“There is nobody in this country who got rich on their own. Nobody. You built a factory out there - good for you. But I want to be clear. You moved your goods to market on roads the rest of us paid for. You hired workers the rest of us paid to educate. You were safe in your factory because of police forces and fire forces that the rest of us paid for. You didn't have to worry that marauding bands would come and seize everything at your factory... Now look. You built a factory and it turned into something terrific or a great idea - God bless! Keep a hunk of it. But part of the underlying social contract is you take a hunk of that and pay forward for the next kid who comes along.”
Elizabeth Warren

“We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful about what we pretend to be.”
Kurt Vonnegut, Mother Night

“True terror is to wake up one morning and discover that your high school class is running the country.”
Kurt Vonnegut

“I have this disease late at night sometimes, involving alcohol and the telephone.”
Kurt Vonnegut, Slaughterhouse-Five

“When I have a little money, I buy books; and if I have any left, I buy food and clothes.”
Desiderius Erasmus
