“For men first had eyes but could not see; they had ears but could not hear; instead; like the shapes of dreams they conducted all matters in confusion for their whole long life… they lived like swarming ants in the sunless hollows of caves.”
Aeschylus, Prometheus Bound
“Any technological advance can be dangerous. Fire was dangerous from the start, and so (even more so) was speech – and both are still dangerous to this day – but human beings would not be human without them.”
“There is a powerful force within us, an unilluminated part of the mind – separate from the conscious mind that is constantly at work molding our thought, feelings, and actions.”
“Birds sing after a storm; why shouldn’t people feel as free to delight in whatever remains to them?”
“Unexpressed emotions will never die.
They are buried alive and will come forth later in uglier ways.”
“I don’t think I’m easy to talk about.
I’ve got a very irregular head.
And I’m not anything that you think I am anyway.”
