  • ⋅Human nature is not of itself vicious. /Thomas Paine

  • ⋅When men yield up the privilege of thinking, the last shadow of liberty quits the horizon. /Thomas Paine
  • ⋅It is error only, and not truth, that shrinks from inquiry. /Thomas Paine
  • ⋅All national institutions of churches, whether Jewish, Christian or Turkish, appear to me no other than human inventions, set up to terrify and enslave mankind, and monopolize power and profit. /Thomas Paine
