The trouble is with socialism, which resembles a form of mental illness more than it does a philosophy. Socialists get bees in their bonnets. And because they chronically lack any critical faculty to examine and evaluate their ideas, and because they are pathologically unwilling to consider the opinions of others, and most of all, because socialism is a mindset that regards the individual – and his rights – as insignificant, compared to whatever the socialist believes the group needs, terrible, terrible things happen when socialists acquire power.
Consider well this fact: As long as the German people does not arise and use force directed by its own will, the assassination of the people will continue.
Consider the world as an abode where in you have dropped down for an hour, then you have got to leave it and go ahead; or (suppose it is) like the wealth which you lay hands upon in a dream and become over-joyed and glad. Then you wake up to find yourself empty handed.
"If you would really study my pleasure, mother, you must Consider your own comfort and convenience a little more than you do."anne brontë
Socialism destroys everywhere one thing - diversity. Everything is supposed to be best, and as we know, best things are always in shortage. I remind once more that for reds "best" is what they Consider "best" for us, and not what we like.janusz korwin-mikke
Afghans want to regain their right to self-determination through a democratic or traditional mechanism acceptable to our people.… We are willing to move toward this noble goal.

I Consider myself to be a true friend of the Israeli people. But I define friendship as someone who takes care of a friend, who just doesn't use or exploit a friend. And, you know, there's that old adage: 'Friends don't let friends drive drunk'.scott ritter
When I read the epitaphs of the beautiful, every inordinate desire goes out; when I meet with the grief of parents upon a tombstone, my heart melts with compassion; when I see the tomb of the parents themselves, I Consider the vanity of grieving for those whom we must quickly follow: when I see kings lying by those who deposed them, when I Consider rival wits placed side by side, or the holy men that divided the world with their contests and disputes, I reflect with sorrow and astonishment on the little competitions, factions, and debates of mankind.joseph addison
Indeed, I find it illuminating to Consider to what extent our "classical conditions" for economic growth are satisfied in the current, monopolistic phase of capitalism.paul a. baran
Our future rates of gain will fall far short of those achieved in the past. Berkshire's capital base is now simply too large to allow us to earn truly outsized returns. If you believe otherwise, you should Consider a career in sales but avoid one in mathematics (bearing in mind that there are really only three kinds of people in the world: those who can count and those who can't).warren buffett
To Consider powerful souls as if they were a useful public resource is quite foreign to our customs. In a small sense it is undemocratic, for it assumes that some people really know better in a way that must seem arbitrary to most. In a large sense it is certainly democratic, in that it makes the great man serve as a man.paul goodman
What a wonderful and amazing Scheme have we here of the magnificent Vastness of the Universe! So many Suns, so many Earths, and every one of them stock’d with so many Herbs, Trees and Animals, and adorn’d with so many Seas and Mountains! And how must our wonder and admiration be encreased when we Consider the prodigious distance and multitude of the Stars?christiaan huygens
"Arrh! Stars and Mud, ever conjugate, a Paradox to Consider, one…for the Astronomer-Royal, perhaps?" His current scheme being, to assail Maskelyne's Sanity, by now and then posing to him Questions that will not bear too much cogitating upon, most lately, Über Bernouillis Brachistochronsprobleme , 1702 by Baron von Boppdörfer ("Mind like a Spanish Blade. Read it at the Risk of your Self-Esteem.") having almost done the Trick.thomas pynchon
The Bill of Rights isn't about us, it's about them . It isn't a list of things we're permitted to do, it's a list of things they aren't allowed even to Consider.l. neil smith
Thomson's lecture drew from Fitz Gerald the suggestion that "we are dealing with free electrons in these cathode rays" a remark the point of which will become more evident when we come to Consider the direction in which the Maxwellian theory was being developed at this time.j. j. thomson
Every man will have his own criterion in forming his judgment of others. I depend very much on the effect of affliction. I Consider how a man comes out of the furnace; gold will lie for a month in the furnace without losing a grain.
When I Consider how my light is spent, Ere half my days, in this dark world and wide, And that one talent which is death to hide Lodged with me useless.
Alexander son of Philip and the Greeks, except the Spartans..., as Sparta did not Consider it to be her fathers' practice to follow, but to lead.
Go to the ant, thou sluggard; Consider her ways, and be wise.
What you have said I will Consider; what you have to say I will with patience hear, and find a time Both meet to hear and answer such high things.william shakespeare
Anarcho-capitalism, in my opinion, is a doctrinal system which, if ever implemented, would lead to forms of tyranny and oppression that have few counterparts in human history. ... I should add, however, that I find myself in substantial agreement with people who Consider themselves anarcho-capitalists on a whole range of issues; and for some years, was able to write only in their journals. And I also admire their commitment to rationality which is rare though I do not think they see the consequences of the doctrines they espouse, or their profound moral failings.
When we hear of carbon beginning to appear in the ascending series of rocks, we are unavoidably led to Consider it as marking a time of some importance in the earth's history, a new era of natural conditions, one in which organic life has probably played a part.
Here between the hither and the farther shore While time is withdrawn, Consider the future And the past with an equal mind.
Old things need not be therefore true, O brother men, nor yet the new; Ah! still awhile the old thought retain, And yet Consider it again!arthur hugh clough
