Suzanne Stone Maretto: Quote for April 29, 2009

You're not anybody in America unless you're on TV. On TV is where we learn about who we really are. Because what's the point of doing anything worthwhile if nobody's watching? And if people are watching, it makes you a better person.
from: To Die For (1995)

Albert Einstein: Quote for April 28, 2009

It is, in fact, nothing short of a miracle that the modern methods of instruction have not yet entirely strangled the holy curiosity of inquiry; for this delicate little plant, aside from stimulation, stands mainly in need of freedom; without this it goes to wrack and ruin without fail. It is a grave mistake to think that the enjoyment of seeing and searching can be promoted by means of coercion and a sense of duty.

Harvey Milk: Quote for April 27, 2009

How do you teach homosexuality? Is it like French? I was born of heterosexual parents, taught by heterosexual teachers, in a fiercely heterosexual society. So why then am I homosexual? And, no offense meant, if it were true that children mimic their teachers, we'd have a hell of a lot more nuns running around.

Frank Herbert: Quote for April 26, 2009

I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.
from: Dune (1965 Novel)

Sister Aloysius Beauvier: Quote for April 25, 2009

"Frosty the Snowman" espouses a pagan belief in magic. The snowman comes to life when an enchanted hat is put on his head. If the music were more somber, people would realize that the images are disturbing and the song heretical.
from: Doubt (2008)
Meryl Streep acted as Sister Aloysius Beauvier
Philip Seymour Hoffman appears in this clip acting as Father Brendan Flynn.

Woody Allen: Quote for April 24, 2009

We stand today at a crossroads: One path leads to despair and utter hopelessness. The other leads to total extinction. Let us hope we have the wisdom to make the right choice.

John F. Kennedy: Quote for April 22, 2009

When power leads man toward arrogance, poetry reminds him of his limitations. When power narrows the areas of man's concern, poetry reminds him of the richness and diversity of his existence. When power corrupts, poetry cleanses, for art establishes the basic human truths which must serve as the touchstone of our judgment.

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8: Quote for April 21, 2009

For everything there is a season,
And a time for every purpose under heaven:
A time to be born, and a time to die;
A time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal;
A time to break down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh;
A time to mourn, and a time to dance;
A time to throw away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
A time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to seek, and a time to lose;
A time to keep, and a time to throw away;
A time to tear, and a time to sew;
A time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
A time to love, and a time to hate,
A time for war, and a time for peace.

Professor Lampley: Quote for April 20, 2009

It's as probable for a tornado traveling through a junkyard to produce Buckingham Palace than for life to emerge from the "Big Bang." But emerge it did into the hands of man.

John Lennon: Quote for April 19, 2009

The basic thing nobody asks is why do people take drugs of any sort? Why do we have these accessories to normal living to live? I mean, is there something wrong with society that's making us so pressurized, that we cannot live without guarding ourselves against it?

Father: Quote for April 18, 2009

There is a disease deep in the heart of man. Its symptom is hate. Its symptom anger. Its symptom is rage. Its symptom is war. The disease is human emotion. But, Libria, I congratulate you. For there is a cure for this disease. At the cost of the dizzying highs of human emotion, we have suppressed its abysmal lows. And you as a society have embraced this cure: Prozium.
from: Equilibrium (2002)
Sean Pertwee acted as Father
The hidden rulers who run our world want to use prescription drugs to dumb down our human emotions. It's much easier to control us. Ideally, they want us to act just like the submissive Librians in this movie.
