A Quote by George F. Will on civilization, knowledge, and universe

We know next to nothing about virtually everything. It is not necessary to know the origin of the universe; it is necessary to want to know.  Civilization depends not on any particular knowledge, but on the disposition to crave knowledge.

A Quote by George F. Will on budgets, change, country, culture, inclusion, judgment, limits, money, politics, restaurants, and taxes

Recently the country has seen too much of our legislators, seeing them as a gaggle of check-kiting, judge-smearing deadbeats who don't pay their restaurant bills but raise their pay in the middle of the night. Many Americans-this columnist included-hitherto said tax increases are justified by the budget deficit now say: Give that mob more money? Never. Not a nickel of new taxes until term limits change the political culture on Capital Hill.

A Quote by George F. Will on debate, government, ideas, individuality, liberty, power, and value

[Libertarian presidential candidate André Marrou's] idea is that "government power is opposed to individual liberty." Must we still debate such sophomoric notions?... Besides, liberty, although very important, is not the only value.
