Ulysses S. Grant

Encourage free schools and resolve that not one dollar of money appropriated to their support no matter how raised, shall be appropriated to the support of any sectarian school… Leave the matter of religion to the family circle, the church & the private school supported entirely by private contribution. Keep the church and state forever separate.

Thomas Paine

To argue with a person who has renounced the use of reason is like administering medicine to the dead.
I just assume cultists are allergic to facts.

David Frum

Carl Sagan

Scientists can routinely predict a solar eclipse, to the minute, a millennium in advance. You can go to the witch doctor to lift the spell that causes your pernicious anaemia, or you can take Vitamin B12. If you want to save your child from polio, you can pray or you can inoculate. If you're interested in the sex of your unborn child, you can consult plumb-bob danglers all you want… but they'll be right, on average, only one time in two. If you want real accuracy… try amniocentesis and sonograms. Try science.

Pete Buttigieg

Chasten, my husband, pointed out that if our kids someday, some Monday morning, come into class, you know, and kids are sitting around and the teacher's got the morning circle talking about how everybody's weekends went, and one of them says, I had the best weekend with my dads, is the teacher supposed to say, No, we don’t talk about that here?

Any age where it's appropriate to talk about a kid's mom and dad, then it should be appropriate to talk about a kid's mom and mom or dad and dad or whatever family structure we live with. That's part of what it means to be pro-family, is to be pro-every family.

Robert Hendrickson, Rector at St. Philip’s Episcopal Church, Tucson, AZ

This is an awful man, waving a book he hasn’t read, in front of a church he doesn’t attend, invoking laws he doesn’t understand, against fellow Americans he sees as enemies, wielding a military he dodged serving, to protect power he gained via accepting foreign interference, exploiting fear and anger he loves to stoke, after failing to address a pandemic he was warned about, and building it all on a bed of constant lies and childish inanity.

John Cusack

You don't fight fascists because you're guaranteed to win - you fight fascists because they are fascists- and the people of the world have memory - and they know where these stories end.

In wine there is wisdom, in beer there is freedom, in water there is bacteria.

Benjamin Franklin

Behold the rain which descends from heaven upon our vineyards; there it enters the roots of the vines, to be changed into wine; a constant proof that God loves us, and loves to see us happy.

John Candy: Del Griffith (Planes, Trains & Automobiles)

You wanna hurt me? Go right ahead if it makes you feel any better. I'm an easy target. Yeah, you're right, I talk too much. I also listen too much. I could be a cold-hearted cynic like you... but I don't like to hurt people's feelings. Well, you think what you want about me; I'm not changing. I like... I like me. My wife likes me. My customers like me. 'Cause I'm the real article. What you see is what you get.
