Quotes[edit]

  • My own personal theory is that this is the very dawn of the world. We're hardly more than an eyeblink away from the fall of Troy, and scarcely an interglaciation removed from the Altamira cave painters. We live in extremely interesting ancient times.
    I like this idea. It encourages us to be earnest and ingenious and brave, as befits ancestral peoples; but keeps us from deciding that because we don't know all the answers, they must be unknowable and thus unprofitable to pursue.
  • I continue to feel that if you're going to go on being this stupid, you should try to be more polite; or alternately, if you're going to go on being this rude, you should try not to say such dumb things.
