    Speech and prose are not the same thing. They have different wave-lengths, for speech moves at the speed of light, where prose moves at the speed of the alphabet, and must be consecutive and grammatical and word-perfect. Prose cannot gesticulate. Speech can sometimes do nothing more.
    —James Kenneth Stephens (1882–1950)

    We are doomed to cling to a life even while we find it unendurable.
    —William James (1842–1910)

    The contented and economically comfortable have a very discriminating view of government. Nobody is ever indignant about bailing out failed banks and failed savings and loans associations.... But when taxes must be paid for the lower middle class and poor, the government assumes an aspect of wickedness.
    —John Kenneth Galbraith (b. 1908)

    I saw God! Do you doubt it?
    Do you dare to doubt it?
    I saw the Almighty Man! His hand
    Was resting on a mountain!
    —James Kenneth Stephens (1882–1950)
