[I See Manuscripts And Books That Are Spoiled For The Literary Reader Because They Are One Long Stream Of Top-of-the-head Writing, A Writer Telling A Story Without Concern For Precision Or Freshness In The Use Of Language. Some Of This Storytelling Reads As If It Were Spoken Rather Than Written, Stuffed With Tired Images That Pop Into The Writer's Head Because They Are So Familiar. The Top Of The Head Is Fit For Growing Hair, But Not For Generating Fine Prose.]

Adam Hall Quotes

"A gun is psychologically a penis-substitute and a symbol of power: the age-range of toy-shop clientele begins at about six or seven, rises sharply just before puberty and declines soon after the discovery of the phallus and its promise of power. From then on, guns are for kids and for the effete freaks and misfits who must seek psycho-orgasmic relief by shooting pheasants."

Quotes About Aflatoxin

"Much of my early career was spent working with two of the most toxic chemicals ever discovered, dioxin and aflatoxin. I initially worked at MIT, where I was assigned a chicken feed puzzle. Millions of chicks a year were dying from an unknown toxic chemical in their feed, and I had the responsibility of isolating and determining the structure of this chemical. After two and a half years, I helped discover dioxin, arguably the most toxic chemical ever found. This chemical has since received widespread attention, especially because it was part of the herbicide 2,4,5-T, or Agent Orange, then being used to defoliate forests in the Vietnam War."T.Colin Campbell" - Author: T.

"If art is not to be life-enhancing, what is it to be? Half the world is feminine--why is there resentment at a female-oriented art? Nobody asks The Tale of Genji to be masculine!
