On Myths

"A myth is an image in terms of which we try to make sense of the world."

-- Alan Watts

Security is mostly superstition...

"Security is mostly superstition, it does not exist in nature nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than out right exposure. To keep our faces towards change and behave as free spirits in the presence of fate is strength undefeatable."

-- Helen Keller

Only after the last tree has been cut down.

"Only after the last tree has been cut down. Only after the last river has been poisoned. Only after the last fish has been caught. Only then you will find that money cannot be eaten."

-- Cree Indian

The American Public on Iraq

"Sixty-five percent of the American public aren't antiwar. They're just anti-losing. You see, if we were winning the war in Iraq, they'd all be for it. If we had brought democracy, they'd be cheering the President. It wouldn't matter that we violated international law. It wouldn't even matter that we lied about weapons of mass destruction. We'd be winning. God bless America. Ain't we good? USA, USA! But we're losing, so they're against Iraq."

-- Scott Ritter

The Church says the Earth is flat.

"The Church says the Earth is flat. But I know that it is round. For I have seen the shadow on the moon. And I have more faith in a shadow than in the Church."

-- Ferdinand Magellen

Those who think themselves good...

"Verily, I have laughed at those you think themselves good because they have no claws."

-- Nietzsche

This nation will remain...

"This nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave."

-- Elmer Davis

Chomsky on our intellectual culture

"An important fact about our intellectual culture is that people can read and write about our long-term policies of defending market democracy from the Communist threat without laughing. That takes no little talent. It is real tribute to the educational institutions and the information system."

-- Noam Chomsky

The second hand of a clock...

"Trying to determine what is going on in the world by reading newspapers is like trying to tell the time by watching the second hand of a clock."

-- Ben Hecht

Woody Allen on Good & Evil

"It seemed the world was divided into good and bad people. The good ones slept better. . . while the bad ones seemed to enjoy the waking hours much more."

-- Woody Allen
