Thomas Sowell’s Random Thoughts.
Thomas Sowell gives us some Random Thoughts (read here) from wise thinkers. Here are a few examples.
• “We shall not grow wiser before we learn that much that we have done was very foolish.” (F.A. Hayek)
• “There is no safety for honest men, but by believing all possible evil of evil men, and by acting with promptitude, decision, and steadiness on that belief.” (Edmund Burke)
• “The study of history is a powerful antidote to contemporary arrogance. It is humbling to discover how many of our glib assumptions, which seem to us novel and plausible, have been tested before, not once but many times and in innumerable guises; and discovered to be, at great human cost, wholly false.” (Paul Johnson)
