Quotes by Thomas W. Knowles  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“In the person of Quanah Parker, an extraordinary man in whom the blood of two strong peoples flowed, the Lone Star and the Comanche Moon at last found common ground.”
Thomas W. Knowles, They Rode for the Lone Star, Volume 1

“Charged with the mission of operating beyond the boundaries of civilization with minimal support and no communication from higher authority, they lived and often died by the motto, 'Order first, then law will follow.”
Thomas W. Knowles, They Rode for the Lone Star, Volume 1

“The history written, taught, and sworn to as ‘the unvarnished truth’ by the establishment—any establishment, left or right, conservative or liberal, capitalist or socialist or fascist—is generally revisionist, narrow in perspective, monolithic, and agenda-driven. In the worst case, it consists of one part denial and one part propaganda—in other words, a self-serving pack of lies.”
Thomas W. Knowles
