Thomas Hobbes was an English political philosopher and became famous for his influential book, The Leviathan. Hobbes believed that humans were born cruel, greedy, and selfish which required a strong centralized government to prevent chaos. Hobbes' political views greatly influenced the founding of the Federalist movement and United Stated Constitution.

Thomas Hobbes Quotes

Such is the nature of men, that howsoever they may acknowledge many others to be more witty, or more eloquent, or more learned; yet they will hardly believe there be many so wise as themselves.

Science is the knowledge of consequences, and dependence of one fact upon another.

The obligation of subjects to the sovereign is understood to last as long, and no longer, than the power lasteth by which he is able to protect them.
