Book cover for Virgil Wander

J. Mark Bertrand
“Those two little words -- says you -- are the most powerful argument in any discipline: theology, philosphy, even domestic harmony. They are powerful because they are true. Whenever you say something, it is you who says it. You. And what do you know?”
J. Mark Bertrand, Rethinking Worldview: Learning to Think, Live, and Speak in This World

Giordano Bruno
“They dispute not in order to find or even to seek Truth, but for victory, and to appear the more learned and strenuous upholders of a contrary opinion. Such persons should be avoided by all who have not a good breastplate of patience.”
Giordano Bruno

Michael Palin
“I am very cautious of people who are absolutely right, especially when they are vehemently so.”
Michael Palin, Diaries 1969-1979: The Python Years

Steve Martin
“Some people have a way with words, and other people...oh, uh, not have way.”
Steve Martin

“It is clear that the individual who persecutes a man, his brother, because he is not of the same opinion, is a monster.”
