“Quote Unquote”

June 3, 2016 § 2 Comments

“Widespread ignorance bordering on idiocy is our new national goal. … The ideal citizen of a politically corrupt state … is a gullible dolt unable to tell truth from [bs]. An educated, well-informed population, the kind that a functioning democracy requires, would be difficult to lie to, and could not be led by the nose by the various vested interests running amok in this country.” – Charles Simic

“The educated differ from the uneducated as much as the living from the dead.” – Attributed to Aristotle

“The mind is not a vessel to be filled, but a fire to be kindled.” – Plutarch
