Stephen Armstrong Quotes

"The morgue is a Victorian update of a system established by Alfred the Great. Its the place where certain deaths are resolved - those where the cause is unclear or is the result of some intended or accidental violence. The bodies are almost always victims in some way - of crime, suicides and car crashes, but also victims of loneliness. Its where you go if you die alone in your flat and your body lies undisturbed for days. Its where you go if no one knew you were dying and no GP attended your final hours. Its where you go if no loved one held your hand as you slipped away. In one way or another, then, all the people who pass through this room are the people who die screaming."

David Denby Quotes

"Whether white, black, Asian, or Latino, American students rarely arrive at college as habitual readers, which means that few of them have more than a nominal connection to the past. It is absurd to speak, as does the academic left, of classic Western texts dominating and silencing everyone but a ruling elite or white males. The vast majority of white students do not know the intellectual tradition that is allegedly theirs any better than black or brown ones do. They have not read its books, and when they do read them, they may respond well, but they will not respond in the way that the academic left supposes. For there is only one ‘hegemonic discourse in the lives of American undergraduates, and that is the mass media. Most high schools cant begin to compete against a torrent of imagery and sound that makes every moment but the present seem quaint, bloodless, or dead."

Quotes About Living Conditions

"The great age of the earth will appear greater to man when he understands the origin of living organisms and the reasons for the gradual development and improvement of their organization. This antiquity will appear even greater when he realizes the length of time and the particular conditions which were necessary to bring all the living species into existence. This is particularly true since man is the latest result and present climax of this development, the ultimate limit of which, if it is ever reached, cannot be known." - Author: Jean Baptiste Lamarck
