“Books and all forms of writing are terror to those who wish to suppress the truth.”
“The greatest threat to freedom is the absence of criticism.”
“The hand that dips into the bottom of the pot will eat the biggest snail.”
“Power is domination, control, and therefore a very selective form of truth which is a lie.”
“And I believe that the best learning process of any kind of craft is just to look at the work of others.”
“The man dies in all who keep silent in the face of tyranny.”
