[We Need To Make Some Dramatic, Concrete Moves To Escape The Materialism That Seeps Into Our Minds Via Diabolically Clever And Incessant Advertising. We Have Been Brainwashed To Believe That Bigger Houses, More Prosperous Businesses, And More Sophisticated Gadgets Are The Way To Joy And Fulfillment. As A Result, We Are Caught In An Absurd, Materialistic Spiral. The More We Make, The More We Think We Need In Order To Live Decently And Respectably. Somehow We Have To Break This Cycle Because It Makes Us Sin Against Our Needy Brothers And Sisters And, Therefore, Against Our Lord. And It Also Destroys Us. Sharing With Others Is The Way To Real Joy.]

Julian Jaynes Quotes

"O, what a world of unseen visions and heard silences, this insubstantial country of the mind! What ineffable essences, these touchless rememberings and unshowable reveries! And the privacy of it all! A secret theater of speechless monologue and prevenient counsel, an invisible mansion of all moods, musings, and mysteries, an infinite resort of disappointments and discoveries. A whole kingdom where each of us reigns reclusively alone, questioning what we will, commanding what we can. A hidden hermitage where we may study out the troubled book of what we have done and yet may do. An introcosm that is more myself than anything I can find in a mirror. This consciousness that is myself of selves, that is everything, and yet is nothing at all - what is it?And where did it come from?And why?"

Charles Augustin De Coulomb Quotes

"Moreover, the sciences are monuments devoted to the public good; each citizen owes to them a tribute proportional to his talents. While the great men, carried to the summit of the edifice, draw and put up the higher floors, the ordinary artists scattered in the lower floors, or hidden in the obscurity of the foundations, must only seek to improve what cleverer hands have created."
