Quotes

“Against stupidity the gods themselves contend in vain.”
Schiller
“Only two things are infinite- the Universe and human stupidity. And I’m not sure about the former .” Einstein

“He’s not as clever as he likes to think – he’s just ambitious with his arguing.”

Frank Turner! “Reasons not to be an idiot” from “Love, Ire and Song”

Here’s some Kant-

“Out of the crooked timber of humanity, no straight thing was ever made.”

“Through laziness and cowardice a large part of mankind, even after nature has freed them from alien guidance, gladly remain immature. It is because of laziness and cowardice that it is so easy for others to usurp the role of guardians. It is so comfortable to be a minor!”

“The guardians who have kindly undertaken the supervision will see to it that by far the largest part of mankind, including the entire “beautiful sex,” should consider the step into maturity, not only as difficult but as very dangerous.
After having made their domestic animals dumb and having carefully prevented these quiet creatures from daring to take any step beyond the lead-strings to which they have fastened them, these guardians then show them the danger which threatens them, should they attempt to walk alone.”
