Jonathan Ames Quotes

"I wondered where the person was who had taken my place, who wanted to know what news people had been told. Im always looking for the person who replaces me, who thinks the things I do, who fills in for me when Im not there. I know there is someone younger than me doing what I did and someone older doing what I will do, and someone my age being just like me."

Quotes About Written Communication

"Yet the possibility of information storage, beyond what men and governments ever had before, can make available at the touch of a button a mans total history (including remarks put on his record by his kindergarten teacher about his ability and character). And with the computer must be placed the modern scientific technical capability which exists for wholesale monitoring of telephone, cable, Telex and microwave transmissions which carry much of todays spoken and written communications. The combined use of the technical capability of listening in on all these forms of communications with the high-speed computer literally leaves no place to hide and little room for privacy." - Author: Francis August Schaeffer

Quotes About Note Writing

"I think as the world changes, we have to keep up. We have to note what is happening, and I think writing has always had a powerful corrective influence and possibility.

Quotes About Moral Absolutism

"George Bush made a mistake when he referred to the Saddam Hussein regime as evil. Every liberal and leftist knows how to titter at such black-and-white moral absolutism. What the president should have done, in the unlikely event that he wanted the support of Americas peace-mongers, was to describe a confrontation with Saddam as the lesser evil. This is a term the Left can appreciate. Indeed, lesser evil is part of the essential tactical rhetoric of todays Left, and has been deployed to excuse or overlook the sins of liberal Democrats, from President Clintons bombing of Sudan to Madeleine Albrights veto of an international rescue for Rwanda when she was U.S. ambassador to the United Nations. Among those longing for nuance, moral relativism—the willingness to use the term evil, when combined with a willingness to make accommodations with it—is the smart thing: so much more sophisticated than cowboy language." - Author: Christopher Hitchens

Quotes About Ruinous
