Ken Kesey
“All I know is this: nobody's very big in the first place, and it looks to me like everybody spends their whole life tearing everybody else down.”
Ken Kesey, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

“Besides, since impotency in this act is sometimes due to coldness of nature, or some natural defect, it is asked how it is possible to distinguish whether it is due to witchcraft of not. Hostiensis gives the answer in his Summa (but this must not be publicly preached): When the member is in no way stirred, and can never perform the act of coition, this is a sign of frigidity of nature; but when it is stirred and becomes erect, but yet cannot perform, it is a sign of witchcraft.”
Heinrich Kramer, Malleus Maleficarum

George Bernard Shaw
“All great truths begin as blasphemies.”
George Bernard Shaw, Annajanska the Bolshevik Empress

Gustave Le Bon
“Isolated, he may be a cultivated individual; in a crowd, he is a barbarian—that is, a creature acting by instinct.”
Gustave Le Bon, The Crowd; study of the popular mind

Taslima Nasrin
“It is said that peace is the basic tenet of all religion. Yet it is in the name of religion that there has been so much disturbance, bloodshed and persecution. It is indeed a pity that even at the close of the twentieth century we've had to witness such atrocities because of religion. Flying the flag of religion has always proved the easiest way to crush to nothingness human beings as well as the spirit of humanity.”
Taslima Nasrin, Lajja: Shame
