Midweek Quotations

Although quotations have only recently returned, this will once again be the last quotations post for a few weeks as I head off to visit my family in BC on Thursday.

"Food comes first, then morals." - Bertolt Brecht, German dramatist, 1898-1956

"Politics are usually the executive expression of human immaturity." - Vera Brittain, English writer, 1893-1970

"The essence of science: ask an impertinent question, and you are on the way to a pertinent answer." - Jacob Bronowski, Polish-born mathematician and humanist, 1908-74

"Everybody favours free speech in the slack moments when no axes are being ground." - Heywood Broun, American journalist, 1888-1939
