    "Perhaps men of genius are the only true men. In all the history of the race there have only been a few thousand real men. And the rest of us -- what are we? Teachable animals. Without the help of the real man, we should have found out almost nothing at all. Almost all the ideas with which we are familiar could never have occurred to minds like ours. Plant the seeds there and they will grow; but our minds could never spontaneously have generated."
    -Aldus Huxley

    Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. – C. S. Lewis

    the characteristic part of any man's teaching is what is novel and heretical in it, and not what he and his audience take for granted.
