Dave McKean Quotes

"I like the adventures because you know that when they say, "Ive got a plan," and then they tell you, you know its not going to work. And when they say, "Ive got a plan," and they dont tell you, you know it is going to work, and its all very exciting. I thought real life might be like that for a while, so I didnt tell anybody what I wanted to happen, but it didnt make any difference. I knew I was kiddin meself."

Quotes About War Slaughterhouse Five

"I felt after I finished Slaughterhouse-Five that I didnt have to write at all anymore if I didnt want to. It was the end of some sort of career. I dont know why, exactly. I suppose that flowers, when theyre through blooming, have some sort of awareness of some purpose having been served. Flowers didnt ask to be flowers and I didnt ask to be me. At the end of Slaughterhouse-Five…I had a shutting-off feeling…that I had done what I was supposed to do and everything was OK." - Author: Kurt Vonnegut

Quotes About Counterfeiting

"We may test the hypothesis that the State is largely interested in protecting itself rather than its subjects by asking: which category of crimes does the State pursue and punish most intensely—those against private citizens or those against itself?The gravest crimes in the States lexicon are almost invariably not invasions of private person or property, but dangers to its own contentment, for example, treason, desertion of a soldier to the enemy, failure to register for the draft, subversion and subversive conspiracy, assassination of rulers and such economic crimes against the State as counterfeiting its money or evasion of its income tax.Or compare the degree of zeal devoted to pursuing the man who assaults a policeman, with the attention that the State pays to the assault of an ordinary citizen. Yet, curiously, the States openly assigned priority to its own defense against the public strikes few people as inconsistent with its presumed raison detre." - Author: Murray N. Rothbard

Quotes About Foresight

"**New business concepts are always, always the product of lucky foresight.**Thats right - the essential insight doesnt come out of any dirigiste planning process; it comes form some cocktail of happenstance, desire, curiosity, ambition and need. But at the end of the day, there has to be a degree of foresight -- a sense of where new riches lie. So radical innovation is always one part fortuity and one part clearheaded vision.[first-line bold by author][2002] p.23" - Author: Gary Hamel

Quotes About Pro Life And Pro Choice

"Stars — spectacular representations of living human beings — project this general banality into images of permitted roles. As specialists of apparent life, stars serve as superficial objects that people can identify with in order to compensate for the fragmented productive specializations that they actually live. The function of these celebrities is to act out various lifestyles or sociopolitical viewpoints in a full, totally free manner. They embody the inaccessible results of social labor by dramatizing the by-products of that labor which are magically projected above it as its ultimate goals: power and vacations — the decisionmaking and consumption that are at the beginning and the end of a process that is never questioned. On one hand, a governmental power may personalize itself as a pseudostar; on the other, a star of consumption may campaign for recognition as a pseudopower over life. But the activities of these stars are not really free, and they offer no real choices." - Author: Guy Debord

Quotes About Darwin Natural Selection

"IDers argue that such traits, involving many parts that must cooperate for that trait to function at all, defy Darwinian explanation. Therefore, by default, they must have been designed by a supernatural agent. This is commonly called the "God of the gaps" argument, and it is an argument from ignorance. What it really says is that if we dont understand everything about how natural selection built a train, that lack of understanding itself is evidence for super-natural creation." - Author: Jerry A. Coyne
