain, and please mention my mailing list.” Follow the link to join his list.
