Robert Louis Stevenson: Quote for July 31, 2008

I have done my fiddling so long under Vesuvius that I have almost forgotten to play, and can only wait for the eruption and think it long of coming. Literally no man has more wholly outlived life than I. And still it's good fun.

Joe Macbeth: Quote for July 30, 2008

First rule in the kitchen: respect. See this animal. This animal was noble, highly intelligent, feeling, and died for us. Never forget that. ...(Cuts up the head of a pig)... Ears, cheek, tongue, bone; no waste! That, in a word, is respect.

Eros: Quote for July 25, 2008

Because all you of earth are idiots. First was your firecracker, a harmless explosive. Then your hand grenade: you began to kill your own people, a few at a time. Then the bomb. Then a larger bomb: many people are killed at one time. Then your scientists stumbled upon the atom bomb, split the atom. Then the hydrogen bomb, where you actually explode the air itself. Now you can arrange the total destruction of the entire universe served by our sun: The only explosion left is Solarmanite.
-- Eros
Dudley Manlove acted as Eros

Sara Teasdale: Quote for July 24, 2008

When I am dead, and over me bright April
Shakes out her rain drenched hair,
Tho you should lean above me broken hearted,
I shall not care.
For I shall have peace.
As leafy trees are peaceful
When rain bends down the bough.
And I shall be more silent and cold hearted
Than you are now.
from: Suicide note to her lover who left her. (1933)

Eleanor Arroway: Quote for July 23, 2008

Occam's razor is a basic scientific principle that says that all things being equal, the simplest explanation tends to be the right one....So what's more likely? That an all-powerful, mysterious God created the Universe, and decided not to give any proof of his existence? Or, that He simply doesn't exist at all, and that we created Him, so that we wouldn't have to feel so small and alone?
from: Contact (1997)
Jodie Foster acted as Eleanor Arroway

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad: Quote for July 20, 2008

God is aware of all reality. All researchers and scholars are loved by God. So I hope there will be a day where these scholars and scientists will rule the world and God himself will arrive with Moses and Christ and Muhammad to rule the world and to take us toward justice.
from: Columbia University Speech (September 24, 2007)

A Dead Soldier: Quote for July 19, 2008

I've seen men get killed, sir, for a lie, women and children killed for a lie. I've seen my friends killed for a lie. I was killed for a lie.

Thomas Jefferson: Quote for July 18, 2008

If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.

Simon O'Reily: Quote for July 17, 2008

(Regarding the Power of Banks.)
We can step in and take anything we financed anytime we want to, that's ownership. Market force means exactly that. We can seize assets, we can use the IMF to force countries to pay their loans back, we can react against any government until they do exactly what it is we want them to do.
from: The Bank (2001)
Anthony LaPaglia acted as Simon O'Reily
