    Saying “I feel guilty” is a mere form of words. Saying “I feel ashamed” is not.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)

    The ways in which most men get their living, that is, live, are mere makeshifts, and a shirking of the real business of life,—chiefly because they do not know, but partly because they do not mean, any better.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Throughout human history, the apostles of purity, those who have claimed to possess a total explanation, have wrought havoc among mere mixed-up human beings.
    Salman Rushdie (b. 1948)
