Dave Gorman Quotes

"In 1803, President Jefferson oversaw the purchase of this land from the French for $15 million. It doesnt sound like much for an area three times the size of France itself but given that theyd stolen it from the Native Americans in the first place, I suppose they couldnt grumble. Once some debts had been wiped and estate agents had taken their commission, Napoleons France ended up pocketing a little more than $8 million. Which is about how much it cost Pepsi Cola to secure the services of Britney Spears. Times have changed."

Quotes About Java

"Što se više udaljavamo i raskidamo veze sa svijetom pismenosti, svijetom napisane riječi, svijetom složenosti i nijanse, svijetom ideja i pojmova i zamjenjujemo ga oku ugodnim, umirujućiim slikama, fantazijama, sloganima, celebrityjima, pohlepom za nasiljem, to smo sve bliži urušavanju i imploziji. Kako nastavljamo propadati, a patnje nam narastaju, poput ljubitelja hrvačkih spektakla što se organiziraju u sklopu World Wresting Entertainmenta, ili ljudi što brkaju pornografiju s ljubavlju, počinjemo žudjeti za ugodom, umirenjem i ljepotom opsjene. Opsjene u nama bude osjećaj ugode. To postaje naša stvarnost." - Author: Chris Hedges
