Thomas Paine

'Tis the business of little minds to shrink; but he whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves his conduct, will pursue his principles unto death.More Thomas Paine quotes [07/20/2011 04:07:07]
How necessary it is at all times to watch against the attempted encroachment of power, and to prevent its running to excess.More Thomas Paine quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It is the direction and not the magnitude which is to be taken into consideration.More Thomas Paine quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The nearer any disease approaches to a crisis, the nearer it is to a cure. Danger and deliverance make their advances together; and it is only in the last push that one or the other takes the lead.More Thomas Paine quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The evil that has resulted from the error of the schools, in teaching natural philosophy as an accomplishment only, has been that of generating in the pupils a species of atheism. Instead of looking through the works of creation to the Creator himself, they stop short, and employ the knowledge they acquire to create doubts of his existence. They labour with studied ingenuity to ascribe every thing they behold to innate properties of matter, and jump over all the rest by saying, that matter is eternal.More Thomas Paine quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
