You were a fool: I think a woman fetching a man's slippers is a disgusting sight: did I ever fetch your slippers? I think a good deal more of you for throwing them in my face. No use slaving for me and then saying you want to be cared for: who cares for a slave?"
Author: George Bernard Shaw

The new ethos that culture jamming taps into is go-for-the-corporate-jugular."
Author: Naomi Klein

Author: Tom Robbins

Author: Zhang Yimou
