From Ilya Kaminsky's poem "American Tourist,"
... When Moses
broke the sacred tablets on Sinai, the rich
picked the pieces carved with
"adultery" and "kill" and "theft,"
and the poor got only "No" "No" "No."
"That which has been believed by everyone, always and everywhere, has every chance of being false."
- Paul Valery (1871-1945), French poet, "Tel quel I,"1943
"The race of men, while sheep in credulity, are wolves for conformity."
- Carl Van Doren (1885-1950) , American editor and writer, "Why I Am an Unbeliever."
"There ain't no answer. There ain't going to be any answer. There never has been an answer. That's the answer."
- Gertrude Stein (1874-1946), American writer.
