"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." -

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."
"Much of the social history of the Western world over the past three decades has involved replacing what worked with what sounded good."
"Those who are preoccupied with 'making a statement' usually don't have any statements worth making."
"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 Beauty
"Calm, lasting beauty comes only in a dream, and this solace the world had thrown away when in its worship of the real it threw away the secrets of childhood and innocence."
"Think of all the beauty that's still left in and around you, and be happy."
"When I am working on a problem I never think about beauty. I only think about how to solve the problem. But when I have finished, if the solution is not beautiful, I know it is wrong."
"Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it."
"It was when I was happiest that I longed most...The sweetest thing in all my life has been the longing...to find the place where all the beauty came from."
