  1. Nancy Pelosi:

    You demonize...we call it the wrap-up smear, you smear somebody with falsehoods and all the rest, and then you merchandise it and then you write it and say, See, it's reported in the press that this, this, and this... so they have that validation that the press reported the smear and then it's called a wrap-up-smear and the merchandise is the press' report on the smear we made. It's a tactic, and it's self-evident.

  2. Mary Baker Eddy:

    Error is a supposition that pleasure and pain, that intelligence, substance, life, are existent in matter. Error is neither Mind nor one of Mind's faculties. Error is the contradiction of Truth. Error is a belief without understanding. Error is unreal because untrue. It is that which stemma to be and is not. If error were true, its truth would be error, and we should have a self-evident absurdity --namely, erroneous truth. Thus we should continue to lose the standard of Truth.

  3. US Declaration of Independence:

    We hold these truths to be self-evident that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

    We have a good shot on goal with HE, we want to shoot the puck. If we do that and we score, then our other desires in the field of cannabinoid therapeutics can become self-evident.

  5. Nancy Pelosi:

    If the president brings up, he wants them to investigate something on his political opponent, that is self evident that it is not right. You don't ask foreign governments to help us in our elections. That's what we tried to stop with Russia.
