"It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends upon his not understanding it!"
from I, Candidate for Governor: And How I Got Licked (1935),
by Upton Sinclair
"It does no take courage, Quixote.
to slaughter windmills in a windy world
or tilt against entrepreneurs.
It is a waste of breath
to criticize vast corporations
The difficult thing
is to sit still
like a child in the yard
while the whole bleak catastrophe of winter
descends like a glacier into the soul."
from Soliloquy to Absent Friends
by D.G. Jones
