Need a quote?

"The key to wisdom is this – constant and frequent questioning ... for by doubting we are led to question and by questioning we arrive at the truth." - Peter Abelard

After yesterday's post I received an e-mail from Mr. Wilcox, one of the co-authors of the refreshingly humanistic American Extremists*, providing me links to five e-books of quotes he has compiled on various subjects. Here they are:

There are a multitude of great quotes contained in the above compilations (including the one from Abelard.)

*The authors, in writing the book, very much follow Spinoza's maxim (much more so that I have been able to do):

"I have made a ceaseless effort not to ridicule, not to bewail, not to scorn human actions, but to understand them."
