Evans
Legislators who are of even average intelligence stand out among their colleagues ... A cultured college president has become as much a rarity as a literate newspaper publisher. A financier interested in economics is as exceptional as a labor leader interested in the labor movement. For the most part our leaders are merely following out in front; they [only] marshal us in the way that we are going.
Evans quotes
Freedom of speech and freedom of action are meaningless without freedom to think. And there is no freedom of thought without doubt.
Evans
A man who won't lie to a woman has very little consideration for her feelings.




Evans quotes
Wisdom is meaningless until our own experience has given it meaning.
Evans
There is wisdom in the selection of wisdom.
Evans quotes
Lying is an indispensable part of making life tolerable.
Evans
Words are one of our chief means of adjusting to all the situations of life. The better control, the more successful our adjustment is likely to be.
Evans quotes
There is no necessary connection between the desire to lead and the ability to lead, and even less the ability to lead somewhere that will be to the advantage of the led.
Evans
We may be through with the past, but the past is not through with us.
