I hope no one reading this book thinks that "The exception proves the rule" means that if you have an exception, it means the rule is true. That`s just bugnutty. I had it explained to me as "The exception tests the rule." Also not true. The exception does not test the rule - it disproves the rule.

Penn Jillette

A book can be as dangerous as a sword in the right hands.

George R. R. Martin

George Orwell

Tell a devout Christian that his wife is cheating on him, or that frozen yogurt can make a man invisible, and he is likely to require as much evidence as anyone else, and to be persuaded only to the extent that you give it.

Sam Harris

Jasper Fforde

No one who can read, ever looks at a book, even unopened on a shelf, like one who cannot.

Charles Dickens

There`s no trouble in this world so serious that it can`t be cured with a hot bath, a glass of whiskey, and the Book of Common Prayer.
