More of Michael's books…
Thomas Jefferson
“I predict future happiness for Americans, if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.”
Thomas Jefferson

Cesare Beccaria
“False is the idea of utility that sacrifices a thousand real advantages for one imaginary or trifling inconvenience; that would take fire from men because it burns, and water because one may drown in it; that it has no remedy for evils, except destruction. The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are of such a nature. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.”
Cesare Beccaria

Jules Verne
“Science, my lad, is made up of mistakes, but they are mistakes which it is useful to make, because they lead little by little to the truth.”
Jules Verne, A Journey to the Center of the Earth

Thomas Jefferson
“On matters of style, swim with the current, on matters of principle, stand like a rock.”
Thomas Jefferson

Brian Jacques
“Even the strongest and bravest must sometimes weep. It shows they have a great heart, one that can feel compassion for others."

—Cornflower”
Brian Jacques, Redwall
