The Emigrants by W.G. Sebald
" My tale was heard and yet it was not told,
My fruit is fallen, and yet my leaves are green,
My youth is spent and yet I am not old,
I saw the world and yet I was not seen;
My thread is cut and yet it is not spun,
And now I live, and now my life is don...

Mark Twain
“The trouble ain't that there is too many fools, but that the lightning ain't distributed right.”
Mark Twain

Edward Abbey
“What we need now are heroes and heroines, about a million of them, one brave deed is worth a thousand books. Sentiment without action is the ruin of the soul.”
Edward Abbey

Samuel Johnson
“I hate mankind, for I think myself one of the best of them, and I know how bad I am.”
Samuel Johnson

H.L. Mencken
Democracy is a pathetic belief in the collective wisdom of individual ignorance. No one in this world, so far as I know—and I have researched the records for years, and employed agents to help me—has ever lost money by underestimating the intelligence of the great masses of the plain people. Nor has anyone ever lost public office thereby.”
H.L. Mencken, Notes on Democracy

Thomas Paine
“When men yield up the privilege of thinking, the last shadow of liberty quits the horizon.”
Thomas Paine
