Terry Pratchett
“A book has been taken. A book has been taken? You summoned the Watch," Carrot drew himself up proudly, "because someone's taken a book? You think that's worse than murder?"
The Librarian gave him the kind of look other people would reserve for people who said things like "What's so bad about genocide?”
Terry Pratchett, Guards! Guards!

G.K. Chesterton
“It does not, in the conventional phrase, accept the conclusions of science, for the simple reason that science has not concluded. To conclude is to shut up; and the man of science is not at all likely to shut up.”
G.K. Chesterton, The Thing: Why I am a Catholic

Thomas Sowell
“The first lesson of economics is scarcity: there is never enough of anything to fully satisfy all those who want it. The first lesson of politics is to disregard the first lesson of economics.”
Thomas Sowell

Thomas Sowell
“People will forgive you for being wrong, but they will never forgive you for being right—especially if events prove you right while proving them wrong.”
Thomas Sowell, Is Reality Optional? and Other Essays

Chris  Cannon
“Jack shoved his finger in my face. "You can talk to any other guy at this school, but you are not allowed to talk to him."

Had my brother learned nothing in the last sixteen years? Apparently not, and for that he would pay. I turned back to the source of my brother's irritation.

"Grant, do you have a girlfriend who would mind if you kissed me to piss off my brother?”
Chris Cannon, The Boyfriend Bet
