Thomas Sowell

I love, love, love Thomas Sowell. Not that I want to pick out china with him, but I love his insights, lifetime of wisdom, and his amazing way with words. This is how he sums up society:

“Each new generation born is in effect an invasion of civilization by little barbarians, who must be civilized before it is too late.”

I mean, seriously, how true is that?! If you never teach your 2-year-old that there are things in the world that do not belong to him or her, they’ll just keep thinking that! Come to think of it, I’ve met adults like that…which just proves his point. 🙂
