Wise Words from Thomas Sowell

This is one of Earnie's favorite writers; she reads him on a regular basis. Here's a smattering of wisdom on a variety of subjects- immensely quotable.

For instance: "“Many colleges claim that they develop ‘leaders.’ All too often, that means turning out graduates who cannot feel fulfilled unless they are telling other people what to do. There are already too many people like that, and they are a menace to everyone else's freedom.”"

Tell Earnie that we get Thomas Sowell regularly in the Dallas Morning News, and I share her fine opinion. However, I would have never read this 'random thoughts' piece by Sowell if you hadn't posted it. Lots of good stuff here in paragraph-size bites. Thanks!!
