Barbara Ehrenreich :

Some of us still get all weepy when we think about the Gaia Hypothesis, the idea that earth is a big furry goddess-creature who resembles everybody’s mom in that she knows what’s best for us.

“Down there – he said – are people who will follow any dragon, worship any god, ignore any inequity. All out of a kind of humdrum, everyday badness.

They accept evil not because they say yes, but because they don’t say no.”
― Terry Pratchett, Guards! Guards!

“If cats looked like frogs we’d realize what nasty, cruel little bastards they are. Style. That’s what people remember.” ― Terry Pratchett, Lords and Ladies

― Ramakrishna, Sayings of Sri Ramakrishna
