Elbert Hubbard
“So long as governments set the example of killing their enemies, private individuals will occasionally kill theirs.”
Elbert Hubbard, Elbert Hubbard's Scrap Book

Dave Eggers
“But while Sasha told us that in America even the most successful men can have but one wife at once--my father had six--and talked about escalators, indoor plumbing, and the various laws of the land, he did not warn us that I would be told by American teenagers that I should go back to Africa. ”
Dave Eggers, What is the What
