Bertolt Brecht
“If we could learn to look instead of gawking,
We'd see the horror in the heart of farce,
If only we could act instead of talking,
We wouldn't always end up on our arse.
This was the thing that nearly had us mastered;
Don't yet rejoice in his defeat, you men!
Although the world stood up and stopped the bastard,
The bitch that bore him is in heat again.”
Bertolt Brecht, The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui

Orson Scott Card
“What a laugh, though. To think that one human being could ever really know another. You could get used to each other, get so habituated that you could speak their words right along with them, but you never know why other people said what they said or did what they did, because they never even know themselves. Nobody understands anybody.”
Orson Scott Card, Shadow of the Hegemon

Orson Scott Card
“I don't know of a soul who doesn't maintain two separate lists of doctrines - the ones they believe they believe; and the ones that they actually try to live by.”
Orson Scott Card, Shadow of the Hegemon

Orson Scott Card
“Yes, I'm paranoid and xenophobic. That's how I got this job. Cultivate those virtues and you too, might rise to my lofty station.”
Orson Scott Card

“You don't have to eat the entire turd to know that it's not a crab cake.”
Orson Scott Card, Shadow of the Hegemon
