Favorite Quotes – 2017 – Post #24

“Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.”

– Mark Twain

My two cents, but please share yours:

There seem to be so many majorities these days.


  1. Ha! That’s a wonderful quote. And a good warning, I think. 🙂

    However, to answer *you*, I’d have said there seem to be so many *minorities* these days. We’re no longer just people, or Americans – we’re divvied up into hundreds of tiny pieces, many at each other’s throats. Very tiresome. ‘Live and let live’ seems to have fallen away.

    • Great point, Aunt Mary! Are populists (new grassroots folks, as opposed to the establishment) or Republicans or Democrats the majority? So hard to keep the players and their agendas straight. 🙂 Cheers, Ashley

  2. I don’t have to worry about being part of the majority. As a Christian, conservative, and Republican, I’ve always been part of the minority. Even when Republicans win an election, if you add in the Christian part and the conservative part, I’m still in a minority.

    • But you are also an American, David. So, you do belong to one of the many majorities in this country. 🙂 Cheers, Ashley
