G.K. Chesterton
“Religious liberty might be supposed to mean that everybody is free to discuss religion. In practice it means that hardly anybody is allowed to mention it.”
G.K. Chesterton

Fernando Pessoa
“To have opinions is to sell out to youself. To have no opinions is to exist. To have every opinion is to be a poet.”
Fernando Pessoa, Libro del desasosiego

G.K. Chesterton
“I am not absentminded. It is the presence of mind that makes me unaware of everything else.”
G.K. Chesterton

Michael Crichton
“Briefly stated, the Gell-Mann Amnesia effect is as follows. You open the newspaper to an article on some subject you know well. In Murray's case, physics. In mine, show business. You read the article and see the journalist has absolutely no understanding of either the facts or the issues. Often, the article is so wrong it actually presents the story backward—reversing cause and effect. I call these the "wet streets cause rain" stories. Paper's full of them.
In any case, you read with exasperation or amusement the multiple errors in a story, and then turn the page to national or international affairs, and read as if the rest of the newspaper was somehow more accurate about Palestine than the baloney you just read. You turn the page, and forget what you know.”
Michael Crichton

G.K. Chesterton
“If there were no God, there would be no atheists.”
G.K. Chesterton
