Henry James

Life is,
in fact, a battle.
Evil is insolent and strong; folly defiant; beauty rare.
Goodness apt to be weak; wickedness to carry the day.
Imbeciles to be in great places, people of sense in small.
And mankind generally unhappy.
But the world as it stands is no illusion, no evil dream of a night.
We wake up to it again for ever and ever.
We can neither forget it nor deny it
nor dispense with it.
Quoted in Saul Alinsky, Rules for Radicals.

Collateral damage

When the oil from Iran shuts down, so will Europe.

Impeach Bush

Or else apologize to Nixon.
He only bugged the DNC, and erased 8 minutes of tape.
