Quotations on thinking, speaking and writing (14)

Those fanatics all that we do would undo;
Down the fanatic, down the clown;
Down, down, hammer them down,
Down to the tune of O’Donnell Abu.
~ W.B. Yeats (pictured, in a 1911 photograph by George Charles Beresford)

“Few of us can easily surrender our belief that society must somehow make sense. The thought that the state has lost its mind and is punishing so many innocent people is intolerable. And so the evidence has to be internally denied.”
~ Arthur Miller

For every complex problem there is an answer that is clear, simple, and wrong.
~ H.L. Mencken

The Takeaway: Keep an open mind. Have a great day.
