"We used to think that secrecy was perhaps the greatest enemy of democracy, and as long as there was no suppression or censorship, people could be trusted to make the informed decisions that would preserve our free society, but we have learned in recent years that the techniques of misinformation and misdirection have become so refined that, even in an open society, a cleverly directed flood of misinformation can overwhelm the truth, even though the truth is out there, uncensored, quietly available to anyone who can find it."
-Daniel Dennett

"The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing."
-Socrates

"Man... Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived."
-Dalai Lama

"Homo sapiens, the first truly free species, are about to decommission natural selection, the force that made us.... Soon we must look deep within ourselves and decide what we wish to become."
-Edward O. Wilson
