When you see this post, post a couple of quotations from your own favorite writers. These should be people you read over and over again, not people who had one great idea; go ahead and do it from memory, mistakes and all.

Paraphrased and shortened for clarity.  "This is the most shameful part of all, that they are not ashamed to be proved wrong by the facts."  The Apology of Socrates by Plato.

"We are here to do good for others.  What the others are here for, I don't know.  W.H. Auden

"I have never attributed to Nature a purpose or a goal, or anything that could be understood as anthropomorphic. What I see in Nature is a magnificent structure that we can comprehend only very imperfectly, and that must fill a thinking person with a feeling of humility." Richard Dawkins

"I understand what makes a woman think that any man is better than nothing.  I just don't understand what makes a woman think that she's got nothing."  Aaron Sorkin via Jeremy Goodwin on Sports Night.  (Yes, from a tv show, so what?.)
