Thomas Paine Quote: “I consider the war of America against Britain as the country’s war, the public’s war, or the war of the people in their own behalf, for the security of their natural rights, and the protection of their own property.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “The American constitutions were to liberty, what a grammar is to language: they define its parts of speech, and practically construct them into syntax.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “It is not in numbers, but in unity, that our great strength lies; yet our present numbers are sufficient to repel the force of all the world.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “Man cannot make, or invent, or contrive principles; he can only discover them; and he ought to look through the discovery to the Author.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “And as a man, who is attached to a prostitute, is unfitted to choose or judge of a wife, so any prepossession in favour of a rotten constitution of government will disable us from discerning a good one.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “The sublime and the ridiculous are often so nearly related, that it is difficult to class them separately. One step above the sublime makes the ridiculous, and one step above the ridiculous makes the sublime again.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “The adulterous connection between church and state...”
Thomas Paine Quote: “Human nature is not of itself vicious.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “Of all the systems of religion that ever were invented, there is no more derogatory to the Almighty, more unedifiying to man, more repugnant to reason, and more contradictory to itself than this thing called Christianity.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “The story of Jesus Christ appearing after he was dead is the story of an apparition, such as timid imaginations can always create in vision, and credulity believe. Stories of this kind had been told of the assassination of Julius Caesar.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “I detest the Bible as I detest everything that is cruel.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “Immediate necessity makes many things convenient, which if continued would grow into oppressions.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “Titles do not count with posterity.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “Immediate necessity makes many things convenient, which if continued would grow into oppressions. Expedience and right are different things.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “Man is not the enemy of man, but through the medium of a false system of Government. Instead, therefore, of exclaiming against the ambition of kings, the exclamation should be directed against the principle of such governments; and instead of seeking to reform the individual, the wisdom of a nation should apply itself to reform the system.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “Government, like dress, is the badge of lost innocence; the palaces of kings are built on the ruins of the bowers of paradise.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “I do not believe that any two men, on what are called doctrinal points, think alike who think at all. It is only those who have not thought that appear to agree.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “Calumny is a vice of curious constitution; trying to kill it keeps it alive; leave it to itself and it will die a natural death.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “But if objects for gratitude and admiration are our desire, do they not present themselves every hour to our eyes?”
Thomas Paine Quote: “It is not a God, just and good, but a devil, under the name of God, that the Bible describes.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “Every age and generation must be as free to act for itself.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “The animals to whom nature has given the faculty we call cunning know always when to use it, and use it wisely; but when man descends to cunning he blunders and betrays.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “It is unpleasant to see character throw itself away.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “It may perhaps be said that it signifies nothing to a man what is done to him after he is dead; but it signifies much to the living; it either tortures their feelings or hardens their hearts...”
Thomas Paine Quote: “The Almighty implanted in us these inextinguishable feelings for good and wise purposes. They are the guardians of His image in our heart. They distinguish us from the herd of common animals.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “The instant formal government is abolished, society begins to act. A general association takes place, and common interest produces common security.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “The more we bestow the richer we become.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “Titles are but nicknames, and every nickname is a title.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “Thus commerce, though in itself a moral nullity, has had a considerable influence in tempering the human mind... he trades with the same countries... (that he) would have gone to war with.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “In the early ages of the world, according to the scripture chronology, there were no kings; the consequence of which was there were no wars; it is the pride of kings which throws mankind into confusion.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “How necessary it is at all times to watch against the attempted encroachment of power, and to prevent its running to excess.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “Public credit is suspicion asleep.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “Prophesying is lying professionally.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “From whence, then, could arise the solitary and strange conceit that the Almighty, who had millions of worlds equally dependant on His protection, should quit the care of all the rest, and come to die in our world, because, they say, one man and one woman had eaten an apple?”
Thomas Paine Quote: “It is a position not to be controverted, that the earth... was and ever would have continued to be, the COMMON PROPERTY OF THE HUMAN RACE.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “As to religion, I hold it to be the indispensable duty of all government to protect all conscientious professors thereof, and I know of no other business which government hath to do therewith.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “What is it the Bible teaches us? – rapine, cruelty, and murder.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “Is it not a species of blasphemy to call the New Testament revealed religion, when we see in it such contradictions and absurdities.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “I have never made it a consideration whether the subject was popular or unpopular, but whether it was right or wrong; for that which is right will become popular, and that which is wrong, though by mistake it may obtain the cry or fashion of the day, will soon lose the power of delusion, and sink into disesteem.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “Aristocracy is kept up by family tyranny and injustice.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “To take away (voting) is to reduce a man to slavery.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “The fate of Charles I has only made kings more subtle, not more just.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “I know not whether taxes are raised to fight wars, or wars are fought in order to raise taxes.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “The New Testament rests itself for credulity and testimony on what are called prophecies in the Old Testament, of the person called Jesus Christ; and if there are no such things as prophecies of any such person in the Old Testament, the New Testament.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “There now remain only a few books, which they call books of the lesser prophets; and as I have already shown that the greater are impostors, it would be cowardice to disturb the repose of the little ones. Let them sleep, then, in the arms of their nurses, the priests, and both be forgotten together.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “I am sensible that he who means to do mankind a real service must set down with the determination of putting up, and bearing with all their faults, follies, prejudices and mistakes until he can convince them that he is right.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “Man did not enter society to be worse off, or to have fewer rights, but rather to have those rights better secured.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “Politics and self-interest have been so uniformly connected, that the world, from being so often deceived, has a right to be suspicious of public characters.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “Government is nothing more than a national association; and the object of this association is the good of all, as well individually as collectively. Every man wishes to pursue his occupation, and to enjoy the fruits of his labours and the produce of his property in peace and safety, and with the least possible expense. When these things are accomplished, all the objects for which government ought to be established are anwered.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “It is a faculty of the human mind to become what it contemplates, and to act in unison with its object.”
