Amenable Quotations

Language is one component of the human cognitive capacity which happens to be fairly amenable to enquiry. So we know a good deal about that.
Noam Chomsky

John Stuart Mill

It's worth noting that invoking God as the entity who set our universe in motion isn't contradicted by the data.

Ashley Judd
