    The snake that cannot shed its skin perishes. Likewise those spirits who are prevented from changing their opinions; they cease to be spirits.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    The question mark is alright when it is all alone when it
    is used as a brand on cattle or when it could be used
    in decoration but connected with writing it is
    completely entirely completely uninteresting.... A
    question is a question, anybody can know that a
    question is a question and so why add to it the
    question mark when it is already there when the
    question is already there in the writing.
    Gertrude Stein (1874–1946)

    Researchers, with science as their authority, will be able to cut [animals] up, alive, into small pieces, drop them from a great height to see if they are shattered by the fall, or deprive them of sleep for sixteen days and nights continuously for the purposes of an iniquitous monograph.... “Animal trust, undeserved faith, when at last will you turn away from us? Shall we never tire of deceiving, betraying, tormenting animals before they cease to trust us?”
    Colette [Sidonie Gabrielle Colette] (1873–1954)

    He that but fears the thing he would not know
    Hath by instinct knowledge from others’ eyes
    That what he feared is chanced.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
