Book cover for Prague Winter: A Personal Story of Remembrance and War, 1937-1948
“This wicked people,” admitted Pope Pius II in the fifteenth century, “has one good quality—it is fond of learning. Even their women have a better knowledge of scripture than Italian bishops.”

Zombie, Ohio by Scott Kenemore
When an animal encounters a hungry tiger in the forest, it has two options: fight or flight. (And when you’re faced with a tiger, both of these choices are pretty lousy and usually get you eaten.) A human, on the other hand, when surprised by a tiger, understands that the tiger is thinking too. That the tiger has needs and wants. The tiger needs food. It wants a nice dinner, and wants it with the least effort possible. Sure, a human’s first instinct might—like an animal’s—be fight or flight, but a human will also understand the tiger. This may, for example, lead a threatened human to reason: ...more

Have His Carcase by Dorothy L. Sayers

John F. Kennedy
“The great enemy of truth is very often not the lie--deliberate, contrived and dishonest--but the myth--persistent, persuasive and unrealistic. Too often we hold fast to the cliches of our forebears. We subject all facts to a prefabricated set of interpretations. We enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought.

[Commencement Address at Yale University, June 11 1962]
