Thomas Sowell Quote: “Time was when people used to brag about how old they were – and I am old enough to remember it.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “It is amazing how many people seem to think that the government exists to turn their prejudices into law.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “The simplest and most psychologically satisfying explanation of any observed phenomenon is that it happened that way because someone wanted it to happen that way.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Unbounded morality ultimately becomes counterproductive even in terms of the same moral principles being sought. The law of diminishing returns applies to morality.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “If politicians stopped meddling with things they don’t understand, there would be a more drastic reduction in the size of government than anyone in either party advocates.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Too many people in Washington are full of themselves, among other things that they are full of.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “As in the general society, fertility tends to be greatest where people are poorest: “The rich get richer, and the poor have children.” In.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “We never really know and the very fact that there are such words in the language as disappointment, regret, etc., is testimony to the pervasiveness and persistence of this feature of the human condition.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “France has never gotten over the fact that it was once a great power and is now just a great nuisance.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Let’s face it, most of us are not half as smart as we may sometimes think we are – and for intellectuals, not one-tenth as smart.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Elections should be held on April 16th- the day after we pay our income taxes. That is one of the few things that might discourage politicians from being big spenders.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “As for gun control advocates, I have no hope whatever that any facts whatever will make the slightest dent in their thinking – or lack of thinking.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “While “greed” is one of the most popular – and most fallacious – explanations of the very high salaries of corporate executives, when your salary depends on what other people are willing to pay you, you can be the greediest person on earth and that will not raise your pay in the slightest. Any serious explanation of corporate executives’ salaries must be based on the reasons for those salaries being offered, not the reasons why the recipients desire them.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “The talkers and writers resent being left on the sidelines by the doers.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “What is politically defined as economic planning is the forcible superseding of other people’s plans by Government officials.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Both history and contemporary data show that countries prosper more when there are stable and dependable rules, under which people can make investments without having to fear unpredictable new government interventions before these investments can pay off.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Compassion is good but politicians have turned compassion into the welfare state.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Actually lowering the cost of insurance would be accomplished by such things as making it harder for lawyers to win frivolous lawsuits against insurance companies.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Cheap medical care is one of the most expensive things there is. So long as politicians can create the illusion of something for nothing, that gets them votes, which is what it is all about, as far as they are concerned.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “The principles applied in economic processes are general social principles.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “In short, some of the least qualified students, taught by the least qualified professors in the lowest quality courses supply most American public school teachers.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Nothing is easier than to get peaceful people to renounce violence, even when they provide no concrete ways to prevent violence from others.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “If you have no right to disapprove, then your approval means nothing. It may indeed be distressing to someone to have you express your opinion that his lifestyle is disgusting and his art, music or writing is crude, shallow, or repugnant, but unless you are free to reach such conclusions, any praise you bestow is hollow and suspect.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “One of the ways of understanding the consequences of economic decisions is to look at them in terms of the incentives they create, rather than simply the goals they pursue.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “I hate to think that someday Americans will be looking at the ruins of their cities and saying that this happened because their leaders were afraid of the word unilateral.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “This was possible only because the anti-slavery movement coincided with an era in which Western power and hegemony were at their zenith, so that it was essentially European imperialism which ended slavery. This idea might seem shocking, not because it does not fit the facts, but because it does not fit the prevailing vision of our time.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Most variables can show either an upward or downward trend, depending on the base year chosen.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Many people, including some conservatives, have been very impressed with how brainy the president and his advisers are. But that is not quite as reassuring as it might seem.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “One of the most pervasive political visions of our time is the vision of liberals as compassionate and conservatives as less caring.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Politicians are forever coming up with ‘solutions’ to virtually every imaginable imperfection in life. But, if we give them more power and more of our money, we are very unlikely to end up better off on net balance.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Any judicial nominee who has said that the Constitution means what it says, not what judges would like it to mean, is going to be called an ‘extremist.’ That person will be said to be ‘out of the mainstream.’ But the mainstream is itself the problem.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Those government officials who want more power are not going to stop unless they get stopped.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “The government is indeed an institution, but “the market” is nothing more than an option for each individual to chose among numerous existing institutions, or to fashion new arrangements suited to his own situation and taste.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “When it is proclaimed that one must become more “sensitive” to various ethnic, linguistic, sexual, or lifestyle groups, neither a reason nor a definition usually accompanies this opaque imperative.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Piketty’s crucial misstep is verbally converting a fluid process over time into a rigid structure, with a more or less permanent top one percent living isolated from the rest of society that is supposedly subjected to their control or influence. It is a vision divorced from demonstrable facts, however consonant it may be with prevailing preconceptions.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Although I am ready to defend what I have said, many people expect me to defend what others have attributed to me.”

Thomas Sowell Quote: “The monumental tragedies of the 20th century – a world-wide Great Depression, two devastating World Wars, the Holocaust, famines killing millions in the Soviet Union and tens of millions in China – should leave us with a sobering sense of the threats to any society. But this generation’s ignorance of history leaves them free to be frivolous – until the next catastrophe strikes, and catches them completely by surprise.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “The left’s obsession with the high incomes of corporate executives never seems to extend to equally high – or higher – incomes of professional athletes, entertainers, or best-selling authors like Danielle Steel.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “The prevalence and power of a vision is shown, not by what its evidence or logic can prove, but precisely by its exemption from any need to provide evidence or logic – by the number of things that can be successfully asserted because they fit the vision, without having to meet the test of fitting the facts.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Nobody would put as little thought and effort into buying an automobile as they put into deciding who to elect as President of the United States.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “People who want special taxes or subsidies for particular things seem not to understand that what they are really asking for is for the prices to misstate the relative scarcities of things and the relative values that the users of these things put on them. One.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “Freedom must be distinguished from democracy, with which it is often confused.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “The power of the intelligentsia is demonstrated not only by their ability to create a general climate of opinion that strikes fear into those who oppose their agenda but also by their ability to create a climate of opinion which richly rewards those political leaders whose decisions are consonant with the vision of the intelligentsia.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “One of the beauties of an economy coordinated by price movements is that nobody has to understand it in order for it to work.”
Thomas Sowell Quote: “People have a vested interest in promoting one set of polices rather than finding out what the truth is.”
