Arthur C. Brooks – 5 Quotes

 

5 Quotes by Arthur C. Brooks

 

If you think spreading money around by force seems like an odd definition of fairness, you’re not alone.

– Arthur C. Brooks


We will have bigger bureaucracies, bigger labor unions, and bigger state-run corporations. It will be harder to be an entrepreneur because of punitive taxes and regulations. The rewards of success will be expropriated for the sake of attaining greater income equality.

– Arthur C. Brooks


The more control you have over your life, the more responsible you feel for your own success – or failure.

– Arthur C. Brooks


There is nothing inherently fair about equalizing incomes. If the government penalizes you for working harder than somebody else, that is unfair. If you save your money but retire with the same pension as a free-spending neighbor, that is also unfair.

– Arthur C. Brooks


The truth is that relative income is not directly related to happiness. Nonpartisan social-survey data clearly show that the big driver of happiness is earned success: a person’s belief that he has created value in his life or the life of others.

– Arthur C. Brooks

Even when poetry has a meaning, as it usually has, it may be inadvisable to draw it out… Perfect understanding will sometimes almost extinguish pleasure.

– Allen Boyd


America’s fighting men and women sacrifice much to ensure that our great nation stays free. We owe a debt of gratitude to the soldiers that have paid the ultimate price for this cause, as well as for those who are blessed enough to return from the battlefield unscathed.

– Allen Boyd


Our government has made a number of promises to the men and women who served in our nation’s armed forces. Sadly, these promises of health care, education and other benefits have existed more in rhetoric than in reality.

– Allen Boyd



Agnes Repplier – 6 Quotes

 

6 Quotes by Agnes Repplier

 

It is as impossible to withhold education from the receptive mind, as it is impossible to force it upon the unreasoning.

A kitten is chiefly remarkable for rushing about like mad at nothing whatever, and generally stopping before it gets there.

– Agnes Repplier

– Atticus Shaffer


Just recently I was in Target with my mom shopping, and out of the blue, I see this father and his two daughters and he says, ‘Can they get a picture with you?’ And I’m thinking to myself, ‘Am I the one millionth customer or something?’

– Atticus Shaffer


My mom thought I might be good for voiceover. She thought I had a cute voice, so maybe I could do a cartoon or something. And while we were looking into that, we also thought I should get into theater acting, so I tried it and the first audition I went on, I booked it. And it kind of just snowballed from there.

– Atticus Shaffer


We live in the country. I’m a redneck. No, ha-ha. I live in L.A. County, but more in the hills. Not in the fancy kind! Trust me whatever you do you do not want to come to my neighborhood!

– Atticus Shaffer

All of my friends are animal people. To me, cats are people, too. Animals are people, too. I travel a lot and when I go overseas, it’s really hard on me because the animals are treated much differently, especially in developing countries.

One of the things I’ve always liked about my husband is he’s very good at lots of stuff. He was an English teacher when I met him. He wrote poetry and played the guitar. As time went on, he decided to go into economics, so he’s very analytical and mathematical in addition to his artsy side.
