Anesthetic Quotations

Egotism is the anesthetic that dulls the pain of stupidity.
Frank Leahy

The trouble is not that schools don't work; they do. They're excellent machines for achieving historically accepted purposes. In suburban schools are children of the rich, who grow up to privilege and anesthetic oblivion to pain - and who then use the servants produced by ghetto schools.
Jonathan Kozol

Joan Rivers

David Foster Wallace

Saul Bellow
