„You know, the average Chinese factory worker must think Americans are insane.“

—  Daniel Suarez, Daemon

Fonte: Daemon (2006), Chapter 45: Respawning, Character: Laney Price
Contexto: You know, the average Chinese factory worker must think Americans are insane. Picture this: you work at a plant that makes Halloween stuff—you know, like, rubber severed heads. And you're all like: Americans decorate their homes with severed heads? These fuckers are savages, man.

„Whosoever seeks the truth will not proceed by studying the writings of his predecessors and by simply accepting his own good opinion of them. Whosoever studies works of science must, if he wants to find the truth, transform himself into a critic of everything he reads.“

—  Alhazen Arab physicist, mathematician and astronomer 965 - 1039

He must examine tests and explanations with the greatest precision and question them from all angles and aspects.

„He who would dig right down to the truth must simplify; his faith must be brutally simple, or he is lost.“

—  Henri Barbusse French novelist 1873 - 1935

Light (1919), Ch. XXII - Light
Contexto: He who would dig right down to the truth must simplify; his faith must be brutally simple, or he is lost. Laugh at the subtle shades and distinctions of the rhetoricians and the specialist physicians. Say aloud: "This is what is," and then, "That is what must be."

„Only the dreamer shall understand realities, though, in truth, his dreaming must not be out of proportion to his waking!“

—  Margaret Fuller American feminist, poet, author, and activist 1810 - 1850

"Free Hope" p. 127.
Summer on the Lakes, in 1843 (1844)
Contexto: Who sees the meaning of the flower uprooted in the ploughed field? The ploughman who does not look beyond its boundaries and does not raise his eyes from the ground? No — but the poet who sees that field in its relations with the universe, and looks oftener to the sky than on the ground. Only the dreamer shall understand realities, though, in truth, his dreaming must not be out of proportion to his waking!

„The king said that mankind must not work for themselves. The priest said that mankind must not think for themselves. One forged chains for the hands, the other for the soul.“

—  Robert G. Ingersoll Union United States Army officer 1833 - 1899

The Liberty of Man, Woman and Child (1877)
Contexto: Nothing has been left undone by the enemies of freedom. Every art and artifice, every cruelty and outrage has been practiced and perpetrated to destroy the rights of man. In this great struggle every crime has been rewarded and every virtue has been punished. Reading, writing, thinking and investigating have all been crimes.
Every science has been an outcast.
All the altars and all the thrones united to arrest the forward march of the human race. The king said that mankind must not work for themselves. The priest said that mankind must not think for themselves. One forged chains for the hands, the other for the soul.
