Lethal Quotations

Markets are lethal, if only because of ignoring externalities, the impacts of their transactions on the environment.
Noam Chomsky

Snowboarding is an activity that is very popular with people who do not feel that regular skiing is lethal enough.
Dave Barry

Arrogance, ignorance, and incompetence. Not a pretty cocktail of personality traits in the best of situations. No sirree. Not a pretty cocktail in an office-mate and not a pretty cocktail in a head of state. In fact, in a leader, it's a lethal cocktail.
Graydon Carter

Ideas are only lethal if you suppress and don't discuss them. Ignorance is not bliss, it's stupid. Banning books shows you don't trust your kids to think and you don't trust yourself to be able to talk to them.
Anna Quindlen
