Start of the Week Quotations

It's a late quotation update today; I woke up sick and then had my desktop die in the morning, so the week got off to a rocky start.

"Most of the change we think we see in life is due to truths being in and out of favour." - Robert Frost, American poet, 1874-1963

"Bach almost persuades me to be a Christian." - Roger Fry, English art critic, 1866-1934

"The Soviet Union has indeed been our greatest menace, not so much because of what it has done, but because of the excuses it has provided us for our failures." - J. William Fulbright, American politician, 1905-95

"The salary of the chief executive of the large corporation is not a market reward for achievement. It is frequently in the nature of a warm personal gesture by the individual to himself."
"Trickle-down theory - the less than elegant metaphor that if one feeds the horse enough oats, some will pass through to the road for the sparrows."
- J. K. Galbraith, Canadian-American economist, 1908-2006
