"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their consciences."--- C.S. Lewis

One more funny one..

When being bickered at by a dissenting elitist at a dinner party -

'Mr. Churchill, if you were my husband, I'd poison your tea!'

Churchill: "And if you were my wife, I would drink it!"

- Winston Churchill

It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies.

Then again, it might not.

The American people lived under the heel of the robber barons.

They couldn't wait to limit their authority.

Those who want this nation to return to those days are truly tools.

Common sense is the most evenly distributed quantity in the world. Everyone thinks he has enough.

All people have the right to stupidity but some abuse the privilege.

A word to the wise ain't necessary - it's the stupid ones that need the advice.

There were once three frogs on a log and one of them made a decision to jump in. How many were left?

The church is near, but the road is icy. The tavern is far away and I will walk carefully

There was a young curate from Crew
Who kept a cat in a pew.
He said: "I shall endeavour to seek
To teach it some Greek"
(But never got farther than µ.)
