Necronomicon: Quote for October 31, 2011

Legend has it that it was written by the dark ones: NecronomiconEx-Mortis. Roughly translated The Book of the Dead. The Book served as a passageway to the evil worlds beyond.

It was written long ago, when the seas ran red with blood. It was this blood that was used to ink the book. In the year 1300 A.D. the Book disappeared.
from: Evil Dead II (1987)
H.P. Lovecraft used the Necronomicon in many of his stories.

Emily Dickinson: Quote for October 29, 2011

One need not be a Chamber — to be Haunted —
One need not be a House —
The Brain has Corridors — surpassing
Material Place —

Far safer, of a Midnight Meeting
External Ghost
Than its interior Confronting —
That Cooler Host.

Far safer, through an Abbey gallop,
The Stones a'chase —
Than Unarmed, one's a'self encounter —
In lonesome Place —

Ourself behind ourself, concealed —
Should startle most —
Assassin hid in our Apartment
Be Horror's least.

The Body — borrows a Revolver —
He bolts the Door —
O'erlooking a superior spectre —
rnOr More —

Noam Chomsky: Quote for October 28, 2011

All over the place, from the popular culture to the propaganda system, there is constant pressure to make people feel that they are helpless, that the only role they can have is to ratify decisions and to consume.

Dr. Sherri Tenpenny: Quote for October 27, 2011

The money isn't really to be made in the vaccine industry. The money is made by Big Pharma with all of the drugs that are given to treat and address all the illnesses that are subsequent to the side effects of the vaccines.

True health cannot come from a needle. Injecting people with something to try to keep them well is a 200 year mistake.

Edward Leedskalnin: Quote for October 26, 2011

All girls below sixteen should be brand new. If a girl below sixteen cannot be called brand new any more, it is not the girl's fault; the mamma is to blame! It is the mamma's duty to supervise the girl to keep those fresh boys away.
from: A Book in Every Home (Book 1936)

Dr. Alan Cantwell: Quote for October 25, 2011

Nowadays, scientists hunt for "ancestor" viruses of HIV in chimps in the African wild and ignore all the immunosuppressive viruses that were created in virus laboratories shortly before AIDS. No consideration is given to any of these lab viruses as possible man-made ancestors of the many "strains" of HIV (and HIV-2) that jumped species to produce AIDS in humans.

idel Castro: Quote for October 24, 2011

The ever more sophisticated weapons piling up in the arsenals of the wealthiest and the mightiest can kill the illiterate, the ill, the poor and the hungry, but they cannot kill ignorance, illness, poverty or hunger.

Emile Zola: Quote for October 23, 2011

Civilization will not attain to its perfection until the last stone from the last church falls on the last priest.

Jamie Lee Curtis: Quote for October 22, 2011

Modern women are just bombarded. There's nothing but media telling us we're all supposed to be great cooks, have great style, be great in bed, be the best mothers, speak seven languages, and be able to understand derivatives. And we don't really have women we're modeling after, so we're all looking for how to do this.

Walter Bagehot: Quote for October 21, 2011

You may talk of the tyranny of Nero and Tiberius, but the real tyranny is the tyranny of your next-door-neighbor...Public opinion is a permeating influence and it exacts obedience to itself; it requires us to think other men’s thoughts, to speak other men’s words, to follow other men’s habits.

Mark Twain: Quote for October 20, 2011

But who prays for Satan? Who, in eighteen centuries, has had the common humanity to pray for the one sinner that needed it most?

Albert Einstein: Quote for October 19, 2011

A man's ethical behavior should be based effectually on sympathy, education, and social ties; no religious basis is necessary. Man would indeed be in a poor way if he had to be restrained by fear of punishment and hope of reward after death.

George Orwell: Quote for October 18, 2011

All the war-propaganda, all the screaming and lies and hatred, comes invariably from people who are not fighting.

Dan Rather: Quote for October 17, 2011

The dream begins with a teacher who believes in you, who tugs and pushes and leads you to the next plateau, sometimes poking you with a sharp stick called "truth."

Don Miguel Ruiz: Quote for October 16, 2011

Death is not the biggest fear we have; our biggest fear is taking the risk to be alive -- the risk to be alive and express what we really are.

Christopher Columbus: Quote for October 12, 2011

And they know neither sect nor idolatry, with the exception that all believe that the source of all power and goodness is in the sky, and they believe very firmly that I, with these ships and people, came from the sky, and in this belief they everywhere received me, after they had overcome their fear.
Columbus is talking about the people of the "New World."

Steve Jobs: Quote for October 11, 2011

Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything -- all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure - these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart. ... Stay hungry. Stay foolish.

Ernestine Rose: Quote for October 10, 2011

It is an interesting and demonstrable fact, that all children are atheists and were religion not inculcated into their minds, they would remain so.
