Wayne Bell, California Real Estate Commissioner from 2013 to 2018 (and my favorite) posted four quotes recently and they make you think a little. And they are as appropriate today as when they were created. See what you think.
“If you must take care that your opinions do not differ in the least from those of the person with whom you are talking, you might just as well be alone”. — Yoshida Kenko (1283 – 1350), Japanese poet and essayist, and Buddhist monk.
“To suppress free speech is a double wrong. It violates the rights of the hearer as well as those of the speaker”. — Frederick Douglass (2/14/1818 -2/20/1895), American abolitionist, social reformer, writer, orator, and statesman.
“The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are always so certain of themselves, and wiser people so full of doubts”. — Bertrand Russell (1872 – 1970), British philosopher, writer, and social critic.
“You can educate a fool, but you cannot make him think”. — The Talmud
