Carl Jung

Voltaire

Kurt Vonnegut

The only function of economic forecasting is to make astrology look respectable.
John Kenneth Galbraith

If one were to bring ten of the wisest men in the world together and ask them what was the most stupid thing in existence, they would not be able to discover anything so stupid as astrology.
