In the end, everything is a gag.More Thomas Carlyle quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Men are to be guided only by their self-interests. Good government is a good balancing of these; and, except a keen eye and appetite for self-interest, requires no virtue in any quarter. To both parties it is emphatically a machine: to the discontented, a taxing-machine; to the contented, a machine for securing property. Its duties and its faults are not those of a father, but of an active parish-constable.More Thomas Carlyle quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
A force as of madness in the hands of reason has done all that was ever done in the world.More Thomas Carlyle quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
A man's religion consists, not of the many things he is in doubt of and tries to believe, but of the few he is assured of and has no need of effort for believing.More Thomas Carlyle quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
