Aldous Huxley
“Words can be like X-rays if you use them properly -- they’ll go through anything. You read and you’re pierced.”
Aldous Huxley, Brave New World

Terry Pratchett
“Steal five dollars and you're a common thief. Steal thousands and you're either the government or a hero.”
Terry Pratchett, Going Postal

Milan Kundera
“Yes, suddenly I saw it clearly: most people deceive themselves with a pair of faiths: they believe in eternal memory (of people, things, deeds, nations) and in redressibility (of deeds, mistakes, sins, wrongs). Both are false faiths. In reality the opposite is true: everything will be forgotten and nothing will be redressed. The task of obtaining redress (by vengeance or by forgiveness) will be taken over by forgetting. No one will redress the wrongs that have been done, but all wrongs will be forgotten.”
Milan Kundera, The Joke

Camille Paglia
“The Earth is littered with the ruins of empires that believed they were eternal.”
Camille Paglia

Terry Pratchett
“Build a man a fire, and he'll be warm for a day. Set a man on fire, and he'll be warm for the rest of his life.”
Terry Pratchett, Jingo
