In order to do better than that, you have to change the way you think." - Fred Brooks

And don't gods reflect their creators' society? The Greeks had a huntress goddess, and gods of agriculture and war and love. What else would we have but a god of giving, of merchandising, and of consumption?" - Donald E Westlake
