Top 5 quotes from Thomas Sowell
"Egalitarians create the most dangerous inequality of all -- inequality of power. Allowing politicians to determine what all other human beings will be allowed to earn is one of the most reckless gambles imaginable. Like the income tax, it may start off being applied only to the rich but it will inevitably reach us all."
"There are no solutions...there are only trade-offs."
"Those who are preoccupied with 'making a statement' usually don't have any statements worth making."
"I have always been offended by the song that says, 'Everything is beautiful in its own way.' If everything is beautiful, then the word 'beautiful' has no meaning. If everything were purple, there would be no word 'purple' in the language because it would not distinguish one thing from another."
"People sometimes ask if I have tried to convince black 'leaders' to take a different view on racial issues. Of course not. I wouldn't spend my time trying to persuade the mafia to give up crime. Why should I spend time trying to convince race hustlers to give up victimhood? It's their bread and butter."
Top 5 quotes from Politics

"The longer I am out of office, the more infallible I appear to myself."
"Politics is perhaps the only profession for which no preparation is thought necessary."
"The Vice Presidency is sort of like the last cookie on the plate. Everybody insists he won't take it, but somebody always does."
"Politics has got so expensive that it takes lots of money to even get beat with."
