“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

It's getting bad out there.

“Before I begin, let me make it terribly clear that I'm not one of those awful people who actually loves wisdom. What people do behind closed doors, such as trying to make sense, is their own affair. But when they try to make sense in public, they should be locked up. I'm not having that sort of thing on my street! This isn't one of those obscene sentences that actually tries to make sense.
