John Locke Quote: “Fashion for the most part is nothing but the ostentation of riches.”

John Locke Quote: “He that would seriously set upon the search of truth, ought in the first place to prepare his mind with a love of it. For he that loves it not, will not take much pains to get it; nor be much concerned when he misses it.”
John Locke Quote: “God; I esteem it above all things necessary to distinguish exactly the business of civil government from that of religion and to settle the just bounds that lie between the one and the other.

John Locke Quote: “If all be a Dream, then he doth but dream that he makes the Question; and so it is not much matter that a waking Man should answer him.”
John Locke Quote: “Our deeds disguise us. People need endless time to try on their deeds, until each knows the proper deeds for him to do. But every day, every hour, rushes by. There is no time.”
