The revival of interest in virtue/character as distinct from rules/principles has also created space for a renewed, if hesitant, interest in loyalty." - John Kleinig

"For memetics to be a reasonable research programme, it should be the case that copying, and differential success in causing the multiplication of copies, overwhelmingly plays the major role in shaping all or at least most of the contents of culture.

See, all of that came out of tremendous pain and hurt, rejection, loss, alienation, and abandonment. What I'm doing is I'm expressing my pain and hope at the same time." - Cecil Williams

So here I was, a 19-year-old playing King Henry." - Keith Carradine

"Journalism is a great profession. It's complicated now. People talk about the demise of investigative reporting.

Ultimately, the importance of newspapers can't be replaced." - Seymour Hersh
