29 Ben Carson Quotes That Will Shake Your World

I’ll be honest with you — I don’t know that much about politics. In fact, until recently, I had no idea who Ben Carson is and why he is so well-known. However, that all changed when I came across some Ben Carson quotes while doing my morning read. I was more than pleasantly surprised with his way of thinking and so, I began to read all about him.

Next thing I know, I had spent hours and hours reading Ben Carson’s books and researching his personal life. What I found really interesting is that he is a retired neurosurgeon, which gives him a unique perspective on life and God. I think that his medical experience is what helps him understand more about the average citizen than the majority of politicians do.

I was never expecting to get so interested in politics by simply reading some quotes. But to spread the knowledge further, I made up a list of the most significant Ben Carson quotes. And while they might not make you a Ben Carson fan, I hope they will at least make you see the world differently.
