Famous quotes containing the word mythology:

    Through the mythology of Einstein, the world blissfully regained the image of knowledge reduced to a formula.
    Roland Barthes (1915–1980)

    Love, love, love—all the wretched cant of it, masking egotism, lust, masochism, fantasy under a mythology of sentimental postures, a welter of self-induced miseries and joys, blinding and masking the essential personalities in the frozen gestures of courtship, in the kissing and the dating and the desire, the compliments and the quarrels which vivify its barrenness.
    Germaine Greer (b. 1939)

    If science fiction is the mythology of modern technology, then its myth is tragic.
    Ursula K. Le Guin (b. 1929)
